NYX pigments vs. MAC pigments

Recommended Posts

so i decided to do a little comparison of NYX pigments and MAC pigments because although i own both brands, i wanted to see the difference between the two. soo here goes smile.gif:

 

MAC

price: 19.50 for .26 oz

staying power: amazingg

colors: gorgeoussss

uses: everything and anything lol

in this pic jardin aires and nyx's nude looks almost exactly the same but in person jardin aires is more goldish pink and nyx nude is more of a beige-y shimmer (basically a cross between provence and jardin aires)

both very similar but kitchmas is more pinkish whereas baby pink pearl is more of a lilac

 

NYX

price: 3.00 for .06 oz

staying power: pretty good but tends to fade a little

colors: also very pretty

uses: i think their pigments are only to be used as loose shadows but i'm not 100% sure

all the shades have a highly reflective quality that u cant really see in the picture.

 

which do you guys like better, mac or nyx? i personally like MAC better because im such a sucker for MAC but NYX is really great for someone who doesnt want to break the bank and still get great quality smile.gif

Thanks for posting this topic. I've only tried the L'oreal pigment. Thanks for also posting the price per volume. I did the math and the NYX is the Cheapest, then MAC and L'oreal comes in dead last.

 

Has anyone tried studio direct pigments?

I really like both... I have between 40-50 MAC pigments, and the full set of NYX pearl pigments. The NYX is great quality for the price, as you can see with the pictures above. I have some MAC favorites though, such as Deckchair, Sunpepper, and a few others. Thanks for the pics!

I still like my MAC pigments better, but I bought the whole set of NYX pigments a couple of wks ago. For the price of nyx, it's worth the money and the color/quality is similar to MAC. I'm just not sure on the staying power yet as I haven't worn it often enough

I've got both and I do prefer my MAC ones. They NYX ones are great as they've got a few colours that MAC don't have. But I find the MAC ones have a deeper, richer colour and better staying power.

 

Thanks for doing the swatches.

NYX pigments are definitely a great option for the budget-conscious. I really don't see why NYX pigments can't be used as a multipurpose product like MAC pigments.

 

Thanks for the review and the swatches. That was helpful! smile.gif

Really? What kind of ways can you use MAC pigments that NYX pigments can't be used?

    • It is no secret that hair can often change with age. It does not always depend even on a haircut. However, have you tried to start care with natural oil again? If this doesn't help, I can only recommend using a hair straightener - https://womenmotorist.com/best-steam-hair-straightener/  I do this periodically when I want to see myself with a smooth haircut. This doesn't harm the hair if the procedure is performed no more often than a couple of times a week. You can try to understand how it will look in your case.
    • Moisturizer is also the best gift for someone.  The best moisturizer helps to get rid of skin related ailments and dry skin problem. So, I advise to chose the best moisturizer from the available brands in the market.
