Beauty Product Reviews

I am very pleased

"Cruella" is described as "Scarlet Red" and I love my reds! I got this in Sephora's birthday gift this year. Compared to the iconic "Ruby Woo" from MAC Cosmetics, this is slightly more vivid, as to me it appears to have a very subtle orange hint. Personally, I prefer my reds to be a bit deeper! But after wearing it a few times I have really started to LOVE it. It’s red, it’s bright and it’s playful! The finish is definitely matte but it’s easy-to-apply and feels weightless on the lips. It has not bleed or creased on me and it definitely does not make me conscious about wearing a red lipstick. I have had at least 9-10 hours of wear that survived a very cumbersome Indian Chai tea drink in a moving car. It faded after I ate a big homemade chicken roll but it did leave a beautiful stain. It does feel a little drying after 6-7 hrs of wear. But overall, I am very pleased.

Just "OK"!!

This is such a popular product. It performed just "ok" for me though. The bristles are of stiff plastic which is not really my cup of tea. Staying power was good! The consistency is also ok! But I am NOT really "wow"ed by it. It made my lashes very crunchy and extremely separated. I have two of these from different value sets and I will definitely use it up. But I am not going to buy a regular size again. I guess, it did not give me the "They are real" effect that I was hoping for!


I dont see the shade "Flush" here. Anyway these blushes are definitely worth the hype. They are insanely pigmented and really really long wearing. I have had around 7-8 hours of solid wear out of them. 'Flush' is a vibrant pinkish berry shade which looks utterly scary on the pan, but transforms to a very natural color on the skin. I have medium olive skin tone and I just need the lightest swipe to get the color show up beautifully on my cheeks. I lovvve tarte :)

Awesome pigmentation at affordable price, but creases on me.

This review is particularly on their Jumbo Eye Pencil Collection "Center Stage" (Colors included Electric Blue, Sparkle Nude, Iced Mocha, Yogurt, their cult favourite Milk and Black Bean.) The pencils are crazy crazy pigmented, very creamy and can be used as eyeliner and eye shadows. Great base for other shadows. I always apply a thin layer yet I can't wear it for more than 5 minutes without noticing some kind of CREASING. I have tried it with Mac paint pot, Urban Decay Primer Potion and ELF eye primer, set with eyeshadow but there is always some amount of creasing almost immediately.

Pros: Super affordable. More so because it’s in a kit! Good range of color; includes basics with a bright shade. NYX has an amazing color range for these pencils.

Cons: Not automatic, so sharpening is necessary. Creases on me even after preventative measures.

Not really for me

I have recently started using NYX lipliners. They are really worth the money. I really hoped this would work as an excellent nude lip liner for me, but I guess my lips are too plum/pink in color and when I put this on I look as if I am sick. Sad!! No idea if I through this away or just resell it!! I do use it as a lipcolor sometimes with my other nude lipsticks, but it never really serves the purpose of lip liner!! :(

Good color payoff at affordable cost

Everybody loves NYX round lipsticks. For me its mainly about the price and color payoff. I bought this when I first started to venture out into lip colors! I was looking for an everyday wear color, but unfortunately... For me it looks like a color in between subtle mauve and bright pink. On my Olive/tan skintone, the bright pink part comes out more :) I use it mostly on the days when I don't want to wear anything else on my face, but still look bright. This color gets it done. And yeah, I love the creaminess of it..keeps my lips hydrated for atleast few hrs.

Hot Creamy Red

I wanted a beautiful, bright red lipstick! And Electra is a wonderful option specially when you consider the price. {This is before I took the plunge to buy Ruby woo :)} Yes, Its a shocking red, but it looks lovely on me :) (I am medium complexioned). Its matte yet super creamy. I never would have imagined myself wearing red on my lips, but I am liking it. It stays for a long-long time even on its own, but fill in ur lips with Lipliner before applying and you don't need any touch-up. My only complaint is that I really had to take good care not to end up with "Lipstick teeth" -may be because of it's super creaminess! But otherwise Great value, wonderful Product!

Fun wearable color

I did not thought this bright pink color will look good on my olive kinda tan skintone. But to my surprise, I look good and i think it brightens up my whole face. It is sheer, so u may need to apply more than once to build up the color to your liking. And I just love the tingling minty feel to my refreshing! Product wise I wud have given this a 4.5 rating, bt because I was happily surprised with the way it looked on me I had to give 5 :)
