I’m so excited to share a makeup look for all of you on this beautiful “Makeup Monday”.  Today is extra special because I have a Guest Writer here on Honeygirl’s World and this will be her first post that she shares with you.  Those of you that have been around the blog or my YouTube channel for a while may have seen my little sister Harmony stop in and share a smile.  Today she’ll be sharing a little information and her FOTD featuring BeYu Cosmetics.  Please join me in welcoming her to my site.

On my face I am wearing BeYu Cosmetics.  I have on the Color Patch Eye Palette 348-4303 which has green tones with gold undertones and shimmer.  My eyes are lined with BeYu soft liner 667 for eyes which is a teal metallic, while on my lashes is BeYu Beauty Queen Volume Waterproof Mascara in black. The mascara itself is a very thin formula, so none of my lashes clumped together, making for effortless application. First coat already defined the lash length, and as I kept applying it was a very buildable and it was not a thick formula. Although the wand was bigger than my regular mascara, I had no problem applying the mascara at all and particularly loved the lightweight feeling after application.

I have lined and filled in my lips with BeYu soft liner 5954 for lips, an almost burnt orange, without being so intense.  On top of that I am wearing BeYu catwalk volume gloss.  It is said to be an instant lip plumper and it does seem to have the effect of Plumping my lips.  It is a thick consistency but it’s not too uncomfortable on the lips.  It definitely is a gloss so of course, it will transfer should I eat or drink anything and I would need to reapply but it pairs perfectly with the soft lip liner, color matching perfectly with the lip liner.

The eyeshadows are very soft it feels like I have nothing on and there was absolutely no fallout, yet the color pigments shine beautifully in the light, reflecting every speck of iridescence. The mascara caught every single Lash on my eyes and is not heavy or thick. The soft liner pencils for lip and for eyes glided on smoothly and their color payoff is quite excellent as well.

Normally I prefer a matte eyeshadow as a base in any one of my pallets but for these quads, I think that every single shade available is gorgeous and easily wearable. Freely mix and match the shades to your individual preference, but quite honestly each quad has Shades that you could pair with anything and take with you on the go the only thing that I wish is that there were some form of mirror that came with the quads but I was able to use mirrors that I had already on hand.


Stay tuned for other looks using different quads and products from BeYu in the future, as well as a full review of some of the products you have seen displayed in this post.

Thank you Harmony for contributing to Honeygirl’s World.

I’ve been sitting on these products for a while now, testing and trying out all the shades and I finally feel like it’s time for me to share.  Beauty Junkees is quite possibly one of my favorite makeup brush brands and now I can call them one of my favorite “makeup / cosmetic” brands too.  Their beauty brushes and sponges are by far some of my favorites and are practically dead on dupes for my higher end ones.  So, when they started releasing eye shadows and other makeup products (which you can read about here), I was over the moon.  Stay tuned in the coming weeks because I’ve been sitting on their blushes too and a few other products that I simply can’t wait to share.  Today I’m going to chit chat with you about the Beauty Junkees Eye Shadow Singles, so hang tight and let’s have a some colorful fun, shall we?

Let’s talk about affordability without sacrificing quality.  For $119.00 you can get 28 single eye shadow pans and a really good magnetic makeup palette.  The shadows come in individual pans that can be organized in the included empty magnetic palette to help keep them organized and portable.  I’ve talked about this palette before in another post, and it’s really one of my favorites.  The palette includes a duo ended eye brush and not just any brush, but a really good “Beauty Junkees quality” brush.  The pans are 26mm and fit into the palette without any issue.  No need to pick up additional magnets or do any funky depotting (which I hate to do).

Now, let’s talk about the eye shadows themselves.  There are a total of 34 gorgeous shades in a range of cool and warm tones (which we all know I love). They are buttery soft and definitely something worth looking into.  Buildable and blendable color and I love that they shadows are quite easy to work with.  Each eye shadow is triple milled and pressed, allowing you to use them wet or dry.  Each shadow individually retails for between $6.00 and you can select between matte, satin and shimmer shades.  I find that these shadows apply nicely and I was beyond impressed with how buttery the matte shadows feel.  I didn’t really notice much fall out when applying and used over primer gave these shadows great longevity.

I have swatches I want to share with you on the shades available.  I am very impressed with the matte shades and I love the color range that is available.

Beauty Junkees also offers their Eye Shadow Quad Kits that include four shadow magnetic refill pans.  This is the perfect way to grab a few shades that you know you’ll use.  I am a fan of individual shadows because I love to customize my own palettes so that I’m sure I’ll use them instead of having some shadows untouched.  I also absolutely love the quality of these as well as the price point.  Overall – the pigmentation and quality are really nice.

I am so excited to share this with all of you. Where are all my eye shadow lovers at? Check out this gorgeous bunch of shadows from @beautyjunkees Beauty Junkees is one of my favorite makeup brush creators and I’m excited that they have branched out to include cosmetic products like eye shadows. These are so pretty. Also – if you’re looking for a great magnetic palette to hold all your shadows… hello, they have those too (the palette pictured is from Beauty Junkees). Check out the link and see what else they have to offer. I’ll have a full review of these shadows as well as swatches on the blog in the next week, so stay tuned for that… but I couldn’t not share these beauties now… I’ve had them for over 2 weeks and I just couldn’t hold back the excitement. http://ow.ly/bp7C309j2Is #pr

Cruelty Free, Made in the USA, Paraben, and Gluten Free all make these products worth checking out.  Beauty Junkees also offers a guarantee that if you try it and don’t like it – you can return it for a full refund up to 30 days after you receive it.  No questions asked.  They have also been compared to Makeup Geek (though I couldn’t tell you from personal experience since I don’t own anything from MG).

Since my original post on Instagram I have been asked time and time again to reveal my overall thoughts on this product line.  Let’s face it, I’m all about saving a buck if I can and I know that Beauty Junkees makeup products will continue to remain a staple in my makeup arsenal.  I didn’t include the additional shades that didn’t fit in the palette, but don’t worry – they are just as gorgeous as the others (I’ll update as soon as I can with swatches of those too).

You can purchase Beauty Junkees products on their website or via their Amazon Store.  If I get a discount code in the future, I’ll be sure to share and post here.

Who doesn’t love chocolate?  I am a huge fan of Too Faced and was so excited to hear that they were releasing the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette.  Since I already own the Original Chocolate Bar Palette and the Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette, I knew I had to get my hands on this one and I haven’t been disappointed.  This gorgeous palette is themed around candy-coated confection and today I’m going to share it with all of you.

Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons, Too Faced Chocolate bar, Too Faced, Bon Bons palette, review, beauty, palette, eye shadow palette,

The Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette ($49.00) includes an array of 16 matte and shimmer shades in cool pops of color, sugary brights and beautiful neutrals.  Each eye shadow is infused with the chocolate-scented goodness we have come to love – that antioxidant-rich cocoa powder formula.  The Chocolate Bon Bons palette is the third in the best selling Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection and it comes with a signature Glamour Guide that includes three beauty looks that you can use for inspiration.

Just like the other Chocolate Bar palette, the Chocolate Bon Bons palette comes in a tin packaging that is sturdy and makes for great travel.  It includes a good size mirror and I love that it also includes the name of each shadow on the palette itself to make for ease of use.  I own the original Chocolate Bar palette (1st edition) and that was one of my complaints, that the name was not on the palette and shades.  I still hold on to that little piece of plastic so I know what to call those babies. lol  As mentioned above, each shadow is infused with antioxidant-rich cocoa powder and smells of a sweeter chocolate scent then the other two (in my opinion).

The palette includes 14 brand new shades plus 2 cult favorites that will help in providing a limitless amount of eye looks.  The shades in this palette are perfect for me as they include a purple (black currant) that blends well with other shades to create a show stopping eye look with pizzazz.  The palette has heart shaped pans and the colors include rich candied bright shades that make such a great addition to the Chocolate Bar family.  I absolutely love it.

The first row of shades are perfect for anyone that loves a neutral eye look or something for every day.  Molasses Chip has become one of my favorite eye lid shades and Satin Sheets makes for a great inner corner highlight.  I also love using Satin Sheets as a cheek highlight too.

Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons, Too Faced Chocolate bar, Too Faced, Bon Bons palette, review, beauty, palette, eye shadow palette, swatches, eye shadow palette swatches, Cashew Chew (2nd row) is the perfect transition shade for my skin tone, as is Mocha and Black Currant and Bordeaux have been shades I love to use for deepening my eye look or creating more definition in the crease.Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons, Too Faced Chocolate bar, Too Faced, Bon Bons palette, review, beauty, palette, eye shadow palette, swatches, eye shadow palette swatches, In the 3rd Row one of my favorite shades is Totally Fetch.  Not only is the name a winner, but this gorgeous hot pink shade makes a great pop of color and blended with other shades it can tone down for a subtle hue.  Divinity is a great brow bone highlight shade and is matte but blends effortlessly.

A full list of ingredients for each shade can be found here.  As with all products you get from Too Faced, you can be assured that it is from a company that is Cruelty Free.  Hi Clover!

At first glance I really didn’t think I would get much use out of the Chocolate Bon Bons palette, especially since I had so many similar shades in others…  It took me at least a month to dive in and pick it up.  I decided that I couldn’t resist and I’m glad I picked it up because it has been a favorite palette to use since I got it.  I created the look below using colors from this palette and was amazed at how easy it was to blend in Totally Fetch in my look.

Research has show that the scent of cocoa is a natural mood-booster, however – the palette and the way it looks (it’s bright pink packaging) would make anyone smile.  I’m very impressed with this palette overall and it has easily become a favorite among many in my collection.  If you haven’t picked it up yet and have been on the fence, I highly suggest it.  I’ve been a huge fan of Too Faced products and the brand for years and I’m absolutely loving the Chocolate Bar line.  The Chocolate Bon Bons palette was a great addition in my opinion and I’m really enjoying the palette and the gorgeous shades it includes.

Happy Monday.  I haven’t been using much makeup lately, since I’ve been on mommy mode and a bit lazy, but since it’s Monday, I figured for Makeup Monday I would share a palette that I’ve been enjoying.  I have been a huge fan of Missy Lynn (Start2FinishMUA) for quite a while and was excited with the release of her Missy Lynn palette a few months ago through BH Cosmetics.  I purchased it immediately after it was released and I wanted to share my thoughts on this palette with you.

BH Cosmetics Missy Lynn Palette

“Start with Confidence.

Finish with Success.”

– Missy Lynn

For those who don’t know, Missy Lynn, otherwise known as Start2FinishMUA (via YouTube and social media) has been a YouTube Beauty Guru now for quite some time and winner of the NYX Face Awards 2013.  I started watching Missy Lynn years ago when she first started on YouTube and have been a fan since.  An active Military member by day and Glam diva by night.

The BH Cosmetics Missy Lynn Eyeshadow and Baked Highlighter Palette retails for $18.95 (CURRENTLY ON SALE FOR $11.95) and includes six (6) large sized eye shadows and two (2) baked highlighters.  This palette boasts shades that can be used on any skin tone (which I love), and can take the wearer from a day-to-night look easily.   It is a limited edition palette so I wanted to share it with all of you should you decide you want to pick it up.

BH Cosmetics Missy Lynn Palette

The purple, gold and bronze shades in this palette have really made it a winner for me to use.  The colors offer nice pigment and I like that there are a blend of satin and metallic type shades.  The highlighters in the palette also do double duty for eye shadow shades as well.  I think overall this palette will offer anyone something perfect for on the go (it travels really nicely) and while the shades are pigmented, they can also be worn sheer or softer with a light hand.

BH Cosmetics Missy Lynn Palette Swatches

I have noticed lately that a lot of makeup palettes I’ve been purchasing have had issues with a layer on the top of them that require me to take a tissue or paper towel and lightly wipe the top layer.  This was definitely the case in this palette, especially for the lighter shades.  At initial swatch, before using the napkin to remove the top layer, testing the product yielded light pigmentation.  After using the napkin however, each color picked up nicely and the pigmentation of each shadow was definitely there.  The darker shades and those that have metallic texture are the ones that are buttery and offer high color payoff off the bat, where as the satin and lighter shades took a bit to build up on – but that was just initially.  I find that they work well now after using it a few times.

BH Cosmetics Missy Lynn Palette Swatches

The highlighter shades are gorgeous and really pigmented.  They blend out nicely and are not as powdery as I would expect a baked anything to be.  They wear nicely wet as a foiled shadow but I’ve been enjoying them as a soft highlight on my cheek bones.  Highlighter swatches are done dry on bare skin, no primer used.  Each photo was taken in natural lighting.

BH Cosmetics Missy Lynn Palette
Since wearing makeup has been non-existent for me lately, I only have a cellphie (cell phone selfie) photo to share.  But overall you can see how nicely the shades look against my skin.  The highlighter did not pull up nicely in the photo, but don’t worry – it was still very prominent and my cheek bones were absolutely stunning.  My favorite highlight is the rose gold… with a soft fluffy brush, it offers a perfect highlight for my skin tone every time.

This palette is allergy and clinically tested which make it a plus for this lady who has sensitive skin.  I love that it is not only non-irritating, but it is also Cruelty Free.

BH Cosmetics Missy Lynn Palette

I have been a long time fan of BH Cosmetics palettes as they offer some good products for great price points.  This palette is fun and I love that the packaging really says a lot about who Missy Lynn is… the chains and dog tag represent her being an active military member and it’s still girly which is the type of person Missy Lynn is.  This is definitely a fun palette to have in any collection and I know I’ll be getting some use out of it for sure.

NEW NYX Palettes Spring 2014

This year NYX released some new goodies to their line… from their Butter Lipsticks and Colored Mascaras to some new and fun palettes.  Included in some of those new NYX palettes is the Adorable Palette, Sex Bomb Palette and Dream Catcher Palettes.  I have been testing out these new palettes for the last couple of months and wanted to share my thoughts on the products themselves as well as swatches and photos.  Check out my video review embedded below or click here to watch it directly on YouTube.  Keep reading on below the video for swatches and my thoughts.

I hope you enjoyed my video review – please Subscribe, Comment and Like!

Let’s talk Sex Bomb Palette.  This palette comes with six gorgeous shades that are perfect to create a bold and sexy smoky eye.  This palette retails for $7.50 on NYX’s website and was released along with the Adorable Palette (pictured below).  Most of the shades on this palette offer great color pay-off and pigmentation.  They can be a little powdery – but still apply nicely with a great base and/or primer.

NYX Sex Bomb PaletteThe shimmery taupe shade is probably the least of my favorite in this palette as it is very shimmery and leaves behind quite a bit of glittery fall out.  I definitely suggest applying that shade over a creamy/sticky base to keep the shimmers from falling but also to keep from the shadow disappearing after applying.  This shade lasted the shortest on my eyes and creased very easily, even if over my best base and primer.  I attest it to the shimmer and while it can be a pain, it’s still a gorgeous shade.  The black and cream shade in this palette is absolutely awesome – giving you great color pay-off and the matte taupe is a favorite to use all over the lid or as a transition shade.  The red looks like a red in the palette but it did seem like a red with a pink tone to it when used on the eye or swatched.  It’s not a shade I would use often, but it is gorgeous and I love that it is matte.  The charcoal shade in the palette has shimmer, but looks great for smoky looks.  Overall I’m impressed with the NYX Sex Bomb Palette and think it would be a cool addition to any collection, especially at its price point.

NYX Sex Bomb Palette Swatches

Next… the NYX Adorable Palette.  Similar style in packaging to the Sex Bomb palette (and the Natural palette released last year), the Adorable Palette includes soft neutral shades to create an every day neutral eye or even bump it up for a smoky eye.  This palette includes 6 shades in a selection of soft shades to create gorgeous eye looks for those that are looking for a palette that does not include bold bright colors.  If you are someone that loves neutral/nude colors, this would be a great palette for you.  Like the Sex Bomb Palette, this retails for $7.50 and can be found on NYXcosmetics.com, Ulta.com and select stores that carry the brand.

NYX Adorable Palette

This palette is probably my favorite out of the three that I am reviewing here.  The shades are the most universal for me since I do not use bold shades often.  Even if they look like soft neutral colors, you can easily create a bold and daring look with little effort.  I created the smoky eye below using this palette and it was easy and fun.

Valentine's Day Bombshell Makeup Tutorial

A tutorial for the look above can be found here and products used can also be found here.

I’m quite impressed with the colors and their quality in this palette.  The shades are pigmented and you can always build them up easily if you are going for a deeper, bolder look.  While some of them may be a tad bit powdery, blending was easy and the color pay off was great.  The shade that was not my favorite would be the Shimmery brown shade, while absolutely gorgeous with its gold shimmer, you lose the shimmer while blending and you can experience some fall out.  The base for that shade (the dark brown) is still pretty pigmented however, so if you are not interested in the gold micro glitters that are in that color, the dark brown works well.

NYX Adorable Palette Swatches

I love that the Adorable palette is like an all-in-one.  It not only offers you lid and crease shades, you get transition, highlight and even an outer-v shade to create a plethora of eye looks.  I think this palette is probably my favorite because it allows me to use one palette to create a look instead of dipping into my collection to pull for a transition shade or highlight – which I often do with other palettes I own.

NYX Dream Catcher Dusk Til Dawn Palette

The Dusk Til Dawn Palette (Dream Catcher Palette) comes with 10 shades.  It is one out of 3 Palettes that is included in the Dream Catcher Palette Collection.  These are said to be Limited Edition though they have been available on NYX’s Website, Ulta and various Drug Store locations for the last few months – so I’m not too sure if they will hang around a little longer.  Each palette in the Dream Catcher Collection retails for $15 and include rich neutral shades that you can use to create smoky eyes or every day looks.  The particular palette I received (Dusk Til Dawn) includes neutrals and a purple toned shade to create looks.

Dusk Til Dawn Swatches NYXWhile the shadows appear to be very pigmented and have a buttery texture, they do offer a heavy amount of fall out and can be very powdery when applying.  I felt that it was quite a challenge working with the shadows because of how powdery they were, but the shades themselves were absolutely gorgeous and offered a great variety for creating a daytime/neutral look or smoky eye.  When working with these – I needed to apply them over a sticky base and I also needed to consistently build up on the color to get the color pay off that you see in the swatches above.  Overall – I think the shades could use a little work, but I would love to see NYX come out with another one similar once the formulation on these shadows are fixed.  As I said before – the colors are gorgeous, they just don’t offer the pigmentation and buttery quality I look for when using eye shadows.  Staying power was also an issue as after just a few short hours, even the dark shades were faded on my eyes over a great primer.

Final Thoughts

I have been using NYX products since 2007 and for the most part, I am always impressed with their quality – especially since the brand is affordable.  For the most part, I think these palettes are pretty good – though I do think the Dream Catcher palette could use a little tweaking in formulation.  If you are just starting off or are seasoned in makeup, I think any of these would be great additions to your collection.  Do you own any of these palettes?  If you do, I would love to know your thoughts on them and if you don’t… what palette do you have your eyes on?
