Today I decided to try a Christmas inspired makeup look. I have been loving red plaid lately, mostly due to this festive blanket scarf! My sister recently bought the Jaclyn Hill Morphe palette when we were in Arizona so we used that to create the eye look. Everything I used was from the drugstore except the blush!
Foundation: Fit Me Matte and Poreless in shade 310
Bronzer: Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer
Blush: Tarte Blush Palette in Fortunate
Eyes: Jaclyn Hill Palette in Hunts and Little Lady
Eyelashes: Single Ardell Lashes
Mascara: Essence Volume Stylist Lash Extension mascara
Eyeliner: NYX Matte Liquid Liner
Brows: NYX Precision Brow Pencil in Ash Brown
Powder: Marcelle Face Powder
Lips: NYX Matte Lipstick in Eden
I know I have not been posting as often this month. Mom life is definitely more busy than I imagined and I have been focusing on things around the house as well as some volunteering lately. I hope to get back to blogging a bit more though!
I have been on the hunt for a great makeup Advent Calendar that is accessible to Canadian’s! I got an email telling me about this NYX set being available on the Canadian website so I HAD to have it. I had originally decided to go on a spending freeze in October but seeing this quickly ended that. Most advent calendars that appeal to beauty lovers are mostly skincare related and often come with a high price tag, so I appreciated that this one was makeup and was quite affordable!
My online haul from NYX Cosmetics included:
Lippie Countdown Advent Calendar $65 CAD
- This set is so beautiful. The packaging is really nice for its fairly affordable price point. You get 24 small lip products that vary in collection and color. I am excited to try these out, I likely won’t be able to wait until December. I may try these out in November in order to give a good review and a chance for beauty lovers to purchase this if they are interested!
Liquid Creme Suede Lipstick – Holiday Set $19 CAD
- I really like this formula and like that they offer holiday sets. You pretty much get one lipstick free so its definitely worth it! I also really like all 3 of these colors. Some of these may end up being gifts for some of my girl friends though.
Precision Brow Pencil $12 CAD
- I saw this in the NYX store in Edmonton but they were all sold out of my color. I have been using it for a few days and I really like it. The applicator is a bit thicker than the micro brow pencil and I like that because I already have full brows. I can do my brows quickly but precisely and I am really loving this so far. I also appreciate how it has a spoolie!
I hope you enjoyed this post! I really love NYX Cosmetics because they are affordable and good quality. They are a part of L’Oreal Group and I feel they compare in quality and price but often come out with more fun colors and ideas. Let me know in the comments if you are excited about any of these products, or if you have tried some of them out yourself!
