This month sees the exciting launch of NYX Professional Makeup in Debenhams. NYX Professional Makeup is a brand I've wanted to get my hands on for a while now! So I was super excited to be sent their bestselling makeup products to review.

Ultimate Shadow Palette

The square palette contains 16 powder eyeshadows in a mixture of matte, satins, shimmers and metallics. It offers an array of tones from the pale to dark shades. 

Available in 4 striking colour combinations—Neutral-Cool, Neutral-Warm, Bright and Smokey/Highlight—each set features a vivid mix of velvety-rich textures and standout finishes.

Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette

I was so excited to get my hands on this! For all you highlighter addicts out there, this is amazing.
It contains 7 stunning, pigmented velvety-smooth powder highlighters, all designed to enhance your features with serious levels of illumination.



Contour Intuitive Palette

New and Exclusive to Debenhams!

Featuring 6 velvety eyeshadows, two pearly highlighters and one blush. This offers a beautiful, unique and pigmented array of colours, perfect for difining the angles on the face. Mix and match any of these highly pigmented and versatile powders for a super-sculpted glow.  


The NYX Professional Makeup glosses are to die for! Each one I tried offers a unique finish. They are easy to wear and simply gorgeous.

Lip Lingerie - Exotic
A creamy liquid lipstick with a gorgeous matte finish. Exotic is the perfect shade for Autumn/Winter; it's a warm, mahogany red! And really comfortable to wear - available in 24 creamy shades! 

Liquid Suede - Downtown Beauty
If you are looking for a dark shade this winter, then this is perfect for you - a deep brown. Another comfortable one to wear on the lips, it's waterproof too. If deep brown is not for you, then take look at the other 24 velvety-soft shades it is available in.

Butter Gloss - Strawberry Parfait
This is my favourite. It's so easy to wear, light, creamy and buttery.... It offers a sheer to medium coverage that melts onto your lips and is never sticky, leaving your lips soft, supple and kissable. Available in 34 sumptuous shades.

Pore Filler

A primer which is infused with vitamin E to help minimise the appearance of pores whilst also prepping the complexion for a smooth finish. NYX Professional Makeup Pore Filler is formulated without oil or talc so it feels more comfortable on the skin. As someone who suffers from large pores, I've really enjoyed using it, it's lightweight on the skin and improved the look of my skin. This is now the must-have primer in my makeup set.

If you're not already a Debenhams Beauty Club member, then you are missing out on some fab features, for example, as a member you receive free delivery on beauty orders.
