Product Review – NYX BB Cream in the Shade ‘Nude’

March 29, 2017

After returning home from Costa Rica, my tan began to quickly fade (thanks to cold Toronto weather) and updating my foundation became a necessity! That’s when I discovered NYX BB Cream.

I have extremely dry skin (thanks to the extremely dry Canadian winter) and as a result, BB creams usually don’t ‘sit’ well on my skin.  They typically don’t provide a lot of coverage and become flaky/patchy after a couple of hours.  Not this product!  I have fallen in love with this BB cream!   The product blends well and leaves my skin feeling hydrated.  It also provides buildable coverage that lasts long and rarely requires touch ups.

I purchased the shade: Nude.  Unfortunately, they only have three shades (Nude, Natural and Golden) which is not ideal.  The package contains 30MLs of product and comes in a squeezable tube.  I like the tube packaging because I know the product is secure and there will be no unexpected ‘spillage’ in my purse. However, the tube is also a little irritating when trying to squeeze the actual product onto a brush or sponge, because it spills out aggressively and can get a little messy. I love that NYX products have the PETA bunny on the packaging, so it’s easily identifiable as cruelty-free ♥!

The NYX BB Cream costs $15.00 CAD.

Personally, I don’t consider this BB cream overpriced (especially when comparing it to ‘high end’ foundations or bb creams) and it’s definitely worth the money knowing that no animals were harmed in order to create the product.


Perfection in a tube. This lightweight miracle worker was developed to hydrate and prime for a complexion that looks perfectly beautiful. The result is skin that appears smoother and more radiant. The luxurious oil-free and mineral enriched formula brightens smoothes moisturizes and provides coverage.


Final Thoughts:

I love NYX BB Cream and I will definitely be purchasing this product again.  Especially knowing that this product works great with my (dry) skin type.  This NYX BB Cream will be ideal for spring and summer days when I want a more natural and flawless look.

    thank you for this review, it’s very helpful. i’m looking for ideal bb cream and you inspired me to try this one. it’s just i’m afraid even nude shade will be to dark for me as other bb creams (i always go for the lightest) 😔but it doesn’t hurt to try though! 😊
