I think this post pretty much concludes the last of my makeup buys for the past couple of months. Not sure if i’ll be buying anymore any time soon but i will definitely let you guys know if i do.
So i can finally talk about my NYX products that i got from the forum cause i’ve been making rather use of them. I received them around July, so now you know how long it takes for me to write a review *shifty eyes*
Ahem. Anyway, here they are.
NYX Trio Eye Shadow
Nude | Taupe | Brown
I was very excited to get the Trio Eye Shadow in shades of brown because i recently have a thing for brown eyeshadows. However, i was quite disappointed with the Trio Eye Shadow for a couple of reasons.
Firstly, the actual colour is far off from what was shown on the NYX website. So far the only colour that i make most use of is Brown. As for the other two colours Nude and Taupe, i’ve only used them once or twice.
Either way, i should’ve known better that NYX is horrible for their swatches on their website so it was my mistake for not doing more research on it.
Secondly, i chose to buy the Trio Eye Shadow cause i wanted to depot the shadows and transfer them to my M.A.C palette. However this NYX palette packaging is different. From what i’ve googled, i think it’s a newer packaging compared to the older ones, so i don’t think i can depot them.
But nonetheless, i’ve been using the NYX shadows a lot recently so it shows that it serves me well. The colours come out rather nice too.
Besides that i also bought 2 brushes from NYX. Nothing much to shout about, but once again some how the brushes from US are always cheaper. I got them for around RM 20 each.
I found the slanting contour brush was extremely helpful when contouring my nose. I’m glad that i didn’t have to resort to buying an expensive slanting contour brush from Bobbi Brown.
And that’s all i got from NYX. Now it’s time for M.A.C!
I got to attend the annual Estee Lauder staff sale last month thanks to Jen. I can say that i’m very happy with this year’s purchase because i didn’t buy anything that wasn’t on my list and i can foresee that i will be making full use of everything i bought.
I can’t really recall the price for each of them, but i’m sure that the price for each of them didn’t exceed RM 100 except for the perfume.
DKNY Be Delicious set; RM 140
Three for RM 70*
Swatches; colours are more or less accurate
This particular trio t was my best find in the pile of lip products during the sale. The lip products were all packed and sealed in threes, and the one i found had the best combination of colours.
And the best part was that the packet had the lipgloss that i’ve been looking for – the Cremesheen Lipglass in Boy Bait!!
M.A.C eyeshadow quad; In the Gallery
Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow and Long Wear Gel Eyeliner; RM 70
Ash and Mahogany Ink
That’s all for now! Hope you enjoyed this post and i will be posting up a look i did using some of these products soon :)
