Liquid -NYX Professional Makeup -Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation


Love it. I was so tired of thick foundations that felt heavy during the day. I just need something to tone down my redness. This product feels like nothing on my face, I feel like my skin can breathe and it also doesn’t look patchy. It makes my skin look blurred, airbrushes and healthy. Plus that Nyx is cruelty free, this foundation ticks all the boxes for me.

Lipstick -NYX Professional Makeup -Lipstick (In General)


NYX Lipsticks are so handy to use and they come in so many different shades that there is a shade for everyone!
I made a review about 4 of them which I got myself and in the video I shared some information, application and my opinion about the product as well.

Hope you like it too :D

Eye Shadow -NYX Professional Makeup -Nude Matte Eyeshadow - Tryst

on 12/13/2018 5:34:00 PM


Neutral matte eyeshadows may not seem exactly exciting, but they’re precisely what I crave to play up my large green eyes. So I consider Tryst (described by NYX as a “cool brown”) a real find.

Tryst to me is a medium taupe, fairly cool, but with a tendency to “lean” brown. The shadow itself is smooth, well-pigmented, and devoid of that annoying chalkiness lamentably common in matte eyeshadows. The finish is what I’d characterize as “satin” – not shiny, but not flat matte, either. A good primer is necessary under Tryst to ensure that it stays crease-free and color-true for several hours, but for my very oily skin, that’s a given. NYX shadows are < $10 USD each, and can be purchased as either a pan-only refill, or in a simple but serviceable clear-lidded black plastic single compact.

I love to wear Tryst on the lid, with a deeper true taupe like Makeup Geek Faux Fur” in the creases, for an understated neutral design that shifts the focus to my eyes, rather than my makeup.

Tryst, like other NYX products, is cruelty-free and inexpensive, which is more than can be said for many makeup products these days. I’d definitely buy this one again!

Eye Shadow -NYX Professional Makeup -Hot Singles - Over The Taupe

on 12/13/2018 6:08:00 AM


TL;DR: not very pigmented. Great shade, perfectly gray-brown without warm tones - very good brow shadow, crease color for contouring (on pale ppl like me). Not much fallout. Not very long lasting. Haven't tried with primers or wet appl.

Ok, since Nyx has quality control issues: mine was purchased in Sweden in November 2018, on the back is printed M08NWW.
It's a great brow shadow for me (pale/NW13, with relatively dark brows & medium brown/mousy hair). But it's not a very good eyeshadow - it lacks pigment. I say "not very" good since I've only ever owned & used like 4 eyeshadows.
Also, I use eyeshadows almost solely instead of smudgy eyeliner - people looking to "contour" their crease etc might like a somewhat sheerer pigment. I'm trying it now around the eyes as I type and it looks kinda nice for a *very* daytime, soft look.

Lastly, I assume this can be kicked up with primers, or using it wet, which I haven't tried.

On brows I use it with S.O.S., which is a much lighter, perfectly neutral greige shade (seriously: no yellow, peach, pink or violet! At least in this light - bleak daylight by the window).
