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.)

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,

Is It Worth It? …CoverGirl Electric Green Eyeliner!

CoverGirl Defining Moment Electric Green 1.jpg

I decided to try a unique eyeliner. It’s the CoverGirl Defining Moment Eyeliner in Electric Green. You can purchase on Amazon for $5.99.

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

I wish the color was a little more vibrant. It barely shows up on my eyelids. I will say that it makes for a super subtle, natural look. It also pairs well with my eye color.

The formula is super creamy and almost a little crumbly. It does glide on smoothly, which is nice.

Overall, would I purchase again? Probably not. I’d give it a 2.5 out of 5.

XOXO,

I Was Surprised… Maybelline Color Tattoo Vintage Purple Eyeshadow!

Maybelline Color Tattoo Vintage People Cream Eyeshadow 1

Happy New Year! Today I am reviewing the Maybelline Color Tattoo cream eyeshadow in the shade Vintage Purple. It sells on Amazon for $5.40.

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

I was a little disappointed, as the shade on Amazon looked like a metallic lilac color. It ended up being a gray matte with the slightest hint of purple. But…

It turned out to be a really pretty, natural shade on me! It’s a dusky gray and really brings out the blue in my eyes.

I applied with my finger, and it wasn’t super creamy -it was almost tacky. But that’s a good thing in terms of cream eyeshadow. It means it will stay in place and last longer.

While it wasn’t what I expected, I ended up liking this eyeshadow. I will definitely get some use out of it!

XOXO,

Brand New Beauty Release… L’Oreal Rouge Signature Matte Lip Ink!

L'Oreal Rouge Signature I Achieve Lip Ink 1.jpg

I tried out one of L’Oreal’s newest lip products! It’s the L’Oreal Rouge Signature Matte Lip Ink in the shade I Achieve. It’s a pretty peachy orange.

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

According to the L’Oreal Website, the Rouge Signature Lip Ink  is a “lightweight matte colored ink with a stain-like feel and the color impact of a liquid lipstick. It’s long-lasting wear with less texture and more color.”

L'Oreal Rouge Signature I Achieve Lip Ink 2

I love the formula. It’s super lightweight and velvety -I could barely feel it on my lips. And yet, it lasted through five hours and one meal. Pretty impressive for a lip product!

I would love to try the Rouge Signature Lip Ink in different shades!

You can buy this lip stain on Amazon for $7.48.

XOXO,

Dana Maye 💚

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 💚

Sparkle and Shine With… Physician’s Formula Butter Highlighter!

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.

Nice and Natural… Maybelline Baby Lips!

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.

Makeup Worn:

  • L’Oréal Infallible 24 Hour Fresh Wear Foundation
  • Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer
  • Milani Silky Matte Bronzer
  • Milani Rose Powder Blush
  • CoverGirl Lash Blast Mascara
  • Urban Decay 24 Hour Eyeliner
  • Two Faced Pineapple Paradise Highlight/Bronzer
  • Fenty MVP Brow Pencil
  • Physician’s Formula Butter Highlight

Adding to My Makeup Routine… Fenty Beauty Brow MVP Pencil!

I decided to try a new step in my beauty routine -using a brow pencil! I went to Sephora, and a lovely associate helped me pick out a shade. We looked at several colors from different lines, and went with True Red from the Fenty Beauty Brow MVP line. It retails for $20 at Sephora.

I really like the product. The tip is nice and fine for penciling, and the formula is smooth and creamy. It blends well and looks very natural. I like the mini brush head on the other side. It helps smooth and blur the color.

The associate pointed toward a darker shade than I have worn in the past. While I’m not used to such a bold brow look, I think the shade matches perfectly. Below are two pictures – one inside and one outside, to show how my brows look in different lighting.

(Sorry about closing my eyes. It was bright outside!)

Overall, I am very pleased with my new brow pencil. I think it will look especially nice with bolder lipsticks.

If you are looking for a high quality brow pencil that comes in lots of shades, the Fenty Beauty Brow MVP is a great choice!
