I'm a desert based artist who lives for and loves beauty! I am also a notorious shopper. I love using makeup to transform a look or concept. I love a subtle look that highlights the features that I love about myself. This is what makeup should be about!

I bought this after seeing it mentioned all over the Internet for being great for those with dry skin; being that I have dry skin I decided to go for it and make the plunge! First, it smells amazing, amazing amazing. I would wear the scent as a body spray if I could. The first time I tried it, I used it over my set in moisturizer, let it sit and then applied a little bit of foundation and concealer. My make-up sat on my face and looked cakey and so oily. Now I've been trying it without using moisturizer and that seemed to really help, I'm just not sure it helped retain the moisture I need. For me, this serum is a little difficult to apply, a little bit doesn't go a long way, a bigger pump than that is just way too much and leaves me oily. I'm just not sure yet whether or not this is a must have.
I recommend try out the sample size of this before buying the full size :)
I love these NYX roll on shimmers! They're awesome when you use an eye primer but can fade and rub off very easily without. This shade specifically is a little too grainy, not as smooth as the nude daphne shade!
Maybe it's waterproof but it isn't totally smudge proof. The application is a little difficult because it's a weird shape for a pen, it's hard to tell how much product and pressure you're applying until it's too late.
So far I'm loving the applicator but it takes some push to get the product out! I have dry skin and so far have not noticed any patchiness. I have a lot of redness and acne scars and things are looking good! Good price for the product :)
Really nice primer! It goes on smoothly and spreads evenly. So far I've had no problems with it and my moisturizers or sunscreens! I don't think it extends my makeup that long but it helps me with my pores. Definitely photo ready.
