Makeup4all Recommends: NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Ash Brown

Brows are huge  now. Just like back in the 90s most of us were after that “the thinner – the better” look, today,  it seems, that it’s the opposite. While I did indulge in over-plucking then, I will not be overdrawing my brows or getting them micro-bladed now [They grew back , and I am happy with how they look].   Even a few years ago it was hard to find good shades and products for brows, unless it was a pro brand, now even a high street one would suggest a 3-or-more steps eye brow routine.

And while I personally have a lot of different products: pomades, shadows, liners, all sorts of pencils, I prefer a very thin eye brow pencil. That is to use on myself. I love a dark and relatively thick eye liner so thick and dark eye brows, on top of that, would be an overkill for my face.

This is why NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Ash Brown is probably my favourite eye brow product now.  It is

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania Review and Lip Swatches. Rave

Since we are having a Lipstick Week, it is about time to finally write a full review of my lipstick obsession  – NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania.

I’ve picked it up back in the winter and already featured it a lot of times on my Instagram and in my favourites, too.

Long-time readers will know that I am a huge fan of berry and plum vampy lipsticks and I have quite  few but I’ve picked this one up not only because of the shade but also because of the name, gotta love Transylvania.

But, back to the lipstick…

I really, really love it. As the name suggests, it is a

My Contouring: NYX Taupe

Since we are talking about contouring today, I thought I’d show the product that I use on myself…

I did a very detailed review of it, with the photos of it applied, too. You can read and see all the pictures here. And this is just a quick update on how much I love it.

NYX Taupe Blush Review and Face Swatches. Rave

I’ve been wanting NYX  Taupe Blush  for ages, but bought it only this month. Mainly because it was almost always out of stock whenever I’ve planned  to get one, so I almost forgot that I wanted it…

But it is finally mine, and I am so happy about it! Now, that I finally have it, I understand why is it so hyped up, it never leaves my makeup bag!

NYX Taupe Blush Review and Swatches rave

This is definitely the best sculpting product out of those that I have. It is matte and cool-toned so fits my skin  perfectly.

I like the texture, it doesn’t feel too powdery and chalky and creates a natural looking shadow (the photo included). For the price, I can’t think of a better option.

By the way, here is a comparison with two popular &, I would even say cult, bronzers Benefit’s Hoola and Chanel’s Bronze Universel.

NYX Cream Blush in Hot Pink Review, Photos and Swatches

It’s not a secret that I love luxury cream (liquid and gel, too) blushes so for me it’s a great investment. But  some of the readers asked me to review several  affordable blushes.

I’ve already reviewed Max Factor and Maybelline blushes so now it’s time for NYX. I have to say that I’ve got this blush specially for the review.
The shade that I have is called Hot Pink and let me tell you, it is really hot! The colour is very bright and extremely pigmented so if you have a light skin tone  – be very careful with the application. You will need the tiniest amount of this product.

The price in the UK is £9.95 but in the Sates it’s much cheaper and retails for $6.50 only. You get a pretty big blush for your money, here is just the comparison with Max Factor’s one.

It is easy to use this blush, the texture is nice and I like the way it blends; you can get a natural finish if you blend it well. This particular shade looks great on
