A few things I’ve purchased before and just needed to buy again because I was running out.
Starting from the top…
Avocado sheet mask from Ulta
MAC Studio Fix powder (re-purchase)
MAC Pressed pigments in Smoky and Amethyst
Wet and Wild Brush cleansing wipes (Pretty excited to try these out)
NYX Ombre Lip Duo in Poppy/Lily
L’oreal Infallible Super Slim felt tip liner pen (re-purchase)
MAC lip liners in Cherry and Kiss Me Quick
MAC lipstick in MAC Red (re-purchase)
MAC Fluidlines in Ivy and Shade
NYX lip pencil in Beige
Two Real Techniques brushes (shadow and highlighter brush)
Random Ardell Lashes
and not pictured, the #159 MAC Duo Fiber Blush brush
What I’m reviewing in this blog post, is the NYX Ombre Lip Duo. This was a total impulse buy while I was standing in a much too long of a line at Ulta and I am SO glad I decided to pick it up, so much so, that I think I’m going to go back and get the rest of the colors that they have in stock. It cost $11.99 at Ulta and on the NYX website. These Ombre Lip Duos come in a total of 12 color variations but Ulta only had 3 or 4 of the 12 in stock. Boo!
The color pay off is amazing. It’s a gorgeous color. It’s very creamy and not at all drying and best of all, it has an awesome wear-life. Below is a picture of when I first finished my makeup and the picture on the right is 5 hours later, after I had been running errands, eating, stopping at Starbucks for a much needed iced coffee and doing a million other things. I never touched it up. In fact, I purposefully left the NYX duo on my vanity so I wouldn’t even be tempted to touch it up. Next time I will go over the outline a little heavier so there is more of an ombre effect. Overall, I think this product is well worth it and you should definitely check it out. If you’ve tried it let me know what you think!!
