|Mini NyX haul (Jumbo eye shadow pencil, blushers, eyeshadow kit, makeup bag) plus two Sigma brushes|
|As you can see, the makeup bag can't even fit standard-sized brushes...I can only foresee putting in makeup pencils in the brush slots..|
|The NyX Nude on Nude Natural Look kit is a compact set of eyeshadows with lip gloss; handy to carry around if needed|
The blushers were slightly smaller than I thought they would be too but I love love love the colors: I got Mauve and Angel. A bit powdery but color intensity was amazing, had to learn to apply with a light hand with this one.

On a non-Nyx note, I'd also finally got myself two Sigma brushes, the first two I've ever had, and am in love. It was pricey really. Sigh. Hence I could only get two for now. The tulip shaped F25 Tapered Face Brush is sooo soft and lovely to use. I've always wanted one since I saw one of my fav youtube makeup gurus, nguerriero19, use it for her blusher application and could never find one similarly shaped anywhere. So when I saw it available in a local reseller's website, the one which also sells NyX, I took a deep breath and ordered it although it's a bit steep for just one brush. I also got myself a E17 waterline liner, seeing that I experiment a lot with smoking out eyeshadows these days.
Am quite sold on Sigma brushes now. I'll have to save to get a proper essentials kit though as they are really pricey, for me anyway, but after testing these two out, I feel that it'll be worth it. I'll talk about my brushes in a separate post though, so it'll be all about brushes.Till then!
