Review: Three Nyx Eye Products

Nyx is a brand I've really been into lately. The Nyx displays in Switzerland were revamped last Spring and with it came plenty of new launches. The Lingerie liquid lipsticks sold out pretty much instantly and haven't come back in stock yet, but the line was so full of novelty that I quickly forgot about those. Here are three products that I put to the test over the past month:

  • The Vivid Brights liquid liners: By far my favorite products from this selection. They are pigmented, long lasting, they come in really fun colors and add a nice pop to any make up look. They are 5,90 CHF a piece which, in my opinion, is a bargain for such a nice quality product. I am looking forward to compare them to the New Urban Decay Razor Sharp eyeliners that should come out very soon. A must have for any make up lover. Pictured above are the shades: Vivid Envy (Green), Vivid Halo (Yellow) and Vivid Violet.

  • The Jumbo pencil in Milk: A cult product that is not super glamorous, but very functional. It does provide a nice white canvas for your eyeshadows and has a sticky texture that grips the powders you put on top. I wore it over an eye primer and did not experience any creasing. Another must have.

  • The Avant Pop palettes in Surreal My Heart and Art Throb: I have mixed feelings about these products. On one hand I love the color selection and how both palettes can be combined, but on the other hand I find these a bit chalky and not long wearing enough for my liking. Both looks that you can se below were created using 5-6 different shadows from the palettes and yet it looks like all I have on is a light wash of 1-2 shadows. However the weak pigmentation can be a plus for beginners or people used to neutrals who want to experiment with brighter color without going over the top. I will keep experimenting with them (I haven't tried to use them wet), but I definitely think that for 20 CHF (a piece) the quality should be higher.
