FINALLY!! we have a NYX stand in my local boots!! Yes I got so excited when this happened as I used to order NYX stuff online so now I’m happy I can roam freely to actually browse and swatch before I buy. So I picked up a little basket and went crazy basically dragging Sam around going‘Oh bloggers say this is good!’ as I already had a ‘to try’ list in my head. As mentioned this isn’t the first time I’ve tried NYX as I used to order stuff from Boots online so I’ve tried and would recommend the Lip Cremes and HD Eyeshadow Primer this stuff is amazing and only £3.
By the time this post was being written I have actually tried some of these products so I can give a bit of a review from first impression but If all goes well I’ll be writing a detailed review on products mentioned.
For the face there are so many items I do want to try like highlighters, powders etc, but I needed a new drugstore concealer and I’ve heard good things about this HD concealer, this can be used under the eyes but it does cling to dry patches and lately I’ve been getting dry eyes so it didn’t look great but it does have high coverage for blemishes and covers redness I would even go as far as saying it’s as good as the collection one.
For the lips, I picked up quite a few lip products as they are the best. A soft matte lip creme in the shade Morocco which is a gorgeous orangey red shade perfect for summer time, a lingerie liquid lipstick in the shade Ruffle Trim which is a browny pinkish colour, a liquid suede cream in the shade Tea & Cookies, a slide on lip pencil in the shade Red Tape as I seem to have lost my red lip pencil.
For the eyes, I’ve always wanted to give there brow products a go as brow products are really popular right now so I picked up this tame & frame tinted brow pomade in the shade 02 Chocolate and the micro brow pencil in the shade 03 Auburn which comes with a spoolie on one end and a really fine pencil on the other, this is used for precise shaping giving that natural look but unfortunately I knew I should’ve followed my gut instinct and got this in shade 2 as this just comes out way to orange which my brows aren’t but with light enough strokes and a brow gel I can make this work, I think I’ll still pick this up in a different shade though. I’ve always wanted to try out the vivid brights eyeliner in the shade petal which is a purple colour, I think this will be my summer eye look with these eyeliners.
I’ll be reporting back with posts about how I get on with these so look out for these.
What’s your favourite NYX picks? I’d love to try more from this brand
