Review & Swatchfest: NYX Pin-up Tease Mascara

Another product I received in my NYX Beauty Bundle from Total Beauty Live was NYX's Pin-Up Tease Mascara. Before trying this, I hadn't used any of NYX's mascaras. I was excited to not only get a taste of them, but supposedly get Pin-Up Lashes in the process.

As you can tell from the pictures, NYX's Pin-Up Tease aims to pump up your lashes with a curved, rubber brush. In the close-up picture of the wand, you can also see the shininess of the formula and lack of clumps which indicates a thin,wet formula that won't weigh your lashes down.

This mascara definitely curls and, what's more, it holds curl. From when I put it on at 9 am until I took it off at 9 pm, this mascara stayed in place and my lashes held their shape. As you might be able to tell in the picture above, the shape of the brush made it difficult to coat and separate my inner lashes, but it did make it easier to coat the tops of my lashes. While it might come down to needing a more skilled hand, I think this tradeoff is something that comes with the brush shape.

Overall, this is a great mascara for the $5.99 price tag! It lifts and curls and does both on a budget. You can purchase it at ULTA or on NYXcosmetics.com, but you just have to be aware of the brush shape and be willing to work with it.
