NYX Cosmetics Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter

NYX Away We Glow Highlighter

Hi beauties!

If you want to add to your highlighter stash, NYX Away We Glow Liquid Highlighters are lightweight highlighters that can be mixed with a moisturizer or applied on top of foundation.

As usual, NYX is offering a nice selection of shades from deep rose gold to champagne that suit every skin tone. At $12 each (CDN), the price is right for the amount of product you get especially if you want to create different looks.

One of the features that I like is that you can control the intensity from a subtle to a dramatic glow. The creamy formula also makes it blendable.

With a wide applicator, applying the highlighter is super easy with a single swipe. It also works well if you want to multitask and use the highlighter as eye shadow: either on the lids or under the brow.

Here are the nine shades in the Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter collection (the first four in the list are pictured in the photo):

  • Rose Quartz–Rose Gold Pearl
  • Golden Hour–True Gold Pearl
  • State of Flux–Lavender Pearl
  • Gold Rush–Bronzed Gold Pearl
  • Liquid Prism–White Opal Iridescence
  • Crystal Glare–White Champagne Pearl
  • Daytime Halo–True Champagne Pearl
  • Moon Glow–White Pearl
  • Moonbeam–Soft Pink Pearl

For fair skin, State of Flux is very pretty, while Golden Hour or Gold Rush suit deeper skin tones. Whichever shade you pick up, the highlighters have good color payoff and all day wear.

Beauty Event: New NYX Professional Makeup Store Celebration

12 Apr

Hi beauties!

I was very lucky to receive an invitation to an NYX Cosmetics party last week to celebrate the opening of their professional makeup store in Metrown mall in Burnaby (a suburb close to Vancouver, BC).

It was a fun evening with fellow bloggers and local media checking out makeup, food, and fashion (the dress code was afer prom).

On the menu, NYX served up sweet and savory waffles, poutine, and assorted candy (I tried to resist, but the strawberry licorice was so good).

The decor for the party was what you’d expect from NYX with life-size tubes of Lip Lingerie and a photo station, where we could pose with our favorite shade of lip gloss.

Everyone was super excited that the Vancouver area is finally getting an NYX professional makeup store. Sometimes Vancouver is on the slow side, when it comes to retail, because of the high cost of real estate.

NYX was also kind enough to give us a goodie bag with some of their latest launches, including;

I can’t wait to write about these NYX products in the future! Even better, I can pick up NYX latest releases in person. 💕

Smart Illumination: NYX Strobe of Genius

NYX Strobe of Genius

If you weren’t born with it, one way to capture the “glowy” skin look is with an illuminating palette that helps to create depth and dimension with light.

The Strobe of Genius palette from NYX Cosmetics comes with seven versatile shades to master the art of strobing (or highlighting).

Even though the palette looks like an explosion of shimmer, the shades are surprisingly soft and flattering without leaving a heavy finish.

The palette contains cool and warm tones that go beyond basic white and pink, including:

  • Top Row: Gold, champagne, lilac, rose gold (cool)
  • Bottom Row: Copper, bronze, ivory (warm)

If you’re keen on strobing through the fall, this could be your go to kit with so many possibilities (plus you can use the shades as eye shadow, bronzer, or blush).
