Product review time!!!
Today I’m reviewing the NYX products I recently purchased. I bought 4 Jumbo Pencils, 6 Glitter Liners, 1 Studio Liquid Liner and I was given a NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss. I have taken photos of the swatches but I also filmed my first ever video product review for this review 🙂 Let me know what you think of video reviews; do you prefer them to a written review with photos, or do you like to see a combination of both: a video and a written post? I’ve done a combination for this review.
As promised in the video, here are the links to the eBay stores where I bought my products 🙂
Jumbo pencils: I bought a set of three from embraceit1004 on eBay. The fourth purple jumbo pencil I bought from a Perth lady who stocks NYX and many other makeup brands, Bekki’s Boutique! Check it out if you live in Perth 🙂
Glitter Liners: I bought these from Joy’s Cosmetics on eBay.
Liquid Eyeliner: Also from Joy’s Cosmetics eBay store.
Mega Shine Lipgloss: Belinda gave this to me as she felt the colour didn’t suit her.
These Jumbo Pencils have amazing color payoff! I don’t use them as a base by themselves, I always put my eyeshadow base/primer on first (Mac Pain Pot in Painterly) and then a NYX jumbo eye pencil over the top. The reason being that they are very creamy so can crease if they don’t have a proper eye base underneath.
If you have an eyeshadow that’s not very pigmented and you want a more intensified color, these are a must! They are extremely blendable, come in a TON of colours and are super affordable! I think these are a must in every woman’s makeup kit 🙂
What colors do you own, or do you plan on buying any?
I love these glitter liners! The brushes are loaded with glitter so you get a nice even coverage when lining your eyes. The actual liner base is coloured as well so that is what makes these glitters so pigmented. They dry really fast and once dry they don’t budge throughout the day 🙂 I will definitely be getting more colours!
I’m loving the Studio Liquid Liner…it has great staying power, it is super pigmented and the tip is SUPER FINE…I have avoided using liquid liner for a long time but this liner has renewed my interest in them. What I’ve been doing is lining my eyes with my waterproof gel liner first then going over the top with this liner to get more defined line. I’m definitely a fan 😀
Glitter Liner: Depends on where you buy them from… $$4.50 from the NYX website.
Studio Liquid Liner: Depends on where you buy from…$4.50 from the NYX website.
I recommend looking on eBay as you can buy a few for cheaper than just buying them individually.
Rating: 4/5 for both products.
I la la LOVE NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss!! The texture of these glosses are so creamy! They are very pigmented and opaque as you can see from the swatch 🙂 I think my favourite thing about these glosses is that they don’t feel sticky which I love! It gives a glossy finish, and smells like bubble gum haha. You can buy these glosses from the Makeup Geek store…
Price: $5.60 from the Makeup Geek store.
I will be reviewing some Makeup Geek lipsticks next…and coming up very soon I’ll be doing some swatches of more Arbonne Foundations, I recently bought 5 new shades 🙂
