Beauty Favorites: NYX Lipstick

Hello beauties, and happy March 1st! I'm so excited for spring to arrive, but technically it's been spring all winter long with these temperatures. What's more exciting than the snow melting and temperatures in the sixties? spring makeup! I love the transition from winter-time to spring time makeup all you see is fresh, dewy, beautiful faces with pops of color. When it comes to makeup, lipstick is usually the last thing on my list, but all that has changed because of NYX makeup. For those of you that don't know about NYX makeup, it's a cruelty free  brand that's super affordable and can be found at Target, Nordstrom Rack, or Ulta's everywhere. Whenever I sell this brand to my clients, I advise them NYX is basically MAC's baby, because in reality, they basically are one in the same. Great quality, but super affordable, what's not to love here? I will admit I'm obsessed with this brand, especially for it's soft matte lip creams, and their liquid suede lipsticks. Today I'm sharing a few of my favorite shades straight from NYX. 

All About NYX Cosmetics...

NYX Cosmetics "Be fierce, be fabulous" is there signature statement. They are a cruelty free, professional yet affordable makeup brand. Their makeup line offers a full selection of color products ranging from lipstick right down to eye makeup primer. Their line has quite the variety of lipsticks options, as well as eye shadow. As I said previously, you can find the NYX brand at Target, Ulta, and Nordstrom Rack BUT you can only find the entirety of the line directly on their website, so keep that in mind while shopping. Overall, if you're looking for an affordable makeup brand, with professional quality, give NYX a fair chance, I know you wont be disappointed

The shades.....

(swatches from left to right)

  1. Liquid Lingerie in Exotic
  2. Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen
  3. Liquid Suede Lipstick in soft spoken
  4. Liquid Suede Lipstick in Cherry Skies
  5. Lipstick Lingerie in Ruffle Trim
  6. Soft Matte Lip Cream in Rome

These colors have always been my essentials, especially the reds. Copenhagen is the perfect vampy lip color (a plum-ish red, but not too purple!) and Cherry Skies is that classic, bold red. I must say I'm a little obsessed with the Liquid Suede lipsticks, the finish is beyond amazing. It's matte, without having a tacky finish ( the liquid lingerie can be a little tacky even after drying!) The Soft Matte Lip Creams is one of my must-haves, easy to wear, and dries quickly,  to a beautiful matte finish. As you may have noticed, I'm into mauves, nothing too too bold here. I tend to play it safe on the lips, and stick very neutral. When it comes to reds, the more bold, the better. I love fall makeup, and Copenhagen is my jam in the fall months here in New England, who doesn't love a dark lip? With my undertones, I can easily pull of dark lips, as well as brights, I'm very fortunate to have pale skin. Just in the past few years, my makeup collection has grown incredibly - when it comes to lipsticks. An amazing shade of red can do a number on your confidence, where a nude lip can leave you feeling polished and put together. Lipstick is a wonderful tool to have in any girls arsenal. I highly advise all my makeup junkie readers to invest in a few NYX lipsticks because: 1. They're inexpensive. 2. They're flat out bomb. 3. The color variety is INCREDIBLE. 4. I'll say it again... super inexpensive and affordable for any budget!
