I recently made a trip down to Naimie’s to stock up on some Halloween makeup for my clients, and of course I couldn’t help but shop for myself as well. If you’re not familiar with Naimie’s, it’s a huge makeup, wig, special fx, pro makeup, salon and spa heaven located in Valley Village, Los Angeles, CA.
I’m usually drawn to fancy packaging, highly talked about, and just overall pretty cosmetics and products. That is, until I found these little gems. These are Ben Nye Lipsticks that retail for $10, and at Naimie’s, if you’re a makeup artist, you can get pro discounts up to 40% off. Sounds great right? So I got these for $8 each, and for $8 I gotta say I love these! They have a very wide range of shades, but these two really caught my eye. One is a really pretty coral pink shade in Desert Rose, and the other is a gorgeous plum purple dark lip in Wild Violet. The texture of these lipsticks are fabulous, not drying, super creamy and very opaque. I’ve wore Wild Violet for about 3 hours, and it was still nice and saturated, creamy, and it did not dry out my lips at all, but boy did it stain my lips!
