Last Haul of 2017 + Sneak Peek of 2017 Nyx Products10:48:00 PM
I just feel like I was long overdue for some new makeup...On my last day in Mexico, Ulta.com decides they want to have a Merry Monday One day sale which featured tons of products that I have been wanting to try up to 50 percent off.
Y'all I was so pressed to get back to the States to place an order, that I stopped in the middle of the airport as soon as I landed and checked out my cart. I got quite a lot of things that I had been waiting to try as well as a few items that I already enjoy. This haul is collective and includes a few things that I picked up throughout the whole month of December.
|Crushed Bloom, Mauve Me, Cocoa, Gold Rush|
Nyx Cosmetics Ombre Blush - Mauve MeThe Nyx Ombre Blushes are gorgeous. I picked up Mauve Me a reflective Mauve/Pink combination and have not put it down since I got it. Mauve is my favorite color to wear and I just love how gorgeous this color is and how the intensity can be built. I have a full review on the other colors I own HERE.
Nyx Cosmetics #NOFILTER Finishing Powder in CocoaI picked up this powder because I swatched it in Ulta and loved the finish. I decided to order the shade Cocoa on line which is wayyy to dark to use over the face so I used it as a contour and it has not let me down yet.
Nyx Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder in Crushed BloomThe Duochromatic Illuminating Powder is one of the 2017 releases from Nyx and is supposed to be a duo chrome highlighter! Duo chrome products have been trending all year and Nyx has finally jumped on the bandwagon. I am super excited to try this out and will probably go out and look for one more color. Since purchasing I've worn this once and really love the finish. Crushed Bloom is a pink with silver and blue shifts and is absolutely gorgeous.
Nyx HD Blush in Bitten, Deep Plum and CoralineIf you didn't know, I am a blush freak so I was excited to get these next blushes. The Nyx HD blushes have amazing reviews on almost all sites that I searched and one of my girlfriends swears by the shade Coraline so I picked that one up with a few other deeper colors to give a go!
Essence Long Lasting Lipsticks in "06 Barely There"I am so excited to try out this lipstick finally after swatching it at Ulta almost every single time I went. The Essence lipsticks are ultra creamy and have a good color payoff. Barely There is the perfect mauve nude and a perfect everyday color for me
Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil in "Black Fever" and "Hot Chocolate"This is my favorite waterline pencil, so I picked these up as back ups. The tone of "Hot Chocolate" is perfect for less intense looks especially when I skip on black, perfect deep warm brown. I like to use these in my waterline and for tight lining. The color is nice and deep and they don't budge at all.
Essence Make me Brow in "Browny Brows"I am forever on the search for the perfect brow gel and I had heard +emilynoel83 mention this one on her Youtube channel so when I saw it on the site I had to try it out. It has little fibers that build up the brow hair and help shape them so hopefully this color works out because it's only $2.99.
Nip + Fab Bee Sting Body SouffleI had seen Nip + Fab products all over social media and in store at Ulta so this sale was an excuse to pick up a few products. I have bee venom face mask that I swear by so I decided to try out this body Souffle to see if it tightens up my whole body. After one use, there was a slight tingly feeling so I an hoping for good results with this one. Wish me luck!
Nip + Fab Beesting Fix Toning PadsToner is my favorite part of skincare.These cleansing pads will come in handy for traveling and at home before I put on my favorite Bee Venom mask! More to come on my skin care routine. I have been using these pads for a while and like them a lot.
Nyx Gotcha Covered Concealer in SandThis concealer has mixed reviews on the Ulta Site, but I decided to try it out because it had been in my cart for a while. It's supposed to have a really thick consistency, which I don't mind, just hope it doesn't crease like crazy. I got to use this once and it reminds me of the It Bye Bye Undereye Concealer in consistency. It is extremely thick, but has awesome coverage. It's won't be for everyone, but I like it so far.
Nyx Sculting Duo in Honey/EspressoI saw +Lawrencia Lovette using this on Snapchat and decided to pick it up as it looked like it blended out well. I am forever on the search for the perfect liquid contour and highlight so this one gives me a little hope. After a few initial uses, I really love the consistency of this product and blends out really good with my beauty blender. Another bonus is the applicator, its small enough to get precise application of the contour on my nose and cheeks.
Nyx Cosmetics Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter in "Gold Rush"I got this liquid highlighter in store a few days before Christmas and I am more than sure that this one of the new NYX launches for 2017. From the swatches it is extremely reflective and seems to lock in place almost like a sheer cream eye shadow. I picked up a golden shade called Gold Rush and I used it once on the tip of my nose, but a full review is coming soon so I'll hold off on giving my opinion on these just yet!
Nyx Dewy Setting Spray (not pictured)This is my favorite setting spray to apply in excess to get rid of the powdery look that a full face can sometimes give. I picked up two, because I go through these like every few months and they were 40 percent off which is rare these days!
I have so much testing and trying out to do! I definitely want to review a bunch of these!
