Affordable NYX Cosmetics @

I have been trying out 4 items from NYX for the past 2 weeks. And let me tell you guys, i absolutly love NYX much more! The company that sent me to try these items is Their site sells discounted NYX items and much more. If you are going to their site, it does take a while to load. So be patient. Shipping depends on how many items you purchase.

-This palette is great for on the go. I really love the eyeshadows. They are super pigmented. The blushes are somewhat matte, and go great with any skintone. As for the lips and glitters, i think its nice to have them in this set. The lips are just like glosses but isnt so shiny.

- I have tried out NYX's eyebrow cake powder before. And loved it! This one is much better since it comes with more shades and items. Great for beginners.

- The foundation impressed me! What made me love it much more was it did not break me out &has a pump! The color 03 is a bit dark for me. But since i self tan it will be perfect. This lasts 8+ hours. The coverage is amazing! FULL COVERAGE.

- I think i have just found my new favorite lip product! You all know i do not use lip glosses/sticks a lot. But this product i have been using more than ever. Its perfect.

Review: Cortex Solo 450 Titanium Skull Flat Iron 1" & KQC Thermal Shine Spray

Lately, I have been trying out a new flat iron. As you all know, i always use my 1" Corioliss red zebra one. Well i have left that and now i am totally in love with my Cortex one! I have used my Corioliss one for about 3 years now, and it's just about to be dead. It shuts off on me at random times. And it doesnt keep my hair straight throughout the whole day. The Cortex one is great! It has titanium plates + you can choose the heat setting you prefer unlike my other one!

Prfessional Salon Model
100% Solid Titanium plates
Ionized technology to promote silkier and smoother hair
Far-infrared technology delivers consistent heat distribution, while reducing static
Sleek, ergonomic, non-slip grip, designed for professional comfort
Heats to maxium temperature swiftly
Swivel Cord prevents tangling
Looped end for easy storage
Limited lifetime warranty

Price: $129 originally $269 What a deal!!!!

Let me first say, this heat protectant is WAY better than Tressemme (sp). I ran out of mine for a while now. Andi got the chance to try this out. What i really like about this one particulary is the smell. It is not as strong as the Tressemme (sp) one. This is a bit pricey, but then again it's a high end thermal shine spray. Before using any heat on my hair i spray this evenly all over my hair. And then style it. And after i style my hair i notice that it's more shiny and looks silky.

Price: $18.99

Review: - Blue/green & Lavender Circle Lens

As you know i have tried circle lens before. I've gotten the chance to try 2 different pairs for a little over a week now. The two circle lens are from - They have a great costumer service & offer a variety of circle lens. The two i chose are CM - 905 & YH - 302. They offer prescription if you need it. But i just get plano because i dont wear prescribed glasses/contacts.

Geo Magic Color 3 Tone CM-905:

Diameter: 14.0mm
Base Curve Radius: 8.60mm
Water Content: 38~42%
Power Range: 0.00 - ~10.00
-This pair is very comfortable to wear. The color is a light lavender and as it fades in theres some yellow. As you can see in the picture above. These dont enlarge my eyes as my previous circle lens, because this does not have a black ring around it. So dont expect so much of an enlargement.

Geo Twins YH-302:

Diameter: 14.0mm
Base Curve Radius: 8.60mm
Water Content: 38~42%
Power Range: Plano only
-This pair is my favorite out of the two. This is a little more dramatic, so i wouldnt recommend for everyday wear. Unless if you want to. The color sshows up very vibrant. The color is a sea green/blue and is very gorgeous. Again, this doesnt enlarge my eyes too much, but there is a small difference.

Small Beauty Haul

I picked up a few things this week. And my cousin bought me 2 ELF products. I thought i'd post this 'haul' on my blog because it's fairly small. Enjoy.

These are the 2 items my cousin bought me. The eye duo is in classic brown. And the love using the shadow stick as a base. It's very pigmented. As for the eyeliner, it's not as pigmented but works well for the price.
The single eyeshadow is in Golden Glow. And i am wearing this today. Very pigmented and the color is vibrant over a base.

I wanted to find a beige eyeliner for my water line. And i came across this from Sephora. It was only $5. And it's in Pearl Beige.

Swatches for all three liners. The Sephora liner is first, then the brown ELF liner & the gold/brown shadow stick.

I bought the mineralize blush from the MAC Quite Cute Collection yesterday. Really pretty, great for highlight. This one is in Miss Behave.

At the CCO, i found this mineralize blush. And thought it was gorgeous! For only $16.25 i had to pick it up. This one is LE but im not sure what collection it's from. The name for this is Hang Loose.

Lastly, I picked up the Philosophy Purity facial cleanser since i needed a new makeup remover. I heard lots of good things about this so i picked it up at Macy's. And so far, im loving it! Also, at Sephora they gave me a Bithday gift when i picked up the eyeliner. I used it once and it smells great.
