I guess it's been a while! After some persuasion and a few glasses of wine with the girls, I'm back. I've always enjoyed blogging but struggled with the time I would allow myself to simply blog - this sadly led to a hiatus, but Beautiboe is awake and ready to blog.
Recently I've taken an incredibly strong liking to NYX Cosmetics since discovering it via Youtube beauty channels and purchasing a few pieces whilst in Germany for crimbo '15. At the moment, I believe the easiest way of purchasing NYX is online via Boots, Selfridges and my personal fave Feelunique - click here if you want 15% off! ♥.
So in my most recent Feelunique splurge, a few NYX Cosmetics items 'fell' into my basket. I ordered (a new found favourite might I say.. ) a few NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream's. I already purchased one due to seeing the shade 'Abu Dhabi' on someone and just needed to know what product it was (oops!).
I ordered (from left to right) 'Prague', 'Amsterdam' and 'Stockholm'. The soft matte lip creams are a velvety lip cream upon application, which settle to a matte finish with great lasting power! I would recommend before the application of these specific lip products that you exfoliate and moisturise your lips to enhance the look and wear of the lip products. Honestly, I'm becoming obsessed and I know my collection will definitely continue to grow considering they are only £5.50 each. They're handbag friendly, require no lip liner and are beautifully opaque for day or evening wear.
I find that i'm always one to stick to a single brand of mascara until it sadly discontinues. I took a chance and decided i'll also give a mascara from NYX Cosmetics a shot. My usual preference to a mascara is the plastic bristle wands, whereas the Doll Eye mascara is a usual brush. The application is smooth and does help elongate my eyelashes (woo!), even better that its not difficult to remove either. I'm sure once i've given this product a real trial I'll give a product review or maybe an 'empties' post.
I just want to say thank-you to all of you that have remained subscribed to this blog, also hello to any new followers I meet!
