Oh my lord I cannot even explain how excited I was when I walked into the Boots in Manchester arndale to see a NYX counter staring right back at me. Today I thought I would go through the products that I have tried so far and do little mini reviews for each of them. I will be putting up individual more in depth reviews of each of these product over the next couple of months so if you'd like to know more about anything let me know in the comments.
Soft matte lip cream - Antwerp
I'm going to be honest I am really not a fan of these, I expected to really love these as so many people say however I just find that it really weirdly flaked off my lips and it never set down like I expect a matte liquid lipstick to do.
Liquid suede lipstick - Soft spoken
This is what I expected the Soft matte lip creams to be. This sets down to a really matte finish but it still feels comfortable on the lips. I also really love the shade of this it's a beautiful dark nude shade.
Butter glosses - Crème Brule and Tiramisu
I am so impressed with these. I usually really hate glosses however these are so comfortable on the lips and are in no way sticky at all. Crème Brule is a really pretty light pink shade and Tiramisu is a darker more nude pink shade.

Eyebrow Gel - Brunette
This is quite a stiff brow gel and it gives the brow a super sleek pretty heavy kind of look however if I am really careful I can make it a little more light and natural. One thing I will say is that this is quite a red toned shade and the shade selection is quite limited.
Gotcha covered concealer - Ivory
I really don't like this, it is incredibly dry and hard to buff in. I think if you had very oily skin it might work really well but with my dry skin it looks incredibly cakey and it feels very uncomfortable to wear. It is such a shame though as this shade is absolutely perfect for under my eyes to highlight.
High definition blush - Taupe
This is the best grey toned contour that I've tried in a while, I still really love my Barry M contour kit but I am a big fan of this to. It is a really nice finely milled powder and it's perfect for paler skinned girls as it is very grey toned.
Single eyeshadow - LOL
Can we first just take a minute to appreciate how epic the colour of this shadow is. The pigment is really strong and the shadow feels very soft and I've found myself reaching for it a lot when I'm wearing an orangey smokey eye.
So that's it for todays post, I really hope you enjoyed this and I would love for you to leave you NYX recommendations below.
