NYX has an interesting reputation. Quality wise, most people would agree that they are very comparable to higher end cosmetics, in terms of pigmentation and texture. The one brand that NYX is most often compared to is MAC, partly because of the huge array of colors and products that both brands offer. Price wise however, NYX falls into the category of drugstore cosmetics, with most products falling in the $1-10 price range.
Which makes this brand very, very desirable. The only problem is that NYX isn’t easily found. Ulta does carry a small selection of NYX, but it isn’t the entire brand. Other places that carry NYX is extremely random it is mostly found in beauty supply stores (not to be confused with Sally Beauty Supply). Most of these beauty supply stores can have a very small selection of the brand, even smaller than Ulta’s, and since these are small stores, the selection can be tampered with or even bad.
So unless you are extremely lucky to have a store with a great selection, you basically have to turn to the interwebs to get your NYX fix. Fortunately, there are many online stores that offer most if not all the NYX brand.
Here are the places that carry NYX
NYX Cosmetics – Official Site
Cherry Culture – Carries the largest selection of NYX other than the NYX website
Nonpareil Boutique - Independent site that offers a decent selection for a discounted price
My Diva Closet – Smallish selection – not nearly as cheap or popular as Cherry Culture
Makeup Masala – Smallish selection – offers slight discount and other brands as well
I’m sure there are other places to purchase NYX, but these are the most talked about resources. Many of these sites offer free world wide shipping with a minuim purchase, which is a good thing for the international fans of NYX. Outside of the States, NYX is practically nonexistent.
Tomorrow’s 30 Days & NYX post will focus on my favorite products and how they compare to MAC and other higher end brands!!
