NYX Cosmetics

NYX Cosmetics At-A-Glance

Strengths: NYX provides complete ingredient lists on its Web site; inexpensive for such quality makeup that rivals department store brands (yes, even M.A.C.); superior blush and eyeshadows; most of the mascaras are terrific.

Weaknesses: Many products are available only from the company's Web site, which means you can't see or test the colors in person (and the company doesn't offer samples); the Grow Brow Serum; average pencils for brows, eyes, and lips.

This small Los Angeles–based makeup line was founded in 1999 by a woman named Toni Ko. The company's Web site is vague about Ko's background, merely stating that she developed an interest in cosmetics as a teenager (you know, just like about 99.9% of teenage women) and wanted to create her own line of cosmetics. Ko's goal was to produce high-quality products at affordable prices, and that's the draw of NYX (pronounced "nicks") Cosmetics. We are pleased to report that, for the most part, Ko succeeded in her childhood dream.

It is important to note that this line offers a full selection of makeup products, from foundations to lip gloss. However, the only place to access everything NYX Cosmetics has to offer is their Web site. The Ulta chain is the largest distributor of NYX Cosmetics products in the United States, but they carry a smaller selection of NYX products. The good news is that most of the few NYX products Ulta stocks are impressive, especially the powder eyeshadows, which compete evenly with eyeshadows that cost a lot more.
