If you're not watching the Netflix original series Sex Education, you're missing out on some of the sharpest, funniest writing and acting occurring on any screen right now. The show follows high school student Otis, the son of a sex therapist, and his classmates as they navigate relationships, intimacy, and all of the issues that come with them. Understandably, even though there have been a few standout makeup moments in the show's two seasons, it may not seem like the most obvious choice for a beauty-brand collaboration. But leave it to the creative minds at Nyx Professional Makeup to school us by coming up with a Sex Education collection that totally captures the comedy's vibes.
Each item in Nyx's Sex Education collection is inspired by one of the beloved characters. "We really took a deep dive into each of the characters because they're all so unique and special in their own way, and yet they’re all so relatable," Nyx global president Yann Joffredo tells Allure, adding that the collection is an extension of the brand's LGBTQ+ allyship and commitment to diverse representation and inclusivity. "We thought, if we had to choose Nyx Professional Makeup products that best fit each of the characters in the show, what would they be? We were able to recreate product stories and have each one take on a new identity under the Sex Education lens."
Otis inspired the hilariously named Always On Top Matte Setting Spritz. Maeve inspired the equally suggestive Bush Tamer Instant Brow Styler, which holds brows in place for 16 hours, and Ola inspired the 1st Base Blurring Primer, made to minimize the look of pores and lines while gripping onto foundation.

As for the color cosmetics in the collection, the Juicy Secret Lip Gloss, a warm honey shade, is inspired by Aimee, while the Magic Maker Pressed Pigment Eye Shadow Palette, which features six super vibrant jewel-tone shades, is inspired by Eric. The Jumbo Eye Pencil Set, which comes with six crayons in both neutral and vivid colors, is brought to you by the Moordale AV Club.

This marks Nyx's second collaboration with a show on the streaming service, the first being its Spellbook Palette with Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Needless to say, it's exciting to see Nyx expand beyond a single product with its latest Netflix project.
Nyx's Sex Education collection, ranging from $5 to $25, launches on August 28 at nyxcosmetics.com, just in time for the season three premiere on September 17.
