NYX Haul

I've heard lots of good things about NYX products, mainly from bloggers from across the pond and i've always wanted to try them.
So after searching eBay and a few different sites I had a little spending spree.

I got two of the eyeshadow palettes from The Caribbean Collection and two lipsticks.

The first lipstick that I bought was Tea Rose. I'd seen this on various blogs and youtube videos and thought that it looked like the perfect natural pinky shade.
I love this colour!! It glides on and is so creamy without drying out my lips.

The second lipstick I got was a little bit more expensive as its from their Black Label Lipstick collection and I couldn't find it anywhere on eBay so had to pay full price for it (£8.49). Its called Bling and I absolutely love it!!
This is my favourite out of the two. It does feel slightly different on the lips but if anything, it feels more silky smooth and it gives a lovely sheen to it as well. Its got a gorgeous smell to it and the colour is the perfect colour that i've been looking for to use everyday!!

I really like the colours in these palettes although they are quite similar. I have used the Jamaica one today and so far I really like it. The colours blend well and now im just waiting to see how long they'll last!!

I really wish that they stocked NYX products in stores over here in the UK as it would be nice to look through all the various shades and colours as they've got loads of different lipsticks and I can see them becoming part of my permanent collection!!

Has anyone tried these before?! What did you think of them?!

I love the colors in those palettes but I don't like how they're not pigmented enough =/

I have Tea Rose and love it even though it tends to stain ):
