NYX SPRING♥

Hello everyone! How are you? Doesn't it feel good finally being able to relax a bit after a terrible week? Sure does for me! Ok, this week wasn't entirely awful, because Nyx came to cheer me up!
Most of you probably know NYX. If not, it's an affordable makeup brand widely loved for the quality and variety it offers in a good price. The people from Nyx here in Greece were kind enough to send me some products to try out. I was so excited! I got a palette, a lipstick and a lip liner.
"Spring Fling" palette is seriously so cute. It has a magnetic closure and a little drawer that opens with a pink ribbon. The whole look of it just makes me want to wear my spring clothes even though it's raining outside. It comes with 12 eyeshadows, 2 blushes and 2 lipglosses. The glosses are pretty sheer and great to put on over lipsticks and the blushes are buildable and have a nice finish.
The colors of the eyeshadows kinda scared me at first. If you know me, I usually go for either grey or brown eyeshadows, so this palette sure was a challenge. Although, when I tried them, the colors were much more pastel and light. This makes them easier to wear but, on the other hand, you need to to add at least 2 coats for the color to show off well. Maybe it's because my skin is so very light. But the quality is good and if you use your fingers the result is more pigmented. Wait for an upcoming tutorial using these adorable colors^*
The lipstick is called "Big Cherry" and it is a cherry red. I didn't quite realise the term "butter lipstick" until I swatched it. It's so soft! The color payoff here is great but you can also get a more sheer result if you use a lip brush.
The liner is "Edge Pink" and it's truly a bold hot pink with a bit of shimmer. It's not hard or dry on the lips and it stays on for long. 
I thought I should mix these two and I got this lovely color♥
I really liked all the things they sent me and I really hope they'll send me more in the future. As I mentioned, I will definitely do some tutorials with these products

  1. The blushes and lipstick look gorgeous! And I feel you on the eyeshadow colours – pastels can be tricky to pull off.
