NYX Haul


Recently Nyx counters have been popping up in Boots stores all over the UK and it's fantastic! I'm absolutely in love with all of the products, the packaging and especially the prices! The fact that my retail job enables me to be a pretty short walk away from Boots and therefore a brand new Nyx counter works wonders for my internal happiness and yet completely destroys the contents of my bank account. Lunch break shopping is never a great idea.

Over the past few weeks since the counter opened I've collected a few bits and bobs from Nyx and I thought I would share my opinions on them with you all.


Nyx Hot Singles Eyeshadows | £3.50 each - This is an absolutely amazing price for these really great quality eyeshadows. The colour stays all day and is so pigmented. I love how you can tap the product on a brush once and that's enough to blend over a whole eyelid without going back. There is also minimal fallout and the formula is extremely blendable.

Nyx Liquid Black Liner | £5.50 - The applicator for this product is very thin and is therefore perfect for creating a subtle line on the upper lid. The colour is jet black and does not fade throughout the day at all. My only criticism is that it can take some practice to get used to applying the formula neatly. They don't call it a liquid eyeliner for nothing!


Nyx Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator | £7 - Although this highlight can be used over foundation to create a glowy look, I personally use it for strobing. This makeup technique involves applying a liquid highlight to the areas you want to "glow" (i.e. cheekbones) underneath foundation to give a slightly more natural look. This way the foundation blends with the product, creating a very glowy/dewy coverage, particularly in the areas where most highlight is applied. To make the strobing effect work you need a very strong liquid highlight that will easily show through foundation and this does the trick! I have used many a liquid highlighter in my time and this is definitely in my top 3! For those of you looking for a liquid highlighter on a budget, this is the one to go for!


Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream | £5.50 - I LOVE the formula of these! For a matte lip product, they are not drying at all and are exactly the sensation that they claim to be - creamy. The only problem I have with these is that they do transfer quite easily. I wouldn't apply them without some kind of base lip pencil underneath to aid their staying power, as without this they only last about 4 to 5 hours.


Nyx Liquid Lingerie | £6.50 - The shades in this collection of nyx lip products are stunning. They come in mainly a variety of nude shades with this additional muted red tone. The colour of this is gorgeous and once again the formula is not drying at all, however, the staying power is no where near as good as it could be. I often test a lip products staying power during my 6 hour shifts at work. I think for a lip product to stay on for 6 hours (with a break for a quick snack/drink half way through) is a testimate to a strong they are in terms of staying power. Sadly, Nyx Lingerie lips did not pass this test and only lasted about 4 and a half hours before becoming patchy.

Overall, for the price I paid, these products are definitely worth it. The eyeshadows and highlighter are amazing! Although I was slightly disappointed with the staying power of the lip products, the colour range is amazing and if anyone suffers with really dry lips I would definitely recommend these as they have a very creamy texture.

  7. I also love the Matte Lip Creams and have four shades including the dark one you got, it was my go to last fall. Recently got a shade from the Lingerie collection and liked it, though I find it's not as comfortable to wear as the matte creams.

  11. I love the NYX soft matte lip creams, I have two of them and they are probably the only two items I wore during summer. Prague is my favourite so far!
