If you saw my Insta Stories before Christmas, you’ll have seen the huge amount of NYX Professional Make-up goodies that were delivered to me. I was so incredibly grateful for the chance to try SO many of their wonderful products, especially because their Lip Vaults are giving everyone (me included!) ALL the feels at the moment! I mean, what make-up addict doesn’t LOVE an entire vault full of her favourite lippies?! With so much in their standard ranges, and so many new releases before Christmas, there’s been a whole host of things to try out. But I have created a definitive list to the must have essentials that you need from NYX this season…
NYX Professional Make-up are one of those brands that everyone has. You may have a few staple products, or a whole collection full of their goodies….but either way, almost every beauty lover will have something from NYX in their collection. (If not, this post is a great place to start!) I think this is because of two main reasons: the product quality and the price. You get MUA standard products, that perform really well – for drugstore prices. It’s a win/win all round. So, which products am I recommending most this season from NYX? Well read on my fellow beauty lovers!
NYX Professional Make-up Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault II (£65)
Okay, let’s all take a moment to drool over this one shall we…
Yep, this is the thing of make-up loving DREAMS isn’t it? A whole vault FULL of everyday matte lipsticks that will suit every type of skin tone. The vault contains 36 – T.H.I.R.T.Y S.I.X – mini lipsticks. Which works out at £1.80 each. You can’t go wrong with a NYX lippie for £1.80, can you? But what I like about this vault, is that the sades are the soft shades. You’ve got nudes on all colour spectrum’s, pinks, rose tones, browns and a few slightly bolder tones too. Meaning there really is a huge amount of colour choice for everyone – regardless of what your lip colour preference is.
For me the NYX Matte Lip Creams will always hold a special place in my heart because they were the fist ever matte liquid lipsticks that I tried. They’re one of the few that are non-drying too, so they’re comfortable to wear with a rich colour payoff. You only need one swipe and you’ve got the most gorgeous colour, not like some other brands which are streaky and hard to build up.
My favourite shades are Miami, Milan and Sao Paulo because they offer the most gorgeous colour that I love to wear. But the nudes in the collection…wowzers, you’ll never need to buy a nude lipstick again!
Exclusive to Selfridges, make sure you snap the vault up before it’s gone – because you’ll regret it if you don’t!
Also worth checking out is the fantastic Liquid Suede Cream Vault which is also £65 and features a collection of the Suede finish liquid lipsticks, in a variety of colours. There’s more bold colours and unusual shades in this one, so if matte’s aren’t your thing, then this vault is for you!
NYX Professional Make-up In Your Element WIND Palette (£25)
When I saw the In Your Element collection, I was blown away. I love a good themed make-up collection and this one has three different eyeshadow palettes based on Earth, Wind and Fire elements. Each palette has 12 shades representative of that theme, and Wind is perfect for those cool-toned eye looks that are great at this time of year. The shades in this one are perfect for smokey eyes too, with lots of sultry colours and tones and some lighter metallic finishes to give that lid the pop of bright to contrast a deeper crease.
NYX Professional Make-up In Your Element EARTH Palette (£25)
I couldn’t not include the Earth palette from the same range because the shades give me all the feels. The colours inside are a mix of burnt orange, browns, golds and earth shades. There’s a mix of shimmer finishes and matte tones too, with a nice few extremely pigmented shades to seriously impress. I knew I loved this palette before I tried it but now that I have, I love it even more and I am pretty sure it’s going to be one of my top palettes for this year.
The thing which impresses me about the NYX shadows is how blendable they are, I find them really easy to work with and for someone who creates a smokey eye look every day, these shadow make it easy for that sultry blend. It’s been so popular that it’s sold out almost everywhere now, BUT Selfridges are the only place I could find still with stock, so grab it HERE before it sells out.
NYX Professional Make-up #GlitterGoals (£13.99)
Now this is one set I think every girl needs in her Winter make-up kit. I am obsessed with glittery eyeshadow looks, especially at this time of year because it really perks things up. This fabulous value #GlitterGoals set contains the Glitter Primer – which just won’t budge, and three glitter shades (there’s a cool toned and warm toned set available.)
Apply the primer first, wait and then apply glitter with a brush – the pigmentation is INTENSE. It seriously does pop and for the value, the glitter colour is fantastic. I happen to have the primer and two of the glitters already, so this little set is waiting in my make-up drawers as a back up for when I run out, because seriously girls – you can never have too much glitter in your life!
So those are my top must-have’s for this season from NYX, I am swooning over them all and can’t get enough of the palettes and vaults especially. I think every single one of these goodies will make your day, and honestly, who wouldn’t want some of these in their collection!
