NYX goodies – my last shopping haul for now
I’m not kidding. This is probably going to be my last shopping haul in a while. As a matter of fact this will be my last splurge in a while. I really do have more makeup and nail polishes than I need, so I’m trying to review/use those before I buy more. Another reason being, I’m saving up for a… new house :D With all the stolen package problems, loud neighbors, and random car alarms going off at night, this place is just getting too ghetto for me. I’m out!
Back on topic, I recently ordered a couple NYX products off Cherry Culture:
In my defense Cherry Culture was having a 20% discount storewide, so how could I pass up these darling polishes at $3.50 a pop?
Right off the bat the packaging and shape reminded me of the Deborah Lippman nail polishes, with a slightly longer and non-rubberized cap.
There were 140+ shades to choose from, so it was very hard for me to limit my selection to just 8. I know I have to many pinks and neutral shades, but I couldn’t help getting more. Here’s a Peach Fuzz on my nails:
It doesn’t show up clearly in the photos, but there’s a hint of shimmer, which I love. The color reminds me a bit of OPI Italian Love Affair, except less bright and more flattering for my skin tone. It took 2 coats to get full coverage and it wasn’t streaky at all :D
Wanting to get something different than my usual peachy pink blush, I decided to pick up Pinky – a medium hot pink, and Angel – a light peachy gold. I’m totally loving Pinky because it’s actually a very wearable and flattering color, though I have to apply very lightly or risk looking like a clown D: Angel is actually great as a highlighter, and I’ve found using it over Pinky creates a very soft flush of color.
That’s it for this haul! From now on my posts will consist of mostly reviews and tutorials – speaking of which, a hair tutorial will be coming soon! :D Thanks for reading and hope you all have a wonderful week!
