A couple of weeks ago I took part in a twitter party hosted by NYX & Tattooed Tea Lady, where we all shared our from desk to disco tips. It was so much fun hearing how everyone takes their makeup from day to night. I like to add a bold lipstick. Never fails to glam up a look & that way you can leave the eye quite neutral. I also curl my lashes & add lashings of Mascara.
It was to welcome NYX Cosmetics to selected NEXT stores & also learn about their makeup and products that would glam up our party make up. If you search the hashtag #NYXinNEXT on twitter you can read back through our tips & tricks
I was fortunate enough to win a jam packed NYX goodie bag. So I thought I’d share with you all the gorgeous products.
I love what NYX sent me, so very generous, I can’t wait to try everything. That Mega Shine Lip Gloss has Christmas written all over it. Have you used any NYX products? I’d love to hear what other products you’d recommend.
Whilst I was in Tesco, super late at night picking up paper I saw the new Vivo stand with quite a few new products on and I was drawn to this palette. It was £3.00 and you get 12 shadows. I need another neutral palette like I need a hole in the head. But I thought this would be great for travelling as its compact and really slim.
The colours are really intense and pigmented. Not what you would expect for the price. They are a little powdery but nothing you cant tap off. As you can see from the back of the palette all the shades are named which is nice as often lesser expensive brands tend to number their colours and I don’t like that. I like them to have names.
For £3.00 you get a lovely range of colours and finishes. There are 3 matte colours and the rest have an almost frost finish to them, they’re really pretty. I found they blended well if you take your time and work them – but you get a lovely finish and many of these shades can create a smokey eye. As I said the colours are really pigmented.

I think my favourite colours from this Unprotected Palette are Engage and Adore – but they are all nice. Its great to see a Drugstore palette with matte shades. I’m really impressed with the quality of the shadows. They are quite creamy and rich, you get 8.4g of product for £3 which is really great value.
Vivo have a really good range of products int their collection, I already love using their Brow palette and their baked blushes. Their range is available in larger Tesco Stores and online at vivocosmetics.co.uk if you have’t already you should check them out they are always doing great deals.
