Last months payday saw me treating myself to some new cosmetics, and since NYX allow free delivery on orders over £30, I couldn’t help but splurge on some products!
I treated myself to:
– an eyelash curler (£5.50)
– worth the hype volumising & lengthening mascara (£9.00)
– jumbo eye pencil in Black Bean & Rust (£5.50 each)
– pin up pout lipstick in the shade Lucy (£3.50)
– lip of the day liquid lip liner in the shade Heatwave (£3.25)
First, let’s discuss the mascara. I think this product is great, especially for me with my short eyelashes. This mascara creates volume and length, just like it says in the title. And once paired with the eyelash curler, the end result is an actual dream come true.
The eyeshadow sticks/jumbo pencils are fantastic too. I am terrible at applying make up so if even I can apply eyeshadow, then the product is wonderful! The black bean comes out really harsh, so if you prefer the dramatic look then this is the product for you. The rust comes out in a rose gold colour, and I tend to use this eyeshadow stick for a more day to day style.
I really enjoy the brightness of the pin up pout lipstick, and the colour matches the title perfectly. I feel like Marilyn Monroe whenever I wear it.
However, I didn’t get on with the liquid lip liner. It had a strange taste to it, and the brush is almost too flimsy to use. Make up artists with more skills than I can probably wield the wand, however I struggled, so it isn’t a product I’ll be using again.
I think NYX is my favourite male up brand. I could easily spend every penny I earn there, so I should say ‘tune in next time’ because no doubt there’ll be another NYX cosmetic review after pay day this month.
