My Opinion I love NARS and pretty much everything I’ve tried from them has been a hit. I just wish the products were cheaper because I want everything and it’s all so pricey. This is definitely one of my favorite high end brands.

My Opinion
When I first started getting into makeup, NYX was my favorite brand because their products were so affordable. Clearly, I’ve tried a lot from the line. I used to get so excited for their new launches because they were really staying on top of trends and making great products at great prices. I feel like they’ve fallen off though. They don’t launch a lot of new, innovative products and when they do, it’s nothing I’m dying to try. Their lip products are their best products and they make my favorite affordable gloss, the Butter Gloss. I would love for NYX to make a come back and release some amazing products. As of now, it’s a brand I don’t even really think about or get excited about anymore.
