Last month I received a huge selection of NYX cosmetics from the Boots review panel. I spent an afternoon playing about with different looks and decided rather than write one long post about each product I would select a small variety of my favourites.
So I decided to focus on these products as I have been using them every week! You can use all of them to create one or two looks which I will post at the end!
These metallic eye colours are amazing! The picture really doesn’t do it justice but the first silver/iridescent colour is called Frostbite. In some lights it shines blue and purple and it is perfect for the christmas season. I feel like a snow queen when I wear it!
The gold baked eyeshadow is ‘Lavish’ it is pictured on the end and is ideal for creating a brown smokey eye. You do need to use an eye primer beforehand with this one that can allow the colour to pop.
The middle shade is actually an eye pencil in the shade ‘Yoghurt and is so easy to use. I use it nearly everyday as it is really quick to apply and can transform a day look into an evening one.
Pictured on the far left is the black gel liner. Now I normally use a loreal pen and the maybelline gel on top to make sure my liner lasts all day and to make it look ultra black. However the nyx gel liner is really dark and you could just wear it on its own. It is smudge proof and easy to use. I would recommend this over the maybelline one.
The yellow and green are HD concealers and if you haven’t used this colours before then they are used underneath your normal concealer. So the green is used to neutralised red spots and patches and the yellow is used to brighten the face and ideal hiding eye bags.
Last is the above and beyond full coverage concealer. It comes in a cute pot but if you have long nails like I do you need to use a brush to get in there! It applies evenly and it blends in really well! This is another product I would highly recommend!
‘Bright Lights’ blush on the far left is a coral/orange colour which would look lovely in the summer alongside a golden tan. It does have a lot of excess powder so I wouldn’t carry it around in fear it would break.
The lipstick pictured in the middle is ‘Mars’ I use this nearly every day and wear it to work as it just finishes off a neutral day look perfectly. Surprisingly it is quite long lasting and I must add that it is moisturising! Hurray! No more dry matte lips!
The chunky dunk crayon is just like a giant lip balm. It is the shade ‘Peach fuzzy’ and just a handy on the go coloured balm similar to the maybelline baby lips. I really like this product it is just a quick fix to dry lips but adds a nice colour if you don’t feel like wearing a lippy.
Finally if you are feeling a little more adventurous, or you like to wear lots of colour these crayons are awesome and are really shiny! I don’t wear much colour on the my eyes but I have been experimenting with these and I think they are great. The shades pictured are ‘pacific’ and ‘purple violet’ you can get them other shades online!
This is the look I created using my Nyx products! I hope you enjoyed reading my post about my haul. If you have any questions or would like to share your looks and favourites of Nyx leave a comment!
