NYX Favourites

Not too long ago,  I posted a blog filled with my favourite Soap and Glory makeup products.  Since so many of you enjoyed it so much, I decided I would do another!

NYX is one of my new favourite high street makeup brands. It’s super affordable and incredible quality, and it’s only something I’ve started to try this year. After hoping it would come to the UK- it finally landed at Boots and other retailers. Over the past few months, I’ve built a little NYX collection- full of face, eye, and lip products. Today I thought I’d share my favourites from the brand, for whether you’re wanting to try some NYX products or looking for new affordable makeup on the high street.

NYX Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette, £15.00:

 I’m absolutely in love with this palette. For some reason, I actually only own liquid or stick highlighters, so these were my first highlighters in powder form. I’d seen various photos of this palette online, and I was so happy to find it whilst on a Boots shopping spree. Strobe of Genius is way better than I expected, one of the reasons being that  you have a wide range of colours that you can mix and match as you like.   The highlighters are buildable, long lasting, and pigmented. Although £15 may seem like a lot, it’s really good for the range of highlighters you’re getting at such an amazing quality.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Cannes, a mauve warm pink.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Cannes, £5.50
I’ve never been a fan of matte lip products, especially as my lips are usually dry and are forever needing lip balm applied to them. But then I found the NYX soft matte lip creams. Myself and my friend fell in love with the shade ‘Cannes’, which can be described as a mauve warm pink, and we both decided to bite the bullet and try it out for ourselves. I’d heard that NYX’s Soft Matte Lip Creams were soft (duh, it’s in the name) and not too drying on the lips, and I have to say this is SO true. Yes, they have a matte finish, but they aren’t drying at all! The lip creams are also long lasting…definitely worth the hype!

NYX Intense Butter Gloss, Marshmallow, £5.50

This gloss is so pigmented, with a great colour pay off that lasts for a long time. Toasted Marshmallow can be described as a pretty mauve plum shade, with a lovely shine. It’s really comfortable to wear, and it’s not too heavy.

NYX Butter Gloss, Angel Cake, £5.00

This gloss is definitely a go to for me; such a beautiful pink shade, and it’s also long lasting and very pigmented. If you’re not a big fan of lipglosses, I’d opt for this rather than the intense butter gloss range, as it’s a little lighter on the lips and not too glossy.

NYX Single eyeshadow in the shade ‘Sin’.

NYX Hot Singles Eye Shadow, Sin, £3.50:
This eyeshadow is incredible- extremely pigmented and such a beautiful colour also. I’m so suprised that these eyeshadows are just  £3.50- considering the quality you’re getting! This shade (which coincidently has the same name) is pretty much identical to the shade ‘Sin’ in the Urban Decay N*ked palette. I’ve recently discovered that you can create your own NYX shadow palette, which I’m definitely considering!

NYX Concealer Wand, £5.50:
I don’t think I need to rave about this concealer again to you all, but I couldn’t do a NYX Favourites post without including it. This concealer is my go-to; it blends easily, is creamy, and is great at concealing blemishes. I can’t recommend this concealer to you enough!

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils in shades Sparkle N*de and Yoghurt. Pictured with NYX single eyeshadow Sin.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils:

The Jumbo Eye Pencils are so so lovely, another product I’ve raved about to you all before. They’re pigmented, easy to apply, and with such good colour pay off. Perfect as a base for eyeshadow or just on their own!
