I wanted a new setting powder, the translucent kind. I’ve tried different powders for setting; the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder but I find it to heavy to set my concealer under the eyes. I’ve wanted to try the more expensive one you see all around the Internet; Laura Mercier and Nars but I feel like they are too expensive. I also wanted to try different things from NYX because I’ve heard about it for years.
Sooo I went on Asos.com because they are now carrying NYX, yeahh!
I bought the HD powder in translucent. I’ve never seen a consistency like this before! It’s so light weight that it almost disappears, but I have used it for a couple of weeks and it was exactly what I was looking for! It goes on really smooth and it makes my skin look good.
I wanted to try the NYX under eye corrector and I had high hopes for it. I have to say that I find it a little disappoiting. It doesn’t have that much pigment and honestly I would probably get the same result with my regular concealers. I don’t know if it’s this particular shade, I have to choose the ‘fair’ shade and maybe some of the deeper tones have better coverage.
The Rimmel contour Trio it’s not the right fit for my skin tone and undertone. It’s on the warm side which just doesn’t suit me.
The little NYX palette is actually also on the warm side, when will I learn! I get so carried away when I see these beautiful palettes! That’s why I love having this blog because I want to help all of you guys buying the right kind of makeup for your skin tone and undertone.
The NYX brow mascara is acutally a really good product for busy women. You just have to be a little bit careful when applying because it distributes a lot of product.
This purchase is from about a month ago and I have become a lot wiser from this particular purchase. I thought I could be a bronze goddess – but I can’t!
