Im NYX Blogger of the Month | Bronzer & Blusher Duo & Aqua Luxe Lipstick Review

Hi Beauty Lovers!

Todays post is my most exciting to date *drum roll*... I'm +NYX Cosmetics blogger of the month! There's nothing more rewarding to a beauty blogger than to have the recognition of an amazing company, and let me tell you when I read the email giving me the amazing news my heart skipped a beat.

In the past NYX has been no stranger here on Porcelain Queen, you can read all about my first ever NYX haul here, and my love of Jumbo Eye Pencils here.

I have shamefully admitted in the past that blusher and bronzer slightly fill me with dread, this is something that I have been working on, now I'm not saying I'm a contoured goddess like Kim Kardashian but I have taught myself the perfect technique for my face shape and complexion. 

I absolutely love the name of this compact as soon as I saw it I knew it was for me, the bronzer is light and flat tan brown, and the blusher is the perfect pop of shimmery frosted pink. The bronzer is very similar to Bobbi Brown Bronzing powder in Golden Light, it is subtle and ideal for porcelain complexions. It is easily built upon if you prefer to enhance your cheek bones slightly more.

The blusher from this compact is absolute perfection, it is the perfect balance between a pale frosty pink blush and a golden yellow illuminator. I find that there is no need for a highlight when wearing this blush, its a two in one product, in fact the compact is a contouring masterpiece in one palm size palette.

 NYX lipsticks have been on my radar for a while now, I fell in love with the Macroon Lippies, especially the Early Grey and Lavender shades, urgh to die for! I've seen Youtubers and Beauty Bloggers use the NYX lipsticks hundreds of  over, but shamefully until now I didn't own a single one.

The lipstick that I have is Pink Jewel and is part of the Aqua Luxe range, there's 12 iridescent and sparkle packed shades to suit everyone and anyone. Pink Jewel is a medium shade pink with a silver reflective shimmer, it suits my cool and pale complexion down to the ground.

My first and only worry was the size of the shimmer particles, lets be honest we all want shimmer without chunks of glitter. My worries soon melted away as soon as the buttery formula touched my lips, this is by far one of the smoothest lipsticks I've ever used. This isn't the most subtle of shimmers, so those who like there shimmer on the down low might want to choose another shade, however I really like the finish it gives.
