Nyx Haul + Quick First Impressions
When it comes to good quality drugstore makeup brands, Nyx cosmetics definitely has it’s own special place. Like all brands there’re some hits and misses, but for the most part, their products are very well formulated and are well worth the money. Recently I picked up few products, which I’ve been using for past few days.
I’m not much of a “blush person”, In fact it’s one of the least tempting makeup products for me. So, to try out something new I bought a couple of Nyx cosmetics baked blushes, Chiffon & Sugar mama. On the packaging it says it’s also an illuminator and bronzer. I don’t know about that. The pigmentation is not too strong, which can be a good thing. If you tend to overdo your blush or you’re a beginner, blushes like that are easy to use, and are less likely to make you look like a clown. These blushes have a spray on shimmer/mirco-glitter, rub off the first layer and they’re smooth underneath. The first layer makes them feel a little stiff but once you swirl it off , the formula is smooth and adds a beautiful glow to the skin.
Nyx Soft matte lip creams are one of their best selling makeup products. Finding a good matte lip product in the drugstore is actually hard. These lip creams are comfortable on the lips, but can be drying after a while, but given that these are matte lip products, it’s expected. They’re not super opaque. These lip creams feel very light on the lips and the applicator is very very easy to use. “Abu Dhabi” and “Milan” are the two I ended up buying.
If you have been following my blog for a while, you’ll know I never really buy glosses, because literally every time I try out a new gloss it ends up being the sticky one. And I hate, absolutely hate sticky glosses. The only lip glosses I like and use are from Estee Lauder. Again, to try out something new I picked up just one gloss from Nyx. I’ve heard so many amazing things about nyx butter glosses. “Creme brulee” is the one I picked, and while it’s a little sticky, I can work with it. It’s not super sticky, just a tad, which makes it really long-lasting.
These’re the products I picked up recently + quick first impressions.
