A NYX Cosmetics Haul

A NYX Haul & First Impressions
I did it, I finally broken my NYX makeup virginity if we don't include a rather old eye shadow stick. At laaast! My local Boots has opened a NYX stand and my goodness I want everything in site. A part from the hectic, chaos that stopped me getting a proper look, I managed to get my hands on a few goodies I have wanted to try for ages and figured why not celebrate this moment with a lil'old haul.

The first stand I somehow landed towards was lips and this area was definitely the busiest, packed with other makeup-addicts like myself. Despite the low on stock cream liquid lipsticks I managed to pick up a Liquid Suede Lipstick in 'soft-spoken' and a Lip Lingerie in 'lace-detail'. Both of which are a perfect 'your lips but better' shade that instantly gives your lips shape and a lovely finish. I wanted to try some of their Lip Liners so I picked up one in 'vanilla sky' and I have been wearing this every day. To go with this I have paired it with a Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade 'Stockholm'. I love the lip creams they are insanely matte so I sometimes like to add a bit of balm over them.

Something I have wanted to try for ages is the NYX Matte Setting Spray and finally I got one! Since I have oily skin I like to apply a matte finish to tone it down a little so this was perfect for that. I have tried this twice and so far it's definitely kept my oil and bay, but I may pop in for the dewy spray as well. The last thing I bought which to be honest I didn't really need but I was feeling spend-y was the Control Freak Eyebrow Gel. I chucked my Revlon eyebrow gel out ages ago and have felt bare since, these are great for giving your brows shape and control. 

After that shopping trip I am so excited to try out more stock and cannot wait to play around with my new bits!

What NYX products do you recommend??

    1. It's probably a good thing it's not sold near you as it's dangerous!

  5. They've just opened a NYX counter in my local Boots too. I popped in last week, but it was literally like a bloodbath of beauty junkies. I'm going to go really early again tomorrow morning, see if I can actually get a chance to have a look at what they have to offer. I've deffs got my eye on the liquid suedes, they look amazing!! :-) Fab post hun.

  6. I wish my local boots had a NYX stand :( I've been ordering online. I have softly spoken and its such a pretty shade. I'm huge fan of the Lip lingeries too. I really need to try the Setting spray. I really like everything from their HD line. The foundation, concealer and powder are brilliant xx

  7. I have a few products but I'm going to my first every NYX stand on Tuesday and I'm so excited to try some more bits out! I love their matte lip creams so much. I'm desperate to try to the Liquid Suede and Lip Lingeries, as well as the the Vivid Brights liners and Jumbo Pencils!

  8. My local Boots still doesn't have a NYX stand! I'm hoping there'll be one soon! I'm a huge fan of their Soft Matte Lip Creams and also the blush in Taupe - its a great contour and blush in one!

  11. I have a few Soft Matte Lip Creams and one Liquid Suede Lipstick but I bought them in France as I wanted to see the shades before buying and none of my local Boots (home and uni) don't have a NYX stand which is slightly annoying. However, I'm definitely willing to order from Boots online after trying them! I may have to pick up the setting spray too now.

  15. So pleased NYX is now available in most Boots! I had a little browse at the Liverpool counter the other day but didn't have time to make a purchase, really excited to try their liquid illuminator and a blusher though.
