This year, I’ll be adding some exciting contents here in the blog. For a starter, I’ll be doing a brand spotlight which focusing on a specific brands which I’ve tested, new finds and old favorites that I discovered. Mostly are in the drugstore price point category. I planned on posting them on a monthly basis Brand Spotlight.
So, without further ado, let’s get comfy and chat beauty!
Today I’m sharing 3 brand spotlights for the month of January that gravitates me the most. I’ve definitely been transitioning out of my dark, matte lip phase and into some lighter neutral nude of late. Don’t get me wrong if you think I’m going to stop rocking my red lipsticks either.
I picked these up at my local Pharmaprix (aka Shoppers Drug Mart) when they had their spend your reward points during shopping trip last December.
First thing first, is the
NYX LINGERIE LIQUID LIPSTICK
I like that it’s so easy to apply, thanks to the doe-foot applicator. I find it’s pigmented enough that you usually only need one swipe, although I usually go for two coats to be safe.
This lip color is truly matte, creamy, long wearing, and the color is absolutely beautiful. I love it.
Bedtime Flirt is that girly nude with a little bit of pink. I tend to go for brown/mauve toned lips, but I love this for something more feminine. A perfect MLBB (“my lips but better”) shade for me. It’s almost as if NYX Cosmetics intensified my natural lip color, then bottled it in liquid lipstick form! It sits on my lips pretty nicely once set and it doesn’t seems to transfer at all. I like that it’s long lasting too.
My current favorite shade from the range is Bedtime Flirt since this is the only shade I picked up for now. It’s just such an easy shade to wear. Texture wise it feels whipped/mousse like when applied, drying to a matte finish.
The only downside I think the worst (for me) is that sometimes it feels sticky on my lips. I don’t know if I got the bad batch but I hate that feeling. I wish it wasn’t sticky because I really find the color to be so pretty for an everyday lip.
Overall though, I really like the shades of the lipsticks from this line. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone who hates sticky feelings on the lips.
NYX DEWY FINISH SETTING SPRAY
If you have been reading my blog, you know that I’ve combination of normal to dry skin. I chose the dewy because most of my makeup is semi-matte looking and my skin extra dry in winter. So this is a nice product to have as far as dewy finish setting spray is concerned. You guys know that I like anything that makes my skin looking healthy and fresh.
This is my first purchase of setting spray from a drugstore brand and I was curious to see try it out. I like that it holds up my makeup in place.
The spritzer sprays fine mist. I like to spritz it upwards and let the mist settle on my face. That way, I avoid any droplets that might fall on my face and disturb the makeup. When I was spraying on my face, I can feel immediately a film holding on my face. I felt like I have a thin, transparent and shiny cover on my face. The smell doesn’t bother me that much.
My overall thoughts, if you’re a person who uses a lot of mineral makeup or lot of powder makeup, you can give this a try. If you use liquid or cream foundation, which by itself imparts some dewiness, then you can skip this spray.
NYX LOVE CONTOUR ALL PALETTE
Since publishing my Love Contour All post, I thought it’s fitting to include it here as part of the brand spotlight product to be featured.
