A NYX Roundup

Wow thats a lot of NYX Lips products. It was almost a 'NYX Lip Edit' but I thought I'd throw in some other favourites. With NYX still being relatively new here in the UK I have gathered quite a collection. I think they are great, affordable brand, I haven't tried anything I've hated. So heres a roundup of all things NYX...

NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer | £14                                                                 POST

I won't bore you guys with my love of glowing skin. But my quest for that perfect glow led me to this primer. I picked this up because I've never seen anything quite like it from the drugstore. To be honest I thought it was an oil. But it has a gel like consistency. Its yellow tone is supposed to cancel out any redness and give skin a honey like glow. It also has gold flecks in it that reflect the light. I don't really have an issue with redness so I can't comment on that. But this does leave skin with a radiant looking finish. It also feels refreshing to use and leaves me with a smooth base for makeup.

NYX HD Foundation | £12.50

This claims to have light defusing particles that reflects the light and leaves skin photo ready all day. I really like this foundation. I need to use it more. It's thin and runny in consistency, making it easy to blend and offers a medium coverage. This does leave my skin looking flawless. It has a very subtle radiance about it too. It lasts all day on me without powder. All in all a winning foundation! See my full review here. 

NYX HD Concealer | £5.50

After loving the foundation I knew I had to get my hands on the concealer too. And I was not disappointed! This offers great coverage - the best coverage I've had from a concealer, but a good medium. It blends out with ease, lasts all day and doesn't crease! To see more of my favourite concealers see Concealers | The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

NYX Concealer Pot | £5.50

If super full coverage concealer is what your after I can't recommend these enough! I have two shades, a skin toned one and a yellow for my dark circles. These are really thick and do take some working to blend them out but once they have the finish and coverage is incredible. I like to use my Real Techniques Complexion sponge to really work them in.

NYX HD Pressed powder | £8.00

This is the newest edition to my NYX family and a very welcomed one. Obviously I wanted to complete my HD base collection so I just had to get it. And its brilliant. I picked up the yellow shade, mainly to set my under eye concealer. And its brilliant, it has a very slight yellow tone too but this doesn't compromise its brightening abilities and just makes it perfect for setting the whole face, without leaving a yellow cast on the skin. Its finely milled and melts into the skin seamlessly. For £8 this is a great little powder.

NYX HD Blush | £5.50

This was my go to blush throughout the winter. I have the shade Bitten which is a deep, plumy colour with mauve under tones. This is silky smooth to apply and has super good pigmentation! I only need to lightly dab my brush once! I've also heard this a great blush shade for those with medium to dark skin tones.

NYX Lip Lingeries | £6.50                                                                                            POST

The beauty community has gone crazy for these. Myself included. You'll already know this if you read many of my previous posts! These are brilliant liquid lipsticks, that are easy to apply and have amazing staying power. I have two shades Exotic and Beauty Mark. I'm kind of disappointed with the shade Beauty Mark (thanks Boots online dodge swatch pictures!) Its a bold, cool toned brown. A side from the shade the formula is great. Exotic is my absolute favourite and has been my go to lip colour!

NYX Suede Liquid Lipsticks | £6.50                                                                       POST 

Love love love these! Again, they are liquid lipsticks that have added lip loving ingredients to stop them from drying the lips out. They are slightly more liquidy in consistency than the Lingeries and the applicator makes them tricky to apply. But once they are, these are not moving for a good few hours! I have two shades Sandstorm and Softly Spoken. I love both shades.. see swatches below.

NYX Lip Butters | £5                                                                                             POST 

These were the first NYX lip products I brought, after being so hyped up by Beauty Gurus across the pound and I was not disappointed. I tend to prefer matte finishes over glosses, but if I do want a gloss these are what I reach for. They are, as the names suggests, buttery and comfortable on the lips, without be sticky. They also smell so good! I have two shades: Madeleine, which is a beautiful, glossy nude, and Angel Food Cake, which is a lovely Mauve toned nude.

NYX Soft Matte Cream | £5.50

I couldn't do a NXY post and not mention the infamous Matte creams. To be honest I'm still on the fence about these. I only have one shade, which is Athens (A peachy nude) which I'm not a huge fan of. It actually translates to quite a neon bright shade on me. But that aside these are really comformable and cream like on the lips. I definitely need to get more shades. Leave shade recommendations below!

NYX Butter Lipstick | £5.50

I was instantly drew in by this shade; Root Beer Float - which is a dark pinky nude. This adds a subtle wash of colour in a creamy, hydrating formula. I definitely want to pick up more of these!

So thats my NYX roundup. Have you tried any of these? What are your favourite NYX Products?

Until next time...
