NYX Review

Nyx has always been one of my favourite affordable drugstore brands. The quality of these products is comparable to a lot higher end brands, but at less than half (sometimes even less) the cost.


I find a lot of lip colours(especially liquid ones) don't translate onto darker skin tones similarly to how they look in the packaging. The colours also dry differently on different skin tones depending on the undertone for your skin. So i swatched the lip shades for you guys on my brown skin which has a yellow undertone.

Going from the bottom left and upwards, the colours are:

Liquid Suede - Soft Spoken (Dark Mauve Pink)

Lip Lingerie - Lace Detail (Light Pink with a slight brown undertone)

Lip Lingerie - Ruffle Trim (Light brown shade with a pink/orange undertone)

Liquid Suede - Sandstorm (Brown with a slight purple/grey undertone)

Lip Lingerie - Exotic (Red with a brown/orange undertone)

I have been using these products since they were released, however the Liquid Suede, and the Lip Lingerie formulations differ slightly. The Lip Lingerie is a matte, dry finish. Perfect for long days as the colour dries completely, and does not transfer.

The Lip Suede sets matte, however, doesn't completely dry, making it very comfortable to wear, however requiring touch ups during the day. 

Other products that I have tested and loved by NYX are the HD Finishing Powder (Dupe for the Makeup Forever HD Powder), the Matte Bronzer, and any of the blushes available by NYX (one of the main reasons they became famous). I especially love the Ombre blushes, because they are easy to blend, extremely pigmented, and have a  complimentary highlighter in them as well. 

I decided to do a full face using just NYX products, just to show you how fabulous they look on the skin (this tends to be one of my go to everyday looks):
