NYX Arrival! What I Bought...

NYX haul

Oh my oh my, I'm so excited about this post! NYX has recently arrived in the UK and let me tell you, I didn't even know about it until my sister informed me. So, I headed to my closest Boots store and must have been standing at the counter for about forty minutes admiring the products. Obviously, I couldn't buy everything I fell in love with as I'm not a billionaire, oh how I wish I was.

NYX sculpt and highlight review

NYX haul blog post

I was in desperate need of a new eyebrow pencil as I was on the verge of having no pencil left. I usually stick by my New Cid Cosmetics I-groom pencil but paying the price at £19.50 and then paying for delivery and waiting for it, I thought I'd try a new product and boy am I glad I did! At just £8, NYX Sculpt & Highlight Brow Contour (Vanilla/Taupe) does the exact same job as my New Cid pencil and it's the exact same colour! I find that Sculpt & Highlight is more creamy and a little easier to apply. The highlighter is stunning too, it's not too 'white' or too shimmery.

NYX HD primer

After running out of my fave eye primer a few weeks back, I just picked it up without thinking twice. I'm absolutely thrilled with this primer! It makes your eyeshadow look brighter and lasts all day/night which is what everyone needs. It's a nice creamy consistency and very lightweight and easy to apply. For only £5.50, this HD primer is worth it!

Okay, so I didn't have a clue what lip product to buy, there was so many I had my eye on. I was also looking for the lingerie lipsticks but they weren't there so I'll have to try another store in my city another time. I came across this matte lipstick in 'Whipped Caviar' for £6.50 and it's such an admirable colour that would suit everybody. I love the texture, it's soft and creamy to apply and it doesn't make your lips look or feel dry which you can sometimes get from other matte lipsticks, which is a huge no from me. And because it doesn't look or feel dry, it still has an amazing matte finish which I love. It's long lasting and it doesn't come off or smudge when you eat or drink. I'm definitely going to buy some more of these!

  1. I love NYX but haven't got around to trying any of these products yet! I love the shade of lipstick you've picked up and the eyeshadow primer base sounds lovely, I'll definitely pick it up next time I'm near a counter. My favourite NYX product is their HD Finishing Powder.
