My New Favourite Brand at Debenhams

Wednesday 20 September 2017

NYX Professional Makeup is one of my favourite affordable brands, their Epic Ink Liner is up there with my all time favourite eyeliners, and I live in their Soft Matte Lip Creams, so I am super excited to announce that they are about to become more accessible than ever, as they are now stocked Debenhams! To celebrate the launch, Debenhams very kindly send me over some of their most popular products to review for you, so lets get started.

Pore Filler and Shine Killer Primers*

I've never really been a primer wearer, my skin is both dry/dehydrated and very sensitive, so I've really struggled to find the right formula, however, I think I may have finally found my perfect match in the form of Pore Filler. This lightweight primer glides onto my skin, leaving it feeling soft and silky, creating a flawless base for my foundation (or at least as close to "flawless" as my skin will ever be). I've been wearing it everyday for a little while now, and so far no breakouts or clogged pores. The second primer I received, Shine Killer, does what it says on the tin, it helps to create a matte base and keeps excess oil at bay. Since I have very little in the way of oil, this primer didn't really do anything for me, but I'm going to keep it for the warmer months when I can be prone to the occasional oily patch.

Butter Gloss - Strawberry Parfait*

As a recent gloss convert, I have fallen in love with the Butter Gloss range, and the shade Strawberry Parfait is one of my favourites. This fuchsia pink looks a little bright and scary in the packaging, but when applied it becomes much less opaque, creating a pretty, everyday wearable pink. I'm also obsessed with the candy floss scent, and have to stop myself from licking it straight off of my lips.

Soft Matte Lip Cream in Budapest*

I have a huge collection of Soft Matte Lip Creams, they're actually one of my favourite liquid lipstick formulas because they don't try out my lips at all. The shade "Budapest" is a perfect autumn berry, which looks beautiful against my slightly tanned skin. I find the Soft Matte Lip Cream range to be so low maintenance and easy to wear, with minimal touchups needed throughout the day. 

Lip Lingerie in Exotic*

I had heard great things about the Lip Lingerie Range, so I was excited to receive one in the shade Exotic, a surprisingly wearable reddish brown. I've found that this one is a little more drying than the Soft Matte Lip Cream, but the lasting power is incredible, and I had no fear of it migrating around my face during the day. Given the choice between the Lip Lingerie and Soft Matte Lip Cream ranges, I would definitely choose the Soft Mattes, but I am still happy to have this shade in my collection, and I'm sure I'll get lots of wear out of it this autumn.

Liquid Suede in Downtown Beauty*

Last up for the lipstick picks we have one from the Liquid Suede range in the shade Downtown Beauty. This shade is definitely not for me. On my lips it comes off as a mud coloured brown, with a strange hint of green, which doesn't flatter my skin tone at all. However, I did a Google image search of this shade, and it looks incredible on those girls, so this is definitely one to swatch on your own skin! I did love the formula of this, I would say it's the least drying of the bunch, so I would feel comfortable wearing it even on a chapped lips day. I'm definitely going to be checking out the rest of the range and picking up a more "me" shade.

Ultimate Shadow Palette in Cool Neutrals*

Now on to the palettes! I was so excited to receive the Cool Neutrals eyeshadow palette, as I don't currently own anything like it. I am generally more of a warm toned kinda girl, but I am always happy to push myself out of my comfort zone and to try new things, and I've actually discovered some shades that work really well for me. I found some of them to be a little bit powdery, but also super pigmented, so I would advise not overloading your brush when you first use it. For the price this palette is incredible, and I'll definitely be adding Warm Neutrals to my collection soon!

Contour Intuitive Eye and Face Sculpting Palette in Jewel Queen*

Containing two highlights, one blush and six eyeshadows, Jewel Queen is incredible value for money. I've fallen in love with the ultra sheeny white highlight shade, which packs a serious punch in the glow department, without a glitter chunk in sight, and also the pink toned highlight which I have been using as a blush topper. The eyeshadows are mostly cool toned, but they sell variations of this same palette with warm shadows which I will also be adding to my Debenhams basket!

Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette*

Last but not least, we have the Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette. By now I'm sure you're aware of my highlight palette addiction, and this one makes the perfect addition to my collection. All of the shades are seriously pigmented, with my favourite being the palest, which luckily comes in a huge pan! For a budget friendly palette it offers an amazing selection of shades, and is comparable to Sleek's Solstice palette (my previous favourite) in terms of value for money. I definitely recommend checking this one out!

So those are a few of the NYX Professional Makeup products now available at Debenhams, will you be adding any to your basket?
