    NYX Vivid Brights Liners

    NYX has done it again! The NYX Vivid Brights liners are so amazing. These relatively new liners are so fun and creative. They come in nine different shades, pretty much every color of the rainbow (literally); and for only $7 a piece, it’s easy to collect them all. Which you will indeed want to do.

    The color payoff is bright and vivid (as the name suggests). It is an easy to apply liquid liner with a brush applicator. I would easily give these liners a 10/10 because of their price point, their versatility (as they can be used in so many ways), and because of the range of color choices.

    Photo Information: NYX Vivid Brights in shades (top to bottom) Vivid Fire, Vivid Petal, Vivid Halo, and Vivid Blossom.

    Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick

    Smooth, silky, and long lasting! Jeffree Star’s Velour Liquid Lipstick is one you’ll want to add to your ever growing cosmetics collection. This liquid to matte lipstick goes on velvety smooth, and dries to a soft matte finish, with no stickiness or clumping.

    Available in 26 shades, from Drug Lord (bright white) to Weirdo (blackest of blacks), and every color in between. 

    Each lipstick costs $18, and is well worth every penny. This is a product where you get what you pay for (and even at $18, it’s a bargain).

    Photo Information: Top Photo – Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in shades Celebrity Skin and Redrum, Middle Photo – Closeup of shade Redrum, Bottom Photo – Shade Redrum accented with NYX White Liquid Liner, NYX Black Liquid Liner, and NYX Vivid Brights Liner in shade Vivid Petal.

    NYX Banana HD Finishing Powder


    NYX knocks it out of the park again with their HD Finishing Powders!! After having such a long-standing commitment to my Lancôme Dual Finish powder, it was really hard for me to try another powder. How was I possibly going to like something quite as much as my current powder?! 

    Well, over the last week I have been slowly using the NYX HD Finishing Powder in shade Banana (using the baking method) while doing my makeup, and I LOVE it! I am very pale, and I was extremely worried that I may literally be the shade of a banana after using this, but it couldn’t have looked more flattering. The finish was soft matte and the texture didn’t feel cakey or thick. 

    The NYX website describes this powder as a lightweight translucent finishing powder that helps soften the appearance of fine lines and pores and that this silky pressed powder has a fresh matte finish. Based on my experiences using it – it lives up to its description.

    The powder comes in a variety of three shades: Mint Green, Banana, and Translucent White. With a price point of $10, I would strongly suggest trying this little treasure out.

    Powder on! 😉

    Cosmetic Glitter!


    I love sparkles! So with the abundant amount of cosmetic glitters available now on the market, I am a happy girl!

    The two brands I have tried recently are NYX and Glitter Injections. Both come as a loose glitter, however Glitter Injecions has a line on pressed glitters which look AMAZING. I have them on my list as one of the next products I want to try.

    The NYX Brilliant Glitters are made for the face or body and come in twelve different shades. They are available online and at Ulta for $6.00 each.

    Glitter Injections loose glitter comes in a few different sizes and come in virtually any color you can think of. They have a wide selection of chunky and specialty glitters as well.

    What cosmetic glitters are your favorites? Let me know, cause one can never have too much glitter. ✨😊✨
