Jumbo Pencil in Baby Blue & Yellow - $4.50
Rouge Cream Blush in Orange - $6.50
Concealer in a Jar in Tan - $5.50
Slim Lip Pencils in Bloom, Orange, Rose & Pale Pink - $3.50

Rouge Cream Blush/Blended



[l-r] Pale Pink, Rose, Orange, Bloom


Remember that whole NYX debacle? Yeah. Well, I don't haha.
I wasn't interested in the whole "scandal" that a lot made it up to be because frankly at the end of the day, it's just makeup and the company is able to run it however they want. I'm just happy I got a good discount off of it anyways, something is better than nothing! The only thing I am mad about is me not getting more items - I was strickly in a under $20 budget and did well with only spending $18 (free shipping was included).

I went to Ulta the week after I got my haul and big mistake, I swatched their glitter and liquid liners and cursed at myself for not getting these. I wish there was a database too for all swatches because I would have def bought more lip liners and lipsticks if I had more accurate swatches. Google can only do so much.

Slim Lip Pencils
Pale Pink - a nude shade with very light pink undertone
Rose - a pastel pink, lightly bright
Orange - deep shade of orange, at times looks orange-red
Bloom - fuchsia/berry

Rouge Cream Blush in Orange
I actually liked the feeling of this and it's similar to MAC's cream blushes, not sure about wear time. Very light and easy to apply. It can dub as a lip gloss if need be too.

Look out for a NYX Lip Liner Swatch Post soon - will include all that I own in my collection.

How did you end up in the Sale?

  1. I remember that "debacle" because I was more mad they wouldn't even ship to Hawaii than I was that their sale never happened lol...

    Anyway, cute haul and swatches. I got some Jumbo Lip Pencils on CherryCulture's sale but kinda wish I'd snagged 1-2 of the slim ones too.

  4. I get better deals on Cherry Culture - I never ever buy from the NYX site, not even with the 30% off pro discount. NYX thinks too highly of themselves, lol!
    You got great items though, and I agree - we need more swatches out in the beauty world :)

  7. Oooh I've been looking for an orange lipliner for a while! The cream blush also looks like it's up my alley :)

    I was really disgusted with their behaviour regarding the sale at first, but I'm kinda over it. I didn't attempt to participate in the sale so I suppose I'd feel stronger if I had.

  8. @ Rai - Lmao! Right?! Doing too much, it's not like it's a car or house.

    @Krystal - I've only done CC a few times, still over priced guess its not worth it til I see a good discount.

    @IBP - UGH! LUCKY!! I always see them at mines but they're so pricey.

    @Eve - I'll def get them on the next sale :)

    @SS - get the orange, but I just ordered coral, I think it looks more of a orange on swatches Ive seen. theyre cheap so just get both haha
