Yesterday when I was shopping in Cardiff I did notice that NYX had finally landed in Boots. The counter or counters as I should say were not surprisingly, extremely busy. I didn't expect NYX to have that many items for sale. I honestly thought it would just be a small counter with a limited amount of stock. I was completely wrong, NYX managed to take up quite a bit of space, which is a fantastic thing. It meant that they had the full product range as well as staff on hand to help you look for any colors you need as well as applying anything you wanted to try on.
For someone like me who loves their color, this was heaven. I really like the Macaron lipsticks NYX do and I was really glad to be able see the full range of colors from that collection. They had the Wicked lipsticks too which are perfect for people who love metallics.
One thing that really did bug me was some of the customers on the counter. I know this isn't just NYX it happens to but other brands too. Some people really have no concept of hygiene and were actually getting the lipstick, gloss and just applying it straight out of the tube. I'm pretty sure NYX had some applicators around where you could put on some color without any contamination. Seriously though, why do people even do that, then they are the first to complain when they get a skin infection. If you want to try color on, ask one of the staff and they will either apply it for you or give you an applicator. I heard about someone getting a nasty skin infection from MAC once because she applied the color straight out of the tube. I could rant about this all day and I think I will in a separate post. It isn't NYX's fault but some of the brain dead people who go to Boots.
NYX were also giving out free wristbands so you could meet some well known people from Instagram. I passed on the opportunity as I was really busy.
The new counter is superb and definitely worth a visit as you will not be disappointed.
