The Dream Palette Challenge Day 1 : Dream Matte Palette

Published June 30, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag
This is a challenge that was created by newlipstickclub1 , shimmershanny , and pan.o.ramics on Instagram.

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

So after posting my Dream Matte Palette from yesterday I had been speaking with newlipstickclub1 on Instagram and turns out there were some rules for the challenge that I didn’t know about. So I thought it would be fun to redo this challenge the right way …. so let’s get started

Here is the full Dream Palette Tag provided to me by newlipstickclub1

Day 1: Dream matte Palette: Pick 9 of Your Favorite Matte Shades & Swatch Them to Make Your Own Palette!

  • As always the picture on the left will be the picture with no flash and the one on the right will be the one with flash …. All swatches are done on bare skin with no primer and in 1 pass.

If I had to (gulp) only chose 9 mattes …. I would have to opt for a basic neutral palette because I feel that I could get the most millage out of a basic neutral matte palette more than if I had fun pops of color mixed in.

The shades in my 9 Pan Matte Palette would be:

Matt Malloy (pure white – from The Balm Meet Matt(e) Nude palette), I chose the white shade because it can help me lighten some of the mid tone browns and also act as an inner corner and brow line highlight. I’ve even used this shade to brighten up my under eyes and also as the center spot of my mobile lid for an all matte halo eye.

Here Me Out (white peach – ColourPop single eye shadow), I chose this as my brow bone highlight because it’s just the perfect undertone for my brow line. It’s also stunning on the mobile lid with just a hint of color through the crease.

the 4th shade of the Juvia’s Place The Nudes palette (light rose), I chose this shade because I can’t not have a coral type shade in any palette I own. This is a rose that leans coral and is so pretty as an all over wash of color or even just through the crease with a bit of shimmer on the mobile lids.

Bel Air (cool taupe – ColourPop single shadow), It’s a cool taupe must I say anything else? This is the perfect contour shade for the crease when you don’t want a “makeup” makeup look. It’s also great to help deepen the light rose shade, and it’s a great under eye shade as well.

the 6th shade of the Juvia’s Place the Nudes palette (deep yellow camel), I love me a good camel nude. This one is so simply beautiful all over for a wash of color it also loves amazing paired with the white peach shade.

Maple (yellow based tannish brown – from the Too Faced Born This Way The Natural Nudes Eye Shadow palette ), My all time favorite shade Too Faced has ever come out with! I live for this shade. When I hit pan I will totally repurchase this palette just so I can have this shade still in my life.

Sea Stars (medium yellow brown – ColourPop single shadow),  This shade again is just so beautiful as an all over wash of color with just a pop of shimmer in the middle of the mobile lid. It’s also a great blender shade for deeper colors.

Soothe Matte (camel – from the Tati Beauty Textured Neutrals Vol 1 palette), This has to be the prettiest camel shade I have ever owned. Tati knows what she is doing with her color selection because this palette in general is fire! But soothe is my all time favorite shade of the whole palette.

and the 1st shade of the Juvia’s Place the Chocolates palette (deep chocolate brown). I was torn been between needing a deep brown and a black … but this shade is the perfect amalgamation of the two. It’s deep enough that I just don’t miss having a black matte in a 9 pan palette with this one in it.

Well there you have it dolls. My Dream 9 Pan Matte Palette…. What are your go to shades you couldn’t live without if you only were able to choose 9 shades for an all matte palette?

Hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good health and spirits.

Remember … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Quick 3rd Beauty Haul for June 2020

Published June 30, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

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

I have a very short haul for you. So let’s jump into it….

I purchased (with the try before you buy option) the new Il Makiage F*uck I’m Flawless Multi-Use Perfecting Concealer ($26 on their website) . You get .23 fluid ounces of product with a doe foot applicator. This concealer comes in 30 shades (10 for fair, 10 for medium, and 10 for deep skin tones) and I purchased mine in the shade 2.5. This concealer is billed as a long-wear, lightweight concealer that instantly covers under-eye circles, blemishes, dark spots & hyperpigmentation with an advanced vegan, cruelty-free, oil-free & paraben-free formula. A long-lasting wear with medium-to-high buildable coverage.

The picture on the left is with no flash and the one on the right is with flash… this was swatched on bare skin with no primer and in 1 go.

What I noticed from swatching this concealer was very light-weight with, I would say, a solid medium coverage. I left the swatch on to see if it would sink into the fine lines of my hands and it did not. I’m really excited to try this concealer.

Free gift with purchase

I received the Il Makiage InkLiner ($21 on their website for .04 fluid ounces) in the shade Black as a free gift with purchase. It’s billed as an intensely pigmented, extremely long hold waterproof liquid inkliner for thin, natural or dramatic eye definition. Velvet matte finish with up to 14 hours of wear time.

The picture on the left is without flash and the one on the right is with flash, again done on bare skin with no primer and in 1 pass.

What I have noticed from swatching this one is that #1 it is insanely pigmented. This has got to be the deepest black liner I have ever owned. #2 It will bleed … as you can see from the swatches it seeps into the fine lines of the back of my hand. #3 I do not think this one is water proof at all. I left this on for a few minutes for it to dry down completely and barely touched a baby wipe to it to try and remove and it completely came off in one swipe.

I purchased this with my skin care order from Beautylish

Charlotte Tilbury Rock ‘N’ Kohl Eye Liner ($27 on the beautylish website for .04 ounces of product) in the shade Eye Cheat (beige). These eye liners come in 7 shades and are billed as the ultimate sexy, smudgy “bedroom eye”. A silky-smooth glide of a liquid liner and the soft, sooty, pigment-rich payoff of kohl with a a waterproof, long-lasting formula that sets after 30 seconds that lasts for up to 14 hours.

The picture on the left is without flash and the one on the right is with flash. This swatch was done on bare skin with no primer and in 1 swipe … it looks like it skipped but it didn’t the pencil is very soft and broke whilst swatching.

What I have noticed from swatching this one is that the pencil is soft but hearty. It’s super pigmented and does in fact set down in 30 seconds. This one is truly waterproof. I had to use oil to remove it.

Well dolls … that’s all for now … I do have 2 orders from my June beauty buys that are still in the mail so I will have to haul them with my July beauty buys …. I will mark them as purchased in June so that you can see what I purchased in June.

I hope you have a great rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits and health.

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

XOXO, Nita

My Ultimate Dream Matte Palette (Revised)

Published June 29, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I’m very low on energy the past few days. Turns out my Hashimoto Syndrome is acting up and my Thyroid and Kidney functions are really low. The doctor changed my meds again to try and help my Thyroid and Kidneys start to improve but until the meds start to work I’ll be low on energy, more than when it’s just the Fibromyalgia giving me trouble, so I probably wont be able to do my makeup for a few more days or so. With that said I came across this really cool makeup challenge from fellow word presser Katie of KatieEmma Beauty , who by the way is an amazing beauty blogger! Her blog is just chalk full of amazing reads…. seriously you should go check her out. She found this challenge on Instagram and the original creators of this challenge are newlipstickclub1 , shimmershanny , and pan.o.ramics .

This is an 8 day challenge that centers on you creating your dream palette of the day …. the day assignments are:

Day 1: Dream Matte Palette
Day 2: Dream Shimmer Palette
Day 3: Dream Nude Palette
Day 4: Dream Color Palette
Day 5: Dream Face Palette (using eyeshadow only)
Day 6: Dream Monochromatic Palette
Day 7: Dream Eyeshadow Palette
Day 8: Dream Eyeshadow Palette (using non-eyeshadow)

So let’s start with Day 1: My Dream Matte Palette….

  • PLEASE NOTE: I was contacted by newlipstickclub1 and she actually gave me the rules for this challenge … so I have decided to rename this post and start the challenge over.

Anyone who knows me knows I love bigger palettes and I also love matte shadows, they are my all time favorite shadows so for me to have my ultimate dream matte palette it would have to be a huge palette.

I put together my dream palette on Friday but had a hard time whittling it down to a smaller size …. by Sunday night I was able to whittle it down to 69 shades…. but this is the smallest I am willing to go with my dream palette… ultimately I would probably add 1 more shade to round it out to an even number but really these 69 shades are my ultimate dream palette to own, I really could not have a dream palette without all these shades in the palette….

*REMEMBER, when I do swatches , I always do my swatches on clean bare skin with no primer and in 1 pass…. also I always take a picture of the swatches with and without flash so that you can get a true sense of the colors …. the pictures without flash will be on the left and the ones with flash will be on the right or the ones with no flash will be on top and the ones with flash will be on the bottom*

My first row of my dream mattes palette would be:

My third row of my dream mattes palette would be:

Amber (burnt orange from the ColourPop Brown Sugar palette), Soothe Matte (camel from the Tati Beauty Textured Neutrals Vol 1 palette), Maple (yellow based tannish brown from the Too Faced Born This Way The Natural Nudes Eye Shadow palette ), Riff (deep camel from the Urban Decay Born to Run palette), Wake Up Call (warm sand ColourPop single shadow), Bel Air (cool taupe ColourPop sungle shadow), Sea Stars (medium yellow brown ColourPop single shadow), Good Thing (warm chestnut brown ColourPop single shadow), Extra Curricular (mid toned orange tan ColourPop Double Entendre palette), Saucy (yellow based tan from the ELF Opposites Attack palette), and the 6th shade of the Juvia’s Place the Nudes palette (deep yellow camel).

My fourth row of my dream mattes palette would be:

the 5th shade of the Juvia’s Place the Chocolates palette (mustard yellow), Yodit (dark mustard brown from the Juvia’s Place Warrior II palette), Kana (rosy dove grey from the Juvia’s Place Warrior II palette), Sandy Bum (light tones natural brown from the ELF Retro Paradise palette), Mojave Mami (mid toned sand brown from the ELF Earth and Ocean palette), Feathered (rich chocolate brown ColourPop single shadow), Finesse (deep mahogany ColourPop single shadow), Choc (reddish brown from the ColourPop Brown Sugar palette), Teddy Bare (warm mid toned brown from the ColourPop Double Entendre palette), and the 4th shade of the Juvia’s Place the Chocolates palette (rich warm red brown).

My fifth row of my dream mattes palette would be:

the 6th shade of the Juvia’s Place the Corals palette (a reddish brown), Henna (deep cool toned taupe from the ColourPop Brown Sugar palette), the 1st shade of the Juvia’s Place the Chocolates palette (deep chocolate brown), the 3rd shade of the Juvia’s Place the Chocolates palette (grey toned deep cool brown), Cloud 9 (plummy brown ColourPop single shadow), Ms. Brightside (deep red plum from the ColourPop Whatever palette), Bad Guy (true burgundy from the ColourPop Whatever palette), Jamata (deep tan based orange from the Juvia’s Place Warriro II palette), Jezebel (maroon from the Juvia’s Place Nubain II palette), and Sleeper (eggplant ColourPop single shadow).

My sixth row of my dream mattes palette would be:

Kahina (deep maroon from the Juvia’s Place Warrior III palette), Candace (dusty rosy coral from the Juvia’s Place Warrior III palette), Fanti (vibrant purple from the Juvia’s Place Warrior III palette), Easy Going (blue based lilac from the ELF Opposites Attract palette), Gola (vibrant sky blue from the Juvia’s Place Warrior III palette), Oasis (dusty blue grey from the Elf Earth an Ocean palette), Royal (classic royal blue from the ELF Retro Paradise palette), Abyss (deep ocean blue from the ELF Earth and Ocean palette),and Wise (mid toned forest green from the ELF Opposites Attract palette).

There you have it dolls. This would be my ultimate dream all mattes palette. If I had to add 1 more color to the palette to give it an even number of shades I think I would add the shade Memory Matte (carbon black) from the Tati Beauty Textured Neutrals palette so that I had the deepest black available to me for days when the charcoal black aren’t deep enough.

This challenge was fun to do and I thank Katie of KatieEmma Beauty for posting it. I do love doing tags and challenges and you should check out all of her posts for this challenge. She did an amazing job at putting together her dream palettes.

I will not be posting Day 2 until Wednesday so that I can take tomorrow to gather and swatch all of the shade for the next challenge day.

I still have makeup in the mail coming to me the first week in July so I will not be able to haul anything new for the last few days of June. With that said I still have to do my July beauty buys so I may have more than usual haul posts in the month of July.

My eye has healed almost completely there is just the slightest bit of dry skin on the upper lid and just a rough patch on the lower eye lid …. I think by Thursday it should be all better … I’ve been combating the dry and rough skin of that eye with Hyaluronic Acid serum and a bit of my night oil.

Well that’s all for now dolls…. Remember to check out Katie Emma’s blog, she really does have a great one …. 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.

The Lip Product Tag

Published June 27, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. Since I’m unable to play with my makeup for a while I’ve decided today’s post was going to be another makeup tag post.

The tag I’ll be doing this time around is called the Lip Product Tag and was created by YouTuber Jessica Braun. I’ve been watching her channel for the past 5 years and I just love her content. She is a sweet person who use to be a primary school teacher and has a love for Disney that is every bit as big as mine is. She does a lot of makeup reviews and she does amazing high end dupe videos as well. You can see here video of this tag here .

The categories of this tag are:

  • Newest Lip Product
  • Oldest Lip Product
  • Most Expensive Lip Product
  • Most Affordable Lip Product
  • Most Colorful or Boldest Lip Product
  • Lip Product Most Worth the Hype
  • Lip Product Most Not Worth the Hype
  • Favorite Lip Product from Favorite Brand
  • Most Used Lip Product
  • Most Underrated Lip Product
  • Most Nostalgic Lip Product
  • Most Disappointing Lip Product
  • Most Unique Lip Product
  • Best Smelling Lip Product

So let’s jump into this tag post…. For all the posts I will include a swatch with and without flash. The one without flash will either be the one on the left or the one at the top.

Newest Lip Product

The ELF Tinted Lip Oil $6 on their website in the shade Nude Kiss (light pinkish nude). These lip oils are infused with Jojoba, Apricot, and Vitamin E and smell like vanilla cupcakes.

Oldest Lip Product

Tarte Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint $20 at Ulta in the shade Exposed (nude pink). It is billed as a quick dry, full coverage, transfer-proof liquid lipstick with a comfortflex formula that moves with your lips without drying out, cracking or feathering. I did a declutter of my whole makeup collection and only 2 of my original lipsticks made the cut … this one and 1 from Rimmel London which I ended up using all the way up and have plans to repurchase.

Most Expensive Lip Product

Charlotte Tilbury Hot LIPS Lipsticks $34 at Sephora. This one is in the shade Kim KW (classic nude) and is billed as featured in a range from a light satin finish nudes to deep matte berries. A range of pop shades in pink, red, and orange hues rounds out the range and feature Charlotte’s signature square-angled tip that is designed to mimic a lip brush. I actually own I think 5 other shades in her line. I love her lip formulas so much.

Most Affordable Lip Product

Believe Beauty Satin Crush Lipstick (only available at Dollar General Stores) $4 and is billed as The perfect lip for everyday wear with one swipe color and buttery smooth texture. I have it in the shade Moroccan Spice (terracotta nude). I do love this lipstick but only own it in 1 shade because they are always sold out.

Most Colorful or Boldest Lip Product

ColourPop Lippie Stix (is part of the big box of lippie stix vault and no longer avaiable) in the shade Daytrip (vivid pink coral matte). Out of all 48 shades in this box set this is the most vibrant most bold lipstick in the set.

Lip Product Most Worth the Hype

For years these 2 shades from MAC where all over YouTube. Myth (light neutral nude) and Blankety (soft pink beige) and is billed as a creamy lipstick formula with a soft cushiony feel, medium-to-full buildable coverage and a satin finish. I have repurchased these shades countless times. They are just the perfect nudes for every look you can come up with. I love both shades so much that there is just no way for me to chose one over the other.

Lip Product Most Not Worth the Hype

Makeup Geek Show Stopper Creme Stain is billed as a highly pigmented, long lasting and the precision applicator offers effortless, buildable coverage. This creme stain formula will feel light on the lips throughout the day! When these first came out they were EVERYWHERE on social media so I purchased it in the shade Jitterbug (coral). This is the most drying most crusty product on the planet. It’s just horrible. It cracks and cakes up and dries out the lips. The only way I’m able to wear this is to add just a few dots into a light nude shade and top it with gloss.

Favorite Lip Product from Favorite Brand

ColourPop Lippie Stix $7 on their website in the shade Topanga (dusty coral). This is my all time favorite lip color on the planet. I have gone through 3 of these already. This is the perfect shade of coral (and as we all know by now, coral is my favorite lip shade).

Most Used Lip Product

NARS Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight (pink sherbet) $24 at Ulta and Striptease (nude) $24 on the NARS website. I use these 2 shades constantly. Even on days when I don’t wear any makeup I will more than likely be wearing one of these two. These lip glosses are a perfect formula …. not too sticky and even though it has fine mica in it it’s not overly glittery.

Most Underrated Lip Product

BH Cashmere Cream Comfort Lipstick $8 each on their website and are billed as a lightweight formula is available in an array of color-rich shades from neutral brown to deep red in a creamy matte finish. I have them in 4 shades but am going to be ordering more soon. I barely ever hear anyone talking about these lipsticks and they are AMAZING! They are super comfortable, long lasting, don’t bleed or feather outside the lip lines and are super opaque. They aren’t transfer proof but they are super long lasting on me. The two shades shown are Pref (a nude pink) and YAS (a coral nude).

Most Nostalgic Lip Product

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick $5.49 at Walmart is billed as High-intensity color for up to 8 hours, Sumptuously rich color, and Smooth, creamy texture. Specifically in the shade Airy Fairy (icy pinkish nude). I don’t have this one currently in my collection because I just finished it last week and really need to repurchase it. This shade holds the deepest part of my heart because I originally purchased it when I was on vacation to Philadelphia PA to visit my sister for my niece’s prom. I was doing her makeup for the prom and we picked this shade out together. I’ve been wearing it ever since.

Most Disappointing Lip Product

Makeup Geek Icon Lipstick in the shade Naive (soft peachy nude). This poduct is billed as a highly pigmented color in a shine finish leaves your lips feeling silky smooth. The sleek Rose-Gunmetal tubes feature a unique color indicator in the cap so you can easily find your ideal shade. The problem is, I really wanted to love this product because the shade is stunning, that it goes on patchy and streaky. You really have to layer it up a bunch to get an even color payoff. It’s just way too high maintenance for me.

Most Unique Lip Product

L’Oreal Rouge Signature Lightweight Matte Lip Stain $11.99 at Ulta. It is billed as the color impact of a liquid lipstick with a weightless, bare-lip sensation ultra-comfortable liquid matte lip stain that provides lasting matte color and gives lips intense color. I have it in 5 shades (this one is I Empower #418 – peachy nude). The formula of these lip stains are incredible! It literally feels like nothing on the lips at all. It’s such a perfect lip stain. I highly recommend trying these out.

Best Smelling Lip Product

Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Lip Cream $8.49 at Ulta. It is billed as being infused with a powerful blend of Murumuru Butter, Cupuaçu Butter and Tucuma Butter, from the lush and nutrient-rich Amazon. Packed with essential fatty acids and pro-vitamins that soften, condition and moisturize lips, leaving them silky soft. I have this is the shade Brazilian Sunset (peachy coral), they smell very sweet and have a sweet taste to them as well.

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

Remember, Save a spoon for a little lipstick.

XOXO

JKissa x ELF To the Rescue Palette Swatches and Review

Published June 25, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

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

It dawned on me that I never officially showed off my JKissa palette.

Since I’ve had plenty of days to play around with the palette I figured I would also do a mini review of it as well.

The JKissa x ELF To the Rescue Palette $20 at Ulta. It came with a sticker sheet so you could decorate the palette. I love Pitbulls so I chose these stickers to decorate mine.
My palette came with the green shimmer, blue shimmer and purple shimmer shade shattered ( and the deep purple shade also came with just a tiny corner cracked as well) so I used Isopropyl Alcohol to wet those shades and press them back together. In doing so the green and purple shimmer shades names wiped off.

There are 12 matte and 6 shimmer shades in this palette and the total amount of product is .52 ounces making each shadow just under .3 ounces each.

This palette is 100% vegan and cruelty free and is the 2nd collaboration between JKissa and ELF (the first being a 7 pan eye shadow palette, blue liner, and a mascara) and in this second collaboration there is the 18 pan eye shadow palette (which I have in the picture above).

This palette is so fun to play with.

There is a ton of kick back in the pans with this soft pressed palette and more often than not there is also a ton of fallout on the face. I’ve learned t’s best to slowly build up the pigmentation of the shadows in this palette to avoid the fallout.

I have noticed when working with these shades that sometimes the can get a little patchy. Particularly the purple shades, but also the orange and yellow shades can sometimes lift in certain areas of the shade whilst buffing out. Also worth mentioning is that the orange shimmer shade is can be a little tough to build because it’s not as pigmented as the rest of the shimmer shades.

The shades are moderately pigmented, with some of the shades being more pigmented than others.

The shades do buff into each other fairly well but I have noticed they do not work well with other palettes, save for the shimmer shades which work fine with other palettes.

For this palette I would give it a solid A+. simply because of the few little issues with the palette.

Now let’s take a look at the swatches …. remember that as always all swatches are done on bare skin with no primer and in 1 pass.

The picture on the left is with no flash and the one on the right with with flash. The shades from left to right are: Casey, Millie, Yosemite, Peaky, Canolli, and Sadie. These shades are the lighter more brighter versions of the rainbow color scheme.

The picture on the left is with no flash and the one on the right with with flash. The shades from left to right are: Pepper, Zuma, Paloma, Tank, Thatcher, and Pretty Girl. These shades are the darker more deeper shades of the rainbow.

The picture on the left is with no flash and the one on the right with with flash. The shades from left to right are: Strawberry, Tsuki, Firefly, Reagan, Bailey, and Confetti. These are the shimmery slightly metallic shades of the rainbow.

a 6 piece brush set called Furever Eyeshadow Brush Set (which I also purchased but is currently dirty) that retails for for $25 and is sold at Ulta (is sold out on the ELF website) which includes the: J1 (packer brush), J2 (multi tasker), J3 (fluffy blender brush), J4 (small bullet brush), J5 (angled liner brush), and J6 (flat definer brush).

The brush set has a rainbow handle with a purple ferrule. The synthetic bristles are super soft but also firm enough to preform their jobs well.

The brushes do not shed and they are some of the best quality of brushes ELF has put out to date.

My only wish would be that they would have come out with a face brush set too, but since JKissa doesn’t wear foundation I kind of understand why a set wasn’t created.

I give this brush set a solid A+++!!!! This again is the best brush set to date, in my opinion, that ELF has come out with.

and a eye shadow topper duo called Tsuki To My Heart that retails for $12 (at Ulta) for .3 ounces of total product and features the shades I’m Pupset (a bright green) and What a Pitty Smile (opalescent/clear). This was the only product I chose not to purchase simply because I don’t use eye shadow toppers much because they emphasize the texture of my lids.

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

Fun Rainbow Eyeliner Face of the Day

Published June 25, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey! How’s your day going? Great I hope. Mine isn’t going very well. I have insomnia right now and have not been to sleep in well over 37 hours. I’m still vomiting from the other day too.

I also injured my eye lid today. I was working with the ColourPop Crème Gel Colour ($7 on their website) in the shade Exit (true white) and it just didn’t go well. This is the worst gel liner in all the world! It went on patchy and it cracked and caked up and just did not go on well at all. Once I did get it on fully on it cracked again and when I tried to apply shadow over the top on it the shadow couldn’t lay down because of the cakeiness of it.

So I had to remove all of my makeup and start again. The problem was that I couldn’t get the eyeliner to come off and had to rub a little harder that I should have and ended up rubbing some of the skin away from my right eye. It was so sore that I ended up having to do this like today on just 1 eye and takes pictures hiding my other eye for today’s post.

It’s so sore and has begun to seep so I ended up putting Neosporin on it to soothe it. So just a little back story to why my pictures have my hand covering half my face. I just loved the look so much that I wanted to share it with you.

So today I’m not wearing any perfume since I am so nauseous today. So let’s jump into today’s Face of the Day….

Base:

I primed my face using Too Faced HangoveRX ($34 at Ulta) and I primed my pore areas using Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Ulta). I then used Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44 at Sephora) in the shade 3. For foundation today I chose a combo of 5 pumps of BECCA Backlight Priming Filter ($39 at Ulta and Sephora) and 3 Pumps of Benefit Hello Happy Flawless Brightening Foundation ($30 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade 4. I contoured the perimeter of my face and my nose using the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand ($38 at Sephora) in the shade Medium/Dark. I bronzed my face using Tarte Breezy Cream Bronzer ($29 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Grace Bay. I highlighted the high points of my face using Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Beauty Light Wand ($38 at Sephora) in the shade Spotlight. I concealed my under eyes using Juvia’s Place I Am Magic Concealer ($14 at Ulta and the Juvia’s Place website) in the shade J23 (fair skin with neutral undertones). I set my under eyes using Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder ($28 at Ulta and Sephora). I set my bronzer using Makeup Revolution Bronzer Reloaded ($7 at Ulta) in the shade Take a Vacation. I set my highlight using Too Faced Born This Way Turn Up The Light Highlighting Palette ($42 at Ulta and Sephora) in the Light color way and using the shade Glow. I set the rest of the face using Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Loose Setting Powder ($33 at Ulta) in the shade Translucent.  For my setting powder I’ve chosen BH Studio Pro Matte Finish Pressed Powder (usually $9.50 but on sale for $4.75 on their website) in the shade 230.

Eyes:

I set my brows using Believe Beauty Eyebrow Styling Gel ($4 only at Dollar General stores) in clear and filled in my brows using NYX Micro Brow Pencil (regularly $10 but on sale for $7.50 at Ulta) in the shade Brunette. I carved out my brow line and primed my lids using the  P.Louise Base ($10 pound sterling/ $12.08 USD on their website… can also be found on the Morphie website for $15) in the shade Rumour 0.5. For today’s eye look I used shades from the palette I created from CoulorPop and The JKissa X ELF To the Rescue Palette ($20 at Ulta). I started with the ColourPop palette. I used the shade Hear Me Out (white peach – matte) to set the brow line. I then went in with the shade Wake Up Call (warm sand – matte) from lash line to brow line. I then took more of the P.Louise Base and created a long thick wing. I then went in with the JKissa x ELF Palette. Starting at the inner corner I laid down Casey (red – matte). I then laid down Millie (orange – matte) and blended it into the red a bit. I then laid down Yosemite (yellow – matte) and blended it into the orange a bit. I then laid down Peaky (green – matte) and blended it into the yellow a bit. I then laid down the shade Cannoli (bright blue – matte) and blended it into the green a bit. Then finally I laid down the shade Sadie (purple – matte) and blended that into the blue a bit. I then went in with the corresponding shades of shimmers … in order then names are Strawberry, Tsuki, Firefly, Reagan, Bailey, and Confetti. I then went in with the shades Sea Stars (medium yellow brown – matte) and Good Thing (warm chestnut brown – matte) from the ColourPop palette on the lower lash line. I then used the shade Let Me Explain (ivory – matte) from the same palette to highlight my inner corner. I tight lined my upper and lower lash line using the Milani Stay Put Waterproof Eyeliner ($7.99 on their website and at most drug stores like Walgreens and CVS) in the shade 01 Linked on Black. I coated the top and lower lashes with Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes ($29 at Sephora) in the shade Glossy Black.

Cheeks and Lips:

For blush today I am wearing Tarte Sugar Rush Beach Cheeks Cream Blush ($15 at Ulta) in the shade Beaches and Cream (peachy pink). I set the cream blush using Makeup Revolution Blusher Reloaded ($7 at Ulta) in the shade Rhubarb & Custard (a coral matte). I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippe Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade Another Round (rosy nude). I then filled in my lips using ColourPop Lippie Stix (Only offered in the limited edition Big Box of Lippie Stix Vault from ColourPop and is no longer available) in the shade At Twilight ( warm muted coral – creme).

Final Thoughts:

Because my eye is so sore I’m going to take a few days off from Face of the Day posts.

I’ll still post some content but it wont be Face of the Day content.

I really do love the way this look turned out I think the liner is so super cute so once my eye heals I plan on redoing this look for both eyes.

Stay tuned later this week for my June Beauty Buys.

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

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

Fun Rainbow Eye Face of the Day

Published June 23, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I woke up extremely late today. I was woken up around 3 AM to have to vomit …. and continued to vomit on and off until around 6 AM. I slept in until 1 PM and didn’t get started on my makeup until around 3:30 or 4 PM …. still vomiting on and off all day … not sure what it is …. but with my Fibromyalgia I do get days like this when I’m just vomiting for no reason. It could also be because of my wisdom tooth, which is going to be extracted next month. At any rate, needless to say, I am not having a good day ….

I wanted to play around with the JKissa X ELF To the Rescue Palette ($20 at Ulta) today and I have to say I really love the look I came up with.

Obviously I am not wearing and perfume today since my tummy is upset. Let’s jump into today’s Face of the Day …..

Base:

I primed my face using Too Faced HangoveRX ($34 at Ulta) and I primed my pore areas using Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Ulta). I then used Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44 at Sephora) in the shade 3. For foundation today I chose a combo of 5 pumps of BECCA Backlight Priming Filter ($39 at Ulta and Sephora) and 3 Pumps of Il Makiage Woke Up Like This Flawless Base Foundation ($44 on their website) in the shade 040. I contoured the perimeter of my face and my nose using the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand ($38 at Sephora) in the shade Medium/Dark. I bronzed my face using Tarte Breezy Cream Bronzer ($29 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Grace Bay. I highlighted the high points of my face using Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Beauty Light Wand ($38 at Sephora) in the shade Spotlight. I concealed my under eyes using Makeup Revolution Supersize Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer ($7 at Ulta) in the shade C 6.5.  I set my under eyes using Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder ($28 at Ulta and Sephora). I set my bronzer using Makeup Revolution Bronzer Reloaded ($7 at Ulta) in the shade Take a Vacation. I set my highlight using Too Faced Born This Way Turn Up The Light Highlighting Palette ($42 at Ulta and Sephora) in the Light color way and using the shade Glow. I set the rest of the face using Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Loose Setting Powder ($33 at Ulta) in the shade Translucent.  For my setting powder I’ve chosen BH Studio Pro Matte Finish Pressed Powder (usually $9.50 but on sale for $4.75 on their website) in the shade 230.

Eyes:

I set my brows using Believe Beauty Eyebrow Styling Gel ($4 only at Dollar General stores) in clear and filled in my brows using NYX Micro Brow Pencil (regularly $10 but on sale for $7.50 at Ulta) in the shade Brunette. I carved out my brow line and primed my lids using the  P.Louise Base ($10 pound sterling/ $12.08 USD on their website… can also be found on the Morphie website for $15) in the shade Rumour 0.5. For today’s eye look I used shades from the palette I created from CoulorPop and The JKissa X ELF To the Rescue Palette ($20 at Ulta). I started with the ColourPop palette. I used the shade Bel Air (cool taupe – matte) as my transition shade. I then used the shade Sea Stars (medium yellow brown – matte). I then switched to the JKiss X ELF Palette. I started with the middle 1/3 of my mobile lid and using the shade Millie (a true orange – matte). I then used the shade Casey (a true red – matte) on the inner 1/3 of the mobile lid and also buffed this shade a little into the middle 1/3 shade. I then went into the shade Yosemite (a true yellow – matte) and buffed that into the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid and the outer v of the crease. I kind of messed up on the lower lash line, I should have started with the green shade on the lower lash line but instead I started with the blue …. I forgot the order of the rainbow …. but I think it still looks pretty good. For the lower lash line I started on the middle 1/3 of the lash line and went into the shade Peaky (a true green – matte). I then went into the shade Cannoli (a bright light blue – matte) over the inner 1/3 of the lower lash line. For the outer 1/3 of the lower lash line I used the shade Sadie (a bright purple – matte). I then went back to the mobile lid and layered over the red shade with the shade Strawberry (a berry red – shimmer). I went over the orange with the shade Tsuki (an orange with slight silver reflect – shimmer). I went over the yellow with the shade Firefly (a yellow – shimmer). On the lower lash line I went over the blue with the shade Bailey (a bright blue – shimmer). I then went over the green with the shade Reagan (a bright green – shimmer). I went over the purple with the shade Confetti (a purple – shimmer). I then took a combo of the shae shades Sea Stars and Bel Air from my ColourPop palette and buffed that bellow the colors of the lower lash line to create a drop shadow effect. I highlighted the inner corners using the Dazzle shade from the Too Faced Born This Way Turn Up The Light Highlighting Palette ($42 at Ulta and Sephora) in the Light color way. I tight lined my upper and lower lash lines using the Milani Stay Put Waterproof Eyeliner ($7.99 on their website and at most drug stores like Walgreens and CVS) in the shade 01 Linked on Black. I coated the top and lower lashes with Benefit Roller Lash Mascara ($25 at Ulta and Sephora). I then popped on a pair of lashes I had in my lash case … I don’t remember what style they are in.

Cheeks and Lips:

For blush today I am wearing Tarte Sugar Rush Beach Cheeks Cream Blush ($15 at Ulta) in the shade Beaches and Cream (peachy pink). I set the cream blush using Makeup Revolution Blusher Reloaded ($7 at Ulta) in the shade Rhubarb & Custard (a coral matte). I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippe Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade Another Round (rosy nude). I then filled in my lips using ColourPop Lippie Stix (Only offered in the limited edition Big Box of Lippie Stix Vault from ColourPop and is no longer available) in the shade At Twilight ( warm muted coral – creme).

Final Thoughts:

I placed a few orders on line for my June Beauty Buys.


I have a huge order coming from ELF that should be here by 6/25.

I have a skin care order and an eyeliner from Charlotte Tilbury coming from Beautylish that should be here by 6/26.

I have a smaller order from Makeup Revolution that should be here sometime this week – I made the mistake of ordering off the UK site intend of the US site so all of my items were shipped from over seas and I’m not sure how long that will take.

I also place an order from ColourPop (I created another 24 pan palette) and purchased one of their Ultra Gloss Lips and 2 pairs of false eye lashes) that should be here by 6/27.

So stay tuned for a huge Beauty Haul post.

Well I’m starting to feel queasy again so I’m going to end my post now. I hope tomorrow I’m feeling better. I really think it might be my wisdom tooth bothering.

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 dolls, Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Another Go to Makeup Look for Doctor’s Appointments Face of the Day

Published June 22, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. Sorry I went missing for 3 days…. wasn’t feeling too well so I needed to take a few days rest. I’m feeling much better today…although I slept through my 7 AM alarm and didn’t manage to get out of bed until 11:30 AM…. had a Doctor’s appointment today so I only just got home around 5:45 PM … I keep wanting to play around with my rainbow palette but I’ve had several Doctor appointments so I haven’t been able to play with too much color as of late… hopefully I’ll be feeling good tomorrow and then I can play with my JKissa X ELF palette some more.

Today I am wearing Juicy Couture perfume…. Let’s jump into today’s Face of the Day …..

Base:

I primed my face using Too Faced HangoveRX ($34 at Ulta) and I primed my pore areas using Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Ulta). I then used Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44 at Sephora) in the shade 3. For foundation today I chose Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation ($50 at Sephora) in the shade Beige 3.  I bronzed lightly using the Tarte Breezy Cream Bronzer ($29 at Sephora) in the shade Grace Bay. I highlighted the high points of my face using Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Beauty Light Wand ($38 at Sephora) in the shade Spotlight. I concealed my under eyes using NYX Born to Glow Radiant Concealer ($9 at Ulta) in the shade fair. I set my under eyes using Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder ($28 at Ulta and Sephora). I set my bronzer using Makeup Revolution Bronzer Reloaded ($7 at Ulta) in the shade Take a Vacation. I set my highlight using Too Faced Born This Way Turn Up The Light Highlighting Palette ($42 at Ulta and Sephora) in the Light color way and using the shade Glow. I set the rest of the face using Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Loose Setting Powder ($33 at Ulta) in the shade Translucent.  For my setting powder I’ve chosen BH Studio Pro Matte Finish Pressed Powder (usually $9.50 but on sale for $4.75 on their website) in the shade 230.

Eyes:

I set my brows using Believe Beauty Eyebrow Styling Gel ($4 only at Dollar General stores) in clear and filled in my brows using NYX Micro Brow Pencil (regularly $10 but on sale for $7.50 at Ulta) in the shade Brunette. I carved out my brow line and primed my lids using the  P.Louise Base ($10 pound sterling/ $12.08 USD on their website… can also be found on the Morphie website for $15) in the shade Rumour 0.5. For today’s eye look I used shades from the palettes I created from ColourPop. I started by setting my brow line using the shade Hear ME Out (white peach – matte). For my crease I used the shade Sea Stars (medium yellow brown – matte). I deepened the outer 1/3 of my mobile lid and the outer v of the crease using the shade Feathered (rich chocolate brown – matte). For the remaining 2/3 of the mobile I used the shade Party Favors (duo-chrome peach with a gold flip – metallic). I then used the shade Miser (duo-chrome terracotta with blue-green – metallic) over the middle 1/3 to blend the inner and outer parts of the mobile lid together. For the lower lash line I used more of the shade Sea Stars and then lightly deepened the lash line using more of the shade Feathered. I highlighted the inner corners using the shade Let Me Explain (ivory – metallic). I lined my lower waterlines using ColourPop BFF Creme Gel Liner ($6 on their website) in the shade Get Paid (metallic rose gold). I then coated my lashes with Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes ($29 at Sephora) in the shade Glossy Black. I then popped on a pair of Ardell Faux Mink Lash ($6.49 at Ulta) in the style #812 lashes. I highlighted the inner corners using the dazzle shade from the Too Faced Born This Way Turn Up The Light Highlighting Palette ($42 at Ulta and Sephora).

Cheeks and Lips:

For blush today I am wearing Tarte Amazonian 12-HR Blush ($29 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Seduce (rosy nude). I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade BFF (warm nude) and I filled in my lips with MAC Matte Lip Stick ($19 on the MAC website) in the shade Myth (light neutral nude). I finished off my look with Too Faced Born This Way Turn Up The Light Highlighting Palette ($42 at Ulta and Sephora) in the Light color way … I used the middle shade called Soft Focus as a finishing powder.

Final Thoughts:

I’ve been super sluggish this past few days … I also was in heaps of pain so I was pretty much bed ridden for the past 3 days. It’s good to be out of bed finally.

I made a huge 24 piece purchase off the ELF website to review some new to me products for the blog. I also made a small 6 piece purchase off the Makeup Revolution website … however I made a mistake and ended up purchasing from the UK site instead of the US site so it might take a while to get to me. I also made another Beautylish skin care purchase to top off my back ups.

I really want to make a huge Sydney Grace purchase too. I want to purchase a palette that I curate myself. That might have to wait till next month because it’s a bit spendy.

It’s beginning to rain here now in Florida (it’s our rainy season) and so my pain level is really high all the sudden … so I’m going to get going and lay down for a bit … I’m happy to be back and once again I am so sorry for going MIA for the past 3 days.

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

My Go To Doctor Visit Makeup Face of the Day

Published June 18, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I was up around 8:40 AM today … had a doctor’s appointment today. Well really I had a Dental Surgeon appointment today … it was a consult for to get 2 of my wisdom teeth removed. I forgot to take pictures before I left for my appointment so I just took them in the car while I was waiting for my food to be dropped at my car today … Olive Garden for dinner since I didn’t get out of my appointment until around 4:30 PM.

This is my go to look when I have a doctor’s appointment. Don’t mind the messy lipstick… it’s hard to keep your lips looking good under a mask … I opted for a matted lip color since that would be less messy than a creme lip would have.

Today I wore Gucci Bamboo perfume. Let’s dive into today’s Face of the Day…

oof … those roots are really coming in…. I think I will recolor my hair this weekend.

Base:

I primed my face using Too Faced HangoveRX ($34 at Ulta) and I primed my pore areas using Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Ulta). I then used Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44 at Sephora) in the shade 3. For foundation today I chose Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation ($44 at Sephora) in the shade 3 Neutral. I typically don’t contour when I’m just going to run errands like food shop or doctor’s appointments I just warm up the perimeters of my face and down my nose. I bronzed lightly using the Tarte Breezy Cream Bronzer ($29 at Sephora) in the shade Grace Bay. I highlighted the high points of my face using Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Beauty Light Wand ($38 at Sephora) in the shade Spotlight. I concealed my under eyes using NYX Born to Glow Radiant Concealer ($9 at Ulta) in the shade fair. I set my under eyes using Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder ($28 at Ulta and Sephora). I set my bronzer using Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer ($15.99 at Ulta) in the regular bronzer shade.  I set my highlight using Too Faced Born This Way Turn Up The Light Highlighting Palette ($42 at Ulta and Sephora) in the Light color way and using the shade Glow. I set the rest of the face using Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Loose Setting Powder ($33 at Ulta) in the shade Translucent.  For my setting powder I’ve chosen BH Studio Pro Matte Finish Pressed Powder (usually $9.50 but on sale for $4.75 on their website) in the shade 230.

Eyes:

I set my brows using Believe Beauty Eyebrow Styling Gel ($4 only at Dollar General stores) in clear and filled in my brows using Milani Stay Put Brow Color ($8.49 at Ulta) in the shade 05 Dark Brown. I carved out my brow line using BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte side and then primed the rest of my lids using the  P.Louise Base ($10 pound sterling/ $12.08 USD on their website… can also be found on the Morphie website for $15) in the shade Rumour 0.5. For today’s eye look I used the ELF The New Classics Palette ($14 on their site also sold at Target). I set my brow line using a combo of the shades Creme (vanilla – matte) and Blanc (white – shimmer). I started by using a combo of the shades Uptown (Taupe – matte) and Truffle (Soft Camel Brown – matte) from lash line to brow line. For the outer 1/3 of my mobile lid and the outer v of the crease I used a combo of the shades Darling (Mid-Toned orange based brown – matte) and Muse (dark chocolate brown – matte). For the remaining 2/3 of the mobile lid I used a combo of the shades Beloved (slight peachy – shimmer) and Glamour (Opal – shimmer). I then went into the shade Rose Gold (rose gold – metallic) and patted it over the middle 1/3 of the mobile lids. For the lower lash line I just created a light drop shadow using more of the shade Darling. I tight lined my upper and lower waterlines using BH Cosmetics Power Pencil ($8 at Ulta) in the shade Black. I coated my lashes in Milani Dangerous Lengths ($9.99 at Ulta) in the shade 112 Black. I then popped on a pair of Ardell Faux Mink Lash ($6.49 at Ulta) in the style #812 lashes. I highlighted the inner corners using the dazzle shade from the Too Faced Born This Way Turn Up The Light Highlighting Palette ($42 at Ulta and Sephora).

Cheeks and Lips:

For blush today I am wearing Tarte Sugar Rush Beach Cheeks Cream Blush ($15 at Ulta) in the shade Beaches and Cream (peachy pink). I set the cream blush using Tarte Amazonian 12-HR Blush ($29 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Natural Beauty (rosey red). I lined and filled in my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade Another Round (rosy nude) and then topped off my lips using ColourPop Lippie Stix ($7 on their website) in the shade Cami (cool-toned mauve – matte).

Final Thoughts:

Tomorrow I will be doing another rainbow inspired look. I want to keep practicing it until I get the look perfected …. I have several rainbow looks I want to try and achieve.

I also have purchased 5 new 18 shadow eye shadow palettes from the ELF website.

I purchased a few more things off the Makeup Revolution website as well.

I may also be purchasing some lashes from Boldface makeup soon too.

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

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

XOXO, Nita
