IMATS(4)NYX Cosmetics

photo nyx clear

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.

IMATS (2)- LA Splash: Eye Primer

photo (99)

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

Make up Atelier Paris
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.
