One of my friends,Jenny Hutt (also a makeup client) gave me the opportunity to go through a giant duffle bag of NYX products last week. Wow is all I can say! What a fun 3 days I had going through each and every product and color. We discovered the line together at a book launch for How to look expensive by Andrea Pomerantz Lustig about 2 years ago. We fell in love right away. Jenny and I started to incorporate NYX's products into our makeup routine right away. Foundation, blushes, bronzer and lip colors.
When I told a couple of my makeup artist friends about NYX - and how great the line was - they were hooked as well. We all have become obsessed and love their foundations, lip glosses and cream blushes.
When Jenny handed me the bag to play with and go through, to find her colors and colors for her daughter and niece, it was my pleasure! Added bonus I got to check out the new spring 2014 line!!!
The Butter lipsticks are incredible! The texture is exactly what you would think: melt on your lips perfection with the perfect pop of color. Smooth and vibrant color minus the grease. Perfect for someone who is looking for the idea of a gloss without the tackiness of a gloss. Insert Linda Silver joke: like butta!!!
NYX matte lipstick has been my go to for my clients that want that Hollywood glam lip with out the hefty prices tag. Each color amazing. Light nude mattes to rich reds and plums. The texture of the matte lipstick is creamy with a fully matte dry down. The staying power is truly unreal. Brides have told me days after their wedding that they never reapplied their lipstick!
The baked shadows are so much fun!! Sheer color with just the right amount of shimmer. The baked shadows can be used wet or dry! Wet for high pigment color and dry for that sheer tint of shadow. You can't go wrong with any of the huge array of colors. I love the blues, grays and the golden browns and bronzes.
NYX new invincible foundation is a full coverage matte foundation, great for the oiliest of skin. Great range of colors for every skin tone. Oil free, very light and airy on skin. great for someone who doesn't like the feeling of makeup but needs/wants the fullest of coverage.
NYX tinted moisturizer is one of the sheerest tinted moisturizers I have used. An amazing product for someone that is looking for a dewy, hydrating glow. Definitely the type of product you can use as an everyday go to makeup. Very light coverage with just a touch of color.
NYX mascaras are amazing! Lush Lashes is a full collection of 7 different types of fragrance free mascara. All are jet black and not clumpy at all. The brushes are full to thin depending on your preference. You choose the type depending on your lashes needs and your lashes wants!
NYX now offers color mascara! Blue, purple and brown! Match up your eye color to enhance your eye color with theses great tinted mascaras.
- I was once told by a makeup artist a long time ago that, " There is no, NO or Can't in makeup". I listened to that advice and give that advice to all of my clients. Makeup is to enhance and make you feel great. Makeup is always an added bonus even if it is a swipe of a blush or gloss. Makeup should be fun and playful and NYX definitely is FUN!
