Lip Liners -NYX Professional Makeup -Suede Matte Lip Liner (all shades)

I have this in the color Copenhagen, which is a richly pigmented dark burgundy wine shade. This lip pencil applied smoothly, did not feather and was fairly long lasting. I really liked that the colors matched the NYX soft matte lip creams.

Loose Powders -NYX Professional Makeup -HD Studio Finishing Powder

on 5/30/2018 9:29:00 AM

This is a FINISHING powder. Not a setting powder. Those saying not to bake with this are clueless. Finishing powders are not meant to bake with and set foundation. Finishing powders are meant to FINISHING your makeup. A light dusting at the very end. Use a SETTING powder to set with. Educate yourselves before leaving cap reviews.
When used properly there is no flashback. Nice silky texture.

Eyeliner -NYX Professional Makeup -Epic Ink Liner

My all-time favorite is Kat Von D's Ink liner, but the NYX Epic Ink Liner is an acceptable, more affordable option with a similar felt tip. It doesn't stay on my oily lids quite as much, so if I expect to have a long day I'll go for the Kat Von D. I've yet to find anything that comes close.


Lip Gloss -NYX Professional Makeup -Butter Gloss

foto

Great, comfortable gloss. My one gripe is its a cream base, so it seeps into your lip lines and looks bad unless you continuously press your lips together. I think it's comparable to the lorac alter ego lip glosses, just more sheer. A really pretty lip product. No sparkle, and not as tacky as the Buxom glosses. These are light years better. These make your lips look so plump. I own fortune cookie, creme brulee, tiramisu, and angle food cake. I'm planning on buying Praline and Madeleine. These are all nice nudes.

Eye Primer -NYX Professional Makeup -Eyeshadow Base in Pearl

on 5/28/2018 8:18:00 PM

foto

This is one of my lease favorite NYX products. I thought a white base would help my shadows pop a little more, and this does help for about 3 hours. After that my eye shadow fades even worse than if I had no base at all. Plus it creases after 2 hours!!!! I understand this is a base not a primer but it shouldn't cause my shadows to crease after 2 hours. On top of that, this is not pearly, it is glitter. It makes shimmery shadows very very glittery and this base has fallout. What kind of BASE has fallout? I have the entire pot left and will end up just using it to highlight my inner corners or because it just makes all the shadows too glittery and causes creasing. Would never repurchase this in a pearl finish

Primer/ Corrector -NYX Professional Makeup -Hydra Touch Oil Primer

foto

After using this primer for a couple of months, I can definitely say that it is a winner for me. It has a light scent, but it doesn't irritate my skin. The oil glides on smoothly, even over sunscreen and other skincare products, and after about a minute it is ready for foundation to go on top. The packaging is nice, and the dropper is pretty precise, BUT it does leak a little if it is tipped onto its side. I found this out when I took it on vacation with me, as a small amount of product got out into the bottom of my travel case. Stored upright it is no problem, though. My skin is pretty dry, and of course putting foundation and powder products on can leech moisture from the skin, so this acts as an effective barrier at preventing that. It also feels very lightweight compared to other primers as the oil melds with the skin. I've tried this with several different foundations (Becca, MUFE HD, WnW Photo Focus, NYX Total Control, Revlon Colorstay) and it doesn't really negatively affect the wear time of any of them. For very matte foundations, it keeps them from looking dry or cakey, but it doesn't make them appear greasy. While the improvement in wear time overall is pretty small, it is magic for preventing my foundation from breaking down. I've had this problem for a very long time with pretty much every foundation I have used, and I am thrilled that I finally found a product that helps to prevent this. Finally, if I want to boost my glow, I mix in one drop of illuminating liquid (Cover FX or Revolution) and three drops of the primer oil, and this combo makes my skin look very luminous but not too shiny or reflective. As a primer, this product definitely does everything I want it to and then some. If you have oily skin or want your foundation to wear longer this may not be for you, but if you want a skin-loving primer that will make your foundation look and feel better then definitely try this.

Lipstick -NYX Professional Makeup -Simply Vamp Lip Cream (All)

I've got this in shade Bewitching and I absolutely love it! I hardly use lippie, but when I do, it's always this. The color is gorgeous!!

Sure, I'd need to touch up after eating/drinking, but it never smudges and it's super easy to apply.

Lipstick -NYX Professional Makeup -Lip Lingerie

These are a bit of a mixed bag. I really do like the shade range here, as a pale lady it's hard to find decent nude shades so it's nice to find these decently-priced liquid lipsticks with a handful of super pale shades.
I am around an NW10 in MAC shades, and have neutral to cool undertones and dark hair.
I have Satin Ribbon, which is a cooler beige-tone nude, and Silk Indulgent, a very pale peachy pink. The applicator is a little strange, it is a fuzzy doe-foot type but is very straight and firm. It goes on without too much streakiness or patchiness and dries down quite quickly. When set, it has a slight tacky and resin-y feel and is very drying on the lips - you have to have well-moisturised lips beforehand as this will highlight every crack and flake on them. It is fairly resistant against eating and drinking although some of the lipstick near the centre will come off. The rest of it is actually quite awkward to remove - you need a make-up remover to dissolve most of it off, if you try to physically remove with with hands, teeth etc you will most likely scrape and hurt yourself trying to get it off.

So I'm not really enamoured with the formula. But, it's hard to find decent nude shades as a pale girl without having to drop £20 on some high-end product, so this gets points for the shade range. I'd prefer if they weren't so drying otherwise I would wear them much more often.

Lipstick -NYX Professional Makeup -Professional Makeup Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks

I have this is Kitten Heels (a pinup red) and it wears well and lasts nicely, but I also have it in Oh, Put It On (deep purple-black) and it both feathers and wears off the top lip really quickly even if don't eat or drink. The formula isn't super-drying.


Primer/ Corrector -NYX Professional Makeup -Pore Filler

on 5/26/2018 9:43:00 AM

This is one of the very few products that I haven't questioned buying over and over and over again. I don't actually wear makeup on a daily basis (most days I just wear moisturizer, sunscreen, and this) and this product is about 90% of the reason why I feel comfortable with that. It smooths out my skin and gives it a matte finish that lasts all day, and it doesn't make my skin go red like a lot of other products do. (It also doesn't break me out, but I'm not usually prone to acne and it normally takes a lot to break me out, so definitely take that with a grain of salt). I should probably note that I'm 22 so I don't have many lines to fill on my skin, but I really do think this does a great job of filling pores.

Of course, for a drugstore product, I definitely feel like this one is on the expensive side of things (with taxes it's almost $20 CAN) and I find myself running out of it more often than I would like (though I do literally use it every day, so maybe I should be surprised?) but, unless a cheaper and better version of this comes along, I can't imagine not repurchasing it.

Also, I feel like I should warn you that this product looks really, really gross by itself- I have a feeling it does such a good job at filling pores because it lowkey almost looks like something that you would pop out of a pimple and it doesn't really look like something you would want to put on your face, and it almost feels oily when you first put it on but, once you get past all of that, I've found that it really does work brilliantly.

EDIT: I also just realized that I didn't actually mention how this works as a primer when I'm wearing makeup SO- When I'm actually using this as a primer, it's always worked great for me. I'll do my usual moisturizer, sunscreen, primer routine, and then I'll give it all a few moments to set in before I put finishing powder on and then start with my foundation etc. etc. etc. and I find that whatever I'm putting on goes on incredibly smoothly, and manages to last all day before I need to touch it up or (at the very least) do some oil blotting. Really, I don't have any complaints about this product and how it's worked on my skin!

Eyeliner -NYX Professional Makeup -Faux Whites Eye Brightener

Wonderful as eye brighteners and subtle inner corner highlight effect! These come in a variety of pastel colours - cream, mint, baby blue, pale lilac and pale pink. The lilac one (white smoke) contrasts my eye colour and makes it look quite striking.
Staying power is decent and they are quite cheap. I own 5 separate colours, I like them that much!

Brows -NYX Professional Makeup -eyebrow marker

on 5/25/2018 2:32:00 PM

I have this in the color Deep, which looks like a chocolate brown but applies to my fair skin a golden brown color. This is like using a water based marker to sketch in eyebrow hairs. I like to use this to outline my sparse and thinning brows. The color lasts all day for me. I do not use this as a stand alone product. I usually fill in the bare spots of my brows with Milani Brow Pomade in taupe, then outline with the NYX brow marker and sketch in the tail ends of my brow. I finish off the look with a light sweep of the e.l.f shape & stay brow pencil wax in clear. Right now, this is the most natural look I can give my fading eyebrows. For best results, I like to store this brow marker with the tip facing down to keep it from drying out. And I always wipe the tip with a tissue when I am done using it so it does not clog up.


Eyeliner -NYX Professional Makeup -Epic Ink Liner

This eyeliner was suggested to be as an acceptable dupe for Kat von D's Tattoo liner, and I believe it is. It's not as long lasting as Tattoo liner, but it has good pigment, is widely available, and only costs 1/3 of Kat von D's.

I still prefer the Tattoo liner , but I would repurchase the NYX version again if I run out (Kat von D is very hard to find where I live).

Amazing staying power, !! Lovely selection of colours. Pricey for a lip liner that is also very difficult to sharpen, so you don't get much use out of it. The actual lip liner itself however is very very good.

Liquid -NYX Professional Makeup -Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation

on 5/24/2018 4:30:00 AM

I was not a fan of this foundation.
First off I could not find a good shade match.
I tried a couple different shades but in the end, the formula did not work for me and there were no more shades that would work for my skin tone so I gave up.
It was easy to use and build up but I did not like how it looked on the skin and it also started to slip around a bit by midday.
Overall, I did not care for the product.

On my medium/tan neutral skin tone
Beige- too light
classic tan- a bit too light and a little too pink
Golden-swatches too dark but blends out pretty well and prob the best match out of the shades avail. so far.
Anything above golden was too dark
