I did notice that the tube is very… squeezy. There’s a lot of give to the tube, and you’ll need to squeeze it with some pressure to squeeze out the product. This isn’t a criticism, because it allows for more precision and less waste; you won’t squeeze out too much. I just received this tube on Friday, but I did not experience any separation in this tube (which is my annoyance with Too Faced Shadow Insurance) — can’t tell you for sure, since it’s likely a new tube and all that. But so far so good!
I’m sure the packaging change (or at least the availability of it–again, still waiting to hear more information) is a welcome one for a lot of UDPP fans. I was never bothered by UDPP’s original packaging, but I’ve also never been near finishing one!
NYX Hero Lipstick ($4.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deepened neutral-cool blue-based red with a creamy, glossy finish and opaque color. My NYX Round Lipsticks seem to be scent-free overall, but I do have a few that were brand new and smelled a little on the plastic side, while a couple had more of a general perfume-y feel. I’m not entirely sure why there is so much variation across the board! I love the texture and feel of their Round Lipsticks, though; incredibly creamy and the darker shades are certainly quite pigmented. They do have a fair amount of slip, so they may bleed if you’re prone to to that, and I don’t find they last more than two to three hours, with darker shades on the three hour side and some leaving behind a soft stain.
