Review based on one coat of regular (not waterproof) mascara, long-wearing eyeliner on top lid only, primer, and eye shadow (day/office-appropriate look).

This product removes eye shadow without too much effort. However, it is not very effective with mascara and eyeliner. It takes 2 or 3 applications and those products are still not gone. This would be a nightmare with heavy eye …

I love this shade of eye shadow!

I was looking for a navy blue eye shadow. This was a little lighter shade of navy and looked to have a slight sheen. On the eye it has green undertones--even better! The more you blend, the more the green shows.

Like all NYX powder eye shadows, I don't find this to be the best quality. It is very powdery and blends away quickly. …

Like all NYX powder eye shadows, I don't find this to be particularly great quality. As others noted, it is very powdery and blends away quickly.

Having said that, it is a beautiful everyday color with enough sheen to be flattering but not shiny or glittery. Very fair skin tones may find this to be a little dark. The price is also right.

All things considered, I …

Lipstick - Lipstick Queen - Medieval

This is a sheer, rose lipstick. It is supposed to be red, but it definitely didn't play that way on my lips.

PROS: I really loved the emolliant quality. It was very moisturizing through the entire wear time and didn't get goopy when I reapplied. Also, unlike others I found it to be very buildable.

CONS: It was so sheer I needed several coats to get anything …

Lipstick - Lipstick Queen - Sheer Lipstick Saint Eden

Lipstick Queen Sheer Lipstick in Saint Eden is described on the package as a Watermelon color. It is definitely a bright, pink-ish red, but very wearable on my somewhat thin lips. It applied beautifully, with a satiny finish.

After 4 hours (no drinking or eating), the satin had dried to almost a matte stain but didn't feel dry. It wore away slightly from the middle of my lips …

Eye Shadow - LORAC - Eye Shadow in Moonstone

LORAC does not get enough love imo. The single eyeshadows are great quality-beautiful colors and wonderful pigmentation. I can get decent (6-8 hours) wear with my very oily eyelids. If I use a primer, this will go 12+ with no problem.

As the others described, Moonstone is a great everyday neutral. I have almost finished my second container.

Blush - NYX Professional Makeup - Rouge Cream Blush - Hot Pink

I bought this based on reviews here and I love it. I have avoided cream blushes because I thought they would be difficult to work with but I don't think this one is a problem.

It is pretty pigmented, but easy to blend. I usually use a stippling brush and just gradually add more as I need it. I was intimidated by Hot Pink but it gives me the perfect rosy glow. I have no problems …
