Over the weekend I had the chance to welcome NYX to Canada at their official IMATS after-party/soiree. While I’m a known Sephora junkie (seriously, all the girls there know me – holla Eaton Centre team!) – there are a few select items from NYX that I’ll make a mad dash for while scrolling through Rexall. When I heard a couple of weeks back that the brand was opening its Canadian flagship in the city – I nearly died. The lines offered by the brand are comparative to other stand-alone stores at a more affordable price – and who doesn’t like that?! I scrounged through my take-home bag at the end of the night to see how I could make the best use of some awesome matte lippies and coloured mascara (which I have a penchant for)!
It was a fun night of burger treats, Vino, and TAG Vodka cocktails; with trap music on deck. Best of all was meeting Sonjdra Deluxe – one of my favourite IG-famous makeup artists – who is based in Vancouver. She and her crew – (including Raschelle aka ‘MsRoshPosh‘) glistened amongst the crowd with their supremely beat faces. Sonjdra is as loveable as you could imagine, if not more. She took time to greet everyone, take selfies (and shots with!) – as well as hug everyone on the way out. In a creative world where social media numbers mean so much – she was most certainly humble in real life. Can’t beat that.
Stay tuned to see how I incorporate the brand into my looks whilst out and about.
** a huge thanks to the Lotus Leaf team for having me!
