Mini NYX Haul

First things first, can we all take a moment to have a little cry about how I bent my foam board?!

The amazing Scarlette recently got in touch with me about collaborating together! After I sent over a whole bunch of ideas, we decided to both post our drugstore hauls! I recently did a little NYX shop whilst in Reading, so it was perfect time for me, and Scarlette wanted to do a little haul so it was perfect for both of us!

Matte Finish Setting Spray

This is my first ever setting spray I’ve ever brought! I know, shock! I used to use my Mario Badescu Rose Water Facial Spray as a setting spray, but didn’t really find that it helped make my makeup last any longer than usual.

Vivid Brights Liquid Eyeliner – Envy

I haven’t tried this out yet, but I’m quite disappointed. I didn’t swatch it in store, but I did expect it to be more of a neon green colour like the packaging suggested. Hey ho, I still don’t have another liquid eyeliner in this shade, so I’m not complaining that much!

Vivid Brights Liquid Eyeliner – Violet

Guys. I’m in love. I’ve worn this pretty much everyday. I’m so impressed! It lasts really long, and the colour is beautiful! I had heard loads of people saying how it ‘cracked’ when it dried, and even though I don’t find it has at all on my eyes, it definitely does when I swatched it for these photos… Weird…

Cosmic Metals Lip Cream – Ultraviolet

Really disappointed with this! I thought the colour was STUNNING when I saw it in Boots, but when I swatched it at home, it’s super thick and patchy?! I think I’m going to have to have a fiddle around with this to see if I can make it work, but it looks like it will be going into the bin!


A BIG thank you to Scarlette who has been super patient with me! I’ve been super late with posting my half of the collab, so a massive sorry to her! Please make sure that you all go over to her blog and check out her haul!

  1. I love NYX products and I really want to try out the total control drop foundation. However I don’t have a counter near me and when I was at one the other day, the staff were so rude! They were just chatting to each other the entire time I was stood waiting to ask to be colour matched! Boooo! So I walked away without spending a penny.

    1. No way! Saying that, when I was looking around the counter, the staff seemed to ignore me and chat to each other! I was going to pick the drop foundation up, but I hate getting colour matched, but I hate getting the wrong shade haha! Hopefully next time you go in, you can pick it up!

  2. No worries! It was worth the wait. I’ve never tried any eyeliner in a color other than black but I’ve been waiting to try purple out so maybe I’ll look into this one. The color is gorgeous!! ❤ Thanks so much for being a part of my first collab!

      1. I guess I’m just kind of nervous to try a colored one because I’m not sure how to make it look good, ha! Do you have a tutorial on a colored eyeliner look? I’d love to read that if you did. & for sure! I’ll let you know when I have any ideas!

      2. I don’t unfortunately, no! I could always create one in the next few days if you would like? Also, I first went ahead with a dark navy blue, and then moved my way up to more brighter colours! It didn’t feel so scary that way!
