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.


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


  • 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

NYX Professional Makeup’s Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray

IMG_1950[1]Lock in your makeup with this amazing setting spray! This is what I definitely need to remove the “cakeyness” in my foundation routine. And this blog is talking about NYX Professional Makeup’s Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray. So what is a setting spray? Well Setting sprays  (also finishing spray, makeup setting spray, finish spray, or makeup spray) is a cosmetic product designed to preserve applied make-up long periods of time. Usually sold in small spray bottles, setting spray is applied by spritzing mist over the face, keeping the make-up application moist for several hours.

NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray

This product claims to increase the longevity of your makeup on your face.This long lasting formula grants a matte finish. I purchased mine in at target for $8.

It comes in a acrylic bottle with a spray pump that creates a mist to evenly distribute the product on the face.It weights 2.02 oz. The mist of this product does not leave uneven specs of liquid, it releases the product finely that it gently covers the face with every mist. I use two to three pumps for each side of my face atleast  six to eight inches away from  my face. You want to give your entire face an even misting, so don’t spray it closely. Then I let the spray dry on my face naturally. I have oily to combination skin so I wish this product would keep my oils at bay.



  • Application of mist is light.
  • No scent.
  • Reduced cakey’ness’ or powder effect of foundation.
  • Dewy finish.
  • Makes my makeup stay put.
  • Lightweight, I don’t notice it on my face.
  • Keep my makeup on for hours.


  • Does not keep face matte
  • Creates more shine on my T-zone through out the day

I would recommend this for normal to dry skin types, not for oily. At first it would give a matte finish, but I noticed as soon as it dried up, it gave out a dewy finish. As for the claims for a matte finish,it did not control my oily face especially on my T-zone. I think this would be perfect for removing the “cakeyness” of my makeup but not for the matte properties. Overall I would give this setting spray a 7/10. It reduced the cakey look of my foundation which is a plus and keeps my makeup on. It gets the job done but it didn’t keep my face “matte” which was the main claim of the product itself.

Did this setting spray work for you?Let me know in the comment below. Thanks for stopping by!
