It’s no secret that I am an avid fan of NYX Professional Makup, so when I got an invite to attend the pre-launch of the first #WorldOfNYX in Africa in November last year, I was very excited. I have since also been able to attend a meet up that they organised for a few bloggers and influencers in Johannesburg. 

At the meet up we got to test out a few of their products that will be launching in April (can’t wait!) and yes I’ve spotted a few products that I simply have to have, including a beautiful radiant finishing powder which may just be a worthy dupe for MAC’s Mineralise Skinfinish Natural range. The meet up was also in part a celebration of the two new upcoming openings of #WorldOfNYX displays at Mall of Africa (Johannesburg) and Gateway (Durban). I caught some of the action on my Insta stories, however makeup artist and beauty influencer Thandi Gama has a vlog on the event – check out her channel HERE.

Anyway, as the excitement mounts up leading to the two new openings, I thought I would share with you some of the products I received at the pre-launch and give a brief review, so that you may know which products to get while you are out there.

I love a good DIY mask however when I saw that the L’Oréal Pure Clay Masks had finally hit our South African shores, I simply had to get one. These masks were some of the most 'talked about' products of 2016, so naturally when more than one beauty blogger says buy it, I oblige. I decided to get the Glow Mask and so far it's fit perfectly into my pamper routine.

Coming up with my pick of the top 10 beauty products that stood out in 2016 was actually easier than expected. These products were the unfailing dons of my 2016 beauty collection, so I thought I should give credit were credit is due.
