NYX Professional Makeup at Westfield Century City
The following is a guest post (and photos) by the hilarious and awesome Lauren Wilson of MomGame.co, who I met and personally got to know recently. She attended the NYX Mom’s Night Out (by special media invitation) at Westfield Century City for WestsideMommy.com last week. Below is her experience!
Anything that forces me to shower and get out of the house past 7PM is already a winner in my book. So as I was sitting in LA traffic, with no makeup on, and already an hour late, I was thrilled to be going to the NYX Mom’s Night Out event (ultimate #momgame). Mama needed some me time.
We were celebrating the grand opening of their new store at Westfield Century City, and NYX pulled out all the stops! There was a nail station, a lip artist, eye makeup touch ups, a photo booth that made us look like models (thank you), the teeniest pink donut treats—yummo—and a private tour of the new store, which featured some pink neon signs that I obviously lurved. I learned the right way to use lip liner, and the NYX products were surprisingly good quality and super affordable. The highlight of the night was stopping by the whimsical lip reader station. Not like reading your lips and knowing what you’re saying, but a lady who reads the lines of your lipstick smooch and gives you insight to your personality. Passionate? Harmonious? Ethical? I’ll take it!
They spoiled us with an amazing gift bag—a cute pink train case holding lip creams, eye shadow, eye and lip liners, highlighter, glitter, brushes, and my favorite—the NYX “Naked” nude makeup palette that has 14 shadows, blush, and highlighters all in one mirrored compact—perfect for moms who do their makeup in 5 minutes or less!
Side note, my most surprising little discovery was the Hint water they served at the bar (no, I didn’t have champagne, and no I’m not preggo). I had their yummy/healthy watermelon infused sparkling water and it was SO good—can’t wait to drink it again this summer.
Thanks again to NYX and their awesome team! Will definitely be hitting them up soon the next time I need some fun new makeup.
