Party Essentials: Are you ready yet?

So that sparkling perfect dress is sitting pretty in your wardrobe, and those party pumps are waiting to bring the world to a halt. All set. And, if 

One, you're one of those girls who love makeup that's actually seen. (readparty makeup)
Two, when they do it, they rock it even after they're all tipsy.
Three, and they need that dream kit to replenish their vanity without shelling out a bomb.

Here's the deal.


For the lack of decent shooting equipment, umm no, Youtube's annoying policy actually, that doesn't let you watch high-res videos NO MATTER WHAT, I request you to please PLEASE view this at least at 480p to avoid clarity/resolution horrors that Youtube doesn't let us avoid. *grumpy face*

Taken off the ugly Youtube version from here - found a better alternative on Vimeo!

You can still view this video on Youtube here.
P.S. do not forget the 480p limit. :)

(1) NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Amsterdam: I prefer this any day over the sticky, waxy Xtreme Lip Creams by NYX; while all their colors are super long lasting, non sticky and super light, Amsterdam turns out to be my favorite color. Addis Ababa follows close next. Actually I can't decide.

(2) NYX Eyeshadows 

Volcano: Give more depth to your eyes with this dark brown, neutral eye-shadow, preferably applied to the outer corner of the eye. (Why does this always remind me of cad b??? WHY WHY WHY?)

Peach Bronze: While I don't see anything peach about this shade, there is a whole lot of shiny gold in there! No ugly, chunky glitter, just smooth, delicious eye-candy. On the crease / inner corner of the eye, paired with (2) above (and maybe an eyeliner if you want to go bolder), for an instant party eye look; subdued, yet glamorous.

(3)  E.L.F. Bronzer + Highlighter: While the highlighter gives you disco cheeks (in the good sense of course), the bronzer is something you should NOT miss! Vital this party season, if you want those to-die-for cheekbones.

(4) Bourjois Blush in Ambre D' Or: Top off with this crazy cute blush from Bourjois. The perfect cheek shimmer/color, that also smells as delicious as it looks!

(5) Revlon nail lacquer in Pretty in PapayaAnd finally this is another cutie that makes you want to smell your nails whenever you bring them close to your face. No really! This gives off a delicious, fruity smell after application that makes me crave cheesecake. I might just prefer gold nail lacquer, but this color looks (and smells) so pretty, it's just unfair to let it go. :(

What are your vanity essentials this party season?
