Eye Primer - NYX Professional Makeup - Eyeshadow Base in White

2.0

Jun/18/2017

This product is a base, not a primer but makes eye makeup longevity SUCK. My eyeshadow slides off and even my gel, liquid and pencil eyeliners melt off so easily whenever I use this base. It does make colors more vibrant for a couple hours, but the fact that it melts two hours later makes the benefits completely moot. I've tried using less product, which helped, but it still melted …Read more

I've seen mixed reviews on this product; people either really love or hate it. I think it doesn't deserve the negative reviews since they seem to be from people who have a hair type this product is not meant for. It contains egg whites which act as a protein. If your hair is not porous, coarse, damaged or otherwise in need of extra protein, a product like this WILL make it feel very dry …Read more

Lips - REVLON - Colorburst Matte Balm (All Shades)

The colors I bought were Sultry and Standout and I will review them below:

Sultry - For me, this is a perfect nude+. I have fair-ish skin (NC25) but naturally dark lips (pinkish brown). This makes nude and pink products tricky for me to find, and bold colors are my comfort zone. This is perfect for daytime, work and school. Definitely nothing show-stopping, but makes my overall …

Polishes - Essie - Stylenomics

I was a bit disappointed in this polish. Online and in the bottle, this seems like a dangerously dark and interesting shade of green. However, when I painted it on my hands, it just turned black and only under very direct sunlight can you see hints of green. I feel that the advertisements were very misleading. Also, this polish stains like crazy even with a base coat. I will continue using this …Read more

I love interesting, unusual colors like this. It's a muted, murky teal-green-grey shade. Pictures online seem (to me) a little bit lighter than when applied on my own hands. But that's fine with me. Apparently other people dig this color too, since it's really been the shade that they comment on most frequently. It goes great with black (or any dark) clothes.

Originally, I had my heart set on trying and buying Dark Side. However, once I applied that in person, I found it too purple and sheer for my taste (I'm used to opaque, matte finishes). The next one that caught my eye was this, Diva. More red-brown-burgundy and appropriate for my warm, fair skin. The lasting power is great. A couple swipes over a thin layer of chapstick lasted me a whole 6 …Read more

Eyeliner - NYX Professional Makeup - Collection Noir Liquid Black Liner

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this eyeliner. I rave about it all the time to my friends like a crazy person. (almost lol). Previously, I was using Urban Decay's 24/7 liner, and while that is also a good product, it's pretty steep at $23. I tried a few liquid drugstore eyeliners, but none compare quite as well as NYX. The brush is thin (great for drawing sharp wings) and the liquid is very pigmented …Read more

It wasn't love at first sight. I tried this on in the store, and didn't love it right away. I thought it was too dramatic, too deep, too whatever. I kept it on and wore it through the mall and every time I passed a mirror, I began to really love the color. My face seemed brighter and the color faded for a much less dramatic effect. I didn't end up buying a tube that day, but I sure …Read more

This polish looks like nothing special in the bottle, but is GORGEOUS once painted on. Bright, shimmery and shocking. I'm a huge fan of black, pastel and neutral polishes and sorta just bought this to break the monotony. This is the sort of pink that looks fantastic with tanned summer skin, but could also work around the winter holidays. I am NC25 and this shade just "pops" …Read more

Inky, creamy, and opaque, this polish is delicious. It takes me back to my gothic middle school days, but is still shiny and well-formulated enough for me to wear now as a professional 23 year old.

A problem I've had with black polishes in the past is the product becoming very chunky and goopy in the bottle. I've had this polish for a couple months and no such goopiness has …
