. We are discussing everything NYX Cosmetics. I have a pile of NYX products right in front of me and I have some favorites. I have some hey tits. I have some products that I definitely do not like like strong feelings, and then I have some that I’m totally in love with you guys know the drill, we’re going to go over everything pro and con it out and let’s just hop right in with some good Stuff, let’s start with like the positive: this is a baked blush.
It’s beautiful! I am wearing this right now. This is the shade for play and what’s really interesting about these blushes is you’ll take your finger in the actual blush pan and it feels very stiff. It’s definitely a baked product and you might you know, swatch the back of your hand if you’re in the store and think to yourself like this is not going to give me enough pigment. I don’t know how this will show up on my face, but somehow with a brush when you’re putting it on the apples of your cheeks, it just gives you the most natural kind of satin, finish beautiful glow to your cheeks. I love it. I love the shade. Foreplay, I am wearing this one right now. I also really love the shade wanderlust. This is just a little more toned down a little more neutral sways a little bit on the peachy side. It’s just a beautiful blush wears really well, whereas for a long time does not make me break out, which leads me to my next discussion. A lot of NYX face products. Make me break out. That is sad news for those of us with really sensitive skin, because the products themselves are beautiful. If you can wear them without any irritation, continue wearing them continue, loving them continue buying them, but the ombre blushes, the matte blushes, the matte bronzers. Every time I have consistently used those like I’ll get really into a routine I’ll use them all the time and then I’ll be like what on earth is clogging my pores giving me cystic acne, like I’m getting weird bumps like weird bumps, and it always seems to Be when I eliminate any of the NYX face products that my skin clears up, so I’ve learned my lessson throughout the years.. So I tend to avoid those just based on my own personal reaction and that’s why I don’t have a bunch of them in front of me, but one that does agree with my skin.
Is this one right here? This right here is a contour palette. They have several different shades. It just feels really heavy on the skin. It’s hard to share out it’s hard to blend out. It’s really stiff when you finally get a little bit of warmth to it and you’re working with the product. It feels very floppy and just thick and it looks like heavy makeup. So, if you’re looking for more of a natural type of a look that still you know covers your skin, there are other options out there. This to me feels very theatrical, I’m just not into it. I think there are other options even in the same price range that are better than this. I just really don’t like it, so I’m not a fan of any of these color correcting contour creams, NYX, just not really float my boat in that Avenue whatsoever. Now they do have a dark circle, corrector that I really really love the texture on this one is much surer. It’s still a little bit on the thick side, but kind of a more toned down version of what I just showed you. This is called the dark circle concealer. I believe they have different color correctors and this as well. This is more of a salmon tone and actually on the box that it comes in because it has come in this little box, it says, cancels out the blue of dark circles. Now, if you put this underneath your concealer, if you have really blue or purple tones underneath your eyes, you can kind of go in those corners and cancel out and color correct and really brighten at the same time go on top of it with another concealer, and You will completely eliminate the issue. I love that this texture is a little bit lighter because sometimes with color correctors, when you’re layering and layering and layering, it tends to exaggerate things that you don’t want to exaggerate as far as lines, and it just ends up. Looking a little bit floppy and uneven this one when you apply it with a brush, that’s how I prefer to go in with this and then Pat it in it works beautifully. So this is the shade light pale. It’s again the orange color corrector. I believe they have different shades and the texture on this is really nice. You definitely do need to set this because it has a bit of a wet finish. But aside from that, I think it’s awesome. I’m going to surprise you all right now, I did go out and purchase a bunch of new items and for about a month I have been Putting them to the test, so I picked up a brow pencil, and this was on your guys’s recommendation because I always say: there’s no drugstore alternative to the Anastasio brow Wiz, and this is actually super super close, I think I had mentioned on Twitter.
I was like no, I don’t like it, I don’t like the NYX brow pencil and I was using the wrong one. I was actually grabbing the wrong one from Target. I picked this one up from the actual mix store, so this one is called the micro brow pencil make sure you get the Micro one. It is just like the Anasazi of Beverly Hills. Brow is it. Is this itty-bitty teeny, tiny applicator? It doesn’t look too heavy. You have your spoolie on the other end wonderful product, really impressed with this. I am the shade taupe and I’ve been using this and really loving it. This is a lip ombre duo and this is really cool. This has two sides to it. You have more of a lipstick formula, still pencil on one side and then you have your more precise automatic, real, like actual lip liner pencil on the other side, the texture on this is incredible. It is really creamy, it’s not too high shine. So if you like a creamy lip pencil, you will really enjoy this and they have so many different colors to choose from. This is the shade rags and riches, and I love this so much as definitely like a Mavi kind of 90s vibe. When you use the two shades together, I think they’re beautiful it really wears. Well, it doesn’t bunch up, it doesn’t feather, it doesn’t bleed. It’s a really nice product and I would definitely check this out something kind of different too. I know Tom Ford just came out with a very similar item and I’ve been wanting to put that one to the test, but this is the dupe when I saw a continue, um. Okay, so I do have one liner items that I’m really not a fan of and you might be shopping and you might see this and go oh, that is so cool like it almost looks like an OMG product this right here. I am NOT putting this on my eyes: I’m not testing this out, I’m actually putting it in the donation bin, because I know there will be someone out there that can use it and enjoy it.
But when I’m comparing this to other products that are available and recommending them, this is not it. This is not a winning product. I think it is so hard to hold this in your hand, even though the whole idea of this is it supposed to make putting on your eyeliner easier. I’ve tried this in the past. It looks really interesting and different, and you might go oh yeah worth the money for sure. A liner itself in here is fine. It’s not a bad formula but you’re paying for the handle and the whole big wow factor of this thing and it just when you get really close to the mirror and you’re trying to hold on to this thing. You feel, like you’re kind of far away to me. It was harder to apply my liner, so those are just my thoughts. I think this is a total pass. Moving on. Let’s talk about some good things: the butter glosses. Everybody loves those I have my favorites I’m going to share with you my favorite shades, just because I feel, like everybody already knows, that the butter gloss is from NYX our definite winners, and I just want to talk about these shades that I think are the best. It can be overwhelming when you look at all of the different colors and you’re, like oh, my gosh, which one should I go, for which one would look best and they’re even like a lot of colors that all look the same. But if I were to narrow it down the ones that I reach for over and over and over are this one right here which I’m actually wearing today. This is strawberry cheesecake. It is beautiful, these smell good. They feel good, they’re, nice and opaque they’re, nice and shiny they’re, not too sticky. They are wonderful. I also have sundae mimosa. I don’t like wearing this one on its own. I have to mix it in with other things, but I’m okay with that, and then I also really really love cranberry biscotti. This is just like strawberry cheesecake, but even darker richer, deeper, and I think these are so beautiful. These are five bucks. I cannot get over that price point beautiful, beautiful glosses. They are extremely buttery, just like the name says, definitely look for them. Hunt them down, try them out. You won’t be disappointed. These glasses right here, super affordable glamorous.
Just like the name, it says glam gloss. I am not giving it a thumbs up just because you guys know I’m like I’m Glen life guru, Oh glam gloss. I promise these are $6 you’re, paying a dollar more than utter gloss. They are a similar formula as far as buttery and wonderful. They feel on the lips. Let me just stare at these for a while, because they’re so freakin pretty. If you look up close to this there’s so much micro glitter in here it is beautiful, they’re not over-the-top chunky. They just have a little extra something I’m going to apply one to the center of my lip right now, just to show you. This is the shade the beat goes on and I’m just going to go right in the center. Just to show you, you can definitely make your lips look much powder by using a gloss like this, on top of whatever you are already wearing. The cool thing is with these glasses. They even look fantastic on their own, so they’re, not just for layering they’re, just beautiful glosses, not overly sticky. They don’t kick off a ton of shine like the MAC dazzle, glasses they’re, not as shiny as that they have the same kind of micro glimmer to them. But they’re not as sticky, so you kind of sacrifice a little bit of the shine for it not being so sticky, but they feel so comfortable on the lips and they just give the pout the pouch, and they just give your look a little extra something. So if you’re looking for those extra touches to really up the wow factor or make your lips look more pouty spend six bucks grab yourself a glam gloss. The other shapes that I have our VIP, which is more straight golden, and then I have this darker shade. That is absolutely gorgeous called cool cat. Now this one, you can definitely put on top of deeper matte lipsticks or you could use this on its own. It’s just all-around beautiful, I’m going to surprise everybody by saying that I’m totally over the round lipstick tubes. I believe these are four dollars: they’re really affordable, but my issue with these they’re beautiful they break in two seconds. So if you use any pressure at all, putting this on, it’s going to break in half I used to in the past, go the extra mile and like cut the thing out and put it in a little palette.
But I don’t even really do that anymore. I just find it kind of a pain in the neck and I just don’t like the formula as much as I love, Maybelline or Revlon, and you know for a few bucks. More or waiting till something goes on sale to get a really solid formula from the drugstore. I just think that these are a pass. Another pass for me are any of the liquid lipsticks, specifically the lip lingeries, which i got rid of a long time ago, because I found them to be extremely uneven in pigmentation. Just really weird. Looking it dried my lips out like crazy, I tried about five different shades, so it wasn’t just trying one shade and being like. Oh, I don’t like this because I did go to a party where I was lucky enough to get the full range and I tried them all and I did not like them. I recently saw these in the next-door speaking of the lip lingerie. I didn’t know that they made an eye lingerie. I don’t really know why this caught my attention so much. You know I didn’t like the lip lingeries, but I thought you know for the eyes. It’s something different. It’s a cream eyeshadow. I have never tried a cream eyeshadow from NYX. I’m gonna really go for it. For the lid lingerie, I picked up the shades night, glow white lace, romance whimsy and rose pearl. Now these are beautiful. I was watching these. I love them. I think they’re gorgeous. I had the worst allergic reaction I have had to any eye product. In years I tried out the shade Rose pearl and it actually turned my entire eyed pink. I had to take it off because my eye was itching so bad. I put a cold compress on my eyes. It like kind of bubbled up in the morning where my eyelid was really fat, and I have had to be really careful using makeup this past week, because everything seems to be irritating my eyes. So if you have any type of sensitivity, these are going to cause a problem, they’re beautiful they were long wearing like the one that I wore was very long wearing, and it did go on really nicely. This does have something in here that really just ooh Just did something something I do think is really really beautiful, and it’s odd that I was attracted to even this shade, but I just thought it was something different and I tried it out and I liked it it’s not something that I would reach for every single Day of my life, but if you’re more adventurous with makeup and you’re into the metallic look right now, that’s really popular.
They have this NYX cosmic metals lip cream This is actually so gorgeous This is called the speed of light They have tons of different colors It’s something that I don’t think is talked about a lot, so I wanted to bring it up that this one is a go It’s beautiful, it’s creamy, the texture is nice It has more of a sheen type of a metallic instead of like a harsh in your face Metallic mix also has something called an intense butter gloss, and you can tell the difference by the lid The regular butter glosses are going to have a color that matches the actual product The intense formula has this kind of almost Chrome Looking lid These are really great they’re Just like the butter gloss, but they’re kicked up a notch They are more opaque, they’re a little bit harder to apply because of that So I don’t wear these as much as I do The butter gloss it’s more forgiving that you can kind of just slap on and go, but these if you’re, going for a more shiny kind of vinyl lip on your lip I love the darker ones My favorite shades for the intense butter gloss are cherry Custard cranberry pie, blueberry, tart and chocolate apple, so all of the rich really deep shades That’s what I would go for in this formula If you want the lighter nudey pink shades, then definitely go for the straight original butter gloss I just think it looks better because when you get a little bit too intense and too opaque like this formula, it can kind of look a little bit off, but I do really really love these they’re great huh, deep breaths We made it to the end of this Video leave me comments What are your favorites from NYX?
