NYX Haul

NYX Haul on Ribbons Down My Back

On my last Amazon order I added in the NXY blush in Pinched and the Natural Eye Shadow Palette. I've really been enjoying both products, so when NXY was having the fall sale on their website I filled up my basket with some fun new items to try. Since it was my first order I used their 25% off your first purchase code and spent $25 so I could get free shipping. So between all those deals, I really scored!

The main reason I made the purchase was because of the Eye Shadow Singles. Regularly they're $4.50, but the sale price was $1.00 each. Score! I ended up with five colors:

Deep Bronze, Walnut, White Pearl, Frosted Ocean, and Frosted Lilac.

When it comes to makeup I go for the simple and natural look, so that's why I got Walnut and Deep Bronze. Since they were so cheap I decided to go with a few colorful ones, Frosted Lilac and Frosted Ocean, to play and experiment with. White Pearl was one I got just 'cause it never hurts to have a white/neutral color that goes with everything. It even looks really good on it's own; it has a soft and subtle shimmy look.

Another eye shadow I got was the Love in Rio Palette in Bikini Bottom. It's regularly $6.00, but was on sale for $3.00. It's kinda hard to tell in the photo, but the left color is a soft pink. All three colors are have shimmer in them and they look so pretty once applied!

I wanted to get something with more sparkly and shimmery for special occasions, particularly with Christmas coming up. I went with the Glam Shadow in Soprano, which was $4.50. Once applied it's not too glittery, but it's a nice warm color that I really like.

I really loved the Blush I had previously bought in Pinched, so I decided to try a couple more. The colors I chose were Rose Garden, which is very close to Pinched, but just a bit brighter/pinker, and Terra Cotta, which is more like a bronzer. The blushes were $5.00 each.

The concealer I purchased was the Incredible Waterproof Concealer Stick in Fair, which was $5.00. Although I haven't used any other concealer before, I've been happy with this product. I like that it's a stick, making it really easy to apply.

On occasion I'll wear lipstick, usually when I'm going for a vintage look, so since the Lip Liner Pencils were on sale for $1.75, which are regularly $3.50, I decided to give it a go. I also got the Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk. People in the reviews section said it was great to use as a base before putting on eye shadow, so that's what I got it for. That was $4.50.

And that's everything! All in all I spent $25 on $56 worth of product. I've been really happy with the products I've used so far, with the Love in Rio Palette being my favorite.
