Brows -NYX - Eyebrow Gel

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!

Lipstick -NYX - Lip Lingerie

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.

I love the color selection and the coverage is pretty good I'm just not a huge fan of the formula overall.


Lipstick -NYX - Lip Lingerie

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.


Eye Primer -NYX - HD High Definition Eyeshadow Base

Its a decent primer....goes on nicely, but takes a long time to "dry". Once dry it lasts on my lids without it becoming too oily (I do not have very oily lids). Overall, even for the price, I wont buy it again....I prefer UD PP.


Pressed Powders -NYX - HD Finishing Powder Translucent

on 9/13/2017 11:20:00 AM

foto

Ugh, I'm still on the quest to find a good powder that keeps me matte for touch ups. I have only tried this as a touch up powder (blot powder) for 2 days - and my main disappointment is how no one has really mentioned that this stuff leaves your face WHITE. I barely powder some of this on with my ELF powder brush - and my face ends up looking paler, white, and chalky. I would not call this translucent, unless your skin tone is pure white like white out.

It does keep me more matte than my Fit me matte and poreless and my ELF $2 powder, but I wish it wouldn't leave me looking like such a GHOST!

Lips -NYX - Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi

on 9/13/2017 2:41:00 AM

I was lucky to find a tube in sephora. Its always sold out!! Its one of those nude best sellers. I also like the fancy destination name. Abu Dhabi goes well even with simple eye makeup .Its a beige nude ,grey undertone shade on me(NC37). Its nice for day makeup and office wear. Smells nice like cup cake frosting.

The mousse like texture is cool. My only gripe, is the staying power. Close to none! Nope. Anyways, i do like the SMLC collection shades 'cos its affordable. Will get more.

The nude liquid lipstick trend is no where ending yet, so I`d say buy.
If its too light for you then i suggest mixing with darker shades. I normally outline with nyx Dubai ,fill in Abu Dhabi and bham.... looks so contoured. Gorg!

Nb. if you collect nudes, then just buy too!


Brows -NYX - Tame & Frame brow pomade - Brunette

on 9/12/2017 9:29:00 PM

This is my new go-to for my brows!

I've always been more of a brow powder or pencil girl. I recently realized that powder tends to fade quickly on me and pencil doesn't look as natural on me so I decided I wanted to try a pomade. I purchased it in the shade "Black" even though it is more of a brown-black, which is awesome for us girls with dark brown hair and brows. It is really easy to apply and blend out with my angled brow brush and while my brows are getting more defined, it still looks pretty natural. I brush it through after with ELF brow gel and it lasts all day. I'd say its just as good as the higher-end option but less than half the price. I also love the sturdy packaging and secure twist-off lid.

Brows -NYX - Tame & Frame brow pomade - Brunette

on 9/12/2017 6:32:00 PM

First pomade I've tried, not a big fan because it takes me 25 minutes to use this and eyeshadows on my patchy brows and I feel like it shouldn't take that long, that's like half my makeup routine right there. Going to try dipbrow soon instead. I have dark brown eyebrows and espresso is a pretty good color, maybe slightly reddish toned when it isn't applied heavily, but I like a heavy, kinda boxy brow look. It doesn't usually sit where I want on the patchy areas by my tails, so then it's lighter and doesn't match the rest and I have to go in with a dark taupe-y shadow color. Also, I've maybe gotten a month or so of actual daily usage out of it and I'm hitting pretty close to the pan I think, just from using product in the middle. That's what really bugs me. I feel like it's not cost effective because of that. It needs more pigment or something to change about the texture to make it stick down and easy to just glide across the entire brow with a small amount of product, rather than dip in like 10+ times per brow. Maybe for lighter brows it would be a little easier, but not for dark brows. I also can't easily see doing a more "natural" look than what I do using this. It just would not cooperate that well. Also, I use kind of a thick, pretty stiff angled brush just from Jessup and sometimes it picks up a lot of product, other times I get virtually none by comparison. I feel like with a brush that thick I should be really packing on the pigment.


Lip Gloss -NYX - Butter Gloss

on 9/12/2017 1:07:00 PM

These are totally worth the hype and I'm not a big fan of glosses. I have 3 shades (Angel Food Cake, Raspberry Tart, and Cherry Pie). The colors are super pretty, the texture is really pleasant, application is really seamless whether you're using them on their own or over lipstick/lipliner, they layer really nicely over different colors to add depth, they're long-lasting (though not food or drink-proof, but it'll stay on your mouth until something takes it off) and the smell is delicious (angel food cake smells like cake, raspberry tart smells like grape/raspberry). I think the texture plus the staying power are probably what make me love them despite not being one to use gloss a lot, they feel luxurious when you put them on and knowing that I can put it on and it'll still be there hours later is awesome. Would definitely repurchase and will probably buy in more shades. Recommend 100%!!

I love putting a dark fuchsia shade of lipstick or lipliner all over my lips and then putting raspberry tart on top. Raspberry tart looks bright purple in the tube but it's way more wearable than it seems.
