in this little haul, i have a couple of repurchases that are tried and true (and probably on my holy grail list), a couple recommended products and a couple random things that were bought via the target effect.
i realized when i was putting this haul together that almost everything was NYX, so i thought that i could make this post even more specific and just tell you about some new NYX products i bought.
powder brush (02) – i was in the market for a new setting powder brush, and i’m usually not too picky. as long as it seems well made and it’s super soft, it’s fine with me. well let me tell ya, this is the softest brush EVER. i just wanna sit there and run i across my cheek all day, but that would be weird so i’ll try to refrain.
duo chromatic illuminating powder – this product was a total impulse purchase. my sister snapchatted me about these a few weeks ago, and i’m pretty sure i went to ulta the same day and bought one. this one has a pink duo chrome, which i love because it’s a little bit more natural. meanwhile, my 15 year old sister is a badass, wears the purple one and KILLS IT.
matte bronzer (deep tan) – pretty much just waiting for my lorac tantilizer bronzer to either run out completely or shatter in thousands of unusable little pieces so i can open this. i love a good matte bronzer, so i have high hopes for this bad boy.
micro brow pencil (taupe) – a forever repurchase. it’s made the holy grail product list and i it will never be replaced.
dear nyx, please don’t discontinue this product. xoxo, em
lip liner pencil (mauve) – another repurchase. my current one is down to a lil nub so i thought it was time to replace it. this is a great natural “your lips but better ” color. i used to wear this almost everyday and i’m not sure why i stopped. i’m definitely happy i “rediscovered ” this color!!
do you have any nyx products that you’d recommend? let me know!
for every day: Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede
out of all twenty-six fragrances that jo malone offers, this has got to be my number one. i mean, it’s reached holy grail status, y’all. jo malone describes it as “flirtacious” with notes of juicy red apple, jasmine and rose, which i’ve noticed are common in a lot of my favorite scents. i’m a creature of habit i guess.
for spring time: Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue
imagine it’s the most perfect spring day. like april 25th, because it’s not too hot and not too cold…all you need is a light jacket. 😉 this is the scent for that day. it’s the perfect combination of fruity and floral with notes of sicilian cedar, apple, white rose, and solid base notes of amber and citron wood.
for date night: Marc Jacobs Decadence
i feel like this is a fragrance you’ll either love or hate…but i hope you’ll love. it’s definitely a deeper, woodier scent perfect for a date night with your man. it has top notes of italian plum, iris and saffron, and after it settles into your skin the base notes of amber and papyrus woods really come out.
decadence is one of my favorite perfumes, so i use it sparingly. but maybe i’m biased because it was my first purchase from bergdorf’s. 😉
for summer: Elizabeth + James Nirvana White
i had such a hard time deciding whether to buy the nirvana white or black. they are both amazing! props to you mary kate & ashley.
surprise, surprise it’s another floral scent. peony, muguet and musk are the key notes in this scent, which make it perfect for sweet summer days.
