My Favorite NYX Products

NYX is one of my favorite drugstore makeup brands. They have amazing products at a super affordable price. On a daily basis I find myself incorporating at least one NYX product into my makeup look, so I wanted to share what my favorite NYX products are. Here it is:


NYX HD Finishing Powder in Banana. I love this powder for setting my under eye concealer and also brightening up areas on my face. The powder is super brightening and sets my concealer really well. I like that it is in a large compact unlike the Anastasia Beverly Hills Banana Powder that is in a bulky palette. 

NYX Color Correcting Concealer Palette. This palette is awesome for color correcting. It has every color you need to cancel out any blemishes and discoloration you have. The green is great for around your nose and other red areas. I like using a mix of the yellow and orange to cancel out my dark circles. Usually creams can be drying and flakey on me, but these are super creamy. 

NYX Nude Matte Shadow in Blame it on Midnight. I don't love NYX eyeshadows. When I bought this one, I also purchased 5 other ones and they all got returned. I didn't love the pigmentation, the glittery ones were chunky and dry, and none of them were worth keeping in my collection. But, I kept Blame it on Midnight and it is one of my favorite soft brown crease shades. It is completely matte, yet it is pigmented and blendable. I use it almost every time I do my eyeshadow. 

NYX Blushes. Unlike their eyeshadows, NYX Blushes are amazing. I only own two, Mocha and Terracotta. For a while there, I was using Mocha everyday. It is a beautiful mauve pink that looks amazing on my tan skin. It's a satin so it gives a super natural finish. Terracotta is a very bronzy shade that looks great all over the cheeks for a bronzing glow, or used to warm up the face. 

NYX Tinted Brow Mascara. If you are looking for one-step brows, look no further. This Tinted Brow Mascara holds your eyebrows in place all day without flaking, and also darkens them up to make them look fuller. It looks like you have naturally amazing eyebrows. This is a much cheaper alternative to the Benefit and Anastasia Beverly Hills tinted brow gels. 

NYX Micro Brow Pencil. If you don't want to buy the famous Anastasia Brow Wiz, get this. Seriously. Although the color selection is different, you can probably find a shade that still works. Not only do these look almost identical, they perform almost the same too. Neither of them are very creamy, which helps with control, and they both wear beautifully thoughout the day. I recently ran out of my ABH Brow Wiz, and I have been using the Micro Brow Pencil as a replacement because I am not ready to part with $21. I can't tell a difference, honestly. 

NYX Butter Glosses. I love the NYX Butter Glosses. They smell amazing, they have a great color range, they aren't sticky at all, they have amazing color payoff, and they are extremely affordable.  You can't get any better than that. They are probably my favorite lip glosses on the market. 

NYX Liquid Crystal Liner in Crystal Champagne. I think glitter liners are so fun to play with. My favorite way to wear them is paired with a natural eye look. They add something cute and different. Urban Decay makes popular glitter liners, but the NYX liners are no different. Save your money and stay with NYX.
