I’m sort of a professional makeup hoarder on the side. I love experimenting with new colors, new products, new techniques – all of it. Most days I stick to a fairly natural look, with the exception of some serious black eyeliner on my upper lids (that I’m convinced makes me look more awake). But when it’s time for a night out or a big event anything goes.

Saturday I made a run to ULTA for some face wash in lieu of Sephora. It turned out to be a fortuitous trip when I decided to look around and came upon a line I’d never heard of before, NYX. On a whim I picked up two lip colors. I’ve been on a never-ending search for the perfect red for well over six months, so who knew I’d find it in a $4.99 lipstick pencil. I’d also been lusting over NARS Schiap for almost as long, but wasn’t willing to dish out the $25. Lo and behold, here was my solution for under ten bucks! I’ll definitely be checking out more of their products in the future.

    NYX sponsors Rupaul’s Dragrace Season 3! The winner gets a lifetime supply of their make up. I highly recommend watching every season though: http://www.logotv.com/video/episode-1-season-1-drag-on-a-dime/1603692/playlist.jhtml

    Omg I love nyx! I too just discovered it a few months ago at Ulta. I am picky about my lipstick, it can’t have too much gloss, no shimmer, no sticky lip gloss… etc… so when I found their soft matte lip colors I about died… I am almost out of the tube I bought, and am definitely gonna get it again!
