NYX Tango With Bronzing Stix | Merengue Flush & Bronzy Lambada

NYX Bronzing Stix1 NYX Tango With Bronzing Stix | Merengue Flush & Bronzy Lambada

If there’s one place I most appreciate shimmer and shine, it’s the cheeks. And while I typically gravitate towards satin textures and subtle glow, some days I just want shimmer. When the mood strikes, I’ll often reach for the NYX Tango with Bronzing Stix. These stick-style creams impart high shine that work as blush and illuminator in one. I’ve had these for over a year and love them. I noticed they were no longer available on NYX’s website, so I wanted to post about them while they’re still available elsewhere. CONTINUE READING…

Quick Cat Eyes: NYX Eye Markers

NYX Marker Eye Liners Quick Cat Eyes: NYX Eye Markers

Maybe it’s a throwback to my inner Crayola-loving child, but these marker-style liners like NYX Super Fat Eye Marker and NYX Super Skinny Eye Marker have always intrigued me. A product that makes getting the definition of liquid liner as easy as drawing with a marker… sounds promising, right?

NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss

NYX LIP GLOSS WITH MEGA SHINE 2 NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss

If you have pigmented lips like me, you know it can be hard to find glosses that actually show up. All through high school and for the first year or two of college, I was a lip gloss fanatic. So many times I’d find a great color, but it would just look clear on my lips. NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss was one of the first glosses I ever tried with enough pigment to change my lip color.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

NYX Matte Lip Creams 1 NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams When it comes to lip products, traditional lipsticks have never worked well for me. Even moisturizing formulas tend to dry out my lips and they never last more than an hour or two. For everyday, tinted lip balms are my lip product of choice (and usually, it’s Burt’s Bees Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil). So, when I heard about NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams - and their promise of long-lasting silky matte color – I knew they might be for me. I tried one, loved it, and by now I’ve managed to end up with five shades: Stockholm, London, Tokyo, San Paulo, and Antwerp. CONTINUE READING…
