New York Shopping Haul

Last week I had the most amazing time in New York. I saw loads of things and had a lot of fun. It is impossible to get bored in New York as there are so many things to do and see.

I also left plenty of time for that all important shopping. So here is what I bought. The damage on this stuff alone was close to $600!!

On my trip I accumulated 11kg worth of shopping!! Making my suitcase 27kg. Any more shopping and I would simply have ran out of room. I almost had to buy another suitcase. Although the luggage limit was 32kg per bag, any heavier it would have had to gone via cargo. Talk about serious shopping. If it were an olympic sport, I would get gold each time.

NYX Wicked Lipsticks

I'm really loving NYX makeup at the moment, especially their lipsticks. I'm a big fan of their Macaron lipsticks and their Liquid Suedes. As a lover of unusual lip colors, NYX is right up my street. When I was shopping at the counter a few weeks ago I decided to try their Wicked lipsticks. They come in a range of dark and dramatic colors, all in metallic shades. I got three colors - Sinful (Blue), Betrayal (Purple) and Trickery (Gold).

Sinful, Betrayal, Trickery

Now, these lipsticks have a nice creamy feel to them and give a shimmery finish. Although, at first they can be a bit sheer, but they can definitely be built up to get a full finish. They may have a shiny metallic finish to them but they don't feel at all sticky unlike some lipsticks that do give a shine.

These are definitely not for the faint hearted. These are lipsticks for those who love their color and aren't afraid to show it off. I found that Later on in the day they did need to be reapplied a bit, as some had started to come off.

Once on the colors look awesome. My favorite out of the three had to be Betrayal.
