NYX Cosmetics is one of my all-time favorite beauty brands. Besides being incredibly affordable, with most products well under $10, their makeup performs just as well as as most higher end brands. In fact, even better sometimes.
Sure, there are a couple of disappointments in the line, as is the case with every beauty brand, but by and large I know I’m buying something I will love, use, and highly recommend with every NYX purchase, which is a cruelty-free brand.
These super smooth and buttery lipsticks are $5 of fabulous, guaranteed. Get your hands on some Butter lipsticks, you won’t regret it!
Not sticky at all, these provide gorgeous, non-shimmery shine that will wear for hours.
These smooth gel liners are dupes for Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide On Liners. While they’re a tad more emollient, they perform just as well and are long-wearing on the waterline. I love Glitzy Gold and Sunrise Blue – two must-haves, in my opinion.
These are the concealers that took me from high end concealer snob to budget-friendly appreciator. This is really lightweight and perfect for blasting out dark under eye circles.
Holy moly, this is fantastic! It’s replaced my MAC Studio Finish concealer and has made my battle with hyperpigmentation so much better. This is great for heavy duty concealing needs.
While I haven’t done a formal review on these liners, I am wild about them. They are waterproof, pigmented, and glide right on your lips and eyes. For lips, I love Nectar, and for a pop of color on the waterline, I love Silver.
For just $7, you’re getting a plethora of buttery, smooth, pigmented eyeshadows that you’ll be reaching for on a regular basis.
These make adding glitter to your eye looks so, so, so easy. I don’t know what I did without this liner in my life!
For a peek behind the scenes of NYX, here’s an interview with company founder Toni Ko.
