Having social media isn’t always a great thing for your bank account is it? I’m always scrolling through it and finding people boasting about products and clothes. If I see something that I like, I instantly feel like I need it otherwise I won’t be able to live. Ok, it’s not that bad but my mind is telling me I NEED IT I NEED IT I NEED IT. So the next minute, I’m £30 down and I’ve brought it..
NYX you can purchase online on their website and quite a few others, or you can purchase it in your local Boots store. However if you live in a shit town like me, no Boots around actually sell it. I have 4 Boots stores that’s within 10 miles away from my house – yet none of them fricking sell it. So the only thing I could suggest was purchasing it online. I went onto the Boots website, but I couldn’t find this eye palette I wanted. So I got it from the NYX website and it told me if I spend up to £30 – the shipping would be free. So my brain instantly thinks that’s a fabulous idea let’s see how much I can get for £30. Here’s what I got..
ULTIMATE SHADOW PALETTE
Ok I saw this over on SGX Instagram. (I’ve linked her <–). Stacey uploaded a photo and I instantly commented saying that I needed this palette. So I blame Stacey everyone. This palette is gorgeous, it’s all warm tones and I’m all for the warmer shades. They are so highly pigmented and blend so well. However, I will be doing a review on this product and swatches will be featured too.
EYEBROW POWDER PENCIL
I didn’t take note that it said Powder. I’d class the pencil as creamy. I have used this once or twice, and I can’t say I am a huge fan. It’s not a brow product I’d use alone, I would use it with another product as it doesn’t give that finished look to me. I couldn’t give my brows the perfect shape that I usually do using The Body Shop Brow & Liner kit. It said in the description that it gives your brows, the matte finish. I didn’t see that personally. I like how it has the brush on the other end, which is really handy.
This is something a little different to your usual eye shadow palette or single. My first thought was ‘how shiny does this look’, and also how well this shade would go with the palette shades. You can pick this up in 24 different shades! It’s like a sparkle but also metallic. My total go to shade, I love it. Like a coppery, orange shade.
THE SKINNY MASCARA
This is the skinniest mascara I’ve ever laid my eyes on. When I purchased this, I went by the reviews on the website. I didn’t actually realise it was this skinny, if I did – I probably wouldn’t have purchased it. I wanted a mascara to add up the money to £30 and I wanted to do an ‘eye look’ only using NYX products. Even though the brush is super SUPER skinny, it’s perfect for reaching all them lashes in the corner. It also makes it so much easier to get to your bottom lashes without dapping your skin with the end of the brush every 2 seconds.
