Nyx Haul!

Nyx is now in Finland! I've been a fan of the brand for some time, affordable high quality cosmetics always make me happy. My favourites have been the Soft Matte Lip Creams. Since Nyx was previously only available online, some products were hard to choose. I prefer to try concealers and foundations on my skin before committing to buy them, as matching the shade to skintone is VERY difficult based on just pictures. So finally being able to see the products and try them out is great!

For a bag this small I sure fit in a lot of stuff!

The whole haul!

Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen and blush in Deep Plum.

HD Studio Finishing powder is a product I've been meaning to try for some time, and as I was running out of my only loose powder, now was the perfect time to get this baby!

The Wonder Pencil is a lip liner, concealer and a brow highlighter all packed into one little pen. The big black pencil is a lipstick base. I was excited that they had the brand new Lingerie lipsticks, an honestly I think I could have bought them all, the nude shades were all so nice! But I settled with Teddy in the end. I have Jumbo Eye Pencils in black and white, but wanted one to use as a base for taupes, so I chose the shade called Iced Mocha.

The contouring palette was an impulse buy. The shades might be too warm for my skin, but I waned to try it out anyway! The Matte Finish spray is one of the most popular products. I have a setting spray by Urban Decay, but I've not found it to actually make my makeup last longer, so maybe this on will fit my skin better. Last but not the least, I got a lip brush to apply Soft Matte Lip Creams with!

Jumbo Eye Pencil in Iced Mocha, Wonder Pencil in Medium, Lip Lingerie in Teddy, and blush in Deep Plum.
I'm the most excited about the Wonder Pencil, as I've been having some problems with lipsticks bleeding and this might be just what I need to fix the issue. The formula is very solid, dry and waxy, just what a good lip liner should be to keep the lipstick where it belongs. I tried it yesterday with a regular lip liner on top and it seemed to work just like I wanted!

I think I have to go back to get some more of the Lingerie lipsticks at some point, the muted browns and nudes were all super nice, and Teddy is very comfortable to wear and stays pristine for hours. Maybe next week, if there are any lippies left then!


  1. Omaan ostoskoriin valkkasin valkoisen Jumbo Pencilin, luumuisen matte lip creamin Prague-nimisessä sävyssä ja tuon saman puuterin. Himoitsin huomattavan paljon Köpistä ja Transylvaniaa, mutta vähän nössöilin ja ajattelin aloittaa helppokäyttöisemmällä värillä. Transylvanian levittyvyys on nettikommenttien perusteella vähän työläämpää, mikä sekin sai ainakin näin alkuun kallistumaan Prahan puoleen. Yhteen tämä kokoelma ei kuitenkaan jää, kunhan ständillä on pienempi ruuhka, ja pääsen kunnolla tutustumaan.

  2. Mmmm! All that makeup! (drools)

  3. I got me the finish spray recently, and I've already noticed a huge difference on my makeup last already. During Summer my foundation tends to go a bit cakey, as much as my concelear creases because of sweat. However, this spray makes my makeup last a good 6-8 hours without a single change even in the extreme Bucharest heat. Such a bargain! I'm curious, does it work for you too?
