NYX COSMETICS EXPANDS RANGE IN SINGAPORE
Beauty brand NYX Cosmetics has relaunched in Singapore under L'Oreal Singapore, expanding its existing range of more than 100 products to more than 300 types of lip, eye and face make-up.
One new addition is the Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick ($19), a waterproof, brush-on lip colour that has a velvet-like texture and sets with a vibrant matte finish.
The expansion will also include limitededition launches that were previously not available here.
Another change that will please fans of the American brand is that they will no longer have to wait six months for new product ranges as these will launch here at the same time as in the United States.
NYX is available at all Sephora outlets and sephora.sg.
