Hello guys! I was naughty and did some shopping recently. Yesterday was the grand opening of another Nyx store here in Moscow & I was in the queue with another friend of mine for 3 hours! I know, sounds crazy. πŸ˜› We were hoping to be the first 100 customers because they gave out 5 complimentary free gifts. Unfortunately we did not managed to be the first 100. πŸ™ I wasn’t quite bummed honestly because at least the lipstick shades I wanted are still in stock. πŸ˜€

I’ve been wanting to try their Full Throttle Lipstick rangeΒ because I heard so many good reviews from other YouTubers & bloggers. It is said to be waterproof with minimal transfer. Definitely something up my alley because I don’t really like to reapply my lipsticks every once in awhile.

I got the Full Throttle Lipstick in the shade “Locked”. This range of lipsticks come with a weird shape which I am not too sure if I like it. I think I prefer the traditional shape of a lipstick. But overall I am not really bothered by it so as long the formulation is good & the colour is amazing. πŸ™‚

Been finding for the deep purple/plum lipstick & I was super in love with the colour when I swatched it in store. πŸ˜€ I was worried that it might look very similar to Mac’s Fashion Revival but I had to take the chance. πŸ˜›

Left: Mac’s Fashion Revival. Right: Nyx’s Loaded.

This picture is not really doing its justice but in real life the one from Nyx is more darker than Mac’s. I cannot wait to try it on my lips! πŸ˜€ I am so thorn between not keeping my hopes high and really wanting it to the the perfect shade I’ve been looking for. πŸ™

Next I got the Nyx’s Matte Lipstick in the shade “Crazed”. When I first lay my hands & swatched it in store I knew I had to get it! πŸ˜€ Nyx has some really good shade & I am like just take all my money already! πŸ˜›

Orangey red/pumpkin shade has been pretty on trend this autumn/winter. Absolutely adore this shade plus I do not have something like this in my collection. I think I can see myself wearing this quite often for the rest of the winter season. πŸ˜€

The last thing I got from Nyx is their Pro Shading Brush. I’ve been wanting a set of brushes but unfortunately they can be pretty pricey. πŸ™ so I am still saving up to get myself a set one day. πŸ˜€

This brush is super soft & it is made of synthetic fibers. It is dense but the right amount of comfort to get the job done if you get what I mean. You know how some brushes feels uncomfortable as if it is poking your eyes? But not this one! πŸ™‚ I think Nyx has some affordable & good quality brushes. Cannot wait to get more brushes from them in the future.

I did not even realised I was running low on my Mad Hippie’s Exfoliating Serum. If you have been following me for awhile you know how much I love that serum.

I am so happy with the results I am getting but at the same time I really want to try other serums from this company. I went to the store hoping to get the Mad Hippie’s Vitamin C Serum but unfortunately I went to 3 stores in total & none of them have it in stock. πŸ™ Not to forget I only had 2 hours of sleep the day before so I was super bummed & basically running on autopilot mode. πŸ˜›

This Mad Hippie’s Vitamin A Serum was the last bottle when I visited the last store. I am like you know what, I am going to give this a try. I will do a more in depth review once I really test out this product. Hopefully it doesn’t disappoint me as the exfoliating serum kind of kept the bars high. πŸ˜›

So that is it for my mini beauty/skincare haul. πŸ˜€ Hope you guys enjoyed this post & have a great weekend.

 

Vanessa,x.
