I'm hopefully gonna be ordering some more NYX stuff soon so I want to what stuff you girlies have tried and would recommend!

I already know I'll get at least one of the jumbo pencils since I love the one I have, and maybe some more of the Ultra Pearl Manias since you can't beat 99 cents for such a great product! I have a few other things in mind too but want to hear what other people like from NYX.

I've checked everywhere around here and the only NYX I've found so far were a display of 3 trios at Rite Aid in the town my schools in, so I got them and they were on sale for 3 bucks each!

You should get some of the Black Label lipstick.I think they have a very nice texture and i did notice you mentioned you liked the "Tribute to Marilyn" one.
Their nail polish and jumbo pencils are great too.

PostSubject: NYX Ultra Pearl Mania: Orange Pearl   Sun May 25, 2008 11:53 pm

I have to say, I'm very impressed by these shadows. They're...rad. And here's why:

- very pigmented. a little goes a LONG way.
- very fine. these shadows go on smoothly and easily.
- easy to blend and manipulate.

The
colour I chose is a lot brighter than the bottle let on. The bottle
itself is more like a vial, kind of like MACs pigment vials, but just a
tad shorter. I do have a thing against the packaging - a lot of pigment
will get stuck in the cap, and if you're me, and you tap it out on a
piece of paper to pour back into the vial...don't be clumsy. Everything
will match your eyes if you are. Just saying. Seriously, ask my
blanket, he'll tell you so.

These work best with a base. Since
you don't have to use a lot - just a light dusting - you have to use
something underneath to keep the wee bit of shadow from creasing on
you. I love UDPP, but TFSI is even better [and has better packaging].

Overall,
these shadows are great. And careful where you buy them. At the hair
store [I mean, ethnic beauty supply store], NYX products shouldn't be
over .99 - $1.99. I went to the mall, and these pigments were $2.99 and
the glosses were $4.99! I nearly died - especially since my hair store
doesn't have the glosses - just the fab lipsticks and lip liners
[review in a bit]. I'd rather be a cheap ass and spend my .99, thank
you very much.

Have any of you tried them? Tell me your stories here. :]

ooh i ahve several and i love love love them! i just tapped them out into a stack of screw top jars, and kept the vials just in case i was desperate and wanted to scrape off the inside ahaha.

basically i agree with everything you just said.

I find them to be even finer than MAC pigments, which surprised me. The cool shades [ice pink and baby blue] don't really appeal to me, but the neutrals and stuff look nice. Not sure if I'll buy them, since I'm about to buy a lot of eyeshadows this summer [and throw out a bunch in the same process]. They're def worth it; and the price is great, so we'll see. :]

I have 12 of them and I love them all. Now I just need the other 12! Thier other loose shadows are awesome too, the Chrome shadows, they have pretty much the same texture and quality and all.

PostSubject: NYX Glitter and Brushes   Sun Jun 01, 2008 7:34 am

Has anyone tried any of their glitter and/or brushes? I'm looking for new brushes since mine are crap, but I don't feel like paying $243895723846723649123 for them, and theirs look pretty decent from what I could tell. Oh, and I was wondering about their glitters since I just like sparkly things :]

Thanks a bunch!

Their glitters are not worth the money. Don't buy into it.

I think I'll merge this topic with mine...

Aww man. I was really hopeful that their glitters would be AMAZING since they've got a bunch of good colors :[

Are they wicked chunky or something? Or just not as bright as they seem on the website?

Well, what glitters do you mean? I was referring to the gel glitters. Loose glitters are always good - as long as they're eye-safe.

Ohhh I was talking about the loose glitters, haha. Yeah I'm under the impression that basically all gel glitters are crap X] The site doesn't say anything about them not being eye-safe so I think I can go crazy, haha.

I think they should be okay, then. Be careful in your application, and have fun.
