Hello, my lovelies! I never thought I’d do yet another review on lip makeup, or makeup for that matter.. but here I am, crushing my own expectations. Hahaha! 😀
Last Valentines’ Day weekend, I took it upon myself to go out of two and off the the Queen City of the South, Cebu City! I’ll do a separate post on that, but for now I’ll give a little bit of a background as to how I purchased this little baby.
Basically, I was wandering around SM City Cebu and trying to familiarize myself with the mall. It was HUGE! Not quite Megamall huge, but definitely bigger than SM Southmall. I didn’t know anyone in Cebu (save for a couple of friends who, alas, had work that day so I was left on my own for Saturday) and for some reason, the hustle and bustle of an SM mall gives me a vague sense of comfort.
THEN I SAW A SHINING BEACON IN THE DISTANCE
/cue angelic choir/ HAAAAALLELUJAAAAAAH
HOLEY CRABSTICKS IT WAS A NYX STORE.
NYX Cosmetics is well-loved here in the Philippines (and in the whole world, for that matter) for affordable, high-quality cosmetics. It’s a favorite of online sellers (and buyers) for its wide range of shades and products. So how do you think I felt (as a relatively new lover of makeup) when I found an ENTIRE SHOP just for NYX? (Hint: It involved a bit of jaw-dropping and slight wheezing to myself.)
Apparently they also have branches at SM Megamall and SM Mall of Asia, but maybe I can visit there when I come home to Manila– /excited/
They were having a sale on selected items, which led me to check out this particular display:
See the little orange tube near the top left hand corner of the display, by the lip crayons? It’s hanging out in front of the lip glosses.
It was the last Butter Gloss in the whole store.
They were having a sale on selected items, and the Butter Glosses were the first to go.. So how lucky was I that the last tube of Butter Gloss left on sale was in the shade that I was most curious about – Peach Cobbler? So of course I immediately bought it, and went on my way. /no regrets/
I finally got to try it out when I came back to Dumaguete.
