Lip Gloss -NYX -Professional Makeup Butter Gloss

on 12/23/2017 2:19:00 AM


I really do like this product, despite taking two lippies off. I just kind of dislike the streakiness.

You can't swipe it on without a mirror, because the colour goes on streaky. You need to go in again with the applicator to smooth it out. I also feel like if you rub your lips together quite a bit, it makes it look a Tiny tiny bit streaky.

Don't get me wrong though, it's a great everyday gloss as there's no shimmer at all, but it's still really shiny. Of course, it goes away after eating and drinking, but that's what glosses do.

It has a really sweet scent to it...kind of like vanilla maybe? It doesn't bother me but maybe some might dislike it.

Would overall still recommend, and would repurchase. Madeleine is a great nude shade for NC35 - NC42 skin tones.

Lipstick -NYX -Soft Matte Lip Cream Cannes

on 12/22/2017 8:04:00 PM


The colour, I can't believe how pretty this colour is, a deep burnt rose (with red undertones??). I always swatch the colour and examine it under daylight to make sure it matches me. So it turns out that this colour really suits my lips, a MLBB but with a plus, the colour complements well my skin tone. The texture is not drying, but nor it is long lasting (don't expect it to be like liquid lipstick). I do prefer apply it over a layer of lip balm. It's around 8.99$CAD. I do find that towards the end of the bottle, the texture starts getting sticky. Rimmel Only One Matte High Flyer (610) is pretty similar in terms of colour to Cannes, if you are looking for the stick version...

Blush -NYX -HD Studio Photogenic Grinding Blush- English Rose

on 12/22/2017 5:50:00 AM


I bought the color "American Girl", perfect everyday peach shade for fair skin, I love the formula and packaging, but a bit pricey for a drugstore. Would buy again but I guess it discontinued maybe?(not sure)

Lipstick -NYX -Paris

on 12/21/2017 2:29:00 AM


I really like this bright lilac pink lipstick on my cool toned nw18 skin. The formula is very moisturizing.

I have two NYX lipsticks and my favoite way to wear Paris is mixed with Thalia it tones down Paris and turns it into the most beautiful sophisticated looking rose pink on my pigemted lips. This combo reminds me of a favoite discontinued Dior lipstick I use to have.

I also love using the NYX round lipsticks as toppers on my nude tone liquid lipsticks by KVD and Stila. If I can find more colors I like in the glossy NYX lipstick formula I will buy more. I have to say these are some of the better quality lipsticks I have tried for under $15 .The other brands I have liked were the Estée Lauder pure color envy sculpting lipsticks and the rouge perfect by Shiseido. The NYX lipsticks are not as pigemted as the above mentioned lipsticks but are very nice and give above average moisturizing coverage. I like the two lipsticks that I have tried by NYX over many other high end brands.

Liquid -NYX -Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation

on 12/20/2017 7:46:00 PM


Stuck to all the dry patches on my skin :(

I tried blending it with fingers, sponge and brush but I found it looked cakey anyway I tried it. I love NYX products but this was not for me

Loose Powders -NYX -HD Studio Finishing Powder

on 12/20/2017 2:21:00 PM


I want to love this product. When applied the powder to my foundation as the last step, it really helps smooth out my skin. However, during application with a big dome brush, the powder falls off everywhere: my table, my shirt, the floor,... Also, the powder evaporate and i inhale it (because I applied it on to my face) and that is not pleasant at all.

Eye Shadow -NYX -Nude Matte Shadow (all)

on 12/19/2017 9:12:00 PM


I have the shade skinny dip a dark plum shade. I bought this to deepen a few shades in my ABH modern renaissance paletttes. That is a lovely palette but lacks a deep plum shade. This worked amazingly well for me.

This is not as pigmented as the modern renaissance colors but just adding another application builds it up nicely. I also had no kickback of powder unlike the colors in my modern renaissance palette.

This is the only color I have tried but now i’m Interested in trying a few more.

Lipstick -NYX -Professional Makeup Matte Lipstick (All Shades)

on 12/19/2017 4:31:00 PM


I like this formula. I was really surprised by it because I haven't been a huge fan of other NYX lip products. This is probably the most comfortable matte lipstick I've used. It goes on easy and I generally only need one layer for opaque color. There is no need for a lip liner. It feels light on the lips and isn't drying on me. I purchased the Merlot color which is a beautiful pink-red. It stayed on through a few drinks, but not 100% through eating. I had to reapply but it didn't take much and layered well. Overall, I am happy with this matte lipstick. My only complaint is that packaging is flimsy and I feel like I'm going to break or smash the actual lipstick bullet.

Eye Primer -NYX -Proof It Eyeshadow Primer

on 12/19/2017 4:06:00 PM


This holds my eyeshadow on throughout the day without an issue. I don't love it, but I don't hate it. I feel like it goes on a little thick and can make my eyeshadow stick too much like it doesn't blend well. I try to use a thin layer, but it can be difficult with how goopy and wet this stuff is. I appreciate the doe-foot applicator so I don't have primer all over my fingers. The is one major reason I tried this stuff plus the good reviews it had. Overall, I am okay with this primer and will finish the tube, but probably won't be repurchasing because I've used better primers.

Blush -NYX -Rouge Cream Blush - Tea Rose

on 12/19/2017 1:00:00 PM


I don't really have anything bad to say about this blush. It's pigmented, it lasts all day, it's easy to blend, it doesn't move my foundation when I try to blend it and it doesn't leave any texture on my skin. It's like it melts into my foundation. The only thing to keep in my is that you have to be careful because it dries down pretty quickly.

Highlighters -NYX -Professional Makeup Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter

on 12/19/2017 1:18:00 AM


This gives the skin a wet look and I quite like it. My only issue is it's hard to blend.

If you tap it in, it appears glittery, splotchy, and bad in general. Buffed in, it looks like a wet glow that is oh so beautiful. However, wiping/buffing it in results in it mixing with and lifting the foundation underneath, but not too much that it bothers me.

It's not so great for a full glam instagram look due to its tendency to lift products underneath. But for everyday makeup, it's gorgeous.

Pressed Powders -NYX -HD Finishing Powder Translucent

on 12/18/2017 4:21:00 PM


This review is for the banana version. I've tried the highly rated Ben Nye & was underwhelmed. This little baby is such a good find. It sets my makeup beautifully and somehow makes my skin look flawless. And wow does it control my oil! Finally a powder that really really makes my mu last all day - it's even better than my HG Laura Mercier that I've used for years. This is my new HG and it's dirt cheap to boot - what a find.

Lipstick -NYX -Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks


I bought this on a whim in 'Vintage' because I love the colour and the matt cream didn't work for me. The colour is lovely, it has a nice finish but the lasting power (for me) is just not there. Like a lot of other people have said, it takes ages to dry and even then it transfers like crazy.
The inner part of my lips (or 'the lip butthole') is always a huge problem for me and this has no staying power on that area. Even if that's not a big problem for you though, it just comes off with food and drink so easily. I was patching up all day when I wore it. On the plus side though, it does patch well without getting cakey or gritty.

Kind to dry lips, pigmented, but not for me.

Lip Liners -NYX -Slim Lip Pencil - Peekaboo Neutral 860

on 12/17/2017 8:11:00 AM


My HG lipliner. Always out of stock. The perfect nude pink, not too light, not too dark, not too brown...defines my rather thin lips nicely... The color goes well with my favorite lipsticks and it lasts all day. Me: NC15-NC20 with pigmented lips.

Lips -NYX -Professional Makeup Soft Matte Lip Cream - Stockholm

on 12/17/2017 8:02:00 AM


This is a close dupe for MAC's 'Kinda Sexy' (which was always my signature day to day lippie), Kinda Sexy is a wee bit pinker and a touch brighter, while Stockholm leans warmer...but I can barely tell the difference color-wise once on my lips. I own both and I don't feel like I need to repurchase the latter when this one is a fraction of the price. I have no problems with the formula, it's a creamy matte, doesn't dry my lips (barely even feel it, it's so lightweight), needs to be reapplied after a few hours (particularly after eating), but I'm okay with that. On my lips and against my complexion, the color is a warm peachy nude that leans abit rosy. I'm NC15-NC20 with warm undertones, brown hair + eyes, this makes for a perfect MLBB shade. I pair stockholm with Nyx lipliner in 'peekaboo neutral', love this combo for day to day.
