Mini NYX Haul

Hey beaut's!

NYX is a makeup brand I've wanted to try for a good few years now, however being in the UK it was always hard to get hold of until recently when Boots and Feel Unique launched NYX on their websites, amazing as that is I'm still sceptical about buying makeup online because the shades are always totally different to how they appear online, I much prefer to look and swatch things in store however..... all my NYX dreams came true last Sunday when me and my boyfriend went to Norwich and as I approached Boots I saw a huge NYX sign outside the store, did this mean they had an actual NYX stand??? Yes they blooming well did, and I actually squealed with excitement! I decided to pick a couple of things up to try so I thought  would share what I bought with you all today! 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Milan £5.50
The first thing I gravitated towards was the lip products, I had heard so much about the NYX Soft Matt Lip Creams so I just had to go for one, I opted for the shade Milan - a beautiful pink shade, I was hoping this would be more of a dusky pink but I'd say it's one or two shades brighter than a dusky pink but it's still a gorgeous colour that will work well through Spring/Summer. Formula wise, so far I'm in love with it, it goes so really creamy but dries down to a comfortable matte finish that lasts hours, I'm so impressed with this little beauty!

NYX Wonder Stick in Light/Medium £10.00
The next product I had heard good things about was the NYX Wonder Stick, this is double ended so on one end you get a highlighting stick and on the other end is a contour stick both of which have an amazing creamy formula! I've given this a whirl already and my first impressions are that this is in fact a WONDER stick, it's incredible and I've never found contouring so easy! The formula just blends out beautifully in seconds and looks so natural and flawless, I absolutely love this product and would say it's my favourite thing I've bought from NYX so far!

NYX HD Studio Finishing Powder in Translucent £8.00
I then decided to pick up the HD Studio Finishing Powder as I've been wanted to buy it online for ages but it's constantly out of stock online so when I saw it in store it went straight into my basket! NYX actually claim that this is a miracle in a jar which sounds good to me he he! So far I've only used this once to set my concealer under my eyes and it worked a treat, it feels like silk on the skin too, I cant wait to to play around with this more!

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cashmere £5.00
Lastly I decided to go for one of the Jumbo Eye Pencils as I always see the shade Milk used in tutorials as a base and its really raved about so I opted for a gorgeous light gold shade called Cashmere, I thought this would be a shade I would use all the time around my entire eye area and it's so quick and easy to use, it's totally fool proof  which is what I'm all about he he! 
NYX Baked Eyeshadow Tester - Free Sample
As id bought more than three NYX products I got the choice to pick up a free sample of an NYX Baked Eyeshadow, I have no idea what shade I picked up because their isn't a shade name on the back of the packaging but it's a pretty gold shade that works really well on top on the Jumbo Pencil I bought, so thank you for that Boots he he!

What are your favourite NYX products beaut's? What should I buy next time? I'd love to know!
