With Spring on the way, makeup is getting dewier, brighter and more playful. Today, I have three pieces from NYX to share with you - a little glow, a pop of colour and a unique lippie.
NYX Away We Glow Highlighter in State of Flux
Let's start with the glow. The NYX Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter in State of Flux ($12 CAD) is a pearly lavender. It's a thin, fast-drying cream that is easy to sheer out or build up. The liquid leans more metallic, as opposed to glittery. On my arm, the product appears very similar to the CoverFX Custom Enhancer Drops. I didn't expect to like the pearly lavender. The product is sheer enough that it isn't stark on my warmer complexion, which pearly highlighters tend to do on my skin. I didn't find this product to last particularly long - maybe 4-5 hours, however it looks fantastic on the skin and works wonderfully as a base for powder highlighter.
What is spring without some pops of pink? The NYX Ombre Blush in Sweet Spring ($13 CAD) is just that - the perfect pop of pink. The ombre is a combination of a warm coral pink and a slightly cooler-toned pink. While I love the look of an ombre, I don't find that of the NYX Ombre Blush to be that visually stunning. That being said, the blush is ultra pigmented and easy to blend.
While the grey-mauve hue of the NYX Lip Lingerie in Embellishment ($9 CAD) doesn't scream Spring, the season is a time to spring into fresh, new colours. In some lights it looks more pink and in others it's more purply-grey. The Lip Lingerie isn't my all time favourite lip formulation (it's not drying, though it isn't super long wearing and it has some residual tackiness to it), but it does come in a number of trendy yet wearable neutral shades for the entire spectrum of skin tones.
