NYX Conceal Correct Contour Palette

NYX recently released a whole bunch of new products for their Spring 2015 collection and I somehow just keep buying more and more. My latest purchase is the NYX 3C Conceal Correct Contour Palette. This palette retails for about $12 and comes in three shades, light,  medium and dark. I ordered the light palette.

Each palette comes with 6 shades customized for a range of skin tones and is designed to conceal and correct spots and discoloration as well as contour and highlight. Depending on your each persons skin tone, different people may find these shades work for them in different ways.

NYX Conceal Correct Contour Palette

OVERALL REVIEW: 6.75

Packaging:  I think it’s sleek and attractive and I like that it shows the contents inside. No problems here. 7/10

Longevity: Lasted well throughout the day on most of my face but creased almost immediately under my eyes. 6/10

Application: Takes some time to blend, especially the darkest shade, and I felt like the darkest shade kept looking patchy. 7/10

Texture:  A thick cream reminiscent of grease paint. A bit of an unusual texture for everyday makeup. 7/10

I’ve used this palette on three different occasions now because I wanted to give it a fair chance before reviewing it but I’m still on the fence about it. Is it a terrible product? Definitely not. Do I love it? Eh, not really. Could I see how someone else might really like it? Sure.

Face Routine Video!

Hey guys! It’s been way too long since I last made a video but I really want to get back on it and start making them regularly. I posted on Instagram several days ago asking for suggestions for videos and many people said they wanted to see my face routine so I delivered!

So here it is! This is the method that I use virtually every single day for my face makeup and contains several products that I’ve featured on my blog such as the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit, Make Up For Ever HD Foundation, MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, MAC Warm Soul Blush as well as the Beauty Blender.

This is actually the second time that I recorded this video! The first time I spent so much time setting up, recording and even EDITING just to realize after hours of work that part of the video didn’t get recorded. Ugh. But I pushed on! haha

As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts on this video as well as what you’d like to see from me in the future!

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer Review

OVERALL: 7.25

Packaging: Not at all a fan of this packaging. The pump works in a way that practically forces you to waste a ton of product. 4/10

Longevity: Long lasting and holds up very well throughout the day. 9/10

Application: Blends easily as long as you don’t wait too long. This product dries kind of fast for concealer. 8/10

Texture: Creamy and easy to spread. 8/10

Oh MAC Pro Longwear Concealer ($20), where do I start? I love you dearly but at the same time, you make me want to pull my hair out.

I’ve been using the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer almost exclusively for a while now and it’s turning into a serious love/hate relationship. On one hand, the formula is wonderful. It provides great, long lasting coverage with very minimal creasing and holds up well throughout the day. It’s practically everything I’ve ever wanted in a concealer, ignoring the fact that the packaging is utterly infuriating.
