NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer Review

NYX Honey Dew Me Up

NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer is a new primer on the scene that’s pretty different from the average silicone primer.

For me this doesn’t really seem like a primer – it’s more of a serum. It has a very gel-like liquidy texture, and comes in a bottle with a spatula applicator. A pump would have been much better and easier, I think. It does contain the natural antiseptic honey, as well as gold flakes, which are supposed to increase skin radiance and collagen, for smoother skin.

Gimmicky perhaps? Perhaps.

NYX The Suede Shadow Palette Swatches and Review

NYX The Suede Shadow Palette

NYX The Suede Shadow Palette has recently released as limited edition palette that features 8 jewel-inspired eye shadows.

These eye shadows have a shimmery or pearly finish, and they feel super soft and yes, like suede. The palette itself doesn’t feel like the most sturdy thing on earth because the front panel is just flimsy see-through plastic, and the rest is cardboard. So if you were to pack it in a suitcase or something, I would just take care to pack soft things around it and not crush it.

I found the pigmentation and texture of all of these really nice. They’re so silky, smooth and have great payoff. Most of the shades are warm-toned or neutral ones, so it would work for a variety of skin tones.

NYX Macaron Lippie Swatches and Review

NYX Macaron Lippie

Have you heard of the NYX Macaron Lippie collection yet? Well you are about to get intimately acquainted with it.

This collection features twelve new lipstick shades, most are either intense and bright, or soft pastels. They have a satin matte finish. While they are very creamy and apply super easy with no dragging, some of them are not without some issues. They feel fairly moisturizing on the lips and are pretty comfortable to wear. They have a slight scent to them which I can’t place. It’s not strong or annoying though.

NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss Swatches & Review

NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss

I’ve had this post sitting in my draft folder for an eternity so I figured it was time to bust it out!

NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss comes in a slew of shades and it is their best-selling lip gloss. I picked up these two shades quite awhile back because they looked so pretty and flattering.

These glosses have a slightly fake sweet scent and taste to them, but it’s not too bad in my opinion. The two I picked up are Nude Peach and Smokey Look.

NYX Butter Lipstick Swatches and Review

NYX Butter Lipstick

Unless you are living under a rock or don’t care a whit about cosmetics (in which case, why are you reading my blog?) you have probably heard about the NYX Butter Lipsticks by now.

These new lipsticks come in a dazzling array of 22 colors at the moment, surely something for everyone? I was at Ulta the other day and saw them for the first time in person. I promptly directed my step-daughter to fetch me a basket because I knew my hands would be full! I only wound up picking up four because they were lacking in stock at the time, but I am really pleased with the ones I chose.

These lipsticks are full coverage, have a satin finish, feel super creamy and soft, and are non-sticky. They really feel like a supple lip balm on the lips, and are very comfortable and moisturizing.
