NYX long lip pencil haul

Auburn, Chestnut, Cocoa, Cabaret and Prune

I've been eyeing up NYX for a such a long time, I've heard so much praise for their products from bloggers and youtubers, so I'm surprised with myself that it took so long for me to take the plunge and give the brand a go. I'm not a big lip liner person, it's a step that I've never been too bothered with, but there have been times when I'll pop on a lippy and think that It would look even better with a liner. Also when I'm putting together looks for a tutorial, I feel it would be great to have the variation, instead of using the same old thing all the time. 

So far just from swatching I've found them to be super creamy and glide on with ease, one was so creamy in fact that the tip broke mid swatch :/. I'll have to use them more to get a better gauge of them, but so far I'm pleased. There were a few that were sold out when I made my order on ebay, so I'll definitely be picking up a few more.

I purchased mine from this seller on eBay, they were only £1.50 so you can't really go wrong.Do you own any NYX products?

Glamorous Neutrals

I'm trying to get back into the swing of filming tutorials, I seriously forgot how time consuming they were, but I'm glad to be getting back to them. This look was requested a really long time ago and I'm now only getting round to doing it, at least I did it right? :D I think you can now look forward to more tutorials.
