My thoughts on this epic black mousse liner by NYX cosmetics

IMG_1946[1]Hello beautiful!🤗 Today’s makeup review is about EYELINERS. Yes, it’s a challenge😥 to put them on but hey, no ones perfect. I don’t use makeup on a regular but on the days that I do, I usually go for a winged liner look. So enough intro, let’s move on the review. Introducing. . .

Nyx Epic Black Mousse Liner

An innovative, fluffy, lightweight formula with the boldest, blackest black pigment you’ve ever seen. Glides on like butter and dries to a matte, waterproof finish. This liner is epic.
  • Lightweight mousse liner packed with pigment
  • Lines and defines eyes but can also be used as a smudger or base for smokey eyes
  • Glides on smoothly and precisely then dries down to a long–wearing, waterproof finish.

How to use:

  • Dip a clean liner brush into product.
  • Line top lash line as thick or thin as desired.
  • For a smokey eye, apply to bottom lash line and smudge.

According to Ulta.

IMG_1999[1]I use a precise brush to create my eyeliner. I noticed that the formulation dries up quickly, so in applying this it tends to crumble. I just dip in my brush then wipe off the excess in the pot an proceed to line my upper eyelids.

I can go as thick or as thin. It tends to smudge if not dried up. So I wait a little longer before curling my lashes. But the color pay off is great. It sets to a matte black color.  One downside though, the formulation gets a little dried up once exposed to air. So it’s best that you keep the lid on it at all times to preserve the gel liner.

Pros;

  • Glides on great, easy to use (new)
  • Matte black color
  • Stays put

Cons:

  • Smudges
  • Dries quickly if the pot is exposed to air
  • Crumbles if applied on too much
  • Tugs on skin
  • Needs a brush
  • Formula in the pot can dry over time

Get or Forget: City Color Dark Spot Corrector

IMG_1949[1]Hello beauties! Let’s talk about color correctors. This specific one is from city color. Spot concealers are great for hiding hyperpigmentations like blemishes or dark under eye circles. I got mine in my Ipsy Glambag and just wanted to show you guys if it works.The corrector has a peachy tone as it looks on the pan. But once I swatched it, it had a light base that blended almost to nothing. I tested it out by itself to check if it would color correct some discoloration on my under eyes.

I came up with some steps to simplify how I used the product.

  1. Start with a clean face
  2. After applying the corrector, I immediately set it with powder. I chose a loose foundation powder for this step so it would add a little coverage since I did not use any foundation.
  3. Brush off the excess.
  4. Under eyes are concealed.

This is a super close up of the spot corrector under my eyes. I noticed that it did nothing at all to conceal my dark under eye. One good thing about this is that it blended well to my skin tone, so well that it did not conceal. I say forget this product. If I were to rate this, I would give it a 1/5. The peachy to salmon tone way ideal to hide hyper pigmentation, so when topped off with a foundation of choice, It diminishes or color corrects. But this did nothing at all.

Have you tried an inexpensive color corrector? Let me know in the comments below. Sharing is caring so join the conversation.
