I have always been intrigued with NYX products even from before. Few years back, NYX was not readily available here in the UK as how it is now. It was so difficult to get hold of the brand as I am usually left with no option but to pay a ridiculous amount for shipping fee coming from the US. However, now is a different story as it is available in Boots, their own NYX store and online excluding the high amount of shipping fee.
Here is a little NYX cosmetics haul, I have picked up:
NYX tame and frame tinted brow pomade
NYX sculpt and highlight face duo
NYX color correcting powder in banana
NYX eyebrow pencils in dark brown and medium brown
NYX soft matte lip cream in Copenhagen
NYX born to glow liquid illuminator
NYX jumbo eye pencil in milk
NYX lingerie lipstick in teddy and ruffle trim
NYX lingerie in teddy and ruffle trim- I have been so obsessed with liquid lipstick lately. I’m sure you girls can relate. There are so many good ones out in the market and I just want them all! I’m so happy with these two shades that I picked up. I feel like they are the ones that I wanted as I was going for a warm rich brown and a nude shade that won’t wash me out. However, I must admit I did struggle to decide which ones to purchase as I feel like there are a lot of shades that are very similar. At some point when I swatched them, I couldn’t tell the difference between the three shades from far away (baby doll, lace detail and satin ribbon).
These are the swatches for the two shades I picked up, as you can see they are both gorgeous!
Color correcting powder- I love this one! I have used other banana powders like Ben Nye previously, which is much more expensive than this NYX one. Surprisingly, I feel like it works the same for me. I usually apply this to set my concealer and it does brighten up the eye area. Some people also use this to set their foundation.
Sculpt and highlight- I am liking this so far as it does a good job in contouring my face. I literally put the tiniest amount and it works perfectly well for me. I like the creamy texture of it and how easy it is to blend. The problem with the one I picked up is the highlighter does not match my skin tone. It is super light on my skin and I struggle to make it work. I am yet to find a way as to how I can use the lighter shade.
Liquid illuminator- I am not sure if I like this one just yet. The one I picked up has a pink tone to it. It is nice as it gives a luminous glow but the thing I’m unsure about is the shade. I usually tend to layer it with a powder highlighter just to tone down the pinkness. I have read reviews and people have mentioned that they love it and use it on its own. So perhaps it is just either my skin tone or personal preference on how I want my highlight to look like.
Eyebrow pencils- I love these and yes both shades! They are both repurchases as I have been using them for few years already. I feel like I am in between shades of the dark and medium brown but it is perfect when I combine them together. I love how it gives me a natural-looking brow.
Jumbo eye pencil- This eye pencil especially in shade milk has been raved about few years back within the beauty community. I have never tried it until now. It does a good job on making eyeshadows more vibrant and it can also be used for a little bit of highlighting in the inner corner of the eyes. However, I sometimes find that the product is not very blendable. It can pull and tug on the eyelid.
Soft matte lip cream- I believe the lipsticks from this collection were my first matte lip creams. I feel like this range started the hype for matte lipsticks. The shade I picked up recently is Copenhagen and I love it. It gives a perfect vampy vibe to any make up look.
Tinted brow pomade- This is my favourite one out of all my purchases. I have used it so much since I bought it. It is so easy to use and it glides onto the skin and eyebrow hairs. I usually combine this with the NYX eyebrow pencil.
I hope you enjoyed reading my first impression on the listed items above.

Are you a beauty consultant or cosmetic specialist
Hi, I am neither a beauty consultant or cosmetic specialist, just someone who has a passion for beauty/make up! 🙂
I really love NYX products, especially their eyeshadows and lipsticks. They’re super affordable and great quality!! xx Every time I go to Utla, I find myself picking up their products. hehe! Right now, my favorite product of theirs is the I Love You So Mochi palette. The colors are super pigmented and great for summer.
I haven’t tried out their eyebrow pencils yet though, will have to check them out! Really enjoyed reading your review. 🌸
Hi, I agree until now I still love NYX products – they are so inexpensive and most are great items. If you were able to try the eyebrow pencils, please let me know whether you liked it or not as I will be interested what other people think of it too! 🙂 xx
I heard that Nyx lipsticks are too drying… And the embelishment color makes me want it bad. So it might not be the case? Is it pigmented enough? Is it drying too much? Love the haul tho!
Thank you Neira! I have tried some NYX products that are too drying for me – most specifically the lighter shades of the matte lipsticks in bullet form. However, I find that that the NYX lingerie lipstick collection is fine for me. I now own a few shades more that the ones I have posted in this blog and they are okay so far. Though, I must admit there are better ones out in the market like Huda Beauty and Sephora lip creams!
