If you read my November Love List, you would have read that, overall, I was loving the brand NYX. Although I have only 2 of their products, I have already added more to my christmas list. They are a brand, that I personally think is underrated. They have an abudance of products with plentiful of shades. Nyx Cosmetics are now accessible from Boots and FeelUnique. The quality of their products astonishingly resemble high-end and better yet, the price's are justifiable and affordable.

NYX 3 C Palette - Conceal, Correct and Contour £10:  After seeing a great quantity of discussion on this product, curiosity led me to purchase it. I did so in the shade medium. I have never utilised creams to contour before so I was expecting some hard grafting with this product. However, there was no need. The product is easily blended and if anything you can create finer and more precise lines. As the product labels, it comes with 2 shades for 3 different uses: Conceal, Correct and Contour. There is a pink shade which I have found accompanied with the very yellow shade (two at the bottom) work so well for correcting, especially under the eyes for dark circles. I would say the coverage is of a medium base and is long wear. Leaving the house in the morning and returning in the evening, the product has not shifted at all. I am an extensive user of the Anastasia Beverly Hills powder contour kit but I would say that NYX coverage lasts longer and is easier to apply.

NYX Micro Brow Pencil - Ash Brown and Brunette £7: As you can see I bought two different shades in the Brow pencil and, at first, this was because I was unsure of the colour I would need. I originally have been using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Medium Brown but I have found the colour is still way to dark for me. So, unwilling to make the same mistake again, I thought it best to buy two shades. The perfect shade is actually Ash brown. Brunette has a warm tone to it which I feel is better on the inner corner of the brow for a lighter brow. But Ash Brown is still as good for doing such. But, let me just tell you something! I have seen copious amounts of people relating this brow pencil to Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz and I can safely say it is of the same quality. Again, I'm impressed with another NYX product. The pencil has the same brush on the end to brush the product through. The key to this product is to be light handed. It is extremely pigmented so be weary of using a light touch.

LA Girl Pro Conceal- Beautiful Bronze £2-3 : So everyone may not be as aware of this brand but I came to know of it by the blogger Sarah Ashcroft. She really rates this product for contouring. It comes in a  small tube with a brush so it is easily applied. She uses the colour 'Beautiful Bronze' which I would say is perfect for medium toned skin. However, as this is a product from the US, you can only purchase it on Amazon and the delivery does take up to two weeks. Another problem with this product is, once applied to the face, you have to move quickly. If I was to relate it to another product I would say it is a similar consistency as a lip tint. If you don't move fast, you are gonna end up with lines everywhere as it does not blend well. I'm still experimenting with this product and I'm not 100% satisfied. I have noticed Sarah Ashcroft uses a wet Beauty Blender to blend the product into the skin. So I have got Beauty Blenders on the Christmas list and will wait to further experiment with the product. However, overall I would not use this as often as I use the NYX Palette or my trusty Anastasia Beverly Hills Palette. Here's the link to the product- http://goo.gl/UAAJTJ
