I went to Manchester and Huddersfield just before Christmas for some time away and to visit my little sister, knowing that I was to make a trip down, I wanted to pick up a couple of things from Boots in Manchester where NYX is sold. As an american brand, NYX it's quite hard to get hold of, especially when there is a huge shipping cost and customs tax attached. I remember Next stocking NYX before it got removed a couple of years ago.
|NYX HIGH DEFINITION BLUSH IN BITTEN | HIGH DEFINITION FINISHING POWDER IN BANANA|
One of the things on my must have list was the HD Finishing Powder in shade Banana which helps reduce the appearance of an oily complexion while brightening and highlighting. I picked up a High Definition Blush in the shade Bitten - a deep red with a slight shimmer. I really want Taupe because of Nikki Tutorials, as she uses it to contour.
|NYX HOT SINGLE EYESHADOWS|
|HOT SINGLE EYE SHADOW - COSMIC | SHOW GIRL|
I picked up 2 Hot Singles Eye Shadows - which are single eye shadows pots in the shade Cosmic - a black shade with blue shimmer looking navy and Show Girl - a metallic copper. The NYX Hot Single eye-shadows are extremely pigmented and smooth, the pots also have a cute bow at the closure of the lid.
|FAR BACK TO FRONT: NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM IN COPENHAGEN | NYX LIQUID SUEDE IN SANDSTORM | NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM IN CANNES|
|FROM LEFT TO RIGHT: NYX LIQUID SUEDE IN SANDSTORM | SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM IN COPENHAGEN | SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM IN CANNES|
The NYX lip products are quite famous and overwhelming with the amount of different shades and forular options. I picked up one of latest release of the Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick which is a matte lip moose/cream formula, choosing the colour Sand Storm which is a brown nude. Adding into my basket the Soft Matte Lip Cream's in Copenhagen - a deep plum and Cannes - a pink mauve. I love how these lippies are named after famous cities, there is a huge collection which I am excited to try out.
That's all for my NYX haul, are you tempted to pick up a few items?
