I have heard a lot of great things about NYX Cosmetics through other blogs and I really wanted to get my hands on some. In England you can buy NYX products easily online or in selected Next stores. I decided to visit my local Next store so that I could see the range of colours available.
NYX Cosmetics has a large range of make-up products available as well as other items including tools which are ideal for make-up artists including artist chairs and travel cases.
I have chosen two products to review which I think are make-up bag staples.
The NYX powder blush is the item I was most excited to try from the collection. I picked the colour Rose Garden, it's a lovely fresh pink which is perfect for a Spring make-up look.
The blush has a soft gold shimmer which gives your cheeks a healthy glow.
The blush has a soft, light consistency and is highly pigmented so a little goes a long way. It feels light on the skin and last a long time. The size of the blush pot is ideal as its small and compact so doesn't take up much room in your make-up bag.
Priced at only £6.00 the blush is great value for money and the quality defiantly compares well against top brands.
I haven't tried a make-up setting spray before but I have been meaning to pick one up for a while. Priced at only £8.00 I thought this one was a good product to start with. The bottle is a handy 60ml size so isn't too bulky in your make-up bag.
Holding the spray about 30cm away from the face gives you a light, even coverage of the product. When sprayed the product feels light and refreshing. It doesn't have any distinctive scent which is great because I am not keen on scented make-up products. The spray doesn't feel sticky on the skin at all and is hardly noticeable.
The spray keeps your make-up in place all day so it's ideal if you are out and about all day and don't have time to do touch ups. Defiantly a product worth having in your make-up bag.
