    Violet Voss Holy Grail Palette - Review, Swatches, and Eye Looks

    Happy Thursday! I hope you’re all having an amazing week so far. Today I’m bringing you our second palette review in the #ThrowbackThursday Series. We’re talking about the Violet Voss Holy Grail palette this week. I dug this out of my collection and have been testing it out all week, so let’s get right into the review, swatches, and eye looks!

They originally sold lashes, but have expanded their line to include eyeshadows, liquid lipstick, glitters, and highlighters as well. The Violet Voss Holy Grail palette was their first palette release. I ordered it during the first launch last year. It sold out in a matter of minutes! Now that it’s been out for awhile, you can usually find it in stock on their website.

    Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette Review, Swatches, and Looks – #ThrowbackThursday Series

    #ThrowbackThursday Series Palette Review. The original Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. Review, swatches, and look ideas.

    Today I’m starting my #TBT series, where every Thursday I’ll be posting a full review and eye looks using products that are older and haven’t gotten much love from me lately.

    We’re starting things off with a classic, the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. This baby was the first high-end product I ever purchased. I remember going into Sephora when I first got into makeup, dreaming of the time when I could afford to splurge on something that wasn’t from Walgreens. I was working as a barista at the time, and I saved up all my tips from two months to buy this palette.

    So obviously this palette is very special to me. It sparked my love for eyeshadow palettes, and thus began my need to collect everything in a pretty packaging.

    Stepping Out of My Comfort Zone (And LOVING It) | Guest Blog

    Posted in Beauty, Guest Blogger

    I’m sitting on my front porch, dog by my side, thinking about how I would like to write this blog post.  How do I want it formatted? How long or short should it be? How can I engage readers?  And then it comes to me: be yourself.

    First off, thank you so much to Buzz Beeuty for allowing me to create a guest blog on their account; I love the work that they do… So this is quite the honor.

    Let me start off by introducing myself.  Hi, my name is Danielle.  I am 23 years old, I like long walks to the fridge and when gnats bother me.  Just kidding, lol.  But seriously, I loooove animals (really love cats) and I have grown a loving relationship with makeup and all things related to makeup. I have a YouTube channel called DaniLunes that I just recently started, about four months ago, and I’m excited to announce that I am freaking loving it.  I thought I would share my story with you, in hopes that I can reach at least one person who felt like I did about starting my own channel.

    Posted in Anti-Haul, Beauty

    If you’re anything like me, you stalk the Sephora and Ultra “New Releases” section at least once a week, right? No? Just me? Well, either way, it’s one of my favorite past times!

    As I was exploring all the new goodies, I decided it’d be fun to do a quick post about the products I’m not going to be buying, and why. This is going to specifically be eyeshadow palettes, but let me know if I should do some more of these!

    Boho Chic Cosmetics | Review and Swatches

    Hey y’all! I am so excited to bring you today’s review!

    I recently received some items from Boho Chic Cosmetics. Below is some information about the brand!

     Boho Chic Cosmetics is founded by Yeiza Reyes, a green blogger who created the blog Boho Chic Meets Organics. The Boho Chic Meets Organics blog was a space to share her writing about her farm, eco-living, and green beauty products. Beyond blogging, Yeiza also worked with brands and companies to test and formulate natural beauty products. She enjoyed helping brands to create safe and eco-conscious products for all types of consumers…. Boho Chic Cosmetics mineral makeup is handmade in small batches. The colors and collection are inspired by art, travels, and the maker’s flower farm in Pennsylvania.
    All products are made with the finest and safest ingredients and are always vegan and cruelty-free. We never use dyes, synthetic ingredients, or harmful preservatives in our products!… We love gorgeous packaging, but at Boho Chic Cosmetics, we also like to keep it simple because it creates less waste in our environment. Each product incorporates beautiful flower art inspired by the beauty of Mother Nature. – Source

    Yeiza was kind enough to send me four full size products and two samples. I received:

    • Lavender eyeshadow
    • School of Fish eyeshadow
    • Setting Powder
    • Cassis Violette Macaron {Parisian Macarons Lip & Cheek Collection}
    • Sunflower eyeshadow sample
    • Tulips blush/eyeshadow sample

    September 2016 Beauty Favorites! Shopping my stash and rekindling old loves.

    Posted in Beauty, Favorites

    Hello bumble bees! I’m so happy it’s October! I’m not a die-hard Halloween fan, but we’re one month closer to my favorite season! (Christmas!!!!)

    September was a very long, very weird month for me. I am still new to Germany and spent most of my month alone as my husband had some training to do across the country. No biggie! Just meant I was extra busy keeping up with my pups and didn’t have much time for a full face of makeup. That being said, I don’t have as many favorites as I’d like this month. I did discover some awesome products that help create a quick makeup look that I would love to share with you today! None of these products are new to me. In fact, I’ve been shopping my stash quite a bit as of late and I’ve fallen back in love with some gret products. So if you’d like to discover what I used and recommend last month, please keep on reading.
