The company's packages are made with love by a team of people with Down Syndrome, ALS, disabled veterans, and the elderly. One of their signature products is "Magical Color-Changing Lipstick," which changes color based on each person's unique pH and skin temperature. Blush & Whimsy lipsticks were featured at the 2018 Oscars, where Oscar nominees received Magical Lipsticks in their gift bags for the evening.

Appointed by Mayor Tim Keller, Nyika is the first millennial to lead a city department, and the first woman Director of Albuquerque's Department of Aviation.
