It was only last year that I really started using NYX Cosmetics. My best friend Vanessa introduced me to it and from that moment, I was addicted. I don’t think I have ever loved so many products from one brand, well apart from MAC & Nars of course 😉 I first tried their Soft Matte Lip Creams and then moved onto their Setting Spray followed by their Pore Filler. For those of you that don’t know, you can buy NYX in Boots stores nationwide. It’s a very affordable brand and won’t break your bank account. Well that’s if you don’t buy the entire stand, which I sometimes do and later realise I have spent 150euro.
This is not a sponsored blog post by NYX or anything, this is merely me sharing my love of all things NYX with you all. You might have noticed me wearing NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams with my uniform. I wear the red ‘Amsterdam’ and nude ‘Stockholm’. I can put them on at 4am in the morning and they don’t budge even after eating.
So what are my TOP 10 favourite products? Here we go………
No Filter Finishing Powder – Amazing powder that leaves your skin feeling flawless.
Wonder Stick – Highlight and contour with these little beauty. Really creamy and blends so easily on the face. Comes in 6 different shades.
Soft Matte Lip Cream – I CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT THESE! Literally have them in about 15 shades. I don’t even use lip liner with these, they are that good. They don’t dry out my lips which is what a lot of matte lip creams can do. Comes in so many different shades so you’re bound to find a colour that suits.
HD Photogenic Concealer Wand – These wand will cover all your imperfections, discoloration and under-eye circles. They have even more shades now to suit a wider variety of skin tones. Perfect for concealing my lack of sleep when I wake up at 3am.
Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator – I actually mix this with my foundation mainly when I am going out or to an event. It gives my skin the most dewy glow and I love it. It’s gorgeous on the skin on it’s own, if you have a spray tan or tan on your face too. Lasts ages too, I have mine over 6 months and feels like it’s still full.
Pore Filler – Ok so before I started using this, I was hesitant. I had some open pores that I was quite conscious of on my cheeks and I wanted to try a pore filler. I don’t use this everyday either, mainly for nights out. It leaves my makeup going on FLAWLESS and creates such a smooth finish on the face.
Setting Spray – I have only tried the MATTE version of this. I am not a huge fan of the over dewy glow. The illuminator is the most dewy that I go. It’s nearly like a slight shine with the illuminator and then the Matte Finish spray just sets your powder.
Eyebrow Gel in Brunette-Ash-Brown – Another product I was skeptical about until I tried it. I was always a powder girl when it came to my brows as I thought it was very natural but now I use this brunette-ash brown shade which is not too light but not too dark for me. I do get HD brows done regularly and then this keeps them in place in between my brow appointments. Easy to use if you have the right eyebrow brush.
Tricks of the Trade Travel Kit – I was bought this as a present last year when I started my job. It was SO HANDY. It’s got the small sizes of four of my favourite products so it’s great for travelling. I can only have a certain amount in my bag for travelling all the time so these are perfect. I just keep them in my kit bag for when I go over to London. At the moment I am only doing London overnights but this Summer I will start my long haul training and begin doing all their long-haul routes.
Blotting Paper – I keep this in my work handbag and use it nearly EVERYDAY. It’s a life saver. I have so many girls hooked on this now. It literally takes so much shine off, instantly. One of my absolute must haves on this list.
So there you have it. My favourites and all are so worth it. You can also buy all these products on:
