NYX Haul...and bull riding!


Sorry for the lack of posts this week, blogger was down, and I was sore due to "bull riding"... our boss surprised us with a trip to Universal Studios on Wednesday for Employee Appreciation Day, and it was fun! It was so nice of him to do that for the company's 10 year anniversary! We had lunch at Saddle Ranch restaurant, which has a mechanical bull, and I never rode a mechanical bull before so I had to try it! And all I can say is that it's my first and last time LOL. As I write this, I still have 2 big bruises on my legs and my right arm still hurts. :(

I got my dinosaur hoodie featured in the video from Hot Topic, I had a lot of questions about where I got it from so thought i'd mention it on here as well....I got it months ago so it may or may not still be on their website.

And I got eaten by a shark.... :)
Anyway, I ordered a few things from when they had their NYX sale, 50% off select items, and thought i'd swatch all of the NYX Lip Liners I own so far, I love how pigmented they are not to mention 10 times cheaper than MAC lip liners and other high-end brands (it's pencil people!)

I also got their Black Label lipstick in "Cancun Pink" (I loved their other shade "Dusty Rose" too!), and their round lipstick in "Snow White". It looks really, really dark in the tube but it comes out a nice perfect red! Let me know if you want me to compare these to other pink and red lipsticks I own, and I will be happy to! :)

I also got their nailpolish in "Dolly Pink" which is a gorgeous color and their jumbo eye pencil in "Milk" to use as a base on some eyeshadows. The lipgloss is NYX's "Beige", which is one of my favorite glosses and had to restock.

Hi Vanessa,

Nice bull riding video!

We recently made a list of the best lip gloss over at Ranker, and I wanted to find some expert opinions on how we did. I found your blog, and I noticed we didn't have any NYX gloss in our list. Wanted to know if you thought we should have included it!

Check out our list here:

Thanks for your feedback!
