NYX Haul | First Impressions

Hi Beauty Lovers!

I recently attended the Beauty Show UK with the gorgeous +Charlotte-Louise Thompson, and I went a tad NYX cray cray. They were offering 10% discount off all items so I bought more than I actually intended, but I did show restraint and put some items back, kudos to me.

If you would be interested in seeing what +Charlotte-Louise Thompson and I got up to at the Beauty Show UK then let me know and I'll arrange a blog post.
Firstly I hit the base products, because who doesn't want flawless skin? I was in the market for a new concealer, I've recently started to tire of the beloved Collection Lasting Perfection concealer, it seems like I've only ever used this concealer, so when I saw the HD Photogenic Concealer I snatched the lightest shade I could find. On first impressions it has the coverage but not the thickness, its incredibly smooth and creamy texture glides on to conceal my problem areas.

The next product that caught my eye was the 3-in-1 Wonder Pencil, its made for pin point concealing, lip lining and subtle water lining. This has quickly become my best multitasking friend its so easy and convenient.

My last neutral base product I picked up was the Eyeshadow Base in Skin Tone, I already have the white base and love it, on first impressions it appears slightly orange toned, however it'll be covered in eyeshadow so the points moot.
L-R - Strawberry Milk | Yogurt | Gold

Next I went to town on the Jumbo Pencil's, these little beauties are multitasking heaven, you can highlight, apply alone or wear under an eyeshadow as a pigment boosting base. Strawberry Milk is the perfect spring/summer colour.
T-B - Merengue | Strawberry Parfait | Istanbul
Who hasn't heard about NYX lip products? I picked up their infamous Butter Gloss and Soft Matte Lip Cream. These are the perfect summer lip products, there light but have such pigmented impact. Merengue and Strawberry Parfait are the Butter Glosses and Istanbul is the Soft Matte Lip Cream.
I picked up the Studio Perfect Photo-Loving Primer in Green, I'm not sure how I feel about this primer, I thought it would be more opaque, but its very sheer. I haven't used this yet but I'm excited and intrigued to give it a whirl.
The last product I picked up was the Brush Definer - Eye, I've wanted a synthetic push liner brush for a while and this looks perfect, I cant wait to get my wing on!

This is my first NYX haul and so far I'm very impressed, what are you favourite NYX products?
