So unless you've been living under some rock in a deep dark cave, you will have definitely seen that us bloggers have gone a little crazy for NYX. It's a brand that I've constantly seen raved about on YouTube especially by our beauty gurus over seas. I don't know where you've been able to buy it in the UK, but I always thought that it was a brand that was a little bit unaccessible; That is until now! Yep thats right, Boots now stock NYX which is just amazing. Sadly my local store isn't stocking yet (BOO), but you can get in online which is pretty much just as good. I've always wanted to try things from NYX, so as soon as payday came around I jumped at the chance to place an order, so I thought I would show you the things that I picked out.
The first things that went into my shopping basket was the new Lip Lingerie Lipsticks. I have been literally dying to get my hands on some of these. This range of lipsticks purely focuses on different shades of nudes (which is definitely so me right now). If I'm honest I could have picked up the whole collection if I wasn't watching the pennies, so I narrowed it down to just three. The shade I really wanted 'Embellishment' seems to be continuously out of stock, so I chose three others instead. I picked up 'Bedtime Flirt' which is a really wearable everyday nude, 'Exotic' a burnt orange nude and 'Honeymoon' which is a brown toned nude. I can just tell that I'm going to love these, so expect them to be featured in a blog post very soon.
I also had to pick up the Tame and Frame Tinted Brow Pomade. I've always wanted to try this type of product to use for my brows. I've seen so many strong brows when beauty gurus have used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade and this one is supposed to be a good dupe for it, so I can't wait to try it out. I'm hoping this will be the answers to my brows, its something I'm really rubbish at doing and quite frankly I need all the help I can get. I picked up the shade 'Espresso' as I have fairly dark brows, so helpfully this will work perfectly.
I'm only really a blush kind of girl in the summer and I've always heard a lot of good things about the NYX blushes. I don't know why but Boots aren't selling the box standard blush, the one that has the little grid like texture on the front, so I picked up one of the high definition blushers instead. It was really hard to tell on the website what these shades would look like and I couldnt really be bothered at the time to search online for swatches as theres so many to choose from. So I just hoped for the best and picked one that I liked the sound of. I chose the shade 'Intuition' and its so gorgeous. It's a dusty pink shade in the pan and you can see subtle gold reflexes. As soon as I swatched this I immediately thought of Nars Orgasm Blush - It looks like it might be the perfect dupe.
Lastly I picked up one of the Jumbo Eye pencils in the shade 'Milk'. For me this was a bit of a random purchase, as its not something I'll really ever use (I don't think so anyway). I've seen loads of YouTubers use this as an eye shadow base and it looks like it works great for when wearing brightly coloured eyeshadows. I just thought this is a really handy thing to have in my makeup collection and I don't have anything like it, so of course I had to pop it in my basket.
