NYX Haul!


'The first of many' would probably be an understatement when it comes to NYX. I have wanted to try their products for literally around 3 years, and since they are now available online, I really had no excuse. I only received the package a few days ago and I'm already itching to blog about them; I can already tell I'm onto a winner.

I bought 2 'Mega Shine Lip Glosses' in the shades Nude Pink and Beige. I'm sure a lot of you have heard about 'Beige', purely because of the novelty in the fact that it really couldn't be further from the colour beige, it's more of a muted, dusky pink. The second shade, 'Nude Pink', is a beautiful, sheer peachy colour which would look beautiful over many different lipsticks. I can't forget to mention the fact they smell absolutely delicious. Just like those jelly cherries everyone fights for in the bag of Haribo, literally exactly like that... Heaven!

After hearing so much about the butter glosses, I just had to pick a couple up. I chose 'Apple Strudel' which is a gorgeous peachy, coral shade. The last one I picked up, 'Maple Blondie' Isn't too dissimilar, however on the lips it's more nude. In terms of formula, they aren't joking when they say it feels like butter. They glide on the lips and add a beautiful hint of colour without being overpowering.

Because I'm such a lipstick hoarder, I also picked up 2 lipsticks. The first one is 'Tea Rose' which isn't my favourite of the two, but I love the undertone in it. It's pink, but red, but nude.. If you know what I mean. A nice 'all-rounder' I suppose you could say. And then there is 'Narcissus' which is the closest thing to Barbie lips that I own. That being said, if you carefully dab your lips after applying it's a beautiful baby pink shade!

And lastly, the infamous jumbo eye pencil in 'milk'. I'm sure everyone has heard of this so I won't ramble (yeah, right...). It's perrrrrfect as an eyeshadow base of an eyebrow highlight and just glides onto the eyelids! Now I see what all the fuss is about.


Have you tried anything from NYX before? What is your favourite products from NYX?

Have a great day!
