As you may already know: I don’t have much self-control. When I see something I like, I tend to buy, buy, buy until my wallet’s squealing louder than a car alarm that went off in the middle of the night. I’m a little crazy like that. Case in point: The insane haul of NYX eyeshadow pigments & lip glosses I got from HauteLook when they had a super NYX sale one time.
I normally get the NYX pigments from Cherry Culture at a really good price. But HL had 2 sets of 28 of these pigments on sale. With shipping and international fees, each came to about $2. So naturally, I got both sets. *hangs head*
“Why stop there?” I asked my frightened credit card who’s gone completely white in the face. I also picked up a set of lip glosses on sale, too. *drops head to ground*
Want to see the mountain of pigments I got? Warning: Please make sure your chin is at least 2 feet from the ground as your jaw might drop.

I caught these during a limited-time NYX sale at HauteLook (their sales change frequently). If you’d like to grab these before NYX appears on HL again or if you only want certain colors, Cherry Culture sells them for $4.25 each (for both shadows and glosses).
Anyway, it’s not a completely selfish haul. Five of the eyeshadows pigments and one of the glosses are featured in our Swatch And Learn 1-year blog anniversary giveaway! Check out the post for other great prizes and how to enter. Hurry as the giveaway ends on Swatch And Learn’s birthday: July 25. Good luck!
If you’d like to request swatches for any of these, let me know and I’d be happy to do them for you! 😛
Do you think I went crazy getting all these eye shadows? Which color is your favorite?
