NYX Haul and Swatches


This haul contains all the things I’ve purchased from NYX Cosmetics recently.

NYX released many new products for Spring 2015. They are all permanent (I think) and many of them caught my attention. This haul also contains things that NYX has had in their line for a while that I wanted.

The new products they released that I bought are their Highlight & Contour Pro Palette, one of the Prismatic eyeshadows, one of their Tame & Frame brow pomades, and 4 of the Intense Butter Glosses. Things I purchased from them that have been around for a while are their Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer, a nail polish, an Extra Creamy Round Lipstick, and one of their Roll-On Shimmers. I was also sent free lip liners in Nectar and Earth Tone (Thanks NYX)!

I was super excited to see NYX release a contour and highlighting palette. Swatched, they give pretty decent color payoff.


The Angel Veil primer is an older product from NYX, but they recently packaged it in a jumbo sized 2 ounce bottle which is what I purchased.

I think it makes my makeup last longer and feels so lightweight in the skin. Many people say it’s a dupe for the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, which is  $52 for 1 ounce and $72 for 2 ounces. I have not used the Hourglass primer so I can’t confirm that, but when I heard many people claim that this primer was comparable I was pretty much sold!

The 4 glosses I bought are in the colors Napolean, Orangesicle, Banana Split, and Black Cherry Tart. Below are swatches of them in that order.

The Prismatic shadow I bought is in the shade Mermaid and the Roll On Shimmer is in the color Salmon (very aquatic names).

I purchased a lipstick in the color Fig. Here it is swatched next to the two free lip liners (Nectar and Earth Tone).

The last few things I purchased are the Tame & Frame Brow Pomade in Espresso and the Girls Nail Polish in the color Lapis.


The only things I’ve really demoed from this haul are the contour palette, the Angel Veil primer, and the brow pomade. I think the contour palette is pretty good. The primer works so well, and I am OBSESSED with the brow pomade.

I purchased all of these from the NYX website and actually got some awesome deals on everything since I used coupons and a gift card (which NYX sent me for buying the contour palette).

I recommend you guys check out the new NYX items if you’re in Ulta or shopping on NYX’s website. NYX is quickly becoming one of my favorite drugstore brands!
