Finally! I’ve Found the Forbidden Lipstick!


FINALLY! I’ve finally found the NYX Copenhagen Soft Matte Lip Cream and I don’t know whether to scream for joy or smack someone. I’ve been to countless Ulta stores in multiple states hoping to casually find Copenhagen and Transylvania chilling in the ravaged NYX section with little luck. Total headache!


Either NYX doesn’t make nearly enough of these things or chicks need to stop acting like they’ve never had a vampy lip before. Copenhagen and Transylvania are ALWAYS sold out! In stores. Online at both Ulta and NYX. It ain’t easy tracking these babies down! But by golly Batman. I’ve done it!

Sure, I still haven’t found the mystical Transylvania but snagging the last Copenhagen has restored my faith a little. And enabled me to pick up a few other goodies including:

  • NYX Butter Matte Lipstick
  • NYX Morocco Soft Matte Lip Cream
  • NYX Zurich Soft Matte Lip Cream
  • NYX Monte Carlo Soft Matte Lip Cream

I’ve also been dying to get my hands on the Butter Matte lipstick for about a year now but my local Ulta doesn’t carry it I believe. Luckily, I was able to find it in Chicago (Oakwood Plaza I think) so I can see how it compares to my MAC Nude lipstick from the Rihanna collection. I’ve heard it’s a great dupe so I can’t wait to see how Butter measures up!


Since I loved the Pore Filler primer so much I decided to take a chance on the Shine Killer primer. My skin has been deathly dry lately so I probably won’t be using it on myself any time soon but I hope it’ll work well on my oily skin clients that need a little help keeping shine at bay.

  1. I saw a girl in target with zurich and it reminded me of MAC pander.

      Really? I wanted that lipstick. Hope it’s a close dupe!

    I went to two ulta’s to find the same shades and same story, all sold out. I was told there were 2, yes only 2, of one shade in the entire wharehouse. The salesclerk seemed to think they were phasing out these. I hope not.

      Omg noooo! I really hope they don’t discontinue them! Especially since I still haven’t found Transylvania yet but it makes sense if they do. The spring releases are starting to roll out and these are pretty wintery. I didn’t think they were limited edition but maybe they are. I’ve been to my local Ulta multiple times and I don’t think they’ve restocked them once

    I wish you would post lip swatches for everything

      Lol I usually post them when I do reviews. I’ll try to include them for swatches too
