Beauty Event: New NYX Professional Makeup Store Celebration

12 Apr

Hi beauties!

I was very lucky to receive an invitation to an NYX Cosmetics party last week to celebrate the opening of their professional makeup store in Metrown mall in Burnaby (a suburb close to Vancouver, BC).

It was a fun evening with fellow bloggers and local media checking out makeup, food, and fashion (the dress code was afer prom).

On the menu, NYX served up sweet and savory waffles, poutine, and assorted candy (I tried to resist, but the strawberry licorice was so good).

The decor for the party was what you’d expect from NYX with life-size tubes of Lip Lingerie and a photo station, where we could pose with our favorite shade of lip gloss.

Everyone was super excited that the Vancouver area is finally getting an NYX professional makeup store. Sometimes Vancouver is on the slow side, when it comes to retail, because of the high cost of real estate.

NYX was also kind enough to give us a goodie bag with some of their latest launches, including;

I can’t wait to write about these NYX products in the future! Even better, I can pick up NYX latest releases in person. 💕

Smart Illumination: NYX Strobe of Genius

NYX Strobe of Genius

If you weren’t born with it, one way to capture the “glowy” skin look is with an illuminating palette that helps to create depth and dimension with light.

The Strobe of Genius palette from NYX Cosmetics comes with seven versatile shades to master the art of strobing (or highlighting).

Even though the palette looks like an explosion of shimmer, the shades are surprisingly soft and flattering without leaving a heavy finish.

The palette contains cool and warm tones that go beyond basic white and pink, including:

  • Top Row: Gold, champagne, lilac, rose gold (cool)
  • Bottom Row: Copper, bronze, ivory (warm)

If you’re keen on strobing through the fall, this could be your go to kit with so many possibilities (plus you can use the shades as eye shadow, bronzer, or blush).

Serious Solution for Under Eye Problems: NYX Dark Circle Concealer

NYX Dark Circle Concealer

Happy Monday, beauties.

Have you noticed that your under eye circles and bags appear worse in the winter?

Blame it on less sunlight in winter which causes paler skin and more emphasized dark circles.

The best strategy to deal with under eye circles is to use a concealer with an orange tint to hide under eye darkness, especially the deep blue associated with dark circles.

My favorite concealer for this type of job is NYX Dark Circle Concealer.

I like this concealer because the formula is creamy and non-tugging. It also has color-correcting pigments and light-deflecting particles without looking too thick or obvious.
