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

This foundation is expensive for the drugstore!

I do, however, love how light this foundation feels and is easily buildable. Natural Beige hits my undertones well, and Beige is a tad light for my Fenty 290, Maybelline MP Fit Me 228, MAC C40 skin, and it reverse oxidizes on me! YES IT TURNS LIGHTER. It's so weird. I usually get oxidation with foundation but this gets lighter on me. I wanted this to work for me so bad and I am not willing to take the time to mix other shades to make this fit.

I'm on the fence. It's not terrible but it's not great. I use porcelain on the center of my face and vanilla on the sides. You really can't tell the diff once on bc they both oxidize into a pale yellowish peachy color. If I were Hispanic or Asian it would prob be great but on super white Caucasian skin it looks a bit off...not hugely but enuff so it looks odd compared to a white chest and neck. I'm also on the fence about the whole powder finish. During humid summer months I think I'd like this over dewy skincare. I think dewy foundation over dewy skincare is a recipe for disaster esp if u don't set w powder, so this would maybe be a nice alternative. But, I think it makes my skin look flat even with contour and highlight. I'll try w diff setting sprays and see if it looks less flat, but it's kinda mask-like. I was wearing BB with oil set with a matte spray and my skin looked better. This looks kinda flat, and emphasizes any texture. I think the price is nuts for a drugstore foundation, but being u can mix multiple shades to get a custom blend, I can't really b too upset. There's a matching primer but I think unless ur super super oily it's gonna just make u more dry looking. I didn't get their brush cuz I have one for Bare Minerals serum and it works fine. Application is fast and easy, but my skin is on great shape w no discoloration or breakouts right now. I think if u have any issues it'll make it look more textured. This isn't a bad foundation if you have decent skin and have time to contour, but it's a bit sheer for problem skin, and dry skin types will prob want to avoid bc it's pretty matte.

Can be worn as a stain, giving the effect of a creamy lipstick or can be worn as an opaque looking product. It is a little bit sticky and you should wear lip pencil underneath if your lips are chapped, since it will settle in fine lines otherwise.

Nope. Not worth it. Once I tried It Cosmetics tiny thin brush mascara, I had to try more of them. This one was fine for about two weeks. Then it dried up. Now, I often like mascara that's dried and thickened a bit; it's less wet. In this case dry mascara is unusable mascara and it's a waste.

I even tried to revive it with a few drops of saline, but nothing doing.

Previously, I was using Essence Make Me Brow. I liked it, but it did not blow me away. This NYX one blew me away. I really like the wand. It's really good at sweeping up hairs and separating them to coat them with product. It's very waxy and builds good volume. More volume than Essence. I like to pair it with a clear brow gel. The tinted brow gel clings to the clear one and I'm able to get more thickness. One thing I'm not pleased with is the color. I got the shade Espresso. It's the right depth, but not the right tone. For reference, I use ABH brow products in Ash Brown and those are a perfect match. The shade Espresso is a dark neutral brown. Drugstore pencils tend to be a bit gray, so it evens out. On its on or paired with my ABH products, the color looks a bit off. Not a huge deal. I notice it, but others probably do not. I may try a shade up and see if I like the tone of that better. I do appreciate that NYX has a good color range of about 6 shades of varying depth and tone. Many brands only have 2 or 3 shades. I noticed in reviews people are complaining that it's not pigmented enough. I have not had that issue and find the pigment to be fine. I think that this is my new go-to tinted brow gel.

Unfortunately, this product did not work for me and I had to return it. It was too greasy under my eyes. I tried to pair it with the concealer I used for brightening and it looked okay (slightly heavy) the first few hours. After that my under eye makeup broke apart and the darkness I was trying to cover up came through strong!

I could see people with dry skin loving this, but for combo skin leaning towards oily - pass.

So pretty and fun! It has no scent and is so pigmented. I chose Booming- a bubblegum pink with chromatic peach/yellow shimmer. It lasts long and it looks good alone or as a topper.

I like these liquid shadows. The consistency is smooth and almost gel like. It blends easily and dries down quickly. I bought Rose Pearl and Night Glow. The pigmentation is pretty close to what you see in the tube even after it has dried. Night Glow appears a bit more gray than brown on me, though. My one complaint is that they don't last as long as my pressed powder shadows. By the end of the workday, I can hardly see the color. I will keep experimenting with eye primer so hopefully, I can find a way.

Primer/ Corrector -NYX Professional Makeup -Dewy Finish Setting Spray

This has replaced Urban Decay All Nighter as my choice setting spray. I love this stuff. I don’t have problems with makeup melting off my face and it provides a nice dewy finish on top of my makeup. It doesn’t spray too much product onto the face and I feel like I am good to go after just one or two sprays.

I have this product in #4, “Soft Spoken,” which I would describe as a deep, yet soft, burnt rose. It’s a sophisticated, but not stodgy color that works well for both day and night.

As with most NYX products, you get a lot of bang for your buck here. The tube is large (but still fits in a makeup bag or small purse) and the product, while in said tube, doesn’t dry out. Once applied, that may be a slightly different story, if you have very dry lips like I do. While i don’t find it as drying as many lipsticks, it’s still not moisturizing enough to look and feel good on me for more than a few hours. Then it starts to become patchy and flake, causing me to reach for my balm and wipe the remnants away.

I do applaud the wet formula for not being too goopy. It dries semi-matte, with medium pigmentation. Props also go to the sturdy, angled applicator, which picks up the perfect amount of product and is uncannily easy to use.

Bottom line, if you don’t have true troubles keeping your lips moisturized, this is an affordable option worth trying.

I have this in Tres Leches. I was initially going to pick up a replacement for my beloved Butter Gloss in Tiramisu but I saw these and saw that Tres Leches looked very similar I decided to give it a try. It looks amazing! Very pigmented and quite comfortable on the lips, provided you don't overapply.

Good lip balm. Smells a little weird. I use it as a night balm and it works very well.

One of the best matte lip products I've tried. Very comfortable on the lips. Doesn't give you that wrinkly "butt hole" lip look if you know what I mean, lol. Sorry for that visual. The product melts into lips and sets into a beautiful wash of colour. I have Stockholm.

I really like this for my under eye area and on my lids as a primer. Great coverage and applies smoothly (I use an E.L.F concealer brush to apply). It lasts well as a primer but needs to be reapplied under my eyes after 4-5 hours.

This looks and feels great immediately after application however doesn't wear well at all. It will find dry patches you didnt know you had and settle into pores and fine lines. It transfers easily and if you get a little water on your face it doesn't hold up at all. It is a very liquidy formula so has a dropper style bottle. It can be very messy but if it worked for me otherwise, I wouldn;t have a problem. I have tried mixing with strobe cream and my tinted sunscreen but still the patchiness of the forumla comes through. Color match was perfect and this did not trigger or aggravate eczema, but sadly it is going in the trash.
