Latest NYX Professional Makeup Reviews

HD Photogenic Concealer

it's great, lasts, blends easily, somewhat buildable. but I was very surprised that it runs out easily, 3g are not enough. I used so little and it ran out fast still. also it clings and defines textures and dry patches. apply tiny quantities and build up, I used fingers for that... best moisturize before using it under the eyes. I'm sooo disappointed that it didn't last more than few months. it's one of the few products that respect undertones and has decent quality and good pricing. but I can't keep buying it online to have it run out so fast. that's a big no for me. I do have a stick concealer that has even out lived this one and it's still on its last dregs. at least 2 extra grams would have helped.

This is my favorite eye shadow primer ever. I have incredibly oily hooded eyes and a lot of the time when I do eye shadow looks they end up faded or in my crease by lunchtime, but this changes everything. I use this with all of my eye shadows and it creates a tacky base that prevents them from transferring. It also made me retry some of the patchy metallic shades in my collection that I had given up on and now I have so much more fun makeup to play with. Definitely a new staple in my collection!

Professional Makeup Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks

The price is great and so is the colour selection. Component looks nice and is a decent quality. Lipsticks are really pigmented and apply extremely easy. They don't dry down completely but still stay on for a good amount of time. They do transfer a little bit so few touch-up will be needed throughout the day (especially with darker colours). I found them really comfortable on lips and not drying at all. Out of the seven shades I tried, deep purple shade "Subversive Socialite“ was the ony one that applied a little patchy and needed more than one coat to look even (however, this seems to be a consistent problem when it comes to darker purple shades with other brands as well). I overall really enjoy liquid suede lipsticks from NYX and reach for them pretty often. Would definitely recommend them.
