To continue the new year theme, I figured it was time to experiment with some new makeup!

I’ve never tried NYX makeup before, but have seen loads of rave reviews from other bloggers so am excited to give it a go! And I’ve only ever used Barry M nail polishes before, so am looking forward to seeing how their makeup measures up!

From left to right:

NYX Studio Perfect Photo Loving Primer – Green

I have been intrigued about the theory of green products combating redness for a while, and am looking forward to testing the theory with this primer!

NYX Lip Primer – Light

I am used to facial primers, but have never used a primer specifically for lips! I’m excited to see if it makes a difference, or whether it’s an unnecessary investment!

Barry M Flawless Chisel Cheeks Countour Kit

I am a total contouring virgin, and am excited to see if I can imitate Kimmy K’s defined cheekbones (or to see if I end up looking like a total clown..! 🙈)

NYX Baked Blush + Illuminator + Bronzer – Foreplay

I have had the same blusher – an Estée Lauder number – for almost 6 years, and I swear by it! However unfortunately it didn’t quite survive being dragged around Europe over Christmas so I’m going to give this cheaper alternative a go to see how it measures up!

NYX Eyebrow Pencil – Auburn

As well as being a contouring virgin, I am also useless with my eyebrows! They are really fair, and are normally covered by my bangs so don’t usually see the light of day! However, in a bid to get Cara-esque brows they have recently been shaped by my friend Verity, and next on the agenda is to make them visible!

NYX Matte Lipstick – Siren

I’ve seen loads of reviews saying NYX lipsticks are just as good as their high-end rivals, and I’m excited to see if this is true! Siren is a lovely deep purple colour, perfect for winter!

NYX Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray

Setting spray is an item that has long been missing from my makeup bag! This one has fab reviews, so I’m looking forward to seeing if it does what it says on the tin!

Look out for reviews of all of these products throughout this week!
