NYX Haul: Round Two

So this is what happens when makeup junkies go on a spree. They buy, they like, they buy some more. And they aren't exactly sure when to stop.

Which pretty much sums up Round Two of my NYX hauls.

Shortly after I got my NYX Haul: Round One, I just had to get more? It isn't a question. It's a statement. So read on to see the breakdown and lippie swatches.

Major blush glut (l-r): (top row) Mosaic Powder in Peachy, Dare, Spice and Plummy, and (bottom row) Mocha (which is so not Mocha) and Angel.

No, four mosaics and two blushers is not an overkill. Because Blush Queen said so.

Eyeshadow trios (l-r): Baby Pink/Cotton Candy/Spring Flower, Aquamarine, and Copper/Rust/Bronze. So pretty no? I bought these based on my good experience with my earlier trios. They do not disappoint! Although Baby Pink is kinda sheer.

Lippies (l-r): Round lipsticks in Iris, Eros, and Black Label lipsticks in India and Fire. After missing out on the lippies in the last haul, I knew I had to try them out this time. Black label gives you a more serious, luxe touch, while the Round Lipsticks look fun. I wanted Pumpkin Pie too, but they were sold out when I ordered. =(

(l-r): Iris, Eros, India and Fire. Of the four, I can wear Iris and Fire with ease. The other two need a little more work to wear them. Eros is slightly scary for me still, so I only dab it on instead of swiping it. And surprisingly, India is a rather bubblegum pink lipstick. Not a shade of lipstick I'm used to wearing. So we'll see how it goes.

So there you go folks. What would you say if I said there might be a Round Three on the way?

*grin*

I hope you like the copper/rust/bronze trio as much as I do! Ahh... angel looks very pretty but I was wondering if it would look good on warmer skins. if you happen to get a picture of you wearing the blush, show me yeah? :D Iris is a pretty color! It looks lip-glossy though. pretty sheer. is it? how does the black label compare to the round lippies?

haha. so many questions. sorry!

ParisB said...

Nope not overkill for 4 Mosiacs and 2 blushes indeed! But I do feel a threat to the throne hehe... enjoy your new goodies

Jenn said...

I DO think that there will be a round 3!! Hehehe...

gosh you're really tempting me to get a couple of stuff from NYX!! >.< Esp. the blushes and lippies!!

Eli said...

I think my eyes just popped out of my head when I saw the Mosaics.

Like Connie, how does the black label compare to the normal lippies?

Jenn said...

Nikki: Thanks girl. Yes, I hope I do have more time to play with my makeup. But I'm sure there will be FOTDs along the way. =)

Connie: I haven't had time to really play with the trios yet but I'm loving the looks of it. And yes, I saw your FOTD using copper. Lovely! Will remember to show you when I have a pic using Angel.

Connie & Eli: LOL. I hope you popped them back in. Anyways, I wrote everything down in this reply. And it got so long I've decided to answer your questions in a separate post which is coming very soon. =P

Jenn: LOL. I hope so too. =) *tee hee* They look good, don't they?

Syen said...

Paris: Oops, sorry, missed you out.

Hehehe.. yesh, I agree it's not an overkill. Don't worry, Your Blushness. I have no intention of staging a coup. =P And I'm certainly enjoying my new goodies! =)

Syen said...

Jenn: OOOH! Thanks Jenn!!! =)

Eli said...

I just got my NYX haul today! 3 lippies, a gloss and a concealer. I <3 Except the concealer. It's a shade off. *sigh*

Syen said...

Eli: Yay! Hope you're having fun with the new goodies.

Too bad about the concealer though. Aiks. A shade too light or too dark?

Anonymous said...

oh pls do a review on the nyx mosaic, been thinking of getting them, but unsure what colour is good as a blush or something.

Eli said...

The concealer is a shade too light. But I'll wait until winter hits for my skin to lighten up and see if I can make it work somehow.

kahani said...

Eli: What shade did you get? I was thinking of getting NYX Concealer in Light - think it'll suit me?

Syen said...

Anon: Helloo! Alrightey. Will try to do a review of the Mosaics. But do give me time to try them all out. Goodness knows I have so many to play with. LOL.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you around again soon! =)

Eli said...

Kahani: I bought mine in Beige. Hmm, Light might work for you since you are a good 2 shades fairer than me... Could you find any MUA reviews which matched your skin tone?
