I was so excited when NYX announced that they were launching in the UK. NYX products used to be so hard to get hold off, until they launched on Feel Unique, and then started to launch in a whole load of Boots in the UK. I had been waiting and waiting for out Boots to get NYX and finally the day came and I took a trip into town and did some serious damage.
I had only really ordered a couple of things off NYX products off Feel Unique’s website before so I was so excited to actually go in store and pick out what I wanted.
The first thing that really caught my eye was this Dewy Finish Setting Spray. I had been wanted a setting spray for a long while now and I had heard so much about the Urban Decay one, but I feel it is a little on the pricey side, so I went for this one. I love this spray, it really does set your makeup in place making it last longer. I’m not sure if it really gives you a ‘dewy’ finish but I love it anyway. They also do a matte one if you wanted to try that one out.
Te next thing I picked up was this Above & Beyond colour corrector concealer. I had been using something similar to this from MUA which was so cheap, but I found it was too oily for my skin and didn’t really help to cover my blemishes. The formula of this one is much thicker which I think helps cover your blemishes a lot more. I love this and have been using it almost everyday as I do get blemishes on my face. I fell like it is going to last me a really long time as it is only in a tiny pot but you really don’t need much when you’re using it.
I just had to pick up a safe matte lip creme, it was so hard choosing what colour to get and I totally wish I picked up a couple more whilst I was there. I picked this up in the colour 15 Athens. It is a gorgeous nude colour and totally wearable for everyday use. I had heard so much about these but had never tired one so I was so happy to finally know it lives up to it’s expectations. It is so easy to apply and drys within a couple of minutes living a soft matte colour on your lips that lasts so well. I definitely recommend picking one of these up if you haven’y tried them yet, they do them in a range of gorgeous colours.
I then thought that one lip product wasn’t enough, so I picked up another and I got the NYX liquid shade product in the shade Tea & Cookies which is a gorgeous pink and girly colour. I did want to pick up one of the NYX lingerie products but they unfortunately didn’t have those in store. But I am super happy with this product. It is a lot like the soft matte lip creme, but I fell this is a lot more pigmented and also stays on for a lot longer. The colours are a lot more bright and out there also I felt, so if you’re going for a more dramatic look I would definitely recommend on of these.
Top-Bottom Pink Cantaloupe, Natural.
I then couldn’t go home without lip liners could I? I picked up the Slide on, glide on, stay on & definitely a turn on waterproof, extreme colour lip liner. It’s the longest name for a lip liner I have ever seen! But it is a gorgeous peachy pink shade which is just perfect for summer. I also picked up a more natural nude colour in the retractable lip liner in the shade Natural. I love the fact this one is retractable as I hate fiddling around with a sharpener, it really puts me off some lip/eye liners.
I am so happy with all of the products that I bought recently, and I can’t wait to pick up some more. What do you recommend? I am definitely so glad that NYX has come to Boots, sorry bank account!
Love always, G x
