So my latest shopping trip took me to Boots and our new NYX Cosmetics stand. It was like stepping into makeup heaven. I spent a long while swatching everything possible on my hand, even things I didn’t really need. By the end of it I looked like a bit of an abstract art piece.
However, I did manage to reign myself in and came home with four new pieces to add to my collection, all of which fill me with so much excitement.
Firstly, NYC Colour Mascara in CM07 Forget Me Not. It’s a gorgeous, bright purple colour which I’m hoping to ease myself into using. I love a pop of colour on the eyes and I’ve been looking for new ways to experiment with it. I’m hoping a swipe of this on my bottom lashes will be a nice introduction. Eventually I hope to figure out a look where I can wear it on both my top and bottom lashes.
Next I have two new liquid eyeliners: Glam Liner Aqua Luxe in GLA06 Glam Pink and Liquid Crystal Liner in LCL104 Crystal Silk. The thing I love about both of these is the sparkle! In the pink, it’s very subtle but there’s still enough to catch your eye without distracting from the lovely soft pink colour. The gold is dramatic and bold. It’s sure to make a statement on any look that it’s paired with.
My final, and perhaps my favourite product is their Glitter Primer. As you know, I’m a huge fan of glitter, but I’m not a huge fan of the mess or the creasing if you cover your eye with it. On the box, it claims to solve both of these problems which makes me very excited indeed. The thought of also trying Glitter Lips is also now more than a thought and something that will finally happen thanks to this little tube of magic.
All in all, this little trip only set me back £26.50 which is pretty darn good. I have zero complaints so far. In fact the most expensive item that I bought was the Glitter Primer and even that only cost £8.
If anyone would like me to review any of my new products in greater depth, or you just want to see my looks, let me know in the comments.
On a bit of a side note, I also have a new instagram completely dedicated to this blog so you can know in advance what I may be posting about and catch a glimpse of some of my daily looks. You can follow me in the sidebar or by searching a_little_sparkle_xo.
