Why you need a skinny brow pencil… NYX Micro Brow

NYX is no more in Penang!!!! WHY NYX WHY???????? Please open a store here! PLEASE!!!!!!!!! Well, it’s very simply because Sephora Malaysia, which was previously the only place to get NYX products, parted ways with the brand. If you didn’t already know, I am severely averse to online shopping. So this is just annoying since one of my favourite concealers is the NYX HD Studio Photogenic Concealer (review here). But today, I bring you the NYX Micro Brow Pencil. Alluding to the title, as much as I believe you need a skinny brow pencil, is this the one? Do keep reading to find out…

The product.
This box is jam packed with descriptions!
Ingredient list.
More information.
Shade name and code.
The pencil.
Information galore! I was genuinely surprised that there are NYX products made in Korea.
Wow, they even managed to get their website printed!
The twist up part. Yes, I’ve run out of the product. I had to take it apart for a swatch.
Spoolie on the other end.
Oh how much I worked for this swatch.


Description:
A retractable brow pencil that comes in 8 shades and in 0.003oz. or 0.09g product (the 8 shade full range would depend on where you’re purchasing them from; here in Malaysia the NYX stores carry 5 shades).

Ingredients:
POLYETHYLENE, C12-15 ALKYL ETHYLHEXANOATE, HYDROGENATED COCO-GLYCERIDES, OZOKERITE, POLYGLYCERYL-2 TRIISOSTEARATE, C20-40 ALCOHOLS, EUPHORBIA CERIFERA (CANDELILLA) WAX/CANDELILLA CERA/CIRE DE CANDELILLA, ZINC STEARATE, MICROCRYSTALLINE WAX/CERA MICROCRISTALLINA/CIRE MICROCRYSTALLINE, DIMETHICONE, SORBITAN TRISTEARATE, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, GLYCERYL CAPRYLATE. MAY CONTAIN / PEUT CONTENIR (+/-): MICA, TITANIUM DIOXIDE (CI 77891), IRON OXIDES (CI 77491, 77492, 77499), FERRIC AMMONIUM FERROCYANIDE (CI 77510). 

Price: HIGHLY depends on where you’re purchasing it from. The official store price is MYR 48 (as of the date of this published post). I’ve seen it priced at 50 and 53 as well (online). When I initially purchased it I got it for MYR 40.50 (10% discount).

Where to buy:
NYX official stores (IOI City Mall Putrajaya, Sunway Pyramid, MidValley Megamall, SOGO KL, Fahrenheit 88, Suria KLCC) and online at Hermo, Shoppee and Lazada (although they’re, more often than not, sold out).

Attaching a YouTube video of mine using the product. Oh yeah! This is a new video! 🙂


Pros:
> Easy to use because of the thin brow pencil design.
> Precision and ability to create brow-like strokes due to tiny product tip.
> No need to sharpen.
> Long wearing.
> Colour perfect for warm, dark tanned skin tones (and with so many shades, anyone is sure to find a match).
> Blends well.
> Not too pigmented which is a pro for a brow pencil because it is more forgiving. A mess-up wouldn’t as difficult to fix as using a highly pigmented product. For perspective, imagine using a gel eyeliner for your brows.

Cons
> It is a measly amount of product for MYR 48 (or even 40.50 for that matter)!!!
> The twisting mechanism is very flimsy and it’s not just mine. Even the testers and a friend’s product does that.
> Although long lasting I have other products that out-perform this (click here to see which one).

Rating: 7.6/10
Although it performs very well and is kind of foolproof to use, the price per amount of product and the fact that I have cheaper alternative that out-performs this, made me give it the lower rating.


So yes, you NEED a microbrow or a brow pencil with a tiny tip but IMHO this NYX is NOT really the best out there.

Trying out gel eyeliner. Do I recommend it? Is it beginner friendly?

HAPPY NEW YEAR GUYS!!!
I’ve always seen gorgeous videos of beauty gurus using gel eyeliner to create such perfect winged eyeliners that I had to try it myself. So when I looked for the most accessible, best eyeliner that was also cost effective, this particular one kept being suggested to me by various sources. It is the Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Liner.
By the way, it’s my first gel eyeliner review.

The outer packaging.
Description on the back.
The product.
Yes! It comes with a brush! And it’s pretty good too!
Mine’s pretty done… 😛
Description underneath the tub. Plus the shade name.
Oh getting this swatch was a task!

Description:
It is a gel eyeliner that comes in 2.5 grams or 0.08 oz. It comes with a synthetic bristle brush and comes in two shades (in Malaysia), 01 Black and 02 Brown.

Ingredients:
TRIMETHYLSILOXYSILICATE, CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, ISODODECANE, CYCLOHEXASILOXANE, CERESIN, CAPRYLYL METHICONE, SILICA SILYLATE, LAUROYL LYSINE, DISTEARDIMONIUM HECTORITE, PROPYLENE CARBONATE, HYDROXYAPATITE, TRIETHOXYCAPRYLYLSILANE, CI 77499 / IRON OXIDES, CI 77007 / ULTRAMARINES, CI 77266 / BLACK 2

Price:
MYR 43.90 (wait for a discount, SERIOUSLY!)

Where to buy:
Major drugstores/pharmacies across the countries.

I actually used it in one of my Halloween looks. Used it for the dark hollows around the eyes.

Pros:
> Very black and opaque.
> Glides easily and applies smoothly.
> Stays put. I didn’t experience smudging (there is a caveat; see “Cons”)
> Longlasting.
> Yes, to resolve the title question, it is beginner friendly because you can work slowly, tracing each step as you go since the dry down time on a gel eyeliner is longer than a liquid eyeliner. Very forgiving.

Cons:
> Even after drying down the product stays a tiny bit tacky that annoys me to no end! I almost always have to use a black eyeshadow to set it.
> Not particularly comfortable to wear as it felt like I used glue on my lids.
> Although it doesn’t smudge, I would notice patches of the liner missing as it wears down. And I found that peculiar.
> Although longlasting, the aforementioned patches missing presents an issue.
> I ALWAYS place the lid back on PROPERLY but it still dried out faster rather than later.


Rating: 5.5/10
Although beginner friendly, a gel pen would be a better option than this particular product. This doesn’t mean I think pen eyeliner is objectively better than gel eyeliner. Personal preference trumps all. But no, I didn’t like this product although I got my money’s worth.

Essence Volume Stylist 18Hr Curl & Hold Mascara Review

I’m back after a month’s hiatus… and… jumping right in!
Yes, mascara is probably the single most used makeup product in my collection. Which is perhaps why I have reviewed mascaras more than any other makeup products. In addition to that Essence is a brand I’ve reviewed over and over again simply because it’s perhaps the cheapest makeup brand available at Malaysian drugstores. This is the Essence Volume Stylist 18Hr Curl & Hold Mascara.

The product.
A little description.
As you will see later this is the shape of the brush.
Details.
The bristles.

Description: Mascara that comes in 12 ml or 0.4 oz. of product. Although it claims to hold curls that last up to 18 hours, it doesn’t claim to be waterproof.

Ingredients:
AQUA (WATER), CERA ALBA (BEESWAX), PARAFFIN, GLYCERYL STEARATE, STYRENE/ACRYLATES/AMMONIUM METHACRYLATE COPOLYMER, ORYZA SATIVA (RICE) CERA, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, PALMITIC ACID, ACACIA SENEGAL GUM , POLYBUTENE, COPERNICIA CERIFERA (CARNAUBA) WAX, AMINOMETHYL PROPANOL, STEARIC ACID, PHENOXYETHANOL, VP/EICOSENE COPOLYMER, TOCOPHEROL, DIMETHICONE, POLYESTER-4, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, SODIUM LAURETH-12 SULFATE, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, TETRASODIUM EDTA, POTASSIUM SORBATE, SODIUM DEHYDROACETATE, CI 77499 (IRON OXIDES)


Price: MYR 15.90

Where to buy: Watsons (if you can find it, certain department stores).

Wear test.

Bare lashes.
One coat.
Two coats.

Pros:
> Very good volume.
> Very good lengthening.
> Curls hold up very well (can’t attest to the 18 hours claim but as long as I’ve worn it, it doesn’t loose the curl).
> Good lash separation.
> No smudging.
> As big and fat the wand it, it isn’t really problematic for getting even the shortest lashes because there are varying length of bristles.

> Affordable! God, SO AFFORDABLE!!!

Cons:
> Tiny bit fallout.

> In spite of varying bristle length, working with the brush can be a tiny bit problematic.

Note: It definitely isn’t waterproof! Do with this information what you will. 🙂

8.9/10
Great mascara! Great price! I LOVE IT!

NYX HD Studio Photogenic Concealer Review (CW 07)

I love NYX Cosmetics!!! It’s too bad that Sephora Malaysia doesn’t carry the brand anymore and since it was only sold in Sephora in Penang, I don’t have access to the brand unless I travel to KL… That’s supposedly easily remedied; online shopping. Unfortunately I hate online shopping. I digress…

The product.
Shade name and code.
Ingredients list.
Comes with a doe-foot applicator.
Swatch. Ignore the blurred out swatch. That was for another review. It looks darker than my skin tone here but on my face it blends in pretty well. Especially with the powder I typically use to set it with…

Description: Concealer that comes in 0.11 oz. or 3 grams of product.

Ingredients:
WATER/AQUA/EAU, TRIMETHYLSILOXYPHENYL DIMETHICONE, TRIMETHYLSILOXYSILICATE, GLYCERIN, SILICA, ISONONYL ISONONANOATE, SORBITAN OLIVATE, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, COCOS NUCIFERA (COCONUT) OIL, ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF EXTRACT, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, TRIETHOXYCAPRYLYLSILANE, EUPHORBIA CERIFERA (CANDELILLA) WAX/CANDELILLA CERA/CIRE DE CANDELILLA, XANTHAN GUM, ALUMINA, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, PHENOXYETHANOL. MAY CONTAIN / PEUT CONTENIR (+/-): TITANIUM DIOXIDE (CI 77891), IRON OXIDES (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), MANGANESE VIOLET (CI 77742), ULTRAMARINES (CI 77007), CHROMIUM HYDROXIDE GREEN (CI 77289), CHROMIUM OXIDE GREENS (CI 77288), YELLOW 5 LAKE (CI 19140)

Where to buy: Limited stores available (check out their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/nyxcosmeticsmalaysia/) and online (Shopee and Hermo are two options).


Price: HIGHLY depends on where you’re buying. I would HIGHLY recommend you purchase from the NYX Stores in Kuala Lumpur because they carry 12 shades (not quite enough but I guess it’ll have to work) and it’s priced at MYR 26.
Shopee (MYR 29), Lazada (MYR 20.80); both online stores only carry 3 or 4 light shades. I purchased mine from Sephora (redundant at the moment but it cost me MYR 20.80; original price MYR 28).

Wear test…

Freshly applied. Again, ignore the blurred half, that’s for another review… 🙂
After about 8 hours of wear. Wasn’t particularly sweating or anything.

Pros:
> Applies smoothly.
> It doesn’t crease (this does depend a tiny bit on the setting powder used).
> Pretty good shade range (there’s 20 shades in total;
just not here in Malaysia, we have 12, AT MOST, here in Malaysia)
> Pigmented and opaque.
> No caking even when layered.
> As evident, very long lasting!

Cons:
> No more easily available here in Malaysia (and the online options are SO limited).
> The product separates a little when in the tube so I have to vigorously shake it up every time I want to use it (hoping this is just my first tube).
> You get only 3 grams of product for the price so I’d consider it not entirely affordable (WOW, I’m such a cheapo!).

Rating: 9.2/10
I love this concealer but I do wish it was more accessible here in Malaysia. I love it so much that I got backup when it was on sale.

L.A. Girl HD Pro.Conceal Concealer Review (Fawn)

Wow, with the new background comes some new firsts! The previous review was my first time reviewing Zoeva and now it is my first time reviewing a concealer! The product I own was gifted to me by a very close friend who also happens to be a fellow blogger, Lakshmi of Big is Compatible (link here).

The product.
Ingredients and shade name.
Product from the US of A and made in China!
It has a brush tip! That’s cool! It does end up looking a little icky if not cleaned.
Swatch… Ignore the blurred patch (it’s for a different review).

Description: Concealer in a squeeze tube with a brush tip and comes in 0.28 oz or 8 grams.

Ingredients:
WATER (AQUA), CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, BEESWAX (CERA ALBA), STEARYL DIMETHICONE, ISODODECANE, CETYL ETHYLHEXANOATE, MICROCRYSTALLINE WAX (CERA MICROCRISTALLINA), CETYL PEG/PPG-10/1 DIMETHICONE, GLYCERYL LAURATE, POLYGLYCERYL-4 OLEATE, MICA, DISTEARDIMONIUM HECTORITE, PHENOXYETHANOL, METHYLPARABEN, ETHYLPARABEN, BUTYLPARABEN, PROPYLPARABEN, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, ASCORBYL PALMITATE, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, CHAMOMILLA RECUTITA EXTRACT, PROPYLENE CARBONATE, SODIUM HYALURONATE.

Price: MYR 30 (from L.A. Girl Malaysia official website)

Wear test…

Freshly applied. Again, ignore the blurred half, that’s for another review… 🙂
After about 7 hours of wear. Wasn’t particularly sweating or anything. I’ve tried it on a hot and humid day and I was sweating and it performed just as well..

Pros:
> Applies smoothly.
> It doesn’t crease (this does depend a tiny bit on the setting powder used).
> Pigmented and opaque.
> I am partial to the packaging, because like toothpaste I can squeeze it to completion.
> WIDE shade range (VERY dark skin friendly).
> No caking even when layered.
> As evident, very long lasting!

Cons:
> The tip can get a tiny bit messy.
> Not easily available here in Malaysia.
> Price is steep considering it is just USD 5 in the US of A.

Rating: 9.3/10
I love this concealer. If you can get it at any less than MYR 30, then do grab it!

Zoeva 227 Luxe Soft Definer/ Blender Brush Review

Founded by Zoe Boikou, Zoeva as a brand began with only a line of makeup brushes which has now expanded to eyeshadows, lipsticks, and even blushers and highlighters. This is a review of a single brush, namely the 227 blending brush.

The brush. (I LOVE MY NEW BACKGROUND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
The cardboard inside has some information on the brush.
Excellent packaging. Definitely made me feel like I purchased something high end.
The handle with the brand and product code engraved.
Bristles up close.
It is slightly flatten with bristles that are frayed out to allow good eyeshadow blending.


Description:
Makeup brush intended for eyeshadow blending.
Bristles: Mix of natural (goat hair) and synthetic
Ferrule: Brass
Handle: Wood (lacquered six times)

Price: MYR 59

Where to buy: Sephora outlets nationwide and online at sephora.my

Pros:
> The brush feels and works like a high-end makeup brush.
> Extremely sturdy and durable.
> Blends out eyeshadow beautifully!
> Having had it for a couple of years, traveled with it and also used and washed it so many times, it looks almost as good as new as evident from the pictures.
> Soft bristles.

Cons:
> Did initially shed a little but when it stopped shedding, it stopped for good.
> Price isn’t affordable but the brush is definitely worth the price.
> Natural bristles require more care than synthetic brushes.

Rating: 9.1/10
I LOVE THIS BRUSH! I actually wanted to test out Zoeva as a brand and so I purchased the brush that I had only one of in my collection at that time (an eyeshadow blending brush). Definitely worth the money spent! I am actually eyeing a classic set. If you’re a makeup artist or simply just love makeup, it is definitely worth investing in it!

Rimmel Stay Matte Long Lasting Press Powder Review

Second Rimmel review! I loved the previous product (Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal – link here) and let’s see if I love this too. Today, I review the often talked about Rimmel Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder in the shade 010 Warm Honey.

The product. Very simple packaging.

Product inside.

Description on the back.

A closer look.

Swatch. About half a shade lighter than my skin tone.

Description: Pressed powder that comes in 14 grams or 0.49 oz of product. Here in Malaysia there are about 6 shades which is pretty good because I believe 010 is one of the darkest! Sure enough, 010 is difficult to find because it seems to be sold out.

Ingredients:

TALC, MICA, MAGNESIUM STEARATE, POLYETHYLENE, PETROLATUM, PHENYL TRIMETHICONE, DIMETHICONE, POLYBUTENE, ISOSTEARYL NEOPENTANOATE, ETHYLHEXYL METHOXYCINNAMATE, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, METHYLPARABEN, COCOS NUCIFERA (COCONUT) OIL, PARAFFINUM LIQUIDUM/MINERAL OIL/HUILE MINERALE, PROPYLPARABEN, ZINC OXIDE, PARFUM/FRAGRANCE, ALOE BARBADENSIS, POLYSORBATE 20, BHT, BUTYLPHENYL METHYLPROPIONAL, BENZYL SALICYLATE, CITRONELLOL, HEXYL CINNAMAL, HYDROXYISOHEXYL 3-CYCLOHEXENE CARBOXALDEHYDE, LINALOOL, BUTYLPARABEN. [MAY CONTAIN/PEUT CONTENIR/+/-: TITANIUM DIOXIDE (CI 77891), IRON OXIDES (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), ULTRAMARINES (CI 77007).

Where to buy: Selected Guardian and Watsons nationwide.

Price: MYR 14.90 (at this price, waiting for a promotion isn’t even necessary!)

 

Wear test.

Freshly applied. I used this only under the eyes because it is too light to use all over the face (yes, picture reused from my Maybelline Fit Me foundation review, link here).

After about six hours of wear. The under eyes have stayed almost perfect!

Pros:

Smooth velvety powder.

Easy to apply and blend.

Lives up to the name! It stays matte all day!

CHEAP!

Does not look heavy or cakey with proper application.

Lasts very well on the skin!

Comfortable to wear.

 

Cons:

Can settle into lines if over applied.

Darker shades of this powder would be perfection. It actually does come in deeper shades but this is the deepest one available here in Malaysia.

Packaging is very flimsy.

No powder puff or sponge.

Can cause flashback if over applied.

 

Rating: 9.1/10

In spite of the Cons, I LOVE this powder and am giving it a high rating. By the way, I already have a backup, enough said.

Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser Review

Oh, another Maybelline review. What can I say, I love a lot of products from the brand. It is perhaps the first makeup brand people know here in Malaysia and today I review the Baby Skin primer.

The product. Comes in an outer plastic box.

Ingredients list and some instruction on the side of the box.

Ingredients list.

The tube.

The product. Clear silicone-y primer.

Blended out. It does fill up the pores and blur the skin as seen here.

Description: A dimethicone and silicone based primer that comes in 22ml product.

Ingredients: DIMETHICONE, DIMETHICONE CROSSPOLYMER, STEARYL HEPTANOATE, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, SILICA SILYLATE, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRAISOSTEARATE, PRUNUS CERASUS EXTRACT / BITTER CHERRY EXTRACT [+/- MAY CONTAIN / PEUT CONTENIR CI 73360 / RED 30 CI 77492 / IRON OXIDES]

Where to buy: Major pharmacies/drugstores nationwide.

Price: MYR 28.21

 

Wear test.

No primer.

With primer.

After about 7 hours.

I used it with the Maybelline Fit Me foundation, keeping with the brand. No primer side.

Primed side.

It isn’t so apparent in the picture but the side of the primer did break apart while the unprimed side stayed intact. What is obvious from the picture is the primed side is way oilier than the unprimed side.

 

Pros:

It does fill up pores.

It does blur skin texture.

Generous amount of product for the price.

 

Cons:

As evident, it didn’t hold up even with my not so oily skin.

Foundation breaks apart and patches of skin shows through when facial oils come through.

It moves too much underneath the foundation and so the foundation does not sit well.

The scent is nauseating to me.

Feels rather uncomfortable on the skin to me.

 

Rating: 6/10

One expression; ‘meh’. Such a ‘meh’ product. Had it for over a year and it is not even a quarter used.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk Review

NYX has products I absolutely love not just because they’re the single most affordable brand in Sephora but because they truly have some amazing products. The two products I’ve previously reviewed here, I absolutely love!

Previous NYX product reviews links:

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream (04, London) Review

NYX Powder Blush (PB01, Mocha) Review

This review is on the NYX Jumbo Pencil in 604, Milk.

The product.

Description and ingredients.

Swatch.

It isn’t an eyeliner that typically sets down and does not move. It stays creamy unless set with powder. That’s not a bad thing. It makes for a great base to press corresponding eyeshadow on.

Description: A jumbo pencil that comes in a variety of shades and in 5grams of product.

Ingredients: ISONONYL ISONONANOATE, OCTYLDODECANOL, ETHYLHEXYL PALMITATE, ISOSTEARYL ISOSTEARATE, EUPHORBIA CERIFERA (CANDELILLA) WAX / EUPHORBIA CERIFERA CERA / CIRE DE CANDELILLA, CERESIN, MICROCRYSTALLINE WAX / CERA MICROCRISTALLINA / CIRE MICROCRISTALLINE, COPERNICIA CERIFERA (CARNAUBA) WAX / COPERNICIA CERIFERA CERA / CIRE DE CARNAUBA, POLYETHYLENE, BEESWAX / CERA ALBA / CIRE D’ABEILLE, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, BHA, BUTYLPARABEN, ISOBUTYLPARABEN, ISOPROPYLPARABEN. MAY CONTAIN (+/-): MICA, TITANIUM DIOXIDE (CI 77891), IRON OXIDES (CI 77491, 77492, 77499), CARMINE (CI 75470), CHROMIUM OXIDE GREEN (CI 77288), ULTRAMARINES (CI 77007), FERRIC FERROCYANIDE (CI 77510), BLUE 1 LAKE (CI 42090), YELLOW 5 LAKE (CI 19140).

Where to buy: Sephora stores nationwide and in the NYX Malaysia professional stores (you can find locations to the stores here). There are also various online options.

Price: MYR 26

 

I used the product to create my 2016 Halloween look.

 

Pros:

Very pigmented!

Very opaque!

Blends easily.

Creamy and glides on very easily!

Pretty affordable considering it’s sold in Sephora.

 

Cons:

Sharpening it is a PAIN!

 

Note: These don’t set like a typical eyeliner but I do believe they weren’t meant to. They would make a great eyeshadow base. And to set it in place would be just to use a white eyeshadow.

 

Rating: 8.6/10

I love this particular eye pencil but this particular colour isn’t exactly something practical. Perhaps a different colour would serve as a wonderful cream eyeshadow.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in 005 Nude

This is my first Rimmel product review and I am excited! After Essence, there’s a competitor in town with dirt cheap prices! Started in 1834, it also is one of the oldest makeup brands still available today. A London based company whose products are made in the European Union, I am surprised they have managed to keep their prices so low. AND, one of their foundation line runs two shades deeper than mine!!! TWO SHADES DARKER THAN MINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AT MALAYSIAN DRUGSTORES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today’s product, I got from Guardian on sale for MYR 5!!! 5 bucks! So anyway, here’s the review!

The pencil. Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal.

Some description. Product is made in France.

Description: Waterproof kohl eyeliner that comes in a variety of shades and in 1.3 grams or 0.04 oz of product. This one in particular is in the shade 005 Nude.

Swatch (I don’t really have an eye makeup look to show but this liner is amazing!).

Pros:

Extremely creamy and glides on smoothly.

CHEAP!

Pigmented.

Very long lasting!

Very good colour selection.

 

Cons:

This shade in particular is not completely opaque so a couple of swipes are needed.

Sharpening! Ugh!

 

Rating: 8.3/10

I am kinda blown away that I got this for only MYR 5! Do give it a go!
