I love shopping, especially when it comes to a selection of cosmetics. In this NYX Haul I manage to pick up these few items listed below.
If you read further you will see my review of each item in my NYX Haul.
I love using these pencils to line my lips, I also use them as lipsticks sometimes to fill in my entire lip area. I might use a primer and then add a little gloss to it. All the colors are wonderful.
- High pigmentation
- Stays on for long hours, unlike lipsticks
- Price is affordable
- 60 different shades to select from
- Glides on smoothly
- Doesn’t feel drying on the lips
- Takes a little more time to apply, unlike lipsticks/lip pencils since they are very slim
- Pencils sizes are short
- Similar shades
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil
These Jumbo eye pencils can be used as an eyeshadow base or you can simply grab one to apply while on the go. They are easy to use but might be a little difficult for some to sharpen, but once you have the right tool then everything should be fine.
NYX Jumbo eye pencils are extremely opaque and they make a good eyeshadow base that enhances the color of your eyeshadow. They have an amazing color payoff and the more frosty shades have an opaque consistency. The creamy formula works great on the crease, some even apply it to the lips. The Jumbo pencils are extremely blend-able, so if you have a low pigmented eye-shadow just add a little of this NYX Jumbo eye pencil as a base to enhance the color.
I’ve been using blotting papers for quite a while now and ever since I practically carry a pack everywhere with me. So far, so good I have only tried NYX blotting papers. The budget line has released three themed packs for $6 each (100 sheets a piece).
Each pack caters to a different skin care issue:
The Blemish Control pack’s papers contain salicylic acid which helps to prevent zits.
The Green Tea papers contain antioxidant-rich green tea powder that soothes and nurture more mature skin and the……
Tea Tree papers help to prevent blemishes with the use of tea tree oil.
They are pretty easy to use, as possible and they get the job done. Just remove one of the sheets from its packaging, and press/hold it against your face to absorb the excess oil and eliminate shine. The papers are of good size and they are delicate, like thin paper streamers. One should be enough to absorb all of the excess oil from the face, but if it’s soaked with shine, use another.
The Green Tea and Blemish Control papers are unscented, while the Tea Tree papers have a fairly strong medicinal tea tree scent.
The sheets work fine overall without disturbing the makeup, you don’t have to worry about getting touch-ups.
