Primer/ Corrector -NYX Professional Makeup -First Base Primer Spray

This a another unneeded makeup product, but it adds hydration, which is always nice!

Primer/ Corrector -NYX Professional Makeup -Makeup Setting Spray - Matte Finish

on 9/12/2018 1:40:00 PM


I'm not sure if this does anything at all to mattify my face, but I just use it to add a bit hydration when I'm down with all the powders and stuff. It's an impulse product (something you think you need, but really don't)

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

The shade match for this is amazing! (Cappuccino)! The applicator is a little wonky and awkward, but the overall product is good product by NYX

Primer/ Corrector -NYX Professional Makeup -Soft Focus Primer

on 9/10/2018 7:29:00 PM


A primer which has a tint but isn’t shiny. God knows how many times I have asked for this but I was handed something glowy or highlighting. My skin is not bad. Some old scars from acne and some discoloration but nothing that is embarrassing. So I used to use a product by the name of Perfekt. They only sell this on line and majority of products have already been sold out. Not sure if the company will stick around for long but I loved the texture of the product which was like mousse. The product didn’t budge and it worked as a primer and did provide some hint of color. This is a better version of Perfekt at 1/4 of the price. It works even better. The coverage is obviously sheer but it is exactly what I need. I cannot wear heavy foundations any more. I am NC30 and fortunately, the Medium Beige was the exact match. Very happy with this product and highly recommend it to people with oily skin.

BB Cream -NYX Professional Makeup -BB Beauty Balm

on 9/10/2018 7:14:00 PM


I am NC30 and use the gold shade. I haven’t been a fan of BB creams because of my oily skin. When these were hot in the market, a year or two ago, I tried recommended brands but none lasted on my skin. A couple are still in my bathroom drawers gathering dust. So I tried this not having high hopes. To my surprise, this doesn’t my face greasy. In fact, I found it a bit drying which contradicts with the moisturizing claim. However, after a long day, I was super happy that my makeup didn’t move or melt. When I washed my face, I found my skin glowing and moisturized so I am not sure how it worked but it did. I highly recommend this to people with oily skin.

Primer/ Corrector -NYX Professional Makeup -Can't Stop Won't Stop Matte Primer

on 9/10/2018 9:07:00 AM


This is the true gem in the Cant Stop Won’t Stop range for me. I am next level oily. Always have been and most of my base makeup purchases are centered around correcting that. This is a dupe for Becca Evermatte Primer and Make Up For Ever Step 1 Mattifying primer. I swear this. It is so thick that I had to use pressure to squeeze out a good amount. It is so effective that I cannot use it with the accompanying foundation because that is too matte for me. So what we have here is the drugstore primer to extend the wear of every other foundation I have. So far I have paired this with my holy grail drugstore favorite, Maybelline Healthy Skin. And it extended the wear time 4 hours. I only needed to blot at night and the foundation was good as new after. Outstanding product. I will continue to pair it with others as I see fit.

Planning on Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless, Fenty Pro Filter, L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte, Colourpop Foundation, Diorskin Forever and Star Foundations, Kat Von D, Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation, Covergirl True Blend Matte Made and Wet N Wild Photo Focus next as they could use more mattification. I do not ever plan on pairing this with NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop, Beauty Bakerie Cake Mix, Estée Lauder Double Wear or Rimmel Stay Matte as those foundations are already more than enough mattification for me.

For all those who say primer is a scam, I disagree provided you have certain issues with your skin. This product speaks to 2 of those issues I have. It fills in pores and mattifies very well. I only use it on my nose, forehead and chin. So this will last a long time because I do not go overboard. I am glad this was a fall release as I doubt I will be able to use it during the winter when my skin is more dehydrated but still oily. I will continue to purchase this over and over.

Liquid -NYX Professional Makeup -Can't Stop Won't Stop Full Coverage Foundation

on 9/10/2018 8:50:00 AM


This foundation is Outstanding. I love all the shades available. Mahogany turned out to be best for me and baby when I tell you this is oily skinned love. I had no plans to purchase until all the reviews came in with people praising it for being matte and transfer proof. I will say that yes, this is matte as hell and I have oily skin. This is a long lasting option for me. If I wanted to just put on a foundation and not worry about checking it all day, this would be the one I gravitated towards. And let’s face it, that is my plan every day. To not have to check my makeup every second. I applied this with a beauty blender over the accompanying primer. Never again will I use them together. The mattress created cracks and no, I do not fault either of them. I will just save the primer for use with other foundations. This foundation does not need a primer unless you are super dry. And then you should use a hydrating one. For pores or line smoothing, I’d use a primer with this as well but that is it. I am giving this a 5 out of 5 because it definitely won’t stop. This is not a DoubleWear dupe. It is more matte than DoubleWear. And honestly I think $15 is high for a drugstore foundation but this is high end quality. Very well done and the only foundation from NYX that I will not be returning.

Lip Gloss -NYX Professional Makeup -Butter Gloss

on 9/9/2018 11:03:00 PM


I bought this in the shade Creme Brulee, but I definitely will be purchasing more of them in the future for sure. I normally like for my lip products to be fragrance free, but I like that this lipgloss has a nice vanilla sweet scent to it, that I don't find bothers me at all. Creme Brulee is the perfect pinky-nude shade that I have ever come across. It is awesome for using day or night. Also, I think that it is a shade that any skintone can wear. Now, the wearability of this lipgloss is no different than any other. Some of it will come off every time you eat or drink something. But, outside, of that I love the glossy look that it provides to my lips without it being too overstated.

This is one of the best lipgloss that I've ever come across and I definitely will be buying more in the future for sure!

Eye Primer -NYX Professional Makeup -Glitter Primer


I had this sitting in my drawer for a couple of months, and I I finally broke it out this week to give some glittery shadow something to stick to. It did have a lot of adhesion, which I was impressed by, but by the middle of the day (around 4 hours in) it started to crease really badly and the glitter was transferring above my crease as well. I patted it out a little with my fingers so I wouldn't look like I was melting, but it was not anywhere near ideal. I removed it after I got home, and once I was done washing my face my eyes were very itchy and my lids were starting to swell. For the next 24 hours or so, I had some kind of adverse reaction that was very unpleasant on my eyelids. I assume there's something in here that my skin is sensitive to, and I don't fault the product for that outright, but since the performance was also pretty terrible I feel confident giving this product one lippie.

Lipstick -NYX Professional Makeup -Extra Creamy Round Lipstick - Chaos

on 9/7/2018 12:26:00 PM


For reference, I have a very fair, cool skintone and high-contrast features (bright winter).

I’ve been searching high and low for my perfect red lipstick, a breed so elusive I must have bought at least ten tubes before finding the shade that works for me. I was looking for a very bright, discernably blue-based red, unfortunately most red lipsticks turn orange on me due to my cool undertones. Not so with Nyx’s Chaos! This lipstick is insanely pigmented, lasts a long time (it actually stains my lips a little!) and is incredibly cheap. The colour is very bright and cool without veering into pink territory. The texture is slightly glossy at first so if your lipstick has a tendency to bleed and smear, you would be well advised to use a lipliner and avoid rubbing your lips together in the hour following the application. The packaging is flimsy (my tube broke after a year) but this lipstick is so cheap and flattering that I am more than willing to buy it again.
Nyx seems to be discontinuing the Round Lipstick line so I’m hoping against hope that they won’t get rid of Chaos!

Concealers -NYX Professional Makeup -Professional Makeup Full Coverage Concealer Jar

on 9/6/2018 7:36:00 PM


I purchased this concealer online before you could get it in the UK and its still one of the best for coverage. I love the cute little jar but don't be fooled by it's size as you can quite a lot for the price. It's great for applying with a concealer brush and blends well with foundation.

Mascara -NYX Professional Makeup -Worth The Hype Colored Mascara

on 9/6/2018 7:21:00 PM


I bought the purple one. Bottom line, the purple color doesn't show up on my dark lashes.

Worth the Hype is a great mascara, I love the original black one. I have even repurchased it. Not surprisingly, this new purple version is pretty much the same. Makes my eyes look wide open and fluttery. Applies smoothly with no clumps, and it doesn't flake or smudge either. Gives more length than volume though. Basically it's the exact same formula, brush, etc as the original. The only reason I bought this was for the purple color. And it doesn't show up.

So I wouldn't buy this again. In fact I'm ready to give up on colored mascaras- lol!

Liquid -NYX Professional Makeup -Can't Stop Won't Stop Full Coverage Foundation

on 9/5/2018 1:15:00 AM


I was excited to try out this foundation...

The good... TONS of shades, affordable price, foundation pump included, and it is gym proof.

The bad... This foundation dries a bit deeper (with and without a primer). I love a matte, beat face ; however, this will make your face BONE dry. My face itched, burned, turned red, my face looked crepey, and felt very scaly. This foundation is drier than ELDW!! I even tried to add some Farsali Rose Gold Elixir, hydrating primers, and hydrating sprays. My face remained BONE dry. Needless to say, this foundation is difficult to remove.

I love NYX products , but this one ...no.

Lipstick -NYX Professional Makeup -Lip Lingerie

on 9/4/2018 9:25:00 PM


overall: 8.5/10

I have one of these, in the shade Ruffle Trim. It's a peachy-brown. I find that some liquid lipsticks are moussey and some are liquidy - this is one of the liquidy ones. I actually prefer that style of LL, I find them more comfortable than the moussey ones (eg. Soft Matte Lip Cream). This goes on opaque and dries quickly. It's comfortable and doesn't crack unless you apply too much. They're very reasonably priced and don't leak (something I've found prevalent in LLs and lip glosses).

I would purchase more shades.
