NYX haul and NOTD

Hey guys, another haul comin' for ya!

I've been waiting for these NYX items since FOREVEEEEEER, so I'm super excited that they finally arrived in the mail this morning \(^o^)/ *does victory dance*

I'm not gonna show you all the items, as I bought some stuff besides this for the giveaway AND some things for a swap - so you'll have to settle with these things until I get the giveaway up on here : P (... big surprise, the card's not working yet.. so I can't purchase the last things : ( boo!)

ANYWAY.. to the items!

Firstly I got 6 lipsticks. I tried to search for swatches online to get the best ones for either neutral, nude or soft pink lips. I'm keeping three of the lipsticks for myself - just to try out.

From left to right: Tea Rose, Power and Fig

Other lippies I got are still going to remain a big fat secret : P Haha, I'm truly sorry about the stupid giveaway-delay! I'm trying heeeere : ( I haven't tried these out yet, tho. And of course (cause I'm a dork) I accidentally poked one of the lippies I'm giving away! WHAT A FOOL I AM! Dammit.. I'm really sorry, but I promis y'all that I didn't use it or anything. I'd never do that..

Champagne & Caviar and Versus


These ones I'm really excited about. I did a quick swatch of some of the colors for you. Please do keep in mind that I'm using my own, lame camera, cause the focus on it is much better than the other camera that I'm borrowing from my gf. But the flash is retarded -_-" Anyway.. The colors are SUPER soft, silky and have great pigmentation so far. I'll be doing some looks with these to show you guys later, so look out for that!

Eggplan , TS3 trio, Iced Mocha

Next up are some eyeshadows. I got three trios in total (so be excited to see the other two : D ) and this one is called 'Nude, Taupe, Dark Brown' (aka. TS03). I'm really liking this one.. The single eyeshadows are called 'Iced Mocha' (also known as the probably most widely known dupe for MAC's Satin Taupe) and 'Eggplant'. I thought Eggplant was gonna be all matte, but it has this AMAZING metally finish with a hint of sparkle to it. SOOO effin' beautiful! But of course my camera makes the shadows look a bit weird. lol. I promise to do a look with these as well - I'm so excited to try out Eggplant. Don't you just LOVE it when you're pleasantly surprised with an online order? (elf could learn something from NYX, lol)


I got two of the Mega Shine lipglosses. This one's in Sweetheart - the other one's a secret. HAHAA (y'all be hatin' on me already for this, haha).. I LOVE this color. So nude, a hint of pinkness-taupe, a hint of sparkle, a hint of peachy undertones - so pretty! Love it!

But yeah.. That's it for the haul - at least of the stuff that I'm gonna show you : P haha.. Sorry, I'll stop now.


To end this, here's my NOTD. I'm wearing the Color Club Soft As Cashmere.. The color is SOOO pretty (even the swatch I showed you guys a while back made it look so darn pretty) - but I'm a bit disappointed.. It shows up very gray in the photo, but it's a bit more brown than that. The color itself is amazing, but it's annoying to put on. It's a very liquid consistency, and it dries very.. soft. As in.. the nail polish is very soft. It takes NOTHING to nick it, which really sucks : ( But it's pretty overall.. Sorry for the retarded photo. lol. My fingers look so fat.

Anyway, that's it for today guys..
I'll try to gather the giveaway items as fast as I can : D

Love y'all

  4. to be honest, the international students i know in Denmark and I myself are a bit envious of the status of students/or danes XD simply because you guys have a pretty reliable government and a socialist system that ACTUALLY WORKS...and people are quite equal (like no job hierarchy)...you get respected even if you're a waiter in a restaurant. Plus, you guys can study for free for the entire life...and uni. students get subsidized (pocket money) every month!

    I'd rather live the life of a happy Dane. Seriously, the people in Asia (or in Hong Kong especially), they have no idea how to enjoy life. They work 10+ hours per day and often have to work extra-hours. But what we earn aren't leading us to anywhere, we worry about getting old without support from the govt, there's huge gap between rich and poor ...etc :P i guess you'd probably be bored to read up to here XD but I'd go visit Denmark again ANYTIME!!

  5. What a great haul you got! The es palettes look so pretty. We have NYX where I live too but the selection is small and definitely don't carry the huge palettes that you got; mostly just shimmers and pigments and lipsticks. Lucky you! Cant wait to see a look^^

  7. OOo great haul! I love that the applicator of the lip gloss is angled so you can get the most product out; they should make all lip glosses like that :D
