I'm fair and cool toned, and this is a great ashy toned contour powder that isn't too dark. I don't use the highlight, but that's just me, it's a fine product, I'm just not that into highlight. The powder if finely milled and blends well. I use a light hand, so that I don't look too heavily contoured, and I blend well. However, this product does build up …Read more

Honestly, I really like this blush. I use it as my blush/highlighter. It gives a beautiful glow, it lasts ALL DAY and it's affordable. I don't use the colors separately, I just swirl my brush in all 3 and then apply, but it's a great "old school" product that actually works. Sometimes it makes sense to pay more for higher end, and sometimes it doesn't and blush …Read more

I have the worst under eyes, they are crepey, there are fine lines that are vertical as well as horizontal. My under eyes are dry as the Sahara desert even though I slather on expensive thick eye creams every night....honestly, they are just a nightmare. I don't have very dark circles, but I do have bluish discolorations from my inner corner in a half moon shape. Plus, I wear glasses for …Read more

Contour - NYX Professional Makeup - Professional Makeup Wonder Stick

Even though I am very fair and cool toned, I pick up the medium shade, because for some reason the fair shade is more warm on my skin and pulls orange. However, the medium shade has the right ashy tone and doesn't turn orange. The "highlighter" side is awful and just a waste of product in my opinion (I'd rather they give me double the amount of contour!). The contour shade …Read more

If you like the smell of wood smoke and s'mores then you'll love this perfume. When I first spray it, I get a lot of the wood smoke, but the dry down is warm, sweet marshmallow/chocolate/graham cracker smell. I love it SO MUCH. I don't like that the bottle doesn't have an actual lid, and it is pretty darn expensive, but you get a lot of product so it kind of evens out. I …Read more

I do a tight line on my eyes most days and this is the ONLY eyeliner that doesn't smear/disappear in a hot second. It stays put, and stays a true black. It also doesn't irritate my eyes, which is a huge plus, because a lot of the eyeliners I have tried have really bothered my eyes. The consistency is very creamy, the pot seals well so it doesn't dry out quickly and it's …Read more

I was hesitant to buy this, because I haven't had luck with cream blushes in the past...most fade away within a hot second of applying them, and some just break me out. However, this one is GREAT! It stays put (I set it with my Hourglass finishing powder), it doesn't break me out, and it compliments my fair/pale skin tone. The older I get, the more I want to look NATURALLY pretty …Read more

I really love Lorac eyeshadows, they blend beautifully, are pigmented and last all day without creasing. I bought this little matte palette to throw in my bag, and it's perfect for travel. However, I find that I reach for this constantly, not just when I'm traveling! The Jet Black is a VERY black matte, and I use it to line my eyes daily. The packaging is cardboard, but it's …Read more

I am 45, pale caucasion with dry aging skin that still breaks out more than I'd like. I have bought ridiculously high priced moisturizers in the quest to find something that will bring significant moisture to my skin without breaking me out. I actually bought this initially for my teenager, and it worked so well on her skin that one night, I decided to try it and I fell in love. This …Read more

I love this lipstick! I am always on the look out for a nudish pink lipstick that feels good on my lips, not too dry, not too greasy or sticky. I want something that has a little shine to it, but not too much. Well, NYX hit it out of the park with these, I think they are so great, and the shade 12 is my favorite go to every day nude. I like the slim container, and angled tip, makes it easy to …Read more
