Wish list // NYX

NYX is a brand I hear so many good things about but here in the UK it's extremely hard to get hold of, that is until I came across the website The website stocks various brands and best of all offers free shipping! I was pleasantly surprised by the selection of products and colours they stock so thought I'd out together my NYX wish list for you all.

Firstly I headed straight to the 'jumbo eye pencils.' I think these have got to be one of the most talked about products from the line especially in 'Milk.' I put 'Milk' a pure white, 'French Fries' a bronze, brown with shimmer and 'Sparkling Leopard' a lighter bronze, gold. Can you tell I love my neutrals?!  They are described as creamy and a product that can be doubled up as a liner and eye shadow. I'm all into cream eyeshadows at the moment so these will be right up my street. I think the eyeshadow in 'Deep Bronze' will compliment the eye pencils perfectly allowing me to create the perfect everyday eye look. 

I'm one of those girls that likes to keep a tanned glow all year round so I'm always on the look out for a good bronzer. The fact this is a matte bronzer really caught my eye as a lot of drugstore bronzers do have glitter in. They come in three shades, light, medium and dark from which I chose medium. 

Anything coral or peach toned I'm all over so this blush in 'Peach' and lipstick in 'Peach Bellini' had to go on the list. The blush is described as a sheer blush but also highly pigmented so I'm interested to see how this would transfer on to the skin. There were more colours of the blush I wanted to try like 'Taupe' but have heard mixed reviews so narrowed it down to one to start with. Equally with the lipsticks there's a great variety of colours but wanted to try them before ordering lots. 

I'm sure all of you have heard of the 'soft matte lip creams' which I've wanted to try for a while. I went with 'Istanbul' a pretty pink to suit most skin tones, its hard to tell the difference between colours on the website so thought I'd play it safe. I think these are supposed to be similar to the Rimmel Apocolips, a creamy liquid lipstick just a matte formula. I haven't heard these are drying but I am skeptical as with most matte lip products. 

Have you tried any NYX products? What were your favourite?
