Poison Ivy by Milan Rowe makeup. Tell me glamour-puss What’s your poison? 💚

Hello beautiful 🥰 Happy new week to you! I trust you are well. I am well grateful for all the blessings I have in my life and for you lovie that take the time to read this post from the bottom of my heart thank you! 🤗 let’s jump into today’s post!

Milan Rowe Makeup

Simona Milan is the founder of the brand, vegan, and cruelty-free. Her products are suitable for all skin colors. This is a black-owned business and in their campaings, they use models of all shapes and sizes which to me is awesome! I leave you the link to their website here.


The palette Poison Ivy

Overall is beautiful mostly green but a grunge green with colors that go very well with the color story this palette is a collab with doodles by the bunny who is a known palette and color story makeup designer.

The mattes

The mattes are beautiful, they feel creamy and soft, however, I did find some patchiness when blending that you can see in my photos below, I understand that happens for a few reasons could be I over blended or the primer I used did not get along with the matte lol this happened especially with the darker-toned mattes like Don’t Be Rash And Not Today Batman. I love the names by the way! Also they I needed to build them up since the payoff was not as intense for these colors and I mean all the mattes but overall they are beautiful which is undeniable, and we have to also consider that this was tested on my medium skin tone. One more thing there is minimum fallout 😊

The shimmers

These are beautiful according to its page has

  • 7 matte shades
  • 1 Glitter shade
  • 2 Shimmer shade
  • 4 metallic shades

But felt more to me like a mix of satins which texture to the touch is smooth and creamy the shine is not high but soft still pretty some people do like soft looks I do love the satins the color called Pistachio is so gorgeous! Is a one and done easily! It has a gold shimmer that to the touch feels porous and is high shine like metallic very beautiful, and has a pressed glitter in green which is not everyone cup of tea, in my case does not stop me to buy a palette lol it’s beautiful though and is shiny! There is fallout with these two shimmers To apply use a medium or a primer glue and apply with love 🥰

The cost and thoughts

The cost of the palette with shipping was $ 36. 33 they delivered it super fast! Which I loved and had fun using the palette. I liked the shimmers and the satins, especially the Pistachio one but was not too much into the mattes formula I feel lacked pigmentation for me. Overall I give the palette a 7 out of 10.

Raise your hand if you are in the mood for some mega super sparkly shiny metallic shimmer! 🙋‍♀️ Itsbel Cosmetics can they grant us our fairy dust dreams? 🧚‍♀️

Hiya there! It’s me 😊 How are you? I hope you are well alongside your loved ones. Me I am well still going on Drs. This year I dedicated it to my health since I am older and as you age problems arise lol so the meds were given to me they keep me drowsy and my energy is not at its best hence why my blog is not as constant but not leaving it that is guaranteed I have so many fun palettes on my beauty collection to go thru fun and all kind of interesting ones coming in! that you know I declutter in my store but not before I blog about them first here so all is connected you see 😇 so I thank you so much for your patience babe! Slowly but surely every week I do open a new palette and I post the look of the day 5 days a week on my Instagram so if you want some tea 🫖 do follow me there let’s be Amigas! 👉@beauteeindistress

Today I wanted to talk to you about an Indie brand called Itsbel Cosmetics. This brand was founded by Puerto Rican Aidmanellys Cintron. The company is based in Puerto Rico and they ship worldwide. They are Vegan and Cruelty-free. Products are not handmade. Here a link to their website


I ordered The Break the Rules palette and the Flare palette remixed which is the flare palette and 3 new singles but they only sent me the break the rules palette and the 3 singles! My mistake was I noticed it too late. I did email them to see what they say because they overcharged me which makes the experience a bit bittersweet.

Break the Rules Palette

This is a shimmer palette packed with pure fun! Has 3 shimmers, 2 mettallics, and 4 toppers. To touch it feels smooth almost like mousse smooth in a way is nice. There is a kick up in the pan or fall out quite a bit, best to do your eyes first hun to avoid having glitter all around the face. And I notice that some shades do stain the lid minimal but there is one that the stain is noticeable that may last a day once removed and that is the green one called I am Eager 4 more you can fix it with concealer no worries will go away. The colors are all sparkly and gorgeous! Dreamy! The palette can be used on its own as I did on my looks below or you can pair it with mattes of your choice 🥰

The Flare collection remixed well the 3 singles I got.

I got Rose Water, Larimar, and Amethyst. They also feel smooth like a mousse to the touch very nice. Rosewater looks more metallic, Larimar looks more like a topper and Amethyst looks more like a shimmer. All look very sparkly and shiny on the eyes. Most definitely not dull.

To apply these shimmers I used a medium called Mehron. On a brush with the shade of choice, I spray the mehron and then apply it to my lid to bring out even more of that shine. You can also use Nyx glitter glue or your favorite product that you already use to apply your shimmers 😊 some don’t use it at all and that is ok lovie, just to prevent any fallout wet the brush with setting spray so does fall on the face.

These look more on the light side, like pastel side which is great to me all year round lol but also for spring and summer!

The cost

The Break the Rules palette cost $ 27.99 the Flare collection remixed bundle which to my understanding was the flare palette and the 3 new singles that I talked about were $ 42 and I just got sent the 3 singles overall I paid with shipping $ 77.96 they took a while to ship the order. And the reason is that the singles were a pre-order so that delays the order also these palettes.

In conclusion The palette and the singles I love but the customer service and their atention to detail well not as much so I give them an 8 out of 10 this was my experience they have a good following and their products are in high demand these palettes will be sold out always. I do think they need to communicate better. I sent them an email regarding my purchase on Sunday today is Wedbesday night and they never responded so I won’t be buying again to me customer service is more important than the product but again that does not mean will happen to you. Also this palette and singles will be in my store this Sunday at a bargain and I do recommend the quality they are super sparkly!

Star-Crossed lovers Duo Chrome Palette by Bellabeautebar did it capture my lil heart or did it break it into a million pieces do I need some Ice cream? 😯 😱🥰😭💘💔🍨🍫

Hello lovies how are you 🥰 I hope you had a hreat Valentines and a good month of february Month overall 🥰 mine was good. My son was my valentine. I love the makeup looks this time of the year! 😍

Hi from me 😊

So let me tell you about this Indie brand I found my lovies it’s called bellabeautebar they launched the Star-Crossed lover’s collection and photos of the palette and the collection overall got my attention right away they had the cutest lashes with some Lil heart thingies to die for! And some pinky and turquoise flakes that look very shiny! let’s just say I was intrigued! And my heart was you got to get some of that! 🤩

Bellabeautebar LLC

Established in 2018 in New York, USA, cosmetics are paraben-free, cruelty-free, and handmade plus is a one-person show so all the business functions are in the hands of one person and my order was shipped promptly so kudos to the brand 😊 here a link to their website


What fun goodies I bought from the brand!

I got the Star-Crossed lovers duochrome eyeshadow palette for $ 49

I got the Amor embellished faux minx lash for $ 18

I also got me the basic BBB x tenacity STUCK AF waterproof felt tip adhesive jewel pen for $ 15

I got two metamorphosis chrome flake gels in the shades:

  • Blue moon
  • Metalmark

The Palette

Is truly gorgeous, consists of 6 shimmering duo-chromes, 5 buttery mattes, two diamond mattes, one shimmer, and one multi-chrome.

The mattes

Delicious lovies, creamy, they gave me no issues, found no patchiness, yes to fallout in the pan but if you tend to do your foundation first I do not and I highly recommend that is so liberating! Haha! You can mess up all you want but if not then just put setting powder on the under-eye area or a Gel eye patch lol yes! If you have puffy eyes these are lifesavers in the morning and they have a double function for this too my loves! The colors are beautiful my only complaint is that I do wish a had a black matte, a yellow matte, and a turquoise one lol why you ask? I was feeling these colors for valentines…Love is not only pinks and red for me but also yellow for friendship, turquoise for tears of either joy or sadness, and black for the growth we go thru to love ourselves and others but this is me going philosophical, haha a black matte would have been nice! This palette does come with two great diamond mattes why not a Lil more sparkle I know some prefer pure mattes but I think this palette, in particular, makes it more fun. 😎

The Shimmer Duo-chromes

Well, I don’t think I have tried shimmer duo-chromes in a palette form and that is what attracted me so much to this brand. They are indeed high shine and just gorgeous! In the pan when you looking at them and in your eyes! Now when you touch them with your fingers they feel porous to the touch is not the usual sensation one gets accustomed to with other palettes like buttery is just different but they apply well into the eyes I use always a flat brush and end it with my finger. The palette also has one regular shimmer and one Multichrome.

Is worth mentioning that to prep my eyes I put eye primer this makes the eyeshadow color show a bit more, and creates a base, improving the skin texture. I highly recommend it. Of course, some eyeshadow still doesn’t show much just a wash then what you do is you do a primer base of the same color or similar color of the eyeshadow, and voila! You will get one pigmented eyeshadow 👌 for the shimmers I use Mehron is a medium that I spray on my brush, you can also use Nyx glitter glue as well.

Metamorphosis Chrome Flake Gels

These in my opinion are the stars of the show! I love these! These are the stuff of dreams they are a combination of shiny and metallic! So fun! Happiness in a small jar lol the texture when you touch them is like a mousse feels nice, they shift color depending on the light as chromes do. To apply you do not need a medium, only a brush or your fingers, I used my flat brush. Now Metalmark which is the pink one is pigmented but the blue moon shows more the silver shift than the blue so what I did to show more the blue shift I use a soft blue base primer and that did the trick for me 🙃

Amor embellished faux minx lash

I am not a big fan of glue on lashes I prefer magnetic lashes all the time always, among my first posts here I talk about magnetic lashes so there you go haha. But gurl as soon I saw these cute AF lashes omg I just could not resist these. In-person they look nice, super cute I bought also the stuck af waterproof felt tip adhesive pen which looked super cool is a black liner so you can do a wing line and then attach the lashes now they did not stick well or separated at the corners of my eyes 3 times! Granted I am not a pro on glue on lashes and luckily I took the pen to work because the third time happened at work lol but I did love the lashes I just think I need practice with the pen.


Overall I am so happy I decided to try this brand they ship promptly, the Palette, the flakes, the lashes are all gorgeous! I am one returning customer! For the factor of joy, happiness in a jar I give them a 10 out of 10!

Bad witch club Palette by Give Me Glow Cosmetics. Gurrl we got to talk about this! 😎🧙

When I got this palette in my hands and I opened it and saw the color story I did not feel excited at all the colors looked dull to me. Could it be because I have been buying so many makeup palettes lol 🤣 when I put them on my eyes the unexpected happened…Magic! 💫

Holaa my sweets! How are you! How are things? I hope you are being safe out there for yourself and your loved ones 😊 I am well still dealing with my migraines but happy and grateful to get to live another day in this beautiful world of ours, feeling much better now being treated by my Dr. Let’s jump to today’s post 🙃

Give Me Glow Cosmetics

It’s an indie brand founded by a woman Brandy Davis, known for its big pan eyeshadows and its high shine metallic shimmers. Vegan, cruelty-free, they ship worldwide Except Puerto Puerto Rico. Below a link to their website.


The Palette

Well the Palette at first glance at least to me did not look as appealing looked a bit Halloweeny so must confess was not much excited that my loves changed right the seconds I put it on my eyes 🥰

The Mattes

Smooth, buttery, they blend easily they are pigmented this is not a neutral palette here is indeed a colorful palette. There is fallout I yet have to find a palette with no fallout this is normal just tap tap that brush. To apply the mattes I used a primer. I am a firm believer in eye primers to create a smooth base and help bring the best pigment of the eyeshadow.

The shimmers

They are beautiful however not as shiny as I would have liked or foiled as they usually are from this brand but they are still beautiful they complement and accentuate the mattes so well. They feel soft and smooth, easy to apply with a brush I sprayed my brush with Mehron I tend to do this to bring the maximum shine possible the shimmer.

Overall the way the colors looked on my eyes were so beautiful, magical, I felt beautiful and sexy they looked romantic, and sultry is a thing to try on your own eyes just for the surprise factor I give it a 10 of 10!

Tiny Marvels By Sydney Grace Cosmetics a Collab with the late Mel Thompson

Mel Thompson was such an talented gprgeous inapirational being. I have learned and still learning a thing or two from her channel. I am more than happy to own this beautiful Palette and can honestly tell you is as beautiful as she was.

Hello my lovies. Apologies for not posting last week, to you beauties that read me out there but my migraines and the meds given by my Dr got the best of me. The good news I got done a brain  MRI and cane  normal :), Meds are helping but messing other areas so is a jorney! But of course nothing makes me stop putting on and trying on makeup looks every day as my dear late Auntie used to say Beauty and poise until death 😊

Mel Thompson

She was a digital content you tuber creator , makeup artist and a very talented one.  She died at the age of 35 and the cause was never disclosed by her family. She left behind her husband and 4 children.  All her friends and fans that connected with her talk very high of her and while watching her videos you can sense she was indeed a great human being. I leave you here a link to her channel you might be surprised that you may find something there to learn as I did 😊


Sydney Grace Cosmetics

Is a sister owned company, US based, cruelty free, most of their products are vegan and they ship all over the world. Below a link to their website.


The Palette

This palette artwork was done by tatoo artist Pat Bennett Mel’s friend and contains fifteen 2 gram eyeshadows. With 9 mattes and 6 shimmers.

The mattes.

They are pigmented, feelt creamy and buttery to the touch, I had no issues blending, there is a little fallout… that does not bother me, I always do my eyes first and tap thw brush. Some shades needed more building than others but is normal on medi skin like mine, shades like treehoper…you get the idea.

The shimmers

I was not expecting how beautiful thos were! I of course know sydney grace is a well known loved indie brand but I was just not prepared these shimmers pack a punch! They pop your eye look in such a beautiful way! They feel creamy to the touch and yes fallout on the pan but so dreamy! I got compliments at work on this on my eyes. I took photos but shimmers are hard to capture on photos but tried my best 😊

Overall the palette is beautiful I give it a 10 of 10

I am keeping my palette, wont sell it but this doent mean you cannot get own of this! The brand will continue to sell this palette and a portion of the proceeds goes directly to Mel’s family. Which I think is so grand of the brand! The cost is $ 52

Oden’s Eye Legendary Diversa. A beautiful collection that disappeared as soon it appeared 🧙‍♂️🎩

A beautiful collab with three Influencers that everybody wanted and sold just as fast! I have never seen such desired collection getting discontinued so quickly! Glad I got my hands on these palettes so I can tell you my two cents on them 😇

Hello hello, beautiful! How are you? I hope you are well alongside your loved ones 🥰 Me I am still dealing with my headaches..soon to be seen by a Dr again after some tests and hopefully get meds to get to deal with them. Other than that I been Fab 😊 so let’s get to their palettes.

Oden’s Eye Cosmetics

This is a new brand established in 2017 from Sweeden. Inspired by their legends, ancient Mythology from that part of the world. Created by sleepless P Nordic. They are cruelty-free and Vegan free. They ship all over the world and have their products made in the PRC People’s republic of China. You can check out their store here:


Humming Bird Palette

A colorful story that got its inspiration from the hummingbirds and the tropical land of Jamaica. Contains shimmers and metallics that resemble the reflective colors of the hummingbird’s feathers.  Has 5 Mattes and 7 Shimmers. A perfect palette for those who love colorful eyeshadows.

The Mattes

They are pigmented, the color story is cute, they feel creamy to the touch and they have fallout in the pan. I did experience some patchiness and they did not want to blend fully.

The Shimmers

Also creamy to the touch, I felt they were not the usual shiny this brand is known for. They weren’t as sparkly.

Overall the palette is cute and colorful, does stay all day on the lids. A solid 7 out of 10!

Looks and style

Big Wolves Palette

This was my favorite of the three. The main inspiration comes from the two wolves that eat the moon and the sun in North mythology, thus making the night dark and day bright. The palette has sultry blues, purples, and greens in different finishes to represent the bright day colors and sensual night colors.

The Mattes

Pigmented, also fallout in the pan. The palette has 7 mattes. Is a nice color story. They blended well, had no issues here.

The Shimmers

5 Beautiful and sparkly,

Loved the color story on this palette and really enjoyed using it a 10 out of 10!

Arm Swatches

Looks and Style

Red Dragon Palette

Warm tones of peaches, coppers, and warm browns form this warm tone palette. Good for warm tone lovers. Inspired by the Chinese red dragon.

The Mattes

They are beautiful but did not love color story here I felt needed a more intense Red shadow for example. I Felt limited as the shades offered. Also fallout in the pan. Had no issues blending, they feel creamy to the touch but even though they blended ok they are not a buttery blend if that makes sense. This goes for all the mattes in the collection

The Shimmers

They are cute. Felt they could have made them a bit more exciting for this palette it falls under the neutral side which I am rarely excited for. However, is a beautiful palette indeed. A 7 of 10!

Arm Swatches

Looks and Style


Overall the three palettes are beautiful by themselves, was pretty cool for the brand to give each of the three influencers their palette and their input in them. The art is exquisite, chef kiss you can see the effort and care the brand put on this.

This is one of my favorite brands. I always get excited when they announce a new launch. Despite the people wanting a Restock on these palettes..they were launched in September last year only.. they have discontinued them.

I took the opportunity to talk about this brand thru these palettes. What I like about this brand are its sparkly shimmers. They offer in some of their palettes Diamond shimmer eyeshadows some shifts to other colors. So is indeed a fun brand to try, they have quick shipping and great customer service which I don’t know about you but to me, that is paramount I have stopped using a brand solely on bad customer service!

If you wish really like this palettes but you missed out on them I will sell these on my Store at a bargain!

Indigo Ink Palette by Menagerie Cosmetics. OMG 🤯

Hello, my beautiful! How is it going? I am feeling grateful for having air in my lungs and getting up every morning and living 🥰 I am still with my migraines these past few days have been getting better and hopefully continue on that path. So Menagerie Cosmetics! Have you heard of this Indie brand? Have you tried it? If you haven’t then Chica is time to! Here is a link to their website.


Menagerie Cosmetics

This indie brand is a one couple show! Run by Amanda the founder and her husband. She is an animal lover and has helped some animal conservation charities with the profits of her company. Her products are Vegan, cruelty-free, and talc-free. Beleive it or not makes her products in her house! Hand made. She states no mass production only small batches. The brand is popular among indie lovers and their products sell fast at times in minutes! I love this brand and is one of my favorites. 🥰

Indigo Ink Palette

The cover is cute and beautiful. This palette features 4 multiple color-shifting eyeshadows, 1 chameleon, and 7 mattes. The color story is beautiful in my opinion 🙂

The mattes

They have a great formula, they are creamy, blend very well, and are pigmented. There is fallout in the pan. The shadows stay on the eyes all day once placed.

The Multi-chromes and chameleon shimmers

They are sparkly and really beautiful! The shift is not bold or strong but subtle which I did not care about. The colors are beautiful, shiny, and metallic. They apply well and stay on all day. I used a medium to enhance the shine and I recommend you do too to bring them out even more! I used Mehron Medium which is a great choice 😊

I read some mixed reviews about this palette some say is not the same formula therefore not happy. However the brand said that is the same formula and that has not changed, others like me love it! I honestly did not have any issues with it and enjoyed using it 🥰

The cost was $45 and I also bought the two lipsticks from the collection which I love and you will see me wearing them in my looks below they are two different shades of blue they are beautiful. Overall I felt pleased with my purchase. I honestly enjoyed using the palette and did not get bored using it in a week at all. I wholeheartedly recommend it to you! A 10 out of 10!

Is it that girl 🤔 Pricked Palette by Miss thing himself Jeffree Star Cosmetics 💢

He served us with another Monochromatic palette this time Orange don’t get me wrong is beautiful to look at and if you buy this brand you get accustomed to this type of palettes. Well, this time I felt a bit different 😑

Hello Beauties How are you? I hope you are being safe out there and for others with this never-ending Pandemic which hopefully each day that passes we come closer to an end 😷 Me well still hanging in there with my Migraines real soon, I will see a Neurologist, and hopefully, I can get them managed. For sure Makeup does relax me and makes all better every morning when sitting in front of my beauty station 🥰

Pricked Palette

No need to tell you who Miss thing is haha Jeffree Star needs no introduction and girl if you don’t know who that is and you love color girl go check him out on previous posts of mine or his youtube channel! He is something I’m telling ya! Referring to his products he is a wizard 🥰 this is a Monochromatic Orange palette that has creamy mattes, metallic shimmers with duo-chrome finishes.

The mattes

They are indeed soft to the touch and creamy like is usual in his palettes there is a lot of fallout in the Pan, so either does your eyes first or put setting powder under the eye area and regardless of the choice always tap tap that brush! to release excess. Some shades are similar like Vitamin C-word and Silver of Sanity plus they are sheer on Medium skin tone like mine which is expected from this yellow color, you can build up of course but will not be that bold in your face yellow shade our heart desires. The oranges shades are quite beautiful some are pigmented and others sheer The palette has a couple of neutral shades for a transition like Thorny and double-crossed and soft wine pinkish shades too. Once applied they last all day on the eye, do not vanish away. Overall they are soft and subtle great to apply color in a nude eye look.

The shimmers

They are quite beautiful I felt the formula has been improved they look more metallic on the eye but not as sparkly as I would love them to but very beautiful indeed. Now about the duo-chrome finish well is not duochrome to me if it is then is very faint. Cannot be compared to other indie brands where the shift is easily seen with no effort.

Final thoughts

Well to be honest I started my love for makeup with Jeffre Star Cosmetics, I got used to Monochromatic palettes. Then I ventured to try other indie brands and well my horizon got expanded in such a nice, fun, dreamy way got to love also non-monochromatic palettes 😊 This palette I felt limited to the looks I could create mind you I am just in beginner self-taught level I honestly by using it for one week for this review got bored quite fast overall is beautiful and boring. Now I am still very fond of this brand and I do not see myself stopping just yet buying his products but the excitement is not as high as used to be. I give the palette a solid 7 of 10!

Lore Palette by Unearthly cosmetics why the fuzz every time with their palettes 🧐

Unearthly Cosmetics formerly known as Alien Cosmetics needs no Introduction. If you have not yet heard or tried this brand all I can say is you missing out!

Hello lovies 🥰 Happy new year to you! I hope you are well alongside your loved ones. Apologies I have not been consistent, been suffering from terrible Migraines with Vertigo as well as fast and weird heartbeats. I am in the process of seeing Doctors and just taking it day by day.  Slowly but surely I will continue posting when possible 😊

Lore Palette

In a previous post I spoke a little about the brand, let’s just say is a solid brand, a favorite of mine. The Lore palette has 4 Mattes and 5 shimmers I got the new reformulated one meaning improved formula as per the mention in their Instagram.

The Mattes

Colorful and pigmented no much fallout on the pan or the face, is always good to tap the brush on the palette before applying to prevent fallout, no complaints on the Mattes, they are buildable and blend easily.

The shimmers

No pressed glitters which is good. The shimmers are outstanding like this brand is known for they are very Metallic and sparkly. I did find Serpent and Sphinx to be a little similar.

When the palette arrived two shades were shattered and took more than one pressing to make it sturdy, nevertheless I did like this Palette very much. A 9 out of 10!

The brand is not selling the Palette at the moment but they announced 3 weeks ago that it will be restocked.  I most definitely recommend this fun beautiful palette 😊

Tim Burton”s The nightmare before Christmas palette.

The Mattes

Half are sheer like the grey-toned ones on medium skin that is, they need to be layered upon the lid a bit. The other half the colorful one is pigmented. Wish they had more colors in the palette I felt a bit limited in that sense, however, you can create fun simple beautiful looks.

The Shimmers

Not that shiny they are more like satin or subtle shimmer. Still looks very beautiful on the lid, like for example the shimmer Halloween Town swatches gorgeous like your eyes open in excitement but once on the eye is not as exciting.

There is fallout on the Pan quite a bit so you will need to tap a few times the brush on the palette before putting it on the lid. I don’t mind fallout I believe all palettes have fallout, just tap that brush and you’re good to go.

If you want to smoke out a look you will need a black eyeshadow from any palette to make it more smokey. For the shimmers, I tried them with a medium but won’t make them shinier.

The cost of this palette was $ 11 I bought it on Black Friday and got free shipping since bought some other goodies. For the price, I will say this is a beautiful fun palette. True I am not a fan of the shimmers but hey for that price they ok not to be the brightest on the lids. Overall I would give a 7 out of 10!
