So NYX recently released a bunch of new stuff, and they’re all so amazing! It can be hard to know what to buy when a brand launches a gazillion things at once, so I wanted to share five items from them that are either new in general or just new to my collection.
1. NYX Epic Ink Liner Review: Kat von D Tattoo Liner Dupe?
I’ve been wanting the Kat von D Tattoo Liner for a while, but I haven’t purchased it yet because I just don’t know about buying an eyeliner for $20. Anyway, I’ve been looking for a dupe, but every affordable eyeliner seems to be felt-tip. If you’re wondering what’s so special about the Tattoo liner, it has a brush tip instead of a felt tip. So you can imagine how ecstatic I was when NYX finally launched an eyeliner with a brush tip, and at a much more pocket-friendly $8 price tag. This makes doing a winged liner effortless. I love it and I need backups! This is honestly one of my favourite purchases of the year so far.
2. NYX Duochromatic Illuminating Powder Synthetica Review: Nars Taj Mahal Dupe?
NYX launched a bunch of duochrome highlighters. There are several other shades but I picked Synthetica because it is the most black-girl friendly shade available. Synthetica is a bright orange with a gold shift. It is so beautiful, and it looks very flattering on my dark skin. It reminds me a lot of Nars Taj Mahal. I think Synthetica might be a little lighter in the pan, but I feel like once shades this similar are blended out on the cheeks, there’s really not much of a difference between them.
3. NYX Ombre Blush Review /NYX Feel The Heat Ombre Blush Swatch
I’ve been looking for a good matte orange blush for a while now, so when Natalie of DoSblog recommended this, I ordered it, and I love it. It has a matte orange blush, a gold highlighter that seems to be over spray, and you can mix the two for a peachy golden shade if you like. All I really care about is the matte orange blush part, and that’s what I will stick to.
If orange blush is not your thing, there are several other shades.
4. NYX Lip Lingerie Review /NYX Lip Lingerie Beauty Mark Swatch
So I finally tried the famous lip lingerie, and I actually like it. The formula dries down to a slightly tacky finish, but it doesn’t bother me. I much prefer that to a drying lipstick. It’s an okay formula. I got the shade Beauty Mark which is a really pretty nude on dark skin.
5. NYX Vivid Brights Liner
Last but not least is the Vivid Bright Liners. These are eyeliners that come in different bright colours, for the more adventurous makeup lovers. I’ve never actually left my house wearing this, because I thought this shade (Escape) was the yellow shade, only for it to arrive and I saw it was a pale green. The woes of poor research and online shopping. I think I will pick it up in blue, red, or yellow. Those are shades I will actually wear happily. But colour aside, the formula is nice. Pigmented and quick drying, it’s very easy to use.
