NYX & Essie Haul


This is a haul of numerous items that I have bought in different places. I bought them all in a course of a week and just wanted to share them as well as my thoughts on some of the items.

"pumpkin pie" lip swatch
I purchased a palette and a liptstick off of Amazon from the seller BeautyJoint. The palette is the ten shadow Runway Collection in "Strike A Pose". The lipstick is their round lipsticks in Pumpkin Pie. I was pleased with the lipstick. It's a nice nude with an orange tone. A nice color for everyday. I will wear a neutral lipliner under it since I have pigmented lips. I was kind of disappointed with eye shadow palette. I already own one ("Bohemian Rhapsody") which I love but this one hardly has any pigmentation. Some colors I had to swatch heavily for it to show up.


"real nude" swatch
 "whipped" swatch
I also bought a few NYX items at a beauty supply close to my morning job. I always get excited when I see a store that has NYX because they aren't many in NYC. I purchased 2 of the round glosses in the shades "Real Nude" & "Whipped" as well as a white eyeliner. I've been wanting to try out the round glosses for a while. I really like them! They have good pigmentation and aren't sticky at all. The only thing is that they have a strange pine-sol type smell. It's not a huge deal for me though.

ewww at the sloppy paint job

I also got one of the nail polishes from the Essie holiday collection in the color "School of Hard Rocks". I love it!
