Get Holiday Glam with NYX in the 6IX

Glittery eyes, bold lips, and highlighter you can see from space: there’s no such thing as too much when you’re getting glammed up for the holiday season.  This time of year, you can bust out all your glitz and glam and no one will bat an eyelash, because they’re doing exactly the same thing.  It’s also the perfect time of year to play with those palettes you’ve been collecting since the last holiday season, and that’s exactly what we did with the NYX Toronto City Set.

NYX was already one of my favorite brands, with its huge color selection and professional level application and staying power.  But they really won my heart when they not only gave my home town its own signature Soft Matte Lip cream AND its own palette.  Part of the new City Set special edition collection, NYX expanded on its already popular city namesake lip cream collection with a versatile and travel friendly palettes.  Each set includes four eyeshadows, one blush, one highlighter and of course, a color-coordinated Soft Matte Lip Cream. It’s a full face in a stylish and collectable case.  Along with Toronto, New York, Santiago, and Dublin also got their own lip creams, but since this gal’s from the 416, that’s the palette that’s getting play this holiday season!

Addicted beauty contributor Martese Belizzi masterminded two great makeup looks for you; one to trot out to your holiday parties, and one to help you look your raddest while ringing in the new year.

Getting glam is always a blast with these gals!
