Paula J.'s Beauty Product Reviews
I want a NYX store in Argentina! Or at least ship here!!!
Love them love them love them.
I bough like 6 different shades and I love all of them. It has good coverange, nice shine (on those shinny ones), great price. It's super creamy so it's like a dream when you put them on your lips!
It stays longer than other brands I use to wear (like Avon or MaryKay) and it doesn't dry your lips.
I love it! Great price, product and presentation.
It has full coverage and it doesn't get super shiny or sticky!
It's the best gloss I ever bought and I surely want to buy other shades!
Does the work for everyday use
This primer it's not as smooth or creamy than others. It looks like a cream pressed shadow, but it's easy to apply and blend with a finger.
Problem: it's pink. In my skin it goes really nice and it help me fade some freckles I have in my eyelid, but not all the girls have the same skintone, so that's a problem to this product.
The other thing it's that is cheap so you can use it everyday with no guilt.
I have oily skin and I have to say that this primer doesn't crease for 10 hours. In my case I notice creasing about 11 hours after my makeup was done.
It's not the best but i recommend it for everyday work-school use.
Not too good
I try this eyelid primer because it was the cheaper I could find (I bought this one, Jordana and a Too faced one). And I have to tell you that it was disappointing.
The presentation it's great because you can put little amount and spread it before it drys (something that goes really fast I have to say) but it doesn't make the pressed shadows to grab more and it creases a few hours later if you have luck.
I leave you a photo just for you to see how the different primers set the same shadow from the Coastal Scents 88 original palette, using the same brush with the same amount of press shadow. Just see it for yourself (the first line is without primer)
I have oily skin and I totally recommend it
I bought this product because it was the cheaper one (it was this or smashbox). First the pump only gave my air so I opened it and the product looks like Vaseline, so I give it a few more tries and now it come out just nicely. It's a very dense product and it's a little harder to make it go thought the tube of the pump the first time.
It feels really incredible in my skin when I put it with my fingers. It's like velvet! not oily texture at all. Not a single spot of shine! I use half a pump because its super effective, smooth and it spreads out a lot to apply on the entire face.
The packaging it's not the best for this kind of silicone cream texture product. I know that when the pump don't throw more product I will have to open it and get the remains out with a bush o something like that. But for the price I totally will buy it again. It help me a lot with my daily make up and I totally recommend it.
I used this product about a year a go and it was one of the best. it's like a cream, not that soft but incredible moisturizer. I used it always before my lipstick. It was great to blend dark colors and to give a finish glossy look. I felt like it filled my lips better than using only lipstick.
I bought several shades of this product and it's amazing how the colors are bright with less product. It's super smooth, but I notice that I can't use it as a "primer" to set better my pressed powder shadows. I have oily skin and I notice that if I use this jumbo pencils with no primer at all it tend to crease a lot in my eyelids.
