NYX Lot Sale! And other tidbits...

.



NYX Cosmetics is having an awesome lot sale right now at an unbelievable price! For an example, they have 30 of their pigmented lipsticks ALL for only $24.00 and the retail value is $120! That's a steal! Some readers have asked me about my thoughts on NYX and if they are as pigmented as MAC- and to be honest; I used NYX way before I even dabbled in MAC and I have always considered them to be the cream of the crop under the drugstore category/affordable brands. NYX has great pigmentation, a variety of colors and products, and the best part is that each one of their products makes our wallets happy because they are all so affordable. Most of their items such as their single/trio eyeshadows, lipsticks, lipglosses, lip and eye pencils, etc. are all well under $8 each.

If your a beauty vixen on a budget or looking for good dupes of some other products, NYX is a perfect place to start.

Thanks to all you ladies on the hair suggestion! I value your input and opinions greatly, and as much as this blog is helpful to some of you, it works the same the other way around in which each and every one of you have HELPED ME! So thanks my blogger sisters! I have decided to do the side swept bangs and leave my hair dark (for now), although for the summer I may want to throw some highlights for a little variation, but it's not a sure thing since I am lazy when it comes to maintaining my hair and I hate nothing more than having to go to the salon for a touch-up.

The show was great in a nutshell, not as big as other shows i've been to BUT industry wise I thought that this was the BEST show if you are a makeup artist, aspiring makeup artist, special fx, etc. because the best artists and creative minds in this industry- were there. So this is definitely the show you want to be at. I will talk more about it in my upcoming post, but it was a fantastic show and thanks to you wonderful ladies that stopped me to say hello! It was so nice meeting some of you finally and to chat a bit, you all are just stunning in person and I appreciate the support, especially to those who sat in on the forum! Ingrid & Audrey (Fabuless Beauty)- you girls are so sweet and down to earth and it was such a pleasure!

Erica and I were super tired from the show, we ended up not going to the after party; especially because I have work the next day...so I ended up knocking out for a couple of hours to re-energize myself (and dreaming about Robert Pattinson a.k.a. Edward Cullen! LOL). Didn't even get to play with my toys I got from the show (next post!) But nonetheless we had fun...and we learned a lot! Which of course we will be sharing with you our experience and the new tips and tricks of the trade we have learned from our favorite celeb makeup artists!

And yes...the Purely Cosmetics post will be posted today for sure! Probably while im watching the new episode of GOSSIP GIRL!!!



Of course I was dreaming about Edward Cullen! LOL. (Don't tell the BF!)


HAHAHAHA

Erica: "you're too white, it doesn't match"
Me: "I'm a vampire! I am supposed to be pale!"
Erica: Oh geezus...

Bella just doesn't know how to pick the right foundation! LOL.

Robyn @ Purely Cosmetics said...

ARGH! I thought I spent all my money yesterday! Even at the show, I just couldn't bring myself to buy someone else's makeup. But how does one turn down 43 eye shadows for $43??? It's a business expense... that's the ticket! Yep, bought 43 eye shadows so that I could umm... dup the colors.

Worst case scenario? Maybe my daughter who won't wear her mother's makeup 'cuz it's not cool if your mom makes it will use these. I cannot believe I just did that! Too good of a deal to pass up :)

Oh - I meant to ask you yesterday and forgot: are you wearing your eye shadow roadmap???

Wind said...

hahahaha....I love the last pic!!! You'd make a much better Bella!!! The real one annoys me! Ur too cute Vanessa!! By the way, can you give me a good recommendation of a true purple eye shadows??? Thanks muchos in advance!

Makeup Mews said...

Thanks so much for the news on the NYX sale! I already ordered the lipsticks, even though most of the colors seemed kinda dark, I'm sure I can find something I like. Your photoshopped pic almost tricked me too, for a second I thought you really took a picture with him LOL.

FuN and MakeUp said...

ur eye makeup is always sOoo purrtyy!

Emeria said...

Nessa you're soo funny!!! I loooove him too!! Anyways I gave you an award. Look at my blog for more details and looks like you had fun at the show..i hope i get to meet you at IMATS in person!!

Connie said...

Ahh... I wish I need that much makeup so that I have an excuse to buy the lots!

Mary said...

how bad is it to sleep with your makeup on?

Vanessa said...

Hi Mary, well if you wear makeup all day, your skin needs to breath and rejuvenate itself, so if you sleep with your makeup on, there really is no time in between where your skin can just breathe. As much as possible, I don't like to wear makeup if I don't need to have it on, so when I am at home I immediately wash my face, I don't feel comfortable sleeping with all those ingredients on my face and having it settle in my pores...which causes breakouts.

Thank you so so much for posting that sale! I was just going to buy much of those same eyeshadows from cherry culture, this is MUCH BETTER! Thanks again!
Jessica

Cindy said...

Thanks for letting me know about the sale... How can anyone pass up that many eyeshadows and lippies for that price?! :) I love your eyeshadow combo by the way, subtle when the eyes are open and bright when closed...genious! :D

Milan Angel said...

Hi Vanessa,

So nice meeting you at the show on Sunday! You did GREAT at the blogger forum. I loved the teal and purple eyeshadow look. Keep up the good work!

Milan

Just me, myself & I said...

Thanks for sharing this! I ordered the lipstick & eyeshadow lots! :)

AMD35 said...

Thanks! I definitely took advantage of this sale! :)

enoogen said...

does anyone know how long the shipping is? or if you get a tracking code? i ordered my nyx products on the 16th and still haven't gotten a tracking code or anythung?

Robyn @ Purely Cosmetics said...

Enogen - I ordered uh... the day of the post. Was that the day before yesterday? I got a shipping notification today, shipped via UPS with a tracking number. It's supposed to be here tomorrow, but that's probably because NYX ships from LA, and I live in the LA area. Hope this helps. Bottom line: ships fast, with tracking numbers. And I went for the cheapest method.

Aya said...

Many thanks!
Aya
