I Will Be Going Dark In Solidarity

Published June 2, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

From now until June 7th I will not be posting my blog, using my Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram for the promotion of my blog… I will only be dedicating my social platforms to help promote this movement. I will take this time to reflect on how I can not only better understand the plight and pain of my brothers and sisters but also take the time to listen and reflect on their needs and their words.

As a latina I stand with my black brothers and sisters in solidarity and I will do all that I can to support their cause.

Our world is bleeding, it’s hemorrhaging and with the way things are going there is no tourniquet in sight.

Well dolls … there you have it … my entire makeup collection … If you’ve stuck with me through all 12 posts I thank you from the bottom of my heart… I had a blast creating this series and it’s nice to catalogue one’s makeup to keep a track of what is at one’s disposal.

What I’ve learned from this is …

  1. I don’t need anymore eyeliners for a while.
  2. I don’t need mascaras probably for the rest of the year.
  3. I have a crap ton of nude and nude-ish lipsticks … time to add some fun colors.
  4. I still have makeup in my collection that just doesn’t wow me…. perhaps it’s time for another declutter of my collection.

Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits and health.

Remember … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

A Wonderful Gift From My Niece

Published May 31, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I’m still experiencing a Fibro Flare so I’m still stuck in bed.

Today I received a package in the mail that cheered me up.

My niece from my hubby’s side of the family sent me a present in the mail.

She bought me a Hollywood Lights Makeup Mirror!!!!

This thing is amazing!!! It has 3 color settings: day, evening, and artificial.

It also has a dimmer button to adjust the brightness.

It’s a rechargeable mirror so no more battery waste.

It also came with a 10 x magnifying mirror that can be attached for close work like eye brow plucking.

I am so happy and feel so blessed at this amazing gift.

Well… that’s all for now dolls.

Enjoy the rest of your day/night.

Remember …. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

My Makeup Collection Vol. 10 The Face Palettes

Published May 31, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope.

I’m back with Vol.10 of my Makeup Collection Series … the rest of the series can be found:

Vol 1. The Primers

Vol 2. The Foundations Part 1

Vol. 2 The Foundations Part 2

Vol. 3 The Concealers

Vol. 4 The Helpers (CORRECTORS, MIXERS, AND CONTOUR)

Vol. 5 The Bronzers

Vol. 6 The Blushes

Vol. 7 The Highlighters

Vol. 8 The Face Powders

Vol. 9 The Eyeshadow Palettes Part 1

Vol. 9 The Eyeshadow Palettes Part 2

Today we’re diving into my face palettes collection

Benefit Babe on Board *$30 Limited Edition-still available through QVC*

I purchased mine off the Beautylish website.

This is a palette of mini products and you get :

  • Hoola Matte Bronzer (.14 oz): original medium tan with a matte finish
  • Rockabye Powder Blush (.08 oz): warm rose with a natural finish
  • Dandelion Twinkle Powder Highlighter (.05 oz): nude pink with a shimmer finish

This is a super cute palette. Great for travel since it’s a blush, bronzer,and highlight all in one.

Believe Beauty Get Glowing Highlight And Contour Palette $5 only at Dollar General Stores.

This one is in the Light/Medium.

This one reminds me of the Babe on Board Palette… the blushes in both palettes are almost the same tone and the highlights have the same texture.

Again this is a great travel palette and it’s pretty good qaulity.

Rimmel London Kate Sculpting Palette *Discontinued but can be found on Amazon* I have it in the color way Coral Glow.

I purchased this one when I did my full face of Rimmel post.

It’s an OK palette I guess… I’m not wowed by it but I don’t mind using it either. The coral blush is supper pretty, the bronzer and highlighter are a bit lack luster.

California In A Box Bronzer & Blush Palette $14.99 for .5 ounces of product at Ulta.

You get 2 Matte Bronzers , 1 satin and 1 matte blush is a pretty coral shade and 1 champagne highlighter.

This is a pretty good palette.

Makeup Geek Palette I put together The 3 blushes are the same color Spellbound (a salmon coral matte) and the blush is Sunkissed (warm light brown)

these colors are available in the re-brand in square pans.

BH Cosmetics Glowing in Greece 6 Color Blush and Highlighter Palette $16 on their website.

You get 3 blushes and 3 highlighters (all 3 blushes are satin).

This is a great palette!!! I truly enjoy reaching for this one.

Tarte Treasures Collector Set *Was limited edition* This is a complete face palette… has blush bronzer highlighter and eyeshadows.

This palette just doesn’t impress me that much. It’s a pretty color scheme but this is just a lack luster palette … great for a beginner but not my favorite palette of the moment.

Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette Gorgeous, Glowing Beauty $75 on the Beautylish website.

While this palette is pretty and I love Charlotte Tilbury … this palette just isn’t worth $75. I have other lower price point palettes that I can get more versatility out of.

Profusion Eye & Cheek The Artistry Palette $10 on their website.

This Palette has both warm and cool tones and the qaulity is freaking amazing.

This one might be a little on the big side but it’s thin and so still travel friendly.

Well that’s all dolls. Hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits and health.

Remember … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

This is a dustier version of the Brown Sugar palette … still in the vein of warm neutrals. I love this palette so much. It’s a great everyday, work and school appropriate palette.

ColourPop Double Entendre Palette $18 on their website.

This palette has it all … warn and cool nudes …. mattes and metallics.

Such a nicely put together palette.

Catrice Cosmetics Basic Bae Palette $14 for .44 ounces of product at Ulta

This one is a basic neutral lovers palette with both matte and metallic shadows. This was my favorite part of my Catrice review.

Coastal Scents Revealed Rouge $20 on their website.

This one has a red color story that is just simply divine.

It’s the only Revealed palette I kept from my Coastal Scents review week. I decluttered the rest of the palettes. This one is super unique and I have loved every look I’ve come up with.

Urban Decay Born To Run Eyeshadow Palette $49 for .42 ounces of product at Ulta and Sephora.

This is 1 of only 2 Urban Decay palettes that survived my last declutter. I got rid of the rest of them. I absolutely love this palette! This is a great one for travel because it has all the nudes and still a pops of color. My favorite shade (although just a simple boring nude and not a pop of color)is Weekender. I so want them to release this shade in a single!! I’ve hit pan on it and this shade is a staple in my repertoire.

KVD Shae + Light Eye Contour Palette *I believe this one has been discontinued as I can not find a permalink to link back to a sale site*

This palette is broken into small quads… neutral,cool, and warm.

I love this palette. I love that it’s all mattes, I love that it’s got so much versatility within the quads. It’s a basic neutral palette.

Too Faced Born This Way The Natural Nudes Eye Shadow Palette $45 at Ulta and Sephora.

Hands down my best and favorite neutrals palette and also my favorite of the Too Faced palettes I own.

The first week I got this palette I couldn’t put it down! I have loved every look I’ve come up with using this little baby.

The shades flatter every skin tone. The mattes are finely milled the metallics have 2 different finishes .. there are some drier and some so buttery that they glide on effortlessly.

I can’t believe this palette still have that amazing chocolate scent to it.

The shadows are smooth and pigmented and blend like a dream.

This is the cool neutrals answer to the Chocolate Bar family (with that warm pop of the peanut butter shade).

This one still has the delicious scent of chocolate too. I have traveled many times with this one.

This is such a fun palette with those pops of pink and blue and purple in them and has a mix of warm and cook neutrals.

A great alternative to the standard nude neutral palettes on the market. This is a great one for weddings and special occasions and just for a spin on a neutral eye look.

ColourPop Nude Mood Palette $14 on their website.

I love pairing this one with my Brown Sugar palette a lot.

ColourPop Blush Crush Palette $14 on their website.

This is another palette that’s perfect for a wedding or special event. Soft muted pinks and mauves so expertly done.

ColourPop It’s My Pleasure Palette $12 on their website

I purchased this one because a reader requested a purple look. I fell in love because the purples are so rich and expertly done. It can be hard to get purple eyeshadows to preform well because that pigment is hard to create. ColourPop hit it out of the park with this palette and that 1 pop of baby pink just made this palette everything.

I purchased this one also because a reader requested a purple look and I wanted to have plenty of purple options to choose from. I love this pastel feel of the palette so much and it pairs well with the It’s my Pleasure palette.

Urban Decay Ultimate Basics Palette *Discontinued*

This palette is the 2nd of 2 palettes I kept from Urban Decay in my last declutter. I love that it’s an all matte, basic eyeshadow palette. I tend to pull shades from this palette to accompany other palettes.

It’s a great companion palette to own.

Well dolls. That’s it for this volume. Hope you have a nice rest of your day/night.

Remember … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO
