What's better than a 30% professional discount on NYX Cosmetics? Ulta's buy two get one free NYX sale! Ulta is located at the Altamonte Mall, across from the Florida Mall, Waterford Lakes, and Winter Park Village. If you have not tried NYX, now is the time. Several products were sampled to see if they withstood Orlando's severe weather conditions (I.e. Humidity and recent thunderstorms). The question is: did the products survive the test? No. Although the colors are pretty, the slim eye pencil and jumbo eye pencil creased almost immediately and faded quickly. When layered over the HD Eye Shadow Base, the colors were slightly more vibrant but still creased. Unlike Urban Decay's Primer Potion, after the product dried, a swipe of the finger made a mess. Colors sampled were: Lavender, Gold, Baby Blue, Electric Blue, and Aqua Glitter. Hot Pink and Herra were as anticipated as far as performance on the lips. Overall the products sampled were disappointing for use as a makeup artist. However, they are fun for practice as a beginner. More NYX items will be sampled for future articles.
