NYX HAUL | March 2016




I have been dying to get my hands on some NYX products ever since they started being stocked in Selfridges in London. There low price point and innovative products caught my attention way back and after finding a tiny stall in a make-up shop in New Jersy, I picked up some Jumbo eye pencils and Butterglosses and was super impressed. This time I picked up 3 more things to add to my collection.

The HD concealer has been raved about across the blogging world. Being an acne sufferer I'm always on the hunt for a great full coverage concealer that looks natural but not cakey. Unfortunately the crappy lighting in there meant that the shade I picked up 03 (light/pale) is slightly too peachy for blemishes and so works much better underneath the eyes to cancel out any dark circles.  It's got a good amount of coverage without being too heavy, a great way of getting into colour correcting with out going all Instagram on that shit. It's formulated without talc and parabens which is always a good thing and it also photographs beautifully. 

The one item from NYX I've wanted the most was the Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade Copenhagen, ever since I saw this Pin on Pinterest. This gorgeous deep berry shade is perfect for Autumn/Winter. Obviously we're heading into spring/summer but just incase I never get a chance to back into Selfridges before September, I know I've safely got Copenhagen tucked away in my collection. However for the summer months I picked up the shade Morocco which is a bright orange/red. If you read my blog last summer you would have seen I was on the hunt for the best orangey/red lipstick and so every time I see one, I have to pick it up! I love the formula of these, they apply evenly with an incredible punch of colour, however the longevity isn't all that great. Avoid wearing these when you know you're going to be eating otherwise you'll be left with a ring of colour around the edges of your lips. But the finish is lovely and matte, not the most hydrating of formulas but it seems that hydration and matte don't go hand in hand. 

NYX is now being stocked on ASOS so I might pick up some lighter shades in the concealer to try out. What are your favourite products from NYX?
