Merry NYX-Mas! + NYX Wanderlust Advent Calendar Unboxing – The Minted Blog

posted in: Blogging, ZERO WASTE | 0

On December 3rd I was lucky enough to attend NYX‘s first Flagship Store opening at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, and I had an amazing time! The store is beautifully set out and the staff were so lovely and accommodating on the day.

Not only was I lucky enough to get a sneak preview of the store beforehand, and do a little shopping, we also received some of the most coveted goodies available in the store and also available at Priceline! The Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault (RRP $79.00), the Liquid Suede Lip Cream Vault (RRP $79.00) and the Wanderlust Advent Calendar (RRP $99.00).  Wowee!

*Spoiler Alert*

In this blog post, I will be opening and sharing with you the contents of the NYX Wanderlust Advent Calendar (RRP $99.00)! If you want to keep the contents a surprise, I totally understand if you want to click away. But for those curious on the value of the Calendar, please keep reading!

*Last Chance!*

Okay. I decided to open each day and share with you the contents of each day so you can minimise doubles in your collection!

Overall, in the NYX Wanderlust Advent Calendar (RRP $99.00), you’ll find 12 Eyeshadows and 12 Soft Matte Lip Cream Minis. Each set of two is allocated a major city from around the world, and the illustrations corresponding coincide with each city. A cute touch to a gorgeous collection.

A few of the shades are a little patchy (all swatches below are one swipe so you can see) but are definitely buildable and are opaque with two coats.
