Instantly erase the appearance of dark spots, age spots, and hyperpigmentation with Revlon’s Youth FX Fill + Blur Foundation. Powered by innovative age corrective technology with micro-fillers and optical diffusers, this formula works to fill and blur lines and wrinkles for immediate results.
I bought two shades because the first shade I bought as too light. I have the shades 200 Nude and 220 Natural Beige. See more swatches blended out below at the bottom of the post.
This is a very interesting formula and so far I really like it. It is a very thick medium-full coverage foundation. It glides on to the face really nicely and almost has a primer feel to it. It definitely helps blur fine lines and pores and really helps smooth everything out. I like to apply it with my fingers and then blend it out with my Beauty Blender. It looks nice and hydrating after it’s applied. I have dry skin so I really like it. If you have oily skin I don’t think you will like it.
It lasts most of the day but it did start to breakup a little bit around my nose.
I will say the only downfall is the price and the shade selection. I feel like they need more shades and the price should be around $12 at the most, especially since it is drugstore.
But so far I think this is a great foundation for the drugstore.
Revlon’s Youth FX Fill + Blur Concealer dramatically transforms the appearance of crow’s feet. Powered by innovative age corrective technology with micro-fillers and optical diffusers, this formula works to fill and blur lines and wrinkles for immediate results.
I had high hopes for this concealer because I really loved the foundation. This concealer isn’t bad by any means but it wasn’t the best drugstore concealer I have ever used. I was expecting this to be really high coverage and great for dry skin. I would say this is more of a light to medium coverage. It doesn’t cover everything and the consistency is very lightweight. It dries really quickly so you need to blend fast.
I would suggest using a color corrector under this if you have discoloration since it’s not full coverage. It looks nice throughout the day and wears well. I think oily and dry skin could both wear it.
I do feel like it’s too pricey for the drugstore so if you can get a coupon then definitely use it.

Nothing can keep us from sculpting – Love Contours All! This uh-mazing NYX Cosmetics palette has literally everything you need for complete definition. It includes pigmented eyeshadows in edgy, neutral tones, blendable highlighting and contouring shades, and beautiful brow powders. Yes! You can create a whole look using one sleek palette. Hold on, this heart just skipped a beat.
This palette, like most NYX palettes, is amazing!!! If you love any of the NYX most recent palettes like the Avant Pop Palette, you will love this one. This palette is really good!! It has everything you will ever need for many different looks. You can use all of these shades on your eyes and in many different ways, they are so versatile. I love all of the shades in this palette!
All of these shades are so pigmented, you can see by the swatches. They also work so well with your brush and blend really nicely. The matte shades in these palettes are my favorite. The shimmer shades are nice too but I just love matte eyeshadows. Do you see how black that shade is?? YEAH!
The contour and highlight shades are so amazing as well! They are so pigmented and the perfect shades.
The only downfall is they are a little powdery and there’s some fallout, but I can live with that.
This palette is totally worth it and if you can get it from Ulta with the buy 1 get 1 50% off, it is even more worth it!
From polka dots to pointy pumps, nothing compares to the classics. NYX Cosmetics’ personal fave? Ever so creamy lip color, of course! Take yourself back to the signature lip that started it all with their Pin-Up Pout Lipstick. Inspired by the best of vintage beauty, this retro rouge covers lips in extra plush, richly pigmented, and absolutely undeniable color. This throwback lipstick also offers beautiful coverage in an array of swoon-worthy shades.
I really love NYX lipsticks and these are a great formula as well. They just released them this year in 24 amazing shades. I will say that some of the shades are very similar, especially some of the nudes and red-brown colors.
Overall the formula is awesome!! They are creamy and pigmented! Some are better than others, I will let you know my favorites down below. There was one in particular that was patchy and you can see it in the swatch – the dark purple shade True Vixen. Other than that they really glide on the lips nicely and have a ton of pigment. These don’t dry my lips out and they are not matte. I would say they are kind of satin and some have more sheen than others.
My favorite colors are: Opinionated, Darling, Violet Femme, and Bombshell.
These eyeliners are amazing!! I honestly have nothing bad to say about them! I dare say they might be one of the best eyeliners from the drugstore!! These eyeliners compare to the Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eyeliners! No joke! These actually might be better.
Every shade is really creamy and SO pigmented! They glide on the eyes so nicely and easily. Once you put them on they take maybe 30 seconds to set so you will have time to blend them out if you need to. Once they are set they don’t budge! These don’t smudge or run or anything! The formula is so amazing on all of these colors! You won’t find another drugstore liner out there like these.
The shade selection is so beautiful too! I really hope NYX comes out with more shades. I feel like these might be a hit this year.
Need a filter for that selfie? #LookNoFurther. NYX Cosmetics’ Perfect Filter Shadow Palettes feature ten vibrant shades of their amazing eyeshadow. Available in striking color combinations, each collectable Perfect Filter Shadow Palette is inspired by a different photo filtering effect.
I will say that these palettes are just as good as the reviews mentioned above! NYX really knows what they are doing when it comes to eyeshadow formula. These shadows are SO creamy and pigmented. They do have some fall out like you would get with a LORAC eyeshadow but I don’t care. I can deal with a little bit of fallout because they are so amazing! These blend so nicely especially the matte shades. The matte shades in these palettes are my favorite. The shimmer shades are nice too but I just love matte eyeshadows.
I think all of these palettes are totally worth it but I will say my favorite is the Gloomy Days Perfect Filter Shadow Palette. NYX has two more that I want to buy but for right now Ulta only carries these three.
Light up your features with NYX Cosmetics’ Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder. Available in glowing shades, these silky powders blend like a dream for a fresh-faced look. Their breathtaking formula’s light-catching pearls deliver a luminous finish that looks different from every angle. Brush this illuminating wonder along the highest points of the face – such as the cheekbones, bridge of the nose and Cupid’s bow.
I was so excited when I saw these!!! I feel like NYX always kills it when they bring their new spring products out. The duo-chrome/metallic trend is in and these are so fitting!
These come in 5 shades:
I will start off by saying that I LOVE these highlighters! For the drugstore these are really innovative, beautiful and affordable.
All of these shades are gorgeous! They are really pigmented and shine so pretty on the face! I personally think you can use these for eyeshadows as well. Some of the shades aren’t as wearable on the face but if you top your lips with them or use them as eyeshadows they really look amazing!
Two of these are also a dupe from Kat Von D’s newest palette, Alchemist. Below you can see the comparisons. I actually think I might like the NYX shades better.
These are totally worth the $8 and if you can get them when Ulta does the buy 1 get 1 1/2 off, they are really worth it then!
In these swatches, I did them on my hand because you can really see the duo-chrome effect better than the swatches below on my forearm.
