L-R: Cranberry, Purple Pleaser, Rosy Raisin, Red Velvet

Next up we've got NYX Rouge Cream Blushes

I caved and bought 2 more NYX Round Lipsticks - bit disappointed but I'm sure I'll find a way to make them work for me. Or maybe I just need to embrace brighter colours...

NYX Sweet Oleander Eye Shadow

NYX Nude on Nude Palette


Swatched without primer - check the lack of pigmentation :(

Lip Colours

Next up, NYX Taupe Blush and Benefit Hoola matte bronzer

Avon Tiger's Eye Quad

  1. Would you recommend the nude on nude palette? :) xx

  2. oooh I like the look of ELF's purple pleaser nail polish. It's a shame the nyx palette hasn't got much pigmentation, I have the smokey look one which I love as it has great pigmentation :) xxx

  3. The ELF stuff looks nice - I like the Cranberry nails especially! x

  4. Hannahh - I've used it once and the pigmentation isn't brilliant and the shadows seem to fade when blending. I'll try it again with a primer and I'll do a review for you :) xx

    Katy - It's pretty :) I nearly got the smokey one, wish I had now! xx

  5. The Bristol Beauty Blog - Cranberry is gorgeous! Look out for my post featuring it tomorrow :) xx

  6. Cranberry looks like its the autumn dark red nail polish I have been looking for! :)

    Love this post!

  7. It's perfect! I have an NOTD featuring it tomorrow :) Thank you! xx

  8. Love the way you put the different shades on your arm, what a cool way to display each product x

  9. Thanks for the swatches, your right about the red velvet not being that snazzy. :)

  10. That's quite alright :) Yeah it's nothing special but nice to have in your collection. I think it looks the same as No 7's Salsa so this is a great cheap dupe for it :) xx

  11. The NYX blushers and lipsticks look so nice! X

  12. The blushers are lovely - not half as scary as they might seem in the pan! The lippies are quite nice too although I think Rose is a bit bright. I think I just need to embrace the brightness! xx

  13. Kim's getting her swatch on ;) I love the look of raspberry truffle, lush! xx

  14. Haha I am indeed! It looks more exciting in the pan then it does on I think =\ xx

  15. Eeek I love Avon, glad to see I'm not the only blogger that uses Avon products :)

    Lots of love,

  16. Same, most of their stuff is pretty good :) xx

  17. Just love the Avon eye quad... I'm really IN brown and nude colors lately :)

  18. Thanks :) Ditto, it's my go to look :) xx
