NYX Haul!!
Its been a bit longer since I last wrote my blog but I have been waiting for tonight for a reason :) Today I went to ProBeauty in Manchester so I new I would have lots to share with you! it was so much fun and there was so much to see ( and buy!!). I would really recommend if you are a beauty student or just getting started as there are lots of offers on starter kits and you can speak directly with the experts for advice.
So under all the temptation I only went a bit crazy on one counter, the NYX counter. I have never tried this brand before but heard so much about it so I thought I would treat my makeup kit to some new things. so here is what I brought I have had a play with them this afternoon so I can review them to. I will not be putting the prices on as they all had a little discount on them.
The first of two palettes brought was this which I could not resist the Glitterati Glitter Cream Palette. The colour of these drew me to them instantly, I thought as it nearly Halloween these will come in handy. I really like that there are really bright neon colours and also more wearable colours. I didn't swatch them until I got home and they are definitely not creamy, they are quite crumbly so you will definitely need a stick base under them. Everyone need glitter in their lives and I cant wait to do a few crazy looks for you.
The next palette I got was this fold out palette, the item number was S101 the Makeup Artist Kit. (That's the name on box)
To the right you have 36 eye shadows some are more matte than other and the pigmentation is pretty good!! I chose this palette as I think its a really good colour scheme for everyone and even if you are just starting out. I has a good range of nudes and bights. I really like the reddish browns and autumn colours which I will definitely get my use out of.
I would have brought this palette just for the eye shadow however this was an added bonus. On the bottom tray you get 5 lip colours all quite nude with a little shimmer, 2 bronzers one light and one darker, one light pink blusher and another more rose blusher, and finally 3 highlight and contour colours. these 3 highlight and contour colours im not too happy on the colours however im sure they will come in handy.
Overall im really happy with this palette, it is a little bulky but im sure you could depot them all into one palette. I like that all I need it together in one place and the eye shadows are all colours I will definitely use, my next few looks I will blog about will be using this palette. 
Next I picked up a couple of blushers, you cant have enough pink blush, well I cant anyway and I liked these as they are matte. In the picture the top one is Bourgoeis Pig and the bottom is Peach. I also got the Studio Perfect Photo-Loving Primer. I got the green coloured one for anti redness. I have not tried this on my red areas but I tried it on my hand and it felt so nice and silky.
And the list goes on.. next u got a couple of the famous Jumbo eye pencils ive heard a lot about these so could not resist.

I got the famous  Milk which is the white at the top and also Strawberry Milk. I thought this would look really nice on it own and ive heard the white is amazing as a base for eye shadow. The consistency of these are really nice and they are super bendable.
We are near the end of the list don't worry... now onto lips! im lacking lip pencils in my kit so I picked out a nude, pink and some wintery tones as these will be more popular this season.
I really like the pigmentation of these and the feel of them. The top 2 from the left are Plum and Pale Pink. On the bottom from the left is Prune, Purple Rain and Dolly Pink. I will definitely be getting more of these :)
Second to last are lipsticks I got 3 pink shades, must be into pink at the moment :)

On the left is a more glossy lipstick I don't no the actual name but the colour is Pink Lyric, the other 2 are the matte lipstick and they are in Summer Breeze and Shocking Pink. Im not sure how long lasting they are but I really like the colour payoff and the consistency, they are comfortable to wear.

We are finally at the end of the list, I had to get lip gloss of course. I brought a matte lip cream (centre) and two glosses.
So to the left if the matte lip cream in Milan, it truly is very matte and this nude colour would go with anyone. next is the Mega Shine Gloss in African Queen Love this purple its super vibrant and glossy its probably my favourite purchase of the day. Finally last is the Megga Shine Gloss in LA LA. Really like these lip glosses and I don't find they are too sticky.
Finally there you go, hope you liked my post I enjoyed reviewing these products and I actually really like this brand! Cant wait to put them into use!!
