NYX UK is Back! | Haul & Review


NYX is one of those drugstore brands the US beauty gurus love. Whilst it has been sort-of available in the UK before, it’s never been this accessible as you can now find it on both Feel Unique and Boots. Of course I had to place a little order and now I’ve tried out the products for a couple of weeks, I’m ready to report back.

NYX Brow Tame and Frame Pomade in Expresso | £5.50

When I saw what looked to be an ABH Dipbrow Pomade dupe for a fiver, I had to snap it up. I chanced it and ordered the shade Expresso, which turns out to work very well for me (though it is a tiny bit warmer than I would usually go for). I apply this with my Zoeva Winged Liner brush and honestly the formula is essentially identical to the Anastasia, in my opinion! The only difference is the shades, as the ABH one does come in more colours and NYX's shades do seem to be on the warm side. Having said that, the £10 price difference makes this an astounding bargain.

Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo | £5.50

Cautiously, I only picked up one shade of these so I could decide if I liked it! I didn't go for the obvious choice, either in terms of my usual taste or in terms of the shades that are hyped-up. San Paulo is a gorgeous deep, but vibrant, pink. 'Lip Cream' is pretty spot-on for me, as this is beautifully creamy and apply so easily and so opaquely. It doesn't feel drying on the lips at all but still has incredible staying power.

Butter Gloss in Angel Food Cake | £5

I have never been a fan of lipgloss but NYX's are so insanely hyped, I couldn't help but pick one up. Angel Food Cake is a lovely pinky-mauve nude. It doesn't feel too sticky or gloopy on the lips (though the wear-time isn't great) and just adds a subtle hint of colour. I still wouldn't reach for a gloss over a different type of lip product, but this has definitely stopped me from writing them off completely.

Matte Lipstick in Euro Trash | £6.50

I hate the name of this lipstick, however I love the formula. I'd almost say it's more of a satin finish as it's very creamy and comfortable on the lips and has the tiniest sheen to it. It's a gorgeous medium-brown nude shade with a tiny hint of mauve that's somewhere between MAC Faux and MAC Velvet Teddy. I don't find it lasts as long on my lips as a 'true' matte but I can definitely deal with that.

Jumbo Eye Pencil in French Fries | £5

NYX bills this as a 2-in-1 eyeliner and eyeshadow, and being a cream product junkie I had to pick one up. The again bizarrely-named French Fries is a brown-bronze shimmer that's my kind of shade. Although it works as an eyeshadow, it is a tiny bit less creamy than I'd like so I do definitely prefer it as an eyeliner. In the bottom waterline it's perfect with a Autumnal brown, bronze or gold nude eye, and so much softer than black.

High Definition Blush in Amber | £5.50

I've saved the best for last! My absolute highlight from this haul, by a long shot, is this blusher. It doesn't look like much in the pan but there's something about this shade that seems to bring my face to life. It's a matte deep peachy-ginger shade that adds that perfect amount of everyday colour. I can't believe how amazingly this applies and lasts for £5.50! I will definitely be after some more shades soon.




Did you order anything from NYX? Do you recommend any  products I should check out next?

  4. I'm really not a fan of lip glosses either, I can't stand the stuff! I do want to try the soft matte lip creams though, it looks like the packaging of a gloss with the pay off of a lipstick.

  15. I'll definitely be trying out the eyebrow pomade when my Anastasia version runs out, I'm definitely always game for something that saves me £10. I bought the matte setting spray and really like it so far, I need to try it out for a bit longer before I can decide whether I like it as much as the Urban Decay sprays. I really want to try out their blushers and contour palette next. x

  18. I love NYX! Oddly, though it's in a lot of stores they are often sold out of 75% of there stock, so I end up ordering online too. I love there blushes, actually I don't think there is anything I've tried that hasn't been good! Euro Trash is so pretty. <3

  27. I recently picked up some nyx glosses too, that san paulo is so deceiving though I thought it'd be more warm and deeper as it looked in the packaging but it is a bit too bright for my liking, none the less the formula is amazing. But I'm loving the shade of the matt lipstick and blush. Great picks.

  31. Aw I'm so glad that in the UK you have better access to getting NYX! It's such a great brand with so many products. I tend to find that some of the products are a tad bit overpriced for drugstore but their lip items are really great. San Paulo looks like a beautiful color!
