After the recent Irish launches of US brands such as Wet'n'Wild and Physicians Formula now came the time for NYX! The make-up god must have heard my prayers because I had been lusting after their products for absolute ages! I am not a huge fan of buying make-up online (unless I am re-purchasing) so you can imagine my delight when I found out that the NYX goodies are now available on our highstreets!
NYX is an LA brand that has been a firm favourite of make-up lovers as well as professional make-up artists for a long time now. They have a huge selection of products, everything from setting sprays, foundations, blushes, lip products, eye makeup... I could go on for a while...!
I have been sent a selection of products* to play around with and, oh boy, do I love them!! Here is just a little round-up:
I am very impressed with the lip offering, there's a something here for everyone - matte and creamy lipsticks, lip liners, jumbo pencils and the ever so popular (I can see why!!!) butter glosses. I will be picking up more shades of all of these!
Blushes / Bronzers
I have seen lots of good reviews on the NYX blushes and I was not disappointed. The ones I was sent are a blush in the shade Peach (a gorgeous peach / pink colour) as well as a blush & bronzer duo in Ibiza - LOVE this product, it will come in very handy for summer!
There is a ton of different products on offer in the eye department, everything from cream jumbo eye pencils, eyeshadow palettes and an array of eyeliners. I absolutely loved the consistency and colour of the jumbo eye pencil in Cashmere, a soft gold shade. I want to pick up some more of these (maybe some bronze shades..?) when I get the chance. The kohl liner is also a really nice one, a very intense black with lots of colour payoff and great consistency.
I tried the HD concealer and fell in love instantly! It's a high coverage concealer that worked really nicely under my eyes as well as on the rest of my face. The formulation is ever so slightly dry so it might not be suitable for everyone's under-eye area but will be fab for concealing pigmentation and spots! There are 8 nice concealer shades available and also 3 correctors - a yellow, green and purple one. I will be picking up all of these for my kit!
There is a ton more products that I want to buy from NYX so this launch may not be the best news for my bank balance but, hey, you only live once!
Have you tried NYX? Any firm favourites you can recommend?
