Another of my fabulous Christmas presents was the jam-packed Wanderlust advent calendar from Nyx.
Regular readers will know how much I love Nyx, their cosmetics are gorgeous and highly pigmented at an absolute bargain price. What’s not to love? I’ve been mad about their Soft Matte Lip Creme’s for a long time, but I’ve never been able to find all the shades I wanted so I was delighted to find a selection of miniature lip cremes in this giftset, plus a whole range of the complementing eyeshadows!
Although this is technically an advent calendar for makeup lovers, this was one of my Christmas presents so I got to open every single door on Christmas morning… Yay!
I’ve already blogged about Nyx eyeshadow and lip creme so today I just want to run through the colours contained in this calendar – some of the ones I’ve wanted to get my hands on for so long as well as some old favourites that are now in perfect travel sized tubes.
From top to bottom: Stockholm, Cannes, Milan, Prague, Manila, Morocco, Addis Ababa, Seoul, Monte Carlo, Copenhagen and Transylvania.
Sadly I forgot to include Rome in the above picture but I wore it on Christmas day and it’s a gorgeous natural shade with a hint of red that is easily wearable day or night (below left)
Nyx soft matte lip cremes are rich in pigment and long-lasting without drying out your lips so these are among my ultimate favourites.
