My top NYX picks and a chance to win €100 worth of NYX products

NYX Group Shot 3Last week I posted a picture of a mini NYX haul on Facebook and so many of you asked me to give a recommendation of my top products. It is overwhelming standing in front of a packed stand and not knowing what to buy. So here are my top picks from NYX, so you know exactly what to pick up on your next trip to a NYX stand

Butter Gloss

Screen Shot 2015-01-20 at 21.17.35I have actually lost count at of how many of these I have.There are 12 different colours in this collection, with a colour to suit everyone and at this stage it could easily be 8 or 9 that I own. I honestly can’t get enough of them. I find that I tend to wear them more during the Spring and Summer, but over the weekend I discover that if you pair Creme Brule up with the NYX round lipstick in Summer love and the NYX lip liner in Mauve, you have the most beautiful nude lip ever!

The Butter glosses are the smoothest and most moisturising glosses I have tried. They are not sticky and they glide on like…. butter when applying. They do not dry out and are very lightweight on the lips.these glosses are really pigmented and add loads of colour to your lips. They last pretty long for lip glosses and you would get about an hour without having to reapply. Although if you are like me, I top up my gloss every few minutes.

The Butter Glosses cost €6.49 each and for the amount you will use them, they are a complete bargain. You can read a full review here.


Screen Shot 2015-01-20 at 21.19.44The NYX blusher are fantastic value for such a great little product. They are seriously pigmented and 1 quick swipe of your brush picks up loads of product and creates a natural sheer finish to the cheeks. However, the colour is buildable if you want a more full on look. They can be a little chalky on the chalky side, but if you apply a small amount of product and build up to your desired colour, the work out really well.The key is not to go in heavy handed. There are 27 colours in the range, but only 12 are available in Ireland. A cult favourite that I am yet to get my hands on, is Taupe. This is said to be the ultimate contouring product for fair skin. These blushers cost €7.49 and you can read a full review here.

Lip Liners

Screen Shot 2015-01-20 at 22.02.12My advice when it comes to NYX lip liners, is buy them all. Every single one of them!! While they aren’t as creamy as a Mac liner, they are not far off and do a fantastic job lining your lips. I honestly love them. With many of them being dupes for Mac liners they can be hard to come by. I’ve been on the hunt for Mauve, which is a dupe for Mac whirl, the ultimate Kylie Jenner colour. My absolute favourite is Bloom, but sadly you can’t get that in Ireland. Natural pink is also fab. I have 5 new liners to try and will do up a full blog post on the colours I’ve bought. However, if you have a lip colour to match the colour available just buy it. You won’t be disappointed. As far as I know, there are 16 available in Ireland.


Screen Shot 2015-01-20 at 22.29.36NYX have 2 types of lipsticks on sale in Ireland, Round lipsticks and the Matte lipsticks. Just like with the lip liners, if you like a colour buy it, as I love these lip sticks. Granted I have only tried a a few so far, but I am already beyond obsessed. Thalia, is just the most divine brown / mauve nude. I’m wearing it with Mac spice liner and it is just absolute love. I will have a full blog post up on these soon. The round lipsticks cost €5.49 and the matte €7.49.

To celebrate The Beautiful Truth hitting 20,000 Facebook followers I have a €100 worth of NYX products to give away. Considering NYX products are so reasonably priced, this will be a prize that you’re gonna want to win. You can enter through the Rafflecopter app down below.

    Every time I get to the NYX stand, all the favourites are gone, so hoping I win this! Would be such a lovely treat!

  6. says

    Favourite products have to be the HD Concealer, very good coverage and so many shades. Taupe blush, it really is a pale girls dream contour and the only thing I’ll ever use to contour my nose but probably my favourite of all time is the lip liners. I use Nude Beige and Pale Pink religiously! They’re amazing! I’ll be making it my business to pick up EVER shade. Apparently they have over 60 shades!!

  7. says

  10. Gemma says

    I’ve just discovered how amazing NYX products are. I love the Thalia lipstick and I’m dying to try out some more!

  11. Megan connor says

    Love their concealers! I find the green one is great for covering up redness, definitely would need to use before foundation though as it is so pigmented but does a great job of covering redness! Also am quite in love with the dewy setting spray, a lot cheaper than my fix plus and does just as good a job! Fab giveaway!

  12. Jeanette says

    I got introduced to the fab NYX range through your blogs and I love love love them!! Can’t get enough of the butter glosses!

  13. Kerryanne McCartney says

  14. rachel says

  15. dawn Obrien says

    I haven’t been lucky enough to try NYX yet, but I really fancy trying the NYX Push-Up Bra For Eyebrow Pencil as I love brow products!

  16. Mandy Derwin says

    I haven’t actually tried this brand yet but I will be on the hunt for the butter gloss to try when I find it 🙂

  17. says

    I haven’t tried anything from Nyx yet but they recently got a Nyx stand in my local Sam McCauleys so I’m dying to try some of their stuff out!

  18. Alexandra Huynh says

    I love the NYX Matte Finish Makeup setting spray. I have very oily skin and I usually use smashbox HD primer to set my makeup, but on discovering this amazing product it has become one of my holy grail products. It keeps my makeup in place, and my foundation is no longer an oil slick at the end of the night.

  19. Laura-May says

    Dying to try the blushes! I literally own one blush, I’ve been to tentative with my recent foray into the world of cheek colour and I want more… MOARRR!

  20. KRISTINA C says

    Looooove the Jumbo Eye Pencil in “Milk”; perfect base for eyeshadow and great for highlighting the brow bone! 🙂 also love Eurotrash and Maison Matte lipsticks….unreal 😀

  21. Elaine SHANAhan says

    Adore the blushers but if I’m being honest I’ve loved all the NYX products I’ve tried so far… That’s my problem 🙁 !!!

  22. Fiona says

    Love the spirit matte lipstick!! Now all I need is the matching lip liner and il be on the way to Kylie Jenner lips ❤️

  23. Emma Flood says

    love the curve liquid eyeliner, as someone whos not very good at applying eyeliner i find this product makes it really easy.

  24. Teresa Cosgrove says

    what a fab prize! love the NYX products my favourties are the matte lipsticks, buttegloss and lip liners think they all work great together

  25. elaine mcmillan says

    Love the lip butters!! I am addicted and such great value!! Oh the HD photogenic concealer is amazing too!!

  26. says

    I absolutely love the NYX matte lipsticks! especially whipped caviar, strawberry daiquiri and eurtrash, They are by far my favorite! I’m also trying out their pore filler primer and its been doing wonders for my skin so far! 🙂

  27. Laura says

    The NYX blush in Taupe is definitely a must have for contouring our pale Irish complexions! It’s the only thing I’ve been using to contour for ages now, as I am quite pale (NC15) I find it sooo difficult to find a nice cool toned contouring shade for me, generally bronzers aren’t an option but this blush answered all my prayers!! It can be a bit chalky but as you rightly said, use a light hand & blend, blend, blend!! 🙂 Oh I also love the powder eyebrow kit in blonde, it thankfully has no red tone to it which can be a problem when trying to find a shade for lighter eyebrows xx

  28. Edel says


    I have found NYX products in two locations recently:

    Brady’s Pharmacy in Blanchardstown Shoppoing Centre
    Mac Namara’s Pharmacy in Boroimhe Shopping Centre in Swords

    Hope this is helpful to anyone in either location.
