Out of the Barren Sands arises NYX Desert Rose

Hello beautiful! I know I am late in discovering many wonderful items made by NYX but hey better late than never right? So this is my first blush from NYX! Do a happy dance for me! I am lately crazy about blushes so why not give one a try. I asked the charming NYX lady from the Long Circular Mall kiosk to help me find a colour that was matte and would be suited for my medium dark skin tone. And like that one blossoming flower you find in a barren desert, the stunning Desert Rose NYX blush revealed itself to me. 
Now on first impressions I felt it looked like a medium shade pink but on application it appears more like a berry pink, but beautiful color all the same. It’s a matte blush and extremely pigmented in one swipe. It goes well with my medium dark skin-tone. The wear was excellent, lasted me for most of my work day. 
Hey focus on the blush!
I couldn’t be more pleased with this as my first NYX blush and I’m definitely looking out for more shades of these on my next trip to the mall. Hold me back someone!
Happy Blushing!
XOXO
Naomi

  2. I have Silky Rose, Mauve, Mocha, and Pinched. Mocha(gorgeous deep pink) and Pinched(bright pink with gold shimmer) are my all time favorites. I have 3 backups of both. Haha! I'm terrified they're going to be discontinued. I use one or the other everyday. Emilynoel83 from youtube turned me on to them.

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Loreal Infallible Eyeshadows! Plus More!!!

I can go for weeks, maybe a month without buying new makeup. I have that discipline but all that goes to south (I’m a north girl) when new products come out to play and particularly when I was literally stalking the stores to see if there was a sighting of the new Maybelline color tattoos. Come back next month. Ask me again in two weeks time. These were the comments I kept getting but finally there are here and what better way to celebrate their arrival by going nuts and buying their showcase neighbours as well, the Loreal infallible eye-shadows. I love Pennywise! 

Happy One Year Blogoversary!

One year already? OMG! Time really flies when you're having fun . I really enjoyed my one year with you. I've made new friends, improved on my nail and makeup techniques, tried new trends and products, discovered I love nail art (can you tell) and the list goes on. But most importantly I want to thank you all for your support and kind words that kept me going. Honestly there were some times when I was down since I didn't feel my articles and pictures were great but you stuck in with me and for that I say thank you. But I also would like to say thank you and to celebrate this achievement by my first ever giveaway! A Rafflecopter Giveaway
