NYX: Blogger of the Month Part 1

After being selected as "NYX Blogger of the Month" for December – I was so thrilled and excited as I am a big fan of the brand! Also it is so nice to be recognised for my blog, I have not been doing it for very long and I am already so pleased with the look/style of it (it is like my baby) also being selected as NYX Blogger of the month is a huge compliment as I am a BIG fan of the brand...so first and foremost thank you to NYX!
As a brand I think NYX have got it just right and combine high quality with affordable 'drug store' prices, I also love the simple black and white packaging which you'll find on a lot of their products.
So once I had picked the colours and shades I wanted, I was eager to receive my products.
NYX sent me 4 products in total, 2 I will review below and 2 will be reviewed in another post at a later date.

The first two products I am going to review are:
  • Smokey Eyeshadow palette
  • Glam Liner Aqua Luxe in  shade ‘Glam Nude’

Smokey Eyeshadow palette

The Smokey eye-shadow palette consists of 6 stunning shades which are all fairly dark and very pigmented, they range from light frosted shades to shades which shimmer to more matte colours.
The Palette itself is described by NYX as being 'easy to apply and blend these 6 pigment packed powders will allow you to create an array of sexy, smoldering looks' - And I have to agree with them, as you can see from my photographs you will be able to create a range of looks with these colours, by either blending a few of them together or simply using the colours alone, it is a very universal palette to have in your collection - Definatly a must have palette, and at £8.00 it is very affordable.

Glam Liner Aqua Luxe in shade ‘Glam Nude’

This Glam Liner really appealed to me, and choosing a colour was a tricky decision, as there were 9 candy coloured shades to choose from. I opted for the 'glam nude' shade (a light gold champagne colour) as I thought it would be great for Christmas to add some sparkle to my eyes.  I love the thin black packaging it does feel expensive to hold, also the wand feels sturdy and nice to hold perfect for application.
I  have had 'glitter eye liners' in the past and never been impressed, they are always watery and not long lasting, but this is very pigmented and I swatched a little on my hand and within seconds it has dried and did not smudge when I touched it the gold shimmer of glitter is very eye catching, I am very impressed with the formula too as it glides on smoothly and did not flake at all!
This colour is rich bold and has the right amount of glitter to make this perfect for Christmas parties, and at £5.50 It is a fab price and I'm sure I will be purchasing more shades.
