Caught my eye // NYX

9.9.13

NYX-Make-up
I've heard good things about NYX.  They're a bit of a beauty blogger cult budget product, but can be tricky to track down.  So when I found them on 123hairandbeauty.co.uk (and with free delivery!!), I eagerly put together a little wishlist.

Up first is, a staple (I think) NYX product - the Soft Matte Lip Cream.  The shade Antwerp's caught my eye, and is a corally-pink.  Speaking of lips, I couldn't resist adding this Jumbo Lip Pencil in Hot Red to my list.  It's an orangey-red, need I say more?

Lately I've been waxing lyrical about wanting a new highlighter, and whilst this Illuminating Bronzer isn't quite what I had in mind, from what I've seen in swatches it's a beautiful peachy, rose gold colour.  And a bargain at £8!  I've also picked out Taupe Powder Blush, a definite beauty blogger fave.  From what I've heard, this is a great contour shade.

Finally, perhaps the first NYX products I ever heard of were the Jumbo Eye Pencils.  I've never tried them, but I imagine them to be a little like a MAC Paint Pot in a stick?  Working as a primer or even a shadow on their own.  I've stuck to what I know, and picked out French Fries and Sparkle Leopard; both rich, reddish brown shades.

Have you ever tried NYX before?  I'm unsure as to whether these products will make it from their places on my wishlist and into my collection, but it's good to know there's a UK website stocking a fair range of NYX products!

    1. Do River Island stock them? I've got a feeling I've seen NYX by the till sometimes, but never any of the good, cult things! x

  4. I have a NYX eyeshadow palette and I think it is brilliant. It's the 'champagne & caviar' colour palette which is pretty neutral and I use it everyday for my work make-up (I'm an LSA too) but it also has colours which can be used for nights out too. I've never purchased the Urban Decay Naked Palette but I imagine the NYX one a relatively good budget version of it.

    1. The Naked Palette isn't a "must have", in my opinion....the palette you have definitely sounds like a good buy though! x
