I’m in Love with…LA Colors Hot Pink Nail Polish!

LA Colors Hot Pink Nail Polish Dollar Tree

I got this little gem at Dollar Tree! It’s the LA Colors Color Craze Nail Polish in the shade 516. This hot neon pink is one of my favorite colors to paint my nails -that and the color turquoise.

This nail polish performs remarkably well for a $1 nail polish. It only takes two coats to be opaque and dries quickly. It also is easy to remove and doesn’t stain my nails.

If you are looking for a fun new nail polish, I definitely recommend this one! They have lots of other fun neon colors like green and yellow!

XOXO,

What I Think About… NYX That’s the Point Super Edgy Eyeliner!

NYX That's the Point Super Edgy Eyeliner 1

I decided to purchase the NYX That’s the Point Super Edgy Eyeliner. The fat marker and the sturdy tip are supposed to be great for beginners learning how to do the winged eyeliner technique.

At this distance, it doesn’t look terrible. The color is a nice intense black. But if you look closer…

The tip bled a lot, causing blotchiness. It also dragged across my eyelid, instead of gliding, causing an uneven line. I wasn’t too happy with the results.

This product probably works fine if you are an expert at wing eyeliner. But if you are a beginner like me, I wouldn’t recommend this product. It’s a pity, since this eyeliner is marketed as being great for beginners. I will keep you posted when I find one that I like.

This was part of my Walmart Beauty Haul.

XOXO,

Look Glamorous with… NYX Holiday Love Lust Disco Eyeshadow Palette!

NYX Love Lust Disco Let's Groove Eyeshadow Palette 1

When I spotted this little beauty at the store, I knew I had to go back and get it. And boy, I’m glad I did – it was the last one on the shelf when I came back today!

The NYX Love Lust Disco Foil Play Eyeshadow Palette in Let’s Groove is part of NYX Cosmetics’ 2019 Holiday collection. It is a palette made completely of glittery metallic shades. Perfect for the holiday season!

You can buy this eyeshadow palette at Ulta for $10. (They also have two other palettes in the collection -Get Down and Do the Hustle.)

The eyeshadow palette is part of my Drugstore Makeup Wishlist blog post.


Swatches

NYX Love Lust Disco Let's Groove Eyeshadow Palette 2

Here are the swatches. The colors are bronze, gold, blue, green, silver and black.

As you can see the blue, green and black shades are more pigmented than the bronze, gold and silver. The lighter shades would work great as toppers.

The texture is somewhere between a powder and a cream


Look #1

Here’s my first look -I used the bronze and gold eyeshadows to achieve this look. This look is right up my alley!


Look #2

The second look uses the blue and green eyeshadows. I was way out of my comfort zone with this one, but I like how it turned out! It’s very festive.


Look #3

The last look is a smoky eye with the silver and black shades. Let me tell you, the black was so pigmented it was tricky to work with! But with some concealer, I was able to clean the look up nicely.

Which look do you like the best? Comment below!

XOXO,

Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I wanted to pop in and share a few thoughts about this beautiful day and opportunity to be grateful for what we have.

(Today’s images come from Sage Goddess, a wellness and metaphysical online store.)

I love the above quote. It is so true that when we are grateful, we are present. It means that we’re no longer longing (or ashamed) of the past, and no longer coveting (or fearing) the future. We see what we have now, and we remember to enjoy it.

Also, when we give thanks, our abundance increases, just by noticing what we have. It is hard to feel rich and abundant when we focus on what we don’t have. When we focus on what we do have, our lives suddenly become more filled with joy and blessings.

I hope everyone has a wonderful, safe holiday! ❤️🦃❤️

It’s Self Care Time With … Freeman Rose Gummy Bear Mask!

Freeman Melting Sugar Rose Gummy Bear Mask

I bought the Freeman Melting Sugar Rose Gummy Bear face mask, and couldn’t wait to try this one. So, I poured a nice hot bubble bath and applied my new face mask.

It didn’t have the scent I was expecting. I was hoping it would smell like candy, with a hint of rose. It didn’t smell sweet at all -it smelled like old fashioned soap.

That said, it felt good on my skin and left my skin feeling nice and soft afterwards. And for the price it wasn’t bad -three uses and only $1.32 at Walmart! I will probably buy again based on the results. 😊

This face mask was originally mentioned in my Walmart Haul blog post.

XOXO,

Dana Maye 💚

A Little About Me

IMG_20190429_135410514.jpg

It’s been a while since I have done an introduction post! My name is Dana Maye, and I write about all things beauty on my blog. I occasionally write about fashion and crystals too.


Intro To Me Beauty Tastes

—My favorite makeup products are lipstick and highlighters.

—I love face masks -the clay and sleeping kind. I’m not a big fan of sheet masks. They never seem to stick to my face.

— I adore perfume and am still searching for the one. Right now I am wearing Champagne Honey & Apple by Bath and Body Works. I want to find something more unique, though. The search continues…


Intro To Me about me personally

—I’ve been married to my husband Ben for 8 years. We live in North Dakota and recently brought home our Vizsla puppy, Copper.

—I’m part of a Star Wars Cosplay Club with Ben. We do charity work and go to comicons.

—I’m Christian and feel grateful to have a Savior who lived and died for me, and who loves me eternally.

—I’m an ISFP, a type 4 enneagram and a Taurus.


Intro To Me Randomness

— My favorite colors are green and turquoise.

— I love the ocean, trees and mountains.

— I adore sushi, mangoes and chocolate/peanut butter.

— I like thunderstorms and rainy days.


So, welcome to my blog! I hope you stay for a bit and check out some of my posts.

Take A Peek At My November Empties… Suave Body Wash!

Suave Body Wash Empties.jpgThis post has been a while in the making. I just finished my third Suave Body Wash, and have three empties to review.

My favorite of the three was Wild Cherry Blossom. It reminded me of the Bath and Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom scent my sister Heather used to wear. It’s soft, floral and beautiful.

I liked Sweet Pea & Violet as well. I didn’t smell any of the violet -it just smells like your standard sweet pea scent. That said, it is lovely.

The Ocean Breeze body wash, while a nice unisex, clean scent, wasn’t for me. I prefer fruity, sweet and floral scents.

Suave Body Wash is my go to body wash. It cleans well, lathers decently and smells nice. It is a thin formula, so I have to use more product than other brands, but it is pretty good for the price -$1.88 at Walmart.

XOXO,

Dana Maye 💚
