My Favorite Moisturizer… Garnier SkinActive Moisture Rescue Gel Cream!

When it comes to face creams, I like two different kinds -thick and creamy, and light and gel-like. This one falls in the gel category.

I like this face moisturizer for the day, as it absorbs into the skin quickly, and goes well under sunscreen and makeup.

It has a nice, clean scent and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. A little bit goes a long way, which is nice, as the container has only an ounce of product.

You can buy the Garnier SkinActive Moisture Rescue Gel Cream on Amazon for $6.62. I chose the Combination/Oily version.

XOXO,

Dana Maye 💚

My New Gorgeous Eyeshadow… Revlon Color Stay Caramel Creme Eyeshadow!

I found a new favorite eyeshadow! It’s the Revlon Color Stay Creme Eyeshadow in the shade Caramel. It costs only $5.09 on Amazon!

(This eyeshadow was part of my Amazon Beauty Haul.)

It’s an easy to apply metallic bronze and looks stunning. It’s perfect for a glam look like in this picture, or for a quick 5 minute makeup day. It comes with a built in brush that makes applying the eyeshadow stress free. I’m in love! ❤️❤️❤️

XOXO,

Dana Maye 💚

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.

NYX That's the Point Super Edgy Eyeliner 2

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

NYX That's the Point Super Edgy Eyeliner 3

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,

A Little About Me

IMG_20190429_135410514.jpg

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.

I Adore…NYX Matte Lip in Natural!

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.

XOXO,

Dana Maye 💚
