NYX, MAC and Medusa's Makeup Haul!

Wednesday, 16 March 2011
Hiya,

Firstly I just want to say thank you to all my followers, it's amazing being able to share my love for make up with others. Being able to talk about it all is amazing, especially as none of my family and friends are into it as much as I am!

So, I received a few items in the post and thought I would share them with you.

These are from Genie Cosmetics and Cocktail Cosmetics. Both these companies sell discounted cosmetics which is great when you want to save a little money.

For me it was the first time trying out Medusa's Makeup products. I don't think they are that well known but their pigments are quite popular. I got 'Golden Boy' which is a bright, almost yellow gold and 'Full Moon' which is almost the same as 'Pink Opal' by MAC. It looks white but on the skin it has quite a prominent pink sheen. These pigments are absolutely gorgeous, they don't disappear when blending and look beautiful.

I also purchased the MAC pigment in 'Melon'. This is really popular and I just love this colour on my lids, it is a golden peach and is really pretty. I also got 'Twinks' ('Dirty plum with gold reflects') eyeshadow in pan form, to add to my Z palette. It is great as a crease colour when you want to do a neutral eye.

'Smolder' is a black eye kohl. I only ever use Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide On in 'Zero' but I wanted to try something different. For me it seems to be living up to my expectations and lasts a long time on my waterline with minimal smudging.

The two lipstick I got are MAC's 'High Tea' which is a pinky beige. 'Tea Rose' by NYX is a salmon pink and although I've never worn a colour like this before, I love it on my lips.
'High Tea' is a lustre finish which is one of my favourites. I like shades like these because although they are kind of nude, they really compliment my NW30 skin.

NYX lipsticks as always, are creamy and on my lips they last for a really long time. I also find that they are quite moisturising too which is a definite plus.

I'm actually really happy with all my purchases and that rarely happens when getting things online.

I've got another haul coming up soon with some Crown Brushes that I'm excited to try out.

Don't forget to enter my giveaway which is open until Sunday 20th March!

  2. B52 looks gorgeous! I agree NYX round lipsticks are amazing x

    I had never heard of Medusa's Makeup either but wanted some pigments and thought this would be cheaper. It was well worth it though.

    Just followed x
