NYX Mall of America Grand Opening - A Recap of the Madness



Yep. I must be crazy. 

Well, at least that's what everyone thought when they walked by the line I waited patiently in.

For FOUR hours.



You heard me right.

I waiting in line for four hours for the grand opening of the NYX Mall of America store. Can you believe I waited four hours to spend my money? What were they giving away? Free makeup, a shopping spree?

Not exactly. Each person in line got a lip-shaped make up bag, and a scratch off ticket that could be worth something. I got $5 off of a $25 purchase. That's it. Part of me wanted to jet as soon as I got the gift, but I figured I would stay since I waited that long. Fifteen minutes later,  I made my purchase and was soo ready to go.

All that time and I didn't manage to take one picture. My feet and legs were screaming at me so yeah, sorry there's no pictures.

While in line, I got the chance to hang out with my niece and daughter and we talked about make up and drama. You know, girl stuff.

It was fun. Well I guess it was fun. I wish my body felt the same way.

I guess I'm disappointed because there was a media event the night before that I didn't know about. Not sure why they didn't contact me. I love going to those type of things. Plus, I'm a beauty blogger so...

Here's what I purchased at the NYX Mall of America grand opening event. NYX Lip Lingerie, NYX Eye Lingerie, NYX Butter Gloss, and NYX Dark Circle Concealer.


Did I mention I stood in line for four hours? 


Have you ever waited in line for something like this?

  7. Wowsers! You lost me at four hours lol. I've never stood in line for anything that long. I think the longest line i stood in with my kids was at Hershey Park for a new ride and we were in line nearly 2 hrs. Had I known, we would've never waited that long. lol
