NYX Haul – Purchased from Farmers Queen Street

NYX Farmers Queen Street

With NYX hitting the shelves at the new Farmers Queen Street, nothing could hold me back from a NYX Haul. I really love NYX but because of the availability issue here in NZ I haven’t bought anything from the brand for quite awhile. We could say that I was well overdue for a bit of an NYX haul, so let’s have a look at what I got! If you want to know more about NYX coming in NZ click here for all the details. And if you are interested in what the pricing is like, scroll down to the bottom of the post to see what it all came to.

I bought a total of 4 items, including one lip product and three eye products. Firstly, I chose the NYX Matte Lipstick in ‘Natural’. It’s a really smooth, creamy consistency and has pretty decent lasting power. The shade being quite a pink based nude suits me really nicely and it’s a very ‘easy to wear’ shade.

The Glam Liner Aqua Luxe at first didn’t really catch my eye, but after a quick swatch I was in love. The shade is ‘Glam Golden’ and it’s a gold liquid liner with golden glitter through it, but not over the top disco glitter more of a nice shimmer. Although this is definitely not something I’d wear all the time, it will be great for my upcoming summer concerts and festivals. The liner is waterproof and will not come off until you attack it with makeup remover.

I’ve used a white NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil for years and years now, so it was time to branch out and try a different shade. ‘Yogurt’ is a nice frosty, gentle bronze shade which is something I can wear to work as well as for other more full makeup looks. The Jumbo Eye Pencils are super easy to use, quick and last forever!

Going along with this kind of bronze theme, I picked up a Retractable Eye Liner in ‘silky cashmere’. The crayon is smooth and the shade is very pigmented with a nice bronze glow. I haven’t tried these before, but I have a feeling they may become a favourite.

Something I’d totally recommend which I didn’t buy because the one I have is still going strong is the NYX Wonder Pencil.Β It’s a concealer pencil which is useful for direct spot concealing as well as highlighting and defining your brows or lips more. I have the shade ‘light’.

    Wow that is some restraint there Laura. If you let me into the store I would have ;left with 20 things.

    • Haha I was quite proud of my restraint! But… I am saving money for Vietnam and Sephora spending!

  • <3 lovely haul..i live very near to farmers queens street…next time , when you are around…please do let me know….:) we will have a coffee tgthr…:) I hauled some nyx essentials too..I got myself the brow pen, brow kit and 3 lip liners… πŸ™‚

    • Oh you are so lucky to live so close by! My bank account would be having a massive problem if I lived too close. How are you finding the brow pen and lip liners? I’ve used one of their brow pens before and found it so hard and difficult to use.

  • Nice haul! πŸ™‚ Hope they bring NYX to Farmers around NZ, why does Auck always get everything!?

    • I hope so too! It’s been so well received I can’t see why they wouldn’t bring it to more stores.

  • I popped along on opening day! Bought one of their lippies – love the colour, not so much the texture/staying power (and the smell was a little funny). But for the price, not bad!

    • Was it super busy on opening day? I’ve found my matte lipstick has okay staying power, not amazing, but as you say for the price and shade it’s worth it!

  • Those Glam Liners and Eye Pencils look amazing! So awesome, that they are now available in store! Fingers crossed they bring NYX to Dunedin eventually too. I’m still waiting on Essence to be stocked here haha! x

    • I’m crossing my fingers for you! That is so unfair that Essence hasn’t come to your store yet! Do you have Bourjois at your local Farmers?

      • Nope no Bourjois either πŸ™ Hopefully we get them here soon too (or the option to buy online!). Maybe I just need to move to Auckland haha πŸ™‚
