The base color is definitely orange, but a softer, pink-leaning orange. (Similar to Six Ice Creams Each, actually. I didn’t have that in my mind when i chose to publish these two entries in the same week, but…there ya go.) The pink shimmer is slightly visible when I apply it dry, and much more visible foiled. The texture is a bit…crumbly, no matter how I apply it. The coverage is fairly solid, though.

Almost a metallic maroon, in some lights. This works as a non-bright red shade for eyeliner. It’s dark enough to define, covers solidly enough to look good. This is the color of maroon-ish red that I love to use, because I get red eyeshadow without running the risk of looking like I’m off a crying jag. The gold is sparse enough that it’s barely visible except at extremely close range.

NYX Cosmetics’ Faux Whites eyeliner in Linen

I expected this to be one of my favorite colors out of this collection…or at least, one that I reached for most often. (I do use it a lot, but I use the others much more than I thought I would!) It’s a matte finish, and the color applies smoothly for me and stays on the waterline for most of the day. (Almost no color stays on my waterline all day.) I like how this is close to...

A combination of four of the 2016 COTM shades: Erotic Friend Fiction, 3spoopy5me, Don’t Let Your Dreams Be Dreams!, and Huge Sixcess. The pearl finish is pretty strong, and reduces the base-color intensity quite a bit. It’s still definitely “coniferous green”, but it’s not quite as dark. The red and blue shimmer is somewhat visible, but not overpowering.

This is a multichrome…kind of. The colorshifts are about on par with any of the pink-and-gold “multichrome” polishes that have been released in the past few years. This one adds a green-brown shade into the shift, and it’s a little more pronounced, but it still isn’t as dramatic a colorchange as the bottle art indicates that it might be. It also required 3 coats to see as much of the shift as I did - not the more...

NYX Cosmetics’ Faux Whites Eyeliner collection

NYX Cosmetics’ Faux Whites Eyeliner collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

When I saw that NYX had two new eyeliner collections coming out, I made a snap judgement: I'd like almost all of the Faux Blacks, and like two or maybe three of the Faux Whites. I miscalled my reaction to the Faux Whites collection! I like more of these shades than I thought I would. (I even like both of the greens, which isn't something I thought I'd ever say.)
