Up until today (15th June) the people of Birmingham could only get there paws on NYX through their counters in store’s like Boot’s. At 10am, the brand spanking new Birmingham NYX Store opened in the Bullring, with Birmingham’s very own Instagram MUA; the stunning Diva Adana cutting the ribbon.
Unfortunately due to work I wasn’t able to arrive to the new store until 10:30am, missing out on the ribbon cutting, however Diva Adana was floating graciously about the store looking absolutely incredible!
The store itself is located by the entrance of the Bullring with the Bronze Bull and leads right on to the high street. Inside both walls are flanked with colourful products and sign’s, the staff I interacted with were wonderful! They were friendly and warm and dealt with the technical issues they were facing like pro’s, the sales advisor I met at the start of my journey into the new Birmingham NYX Store knew her products, offering me her recommendations and advice on best-selling products and texture’s and those products instantly went into my basket.
For 10:30am the store was thriving, with two long-ish queue’s (due to technical difficulties, the tills didn’t want to co-operate with the number of sale’s they were handling, slowing the system down) but the girls serving were calm and offered friendly service. The first 150 customer’s who spent over £15 received a goodie bag with 5 NYX Products inside, and spending over £70 you received a travel case, I was close to £70 I must admit however I didn’t feel like holding the queue up any longer, and I am not really in need of a travel case.
As a first time buyer of NYX Products, I purchased a lot of makeup, picking up an item or two from each line of product’s I’ve always wanted to try from NYX. There will be blog posts coming on the product’s and even a cheeky haul video over on Youtube (when I’ve mastered the editing thing) So please keep your eye out for that and any likes, comments and subs would be greatly appreciated and returned if you drop your youtube link in the comments below. I also have a Primark Haul Video coming too (again when I’ve mastered the editing thing) I would love for you to come join me on this new Youtube journey.
What would you pick up from the NYX counters/stores? Which are your holy grail NYX products? Did you attend the new Birmingham NYX Store opening or pop in for a visit?
