Hello Beauties!



...aka Missy Lynn recently partnered with BH Cosmetics in the release of her very own palette. Lynn hand picked colors and formulated this palette herself, wanting to provide a palette that could alone create a wide range of looks. Here are a few more photos of the palette, then I will get into my review below:

This Palette is really pretty. Just look at those highlighters!

A few finger swatches of the eyeshadows.

All of the shadows swatched on the back of my hand in order of the palettes layout. No primer.
REVIEW:

The Missy Lynn Palette on BHCosmetics.com listed as $18.85 but is currently on sale for $8.95. I believe I purchased it for $11.95. Over all a great go-to everyday palette. The colors can take your look from day to night and its large compact mirror makes in perfect to carry in your purse. I have absolutely no con's regarding the highlighters. In the image below, I'm wearing a mixture of both. They come together beautifully, yet shine beautifully on their own.

As far as the eyeshadows, I highly suggest using a primer to intensify the colors. Also for product longevity and to prevent creasing. Overall well worth the $11.95 I paid for it. Go a head and it get now while its on sale. What a steal!

Here I am wearing a mixture of both highlighters as well as the orange color eyeshadow in the crease of my lid.


Do you have this palette? What do you think about it? If not, do you plan on getting it? See you in the comments :).

Until next time,

Hello Beauties!

L to R: Peach Loo, Bare Nude, Plum Wine, Brown Sugar, Purple Affair, Baby Pink


I know what you're thinking, it has been a few weeks but I'm still here. Nicely settled in to my new apartment. Lately I've been focusing on the re-launch of my YouTube page.  Are you subscribed? Because I've uploaded 4 new videos over the past few weeks. Head over to my channel (AllThingsBee) and check them out. 

Let's move on to what you clicked the link to see, these gorgeous Ruby Kisses Matte Lipsticks. I have to say right off the bat that I like them much more than Milani's Moisture Matte Lipsticks that just released earlier this year. On top of that, they are cheaper at $2.99 while Milani's Matte lippies are $5.99. So there is that... Ruby Kisses 1, Milani 0.

Let's get into these swatches and review: 


My review:

Overall, I love these lipsticks. I love how they apply far better than Milani's Moisture Matte Lipsticks. As you can see, the color pay off is amazing and though they don't claim to be Moisture matte lippies I found them to be. Obviously some of these need a lip liner, especially baby pink (like whoa)! My favorites out of this bunch are Brown Sugar, Peach Loo and Bare Nude. They are all wonderful, but the one I could do without would be Baby Pink. I don't care to pair it with a lip liner or anything. I just don't care for the shade. If I want to wear something that bright, I'd probably pull my Saint Germaine by M.A.C first. Any who if you are trying to figure out between Ruby Kisses or Milani, go with Ruby Kisses for affordable Matte Lipsticks! :)

I wish I had more to say. This is probably my shortest review ever. I absolutely love them. Find them at your local beauty supply store for $2.99.

Do you own any of these lipsticks? If so, what's your opinion of them?

Until next time,

HELLO B e a u t i e s!





Hello my lovely blog readers. I'm here today to let you all know (if ya don't know) that I'm back on YouTube. Over the past few years I would randomly put out videos. They were never consistent and the quality always changed based on my videographer/husband's availability. This was a problem for a number of reasons. 

1. I'm a "do it yourself" kinda girl so relying on my husband to film and edit for me drove me crazy.

 2 I like to have my own things. Ok yes, my husband has fancy camera equipment but I wanted/needed my own. 

He works just as much as I do and I'm no one to wait around to get something done. So I just decided to put my channel on the back burner until I could fund my own equipment; and that's exactly what I did.  My two newest videos/tutorials are posted below so check them out. Don't forget to subscribe after you do. Tell me, what kind of videos would you like to see from me? Monthly favorites, husband tags, vlogs, a certain makeup look? Please, please...Let me know! I have almost 3k subscribers (whoop!) and my husband keeps hinting that he'll have a 20k subbie surprise for me. I was like dang...20k tho? lol I'm just glad he didn't say 100 (even tho I will get there). All in stride...

Hmmm I wonder what it is....
Any who, here they are for your viewing pleasure.

Love you all!

Hello Beauties!

 Today I'm coming to you with a review on
 Yves Saint Laurent's Mascara Volume Effect Faux Cils!


YSL Mascara Volume Effect Faux Cils is not new to the scene. This classic item is back with an all new lash care formula. Its secret is the Triple- Intensity Formla: Intense Volume, Intense Color, and Intense Care. Its intended to extend the length of your lashes to appear as selfies; while leaving your lashes soft to the touch. I put on a few of coats of this mascara and as time went by I totally forgot it was on. I was totally rubbing my eye and felt no crispy lashes. 

Here is a quick before and after using this mascara. I am wearing no makeup in this photo. Just the mascara.  
                
OK. Now that you've seen my before and after I will say without a doubt that I am in love with this mascara. My lashes look so fine! Its super fluffy and dense mascara want caught even the smallest/shortest of lashes and bought them out to play. They look and feel moisturized as well. I've gotten use to dry, crispy lashes but now I see that is not the way to go. I mean, who has ever thought about moisturizing their eye lashes? Yeah, no body. You have to try it for your self and feel the difference.  


This mascara comes in 6 beautiful colors. If I were ballin' like Lebron James, I'd buy them all. *LOL* High Density Black, Rich Brown, Extreme Blue, Fascinating Violet, Burgundy, and Deep Night.Also, its the strangest/coolest thing. This mascara smells wonderful! I promise you it smells of some sort of flower. I could smell my eyes even 5 minutes after I applied it. To me, that's pretty cool.

So will you be giving this mascara a try? What's your current favorite mascara?



 *Thank you YSL & Influenster for selecting AllThingsBee to receive this product for testing purposes.*




Hello Beauties!

Becca Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector "Opal"


If you follow me on Instagram then you've seen this photo already. Many of you have asked "what is it that has me glowing to the high heavens?" Welp, the title of this post gave it away. Becca Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector in "Opal" is a highlight holy grail! First, before I go on professing my love for this beauty item, do know that I did indeed purchase it with my own money.




Last week a trip to Sephora was in order, mainly to re-up on my Cover FX Anti-Aging Primer for my makeup kit. Heading to the register, I saw the Becca Cosmetics section and decided to check out "Opal" as its been all over social media lately.  I swatched it, OMGosh'd and gasped at its beauty. I didn't buy it that day, but the everlasting swatch on the back of my hand caused me to return a few days later to do so.



Its ever-shimmering creamy light texture won me over. I recently bought a compact highlighter from mac and while I love it, I didn't love it this much. A little bit goes a long way. Its not one of those highlights that you have to continue to build to reach the high heavens. You kinda have be careful not to add too much. Do you have this product? If so tell your thoughts below. If not are you planning on getting it? If so....


                                        
Key Places to Highlight:

Brow Bone
High point of Cheek bones
Forehead (lightly)
Down the Bridge of your Nose
Cupids Bow (above your top lip)
and Chin!

Now go ahead and get your G L O W on!
