I went to Watson’s this afternoon to go to the NYX counter to check if they have the new NYX contour kit that I saw online.
This is similar to the Anastacia Contour kit but with more shades. The Anastacia Contour kit is so hard to find. It’s always out of stock.
I was able to get the Smashbox Contour kit which some say it’s better than the Anastacia one. And I am happy with it.
But when I saw that NYX came out with their own version of the contour kit and I heard it’s very good, I wanted to get hold of it.
So, I went to check (even tho’ I know for sure it’s not yet available here since it just came out). And of course it’s not yet available here.
NYX is one drugstore brand that I like. It is cheap but very good. I love their blushes, their lipsticks are also good and they have some good eye make up palettes too.
I browsed around since I haven’t been to their counter in a long time. I came home with these.
I have never tried their baked blushes so I picked up these. It’s baked blush + illuminator + bronzer.
I swatched this and I really like it. It’s so pigmented and you don’t need to put highlighter anymore.
I also picked up their cream blush. I love cream blushes.
They also have the grinding blush. I don’t know who first started this grinding blush, I think Tarte started this. I am not sure tho’. NYX came out with their version of the grinding blush.
Grinding blush is good to bring when you’re traveling or good to bring with you in your purse. Because it’s not messy like the usual powder blush. You have to turn it around and it grinds the blush inside. So, you only get a little amount of the product.
I already have NYX Bronzer and it’s one of my favorite bronzers. I picked up another shade.
NYX Mineral Stick Foundation.
I picked up a dark shade to use it to contour. Everyone’s using dark shade of foundation to use as contour. It’s actually a good idea. I mean using a dark foundation to contour.
This is so irritating. It always happen to me. I buy something only to realize when I get home that I have it already.
I picked up this eye make up palette and when Rochelle (housegirl) saw it she told me: “mam, meron na ho kayo nyan.” When I heard her say that I wanted to kick myself.
I went to my make up drawer and true enough I have the exact palette. I will have to go back and have this change to something else.
NYX Butt Naked Turn The Other Cheek Collection. It has 15 eye shadows, 4 blushes, and 3 illuminators
NYX Nude On Nude. I think they copied Bobbi Brown. Bobbi Brown has a “Nude On Nude” palette too.
It has 20 eye shadows and 10 lip glosses.I picked up their stippling brush. I am always in need of brushes and I use stippling brush all the time. Stippling brush is one of my favorite brushes. It gives you an air brush finish. That’s why I need back ups.
I had a meeting earlier. This is what I wore.
