What's not to love about NYX Professional Makeup? NYX is an old friend who came into your life when you were a teenager and stayed your bestie forever. You used their lip gloss when you went on a first date in high school, and wore their lipstick as an adult on your first job interview. NYX has a cult-like following because of its wide range of affordable products that work as well as high-end buys. Plus, the brand is cruelty-free.


No wonder makeup artists and consumers have the same love and respect for NYX because it has the power to make you look and feel more beautiful. Plus, the range of colors, whether eyeshadow or lipstick, is insane. You know you have spent hours by the NYX aisle trying to figure out how many you should buy. Known for the ridiculous range of colors, it is impossible not to fall in love with one of their shades. Whether you are a gloss girl or a liquid lipstick lady, you can find one made for you regardless of your skin color or preference in a lip product.

Most nudes look like concealer on people with darker skin, but NYX has outdone itself by creating lip colors in a range of melanin-rich tones that work perfectly for people of color. Regarding their lip gloss, makeup artist Morgane Martini told Allure, "Deeper skin tones will find many ways to have nudes that complement their skin." Good job, NYX!


NYX lip products are loved for their color range, high quality, and inclusivity

People love NYX because they have something for people of all skin tones, and you can always find a shade that complements you while making you feel like a million bucks.

If you have always wanted to channel your inner Kim Kardashian, look no further than their Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick ($7). PopSugar counts it as one of their best lip products because of the wide range of nudes, so you are bound to find the one that will make you feel like the Greek Goddess of the night — Nyx — herself. Elite Daily listed their Slim Lip Pencil ($4) as one of the best because it is long-lasting, buttery soft, and won't bleed. Another fan favorite is the Soft Matte Lip Cream ($6.50), a highly pigmented formula that is lightweight, lasts for hours, and will not dry your lips at all. It's as good as the prestige liquid lipsticks at a fraction of the cost.


Byrdie recommends the Retractable Lip Liner ($5) because it is highly pigmented and loved by the director of Glamsquad Kelli J. Bartlett. If you want shine with staying power, check out the Shine Loud High Shine Lip Color ($11.50) that went viral on TikTok because the color doesn't transfer, and the gloss lasts forever (via Glamour). The applicator literally shapes your lips into a perfect pout. Another fan favorite is the Butter Gloss ($5) because it provides sheer-to-medium coverage without the sticky feeling (via Allure).
