I have this in Exotic, which can look either like a brownish burgundy or a burgundy plum, depending on your lip color and skin tone. It's a beautiful color, is affordable and cruelty free, has a fantastic wand and is highly pigmented.

The problem is that it makes my lips stick together like glue. O_O I literally have to wait for them to peel apart when I open my mouth.

So uh...no.

I tried putting Nyx's Liquid Suede Tea & Cookies on top of it since it's a different formula, but that doesn't work very well. Bummer, but at least their other products are great.

Since they're bunny savers by being cruelty free, they get 3 stars. Otherwise it would be 1 star for this product.


Lip Gloss -NYX -Professional Makeup Butter Gloss

I have a couple of these in Creme Brulee and Angel Food Cake. Creme Brulee is a very sheer nude while the AFC is a medium-toned mauve pink that is ever-so-slightly more opaque.

They're a little sticky but still much better than a lot of glosses on the market, and they're also quite moisturizing. I notice I don't have to exfoliate my lips as often when I wear these regularly.

They're really affordable and the brand is cruelty-free, so that's a win-win for us and the cute bunnies.

It doesn’t really do anything for my pores, however it holds in my makeup well.

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.

Feels nice on the face, easy to apply but gives a horrible flashback. Never bake with it.

Eyeliner -NYX -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 -Brights Ultimate Shadow Palette

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

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.

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 -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 -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 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.
