I want to start a new serie of posts about makeup since I am trying a lot of new things now that I live in Finland. It is called ” Budget Beauty Loves ” and I will review the brands and products I use after I have tried them. They have to gather two major points : good quality and be budget friendly !
Beauty products are very different here and I discovered a makeup brand we didn’t have in France when I was living there : NYX. I don’t know how to pronounce it so I guess it is a good thing you are reading !
I love this brand for so many reasons : it is budget friendly, they have a crazy range of everything, and the shades palettes are awesome ! Every shade you want … name it, they have it !
I have tried mostly lipsticks until now and a dark circle concealer.
As I already mentionned here, I am obsessed with the matte lipstick trend. From NYX, I am using right now their ” Mat Rouge à Lèvres ” in Perfect Red ; and I also like the color Alabama. So I made a quick collage for you to see the difference ! Alabama is a little bit darker than Perfect Red.
I also use a lot the ” Soft Matte Lip Cream “, in red shade Alabama, and a kind of dusty rose called ” Cannes ” for the days I want to be more casual . These two are my real favorites ! But they do make my lips a bit dry so don’t forget to put some lipbalm !
I have a hard time with the dark circles under my eyes and I really don’t even know why they are here ! But covering them with makeup is a serious task ! My skin is very dry, so every time i put some concealer on, I end up with visible ”wrinkles”. Not so pretty !
So, I decided to give the ” Dark Circle Concealer ”a try. I have it in 01 Fair and it is really … fair ! so I will take one shade darker next time but it definitely does the job.
I am planning on trying new colors of lipsticks and also their foundations. I would love to do a ”total NYX face” look someday !
Let me know what you think !
