NYX | Blush in Pinched and Lip Gloss in Beige

posted on: Wednesday, July 17, 2013

A couple months ago my parents went on a trip to Atlanta and I asked them to pick me up a few things from Ulta. I had been hearing a lot about the NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Beige as well as the NYX blush in Pinched but had no luck finding them in Calgary. I'm really glad that I sent my parents out looking for these two items because I am really happy with them. 

NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Beige
This is my first NYX lip gloss so I'm not sure how it compares to the other colours but I like that there is no glitter or sparkle, it glides on smooth, and it isn't sticky or tacky. I do have to be careful with the amount of product I put on because it can get a bit gloopy on me. I do have small lips though, so I often have to be a bit careful with the amount of lip gloss on the applicators. I have heard that NYX lip glosses are hit or miss, but I adore this one. Don't let the name fool you, it is definitely not a beige colour but is more of a pinky/mauve. 

NYX Blush in Pinched
In the photo below I packed on the colour because I didn't know how well it would show up in the photo. Usually I wear this blush more subtly. The colour is a beautiful pink with a hint of coral and a bit of gold glitter. The blush is fairly pigmented and the texture is quite soft and easy to work with. I also love the quilted design of the blush.
