Confession: I’m Obsessed with NYX Lipsticks

Disclaimer: Purchased by me I have many, many favorite brands and formulas when it comes to lip products like lipsticks and lip glosses.And it’s a true toss-up as to whether I obsess more over lippies or nail polish/nail art, and I have the makeup-hoarding closet to prove it!

My 5: Lipsticks

I love lippies. Love, love love them! When new seasonal collections come out, lipsticks and lip glosses are the first product (along with nail polish, of course!) that I want to see in new colors! But no matter how lippie-obsessed I am, I have a few staples that I rely on for events, everyday or even just …

NYX Bohemian Chic Palette

What I love about the NYX Cosmetics Bohemian Chic palette, a nude matte collection, is that it’s not just basic neutrals. Bohemian Chic has 24 soft matte eye shadows that vary is subtle earth tones, but that doesn’t mean variations of brown and black – there are smoky greens, blues and a wine color, too, so …

Bottled water? Check. Canned and other nonperishable foods? Check. Tons of candles and matches, and flashlights? Check. Hurricane Irene nail art? DOUBLE check! What’s a nail fanatic to do when Mother Nature gives her a second natural disaster/event in one week (we had an earthquake on Tuesday)? Why, I put it on my nails, of …
