FOTD: NYX Simply Vamp

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

Boo...! Did I scare ya? :)

My very first FOTD for the year, thought I should go all out and show you NYX Simply Vamp lip cream in Temptress, the more bad *ss shade between the two lol.

I did start out with Temptress outlining the lips and Bewitching filling in the rest to test the "wearing alone theory" I mentioned in the review. Temptress ended up swallowing Bewitching whole and took full credit for the lips. Rude huh? :)

Again, I know the colour is not for everyone, nor for everyday, but this is where makeup is fun to play with, at least for me. Squirt actually commented on these lips, glad I didn't scare her off.

Other products used in the look:

- L'Oreal Youth Code Texture Perfector serum concentrate
- Make Up For Ever HD Microperfecting primer #2 Mauve
- Maybelline Baby Skin Instant pore eraser
- Annabelle BB Skin Perfect concealer in Medium
A quick heads up here: Annabelle is discontinuing a few BB and CC products this month. Stock up your favorites before they are gone
- CoverGirl & Olay pressed powder in Medium
- Make Up For Ever HD Second Skin cream blush in #510 Raspberry
- Elf smudge pots in Cruisin Chic and Poppin Party
- Annabelle Retractable eyeliner in Twilighting
- Marcelle Xtension Plus + Pro Lash Growth Complex mascara in Black
- InstaGlam Brow Design + Fix in Medium to Dark and Wet n Wild Color Icon brow & eye liner in Dark Brown.

While talking about Annabelle products, there is an Annabelle holiday set (and a few more sets from Marcelle) on clearance at Shoppers. I am tempted to check them out with the 18,500 bonus point offer today.

The first week of 2015 has gone by, how are you all doing? I am still trying to get back to daily routine while adjusting to -20 degree weather after a tropical vacation.

Also need to sort out blogging schedule for the month. After those big Boxing Week hauls I posted on Monday, I have enough goodies to blog for months, just not enough time :)

Have yourself a good rest of the week and stay warm!


  1. I love this FOTD! The lipstick is such a lovely shade! I'm going to need like 50 layers to stay warm where I am!

    1. Thanks :) I might need the same amount of layers, I'm always cold, and this winter has been pretty brutal
