Beauty Buys for Week 2 of June 2022

Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I’m feeling worlds better than I have been and will be back to makeup looks as of Sunday the 5th!!!

I received 3 orders I purchased today so I figured I’d haul them for you….. so let’s see what I got…

*remember as always, all hyperlinks provided are simply for fast location of the products used and not affiliate links… I just did the research so you didn’t have to. All swatches and done on clean bear skin, in one pass and with no primer*

I purchased items from Charlotte Tilbury, Ulta, ColourPop , Morphe, Crown Noire, Blend Bunny Cosmetics, Glamlite and Amazon websites:

Up first the item I purchased from Amazon:

I Makeup Now Practice Face Board ($25.99) is a silicone 3d face blank that allows you to perfect your skills with brows and eye makeup. It’s  7.68 x 4.53 x 1.34 inches; 5.61 Ounces.

I purchased this so that I could practice makeup techniques on days where I’m not feeling well enough to sit and play with makeup myself. It’s a great way for me to be able to practice techniques that I’m not that good at and also allows me come up with ideas for a later date.

Up next… Crown Noire:

Crown Noire Full Cut Crease Stencils in the style WING IT ($13.99 for a pack of 14 pairs) is billed as a flawless cut crease in minutes without needing makeup remover giving you quick and perfect cut creases.

I don’t have a first impression because I’ve been using these for the better part of 2 years. I use these stencils when I want to do an intricate cut crease or want to do a more advanced color play look. They are made in Canada from what feels like medical tape. These stickers are easy to apply and just as easy to remove.

Up next… Charlotte Tilbury:

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer ($56 for 16 g / 0.56 oz of product) is billed as a soft sun-kissed complexion. It comes in 4 shades, I chose Medium 2 (the second shade).

First Impressions: This bronzer has the same lovely formula as the Airbrushed Pressed Powder. The shade I purchased is too light for me but it works to tone down my bronze when I go a bit overboard. I do like the formula so at some point I’m going to purchase a deeper shade.

Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Sun-Kissed Glow Bronzer ($56 for 21 g / 0.74 oz of product) is billed as a face and body cream bronzer with hyaluronic acid and sunshine provitamin D3 for a beautiful, healthy looking, beachy bronzed glow. It comes in 4 shades and I chose the shade 3 Tan.

First Impressions: This bronzer is super creamy and has the most beautiful undertones to it. It’s not too orange, in fact the undertone of this one is more red with a hint of grey. It sits lovely on the skin melting into almost undetectable coverage.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Beauty Light Wand ($40 for 0.40 fl oz / 12 ml of product) is billed as globally adored highlighter that plays with the light and adds a gorgeous glow to your complexion. It comes in 6 shades and I chose the shade Spotlight (rose gold).

I don’t have a first impression of this item, I’ve been using it for years. This is just a repurchase for me. It has to be my favorite cream highlighter ever.

Up next… Ulta:

Makeup Revolution IRL Filter Longwear Foundation ($13 for 0.7 fl oz / 23 ml of product) is billed as a filter in a bottle, and features a medium to full buildable foundation has a soft focus breathable matte formula with 16 hours of wear. It comes in 16 shades and I chose the shade F3 (fair with pink undertones).

First Impressions: This foundation is super pigmented and thick. I think a sponge would be the best way to go. I also chose a shade that was maybe a hint too pink undertone for my skin tone but I can make it work. This is more of a demi matte the a full on matte and does not set fully down nor oxidize.

ColourPop Jelly Much Shadow ($9 for 0.17 oz / 4.75 g of product) is billed as an innovative water-based formula that delivers high impact colour in a single swipe with a vibrant, metallic finish. This one is in the shade Mojave Moves (icy ivory with silver glitter).

I don’t have a first impression for this item: If you’ve been following my blog for any period of time then you know my love of the jelly much formula. It goes on creamy, doesn’t crease and delivers high shine coverage.

ColourPop Jelly Much Shadow ($9 for 0.17 oz / 4.75 g of product) is billed as an innovative water-based formula that delivers high impact colour in a single swipe with a vibrant, metallic finish. This one is in the shade Mystical (icy taupe with gold, pink & silver glitter).

I don’t have a first impression for this item: If you’ve been following my blog for any period of time then you know my love of the jelly much formula. It goes on creamy, doesn’t crease and delivers high shine coverage.

ColourPop Feelin’ Bubbly Pressed Powder Palette ($14 for 0.32 oz / 9 g of product… making it $1.56, 0.04 oz and 1 g of product per shade).

First Impression: This is a sweet little palette. Subtle neutrals have a soft spot in my heart. It has a complete color story… meaning I have a brow bone highlight, a few mid toned transition shades and a couple of shades deep enough to give definition without being overly deep.

First Impression: This palette is SO STUNNING! There isn’t a shade in the whole palette that I’m not in love with. This would be a great bridal color story or even a romantic date color story.

First Impressions: I am starting to love yellow as a shadow shade and this palette is like a sunflower in a palette. The mattes are a bit dusty but super pigmented. The metallics are a bit crumbly but melt into the skin well.

The shades from left to right are: Pollen 4 U (matte pale yellow), Honeycomb (metallic soft tangerine), To Bee (matte soft yellow), Buzzed (matte tangerine), Sweet Much (metallic yellow gold), Worker B (matte saddle brown), Oh Beehive (metallic copper), So Nectar (metallic warm orange with a gold duochrome shift) and Beezy (matte rich chocolate).

First Impressions: This is a pretty cool product. It’s totally a powder that melts into a creamy lipstick. This shade was creamy and lasted a fairly decent amount of time leaving behind a pretty little stain. It did take a bit of coconut oil to remove the stain but I didn’t mind at all.

Flower Beauty Powder Play Lip Color ($9.99 for 0.09 oz / 28 g of product) is billed as powder-to-cream technology that gives you a playful pop of soft focus color with a lightweight formula. It comes in 4 shades, this is the shade Tease (peachy coral).

First Impressions: This shade is so pretty but, unlike the first shade, it’s a bit chalky. It didn’t apply as well as the first shade and flaked a lot. I was able to fix it with a clear gloss.

Flower Beauty Spotlight Liquid Highlight ($12.99 for 0.47 fl oz / 14 ml of product) is billed as a fresh, healthy-looking glow. It comes in 3 shades, this is the shade Opal (white gold).

First Impression: When I purchased the shade Gleam I realized this highlighter is identical in mode of application as the Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand and wanted to see if I could find a dupe shade for it’s more expensive counterpart… and YUP I did… check out the picture below… can you choose which swatch is the $13 one and which is the $40 one? I’ll give you a few moments to try and figure it out…..

Charlotte is on the left and Flower is on the right… It has the same shine, the same dry down and the same tone… the Flower one is just a bit more pigmented… it’s a truly great options for my babes on a budget.

FIrst Impressions: FINALLY! A Laguna that I love. I have always had a love hate relationship with the Laguna Powder Bronzer… some days it looks good some days it doesn’t… it’s because of the shimmer in the bronzer. I love the cream bronzer that came out last year and I now love this one too. It’s just the right amount of orange undertone.

Morphe Luminous Complexion Primer ($16 for 1 fl oz/ 30 ml of product) is billed as a lightweight primer that is infused with nourishing ingredients, and creates a healthy-looking glow, and blurs imperfections.

First Impressions: I have been loving the 35 pan palettes from Morphe. I’m bummed that I’m so late to the game with this company.

Up last… Glamlite:

Glamlite x Mikayla Code Orange False Lashes ($12 per pair) is billed as a fluffy cat-eye lash creating a lifted and elongated look of the eyes. I purchased 4 pairs.

No first impressions needed. I wear these lashes constantly. They say you get 20 to 25 uses out of a pair but with proper care I’ve gotten 45 days out of a single pair.

Glamlite x Mikayla Brand New False Lashes ($12 per pair) is billed as a voluminous lash delivering a glamorous doll-eye look designed to open up the eyes. I purchased 1 pair to try out.

First Impressions: These lashes remind me of the ColourPop Bae lashes (but the big sister version). They are super cute and I can’t wait to try them out.

Glamlite Eye-cing Eyeshadow Base ($10 for 0.52 oz / 16 g of product) is billed as the world’s most effective eye primer, used to increase the color intensity of any eyeshadow instantly. Our innovative and revolutionary full coverage, crease proof and highly pigmented cream formula creates the perfect blank canvas for colorful looks. It comes in 7 shades and I chose the shade Classic Vanilla.

First Impressions: This primer went on opaque but as I tapped it out went sheerer than I’m used to for primers. It’s still nice and I’m keen to test it out, however it claims to be crease proof but it accentuates the texture of my arm… which means it will do the same for my lids.

This haul was a long one… thanks for sticking it through. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in great spirits and health.

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

❤XOXO, Nita.
