NYX Haul

I got all these items from For NYX products, I usually either order from there or Both sites have NYX products for a lot cheaper than retail price. I got all of these products for around $50. So if you are looking to try some NYX products, definitely check out one of those websites. 

NYX Cream Blush in Golden and Glow-
These were the first cream blushes I've ever owned. I've heard that they are comparable to the MAC Creamblend Blushes, but for a fraction of the price. I'm having some trouble figuring out how exactly to apply them, but I love the colors I got. Golden is a natural peachy beige and Glow is a nice medium pink.

NYX Megashine Lipgloss in Sugar Pie- This is a light pinky nude. I really like these glosses and I tend to be really picky when it comes to lipgloss because I hate sticky ones that sink into the fine lines of your lips. These are perfect.
NYX Lipliner in Nude Beige- I got this to go with MAC Honeylove lipstick which is one of my favorite nudes and they are pretty much identical in color. That combo paired with Sugar Pie over top is the perfect nude lip.
NYX Round Lipgloss in Doll Pink- I love this. It's a fuschia shade and is soo pigmented. Not sticky at all either, which I love. This would go perfect over top of MAC's Show Orchid, which is the next MAC lipstick on my wishlist :)
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Addis Ababa- These are AMAZING. They are so soft and silky, they don't dry out your lips, and the color is a beautiful dark fuschia. I'm in love with the smell too. It has a strong vanilla smell that is to die for. I plan on getting some more of these soon.
NYX Round Lipstick in Narcisuss- This is a cool, barbie pink shade. I got this color because NYX's lipstick range is HUGE and I had no idea what shade to get. I chose Narcisuss because it one that has been raved about a lot. It's such a pretty color but it does not flatter me at all. But if you're one of those girls who can pull of cool lip colors, definitely give this ago. It's definitely Nicki Minaj-esque :)

NYX Eyeshadow in Highlight- This is gorgeous. NYX shadows are super soft and pigmented. Highlight is a golden sheen that almost looks similar Nars Albatross Blush. 
NYX Super Long Eyeliner in White and Brown- These aren't super pigmented and are not soft at all, so it will take a little pressure to apply. The NYX Slide On Pencils are a better choice because they're comparable to the Urban Decay 24/7 liners. 
NXY Jumbo Pencil in Brown- Just a basic brown. Very creamy and blend-able. I plan on using this as a base for brown smokey eyes or even to amp up a neutral look.
NXY Eyebrow Pencil- I got mine in Dark Brown and it's a perfect match for my hair color. I really don't need to much filling in, I mainly just use this to define the shape.
NYX Candy Glitter Liner in Crystal- This is a multi-colored glitter liner with a white base. I got this to use on my lower lashline with neutral looks to make them stand out.
NYX Glitter Powder in Crystal and Purple- Fail swatch above (they barely show on up their own). You definitely need a good sticky base for these. The colors are beautiful but they are very gritty. Below are swatches of them over top of Urban Decay Primer Potion and used wet. I would recommend L.A. Splash Eyeshadow Sealer, eyelash glue, or Too Faced Glitter Glue underneath.

NYX Eyeliner Brush- I love this brush. It reminds me of the MAC 210, but for about a fourth of the price. Since I have hooded eyes, I have to make sure I can get my liner as close to my lashline as possible. I also do winged liner almost every day and I have such a hard time getting it perfect. This brush helps me do all of that. I definitely recommend this.
