Tried this as I've seen a few beauty bloggers rave about it. A pro is that it smells great, which is pretty unusual for makeup! This product claims to give medium coverage- maybe medium if you have great, clear skin. It was light coverage at best (I have awkward freckly skin and a bit of pigmentation). I also think it's the reason for the breakouts all over my forehead currently. Am …Read more

Mehhh. I just couldn't get this stuff to work! No matter how I prepped my skin, it didn't go on well at all. It balled and rolled on my face no matter how I applied it. The coverage wasn't good. Will be sticking with liquid foundations!

One of my fave mascaras ever. The wand is awesome, not only does it separate well but it also creates volume when built up, rather than just go cakey. Have been through probably three tubes and will keep buying it as long as it's made!

I love NYX so when I saw this product I had to give it a go. I'm not a huge matte fan but I like long lasting products, and I feel this product delivers in both ways. I bought the shade tres leche and I love it! The pigmentation is decent and it's glossy and wears pretty well. My only gripe is the shades- I am pretty pale and I felt I could only pull off a couple of shades in this line …Read more

I generally jump from product to product, but am on to my third pot of this cream! I have very dry and sensitive skin, particularly during winter. I apply before bed and can still feel it slightly in the morning. I thought that this may clog my pores, but it hasn't which is great. It is pricey but I love it, it's my go to for night time.

I went to the Benefit counter looking for a good under eye concealer and was talked into buying this. The girl talked about how amazing this stuff is, and that it would help banish my circles, so I wouldn't need as much under eye concealer. Wish I hadn't listened :( This stuff has made no improvement to my under eye area at all. It is moisturising once applied, but only for a brief …Read more

My first micellar cleansing water, and I don't plan on trying anything else. I love it! I don't wear a thick layer of make up, however I do like to cleanse after removing my face at the end of the day just to make sure everything is gone. But with this product I don't need to! I only need about two cotton pads of this product and all my make up (including lips and eyes) is …Read more

Have tried this concealer in multiple shades- my skin tone, contour shades and red and yellow for my under eyes. My only real success with this concealer has been for contouring. As a concealer it provides medium coverage at best. Even when I used the red shade as an under eye color corrector, it faded after a few hours. It works fine as a spot concealer, and it's dirt cheap which is always …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Lash Sensational Washable Mascara

Unfortunately this product didn't make my lashes "sensational". The curved wand is a great idea, and was the reason I tried it, but it had no effect on my lashes. The shaped wand did not alter my lash shape, nor did it provide coverage to all my lashes as I had hoped. I found the formula was thick and struggled to get an even application throughout my lashes. The heavy formula just …Read more

I tried this product after reading the positive reviews, but was sadly it just wasn't for me. Firstly, the packaging is awful. You have to break this stuff up, and it doesn't come with a container. I was told to keep it in the wrapping paper as it is oil-absorbing, but didn't want it to become dry with air contact. The cleanser itself was pretty drying on my skin. It didn't …Read more
