Review: NYX Pin UP Tease Mascara


Some of you may recall that before I went on my no-buy, I was on the search for the perfect mascara. I picked up NYX's Pin Up Tease mascara when they were having a NYX sale. It typically retails for $6 from NYX. It's described as "Features a smudge-free formulation that adds major curl to the lash as it coats them with sexy, vibrant color. Hard bristle combs help separate lashes and shape their curl. Part of the Boudoir Mascara Collection, seven distinct NYX mascaras featuring unique formulations and wands."

 The wand is very curved and definitely stiffer than other mascara wands I've used.

 I have to say that I'm in love. The formula is neither too wet nor too dry. You don't have to scrape a big gob of mascara off the end.  With one or two swipes, my lashes are longer and have a definite curl to them.

I find this doesn't cause any dark circles. It may flake a little if you rub your eyes a lot. It provides a nice soft and full looking lash without getting chunky or fake looking. My lashes still look great after an eight hour day at work.  NYX cosmetics are Cruelty Free.


Bat's Rating: 10. I really can't find anything I don't love about this mascara.

  1. I love it too! How smudge-proof is it? I rub my eyes a lot.

  2. I noticed I was rubbing my eyes quite a bit the other day. It doesn't smudge but it might flake a little bit.

  6. Sold! I hate the clump of mascara goo you have to clean off the end of the wand. And I can really tell the difference in your pictures. Nice!

  7. I know! It seems so wasteful and I never get all of it off and wind up smudging it somewhere.

  13. Thanks for following. Mascara is one of the makeup items I don't feel like spending a lot of $$ on. $6 for this is definitely a great find.
