Lipstick -NYX -Powder Puff Lippie Powder Lip Cream

The NYX Professional Makeup Powder Puff Lippie is a lipstick that sets to a nice powder-like finish which you almost can't feel it on. The Powder Lip Cream sets very quick so you will want to apply this and blend very fast. The applicator tip can be clumsy, especially if your lips are more on the thin side. I found the color on the outside of the tube to be very different than the actual color so if you can you will definitely want to swatch this first. My more detailed review and swatches are here:

This product is useless. It does nothing for your lashes. A better option would be the Voluminous lash primer by L'oreal. I would not buy this product again or recommend it.

Love the NYX butter glosses! These are the only lip glosses I will use! Both my mom and I each own a handful of them and continuously steal them from each other. Always have one in my purse and in the car!

Eye Shadow -NYX -Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencil - Yogurt

Used this since highschool and couldnt find another inner corner highlight better than this. I have nylon by mac which is way too metallic/stark white shiney/ pale yellow. I am cool light skintone with pink undertone. This is the only shimmery eyeshadow product i can put into my lower waterline without looking freaky and a bit off. When i use other shimmey shades i tend to look more tired and swollen almost. This stays put since it is a cream base and it lasts a long time on the inner third of my lower lash line. This looks very natural with a hint of pink which i love and prefer. Its not too over the top shiney which can look odd for my face and age lol def will repurchase. It was around 5 dollars, cant beat the price and performance.

Liquid -NYX -Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation

its got rly yellow undertones but i saw the shade range expand to other undertones which is good yknow. im in between beige and golden, but i never rly can get my shade (even going to sephora to get fenty i couldnt get an exact shade, but its cool cause i mix a lot). rlyyyyy runny. but i like the idea of buildable coverage. for $14 its not bad, just wish it was somewhat cheaper, but compared to $20+ foundations ill take drugstore in a heartbeat.
i cover my acne w a green corrector before using this and blend in my foundation and my hyper pigmentation is goneeeee. and my skin hasn’t reacted badly to this. i have oily/combo skin with occasional dry patches and this foundation stays on throughout my 8 hour work day. my oily skin does show through after about 2-4 hours but it never melts or separates. a little blotting paper or translucent powder can fix it.

Lip Gloss -NYX -Professional Makeup Butter Gloss

These are the "adult" lipsmackers with more pigmentation, cute dessert names, a huge variety and a yummy smell. I find them less moisturizing than lipsmackers but it could be because these have a bit more slip, and easily come off when eating, drinking, kissing, etc. Since that is sort of the limitation of lip balm, it doesn't bother me.

If you want an affordable lip balm with a ton of variety of color, definitely look this way. The cute packaging and names are just an added bonus! But dry lips may want a bit more moisture.

Been using it for a while for my undereyes but it cakes liked crazzzy just liked any cream concealer if i try to use them under my eyes and the pigment is also kinda poor. It also tends to disappeared quick.....i It might be okay for minor color correcting but if you have heavy duty darkness or marks then it won't do.


Highlighters -NYX -Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator - Sunbeam

At first swatch it was pretty but when applied to the face it's a glitter bomb. The glitter particles are chunky and cheap-looking and very very far from producing a realistic-looking glow. I could only see this applied very very sparingly on the cheekbones or the inner corner of the eyes for a night party look. Not the absolute worst product out there but you can find so many others that are better than this. The primer from the Born To Glow line is a million times nicer, go for that one.


Primer/ Corrector -NYX -Born to Glow Illuminating Primer

on 1/6/2018 8:11:00 AM

For the record this review is for the PRIMER in the narrow white tube not the liquid illuminator which is -mistakenly- pictured here.

The primer is really excellent. It took me a while to get the hang of it but once I did it garnered a beautiful result. It's a pearl-toned silicone-y cream product with very very fine shimmer. I figured I didn't need a lot of product since it's quite slippery and can feel a tad heavy if you don't use a light hand. My favorite way to apply is by starting with a light layer to prime and then mixing a drop of this with my foundation/bb cream. It gives that fresh, juicy skin kind of glow that is subtle and can be worn day and night. Definitely not glittery or harsh and thankfully doesn't accentuate any texture. I don't think it offers much in the way of foundation longevity, but for me illuminating primers never do anyway so I didn't have that expectation. Tube will probably last a long time, so overall good value for your money.

To sum it up, if you're into a super glowy, metallic type of sheen this one isn't for you but if you're looking for a healthy, youthful low-key radiance for all occasions it's a winner.

I always seem to be intrigued by NYX highlighters, but this was a glitter bomb. I will not purchase.


Contour -NYX -Powder Blush - Taupe

Not on contour on me. The HD version also does’t work as contour on me. On my olive/ochre/sallow skin, I get a lot of pink and red undertones so this is more of a cool toned blush on me. I really love how well it blends and how little I need to get a natural flush since on my skintone it can sometimes be a bit too easy to overdo blush.

Contour -NYX -Powder Blush - Taupe

This is the only product that can actually give me a 'shadow' contour rather than an orange streak and will suit fair neutral-cool skin tones very well (for what its worth im NC15). I find it very pigmented so I have to be very light handed otherwise it can easily look like a huge splotch of dirt but it blends beautifully from the very small dab I use

Lips -NYX -Soft Matte Lip Cream (All)

foto

I have this in the shade Istanbul and its legitimately the prettiest, most natural looking pink on me. I could wear this every single day it is so flattering. Texture wise I'd say it's closer to a whip like their lid/lip lingeries but it isn't drying and won't create that butthole look, and I find the pigment can be a little more intense for me so I only dab a little bit in the middle of my lips and use a Qtip to spread it out


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

When I first tried it I don't know why I did not rate it at all but recently I ran out of my fit me and gave it a try again, now I'm not sure if my under eye area was too dry back then etc but I love it now! I don't have bad eye bags so I use it to highlight and even out the area, it's smooth, great price and the best way to apply it is beauty blender or sponge. Even though it's HD I didn't notice much flashback. For the price It's worth it but like any face makeup you need to prep your skin well by using a eye cream or ointment if the concealer is creasing or set it with the correct powder.


Lip Treatments -NYX -Butter Balm

Bought these in the shades Biscotti and Macaron and ended up throwing both away.

I liked the slight, sweet flavor both shades had but that’s about where my endorsement ends. The formula looks smooth in the tube and applies smoothly but ends up feeling gummy once on. It makes lips feel kind of gross - sticky, crumbly - after just a few minutes and that feeling stays until wiping it off thoroughly. Not only that but the formula seems to have the opposite effect of its purpose, drying instead of moisturizing. My lips ended up more chapped after using this balm.

Both shades were very sheer and added little tint. The tube colors are nothing like the balm colors, which is a little odd. To end on a positive note, at least neither one is frosty or shimmery.

$3.99 each with standard twist up cylinder packaging.
