A few nights ago I was scrolling through the Boots website and came across the brand NYX… I’ve bought a couple of their ‘Soft Matte Lip Cream’ lipsticks before, but the urge to get more took over and before I knew it I had a basket full of their products. Eventually I managed to narrow it down to the things that really caught my attention and ended up purchasing 4 lipsticks, an eye shadow quad and a beautiful blush. If you wanna see what I bought in more detail keep scrolling!
So the first item I decided to keep in my basket was the ‘Full Throttle Shadow Palette’ in the colour ‘Riot’. This cute, little quad has the perfect combo of shadows including 3 matte and 1 shimmer. These shades are definitely on trend at the min with a deep orange and red, a sunset orange and shimmery cream colour shadow. The palette is quite pigmented and you definitely get your moneys worth and at just £9 you can’t really go wrong.
I then made sure this stunning ‘Ombre Blush’ in the colour ‘Insta Flame’ kept a place in my basket, the colour just grabbed my attention.. I had to have it! I love the way NYX have blended two shades into one to help create the perfect blush which will add more dimension to the face instead of one flat colour. I can’t wait for summer because I think this is gonna look amaze with a tan.
Obviously I had to add some lipsticks in there and it was soooo hard to narrow it down to just a few. I opted with 3 ‘Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick‘which are all matte. I’ll start with the shade ‘Cherry Skies’ which is a deep, vampy red – I cannot wait to wear this as statement make up look with subtle eyes and glowy skin. I also bought the shade ‘Vintage’ which is a bold, dark purple shade. This is a super sexy colour, I LOVE IT. And last but not least (probably my favourite of the bunch) the shade ‘Sandstorm’. I know everyone raves about this shade but it is the most perfect nude I’ve ever come across, it’s got that retro 90’s vibe that I love and I’ve wore it nearly everyday since I got it. I looooooove it! The pigmentation of these lipsticks are fab, although they’re matte they’re super comfy to wear and don’t go bitty as they wear off which is bonus, I’ll definitely be purchasing more of these gems. At £6.50 each they are an absolute steal.
I bought 1 more lip product and that was a ‘Lip Lingerie Lipstick’ in the shade ‘Teddy’ (cutest name ever, I know). I found this one to be a bit more thicker in consistency but still really pigmented! ‘Teddy’ is a dark nude perfect for taking a look from day to night. These are just £6.50!
