I think the UK makeup scene is a little NYX-crazy right now. With the launch into Selfridges earlier this year and more recently, Boots, this U.S budget makeup brand is more accessible than ever and it’s offering the discerning makeup lover a little bit more ; dupes, pro makeup artist type products, and outrageous colours that have not really been available to us on the high street up until now.
The price point is super competitive and I think , great value for you buck with lipsticks starting @ £5 , great quality concealers at just £5.50 and eye palettes start around £7.50. My only gripe with NYX so far is the actual counters….which I have only visited 2 of regulary so far ; the one in Selfridges London and the one in Boots Liverpool Street station. They always seem to be a right old mess with no staff for the majority of times I have been, limited testers and it’s pretty hard to find the actual products you want amongst the mess. It must be doing pretty well as a brand so NYX…start employing more staff for your counters in the UK, and don’t neglect us!! WHEN are those damn lip lingeries launching onto the counters by the way?! I keep checking back and they only seem to be online….
I love this quick and easy makeup look I have done here, which was using pretty much ALL NYX products and this lip colour is my current favourite at the moment. I actually think I prefer the lip creams over the lip suedes as they don’t seem to dry your lips as much and the colour selection is so good. This shade is ‘Morocco’ and it teams really well with a soft eye as it’s so vivid and showpiece.
I also wanted to do a small giveaway with all the key products from NYX which I have used in this makeup look which are all listed below. So enter to be in with a chance to win this lovely lot and get some NYX love all over your face!
