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!!

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 :)
So here comes my NYX lipsticks!
I’m so horrible cause it took me so long to share my NYX products with you guys! I’m quite upset to say that out of the many pictures i took, i’m only using two. Epic fail, i say.
I actually took quite a number of pictures of my NYX lipsticks and even did an on-lip swatch of them, but my camera couldn’t capture the colours right. The pictures didn’t show the true colour of the lipsticks.
So i can only provide a swatch on my arm. The colours that i swatched is pretty much accurate. I dare not say it’s super accurate though.
Harmonica and Strawberry Milk looks pretty much like in the picture. Paris however, somehow looks a bit dustier in real life. It’s not as intense as the picture below.
Harmonica, Strawberry Milk, and Paris
After receiving and trying out all three of these, i realized that i’m not much of a lipstick person. I can’t say much about them because i haven’t been wearing them out.
For one, the only time i smack on lip colour is during the night when i’m at the club or something. And my choice would most probably be lipgloss because i like how it shines when it catches light in the dark. I definitely prefer lipgloss to lipstick when it comes to outings at night.
And secondly, i eat and drink too much to be reapplying. At least lipgloss sort of reminds me to not to lick my lips too much cause it’s sticky.
In other words, it was an impulse buy.
However i don’t regret buying them because the colours are pretty and they’re super cheap. I love the colours (except Paris, looks a bit purply on my lips) and i will make an effort to wear these babies out.
Hmm.. i figured i shouldn’t let my efforts go to waste completely so here’s a couple of pictures from the day i was swatching the lipsticks :)

Strawberry Milk; it looks lighter here
