Take A Peek At My April Empties!

Drugstore Empties April 2020 1

I have been saving up my empties for a few months, and now I finally have enough for a post! Today, I have some hair care, skincare, makeup, and others.


Garnier Whole Blends Honey Treasures Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner

Drugstore Empties April 2020 2

My first two items are a shampoo and conditioner that I love. This is my second time purchasing, and it smells sooo good! It keeps my hair healthy, and the shampoo suds nicely. I am using a new shampoo and conditioner duo next, to shake things up again, but I will definitely be repurchasing these little babies.

I originally wrote a blog post on this Garnier Shampoo and Conditioner when I first purchased.

Price: $5.49 (Value Size) at Walmart

Verdict: A Budget Beauty Must Have!


Spring Valley Adult Gummy Prenatal Vitamins

Drugstore Empties April 2020 3

This is more of a wellness product than a beauty product, but I wanted to include these vitamins because I love them so much. I love that they have DHA in addition to the usual Folic Acid. The flavors are orange, lemon and strawberry, and are delicious. I like prenatal vitamins, because they are a lot easier on my stomach than traditional vitamins. I definitely recommend!

Price: $7.88, Walmart

Verdict: A Wellness Musthave!


Drunk Elephant Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser

Drugstore Empties April 2020 4

I got this cleanser as part of a Sephora birthday gift set. This… was a decent cleanser. It definitely cleaned my face well, and didn’t dry it out. That said, I wasn’t wowed. And for the price, I expect it to be way better than a drug store cleanser. I actually prefer the Cetaphil Cleanser that I am using currently. So, would I purchase? Probably not.

Price: $32 (5 oz), Sephora

Verdict: Meh, It’s Okay…


Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water

Drugstore Empties April 2020 5

This is my second time repurchasing this micellar water. I like using this for removing my eye makeup, as it doesn’t irritate my eyes, which a lot of makeup removers do. It also works well with removing liquid lipsticks. While I love this micellar water, I am interested in trying a cleansing balm to remove my makeup. That said, if you are into micellar waters, this is definitely a good bet.

Price: $6.96, Walmart

Verdict: A Budget Beauty Must-Have!


L’Oreal Infallible 24 Hour Fresh Wear Foundation

Drugstore Empties April 2020 6

This is my go-to foundation! I originally reviewed this L’Oreal Foundation back in January. I am on my third bottle now, and don’t plan on changing foundations any  time soon. I love how it makes my complexion look even, but doesn’t cake or get heavy. It also lasts most of the day. It works great for normal to dry skin. If you have combo or oily skin, I would recommend the L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation, which I reviewed in October 2018.

Price: $11.96, Walmart

Verdict: A Budget Must-Have!


Crest 3D Stain Eraser Toothpaste

Drugstore Empties April 2020 7

I grew up with Arm & Hammer toothpaste, but decided to try a whitening toothpaste. It worked well as a toothpaste, but I did not see any whitening results. If you are looking for some teeth whitening, I would recommend some whitening  trays from your dentist. Sometimes, a professional is exactly what you need for results.

Price: $2.97, Walmart

Verdict: Meh… It’s okay.


And that’s it for for today’s empties post! I love writing these posts, because I think it is more helpful to see a review on a completely used up product, than on a first impressions post. I hope you found it helpful as well!

What I Think About… Maybelline The City Mini Palette In Chill Brunch Neutrals

Maybelline The City Mini Pallete Chill Brunch Neutrals 1

I decided to pick up a new eyeshadow palette! I know some women prefer larger palettes with a great color selection, but I prefer smaller, more portable palettes. Today’s eyeshadow is one of Maybelline’s City Mini Palettes -this one is the Chill Brunch Neutrals palette.

Maybelline The City Mini Pallete Chill Brunch Neutrals 2

To be honest, I was a little disappointed in the fourth and fifth shades, the bronze and gunmetal shades. While they showed up metallic in a finger swatch, the colors were barely noticeable on my lids with a brush. That said, I love the cream, the rose gold, the lilac and the plum shades. They are all very pretty.

Here is the super natural look I created, using the rose gold and plum shades.

If you’re looking for a palette with a huge punch of color, this is not the palette for you. If, however, you are looking for a palette that is super natural and perfect for daytime looks, you’ll probably enjoy this little rendition. I know I will be getting some use out of it!

e.l.f. Liquid Glitter Eyeshadow in Disco Queen

Elf Liquid Glitter Eyeshadow Disco Queen 1

Today’s post is about the e.l.f. line, called Liquid Glitter Eyeshadow. I picked up this little baby for $5 at Walmart, which is a great price compared to the Stila Liquid Eyeshadow. It’s also cheaper than the Pudaier Liquid Eyeshadow as well, although the e.l.f. line comes in less colors. This silver eyeshadow shade is called Disco Queen.

Similar to most metallic liquid eyeshadows on the market, it comes with a doe foot applicator.

Elf Liquid Glitter Eyeshadow Disco Queen 3

The color is definitely very metallic! It looks like sheer glitter in the dark, but in the light, reflects pure metallic silver. This is a new fun piece to my collection.

Elf Liquid Glitter Eyeshadow Disco Queen 4

As you can see, I like to add the liquid eyeshadow to the center of my lid. It creates what is called a halo eye, and is a makeup look that I really enjoy. In fact, I would now call it my signature look!

Elf Liquid Glitter Eyeshadow Disco Queen 5

And there you have it! I definitely recommend this eyeshadow!

(In case you were wondering, I am also wearing Maybelline’s The City Mini Palette in Chill Brunch Neutrals.)

Pucker Up with … Rimmel Stay Satin Liquid Lip!

Rimmel Stay Satin Liquid Lip Color It Girl 1

I decided to pick up a couple Rimmel makeup products, as my Ibotta app was offering coupons for them. One of the items I picked up was a liquid lipstick. The other was an eyeshadow palette.

Today I am reviewing the Rimmel Stay Satin Liquid Lip Color in the shade It Girl.

Based on the name, I was expecting this product to be a pigmented gloss. It ended up being a matte liquid lipstick, which was strange.

That said, the formula is super comfortable. It doesn’t feel drying at all, unlike most liquid lipsticks I have tried.

Rimmel Stay Satin Liquid Lip Color It Girl 2

I love the color. It’s a wonderful, gingery nude, which works well with my hair color. Overall I am pleased with my purchase!

XOXO,

What I Think About… Hard Candy Stroke of Gorgeous Eyeliner!

Hard Candy Deep Sea Eyeliner 2

I decided to try a turquoise eyeliner! This one is the Hard Candy Stroke of Gorgeous Eyeliner in the shade Deep Sea. It costs $5 at Walmart.

(This eyeliner was part of my Walmart Beauty Haul.)

Hard Candy Deep Sea Eyeliner 1

Sadly, it’s not super visible either. It’s better than the CoverGirl Electric Green Eyeliner, but not by much. Also, the pencil is hard and painfully drags across the skin.

I think I will try a colored liquid eyeliner next time. Maybe it will have more pigment.

XOXO,

Dana Maye 💚

My Newest Addition… Milani Color Statement Lip Liner!

Milani Color Statement True Red Lip Liner 1.jpg

To go with my NYX Perfect Red lipstick, I decided to buy a matching lip liner. It is the Milani Color Statement Lip Liner in the shade: True Red. You can buy it on
Amazon for $3.19.

This lip liner was part of my Amazon Beauty Haul.)

Milani Color Statement True Red Lip Liner 2

I found this pencil to be easy to work with. It is nice and pigmented. It also glides across my lips instead of dragging. The lip liner is nice and creamy and blends well.

I think the overall result turned out nice!

Sparkle and Shine With… Pacifica Ice Baby Highlighter!

Pacifica Ice Baby Highlighter 1.jpg

I found a new highlighter Pacifica Highlighter in the shade: Ice Baby. You can buy it for $6.99 on Amazon. Pacifica is a natural brand that makes vegan and cruelty free products.

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

Pacifica Ice Baby Highlighter 2

It’s definitely more subtle than the Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter. If you look closely, it has a slight pink sheen, which isn’t noticable in the pan. I love this shade and will be using it often!

XOXO,

Dana Maye 💚
