Product Review:

NYX is my favorite drug-store brand since they offer so many great products that are budget friendly with fantastic results. After using the blue colored mascara (May 12, 2014 On The Shelf) I knew if NYX was to offer more colors I would love them, and I do! The colors are true to their tube, as what you see is what you get.

The long wear-ability is comparable to higher end formulas and since I have not had any rub-off or transfer issues these new colors have been in a regular rotation for me. The application was initially an issue as the formula appears to be very thin, almost like water. Plus the applicator wand itself has changed and been made smaller. I like the previous version of NYX formula in regards to thickness and the included wand. These are the only two issues I can find with these new colors. However, I have had no issues with irritation to skin or eyes during application or while wearing. Some of the colors are tough to simply wipe off the lashes and require a quality makeup remover.

Overall, the price per tube is great! The thin formula can be managed with proper application technique. You can achieve a colorful pop that will last all day. For now the array of color will remain on my shelf, but I would love if NYX would use the previously included wand as I believe this would make application so much easier.
