Beauty: A huge Nyx cosmetics haul!

11 Jun 2016

It's come to my attention that I never really feature makeup on heartshapedbones whereas I do on my Youtube channel weekly (I am so bad at balancing content) so I thought I would make more of an effort to share what products I've been loving, little hauls, etc. So Nyx cosmetics has finally come to York and everyone has been running to the boots in town to pick up a number of products. The new counter is all I have heard for weeks, so I was dying to check it out myself. 

Luckily for Nyx recently I've started to run out of my must haves such as eyeliner, concealer, etc, so when I was browsing the counter I literally picked up a bit of everything. 

NYX Dream Catcher Eyeshadow Palette - Golden Horizon £13 | From just reading the review on this palette I found out it has a hidden mirror compartment!!!! Aside from that I definitely bought this on a whim, I rounded the side of the counter and found the number of Dream catcher range palettes that Nyx had to offer. The shades in each were all very similar, most being shimmery and perfect for summer. I'm really in to matte so I went for the golden horizon, one: because it has the most matte browns and two: it has a copper shade that is to die for.

NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil £5 | Online you can purchase this product in so many shades but in store there is about three options, instead of going for black (I don't know why I did this) I opted for a dark brown, but despite the shade being a little too light this is the best eye brown pencil I have tried for ages. One end is the pencil and the other is a brush to style those puppies. 

NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil - Shade Pecan £5 | What I love about these bigger lip pencils is how buttery they are and how beautiful they smell! These particular pencils smell like actual candy. I went for Pecan because of the hint of purple the rose colour has, a little remembrance of the shades I would gravitate towards when I had pink hair.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams - Shade Cannes £5.50 | Another lip product that smells so much like candy, the matte lip creams were probably the whole point of me popping into Boots. I went with the shade Cannes because it almost reminds me of the Kylie Jenner lip products with the brown tint! When trying new products out I always go for a rose pink which works with the skin tone I have (I hope).

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - Shade Abu Dhabi £5.50 | Once I had picked up the Cannes shade I found Abu Dhabi, a neutral brown that in packaging looks very similar but on is far from rose tones! I found the matte creams go on so smoothly and don't feel chalky at all when drying. 

NYX Slide On, Glide On Lip Liner - Shade Nude Suede £5.50 | I used this product for the first time today and my god, just on it's own this product is great. The liner is water proof and doesn't budge the second it's on! I went for a neutral shade with the mind frame of wearing it underneath Cannes, but once using it on it's own I think it has the coverage to just be worn like a lipstick!

(Yes I bought alot of lip products)

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick Rogue - Shade Kitten Heels £6.50 | Kitten Heels is literally the perfect deep red that it deserves to be framed in a vault. I've worn it a number of occasions both casual and to go out, it staying on so well even in hot weather we've had lately. When picking it up I assumed this product was a matte finish but it's apart of the liquid suede range so it's still wet, but has great staining power that even after eating it didn't budge!

NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil - Shade Plush Red £5 | These lip pencils are incredibly butter so with a red shade the second it moves, you can see it a mile off. I love this shade, Plush red has an orange tone to it that is perfect for a casual look. I think the pencils look better on their own then under a lipstick because they aren't matte, their creamy quality wears well by itself. 

NYX HD Concealer Wand - Shade Porcelain £5.50 | I'm always trying out new concealers and I'm praising the heavens that I found this HD Concealer because it hides everything. It was hard to pick the shade for me because I tan so easily in the summer, but I went for Porcelain which is so light it almost acts like a highlighter for me. Quality wise the product is such good coverage and for only £5.50 you can't go wrong even if you're just testing whether it works with your skin. 

NYX Dark Circle Concealer - Shade Light £6.50 | I'm a little disappointed with this product but I think that's either because I'm not using it correctly yet or it's too light for my skin to do anything. When looking at the shades I didn't know whether to go with what my skin was already at or to get a medium because I wanted a darker shade? I didn't really get it, but I'm not going to let this product go until I figure out if it works for me or not. 

NYX Propel My Eyes Mascara Jet Black £9 | I am quite terrible when it comes to mascaras, I never buy them and always have the same one for ages. I decided to step the boat out a little and purchase a more expensive one, opting for this jet black propel mascara to make my eyelashes really stand out. I have thick lashes anyway but I think if you have tiny ones this product would still be amazing!

NYX Felt Tip Liner Jet Black | I cannot find this product anywhere on the boots website but so far it's really good! I wear eyeliner everyday so I need one that is incredibly black and retains it's liquid. It was around the same price as the mascara!

NYX Highlighter and Contour Pro Palette £18 | Now to share with you my favourite product of the bunch and the first thing I grabbed when I got the counter, this amazing highlighter and contour palette!!! I contour every day but I have never used a contour palette with more than two options, so it was fun to play around with each shade. The highlighter is amazing and blends so well, all the shades being powder so I've found they go on easily once you've applied that layer of powder foundation. So far I've only used two of the darker shades for contouring but there is four to choose from?! FOUR?! You literally have every skin tone in one palette. 

I definitely bought more than my bank balance could handle but I can cry about that later when I'm star fishing in all my new makeup! I kid. I hope you liked this haul and seeing my favourite pieces which might aswell be every product I bought.
