My name is Dana Maye Buchmiller, pronounced "Bookmiller," and I love to write. I have a beauty and style blog, DanaMaye.com. I love finding budget beauty finds as well as thrifting. I also share posts about rocks and crystals, and my beloved puppy, Copper.
I went on a shopping haul at Walmart! Sometimes you just need a little treat. 😊 I brought a lot of face masks, a few eyeliners, a couple of lipsticks and a bottle of bubble bath. I will be reviewing all of these items in the future.

I thought it would be fun to put together a drugstore beauty wishlist for this 2019 Holiday Season. All items can be bought at Walmart.
The first item is the Physician’s Formula Powder Palette Blush in the shade: Blushing Rose. I like that it is a cool toned pink. It would pair well with a purple highlighter that I plan on purchasing in the future. You can buy it for $6.15 on Amazon, or $6.39 at Walmart.
I absolutely love this hair serum! It’s A 10 Miracle Leave-in Product works as a leave-in conditioner, a balm to tame flyaways and a heat protectant. You can buy it for $22.54 on Amazon or $24.99 at Walmart.
Next is the Profusion Mattes Mini Artistry Eyeshadow Palette. The various shades of brown would go great with my blue eyes, and the pan sizes are generous. You can buy it for $5.95 on Amazon or $4.98 at Walmart.
The Maybelline Sensations Peach Poppy lipstick is next on my wishlist. I love peachy coral lipsticks, and this shade looks perfect for me. I love the creamy, satin feel of these lipsticks. You can buy it for $5.11 on Amazon or $6.99 at Walmart.
The NYX Love Lust Disco Let’s Groove eyeshadow palette caught my eye when I was at Walmart last trip. It has beautiful shades in bronze, gold, green, blue, silver and black that I would love to try. I hope the metallic shades are as pigmented as they look in the pan. You can buy it at Walmart for $9.98.
The Physician’s Formula Eye Booster Liquid Eyeliner in the shade: Deep Brown is last on my list. I am on the search for a brown liquid eyeliner, as it would look more natural on my fair skin. You can buy it on Amazon for $6.49 or at Walmart for $8.74.
My Walmart now stocks NYX products, so I was excited to try out one of their matte lipsticks. I chose the shade Natural.
Natural is a pretty mauve color -one of my favorite lipstick shades to wear.
The formula is creamy and easy to work with. I like that it feels nice on the lips -it has a matte finish without being drying. It has a wear time of 5 hours as long as you don’t eat anything, like your typical lipstick.
One trick is to make your lipstick stay on longer is to blot your lips with a tissue after applying. This will create a pretty lip stain.
I’m excited to try more shades from this line!
You can buy the NYX Matte Lipstick in Natural for $2.99 on Amazon.
I am so incredibly happy to have a new dog. His name is Copper, and he is a Vizsla purebred. We having been waiting for almost a year for this little guy to join our family, and he brings a lot of joy to our home.
He likes to take naps in the morning, play in the afternoon and snuggle in the evening. He can be a bit of handful at times, as he is a high energy breed, but he is so worth it. Potty training is going well, which is a plus!
He is 10 weeks old and currently 12 pounds. He will grow to be about 60 pounds, a medium size dog. But according to everyone I have spoken to, he will still consider himself a lap dog when fully grown! 😂 Vizslas are known for being “Velcro dogs” and little shadows, as they love constant attention, affection and interaction. They want to be with you and are great companions. I’m so grateful to have such a cuddly dog. 🐕🐾
One of the newest additions to my makeup routine is using highlighter. I love the shine it gives to my cheekbones. Today’s post is about the Butter Highlighter by Physician’s Formula in the shade Pearl.
It’s a warm white color and looks natural on my skin tone. I love to use it on the high points of my cheekbones, right under my brow bone and the inner corners of my eyes. It gives a natural glow. It’s not metallic or glittery which is nice for natural looks (although I like metallic highlights too.)
As you can tell, I have already hit pan on this highlighter, because I love it so much. ❤️ You can buy the Physician’s Formula Butter Highlighter in Pearl on Amazon for $4.38.
I wanted to share with you a body lotion that I love. I bought it at TJ Maxx for $8, but you can find it on Amazon for $16.99. The bottle is 32 ounces, which is a great price per ounce at either price.
This lotion works great for reducing redness and razor burn after shaving my legs, which is what I primarily bought it for. It is a medium strength lotion and works well in the summer and fall for skin hydration.
I didn’t notice any firming, but then I wasn’t expecting any change.
Overall, Rosen Apothecary’s Collagen Body Lotion is a great lotion, and I definitely recommend it.
I recently bought a new lip product. It’s a classic -the Maybelline Baby Lips in the shade Cherry Me. I am a big fan of tinted lip balms so this is perfect for me. The color is a sheer pinky red, which is fun.
I love the slip to it. It’s moisturizing, without feeling sticky, goopy, waxy or greasy.
The only thing I wish it had was some SPF in the formula, but that’s okay. I can layer it with an SPF lip balm when going outside.
