NYX Black Lips Lip Pencil Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

A black lip liner is not something that you’ll go shopping for everyday, is it?! But since I got into this trend of wearing black lips this season a black lip liner was a must so I bought NYX Black Lips Retractable Lip Pencil about two months ago when NYX opened its first store in my city. I got a retractable lip liner which is a mechanical one, just because this is what they had in black at NYX counter but I wouldn’t mind using a sharpener for a classic lip pencil. NYX Retractable Lip Pencil comes in 19 rich pigmented shades so you can choose any other color to match your lipstick if you like.

NYX Pink Lust, Run The World, Subversive Socialite, Alien Liquid Suede Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello cuties!

It was about time to review my new NYX Liquid Suede colors since it has been more than a month since I did that NYX makeup haul. I’ve been testing these colors and wore them for a few days right after I bought them but I kinda prioritized other articles so I’m so sorry I’m late on this review. NYX Liquid Suede are already famous liquid lipsticks and they were available until last year in 12 shades. Well so it happens that NYX has extended the color range for Liquid Suede Cream lipsticks with 12 new more shades this year. I picked up three of the new shades and one of permanent colors which you can see lined in the photo bellow so if you are curious for lip swatches and more details follow me after the jump.

NYX Doll Eye Mascara Review, Swatch, Photos

Hello beauties!

A new mascara that I got to try out since NYX Cosmetics opened its first store in Bucharest was NYX Doll Eye Mascara. What I loved from the start about this mascara is that on the packaging it shows a photo with its brush so you can very well see the bristles and decide if this is something that you would wear. I’m actually quite picky when it comes to mascara wands so if I don’t like the bristles I don’t even bother to try the product. I do admit is not a healthy attitude because there are times when a new mascara can surprise you and give you big, fat lashes.

Hello doll-face! For irresistibly fluttery eyelashes try this mascara on for size. Doll Eye Mascara uses a unique blend of natural oils Vitamin E and nylon fibers to extend eyelashes to almost faux proportions. Choose from lengthening volumizing or waterproof versions.

NYX Sugar Cookie, Blackberry Pie Butter Gloss Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

Since NYX opened its first store in Bucharest I’ve been visiting the counter pretty often and since I already showed you my latest NYX makeup haul, it was time for some product reviews. In the beginning of this fall I was in the mood for some dark, even black lip colors as well as hot pink shades, while later on I started shopping for colors that I wouldn’t even seen myself wearing a month ago. 🙂 So let me show you these two NYX Butter Gloss shades in Sugar Cookie and Blackberry Pie that were so fun to wear alone and even mixed together.

NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

Since NYX opened its first store here in Bucharest Park Lake Mall I honestly got to try out a lot more products than I used too, some of them sent for consideration and others that I bought myself. To tell you the truth I thought I’d not be using NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand anytime soon as it was at the bottom of my review list and somehow I had a feeling that I wouldn’t be impressed by this product. One day while I was in a hurry and reaching out for a new lipstick shade from my Hello Kitty bucket (this is where I keep my lip products that are waiting to be tested & reviewed) I stumble upon this concealer which I obviously misplaced. So since it was already sitting right there I thought, OK let’s give it an early try and see what it can do. This is one drugstore product that really impressed me so I thought it definitely needs to be reviewed ASAP.

NYX Cobalt Jumbo Eye Pencil Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

I’m no stranger to NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils (review, swatches) as I’ve gathered a couple of shades over the years, but the No.627 Cobalt shade is definitely new for me. I received this one along with a bunch of new NYX items at the opening event of first NYX store in Bucharest. NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils are cheap and offer a wide variety of colors, so it’s impossible to say you haven’t found your right shade.

NYX Code Breaker Ombre Blush Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

I’m crazy over pink, but you already knew that about me…so when I saw this gorgeous and vivid NYX Code Breaker Ombre Blush I just couldn’t believe my eyes that a blush can get this pigmented. The ombre trend was going strong last year and took a small break this year, but if you’ve seen the new Dior Spring 2017 Collection (info, photos) then you know it will be revived in a few months. Ombre lips, hair or nails, you name it…but ombre blush? Well this is something new for me, even though I know NYX came up with Ombre Blush collection for fall 2015 and featured 8 shades. Recently a got a bunch of new NYX makeup products but after the opening store event here in Bucharest I had to check out the place one more time so here’s my NYX makeup haul with products that I’m about to review later this month.
