NYX Mini Haul Review + Look

The Look:  A classic winged liner and berry lip.

The Products:

NYX Felt Tip Liner in Jet Black - $10.99
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Monte Carlo - $8.99
NYX Blush in Red - $10.99

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!

  5. I also got a few things from NYX brand at my beauty shop. However, they were doing a buy one get one 50% off and I also had a $3.50 off $10 coupon which made everything so much cheaper! I was pretty pleased. My favorite was also their blush, I loved the pigment and fact they didn't have sparkles. Hate super shimmery faces.
