If you don’t look at the NYX Limited Edition Sugar Trip collection and instantly get Katy Perry California Girls throwbacks then you’re not looking at it right! As soon as I saw the Christmas collection, I couldn’t help but think of the video with massive sweets and treats floating around everywhere. And that’s certainly the vibe that the NYX collection is also giving out this Christmas. It’s full of yummy, delicious and enticing elements – and what’s more: it’s fun. It’s really fun. So naturally, I wanted to write about it.
What I like about this range, past the fun designs, is that there’s a product or gift for every budget. They have some smaller stocking fillers as well as their vault collections which always blow me away. And of course, you can’t forget the Advent Calendar either. So it gets a big thumbs up for being such a comprehensive collection.
Starting with the under £10 goodies we have their tree hangers and baubles. There’s several to pick from in the Land of Lollies collection and all items come in a gift box and a tag to hang on your tree. The Glossy Lip Tints would have to be some of my favourites and there’s three colours to pick between as well. There’s then also a gorgeous lilac shade highlighter to match which would give a popping highlight this Christmas. All of the Land of Lollies sets cost only £8 each so they’re super affordable, cute and lovely shades. Basically, you can’t beat them!
Next up are the gorgeous palettes – and there’s some seriously cute ones available this year. Never ones to launch a Christmas collection that doesn’t stun, NYX have given us a huge choice of palettes. I love the Whipped Wonderland Eyeshadow palette which contains eight shades and they’re all really useable and wearable colours. With a slight bronze/pink colour range, you’ll be able to achieve some great warm bronze eye looks with this. It comes in a gorgeous tin that matches the range and it will bring a great smile to the face of anyone who find it under their tree this Christmas.
If you’re looking for a matching cheek palette to go with it then pick up the Sugar Trip Squad Palette which is a six shade palette to create so many gorgeous looks. The shades are all quite different which creates some real versatility – meaning all skin tones can enjoy it. With bronze and pale tones you can layer them together or use individually to create any sort of look you want. But each shade pops a lot of pigment punch, so beware – you’re highlighter is going to be seen from space! (Which is really what all us girls want, right?!)
So those are my top picks from the collection but I do also have a huge wish list as it’s just such a fun range that I want to try more of. So if you’re looking for more from the NYX Sugar Trip Range then check out the rest of the goodies on my wish list
