2014: NYX Fall Edition- Makeup essentials

I came across NYX about a year ago at price smart foods with a wide selection of colors for eyes, lips, and face. The brand emphasizes on the design of the packaging- easy to find in your makeup drawers. My favorite product has been their eye shadow palette! The very first one I received was called NYX Love in Florence. The five colors were glittery pastel pink, strawberry pink, charcoal, matte grey, and glitter gold. Their eye shadow is known to be highly pigmented and last the entire night (after applying their primer before putting it on). The Stormy Skies Eye shadow Palette is my favorite of the batch. It consists of neutral, earthy tones with a few eye-popping colors. 

Perfect for a night out!

My least favorite would be the eyeliner pencil. With an oily/combination skin, my face gets shiny mid-day before work ends. On the first few days of applying the eyeliner (both liquid & crayon), they smudge to the under eyes. Forming what looked like under eye circles. But for those with normal skin, this could be ideal for everyday use. 

The products shown above include the following:
  • Stormy Skies Eyeshadow Palette
  • Two Timer Kohl Pencil Liner/ Crayon Kohl
  • NYX butter gloss- BLG14 Madeline
  • NYX butter lipstick (older packaging)
  • NYX Angel Veil- Skin Perfecting Primer
