I have this and Pro Lash and I reach for Pro Lash a lot more. Zoom is very wet and clumpy on my lashes. I actually had to wait a few months to use it in hopes that it would dry out a bit. It flakes sometimes. However, I just purchased Mac Prep+Prime lash primer and Zoom lash no longer flakes and my lashes don't look as clumpy. Sometimes it makes some of my lashes point downwards and some lashes stick straight out. I have no clue why but I won't buy this again. I will only use it when I get a free sample with purchase.
I received this in a swap months ago and tried it once. Then I decided to give it another try because the color is so gorgeous in the pan. I'm glad I decided to keep it. For some reason, it applies so smooth and blends like a dream unlike other matte shadow I own. I like using this all over the lid with Brown Script on the outer corner and Coppering in the crease. I use Femme Fi as a highlight. NC42-44 for reference.

Honestly I bought this because of how pretty it looked in the tube, lol. But it does look gorgeous on the lips. It looks great over NYX lipstick in Tea Rose. The color payoff is awesome however it doesn't last more than maybe 2 or 3 hours. And if u plan on eating you will need to re-apply afterwards. I will re-purchase this again if I can find it at my CCO. This is not a permanent shade.
This is becoming my favorite eyeliner for the lower lashline when I don't feel like doing any dramatic makeup. On my olive skin, it gives a subtle khaki, olive green color with a hint of gold. I like wearing this with Zoom or Pro Lash mascara, Sunbasque blush and a nude lip. This does smudge after a few hours but since the color is so subtle, it doesn't matter to me:)

Found this recently at a CCO for a reasonable price so I decided to give it a try. I am a huge sucker for greens and teals so this was right up my alley. Photo Realism and Fresh Approach are my favorites in this quad. I do agree with one of the other reviewers that the colors tend to melt together throughout the day and there is no real distinction of color after a while. I have no clue why this happens. Maybe the shadows are lower quality than normal permanent shadows but I still love this palette.
This is my first NYX lipstick and I'm glad I chose this color. Like another reviewer said, this shows up alot brighter on the lips which is a plus for me since my lips are pigmented. The color payoff is excellent and the staying power is unbelievable for a drugstore lipstick. Highly recommend this especially for olive-dark skintones. I'm NC42-43 for reference.
I really like this color as a highlight or as a wash with Folie and Brown Script in the crease and Dipdown fluidline liner. This is very similar to Grain but just a bit more pearly shimmer.

I received this in a swap. When I first tried it on, all I saw was shimmer. But with a heavier application, I got a gorgeous mid-tone pink with pearly sheen to it. Perfect as an everyday color and looks awesome mixed with Peachtwist which tends to be too dark on me. For reference I am NC42.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

The best gel liner ever. Been using this for 5 months and has not dried out. Goes on smooth, no streaking, cracking or smudging. Love this and will re-purchase
I would describe Naked as a beige with a pearly shimmer. The shimmer is very minimal. Naked is just perfect for work or a night out with maybe a red or fushia lipstick. I love it. You can mix it with a moisturizer or foundation to add a pretty glow to your skin. I am waiting for summer to try it on my cheeks but for now I like wearing it as a brow highlight or as a wash all over the lid.
I got this in a swap yesterday and I must say, this might become one of my everyday colors or at least on that I will reach for on a regular basis. The color is just like the name; tan but is a warm tan with a pretty shimmer. The shimmer is not over the top. For me I would wear this all over the lid with some black or brown gel liner and a bright lip color. I'm thinking that this would also make a gorgeous cheek highlighter in the summer. Overall, Tan is a very wearable pigment for any skintone.
I got this from my CCO months ago and just now decided to wear it. This lipstick is gorgeous! I would describe it as a coppery-rust colored red, if that makes sense. It is a frost so to tone down the frost a bit, I apply Soft and Slow lipglass or even C-thru over top. This is the perfect red for deep olive tones girls-NC 40+. This was released with the Neo Sci Fi collection so I believe it's LE. If I ever run out I will have to hunt this down again.
This is thee perfect bright pink blush for olive/warm skin. It has a satin finish and lasts all day. Not nearly as bright as it looks in the pan but it can definitely be layered to make it really bold. If I ever ran out of this I would repurchase but it is LE and difficult to find in stores.
I bought this after I purchased Gladiola lipstick. I love, love love this lipglass. I wish all lipglass was this pigmented. On me it is a bright fushia/magenta. It goes perfect with Gladiola and maybe even Show Orchid. This is the perfect shade for us warm girls who have a hard time pulling off fushia lip colors.
On my hand Nymphette is a mid-tone pink with gold shimmer. On my lips is a very light barely-there pink with a gold sheen. It's like Expensive Pink but in lipglass form. I love it. It goes great with gold eye looks. The gold is not over the top and it's not gritty like some of the dazzleglasses. Sometimes I use it over Viva Glam V or just on it's own.
