IMATS Spotlight: NYX Haul! :)

Happy Thursday!

This week has been pretty uneventful for me, so I thought I'd bring a little cheer and excitement here on my blog by sharing with you guys the stuff I got from NYX at IMATS Los Angeles. :)




I only have these two photos of the NYX booth because I got so excited and busy browsing through their products, haha! But it's okay because I got the stuff I've been wanting/ needing, yay!!! ;)

Let's get on with my NYX haul? :)

1772

I got 6 items, and with the super affordable and special IMATS prices, my total came up to about $17-$18 (sorry, I can't remember the exact price!). Total bargain though, right?! :D

Here are the stuff I got:

194

- 3 lip liner pencils
- concealer
- cream blush
- lipstick

1. SLIM LIP PENCIL -- Slim, trim but never prim, our lip pencils come in 60 dashing shades — from auburn to orange and traffic-stopping red. The buttery, long-wearing lip liner formula goes on easily and resists bleeding. 
Available in 60 shades.



Price: $3.50



The colors I got are: Pumpkin (852), Hot Red (817), and Bloom (836).

I got Pumpkin to pair with the NYX lipstick I got, Hot Red for my Revlon True Red lipstick, and Bloom for my CoverGirl Blast Flipstick. :)

2. ROUGE CREAM BLUSH -- More delicious than peaches and cream? We like to think so. Our velvety smooth mineral Rouge Cream Blush offers a sheer wash of radiant color. The glorious payoff is dewy, sultry, and long-lasting. Available in 12 shades.



Price: $6.75

I got it in Glow -- I love love love it!
It's creamy and so easy to apply. Plus, it gives me a beautiful, natural-looking glow (yes, Glow makes you glow, haha!). ;)

3. CONCEALER JAR -- Our Concealer Jars are back and ready to hide the villains of dark circles and blemishes stronger than ever! We supply concealers in all shades with an improved formula providing long-lasting full coverage. A moisture-rich, emollient formula designed to conceal discoloration, dark circles, and blemishes. Applied with a brush, the concentrated concealer goes on like a dream.



Price: $5.50

I got it in Beige (CJ04).
I have yet to use it, but Carrie from Read My Life As Carrie got the exact same thing and she is raving about it!
She said it's amazing, so I am super excited to try it out! :)

4. ROUND LIPSTICK -- NYX Round Lipstick is our classic lipstick for all-year round. The mineral-based emollient formula offers a beautiful velvet texture, saturated color, and it resists wear and smudging. It’s your go-to lipstick. From Pure Nude to Pink Lyric to Chic Red, Round Lipstick is available in a jaw-dropping 144 shades.



Price: $4

I got it in Sunflower, but there are 143 other shades to choose from, so you can bet I am definitely going to buy more! ;)

I'm excited to attend the next IMATS LA because I am gonna be buying more NYX products, haha!
Their special IMATS prices are unbeatable!

I also recently got a new powder blush and one of their amazing soft matte lip creams online -- I will be sharing those with you guys on a separate post. I will also be reviewing these items separately, so please stay tuned for that! :D

Are you a NYX fan?
Have you used any of these products before? 
What other NYX products would you recommend I try?

I hope you are all having a lovely Thursday -- the weekend is almost here, yay! ;)

  13. I have not been overly impressed with NYX. I have bought many things and have been disappointed. Some of their lipsticks are too thin and slippery in formula. The glosses are very sheer and fade so quickly. I do like the jumbo pencils, blushes, pigments, and lip pencils. :)

  18. I have been wanting to go to IMATS for the longest time!!! I have heard lots of great things about NYX but I haven't tried anything from this brand before since it's not very accessible where I live. That blush looks very pretty!!
