To-Go Make-Up: Nyx Tutorial and Thx to Amy

Hey guys,

Remember that Contest Time thing? Guess what, I won. And this is my make-up look to thank Amy.

I used the Nyx stuff she send me, which will be listed below, but I forgot to use the foundation sample she gave me. :/ I am sorry. I will try that, too, soon.

What can I say about the things? First the pencil: I love it. It’s really great and doesn’t crease as much as Black Bean. And that’s great!
The palette is also great. I used it for another look and I am impressed. Well, the lighter colors don’t show up as well as they seem to in the palette but the darker colors are quite pigmented and pretty. Loooove.

This lipstick is a bummer. I was so impressed by the eye stuff, but this lipstick is just not great at all. It creases (do you say that for lip products, too?) and it emphasizes all lines and damages on your lips. It’s way too creamy. The color is so great, so I tried to use some concealer as a base for the lipstick. That does destroy the color on the one hand and doesn’t help all the lines on the other hand. I don’t know what to do with it just because of the color. :( Even plotting doesn’t help.
