Ding, Ding, Ding! The pizza rivalry between New York and New Jersey is over and New Jersey is the winner! Whether it’s a slice or a pie, casual or fine dining, Hip New Jersey tracked down some amazing spots you must try. Read more below on where you can find beautifully handcrafted, authentic Italian pizza near you.

Nonna’s Pizzeria and Italian Restaurant goal was to provide the best Italian cuisine in Florham Park, NJ and they have most definitely succeeded. Everything is homemade and absolutely delicious. Tastes just like how Nonna use to make! Nonna’s offers the choice of two large dining rooms, one for those seeking a quick bite and one for a more formal, fine dining experience. In each room the walls are lined with photos capturing culture and family creating a warming “at-home” atmosphere. They also have the option of a hot and fast at home delivery for those who want a home cooked me without the cooking.

The Star Tavern in Orange, NJ has been marked to be a traditional family favorite. The love for this place stems from their sauce-y, thin crusted pizza and their lively atmosphere. The Start Tavern’s consistency of quality and affordable prices keep the people coming in. This conveniently placed restaurant is perfect for friends who are looking to catch up on old times or a place for guys night out. Who could have a bad time with some thin crust and beer

Holy Tomato! This restaurant is bursting with color and filled with all pizza everything. Blackwood, NJ‘s Holy Tomato’s thin crust pizzas are vibrant and abstract just like their decor. All of their pies are 18 inches of pure pizza heaven. A must try is their Margarita pizza, topped with fresh mozzarella, beautifully scented basil, Jersey tomatoes and sprinkle of perfectly curated garlic. If you want to spice it up even more they have a fantasy worthy list of different meats and veggies you can add. With great decor, delicious pizza, one of their house wines and maybe even one of their homemade brownies this will be one of your favorite casual spots to go and have some fun.

Amanda Ensing Unveils NYX Cosmetics to #HipNJ!

#HipNJ is in love with the new NYX store at Willowbrook Mall of Wayne!

This one-of-a-kind store combines the worlds of makeup and 21st century digital fun. NYX consumers can get lost at the NYX Beauty Bar, where they can choose from a number of different of-the-moment tutorials (i.e. strobing, ombre lips, etc.) and then re-create those looks using alongside their favorite beauty influencers/vloggers! Consumers can create their own custom eye makeup palettes at the NYX Shadow Bar in-store, or pick the best formula for their pout at the NYX Lip Bar.

We recently chatted with YouTube beauty expert Amanda Ensing on her go-to NYX products, her amazing rise to viral fame, and her experience opening up NYX’s first New Jersey location.

#HipNJ: What are your favorite NYX products to use?
Amanda Ensing: My favorite NYX products are the NYX HD concealer and the NYX liquid suede lipstick in soft spoken.

#HipNJ: Talk about your time unveiling the NYX Willowbrook store.
The Willowbrook store was incredible – it’s literally makeup heaven. I love the concept of the lip and eyeshadow bar because you are able to customize to you are liking.

#HipNJ: What sets NYX product apart from all the rest?
NYX is unique in that it’s always innovative in creating new episodes while staying affordable. The quality is never compromised.

#HipNJ: How did you get started doing makeup tutorials on YouTube?
I got started in my dorm room in college. I was trying to figure out how to do my makeup and wanted to document the process. I would upload a video once a week as I tried out products.

#HipNJ: How did you grow your audience?
I grew my audience by staying consistent. I provide content regularly and I think my passion shines through. I love creating looks and informing beauty lovers of hot new products.

The NYX Willowbrook opening marks the 5th opening in the US (4 in California previously); globally, NYX has opened stores in Canada, France, Italy and Spain. Additional openings are planned throughout the remainder of 2016, with stores in the Southeast and Midwest scheduled in the next few months.
