Circe is a great beige nude. If you love Nyx Honey or Echo like me, you will most likely love Circe! Nyx makes some of the best beige based nudes on the market! I reach for my nyx nudes more than my Mac Siss, Fleshpot, or Gaga 2 lipsticks.
I have three of these awesome mattes. Pale Pink, Nude, and Summer Breeze. The formula is awesome. It is matte, highly pigmented, and not drying at all! These new mattes are beyond great for 5.99. Seriously better than Revlon's mattes in the same price point. The three colors I got are the only ones that appealed to me. At Ulta there was a lot of dark campy reds which I'm not into. I hope they come out with more beige nude colors in this matte formula. This is definitely on par with MAC quality. I love the new tube packaging too. It nice that I can see the color without opening the tube. Huge props to whoever designed it! Makes it very functional! Looks very chic but girly.
Eye Primer -NYX - HD High Definition Eyeshadow Base

This works very well for the price, but it doesn't perform better than UD primer potion on me. This didn't crease, but I did notice fading at the end of the day. I would definitely recommend this to someone on a tight budget. This is just good to me, but not my favorite eyeshadow primer for my hooded eyes.
Lipstick -NYX - Round Lipstick in Strawberry Milk #595

I love this pink. It's been sold out at Ulta for weeks, and I finally got my hands on it. It's great with smokey eyes! Pretty matte baby light pink. My lips are highly pigmented and so I always use a light application of LM secret camouflage concealer and liner as a base before applying Nyx lipsticks. This makes the color look true and stay on longer. I love that the lipstick is very moisturizing because my lips dry out easily here in the desert.
I got this color because I felt it was close in color to YSL Pink Lingerie. Gala is definitely warmer and more beige than pink, but is still a nice pale baby pink. Very pale! Well the color is a pretty ultra light pink beige satin. My only complaint is I must layer this over a lipliner and blend. By itself it can be cakey and make my lips look dry. It takes some work to make it look good on me. I don't mind. I love the whole creative process of applying makeup!
These are very pigmented and creamy, and I love it! The nude peach fuzz is a pretty light pink bubble gum color that I am currently obsessed with. For 5.99 at Ulta it's a fabulous drugstore product. Great if you have pigmented lips. The color in the tube is the color on my lips!
Cleansers -Garnier - Moisture Rescue Fresh Cleansing Foam

This actually sucks out the moisture in my skin and is a bit harsh. It is very good at removing makeup, but it doesnt moisturize my skin enough. I going to finish the tube by using this to shave my legs. The name Moisture Rescue is very misleading!
This looks glowy and beautiful, but it oxidizes and gets darker the longer I have it on. Also it does feel slightly heavy/ tight on my skin. I dont like that feeling. I like my foundations to feel dry. This feels creamy on me and takes forever to dry and mesh with my skin. For the price, it's really nice. I still prefer my Laura Mercier Oil-free or Revlon Color stay over this.
My bestfriend loves this lipstick. It looks scary in the tube, but I figured if she loves it, we have the same taste in everything, so I will love it. And guess what? I do! It's great with smokey eyes! Lucky I live in Vegas where anything goes. I can where this out just about anywhere but work. If this is too bright for you try Mac Gaga which is a more sheer version and wearable for day. Super fun party girl color!
I love this nude beige matte. Mac Siss is my all time holy grail lipstick, and this Gaga 2 I like even better. The satin formula is my favorite being that it is highly pigmented. It stays on a long time. This lipstick is a great base for lipglosses in any color. Especially bright ones that I want to be toned down.
I'm nc42 Tan and did not think I could pull this color off, but surprisingly it looks fabulous! I usually hate the lustre formula and it's too sheer for me, but this has great color payoff. I totally agree that this is a more wearable Mac Saint Germaine. Gaga is great for day and Saint Germaine is great at night. Both are gorg!
This gives a nice glowy flawless medium to full coverage. It stays looking great and doesn't oxidize. The oil control is decent, not quite perfect, but it does work better than most powder foundations on the market today. My skin is uber oily, and this wears good enough. It does not irritate or break me out. I'm happy with it for now. Since Chanel changed their formula a few years ago, this is the only powder foundation I can see myself purchasing this again. It's not perfect, but it's good enough. Of course, when Summer comes that will be the real test.
This is very matte and pigmented. Perfect for pigmented lips like mine. The formula is not drying and sticks well. This is a pale pink beige. I don't get any peach tones. It's straight up pink beige. I also own Agatha lipstick and that is a peach based beige nude color. I love both, but I reach for Agatha more than Celebutard.
I've been obssessed with pale matte pink lipsticks lately. This has just enough bubble gum pink but still a baby pink. Great staying power and super pigmented. I like that it is warm with no blue or violet tones. Just pink!
I love Kat Von D lipsticks. It's very pigmented with excellent staying power. This is a very pale matte pinky nude. It's great for layering with lipglosses or other lipsticks. One of the best lipstick formulas ever. No nasty scent. Which is another plus!
