New from NYX Spring 2015

NYX has some fun and interesting additions to their line up for Spring 2015, and I wanted to show you some of their new offerings.  There are bound to be more new products coming down the line, but here are a few of the earliest arrivals.  Be sure to keep an eye out at Ulta, Target, and nyxcosmetics.com for new displays and product announcements.

NYX 3C Conceal Correct Contour Palette

Contouring is going to be a huge trend for 2015, so NYX is right on target with the new 3C Conceal Correct Contour Palettes.  The palettes aren’t on NYX’s website yet, but they are at ulta.com.  According to Ulta: “Wake up your face with the ultimate concealer palette in six color correcting shades. NYX Cosmetics 3C Conceal Correct Contour Palette is a lightweight, non-creasing formula which glides on for an ultra-smooth finish and leaves skin feeling soft and supple.”  The palettes come in Light, Medium, and Deep.  There seems to be a great mix of shades for concealing and cream contour.  The palettes are $11.99 at Ulta.

NYX Color Correcting Powder

Nest up are the new NYX Color Correcting Powders.  They haven’t hit Ulta yet, but are available through nyxcosmetics.com, and retail for $10.  Here is the description that NYX provides: “Even out your complexion using our ultra-fine, translucent loose Color Correcting Powder. This lightweight, easy to use powder can be applied before or after your foundation. The paraben and talc-free formula helps you achieve a natural matte finish.”  The shades come in Green, Lavender, and Banana.  I am curious about how well the Color Correcting Powders will cover.  It’s tricky with shades like green and lavender because you don’t want an unnatural cast to the skin.  I expect the Banana shade to sell pretty well.

NYX Big & Loud Lash Primer

The new NYX Big & Loud Lash Primer is available at both NYX and Ulta’s websites for $7.  The description says:  “Give your lashes a boost with our Big & Loud Lash Primer. It works hand in hand with your favorite NYX mascara to enhance the length and volume of lashes.”  I have not used many lash primers, but it looks like this one may have more of a clear formula than the typical white cast that lash primers usually give.  It also appears that the wand has very narrow bristles.  I am curious to know if any of you try it and what you think.

NYX Color Mascara

The final product I have for you today is not completely new, but NYX has added five new shades to their Color Mascara lineup.  “Think beyond the ordinary with these fun and vibrant new mascara options from NYX. Packed full of pigments and delivering on the promise of intense color payoff, everyone will notice your fabulous eye lash color. Go for it, we dare you to try all eight shades!”  The five new shades are all bright and fun colors for Spring.  I am not sure if brightly colored lashes fit my style exactly, but I can appreciate the new additions.  The Color Mascara is available for $7 at NYX and Ulta.

I would love to know if you have tried any of these new products from NYX and what you thought.  Leave me a comment and tell me what new products you are looking forward to for Spring.  I am actually very excited to see what will be coming out with the new 2015 color of the year, Marsala.  The Sephora+Pantone Marsala collection looks great, and I am anxious for more brands to introduce products in that color range.  I find Marsala much more flattering than Radiant Orchid was.  What do you think?  Let me know in the comments below.

I am a self proclaimed eyeshadow junkie whose main hobbies include shopping, reading, singing, and mainlining caffeine while hanging out with my friends. I love interesting socks and have amassed quite a collection. The place that I want to visit before I die would be Greece. I like to read all seven Harry Potter books once a year the way some people read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. (Sorry JRRT, but JKR kicks butt in my book.) I love art, and use my creativity in many different ways through painting, crafts, and makeup. I love to cook and try new things, and I especially love to eat. My favorite "date" is to go wine tasting, and do so with my husband once or twice a year. I love musical theater and think the world would be much better off if we all just watched more musicals. I am 100% a cat person and, although I think dogs can be really cute and sweet, they make me sneeze so cats will always rule. I love faeries and magic, mythology, theology, philosophy, and psychology. I regularly do logic puzzles and sometimes crosswords. I adore Bette Midler, Betty White, and Carol Burnett. I am not ashamed to admit that I watch Glee. I would like to start making some of my own clothes because I can't stop myself from buying fabric. I'm sure that there is much more, but I'm suddenly distracted by something shiny.

  1. After Pantone announced Marsala as the Color of the Year, but before Sephora released the Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Collection, Cora from VIntageortacky posted a video explaining how women with different skintones/haircolor can incorporate Marsala into their makeup in a flattering way. The video is titled “THE NEW NEUTRAL – Why I’m Obsessed” and can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3pvM3bdKLfo

    I’m posting the link because I’m read so many blog comments from women who insist they cannot wear Marsala in any form due to their coloring. Cora explains how to combine Marsala with other colors, making Marsala a flattering shade on everyone.

    Insofar as NYX hopping on the Marsala bandwagon, I wonder. Their most recent releases for Spring seem to be headed in a different direction entirely. Although much of their collection will certainly combine well with Marsala dupes from other companies.

    • Thanks for posting that link! I will definitely have to check out that video. I really like Marsala and am already trying to figure out ways to incorporate it into my makeup look! 🙂

    • I didn’t mean to infer that any of these new products from NYX have anything to do with Marsala. I was just saying that the thing I am most looking forward to for this spring and summer are the new products that are going to come out featuring Marsala as the color of the year. Sorry if that was confusing. Thank you for posting that link to Cora’s video. I’ve also seen some hesitation on the internet from women who can’t figure out how to incorporate Marsala into their looks. I personally think that it is a much more user friendly shade than Radiant Orchid was, but I have always been a fan of both brown and wine shades, so it’s right up my alley. Personally, I think that Marsala (or a slight variation of the shade) can work for everyone.

    • Me too. I’d love to know how pigmented they are and how well they show up on dark lashes. The shades are a little too pastel for me to want to wear, but judging by how popular those Macaroon Lippies were last year, people really respond to these shades.
