Ingredients

Brand Overview

This is a very standard but good liquid makeup remover that contains silicone and solvents. It quickly removes even the most stubborn or waterproof makeup. This would be rated higher if it didn’t contain fragrance and fragrant orange extract, two ingredients you should be wary of using so close to the eyes.

Jar Packaging: No
Tested on animals: No
Water, Cyclomethicone, Isohexadecane, Butylene Glycol, Sodium Chloride, Benzyl Alcohol, Fragrance, Sodium Citrate, Poloxamer 184, Disodium EDTA, Citric Acid, Cetyl Trimethyl Ammonium Chloride, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Hull Extract, Vigna Radiata Seed Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, and Dipropylene Glycol. May Contains: D&C Green No. 6.

Smashbox At-A-Glance

This small Los Angelesbased 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 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, and the line can also be found at Target and Nordstrom Rack, 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.
