I find Nyx as a brand really appealing because of their diversity in products and affordable prices. They’re always following the latest trends so you can easily find everything you need with this brand. Lately, I got a couple of things from them, but I also have one old favorite so I wanted to make a short introduction about it in this post. So, here I’m going to write mini reviews about couple of the products from this brand.
NYX EYE PENCILS – COLORS: AZUR AND ESMERALDA
Now, I’m in the phase of using happy and vivid colors so these two eye pencils fit in perfectly into my makeup collection. The colors are beautiful azure blue end emerald green. They’re both great pigmented, with metallic finish, and the blue also contains silver glitter in it, but the glitter’s not too visible. I also use them as eye liner or on the bottom part of my eye (you know which part of the eye I’m talking about, the part where the lower lashes are). On that lower part, the permanence is great and they won’t move a bit and they won’t smudge. On your eyelid, the colors fade a bit and they disappear after maybe 4 hours, which is really a shame. They’re soft and they won’t irritate your eyes while you’re applying them. You can sharpen them with the pencil sharpener.
Each pencil has about 1.2 grams, and the price is: 7 €.
NYX JUMBO EYE PENCIL – COLOR: MILK
I’ve read only words of praise about this eye pencil, but somehow, I thought that I don’t need it 😀 This eye pencil is a multifunctional product and you can use it in various ways. I like to use it for my waterline or as an eyeshadow base in case I want to intensify the colors and it works phenomenal like this. It’s greasy and it’s high in pigmentation level so you must be careful not to overdo it. I’ve never used it as standalone product on my eyelids. You can also use it as a highlighter pen under your eyebrows.
The amount you get is 5 grams and the price is 7 €.
NYX VIVID BRIGHTS – COLOR: VIVID PETAL
I think this product is new in the Nyx collection and I could hardly wait to try it out because I love eyeliners in color. I don’t know how it’s in Croatia, but here there are 9 colors available, if I’m not mistaking. I chose Vivid Petal and this is a beautiful pink color. It’s very high in pigmentation level and it’s enough to apply only one layer. Still, sometimes, I let the first layer to dry and then I apply another layer because then the effect is somehow better. The brush is very precise and it’s easy to draw a line with it. The permanence is great and you don’t have to worry that it will come off. I was delighted with this product and I think I’m going to buy another color.
The amount you get is 2 ml, and the price is 7,75 €.
NYX BUTTER GLOSS – COLORS: ECLAIR, STRAWBERRY PARFAIT, SUGAR COOKIE, TIRAMISU, PRALINE
These lip glosses weren’t bought recently, I had them for a longer time now and considering, how you could find them in my favorites very often, I’ve decided to say a couple of words about them in this post too. I also had a couple of higher colored shades (red and purple ones), but I didn’t like them so much as I like these creamy ones. The colors Tiramisu and Éclair I like the best because they have this special cream texture and their pigmentation level is better than with the rest. So, these lip glosses are middle good in pigmentation level, they’re not permanent and whatever you eat, they’re going to disappear from your lips. In case you’re not eating anything, they’re going to last for about 2 or 3 hours. They’re not sticky, they feel comfortable on your lips. You either like or don’t like lip glosses, and I can tell you that I’m reaching out for them more often lately 😊
The amount for these lip glosses is 8 ml and the price is 7 €.
ECLAIR, STRAWBERRY PARFAIT, SUGAR COOKIE, TIRAMISU, PRALINE
