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!
next up is a couple lip liners. i’ve really been digging lip liners recently for a few reasons. they are always insanely pigmented and they have the staying power of a sharpie! okay, maybe not as permanent as a sharpie, but you get my point.
my faves have been “stripdown” from mac and “mauve” from nyx. both perfect neutral matte shades that work great for day or night time!
now onto actual lipsticks ( finally! ) i chose “taupe” also from mac and “chocoholic” from maybelline.
fun fact #1: “taupe” was my very first mac lipstick purchase…like this tube…like i bought this a month ago. why no one ever made me purchase a mac lipstick sooner i have no idea…some friends y’all are. (JK I LOVE YOU!)
but seriously the formula is amazing and this color is even more amazing. i can’t tell you how many compliments i have received while wearing this!
fun fact #2: i just bought “chocoholic”. how is it in a favorites post already you ask? well, i’ve been looking for a good chocolate brown color for a while and when i saw this one the other day i knew it was bound to be a favorite. maybelline is hands down the best drugstore brand for lipsticks, in my opinion. so basically i’m just telling you that come fall i’ll be wearing this non-stop.
last but most certainly not least is a gloss. now typically i’m not a gloss girl, but the kylie cosmetic glosses just looked too good…so i bought one in “literally”. and let me tell you girl, i haven’t regretted a day since. these are FAB. crazy pigmented and they taste good. it’s a win win. 😉
what are your favorite lip products right now? i’d love to try out some new ones!
