This brush sheds like crazy and leaks dye when I wash it. Waste of money. The brushes arnt kept in packaging, they just all sit out on the display for anyone to touch. I have noticed that there are two slightly different versions of this brush (possibly a difference in manufacturing?) which might explain why some people love it and some hate it: some brushes have pure white long bristles and some …Read more

I really like the texture and pigmentation of this eyeshadow, it has a nice soft satin finish and blends beautifully.
It is quite a cool colour and swatches nicely on my hand, though once its on my eyes the colour pulls more towards gray than brown. Unfortunatly I much prefer warmer tones on me and have to be careful what I pair this with: too cold a colour and the whole look is wrong for …

Very pretty. I like wearing this over black eyeliner to give a gorgeous dark sparkle. Staying power is really great and I have no problems with fall out or flaking as with some other glitter liners, in fact I even sometimes have a tough time getting the last few sparkles out from between my eyelashes.
I love how the glitter is buildable so you ca get a fairly solid line or just a touch of …

Love love love this colour. Goes on smoothly, very pigmented. So pretty and I would love give this a 5 if it wasnt for the fact it wears off in horrible patches which is very noticeable when you have a shimmery colour like this. Trying to reapply it often doesnt work because it wont go on smoothly a second time. I also find the formula a little drying, which I am not sure if its NYX lipsticks in …Read more

I have to be extremely careful with this blush on my NW15 skin. I love the colour but it is SUPER pigmented so I only have to wave the brush in its general direction and pick up too much. Normally I after taking off as much excess as possible I still go over this with powder to tone it down a touch. Still, very pretty when applied well. It would just suit someone much darker than me. I said I …Read more

This is the lipgloss I keep in my handbag for a subtle, everyday look. Texture and colour are great.
NYX is very hard to get here but Im keeping my eye out for other colours to try cos the formula is great.
Only complaint I have is about the scent which is a horrible fake cherry flavour. Luckily it only lasts about 5 minutes but still unpleasant.

I thought this would make a good natural/neutral blending colour but it is far too yellow and has almost a jaundice effect. If you have very fair skin with pink undertones like me I would be careful with this shade.
The shadow itself it a really nice texture and blends well. Just a shame this colour doesnt work for me.

Same problems as a lot of other people: this shadow is chunky and crumbly and overall very hard to work with. I didnt have too much fallout like other people but it was only slightly noticable.
I used this over TFSI and the colour didnt apply evenly and settles into creases as you put it on.
Colour payoff is acceptable but nothing to get too excited about.
Overall I will give a 2 …
