NYX haul.

Hello everyone,

I hope you’re all having a sweet week. I have some exciting news (more exciting than the super items I picked up from NYX on Saturday). I’m in CANADA! My boyfriend, Josh & I landed on Friday & have been soaking up the fabulousness of Toronto. One of the fabulous things about Toronto is the NYX Make-Up store on Queen St. Of course I had to go & check it out, I love NYX, it’s such a quality, affordable make-up brand that I think everyone should be enjoying.

I picked up four items from the flagship store on Queen St West, it took a mountain of self control not to walk out with the whole store in my bag.

Ok, now into the goodies!

  1. NYX HD Studio Photogenic Finishing Powder: SFP01

I used to be a big fan of setting my make-up when I was in my late teen years & for some reason I moved away from the setting powders so I thought it was definitely time to give setting another go & as I don’t need anymore coverage on my face over foundation (I love my freckles to show through still) this white setting powder seemed perfect.

2. NYX Face & Body Glitter: 08 Bronze

The only thing I need to say here is GLITTER! Amazing, pigmented, shimmery glitter goodness. Just be warned this shit goes everywhere, I woke up the next day (even after taking my make-up off the night before) & looked like I had been attacked by Mardi Gra – not that I am complaining because glitter is life. I picked up the bronze glitter as I am a massive fan of chocolate smokey eyes & I thought this shade would be the most complimentary.

3. NYX Glitter Primer: GLIP01

Obviously glitter is not complete without some fabulous primer to stick it down. I picked up the matching primer for the NYX glitters & have nothing negative to say about it. There is no heavy sent which sometimes happens in glitter primers / glues, the formula is smooth & easy to apply with a brush & you have some work time to get the glitter onto the lid post application. Plus the packaging is perfect.

4. NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme: SMLC31 Moscow

AMAZING. PERFECT. BLUE.

I am a sucker for blue lipstick, I don’t know why but I just love it. This shade is super special, the chance to build the colour is my favourite aspect, the first  coat is a washed navy & as you build the colour just grows in intensity. The formula is dry within 10mins & stays like a dream. If that was not enough it smells like VANILLA – YUM!

I just like to finish off with a huge thank you to everyone who takes the time to read my blog! I love you all & stick with me on this make-up journey!
