An Afternoon with NYX

What better way to kick start May than an afternoon spent with the lovely people from NYX Cosmetics?

If you love reading beauty blogs, or you’re an avid Instagramer, you’ll already be familiar with the gorgeous American brand NYX (pronounced “niks” – and named after the Greek God of night).

NYX offers amazing quality professional make-up products, at incredibly affordable prices. Seriously, what more could you want?

The team at TLBG were lucky enough to be invited along to a pop-up event in Covent Garden, where we had the chance to play with some of their top rated products and learn more about the brand’s plans for 2015 (which are extremely exciting by the way!).

It’s clear to say we were completely lusting over their deliciously pigmented lip products – especially their Lip Butter Glosses and their Xtreme Lip Cream. The formulas are rich and moisturising, and the colours are trendy, fun and stay put for hours (even after multiple cocktails!). With prices starting at £6.00, there is no guilt when shopping any of their lip ranges either.

Amongst our other favourites were their creamy Jumbo Eye Pencils. These had a fabulous collection of shades, in all this seasons colours. The pencils were soft and the colours were strong and vibrant – and extremely easy to apply. A great handbag addition for taking your make-up look from day to night with one easy sweep.

NYX also do a couple of great bases for your make-up kit, their Pore Filler literally makes pores vanish before your very eyes. You can apply it under or over makeup. In our opinion, we love it even more than Benefit’s Porefessional. It’s not gimmicky, it’s just a great professional product the does exactly what it promises.

This July, NYX is looking to launch in to the British Highstreet – “Yes!” we hear you cry! Soon you’ll be able to stock-up on all your favourite products from your trusty drug store. (We’ll let you know which stores soon).

You’ll also be pleased to know, the Macaron range (pictured below) will soon be appearing in a TopShop store near you.

I hope you’re all as excited as we are by this news. We’ve got a few reviews of their range coming soon too – and we promise to keep you all updated. But, until then here are a few snaps for you to enjoy.

If you’re a fan already, let us know! We’d love to hear from you in the comments below.

NYX is widely available in the US, currently you can purchase the brand in the UK from or directly from their UK website.
