Small Nyx Haul

I've tried bits of Nyx products here and there (some of which have been favourites of mine) but recently I managed to find a Boots store with a Nyx counter, I couldn't turn down the opportunity to have a look at some of the Nyx products available and hopefully find some new favourites. Originally I only really went looking for a mascara and concealer but ended up leaving with a bit more than that as usual.

So here is what I brought:

Nyx Matte Lipsticks
I remember watching all the Youtube videos back in the early 2010's and many raved about the Nyx Matte Lipsticks so I decided to pick up a couple of colours. In recent years, I have opted more towards liquid lipsticks and lip glosses rather than returning to the good old lipstick formula! I picked up two pretty shades - Honeymoon and Sable.

Swatches of the lip liners and lipsticks

Nyx Suede Matte Lip Liners
To accompany my lipsticks and as per the sales assistant's recommendations, I chose two matte lip liners in 'Toulouse' and 'London' to compliment the lipsticks that I had picked and my oh my are they extremely pigmented and long lasting! They give me a very similar feel to the MAC lip liners - definitely an alternative if you are looking for a similar lip liner at a lower price point.

Nyx Cream Highlight and Contour Palette
I dropped my Benefit Hoola Contour Stick the other day and it was rendered useless after half the product was smeared across the floor so since then I have been on the eye out for a new contour product. I saw this palette at the counter for half price which was a great bargain in my opinion. I am a huge fan of cream contours and usually opt for them over a powder contour so this was a great buy.

Nyx Worth The Hype Mascara
The item that led to all of this! I had not tried a Nyx mascara before so I asked the sales assistant and she suggested this. I have been trying it out and find that it is great for volumising the lashes. I would say that this mascara is probably among one of the best I have tried and is a good option if your looking for something to add volume.

Nyx Micro Brow Pencil 
I've tried this before so this was a repurchase rather than a new product to try for me. I love how soft and build-able the application is. I really love to use this to fill in the many gaps that I have in my eyebrows and it is so easy to take with me and pop in my bag. Extremely lightweight and effective.

Nyx HD Photogenic Concealer Wand
Another item that I have tried before and is a repurchase. One of the things that I love to buy are concealers because I enjoy trying out different formulas and coverage. This concealer is one of my favourites as I find it to be quire lightweight and blend able as well as providing a great finish for the camera.

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed my small Nyx haul. Please let me know in the comments whether you have tried any Nyx products before and if so, what are your favourites? If you have not tried any Nyx products, are there any that you have your eye on?
