NYX Cosmetics- Lipsticks and Jumbo Pencil in Photos

photored2photopink2,3photopink3photo nyx lippy

NYX Lipstick MLS 18 (Red) I always find it difficult to fall in love with a red colour but I think this works with me quite well. One of my favs at the moment.

MLS 17 (top left) This colour is the darkest of the pinks and  bit more subtle. It’s more of a purply pink.  MLS 02 (bottom right) is vibrant and stands out more. I think both the colours are great, can’t decide between the two in the mornings!

Black Jumbo Pencil- Quick Smokey Eye

White Jumbo Pencil- As you can see the colour stands out more on my left eye where I have used the pencil as a base. The colour is definitely more vibrant on the left than on the right.

I was talking to make up mole about running out of my MAC translucent powder and wanting to find an alternative.

She kindly directed me to Elf.co.uk

They sell translucent powder for just under £4. Just ordered!

Check them out for great priced make up.

IMATS(4)NYX Cosmetics

As we were walking around the show, I noticed a long queue for one make up brand in particular, NYX. Now I didn’t have a clue about this brand but I queued up anyway (never one to miss out!). I’m glad I did as I was not disappointed.

They are a very popular, affordable make up brand and most important of all their make up is amazing.

Other people I got talking to were showing me their NYX favourite’s. So I’ve written for you a few NYX must haves:

White Jumbo Eye Pencil- This was recommended by a fellow make up artist who uses it as a base for eye shadows. I was encouraged by the fact she told me it really brings out  colour particularly in brown skins (purchased). Really makes a difference tried it myself.

Black Jumbo Pencil- excellent for a quick smokey eye

Matte Lipsticks- Very long lasting and not too matte if you know what I mean. Usually I find with matte lipsticks  that my lips dry out very quickly. I don’t have this problem with this lipstick at all. Favourite matte at the moment.

Once the miraculous stranger had performed his magic on make moles face, I just had to buy this!

I’m going to use the luminous green eye shadow with  MAC candy yum yum (bottom right, middle) and NYX Cosmetics (left) Pink mattes, MLS 02 &17. Also going to use NYX White Jumbo Pencil just for the pop!

I’m just wondering who will be willing to try…*looks for little sisters* hehe

IMATS (3)-Make up Designory ( MUD)

Now I have never seen this make up brand before but I have to say I was very impressed by the quality of their product. We were curious about their cream foundations and were a bit disappointed to discover their limited range for women of colour. However my opinion changed when we were given an impressive demonstration of how their product could work for us.

photo (98)

MuD foundations are made up of 55% pigmentation! Not only that, they are silicone based meaning that when mixed with a water based product i.e a primer, it’s soluble (blends together smoothly unlike oil based products)

The smoothness and application ease was second to none, it literally melted into the skin. Flawless application.

The lady demonstrating even went on to say the longest she had worn the product was 3 days, without it coming off! (not sure if this is a good or bad thing)

However if you are looking for a foundation with long staying power then this is it!

IMATS (2)- LA Splash: Eye Primer

With Primer, Without primer – Can you guess?

 

The difference is immense! The eye primer we brought was from a brand called LA Splash. You can see how intense and strong the colour is with primer. It is a vibrant change, can’t recommend enough.

Proof is in the pudding peeps.

IMATS(1)- What a Day!

There were so many stalls I didn’t know where to begin but I soon found my feet and was pleased by my discoveries . I was excited by the wonderful array of brands not very well known in the UK.

It was an eye opening experience and I realised that there is so much choice out there. If you look hard enough you will discover something amazing.

Here are a few snippets of our day:

 Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics

Lip Tar by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics– it literally is tar!
I love the fluorescent colour. Comes out exactly as it is on the package and has long lasting stay (which is not common in lip gloss) highly recommended
£11.50 Selfridges

I was impressed by their large selection of foundations. It’s nice to see brands showing consideration for all women with a variety of shades to choose from. Make up mole couldn’t get over their waterproof foundation!

Make up mole and the miraculous stranger

Make up mole was magically made up by a make up genius in the NYX queue. He literally whipped out his brush and some bright green eye shadow that he’d just brought  and performed a miracle. Will definitely be visiting him in Liverpool. Micheal Perks is the name.

In the House: Prom Edition

Sakile was In the House today.

She was getting made up for her friends prom and I have to say she looked absolutely beautiful. I love the Dark Glamour. That’s what I’m going to call it. She pulled it off really well so I got her to send me some snaps.

Lovely.

Reminds me off my prom, which I never quite made it to.

Got my parents to drop me off right outside then went clubbing in London. They weren’t too happy when they found out!
