On Blushes and Bronzers

I cleaned my vanity tray earlier and also checked every single one of my makeup items for signs of spoilage or contamination. Fortunately, everything’s in tip-top shape so there was no need for me toss anything into the trashbin.

NYX Cosmetics

I recently found out that Chimes- Abreeza now sells NYX Cosmetics so I purchased a handful of   items.  I normally don’t buy more than a couple of makeup items at a time because I’m not a makeup addict.   However,  I just discarded at least a third of my stash so I had  enough reason to spend a little more on cosmetics.

 

  Here’s what I got:

  • NYX Eyeshadow Base in Skin Tone (P325) –>smoothens lids prior to eyeshadow application; does nothing about the creasing, though.
  • NYX Nude on Nude Natural Look Kit (P599) –> pretty colors, convenient for every day use, size is perfect for my kikay kit
  • NYX Megashine Lip Gloss in Frosted Walnut, Copper Penny, and Beige (P250/each)–>  creamy, glossy, long wearing 
  • NYX Round Lipstick in Strawberry Milk (???) –> this is perfect for those with light skin tones (pls. don’t ask me why I bought it)
