Anastasia Beverly Hills Maya Mia Eyeshadow Palette Photos, Swatches and Review

Hey Lovelies! Ahhh yes another eyeshadow palette review! What can I say I just love eyeshadow palettes and I think now I can say I am a palette collector. I can never turn down a nice looking eyeshadow palette lol. I bring you yet another eyeshadow palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills called The Maya Mia Palette. For all the neutral lovers out there this one you will love. The Maya Mia Palette is a similar neutral palette like the Anastasia Beverly Hill Tamanna Palette which you can check out my review here . The Maya Mia Palette is another palette you an use to become comfortable in wearing more brighter colors in your makeup look. Hope you enjoy this review ! :)

The Anastasia Beverly Hills Maya Mia Palette retails for $29.00.The palette comes with 10 velvety shades. 

The packaging is cute. I love the different patterns and color selections of the packaging.

Comes with 5 makeup look guides to create from.

The colors sienna, caramel and fresh peach are my favorite eyeshadows in the palette.

Nude -is a beige color.
Deep Brown-is a dark brown color.
Sienna- is brown orangey color.
Warm Taupe - is a light grey color.
Vanilla-is a white color perfect for using it as a highlight on your brow bone.
Aqua- a baby blue color.
Fresh Peach is a peachy pink color.
Glisten is a champagne color.
Caramel is a light brown color great as a transition color.
Gold Bar is a light yellow gold color. I like to use this color near my inner tear ducts.

 Quick Look using the Maya Mia Palette

Over All, I love the Maya Mia Eyeshadow Palette. The Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadows are consistent in Anastasia's other eyeshadow palettes that she released. The eyeshadows are velvety, have good pigmentation and last about 7 hours. This is a perfect palette to test out some colorful eyeshadows to incorporate in your eye makeup. The Maya Mia Palette is affordable palette and I believe some shadows if not all are part of Anastasia's single shadows available on her website. If I had to buy eye shadow singles from this palette they would be sienna, caramel, fresh peach, vanilla, and warm taupe. These colors are gorgeous.

Do you own this palette or any of Anastasia Beverly Hills Palette? What colors do you like from this palette? Leave a comment below.

You can find this palette at Lord and Taylors and Dillard's website.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Rum Raisin Review and Swatch

Hello Lovelies! As you know by now the pantone color of the year is marsala. Marsala is beautiful different shades of burgundy colors which I love and compliments every skin tone which is nice. When I was looking through my lipsticks, I found the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in rum raisin and thought marsala! This has become my go to lipstick. Hope you enjoy my review !

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick In Rum Raisin(creme) retails at $7.99 and sometimes cheaper depending where you buy it from . 

Packaging is simple yet classy.

This color is just so beautiful! 


Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick- Rum Raisin 535(creme) which is a mid tone marsala shade. Compliments every skin tone.


      I just love their line because it is so moisturizing, givesthe lips a nice shine and even after you take it off it leaves your lips nice and soft. In addition, it feels light weight on the lips. I own many other lipsticks from their in which you can check out here. The Revlon Super Lustrous shade in rum raisin is truly a beautiful marsala shade to own. It compliments every skin tone. The lipstick is a creme texture and glides on to the lips like butter. It wears for a decent 4-5 hours if you eat light, but if you were to eat greasy foods then it will just come right off. I have no problem reapplying. Once this shade runs out I will definitely buy another,  or I just might go and buy a back up right away :) I love this shade and this has been my go to lipstick lately. Before you spend crazy amount of money looking for a marsala lipstick in a high end brand,  you might want to check out the drugstores first. 

Hope you enjoyed this review and see you lovelies in my next blog post.

This palette has colors for everyone whether your looking for an all neutral look or if your adventurous you can do a neutral look with a pop color. The beautiful packaging and beautiful eye shadows colors make this palette a nice edition to your makeup collection. Scroll down for review and swatches. I hope you enjoy this review! :)

The packaging is beautiful and I love the gold and maroon colors. This is one classy looking palette.

Palette comes with five makeup look cards to create eyeshadow looks from. I think it's great for beginners if you do not know what color combos to choose from.

The eyeshadow brush is nice quality.

The eyeshadows are buttery and soft with good pigmentation.

Fresh is a vanilla color.
Blush is a champagne color.
Venezia is a teal blue color.
Gilded is a rusty gold color.
Custom is a taupe grey.
Sangria is a brugundy color.

Overall, I love the Tamanna Palette by Anastasia Hills. I am a fan of Anastasia Beverley Hills eyeshadows and this palette does not disappoint. The eyeshadows are buttery and have great pigmentation. When applying the eyeshadows they blend very well together and last up to 7 hours before showing signs of fading. This palette is perfect for someone who is scared to venture out into colorful eyeshadows. You have neutral and a few colorful ones. You can always take the blue teal for example and pop it under the lower lash line for a pop of color to your neutral look. The packaging is beautiful and will be a nice edition to your makeup collection.

You can find the Anastasia Beverly Hills Anastasia Palette at Amazon. I tried looking in Ulta, Sephora and Nordstrum websites, but is not available. The eyeshadows in this palette are available as singles at Anastasia Beverly Hills Website.

Hope you enjoyed the review and see you lovelies in my next blog post.

Argan Oil Hair Mask + 100% Pure Argan Oil by Insta Natural Review

Powered by Brandbacker*
Hey there lovelies  hope you are well! Argan oil has taken the beauty industry by storm. They are in products such has lip balms, oils and shampoos just to name a few. Today I will be reviewing two products from Insta Natural which are Argan Oil Hair Mask And 100 % Pure Argan Oil. I am new to trying Argan oil so I was happy to try out these products. Hope you enjoy my review!

Argan Oil Hair Mask retails at $17.95(8Fl oz) . This is a deep conditioning treatment to help maintain healthy hair and restore dry and damaged hair. In addition, it also strengthens hair to defend against heat damage.The main ingredients are argan oil, amino acid complex, coconut oil, shea butter, and vitamin B5.


It has a nice thick and creamy texture with a sweet scent.


Over All I love the Argan Oil Hair Mask by Insta Natural. According to the directions, you can use this as an everyday conditioner or as a leave in conditioner. I used this as an everyday conditioner. I have been using this product for over a week and it has made my hair so much more voluminous, healthy, soft and shiny. I recently dyed my hair and this argan oil hair mask is just what my hair will need to help bring my hair back to a healthy state. It has a nice sweet scent and is thick in texture. I was afraid this product would weigh down my thin hair, but it actually gave it more volume which I love and need for my hair. This product is a must have to give your hair the care it needs.

You can find the Argan Oil Hair Mask on Amazon.

100% Pure Argan Oil retails at $17.95(4fl oz). This is a multi purpose oil that can be used for the face, skin, hair and nails. The 100% Pure argan oil by Insta Natural is certified organic, cold pressed  unrefined and all natural argan oil.

It has a pump which I love because you can control how much product comes out.


I really love the 100% Argan Oil by Insta Natural. Since I suffer from dry skin, this really helped to make my skin to be more moisturized and soft. I applied about 3- 4 pumps worth of product after I cleansed my face. I did this twice a day. Once in the morning and at night before bed. When I woke up my face was glowing and moisturized. This has been my go to moisturizer. The best thing about this product is that you can not only use it for you face, but also for your nails, hair and you can mix in a few drops into your moisturizer cream. Since it is winter I also tend to get dry hands so I have been applying the argan oil on my hands and cuticles to keep them moisturized and protect it from the cold weather. As I mentioned earlier, I dyed my hair recently, so I also have been applying in to my ends to bring moisture and repair to hair. I think this is a great product that is affordable and you get so much product for the price. 

You can find this product at Amazon.

Hope you enjoyed this review and see you in my next blog post!

Makeup Geek's Vegas Lights Eyeshadow Palette Photos, Swatches, and Review

Hello my lovelies! Today on my blog I will be reviewing Makeup Geek's Vegas Lights Eyeshadow Palette. This palette went on sale around fall and have to say gold and burgundy colors is what made me purchase this palette. Lately, I have been gravitating towards burgundy, gold and berry colored eyeshadows. They are perfect to wear all year round whether you want to achieve a fall or summer look. Hope you enjoy my review!

Makeup Geek Vegas Lights Eyeshadow Palette retails at $37.99. The eyeshadows range from shimmer to matte finishes and include 5 exclusive eyeshadows and the dark brown eyeshadow called Bada Bing from her permanent line.

The packaging is suppose to mimic Las Vegas skyline.

Cardboard packaging is small and sleek, however the mirror flops down.

My favorite colors are Sin City, Roulette and Dessert Sands which works as an excellent transition color. Mirage is a wonderful highlight eye shadow shade that is very pigmented.

I love how this palette has different tones of gold eyeshadows. Gold never goes out of style. 


Over All, I love the Makeup Geek's Vegas Lights Eyeshadow Palette. The color have amazing pigmentation, are so velvety and blends seemlessly into each other. You honestly do not need a base because the pigmentation is wonderful. I wore these eyeshadow for 7 hours and still the colors remained vibrant with no signs of fading or creasing. I hope makeup geeks put these colors in her permanent line. I wasn't too crazy over the packaging. The design is ok and the mirror flops down, but that is ok because it's the eyeshadows that count and they are amazing. The price point is a bit expensive $37  for six eyeshadow, but it is work getting because of the quality of the eyeshadows and the sleek packaging makes it travel friendly. I highly recommend this palette if you love fall colors such as golds and burgundy colors. Hurry and purchase because this is a limited edition palette.

You can find the Makeup Geek's Vegas Lights  Eyeshadow here.

Have a great day/night lovelies and see you in my next blog post.
