Eye Shadow -NYX - Nude Matte Shadow - Bare My Soul

Fantastic brow shade for me. I always struggled to find a brow shade for my dark brows and light olive complexion. Most brow products pulled very warm on me - almost orangey or reddish. This shadow has grey undertones but when blended into the brows it looks seamless. I suggest you give it a try if you have the same issues with brow products.

PSA: If you guys like this shade, pick it up NOW. I heard it's being discontinued :(!!

Brows -NYX - Micro Brow Pencil

Must be on my 5th one of these by now, I absolutely love it. I'm very fussy when it comes to eyebrows and I can honestly say this does everything I want in a brow product. You get a decent amount of product for a good price (£8), very easy to use, looks super natural whilst still being pigmented, has a nice buttery texture (I've found some brow pencil/crayons to be quite waxy and drag across the skin, but I've never had that issue with this), and it even has a spoolie at one end so you can easily diffuse the colour if you've been a bit heavy-handed. There is also a good selection of colours - all of which are very natural i.e. warm browns aren't too red. Just a shame my local Boots' stock always runs very low, very quickly on these :( I guess that just shows how good it is.

Black cherry tart is a dark grape lipgloss. It shines and stays on long on the lips. It glides smoothly on the lips and is more tick then the other nyx butter gloss. It goes well on a darker plum lipstick. Love it!


Lips -NYX - Soft Matte Lip Cream (All)

I like this for everyday wear since it is smooth and silky on my lips. Only problem is it doesn't last very long unless I put a ton of lip liner. I have three and plan on purchasing again. Very good for the price.


Lips -NYX - Epic Ink Lip Dye

so, i think what i need to accept about this product is that it's not a normal liquid lipstick. it's very watery and is a stain (i got a red color and it was a bit jarring to apply. looked looked blood). my first application with this was awful. i tried again, and the trick is to have a consistent amount of product on the applicator. the hardest part is to get the edge to look good and have enough product to coat it evenly. you also will likely need more than one coat. if it won't dry down all the way or you want to speed the process, use translucent powder on your finger to set it. once it's dry, it stays on pretty well


Loose Powders -NYX - Color Correcting Powder - Banana

on 9/8/2017 1:57:00 PM

I bought the yellow shade. It is a decent powder and does the job to color correct the foundation and brighten your face. It isn't quite as yellow as the Ben Nye Banana Powder so it is more subtle.

However, the packaging sucks. It does not include a puff to stop the powder from pouring out everywhere and while you would think the price is decent, it really isn't. For 0.21oz it costs CAD$12 and normally loose powders contains 1 full ounce of product. So really this powder would be CAD$60 if you do the math.

Would not repurchase again. I feel like NYX tries to position itself as drugstore brand but really in sneaky ways charging people prices of very high end product and I feel like the quality isn't justified. Won't recommend and won't repurchase.


Brows -NYX - Control Freak Brow Gel

This is the first brow gel I have ever used, but I love it! It's really good quality and does exactly what I want it to do. I like the look of feathery brows and I can easily achieve it with this product. It doesn't leave any residue at all on my brows and it also doesn't make them hard like hairspray would. It also lasts perfectly all day long. The price is pretty good, even though a bit too high for just a brow gel, but I will definitely repurchase.


Concealers -NYX - HD Photogenic Concealer Wand Green

I LOVE this concealer! I've done color correction on others back when I worked as a makeup artist. I had never used it on myself, because I had perfect skin up til just this year. For reference I'm 32, very fair and cool, with normal/dry skin, slightly textured around my cheeks and almost no wrinkles. In the last few years the skin across my cheeks and nose has taken on a pink color, despite rigorous sunscreen use. I came to the conclusion that I might benefit from a color corrector. I tried a few green primers with no luck, be it from the drugstore or the department store. They just weren't a strong enough green to handle my slightly pink areas. After looking around at a few different green concealers, I chose this one, as I'm never disappointed with NYX. They are the king of drugstore makeup. This stuff is a strong mint green color, so I was fairly certain it would tackle my skin woe. And does it ever! I apply this before I use my foundation using the doe foot wand to dot a tiny bit across my pink areas. I blend very well using a small concealer brush, but I use my fingers in a patting motion to thin it out and really melt it into my skin. The texture of this stuff is fantastic, thick but not so much I can't blend it out; spreads very easy. My foundation glides right over it and completely covers the green, and my foundation is a sheer to medium formula. This gives me doll skin, which I thought I'd never achieve in my life ever again. If you're searching for a product that actually covers any redness, look no further. You have found it. I will never be without this again!

Eyeliner -NYX - Glam Liner Aqua Luxe

I bought the shade "Glam Azure"- shimmery blue. I love bold colors and everything blue so it's right up my alley. The pigmentation is great, applicator convenient, it takes me less than a minute to apply the product. If I don't want to fuss with makeup (or I'm running late) I apply matte shade to deepen the crease and on my lower lash line to define it, then this liner, mascara and eye makeup is done. On my eyes it lasts very well. Don't know about other colors- but I plan to purchase one or two more.


Highlighters -NYX - Dose of Dew Face Gloss

on 9/7/2017 3:02:00 AM

So I recently got into wearing a bit more editorial "fresh" makeup (the whole milk and glossier aesthetic you know which one I'm talking about) and I really wanted to try the glossy, almost wet looking highlight. This one seemed to be the perfect one for my pale skin so I picked it up and ive since used it almost every single day.
The stick is easy to use, just swipe it onto your skin and tap with your finger or a sponge to blend. I personally have quite good skin so on days when I'm in a hurry i just wear this and my brows and it helps me look somewhat put together.
The color is a pinky champange colour but the it doesnt really show up on my skin until it catches the light and when it does oh boy is it magical. Some people complained about it moving the foundation applied underneath but I personally havent experienced that yet.
All in all I would totally recommend this, especially to fair skinned people who like a natural but also wet and glossy highlight!
