Two NYX favourites

Tuesday, 1 April 2014
What is one brand that comes to mind when thinking of a Greek Goddess? The two brands for my is Eye of Horus and then of course NYX.
You may be familiar with NYX but asking how on Earth that reminds me of a Greek Goddess.. Well below Wiki will explain exactly how and why.

WIKIPEDIA MEANING OF NYX: Nyx (Greek: Νύξ, "Night")[1] – Roman (in Latin): Nox – is the Greek goddess (or personification) of the night. A shadowy figure, Nyx stood at or near the beginning of creation, and was the mother of other personified deities such as Hypnos (Sleep) and Thanatos (Death). Her appearances are sparse in surviving mythology, but reveal her as a figure of exceptional power and beauty. She is found in the shadows of the world and only ever seen in glimpses.
 
So when I think of NYX I imagine a goddess and how she would wear her make up. The two standout product from NYX for me are:
 
NEW limited edition palette – butt “naked” $39.95

On counter as of the 24th of April.
You can now find this palette in your local Target, as they just recently launched in store.
 
This is a must have palette for those lovelies that love the naked eye, or earth coloured eye palette’s. I must say I love this range of colours and think they work well with any outfit or look.
 

Then you slide the bottom draw out and there are some stunning illuminators and blushers. With 4 matte and pearl blushers and 3 pearlescent face illuminators your sure to find the colours your after.
 
Top Tray
The butt “naked” palette lives in my glovebox for those days I need makeup on the go or want to touch up on the run.
 
Bottom Tray
The illuminators work perfectly on bare skin and liven and brighten up your face instantly.
 
Then of course there is a product that a lot of beauty bloggers have been raving about lately, this product is of course the
 
NYX WONDER PENCIL $8.95

Also available at Target
 
For a measly $8.95 I think this pencil is an absolute steal!! This is a multi-funcational pencil that conceals, lines and brightens. It has the ability to hide blemished (even those stubborn ones), acts as a lip liner to prevent your favourite lip colour from bleeding and is an eyeliner that brightens your eyes once you apply it on the water line, which is the line under your eyes.

The pencil comes in three shades- light, medium and deep.  Medium is the number 1 selling shade from this line as it suits most face colours in my opinion and is what I was sent for review.
 

I love using the NYX Wonder Pencil under my eyes where it is really dark, as it doesn’t move once I apply my foundation and really lightens up that area.
 
Great pencil to keep in your makeup case to eliminate big and bulky products- perfect for the traveling beauty.
