Hey y'all! Today I was at Rexall doing some mailing and I spotted the NYX Makeup brand in the cosmetics section. I've seen this brand a lot in YouTube videos and blogs but never in stores before. I find that it's a lot more popular in the US than Canada and I usually buy my drugstore makeup at Shoppers Drug Mart which doesn't carry NYX. Gotta get those Optimum Points ya feel me?
Anyways, I decided to buy a couple things (seen above) and here are my thoughts:
The Liner - It's not bad but I wasn't wowed. It dried very matte making it hard to do touchups. Higher end brands like Smashbox offer a better felt tip liner in my opinion.
The Matte Lip Cream - I'm not a lipgloss person at all, but I actually like this product because it dries ultra matte and had nice pigmentation. The colour applied more berry than true red. I will probably try out some other shades.
The Blush - Great colour and way more pigmented than I thought! A very matte, no shimmer, red. Had to go easy on my pale skin so I wouldn't look like a clown.
Overall, I'm pretty impressed with the brand and with those prices you can't go wrong!
