NYX has finally opened up in Malta! This country has changed a lot in the 3 years that I have been here and one of the changes is the highstreet. A lot of international franchises are creeping in and previously this meant we were being royally ripped off on price (Topshop I’m looking at you!) but the new comers have a little bit more brains about them, and are pricing their items reasonably. This makes me so happy, in a country where the average annual wage is only around €15,000 its utterly senseless to price up items!
The NYX store is beautiful. It’s tiny, but it’s clean, white and shiny and the walls are plastered in gorgeous makeup displays. I will be posting more about the store itself shortly, so keep your eyes peeled. I popped in yesterday and it was packed, some woman was standing in my way every time I wanted to move and I asked her twice to excuse me, she didn’t move or acknowledge me so I pushed my way past. Unfortunately for me I forgot just how big my handbag was a knocked all the tester polishes onto the floor, where they crashed loudly, smashing pretty purple all over the new white floor tiles. I was pretty mortified, the staff graciously went about cleaning it up and everyone in the store stared at me. Excellent. I paid for the smashed tester then bought way too many lip glosses to try and make it up! The woman behind the counter was very sweet at least and didn’t make me feel worse and accepted my 100 apologies with a smile!

I spent €49.60 in total which I think is great considering how much I got and I signed up to their membership scheme although I’m not sure what that entails. The woman in front of me also signed up and she got 10% which I didn’t get which was a little disappointing, but I’m really happy with all my picks though and I can’t wait to try them out. I’ll definitely be going back once the shame has worn off and will be purchasing a foundation and blush for sure!
