I love a good cheap and cheerful make up haul and discovering new brands that don’t cost a leg whenever I want to buy a new product. I recently decided to buy a few bits from NYX through ASOS (cheeky student discount) and overall I was not disappointed.
Eyebrow pencil in charcoal. So this pencil actually broke the first time I used it (lol) and the colour isn’t the best for my brows (are anyone’s eyebrows grey?) but apart from those two mishaps this isn’t a bad product for the price. It goes on pretty smoothly and is thin enough to get a good shape. The brush at the end is super soft so blends the product nicely to get the definition everybody is after. If I buy this again I’ll go for a darker colour and try not to crush it with my face.
Sculpt and highlight face duo in caramel/vanilla. I am in love this product! I bought it online which is always a risk with choosing the right colour but I got this spot on. I use the lighter colour under my eyes on top of a MAC concealer to brighten the area and the darker colour under my cheek bones and around my forehead to contour. The liquid blends really smoothly with a blender or brush and stays literally all day.
Jumbo eye pencil in gold and sparkle nude. These little babies are incredible for lining either the bottom or top eyelid or for the inner corners (so yeah pretty much the whole eye). I chose nude colours for a little glitter effect and they do wonders for brightening dull eyes. I will probably end up buying all like 15 colours. I’m not sure if they’re supposed to be sharpened as they’re plastic which is a shame as there isn’t a whole load of product there. I’ve read that people have tried and had a hard time so I have that to look forward to!
Matte finish setting spray. Definitely sets my makeup, definitely not matte. The spray makes my makeup last much longer than usual but I haven’t noticed any mattifying effect. Very simple product and I will probably buy the primer spray to go with it as well.
Which NYX products do you recommend? I may just go ahead and buy the whole range!
