Visit to the NYX Headquarters!

One of the most thrilling things I had the opportunity to do while visiting California in June was to drop by the NYX Cosmetics headquarters. As many of you probably know, I am an old-school, die hard fan of NYX makeup and it was the first brand that I actually collected. It seems crazy to think about but in a way, NYX ignited my fire for makeup in the early days of my beauty blogging!

In other words, seeing this sign at the top of the building was a bit surreal!


I apologize ahead of time for the insane number of pics but seriously, Kassia is a wonder photographer and there was too much eye candy to share. ^_~

Here's just inside the front doors. The lights above were pretty!


Here I am sitting on the red "interview" couch with Evegail for my interview for NYX's Youtube channel.


A close-up of the wall behind us. Just looking at this makes me smile. :)


Greeting the new NYX Slide-On pencils for the first time. Oh goodness yes! I brought them all home with me and I will do swatches and yes, I love them. ;)


Finally after waiting for some important business people to do actual business in the showroom we got to take our peek in...


Aaaaand WABAM, makeup for miles! Is your jaw dropping yet? This was only one half of the room!


My sister and I were getting our swatch on while Evegail dutifully wrote down things that we wanted to try. (Such patience. I don't even know how many crazy girls she's had to shuffle through here while we all go giddy over gobs of makeup.)


Swatching my FAVORITE Black Label lipsticks. :D


Here I was trying out a Grinding Blush which was so nicely milled and shimmery.


I definitely picked out a few new things that I had never thought to try before, like their HD primer which is what I was looking at here.


I am in love with this glitter palette. I actually didn't have any of NYX's infamous glitters and I was kicking myself for never playing with them before. This palette has so many colors and makes messy glitter SO EASY to use. I can't wait to bust this baby out for a sparkly tutorial. :D


Look. At. How. Happy. How happy? Stupid happy. ^_______^


This is me trying to convince Evegail to let me move in permanently. Pleeeeease?


Okay, so maybe I didn't convince her but she was still sweet enough to pose with me. We kind of match! Curled hair, striped dress, and blazers. Yesssss!


Before we left we also met Tony Ko, the founder of NYX Cosmetics! Isn't she drop dead gorgeous?


Sadly, I had to finally gather my things to leave but not without a ton of incredible memories and a few quick heart palpitations to send me on my way.


Final pic outside the front doors. I'll miss you NYX Los Angeles!


Thank you soooooooo much to Evegail and everyone at NYX for being incredibly sweet and accommodating during my visit to NYX. I am such a super-fan of the brand and it was just a dream come true to basically get to see everything, and I mean everything in the entire NYX lineup. The only thing I would change is that next time I sincerely promise to meet Sir Bruce Barkalot in person. ;)

What a photogenic cutie!

I hope you enjoyed traveling along with me to NYX's headquarters. It's so fun to relive the memories through vlogs and photos so I hope that comes across to you too. :) If you thought the photos were amazing, please let Kassia know in the comments below and follow her blog as well!

More Cali blog posts to come...

  33. Hey I wrote on your chat thing on the side, but I'll make a comment here too since it relates!
    I was wondering if you could do a comparison of the Naked Palette and NYX Nude on Nude.
    I wanted to find an alternative to the $48 Naked Palette and found that NYX one and was wondering which one I should get. I'm leaning towards the NYX one since I am a student, but a post comparing the two would be very helpful and informative!
    thanks!

  40. Hi Jen,
    Could you tell me about the quality of the NYX slide on pencils; if there is smudging, creasing, long-wear? I know you've used them in a few tutorials, but you haven't really mentioned if you like/dislike them. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hi, I thought you said you're gonna do a review on the NYX Slideon Pencil swatches, but I've searched almost every post in your blog, and I can't find any traces of the swatches. So can you pls do a review and swatch post and/or video on the NYX Slideon Pencil. Pretty please. ^_^
