NYX Cosmetics. Any "Boots" branches that stock them , not just online?

I keep seeing this brand flash up on the Boots site but I've been to big branches (Lakeside and Bluewater) it's not in stock.

So, London.
Any London Boots stocking NYX? I'm planning a trip to Oxford Street soon.

(If not I'm stomping off to Selfridges to throw my toys out the pram)

No Boots branches as far as I am aware, in Central London, but Selfridge's stock NYX. It's sort of at the back of the posh make up, nearer to the stationery.

Sure I saw it in Glasgow St Enochs Boots a couple of weeks ago, I know that's not much help..

Ah, bit of a step from Glasgow grin
On the website, they're stocking NYX in Manchester.

I will ponder in Selfridges and maybe buy online from Boots.

MrsSchadenfreude Fri 15-Apr-16 14:57:48

I don't think Selfridge's is any more expensive than Boots.

I'm not a make-up wearer but I need a eyebrow crayon (I use ybf but it's nearly run out) and I like the look of the Lip Lingerie .
I might get inspired to wear some colour smile

I saw the line in one the Glasgow Boots' too.

It is in Manchester

Massive display in Manchester's central Boots.

70isaLimitNotaTarget Fri 15-Apr-16 20:29:43

Very odd that it's available elsewhere but not darn sarf

DD informed me that she saw it in Bluewater Boots, we went there but there was only a poster up (she lied, the swine)

MrsSchadenfreude Fri 15-Apr-16 20:56:58

How can it be available in the Provinces, but not in London?!

nothingwittyhere Fri 15-Apr-16 21:20:16

Boots is/was a Nottingham company so maybe they don't hold "the Provinces" in the same low regard you seem to.

I looked on the Selfridges website, it didn't have the Lip Lingerie.
So I ordered online from Boots to try it.

I ordered "Bedtime Flirt" , DD ordered "Teddy"

The "Teddy" colour was nothing like the photo (the one of the lips) but pretty close to the colour swatch ( the 'lip' was nice. The swatch was dark) , so it's very brown.

So, she's taken the Bedtime Flirt, it's a nice colour, lasts well, goes on very matte.

I will buy more instore but I'd really need to see IRL.
I'm also after the eyebrow pencil.

I had a good browse around the stand (Preston) and bought a few things. Really impressed so far with everything I've picked

Euripidesralph Fri 06-May-16 23:46:10

Nyx is coming to bluewater there was a sign up but no idea when

Stocked at the Intu Chapelfield branch

justaweeone Sat 07-May-16 09:45:33

Sorry forgot to say in Norwich

postmanpatscat Sat 07-May-16 19:38:26

I've just bought some in Hounslow.

Just came across this thread on Google, to see if there's a NYX counter in Cambridge, (I know there's one in Peterborough, but I'm not going there, for a change, and there isn't one in Cambridge. sad ) They've just opened their first stand alone shop in Westfield Stratford City, and there are probably a few counters in London by now! I prefer going through Boots so I can get my points.

(Yes, I know this is a zombie topic, oh well.)

SharonBottsPoundOfGrapes Thu 13-Apr-17 01:26:36

I was completely ignored by the three girls working the NYX counter in the Trafford Centre. I didn't realise until someone younger and slimmer came over and they all went to help her and giggled over how they all wanted to serve her. I went to the No7 counter and was helped immediately.

Is it as cheap as it is in the states? Its in every drugstore there? Is it treated higher end here?

SharonBottsPoundOfGrapes Thu 13-Apr-17 01:44:08

It's cheap and I love it but just stick to buying on Amazon or EBay now. I love the soft matte lip creams. Transylvania is my fave and cost £4 on Amazon.

Boots at High St Ken have a large selection.

dailystuck71 Thu 13-Apr-17 07:55:47

Edinburgh does.

Eastbourne and Hastings has it in store if you fancy a trip to the seaside!
