So quite a while ago I went and bought all the shades from the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream range because it was a good deal for all the shades (about £4 each). Here is what NYX say: Neither lipstick nor lip gloss—this is matte lip cream. A new kind of pout paint that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some matte […]
I am a fan of the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils – I like them as a base for eyeshadows, because I do think they crease quite easily. I have already swatched a number of colours but when I saw four new additions (or newer!) I had to buy them! The shades are Purple Velvet, Electric Blue, Pure Gold and Rocky Mountain Green Swatches – each one appealed to me! As always, the texture is quite […]
I really like NYX products for their price, and I recently hauled two of the newer shades of blush in Red PB24 and Pinched PC25. The NYX blush packaging is ok, just simple black plastic: Red PB24 is super bright! It reminds me of Nars Exibit A – BRIGHT BRIGHT BRIGHT LOBSTER BRIGHT. I love how offensively bright it is: I really like that there’s no glitter in this – it’s matte but so soft […]
NYX Lipsticks are so brill for the price – I purchased (quite a while ago, mind!) three lipsticks to add to my extensive collection. I bought Snow White, Sierra and Narcissus. Whilst I really like these creamy, pigmented lipsticks I have to say the packaging is just so so. It’s not the way it looks or how it feels, I just mean that I find it comes away with the base a lot. Don’t get […]
Can anything good come of uber chunky glitter? Some say yes. Some say no. I am somewhere in the middle as the disco queen in me loves glitter and spangle and would happily be a bingo caller at the weekends. But then as you get older there is definitely such a thing as TOO MUCH GLITTER, ARE YOU JUST WEIRD? Also I have sensitive eyes (will hopefully be making my next you tube video on […]
Remember at high school, when you used to use Tippex on your nails, or felt tip on your eyes? No? I must’ve went to a particularly degenerative high school because some of the classic things my peers did to themselves (and each other) included: 1. Using Tippex on nails (this is a classic) 2. Using Tippex as eyeliner 3. Using black permanent marker as eyeliner 4. Stapling nails 5. Giving each other love bites on […]
I saw a You Tuber used this lip gloss in their video (I don’t remember who it was, sorry!) but it looked so pretty and sparkly! This is NYX Round Gloss in Sorbet, a pale pink with fine silver sparkle: I think I prefer the texture of the round gloss, as opposed to the mega shines, although, I have had packaging issues with the round glosses. I the wand tends to fall out of the […]
Final part of my NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss Swatches! Today is Sugar Pie (first from the left) the lightest shade of the 6 I bought. It turns into a whitish-silvery-pink on me with some fine sparkle: What do you think?
