Part 2 of my VA cheap shopping haul was at Ulta.
I heard lots of raves about NYX, so when I had a $5 of $10 coupon from Ulta, I decided to test out NYC.
Why not right? I'm definitely testing out some low end/drugstore products to make my money stretch far these days and a lot of beauty gurus and makeup artist I have been watching have all had this NYX jumbo eye pencil in their kit - so if it's good enough for them, it's good enough for me.
Now, the second product is my eyebrow cake powder, which I stupidly got in a slightly lighter color than I should have. I have black eyebrows and so I got this in brunette, but really even the darker part of the 2 colors was too light on me. I was not fond of the wax part on the far left. It had a petroleum jelly smell to it and it brought back some bad childhood memories lol. My parents used petroleum jelly on EVERYTHING lol. So I did try this once on my eyebrows and I was happy with the overall look after I was finished, but I am so sensitive to certain smells and I will probably end up putting this one on sale.
It comes with 2 brushes, a slanted eyebrow brush and a eyebrow brush. Both were sturdy and well made for this little kit. Other than that, I wish the wax was already mixed in with the color for easier application. My hunt for eyebrow makeup continues....
