My name is Krystel and I have a makeup addiction!

Hey that's Me and Tye from
Notice the Gloss again
Ok OK so the vintage 40's thing didn't work out lol!
Scary I know this is what a makeup addiction makes you do

Did you notice the lipgloss in every pic?

Yes,see in addition to the makeup addiction I specifically have a lip gloss fetish too.

That’s why I am happy to bring to you this wonderful giveaway courtesy of NYX. I have been a NYX customer for quite some time, mainly because I love their lip glosses and eye shadows.

Recently NYX sent me these lipglosses to try out:

From left to right: Ice Princess, Vanilla, Frosted Walnut

NYX glosses are not filmy and gunky like many others. Have you ever wore a lipgloss that causes that wad of film in the corner of your mouth? I know I have!

I especially loved the vanilla because I am a big fan of a frosty look and that’s just what I was able to achieve with “Vanilla”. “Ice Princess” was great in that the first time I wore it I didn’t have alot of makeup and it really brightened my face up. It gives you a pink clear shimmer without looking like a cheap 99 cent gloss that you would give your 6 year old. Lastly with  “Frosted Walnut” I was able to achieve the same look as I did with “Vanilla” but it was alittle darker and more for a night out on the town use in my opinion.

While I do used other well known and more expensive brands, NYX provides intense color and a real shiny laquer. The same as some of the more expensive brands.

Lipgloss has become my choice of color for my lips simply because for some reason I don’t do well with lipsticks. They are usually to dry and wind up all over the place.

Check out these pictures of me wearing some of the colors above:

Sorry I look alittle sleepy in each photo...I was !
Long Day but still rocking my NYX Lipgloss!

My daughter is going to be so excited because I’ve already brought her quite a few to throw in her stocking . Speaking of stocking stuffer, these make great last minute gifts and stuffers and they are extremely affordable at just $5.50 a pop.
