My growing love affair with Nyx cosmetics

Yep, I’ve fallen for Nyx’s products! As much as I would want to, I did not buy them all in one go. However, they offer promos like their “buy two, get one free”–which I was able to avail more than once. On my recent visit however, I got lucky, because they had a buy five, take one promo. In most cases I can resist, but where Nyx products are concerned, it would be a loud and resounding no.

One amazing thing about blogging is that you get to discover other bloggers and their blogs, and through them, you get to discover new things–new products, a different horizon of what the world could offer. While I am mostly a lurker in the blogging world, I do have my favourites. One of these bloggers is Rhianna of Robowecop. I don’t think I can say enough good things about her and her blog–she’s really funny, and from her blog posts, you’ll get a glimpse of how to down to earth and real she is.

While reading one of Rhianna’s blog entries, I saw one of hers about Nyx makeup products. Before that, I’ve only taken a cursory interest in that brand. I’ve heard of them, but never got around to buying anything from their store, probably because there’s no one I “know” who uses their products. Until that particular entry from Robowecop.

They were the first three products I got from Nyx–through one of their “buy one, take one” promos (they do this a lot, I swear) as a birthday treat to myself. The Stay Matte but not Flat foundation and the liquid illuminator mix well with my BB cream (sorry, I’m a girl who likes to mix and play with makeup products). What I love about the foundation (for testing purposes, I used it without my BB cream of another brand) is that at the end of the day, I still look dewy and fresh (I swear, cross my Nyx lovin’ heart), bordering on radiant.

Here are other things I bought from Nyx! I bought their soft matte lip cremes (I loved the shade Cannes so much so I bought a few other shades more later on). I also got two Liquid Suede lippies too (Kitten Heels and Cherry Skies) , but they were both difficult to remove, so one has to be careful while putting on the lip cream!

Yes, I do love the colour red.

 

But I don’t turn my nose up at the nudes. Gotta love ’em too!

 

That ends my haul so far! πŸ™‚ Have you tried buying Nyx products already? What are your favourites? πŸ™‚
