Eyeliner -NYX - Epic Ink Liner

on 9/5/2017 9:53:00 PM

A couple years ago I brought a brush tip pen liner while on vacation in another country and I loved it because the application was awesome, and it lasted all day. I didn’t have a problem with it drying up from picking up any eyeshadow on my lids and it lasted me about a year.

I’m so glad that I found this liner, (thanks to youtube), because the only other brush tip pen I knew of was Kat Von D Tattoo Liner but I didn't want to pay $20. The NYX one is only $7.99. For me brush tips make it very easy to get a sharp wing and also get into the inner corner of my eye without smudging or getting on the lower part of my inner eye. It is very easy to create a very thin sharp line and a larger bold line. I have no problems with fading during the day. I will definitely repurchase.

Eyeliner -NYX - Slide On Pencil - Brown Perfection

on 9/5/2017 12:23:00 PM

This is so easy to use, especially on my slightly crepey eyelids. I struggle with eyeliner but this one is almost foolproof. I love it in the waterline too. This one is a win!

Lip Gloss -NYX - Whipped Lip & Cheek Souffle

I usually like NYX lip products, but this one is not for me. I received Cocoa Bean in my Ipsy bag and the shade was too brown for my taste. The color looked very flat on my lips. I prefer pinkish or redddish browns. The formula felt nice on the lips, but it did not last at all. Did not try it as a cheek contour or blush because the color would not work on my skin tone.

Brows -NYX - NYX PROOF IT! WATERPROOF EYE SHADOW PRIMER

foto

Love this product! I have insanely oily skin and my eye lids are very oily as well! I bought this because I ran out of my Urban Decay primer potion. I wanted a less expensive alternative. I did not expect to love it. I use it everyday for work and for going out. No matter how heavy my eyeshadow is it stays put. I used this, went out dancing and for drinks. I fell asleep with my makeup on (whoops) woke up and it was in place it did not fade very much. I was very surprised. I would def recommend!

Lips -NYX - Soft Matte Lip Cream (All)

foto

I love these! They are a long lasting lipstick that is almost like a stain, but a bit creamier.

They can be a bit patchy if you don't exfoliate your lips first, but I do with some homemade sugar scrub and they go on like butter. They are also a bit drying at the 10 hour mark, but I kind of expected this since they are a drugstore brand. I keep some rose oil handy in my purse and slather on top and it gives me a nice sheen that mixes with whatever color I have on underneath.

I have Stockholm, Zurich, and Cannes. For reference I'm about an NC20 and pretty yellow, and I also have a lot of pigment in my lips that leans blue. So it's a challenge for me to find "natural" and nude lipsticks that don't make me look like a corpse.

Stockholm is a a very warm light peachy brown that is a bit too orange for my skin tone. Someone about NC35 and darker would find this to be a lovely warm nude, however.

Zurich is what I wanted to find in Stockholm. It is a light peachy pink with just enough brown that mixes very well with my skintone and natural lip color. The lipstick is definitely full coverage but as it starts to wear down a bit and my natural lips peek through, it's a complement rather than a contrast, especially when I mix it with my rose oil.

Cannes is a darker, slightly cooler, pinkier version of Zurich that I'm fairly convinced would look good on anyone. It is such a beautiful color and I didn't have any texture or fading issues with this, which is important since it's a darker shade (and dark lipsticks can tend to bleed matter what brand you buy).

Overall I highly recommend these especially if you're trying out the matte lipstick trend and don't feel like dropping 30 bucks on one tube of lipstick. These are cruelty free, have a huge range of colors, and are very affordable. Just be sure to exfoliate your lips first and you'll be good!

Eyeliner -NYX - NYX faux blacks Burnt Sienna

on 9/4/2017 10:54:00 AM

A dark brown-redish khol waterliner, quite soft, turns darker when applied in waterline, very very long lasting (easily goes 8-10 hrs without retouching your makeup) and very interesting to wear with nude eyeshadows. Dont worry about looking like an idiot with a red eyeliner, it appears very dark in the waterline! Burnt sienna is the best one out of all faux blacks in terms of longevity (the green and blue toned faux balck eyeliners fade quicker and turn kinda gray in the waterline). Cons: as with other faux blacks, you have to sharpen the pen almost every time you use it, so you'll run out of it pretty soon if u use it every day. The biggest con is removing the eyeliner: it dries down to chunky parts that stick to the waterline, and if those chunky part get in your eye - ouch! Be quite careful with removal wipes. I won't give it up yet, but it's not exactly an eye friendly eyeliner.

Lipstick -NYX - Snow White

For a cheap thrill this was such a wonderful surprise! I love how evocative the name is. Lips as red as blood, skin as white as snow, hair as black as a raven's wing... that's me with this lipstick! Though unfortunately my black hair is dyed right now...
This is a true blood red, a little bit vampy and romantic rather than a straight red. Wear it in the fall, with your favourite wine-coloured sweater, or rock it when you want to look chic in a bar.

Powder -NYX - Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation

on 9/3/2017 10:47:00 AM

I tried this back in 2012. I feel as if they changed the formula.

The 2012 formula was closer to MAC Studio Fix powder plus. The updated version I bought in 2017 is a lighter coverage with shimmer in it. So it's a nice glow to the skin.

The old version was cakey and not as finely milled. The new version is definitely more finely milled. The only downside I can find to this new version is the lack of coverage. If they stepped that up this would be a HG.

But for now I'll stick to other powder foundations.

Mmm...didn't do anything for me. I didn't see a difference in application, wear time, or appearance in my makeup.


Other -NYX - Pro foundation mixer

I am about nc10-nc15, neutral leaning yellow undertones. I always always always have to mix a lightener into my foundation to get it to match me. I was using manic panic dreamtone until I looked closer at the ingredients. My skin does not agree with parabens so I began looking for an alternative. I'm also always looking for the cheapest options so when I came across this I was pleasantly surprised.

This mixer does not have any irritating, clogging, or acne causing ingredients imo. my skin is oily and acne prone with red acne scars. This has not irritated my skin or caused any breakouts. The formula is just like a liquid foundation, not too thin and not thick either. It mixed well with a liquid foundation and also a thick mousse foundation I have. The white color is opaque and lightens other colors well. It is matte and does not contain any shimmer or glowy/illuminating effects.

I got this bogo 50% at ulta's website. I could not find it anywhere in store.

Lip Gloss -NYX - Butter Gloss

I'm not a huge lip gloss person. Usually most of my lip gloss's are bought and then thrown in my kit for clients and i don't use them. I had a couple of these but don't generally use them or any glosses for that matter. If anything is on my lips it is a stain, lipstick, lip liner, lip crayon, or a liquid lip. Lately though my lips have been quite dry, and I've been only able to use lip balms and treatments as anything else, even if it doesn't dry my lips out, doesn't help the situation. Because of that, despite the fact that i generally don't enjoy the glossy/sticky feel on my lips, I've been using glosses as they are more moisturizing and still have some color. I have to say since I started using glosses, these are AMAZING. They are SO moisturizing and very thick/creamy feeling but not at all sticky. I liked them enough to actually go out and buy another color for myself! (Quite the feat since I have never bought two of the same lip gloss before). They aren't all extremely pigmented, it depends on the color, some are more sheer and some are more intense but they all have a good amount of color. Very happy with these.

Lipstick -NYX - Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks

I have this in the shade, Respect the Pink. It is an electric magenta pink cream. Dries to a matte finish. I did not like the texture of this at all once it dried on my lips. It felt like someone had glued plastic wrap to my mouth. It was also very gloppy and messy to work with.

Highlighters -NYX - Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter

on 8/30/2017 8:02:00 AM

This product is a decent highlighter- definitely more subtle than other highlighters that NYX makes. The only thing that I don't like a lot is the doe foot application- I find this makes it slightly tricky to apply the highlighter in all the right places because I prefer to just apply this with my index finger. The product itself can give more higher end brands a run for their money because this is an affordable option for a liquid highlighter.






Highlighters -NYX - Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator - Sunbeam

This product is best used as either an addition to a primer or a very small addition to foundation. It is way too pigmented and shimmery to use alone as a highlighter. I prefer to mix a VERY small drop into primer to give you a little bit of a dewy glow. I do love that this is an affordable option that is slightly similar to Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops. Just remember: a little goes a long way!
