NYX has been a reputable cosmetic brand for sometimes now. The first time I’ve ever heard about NYX was their famous soft matte lip cream. Not only it has a non-drying formula, it also has a range of different colours and they a are generally quite pigmented. A few days ago, I went for a NYX shopping haul at Priceline (Australia’s Drugstore) and decided to try and create a Korean Makeup look using mainly NYX cosmetics. In the process of my makeup, there are some great products that I will re-use but some might just get stored in the box. I will give you a brief review of this NYX makeup haul.
Hits and Misses of NYX Makeup Products
NYX HD Finishing Powder – Transparent
This finishing powder is super fine and soft on the skin. There’s no scent to it as well. It does a great “baking” job and creates a smooth finish to your skin.
NYX Prismatic Shadow Girl Talk PS04 + Fireball PS09
At the price of $9.00, this eyeshadow is a total bargain. Very pigmented and they have a range of unique colour to choose from!
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil 609 French Fries
This color is very pigmented and beautiful. Very easy to draw on the eyelid and doesn’t smudge.
NYX High Definition Blush HDB05 Summer
Beautiful color and highly pigmented as well. A little goes a long way with this.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream SMLC07 Addis Ababa
This is what NYX is famous for. This lip cream creates a gorgeous matte finish without drying up your lips.
NYX Dark Circles Concealer + Green Concealer : Formula is too Dry for my skin
Nyx Faux Lashes Mascara: Too wet and heavy, create lumps on lashes
Nyx Natural Shadow Palette: Pigmentation is off
Nyx BB Cream: Doesn’t do anything to the skin other than caking it up
Nyx Two Timer Eyeliner: The Graphic Eyeliner is hard to work with, the pencil liner is too hard and dry, it breaks when I start drawing my liner.
Nyx Eyebrow Cake Powder: Not my favorite brow products but it’s not bad
Nyx Photo Loving Primer (Lavender): Great makeup primer, gives you a smooth finish but I don’t see it brightens my face.
Nyx Wonder Stick (Light): The shade matches my skin tone but the formula a bit too oily for my liking. Need to set it with contour powder after.
The challenge of this makeup was applying the foundation and eyeshadow with NYX BB cream and NYX Natural Eyeshadow Palette. The BB cream has low coverage while NYX Natural eyeshadow Palette is very low pigmented. Not a big fan of those two products from NYX. Other products are of decent quality. My top 3 favourites would be the Lip cream (of course), Blush and the NYX Jumbo Liner.
