NYX Haul & First Impressions

NYX Haul

NYX Haul

Now that NYX is finally stocked in Boots I couldn’t resist heading down to my new local counter and going a little NYX crazy before it all goes out of stock! I had a few products in mind to pick up and I knew they wouldn’t stick around on the shelves for long. It’s so reasonably priced for the quality which is why I guess it’s so popular! Most of the hype surrounds their lip products so I had to give a few a go.

Soft Matte Lip Cream in ‘Stockholm’ – This is the perfect nude, peach toned matte lipstick that I have come across. The formula is so soft but super matte and barely budges once applied. I can even drink a coffee without this transferring onto the cup, it’s that good! I can totally tell why this one has been sold out for ages!

Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in ‘Ruffle Trim’ – This one is slightly more brown toned and bolder than Stockholm but a similar shade none the less. It’s more pigmented and dries down quicker but still feels equally as weightless.

Butter Gloss in ‘Tiramisu’ – These are perfect for applying on the go for a minimal lip look or if you want a break from wearing a matte. They are really sheer with only a slight tint which I find perfect for layering over other lip products or just for wearing alone.

Lip Liner in ‘Nude Pink’ – This one reminds me of a pinker version of MAC’s Soar lip liner. It does have tiny specs of glitter in but that doesn’t transfer too much on to the lips and dries un-noticable. This is a beautiful evening shade and it applies so easily.

Slide On Lip Liner in ‘Nude Suede Shoes’ – My favourite shade of this NYX haul is this nude, brown lip liner. The formula is so creamy and soft it’s a dream to apply. I think I’ll get a lot of wear out of this shade all year round and it’s the exact shade I’ve been after. It’s similar to Boldly Bare from MAC with a slight hint of Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk so I will probably keep repurchasing this one for half the price!

NYX Haul

Single Eyeshadow in ‘Happy Hour’ – A lovely matte, true brown that’s sort of like a bronzer shade but in eyeshadow form. I bought this one for when I’m travelling and just want an easy all over the lid shade. It’s also the perfect crease shade for a brown smokey eye. For £3.50 I can’t get enough!

Above & Beyond Concealer – A creamy concealer with extreme coverage (although after a couple of uses I don’t find it to be that extreme!) that’t perfect for neatening up lip liner, brows and eyeshadow! It’s great as an eyeshadow base too.

HD Concealer – I’ve mentioned this concealer a couple of times before so I repurchased one whilst I had the chance. It’s a great all round concealer with medium to high coverage. I picked up one shade lighter than my foundation and use it as a cream highlight to brighten dull areas.

Brow Pencil in ‘Taupe’ – I’m really impressed with this pencil it’s almost an exact dupe for MAC Fling and you need less product which I love. It’s so easy to define your brows and get a more precise outline. It also comes with a brush on the other end!

That’s everything from my NYX haul. Let me know your favourite NYX products below!

    • It’s honestly so good! I’m really impressed xx

  • I absolutely love how you photographed these products! It makes me want to buy them all. I like Nyx’s Lip Lingerie line as well!

  • I love the butter glosses (I think my favorite is called Strawberry Parfait?) and want to snag some of the Soft Creams. My favorite product from them is such a random one but it has to be the Wonder Pencil. I use it as a concealer on the go, to clean up any lipstick or eyebrow mistakes, and as an inner eyeliner. SO GOOD!

    • Oooh I’ll have to look at this it sounds amazing! Perfect for touch ups! xx

  • I love applying the butter glosses on top of matte lipsticks! I am currently obsessed with the NYX Intense Butter Gloss in “Tres Leche” so pretty and very pigmented compared to the regular butter glosses. In the UK Boots now stock the new NYX Ombre Blushers, they are stunning!

    • I’ll have a look out for this one! Oh I haven’t seen the blushers but they sound amazing! xx

  • Rebecca Fletcher

    The butter glosses are my faves! I have the shade “London” and I wear it constantly!


  • I’m going to be cliche and throw out their soft matte lip cream, their darker shade selections are to die for. I love the way you do your ‘swatches’ photo, I might try doing this, thanks for the inspiration 😉

    • I haven’t picked any darker shades up yet but I definitely will for A/W! <3 Aw thank you! xx

  • Trecee Hutchinson

    I love that HD concealer, it is one of the best drugstore concealers on the market. Personally, my favorite Nyx product is the Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick, they are non drying and so comfortable to me.



    • I agree, everything is so affordable I don’t mind having to repurchase it! xx

  • Yiotou_La

    I love the NYX Soft matte lip creams. I have two of them and I believe they are the only lip products I have been wearing since the day I bought them. Will definitely buy more!

    • I just love how well they last! They hardly transfer either xx

  • jodie.keith

    I have something to admit… I don’t own a single NYX product! I’m such a bad beauty blogger, I know!! This post has really made me want to try the lip creams though.

    Jodie @ Jodetopia x

    • I didn’t before a month or two ago but now I’m obsessed! Best drugstore brand I’ve come across xx

  • You picked up soooo many amazing bits, I need to add most of these to my collection haha. I love the sound of the HD concealer, must pick that up next time I’m near a counter! I’d also recommend picking up their blush in Taupe, its perfect for contouring!

    • Luckily I had some boots points to use up but everything is so cheap anyway! Ooh this sounds like a dupe for MAC’s Harmony! xx

  • The Sunday Mode

    Stockholm sounds amazing but the butter glosses sound really interesting as well. Are they super glossy or…? I feel like that may be a stupid question but I know they’re not matte like the soft matte lip creams, I just hope they’re not super shiny.


    • They are quite glossy but more of a thicker consistency rather than a super shiny sticky one! If that helps? haha xx

  • The soft matte lip creams are awesome – I have them in 5 or 6 shades. I have to try the concealer and brow pencil next – thanks!

  • Nina

    NYX has some great products! My favorite is the Butter Gloss in the shade, “Fortune Cookie”, it’s like a mix between Kylie Jenner’s “Exposed” and “So Cute” glosses!


    • I see this one all the time! Will have to have to swatch it soon! xx

  • I have always wanted to try out the soft matte lip creams, i love matte products whether that be on the eyes or the lips x


    • They’re soo good! I’ve worn them every day since xx

  • Their Soft Matte lip creams are one my favourite liquid lipstick formulas! I am currently on the hunt for their Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks as well.
    I believe NYX has really lovely products. So far I’ve been happy with everything I’ve got.
    Take care*

    • I haven’t found a better matte I don’t think! I just love how well they last xx

  • I really need to try more things from nyx. I have a lip gloss and a blush which I love but everything else looks amazing too x


  • nyx has to be one of my favourite brands out there when it comes to affordable make up. i love the lip lingeries and the brow pomade.


    • I’m so happy it’s finally stocked in Boots! xx

  • I really want Stockholm and Ruffle Trim, I’ve never found them in stock yet! I got one of the HD concealers in the green tone and it’s so good! xx
