Ever since I heard Boots have finally stocked NYX in the UK, I've been too excited to visit and stock up on a blogger favourite brand. I did do a little research before purchasing, but I knew I didn't need anymore foundation, blushers and eyeliner so steered clear of them! I've already got my eye on a few other products now...

One product I did read a lot of good reviews on are their Soft Matte Lip Creams. Previously I've not been a fan of matte lipsticks because they've either been too drying or not lasted that long but it was love at first swatch with NYX. I picked up Istanbul which is a pretty dusky rose pink shade and gorgeous for wearing during the day or once layered up for an evening out. I wore this a few weeks ago on a night out and it didn't last that long, but I did have a few cocktails so this may be the reason why! The doe foot applicator is super easy to apply and the formula smells like sweets - what's not to love?!

Personally, I've never really seen the purpose of lip liners if you're wearing an every day pink or nude but as this was my first go at trying a matte lip I thought a lip liner would be appropriate! I couldn't find an exact match and as I have a few dark and dusky pink lipsticks in my collection already, Nude Pink seemed like the perfect fit. Now this lip liner lasts for ages! It's got some serious waterproof staying power and only when I use a wipe or micellar water and rub it off, does it eventually budge. 

Finding an eyebrow pencil which works with my ginger/red hair, is pretty hard. Usually I'll just go with a blonde or light brown shade, but it never looks quite right with my hair colouring. When I first swatched the NYX Brow Pencil in Auburn, it did come up fairly warm and red but it does suit my hair colour - finally! These brow pencils are so quick and easy to use, plus I love the spooley on the other end to brush through my brows and make them slightly less crazy than normal...

Have you picked up anything from NYX yet? What's your favourite NYX product?

Thanks for reading!
