NYX is always a brand I always hear being mentioned on makeup tutorials, hauls and social media. It is a brand I’ve wanted to try for years.

So when I heard it was coming to the UK I was over the moon!img_2317

The first product i bought from NYX  was the intense butter gloss- Toasted Marshmallow.The main reason I picked this product was the colour . I am the sort of person who can only get away with wearing nudes or a deep colour such dark browns or a deep plum/red. I hadn’t read up on the intense butter gloss range at all or had seen it advertised so it was just at a win after I had bought it I feel in love. The product is creamy, great pigment and has a lovely subtle shine to it. It doesn’t dry out your lips the buttery soft feel makes your lips feel soft and moisturised.

This is another deep plum/ brown colour, A lot darker than the first colour i bought.I found the pigment in this was amazing a full coverage matte finish although it does take awhile to go matte it’s not instant.

A few days after buying this liquid swede lip colour I had noticed a picture on social media of a dip dye effect using two other colours(- sway and amethyst) in that range so I just had to go and get them to recreate what id’ seen! (The colours in this range are so fun.) Although I have never used either of those colours since. But they kept up the standard of the liquid swede range.

Last but not least the extra creamy round stick, I bought two of these -snow white and chaos.

I love the way it feels when it’s applied it is super creamy, it just glides on with an gorgeous appearance on the lip. Chaos is more of a pink/red colour. I have to say this colour looked a lot different in the shop to what it did at home as I wouldn’t of bought it. It is a beautiful colour although I don’t think i’ll be able to pull it off. However Snow white is a deeper red. I wore this colour the other day, i was unsure on how long it would last especially as I was going out for lunch, to say the least it lasted surprisingly well as i had a cheese burger! I was very impressed.

Eyeliner – Just wing it!

Eyeliner, one of the most important steps in your makeup look! Eyeliner is one of the hardest application to get to grips with and it can either make or break your look – For example if the liner looks different on each eye or if you’re going for a natural makeup look but go to heavy on the liner or the lines are not straight  – like they say eyeliner can sense your fear!

When it comes to eyeliner everyone has there own preference I Personally prefer the gel liner. Why? I find it’s easier to apply, it’s a better coverage and it’s easier to correct with the right brush.

Growing up I tried pencil liner, liquid liner but then I discovered Maybelline gel liner and found it so much easier to apply and that I didn’t look completely ridiculous. 

If you’re starting out in the world of eyeliner I would recommend Maybelline gel eyeliner, apply with a small angled brush this i found made my application easier and better.

                                                     High Definition duo gel liner

                                                       Zoeva 317 wing liner brush

If you’re ready to take that extra step i’d highly recommend the high definition duo gel liner it has a mixture of black liner and brown liner. Brown eyeliner is great if you just want a subtle day to day look or if you like to be more adventurous and want to make your eyes pop the black is great especially alongside a smokey eye. The perfect companion to use alongside the high definition duo gel liner is the high definition angled brow brush for the application, they work brilliantly together. But if you can get your hands on a zoeva 317 wing liner brush buy it! Its one of my favourites to use.
