My Current NYX Collection tried and tested and my WISHLIST!!


Hi beauts,

Our final makeup review for this week is the ‘must have’ brand at the minute NYX Cosmetics. NYX is a brand so many bloggers are talking about lately, It seems to be the hard to find, hard to get products at the min and you're lucky if you can firstly find a stand but then if you can actually find what you're looking for.

My NYX collection as you can see is tiny! I only started getting products a few months back after a chance visit to a local chemist near my office in Naas (Chemist in Sallins) one lunchtime and spotted the stand almost full! There are stockists lists going around so I'll try attach one to this post, I don't know how up to date they are but hopefully you can find one close to you. I do know you can buy off Sam Mccauley’s website so that will also help :)

I wasn't actually sure what I wanted to buy when I first saw the stand so I went back after a little around other blogs and picked up the Jumbo Eye pencil in Milk and the Wonder pencil. In a Chic Treat Club box last year we were treated to a pink NYX blusher (October box) and most recently after trying three different chemists/shops at home in Waterford, it was in Shaws that I got a lipstick, butter gloss and another blusher. When I went to write this post I found a brown NYX shadow in my eye drawer and remembered I had bought this to use to fill in my brows ages ago. So let’s have a look at them…

Brown Shadow, Taupe blush, Pink Blush, Milk pencil, Wonder pencil, Creme Brulee, Thalia

As you can see the swatches are amazing so I'm just gonna break down the products for you all…

NYX Shadow- This medium brown colour shadow I use to fill in my brows, I used to use it all the time so I have used half the pan already but this is with daily use so it really lasts ages.

Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk- This is well loved by MUA’s and beauty bloggers everywhere, perfect for highlighting the brow and the inner corner of the eye.

Blusher (Taupe & Pink )- I love the Pink Blusher it’s so bright and fun, it really brightens up any makeup look and as for Taupe then it’s perfect for contouring on my paler days. It’s a softer brown then the usual orange browns you use when you have tan on. Taupe again was recommended by beauty bloggers, I believe this was from Sinead in The Beautiful Truth, if you want a woman who knows her NYX then so check out her posts. Another great page to look up in relation to NYX is From Matte to Metallic, the girls are brilliant at finding dupe products and posting them which leads me to my next product in my collection.

Thalia Lipstick- A must have according to the fab Sinead from The Beautiful Truth!! I searched two chemists and then had the lady in Shaws check their drawer under the stand for this when I was home and I finally got one. It’s a beautiful nude shade lippy, meant to be the same as MAC Brave & MAC Modesty so it’s a double dupe that’s just brilliant!!

Wonder Pencil- This was a bit of a random buy for me I must admit, I think it was the fact it was being sold as a triple product that meant I wanted it so much. It’s meant to be a concealer, a nude liner for your eyes and also a lip liner. I haven’t tried it out as a lip liner yet as I think it’s gonna be too light to work for me but deffo as an eye liner to brighten tired eyes this is amazing!!

Crème Brulee Butter Gloss- This again was highly recommend and I am not really a lip gloss kinda person I think my days of my hair sticking to my lips are over so I was a bit reluctant to buy this. The texture I do find slightly on the stick side, I think I am just more of a lipstick person but the colour is lovely. I tend to wear this over my nude lip liner in Spice by MAC and it looks really nice. 

My current NYX wishlist includes a few dupes:

Power lipstick- MAC Snob
Terracotta blush- MAC Gingerly 
Summer Love lipstick- MAC Hue
Mauve Liner
Peekaboo Liner

I will keep an eye out for these and just trying to find somewhere that stocks them all is unreal, Mauve liner is not to be found so if anyone reading this can get their hands on these for me, let me know and I'll happily send you the money, I am losing the will to live in search of these beauties!!

I hope you enjoyed the post, as I said my poor collection is so small but it's a plan to build it right up. If you know of any other dupes be sure to let me know. The ladies from From Matte to Metallic, Ciara & Jen are awesome for their shoutouts!!

Here are some current stockists I found on Eat Sleep Chic Blog:
