NYX Haul

By now you probably know that I entered a NYX contest to create a 5 minute look using their products. If you didn't see my tweets and Facebook updates, then you probably don't know that I won. Well, I won!!! The prize: a $75 gift card to spend on the NYX cosmetics website. Being the good little beauty junkie that I am, I spent it. Immediately. I was not only excited to get new products, but also, there were some things that I'd been wanting to get, but couldn't justify spending more money on makeup (I had to do some serious cleaning out and rearranging of the makeup storage to fit these things in. True story) or I had similar things (like the Naked Palette) or the specific item colors were simply not available at ULTA and I didn't want to pay shipping (ahem, single eyeshadows). Thanks to winning the contest, I could overlook all the excuses that were stopping me. I'd make room. I could get that palette that's supposed to rival the Naked palette and review it. It didn't matter that I needed more blush like I needed a hole in my head. I could get that palette they don't carry at ULTA and the eyeshadow colors I'd been looking for. And, I could test out their lip glosses (another thing I need about as much an extra belly button). 

I wanted to give you all a sneak peek at all my goodies. I have not swatched them or used them yet. But don't worry, you know that I will. What I wanted to do was give you all an opportunity to voice your opinion on what you want to see the most. That way, I can swatch, test, and review according to what you want to see. So, in the spirit of getting your feedback, here are photos of all the goodies I received.

Alright, I'm just dying to hear what you want me to write about first. Also, are there any videos you'd like to see with these products?
