Bottom to Top: Full Throttle lipstick in 03, Soft Matte Lip Cream In Abu Dhabi, Butter Gloss in Tiramisu
Words can’t describe how excited I am that boots now have NYX. I knew you could get them on the boots website although now in my local boots they have a counter. I literally ran over to the counter like a kid runs for there presents on christmas morning. I tried to stay calm and not go to wild so I limited my self to 4 products, 3 being lip products. In my defence, NYX’s lips products are the most raved about lip products in the beauty industry so I wanted to give them ago…They definitely lived up to expectations.
The first product is something I have heard every one and their mum talk about. It’s a butter gloss in Tiramisu. It’s smells incredible, it feels incredible and it is incredible. I put this on the other day as I didn’t want too much makeup on. I didn’t use any lipstick I just shoved this on and it looked so lovely. It’s a lovely Pinky/Nude colour which i’m all about. I normally hate lip glosses. there sticky, My hair gets stuck in it, they smudge easily, I just end up looking a mess. But this one doesn’t feel sticky at all and it feels very moisturising on the lips. I’d say it lasted around 2 hours on which is fairly good for me as I normally rub it right off as I hate the feeling of heavy lip glosses but I could hardly feel this one on. I can see why so many people love them.
Next up is something I have actually never heard of. It’s the Full throttle lipstick in 03. This lipstick is my new favourite lipstick. Hands down. It is the perfect colour. It’s a browny nude, Which if you’ve read previous posts you’ll know that is my go to shade. I’ve never tried a lipstick like this one. It goes on so sooooo creamy. It’s so pigmented I don’t need to layer it on, You need one application and you’re good to go. And then it sets. This lipstick has got some good staying power, I’ve never known a lipstick like it. It glides on effortlessly, I wasn’t expecting it to set as quickly as it did. It’s a matte formula so It last’s all day and can be quite a struggle getting it off at the end of the day but I use an oil cleanser and that does the trick. Another brilliant lip product from NYX.
One more lip product to go, It’s the classic, The one and only, Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi. Now, I know this is the third Nude toned lip product I picked up in this haul, BUT… I just couldn’t help it. I had to make the most of the new NYX counter before everything becomes out of stock, Because I just know it will. This lip cream is AMAZING. I originally picked up the liquid lip suede in 07 but ended up putting it back because I just couldn’t justify 3 matte lip products in one haul, I kinda regret it but hopefully it will be there when go back. fingers crossed. Anyway, The lip cream is incredible. I love the colour. It’s a browny/pink with a little bit of peach in there. It’s a perfect summer shade! I’ve had it on today and It lasted pretty well too, Not as long as the full throttle lip stick but that’s a given, I genuinely think that lipstick has super powers. Still, A lovely option for day time when you don’t want a heavy lipstick on!
Last is a face product. I have been suffering with redness for as long as I can remember. Especially on my nose and chin. All I have to do it touch my nose a little by accident and it will glow red like Rudolf the red nose reindeer. So I’ve been on the hunt for a good green concealer to cover it up and I ended up picking this one up called the HD concealer in shade 12. I tried this for the first time yesterday and I have to say, It’s really helping in the redness department! When I first put it on, I think I might have but a little too much on as I kinda looked like the hulk, But once i blended it all it was fine. I was a little worried it might show though my foundation and I would have green patches on my face but it didn’t. It covered up all my redness and It didn’t come through all day which is a first for me! I really want to pick up the normal concealer in this range because I love the formula of it! That ones on the list for next time. The list seems to be getting bigger and bigger.
