This morning, our secretary complimented my eyes. It was amazing, since she kind of hates me. Oh, well, the feeling is mutual. But there’s a good reason why my eye makeup has been looking better than ever lately. I changed my technique by adding a smudged thick line of NYX eye pencil. Purple is the best. I am so happy that I found NYX Cosmetics!
I line my waterline with black eyeliner first, then I take one of the jumbo NYX liner pencils and line the top and bottom rims. And usually it looks kind of sloppy. Then I just gently smudge the lines with a fingertip. And then it looks good! Easy.
The best part of NYX cosmetics is that they are professional-quality cosmetics that are cheaper than drugstore cosmetics. They offer really good value for the money. They have a wide selection, as well. Both your everyday cosmetics and glittery special occasion stuff.
Speaking of which, I desperately want some of their fancy fake lashes. I’m a sucker for such things. And such fun shapes and colors! Sure, I really have nowhere to wear such things, but I still want it. Plus, it’s an inexpensive indulgence.
You can pick up a NYX kit for a really good price (112 eyeshadows for $35 is pretty cheap!). For equivalent kits from MAC, you would pay a couple hundred dollars. You can experiment with new colors and textures this way.
NYX saved my butt a few years back. I decided it would be a good idea to lighten my eyebrows up for summer, so I did a little at-home bleaching. It looked really good, and I was pleased with the outcome. Then I went on a class trip to Hawaii. By day two, I noticed something quite odd–my eyebrows had partially turned highlighter yellow in the sun! I had to live with it all week, but when I got back to California, I had to find a solution. NYX was the only company that offered a light brown eyebrow pencil that helped balance out my bright yellow eyebrows. LIFESAVER!
Right now, HauteLook is having a NYX sale event. Six jumbo eye pencils for $16.50! I can confidently suggest any of the eyeliners and the Doll Eye mascara. If you don’t have a membership to HauteLook and would like an invite, let me know in the comments!
