Brand Focus | NYX Cosmetics

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you would know that I have a strong affection for NYX as they are by far one of my favourite drugstore brands out there. The quality of their products are just top notch for the price you're paying, and they are such a loved brand by many in the beauty community. Here are just a handful of some of my best-loved products by NYX that I'll be sharing with you in today's brand focus.

Metallic lips are very on trend right now, and the Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Beige Pearl is a gorgeous shimmery nude-gold that is perfect for creating that effect. You can totally wear this over bare lips or over the top of your favourite lipstick to give it more of a shimmery glossy finish. I love the way it gives you the appearance of fuller lips and the formula of these glosses never feel sticky or thick, so they are very comfortable to wear. If you are a lip gloss fanatic, I definitely recommend giving these a try for yourself!

A blush that gives your cheeks that true pinched hue is of course Pinched from their Powder Blush range. They are SO soft in texture, the colour pay off is fantastic and they blend like an absolute dream. A little goes a very long way so you don't want to be too heavy handed with these blushes at all. I also like that it's not completely matte and adds a lovely subtle sheen to the cheeks. I have been meaning to pick up Taupe for the longest time as well, because I've read that it's the BEST contour shade for fair skin in giving you the perfect cool toned shadow to make your cheekbones pop. 

Their Lip Lingerie liquid lipsticks are incredibly popular (especially with matte lip lovers), and I personally think they're very much worth the hype. The mousse-like consistency is very creamy yet lightweight on the lips, and it applies so smoothly with ease. I don't find it to be uncomfortably drying in the slightest for a matte lipstick and to my surprise, it doesn't flake or budge so NYX, you have done extremely well!

You guys know I am all about the matte base, and I have only just recently re-discovered my love for this little gem of a powder. It's the Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation that I like to use as an all over setting powder (I've never been too fond of powder foundations), and it helps to keep my makeup shine-free and looking flawless all day long without it looking overly well, flat. The quality of this powder is just lovely - it's velvety soft and makes your skin feel smooth and never cakey. 

If there's one makeup product I adore above all else, it's lipstick. I am a big fan of the Creamy Round Lipstick line, particularly the shade Minimalism which is a flattering mauve-pink that is very 'my lips but better'. I like to wear this shade for simple day time makeup looks or if I'm going for a heavy smokey eye for the evening. It offers great pigmentation and the extra creamy formula makes it comfortable to wear and really moisturises the lips. There an abundance of shades to choose from so you are bound to find a shade that suits you and best of all, they are so inexpensive you just cannot go wrong!
