NYX Bear With Me Collection | Review

Thursday, October 31, 2019
It's the final day of October, and it has been raining nonstop for the last couple of days. But thankfully there is no snow so far (it snows like crazy where I live). But anywho, here is the reason for today's post.

Recently I had the opportunity to try NYX Cosmetic products from their new collection "Bare With Me" which promises that the product will feel lightweight and hydrating while still doing what it is supposed to do.

I was given these products from Chick Advisor which is a Canadian review site that has campaigns or opportunities to try out new products and give feedback to the companies and they sent me this nice package of the NYX products for free.

But before I start my review, I wanted to share this spooky looking picture that I took a couple of days ago on a really foggy morning.

Bare With Me

Hydrating Jelly Primer

This is so simple to use as I only had to dip my fingers in and take a small amount and then spread it over my face. A small amount goes a long way. Like its name, it is a clear gel-like substance that feels like semi-set gelatin (surprise!) but it is really lightweight and dries fast without dehydrating my skin or feeling sticky.

As I was putting on my foundation I found that the gel really helped minimize the look of my pores (which are huge!) and made applying makeup on much easier. The primer really helps with making the foundation stay in place and not move around (does it make sense?), and I ended up using less foundation than usual while getting the same coverage.

This product is a must-have as it made the whole process of putting on makeup much easier and smoother. At the end of the day my pores didn't feel clogged up and my skin felt hydrated. This jelly primer * I recommend as it worked really well and made my skin look and feel great!

Prime. Set. Refresh. Three-in-one Spray

This product works as a setting product, primer, and hydration spray. I love how it worked as it was super easy to spray on and my make up lasted the whole day without my skin feeling dry and stiff. It is easy to spray on and makes me feel so refreshed which is great when having a long day. It's like washing your face without actually having to.

This is a great product * to have and I do recommend it as it does many (useful) things.

Tinted Skin Veil Foundation

The point of this product is that it works like a foundation/moisturizer/. It is supposed to have 8hour hydrating coverage but unfortunately, this product was not my favorite for various reasons. 

First of all, I got the wrong shade and it was super light for my skin so I wasn't able to fully try it out for the whole day as I didn't want to go to school looking like a vampire with yellow undertones.
Second, when I did try it (in the sanctity of my home) I found that when I applied the coverage was very, very minimal to the point (which is the point) and I prefer to wear semi-coverage, something that tries to cover my acne.

The positives. It was super light, which I thought was great for everyday wear and does feel comfortable. Overall I would not recommend this product as the skin tone range is small and the coverage is very light and (for me) useless. 

Final Thoughts

Besides the foundation/veil, I really enjoyed the products in NYX's collection. It definitely fulfills the promise of the products being lightweight and hydrating.  The prices of the products are reasonable and the formula is great. I will definitely buy the jelly primer once this one runs out as it is a makeup-saver (is there such thing?).

What do you think? Have you tried any of the Bare With Me products? Any personal favorites that you would recommend?

Have a wonderful day

    1. Hope you have a chance to try them out, Jordanne. Chick Advisor is really great, I've had opportunities to try some great products for free!

  3. I'm always looking for new foundations to try, as it seem that the ones that I ended up liking keep getting discontinued. Thank you for the recommendation, I will definitely check it out.
