It really doesn’t give me the correction I need. My dark circle r medium but still the color isn’t pigmented enough to give me correction. Also the consistency is thick which I don’t prefer.

Eyeliner -NYX Professional Makeup -Professional Makeup Slide On Eye Pencil - All Colors

on 2/14/2018 9:04:00 PM

Pros : very smooth application
color is opaque (I had the brown one)
Cons : does transfer a bit (I have very oily eyelids)
needs to be sharpened (i hate wasting products)
I do find it on the expensive side (10$CAD)
It constantly broke on me.... i probably lost over 1/4 of the whole pen..

Will not repurchase simply because I'm a liquid liner girl. Those used to sharpen their eyeliners: you may wanna give this a try.

Palettes -NYX Professional Makeup -Brights Ultimate Shadow Palette

on 2/13/2018 2:40:00 PM

foto

I bought this product to use along side a neutral palette. I am very much about a more natural look but I also love colour and experimenting just a bit. I have tried pastel palettes since I wanted more toned down colours but all the ones I have tried lacked way too much pigment with the lighter shades. I use this palette very sparingly and it adds just the right amount of colour without being overpowering. It also looks great for a slightly glossy eye look. I use Vaseline- which admittedly isn’t the best- but it barely creases and the couple of creases are so small you can’t see them unless you are kiss close. This doesn’t run or move around on my face but it could be because I am only using them with a light hand. The price is amazing and although brands like urban decay will be more pigmented-especially if you use an eyeshadow brush- but because my skin is so fair it is better for me to have less pigmented bright eyeshadows.

Lipstick -NYX Professional Makeup -Lip Lingerie

I bought and returned Ruffle Trim and Bedtime Flirt. Both formulas are very drying - my mother noticed how dry my lips looked, and she never notices things about makeup - and as a result, they accentuate lip lines. Wear time is fine, it just looks bad.
As for color, neither of them really works on my light-medium (NC25 level) warm olive skin tone: Bedtime Flirt was described by the same makeup-blind parent as “sort of undertaker purple?”, and Ruffle Trim is brighter and more orangey than I’d like, while somehow also taking on a greyish-purple cast in some lights.

Eyeliner -NYX Professional Makeup -Epic Ink Liner

on 2/13/2018 11:54:00 AM

This is my favourite liner I’ve tried so far. Really black and pigmented, easy to make a thin line/flick with, and a handy brush tip applicator and it lasts ALL DAY. The only issue I have with it is that it’s kind of finicky. I don’t know if it’s because I’m storing it wrong but some days the ink comes out less pigmented, or bleeds whilst applying, or too much product comes out of the tip. On it’s good days, it’s honestly the most perfect liner ever. But I would suggest buying 2 of them at once if possible (maybe with a 2 for 1 sale or something) just in case one is acting up you still have a back up.

Mascara -NYX Professional Makeup -Le Frou Frou

This is the second NYX mascara I've tried (the other being Le Chick Flick, which was also disappointing). It promises volume and length but doesn't give either.

It did darken my lashes, so there's that; it made some lovely panda eyes as it wore off throughout the day. Totally not impressed, despite the cute name and the fact that other NYX products can be great.


Liquid -NYX Professional Makeup -Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation

I have been vegan since July of last year and I have been trying different drugstore cruelty free foundations.
I used to use Revlon Colorstay liquid foundation for combination /oily skin in the color 180 sand beige . That was my go to foundation although it's a heavy medium to full coverage foundation I loved it because it was sweat proof, water proof , the color selection it great and it comes in two formulas normal / dry and combo/oily . It dries fast and last a few months for me but not being cruelty free and now being vegan I searched for a animal cruelty free foundation and there are several brands and I did try a few. I have tried Elf, Milani and wet N wild . By far this is my favorite. I will say the color selection is impressive they have at least 24 colors . They only have one formula but I can use it. I do suggest using a primer and powder .The foundation is really liquidy which is different from the consistency from Revlon because Revlon is more like a pudding while this is more like melted ice cream. I love that you can have light to full coverage . The packaging is cute but do be careful you can easily spill it because when you take out the stopper there is a big whole and nothing preventing the product from spilling out I hope they work on that . You only get .43 oz of product which is much less than the usual 1oz with other brands but I have had it over 3 weeks and I still have plenty of product. Also it looks like your skin but better great for a no makeup look or full glam meaning they will not see makeup they will see you . It photographs well and does not oxidize . It also lasts at least 8 10 12 hours it can look cakey at the end of 10 to 12 hours but most foundations do .It goes for $13.99 at Ulta and is sold almost everywhere you can also purchase it online . I use the color buff . I also use my fingers to apply the foundation but you can use a sponge or brush . All in all I would recommend this foundation and NYX is an animal cruelty free brand available at most drugstores and Ulta and NYX online . I think it is worth checking out.

Other -NYX Professional Makeup -Pro foundation mixer

I bought the olive. I’m a true neutral olive so most foundations are either too orange or too yellow. A tiny dab of the olive changes the undertone to the perfect olive shade. A little more can make a too light foundation a tad darker. I recently bought Guerlain Lingerie De Peau Aqua Nude. They have a very limited shade range. I found #3N to be the right undertone but a little too light. The NYX mixer made it perfect without changing the foundation texture or quality. I use it with Nars St Moritz Tinted Moisturizer that always seemed slightly light and a little too yellow, but passable. Now it’s perfect. Just be careful - a little goes a long way. Literally a tiny dab is enough to change the undertone. A little more to make it darker. I’ve only used Olive so cannot speak as to other colors. Great product!

Eyeliner -NYX Professional Makeup -Gel Liner & Smudger

on 2/11/2018 2:52:00 PM

I bought this in white, so I can't comment on the quality of the other colors. But if you're looking for an opaque, long-lasting white gel eyeliner that wears comfortably, this is a great option.

I've used this with a brush that wasn't that great for doing eyeliner, but the thickness of this product made it really easy to control and place precisely. I imagine with a proper brush this would be super easy to use. I initially bought this for a concert, and I put the liner over a very bright pink/purple/blue eyeshadow look. The colors bled into the white a bit on the first layer (which I expected, considering they were shadows from the UD electric palette), but a second layer gave me a completely white, opaque wing. I imagine you could use this over a more neutral look and get away with just one layer. I really enjoyed how comfortable the liner is. I've used the NYX Vivid Brights liquid liner and that dries down to a very tight, dry finish that you can feel every time you blink and starts to crack after a while. This gel liner was pretty flexible and comfortable, and even though I used a few layers there was no cracking.

The staying power on this product is the real selling point, though. When I was applying it at first, I wiped the excess product from the brush onto my hand. I had liner on my hand until about 30 hours later- it withstood hand washing, showers, dishwashing... you name it. I even tried to scratch/scrape it off and it held tight. It did well on the eye too. I applied the liner around 3PM. I was sweating throughout the whole concert and my eyes were watering at some points from the false lashes, this didn't budge at all. I was lazy and didn't wash my makeup off and woke up the next morning around 10AM to still-perfect eyeliner. It is a bit difficult to remove with just face wash, but I used a cleansing oil and it came off pretty easily.

I'm probably never going to use the whole container, but if I somehow manage to and need another white gel liner, I would buy this in a heartbeat. It performs just as well as any high-end liner I have used (if not even better) for a fraction of the price.
