Fun eye catching packaging on the outside and quality eyeshadows inside 🥳 Zeesea Cosmetics

Hello amores 🥰 It’s been a minute since I posted last but had a couple of health issues. One I had a scheduled pap screening to check that my uterus is well after my procedure in July about the pre-cancer.

I did the test and right the next day I started bleeding like crazy filling up 5 pads a day! And not on period time so the mental stress for the 2 weeks I had to wait for the results was tough, luckily the test came back after two weeks and was normal, and on top got Covid! First time I get it!

My spirit was down for December 😔 right at the end of it the sun came out again in my life I was Covid free and with a clean bill of health, my Uterus was ok!

I decided to start making my dreams happen and joined a prestigious makeup school that started in November. I am learning besides makeup basic hairstyles 😊 I put school updates like practice and anything related to this journey on my socials 🥰

Feeling grateful and blessed. Having a much bigger appreciation for life. Life is truly just an instant we cannot dwell on things that no matter, or be upset with friends and family that matter for stupid things. We need to help even in a small way to people in need. We need to live ❤️

Now let’s talk about the palette! 😄

The British Museum Palette

Zeesea is a Chinese brand that worked with the royal British museum for this palette, it’s inspired by Alice in Wonderland. The packaging is eye-catching and fun! I love when brands put thought into that! I mean one can buy a product just for the packaging alone!

The mattes

This is a full-color palette not for neutral babies, but can be paired with any neutral palette for a pop of color! The shades are ultra-pigmented, blendable, and buildable. I had no issues with it. The fallout was none but I always tap, tap, tap! 😄

The Simmers and Glitter gel shade

The shimmers are nice and subtle, you can always make them pop even more using a mixing medium or glitter glue. Also has a couple of topper shades that shine nicely. The star here is the glitter gel, this is my favorite type of gel, feels wet to the touch and is ready to apply with no mess you can use your fingers or a silicone brush. It’s very pretty and shiny!

Overall it’s a solid palette I do not have any complaints. I enjoyed it and def recommend it if you love color! You can def create some magical looks with it 🫠

This palette will be up for sale in my store at Mercari at a discounted price 😊 will be up later tonight or tomorrow. You can check my store here 👇

Half Magic Beauty from the Euphoria mua do they deliver magical fun like on TV 🤔

Holaa amores lovies. I hope you are well. Are you going to put on a costume for Halloween? Well, I plan to! and attempt some creepy look with makeup for the first time! will see how that goes lol I will post my look on Tiktok on Halloween day if you want to check the final result! Today I bring you this very new brand by mua euphoria tv show!

I got me some goodies just a few to try them out.

Chromadiction Sky Blue

This is a matte liquid eyeshadow. It is beautiful you can do just a wash of color or build it up, best to work and blend on one eye first then the other as they dry out fast but you get room to work with it. I found a little patchiness but you can fix it just as quickly.

Chromadiction Main Character

This is a magenta shimmer and a subtle one. For me needs more shine however looks nice to the eye.

Glitterpill: Neptune Daddy and Money Plz

Well, they are not opaque you will need to build them up to get that shine to show, but once on the eyes, they are so beautiful! My favorite even though turquoise is a favorite color of mine in this case Money Plz…Stole the show is mesmerizing!

Angel Rave Liptrick

The lippie is a soft purple emphasis on the softness is more like a wash of color, the lip liner which has two colors one blue and the other purple is also soft. All together looks like a wash of color I wish were more bold and impactful, however, they do look pretty just the lip liner kinda blends into the lip so you lose the effect but is pretty.

I also got the wing magician to help with eye wings that I had not used it yet but have no science is a good tool to have. And also got face lace decals which can bring the fun out of an eye look! Overall I do think the brand is fun, love their packaging, and if afraid of color you can try it and make it soft.

I hope you liked this post then check this brand out they have come out with a very interesting eyeliner that promises some fun shapes on top of the traditional, I have my eye on it lol.

Here some looks 😝

These products will not be in my store as I think the way they come packaged is more for personal use.

Let’s be friends folow me on my socials here 👇

See ya soon babe 💋

Flower Moon Duochrome Palette. A fun beautiful thing to play with 😏

It’s not a boring palette, you can create a ton of looks from the most subtle one to the most fun one 😋

Hola lovies! Happy beginning of October or spooky season! My favorite time of the year in the makeup world! Halloween is one of my favorite days how about you? I hope you are well and fab! Let’s begin with this post

Flower Moon Palette

This palette is by Ensley Reing Cosmetics an Indie brand that has 4 Mattes and 15 Duo-chromes. I like the color story but felt needed more colors like a black matte and like a white or silver Duo-chrome just to wrap up the looks.

The mattes

I felt a bit limited since only 4 of them, would be nice to have besides de black a nude matte to blend the main color and black for depth but you can work with the 4 mattes for sure. Some beauties need their depth, you can always pair this palette with another one. Also another important thing I had no issues, no patchiness, really easy to blend and they are rich in pigment.

The Duo-chromes

They are all beautiful! Some feel like toppers, others feel pigmented and thick to cover the eye. My favorite shade is Vernal is pigmented and super shiny! Is gorgeous! A con is that the shades are not as shifty as they are on swatching on the skin, they are very subtle once on the eye and the shine is okay but not all shades are as shiny.

Overall it is a nice palette it has some for the neutral lovers and the color lovers like me. I created 3 looks and of course, put in there my touch 🤪

Currently, the palette is sold out the price list is $69 which I think is a bit overpriced because the duo-chromes are not as shifty but is my understanding that the formula of creating these types of shades adds up to the cost.

I recommend it if you want to try the brand it is beautiful you can get truly beautiful looks out of it. but if you are looking for super shifty shadows then this palette is not the way to go. When I got the palette I saw a wet stain around some shadows which I think is the formula seeping out. Overall I give it 7 out of 10.

This palette is going for sale at my store at a of course reduced price 😊 here 👇


Let’s be friends on Instagram, Tiktok and twitter you can find me there as 👇

I did an unboxing video as well a tutorial and eyelooks bits on my socials, you can check them out there 🙃

I wish you loves a great start of October! Be safe and stay glam! See ya soon 🤗💋

About-Face Beauty. What a fun, delicious explosion of color💥 😏

Hello loves, I hope all is well. How is life going? I am doing well, today I want to talk about this fun brand, let’s begin

This is a celebrity brand by Halsey. I honestly found the brand the other way around for its makeup, not the celebrity, I did not know who Halsey was. She is one cool soul for sure and seems very hands-on with her brand doing tutorials herself and talking all about her brand.

This is what I bought:

• Shadow fix smoothingg eye primer. Always sold out but luckily I grabbed one 🙂

• Matte fluid eye paint in color Capulets (Nude)
• Matte fluid eye paint in color Vertigo (Green)
• Matte fluid eye paint in color New Karma (Light Purple)
• Matte fluid eye paint in color Blue Monday (Pastel Blue)

• Line artist gel eyeliner in color Call me Crazy (Green)
• Light Lock iluminating body: CGI
• Light Lock body brush

Shadow fix matte smoothing eye primer

I am still getting the hang of it. I do not like that it dries fast! So you need to spread it quickly without delay otherwise will look patchy and no way to fix it unless to use makeup remover to fix it.

Matte fluid eye paint

they are pigmented!, however, I think it needs just a little practice, the first time I applied just a little and spread or difuminated with a brush, you have to act quickly otherwise will look patchy. I like you can either do a wash of color if you going for subtle or build up if you going for a bold colorful eye. The colors are rich and beautiful, the package is fun I never saw one like it. Does last all day and loved how my eyes look! The brand won an award for these last year.

Line Artist Gel eyeliner.

These are all you ever want in an eyeliner, they are so pigmented, creamy, and last all day! You can do a whole eye look using only the eyeliners which are so fun! The brand won an award for them too this year.

Matte paint lip color and Matte flix pencil color.

Omg, I love the formula! Lasts all day without re-applying, feels hydrating, and you can easily forget is on your lips. Packaging is similar to the eyepaints where some people have complained but I don’t. I care about the formula and is one to love! You can get them in sets with their matching pencil colors, they feel creamy, smooth, and oh yes pigmented!

Light lock lip gloss.

I got the shade unholy. I am in love with it, smells yummy like chocolate peppermint and is like a shiny, iridescent pastel blue.

Light lock iluminating body and brush.

I got it in the purple shade not thinking it will look good or not on my skin lol, got it just because I love purple! Anyways makeup is about having fun right? It looks really pretty, to be honest, gives a nice ethereal glow, the brush is a good size, supersoft,t and gets the job done.

Overall I loved using the products, had so much fun, and the colors are delicious and a delight to put on my eyes 🙃 did some reels and til toks that you can check here 👇

I love their packaging is different from what we are used to, which makes the experience fun! I for sanitary reasons will not sell these products by the way they pack it is obviously for personal use but I do recommend it to you to try them out. There is something for all, the color lover and also for the neutral babes. I give them an 8 out of 10

I hope you try it out also they have a very new second brand called af94 sold at Walmart offering their products for under $10 which is fabulous! I wish you only good things, have a great week ahead, and take care of yourself. See ya soon!

Dealing with the unthinkable…

I was at work talking on my phone FaceTiming with my Dr office the nurse said your results are abnormal we need to do a Biopsy for cancer. At that moment my world came cane to a stop, I felt suspended in time. I felt scared.

Hello sweets 🙂 apologies that I did not continue to post but as you can tell from the theme of this post I have been dealing with the unthinkable. I hope you are well alongside your loved ones 🥰 what’s new in your life? 🙃 I am a very private person in super personal stuff, but the reason I am sharing this is to make awareness to all of you beautiful ladies out there ❤

It all started in April. Since I got my period at 12 years old my period has never changed, has always been regular, and lasts 8 days. The period this past April lasted 11 days which I thought was odd but then I remembered in just a couple of days I was having my annual women’s exam so I waited to see the Dr.

Once on the appointment, Dr did a pap smear and said He does not see a concern for the extra period days but if becomes recurrent like in the next three periods then we can look into it. So I left a little more at ease.

5 days after I started bleeding! was like a medium flow and lasted for 4 days I called my Dr and even though they are booked (you have to make an appointment a month before) they brought me right away and did an Ultrasound.

The Ultrasound was good all clear the Dr explained no cysts or polyps and in regards to the bleeding nothing to worry about but to continue to watch it. I left and waited for the pap smear results.

I was at work and got a call from my Dr around 9 am that they needed to do a facetime call  around 11 am (It, ‘s not a facetime has a name but the concept is the same forgot the term for it)

I never had this type of call with my Dr, therefore I was a bit concerned. Finally, the call came so I went to an empty room in the office and was the Doctors nurse she said the pap smear was abnormal and that they needed to do a Biopsy!

At that moment my world came crumbling down, and tears started filling up my eyes. I asked why. She said was to rule out cancer. She noticed my distress and said do not think horrible things just calm down all will be ok and proceeded to schedule my appointment for 1 month after.

The procedure that they were going to do is called Colposcopy, the wait time of one month felt like an eternity, I was in a state of stagnation, I felt like I was suspended in time. I was very scared.

I got home and as soon I saw my husband I burst into tears, he got scared and asked me what is it.  when I told him he hugged me and cried with me we both calmed down by saying all will be ok. I honestly could only think of my son, would be very hard to leave him and for him to lose his mother.

I stopped doing my makeup to go to work, posting on my socials, writing new posts for my blog, and selling my stash in my Store in Mercari. I just could not function, all I could think was that freaking biopsy.

I tried my hardest to think positive and fought those pesky negative thoughts, would cry when alone and was fearful of bleeding again all of a sudden!  now even more! and on top of that, I lost count of my cycle!

One day just two weeks before the procedure I started bleeding, was at the end of my work day. I jumped in my car and started to cry thinking about what is happening to me! Got home and my husband hugged me and with great strength on his part calmed me down. By the second day, I confirmed this bleeding was my period and felt relieved but my nerves and my mind were stressing me out.

The day the colposcopy came in, I asked for the day off at work. When I got there they put me in a room that I have not seen before, it was extremely cold and a weird big looking machine was there alongside a tray with tools.

The Dr explained they will put a camera inside, and take samples of the entrance of the cervix, the wall of the uterus and the upper side of the cervix to be tested he told me to lay down and not to worry it won’t hurt. He also said he did not think is cancer due to me doing every year a pap smear and were all normal which helped the odds.

I laid down and when my legs were up in position, my legs started to shake uncontrollably due to the cold, I could not control them, he inserted a device to maintain open the vagina, let me tell you that hurt then told me to be perfectly still and turned off the lights, the only light on was the machine so he could see inside.

He started to take samples and was giving instructions to the nurse. He finished the procedure at all times he was explaining what he was doing and he made it as peaceful as possible for me. Then he told me I will be bleeding for a day or two and in one week he will call to give me the results of the biopsy.

This waiting period of one week was extremely stressful, then on the 7th day when on my way home that dreaded call from my Dr office came in, it was my Dr, he sounded serious so I knew something was up, he said it’s not cancer is Pre cancer, I had severe dysplasia which is pre-cancerous cells and from the levels of risk from 1 to 3, I was from 2 to 3 very high risk.

He said we needed to do a procedure called Leep where he will burn all the pre-cancerous cells and remove a disk size piece from my uterus to do a biopsy to test for cervical cancer.

After hearing this my heart sunk, felt so helpless. He schedule me to see him in three weeks since they are booked I could sense from him that it was urgent to have it done. And said will not be able to perform it while on my period.

My family’s opinions were all over, my mother who is a Doctor from my Country said you need to remove the Uterus right away! She reminded me of my grandmother who died of Ovarian cancer, she made me seriously think about removing my Uterus and asked the Dr if we could do that, but he said no that that would be too aggressive he said we are not there.

So while I waited I decided to get a second opinion with a gynecologist Oncologist just to hear his opinion on this ordeal but he is also booked and left me an appointment to see him in a Month around two weeks after the Leep procedure. I also decided to see a General Practitioner or family Dr that I have not seen one in years! Best to be sure how I was in general.

The day I was expecting my period was like two weeks before the procedure and was a no show, I just spotted for two days and had some cramping but no period. I thought maybe will not be here this month so I no worried too much about it.

On the week just before my procedure, my period came and came heavy, the 4th day of my period I woke up with a lot of pain that lasted until the next day I woke up again which was not fun but my period was supposed to end just the day prior the procedure, usually on the 8th day, I don’t have any flow left.

The 8th day came and I was spotting light but got concerned, so I called the Dr and the nurse said they prefer to schedule me a week after since I am still bleeding and usually is better to do it a week after the period, I told her what if stops? She said what if it doesn’t? I told her to not change the appointment because I know is urgent they do this and that I was confident my period will stop, she said okay we will keep it but if Dr sees any bleeding he will not do the procedure and I agreed. I was crossing my fingers my body will cooperate with me.

That night I prayed that my period stops, went to bed, and fell asleep.  This stressful period I had been dreaming about my grandfather a lot he was to me my father since he raised me he was the love of my life he passed on 2019. This night he appeared in my dream, I was at this big fair and for some reason, I decided I wanted to leave…

While on my way out I saw this little boy in his stroller and stopped to look at him and the boy vomited on me. I then decided to go back to the fair and look for a bathroom to clean myself the little boy had vomited from my neck down to my feet.

On the way I found a person that I knew was a friend even if I never seen this person before in my life, the person accompanied me to the very open bathroom, with no walls, so I got in and started to look for soap and realized there was none!

In my frustration all of a sudden I saw my grandfather walking at a distance he stopped at a bench just on the side right in front of me, sat down, and looked at me, he looked young like in his thirties, he gave me a big smile, lifted his arm, and showed me a soap! He made me signs that he was leaving it on the bench, got up and started to walk, and vanished.

I told my friend to please go get it. When all of a sudden another person that was walking by saw the soap and took it! I immediately screamed sir! That soap is mine as you can see I am covered in vomit, the person apologized and gave me the soap. I looked at the soap it was white  I smiled and woke up.

To my delight I had no bleeding it was gone! I felt so happy got to my appointment, and was brought again to this particular room with the weird machine, the Dr came in and explained the procedure.  I asked if he sees any bleeding, and he said not at all. I smiled and thought of my grandfather he did this miracle to stop the bleeding. 😊

He said they will inject (yes inject!) anesthesia that will feel like a bee sting to numb my cervix, then I will hear a vacuum. sound from the machine, burn the affected area and take a biopsy sample which he would do from inside of the uterus removing a disk-size piece.

The nurse proceeded to put a pad around my leg for the electricity that the machine will release to burn the affected area. To be honest, I did not feel the shot much, what hurt was the device they use to open the vagina, then to be still while he does the procedure per Dr orders which even if does not hurt feels very uncomfortable.

He finished and said will call me with the results in one week. This time I requested a week off from work to rest at home. The dr said will take 6 weeks for my Uterus to heal.

This time while I was waiting for the results I was at peace I was having, for the most part, good thoughts, and resting at home did help. When the call came I was ready for it. The Dr said that the area he removed confirmed that I had severe dysplasia and that he was almost 100 percent sure he removed all the bad pre-cancerous cells and that the biopsy came negative it’s not cancer. He also said the abnormal bleeding is hormonal due to my age.

I was relieved to hear that, I asked what was the next step he said to do a pap smear in November in 4 months to check that all is ok. This was great news I felt I could breathe again.

I felt so grateful to God and the Universe for catching this on time. Two days later I decided to put makeup on and this simple mundane thing brought tears to my eyes as crazy as it sounds.

This experience made me realize my mortality I never experienced anything as scary as this. Made me realize dreams that I have put on hold for so long that I needed to make them happen, I need to live life to the fullest.

This is my story, as of now I am waiting to see a second opinion but I feel less inclined to remove my Uterus, the dr said this to me, you want to kill a roach by tumbling the house down, that is not the way to go. Will see what the second opinion has to say.

Love the reason I shared this is to make awareness to beg you to please every year do your pap smear without delay it could be the difference between life and death.

I honestly did not give importance to this test before in my life. I never stopped to think about what would happen if the test shows abnormal, in my case every year I do this test I do it because of routine not because I thought was important.

And some of you reading this will agree on that or worst some have not had a pap smear in years. I have a few female coworkers that have not done it in years and they were not even concerned about the importance to do it.

A quick update:

I got to see another Dr for a second opinion and he agreed with the first doctor: my uterus does not need to get removed. He did drawings explaining in detail that Dr per the Leep results indeed removed all the pre-cancerous cells and agreed also with my doctor that the abnormal bleeding is most likely due to hormones and to keep an eye on it for a few months.

What I got from this experience is that life is fragile. We can be well one day and bad the next. Is so important to do every year your women’s wellness exam! This includes a pap smear and a vaginal ultrasound make sure your Dr does that! Also is important a mammogram every year! You don’t have to wait until your late thirties if something does not feel right, demand to get it done.

Also, super important when going thru a very scary situation to always get a second opinion! Important as well to see every year your family doctor.

Steps I have taken towards a healthy Uterus:

  • I did a Genetic test: this is to check if I have the gen to get ovarian cancer or breast cancer. Doctors do this test if there is family history with this, in my case my Grandmother died of Ovarian Cancer and my mother was positive for the gen. I am still waiting on my results.
  • Getting the Shot for HPV: I already had first dose. Its 3 total in a period of 6 months. Did you know now women can get the shot up to 45 years old? Idid not! Used to be up to your twenties so I always thought I could no longer get it..well not many know! But is a fact so of you are 45 or less and you had no clue about this…go get it! Can save your life! Insurance does not cover this vaccine in older women dont let this stop you! Health has no price.
  • Going to your screenings after having pre-cancet do not miss them

I learned some people do not check themselves every year because of fear and I relate to that, I used to have those thoughts too but is better to get checked right away since if there is something horrible like cancer looming it can be stopped on time like in my case by getting myself checked, Cervical cancer as well ovarian cancer are known like silent killers they do not come with any symptoms to alert you so please do not let fear hold you or the thought of I feel well I have no symptoms so no need to see a Dr! from living your life to the fullest.

Please loves if you haven’t scheduled your pap smear do not wait another day, please get checked, also do not take this world for granted our time in it could be gone before we know it, go make your dreams happen! Go live! 

Thank you for reading. I hope I help you prevent this, I uploaded two vids about this on my tiktok 😊

Pat Macgrath Labs Bridgerton Palette Say what a Netflix collab? 📺

Hello loves I trust you are well 🥰 me I am good, healthwise good too, busy with work, fam, etc wish days have more hours! lol so I will try to shorten up my posts to post more if that makes sense 🤔 Let’s jump to it.

The Palette

Usually, their packaging is plastic very luxe feel, heavier, bigger, and more expensive this one is cardboard, still, pretty no complaints there to me make it cheaper. And as all Pat’s palettes well at least to me is a neutral palette I liked it because of that special blue shimmer that has.

The mattes

The mattes are pretty, subtle, and sublime pigmented, there is fallout not much.

The Shimmers

That blue shimmer Regency blue is pretty is the only one that shines the most but is not the kind of shine I look for. I did two looks one of them I paired with another shimmer with another brand and you will see the difference. The other shimmers are soft, and pretty but are more satin shimmers.

Overall I did two looks there is not much room to create here, well it can be used as a one-and-done kind of thing but as a color lover, this is a bit too neutral for me. I do think is pretty for soft feminine looks 🙃 I know a lot of beauties out there do love neutral rose looks and well Pat Macgrath is an outstanding brand in that area.

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
