Eyeliner -NYX -matte liquid eyeliner

Closing in on 2018, there are a couple things about myself I've noticed this past year with regards to makeup specifically.. one is, the less effort, steps, tools, hassle involved, the better. There was a time when curiosity got the better of me and I tried gel liners, felt tip liners, all kinds of pencil liners.. and they all have their time and place and I keep them around for good measure.

But guess what?? Nothing beats the convenience of a really quick, bold, matte black liquid liner that doesn't smudge and lasts all day. How can you go wrong? Liquid liner is a Practice makes perfect sort of thing and a lot of people are intimidated by it because there is definitely room for error, but once you have it down, there is no other kind of eyeliner that looks as glamorous and goes on as quickly and smoothly. Of course that is just my opinion, but this Nyx matte liquid liner is a big part of the reason I say that. It is BOLD, matte, very long-wearing and doesn't bleed outside the line. It is user-friendly with a very fine, sharp point and very even distribution of product. It can create a thin line as easy as a thick one. If you prefer winged liner as I do much of the time, this is an excellent choice.

The price is very reasonable and it is now readily available at the drugstores. It is one of those drugstore products (along with my Coty Airspun loose powder, Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder, L'Oréal brow stylist definer and Cover Girl super sizer mascara), that I buy over and over again with TOTAL confidence that I'm getting as good, if not better quality than I would find at Sephora, and I don't feel the need to rock the boat and spend more, because WHY mess with the best??

Brows -NYX -Micro Brow Pencil

I use this pencil in ash brown, but I find it to have a surprisingly warm tone to it. Most of the line seems to be warm toned; however, though my brow colour is cooler, I can somehow get it to work.
I love using this in my brows especially on days when I'm running late, since it's so easy to fill in my brows and keep them looking natural but shapely.

My one complaint is that there doesn't seem to be that much product, and I feel like I'm frequently having to re-purchase this product, even when using it sparingly in my brows though on the daily.

However, I still keep buying it so I think that says something.

Overall, really like this product.


Lip Gloss -NYX -Professional Makeup Butter Gloss

I absolutely love these glosses! Such a smooth, non-sticky and seamless formula. Not to mention that their scent is amazing and the shade selection is better than your average lip gloss range as well. I've owned three different shades (Tiramisu, Devil's Food Cake and Madeleine) and they've all been consistent and great overall, although Madeleine did not end up being a color for me. Tiramisu is my perfect nude everyday gloss and I'm dying to repurchase it since it's sold out in many places (for a reason in my opinion, I love it.) Although Devil's Food Cake is a slightly darker gloss it's still easy to apply evenly and it wears nicely. Such comfortable and fun-to-wear glosses! Definitely the best lip gloss formula I've tried. I also like how the packaging shows the color of the gloss.

Liquid -NYX -Stay Matte but Not Flat Liquid Foundation

I use this foundatuon for a bit. It’s not for soft and dry, pale skin. The lightest shade is porcelain and it is dark, really, trust me. But quality is in a high level.😊

Concealers -NYX -HD Photogenic Concealer Wand (All Shades)

foto

I prefer a full coverage concealer and this one is medium coverage at best, but I like it to spot conceal minor blemishes and tone down other products that are just too dark on my fair skin. I love having the HD concealer in my makeup bag but if I get a bad blemish, I reach for something with more coverage than this.


Cleansers -NYX -Stripped Off Cleansing Balm

on 12/27/2017 2:11:00 PM

Compared to more pricey oil cleanse options (Dermalogica or Clinique), this is an efficient cleansing balm. Moisturising, very light floral fragrance (not too overpowering), it turns slightly milky when water is added and rinses off clean. It hasn't broken out my cystic acne prone skin yet, but then I'm not using it daily. Leaves a slight bit of residue. The only reason I wouldn't repurchase is because of the packaging - it feels unhygenic to dip fingers into the pot, especially when you're mid-makeup removal. I wish more oil cleansers would come in pump form, like the Dermalogica Precleanse Balm.


Pressed Powders -NYX -#NoFilter Finishing Powder

on 12/27/2017 3:56:00 AM

One of the worst powders I've tried... The problems began with the packaging: bulky and hard to open. When I got to loading the powder on a brush, it didn't want to pick it up. I tried with several brushes, and the result was the same: the powder was hard to pick up, and seemed chalky. It didn't want to apply evenly on the face either. After getting it on there, it began creasing almost right away. In only one hour, it looked like I had applied powdered clay instead of powder - it gathered into little islands on my face, made my foundation crease, and actually somehow made my foundation disappear, as I clearly had a completely naked spot across my nose - that never happens to my foundation when it's set with other powders. 3 hours after applying my makeup, it had melted so badly on my face that I decided to remove it and start anew. I realized I forgot to use my Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray last time, so I did that the second time around. The result was actually no different - maybe half an hour longer wear time.

I do not recommend this as it is hard to use, and I've tried it with different moisturizers, primers, with and without setting spray, and with and without foundation under - nothing worked well

Eye Shadow -NYX -Professional Makeup Love You So Mochi Eyeshadow Palette

on 12/27/2017 12:17:00 AM

The NYX Professional Love You So Mochi Eyeshadow Palette caught my eye because of the wide variety of colors it contains as well as the ability to use the palette and create multiple looks using only this palette (I don't like having to reach for another palette other than the one I'm using). The colors are beautiful and the texture is okay. They are slightly buildable and blendable but not as much as other NYX eye shadows I've used before. These eye shadows are more like glitter shadows or a glitter eye topper. I didn't find any of the shades to be matte despite that I could still make an entire look using only this palette. There isn't too much fallout during application but during the day you may notice some random sparkles. One more thought- definitely use a primer with this palette. My more detailed review and full swatches can be seen here:




Primer/ Corrector -NYX -Honey Dew Me Up Skin Serum and Primer

I use this primer in combination with my Porefessional by the benefits cosmetics. So first I apply the Porefessional and then I top this baby on my cheeks etc, let it dry and apply my foundation on top! It works like magic. Something about it really makes my skin look healthy and glowy. I love the pricing for this product, not so happy with the applicator but I don’t use that one anyway! OVERALL: TRY IT OUT!

I am currently on my 6th bottle of this one! I have tried so many concealers from Make up hd to Nars. But this one is seriously so cheap and it covers SO FREAKING WELL. I am talking acne scarring, sleepless nights of being an uni student. EVERYTHING IS COVERED WITH THIS BABY. I LOVE IT SO MUCH!

Brows -NYX -Brow Mascara

I use this to fill in my brows, just this, as my brows aren't too sparse and partly because I can't be bothered with using a brow pencil or powder. I do wipe a lot of the excess product off the brush because if I don't my brows would be way to dramatic, so that is a little of a downside.
