NYX Lip liner and Soft Matte Lip Cream Review!


While on a shopping in Barnsley (a town near where I live) I popped into boots and spotted an NYX counter! I don’t have one where I live so I was sooo excited when I spotted it! Something I have been wanting to try by NYX for ages is their soft matte lip creams because I have heard so much about them. I had to stop myself from buying the entire counter haha so in the end I picked up these 2 items: The soft matte lip cream in the shade 06 Instanbul and the retractable lip liner in the shade soft pink.

Retractable lip liner (soft pink)- I am not a massive fan of retractable lip liners just because I feel like they don’t last as long as pencil liners but since I loved the colour of this I got it anyway. I love this lip liner because it is quite soft, when you apply this it glides on the lips and doesn’t drag. The formula is really good and doesn’t smudge when its on.

Soft matte lip cream (Istanbul)- I am in love with the shade of this lipstick! Its like a pinky nude shade and perfect to pair with neutral makeup looks. I like the formula of this because its not too drying and it doesn’t crack once it dries which is a problem I have with some matte liquid lipsticks. This is more like a cream as the name suggests, which I love.


Those are the swatches of the lip liner and matte lip cream! The lip cream isn’t quite that dark in person its slightly lighter but its soooo nice I love it!

These are the first products I have tried by NYX and I am very impressed. Both products stayed on really well and are really good quality for an affordable price at £5.50 each.

Have you ever tried any products by NYX? If you have any reccomendations please make sure to let me know in the comments below!

Mini Winter Clothes/Accesories Haul.


Yesterday my Partners mum and I went on another shopping trip, we both needed some clothes for the colder weather so we decided to go shopping and get a few things.

We went to Meadowhall in Sheffield again, we love it because all of the shops are bigger than they are in our town and there is much more choice.

Our first stop was Primark (obviously) and I got this scarf, I have had my eye on it for a while and I just had to get it in the end. Its reversible which is why I love it so much! It is Tartan on one side and black and white dogtooth on the other side, this is good because depending on what I am wearing I can change the scarf around to suit it. Its really thick and perfect for autumn/winter months.


Next I got this cute little bag which was reduced to £3! I am in love with Nude colours and I am addicted to bags- so I couldn’t help buying this. Its perfect for days or nights out when you don’t want to take too many things out with you.


I also got this Pyjama set!


After Primark we went to H&M and I got these two jumpers for £7.99 each, I love H&M jumpers because they are really cozy and you can mix and match them to go with different outfits. I got them in a large because I like jumpers to be a little baggy on me when I wear them.


Lastly I got this plate from the £1 shop just because it was so cute and reminded me of Cath Kidston!


We looked in a few other shops but I didn’t see anything else that I liked, I am yet to find a cardigan that I like, I’ve been looking for one everywhere and I cant seem to find one that suits me!

Have you been Autumn/Winter clothes shopping yet? If so what did you buy?

Thanks for reading! Love,
