Eye Shadow -NYX Professional Makeup -ultimate warm neutrals


The NYX Warm Neutrals palette has quickly become a staple in my makeup routine.

I originally purchased this palette because I wanted to try warm tones, and maybe I'm biased because this palette helped me realize that warm tones are indeed more flattering on me. But this palette is also a near dupe of Urban Decay Naked Heat, for those interested.

Although the swatches are unimpressive, the shadows perform beautifully on eyelids over eyeshadow primer (which I absolutely need for my oily eyelids). The mattes are pigmented and easy to blend, and this has great transition shades. I reach for the orangey shade in the last row, the brown shade above it, and the matte red the most, they're such perfect transition shades for brown skin. The shimmers aren't quite as good as the mattes. They are indeed very smooth, but need to be layered a bit more to achieve the most impact. I tend to apply them using my fingers.

I think the only problematic shade is the rose gold in the second row. It fades faster than the other shimmers and takes more layering to even get to the rose goldiness. I also tend to stay away from the first row in general, as the two bone-coloured mattes are a bit chalkier than the other mattes, and the two shimmers on top are too pale for my taste. The bottom twelve shades are all great, though. I use the mattes almost every day from this palette, and the coppery red shimmer is my favourite shade.

Overall, I think this palette has an easy-to-use formula. The mattes are a staple, and the shimmers are wonderful when built up. It's a very versatile palette and it's easy to create everyday and bold looks.

Lipstick -NYX Professional Makeup -Professional Makeup Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks


These lipsticks are really good for their price. The formula is pretty good. However, it can be a little drying so make sure to put on some lip balm before putting this on. They have a great variety of shades and you can have a lot of fun playing with color.

As for lasting power, it can last a long time and survive eating meals and drinking. But you probably will need to do a touch-up afterwards.

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

on 7/18/2018 10:27:00 AM


This was a great buildable foundation for me. I like a light layer to even out more tone and it does just that. Applies evenly with my beauty blender. The trick for me is simply to moisturize and then apply without primer. I just don't need it for some reason when using this foundation. The color can oxidize a bit but it is affordable enough for me to have it in multiple shades.

I also love that when I choose to, I can add a few drops to a heavier coverage expensive foundation to match w/e color I am that day before a night out. I'd say if you tan easily or have trouble matching colors then this is the perfect secret weapon.

Blush -NYX Professional Makeup -Ombré Blush

on 7/15/2018 7:31:00 PM


I have this in the bright apricot shade called Feel the Heat. At first glance it looks neon and overwhelming. While it's highly pigmented, all you need to do is slightly tap your brush into the powder before tapping it into the apples of your cheeks. Gives me a radiant flush that lasted me throughout sitting outside for hours in 100 degree weather. The Feel the Heat shade suits my medium tan skin perfectly... definitely a staple for brown skin!!!

Eyeliner -NYX Professional Makeup -Liquid Crystal Liner - ALL


I have one of these in a pale gold shade, and I quite like it. I am a bit surprised at the bad reviews here since this is just a standard glitter liner. It isn't amazing or jaw-dropping, but it applies glitter in a thin line on the eye or the face. I have never experienced any kind of burning when I use this, so I imagine that NYX might have changed the formulation. The color is pretty, and neutral enough that it can be incorporated into daytime/neutral looks pretty easily.
