Brand Feature: NYX Cosmetics

NYX Philippines sent me goodies for review. I was a bit giddy receiving their products. I could still remember when I was just starting my blog years ago and NYX Round lipsticks were very popular online so I ended up buying a lot of colors from an an international website. NYX Round lipsticks boosted my blog stats because people were going to my blog for lip swatches. Sadly, my previous photos all got deleted. Pero keri lang hindi ko matake siguro na makita mga Makeup of the day photos ko before!!! hahaha Moving on, I got these makeup from NYX. 
I got the shades Fruit Punch and Hunk. When I first got hold of these lipsticks, the weather in MNL was very humid and hot back then. I even thought that these lipstick were on the verge of a meltdown because when I swatched them at the back of my hand these lipsticks felt like breaking. Good thing I did not give them away because these are very nice lipsticks!! They are a hybrid of a lipstick and balm. They looked like tinted lipbalms on my lips! They feel so light and moisturizing. They give off a glossy finish or healthy sheen on the lips.  The texture is creamy and buttery. The color pay off is surprisingly good. Most glossy lipsticks do not work on my dark lips but with these lipsticks, I can wear them on their own without any lip liners. Also, these lipsticks lasted a good three hours on my lips without retouch but sans eating/drinking. However, despite not lasting on the lips that much these lippies leave a nice pink stain the lips. These lippies do not have any scent. My only problem with these butter lipsticks is the fact that they do not work well with dry chapping lips. Because they are glossy and hydrating, they have the tendency to emphasize dryness and flaking. 
NYX Butter Lipstick in Fruit Punch, NYX Butter Lipstick in Hunk
I was surprised that both shades are wearable for everyday wear. Fruit Punch is a bright coral fuchsia pink while Hunk is a purplish hot pink. 

I got other lipsticks but decided not to open them first because I have so many lipsticks opened in my stash right now. I got NYX Full Throttle lipstick in Lethal Kiss and a NYX Suede Lipstick. Have you seen Zoella's recent bronze makeup tutorial? I am lemming for the NYX Suede Lipstick in Sandstorm because it looks so good on her!!

I also got this NYX Illuminator in the shade Chaotic. This is a nice light peachy pink shade with gold sparkles. It delivers a very beautiful glow on the skin but it does not look like a highlighter on my skin. Instead, it looks like a light blush with sheen. The color is very subtle and glowing but does not lasts long on my cheeks. On fairer skin, this illuminator will definitely show up as a blush.

The product itself is smooth and blendable. Despite having sparkles it does not feel gritty at all. 
NYX Green Tea Blotting Paper
Lastly, I tried the Green Tea Blotting Paper. This smells so good. If you are not a fan of green tea scent, this one is not for you. I do notice that this blotting paper works well for dry to normal skin. This will definitely work for those with oily to super oily skin. 

They also sent me a tinted moisturizer but the shade I got was too dark for my skin tone. I will probably be mixing it with my lighter shades of foundation to put it to good use. 

I miss trying out NYX!!! Thankfully, they are now available in the Philippines.

  1. I LOVE NYX PRODUCTS! :) I'll be waiting for the review on the tinted moisturizer (if you do decide to test it out) because I've been looking for a possible dupe for the Laura Mercier or NARS ones, since those have plenty of positive reviews across the internet. :) Speaking of dupes, I heard that Sandstorm was a dupe for Kylie's lip kit in Dolce K! :) I will always love NYX for their lip products. They probably have the best quality for drugstore products! They stay on for a good amount of time and the color selection is as wild as your imagination. :) I haven't tried the butter lipsticks yet though, I've only tried the round lipsticks and soft matte lip creams. But since I'm more of a tinted lip balm girl myself, I think I'm gonna be in love with them! :) Kudos to them too for coming out with blotting sheets! :) Are those similar to the Clean and Clear ones or do they feel like onion skin? :)

    1. Whoa!! Mas lalo ko tuloy gusto ipurchase si sandstorm ahh!!! The blotting paper is more durable than onion skin but not like the clean and clear ones.

    2. That's good enough for me hehe will check it out next time! :) Yung Sandstorm daw po dupe for the liquid lipstick alone, but if you use a lip liner under it, it looks a bit different. On its own though, you won't be able to tell side by side! :) They also say that the Liquid Suede is the best formulation for liquid lipsticks that NYX came out with so far, I'm also dying to try them! :)

  2. Quite a haul! I love the NYX Matte Lip Cream in shade Morocco! It's in bright orange. Well, actually, I somehow don't like the shade because it is definitely not for everyday use. But I love the formula and the consistency! Normally, matte lippies don't work well on my dry and chapped lips kasi pag nabalatan siya, uneven na kulay ng lips ko eh super long-wearing po yung lip creams diba? :( It was given to me by my mom but I am still wanting some of Nyx Lip Creams especially those in pinkish nude or nude shades. Sobrang kabog ng kulay eh. What's your favorite shade of NYX Matte Lip Creams, Ms. D? And I just want to ask din po how much yung blotting paper? Super need for my oily skin. :D

    1. I was addicted to antwerp and stockholm years ago!!! Thanks for sharing your fave shade. I forgot to note how much yung blotting paper eh.

  3. I've been wanting to buy NYX Butter Lipstick but it the formula is a bit off for me. Unlike the moist lipstick that Nichido has. Have you tried those lipstick, Miss Donna?

  4. I like Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Addis Ababa and Amsterdam, tried and tested ko na talaga! I also like the Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk andami uses ng product na to... and I might get the butter lippies in Licorice and Little Suzie...Nyx is one of my favorite brands that offers a lot of products at affordable prizes!

  5. Nyx started my love for matte liquid lipstick and I still repurchase Buenos Aires it is very pretty. I'm now looking forward to their ohh so lovely lingerie line (Exotic and Bedtime flirt my eyes are on you).

    As for their blotting sheet I'm super oily and Nyx blotting sheet is pure ♥!

  6. Sadly I havent tried any of their products :(

  7. Nyx Cosmetics really provides quality products and is a great dupe for High-end products ! :D
    I have the Nyx butter lipstick on shade Fruit Punch , it was really comfortable on the lips and they literally feel like a lip balm .
    Nyx "London" is the best too ! it was a great dupe for Kylie lipkit "Exposed" :)

  8. I've been wanting to try NYX butter lipstick and these butter lipsticks are literally calling out to me! Thank you for including them in your review. I, too, have dark lips which is why I prefer opaque, one-swipe type of lipsticks (to make sure they are well covered). Our current weather though has been drying my lips a lot lately so I've switched to lip products that moisturizes and keep my lips soft. The one I am using right now is LipIce Sheer Color. I love it but like I said, I got dark lips and they show through when I use LipIce. I'll definitely include NYX butter lipstick next time I shop and see what it can do for me.

  9. Yay!!! I love Nyx in Antwerp! I also use Nyx Big pencil in white color for my inner ducts during my college years! Is the blotting paper good? Currently using silk secrets from Watsons

  10. Yung first product nila na meron ako, yung NYX Lip Smacking Fun Color in Peach, di ko siya gusto :( Kasi makintab siya sobra na parang kumain ka ng mamantikang pagkain, nagmumukha akong lumamon pag suot ko yun, chubby pa naman ako haha. Tapos yung shade niya parang lipstick na pang lola. Hoping na makatry pa ako ng ibang products nila. :) Yung packaging nila reminds me of some brands. Like yung tinted moisturizer, para siyang yung Jordana Complete Cover 2-in-1 foundation and concealer, tapos yung Illuminator parang ung Nichido Final Powder :) Yung Strobe of Genius Highlighter Pallete nila, sobrang ganda ng highlighter nila at must-have daw talaga. :)

  11. Nope. I haven't. Im just wondering hong dami nyo na po cguro mga lippies sa dami ng sponsors or nabili nyo? Have you tried selling your pre-loved makeups po ba? Curious lang.. hehehe.. baka isa ako sa bumili. ;)

  12. Been seeing NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick over the net these past few days. And I really want to have a try! Hope you can make a review soon before I purchase one. Last time I bought a lip cream (LA Girl), ang ganda ganda niya pictures, yung shade, consistency and texture! Pero nung ti-nry ko na, nadisappoint ako. Ewan ko kung fake yun o hindi lang talaga sya maganda. Well, sa NYX, wala akong problema, maganda talaga quality, kaso ang daming fake sa online, tapos sobrang mahal sa mall. huhu.
