NYX Beauty Haul

NYX Beauty Haul
When it comes to beauty products, I always seem to gravitate towards the same brands because I know I love them. I'm a bit of a creature of habit, you see. I'm trying to branch out a little more and try new brands this year (I wouldn't want to be missing out now would I?!). I've been meaning to try NYX for a while after reading great reviews but I'd just never got round to placing an order. That was until I was browsing the Boots website and noticed that they'd started stocking the brand so I swiftly filled my basket!


HD Primer Base - I didn't personally get on with this product as I'm not a big fan of the consistency. When it comes to primers, I like a good gel formula really (personal preference!). It's more like a moisturiser and felt a bit too thick on my skin for my liking.  It did keep my makeup on for a fair few hours though, so I guess I shouldn't complain.

HD Concealer in Porcelain- I know this is a big statement but I'm putting it out there that this concealer is even better than the much hyped Nars Creamy Concealer. I own both and I actually prefer NYX. You do need a little more in order to get the same coverage as the Nars concealer but I find that this one is easier to blend and is great for creating those light areas for your base.

Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen- This lip cream is an absolute dream. Just gimme this entire collection right now! I absolutely love this dark berry colour and it's perfect for the winter months. It's not the most long lasting lip cream I've ever tried but I didn't have to reapply constantly either. I did find that it was slightly drying on the lips but nothing major. I have a feeling this will be one of my most used lip colours this year.

Wicked Lippies in Cold Hearted & Betrayal- Can we just take a brief moment to appreciate the beauty of these lipsticks? Wicked Lippies have an amazing array of metallic, bold lipsticks- everything from green, blue and purple. These colours are the total opposite to what I would normally go for but I really fancied trying them out. Surprisingly, I absolutely love them but I need to find the right makeup look to go with them. They won't be included in my daily wear but I think they'd look great for going out for something a bit different and adventurous.

Dewy Finish Setting Spray- I'm really happy with this product and I've already incorporated it into my daily makeup routine. I'm not completely sold on setting sprays as I'm just not overly convinced that they make a huge difference to the longevity of your makeup. However, I've been spritzing this onto my beauty blender to set my makeup and it does give a slight dewy finish. Not a life changing product but it's refreshing if nothing else!

I'm SO impressed with this brand and I can't wait to add lots of other products to my collection.

  5. I've never seen NYX products - are they in Superdrug or Boots? I like the fact that you broke each product down.

    Lovely post.

  12. I've been meaning to try NYX since Boots started stocking them, too, but there always seems to be so many options, it's almost overwhelming! But having read through your post, the lip products seem like a good place to start, and I'll definitely grab that concealer after your glowing review!
