My mom tried this and gave it to me because she didn't like it and said it was too dying. When I tried it I at first really liked it. Good pigmentation. What I noticed though is that as it faded like any lip product would it started clumping up really weird. I really love the lip lingerie but these are just a no for me.


Eyeliner -NYX - Epic Ink Liner

I had trouble finding the perfect liquid liner (I can't use the dip ones because I'm kinda clumsy). I was previously using the Essence Superfine Pen Liner but the ink ran out within a week and I kept having to repurchase them. D:
Then I found this liner at Target one day. I was skeptical but...as crazy as it sounds, the packaging and description drew me in.

The cons of this are compared to the liner I was buying before, this is kind of expensive and it does add up after a while. It also took me a while to get used to a brush tip; beforehand I was using felt-tip liners.

However, I love this product because the liner is SO pigmented and I can attest it is waterproof (I've cried in it, also worn it in the rain). It also doesn't bleed.
I do struggle with winged liner (been doing my liner like that for a little over a year) more often than not, but it is a pretty forgiving product and when my wings do come out just the way I want, I can thank this product. I also love the fact this lasts all day and the pen doesn't run out of product quickly.

I have a few backups of this in case it gets discontinued (I really hope it doesn't) and I would get this liner over & over. <3

Blush -NYX - HD Blush - Taupe

Really good contour color for pale girls, looks like a very natural shadow under cheekbones. Originally purchased because of the reviews here, and I'm so glad I took a shot at it. Will definitely repurchase over and over!

Lipstick -NYX - Pin-up Pout in Corset

on 10/5/2017 6:01:00 PM

Corset is a matte mauve nude lipstick. It glides smoothly on the lips. It stays fairly long on the lips. I pair it with a mauve nude lip liner (mauve in nyx).Love it!

SHADE - YELLOW!

Unfortunately, this did not work for me.
I read that the formula was changed recently and coconut oil was added to the mix which caused breakouts for many girls. I can't tell how it was before the reformulation as I bought it for the first time after said reformulation, but I can assure you that my skin didn't like this at all.
It covered what I needed to cover well (hence the two stars) but I used it only once because a day after using it, I had a breakout which correlated with the areas I used the concealer for.
For those who are considering buying it, the yellow concealer is thin and its yellowness is quite deep in comparison to the thicker and very light yellow concealer from nyx concealer palette). I put tiny dots of it on the problem areas (scars) and dabbed it out - it spread out better than the nyx concealer from the palette, which tends to cling to the drier areas and, in my opinion, wears off more quickly. I would like to test out how this would work when my skin was even drier than the day I used it, but I don't want another breakout. ;(
Overall, sad it didn't work for me because it's affordable and it's not as open to germs, dust and all that jazz like the corrector palettes.

Lipstick -NYX - Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks

I purchased the Cherry Skies colour. I adore the Dita Von Teese pin up make up look. If you do too then this lipstick is for you. The colour can be adjusted depending on how much of it you apply and it has staying power! It's easy to apply and control and quite affordable. A light coat leaves you with a bright cherry look, but apply more and it deepens and darkens to a more dark plum, vampy tone. I prefer it to 'Vintage' which is a lot darker and gothy IMO. The only drawback is if you smudge it or touch it before its dried it can stain the area around your mouth and be a little hard to budge.

Palettes -NYX - Brights Ultimate Shadow Palette

on 10/4/2017 9:44:00 AM

I have been feeling the colorful eye bug and I’ve been looking for a rainbow palette. This one has reasonably good reviews for an inexpensive palette but it was a total flop for me sadly.
First, the formula. It’s what you expect for drugstore eyeshadow. Some shades blend really nicely. You can pack them on. I used the bright blue wet to build it up and it was quite pretty. But they are powdery. Overall, in application I was actually quite happy. But, the lasting power is TERRIBLE. You have to baby these guys like crazy. I use primer and usually that’s all I need. My eyes water and most shadows can not withstand a bad watery eye session. I went to the gym and did a high impact dance class. I’m sweaty and some eyeshadows last others crease a little. These shadows dissolved. I’m talking, bright blue sweat streaks down my face and literally no eyeshadow at all left on my lids. My liner and mascara were perfect and I could even feel my primer intact. It’s like these shadows didn’t adhere to my primer and just sat on top. I just can’t handle such high maintenance shadows. Just no. If you never have problems with oily lids, moisture in the air or from your face, these might work. Maybe a different primer (I use TFSI), but I was not willing to try.
Shades. Sooooo pretty! Especially that light lavender. It killed me to return this because the shades are soooo pretty! That slightly periwinkle bright blue is gorgeous!
Packaging. I really liked the packaging. Sleek, compact. Not super tough but for the price.
Price. So kind of expensive for drugstore, NYX has been getting more expensive. But with a coupon, I feel like if the lasting power had been good, it would have been worth it. And I love easily attainable makeup. You can even swatch it in Ulta.
Overall, I returned this and I plan to get the Viseart Editorial Matte palette and the Sigma creme de couture palette that is being re released. Those together are 5x the price of this, but I’m at a place where I want quality. I’m drooling over Sugarpill too. I really really wish this palette could have worked but I just can’t deal with the finicky lasting power. And I’m will to put up with Subculture so that’s saying something.


Liquid -NYX - Total Control

I've heard good things about this but never bought. Then my sister bought it and told me how amazing it is so of course I had to finally try it because I love a good lightweight foundation. The colour buff matches me so well, I don't think I've found a foundation colour more of a perfect match for me... the coverage doesn't get more than probably medium/full, not quite full, however I'm not a full coverage lover so the claim that it could reach full coverage wasn't a selling point for me. I thought that because it was so lightweight it would be great for my oily skin but within not even a couple hours my face gets extremely shiny and I feel like the coverage wears off :( super disappointed, had to return it.


Eye Primer -NYX - Glitter Primer

This product works and works well at that. I purchased this just to have on hand as I love glitter shadows and pigments but I don’t use them often. I came across a gorgeous glitter for the inner corner of my eye. So I decided to use this. I applied the tiniest drop to the inner corner of my eyes then applied the glitter. It adhered very well with no fallout and lasted till I took it off. It didn’t feel sticky or gross or anything. It just held my glitter shadow so well I couldn’t believe it. You only need the tiniest amount and it works! The tube will last me ages but I’m very pleased with this primer. It kept my shadow on till I washed it off and I got no fallout. Granted I only used a small amount but still it held up perfectly. Couldn’t be more stoked! Recommended.

Literally the worst liquid lipstick. It dried horribly the moment i was applying it, and was instantly uncomfortable. The color on my lips did not match the one in the bottle at all. After a month tho whole thing dried up inside the bottle so it was impossible to put on.

I have many of these colors from back in my “new to make up” period, although application is easy, I find it becomes quite dry on the lips, also, although it’s strange, I find the color in the tube compared to swatches or the way it wears, in very undependable, the colors are not quite the same on, which is how I came to own so many, which were thrown out after holding on to them for some time. I wouldn’t buy these again, if splurge on a more high end option.

I bought this in the shade Teddy. I tried it on and hated it, so I threw it out. It looked like cool toned caca on my lips. It was so bad. And then, on top of that, it made my lips feel stiff. It dried so fast, so there was some layering, and just felt so uncomfortable. I don't have this problem with any other liquid lipsticks. Not with the BH Cosmetics, Wet n Wild, or the Maybelline liquid lipsticks. Heck, even the NYX Liquid Suedes and Soft Matte Lip Creams are better than this. There are so many liquid lipsticks in the same price range that are good quality and worth the money, therefore I would not recommend this at all.
