NYX Haul!! (mainly)

I happened to come across a several large bins full of marked down NYX Chrome eyeshadow's recently and couldn't help but pick up a few, you know, for the road....

Top Row Left to Right: Apricot, Sunny Day, Lagoon
Middle Row Left to Right: Violet, Green, Yellow, Ocean Blue, KeyLime
Bottom Row Left to Right: Chaotic, Space, Orange  

Left to Right: Apricot, Sunny Day, Orange, *Sun Kissed*

Feenix Cosmetics in Sun Kissed
*Sun Kissed is by a brand called Feenix Mineral Cosmetics, I can't find too much information on them, I think they are primarily carried via Paragon Pharmacy, but I will have to investigate further. I am quite surprised at the quality of this product, it was slightly more expensive than the NYX but as you can see it does have a great colour payoff. I also spotted some matte colours as well that I might just go pick up and give a try, if they can do matte well, they can do anything. I'll keep you posted.

Left to Right: Violet, Space, Chaotic, Ocean Blue, Lagoon
Left to Right: Lagoon, Green, Yellow, Apricot

 (phew! Swatching is hard work!) These were all taken with a flash and without primer. I think I will most likely foil these, as I have hooded eyes and I don't want them to crease. I have to say that these shadows are more pale than the picture is presenting, with the flash they look more like how they are when they have been foiled.

NYX Eyeshadow's in Wild Flower and My Favorite Color

My Favorite Color and Wild Flower

I have to say that I really like Wild Flower, it is smooth and pigmented with frost finish, while My Favorite Color has all of those aspects except for the gianormous chunks of glitter that end up as fallout on my cheeks when I wear it. Which is surprising because I know this is some people's favorite color....

 New HG makeup remover! EVERYONE has been talking about this and I think it is fantastic.

 You get such a big bottle! I hate having to buy makeup remover all the time, and this is nice and light. It feels like water, it does a great job removing makeup and you don't have to rinse your face after you use it (if you don't want to that is). This is a repurchase for me, the first bottle I bought was the smaller one, 250mL, and it lasted me 3 months! So totally worth the price. Awesomeness, check it out!

 Lastly, I saw this lipstick on haul by Sokolum79 on YouTube, and on a whim I bought it. It was super cheap, 2$ or something like that, great colour, really creamy. Pow!
