NYX Best Bits
NYX is pretty new to the UK and boy, are we glad it’s here! The brand allows you to create professional makeup looks with few products and at a cheap price. The company began stocking in boots but have also recently opened there own shops in some prime locations meaning it is so easy to get your hands on these amazing products.
This post is going to be about some of the things I have recently picked up from NYX. I will also be giving you a little mini review/first impressions.
Honey Dew Me Up
I decided to buy this primer as it reminded me so much of the Guerlain l’or radiance with the gold little flecks. Obviously I haven’t tried the one from Guerlain but I was pleasantly surprised by this one! As it has honey I thought there was a risk that it could be a bit too sticky but it definitely isn’t. The product feels very premium. The primer is very stringy originally but really smooths out your canvas. It also is very moisturising and refreshing. I would say that unless you have super dry skin there would be little need for a moisturiser underneath. The primer appears to reduce puffiness around the eyes because of the cooling effect it has. The packaging is also pretty. It sits so nicely on my dressing table. I’m actually a fan of the spatula as it gives you the right amount of product each time.
Green Colour Corrector
The hunt for a good green colour corrector has been on for years due to my bad acne. Having never wished to splurge on one, i decided to try this one as a happy medium. You do get quite a lot of product for the price and my gosh is it pigmented. What I like about this corrector is that it is darker green compared to others I’ve tried. This means it appears to correct more deeply as opposed to the top (if that makes sense?!). This corrector comes with a doe foot applicator which I don’t like on concealers. I’m a germaphobe, I know. I tend to apply to the back of my hand first before applying to my face. The product is so pigmented so you only need a little. Trust me. Otherwise, it can give you a mouldy tinge- not pleasant!
Matte Lip Creams
It is no secret that I absolutely love these lipsticks. They have featured on my blog before. The amount of bottles of Stockholm I have gone through is insane! As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, I was desperate to get my hands on the colour Zurich. The reasoning being as I used to live not far from Zurich and the colour was stunning. It is slightly more pink than Stockholm so compliments my pale skin and eyes well. I finally managed to pick this up in the states but I do think it is in stock at boots now! Typical. I won’t bore you with the nitty gritty details of these lipsticks as you can go over to my other post to read more of an in depth review. Click here to find that. I’ll leave you with one final comment though. You need these lipsticks now.
