Ultra Pearl Mania NYX Eyeshadow and Round Lipstick

Oh, yeah...the most talked about brad, nyx is in my makeup bag :)) I must say they r way too cheap for the quality! They r great! I apply it with a thin elf brush and i have no problems! The most important tip is to be careful at the amount u pick up from the tiny container so u don't get all sparkly-face!
The eyeshadow goes so smoothly and gently and lasts and lastss...I even received compliments.
I have Nude Pearl, Pearl and Lilac Pearl.
I'm very attracted to Grass and Lime, too but i dont know when i'll order these.
I also wanted the famous Round lipstick of nyx and from what i saw online, Thalia and B52 looked like they'd suited me...but...not really. B52 is pretty strong pigmented, Thalia is also, in fact...but the tones are strong...not so natural.
They are creamy and stay long on, easy to apply, the shape is tool-perfect. What i like most, is the fact that they are hypoallergenic, no scent!
Well, i can say i now know what's the rave about and i'm happy i discovered them and i had the inspiration to order them. I will try to find a nice shade of Round lipstick for me and keep 'painting' myself for a fresh summer-y look.

These shades look awesome in photos. But, not on me.

HorrorStay 24h

I'm so sad...and disappointed...and hopeless...
I CAN"T BELIEVE that THIS is the new superstay! I got it from someone who went to France and got the Gemey Maybelline version and i don't think it has anything to do with the fact that it sucks bigtime :(
I got 10 Ivory cuz the lightest shades from superstay 16h were more medium shades than light. :( This shade is nice, like i initially noticed. Looks good on my fair skin and looks natural...the colour...the texture...donno what to say about it. I hate it overall, i would never buy it again and i don't recommend it if u want all those promises. Yeah, it does not stay on not even 6 hours on combination skin although u fix it with staying powder. I'm such a kid when it comes to unsuccessful makeup purchases...I really need a good foundation that covers medium to full and is long lasting wholely, not partially, like Max Factor Lasting Performance and other... Even the Visible Lift with serum inside is more long staying than this crappy version of mny superstay and it doesnt mean to. All i can say i look awful even freshly made up cuz it doesnt cover even close to the other superstay and after 4,5 hours i look horrible! I hate it and i hope i can mix it with other foundation and make it go for evening looks or any other short term events. I am sorry to let everybody down but i cant imagine what can change over time and agree with other 'users' of the new Superstay 24h stretch formula. I've been really a big lover of Maybelline makeup products...not anymore.
