Eye Primer - NYX Professional Makeup - Eyeshadow Base in Skin Tone

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/23/2009

The only other eyeshadow base I've tried is (surprise, surprise) Urban Decay's Primer Potion, which is always so popular.

As far as just plain quality of product goes, I'd have to say Primer Potion is better. It makes the colors pop more, it's almost totally crease proof (whereas this creases a little) and I've slept with eyeshadow on that hasn't come off …

Polishes - NYX Professional Makeup - Antique

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/23/2009

I love nyx's nail polishes and this is no exception. The pigmentation is fantastic, just one coat of this is enough to get good color. It goes on really smooth and dries relatively fast.

The color is gorgeous. It's a bronze-gold color with a lot of metallic shimmer in it. It looks brown until it catches the light and then it shines beautifully gold. It feels very …

Mascara - NYX Professional Makeup - Doll Eye Mascara

4.0

I was so hoping that this would be my HG mascara, but I guess it's just not to be... This is a good mascara, but not fantastic.

I have naturally very long eyelashes with a bit of curl, and I was originally going to get the volume formula, but changed my mind because several reviews said they preferred this to the volume one. But, on my lashes, it almost makes them look too …

Lip Gloss - NYX Professional Makeup - Mega Shine - Plum #143

Darn those online swatches. The swatch on the NYX website for this color is accurate in pigment, but I didn't realize that it would be SO opaque. I was hoping for some sheerness.

As berry tones are in this winter, I got this knowing that my pale, pale skin probably couldn't pull off a deep berry lipstick, but perhaps the sheerness of a gloss would be light enough to do the …

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Indian Pink

Nov/23/2009

Wow, I'm surprised by some of these reviews saying how "orangey" this looked, and by the photos of this on people's lips. I guess it just goes to show how much makeup is a combination of the color in the tube as well as your own coloring.

On me there is some orangeness but it isn't very pronounced. I'd say it's more like a medium-light pink that …

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Ceto

4.0

Nov/23/2009

Well, as said by the previous reviewer, this doesn't look at all like the swatch on Nyx's website. I was hoping that this would be a sort of neutral light pink-nude. It's more like a light bronzy pink.

That said, I quite like it anyway. It's neutral enough to be daytime wear, but it's so frosty/shimmery that it's still fun and playful. It seems to be …

Conditioner - L'Oreal Paris - EverPure Moisture Conditioner

Jun/15/2009

I think it's interesting how people either love or hate this product. Anyway... I don't really like this. It doesn't seem to moisturize at all. The smell makes me think of toilet bowl cleaner or something. Luckily, I managed to score a bottle of Bed Head Dumb Blonde reconstructor for $3 at Safeway on the discount counter (it was probably a return, but I'm okay with that) …Read more

Shampoo - Shi Kai - Color Reflect Shampoo Gold

This shampoo is great! I just dyed my hair (again) and this is just what I needed.

To summarize what my hair has gone through, I bleached it in august, but decided to grow it out because I didn't want to maintain it & keep damaging my hair. I dyed it red in december but it faded back to blond, and plus the top 5 or so inches of my hair were my natural color. So just last …

Shave Products - eos - Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream in Vanilla Bliss

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/08/2009

This stuff is quite nice, but I'm on the fence about it. It's quite expensive for what you get. It's about $1 more than the foamy style shave creams, but you get a lot more shaves out of one of those bottles than you get out of this.

However, this shave cream has one big plus - you can shave totally dry, pretty much anywhere, anytime it's convenient for you. I …

Conditioner - L'Oreal Paris - Vive Pro Color Vive Conditioning Spray

Jun/08/2009

This is definitely a winner for me. I picked this up for $5 at Rite Aid, looking for something to throw in my beach bag that would condition/detangle my hair and protect it from the sun. But, it works so well that I actually keep it on my bathroom counter at home and use it every day. It smells fantastic, it detangles my curly hair, makes it incredibly soft, and it has UV filters. …Read more
