Lipstick -NYX -Butter Lipstick in Licorice

The color is beautiful, and the application is smooth but something about this formula dries out my lips horribly. My lips could be smooth and moisturized in the morning, I put this on, and in less than a few hours my lips are flaking and peeling quite visibly.


Makeup Brushes -NYX -Pro Multi-Purpose Buffing Brush

foto

This is my first NYX brush, and I'm impressed. It's soft and dense, but the bristles still have a bit of give to it. Supposedly you can use it for liquid, creams, and powders, but I've only used it for buffing on liquid fdn, and it's fantastic! When I use a flat foundation brush, I always have to go back over it with a BB to blend out the brushstrokes left behind, but with this brush it buffs my fdn of flawlessly in seconds. I dab fdn over my face with fingers, then bounce it in a stippling motion, then gently buff in small circles. It's so effortless and takes me less than a minute (no f*cking joke) to ace my base. I'm talking like airbrushed perfection. It compares to higher end buffing fdn brushes. I will repurchase this when I need to replace it and highly recommend this brush.

Primer/ Corrector -NYX -Pore Filler

on 10/29/2017 4:48:00 PM

Does fill pores (I've used it on its own and over foundation) but wears off within a few hours and the pores become visible again. I'm 48 and find this looks horrible on fine lines - makes them look dryer and more visible. I can only use this on my nose and upper cheeks. I have yet to try this under foundation so will update if it works.

Concealers -NYX -Gotcha Covered Concealer

One of the best full coverage concealers I have come across in a squeeze tube. A little wet after application but just applied a powder over it and done. Looks nice without a cc or with.

Concealers -NYX -Gotcha Covered Concealer

I wanted to like this product after hearing that it was an inexpensive dupe for the Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer, but it has to be one of the worst concealers I've ever used. No matter how well I blend it out, and even if I bake for more than 10 minutes, it ALWAYS creases within a few hours. The concealer itself is too thick and greasy and it always ends up looking cakey when I apply it under my eyes. As for the positives, the packaging is hygienic and easy to use and the price is very reasonable, but sadly it doesn't compare to higher end concealers or even the Nyx HD Concealer Wand. Overall a disappointment of a product.


Blush -NYX -Bright Idea Illuminating Stick

I have this in Lavender Lust. Overall, I do like it. It is easy to swipe on and blendable. However, I would not recommend putting this over foundation or any kind of powder. It will remove the product and cake up.

I use this on top of my cheekbones, my nose, and as a browbone highlight if my skin is feeling dull. I don't wear foundation everyday, but I do wear translucent powder everyday. It works fine under powder.

If you buy a more light pinky shade, I would think you could use this under your foundation for a "glow from within".

Foundations -NYX -HD Studio Photogenic Foundation

It's lightweight. If you h already have good skin then you're eating money buying this. If you have blemishes expect it to cover then for approximately 6 hours and then wear off. I used Maple (nc50 similar shade). Is ok but like I said, gym? No way, beach? No way, rain? No way. It just doesn't last.


Liquid -NYX -Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation

foto

This is my current go to foundation for days when I wear make up or special occasions. Luckily, I have pretty good skin...very minimal discoloration or break outs. That being said, I don't think this would be a good foundation for those who are looking for full coverage. This is barely medium coverage IMO. Maybe because I only use a few drops on my face just to blend everything out perfectly. I'm sure if I added more drops or squeezed a bunch out, there would be more coverage. I will agree with some reviewers that the drop feature is a nice thought, but can sometimes be messy. Sometimes I miss my face when I try to place a few drops and this foundation has actually stained a couple pieces of clothing. There are many color options, but most retailers don't carry them all. It definitely worth a try if you have nice skin to begin with but I probably would not recommend for those who are looking for heavy/full coverage.

Lip Gloss -NYX -Intense Butter Gloss (All)

on 10/26/2017 10:10:00 PM

I typically stay away from glosses, but this is a pleasant surprise! I'm NC25 and I bought this in the shade Tres Leches and it is SO pretty. I looked up so many swatches before purchasing, and while it is a nude pink it definitely leans more pink in person with slight mauve undertones, but is relatively very natural looking. This gloss is SUPER pigmented (almost like applying liquid lipstick) so 99% of the time I have to take a paper towel and blot (yes, paper towel and not a tissue because this is SO sticky and will definitely cause little bits to stick). When I wear this I wear my hair up and out of my face because it's just a sticky mess when anything comes into contact with this gloss. I'm a sucker for the super saccharine vanilla scent. I probably wouldn't repurchase because I don't use it that frequently enough to go through multiple tubes, but for the price, rich pigment and color selection I'd say you don't have much to lose trying this out if you're in the market for a gloss!

Primer/ Corrector -NYX -Color Correcting Concealer Palette

foto

This has been a holy grail product in my makeup bag for years now! My main problems are dark circles and redness, and this baby right here...Magical! You can't even detect a single trace of redness or dark circles after using this. The only thing I don't like is when I use this to correct dark circles it creases a lot.I love my face with full coverage,this concealer is creamy and thick and gives full coverage without looking caked on your face, This is a great product that I think everyone should keep in their makeup bag!

Lipstick -NYX -Lip Lingerie

foto

These lipsticks are just okay. I have only tried one color, but that one color has kind of prevented me from buying other colors. I use this lipstick every here and there but the reason I don't like it is it's very drying and after like an hour of wear it starts cracking and flaking. When you first put it on it feels nice, it's creamy, dries pretty fast, and it looks overall looks really nice! It's just the drying effect intensifies with time and that's what makes me want to stay away! The packaging is really cute though, I guess If there were no other lipsticks around maybe I'd buy this again but it's not really a first choice in my opinion.

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

I tried this little gem in hopes that it would replace my expensive Naked Skin --- and it does!!! I really like it. So far it does not crease on me, it blends out well ( beauty blender application) no creasing into fine lines, and it stays put for hours. I was shocked. I'm 55 and I have crepey skin under my eyes but as long as I blended it out well - set it with a good powder - it doesn't budge. The applicator could use some help -- it doesn't give quite enough product - but I can totally overlook that for the price difference!!! It stays on me all day without fading and that is miraculous. The color range isn't the greatest but oh well.... it's like $20.00 cheaper than the one I was using!!! I think I can deal!!! Great product.

Lip Gloss -NYX -Cosmic Metals Lip Cream

foto

I have the shade Electromagnetic, which is a teal with blue glitter. It is a very bright shade by itself, but the glitter bumps it up another notch. It's definitely a statement colour!

The Cosmic Metal Lip Creams have a very particular formula that some will love and others will hate. The formula is a thick, slightly sticky gloss that you will feel on your lips. Despite being wet and obviously easy to smear/transfer, it doesn't feather out of the lip line and lasts a good amount of time so long as you don't eat a meal, wearing quite evenly. It is very pigmented and only needs one layer to reach full opacity. It isn't overly hydrating, but it isn't drying. It has no scent or taste and doesn't irritate my lips or the skin around them.

If you're a fan of glossy formulas and don't mind the extra care you have to take to keep looking good, these are really lovely lip creams with unusual colours and great pigmentation.

This sunk into tiny wrinkles I didn't even know I had, and you need to use a lot of this to even get a little above sheer coverage. Definitely wouldn't recommend this for dry skin -- it faded after a few hours yet also clung to dry patches. The texture is very watery, light, and thin, so it doesn't feel like you're wearing any foundation at all -- but the negatives outweigh the positives for me. The packaging also leaks sometimes.

This is a big matte pink-white lip pencil that did absolutely nothing to prolong any lip color used above it.
