Primer/ Corrector -NYX Professional Makeup -Pore Filler

on 5/26/2018 9:43:00 AM


This is one of the very few products that I haven't questioned buying over and over and over again. I don't actually wear makeup on a daily basis (most days I just wear moisturizer, sunscreen, and this) and this product is about 90% of the reason why I feel comfortable with that. It smooths out my skin and gives it a matte finish that lasts all day, and it doesn't make my skin go red like a lot of other products do. (It also doesn't break me out, but I'm not usually prone to acne and it normally takes a lot to break me out, so definitely take that with a grain of salt). I should probably note that I'm 22 so I don't have many lines to fill on my skin, but I really do think this does a great job of filling pores.

Of course, for a drugstore product, I definitely feel like this one is on the expensive side of things (with taxes it's almost $20 CAN) and I find myself running out of it more often than I would like (though I do literally use it every day, so maybe I should be surprised?) but, unless a cheaper and better version of this comes along, I can't imagine not repurchasing it.

Also, I feel like I should warn you that this product looks really, really gross by itself- I have a feeling it does such a good job at filling pores because it lowkey almost looks like something that you would pop out of a pimple and it doesn't really look like something you would want to put on your face, and it almost feels oily when you first put it on but, once you get past all of that, I've found that it really does work brilliantly.

EDIT: I also just realized that I didn't actually mention how this works as a primer when I'm wearing makeup SO- When I'm actually using this as a primer, it's always worked great for me. I'll do my usual moisturizer, sunscreen, primer routine, and then I'll give it all a few moments to set in before I put finishing powder on and then start with my foundation etc. etc. etc. and I find that whatever I'm putting on goes on incredibly smoothly, and manages to last all day before I need to touch it up or (at the very least) do some oil blotting. Really, I don't have any complaints about this product and how it's worked on my skin!

Eyeliner -NYX Professional Makeup -Faux Whites - Eyeliner

on 5/25/2018 10:34:00 PM

Wonderful as eye brighteners and subtle inner corner highlight effect! These come in a variety of pastel colours - cream, mint, baby blue, pale lilac and pale pink. The lilac one (white smoke) contrasts my eye colour and makes it look quite striking.
Staying power is decent and they are quite cheap. I own 5 separate colours, I like them that much!

Brows -NYX Professional Makeup -eyebrow marker

on 5/25/2018 2:32:00 PM

I have this in the color Deep, which looks like a chocolate brown but applies to my fair skin a golden brown color. This is like using a water based marker to sketch in eyebrow hairs. I like to use this to outline my sparse and thinning brows. The color lasts all day for me. I do not use this as a stand alone product. I usually fill in the bare spots of my brows with Milani Brow Pomade in taupe, then outline with the NYX brow marker and sketch in the tail ends of my brow. I finish off the look with a light sweep of the e.l.f shape & stay brow pencil wax in clear. Right now, this is the most natural look I can give my fading eyebrows. For best results, I like to store this brow marker with the tip facing down to keep it from drying out. And I always wipe the tip with a tissue when I am done using it so it does not clog up.

Eyeliner -NYX Professional Makeup -Epic Ink Liner


This eyeliner was suggested to be as an acceptable dupe for Kat von D's Tattoo liner, and I believe it is. It's not as long lasting as Tattoo liner, but it has good pigment, is widely available, and only costs 1/3 of Kat von D's.

I still prefer the Tattoo liner , but I would repurchase the NYX version again if I run out (Kat von D is very hard to find where I live).

Lip Liners -NYX Professional Makeup -Slim Lip Pencil (All)


Amazing staying power, !! Lovely selection of colours. Pricey for a lip liner that is also very difficult to sharpen, so you don't get much use out of it. The actual lip liner itself however is very very good.
