NYX Cosmetics is now in Australia!! + NYX Powder Blush and Wonder Pencil Review

December 22nd, 2013

To all the beauty junkies in Australia, I come as the bearer of good news – we now have NYX Cosmetics available in Australia!! No, I don’t mean online. I mean in store J Target now stocks NYX cosmetics in their stores and has a wide range of products available to try and buy. Now this is exciting news!

I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into the Target store at Chadstone Shopping Centre, Melbourne and found a counter full of NYX products. I have read and heard beauty bloggers and YouTubers rave about NYX products and I always wanted to try. But as it is a US based company, the only way to buy was online without trying the products and swatching the colours – something I prefer not to do. So, girls, go crazy at the NYX counter when you are in a Target store next.

The Beauty Mantra opinion

I absolutely loved the packaging of the NYX Powder Blushes. They are really compact, and can fit into a cosmetic pouch. The blush is finely milled and is almost creamy powder in texture. It is smooth to touch and blends easily into the skin. This Pinched shade is a nice coral pink with gold particles in it. The particles are not too heavy but give a subtle iridescence. I found that the blush is well pigmented and can be applied with a brush or fingers.  The NYX Pinched is a good quality dupe for NARS Orgasm blush. Overall, a product I love and am looking forward to trying different shades.

Product specifics

The product comes as a 1g pencil that has to be sharpened. It is available in 3 shades – light, medium and deep.  

The Beauty Mantra opinion

I am bought on the concept of a pencil that can conceal, highlight and prevent bleeding; and can fit into your cosmetic pouch. This pencil is a great to have while on the go. The texture is creamy and blends super well. The pencil tip shape gives it the precision to highlight under the brows or cupids bow, can brighten eyes when used as eyeliner in the water line and conceals blemishes that pop up during the day. The medium shade matched pretty well with my skin tone and didn’t look ashy. The only downside is that we have to sharpen the pencil – I wish it were a retractable pencil so that it can be travel friendly. For the price, it definitely is a winner.
