NYX Love Contours All Palette | Review & Swatches



NYX Love Contours All Palette 

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!

NYX is coming out with so many items for the 2017 Spring launch! I have reviewed so many products but in particular more lipsticks 🙂 on the new NYX Pin-Up Pout Lipsticks – click here to read my review and swatches.

Let me start off by saying the colors are gorgeous!! I love all of the shades they created. There’s a nice variety of neutrals, reds, pinks, purples and some vibrant colors. The packing is so beautiful as well. I love the way they added the lipstick color to the tube so you know what shade it is. The lipstick tubes look very similar to the NYX Whipped Lip and Cheek Soufflé.

The lipstick shape is very unique and makes it easy to apply especially in the hard to get areas and curves of the lips. I really love that aspect of the lipstick!

Now as far as the formula goes, I am not the biggest fan of matte lipsticks in genera and I knew that going into it. Some of the colors are a little patchy and kind of dry, you will be able to see from my swatches. BUT there are some colors that are so amazing and glide on the lips much easier. My favorites shades are:In Bloom-ington, Garden State-ment, Roosevelt Nightcap, Te Amo del Amo, and Brooklyn. Those shades are so beautiful and amazing!!

These are definitely on the dry side so if you don’t mind that then you will love them. These are definitely a true matte.and pigmented but you need to build them up a bit. They do transfer but they stay on the lips longer than a normal lipstick. If you love more of a creamy matte check out my review of the NYX Velvet Matte Lipsticks – click here.

Like I said I love most of the shades but there were a few patchy and dry one. If you love matte lips and matte lipsticks then you definitely need to get some of these.





NYX COSMETICS Total Control Drop Foundation | Review & Swatches!!


From sheer to full, your ideal coverage is just drops away with NYX Cosmetics’ Total Control Drop Foundation! Fine-tune this velvety, matte foundation with the included dropper: simply adjust the number of drops until you create the look you’re feelin’ today. Want more coverage? Add more drops! Buff expertly using the Total Control Drop Foundation Brush for a seriously smooth finish.



I bought mine in Natural and True Beige since those were the two that seemed to be not too dark and not too light. The only problem is they are SO yellow! As you can see from my swatches they definitely pull a yellow tone, even the Natural shade. That was kinda of disappointing. I think the Natural shade should have been more neutral. I didn’t see many cool tones or neutral tones, so you might have to mix it with another foundation if you are cool or neutral.

I have very dry skin and for me I feel like these just didn’t work. It attached to my dry patches and  made my skin look cakey and didn’t wear throughout the day like I would have expected. I will say that it is medium to full coverage and covers everything nicely. This does settle into fine lines and pores.

I think that if you have oily skin this might work better for you but it just didn’t do it for me. I far prefer the Cover FX Custom Cover Drops for my skin.

Let me know if you have tried them and if you like them.

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.





NYX Faux Whites & Faux Black Eyeliner Review and Swatches (ALL 16 shades)!!



I just picked up all 16 shades from!! When I saw these amazing colors I knew I needed them in my life! Especially since they are from the drugstore and only $7.99.


Faux Whites Shades:

  • Linen
  • Lavender Blush
  • Mint Cream
  • Vanilla
  • Baby Powder
  • Seashell
  • Honeydew
  • White Smoke

Faux Blacks Shades:

  • Obsidian
  • Black Hole
  • Midnight
  • Onyx
  • Burnt Sienna
  • Black Olive
  • Oxblood
  • Blackberry



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.

NYX Perfect Filter Shadow Palettes | Review & Swatches!



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.

Cost: $20

Where to buy:


You guys – these palettes are amazing!!! I know $20 can be steep for a drugstore palette but these compare to some high-end palettes. Throughout the past year I have raved about so many NYX eyeshadow palettes, such as: NYX Cosmic Style Lookset, NYX Ultimate Shadow Palettes and the NYX Full Throttle Eyeshadow Palettes.

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.

Marine Layer Perfect Filter Shadow Palette

NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powders (ALL 5) | Review & Swatches!!



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:

  • Twilight Tint
  • Snow Rose
  • Lavender Steel
  • Synthetica
  • Crushed Bloom


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.
