Mascara -NYX - The Skinny Mascara

Well, let me just tell you!!! I have the most sensitive eyes, lashes and skin around my eyes that I cannot put ANYTHING near my eyes because I will be punished...and punished SEVERELY if I even THINK about dressing up my lashes with mascara! I bought this mascara today at Ulta after getting my hair done. (Happy birthday to me). I put this mascara on and ...WOW! Just WOW! No pain...no discomfort...no uglies...no dryness....no tears....no red skin...no red eyes!!!! They are long and beautiful!!!!!! No $hit!!!! Have not washed it off yet but will edit my review if I find anything negative.......don't think I will though. If this dries out too quickly, I WILL BE PUTTING SALT DROPS IN THE MASCARA TO MAKE IT LAST!!!!! That is how happy I am with this.

Pressed Powders -NYX - Finishing Powder Banana

on 9/26/2017 10:05:00 PM

I've been using the hourglass diffused light for a few years under my eyes. Now, I've almost run out of it, so I figured I should try something new (thanks to hourglasses high price tag, I'm looking at you $56 CAD for a undereye powder). I've used it several times, and it's safe to say I'm in love. Works exactly the same for $12 CAD. Craziness.

Honestly, I love this! It's a little drying in my nostril area, but every foundation is. Really runs out quickly though, which is insane for a $16 CAD foundation. Would I buy it again, for sure. Would I recommend it? Yes. But it's not a drugstore price for the amount!!!!

Lace Detail- the perfect warm nude. It's beige with a mix of pink and golden peachy undertones. It applies smoothly and isn't drying. I love wearing it with NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brûlée on top.

Eyeliner -NYX - Retractable Eye Liner (All)

foto

Great eyeliner at a drugstore price
This works great on the waterline and also with tight-lining so there's no wood poking me. It's hard for me to find creamy liners like this, since gel is the biggest trend today, and as someone who wears puppy eyes instead of wings this liner is perfect for a natural look. It builds beautifully, and has great color payoff. Lasts all day, and doesn't transfer too much (I don't wear primer and there was only a tiny bit of transfer). Very happy to have found this!

Concealers -NYX - Gotcha Covered Concealer

This product is so hydrating and dewy and it's so highlighting and brightens up the eye area. I was so happy with this product until half an hour into wearing it, it was seriously creasing and got worse throughout the day. It didn't matter how much powder or primer you applied it just wouldn't stop creasing. So disappointed

I use this regularly, it’s affordable and easy to pickup at the drugstore, the smell isn’t too harsh for me, although their is a scent, dries quickly and keeps me matte, this is my day to day setting spray

Primer/ Corrector -NYX - Studio Perfect Photo-loving Primer

I’ve used both the green and purple pigments and find for the price, it is definitely worth the money. My makeup last all day, skin looks mostly smooth (pores around my cheeks and nose are larger, and usually needs a combined effort of setting powder and spray to blur). It does not crease in the fine lines on my eyes, I buy this regularly at Target out of convenience


Brows -NYX - Micro Brow Pencil

I used to be a 'powder-in-the-eyebrows' kind of gal, until I saw a photo of how unnatural it looked in the sparser parts of my brow (I blame over plucking in my younger years). I decided to try the Micro Brow Pencil and FELL IN LOVE. I have the shade Espresso and it is PERFECT for my neutral, pale-ish skin and dark hair. I hate the 'Instagram brow' look so only use this where I need it and use a brow gel on top. It literally looks like I have perfectly natural brows. The formula is waxy which allows you to build a very precise shape. Could not praise the NYX Micro Brow more! AND it's very budget-friendly! A total winner!

Liquid -NYX - Total Control

There were only 10 shades offered at my Ulta when I bought this, so I had no idea there are actually 24 shades to choose from. It is insanely frustrating that the places that sell NYX nearest to me: Ulta, Target, Walgreens, and Walmart, don't carry the full NYX range in their stores. On the websites of these retailers, you can see that ALL of the medium-dark and dark shades say "Online only"!! I would love to hear L'Oreal's explanation for this. I know for sure it's not that they're worrying about selling too much stuff. I figured because Total Control is a liquid, it would be easy to color correct by mixing with lotion or cream foundation, so I purchased Beige. For me, mixing it with another foundation doesn't work, because this little foundation packs quite a punch! Total Control has the consistency of water, but the pigments are remarkably concentrated. In fact, this formulation puts other "drop" foundations to shame. With the correct shade, the coverage is outstanding...it can be sheared out with a wet sponge (not dry or even damp), applied with fingers, painted on with a brush...it all works. If you find a shade match, this will melt into your skin and make your skin look impeccable. Beige sits on my skin and it oxidizes terribly. I've even mixed this 50/50 with MustaeV Melting Cream Foundation in White, and it was still too orange! Total Coverage has a bit of an oily-looking finish, but this might be made obvious because it doesn't match my skin.The heavy finish emphasizes, rather than disguises, imperfections. I think dry skin might love it though. I'm guessing that Medium Olive would have been a much better shade match for me, and if I ever do see Medium Olive, I will try it. It's unlikely I will repurchase this, though, because this foundation seems to be a blend of every silicone used in cosmetics. Sadly, after trying this three times, I had a cystic breakout. In addition to the breakout being a reason not to repurchase, I don't like the dropper because it's messy and wasteful. If I add drops of this on the back on my hand, it runs down my whole arm and drips onto my cabinet. If I put it on a mixing palette, it spreads out before I can pick up enough with a brush or a sponge, and a lot gets wasted. I've tried dropping this directly onto my Beautyblender and brushes, but it soaks right into the sponge, super-fast, and it drips off the brushes. This is likely my pecular problem, or some lack of coordination or patience on my part, but if you saw my sink after I use this stuff, you wouldn't like dropper liquids either.


Primer/ Corrector -NYX - Angel Veil

A vintage font adds to the goofiness of the packaging, but if you can pass on that aspect, this isn't a bad option for a primer.

I normally use either a moisturizer or the Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel, which work well, but the latter feels too dry and the former doesn't always seem to keep makeup in place.

Angel Veil helps with me with foundations that are "dry" like Armani Maestro Fusion.
While it isn't a miracle if you have dry skin, it helps and feels more alive than the silicone primer.

I use it in the winter especially.

The price is right and I wear it over a sunblock, too.


Eyes -NYX - Wonder Pencil

I use this to brighten the inner corners of my eyes. It's pretty amazing, cheap and lasts forever. I'm pretty sure I've got mine in 2012, and it is still going. It's one of those products that you tend to forget about, but when you don't have it you will severely miss it. I highly recommend this in the light shade for brightening the eyes. Naturally if you're looking to use this as a concealer then choose the shade that works with your skintone best.

Lipstick -NYX - Matte Lipstick in Perfect Red

on 9/20/2017 3:42:00 AM

Its a good dupe for Mac Ruby Woo,WNW Stoplight Red, Sephora 'Always Red 01'

As the name suggests its THE puuuurfect red. Its those matte lip colors the Emirates flight stewardess swear by.

Pros
Cheap
nyx is cruelty free & committed to PETA... yay! :)
nice color
for a matte lipstick its kinda moisturizing which is nice unlike a liquid lipstick
its not a liquid lipstick and certainly wont perform like one, so dont expect the non transfer resistant effect

Cons
Feathers
transfers
dries out
feels grainy ...cos its matte
bleeds in hot climates ... fixable with liner tho'
this is a 'hard to find shade' for some reason


packaging needs some major revamping exercise..whats with the ingredients printed on the tube?! looks trashy

Recommend
Buy! PETA will be happy!

Concealers -NYX - Gotcha Covered Concealer

Now I have this product, I couldn't live without it.
If you have normal-dry skin under your eyes, this is infused with coconut oil & creates a lovely natural dewiness under the eyes.
A little of this concealer goes an extremely long way (I'm not even kidding, to cover under both eyes the amount I use is probably the size of a pine nut, maybe even less than that.)
Being super dewy, if your skin is oily, it probably isn't for you.
It covers my dark circles amazingly, and doesn't crease at all.
I have a real problem with every other concealer creasing on me, and 'baking' just makes it worse.
I think this would also work perfectly on older skin as well, and for only £6 you really can't go wrong in trying it out!
Apparently a dupe for the It Cosmetics Bye-Bye Under Eye if you like/wanted to try that one but can't justify the price xx

*Update*
I have actually started using this on blemishes now and I have to say, if you can blend it out enough to get rid of some of the oiliness, it works really nicely at lightly covering very red blemishes. It almost acts like skin, you can hardly see it’s on. I’m not sure if it’s the coconut oil or not, but it does almost seem like it’s also actually helped reduce some of the redness in the long run.

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

I used this product before,maybe a year ago. I decided to use another concealer instead after that. But this summer (around july) I decided to repurchase it. Since july/august of this year my face began breaking out severely. I did not assume it to be the concealer since i had used it before. I thought it may be my diet, but nothing had changed. But, unbeknownst to me, nyx reformulated the concealer, by adding coconut oil. my skin in very sensitive to oily things. If you have sensitive, acne prone, or hormonal skin, I would avoid this concealer. I also realised that I only broke out when i wore makeup, so i should have known. I wish I had found out about this earlier, so i did not have to suffer through 2 months of bad acne, without knowing the cause. I only discovered this tonight and will update on my skin if it improves. Hope this helps someone.
