Powder -NYX Professional Makeup -Color Correcting Powder

on 3/24/2019 1:25:00 PM

I bought this powder in the shade lavender which is a light purple tinted color. I know that sounds kinda scary but it doesn't leave any color on the skin. In fact, I don't understand how this powder color corrects. However, it is a great under eye setting powder. If you have fair to light/medium skin this powder is a hidden gem. It leaves my under eye so smooth. Zero dryness when I use this. Most powders at least leave me looking slightly dry but not this one. It brightens just the right amount too.

Pros:
Leaves the under eye smooth
Not drying at all
Doesn't emphasize my under eye wrinkles
Brightens
Affordable

Cons:
I can only find this on the NYX website
You don't get much product

Overall, this one is a keeper. It's my favorite powder for my under eyes. It's beating all my high end powders for this area. If most powders leave your under eye dry and looking older, try this one!

Kinda have mixed feelings about this product. I dislike the smells. Overall just a so so primer. I’d prefer Rimmel primer which is good value for money.

Yikes! I was really hoping to like this foundation and was excited by the range of colors, but this was not a great formula formula for me at all and I was really surprised considering I have skin that gets pretty oily throughout the day. As soon as I put this on it got sucked into my skin and it basically sucked the life out of me. This accentuated dry patches I didn't know I had. Essentially, this sets on its own without a powder...which makes me nervous as I can't imagine not setting my foundation.

Regarding the shades offered: as versatile as the range is, I'm thinking it all runs more yellow than expected. I am neutral to yellow toned and went with true beige which is supposed to have warmer undertones. Applied to the darker part of my arm it seemed a little too yellow, but workable. But as soon as I applied to my face I swear, no joke, it looked like kraft mac and cheese yellow/orange. I ended up returning it.

At Target, the nyx display of these foundations includes the name of each shade as well as a description including the undertones. "True beige" which I picked up from CVS, was nowhere to be found (I was trying to show it to my friend who was shopping with me at Target). Using the display as my guide, I picked out the shade "Nude" which was described as being some lighter medium shade with neutral undertones. When I swatched it on the darker part of my arm, it seemed to blend in almost perfectly. It definitely oxidized, but it seem to oxidize to the perfect shade. My face is just a little darker than my body and my neck is a little darker than my face. Cute, right?

The next morning, I went to apply the "Nude" shade onto my face and I was horrified. It was significantly lighter than what I thought it would be and looked like on my arm. TBC...

I bought this in light in order to give light and good coverage under my eyes. It's not drying my skin, blends very well but it IS NOT full coverage concealer. I only used for highlighting the areas of my face left, after cream contouring. For this matter worked perfect because it is lightweight but still having some coverage.

Pressed Powders -NYX Professional Makeup -#NoFilter Finishing Powder

If you need a powder to keep your face matte, this is not it. I was impressed though by the texture of the powder. Very finely milled, does not makes my pores bigger but it does not "fill" them, like any loose powder can do. It has a very light sheen and gives your face an overall light that if you don't have serious texture in your skin like me, that could be perfect for your skin to seem luminous in a not oily way. But for me did not work because I have some acne and texture in my skin and this accentuates it much. I gave this 3 stars because seems like a very good product but only if you have not texture issues with your skin.

I'm not a fan of powder eyeshadow, especially not metallic powder eyeshadow, so I really like this. I got the shade Rose Pearl, which looks like a much lighter pink on my skin than it does in the tube (unfortunately). I use a bit of this for a (sheer-ish) wash of color. It goes on, and, more importantly, dries down to very smooth satin shimmer, without that crepe-y, over-powdery look and fallout I get from powder shadows. I gobbed this on once pretty heavily, and did get a clumpy foil effect, but overall I find this pretty easy to avoid, given this formula and dispenser type (a doe foot tube containing quite a generous amount of product). I would repurchase if this ever runs out, maybe in Sweet Cloud (described as "champagne" but swatches look peach-y) or Evening Spell, which looks either like a muted plum or vibrant fuchsia shade (I guess the application is key).

Palettes -NYX Professional Makeup -Brights Ultimate Shadow Palette

foto

It's a bit pricey for drugstore, but it's worth it. There's no palettes like it at the drugstore and the bigger palettes such as Take Me To Brazil by BH are too big and I know I'd never use it up. This one is compact & travel friendly all the while having a good variety of rainbow shades.
I've never had a problem with the pigmentation. I use NYX's white eye shadow base and it makes the colors pop. I never use these without a good primer and base. They go on kind of dry on primer alone. If you use a tacky base they really pop.
The looks you can create with this palette are endless. It's a fun palette!

Eyeliner -NYX Professional Makeup -Faux Blacks Eyeliner - Oxblood

The good: this colour is so unique. I love it for darker looks and tightlining my lower lashes. My eyes don't look smaller with it the way it does with black liner. The bad: over time, the crayon has come loose and slid out of the wood sheath. I am unable to sharpen it now, so I had to throw it out when I was only halfway through it. Overall: I would buy this again even though I am disappointed because I didn't get to finish my first one. What would keep me from buying it again is finding the same colour in another brand that I like better and I know will last longer.

Primer/ Corrector -NYX Professional Makeup -Pore Filler

on 3/19/2019 9:58:00 AM

I have very large pores and have tried a multitude of pore fillers to hide them. This is one of the few that does the job for me. I don't care for the texture out of the bottle. It comes out of the tube like thick toothpaste and is a little slippery but that super thick texture probably plays a part in why it stays put. I warm it up with my fingertips then dab it on to fill the pores and lightly smooth it out. This leaves my skin too slippery for foundation to stay put so on days I wear foundation I layer primer over the pore filler before applying foundation. Most days I just use the pore filler and tinted moisturizer over it. Either way, I use this product almost every day.

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

I like this product enough where I want to buy more shades to see how they perform! I have the color Amsterdam which is the red tube pictured above. In my opinion it is a few shades lighter than what is pictured on the tube. Truthfully, I normally stray away from intense colors because I hate seeing the obvious line between my outter lip that keeps the lip color and the inner lip that loses product faster because of saliva aka butthole lip. But I think this product may be a happy medium for me.

The product itself is a weird texture, but weird in a good way. I personally like it, but I could see other people not. It’s like a creamy mousse, but after a few seconds it starts to feel more drying and after a full five minutes it will completely dry down. I honestly don’t mind drying lipsticks, but even for me - I feel this. Personally, I would stay far far away if you have chapped lips!

This is pretty budge proof; however, it did lose a lippie for me because it does wear down (sometimes a little unevenly) from food, drink, and even from licking your lips. Someone mentioned they don’t get the dreaded “butthole lip” from this and I wish that was true for me too - but it does happen. Luckily, this product is a dream to reapply and doesn’t ball up on itself. Basically, the outter ring of my lips will be there and I have to fill in the missing part. Honestly, I don’t mind it because it’s easy enough to do without a mirror (since you don’t have to worry about getting your lip line since product stays there). This is where it won me over because I have such a hard time reapplying liquid lips without a mirror and have had horrible experiences with product buildup. This one is easy enough to maintain if you are committed to reapplying it after wear down!

This is one of the only brighter lipsticks I have worn to work and was able to keep up with throughout the day. That’s how I knew it was a winner for me. I usually get embarrassed and will remove my bold lip if I think it might be smudging or look patchy on my lip - didn’t happen this time around. Can’t wait to try more shades, especially vampy! If that turns out to be a bad experience I will definitely be back to update!

Lip Gloss -NYX Professional Makeup -Candy Slick Glowy Lip Color

I love this! I got it in Birthday Sprinkles.... I love the application and the color stays on all day... almost like a stain. But it's not matte (which I love being an older woman) it's shiny at first but even after the shine dulls the color is still there.... will definitely buy again. Very inexpensive

The consistency is nice in the middle- not too thick and not runny. The color payoff is medium. Glossy, tacky but not too sticky. I dislike the fruity artificial scent. Not enough to return it, but enough that I won't buy another.

Highlighters -NYX Professional Makeup -Dose of Dew Face Gloss

Admittedly I am a cream product lover, I have been for years since my skin shifted from oily to dry (thanks hormones, you find so many ways to influence my body, lol). I routinely use either rms Living Luminizer or Burt’s Bees Highlight stick in Opal Mist but I couldn’t help myself when I saw this on sale at my local drugstore. As other reviewers mentioned the cap on this doesn’t feel like it secures well but the product - omg, this is exactly the wet glossy-looking skin I love to have! It is closer to Living Luminizer in terms of subtlety but with the ease of application in stick form like Burt’s Bees. I’m kicking myself for not purchasing this sooner. It is completely my jam! The shade is a champagne pink that looks neither yellow nor pink on the skin. It is more of a pale peachy beige, but wet/glossy more than anything. Staying power is good, lasts all day/night on me. If I’m looking for something a bit more intense I still apply this and follow up with a light dusting of powder highlight on top.

I only had this foundation on my face once during a shade match and it was enough to convince me to not buy it. After around 2 minutes it started feeling extremely tight on my face and i had to take it off right after. It also accentuated my pores and fine line around my nose. Would not recommend
