Hello everyone! I recently picked up a couple products from NYX which is a brand that I've wanted to try for ages! I've always envied US bloggers and vloggers as they have such easy access to this inexpensive yet brilliant quality makeup brand. Whilst wondering though town after work, I spotted a new shop that sold all kind of beauty and hair products at discounted prices - naturally I had to have a look around! To my surprise they had a huge range of NYX cosmetics from eye shadows to blushers, to lip glosses and palettes - I was spoilt for choice! In the end I decided to pick up only a couple items and if I fell in love with them, I thought I could come back for more!

The two products I decided to try were a Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in "Rust" and a Powder Blusher in "Desert Rose". Both of these shades looked perfect for Autumn as they're both deep red/ pink shades that would create gorgeous looks for this season. I knew I had to try a Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil as these are talked about so much in the blogging world, and I can see why! These are cream like eye shadows in a stick that can either work as an eye shadow base or as an actual eye colour. I like to use "Rust" as an eye shadow base as it gives my neutral eye shadows a burgundy tint. I find that it's great at helping my eye shadows stay on all day as well as giving my eyes a hint of Autumnal colour! I will definitely be picking up some more of these if I can find them as they were only £1.99 each!

As for the blusher, I am so impressed with the formula, texture and pigmentation (you may have seen it mentioned in my October Favourite's post!). "Desert Rose" is a gorgeous pink/ burgundy shade with a matte finish and is my current go to blusher for Autumn. As it's so pigmented, you literally just need to touch the blusher with your brush and you'll have plenty of product for your cheeks. As I'm quite fair, I'm not a fan of strong blusher so I like to wear mine quite subtle and natural. It wears on my skin really well and I hardly have to touch it up throughout the day. For £3.95 this is probably one of the nicest blushers I've tried and I really can't wait to pick up some more neutral shades for throughout the year!

So that's a quick little review and chat about my first 2 NYX products I've tried! Both of these products are still available on the NYX website so you can still try them out if you're in need of some new gorgeous Autumnal makeup! I would highly recommend these two shades as well as the actual Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencils and Powder Blusher lines - they're amazing value for money!

  2. These look really great for autumn. I have only one pinkish blush from NYX but I love it. Unfortunately we have only one store that stocks NYX and it has a very limited selection. I have to try those jumbo pencils!

  7. I really want to try more NYX! I ordered some stuff around two years ago from the website and got two of the jumbo pencils but unfortunately the cap cracks easily so they have ended up very smushed etc:( They now sell NYX in Next and I got one of their mega shine lipglosses the other day which I really like. They also had jumbo pencils but not a huge variety - I wanted to try out milk! xx

  9. Under £2?!?! That is amaaaazing!!! I would actually travel to that shop just for the NYX products at that price!
    Beautiful colours - I would recommend getting the pencil in MILK the only NYX item I own, but it makes the world of difference when being a little more adventurous with eye looks (or like parties/weddings)

  14. I've been wary of the NYX Jumbo eye pencils for a while now because I purchased the black one to use under my eyes, and it smudged to high heaven! I will so though, that the Rust color looks intense and I may have misjudged the pencils because I've never used them all over the lid like that. I may just do some online shopping later as a result..! xx
