Mini NYX Haul (●ω●)Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Oh my gosh, I am sososososo sorry about not blogging lately. Spring break was last week for me and all I did was play Pokemon White that whole week and I forgot all about blogging. I am soo sorry! This will never happen again.
Anyways, I stopped by Ulta for the first time in a year and decided to buy some NYX stuff.
I heard many people raving about the blushes by NYX and I only tried one (HD Grinding Blush) which I didn't really like so I decided to try the powder blush. I got the colour in Nutmeg because it looked similar to my Estee Lauder blush in Nude Rose. It's such a pretty natural colour and the best part is, it's matte.
The formula is suuuuuuuuper creamy and moisturising. Probably even more moisturising than my Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick but since this was so creamy, the lipstick bullet broke so I just depotted the whole thing.
Another lip product that I have been recommended was the Soft Matte Lip Cream and I got it in Stockholm which is the most perfect nude colour ever. And you guys know how much I love my nude colours.
It's soooo silky and lightweight and it has such a natural looking finish. Looks like you aren't even wearing lipstick unless you get one of the bright colours.
Finally I got the NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder. This has been on my wishlist forever! Black/Grey is the perfect match for my brows and the wax that comes with it is great! But as you can see, I changed the brush that comes with it. I replaced it with my Milani brow brush. The brush that came with the NYX one was just crap. It was too stiff and scratchy and all it could do was flick powder everywhere. But the spoolie is good so don't throw that away.
And finally, I bought the 10 Color palette in Caviar and Bubbles (it used to be called Champagne and Caviar but I don't know why they changed the name). I like some of the colours in this palette. I LOVE how it has a matte white, matte brown, and a matte black but some of the shimmery colours are repeated in this palette. It's called a 10 Color palette not 6.
The texture is soft but kind of a bit too soft. And the same as my previous 10 color palette, it's kinda too powdery so there is quite a bit of fallout but I just use my fingers to put on the eyeshadow so there is minimal fallout.
Again, I am suuuuuuuuper duuuper sorry about not blogging lately. This will not happen again!
Anyways, if you have any NYX products you recommend please let me know! I am always happy to try more NYX products.
Well, time for my nap time. I'll see you guys later!
