A melody softly soaring through my atmosphere...


I hope you had a good day!

I had to work early today so my makeup was rushed & I realized after I had been at work for an hour that I completely forgot blush! It's so weird, I have such a specific routine. I can't believe I forgot it! Oh well, that's what happens when I'm tired!

So, here's today's makeup (sans blush!):

I used Lash Stiletto eyeliner today, I like the consistency much better than the Ultra Liner. However, I like Ultra Liner's brush a little bit better. it just is too watery & takes forever to dry. I only used NYX's Red Bean Pie on my eyelid. I used MAC's Shroom on my brow bone as a highlight. (PS - Shroom will forever be my favorite highlight!)

I can really tell that I don't have blush on in this picture. I'm so pasty pale!
I got a coupon in the mail for Ulta & I saw online that they were having a Buy One get One 50% sale on all NYX products. I had to go to the grocery store & Ulta is right down the road. I picked up a few things. I got everything for $21.50.
I'm a huge fan of NYX's products. I typically buy them online but I hate not being able to swatch the colors, so it was good to see some of them in person. However, the prices are much higher than what Cherry Culture's are & they had a very limited selection. But who can pass up 50% off & a coupon?
Here's what i picked up:
1. NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Frosted Beige- I love NYX's Mega Shine Lip Glosses. They have gorgeous colors, are super pigmented & last super long. My favorite part? They smell (and taste) amazing! Frosted Beige is a shimmery, light pink. It does have a beige tone but it's super light & would be a perfect over top of any lipstick.
2. NYX Lip Pencil in Rose - Have you seen NYX's Narcissus? Because this is the perfect lip liner for it! I can't explain how much I love this color. It's the most perfect bubblegum pink!
3. NYX Single Eyeshadow in Highlight- This color is a shimmery, light lemon yellow. It seems like a great color in the pan, I can't way to try it!
4. NYX Lip Liner in Bloom - This is a deep purple pink. It reminds me of NYX's Doll (round lipstick) without the shimmer.
5. NYX Blush in Mocha - Mocha is not what I think of when I see this color. It's a rose pink with an orange tone.
6. NYX Ultra Pearl Mania in Mink Pearl - This is a super shimmery tan brown. It's very subtle but the color is very nice.
7. NYX Single Eyeshadow in Copper - Well, copper is the perfect name for this. It is a true penny color.
8. NYX Ultra Pearl mania in Sky Pink Pearl - Another super shimmery one, but this color is the most gorgeous baby pink. ( I spilt this one all over my keyboard!) I won't lie, I hate the Ultra Pearl Mania packaging. I plan on putting it in a different container.
I plan on swatching everything soon!
Have a lovely night!


  1. I love NYX!
    Great post!

  2. I can;t live with out blush! I am not as pale but I also feel out of my routine when I forget to apply it. You still look nice and I always like yout eye art, so pretty.
