NYX Studio Liquid Eyeliner

I love colourful eyeliner, so I couldn’t resist picking up some NYX Studio Liquid liners in blue and purple.

Here’s a quick swatch of the colours. They are super long wearing. In fact, I couldn’t get the swatches off with regular water! Excited to try these out along with the pink one I got from my Kira Kira Crate.

I’ve been on a bit of a makeup binge lately. My makeup corner is my relaxing zone and I love thinking up creative looks and feeling encouraged to leave the house. I’m getting confident enough to wear more bold colours too.

NYX Suede Cream Lip Vault

My sister bought me the Liquid Suede Vault from NYX for my birthday. It features 24 liquid lipsticks in tons of fun colours. There’s one that is a bit more tame, but I was looking for fun colours I didn’t already have.

Here’s the swatch test! They appear super bright and vivid just like the bottle. It also took a bit of washing to get these off my arm, so they are definitely long wearing.

I wore a vibrant red to a wedding over the weekend and it lasted through coffee and a meal before needing to replay a little bit. I love the purples and I can’t wait to find an excuse to wear it!

My First Ipsy Glam Bag

I finally received my first ipsy glam bag. It’s like the competitor of Birchbox that is affiliated with make up guru Michelle Phan. The service is only $10 a month (but since I’m in Canada it is around $20). Unlike Birchbox, many of the items are full size or bigger samples.

It arrived in a hot pink envelope that certainly good not be missed.

Each month the products also come with a mini make up bag. The March theme was Floral Fantasy so the floral printed bag was fitting.

The first item was this Pixi by Petra mineral eyeshadow duo.

Next was this Glow Oil Treatment to get shiny and hydrated hair.

I forgot to take a photo of it but I also got a full-sized Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter ($18).

Lastly, there was an Oval concealer brush from Crown Brush ($6).

People like to compare ipsy and Birchbox but I find that they are two very different services. Ipsy provides bigger sizes and great value, but I find that Birchbox delivers higher end products that you can try before you spend money on the full sized costly products. It’s really up to you to decide which service you like better.
