NYX Haul

We don't get NYX in Aberdeen. It's a travesty and an abomination.
I had heard such great things about their lip products from my sister so I was super bummed to find that the only way I was going to get my hands on some goodies was if: 1. My she bought some in Glasgow and brought it back up or 2. Order their products on line.

Call me impatient but when I want something I want it there and then. Gosh, I sound like Verruca Salt! So none of those options seemed exciting to me. Also, i'm rather old fashioned when it comes to some things. I love to feel and see products before deciding to buy them or not.

Recently on a trip to Dundee I was so excited to find out that they stocked NYX in their Boots store!
Judging by the amount of people crowding around the stand it's safe to say that this brand is realllly popular. It was hard to not nudge people out of the way to get to the pretty lipsticks.

I came away with 6 products, but honestly I could have bought way more. The variety of colours they have is incredible. Definitely something for every skin tone. With the creams and lipsticks ranging from £5-£6 you are getting a luxury style product for drug store prices.

I had already purchased the lip cream in the colour Istanbul so just had to pick up a couple more.

Full Throttle Lipstick in Lethal Kiss. LOVE this bright colour, but not 100% sure if I can pull it off yet. Maybe with a tan!? 

Lip Primer in Deep Nude.

So pretty. The colours are so pigmented, and I really adore the lip primer. Way better than other primers i've bought from more...ahem...expensive brands. It doesn't overwhelm your lips like a gloss but it creates a perfect base for matte products. As we all know there is a constant struggle with keeping the lips from drying out when wearing matte products. 

I can't wait to play around with my new goodies. Particularly the brighter colours.

Do you have a favourite NYX product that you want to shout about?
What colours are you wearing on your lips this Spring?
