NYX Professional Makeup is Coming to Debenhams?!*

Can anyone else remember the days when we could only dream of having easy access to NYX Professional Makeup? Now it’s much easier to get a hold of, and none other than Debenhams will be stocking it too, but that is not it, Debenhams will also be stocking an exclusive contour palette. Yes that’s right NYX Professional Makeup are releasing a contour palette (which is gorgeous by the way). That you can only get in Debenhams.

Debenhams kindly sent me over a bundle of their best sellers for me to try, and share my thoughts with you. I personally love NYX Professional Makeup. The soft matte lip creams are a classic, but I’ve found a new love with highlighters and eye shadows.

Everything is available now, on the Debenhams website, and I’ll leave links to everything for you to have a nosey. I have swatched everything too, so you can get an idea of what it all looks like, so a very picture heavy post is on the way.

Ultimate Cool Neutrals Eye Shadow Palette

I will admit that cool tones are not my usually my thing, but after playing around with this palette I fell in love. It’s a stunning palette and I think the colours are perfect for the colder seasons and very Autumn appropriate, especially for those who don’t like wearing reds or oranges. The colour that stands out the most in this palette is definitely the bottom right purple shade. When I used this palette I didn’t get any fall out, and I find the shades to be pigmented and they blend really easily. I was really surprised with just how well they blend out and blend together.

Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette

I know a lot of people rave about this, so I was so excited to receive it, it contains seven highlighters and out of those I think there’s only one that’s too dark, and that’s the middle one on the bottom, but I can pass it off as an eye shadow so that’s fine. I love using the two others on the bottom mixed together, as I like a darker gold/ champagne and that is what they give.If you like strong highlight then this is for you, I got a really strong glow with this, so subtle lovers be ware.

Shine Killer

As soon as I saw this I wasn’t sure if it would be for me, considering I have dry skin and this is quite clearly aimed at those with oily skin, as I don’t have any shine to kill. Shine Killer is clear and contains silicone. Once applied this left my skin feeling smooth and it does dry quickly, but it doesn’t disappear. My foundation went on smoothly over this, and lasted a good few hours.

Pore Filler

This primer is silicone based too, which is great for oily skin. It also has a peach tint to it, which blended perfectly with my skin tone. Once applied it leaves your skin smooth and matte, with pores reduced. This did really help with my foundation and my pores become more apparent after around five hours of wear.

Butter Gloss | Strawberry Parfait

These glosses are my ultimate favourites, if you are looking for a gloss these ones are the way to go. This is my first time trying Strawberry Parfait and I can see how it got its name, as it is a bright pink, but once applied it’s a pretty wash of colour. These glosses aren’t sticky and apply really easily.

Soft Matte Lip Cream | Budapest

As soon as I saw this colour I knew I would love it. I can’t believe I didn’t try it earlier. Budapest is gorgeous deep red-purple berry colour which is perfect for Autumn/ Winter. The soft matte lip creams have such a great formula it’s not too drying, but it does dry down. I find these need re-applying after eating and drinking, but that’s not too big of a deal when they’re so comfortable.

Lip Lingerie | Exotic

I cannot tell you how happy I was to receive this! I bought this a while ago, and I really like the colour, but I managed to lose it.  Before applying this I like to apply a lip balm, as it can be a little drying. This means it lasts longer than the soft matte lip creams. This is a gorgeous colour for Autumn and Winter, as it’s very similar to Budapest.

Liquid Suede | Downtown Beauty

I was a little shocked by this, as it is a pure brown. I like the colour, but I’m not brave enough to wear it out. This is because it’s a little out of my comfort zone. The formula is something in between the lip Lingerie and the Soft Matte lip cream.

Top to Bottom: Strawberry Parfait, Budapest, Exotic and Downtown Beauty

Contour Initiative Warm Zone Eye and Face Sculpting Palette

I definitely saved the best for last. This little beauty is the exclusive palette that you can only get in Debenhams. You get a blush, two highlighters and six eye shadows. Contrary to my blog name, I’m not the biggest fan of blush, but this is such a gorgeous colour. I am in love with both of the highlighters, these colours are pigmented and blinding.

These shadows are definitely more up my street, as I love a warm look. The colours are great for Autumn and Winter too, as they contain the typical reds/ coppers. I found the eye shadow lasted all day, and it’s really pigmented and blends really easily too. I didn’t suffer any fallout either.

Eyeshadow Swatches

Highlighter and Blush Swatches

That is everything I was kindly sent to me. A huge thank you to Debenhams, as everything is amazing! I’m excited to be able to get NYX Professional Makeup in store. I’m definitely going to get more eye shadow palettes as I really love the formula!

    NYX is so good for drugstore makeup! They’re my favorite drugstore brand for sure, and I love how they have all kinds of bright eye and lip makeup, which is something I think is lacking in drugstore makeup. Their butter glosses are so nice, my favorite is creme brulee!

    Lucky you to be the recipient of all these goodies! I remember the hype when NYX first began to be stocked in UK drugstores, so I can only imagine the excitment of Debenhams getting their professional range! The ultimate cool neutrals palette is right up my street, it’s just pigmented enough to give a natural glow, which I adore! I’m also very keen to try out the lip lingerie! Thanks for sharing these gorgeous products!
