Lips -NYX Professional Makeup -Soft Matte Lip Cream (All)

on 8/21/2018 7:15:00 AM


• No transfer once they dry down
• Wide color range
• Long wearing, no smudging
• They don't get crumbly
• Very comfortable
• Pleasant scent
• Affordable

• Sheer formula, can't get full opacity (at least with the darker shades)
• Patchy during application
• Different color than the tube

Overall, 7/10. I have the shade Berlin which is a deep reddish brown. I really enjoy this formula when I'm looking for a sheer lip product that doesn't transfer. I love how comfortable it feels on the lips.

Lip Gloss -NYX Professional Makeup -Intense Butter Gloss (All)

on 8/21/2018 7:04:00 AM


This is such a pigmented gloss. Mine is in the shade Cookie Butter which is probably the lightest one. You definitely need to exfoliate your lips before wearing these so they don't accentuate texture. They don't feel too sticky. I prefer sheer glosses because fully pigmented ones transfer to my teeth, but this one is the exception (maybe just because of the light shade but I'm still satisfied). They are very affordable so I totally recommend checking them out.

Lipstick -NYX Professional Makeup -Matte Lipstick - Whipped Caviar

on 8/21/2018 1:50:00 AM


This is a gorgeous, long-wearing lipstick, but the dusty mauve shade ends up looking a little grayish on my light, warm-toned skin. For skin with a yellow undertone, it just might not be the most flattering choice. It's also a little drying and tends to settle into the lines in my lips unless I apply lip balm underneath. You can't beat the value of NYX, though, and I do think the color would be really beautiful and versatile on most skin tones.

Lipstick -NYX Professional Makeup -Extra Creamy Round Lipstick (all)


I tried Strawberry Milk and Baby Pink. I bought them both because of the pastel and cool undertones - I find cooler toned colors harder to come by when it comes to drugstore lipsticks.
Strawberry Milk was incredibly streaky and it broke the day I bought it. I assumed it was due to the shipping, as I ordered it from Amazon.

Then I tried Baby Pink which is a cooled toned frost similar to harmonica but cooler. I liked the color a lot but this one broke too.
I like that these are very affordable but I've realized the packaging is garbage which is why these break all the time. There are other colors that look really unique I'd love to try but after both of the ones I've purchased broke, I'm not taking any chances again with this line.

If NYX were to raise their prices for the extra creamy round line in order to get sturdier packaging I'd reconsider buying more - I use L'oreal and Maybelline which cost a bit more but are still really well made and have never broken, and still relatively cheap. Anyone else feel the same way?

Summary: pretty colors but packaging is super flimsy so it's not worth it

Liquid -NYX Professional Makeup -Can't Stop Won't Stop Full Coverage Foundation

on 8/20/2018 1:21:00 PM


So this is a partial review.... I just bought this today and haven't worn it on my face yet. But I wanted to start a review based just on the shade and undertone range so far. I picked Nude. I am fair with yellow undertones. Nude is the absolute most perfect match of any foundation I've ever tried. I swiped it on my neck and it virtually disappeared into my skin. Truly, never had this happen before. The consistency is light and it dries super matte super fast. I'm going to wear it to work and gym tomorrow (Florida summer humidity and heat and an hour and a half or hard sweaty workout) and will post the full review after. The price was $15 at Ulta but they always have a $3.50 off coupon so honestly it's a great price especially for the amount of product you get. Glass bottle shows the true color of the foundation and the pump is perfect! Squirts out just the right amount. So far, I'm loving this! Stay tuned.....
