I love this liner. To start with I need very thin line on my lid and sometimes I'll go for a very thin cats eye. So I need a liner with felt tip. I tried pencil liners, gel liners other pen liners and I could not achieve what I wanted. But this one is so good and easy to apply I can draw lines and cats eyes as a pro. It takes couple of second to dry, once dry, this stay for long time. I have kept this for 10 hrs and it did fade negligible. I love this. This pen liner is suitable for newbie and every one who isn't dexterous as the make up artist who are able to draw lines with any thing. Seriously I am jealous of them. So as long as you are not a pro you can happily get the same effect with Nyx epic liner. Also it long last.
Easy to use
I have two shades ( keeping an eye on other shades also, will buy when I get a good discount) from this range, exotic and seduction. Seduction is a terracotta nude that flatters my wheatish/olive skin tone ( for reference, I am N37 is MAC studio foundation). It's my go-to lipstick. Exotic is a reddish tone lipstick. But don't be afraid, it's not stand out RED, it's more like a brick red. Again suitable for wheatish skin tone. These lipsticks are so comfortable to wear. They don't dry my lips and are extremely comfortable to wear. They have a mousse-like texture and once dry they stay for 6-7 hrs and can survive light meals. Re application is not also an issue. I would choose them over the high-end lipsticks I have used. They are valued for money even if they are not in discount and usually Nyx gives discount regularly. If you buy during the sale then they are a steal.
Wide range of shades
I have the goldlight strobe cream which is suitable for the wheatish skin color. This cream instantly moisturizes your skin. Even though I have combination skin type, I can use this cream without getting any acne or pimple. This cream can be used in multiple ways. 1. Just this cream in the overall face to provide a subtle glow. 2. The high points like cheekbone as a highlighter 3. Mixed with the foundation to get a dewy finish ( my favorite way). 4. As a primer for make up Not sure about its skincare benefit but its a good base for your make up. However not sure whether this is good for the oily skin beauties, as this cream does make the skin oily. But since there are no glitter particles, but some shiny dust it can be used for regular office wear. If I use it on my overall face without makeup, it does impart a healthy glow but makes my skin oily as well ( I have combination to oily skin). It's good as a subtle highlighter, but the lasting power is not much especially for a person like me who has a bad habit of touching the face. But this work wonders with my Nyx total control drop foundation. It gives a very nice healthy dewy finish. I just mix a little bit of this cream with 3 to 4 drops of the foundation and apply all over my face using hands and am good to go. Also a little goes a long way. So even though it's expensive, it lasts a long time ( however, I don't use this every day).
Makes your skin glow
Hydrates your skin
Can make your skin oily
Low lasting power
I have used an entire bottle of this oil. The oil is good if your sole purpose of using this product is to moisturize. I would apply this oil post toner and before my foundation. This would make my skin smooth and soft for 7/8 hrs. I have combination skin and I could use this product during summer and winter alike. However, I mostly wear it to work where I would be sitting under chilling AC through out. Not sure whether this will work for oily skin or humid weather. This oil is very lightweight and quickly get absorbed and you won't feel dry for a long time. I didn't get any irritation or pimple after using this. This is a good product in that way. However, at this price, you'll get other oils/serum that would be more beneficial to the skin. This product is a little expensive for what it does.
Apart from moisturizing the skin doesn't do anything else
I have been using Bodyshop lip and cheek stain for 5 years or more. I love this. This works as a blush which gives the most natural-looking finish. It complements my wheatish skin tone. This is so natural that even if you apply excess, people will think that your cheeks have become pinkish due to sunburn or excess cold, but they'll not understand that you have applied make up. Perfect for workspace. This is oil-based, so dry and oily beauties can both use this. This is good for lips as well. Gives your lips a natural-looking color. If your lips have become excessively dark, just apply a little bit and your lip color will be well hidden. The only problem is this doesn't stay put, especially on your lips for long, now that happens with all your bullet lipsticks as well. This is my go-to product for a simple no-makeup look. I sometimes use this as an eye shadow. I have not use the lip and cheek stain from The Balm or The Benefit cosmetics or the other Korean Brands so I won't be able to provide a comparison, but the thing is, I am so happy with this product, I don't feel like trying out other brands. Totally recommend this product.
