Keep Your Brows in Place with NYX Tame and Frame 

Hi guys! I reviewed the NYX micro brow pencil which I absolutely love; along with it I picked up the NYX Tame and Frame, because I’ve always wanted to try a brow pomade after my disastrous experience with the Kleancolor brow pomade. This is going to be a quick review. I’m a sucker for packaging, and I quite like this one. It’s plastic but is frosted so it gives it a glassy look. I picked it up in the shade espresso, just like with the micro brow, which is the next to last shade, not the last like I originally said. The product looks almost black in the tub but it’s a very dark brown. The swatch is very dark so is pretty scary, but it doesn’t translate to your brows. You can either build dramatic brows with it or a very natural brow, depending on what you want.Top: NYX Micro Brow Espresso.                     Bottom: NYX Tame and Frame Espresso 

The brow pomade is much darker than the pencil in the matching shade. Once this sets, it SETS. It’s not going anywhere, no matter how much I rub my brows, and I love that about it. 

My favourite way to use the Tame and Frame is to use it together with the Micro Brow pencil. I use the micro brow to give my brows definition then fill it in with the tame and frame. The combination is does not budge at all. 

I don’t have it anymore because I sold it in a recent blog sale I had but I really like this brow pomade.

Buy Or Nah| NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand

Hi guys! I recently picked up a bunch of NYX products, and the NYX HD Photogenic concealer was one of them. I’ve heard nothing but good things about this concealer, including that it is a dupe for the cult favourite NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. Of course I haven’t tried the Radiant Creamy Concealer but I’ve always wanted to but see the way my bank account is set up… Lol well I got the more pocket friendly alternative. I really like the packaging. It’s minimalist, but still really catchy. The top closes very securely; it is travel friendly because you can throw it into your bag easily and not worry about it breaking or spilling. 

According to the brand: Now comes in 12 more shades to accommodate an even wider range of skin tones, our best – selling HD Photogenic Concealer effectively covers imperfections, discoloration and under – eye circles without ever looking cakey or obvious. The result is beautiful, natural – looking coverage you can count on. 

It comes in 23 shades, including a few colour – correcting shades, and I picked it up in the shade Nutmeg.It has a doe foot applicator which makes application pretty convenient, but also makes me wonder about cross contamination but I try not to think of that so much 😂😂 

The shade Nutmeg is a pretty medium – dark with pinky undertones. The shade is about a shade or two lighter than my skin tone and I love that it is not too yellow, which is was one problem I had with the LA Girl pro concealer in the shade Fawn. I always thought it was too yellow and to combat the extreme yellow undertones, I mix it with another LA Girl concealer in Beautiful Bronze to tone it down a little because sometimes a yellow based foundation + a yellow based concealer + a yellow based setting powder = a hot mess. The shade is pretty close to the skin of my inner arm, which is lighter than my face, and I love how natural looking it is  

The formula is lightweight and very creamy. It’s a medium coverage and you could probably build it up but I don’t need a lot of coverage under my eyes because I don’t have dark circles. I have a line under my right eye that it sinks but aside from that, there is no creasing whatsoever. It held up really well, lasting the whole working day and some, which of course is very impressive. It blends easily with both my fingers and a beauty blender but I prefer using my finger because it provides fuller coverage. Here I compared the NYX HD concealer to the two LA Girl concealers I use on the regular, and you can see how very yellow Fawn is compared to Nutmeg. Beautiful Bronze is my exact shade but has more neutral undertones so a mixture of the two (Fawn+Beautiful bronze) gives me a pretty, toned down highlight. 

I set it with my Laura Mercier translucent powder and it stays put all day. The formula is hydrating for my under eye so there is no tightness like I get from the LA Girl concealers. And it doesn’t set too fast, giving enough time to make corrections. 

My one gripe with this is that it contains so little product, only a measly 0.11oz/3g of product which I know will definitely run out soon with everyday use. Buy or nah? I say BUY! It’s amazing! If you’ve tried this concealer, let me know your thoughts.
