I have the shade “ London” which is the perfect brown nude and there’s a matching lip liner too! Favourite liquid lipsticks as the formula is creamy , dries quickly and pigmented. Only let down is they aren’t long lasting

They discontinued my NYC liquid eyeliner so I decided to give this a go, and it did not disappoint. It has a thin, brush applicator, which I LOVE, perfect for winged liner. It's also a true opaque matte black!

I bought this at the local drug store on sale. I am always looking for a liner HG...this one is excellent and the price is great. The brush is very thin so the line goes on thin. This stays well for me. Getting it off takes more than water, I use Neutrogena make-up remover and it works great. The matte color I chose was black and it is a true matte. I would purchase again over more expensive liners any day! Is this my HG...I continue to try others...but it could be...and that is saying a lot for me! Happy shopping!!!


Powder -NYX Professional Makeup -Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation

I brought this in the shade Alabaster, it appeared to be good shade at first but a couple of hours later I felt it looked to caked all over the face. I used a brush to put it on as I didn't like the sponge it came with. I would only use it to set where I have put concealer. The powder is finely milled as other brands but for £10.50, I think it does the job well. Its handy to put in your handbag for a quick touchup during the day. I wouldn't use it as a foundation alone but good. to use as a setting powder and touchups.


Eye Primer -NYX Professional Makeup -Proof It Eyeshadow Primer

This is a really good primer but it's slightly finicky which is why I give it 4 stars instead of 5. This is a white cream primer with a doe foot applicator. First off, when you apply this, LET IT DRY COMPLETELY BEFORE PUTTING EYESHADOW ON TOP!! This is a primer that needs to be totally dry or else you will have a skippy smudgy mess. But, if it is totally dry, it's really long lasting and eyeshadow blends on to beautifully. The primer is not opaque so it doesn't cover veins and such but it does even out the skin ton a small amount. The doe foot gets kind of messy for me because I usually have residual mascara or eyeliner on that smudges into it. I get black spots smeared around my eye. So make sure you have your old makeup totally removed before using this. Otherwise it works great! I prefer the Wet n Wild primer so I don't think I'll repurchase. But it is a good primer.


Lipstick -NYX Professional Makeup -Macaron Lippies

WOW!

I own a few NYX lipsticks and they have been pretty much hit or miss but this line is AMAZING.
I bought Lavender and Rose.

When I first ordered these they came in the mail to my office and swatched them on my hands and I literally gasped out loud at work because I could not believe how gorgeous the swatches are. SO OPAQUE IN ONE SWIPE. They look more like Mac or Lime Crime (Great Pink Planet and D'lilah are very comparable to Lavender and Rose but twice the price of NYX). This stuff is almost like costume makeup since the colors are so different but I've always wanted to rock a crazy lipstick and I think there's a color for everyone here who wants to find their perfect bold shade.

Rose is a really awesome pale pink shade. It has a subtle purple undertone. It is VERY different. Even though I'm not a bright lipstick type of girl since I'm pale this one is the perfect undertone for me and I cannot wait to rock this.

Lavender is also amazing. It is very pale and cool toned and actually seems to border on blue rather than purple. I'm a bit more nervous to try this one than Rose since it's REALLY out there but I'm still excited to try something that's so different!!

Cannot recommend these more. 5/5 lippies!

Eye Primer -NYX Professional Makeup -Proof It Eyeshadow Primer

This is absolutely "the best" Eyeshadow Primer out there, bar none!

In one of my other recent primer reviews, I mentioned that the Tarte 360 Creaseless 12 Hour Eyeshadow Primer was my holy grail for a long time (but unfortunately it was discontinued), and that's when the NYX Proof It Eyeshadow Primer came into my life!!!

It's just the perfect formula...the NYX primer reminds me a lot of the Tarte product BUT as much as I loved that, the NYX primer is that much better. It goes on feeling drier than a lot of these other types of primers and it dries fast!

It says it's clear on the packaging but I find it to be more of an off white colour (which by the way) doesn't interfere or affect any type of eyeshadow colour that you might use. I tend to use an ivory/vanilla, matte shadow all over my lids and nothing else so I pretty much just keep it simple...I find that the NYX primer makes my lids look clean and matte..,..no creasing whatsoever! I've tested it out for long periods of time, such as 16+ hours and it's flawless...

I like the doe foot applicator but I do tend to put the product on one finger tip and then I use my other fingertip to tap them together and then I dab the product from both fingertips and I apply it to both lids at the same time and my eyelids always look even and set. I also tend to use any remainder that might be left on my fingertips and put it underneath just below my lash line...it helps my gel liner stay in place...you need very little...just a quick dab...

As I mentioned in my other review, I live in a smaller community so there isn't a lot of choice for products like this so I have to order it online and eBay always has a good deal...I can usually pick it up for about $7.00 so it's very affordable...

I hope that this primer doesn't get discontinued...that would really make me sad...

Buy and try it and I bet you'll be happy!

Blush -NYX Professional Makeup -HD Blush - Taupe

This is not a contour shade for any skintone. It's known as a 'contour for fair skintones' but it's straight up gray and looks muddy, ashy and dirty. Blends terribly. Wouldn't recommend to anyone.


Blush -NYX Professional Makeup -HD Blush - Taupe

This broke me out terribly. I have never had a single cosmetic item break me out the way that this did. I don't know what it is about it, other powders I've used have had similar ingredients... but holy, this destroyed my skin in a matter of days. If you are acne prone, my advice is to stay away from this. The positives about this product, however: colour is fantastic for fair skin contouring, lasting power is slightly above average, price is fair, packaging is cute... I really do wish I could use it.


Concealers -NYX Professional Makeup -HD Photogenic Concealer Wand (All Shades)

this product just didn't do enough for me. It really dried out my undereyes and made them look really dull. It creased too and it oxidized pretty badly. I could put up with that stuff if it made a really good spot concealer, but it didn't. It grabbed onto dry patches for me and the coverage just wasn't there...Maybe if you have really oily skin, but I just didn't like it. Also, the lid broke.


BB Cream -NYX Professional Makeup -BB Beauty Balm

this is the product I use on most days instead of a full-coverage foundation. It does a pretty good job of covering redness and patchiness in my skin, which is pretty much what I use it for. Personally I like to use a lower-coverage product all over and a high-coverage concealer where I need it, so this works well for me. I have combination skin and this doesn't give me any problems, although I definitely do need to use a powder on the oilier parts of my face. This doesn't really do much for covering my acne, but I don't really expect a BB cream to. I only need a little bit each time and it's lasted me a while. I'd repurchase.

Lips -NYX Professional Makeup -NYX Slip Tease Lip Oil

on 4/10/2018 10:44:00 AM

I have this in lowkey. I was definitely looking for the actual NYX lip oil and accidentally got this (I did eventually find that but it turns out I like the Slip Tease much better). This dries sown matte and slightly powdery but not crusty or uncomfortable at all. If you press your lips together lightly and don't rub, it won't move. If you do rub, it will move a little. Make sense?

Application is painless (for this shade at least). Make sure to wipe the wand off really, really well and apply in thin layers. The applicator hasn't given me any problems, and I haven't needed a liner. Wear is really good - it does transfer but you are left with a lot of color still. You'll need to fully reapply after a real meal though. I can feel it on my lips but it's not a hateful feeling. It's not moisturizing but I don't think it's drying out my already-dry lips. I suggest doing that thing where you suck on your finger to avoid getting lipstick on your teeth.

Ok, so the fun stuff - this does not settle in my lip lines and make my lips look wack like most liquid lipsticks. Miracle. Because of the opacity and texture, it makes a GREAT stain. Lightly apply, rub in, do that gradient thing if you want, perhaps apply gloss over it (wait for it to dry down first). It's inexpensive. There are 12 shades. Lowkey is almost like a browned-down nude-y coral, and it's great, super flattering and not even boring. I didn't see any others that I really wanted at the time, but now that I respect the formula I defffff have my eye on Breezy (bright orange-coral), Coy (light bright pink), Bang Bang (warm dark red) and Fire Dancer (cool dark red).

Loose Powders -NYX Professional Makeup -Mineral Finishing Powder

on 4/10/2018 1:05:00 AM

I bought this sort of impulsively because I love NYX and ulta was out of the makeup revolution baking powder I was after. It isn't my exact shade, it's a bit lighter than my skin but it isn't noticeable unless I use way too much. I have a feeling that flashback with this powder might be horrible, though I haven't tested that yet.

It sets my makeup well and it mattifies my skin just as well as my kat von d powder, so it does what I need it to do. It works fine as a baking powder or just as a loose powder, though I prefer translucent powder around my eyes. It doesn't do a lot to blur fine lines or minimize pores so there are definitely better powders for that around the same price ($9.50) if that's a concern for you.

Overall I'm not unhappy with it. It's cheap and why spend more money on a loose powder than you need to.

Lips -NYX Professional Makeup -Soft Matte Lip Cream (All)

Hello Ladies!

I have been a fan of matte lipsticks for years. Recently I moved to Canada, and I didn't want to dry out my lips with matte shades. I wanted to try out NYX's soft matte lip cream, to see if it works as the name says. I have a tan skin tone with a warm undertone. I purchased three colors- Vancouver, Cannes, and Copenhagen. They really complemented my skin color. I loved the packaging of the product as it's small and compact which makes it easy to carry. It doesn't really dry out my lips, and it doesn't stay much longer, maybe for 2-3 hours. I feel its fairly priced for its quantity. I would definitely repurchase the soft matte lip cream!


Brows -NYX Professional Makeup -Brow Mascara

I really like this brow mascara/gel. It tints my brows just the right amount, looks very natural. Keeps brows in place, lasts all day. I have the shade "brunette" and it is a great neutral brown for me. The size of the brush is okay, could be slightly smaller but it's not too big. Very easy to use. Will repurchase.
