Being a college student is hard. Being a college student who has a love for makeup and a super tight budget is even harder. But thanks to NYX, you can have high quality makeup that won’t break the bank, and we’ve rounded up some of the best NYX products out there. NYX is a company whose products can be found anywhere from their online website, to CVS to Target that are absolute must haves! Here is a list of the 10 best makeup products from NYX Cosmetics that every college girl needs to have in her makeup bag!
If you want to have super glossy lips that last all day, this lip gloss is for you! Hands down, this is one of the best NYX products out there, a must-have in my book. The NYX Intense Butter Gloss comes in several shades that work for all seasons and occasions. I personally use this product in the shade Black Cherry Tart, which I love to pair with a neutral eye.
The Matte Lipstick was my first NYX product and it was love at first swipe. It goes on smoothly and you barely need to touch it. Another reason why I love this product is that it doesn’t dry out my lips. This was a huge allure for me because other lip products that I’ve tried have left me with super dry lips. Sable is a great neutral color to use that goes with anything!
Every makeup wearer needs to invest in a setting spray. It’s disappointing to spend valuable time doing your makeup only to realize that it doesn’t last throughout the day. This setting spray will make sure that your makeup lasts from early morning classes to girls’ night out. NYX offers two finishes : A dewy fresh finish and matte-shine free.
4. Wonder Stick
Whether you’re a beauty beginner learning how to contour, or a makeup expert looking for a new product to try, you need to check out the wonder stick. I used to be just a foundation and powder kind of girl, but now I like to add contouring to my makeup routine. I was skeptical about using this product because I have really sensitive skin, but the wonder stick didn’t irritate my skin at all.
NYX carries a wide range of brushes that will work for all your beauty needs; from perfecting the Smokey eye to applying blush. The prices of these brushes start at $9 which is pretty affordable!
I would highly recommend this product if you’re looking for something that will make sure your eyeshadow lasts all day. It gets rid of those annoying creases and it also makes your eyeshadow more vibrant! This eye primer is very affordable and works just as a well as Urban Decay’s primer.
I am absolutely obsessed with these eye shadows! They come in 12 beautiful colors that can be used alone or combined with others to create a fun look. The shadow is inexpensive, which is great because you can buy one, or buy them all; and still have a happy wallet.
Keep your brows “on fleek” with NYX’s Eyebrow Cake Powder. This kit includes powder that will match your natural eyebrow color as well as a slanted brush and spoolie to help style your eyebrows.
9. NYX All Over Balm
This product is a must have, especially for college students, because it can be used for several purposes. Chapped lips? Yep! Cuticles? Of courses! Dry Winter skin? NYX All Over Balm has your back! The best thing about this product is that it’s available in three different skin friendly oils (Argan, Coconut or Macadamia). Another bonus is that the balm comes in a cute little tin!
I’ve been looking for a beauty sponge ever since a lot of my favorite beauty vloggers have been saying great things about them. I love this sponge and how well it blends in my foundation!
