I originally wanted to put in an order for mainly eyeshadows and jumbo eye pencils but instead I opted for a bit of variety. I chose one jumbo eye pencil in 'Strawberry Milk' which is a pretty, slightly shimmery pastel pink shade which looks great worn alone over the entire lid. The other eyeshadow I chose was an eyeshadow in 'Aloha' a lovely golden taupe colour which looks amazing alone or paired with a light brown colour in the corner of the eye. I am becoming quite a fan of blushes recently so of course I picked up a blush in 'Peach' which although it looks quite bright in person its actually quite a pale, build-able colour which looks really natural on the skin.
Like most people I am a sucker for lipsticks and glosses so of course they would be added to the basket. First up is the standard Nyx circular lipstick in 'Athena' It is a really pretty pink lipstick with a slight shimmer in it, I would say its more of a night out lipstick than an every day wear one due to the shimmer however, still a lovely shade. The Nyx lipgloss in 'Pink Frost' seems to be a token gloss around the beauty community and I can see why. This is a creamy, slight shimmer, pink gloss that gives lovely colour to the lips. Thankfully it isn't a sticky gloss so no need to worry about your lips sticking together or stray hairs getting caught up in it.
I have only ever used ELF's skin coloured eye primer to prime my eyes before but when I spotted this on the Nyx website I figured it would make a nice change. I believe this is the pearl white version, it also comes in skin colour and just white, and I am a huge fan of this. The white pearl colour really brings out the eyeshadow colours on the lid and makes them more prominent. You only need the smallest amount to do both eyes so the small pot will last forever!
