I’m sure a lot of you are aware that NYX is becoming more available in the UK as now they stock with a few leading websites including boots.com, and have started opening stores and stands in boots as well, I went shopping on Saturday and got so excited when I spotted a NYX counter in boots I was literally like a kid in a candy shop, it has 2 double-sided stands and they had so much selection more than what they have online, I was really surprised, obviously it was rammed as everyone loves a bit of NYX, so I had to fight my way in. I knew a couple of bits I wanted to look at thanks to Sarah at ohitssare she was raving about the NYX pro eye brushes so I really wanted to check these out.
I have a lot of NYX products and I’m a huge lover of this brand, I just wanted to have a little browse and check out the full range and also a couple of the new shades of the popular soft matte lip creams, but the shades I wanted were empty which was a shame, it just gives me an excuse to go back.
But these were the goodies I picked up
- Strobe of genius illuminating palette £15
- Green colour correcting primer £11
- Mosaic blush powders £8
- HD eyeshadow primer £5.50
- Pro smudge brush 15 £8.50
- Pro blending brush 16 £8.50
- Pro crease brush 17 £8.50
Top truth Bottom Peachy
To be honest I didn’t need these, I have so many blushes but I just really liked the Idea of these and the shades were my type of colours.
Strobe of Genius palette
Bottom 3 (which are my favourite)
You Probably all know by now how much I love my highlighters, and I had seen this around on Instagram etc so I had to pick this up, it has some really nice shades in and also good for mixing shades together.
Pro Eye brushes
L-R 15 smudge, 16 blending, 17 crease
I used the crease brush this morning and I’m obsessed with it already, I have a few eye brushes but haven’t got an actual favourite but I think that’s about to change, I bet I will end up getting a back up of this. For £8.50 I think these brushes are really good quality.
HD eyeshadow primer
I really wanted to pick up an eyeshadow primer as can you believe it I don’t actually own any, it’s crazy right? and I wear eyeshadow everyday! I normally just apply loose setting powder before I apply my eyeshadows but I wanted to actually try one and see if they make a difference.
Colour correcting primer
I suffer with some redness and spot scaring so I really wanted to give this a try as I already use green concealers. Colour correcting is very popular at the moment with every brand bringing out primers, concealers and also palettes but this is as far as I would go I don’t really need any others luckily.
So that was all I picked up but I’m sure I will be visiting boots a lot more now and I’m so happy it’s easier to purchase NYX in the UK.
