Small Wishlist Haul: NYX, L’Oreal, Maybelline

This week I decided to take the plunge and buy the products I have wanted to try for a long time, The reason I was putting off buying these was 1. because you couldn’t buy NYX in Sligo up until recently and 2.I didn’t really need them but I had to give into all of the hype and try these out.

1. L’Oreal True Match Foundation.
I know I am really late on the bandwagon for this foundation, I cannot say how many people have mentioned this in videos and blog posts, everyone and their mother seem to have used this foundation. This product has been top of my wishlist for a long time now, I bought the concealer a couple of weeks ago from boots in the shade Vanilla and I have been loving that so I thought why not try the foundation. The shade I picked up was N1 Ivory. I wanted W1 but that was sold out so I went with N1 which is similar, I explained the foundation shade system in my previous post so if you are unsure of what I mean by N and W check that out. This foundation is normally €14.99 but Cara pharmacy currently have an in store offer for 33% off this which meant it was only €10.99. I haven’t yet tried this but I will be sure to let you all know once I do.



2. Maybelline Big Eyes Mascara.
This product is another one that has been on my wishlist for a while now, I love Maybelline mascaras and I recently ran out of my Go Extreme Colossal Volum’ mascara so I saw this one and picked it up. The interesting thing about this mascara is that it has a wand for your lower lashes which I think is a great idea because I hate applying mascara to my bottom lashes with a big wand that spreads the product all over your under eye area. This mascara is usually €10.99 but there was 33% off this one in store in Cara Pharmacy too so it was around €8.00.

3.NYX Matte Lipstick.
I have wanted to try NYX products for so long but it was never available in Sligo, recently a new pharmacy opened up in town called Lannon Late Night Pharmacy You can check out their Facebook page here – They are the first Pharmacy in Sligo to stock a full NYX stand. Lannon Pharmacy also offer a 10% off student discount which is amazing. The first thing from NYX I tried out is the matte lipstick in the shade Sweet Pink. I really like the shade of this pink it is a very vibrant Barbie pink colour. This lipstick was €7.49 and with the student discount it was €6.75. If you live in Sligo or near it definitely check this Pharmacy out.





4. NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray.
This is the last thing I picked up from the NYX stand, I bought the Matte Version of this setting spray about a year ago in Spain by Complete Mistake, I picked up the matte instead of the Dewy finish and I was so disappointed when I got home so of course this was the first thing I grabbed from the NYX stand. This product was €9.99 and with the student discount it was €8.91 Which is a brilliant price for a setting pray, I have not tried this out but I will let you know how I feel about it when I do.


Let me know if you have tried any of these products and what you thought of them and as always thanks for reading :).
