Small NYX Haul +Update

Hello everyone. Finally a new post after three weeks of hiatus. Here is my small nyx haul purchased way back in january 2010. This is my first haul for 2010 and I absolutely love everything.

I bought it here:

^Thank god for this site because it offers NYX items at a very affordable price.

NYX rouge cream blush in HOT PINK
I am so in love with this blush. When I got it, I was really bewildered with its texture which is akin to a melted lipstick but when I applied on my cheek it was so pretty. I always have a hard time choosing pink blushes because they turn peachy pink on me after application but this one never failed me. It is very pigmented and glides smoothly on my skin. I just dab a very small amount on my cheek and voila -- dolly flushed cheeks in an instant.I will definitely buy a few more shades of this blush and I am looking forward to the ff. shades: orange, natural and red cheek.

^ look at its rich and creamy texture

NYX powder blush in TAUPE

Another great blush from is Taupe. This is perfect for contouring. This looks so natural on my medium skin tone (NC37). It does not look muddy when applied which is really good in defining the cheek bones and my nose bridge. The pigmentation of this blush in just right. However, I find it very soft for a powder blush and tends to crumble easily but not chalky at all. Also, this tends to have a grayish cast on my skin. There are times when this just don't look healthy on me and I use my Ella matte bronzer in light roast instead.

Here is the swatch of Taupe:

NYX Jumbo pencil in MILK

This has a very good color pay off. It is very creamy and glides smoothly. I find this pencil very useful since I use it to highlight my brow bone and the tear duct. The use of this pencil does not stop there because I also use this as my e/s base ever since I ran out of my artdeco. I applied it thinly on my lid and made my e/s more vibrant. And it makes e/s appear more matte!! I really love that fact because i like matte e/s more compared to shimmery ones. However, this creases on my dry lid but when used over a primer it stays longer.

  21. I love nyx jumbo pencil in milk too! I also find that it creases more without a primer but i love how it makes the colors pop especially yellow eye shadow on my skin tone hehe.

    I just saw a nyx blush last night in cocoa? I think its a tad bit lighter than what you have though, but that looks like it would work well for eyebrows since it looks a bit grayish hehe
