NYX Cosmetics


Hi everyone, this post is about NYX Cosmetics including a review with swatches. I recently was in contact with one of the marketing representatives from NYX to do a review of their products. I was sent a wide range of items and I will honestly say these are all great products; the pigmentation of everything is great, from the lip creams to the eye shadow palette to the blushes. NYX is now definitely one of my top 5 cosmetics brands. You can buy NYX online or at select ULTA stores. Click the NYX link on the left of my blog to get directed to their website.  To read my Online Magazine Article please go to Declare Magazine.

UPDATE 9/27: This can definitely compare to the UD Naked Palette if your on a budget definately get this palette, it also has lip gloss's.

UPDATE 9/27: I definitely love these two, I like how the colors mix and how you can choose to use one side or all at once.

UPDATE 9/27: I am still a bit undecided on these.
