NYX Matte Lipsticks // Perfect Summer Red

I can’t quite believe that up until about 3 months ago I didn’t own any NYX Cosmetics Products! On my recent splurge at York Designer Outlet they were having a NYX clearance in the Next store and I picked up some super cheap NYX products, two of them being NYX Matte Lipsticks!  When I first saw these I hesitated a little, but I’m so glad I picked them up! I only wish that I had have picked them up in even more shades!

DSC_1188The two shades  I bought were Indie Flick and Bloody Mary. I was so surprised how amazing these lipsticks were, I think I only paid £3.00 each for them (£7.00 from NYX) so I wasn’t expecting much but I was amazed to find some of the most pigmented and buttery lipsticks I’ve ever owned. They are matte lipsticks and so often matte lipsticks can be very drying! One of my favourite reds is a matte lipstick from MAC called Dangerous but the NYX lipsticks are a lot more rich and buttery and not drying at all!  Continue reading

NYX Cosmetics Gel Liner and Smudger Review // MOTD

  If you follow me on Instagram  you may have seen the NYX Gel Liners that I picked up at an absolute bargain on £2 each in the Next Clearance store along with lots of other bargain NYX products. The colours I bought were Matte Teal and Cobalt Blue, they’re definitely not colours I would usually wear but they looked so gorgeous and for £2 I couldn’t resist. You can buy it off the NYX Website for £8 and it is available in 5 different shades.
