NYX Pink Lyric Lipstick
NYX Pink Lyric Lipstick
NYX Pink Lyric Round Lipstick ($4.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a brightened magenta pink with cool, blue undertones. The finish is creamy with very minor settling into lip lines and opaque color coverage. MAC Pink Pigeon is a touch darker and brighter. MAC Love Forever is a touch darker and less pink (more purple). NARS Schiap is darker, pinker. Milani Rose Hip is pinker, brighter. MAC Florida looks similar.
This one has a lot of creaminess, but it doesn’t slip around as much as Stella or Haute Melon. The consistency allows for really smooth application with excellent color payoff. Pink Lyric applies smoothly, though, and it doesn’t slide around and slip over itself. When I trialed the wear of this shade, I was able to get four hours out of it, which is average for lipstick for me. I really liked the natural sheen of the finish, because it gave lips a more luminous look.
5 True Blue Eyeshadows
Blue eyeshadow is such an empowering shade to wear, because it’s so often the, “No way!” shade. It’s vibrant and intense and there are so many good ones available! If you’re hesitant to wear blue eyeshadow, try wearing it with neutrals–perhaps a little blue in the crease or on the lower lash line.
What’s your favorite true blue eyeshadow?
MAC Liquidlast Liners were probably the most stubborn product I’ve used — that stuff stayed and stayed and stayed.

Beautiful Beginnings with Benefit
What was the first Benefit product you ever tried? Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely? What was the first Benefit product you purchased? Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?
my answer: Benefit was one of the first brands of makeup I ever tried. I remember the two earliest being Benefit and MAC, and I can’t honestly say if one came before the other. I do, however, remember my first big-time purchase was with Benefit. I spent a whopping $300 there when I was in high school (when I wasn’t even allowed to wear makeup!). They used to have a product called Show Offs, which were loose iridescent colors that you could layer on top of other products. I also bought my first brush there during that trip, which was an eyeshadow brush–and I do still have that. Some of the first products reviewed on the blog were BADgal Mascara, their new range of lipsticks (at the time), and Posietint.
