Mid June time you might remember seeing a NYX wishlist after I realised that a counter was opening near me, well this is the haul from that venture. I decided to treat myself to a few bits to start with which didn’t make a particularly thrilling post. Then soon after I went on a shopping trip with some childhood friends to Reading and we spent a fair amount of money, especially on NYX as they had a counter twice the size of my local one. And then finally I took a trip out with my aunt who kindly got me a couple of bits to add to my collection. So I’ve ended up with quite a few products to show you today!
Unsurprisingly, as you can see, most of the products I got are for the lips which is strange for someone who has incredibly dry lips, but maybe I’ll test their moisturising capabilities. The the other products are all for eyes so clearly subconsciously I must believe I have the perfect base already.
I couldn’t not try Baby Doll from the Lip Lingerie range. It looked the perfect light nude and to an extent it is. It didn’t look quite so light in the shop when I swatched it but I still quite like it. Baby Doll is a light peachy colour and it dries matte. Sadly it doesn’t smell particularly nice, it hasn’t got the vanillary scent of the soft matte lip creams. I was also lusting over the Liquid Suede cream lipstick in Tea & Cookies which I managed to pick up with my aunt when we went shopping. It is the perfect neutral pink, not too out there. Again this doesn’t smell great, in fact it smells very chemically but if it works, I won’t argue. Now the lipstick in Pure Red I got when I dragged my boyfriend shopping, very much against his will. I asked him to choose me something and surprisingly he chose a lipstick that I would actually wear. Then I bought myself two more Soft Matte Lip Creams in Copenhagen and Prague. I love the lip creams, they’re long lasting on me and they smell really good.
Then onto the eye products, starting with the Tame & Frame Brow Pomade in Brunette. I definitely knew I wanted to try a brow pomade but I couldn’t at first decide whether to get blonde or brunette. The obvious choice would have been blonde as I am blonde, however, I settled on brunette because when I swatched it, it looked a lot more me. The blonde was slightly warm toned which on a pale girl like myself doesn’t suit. The two Jumbo Eye Pencils are in Rust and Milk. Milk has to be the cult favourite as a base colour to make eyeshadow pop. Then I’ve been really liking burgundy shades so I had to get Rust which is a gorgeous burnt red. Finally my aunt kindly got me one of the Vivid Brights liner in Vivid Halo. It is a really bright yellow that is exceptionally outside of my comfort zone but last year I saw a picture of Marina and the Diamonds with yellow liner and I needed to try it. And now I can
So there is what I have in my NYX collection so far, what else do you think I should add?
