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.

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!

I’m In Love With… Maybelline Sensational Copper Spark Lipstick!

Maybelline Sensationals Copper Spark Lipstick 1

I wanted to try a metallic lipstick, so I picked up this fun shade. It’s the Maybelline Sensational Matte Metallics Lipstick in Copper Spark. You can buy it on Amazon for $5.64.

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

It’s a beautiful burnt orange – copper hybrid, and I love the color. I think it pairs well with my hair.

It doesn’t have a long wear time – it only lasted about three hours when I wore it. That said, this would be fun to wear to an event or for pictures. I love this lipstick!

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,

Sparkle and Shine With … Maybelline Master Chrome Purple Highlighter!

Maybelline Master Chrome Purple 100 Highlighter 1.jpg

I thought it would be fun to try a purple highlighter! Highlighters are a relatively recent addition to my beauty routine, and I love them! Today I am reviewing the Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter in the shade 100.

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

Maybelline Master Chrome Purple 100 Highlighter 2

I love this highlighter! It is definitely a bolder choice than my Physician’s Formula Butter Highlighter. It is both glittery and metallic, and brings a fun vibe to my makeup. You can definitely see the purple sheen, which I was hoping for.

This would look great as part of a fun festival-inspired look or even a glam, New Year’s look! I think it would also be fun as an eyeshadow.

You can buy it on Amazon for $7.66.

XOXO,

Dana Maye 💚

My Drugstore Makeup Wishlist!

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.

XOXO,

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

Take A Peek At My October Empties!

It’s empties time again! I love sharing what products I use up, and what I think of them. Without further ado, let’s dive in!


L’Oréal Sleek It Iron Heat Spray

Price: $3.97, Amazon

This is my second bottle of this heat protection spray. It works well in keeping my hair from getting damaged when I blow dry my hair. For the price, I think this works great!

Verdict: A Beauty Must Have!


Maybelline Snapscara

Price: $5.84, Amazon

This mascara is supposed to be easy to put on and easy to take off. Sadly, neither was the case. The wand was awkward to use, and I had to scrub just as hard to take off. The volume was decent, but lashes didn’t hold a curl.

Verdict: Bottom of the Waste Basket!


Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara

Price: $9.99, Walmart

I definitely liked this mascara much better. I like the wand, and the formula gives good length. That said, there’s not a lot of volume. It’s not surprising considering it’s advertised as a lengthening mascara. I love to layer it with L’Oréal Paradise or Two Faced Better Than Sex mascara. On its own, it’s average.

Verdict: Meh… It’s Okay



L’Oréal Infallible 24 Hour Fresh Wear Foundation

Price: $11.97, Walmart

I am on my second bottle of this foundation. It makes my skin look smooth and lasts all day. Plus I love the SPF 25 in it.

Verdict: A Beauty Must Have!


Juicy Couture Perfume

Price: $58, Ulta

This scent is a classic. It smells sweet and fruity, which are my favorite notes in a perfume. Ben says I smell like peaches when I wear it. I like varying my perfumes, so I will be buying something else next time. That said, it’s a good choice.

Verdict: Not Too Shabby!


Pudaier Glitter Liquid Eyeshadow

Price: $5, Wish

I love this so much that I already bought a replacement. It has a punch of glitter and looks great layered with other eyeshadows. You can read a more in-depth beauty review here.

Verdict: A Beauty Must Have!


Glam Glow Supermud Clearing Treatment

Price: $59 (Full Size), Sephora

I got this sample for my birthday as a Sephora beauty insider member last year. This mask is spendy, but does do a pretty good job at spot treating acne. I can’t use it as a full face mask, as it irritates my skin. So there is that…

Verdict: Not Too Shabby!


Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream

Price: $68 (full size), Sephora

I also got this as a Sephora birthday present. Sadly I wasn’t impressed. It did a good job as a basic moisturizer, but nothing more. For the price, I don’t think it’s worth the money.

Verdict: Meh… It’s Okay
