NYX Make Up and Bomb Cosmetics Haul | 123 Hair and Beauty

Uh oh, 3 shopping haul posts in a row? That's a serious indication of lack of restraint over my purse strings! Eep. But I've been working hard, both at work and at uni, so I thought I'd treat myself (a few times) to keep myself sane and keep a smile on my face. To see my other recent buys you can see my ELF haul and my Boots/Superdrug 3 for 2 splurges by clicking on the linked text. 

Live in the UK and thought that the make up brand NYX was hard to get hold of?? Well so did I. Most people know that larger Next stores are now stocking a few select items, but it's more than simple enough to order online from the UK NYX site ( and if you want free delivery and 5% off your first order then head to 123 Hair and Beauty, where I made my order from. I'll admit that I was quite dissatisfied with the length of time my delivery took, especially as it was sent in two separate dispatches due to some items becoming out of stock after my order was made and I had to wait over four weeks for them. Other than that, I'm happy as Larry with my order.

(Oh, and because these are quite hard to find in stores too, I also threw in some fancy looking Bomb Cosmetics bits for my winter bath times while I was making the order). 

Jumbo Eye Pencil - Milk (£5.00)
Jumbo Lip Pencil - Hot Red (£5.00)
Soft Matte Lip Cream - Antwerp (£5.50)
Round Lipstick - Fig (£4.00)
Powder Blush - Dusty Rose (£6.00)

The Jumbo Eye Pencil in 'Milk' is a very typical purchase from NYX and an item that many a blogger and vlogger own. I wanted it in time for Halloween to perfect my zombie make up (yes, that is how delayed this haul post is) but it didn't arrive until 2nd November - ah the inconvenience! Other shades for these Jumbo Eye Pencils have disgusting names - French Fries and Cottage Cheese? - I just can't take those seriously as eye make up products! Haha! I guess the rest of the products are self explanatory really, but just look at the shade of the 'Fig' lipstick about the perfect every day pink.

Fear not that there's no swatches or detailed information about each of these make up items because I plan to do an individual and thorough post on each and every item when January rolls around and I've got a bit more time on my hands. For now, though, this is just to wet your whistle of what you can see on Cosmetic Crave in the new year and a snippet of the range of products available from NYX. 

Bomb Cosmetics 
Knickerbocker Glory Whoopie Blaster (£4.25)
Chilly Millie Bath Blaster (£3.95) 
Crazy Chic Bath Mallow (£3.95)
Strawberry Sundae Bath Creamer (£3.80)
Very Berry Bath Creamer (£3.80)
Kiss Me Quick Bath Creamer (£3.80)

I've not tried any of these bath products from Bomb Cosmetics yet, despite having them sitting in my room and smelling amazing for about 3 weeks now! I'm not sure if I will review them all, but I definitely will post more pictures on Instagram when I use them. (Follow me: @HannahRipley1). They're a bit pricey, especially the small bath creamers (they really small - I can fit 3 in the palm of my hand!), and it would probably be cheaper to buy from Lush, but they're something a bit different and look funky too. 

If you're looking for some nice little stocking fillers for Christmas gifts then maybe check out Bomb Cosmetics because they do lots of cute little soaps and candles, etc too, and they're buy 3, get 1 free!
