A Trip To NYX Cosmetics

On Sunday I took a trip to London to attend the Professional Beauty show, an event hosting hundreds of different beauty brands offering discounts and offers whilst demonstrating their products. I love these types of events as you can always pick up a bargain, but it is always so super busy and packed. Prior to the event I was told on Twitter that NYX Cosmetics were going to be there, I jumped for joy at the thought and my trusty floor plan confirmed that the brand would be there and would be offering 20% off their products. Can you guess which stand I went to when I first arrived? 

I wasn't really sure which products to pick up, I've seen the milk jumbo eye pencil being used everywhere on YouTube so I felt I had to pop that in my basket costing a mere £4.00! I haven't tried this out yet as I think it will work best underneath brighter eyeshadows or as a highlighter, you will most likely see me feature it in a video or review very soon. 

Whilst being pushed and shoved around I managed to grab one of the butter glosses, which only certain shades were left because somehow the shelves had been raided before I got to them. I got the shade Vanilla Cream Pie and I'm actually really liking it, I have to use it over the top of a lipstick otherwise it doesn't show up on me but it's a really pretty pink with a slight coral tone to it. The formula of this is beautiful and I'm already planning which shades to order to add to my collection, I really recommend these and at £4.00 I couldn't really say no, I wish I'd have picked up a couple more shades. 

Lastly I popped over to the base makeup side of the counter, where I was looking for a concealer as I know people say NYX products are super good and being a concealer addict I thought I'd try one of theirs out. I managed to find the HD Photogenic Concealer, there were around 8 shades and whilst melting from the heat of all the people surrounding me, I found it so difficult to pick a shade. I actually went for the lightest shade, there was one tube left stuck at the back so I got my hand in and grabbed it quick, it only cost £4.50 so if the colour wasn't spot on it wouldn't of been too much of a problem. The next shade available was too pink toned so I just went for the lightest one, as I'm using it under my eyes and under neath my foundation it actually works fine, it could probably be a tad darker to match my skin tone perfectly but it still works. 

I am super pleased with my products and they were bargain prices too, I will definitely be getting my hands on more NYX products in the future and I will be posting reviews of these products once I've given them a good test run. 

Have you tried any products from NYX?
