Fashion & Style Police Reviews NYX Blotting Paper & Makeup Brush Cleaner

Summer is here and I am loving the long sunny days. A new season usually means new beauty products. It is also a great time to get some stunning photos taken. I found some great Photobox Discount Codes and Vouchers and I am eager to get some personalised Photo Packs in time for Father’s Day this Sunday. Click here for more information.

The warm weather also means I need my blotting paper more than ever!  So I have quickly placed an order for NYX Fresh Face Blotting Paper, after running out of my old pack some days ago. I also decided to grab the NYX Makeup Brush Cleaner since my makeup brushes were in need of a deep clean.

Product Review: NYX Setting Spray & Elizabeth Arden Flawless Start Primer

NYX Setting Spray Image

Happy Easter peeps. I hope you are all enjoying the holidays. I have another product review post for you my dears. This time, it is all about NYX Dewy Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray and Elizabeth Arden Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer.

NYX Dewy Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray

After exhausting my MAC setting spray, I decided to try a different brand and NYX came to mind. I have recently fallen in love with NYX, I reviewed an NYX lipstick some weeks ago, and I can testify to how great the lipstick was, so naturally, I was eager to try out another product from the brand.

Here is what the NYX has to say about this setting spray –

Demand perfection! For that fresh dewy glow that lasts, the NYX Makeup Setting Spray – Dewy is lightweight and comfortable while working hard to make sure your makeup stays put.

Here are my thoughts on the NYX Dewy Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray:

PROS

  1. This setting spray is quite affordable at £7 for a 60ml bottle.
  2. You can easily grab one of these in your local Boots online or in store.
  3. I love the packaging. It is a lot more practical than the MAC bottle I used previously.
  4. My makeup looked refreshed after using this setting spray, and it stayed on all day.
  5. It is great for all skin types.

CONS

None.

I recommend this setting spray to all. It does the job beautifully.

 

Elizabeth Arden Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer

I ran out of my Instablur some weeks ago, and I felt like I needed a primer change. I have used The Body Shop Instablur primer for years now, and I decided to try out Elizabeth Arden Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer after reading about it in this month’s Cosmopolitan.

Here is what Elizabeth Arden has to say about this product:

Prime and perfect skin with a vital, multi-tasking step to make the most of your makeup. The smoothing triple blurring complex minimizes the look of pores, fine lines and wrinkles, blurring imperfections to give skin an instantly retouched look. Time-release skin-balancing technology helps control shine and maintain moisture for an impeccably flawless appearance. Formulated for all skin types and tones, Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer improves the longevity and performance of foundation to help keep makeup looking fresh and color-true all day.

 

PROS

  1. This primer left my skin makeup-ready. My entire makeup, starting with my foundation, went on my face nicely.
  2. My makeup stayed on all day, and I only needed to apply a fingertip amount of the primer.
  3. It is great for all skin types, and tones. It is colourless, and almost fragrance-free
  4. I had a matte flawless finish all day.
  5. It is easily accessible in stores and online at Elizabeth Arden, House of Fraser, Debenhams, Boots, and many other stores.

Elizabeth Arden Flawless Start Primer

 

CONS

  1. The price, it costs £28 for a 30ml tube, so it is on the high side, but it is worth every penny.

I recommend the Elizabeth Arden Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer to every woman. This is easily the best primer I have ever used in my life.

Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts?

 

 

 

Product Review/Swatches – NYX & Barry M Lipsticks

Hey peeps. I finally decided to try some drug store lipsticks. I know I have talked about doing this for sometime now, so I popped into my local Boots, and had a good look around, then finally settled on a NYX Matte Indie Flick Lipstick and a Barry M Lip Stain Paint in Eternal Coral.

NYX Matte Indie Flick Lipstick

This is my first time trying a NYX lipstick.  I have heard quite  a lot about the NYX makeup range, and seen a lot of YouTube reviews and blog pots about the brand, so I knew I had to try it for myself. I must confess the price put me off at a first, it goes for £6.50, and I am use to spending £15 and over for 1 lipstick, so I thought this won’t be good enough, but I am happy to announce that I was pleasantly surprised.

Here is what NYX has to say about their lipsticks:

NYX Matte Lipsticks are highly pigmented richly formulated and long-wearing. The formula glides on smoothly and stays put with a non-drying matte finish.

Here are my thoughts:

PROS

  1. I love the colour a lot. It is perfect for summer.
  2. It is so matte, but doesn’t dry out my lips like other matte lipsticks.
  3. It is a great price for the quality of lipstick.
  4. It is long-lasting, even without a lip primer. It stayed on for hours.
  5. I love the cute packaging, with the see through plastic. I think it is so cute.

CONS

None.

I LOVE this lipstick. I think I am sold on anything NYX now, let’s see.

 

Barry M Lip Paint Eternal Coral

This is my first time trying a Barry M lipstick. I have heard and seen a lot of Barry M makeup in stores, but like my previous issue with NYX, the price was my issue. I struggled to believe a £4.49 Barry M lipstick would be as good as a £15.50 MAC lipstick, so I never bothered with them until now.

Here is what Barry M has to say about their lipsticks:

New Stain Paint provides a rich velvet matte finish for long, long, long-lasting colour. Available in three amazingly long-lasting lip staining shades, discover Barry M’s new LipStains in their shining new silver packs – Absolute Burgundy, Eternal Coral and Infinite Pink.

Here are my thoughts:

PROS

  1. I love the Eternal Coral shade. It is so different from all my other lipsticks.
  2. It is super affordable.
  3. It moisturises the lips perfectly.

Barry M Eternal Coral Stain

 

CONS

  1. It has more of a butter finish than matte finish.
  2. I am a matte kind of girl, and this lipstick is not matte enough for me.
  3. The colour is a little too light for my liking. I had to apply and reapply quite a few times, to get the colour to pop out.

Overall, I will recommend both lipsticks. For the price you pay, they are really worth it, especially the NYX lipstick. I will definitely be buying that again and shopping more from the brand.
