Hello, Beautiful! Thank you for stopping by♥

Today we are going to be reviewing the NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray.

In the sea of over hyped & primarily high end setting sprays and finishing mists, it is hard not to be excited about affordable dupes #YAY!!! Drugstore has been seriously stepping it up! More and more drugstore brands are coming out with affordable alternatives. The question is, if the ‘alternatives’ are really such?!

NYX is one of my favorite drugstore brands, so I decided to give a go to its new setting spray.

The one I got for myself is the ‘dewy finish’ one which is perfect for winter since my skin does tend to get dry. However, there’s also a ‘matte’ one, if that’s the type of finish you desire ♥

PROs:nyx

  • PRICE! The first advantage of this product is that it is quite affordable (I got mine at CVS for $9.00), especially in comparison with high end ones (over $30.00 on average). You get 2.03 fl. oz / 60 ml, which is not a crazy big amount but considering that, for instance, I personally think that settings sprays is something for a special occasion in order to make your makeup last longer than usual (and that’s how I plan to use it) – the amount of the product is quite decent!
  • FINISH! NYX Setting Spray gives an absolutely beautiful dewy finish that lasts all throughout the day. This is definitely one of the main reasons I fell in love with this product! Nothing has ever made my skin that glowy and healthy looking 🙂
  • LONGEVITY! The spray lasts literally all day, there’s no need to reapply it. Which also means that you’re using a very little amount of product at once (thanks to its awesome delivery system, btw) and it will last you a very long time!

CONs:

  • SCENT! It literally smells like a subtle version of hair spray, which is not the best scent, especially when you spray it on your face. To be fair, the smell does go away in a very little while, so I personally can handle that!

Have a wonderful day! Hope to see you around again ♥♥♥

REVIEW: BOURJOIS Volume Glamour Push Up MASCARA

Bourjois_Volume_Glamour_Push_Up_Mascara___Black_34g_1413444239I just recently discovered the BOURJOIS Volume Glamour Push Up Mascara. Saying that I am just pleased means saying nothing! Basically, for now this is my holy grail mascara, and here’s why:

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

PROs: 

  • Makes eyelashes thick and full in just one coat – a little goes a long way!
  • Does not smudge under eyes even without setting my under eye area with a powder
  • The uplifting brush coats lash by lash, separating them, giving volume and length.
  • Takes off easily, not leaving any dark circles around eyes, does not irritate eyes as well

CONs:

  • The only CON for me would be its scent, but it’s not a big deal for me)
