Lip Gloss -NYX -Butter Gloss in Eclair

If Vanilla Cream Pie is bubblegum pink, then this is cotton candy pink. At first, I thought they looked so similar that owning both would be pointless, but that's not the case. This feels buttery, looks glossy, and smells sweet. I like this color quite a bit. I would repurchase. I've included a picture for reference.


Lip Gloss -NYX -Butter Gloss in Vanilla Cream Pie

This is bubblegum pink and glossy. It feels like butter on my lips so it lives up to its name. It smells sweet and has a doe foot applicator. The lasting power is OK. This was 4.49 at Target. I would repurchase. I've uploaded a picture for reference.

Lipstick -NYX -Lip Lingerie

I am a fan of these lip colors, and have already gone back to purchase more. There a couple things I love about these lip colors and a couple things I don't- so depending on your tastes you may love or hate these (it seems people are really in or out with this product!!)

What I love- the shades are amazing. My nieces were visiting and started looking through my ,make-up. They put these on their lips...they died over the colors (apparently one of them looked a girl from Riverdale's shade!!!) The next day they both bought a couple of shades. They mix so beautiful too, so don't feel confined to what's in the tube- layer a couple of shades. Amazing.
They are a good price. If I can get a good lipcolor for 10 bucks or so I am happy. They go on smooth so you don't need to use a lot, these tube will last you.
I also feel they have a pretty good wear time. Maybe not all day, but I get a few hours out of them pretty easily.

What I don't love; the doe-foot applicator is just a NO! It's way to big for the product (pulls a ton out of the tube) and way too floppy to get a good line on the lips. I usually use it to get the color on, then use my finger or a small brush to distribute the color on the whole lip.
They can be a little drying. To me this is a drawback but not a deal breaker. I have a BITE lipcolor stick and it is so dry- I mean, sooo dry- I realize that the drying tends to sort of seal the product and make it last and is pretty common with long lasting mattes of all brands. There's a couple easy fixes for this- either swipe a very light coat of balm under your application, or use a little gloss or shine just on the center of the lips after the color has 'set' (about 5 minutes). I prefer the second of the two, as I like using a lipliner and then letting the color really stick to my lips.

Overall, I bought one...then went back for another, then went back for a third color. I currently have Urban Decay, Make-Up Forever and Bare Mineral matte lip colors that all go on very similar. This really feels like an equal to those products- I just wish the applicator were a little more on point!

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

on 12/12/2017 7:55:00 AM

foto

Not a fan. It's not the worst concealer I've had but it just doesn't work for me. It looks okay at first but ends up being all chalky and just meh. Plus I bought the wrong shade, so I'll be able to use it only in summer.
I like the Sephora brand High Coverage Concealer wand a lot more but it's quite expensive for a concealer so I was hoping to find something cheaper... I'll have to keep looking.


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

I am a bit surprised by the low rating for this product. For me it works quite well. It sets my make-up, creates a long lasting matte finish as promised. It is also absorbed quickly.

For the price, I'd say it goes beyond the expectations.

Eye Shadow -NYX -Hot Singles Eye Shadow (new formulation)

foto

I bought two of these because there was a sale going on at Ulta and the colors/packaging drew me in. I got these in "Bad Seed" (red) & Epic (purple). I did use another one in a gray shade a long time ago but I cannot remember what the name was.

I swatched them both, not very good but you can't always judge by a swatch on the arm.

I've been using Epic for quite some time but it's kind of difficult to apply. I always use eye primer but this requires applying it to the eye at least 3 times. It's very sheer and I didn't care for it. :/ it ended up going in the trash.

All in all, the packaging is cute but it's not worth the money and the color payoff isn't that great.

I'm going to try to use "Bad Seed" and give an update, but I don't have high hopes for it.


Lipstick -NYX -Lip Lingerie

I’ve bought two different shades of this product (Bedtime Flirt and Lace Detail) and the former had a significantly drier formula right out of the gate, to the point where I had to chuck it. While I do like the product, I’m iffy about buying more, because nudes are so difficult to pin down on my lips.

These lipsticks are very drying and can be flaky, yet they also feel slightly sticky around the inner portion of the lips. However, some people do not care about drying liquid lipsticks. I find that my adding a waxy lip-balm underneath I can make it work. The colour "embellishment" is gorgeous and I'm trying to find a colour dupe, I will only repurchase again if I am incapable of doing so.

Other -NYX -Pro foundation mixer

foto

I've only tried the white mixer so far. I really do like it- It's great being able to choose a formula and match it to me (within reason, of course) instead of buying a foundation I don't *love* just because it came in my colour. I hasn't affected my foundation performance or staying power at all either, although I'm only about a half a shade to a shade too pale for my teint miracle foundation so I don't have to use too much of the white mixer. I'm not sure if it would be different trying to bring a foundation up/down more than that, though. It can be a little difficult to blend with more dewy foundations, I always have to check that it is *all* mixed in, but it's not anything crazy.

Primer/ Corrector -NYX -Born to Glow Illuminating Primer

foto

I really do love this primer- I put it on either on top of a hydrating primer or directly on skin if i've run out. Gives a really nice 'glow' to your skin and it makes foundation look fabulous. It's absolutely great to find something SO kind to my dry skin too- It really don't add any texture at all from what I can see. The glow isn't obnoxious, glittery or comparable to a highlighter though, it's a very subtle 'radiant' sort of look.
I don't suffer from acne so I can't comment in that regard, but I do have quite sensitive skin and I had no problem using it even on bare, slightly irriated skin which is a huge plus. The smell is very... generic cosmetic smell, I suppose I could say? It doesn't smell perfumed.

All in all it's fantastic for the price.

Lipstick -NYX -Soft Matte Lip Cream in Rome

foto

I seem to be one of the few people who really don't like this product- I absolutely adored the colour of this particular one but that was really where the love ended. Application was a little patchy so it took a little longer than most lip products I use, but the finish started out really nice. Not two hours later though, it looked SO dry. Really didn't stand up to food at all, and I found patching the colour up not at all easy without it looking caked on.
I'm not a stranger to dried out lips, mine are quite bad in general but I use lip scrub and a balm then usually i'm golden even for liquid matt lipsticks. Not so much this one, though.

Eyeliner -NYX -Epic Ink Liner

on 12/10/2017 10:30:00 AM

The NYX Epic eyeliner is the best! It glides on easily, no smudges, has great color saturation, doesn't clump up, lasts all day. Best of all, it doesn't smudge! I have many allergies, my eyes water easily, but this liner stays put! At the end of the day it comes off easily with an eye makeup remover pad (Neutrogena). This is a dupe for Kat Von D and Mac. $7.99 is a remarkable price!

Brows -NYX -Micro Brow Pencil

I like this pencil because it gives a very natural, not drawn on look. The point of the pencil is easy to use, however I find that the pencil doesn't last long at all. It's a great price, but if you have to constantly replace it...............


Highlighters -NYX -Born to Glow Highlighting Palette

on 12/10/2017 7:27:00 AM

The NYX Born to Glow Highlighting Palette is a nice palette that contains a nice variety of colors that can be used for highlighting, shimmery blush, or even a bronzing look. I have more fair skin but I believe the colors in this palette could work well for a large variety of skin tones from fair to deep. The formula is very blendable as well as lasts well throughout the day. This is also a pretty decent value or a great starter set for someone just starting their makeup collection. My more detailed review with full swatches can be seen here:

Mascara -NYX -Za Za Zu Fiber Infused Luscious Volume

on 12/10/2017 2:21:00 AM

foto

If this is indeed a fiber mascara, I'm not finding any fibers in my tube. As far as I can tell, it's just a very dry normal mascara that's practically impossible to coax onto my lashes. It gives a bit of length and definition, but no volume whatsoever. I loved Doll Eye Volume Extreme, so I'm rather surprised that NYX managed to produce such a useless "volumizing" mascara.
