NYX First Thoughts

About a week ago Tyler coyly asked me, "would you like to buy some makeup?" 

Well, obviously YES was the answer.  He is really into buying records at the moment so he bought a few frames through Urban Outfitters, but needed to meet the minimum purchase for free shipping.  So I decided to help him out a little (:

I've owned a couple of Nyx products in the past and I liked them pretty well.  I've heard a lot of good things about their jumbo eye pencils and I already know I like their blush & lipstick.

So this is what resulted when Tyler told me he needed five more dollars to reach the limit...

L to R MLS15 Whipped Caviar, MLS13 Angel
 I love these matte lipsticks!  They are highly pigmented, go on super smooth, and have a nice even, matte finish.  They are slightly drying but its nothing a little balm/gloss can't cure!  They're better than most matte products in that regard.

L to R: 611 Yogurt, 605 Strawberry Milk
The texture of the pencils is amaaaazing.  I love how creamy and smooth they glide on.  Definitely won't tug on your eyelid during application!  They do require a sharpener.

TWBS01 Tango and Highlight
 I was really excited for this product.  I wanted a highlighter but not anything too light.  This highlighting bronzing stick is really beautiful on the skin and gives just a hint of bronze.

L to R: PB03 Angel, PB10 Sand
 I couldn't believe how finely milled these blushes were, especially Angel. They are soft, pigmented, and seem really blendable as far I can tell!  I haven't used them yet so we'll see (:

Now for swatches...
L to R: Angel, Whipped Caviar, Strawberry Milk, Yogurt

L to R: Angel, Sand, Tango and Highlight
I know Nyx products are really nothing new on the beauty scene but I'm just now getting around to really trying out what they have to offer.  So far I am pleased with the quality especially for the price.

What are your thoughts on these products?

Let me know in the comments, I love to hear your voices (:  Till next time!
