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. 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’.
NYX Matte lipstick: $16.45 (I think this was the most expensive lip product)
Retractable eye liner: $12.95
Glam Liner: $12.95
Jumbo Eye Pencil: $12.95
Everything ranged from $12 to around $24.99 (for products like primers and some of the foundations).
If you’re in Auckland I would highly recommend going and having a peep! Let me know what you think of it!
