NYX Makeup Review Lip Liner Concealer
If you are a lover of beauty bloggers as much as I am one of the Holy Grail brands many from over the pond go on about is NYX. Set as an affordable professional makeup brand it had high expectations in my book.

I have always wanted to try a few items but I am always wary of buying products online that I have never used before. I was delighted when I finally saw the range available in Ireland in Sam McCauley chemist. It was a small selection of what is available but great to finally see what all the fuss was about. I wanted to dive right in buying everything on the stand but I restrained myself to only two products.

My first purchase was one of their best sellers, the HD concealer wand. It was great to see it came in such varied colours making it easy to find a good colour match. It even came it colour corrector colours like lavender, yellow and green. I went for the second lightest colour, fair as it had more of a pink undertone, which works best for me under the eyes. I wouldn’t say this was my favourite concealer ever as the coverage was quiet light but for €6.99 it was a great bargain for brightening my under eye area. 

Tying to bring out my inner Kylie Jenner I also picked up this perfect nude lip liner. Sometimes nude lipstick can have a tendency to wash me out but this shade is a slightly deeper taupe colour so works really well for my pasty Irish completion. I love to wear it under darker colour just to define my lips or even on its own with a bit of lip balm for a more natural lip. 

From trying this small collection I think NYX compares well with price and quality to other chemist (drugstore) brands but might have been a bit overhyped by some people. 

Have you tried NYX? How do you feel it compares to other brands?
