Concealers -NYX Professional Makeup -Dark Circle Concealer

on 8/12/2018 11:03:00 PM

I have dark circles and deep tear troughs under my eyes combined with some fine lines that get accentuated if drying concealers are used. I have tried a TON of correctors. Yellow, orange, salmon, peach etc. High end brands like Becca and Tarte to drugstore brands like ELF and Pixi. This so far is one of my top 3. It is not drying and does not accentuate lines, although it does crease a bit. The lightest shade is the most perfect pinkish colour to correct my dark circles for my super fair skin. The only con to this corrector is that it is not pigmented enough and I have to keep applying layers to get coverage and then have to go over with a regular concealer. If it were more medium-full coverage I’d be happy to use it alone because it does look natural. I will still likely repurchase though as the colour itself is the best i’ve found so far.

Eye Primer -NYX Professional Makeup -HD High Definition Eyeshadow Base

I bought this product a few weeks ago - just before I went on holiday to Italy (where it was pretty hot, so I could test it properly to see if it would smudge in this sweaty weather). It was €7,20 in a NYX store in Belgium - which is a fair price for this product I'd say. I've tried a few (budget) primers before (Essence, Catrice, HEMA and Artdeco) and none of those can do what this NYX primer can. I wore it on daily basis in Italy when I was wearing both eyeshadow and liner and my make-up did not smudge at all! Even though my skin got really quite sweaty, my eyeshadow didn't really crease and still looked really nice at the end of the day. Maybe it did fade a little - but no ugly smudging or creasing, so I'm happy. Not sure if the more expensive brands do even better - but compared to the ones I've tried; this one wins!

Lip Liners -NYX Professional Makeup -Slide On Lip Pencil all colors

I have this in nude suede shoes and it goes really well with mac liptensity clouds in my coffee and nyx butter gloss in fortune cookie. Anyways this glides on really velvety and the color is a nude warm pinky peach on me. It is slightly lighter than my natural lip color and does not wash me out but it does pull a tiny bit orange. I HATE lipsticks or liners that lean orange or too brown and this is a smidge too peachy. this was cheap and affordable, nyx is where its at with their lip liners. Its less than half the price of high end and works just as well. Dont sleep on nyx and try these out! Downside that it doesnt last too long on the lips. I wouldnt repurchase because i dont think ill finish this since i dont rock a nude lip often. But its still a pretty nude to have.

Lip Liners -NYX Professional Makeup -Slim Lip Pencil - Nude Beige 857

I am nc20 nw20 neutral fair skin. This can make me look muddy and weird if paired with a clear gloss because i cant pull off brown liners because i am on the fair end of light. I dont reach for this as much because it washed me out in an ashy brown way. formula is good though, I always invested in mac and nars lip liners but honestly nyx is just as good and less than half the price. Ulta has sales buy one get one half off so its around 4 dollars for one instead of mac 18 dollars per liner and back to mac does not include their liners. Nyx is where the liners are at ladies.

i wouldnt repurchase because i initially bought this to try out a brown liner and i realized it just looks weird on my skintone. this is a dupe for stripdown by mac. I didnt want to dish out 20 dollars for mac or nars so nyx is great to test out colors since they have all kinds of dupable ones.

edit- i found how to make this work, using this all over the lips gives me a weird ashy muddy look but i started to fill my lip with nyx nude suede shoe liner(nude pink peach) then pop nude beige only on the bottom center of my lips and the upper corners of my lips for a contoured lip look. it makes my lips look a lot bigger. it sounds crazy to be using 2 liners but i couldnt return this so i might as well make it work. this is a great shadow contour color for lips not so much as a lipliner to line the whole lip for my skintone.

Lip Gloss -NYX Professional Makeup -Butter Gloss

i gave 4 hippie because i don't like scented lip products. I have tried and really loved the fortune cookie color, tiramisu is a nice one and creme rule is a bit pinkier than my likings. Fortune cookie is a dupe for colourpop fairy floss and buxom white russian. Tiramisu is a neutral nude on the peachier side than creme brule. I gravitate towards nudes like fortune cookie because its a beige based. the formula is non sticky and very creamy. they are opaque and just overall a great gloss for its price. i would repurchase fortune cookie when i run out of colourpop fairy floss (i hate paying for shipping)

Some colors are nice, but they aren't really blendable overall and the shimmer shades are weak when used dry.

I have this in exotic and I truly love the color, it is a go-to. However, it makes my lips pretty dry and doesn't really last that long for a liquid lip.

Doesn't keep my skin matte and makes my foundation look AWFUL! The spray is also a bit agressive.

My eyebrows look and feel like they have hairspray on them, but I don't really mind. It isn't prefect at keeping every eyebrow in place, though it's better than nothing. I would love for the wans to be a bit smaller. It also kinda smells like glue, so maybe it is? I don't know.

I have dry skin in the winter and oily skin in the summer, so it would make sense to use it in summer. Even when I do so, sometimes it makes my skin look dry making any bit of foundtion and/or concealer catch onto the dry patches. Although it makes the skin smooth and fills the pores a bit, it doesn't make any difference in the oiliness of my skin as it was ment to.

Brows -NYX Professional Makeup -Tame and Frame Brow Pomade in Brunette

on 8/10/2018 12:37:00 AM

I really wanted to try an affordable brow pomade so I decided to try this, it's not bad but it's just not great. I think my problem with this is that you have to use a lot of product if you want a bolder, more intense brow. I think this pomade would be a lot better if it was just a tiny bit creamier. I ADORE the Micro Brow by NYX though! That's my all-time favorite brow product. Overall just not a huge fan of this !
Pros:
-Easy to use
-Affordable
-Good shade range
-You can get precise lines if you use a very thin brush
Cons:
-Can be hard to get very bold, feathery brows
-Not pigmented enough
-It's affordable but you need to use quite a bit of product
-I like creamier brow pomades
-I think it can be a tiny bit chunky sometimes if you use too much at once

Lipstick -NYX Professional Makeup -Soft Matte Lip Cream Cannes

on 8/9/2018 1:47:00 AM

Beautiful color, but it has a shiny-dry finish, not matte as advertised, and I don't like the formula. You need a lot of product for opacity, and then it takes a good 5-10 minutes to set, during which time it feels greasy, goopy and heavy like a lip gloss. Avoiding that feeling is half the reason I like matte lipsticks in the first place. Once it's set it doesn't transfer, but it also doesn't last very long considering that it is (supposedly) a matte, and it is exactly as drying as a real matte liquid lipstick would be. All the drawbacks of a matte + bonus extra drawbacks of cremes and glosses + not actually all that matte = no thanks in my book, no matter how pretty the color is.

I got the green primer for redness. It doesn't seem to do anything about my redness or help my makeup stay on longer. My skin seems more oily after an hour or two with this primer on than usual. Also it's been 3 days of wearing it and I am breaking out really bad after finally getting my skin to clear up and calm down! Waste of money
