Brand Focus: NYX | My Favourite Products From NYX

Hello everyone!

A few weeks ago I started a new series on my blog where I share my favourite products from a specific makeup brand. Today's blog post is going to be dedicated to NYX, which is a brand I discovered earlier this year when they launched in Boots.

NYX Above & Beyond Full Coverage Concealer Jar:
So far the only base product I have tried from NYX is this concealer jar. I love this concealer as it is very comparable to the Benefit Boi-ing concealer. Both concealers are very thick and full coverage. I don't use this concealer under the eyes as it is on the thicker side and would crease horribly even after being set, but it's brilliant for covering blemishes and dark spots. This concealer is slightly more creamier than the Benefit concealer, and that means it blends out a lot easier than Boi-ing. You do need to keep in mind that this concealer needs to be set using a setting powder otherwise it will crease, but overall it is a really nice concealer. 


NYX Eye Shadows:
I have only tried these three shadows from NYX up to now, but I definitely want to try more. I have started to create my own custom eye shadow palette so I am going to make an effort to finish it off soon. I have included swatches of the three shades that I do already own; and you can definitely see from the image just how pigmented the shades are. The copper shade (Showgirl) is especially pigmented and looks gorgeous on the eyes. I also like to use the particular shade damp so that it is very intense and opaque. The matte taupe shade (Coquette) is a brilliant cool toned transition shade, which I don't own a lot of, and blends out amazingly into the crease. The third shade (Gumdrop) is a really pretty pale pink shade with a hint of shimmer running through it. I love this shade for all over the lid and in the inner corner.

NYX Tinted Brow Mascara:
As I have mentioned previously, I don't tend to do a lot when it comes to my eyebrows. I have tried and tested a lot of different brow gels and mascaras, but the Benefit Gimme Brow and this NYX brow gel are by far my favourites. I love how this brow mascara coats every brow hair evenly and adds just the right amount of tint to the hairs. I definitely don't need to use any other product when I use this because my brows look so full and groomed with this product alone. 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm:
When it comes to lip products I only ever wear matte products nowadays. This NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is one of the most comfortable lip products I have ever tried, and it's matte too. Normally matte lipsticks are very drying on the lips, but you can't even feel this on the lips when you're wearing it. The formula of this lip cream is very smooth and buttery, but it does take a few applications to get an even finish. With that being said, when on the lips this lipstick looks very opaque and velvet like. The shade I own is Stockholm, Stockholm is not the usual shade I would go for (but it is still very pretty!) so I am definitely going to try a few of the other shades.

NYX Lip Lingeries:
Some of my favourite liquid lipsticks of 2017 are the Lip Lingeries. I have three shades and I have absolutely used them to death! There is something about these lipsticks that I just cannot get enough of! Like the Soft Matte Lip Cream, the formula of these lipsticks are really soft and creamy. All three of these shades apply beautifully on the lips and don't cling to dry patches. The only problem I have with these lipsticks is that the applicators are quite long which means precise application can be quite difficult, but you can avoid that issue by using a lip brush to apply the lipstick instead. I have the shades Ruffle Trim, Teddy and Beauty Mark; my favourite being Teddy. I definitely recommend these lipsticks if you have dehydrated lips but still want to rock a matte liquid lipstick:)


I hope you enjoyed this blog post, I certainly enjoyed writing it! What are your favourite NYX products?


Until next time,
