Overall would recommend if you're looking for a drop foundation or natural looking foundation on a budget. Also the shade range is good for yellow/warm tones. I used this in shade 08 and 11 (when I'm not tan/when I'm tan). I have very yellow undertones & this matches me great (some other shades I've used for reference: Hourglass sand/warm ivory mixed, MAC NC 35 when paler, diorskin nude in linen, Fenty 290, urban decay 4.0/5.0)

I have minor redness when my skin is irritated & have mild acne. Also very oily ie shiny in an hour or two usually. This combined with concealer on blemishes/acne scarring is enough coverage for me. Does not oxidize & blends really nicely. Very watery consistency as expected from drop foundation but coverage is truly buildable & is blendable.

Being oily I have to blot or touch up regardless so no this does not stay matte all day but I also know that's totally expected for me. I set this using LM loose translucent or more recently the Fenty blotting powder & it subsides any shininess for at least 3/4 hours or so before I need to blot ( which is not bad considering I naturally get oily after like 45 minutes it seems :/ )

For medium/full coverage I use 2 large drops (running down large) on each cheek & two drops on forehead. Apply with damp beauty blender and the finish is very natural. Not matte, not satin or dewy, literally just looks like your skin.

That being said is this the best foundation I've used? No. The coverage could be better and the finish although natural, could be more elegant - like a soft matte finish if you know what I mean. Price wise and in terms of shade range this is great. But if you have the money to spend I would definitely make other recommendations (for ex. I've tried the Dior drop foundation and I think its much better but they do not have a good shade range for me)

Lips -NYX - NYX Slip Tease Lip Oil

on 9/16/2017 11:08:00 PM

To start this. I am a balm addict. I do not like the feeling of something on my lips (ahem Rimmel Apocalips) or my lips to feel dry.

I got this today and it's completely not what I thought it'd be. I thought this might be more like the Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid (velvety). It is not. These are still liquid lipsticks. I'm not sure why NYX named them what they did. It seems super misleading.

With that being said. I applied one around 3pm and wore it till about 6pm. It lasted the entire time even thought it did transfer onto my water bottle. It didn't crumble, it didn't really fade or if it did it was so even I couldn't tell.

With the whole balm addict inside me, this wasn't the most comfortable lip product I've worn. I could feel it on and it was a little bit drying. But I think I can live through it for how nice it looks for hours on end.

This has to be one of the least sticky but okay feeling liquid lipsticks I've tried. Others either are drying and drive me so crazy I take them off or they crack & crumble off. They also feel like I have liquid latex on my lips or wear unevenly which looks horrendous (patchy or the inner lip has nothing). This doesn't do those horrible things.

It's matte, not super drying and feels okay (not 100% comfortable). Just for those who are curious.

Lipstick -NYX - Lingerie in Embellishment

Love the color, dislike the formula.

This just didn't work for me. It ended up being too drying. But I'm a lip balm addict.

So if you want a liquid lipsticks and don't care about it being drying. This is for you.

Being porcelain skinned with cool undertones (I glow blue in moonlight) I was of course drawn to this lip color. I absolutely love it. It's going to be my go-to lippie for the fall/winter months. Some previous reviewers have said this color leans more towards brown and/or berry, but I don't see berry tones. As for the brown tones, I guess there is what I would call a brick undertone beneath the dark red. It looks like the color of almost dried blood, one which makes my inner goth-girl very pleased. As for the formula, it is not matte and the texture is very creamy, which I prefer. That being said, it transfers onto everything my lips touch, but it doesn't bleed if I use a lip liner (which I already use every time I wear a dark lip). Despite the transferring, it lasts several hours if I'm not eating anything and I can reapply without first removing the color like I have to with certain matte lippies that cake up. All in all I recommend this product.

It was good while it lasted. Unfortunately, it wasn't that long... maybe a month? Like many others have mentioned, the contents of the tube solidified into an unusable mass.

This is my favorite brow product. I have extremely sparse/light brows, and so I basically have to paint on my entire brow every morning. This stays in place all day, it doesn't fade, and the product itself lasts forever. I have been using mine every day for months and I still have quite a lot left -- though I do notice it's a little harder to squeeze out now than in the beginning, maybe because the product is getting dryer?

I like that it's in a squeeze tube. I squeeze a tiny bit onto the tip and dab it with my angled eyeliner brush, then use that on my brows. This way I don't have to squeeze any product out onto a flat surface and waste some. It's also a good price.

Eyeliner -NYX - Retractable Eye Liner (All)

on 9/14/2017 12:49:00 PM

The colour payoff, and the color choices are not bad. Packaging is also really handy, I'm a big fan of retractable auto eyeliners because I'm really lazy about constantly sharpening pencil eyeliners. I've also had a close encounter of almost poking my eyeball with a sharp side of a pencil liner (so never again).

My makeup style is natural, therefore I used this (the brown one) to tight line my eyes, and also draw line at the ends, to elongate it.

This eyeliner sucks, not only did it give me panda eyes, it disappeared as well.

I'm trying to make use of the money so I'm trying to use all of it-- but I don't know, panda eyes? Mm-- no.


Brows -NYX - Micro Brow Pencil

This is my favorite eyebrow pencil! I have it in the shade 'Espresso', which matches nicely my dark brown, cool-toned eyebrows. It's very thin, so you can draw hair-like strokes easily. The consistency is a bit waxy, so you have to use a bit more pressure with it, but it's a long lasting product. I think you get a pretty good amount of product, if you use it more sparingly, only to fill in spots, it will last you a few months (I'm only on my second one, but my first one lasted me three months of using much more than I do now). It's a bit expensive for a drugstore product, but it's definitely worth the price, it's very hard to find good eyebrow pencils at the drugstore.


Lipstick -NYX - Lip Lingerie

This is an ok liquid lipstick. Not the best, but definitely not the worst either. I have the shades 'Corset' and 'Cashmere Silk', which are pretty similar, 'Corset' being a cool toned taupey nude and 'Cashmere Silk' a bit more warm toned brownish nude. They apply smoothly and easly, the consistency being quite liquidy. They are slightly sticky when dry, but nothing too bad. I don't know if they are too drying on the lips, because I always wear lip balm underneath, but they kinda have a tendency to emphasize the lines on the lips. They last a good amount of time, when I eat it only comes a bit off on the middle of the lips. Overall it's a pretty good liquid lipstick, the shade range is nice, I think everyone can find a nude that would suit them.

I love this stuff! I bought Bitten as a bronzer and I actually just use it as a blush lol. I normally like bright pigmented blush but this is perfect for fall/winter. I don't really care for the clasp though, it drives me nuts.I lose 5 minutes of my life every week to that clasp. All in all, it's an amazing product!

This product is near perfect if you consider Price-Value. It's not actually perfect, but for that cost - it doesn't need to be.

Positives:
The formula. I adore it. Creamy, moussey, highly pigmented, very matte. It feels so good on the lips! I really can't say enough good things about it.
Lasting power. It does survive eating, drinking, and for quite a few hours too. It's not the longest wearing lipstick you can find, but you don't have to carry it around to reapply. I put it on in the morning for work, and take it off after it wears off about 7 to 10 hours later.
The colors. So unique and beautiful. They are quite similar, so it's not a huge range, but they're really muted and wearable.
The packaging. It's sleek and cute, very nice for this price.

Negatives:
The applicator. It's too long and oddly shaped and I honestly have hard time applying but you get used to it, I guess.
Butthole lip. Not a problem for the lighter shades, but for Honeymoon or Teddy, it's not great. The lipstick wears off on the inner part (the waterline).

Overall, I will be repurchasing endlessly, I can already tell.

I love the formula of this lipstick. It's soft and buttery and once it's on it's so lightweight u don't even notice it's there. The color is also very nice.

The NYX Lip Lingerie range is one of my favourite liquid lipstick formulas, but there a few things keeping me from rating it a 5. I have the shades Push Up, Bedtime Flirt, Embellishment, Corset and Satin Ribbon and I have definitely noticed some inconsistencies in the formula across the different shades. I find that while some are very pigmented on application, others are quite washed out and need a good amount of work and layering to get an even colour, which can tend to cause cakeyness. I found that there were also inconsistencies in the smell - some had a sweet candy smell while some had a very strong chemical scent - which naturally was quite off-putting.

Aside from this though, for such a low price this formula is amazing. It lasts all day long and is easy to retouch on the go if need be. The shade range is incredible and certainly has something for everyone. I've never seen such a variety of nude shades, especially in liquid lipsticks, in the drugstore. Though, one final drawback is that after a while these can be super drying, which is quite uncomfortable but can also leave a noticeable flaky texture on the lips. That being said, I still continue to wear and repurchase shades from this range, as they perform just as well as a lot of more expensive brands.
