NYX Fall Collection

From top left to bottom right: Highlight & Contour Stick, NYX Color Correcting Concealer, NYX Lip Top Coat V'amped Up!, NYX High Voltage Lipstick, Eye Shadow Base, and NYX Prismatic Eye Shadow.
NYX has been one of my favorite drugstore brands because they have new products almost every season! This fall, they focus on highlighting/concealing aspects. This is a little different than last year when they had the eye shadow palette with natural colors (ie. brown, black). 

My favorite in this collection is the High Voltage Lipstick. The bright, nourishing lipstick doesn't dry out my lips. In addition, the color just transfer enough to things such as cups. So its a cute little lip mark when you drink coffee <3

The eye shadow base is my second favorite because I have a fairly oily eye lids. 

Each summer my discoloration gets worse as I spend 2-3 days a week in the bright sun playing volleyball. I will be showing a before and after photo when I use the wonderstick & concealer for my halloween makeup. Stay tuned for update!

Fall Nails

On a clear October night I was looking out the starry sky & decided it was time for a change.

I started with Essie's nail polish which makes the nail stronger as a base coat. Then I proceeded with Revlon's fall collection.

Revlon's new gel envy line has amazing, pigmented colors. My favorite is Wild Card (440)! The glossy royal blue color is rich and full in just 1 simple coat.  

Then I added the cosmic flakes, extra sparkly glitter pieces towards the tip of the nail to give it a glam.

Ending with a glossy diamond top coat (010). 

What's your favorite color from the Revlon collection?

My third graveyard shift

Since my first job search, I avoided positions that required graveyard shifts. Mainly because I am not a night owl. It was difficult to extend my bedtime past 10:30PM nowadays after working full-time for over a year. Also, I don't want to be accountable for tasks which I am not capable of providing 100% for.

This is definitely my first exception. One which I am still question if I shall continue. My reasoning behind my current position working at a call center for a commodity organization is I started my co-op here. An industry which I planted my passion on 4 years ago. The only opportunity for me to land in the department I wish to work in is to start in the front line crew. 

This is the third graveyard shift which I have yet to get the hang of. The first 4 hours are bearable. However, 5-7th hour gets really tricky to stay awake. 

For these shifts, some choose to work in this schedule due to the flexibility in the daytime. Perhaps the additional pay does payoff for staying up late. For others, they have no choice.

If you were given the choice, would you want to stay up late to work?
