NYX: Blogger of the Month Part 2

So as you may have read I was selected by NYX as their blogger of the month for December, they sent me 4 products and this my review of the two other fab products I was sent:

-Precious Pearls nail varnish in 'Black'
-Mega Shine Lip Gloss in 'Tea Rose'

I loved both products design and packaging, very simple yet sturdy, and it would look great in any make up collection! (Not the festive Baubles in the background - feeling very Christmassy now)

Mega Shine Lip Gloss in 'Tea Rose'

Normally I do not reach for lip glosses very much, I generally prefer a matte look lip but on this occassion I had the oportunity to pick any shade form the lip gloss range, I selected Tea Rose, a  dusty pink shade.
Firstly I love the packaging and the cute bow print on the lid, I really am a sucker for pretty packaging, and this one ticks the box! It feels expensive and very durable to hold and use.
The product itself is described as 'combining high impact colors with lacquer to create unparalleled shine, it contains mineral and lanolin oils to hydrate and condition lips to protect the pout and is available in a dazzling array of shades'
I really loved the texture of the lip gloss, it applies evenly and smoothly and is not sticky or heavy on the lips, the shade is very wearable and can easily be worn alone or on top of a lipstick to add some shine. The colour is quite pigmented for a lipgloss. This mega Shine Lip Gloss really does deliver on shine, moisture and softness and gives lips a colour boost! I will definatly be purchasing more... and if you like lipglosses I urge you to check out the range!

Precious Pearls nail varnish in 'Black'

I had seen a lot of these 3D nail varnishes around - but as I have been wearing acrylic nails for quite a while now they had not appealed to me, after being sent this NYX 'Precious Pearls' I was intrigued to try it and see how it really looked.
I chose the black shade as I think it looks most sleek and would look nice for a night out. The kit comes with 2 bottles,  a black NYX nail varnish and a bottle of tiny 'pearls' (The pearl bottle also comes with a stopper to prevent you opening it up and loosing the balls all over the floor) - Another bonus the nail kit comes with a small funnel so you are able to put the 'excess' back in to the bottle.

The kit itself was easy to use, simply paint the all nails with the black polish and leave to dry, then re paint the nail you want to add the pearls to (normally the ring finger) , then sprinkle over the pearls and leave to set.

This nail look is definatly best worn for an evening or night out, as day to day wear the pearls wouldn't probably last very long.
