NYX Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Collection

Slap me happy, the NYX HD Collection is simply thrilling me today. Have you seen it? Now I’m not one for HD makeup as you know from my past babblings but I can so get on board with this.

One of the most interesting turns of events in this collection would be the price tag which is far above the norm for NYX but regardless, they have some pretty wicked offerings in this collection and I’m positive after you hear about it, you’ll be wanting it.

Plus I got a way you can grab some of it at 20% Off, love me much?

I’ll have a review of for you soon but until than here’s the details and images. Feel free to add your babble about what you think of the collection!

The NYX Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Collection is a new line of professional foundations, powders, blushes and primers from NYX Cosmetics. The unique light-diffusing formulas create a soft-focus effect on the face, making skin appear perfectly smooth. Designed for the high-definition coverage needs of those in the spotlight, the products cover skin imperfections flawlessly while remaining imperceptible on film or video – and in everyday real life.

  • NYX HD Studio Photogenic Foundation $15 (8 Shades)

The unique liquid foundation is formulated with High Definition technology. When light hits skin, the diffusing effect of the foundation reflects the light, making skin appear smoother with reduced appearance of pores and wrinkles. The foundation covers skin flawlessly and is infused with tri-peptides to promote collagen generation, reduce wrinkles, and rejuvenate skin. Available in 8 shades.

  • NYX HD Studio Photogenic Grinding Powder $25 (6 Shades)

This advanced compact powder system utilizes grinding technology to finely grate the powder each time it’s used – allowing precise control over how much is needed, while also keeping the remaining product fresh and contaminate-free. Like the foundation, the mineral-enriched high definition powder deflects light from skin, making pores appear smaller and skin smooth and clear. Available in 6 shades.

  • NYX HD Studio Photogenic Primer $14

Silky and lightweight, the primer creates a fresh canvas for liquid makeup or face powder application. The high definition formula’s light-diffusing properties help soften lines and erase the appearance of pores for a smooth finish. Makeup will look fresh and flawless all day. Available in one shade.

  • NYX HD Studio Photogenic Grinding Blush $16.50 (8 Shades)

Utilizing the same technology as the Grinding Powder, the Grinding Blush gives you control over the amount you need for precise application and no waste. The richly-pigmented blush goes on smooth and wears beautifully all day. Available in 8 shades.

  • NYX HD Eye Shadow Base $7

Get ready for a close up! Nyx’s new HD Eye Shadow Base perfects the delicate skin of the eye, evening skin tone and smoothing lines. The clear formula provides a barrier between skin’s natural oils and your makeup, for an even, flawless application that lasts. Your eyes will always look perfect – even under the camera’s flashing lights.

Also releasing…

  • NYX Mood Lip Gloss $4.50

Magic lip gloss starts off clear then turns into the most perfect shade of reddish-pink on your lips. It’s a tube of heavenly shiny bliss and your lips couldn’t be any more natural and sexier!

  • NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream $6 (11 Shades)

A matte, long wearing lip cream.

Awesome right?

The blushes look amazing and I’m quite excited to try them out. I admit the foundation and the grind powder has my eye as well. I was sorta surprised at the prices considering NYX is normally considerably cheaper but I’m not complaining.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    alot of the products remind me of SMASHBOX. wonder if the quality is just as good because these would be great alternatives for those desperate in need moments.

  • Cj

    Is it just me or does NYX HD foundation and primer look strikingly similar to MUFE HD foundation and primer lol 😛
    Definitely going to give the mood lip gloss a try, It apparently does the same thing as my Dior lip glow (which is my favorite lip product) for a fraction of the cost!

    • the Muse

      hmmm def cj ;-D there are a few dior lip glows around, wet n wild had one for Fall ha ;D! for like a buck something!

  • irini

    i desperately need a foundation so I hope this one cuts it!but the prices…wow nyx went overboard I shall say

  • Ru

    NYX seems to come out with a lot of similar products (and packaging) as their high-end makeup brands (as someone mentioned above)… curious if theres some sort of patent/copyright thing?

    • the Muse

      not sure Ru. Alot of various brands come out with similar items, just the cycle in the makeup world 🙂

  • Sara

    Aww, all the HD products make me sad because they mostly rely on silicones to give that fuzzy, smooth look. My skin can’t stand them (talk about serious blemishes on an otherwise clear face…ugh, big, nasty, seriously clogged pore deep ones too). Silica, on the other hand, is totally tolerable. Why can’t they use that instead? 🙁

    That stuff still looks pretty bad ass. I’m hit n’ miss on NYX, but always willing to give them “one more chance.” 😀

  • mandy

    I can live with the prices of these, like a step up for the brand like with e.l.f studio line versus the $1 line. Except for the Photogenic Grinding Powder … $25 is a lot for a “drugstore” product. The blush has me excited though. Do you think it will cater to oily skin ladies too for the foundation? Somehow I doubt it 🙁

    • the Muse

      not sure on oily skin mandy tbh! although I feel the same, quite excited about trying the blushes and the most excited about them ;D! $25 is alot but I’m kinda hopeful it means that we’ll be getting full on quality for our buck!

  • Lucy

    I also thought of Smashbox. Should be less money. I’m not going to the web site to check on prices. Way to tempting for me.

  • Lauren

    Would it kill them to throw out a darker brown shade for us brown skinned ladies when they launch new stuff! Either way I’m excited!

  • Libby

    Thanks for the code! I’m eyeing that mood gloss actually, lol I’m curious about it and I’ve got such a soft spot for glosses of any kind 😡

  • RonyaLii

    kinda expensive for nyx :/ ill rather pay 40 dolars for mufe foundation than experiment with nyx for 25 . cos i know mufe is worth the price . nyx – not sure .

    i do love their eyeshadows and jumbo’s 🙂

  • LorraineER

    The HD primer and foundation packaging reminds me of MUFE and the Grind powder reminds me of Smashbox Halo powder. The mood gloss is like O-gloss too! I wonder how they measure up? Can’t wait to see reviews!

  • Laura

    MUFE HD 117 is my HG foundation, so I’ll have to try the NYX. If I can get similar coverage/results, it’d be worth the switch since it’s half the price!!

  • Claudia

    wow NYX has been stepping up a lot! the $15 price tag is quite a bit for a drugstore foundation…usually they just don’t work out so I rather buy one god foundation instead of two bad ones but this looks promising!

    • the Muse

      my pleasure hun I have the HD primer review shortly (today maybe) it’s AMAZING!

  • Liza

    I have used their products in the past before and some were hit and miss but this collection looks interesting. I was going to get the mood lip gloss too but from your review I think I’ll pass, lol!.

    • the Muse

      so far most of what I’ve tried was cool ;-D not sure about the primer yet though kinda still testing so def will let ya know. you didn’t like it the review? ;-D I thought the gloss was awesome!

  • Liza

    So you did like it..I read it awhile ago and I remember you said it was a bit on the runny side.

    • the Muse

      yea I sure did ;-D was def runny but I put a Muse Approved on it for purchase ;-D! did you read the full review?

  • Liza

    I did awhile back but I’ll read it again. Not sure anyhow but I guess for that price what do I have to lose, lol!.
