Recently I took a wee trip to the NYX counter to try out some new goodies! I’ve only really tried the lipsticks at NYX so I thought it was about time that I branched out and try something different.
So the first thing I picked up was this bright orange Ombré blush. I love this! The consistency of this blush is surprisingly pleasant. It’s not too chalky which is great and as you can see it is highly highly pigmented. It certainly isn’t an everyday go to for me since it is super orange but it’s great when you want to make a statement!
The next thing that caught eye were these metallic liquid lip liners. Now, I know I said at the start that I needed to branch out from lipsticks at NYX but these were too exciting to walk by! A liquid lip liner?? These are not what I ever expected – but I’m not sure what I was expecting anyway! I got the colours Heatwave and Magnetic and I have to say I am in love with them! The colour names pretty much speak for themselves; Heatwave is a gorgeous metallic red and Magnetic is a silver with a blueish tinge. These apply really nicely on the lips, it’s a little awkward at first just getting used to the small brush but it is so worth it for the lasting power these bad boys have.
Last but not least I picked up the NYX skinny mascara. The wand is super fragile on this masacara and the comb barely comes away from the wand. I find that it gives you a ‘no make up’ make up look so it is great for days when you want to just wear a little bit of make up. It doesn’t necessarily give you any length or lift but regardless I do like it. I find I use this mascara when I put another mascara on top and it looks a lot better.
So that’s my little NYX Haul for you! NYX is a brand that I used to love so much and for a while I completely forgot about it but after this little spree I’ve fallen back in love with them. They are super inexpensive and the quality of their products are so good. A perfect brand for when you want to try out a bold lipstick or eyeshadow!
Bye for now!
