I’ll try a product a few times/different ways to see if it was just that particular application method (like the first one) that wasn’t working. If it doesn’t work after a few attempts, though, I typically move onto something else. If it’s some really innovative and new product, I might look into how you’re supposed to use it and see if that helps at all. You just won’t see me going back to a product that requires two bases, using it wet, then setting it, then whispering magic words of encouragement, and then touching up a few hours later.

Beautiful Beginnings with NYX

Beautiful Beginnings with NYX

What was the first NYX product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first NYX product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer:  The first products I remember reviewing were lip products–a fair amount of lipsticks and lipglosses when I was doing the Sultry/Summer seasons. I think there is so much variety at the brand–kind of like if you need a lipstick in a certain color (not yellow, blue, and the like, though), they’ll have it.
