NYX Total Control Drop Foundation – Yes or No?

Hello lovely people! I am sure everyone heard about NYX Total control drop foundation by now. It has been all over the youtube. A lot of youtuber raved about it. There are so many tutorials. I always interested in liquid foundation. I love NYX products too, especially their eyeshadows and eyeliner. When I found out the foundation is available here, I had to try it. NYX claims that this foundation has coverage from sheer to full. It has velvety and matte finish. You can get more coverage by using more drops. NYX also recommends to use the Total control foundation brush to apply the foundation to achieve “a seriously smooth finish“. There are 24 shades.

2016 favourites | Makeup

Happy holidays, guys! It’s almost the end of the 2016. Time flies. New Year is just around the corner. I hope you are enjoying the festive period, getting some rest, doing the things you love with your family, and sharing some good laughs.

Since it’s the end of the year, I would love to share some of my makeup favourites in this year with you. Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eye Shadow Palette – Neutral and bright tone eye shadows in heart shape pan ( I surrendered already when I saw it). The chocolate smell is divine.

Hourglass vanish seamless foundation stick |Review

Personally, I think the most important part of makeup is the foundation. A good foundation helps to prepare your skin to have a good base for the makeup. For me, a good base means natural looking and even skin tone.
