The only NYX products I had tried before this haul were the Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks, however I still felt like I had a NYX shaped hole in my life, so I went ahead and bought a few more products from their line. I have read so many blog posts about the Soft Matte Lip Creams over the past few months and years, so of course I had to try a few of those. While I was at it I added two of their eyeshadows to my basket, and then the following day I picked up one of their lip liners after seeing the most beautiful swatches of it online. Someone take my purse away from me so I stop spending, please!
The Soft Matte Lip Creams I have (from L to R) are Cairo, Athens and Rome. The lip creams are very lightweight and glide onto the lips so easily. They feel very smooth and creamy and almost somewhat moisturising upon application. When they set, they dry matte however feel very comfortable and don’t feel too drying. My favourite out of them all is probably Rome, however I can see myself wearing Athens the most for everyday wear, as it’s a lovely nude peachy pink shade. Rome is a beautiful cranberry shade, which is absolutely gorgeous for the evening but it could definitely be worn throughout the day too. Cairo is a shade I am still slightly unsure of. It seems to wash me out a lot and it’s definitely not as pigmented as the two other shades. The only way I have managed to wear it is by applying a small amount of it in the middle of the lips after applying the NYX lipliner I bought (which I am about to tell you all about) and blending the two together to create a subtle ombre effect.
The Slide On Lip Pencil in Nude Suede Shoes has got to be one of my new favourite lip liners (yep, already). It really does slide on as the name suggests as the formula is just so creamy, which I love as I hate lip liners that you have to physically tug across your lips. The shade is pretty much my idea of the perfect pinky nude shade. The colour is so opaque and there’s the perfect balance of pink and brown in it, making it a definite my lips but better shade. I wore this to death on holiday and have worn it non-stop since I’ve been home too. This lip liner is definitely a winner in my eyes!
And finally, I picked up two of the Hot Singles Eyeshadows in (from L to R) Sex Kitten and Flustered. I don’t have shades too similar to these in my collection, and at only £3.50 each I had to try them out. Sex Kitten is a pearly peachy gold shade and Flustered is the most gorgeous pearly rust/cranberry shade. Flustered is showing a little more red in the photo, however in real life it is a little more cranberry in tone. For £3.50, the pigmentation of these eyeshadows are pretty darn good. I’ve been on the hunt for a rust/cranberry shade for ages now, so Flustered has to be my favourite out of the two. I’ve been wearing it a lot in the outer corners and through the crease and it looks beautiful, and I think it makes my pale green eyes stand out a little more too.
So, there you have it. All in all, I am very impressed with these products from NYX, and I’m still itching to try more products from them. Keep your eyes peeled for potential future NYX hauls!
