When it comes to cosmetics I have no loyalty so when I’m introduced to a new one I will follow.
My new love is for NYX Cosmetics (thanks Mrs. Boorman!) they make professional cosmetics but at a reasonable price (ok go on!). So far I’ve tried the Doll Eye Long Lash Mascara, the Jumbo Eye Pencil (black bean) and the White/Grey/Black Eye Shadow Trio.
Eyeliner and I go way back (we’ve be in love since I was 11) so naturally the Jumbo Eye Pencil is my new best friend, it’s easy to apply (it’s a crayon!) and soft enough that you can smudge it a bit. The mascara really lengthens the lashes, but because I like volume I need to apply a lot. If you’re into the smokey eye effect the Eye Shadow Trio is where it’s at, you’ve got all the colours to make the look really fierce (grrr!).
I’m still experimenting, but I think I’ll be investing in more of their products. That is until the next brand comes along…
