New make up pops on my desk most days and I absolutely love exploring unknown territory of a brand that I have never used before. Such is the case of NYX makeup which I have been using this week.
Named after the ancient Greek goddess who ruled the night, professional Los Angeles based colour cosmetics brand NYX Cosmetics uniquely offers a vast collection of every day basics and on-trend shades in addition to special-occasion makeup. Rich pigments and lasting finishes in products is what places. NYX in a class of its own and distinguishes the line as a leader in the worldwide color cosmetics industry. With origins in the US, NYX is a global brand now available in Ireland in pharmacies nationwide. So what are my favourite products from the range?
Propel My Eyes (€10.99) is a super mascara that soaks all your lashes just enough for a very fluttery finish. I like mascaras that are too black and not too wet and this one ticks both those boxes. The NYX makeup Matte Lipstick (€7.49) has a really strong pigment; my favourite colour has to be Merlot for it’s pink persuasion with a hint of reddish tint. Perfect against natural make up to make your lips pop. What I think will be the hero product is the Jumbo Eye Pencil (€4.99), Rocky Mountain Green is a great colour addition and even by just adding a line to your eye with some mascara will make for a fresh and summery make up look. The Auto Eye Brow Pencil is a total winner in my books with it’s dual ends; the roll up pencil at one end and brush at the other. Perfect for travelling (and speaking of travelling you can read my blog on luggage here too!).
