NYX is a brand I’ve been mentioning on my blog more and more frequently as I’ve been trying out and loving more and more of their products. Obviously my best friend knows this as well, which is why she was so kind to get me two more of their wonderful products for Christmas, one being a palette and one being a lip pencil.
She gave them two me right before we took off for London or actually more like while we were on our way to London, so I’ve had some time to try them out while I was there.
First let’s talk about this pretty little palette. It’s the Love in Florence palette in the shade 05 Sunsets with Sophia (how very fitting). You get five lovely shades with this stunner and I think each shade is equally gorgeous and they all really compliment each other. It’s nice that you get some more nude and bronzed shades for a more neutral look but it also includes a sparkling black if you want to go for something a bit more dramatic! While in London I’ve been using this for a very neutral but still shimmery eye look and it’s lasted pretty well throughout the day.
The other item she got me is this Jumbo Lip Pencil in the shade 708 Iced Mocha. I have to admit when I first unwrapped this I thought it was an eye pencil due to the color and because they look exactly the same except for the fact that they come in a white packaging. However, this is a lip pencil even though this isn’t a shade I would chose for my lips, to be honest. The texture is incredibly similar to their eye pencils, so basically you can use them for your lips but you can use them just as well for your eyes. I did try this on my lips and once blended it actually looks really cool but it’s definitely a shade I would prefer using in summer as it gives this bronzed glow once applied.
Just like every other NYX product I’ve tried so far I love these and I have yet to find a product by them that I dislike.
What do you think of NYX as a brand? Any products you would recommend? Anything you’re not so keen on?
Thank for reading!
