Now that NYX is in stock in Boots I’m sure there will be more NYX reviews to come but for now here’s my thoughts on some of the NYX eye products i’ve been trying out recently.
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil 12g in Milk
Retailing for £5 this is a great product to either use on its own or as an eyeshadow base. Coming in a wide range of colours, milk is the first one I went for as I always think white eye pencils are so versatile. This is also great for lining your eyes and making yourself appear more put together after a late night. Also works well for applying just to the inner corners to brighten the eye area. I would recommend this, I think it’s a steal at £5 only and I’m sure I will be adding more jumbo eye pencils to my collection.
NYX Dark Circle Concealer
Retailing at £6.50 from Boots I purchased this one in the shade light. This is a concealer with orange undertones to combat the appearance of dark circles and comes in 4 shades: fair, light, medium and deep. I like to place this in a triangle shade on my under-eye area with a concealer brush and lightly pat in with my fingers which works to warm up the product simultaneously.
For me this is more of a corrector which I apply under a brightening concealer. This does correct some of the darkness under my eyes but I’m not sure if this is a product I would shout about from the rooftops.
NYX concealer wand 20g in yellow
This retails for £5.50 at Boots and is a lightweight concealer that can easily be blended into the skin. I picked up the yellow for colour correcting the dark circles under my eyes. This does not appear cakey at all and I am yet to experience any creasing. This does work to colour correct my darkness but I do find that I need to build it up to get enough coverage. It’s also extremely easy to apply with a wand applicator.
NYX concealer wand 20g in green
Similar to the product listed above I also purchased the concealer wand in green to combat any redness in my skin. I’m not sure why but every time I apply this on my face it makes me think of toothpaste (I’m sure it’s just the green colour). This does work to colour correct but can appear odd at first due to the green tinge on the skin but once foundation goes on over it, it’s noticeable how the redness is magically cancelled out. I’ve also found that a little goes a long way with this one. I would recommend this product and I do prefer it to the yellow concealer if I had to choose between them.
Thank you for reading!
