Review & Swatches: NYX Eyebrow Gel in Chocolate & Soft Matte Lip Creme in London

I think I'm the millionth person to get incredibly excited about NYX coming to Boots - I'm yet to see NYX in store, but I saw their small stand in Selfridges and it was really nice being able to swatch their products in person as I've only ever ordered online.

I've really been neglecting my brows lately, and I haven't shaped them in forever. I always just use a dark brown matte eyeshadow to fill them in with an angled brush and I'm usually super lazy with them. I'm running out of the eyeshadow so I was on a quest for a new brow product. Part of me wanted to try the Anastasia dip brow, but it's just sooooo expensiveeeeee. I opted for the NYX eyebrow gel as it's waterproof and I reckon I'll be able to really define the shape of my brows.

I loved using this on my brows! It's the perfect colour match and it didn't make my eyebrows go hard or feel crunchy. I used a Zoeva Brow Line brush and used it sparingly to define the shape of my brows. Since I only used such a tiny amount I reckon this is gonna last me ages!

I also picked up a Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade London - I've never used their lip creams before but I've heard amazing things about them. I wanted a nice neutral shade that I could layer over lip liners. This shade is definitely 'my lips but better' which is a perfect nude for my skin tone.

I didn't realise how nice these lip creams smelt! They're super creamy and it glided over my lips without it feeling too tacky. It dried to a nice matte finish without drying out my lips. The staying power for this is amazing - I noticed pretty much no fading or smudging after eating, drinking and over the course of the day. No wonder these lip cremes come so highly recommended!
