NYX Sale Haul
A couple weeks ago, Cherry Culture had a NYX sale and all of the NYX products were at 40% off, which is a BIG DEAL and perfect time to snag some NYX goodies.
NYX is one of my favorite non high-end makeup brand. I was tempted to say drugstore but drugstores don't actually sell them. At least not yet and I'm wondering what are they waiting for?
I don't know if you do the same thing I do but I grab a bunch of stuff I like and then put them in my cart until the dollar amounts gets to the point where I know I need to stop. I take them out, put them back in, take them out again. Try to figure out what it is I need most or want most until I get tired of going back and forth and make my purchase. The process can take up to an hour or more, lol. In the end, I'm like "just take my money!!!"
I thought about ordering $40 worth of product and get the free shipping but when I did so, there was so much stuff I didn't need! Anyhow, I think I did well. I managed to keep the grand total less than $30.00 with the cost of shipping included.
I added two more NYX Matte lipsticks to my collection. Honestly, I think the NYX Mattes are some of the best affordable on the market. They are everything that I want in a matte lipstick: creamy, non-drying, opaque, and pigmented.
I find these round lipsticks a hit or miss depending on the shade. I'm hoping this one works out. Orpheus is definitely not your typical lip color.
Lake Algae would have been perfect for my Emerald Green swatch post but this one came in a little tardy to the party. I will have to do a review and swatch on a different post.
NYX Wonder Pencil is a cool looking nude pencil. I picked the lightest shade and I think it will work well for brightening the waterline.
NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Cucumber. I couldn't resist the color. It's a bright yellow green lime kind of shade.
Makeup remover is something I always need to stock on and try to grab them on sale whenever I can.
The Cherry Culture lip balm was free if you spend $20 or more so I picked the raspberry flavor.
Did you take advantage of the sale? What's your favorite NYX product?
