NYX Butter Lip Balm (Macaron, Red Velvet, Brownie, Panna Cotta) | Review + Swatches

Macaron - Red Velvet - Brownie - Panna Cotta

These tinted lip balms by NYX provide a hydrating wash of color on the lips and retail for $4. I don't know how similar these are to NYX's previous Color Lip Balm line. I have the delectable shades Macaron, Red Velvet, Brownie, and Panna Cotta but it also comes in Lady Fingers, Parfait, Marshmallow, Biscotti (8 shades total). The first thing I noticed was the scent. Ahhh, they smell exactly like the taste of the blue raspberry Dum Dums (my favorite flavor), but they don't taste like anything which I guess helps with staying power...

NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder (Black/Gray) | Review + Swatches

This eyebrow kit by NYX contains 2 brow powders, a wax, and mini applicators for $6. It's pretty hard to find a brow powder geared towards the black-haired audience, especially at an affordable cost, and I'm not one who wants to have brown eyebrows with black hair so I had to try this out. The eyebrow cake powder also comes in dark brown/brown, taupe/ash, auburn/red, brunette, and blonde. I'm quite satisfied with this.

NYX Bohemian Chic Palette | Review + Swatches

I had been eyeing Nyx's Bohemian Chic palette for quite a while because it's exclusively matte with a ton of neutral eyeshadows (!!!) and peachy-coral blushes, so when the Labor Day weekend sale sprang up before my birthday, I ordered it among other goodies (which I will eventually review).

I got this for $12.60 since it was 30% off (originally $18) so it's definitely a steal. I'm so happy with palette, ahhh. Anyway, read on for my review or skip to the bottom for pros and cons.
