Makeup Haul: NYX Cosmetics & Max Factor

Hey everyone! If you didn’t know already NYX cosmetics had an awesome sale online 50% off NYX cosmetics which was a great deal! I didn’t quite shop online through. . . I am such an instant gratification girl where I want to try products in person and if I like it I buy, right? hee hee Anyway, instead of shopping online I went to my local Ulta store! They also sell NYX too and they had buy 2 get 2 free sale which is basically the same thing so I was like, lets shop!!

I really did not need any more eyeshadow, I am not kidding I have plenty of shadows! However, I was lacking in the lip department. I needed more colors like pinks, corals, and browns lipsticks and glosses. So, I totally took advantage of the sale and stock up on lip colors and I also purchased a few more jumbo eyeshadow pencils too.

I have to say I love the pigmentation on NYX’s lipsticks. They are nice, creamy and smooth on the lips which was a plus in my eyes. I also loved the smell of NYX’s lip glosses too. The smell reminds of cherry kool-aid drink, just yummy and sweet! Another great thing I love about NYX cosmetics is the price point of the products! They will run you from $3.25 & Up which is awesome if you are on a budget and want great quality makeup! You can find NYX Cosmetics at:

  1. cherryculture.com
  2. nyxcosmetics.com
  3. Amazon.com

Here are some of the goodies I decided to pick and share with you all. I love them so much and I can’t wait to wear them and also include them in some of my upcoming tutorials too!

Overall, I am so happy with the sale items I purchased and would reccommend anyone to try and use this cosmetic brand for sure.

Have a great weekend 🙂
