Who isn’t a sucker for a good lipstick? I got my hands on a few shades of the NYX Butter Lipsticks & I am beyond impressed. Having tried the Butter Glosses in the past, I had high expectations for these lipsticks and they lived up to the hype.

The NYX Butter Lipsticks come in 22 shades. Here are a few of them:

Nyx

These lipsticks give you long-lasting bold color with a silky smooth application while leaving your lips super moist. These are all the qualities I look for in a GOOD lipstick. The bonus here is that they retail for only $6 each!

Here are my 2 favorite shades:

candy buttons

Candy Buttons (BLS09) which is a Peachy Pink

Hunk

Hunk (BLS05) which is a Blue Violet

Seriously…. how FAB are these 2 shades??

Do you have any of these lipsticks in this collection? If so – what are your favorite shades?

I’m extremely late posting this BUT I won a Giveaway back in September from Amy at Makeup and All That Jazz! I’ve done a few giveaways but it was nice to actually win one filled with goodies 🙂 Here is what the package contained:

I’m a sucker for personalized notes in packages! This one was SO sweet.

While I loved the whole package, my favorite items had to be the ELF Studio eyeliner/shadow stick in blue and both shadows.

Last Friday I got together with a few of my girlfriends and we headed to Hurricane Club in the city. It also happened to be Restaurant Week so we took advantage of their amazing $38 dinner special. This was my first time here and I was beyond excited because I heard excellent reviews about both the food and yummy drinks.

Starters:

HC1

We started with:

A few fruity rum drinks.

-Coconut Shrimp

-Fiery Pork Dumplings

-Grilled Chicken Skewers

-PB & Guava Jam Sandwiches

All of the starters were full of flavor and delicious but the Coconut Shrimp topped them all. I’ve never seen Coconut Shrimp done up quite like at the Hurricane Club.

Entrees:

-Tiger Shrimp

-Honey Glazed Ribs

Both were AMAZING! The Tiger Shrimp had a kick of spice and the ribs were some of the best tasting one’s I’ve had in a long time.

We also decided that getting the $72 Watermelon was necessary and it was worth every penny!

HC2

Yup, a full watermelon filled with Vodka, Fresh Lime, Mint and Rhubarb..

HC3

My beautiful best friends (Left to Right) Jen, Maria, Jocelyn and me at the end 🙂

Lastly, we were served dessert.

NO words can describe how incredible this dessert was.

Chocolate Kill-Devil’s Food Cake [Bruléed Banana & Caramel Rum Sauce]

Overall, my dining experience at the Hurricane Club was a really good one. From the drinks to the food to the service – everything was fantastic. We will be back again.
