Have you tried these NYX butter glosses? Let me know what your favorite lip gloss brand and shade is in the comments!

FOTD pics

Here’s a few FOTD pics from the past week or so. My eyes look a little washed out, but I promise it looked nicer in person!
Most pics were using my everyday favorites from my makeup bag.
I usually use Missha M perfect cover BB cream #21 as a primer, with Revlon Colorstay in buff for foundation.
MAC Prolongwear concealer is my current fave for covering acne scarring. I use a bit of MAC MSF in my t zone. For bronzer and contour I almost always use Benefit Hoola. It’s my go to shade, as it looks good on my fair skin in any season. For blush I have been loving a peach combo (for some reason I can’t wear many peach toned blushes) with NYC cheek glow blush in Sutton Place Peach topped with MAC mineralize blush in Amber Glow.

 

To highlight I use Benefit high beam on my cheekbones, down the center of my nose, cupid’s bow and a touch above my brow. I also have been liking Hard Candy tiki baked bronzer. It’s very pretty, but way too light for a bronzer. I’ve heard its a dupe for LORAC’s spotlight.

 

Under my eyes I have been using NYX HD concealer in Light after I tap on a little bit of pixi beauty peach correcting concealer. I always set it with a light dusting of powder to prevent creasing.

My favorite eye primer is Painterly paint pot from MAC. My eyelids tend to be dry and this is very emollient, and it never creases my shadows. I almost always use some combination of eyeshadows from my Urban Decay Naked 1 and 2 palettes. I love Naked, Buck or Tease in my crease. I think in one of the pics I used purple tones from the palettes. Foxy is a great blending out color for my skin tone. I don’t really care for the velvet texture, but it works!

 

I’m obsessed with Rimmel’s scandaleyes kohl liners. I wear the dark brown on my upper lash line (and to tightline) almost everyday. The Nude is lovely on the waterline for brightening your eyes. I have contacts, and fairly sensitive eyes and never have irritation with these liners.

 

For my brows I have been using the ELF brow duo in medium. It’s not my HG shade (which I have yet to find) but it’s good. I love the wax side, because I have these obnoxious browlicks (yeah, cowlick in my brows) and this tames them a bit.

 

My lashes are a little weird right now. I’m loosing so much hair (on my head and lashes) from my Lyme Disease, so I have some bald spots. (Ummmm seriously, why cant I loose the obnoxious random chin hairs?!) I like Cover Girl’s Clump crusher mascara, and I sometimes layer it with L’Oreal telescopic water proof. That holds a great curl like nothing I’ve tried (I have stick straight lashes) but it is a PAIN IN THE ASS to get off.

Lips are easy! I almost always grab one of my NYX butter glosses. They are the best lip product EVER! Seriously, if you haven’t tried them, you need to! I like them more than any other gloss/butter/lipstick/stain out there.

What are your go-to make up choices for everyday? I’d love to hear some favorite products, and see pics!

In the eye pic I had used UD YDK with MAC Fix+ on my lid, tease in the crease, Toated and hustle in the outer v. I have MAC Prunella eye kohl on.

NYX Butter gloss Review and Swatches

Have you seen these?? I know it seems like everyone is jumping in on the lip butter bandwagon.

But, these, you NEED. I love NYX lipglosses in general, however these are better than any of the lipglosses/butters I have tried lately! The texture is great, it is super smooth and feels like a lip balm. They aren’t sticky, though I don’t mind sticky glosses! The pigmentation is about average for a lip butter product. They aren’t necessarily long lasting, but I think that’s normal with this type of product. They have a faint sweet scent. Not cherry like the other NYX glosses, but vanilla-ish. It fades almost immediately.

Want to see pics? The colors I have are Creme Brulee, Merengue, Tiramisu and Vanilla Cream Pie(pictured from top to bottom in that order.) The colors are a touch brighter in this pic than in person.
