Review: More Summer Fun With NYX Cosmetics...#NYXCosmetics #lipstick #eyeshadow #pigment #blush

I received a few items from NYX Cosmetics to try out. Here are the reviews of these items. I already reviewed a few of the items separately, because those items were special cult classics. The rest I wanted to review here, all in one dose, so to speak.

Give your cheeks a radiant flush of color. Ombré Blush comes in 8 shades of gradient, coordinating color inspired by the ombré trend. This must-have formula features two silky colors blended into one perfectly coordinated shade combo. I tried Code Breaker, a gorgeous Orchid that blends into a bright pop of fuchsia. What I love about this blush is how pigmented it is and how bright it is. But at the same time the color goes on light so that you can build it up and not look like a clown. You can work with the large color alone or work with both colors together.

NYX Cosmetics High Definition Blush $6.50

NYX Cosmetics High Definition Blush comes in 24 shades and is highly pigmented. All of the shades are complementary to many skin tones. The blush itself goes on silky and smooth. Since it is highly pigmented you do have to be careful of how much blush you are putting on your blush brush, as you can always add more but it is harder to take the blush off. The only thing I did NOT like about this product is how fragile it is. I dropped on the floor and it shattered into a gazillion pieces. I did not throw it away. I was not going to do that. I used the alcohol trick to fix it. Now they sell Pro refills for $6.00 that you can replace for your empty pans.
The color I tried was Baby Doll. The nice thing about wearing this blush is that it blends very easily. The colors are bright enough and look nice and don’t fade. They stay on all day long. The blushes are true to color and do not oxidize on the skin either. I like how many colors there are to choose from too. As I mentioned the only caveat is the fact that they break easy if dropped. The container is kind of small and I am clumsy. So, I dropped them a lot! They are a bit fragile.

NYX Cosmetics has 88 shades of their super fabulous Hot Singles Eye Shadows. I adore them so much because they are extremely pigmented. There is little to no fallout with these shadows, which makes them all the more amazing. There are so many colors that you will be able to find any combination of colors you want. I tried Wild Orchid and Gumdrop. These are some of their most popular products. You can see the look I did with them in the section on Pigment section. I used Potion Pigment with these shadows and did a nice look., it's right below here.

NYX Pigments

With radiant hues of velvety blue and teal to glistening finishes of duo-chrome and metallics, each color can be mixed and matched to your every desire. 

I tried Potion, a beautiful shimmery purple. I did a look with the pigment and the Hot Singles Eyeshadows in Wild Orchid and Gumdrop. Below is this look.

NYX Cosmetics Plush Gel Lipstick $7.00
Make your pout playful with Plush Gel Lipstick. Available in a total of 12 vibrant shades. This lipstick brings together an oh-so-soft feel and the high shine of a gloss. Drench lips in a wash of color for an intstantly polished look anytime you crave a quick touch up. If you would like a bolder finishh, then put on a second swipe and be twice as nice. Yuo will have that much more color  on your lips and they will stand out twice as much. 

I tried two colors, Breakup (a chocolate brown) and Azalea (a bright pink). Both look great on the lips. They wear well and are a cross between a lipstick and a gloss. Below are photos of Breakup and Azalea.

This lipstick is the color addict's ultimate fix and a makeup artist's dream. Their new waterproof Full Throttle Lipstick covers lips with super saturated matte color and features a unique bullet that has a beveled edge for lining, filling and perfecting your pout. They come in 12 shades.
I tried Trickster, a beautiful orchid purple. I love how much pigment there is in these lipsticks. They are saturated with pigment and go on so smoothly. Lips feel amazing. And color stays on because these are waterproof. They are great for summer, stage makeup, etc. Below you can see Trickster on my lips.

  1. I need to check out this brand. I see NYX and think it's a cheap knock off of MAC but the pigment really is fabulous. I'm looking forward to trying the lipsticks.
