NYX Cosmetics – Underdog

Hi guys! Sooo I’ve luckily got the day off work today so what better to do than to review one of my newly favourite brands – NYX. Now I personally think NYX is one of the biggest underdogs in the cosmetics industry; the product quality itself is amazing but the prices are even better!

Recently, I purchased these little treats from Boots..


So what I’m going to do is go through each product and review them for you; starting with..

NYX Photogenic HD Concealer

So if like me you have very pale and fair skin, I get this concealer in shade ‘Light’. It is designed to conceal imperfections and discolorations. This concealer is so lightweight that it doesn’t look heavy or caked on your face. If you suffer from dark undereye circles, this is also a great cover up.

If you don’t fancy splashing out £40.00+ on contour kits; get a HD concealer a shade lighter and a shade darker than your skin and apply to your highlight and cheekbone contour areas and blend; this will give you a really natural contour.

NYX Matte Bronzer

Okay so with the Matte Bronzer, I still get this in ‘Light’ but be warned.. it’s still dark! The matte bronzer is powder and is great coverage with just a small amount on your blush brush. I mostly use my bronzer in the summer; I don’t tan well so the bronzer gives me a healthy summer glow. The bronzer also acts as a good powder contour; just apply with a small blush brush to the hollows of cheeks beneath your highlight!

NYX Eyeshadow Base

The NYX eyeshadow base for me, is my favourite product! You can get the base in 4 different colours – black, skin tone, white and white pearl. I bought the white base as I love to have different and bright coloured eyeshadows from time to time so there white base really helps brighten my eyeshadow colour and makes it pop! This eyeshadow base is also amazing for longevity; I can literally go all day without my eyeshadow fading or smudging into creases.

NYX Total Control Drop Foundation

If you do not want a heavy and thick foundation; this drop foundation is for you! The foundation comes with a ‘dropper’ so you can control the amount of drops you want to apply to your sponge/brush/face.  The foundation itself is so light but with full matte coverage. For best results, prep and prime your face first for a smooth and even application.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil

So this eye pencil is good because it can act as an eyeliner, lipliner and an eyeshadow pencil. NYX do 20+ pencil colours so you have a big range to choose from and they are so cheap – just make sure you have a jumbo pencil sharpener!! I have used the pencil as an eyeshadow and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to apply and smudged very little! For £5.50, you can’t go wrong!


Last year I would spend so much money on products like this but in all honesty, NYX cosmetics are more than half the prices and are just as amazing quality. If you’re on a budget, want more for your money or even just a cute gift for a friend or loved one – check out NYX.

As always guys,  I’ll price and link all products reviewed over at my ‘Products’ page (UK Retailer). I hope you have enjoyed the read! Until next time…

All my love, Levi-Maria
