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.

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.

Vol. 9 The Eyeshadow Palettes Part 1

Today we’re diving into the 2nd 1/2 of my Eyeshadow Palettes collection … I wil not be blogging about what the palettes are billed as because I have a heap of palettes to get through and not all of my palettes are available still so I have no way of knowing what they were marketed as.

Today we’re diving into my Eyeshadow Palettes collection … I wil not be blogging about what the palettes are billed as because I have a heap of palettes to get through and not all of my palettes are available still so I have no way of knowing what they were marketed as. Any way without further ado let’s do this…

Revolution Beauty Reloaded Palette Basic Mattes $8 for 15 @ .04 ounces of product on their website.

This one is billed as truly compelling mixture of 15 smooth and rich shades, for matte-lovers everywhere! Featuring a wide spectrum of fundamental nudes, creams, beiges, browns and deep plums.

I’ve already reviewed this palette in my REVOLUTION (MAKEUP REVOLUTION) FULL FACE REVIEW . What it boils down to is this is an amazing palette and a staple in my collection.

ColourPop x Karruche Collab (limited edition and no longer available was $12 for .36 ounces of product) The Brown Sugar palette.

This is a warm tones neutral palette with tons of versatility. Compact for on the go and I find myself reaching for it as a back up to other palettes all the time.

ColourPop Going Coconuts Palette $12 for .36 ounces of product on their site (currently out of stock).

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.

Such a fun little palette that has it all.. from nudes to roses, to burgundy, from mattes, to glitters, to metallics and pressed pigments.

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.

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette $49 for .56 ounces of product at Ulta.

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.

Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar *Discontinued*

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.

Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons *discontinued but can be found on Amazon*

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.

Too Faced Chocolate Gold Palette $49 for .54 ounces of product at Ulta.

This one is basically an all metallic palette with 4 staple mattes.

This is my favorite pop of color palette that I currently own.

ColourPop She’s Got Solstice Palette $14 for .3 ounces of product at Ulta.

This is a great little coral based palette and that pop of moss green is amazing!

ColourPop Making Mauves Palette $14 on their website.

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.

ColourPop Lilac You A Lot $12 on their website

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.

ColourPop Mulan Palette $22 on their website

I could not wait to get my hands on this little baby!! I came up with 5 separate looks for this palette showing the versatility of it.

This is a great one for glam and drama.

 9 pan palette I created from Makeup Geek for 57.99 total which includes the z palette.

The shades in this palette are : Shimma Shima, a pale peachy flesh tone with a silver reflect. So Pale, a light vanilla matte. Rapunzel, a pale peach with gold reflect. Sand Dollar, a pale grey matte, Peach Smoothie, a true peach matte. Pumpkin’, a coral-orange hybrid matte. I’m Peachless, a pale peach with pink reflect. Tuscan Sun, a dusty coral pink matte. And finally Dark Roast, a dark true brown matte.

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.

Quick Beauty Haul 7th May 2020 Haul

Published May 30, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

I repurchased some of my Good molecules serums and toner … I accidentally purchased 2 Super Peptide Serums but that’s ok … back ups are a good thing.

This palette was sent to me by the company (after reaching out to me on Twitter) to review …. I will be reviewing it within the next couple of weeks.

The palette is called EY-322 16 color Eyeshadow Palette and runs for $14.

The shades from left to right are: Slow (vanilla metallic), Flip (vanilla matte), Steam (muted brown matte), Noir (dusty black matte), Glamour (tan matte), Diva (copper metallic), Splash (moss green satin), Trance (light blue satin), Sultry (rose gold metallic), Culture (dusty red matte), Awesome (navy blue satin), Curtain (iridescent satin with a green/purple flip),Cross (chocolate metallic), Nolly (burnt orange matte), Stylin’ (vibrant fuschia metallic), and Mud (deep burgundy matte).

The shadows were swatched on a bare arm with no primer and in 1 pass.

The shadows are pretty pigmented (and hard to remove … I needed to use soap and water to remove it all). The mattes are finely milled and did not have any kickback, the metallics are drier but very pigmented, and the satins are buttery and mid-toned pigmentation.

Well that’s all dolls.

Have a great rest of your day/night and remember … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

I love this for baking the center of my face and the sides of my nose. I’ve tried this to just set my face with and I don’t like to use it that way… it’s too matte for all over the face. 1 (3 ounce) bottle lasts me about a year 1/2. You don’t need much of this powder at all… I will say it’s a very messy powder and that I hate the component that it comes in …. I wish it came in a sifter jar.

Today we’re diving into my highlighter collection … Let’s do this…

RachhLoves x Pixi The Layers Highlighting Palette $24 for 3 @ .09 ounces and 3 @ 27 ounces of product their website.(also sold at Target).

This one is billed as layering highlight for that perfect custom glow is just like layering an outfit – you build a look that’s uniquely you! Bring out your natural beauty and enliven your complexion, lids and cheeks with this multi-use glow-mix palette with a silky soft formula for the ultimate face glow, and lid hues enhance & add luminosity.

I love playing around with a combos of this palette. The highlight is endless with this one. I have mixed and matched every color combo under the sun with this one and I’m so happy to have it in my collection.

There is 1 shade that has a different texture to the rest – Knit is metallic but it feels smooth almost melted in formula…. it’s bizarre in a great way.

The shades from left to right (2nd picture) are: Lace, Zipper, Knit, Tee, and Clutch.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Beauty Light Wand $38 for .40 ounces of product on the Beautylish website (also sold at Sephora… also has 2 more shades than Beautylish) in the shade Spotlight (rose gold with silver reflect).

This one is billed as being able to enhance the skin’s luminosity for a high-gloss highlight that plays with the light and stays dewy all day. Velvety silica has magical, soft-focusing powers, and sensorial oil gives skin a silky-soft feel. Lindera extract magically mimics the effects of light for a youthful glow.

I had tried cream highlighters in the past and always hated the way they seemed to just sit on the surface of the skin, or how greasy they seem to make my face look.

I purchased this one to do a full face of Charlotte Tilbury and didn’t use it in that post…. I was worried about it … but I tried it a few days after and I haven’t stopped using it since!

I love this product so much … It is my favorite highlighter in my collection.

It’s high glow without looking greasy or like a disco ball. It melts into the skin for a seamless lit from within lilt.

I would say out of all the products I purchased from Charlotte Tilbury …. This is my all time favorite product.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Glowgasm Beauty Light Wand $38 for .41 ounces of product at Sephora (also available on the Beautylish website). It comes in 3 shades: Peachgasm (peach highlight), Pinkgasm (pink highlight), and Goldgasm (gold highlight) and I have it in Goldgasm.

Velvety silica has magical, soft-focusing powers, and sensorial oil gives skin a silky-soft feel. Lindera extract magically mimics the effects of light for a youthful glow.

This one, on me, is more subtle than the my Hollywood Beauty Wand in Spotlight. I swatched it heavy so you can see just how well it builds up but when I use it I do it in light dots to just enhance the high points of my face. When I want the glow to have a bit more dimension I always just go in with either a bit of powder highlighter or I go in with a bit of Spotlight to finish the look off.

Benefit Powder Boxed Highlighter $30 for.28 ounces of product at Ulta and Sephora and I have it in the shade Cookie (a golden pearl).

This one is billed as being a gorgeous glow is just a sweep away.

This is just the prettiest, creamiest, gleam of a highlighter ever. This one is light enough for fair skin and complex enough for deeper skin tones.

I purchased a back up of this highlighter just so that I wouldn’t ever be without it.

With a light hand it gives this other worldly glow to the skin, layered over a cream highlighter it just takes it to another dimension, and with a heavier hand it really pops with out looking like a disco ball.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Highlight Face Powder $36 for .35 ounces of product at Ulta and it comes in 3 shades Global Glow (neutral tan with silver sheen), Soft & Gentle (gilded peach bronze), and Gold Deposit (soft reflective golden bronze) and I have it in the shade Soft & Gentle.

This one is billed as a luxurious, slow-baked, velvety soft, domed face powder with a radiant finish.

I purchased this one around 4 years ago when I saw a YouTuber using it in a video and have loved it ever since.

It’s a buttery powder highlighter that just shines so vibrant but can also give a subtle ethereal glow to the face as well.

J Cat Beauty You Glow Girl Baked Highlighter $8.99 for .3 ounces of product at Ulta and I have it in the shade Twilight (a coppery gold).

This one is billed as a multi-dimensional baked formula in the You Glow Girl Baked Highlighter brings instant glow all day long due to high intense shimmer pigment. It is designed to complement all skin tones and all skin types. The smooth texture blends effortlessly and gives the perfect luminous finish that complete your look.

This is a pretty reflective highlighter… I have tried to go in with a light touch and still I get high pigment, high shine payout. For being a baked product it’s super buttery to the touch.

Makeup Revolution Highlight Reloaded $7 for .35 ounces of product at Ulta and it comes in 6 shades and I have it in the shade Dare to Divulge (rose gold).

This one is billed as the ultimate glow-up that is  intensely pigmented and will instantly brighten your complexion with a high-impact finish and super-flattering shimmer, this silky formula glides onto cheekbones seamlessly and just add to the bridge of the nose and illuminate the inner corners of the eyes for an all over glow. For an intense, foil-like finish use with a damp brush or one of our Fixing Sprays.

I just love the whole Reloaded line from this brand. You get high quality products at drug store prices. This is a beautiful highlighter with no glitter in it.

Milani Strobelight Instant Glow Powder $9.99 for .3 ounces of product at Ulta and comes in 2 shade Afterglow (an icy pink) and Sunglow (an icy champagne).

This one is billed as making strobing and highlighting easy for beauty novices to experts alike. Light-reflecting pearls create a radiant finish that define your features with a healthy, warm glow.

It’s a nice highlighter … not my favorite or even in my top 5 but I like it and I do reach for it from time to time.

Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder Compact $44 for .26 ounces of product at Sephora in the shade Highlight 01 (golden nude)… this also comes in 3 bronze shades.

This one is billed as an  ultrasmooth baked face powder that provides natural color with soft matte radiance with an ultralightweight formula that feels weightless on skin and applies smoothly and blends effortlessly. The smooth, silky, velvety texture feels comfortable, while the long-wearing formula lasts up to eight hours and stays color-true without oxidizing for an even wear. Each tile is hand-mixed with a unique design.

This was the first powder product I purchased from this brand and it sparked my love for all things Laura Mercier.

This is the most subtle highlighter I have ever had in my collection. It’s my go to everyday light wash of something glowy highlighter.

Jouer Powder Highlighter $24 for .16 ounces of product at Sephora and it comes in 8 shades, the one I have is Citrine (shimmering gold).

This one is billed as a long-wear, highly pigmented, powder highlighter with ultra-fine pearls and luminescent pigments to create a lit-from-within glow.

I purchased this one back when this shade was all the rage. I didn’t like it when I first got it, but as I started to venture out of my comfort zone with how glowy I liked my highlight to be, I learned to really like this one and as I curated my collection I have reached for it more and more.
