NYX cream blush - Sleek True Color Lipstick - NYX Slim Eye pencil

 I chose the shade Natural, which i thought it would be a more peachy pink. I see it as a soft pink, very natural and pretty. The texture is amazing, i use it on colorstay foundation and it applies smoothly and it can be build up. I also wore it as a lip color and i loved it! :)
 I think it's a great product!
 It gives glow and it doesn't become matte or powdery, exactly what i wished for!
 I got 2 Sleek True color lipsticks in colors Barely There and Coral Reef. Barely there is orangey on me and Coral Reef is way to bright for me. I like their texture, their finish and their wear experience, but the colors are tricky. I was tempted to buy Papaya punch, but i'm glad i didn't. I was looking for great colors to make me look bright and fresh, but Coral Reef is overly pigmented for my fair skin and dark hair. But if i were redhead, it would've made a great choice, i.m.o!
 Here they are swatched. I took pictures of me wearing them on my lips, but i hated how they looked and didn't post them(as usual). :P
 And my last item was NYX Slim Eye Pencil in shade Taupe. It's a light brown that i can't wear on my waterline, like i wished, it's now as pigmented to be noticeable. It's weird. I will sharpen it and try again or wear it on my upper lash line, sometimes. It's also an eyebrow pencil, which i find weird, i didn't try it on my eyebrows because of the color - i use a darker one since i dyed my hair black, again.

Hope it was helpful,
Have a great weekend!

Sexy curves mascara, yves rocher concealer and seventeen lipstick

 I just loved the idea of a compact concealer since i like heavier coverage under my eyes, where my most freckles are! The price was reasonable, too and i couldn't wait to try it out!
 I chose the shade 200 - clair, meaning it's the second after the lightest.
 It has yellow undertone as you can see in the photo above.
The consistency is hard-compact and once applied it streaks, especially if much is needed, since it doesn't cover very well, medium i'd say. I don't like it and i won't buy it or even use it again! :(

I liked the rimmel sexy curves mascara and i went to repurchase it, but they only had the intense black version. It it pretty much the same, i can't notice a deeper black or anything. What i like about it is the way it defines the lashes and the brush is easy to use.

 The third thing i bought and i don't like is the Seventeen lipstick in color 200. I was looking for a satin finish peachy color for everyday use. I hate the smell of this, i think it contains too much wax and the only nice thing i can mention is the color.
 I regret buying this...that's why i placed an order on some sleek true color lipsticks  in colors Barely there and Coral reef, that i can't wait to try!

 Here's a swatch in natural day light. Looks pretty, doesn't it?

 Below, on the left is Barry M in shade 147.

 Here it is on my lips in day light, near the window. (Seventeen 200 lipstick) I doesn't even apply smooth and even! Chhhh!
Be back soon with reviews on Sleek true color lipsticks and Slim eye pencil in Taupe and Nyx Cream Blush in shade 'Natural', next weekend or so! ;)
Have a great week!
