NYX Cosmetics Makeup Haul - Dec 2013

NYX Cosmetics Makeup Haul

 Hey girlies

I recently placed an order with NYX Cosmetics, how I did not know they had a UK website sooner is beyond me!  I ordered some gifts for a work colleague who was sadly leaving us, but made the most of the free postage and purchased some items for myself too!

I am going to rate the three NYX items I got out of 1 to 5 (5 being the bestest).

High Definition Eyeshadow Base - 5/5

I have an all over face primer that I use and am happy with but I wanted a specific eyeshadow primer so when I saw this one on the website I thought I would give it a go.  It cost £7.00 and looks like a foundation kind of colour on the stick.  It is UH-MAZING!!!  Not only does it help my eyeshadow colours go onto my eyelid in a much stronger high definition colour, but it also did exactly what it said on the tin; kept my eyeshadow on crease free for an entire evening at my work Christmas party.

NB: They also sell a powder eyeshadow base for £6.00 which comes in three shades.  I have personally not tried this product myself but after seeing mixed reviews on Amazon for this product, I am very pleased I spent the extra £1.00 and went for the product I did.

Liquid Illuminator in shade Sunbeam - 4/5

I found out about this product when I was searching for dupes of the Benefit High Beam and there were lots of videos on YouTube claiming it was the perfect dupe so I ordered this as well.  I am very impressed with the quality and sparkle of this product and shall certainly be placing another order if/when I run out.  You get a huge amount of product for the bargain price of only £7.00!! I think Benefit High Beam would cost something crazy like 3 times the price of that.

NXY Black Label Lipstick in shade Nude - 4/5

This is the perfect nude lipstick for me.  I prefer to wear nude lipsticks as I have blonde hair and blue eyes and I seem to find wearing nude lips make my eyes pop more as I like my eyes to be my feature when I do my makeup. This is just perfecto! It glides on soooo smoothly and leaves your lips feeling very soft.  Only downside to this and the only reason it is not 5/5 is that it doesnt last very long and I found myself re-applying quite frequently.

NB: I could not find this lipstick available on the UK website so I had to order this from a different online location.  I am certainly going to order a couple more to keep my stocks up in case they decide to stop making this product! LOVE IT!

What are your experiences with NYX? What are your favourite products?  I would love to hear from you.
