Hi everyone! I wanted to share with you all a few new NYX products that I’ve been using lately and have really been enjoying.
1. NYX HD Studio Photogenic Primer
This is definitely my NYX favorite product. I mix about a half pump of this primer in with my foundation (Georgio Armani Liquid Silk) and find that it gives my skin a luminous effect while helping my foundation stay all day. My only word is caution is to use less than you think you need. A little goes a long way with this stuff and it can give a white cast if applied to heavily.
2. NYX Jumbo Pencil in Iced Mocha
I love using these jumbo pencils as an eyeshadow base. They don’t pull on the sensitive skin around my eys when applied, last all day without creasing, and really give any eyeshadow that’s layered on top a vibrant pop. I’ve also used this pencil to line my lower eyelid. The subtle shimmer helps open up my eyes and isn’t quite as harsh as my typical black eyeliner.
3. NYX HD Studio Photogenic Grinding Blush in Apricot
This blush is a super pretty soft pink and gives me a nice rosy glow. I go really light when applying this blush as I’ve found that a little goes a long way. Just a light sweep with my MAC 129 brush and I look like I got 8 hours of sleep!
One of the things I like most about NYX Cosmetics is that they’re a big supporter of YouTube beauty vloggers. NYX Cosmetics has an annual Beauty Vlogger of the Year competition where anyone can submit makeup entries to win the coveted NYX FACE Award which includes $25,000, consultations with pro makeup artists, and a year’s supply of NYX Cosmetics. It’s an amazing opportunity for those who love makeup to get their foot in the door of this competitive industry.
The contest is already down to the last 12 contestants. Check out their looks — the theme is futuristic alien and there are some really creative entries!
