I'm definitely a late comer to the NYX party.



I'm sure these are a permanent feature/fixture in most blogger residences by now, but I still thought I would give my two cents on the Soft Matte Lip Creams. Pigmented, creamy, matte, along with the Stila liquid lipsticks, these are definitely my preferred method of whacking on easy, opaque colour. I think really pigmented nudes look a bit.. questionable, at least on my own lips, so I opted for Ibiza, a delightfully bright, midtoned corally-pink. San Paulo is my surprising pick, it's far more warm and flattering than I thought it would be, really loving it.

The debate; set with powder and go with the Dewy Finish Setting Spray? Or skip powder and try the Matte spray? I do like the healthy, powderless look so I picked up the Matte Finish Setting Spray and I have to say I'm not disappointed. I know UD Deslick is a favourite but it just does not agree with me, I think it's actually pretty useless on my skin! Since failing with that, I've been a bit skeptical of setting sprays but this NYX number keeps my makeup on like my Laura Mercier translucent powder would, I can just embrace the texture of some of my truly beautiful cream/liquid formulas with it (namely Chanel's blush stick or Tom Ford's stick foundation).

I mainly picked up the Micro Brow Pencil (in Ash Brown) because it's made in South Korea. A little nod to my heritage-land you could say. The colour is spot on, and the teeny pencil end is lovely and firm and unyielding, there's nothing worse than a sloppy, soft brow pencil that becomes blunt and thick the second you use it and you end up with a creamy, clumsy brow!
