Soft Spring Inspired Face of the Day

Published March 6, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I slept into… didn’t get up until around 9:30 am and didn’t get started with my day till around 10:45 am…. I woke up incredibly stiff and had to wait for my Rheumatoid Arthritis to cooperate with me. I woke up to such pretty weather here in Florida so I got inspired to do a soft Spring inspired makeup look…. So let’s jump into it shall we?

94596db9-f45a-471f-af2d-31255f399bcb

My scent for the day is Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris Eau De Perfum. I purchased this one at Sephora for $94. The notes of this perfume are: Strawberry, Raspberry, Bergamot, Calone, Pear, Orange Flower, Jasmin Sambac, White Peony, Datura, Patchouli, White Musk, Ambrox, Cedar wood,  and Crystal Moss. This is a totally  sophisticated scent that lingers on the skin all day. This is my favorite Spring time scent and I have repurchased it 2 times. 

20200306_151828

Base: I primed my face using NYX Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer ($11.20 at Ulta) and color corrected the inner and outer part of my under eyes using Believe Beauty Brighten Up Color Correcting Concealer ($4 at Dollar General) in the shade Light/Medium. For foundation today I am wearing a combo of 2 dropper fulls of L’Oreal True Match Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops ($14.99 at Ulta) in the shade 507 Day Break and a squeeze of AOA Studio Perfect BB Cream ($1 on the Shop Miss A website) in the shade Medium….. upon application this looked extremely disco ball like …. 1 dropper of the glow drops would have been more than enough. I concealed my under eyes using Wet n Wild Photofocus Concealer ($4.49 at Ulta) in the shade 835 Fair Neutral. Because my face was so glittery I didn’t want to add more glow to the skin so I instead of using my new obsession (Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Setting Powder) I used Catrice Cosmetics Primer and Fine Mattifying Waterproof Powder ($7.49 at Ulta) in the shade Translucent to set my full face and this is the powder I will be using for touch ups throughout the day. I noticed that my face still looked incredibly glittery so I also decided to powder my face with my Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder ($39 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Translucent…. this seemed to help just a tad to tone down those glow drops ….. well, you live and you learn right? I warmed up my face using Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer ($15.99 at Ulta) in the shade bronzer.

20200306_151647

Eyes: I primed my eyes using NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer ($30 at Sephora) in the shade Medium 1 Custard and set that using more of the Catrice Cosmetics Primer and Fine Mattifying Waterproof Powder. To create today’s eye look I used the Coastal Scents Revealed Rouge Palette ($20 on the Coastal Scents website). For my transition shade I used the color I’m Peachy (a warm light-rose matte). For my crease and outer 1/3 of the mobile lid shade I used a combo of the colors Perfection (a dusty peachy mauve matte) and  Crave (deep red matte). On the inner 2/3 of the mobile lid I used the shade Fairy Dusk (a rose gold metallic) followed by the shade Rock It (a reddish brown metallic) on the middle 1/3 to blend the lid shades together. I deepened just the very outer part of the outer v using more of the shade Crave (deep red matte). For my lower lash line I just buffed whatever was left on the brush that I used in my crease. To highlight my inner corners I used a combo of the shade Shiny (an icy vanilla metallic) and the highlighter I used on my face today Essence Pure Nude Highlighter ($4.99 at Ulta) in the shade 10 Be My Light (a light peachy champagne). I set my brows using Believe Beauty Eyebrow Styling Gel ($4 at Dollar General) in clear and I filled in the brows using the brow pencil from the Profusion Good Brow Day 2pc Kit ($8 on their website) in the color dark brown. I carved out my brow line using the BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte side and set the brow line using the shade Peach Party (a peachy cream vanilla matte). I lined my lower waterlines using ColourPop BFF Creme Gel Liner ($6 on their website) in the shade Get Paid (a rose gold metallic). I popped on a pair of the Profusion Cosmetics Iconic 3D Faux Mink Lashes ($7 for a 6 pack on their website) in the style Big Tease and coated both my upper and lower lashes with Profusion Lash Out Loud Mascara ($4 on their website) in black.

20200306_151852

Cheeks and Lips: My blush today is Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-HR Blush ($29 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Seduce (rosy nude). I highlighted just a tiny bit on my chin and then my Cupid’s bow, bridge of the nose, and the high point of my brows using Essence Pure Nude Highlighter () in the shade 10 Be My Light (a light peachy champagne). I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade Heart On (bright cool-toned magenta matte) and then filled in my lips using the ColourPop Lippie Stix ($7 on their website) in the same shade Heart On (bright cool-toned magenta matte).

20200306_151911

Final Thoughts: I had the worlds most difficult time with my makeup today. First I used too much of the glow drops in my bb cream, the glitter you see on my neck in the picture above is how my full faced looked before I double powdered today, and then I couldn’t get my left falsie to stay down on the inner corner and then I pocked myself in the eye with the mascara wand which cause me to get mascara all over the lower waterline. I know…. first world problems right? I really do love this eye look today though…. I don’t reach for this palette often but I have loved every single look I can turn out with it. My eyebrows even cooperated today …. this brow pencil is starting to grow on me. I’m still not sure how I feel about this concealer…. it just seems drying and chalky and just doesn’t wow me, it doesn’t even intrigue me, and it seems to create texture that just isn’t there…. I put a bit of this on the center of my forehead, between my brows to brighten it up and it just seemed to bunch up in that area and I really don’t have any texture to where this should be happening….. I’m going to try using it a few more times this month and if I just don’t like it then I will remove it from my collection. This bb cream continues to impress me every time I reach for it…. It gives a fresh faced natural look to the skin and it lasts all day. All in all I had a pretty good time with my makeup …. with a very few caveats… and I think I might try this palette and this foundation combo again tomorrow (except with just 1 drop of glow drops).

Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope you have a great rest of your day/night and that you are found in good spirits with low pain levels and high energy levels. Remember, Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Face of the Day Featuring Makeup From Yesterday’s Beauty Haul

Published March 4, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I slept in today. I was up pretty late last night working on my Beauty Haul post and didn’t get to bed until around            2:45 am. I really loved the way my makeup came out today!! Also I received the 2 items that I was waiting on from my Beauty Haul post so I will do a quick haul post showing you what I received. Well…. let’s jump into this Face of the Day, and as always I will review the new products used in Final Thoughts …. *Side Note* I have decided to include my perfume of the day in my Face of the Day posts, also please ignore the very visible eye lash glue on my right eye lashes …..

99531_img-1340-marc_jacobs-daisy_twinkle_720

This was a 2018 Limited Edition Release by Marc Jacobs. I purchased mine off Amazon for $55, currently on the Amazon website for $53…. It has notes of has a blend of red berries, violet leaf, violet, white flowers, and white woods. I use this one sparingly. I never want to run out. Out of all the perfumes from the Daisy line …. this by far is my favorite one. The scent lingers for hours and is such a soft feminine scent that has a perfect balance of sweet and demure. 

20200304_151204

Base: I primed my face using the NYX Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer ($11.20 at Ulta). I color corrected just the very inner and outer corners of my under eyes using Believe Beauty Brighten Up Color Correcting Concealer ($4 at Dollar General) in the shade Light/Medium. For foundation today I have a combo of 2 dropper fulls of  Loreal True Match Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops ($14.99 at Ulta) in the shade 507 Day Break and 2 squeezes of Loreal 24-HR Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation ($12.99 at Ulta) in the shade 202 Creamy Natural (I only needed to use 1 layer so I put out way too much product on my face palette, so 1 of each would have been more than enough). I lightly concealed my under eyes using Loreal Infallible Pro-Glow Concealer ($9.99 at Ulta) in the shade 01 Classic Ivory (the coverage was a bit low so I added just a tiny bit more on the inner corners where I have deep circling since I didn’t go to sleep till late yesterday). I set my full face using Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Setting Powder ($33 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Translucent. I warmed up my face using Benefit Hoola Bronzer ($30 at Ulta). My skin looked so beautiful with all these glowy items on that I opted not to bake the high points of my face.

20200304_151305

Eyes: I primed my lids using NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer ($30 at Sephora) in the shade Medium 1 Custard and set them using RCMA No Color Powder ($15 on the Beautylish website). For today’s eye look I used the Profusion Cosmetics Eye & Cheek Artistry Palette ($10 On their website). For my transition shade I went in using the color Honest (a dusty peach matte). As my crease shade I used the color Cookie (a terracotta brown matte). On the first 2/3 of my mobile lid I used the color Mic Drop (a bronze metallic). I then deepened the outer v and outer 1/3 of my mobile lid using the shade Come Back (a deep camel brown matte) and then went back in with more of the shade Cookie over the middle of the outer 1/3 and inner 2/3 of the mobile lid to blend the harsh line away. On my lower lash line I dusted lightly more of the shade Cookie and buffed the edges using more of Honest. I used the highlighter shade called Heartfelt (a champagne highlight) from the same palette to highlight my inner corners of my eyes. I lined my lower waterlines using ColourPop BFF Creme Gel Liner ($6 on their website) in the shade Get Paid (a rose gold metallic). I set my brows using the Tinted Brow Gel from the Profusion Cosmetics Good Brow Day 2pc Kit ($8 on their website) to set my eye brows and then I filled in my brows with the matching Ultra Fine Brow Pencil all in the color Dark Brown. I carved out my brow line using the BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the made side and set the brow line using the shade Whipped (a bright cream matte). I popped on a pair of the Profusion Cosmetics Iconic 3D Faux Mink Lashes ($7 on their website) in the style Big Tease and coated my upper and lower lashes using Profusion Cosmetics Lash Out Loud Mascara ($4 on their website) in black.

20200304_151228

Cheeks and Lips: For blush and highlighter I used the Profusion Cosmetics Eye & Cheek Artistry Palette ($10 On their website). For the blush I combined the shades Lush (muted peach… in the pan it looks like a satin, on the skin it’s actually a matte) and Breath Taking  (a mid-toned coral again in the pan this one looks like a satin but on the skin it’s a matte). I used the shade Heartfelt (a champagne highlight) to highlight the tops of my cheeks, center of my chin, bridge of my nose, Cupid’s bow, and above my brows. I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6) in the shade BFF 3 (deep brown nude) and filled in my lips using MAC Matte Lipstick ($19 at Ulta and MAC) in the shade Velvet Teddy (deep toned beige).

20200304_151146

Final Thoughts:

Loreal True Match Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops: A+++!!!!                                  These glow drops are amazing!! They do not change the consistency of the foundation and they do not change the tone of the foundation either. Combined with the Loreal 24-HR Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation this is a deadly beautiful combination. There is no scent to these drops and they are not sticky or greasy. I will go out on a limb and say these drops are my favorite glow drop formula ever. I will most definitely be repurchasing them.

Loreal 24-HR Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation: A+++!!!!                                                           The shade I chose is 202 Creamy Natural and this is a spot on match for my skin tone. This foundation is so stinking beautiful! Truly it is. It’s also full coverage. I thought I would need 2 squeezes of the tube but I didn’t, 1 would have been more than enough for my neck and face. This foundation looks amazing. My skin was glowy and looked very healthy. I am so in love with this foundation that I ordered a backup today.

Loreal Infallible Pro-Glow Concealer: A+                                                                                   This is a pretty concealer. I’m glad I got the chance to try it. I would grade this one higher save for the fact that it’s not that high of coverage. It’s light weight and a bout low medium coverage.  Don’t get me wrong… just because I didn’t grade it higher doesn’t mean that I don’t really like it. I definitely will be using this a ton more, and I may even repurchase it when I run out.

Profusion Cosmetics Eye & Cheek Artistry Palette: A+++!!!                                                      This is a great face and eye palette. The shadows all went on super pigmented and blended out welll and did not muddy when buffed into other colors. There was very little bit of kick back in the pans for the eye shadows and there was zero fallout on the face. The blushes, however, are not the same. There was heaps of kick back in the pans, so much so that I had to wipe down my vanity after I was done my makeup, but the color payoff is amazing. Theses blushes are not chalky or patchy and the buffed into the cheeks wonderfully. The highlighters are  good …. not the best I’ve tried…  but good enough that I would use them again. This is a great palette to travel with and to have in my collection… and the price point is a great value. I liked this palette so much that I think I may pickup their Siennas Palette also.

Profusion Cosmetics Good Brow Day 2pc Kit: B-                                                                       Out of all the Profusion products I purchased, this was the least impressive to me. In part this is because the brow gel didn’t wow me. It doesn’t hold the brow hairs in place that well and it’s so gloppy that it gets all over the skin around the brows, it’s also deeper in color than the pencil which means I would have to do my brows first and then set them…. I prefer to set my brows first and then fill them in. Now, the pencil is hard pressed…. meaning that it takes more presser to get the pencil to coat the brows. It didn’t skip but I did feel as though it did pull at the brow hairs a bit. I liked the way my brows looked with this product, but it was hard to get a crisp outline and it does fad around the 3 hour mark around the outside of the brows. It’s still a good brow kit for the price point it just didn’t wow me. I’ll continue to use the pencil but i will not use the gel again and I do not see myself repurchasing this product.

Profusion Cosmetics Iconic 3D Faux Mink Lashes: A+++!!!!                                                      Out of all the Profusion products I purchased this is the stand out winner for me. These lashes do not need to be trimmed down or worked over to get them to shape around the eye shape. The bands look as though they would be stiff and heavy but they’re not. They are very flexible and I can barely tell that I’m wearing them. There’s no pinching at the ends and they flair out so beautifully. I already placed an order for more pairs of the Big Tease style and also ordered one box of the Oh Darling style. I can already tell I will be repurchasing these lashes again and again.

Profusion Cosmetics Lash Out Loud Mascara: A+++                                                                        I can’t believe this mascara is only $4. It’s a great quality mascara. The wand shape is like the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara wand except a bit longer. My lashes don’t feel crunchy or clumpy and the length I got on my lower lash line was amazing. I can see myself repurchasing this mascara again.

 

Well that’s it dolls… Hope you have a great rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits. Stay tuned for my mini beauty haul. As always remember… save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO

Beauty Haul for Week 1 of March 2020

Published March 4, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag
20200303_213659

Just received my beauty purchases from last week today

Hey doll hey!!! Hope you’re having a great day/night. I’m coming to you with a new makeup haul…. so let’s jump in and see what i purchased…. *Side Note* All swatches are done on bare skin with no primer and with only 1 pass of my finger. I will leave the links to as many products as I can that I have purchased just in case you’re interested in purchasing any of the items for yourself…. Please note, I purchased all products myself and none of these links are affiliate links.

Let’s start this off with a few beauty room necessities ….

20200303_132756

These are the hand towels I use at my makeup vanity in the morning to wipe my brushes on and to dab extra makeup off onto. I also use these to wipe away any makeup residue on my vanity. I fold them into 1/4 and use 1 side a day for 4 days and then pop them into the wash. I get them from Amazon for $22 for a 12 pack and find that I only need to purchase them 1 to 2 times a year.

20200303_200548

I purchased these laundry bags (a 2 pack of 3) from Amazon for $8 to use with reusable bamboo facial rounds that I purchased… I will be getting them in the mail tomorrow and wanted to wash them before using them and so I needed a laundry bag…. the facial rounds come with 1 but all the reviews I read said that the bag was too small to wash more than 2 so I thought I’d try a bigger bag …. look out for my review of both this bag and the facial rounds later this week.

20200303_200537

I needed more acrylic storage for my pressed powders, blushes, and highlighters that did not fit in the storage towers that I already had, so I purchased another one. I now own 4 and I love them so much…. I have 1 for my bronzers, 1 for my blushes and my highlighter, 1 for my pressed powders and 1 that has the spill of bronzers, blush, pressed powders, highlighters. These can be used standing up like you see in this picture or laying down in a drawer…. they fit perfectly in the drawers of the Alex 9 drawer unites you can purchase at Ikea and are each compartment is tall enough that you can typically store 2 pieces in each one.  Each unit is 8 1/2 inches wide by 2 and 1/2 inches deep and 9.8 inches tall and each compartment is 3 wide long by 1.75 inches tall. The company that makes these little gems is call By Alagory and Amazon sells them for $22.

20200303_200449

I needed a new acrylic covered makeup brush holder but the ones that I have are no longer being sold so I had to go with a different design. The company that makes this style is called Newslly and Amazon sells it for $39.

The two pictures on the left are my original acrylic makeup brush holders. I’ve had them for 2 years and really need to by some acrylic cleanser to get them as clear as the new on the right. The top picture of the left side holds all my foundation brushes, medium sized powder brushes, and big fluffy powder brushes. The one on the bottom of the left side hold all my eye brushes and brushes I call utility brushes (stuff like nose contour, gel liner, concealer, and fan brushes just to name a few). In the new brush unit I store my contour and bronzer brushes, blush brushes, duo fiber and highlighter brushes.

And on to the makeup purchases….

Physicians Formula Spotlight Illuminating Primer: I purchased mine off Amazon for $11.99 for 1 fluid ounce. This primer is billed as an AGE-DEFYING PRIMER: Infused with 5 Filtering Luminescent Pearls to blur imperfections & deliver a spotlight glow, this age-defying primer blurs, corrects & protects, making your complexion radiant. This is such a pretty face primer! I have been enjoying it the past 2 days. In the pictures bellow the one on the left is without flash and the one on the right is with flash.

Catrice Cosmetics Light Correcting Serum Primer: I purchased this off the Ulta website for $10.99 for .494 fluid ounces. This is billed as having a candlelight-inspired golden shimmer that can be added  to your foundation for a subtle illuminating effect, or apply alone for a highlighting glow and can also be added to your body lotion for an all-over glow. This is a repurchase for me. I’m almost out of the one I purchased when I did my full face Catrice look and review and I just love this product so darn much! It makes every foundation look so dewy and so pretty. I have even worn it alone when I’m not wearing makeup. In the pictures bellow on the left is without flash on the right is with flash.

20200303_220607

I purchased all 3 of these on the Ulta website.

Loreal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation: I purchased this foundation at Ulta for $12.99 for 1 fluid ounce in the shade 202 Creamy Natural. It comes in 12 shade with 4 shades for deeper skin tones and is billed as a pro foundation with an all day glow with up to 24 hours of wear. I’ve never tried this one before so I will use it in my Face of the Day post for tomorrow. The pictures bellow are left is no flash and right is with flash.

Loreal Infallible Pro-Glow Concealer: I purchased this at Ulta for $9.99 for .21 fluid ounces of product in the shade 01 Classic Ivory. It comes in 8 shades with 2 for deeper skin tones. I think I have used this before but I can’t remember what I thought about it… I will use it in tomorrow’s post as well

20200303_220920

this is the concealer with flash … I forgot to take a picture of it without flash.

Loreal True Match Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops: I purchased this at Ulta for $14.99 for .25 fluid ounces in the shade 507 Day Break. There are 2 shades, this one and a more bronzed color. Just from the swatch I can tell that a very little bit goes a long way and that this is super pigmented. There is no glitter in this liquid highlighter. Photos bellow are left no flash right with flash.

20200303_221144

Loreal Brow Stylist Definer: I purchased this at Ulta for $8.99 for .003 ounces of product. It comes in 7 shades.  I just ran out of the one I had so this is a replacement. This is a phenomenal brow pencil!

20200303_221224

Ardell Latex Free, Vegan Duo Brush-On Adhesive With Vitamins: I purchased this at Ulta for $4.54 on sale (it’s $6.49 regular priced) for .18 fluid ounces. This is the only lash glue I have ever used and this one is a back up because I’m down to 1 back up and 1 that is almost done.

The next products I purchased of the Profusion Cosmetics  website. The first 4 pictures are all part of the 19pc Makeup Brush Bundle I purchased this for $69.99 on sale (it’s normally $92). I did not take pictures of 5 of the brushes because they are duplicates of the brushes I posted in yesterday’s 2 months of makeup brushes review .

20200303_13025720200303_13032020200303_130340

20200303_130528

The last 2 brushes in this picture came as part of a set in the WAY TO GLOW ILLUMINATING KIT the first one is the precision highlight brush and the second one is the tapered highlight brush…. these 2 brushes are way too small for me to use as a highlighter brush so i have reassigned them as eye crease brushes.

Profusion Iconic 3D Faux Mink Lashes : in the style Big Tease $7.00 for 5 pairs. They look super cute… I will try them out for tomorrow’s Face of the Day post.

20200303_221509

Profusion Way To Glow Illuminating Kit  $15 for 1 fluid ounce of Liquid Illuminator, 3 loose pigment highlighters in the shade Rose Gold, Icy White, and  Champagne, 1 tapered highlight brush, and 1 precision highlight brush.

20200303_221526

The Liquid Illuminator is very thick and a bit fiddly until it’s completely blended in and is billed as being able to blended into your foundation for all over luminosity or used as a base for the highlight powders.

The right picture is without flash and the right one is with flash.

The loose highlighting pigments… rose gold, icy white, and champagne. The left picture is no flash and right picture is with flash.

Profusion Lash Out Loud Mascara : $4 and is billed as being equipped with buildable fibers you can actually see, take your lash game to the next level with this clump-free formula that instantly lifts, volumizes and lengthens your lashes.

20200303_221310

Profusion Good Brow Day 2pc Kit : $8. Comes in 4 shades, I purchased it in the shade Dark Brown.  

Profusion Eye and Cheeks Artistry Palette : $10 and comes with 12 eyeshadow shades, 4 blush shades, 2 highlight shades, and 1 pro series brush. The brush that comes with this palette is really good quality … as good of a quality as the rest of their brush line is, that’s super impressive because normally the brushes that come in palettes are crapy. Let’s take a closer look at the palette…..

Left is with no flash, right is with flash. From left to right the shades are: Lush (muted peach satin blush), Breath Taking (a mid-toned coral satin blush) Diamonds (a gold toned champagne highlighter), Great (a berry satin blush), Bashful (a blue-toned pink satin blush) and Heartfelt (a champagne highlight).

 

Left is with no flash, right is with flash. From left to right the shades are: Whipped (a bright cream matte), Love (a mustard tan matte), Antique (a gold metallic), Honest (a dusty peach matte) Mic Drop (a bronze metallic), Cookie (a terracotta brown matte).

Left is with no flash, right is with flash. From left to right the shades are: Chatty (champagne metallic), Embrace (a grey-toned tan matte), Terrific (a taupe metallic), Bestie (a grey-toned mid brown matte),Comeback (a deep camel brown matte), and Tease (a very deep grey toned brown matte).

The blushes in this palette felt a bit chalky but swatched creamy. The matte eye shadows seam hard pressed but swatch amazingly smooth. The metallics are creamy and very pigmented.

Well that’s all for now dolls. Thanks for spending time with me. Stay tuned tomorrow when I try on as many of these new products as possible. Remember, save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO
