The only thing better than affordable makeup is affordable makeup that’s on sale. You can’t beat that! One of my favorite drugstore brands is NYX because they make some great quality lipsticks, eyeshadows and more that rival higher end brands like MAC and Urban Decay at a fraction of the price. Every time I go to CVS or Ulta, I manage to pick up at least 2 NYX products because they’re almost always on sale. And you know me. I can never resist!
Some time ago, I picked up a handful of new NYX goodies from Ulta and almost completely forgot about them. Until I came across an old pic of my haul in my phone and went digging through my stash for find it. I picked out some nice stuff!
Like Pops and Little Susie Butter Lipsticks. When I posted my old haul pic on Instagram everyone went nuts over them so I had to pull ’em out and play a bit. Pops is a neutral rosy pink that’ll look great on anyone while Little Susie, a warm fuchsia pink, is more for the bold lip divas.
I’m a sucker for liquid lipsticks these days so I added yet another Soft Matte Lip Cream to my collection–this time in San Paulo. It’s a vibrant hot pink that looks a lot like Little Susie but it has more of a wine undertone and that luscious semi-matte finish.
I also picked up one of the Incredible Waterproof Concealers in Nutmeg, too. I’ve never tried any of NYX’s foundations or concealers because I’ve never really spotted WOC friendly shades in store until recently. My local Ulta seems to carry the full range of foundations and concealers so I was finally able to find a good match.
I haven’t tried it yet but I was pretty pleased with the color and texture when I finally cracked it open to swatch. The Incredible Waterproof Concealer feels soft and creamy and seems to have great coverage too so I have a feeling I’m going to like it. Plus, it’s waterproof which could be a huge deal for my watery allergy eyes. I can’t wait to try it!
Have you tried any of these NYX goodies before?
