Current Beauty Favorites

Lately I’ve been using some new products and a little more of some old products and I am dying to share them with you. With the New Year here it’s all about glowing skin, feeling great and looking even better!  So let’s get into it!

Tarte Cosmetics Tartelette 2 Palette  $45.00


This Palette is perfect for just about any eye look! On days where I want a more natural nude look I find myself gravitating towards my Tartelette 2 Palette and on those nights out I use it for a nice smokey look too!

OPI Nail Lacquer “It’s In the Cloud” $10.00


I am definitely a girl’s girl which means I absolutely love keeping my nails and toes painted.  Because Im in the salon religiously every two week for my nails AND I use gel polish, I like to keep a few really great quality polishes with me for those at home pedicures and this color is one I am obsessed with!  OPI polish is a nice thick lacquer and in my experience it is definitely long lasting!

Mario Badescu Healing & Soothing Mask  $20.00


Let’s be honest with ourselves ladies, we ALL want glowing skin and this mask helps me achieve that.  It’s a great feeling going into Sephora looking for a Full Coverage Foundation and being told you don’t need it (of course I still want it)  I am the biggest fan of Mario Badescu skincare and this mask is great for twice a week leaving skin extremely soft and glowing!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick “Sepia” $20.00


Who doesn’t love a lippie and I love the nudes and I’m just going to be real with myself I am obsessed with liquid lipsticks like the ABH one above.  I have found myself reaching for this color for the last 2 months and I know ladies I am way behind! Sepia is the perfect cool tone nude with the smallest hints of grey, perfect for every skin tone!

I’m dying to know what your current beauty favorites are!

HEY LOVES – I’M DANIELLE or DANIE – THE LIFE LOVING GIRL BEHIND XOXODANIELLEMONE! I’m currently 28 years old and I live in Orlando, FL with my husband Jeff + our fur baby Bleu (like the cheese), a Blue Nose Pitbull who you can follow on Instagram at @greeneyedbleu. I share our life together and my style here on XOXODanielleMone and on Instagram. I definitely love the colors pink, orange and yellow and all things style but I also love: a great cocktail, home decor, fresh flowers, and spending time with my family (hey mom!).

  1. Loveeeee this post! I’ve been hearing a lot of great things about the Mario Badescu products! I’m dying to try some of them! I’ll have to pick up the mask you mentioned!! And I want to try the drying lotion. Oh and I can’t forget the ABH liquid lipsticks!! Ahhh! I’m so excited! 🙂


  2. That palette looks beautiful. I’m a big fan of natural tones and those are just right. 45 dollars is a lot but I can understand why it might be worth it. If it’s good, it’s good. I’ve never heard of Mario Badescu but i’m always looking for things that’ll help my skin look better. I’m personally a big Lush fan, their stuff just works wonders for my skin. I’ll look into that mask.

    Loving your blog by the way, would you be interested in sharing your work elsewhere, letting your voice be heard, and also taking your writing to the next level? I’d love to talk to you about our platform. Simply shoot me an e-mail if you’re interested, you can find my contact details on my blog. Hope to hear from you soon.


    1. Yeah it was definitely more of splurge than I’m use to but I wanted to invest in a good quality everyday palette that can also be used for night looks. Maria Badescu is one that I promise won’t disappoint. They have a very large line of products for all skin types

      What do you mean by sharing my voice elsewhere? What do you have in mind?
