I’ve used NYX for a few years now, I started off using the Jumbo Eye Pencils and have always loved the brand. When I heard it was finally coming to Boots stores and saw mine would be stocking it, I got so excited and couldn’t wait to grab a few bits. I didn’t get as much as I had planned but I am happy with what I chose so here’s a little NYX haul for you.
I was set on getting a couple of shades from the new Lingerie line however my new stand didn’t stock them which was a let down but in general it’s a pretty big stand and they did sell pretty much everything else that’s available. I have found them online however there’s three shades I want and only two are in stock so I’m going to wait until I can get them all at once so no doubt they will be on the blog soon, hopefully.
I had an idea of what I wanted to buy, I definitely wanted to try the Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator, I chose Sunbeam as it just suited my skin tone better and I also knew I wanted the Tame & Frame Tinted Brow Pomade as I have always wanted to give the Anastasia Beverley Hills one a try but I can’t justify the price. I picked up the shade Brunette which is a tad lighter than my natural brow shade but I can get away with it.
The lip products took a while to choose, I was getting bashed left right and centre, one women even stood directly in-front of me while I was swatching away, people were being so rude so I waited for them all to go to the other side before I got stuck in properly. I tend to stick to the same shades, dark plum colours suit me but I’ve discovered that fuchsia’s and bright pinks don’t so I got stuck in and purchased colours I knew would suit me and that I would wear.
First up is a Liquid Suede in the shade Tea & Cookies this is your typical “my lips but better shade” and the formula is lovely, a semi-matte with a slight sheen, it’s so beautiful. I have a thing for liquid/matte lipsticks at the moment, I just can’t stop buying them, I’ve bought seven in the past couple of weeks! Next I bought an Intense Butter Gloss in the shade Toasted Marshmallow, this is a dark plum colour and although I’m not usually a gloss fan, the shade was too good to pass up, plus it smells like vanilla. Finally I bought a Soft Matte Lip Creme in the shade Copenhagen which is similar to Toasted Marshmallow but slightly more berry toned and of course has a matte finish.
I can’t wait to wear all this shades, I won’t be saving the darker ones until A/W I’m going to rock them now because they are just so pretty. I will probably post a little review of all these products, hopefully including the Lingerie lippies too so keep your eyes peeled for that.
