Contouring Made Easy with NYX Wonder Stick

NYX Wonder Stick

The NYX Wonder Stick (not to be confused with the NYX Wonder Pencil) is a new dual sided chubby all purpose chubby pencil. The NYX Wonder Stick is available in 4 different shade combinations and includes one universal shade for shading, concealing, highlighting and contouring.

Think of it as in all in one wonder for contouring or perhaps contouring for dummies (me, of course,, being a dummy about contouring!).

It’s available now at for $12!

Check out a diagram how to use it below with before and after pics!


A Honey of a Primer from NYX

NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer

NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer is a new makeup primer inspired by the golden glow of honey. Honey Dew Me Up Primer is formulated to neutralize discolorations and redness with light reflective gold flecks to create a luminous glow on skin! Supposedly it contains collagen to smooth skin, honey that acts as a antiseptic, and gold flecks to give skin a radiant finish!

NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer is $17 and available now at

Sounds interesting and reminds me a little of Guerlain L’Or’ Radiance Concentrate but at a far nicer price eh?

What do you think?

Might be interesting to try out?

Not sure about the spatula applicator though! Wouldn’t a pump been a little less messier!?


NYX Introduces Suede Eyeshadow Palette for Fall 2014

NYX Suede Palette

Maybelline is going Leather for Fall 2014 and NYX has some Suede up its sleeve with the introduction of the new Suede Shadow Palette for Fall 2014.

This delicious palette is named after the texture of the shadows, which are, apparently, like suede!



Maybelline Chocolate Suede Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Chocolate Suede

Maybelline Chocolate Suede Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is one of the new Leather Color Tattoo Eyeshadows launched with the Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Fall 2014 Collection.

From my understanding Chocolate Suede and the other four shades from this collection will be permanent! I recently came across them at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and they are also starting to pop up at Walgreens.

Maybelline Chocolate Suede Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is actually the only shade from this collection that isn’t matte in finish! It also happens to be my favorite shade of the five colors released.

Take a look!


Rimmel Exaggerate Auto Waterproof Eye Definer Review & Swatches

Rimmel Exaggerate Auto Eye Definer

I recently came across a new Fall 2014 display featuring Rimmel Exaggerate Auto Waterproof Eye Definer! I’ve personally never heard of the Rimmel Exaggerate Auto Waterproof Eye Definer formula so I assume they might be new to the US but don’t quote me.

These retractable eyeliner pencils are available in six shades and promise a soft creamy texture with 10 hours of long lasting wear.
