NYX Haul + Review

German people had something to celebrate in the month of august, because NYX Cosmetics is finally available in our drugstores. I always wanted to try NYX products out but I didn’t want to pay for shipping and their stuff was quite expensive in online stores. So I freaked out when I heard that they’ll finally sell their products in our german drugstores. On tuesday I went to my local drugstore and picked four NYX products up. I used them already and tested them, so I can not only tell you what I bought but also review them. Let’s just get into the actual post.

I was drawn to this product right when I saw it, because it looks exactly like the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wizz in my opinion, so I thought this might be a good dupe. I researched the products on the internet and found reviews that also claimed exactly that, even though the review were really mixed, some loved it and some didn’t like the product at all.
To me this is the best brow pencil I ever used. It looks so natural and fills in my brows beautifully, I’ll repurchase that until the day that I die, believe me. Such a great products and so long lasting as well. I am impressed.

The Wonder Stick is one of the produtcs that I knew I want to get from NYX. I watched so many reviews on this highlight and conturing product that I wanted to see for myself how amazing it is. I first wanted to purchase the Stick in the version for light skin, but tested that one out and I didn’t like the colour that I am supposed to contur with on that stick, so I went with the shade Universal.
I only tried the contouring part of the stick and I am impressed. It goes on so smoothly and blending this into your skin works perfectly. I didn’t expect to like this product as much as I do, to be honest. It’s also my first ever cream contour product, so it’s a good way to start cream contouring, if you are a beginner as well.

This product is so hyped on the internet and every beauty blogger/youtuber talked about them at least once. This is the product that was the reason why I always wanted them to sell NYX in german drugstores.
Liquid lipsticks are my favorite kind of lipsticks, so I knew that I’ll probably like this one, as long as the formula is good. I tried this lipstick on, went shopping, drank a whole lot of water and ate a hamburger and the hamburger was the only thing that effected how my lipstick looked. It looked perfect until I took a bite out of my hamburger. The formula on this lipstick is beautiful, it doesn’t sit in the lines of my lips, it doesn’t dry out my lips too much and it looks perfect until you eat something oily or greasy.
Make sure to always use a lipscrub before applying a liquid lipstick, I use the one that I made myself. Do you want me to make a post about my DIY Lipscrub? Tell me in the comments down below or send me an e-mail about it. 🙂

NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray Foto 25.08.16, 1 45 27 PM

I actually wanted to get the matte version of their setting spray but accidently took the dewy one. I tried the setting spray anyway and this helped my make up to stay on for longer than it normally does. I just didn’t like the dewy finish that spray gave me, so I might need to visit my drugstore once again and purchase the matte version. This is probably a good setting spray for people with really dry skin that still want to have that natural glowy and dewy look. It wa a little too dewy for my skin type, though. Still a good product.

 

Here are pictures of the look I had on for the whole day. I went shopping on that day with my parents, so there was a lot of changing, trying on different clothes and running around BUT I still got compliments on how amazing my make up looked that day. I am really happy with the products that I tried and I’ll absolutly buy more NYX products in the future.

H&M Haul #1

Lately I’ve been online shopping on H&M because they had a huge sell on their App. So I thought I’d share the items I got with you all, also I add some other random things that I bought online. So let’s start with the stuff from H&M.

hmdressThe first thing that caught my eye was an apricot Jerseydress, which is perfect for the summer time. It looks beautiful on and am so happy I got it.

This dress retails for 6,99€ on sale right now.

hmblouse

The next thing is a short off-shoulder blouse with little palm trees all over. This is a short top, so best combined with something high waisted. Again perfect for summer.

This off-shoulder blouse retails for 7,99€ on sale right now.

hmskirtNow let’s go to the more basic stuff that I bought. The first thing is a black flared skirt, which is a stample piece for summer. You can’t go wrong with clothing like that.

This flared skirt retails for 9,99€.

hmshirtThe next clothing item is something I’ve been looking for, for ages. It’s a figure-hugging shirt with shoulder cut outs. I’ve been looking for a shirt like that for such a long time, but never really found one that fit perfectly but this one does.

This Cold-Shoulder-Shirt retails for 5,99€ on sale.

hmjeansAgain something that everyone should own. A skinny high ankle jeans. I am obsessed with high-waisted jeans and this one is amazing. This might be an ankle jeans but I am not the tallest person, so for me this is a regular skinny jeans. This skinny high ankle jeans looks amazing with everything.

This Skinny High Ankle Jeans retails for 9,99€.

 

 

Now let’s get to the things that i bought somewhere else, those might be random and not really interesting to some of you but I still wanted to share this with you all.

maskeThe most random things of them all is a mask made out of metall that I bought off of amazon. You might be wondering why I order something like that, but my boyfriend and I got invited to a birthday party with a mask theme. That’s why I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on a good mask. This will probably be good for a one time thing. We’ll see when I wear it.

This mask retails for 14,90€.

bookI also bought myself the new Harry Potter book called “Harry Potter and the cursed child“. This is a must-have for every potterhead out there. I already finished the book and I love it. I recommend this highly, even though it isn’t written like a real book, this is the official script of the play that is currently in London. Get it yourself and fall in love just like I did.

This book retails for 19,99€.

zpaletteLast but not least, I bought myself my first ever Z-Palette. I just quickly needed one because of my highlighter from Hidden Cosmetics. I am so happy I got this one, it’s the perfect size and works perfectly. Shipping only took about 2 weeks, which is good considering this is shipped from asia.

This Z-Palette retails for 10,51€.

 

 

That was everything that I ordered online in the last month. I used the official pictures of the products for this haul, next time I’ll probably do a Try On Haul, maybe tell me in the comments or via mail what you prefer. But that’s it for this week. I hope you liked this post and let me know what you bought the last month, anything that you really love? I want to know, because I am officially addicted to online shopping and I need to know that I am not the only one who is.

Also I discovered that I still have an account on ask.fm, so you’re feedback is also welcome there. Click here to get to my ask.fm account.

Drugstore Haul #1

I went shopping with my Wifey since I needed a back up for my amazing concealer that will be mentioned in this post as well. But like always, you go in the drugstore to get one thing and come out with more than just that one simple thing. I did not go crazy in our drugstore but I got four things and all of them are working perfectly, so I decided to tell you about them. Keep in mind I bought this in germany, so I don’t know if it is available in other countries, I hope it is. Let’s get to the haul.

Catrice Cosmetics Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer in 010 Porcellain

The brand says:Foto 06.08.16, 6 59 36 PM
Liquid, high coverage and ultra-longlasting concealer. Perfectly camouflages under-eye circles, spots and even tattoos. Apply in small dabs and let dry well. Apply extra layers if needed. Waterproof.

I love this concealer, it’s high coverage and buildable as well but I don’t think it will actually camouflage tattoos but other than that it covers everything perfectly. It’s also longlasting, as long as you set it with banana powder or any powder that you prefer. To me this is a perfect concealer and one of the best ones I ever used. Totally compareable to some high end ones.
Price: 3,49€

P2 Intensive Khol Eyeliner in 180 flawless Namibia

The brand says:Foto 06.08.16, 6 59 23 PM
Longlasting kohl eyeliner that gives your eyes more dimension.

I bought this eyeliner since I do not have the biggest eyes and I wanted to try a light one to make them appear bigger by applying it on my waterline. And to me this really does the job and it lasts all day too. A good buy, I might keep you updated when I tried it for a little while longer.
Price: 1,95€

Catrice Cosmetics Limited Edition Contouring Brush

The brand says:Foto 06.08.16, 7 01 04 PM
Professional contouring brush – suitable for any type of make-up textures. The angled shape of the brush supports a precise application. The dense, soft bristles provide a smooth and even colour finish on the skin.

I love this brush, it is amazing to first apply the contour with. It is precise BUT I do need another brush that is a little more fluffy to blend it out to get my desired contour look. My contour never has been sharper than with this brush, I do not regret buying this brush at all and will always use this now.
Price: 4,49€

DM Ebelin Professional Fan Brush

The brand says:Foto 06.08.16, 7 00 45 PM
This fan brush is perfect to apply powder highlighter and bronzer. It leaves you with the perfect finish.

This is the best product out of them all. It applies my Gatsby Highlighter by Hidden Cosmetics flawlessly. I never had my highlight looking so good. You get that amazing goddess glow that still looks natural, if that makes sense. Totally worth everything. Can’t recommend it more.
Price: 3,95€

 

Here are two pictures of my highlight and contour for you.
