NYX Haul

Ever since Boots began stocking NYX in the UK I've been wanting to try out a few of their well-raved-about products. Now I'm back home in Norwich I popped into my local store and spent a good amount of time swatching all the products in store. I wanted to share with you what beauty treats I added to my basket and what my initial impressions are of the products. So if you've been wondering about what NYX products you should pick up from Boots then keep on reading.
I have heard a lot of good comments about NYX lip products so I definitely knew this would be at the top of my 'to-buy' list. The two I decided to pick up in the end, look very similar, but offer a completely different look, with one being matte and the other glossy. The matte shade is Cannes, a cult classic among many NYX lovers and the butter gloss is in the shade Tiramisu. The two formulas feel comfortable on the lips and surprisingly, last for a long period of time, the matte gloss more so that the butter gloss. I tend to gravitate towards wearing the Tiramisu during the day and stick to wearing Cannes for evening looks, however both shades would be suitable for either occasion as they are neutral in colour. I am very much impressed with the value for money with this product and I am definitely looking at what shades I should buy next. The third and final product I picked up during my trip was one of their baked blushers in the shade Chiffon. So far I'm not very impressed with the formula of this blush as it is very dry and not as pigmented as I had originally hoped. For the price I feel like blusher is quite underwhelming compared to other drugstore brands like Sleek, however I am going to work with it and see if my opinions change. Whilst in store I was looking at the brushes that NYX offer, however a lot of them were out of stock in my store so I will have to head back another day once I've decided which one I should add to my collection.

I hope you enjoyed having a peek into my shopping bag at what I bought from NYX. Let me know in the comments below what products you've tried from NYX and which shades are your favourites.

  1. The butter gloss was the first thing I picked up when Nyx appeared in my local Boots. I also got the micro brow pencil but wasn't a fan of it, the pencil was too hard and didn't give off enough colour!
