It was a funny moment when I realized that NOT ONCE had I tried a lip product from NYX. Lipstick is a category NYX seems to be known for, and I seemed to have just skipped right over the selection all these years. Well, that finally changed a couple of weeks ago when Ulta ran its 40% off sale on NYX and a few other brands. I had my eye on several products for quite some time, so I decided to snag them while on sale.
Without further ado, keep reading for my review & swatches of two new NYX Simply Nude Lip Creams and a Butter Lipstick in Pops!
It might be the beauty geek inside me, but fall has to be my most favorite time of the year- and it’s mostly due to the makeup trends.
Yes, there are other things to look forward to about fall: dressing in layers, drinking anything with “pumpkin spice” in the name (I personally haven’t jumped on that bandwagon yet), Halloween, Thanksgiving, boots… I could go on! But really, it’s that week in September when we finally start seeing trend blogs feature berry lips, strong brows, and deeper, jewel-toned nail colors that I really get excited for fall.
While I wouldn’t exactly classify Zoya Yuna as a jewel-toned nail color, she is nothing less than a beauty- and a shade I think you need for fall. Please keep reading for more swatches & my review (AKA why I’ve worn her three times over the last couple of weeks)!
TGIF! Since Friday is my favorite day of the week, what better way to celebrate than with a post about a GLORIOUS new makeup product?
As yesterday was my birthday, I went on the obligatory it’s-my-birthday-so-I’m-treating-myself shopping trip- my first stop was the MAC counter. It feels like years since I last visited my local counter at Macy’s! MAC recently launched a few gorgeous collections, so I wanted to check them out in person.
Number one on my shopping list was a powder blush in Taupe, part of the new Artificially Wild collection. Spoiler alert: don’t overlook this one just because it looks like a plain, medium brown. It’s a must have for light-skinned gals who have yet to find their perfect contour. Please keep reading for more information and photos!
