Below average mascara. Almost immediately I noticed a fall out onto my cheekbones which continued through out the day.I didn't notice any volumizing effect, clumps lashes together and doesn't hold curl at all


Primer/ Corrector -NYX Professional Makeup -Shine Killer

on 5/18/2018 7:48:00 PM

I've used two makeup primers in my life -- e.l.f.'s Hydrating Primer and this, and both have been terrible. To echo pretty much every other review, this primer is the exact opposite of shine-killing. I put this on one morning after blotting and moisturizing and by the end of the day, my makeup had noticeably separated and was easily transferring when I touched my face. After a couple more days, it was pretty clear I was breaking out, too, after several months of relatively clear skin. I'm thinking silicone-based primers just don't jive with my skin, but even so, I wouldn't recommend this primer to anyone.


Lip Gloss -NYX Professional Makeup -Butter Gloss in Eclair

The butter lip glosses by NYX are affordable, fairly long lasting and have a light, sweet scent. As a previous reviewer stated, this is Barbie pink. Does not dry out my lips. I would try other colors of this lip gloss.

I bough Embellishment, French Maid, and Confident. I think these look different on me than the swatches I saw online. Embellishment was looking pretty rosey-purple on a lot of swatches i saw, but it’s rose-brown on me (which is fine, and more true to the tube color). My lips are pretty pigmented (red/brown) which probably influences the color. I dab a little bit of product on my bottom and top lip and rub it in with my finger. This way I get the color without the product buildup. You can use the applicator to apply/swipe this on and it will be a lot more pigmented.

This dried down ok. It’s been on for six hours now- I’ve had a greasy breakfast and it’s still going strong. I like this product range because the colors are really muted. Pretty happy with this.

Looked okay at first, but crumbled off my lashes halfway through the day. It looked like I had black pepper all over my cheeks.


Primer/ Corrector -NYX Professional Makeup -Dewy Finish Setting Spray

on 5/15/2018 8:27:00 AM

pros:
- you need only like 3 sprays
- dewy effect is noticeable for like 5 hours
- increases the longevity of your makeup
-you can spray it on your brush and then dip it into your highlighter and it’s going to be BLINDING, or use it instead of a primer or on op of a primer so it has multiple uses.
- it won’t make your makeup flakey or anything, it just melts into the skin and gives you healthy glow

cons:
- the smell (it’s not too bad and others may like it but i don’t like it so much)


it may look like you pay $10 for “only” 50ml package but it lasts months, even if you’re using it daily.

Lip Gloss -NYX Professional Makeup -Professional Makeup Strictly Vinyl Lip Gloss

on 5/15/2018 8:18:00 AM

these glosses are very pigmented, i got this in shade “bad girl” and it’s really nice color. the product lasts pretty long on the lips considering it’s a gloss, it doesn’t feel sticky in any uncomfortable way. the packaging looks nice and decent, even though it’s made from plastic, it feels durable. the only bad thing (at least for me) is, when you compare a price point vs how much of the product you get, there is 3.3ml and other glosses usually have like 7ml or something.


Brows -NYX Professional Makeup -Micro Brow Pencil

I’ve bought this pencil in shade “ash brown” - some of the reviews for this shade said that the undertone is warm or not ashy at all,but for me it works brilliant - exactly what i wanted. i’ve been looking for a good eyebrow pencil and none works like this one for me. i’ve been always using brow pomades (benefit kabrow is all time fav!) and it’s not that easy to create something soft and natural looking with these pomades and this pencil is exactly what i was looking for. it lasts all day, it’s not too creamy and it’s really easy to work with. there is 0,9g of product so i think that if you’re going to use this a bit heavy-handed,you’ll need to repurchase really soon.

Concealers -NYX Professional Makeup -Professional Makeup Full Coverage Concealer Jar

on 5/15/2018 5:10:00 AM

I own this concealer in the shades Beige and Medium. These Concealers can be used anywhere on the face, even on the eyelids. They come in a small pot, but because the concealer is highly concentrated, a little truly does go a long way. So, one small jar really does last a super long time. These Concealers do provide me with medium-to-full coverage. Now, I set them well with powder, so I don't get any major creasing with them at all. A really good oil control powder will allow for these concealers to stay in place all day. Because not all powders are alike, some powders used to set these concealers with, aren't going to be the most compatible, and yes, you may get creasing, caking, and smearing. These concealers are not 100% crease free. So, please don't go by such claims. Neither do I feel that the concealer is lightweight. Because, to me, it goes on just like MAC's StudioFinish concealer, which goes on creamy and stays that way, until you set it real good with a mattifying type of powder.

The only slight con to these concealers is that the way that the color looks in the pot, is not 100% true to how it looks on the face. Which is why, in stores or even online, you have to play this type of guessing game, when it comes to picking out shades, whether it's to use for highlighting, contouring, bronzing, or even just matching your natural skin tone.

I don't apply these concealers with my finger, because this concealer doesn't dry down matte all by itself, it has a very creamy texture, and therefore applying it with my fingers, would greatly affect its performance. The heat from your fingers will start to break down the product a lot more than without, which is why, I highly recommend using an actual concealer brush with this product.

These concealers only retail for $5, and for how long one jar lasts and the coverage that it gives, I feel that it is definitely worth getting for sure. When it comes to concealers, whether high end or inexpensive ones, they all need to be set real well with a powder that has really great mat tidying properties to it, or else, whether you have any fine lines or wrinkles, the concealer will start to break down in some form or fashion. That's just the nature of most concealers, unless a concealer is able to dry down to a totally matte finish and stay that way for several hours on end after application, then you can just apply it and forget about it. But in most cases, you need to set your concealer very well with powder, and the powder that you use should be a very good oil absorbing/mattifying one at that.


Lips -NYX Professional Makeup -Soft Matte Lip Cream (All)

It is not as long-lasting as other formulas, however, it applies on so smoothly and does not crease or dry lips. Colors are divine, vibrant. Totally worth it for the price.

I have a couple of shades of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cremes. I generally like these best for bolder lips because they are more comfortable than a liquid lip, but stay put better than a regular lipstick. They are a little drying on my lips and I like using a lip balm under.

Primer/ Corrector -NYX Professional Makeup -Dewy Finish Setting Spray

Sets your makeup fine, sprayer is fine, everything about it is good except that it isn't what it says it is. It's not dewy. At all. It's the same as the matte one. Not sure what else to say except that I'm pretty sure this is repackaged and sold as something different. Meh.

Lipstick -NYX Professional Makeup -Pin-up Pout in Sophisticated

on 5/11/2018 9:52:00 PM

Sophisticated is a medium nude with an abricot undertone. It stays fairly long on the lips, it glides nicely on the lips. Can be paired with a lip gloss in the color nude abricot. Goes well with smokey eyes. Love it!


Lips -NYX Professional Makeup -Lip Lingerie Glitter

on 5/11/2018 11:45:00 AM

I have several different shades of the NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks but when NYX Cosmetics came out with new Shimmer and Glitter versions I decided I would compare these to my original matte and gloss finishes.

I have the color Maison which is a beautiful tan/nude shade. The matte version of these lasts the longest for wear time, with shimmer coming in second, gloss in third, and glitter in fourth. My favorite finish of all of these ended up being the shimmer version which has a nice finish. On days when my lips are feeling a little dry I will wear the gloss color since this gives my lips a little bit of hydration. The glitter version is an overall pass for me but was nice to have for this comparison. I must say wearing a lippie that has a vanilla scent to it is a nice change from some of the floral and fruity scent lipsticks I've been trying lately! My review and swatches and comparisons can be seen here:
