So over the last few months NYX has been arriving in pharmacies throughout Ireland and I could not be more excited. NYX is a fantastic budget range from the US and ya you could buy it online but as a beauty junkie I love to try and test and smell everything before buying.
The Jumbo Lip Pencils are amazing. I cannot get over how pigmented they are. I got two Pecan and Plush Red. Pecan is a natural muted mauve a brilliant everyday colour. And Plush Red is the perfect "blue" red.
Both are long lasting (I can get about 4 hours from them) and
apply really easily leaving a beautiful smooth finish.
I will definitely be buying more of these
I bought the Jumbo Eye Pencil in Iced Mocha. I love cream based shadows because they can be used on their own as a quick and easy everyday shadow or as a primer under your powder eyeshadow to hold it in place all day. Iced Mocha is a beautiful bronze champagne colour and I have wore it pretty much everyday since getting it. It applies beautifully and leaves a satin finish without too much shimmer.
The NYX blush was the first product I heard about from the range. I think every beauty blogger has raved about at least one of these colours at some stage or another. Lets start with Mauve the lightest of the three colours. This is the perfect muted peachy pink. It is a matte blush, is very soft and blendable and the perfect idiot proof blush for inexperienced users or those with a heavy hand.
Dusty Rose is a light/medium rosy pink. It can be applied subtly or you can build it up to get a deeper rosy colour from it. It is super easy to blend and literally melts into the skin. This is a great everyday colour.
And last my favourite is Pinched. It is a pinkish peach with gold shimmer and is very flattering on the cheeks. It gives a healthy natural looking flush to the skin all day.
I also got one of the matte lipsticks in Angel. I am not a huge fan of matte lipsticks but this doesn't dry out your lips like some of those available on the market. It applies buttery smooth, is highly pigmented and leave your lips with a non-glossy, matte finish.
And last but not least I bought three of the Butter Glosses. These are my favourite lip product EVER. They glide on and have great selection of colours. ....But disaster happened...I lost my handbag with all 3 of them in it....I am devastated!!!!! I don't think I have ever been as upset!!!
So I have no swatches for you...Sorry!!!
NYX is available in pharmacies nationwide.
Keep an eye out for it and I promise you will fall in love
with it as much as I have.
Until next time...Be Happy!!!
