Copper Eyed Face of the Day

Published February 15, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I woke up with very little energy today so my makeup took me a long time to do. I had to keep taking breaks to rest. I also had to redo my makeup 3 times because I couldn’t get an eye look I liked. I tried to do a graphic eye look and that turned out really crappy, I tried to do a deep cut crease and that turned out crappy, and I tried to do a vampy smokey look and yup you guessed it, that turned out crappy. But, it’s OK…. It’s only makeup, and it can be removed and reapplied. So since my energy was really bad today I decided just to play it safe and do a basic coppery eye look. So let’s jump into the Face of the Day …..

20200215_163210

Base: I double primed today. First I primed the face using Makeup Forever Step 1 Smoothing Primer ($37 at Sephora) and then I primed using Wet n Wild Photo Focus Dewy Primer ($5.99 at Ulta). I color corrected using Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate ($12 at Target and on the Pixi website) in the shade Brightening Peach. My foundation today is the new Wet n Wild Photo Focus Dewy Foundation ($4.99 at Target) in the shade Soft Beige. I concealed my under eyes using Loreal Infallible Full Wear Concealer ($5.99 at Target) in the shade 360 Cashmere. I set my under eyes using ColourPop No Filter Setting Powder ($10 on their website) in the shade Translucent. I set the rest of my face using Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder ($39 at Ulta) in the shade Translucent. I warmed up the face using Benefit Hoola Bronzer ($30 at Ulta). I baked my jaw line, center of the forehead, and bridge of the nose using RCMA No Color Powder ($15 at Beautylish website). I then used the Too Faced Turn Up the Light Palette ($42 at Ulta) in the shade Soft Focus as a finishing powder.

Eyes: I primed the lids using NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer ($30 at Sephora) in the shade Medium 1 Custard and set that using more of the Laura Mercier powder. For today’s eye look I used the ColourPop Double Entendre Palette ($18 on their website). As my transition shade I used a combo of the colors Extra Curricular (a soft burnt orange matte) and Send Noodles (soft tan matte). For my crease shade I used the color Nip Slip (a warm saddle brown matte). I deepened up the outer v using a combo of the shades Hard (a deep terracotta matte) and Teddy Bear (a deep chocolate brown matte). I also brought this combo onto the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid. I used the shade Keep It PG (a champagne gold metallic) on the inner  2/3 of the mobile lid. I then used the shade Draft (a deep rose gold metallic) on the middle 1/3 of the mobile lid. I took more of the shade Hard and blended that in between the middle and outer 1/3 and then I went back into the shade Draft and blended that between the inner and middle 1/3 to help blend all the shades together. I created a drop shadow on the lower lash line using the shade Extra Curricular and then deepened the lash line using more of the shade Hard. I highlighted the inner corners using more of the shade Keep It PG and layered a bit of the Glow shade from the Too Faced Turn Up the Light palette ($42 at Ulta). I set my brows using ColourPop Brow Boss Gel ($7 on their website) in the shade Dark Brown and then filled in the brows using Loreal Brow Stylist Definer ($7.99 at Target) in the shade Dark Brunette. I carved out my brows using BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte side and set that using Wet n Wild Color Icon Single Shadow ($0.99 at Walgreens) in the shade Sugar. I lined my lower waterlines using Jordana 12-HR Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil ($5.29 on Amazon) in the shade 04 Continuous Almond (a pale nude). I created a wing using Benefit Roller Liner ($22 at Ulta) in the shade Brown and tight lined my upper waterlines using Ardency Inn Modster Smooth Ride Supercharged Eyeliner ($20 on their website) in the shade Coffee.I put on a pair of KoKo Queen B lashes ($7.99 on the Lady Moss website) and then used Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara ($23 at Ulta) in black on my upper and lower lashes.

Cheeks and Lips: For blush I used a blush my god daughter told me to try …. Burt’s Bees Blush ($9.49 at Target) in the shade 1205 Bare Peach. I highlighted the tops of the cheeks, bridge of my nose, center of my forehead, and Cupid’s Bow using Too Faced Turn Up the Light Palette ($42 at Ulta) in the shade Glow (a pale white gold). I lined my lips using Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat ($22 at Sephora) in the shade Pillow Talk (a nude pink) and filled in the lips using the corresponding Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick ($34 at Sephora) in the shade Pillow Talk.  Today I used NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray ($8.50 at Target) to set my makeup.

Final Thoughts:

Wet n Wild Photo Focus Dewy Foundation: A+                                                                         This foundation’s formula is so much better than the original. It left my face looking so fresh and glowy. It didn”t settle into fine lines and it didn’t get cakey or patchy. It held up pretty well today too. The shade I chose was a spot on match for me and it didn’t feel heavy or greasy either. It’s a pretty good drug store foundation. I will definitely use this bottle up. I may even repurchase it.

Loreal Infallible Full Wear Concealer: B-                                                                                     OK so I tested this concealer out again, this time in a better shade match for me. It’s just an OK concealer. It’s high medium coverage. It’s a thick consistency concealer that is a tiny bit hard to blend in, but I think that’s because I used too much. I will have to try it out again with less product to see if it’s better for blending in. I’m going to test it out again later next week, if I don’t like it then I plan on decluttering it out of my collection, no need to keep a concealer I don’t like around.

ColourPop No Filter Setting Powder: B-                                                                                         As a setting powder for under the eyes this is a hard pass for me. It was way too drying for under the eyes. It left my under eye looking heavy and cakey. I’ve tried it in the past as an all over setting powder and it’s just OK. Nothing really to write home about. I’ll end up using this powder up but I will not be repurchasing it.

Too Faced Turn Up the Light Palette: A-                                                                                        This palette is so good. I just, again, wish it didn’t have a glittery highlighter as the 3rd pan. The 1st pan highlighter is so pretty and so everyday wearable.

Ardency Inn Modster Smooth Ride Supercharged Eyeliner: A+                                            This eyeliner is crazy pigmented and easy to use. It’s smooth and doesn’t tug at the delicate skin of the eyes. It’s creamy and doesn’t skip on the waterlines. I also have it in Black and it is a very intense black.

Burt’s Bees Blush In The Shade Bare Peach: A+++!!!!                                                                     I am so glad my God daughter suggested I try this blush out. It is such a pretty everyday neutral peach shade!!! It blends out perfectly and isn’t patchy or cakey. It’s the perfect peach for every type of look you can think of.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick In The Shade Pillow Talk: A+++!!!!!                  I have a love affair with the shade Pillow Talk in the Lip Cheat. I had always wanted to try the lipstick shade too. So I purchased this shade today. It is the perfect nude pink for any look. It’s the your lips but better shade of pink. I loved it so much I jumped on line and ordered a back up.

Well that’s all for now dolls. Stay tuned for my next post which will be a haul post. I hope you have a great rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits. Remember, save a spoon for a bit on lipstick.

XOXO

Smokey Bronze Eye Face of the Day

Published February 14, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! Hope you are having a great day/night. I actually woke up early today!!! I feel pretty OK today. My body is stiff today but my pain level is around a 5. I received a bunch of new makeup in the mail today so I got to play with some new stuff. I was feeling like a smokey eye today, I’m all Valentine’s Day Look fatigued, so I decided to just go glam. Hope you enjoy it… and Hope that you are in good spirits….Let’s jump into the Face of the Day ….

20200214_125835

Base: I double primed my face today…. I used Dr Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner Primer ($45 at Ulta and Sephora) and then layered that with AOA Studio Wonder Skin Illuminating Primer ($1 on the Shop Miss A website). I color corrected using Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate ($12 on their website and at Target) in the shade Brightening Peach. For foundation today I am using a repurchase new foundation to me Too Faced Born This Way Undetectable Medium to Full Coverage Foundation ($39 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Warm Nude. I concealed my under eyes using a brand new product to me Too Faced Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer ($29 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Vanilla. I set my face using Pixi by Petra Colour Correcting Powder Foundation ($20 on their website and at Target) in the shade No.2 Nude. I warmed up the face using BH Cosmetics Brilliance Bronzer ($10 on their website and at Ulta) in the shade Bronze Babe. I set my under eyes and baked the jaw line, center of the forehead, and bridge of the nose using RCMA No Color Powder ($15 at the Beautylish website).

20200214_130006

Eyes: I primed the lids using NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer ($30 at Sephora) in the shade Medium 1 Custard and set that using Laura Merceir Loose Setting Powder ($39 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Translucent. For today’s bronzey smoke eye look I used the Private Society Cosmetics Girl Boss Palette ($35 on their website). For my transition shade I used the color CEO (an orange based tan matte). For my crease shade I mixed the shades Brunch (a mid-toned terra cotta matte) and Money Maker (a mid-toned muddy brown matte). On my mobile lid I used the shade Iconic (a muddy bronze metallic) on my inner 2/3. I deepened my outer v and the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid using the shade Friyay (a deep true brown matte) and then went in with the shade Instafamous (a copper metallic) on the middle 1/3 of the mobile lid to help blend out the edges of the inner and outer 1/3. On the lower lash line I created a drop shadow using first the shade CEO then the same combo of Money Maker and Brunch. I then deepened the lower lash line using more of Friyay and then buffed the whole lower lash line using more of the shade Brunch. I highlighted the inner corners first using Socialite (a pale champagne satin) and then I layered Dazzle (a pale champagne with silver glitter) from the Too Faced Turn Up The Light Complexion-Enhancing Highlighting Palette ($42 at Ulta and Sephora) in the Light color way. I lined my lower waterlines using ColourPop BFF Creme Gel Liner ($6 on their website) in the shade Get Paid (rose gold metallic). I tight lined the upper waterlines using NYX Slim Eye Pencil ($4.50 on their website and their store and at Ulta) in the shade Black. I set my brows using Pixi by Petra Brow Tamer ($10 at Target) in clear and then filled in my brows using ELF Ultra Precise Brow Pencil ($5 on their website) in the shade Deep Brown. I carved out my brows using BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the shimmer side and set that with the shade First Class (a true vanilla matte). I primed my lower lashes with Loreal Voluminous Primer ($6.79 at Target) and then put on a pair of lashes that I can’t find the name off anywhere. I then created a baby winged liner on the upper lash line and used Pixi by Petra Lash Booster Mascara ($15 on their website and at Target) in the shade Blackest Black on the lower lashes and to meld my upper lashes in with the falsies.

20200214_125925

Cheeks and Lips: For blush today I chose Private Society 8 Blush Palette ($42 on their website) in the color way Secret Admirer and using the shade Sweet Romance (a deep warm toned peach). I highlighted the tops of my cheeks, Cupid’s Bow, bridge of the nose, and center of the forehead using Benefit Powder Highlighter ($30 at Ulta) in the shade Cookie (a white gold pearl). I then used the Too Faced Turn Up The Light Complexion-Enhancing Highlighting Palette ($42 at Ulta and Sephora) in the Light color way using the Soft Focus powder as all over finishing powder. I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil (regularly $7 on sale for $4.90 on their website) in the shade 951 (a warm nude with a hint of burgundy) and filled in the lips using ColourPop Lippie Stix (regularly $7 on sale for $4.90 on their website) in the shade Daydream (a plummy brown matte).

Final Thoughts:

Too Faced Born This Way Undetectable Medium to Full Coverage Foundation: A+++!!!!      I had tried this foundation when it first came out and loved it. I used it up but never repurchased it. Whilst I was on the Ulta website purchasing other products I decided to repurchase it too. I am so glad I did. This foundation is BEAUTIFUL!!! I love how glowy it is and how perfect it looks on the face. I did forget that a little goes a long way and ended up using way too much today, but even so the finish didn’t look cakey at all. I am so in love with this foundation and am super excited to have it back in my collection.

Too Faced Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer: B-                                                                                This is a super thick concealer. It did great at highlighting the high points of my face but, because I hadn’t used this one before, I used too much for the under eye and it seemed to just sink deep into my fine lines. I chose to give this a letter grade of B- because it did crease and seemed to lift up off the under eye as I tried to blend it in. I don’t know, I think I just need more time to work with this one to see if I can get it to work better. Now, the reason for it seeping into my fine lines may be because I let it sit too long before blending it in, this may be the type of concealer that you have to work is small sections to get it to work out. So I will try it again tomorrow and see if I get a better outcome, if not then I will just use this one to highlight the high points of my face.

Too Faced Turn Up The Light Complexion-Enhancing Highlighting Palette: A-                        This is a trio complexion palette. It comes with a soft focus powder in the middle, a softer focus highlighter, and a chunky glittery highlighter. I think the soft focus finishing powder is beautiful and the softer focus highlighter is pretty, but that 3rd shade is just to inundated with glitter to work for highlighter. For this reason I chose to give this a A- grade. I would have much rather liked to have seen either a bronzer or a blush in this palette over that glittery hell Too Faced calls Dazzle. I can’t use this as a highlighter at all, but I can use it as an inner corner highlight for my eyes.

Benefit Powder Highlighter in the Shade Cookie: A+++!!!!                                                      OM GOSH!!! This highlighter is so stinking beautiful!!! It’s so reflective that it almost looks like wet skin! I wasn’t going to get it because I already have a Benefit highlighter, and well, I have a stock pile of highlighter… But I purchased it as a last minute impulse buy and am so glad I did. It is highly reflective without having any glitter what so ever. If your are light skinned to tan skin and are in the market for a knock your socks off product…. this highlighter is the one for you.

ColourPop Lippie Pencil in the Shade 951: A++                                                                                I purchased this lippie pencil as part of the Big Box of Lippie Pencils ($79 on sale for $68 on their website). This is such a pretty shade, and I normally don’t do deeper nude lip pencils. This one has a slight burgundy shift to it that would make it perfect for contouring the lips. It’s creamy and doesn’t feather into the fine lines of the lips.

ColourPop Lippie Stix in the Shade Daydream: A+++                                                                    Again, I purchased this lippie stix as part of the Big Box of Lippie Stix ($115 on sale for $99 on their website). I never use deep vampy nude shades ever, but it was in my box set and I thought I might as well try it out. I am so glad I did. This shade is beautiful!! It’s creamy and doesn’t transfer outside the lip line or get on the teeth. It’s a matte formula, but it’s a comfortable matte formula that doesn’t pill up on the inner rim of the lip. It’s long wearing and fades down nicely.

Well that’s all for now dolls. Stay tuned soon for a new makeup haul and review. I hope you have a great rest of your day/night and that you are having a low pain/high energy day/night. Until tomorrow, remember save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Valentine’s Day Cut Crease Face of the Day

Published February 12, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! How is you day/night going? Great I hope. I woke up seriously late today…. I just couldn’t get out of bed. I had a hard time sleeping last night so I knew today was going to be a challenge. I decided to go a bit more dramatic today for today’s Valentine’s Day inspired look and so I added lashes to really get the look to pop. The only product that I was testing for declutter was ELF Flawless Finish Foundation ($6 on their website) in the shade Sand. I decided to keep it. I really like the look I get with it, it’s a tiny bit too dark for me but I can make it work. Well, let’s get into the Face of the Day …..

20200212_153001

Base: I primed my face using Benefit The Porefessional Hydrate Primer ($32 at Ulta) and then I also primed using Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter ($45 at Sephora) in the shade Dew You. I color corrected using Tarte CC Undereye Corrector ($25 at Ulta) in the shade Light-Medium. For foundation I used ELF Flawless Finish Foundation ($6 on their website) in the shade Sand. I concealed my under eyes using Benefit Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer ($22 at Ulta) in the shade No. 5 I set the face using Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder ($39 at Sephora) in the shade Translucent. I warmed up the face using Rimmel London Natural Bronzer ($3.99 at Target) in the shade 022 Sun Bronze. I then set my under eyes and baked the jaw line, center of the forehead, and bridge of the nose using RCMA No Color Powder ($15 at the Beautylish website).

20200212_153027

Eyes: I primed thee lids using NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer ($30 at Sephora) in the shade Medium 1 Custard and then I set that with some more Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder. For today’s eye look I used the ColourPop All That 12 Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($18 on their website). For my transition color I used the shade Wink Wink (a dusty red matte). I then used the shade BB Girl (a true baby pink matte) as placement all over the mobile lid. For my crease and outer v I used the shade Silhouette (a muted burgundy matte). I applied this shade haphazardly and then went in and cut the crease using more NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer. On the inner 1/3 of the cut crease I used the shade Risque (an icy pink with silver reflect metallic). On the center 1/3 of the cut crease I used the shade Infatuation (a bright scarlet metallic). On the outer 1/3 of the cut crease I used more of the shade Silhouette and then went back and forth between all 3 shades to get a perfected blend. I created a drop shadow on the lower lash line using the shade Wink Wink and then deepened the lash line using more of Silhouette. On the inner corners I used Hikari Cream Pigment ($15 on their website) in the shade Fairytale (an icy white with silver reflect). I lined the lower waterlines using NYX Faux Whites Inner Eye Brightener ($8 at Ulta) in the shade Linen (a creamy nude). I set the brows using the soap brow technique and followed that up by using a bit of Pixi by Petra Brow Tamer ($10 at Target) in clear. I filled in my brows using ELF Ultra Precise Brow Pencil ($5 on their website) in the shade Depp Brown. I carved out the brow line using BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte side and set that using the shade Uncuffed (a pale baby pink matte). I then put on a pair of KoKo Lashes ($7.99 on Lady Moss’s website) in the style Queen B. I then tight lined the upper waterlines using BH Cosmetics Power Pencil ($8 on their website, on sale for $6 right now) in the shade Black and then I used Benefit Roller Lash Mascara ($25 at Ulta) in the shade Black on the lower lash lines and on the upper lash lines to blend them into the false lashes.

20200212_152832

Cheeks and Lips: For blush today I am using Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-HR Blush ($29 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Natural Beauty (a reddish pink matte). To highlight the tops of my cheeks, Cupid’s Bow, center of the forehead, and bridge of the nose using the shade Athens (a pale peachy champagne) from the BH Cosmetics Glowing in Greece 6 Color Blush & Highlighter Palette ($16 on their website and at Ulta). I lined and then filled in my lips using NYX Slim Lip Pencil ($4 at Ulta) in the shade Bloom (a deep and bright berry pink). I topped the middle of my lips off with NARS Lip Gloss ($24 at Sephora) in the shade Stripe Tease (a champagne nude).

Final Thoughts:                                                                                                                                      I have been loving playing with the All That eyeshadow palette!!! There is just so much that I can do with this palette. I have already reviewed this palette so I wont bore you any further, I’ll just say that if you are into playing with color and you want to try your hand at a super cute red look… this is the palette for you!!!

I haven’t worn false lashes in over a year and forgot just how pretty lashes look. Queen B is my all time favorite lashes on the planet. They where a little hard to get on today, mainly because I am out of practice, but they were the perfect lash for this deep cut crease look.

Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope you have a great rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits. I have purchased a bunch of makeup this week so stay tuned for some more hauls and reviews…. until than remember …. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Valentine’s Day Look #2 Face of the Day

Published February 11, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!! Hope you are having a great day/night and that you are in good spirits. Today I am in pain, what I always say is if I ever wake up with no pain I will think I’m dead …. having pain all the time is soul draining. Fibromyalgia can take a lot out of you… always being in pain, always having energy drains…. but I’ve decided that I am not going to let Fibromyalgia keep me at the sidelines forever…. So I showered and sat down to do my makeup …. I was excited to play with the new ColourPop All That Palette and really wanted to do another Valentine’s Day look. I also tested out 3 more products to see if I would be getting rid of them or keeping them…lose products are …. Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation in the shade 366 C Buff Bisque, Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Liner in the shade Rosary, and the NYX Born to Glow Highlighting Palette.  I will review not only the eye shadow palette, but also the 3 things on the chopping block in Final Thoughts.

Final Thoughts:

ColourPop All That 12 Pan Eyeshadow Palette:                                                                        This palette was so fun to play with today!!! I would grade this palette an A+++!!!! There was only a small amount of kick back with some of the darker shades in the pan and there was zero fallout on the face, except with the shade Infatuation which had a small amount of glitter fall out. The shades blended into the lids perfectly with out skipping or going patchy and each shade buffed into each other seamlessly without going muddy. The shade variation is perfectly done. There are 3 shades for transition, 3 shades for crease work, 2 shades for highlighting the brow bone, and 4 metallics that look beautiful on the lids. But that doesn’t mean you can’t use the shades in any order and on any part of the eye you want. This palette is just so pretty. I am very happy with the way the look turned out today and can’t wait to do a smokey red eye next. Definitely a great purchase!

Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation:                                                                                                I love the way this foundation sets down on the skin. It looks pretty. The only thing I don’t like is that it’s so matte. I barely reach for it because of how matte it is. I have decided to declutter this one from my collection, however I did just place an order on Amazon for the Dewy version of this foundation to test out.

Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Liner:                                                                                                        I have several of these lip liners. They are super pigmented, glide on smoothly with out pulling at the delicate lip line. They don’t feather into the fine lines around the lips either. I will not be purchasing any more from this brand until I see what the “rebranding” does… I do not support Kat Von D and even though she isn’t part of the company right now, doesn’t mean she wont be later down the line…. but I will use up the products I have, I don’t understand the whole throwing something away that I spent  my hard earned money on just because I don’t agree and refuse to support any further a brand. I will not be decluttering this liner.

NYX Born to Glow Highlighting Palette:                                                                                     This palette arrived with 1 shade broken. I have tried each of the remaining shades. The shades a pretty but there is glitter in this palette and the highlighters are so dusty and powdery that it just seems to sit on top of the cheeks even after using a setting spray.  I have decided to declutter this palette from my collection.

Well there you have it… I loved the All That palette and decluttered 2 of the 3 products on the chopping block today.

I hope you enjoy the look I came up with as much as I do… I truly love the way it came out. I also hope that the rest of your day/night goes wonderfully and that you are in a low pain level with a high energy level.

Remember, save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

From left to right the last 6 shades are… Uncensored: a bright rosey copper pressed glitter, Wink Wink: a dusty red matte, Silouette: a muted burgundy matte, Infatuation: a bright scarlet metallic, Please Me: deep merlot matte, and The Feels: a deep black with silver flecks sequin.

I’m excited to play with this palette!!! I’ll be doing a Valentine’s Day look tomorrow using this palette so stay tuned…. From the swatches on bare skin I can already tell that the shadows are buttery and will blend out beautifully, I can also tell that they will buff into each other without going muddy. There was little kick back in the pan and there was no skipping with the swatches

Well thank’s for stopping by and I hope you have a great rest of your day/night.

Remember save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Purple Smokey Eye Face of the Day

Published February 2, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey! Hope you are having a great day/night and that you are in good spirits, with as little pain as possible, and that you have plenty of spoons today. I’m having a pretty good day. My pain levels are somewhere in the middle range and I have a good deal of energy today. It’s cold here in Florida today and my body isn’t liking it, but it’s also not giving me too hard of a time. For today’s testing old makeup products I have chosen Tarte Poreless Mattifying Primer ($32 at Ulta), Too Faced Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer ($28 at Ulta and Sephora), and Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation (Discontinued). I have also tested out the 2 newest ColourPop palettes that I hauled…. It’s My Pleasure ($12 on their website) and Lilac You A Lot ($12 on their website). As a side note…. for my brows I tried a newer to me technique. I tried the soap brow method and I have to say I really liked the way my brows came together today. Anyway, I’ll review all 5 products in Final Thoughts but for now let’s jump into the Face of the Day …..

20200202_150740

Base: I primed my face using Tarte Poreless Mattifying Primer (). I color corrected using Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate ($12 at Target) in the shade Brightening Peach. For foundation I am wearing Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation (Discontinued) in the shade Light Medium. I concealed my under eyes using Too Faced Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer ($28 at Ulta, Sephora, and on their website) in the shade Light Medium. I set my face using Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder ($39 at Ulta or Sephora) in the shade Translucent and then warmed up my face using NYX Matte Bronzer ($10at Ulta) in the shade Deep Tan. I set my under eyes and baked my jaw line, center of forehead, and bridge of the nose using RCMA No Color Powder ($15 on the Beautylish website).

20200202_150647

Eyes: I primed my lids using Tarte Shape Tape ($27 at Ulta) in the color Light-Medium Honey and set it using more of the Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder. I first went in with the It’s My Pleasure Palette ($12 on the ColourPop website) and used the shade Kittenfishes (a cool lavender matte) as my 1st transition shade. I then popped over to the Lilac You A Lot Palette ($12 on the ColourPop website) and used the shade Imagine That (a pastel lavender matte) as my 2nd transition shade. For my crease I used the shade Iffy (a cool toned true purple matte) from the same palette. On my mobile lid I used the shade Wake Me (an orchard with a pink flip metallic) on the inner 1/3 and then switched back to the It’s My Pleasure Palette to use Chick Lit (a deep amethyst metallic) on the outer 1/3. I then went back to the Lilac You A Lot palette and used the shade Fluff (an icy violet with gold and silver reflect metallic) on the middle 1/3 to blend the inner and outer shades together. I then used a combo of the shade Filtered (a reddish plum matte) from this palette and Sleeper (a deep eggplant matte) from the other palette to deepen the crease a bit and on the outer v. On my lower lash line I first used the more of the shade Kittenfish and then the shade Iffy and then I deepened the lash line using more of Sleeper to create a smokey drop shadow. On the inner corners I used the shade Trainwreck (a soft lavender with a pink flip metallic) from the Lilac You A Lot palette to highlight them. I used the Soap Brow technique to set my brows using Neutrogena Original Fragrance-Free Gentle Facial Cleaning Bar ($1.97 at Walmart). I then filled in my brows using Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil ($24 at Ulta) in the shade 4.5 and then carved out my brow line using BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter Pencil ($5 on their website) on the matte side and set that with the shade Lucid (a pinkish nude matte) from the Kat Von D Shade and Light Contour Palette ($48 at Sephora). I lined my waterlines with the Revolution Pro Supreme Pigment Gel Eyeliner ($5 on their website) in the shade Nude. I primed my lashes with Loreal Voluminous Primer ($6.79 at Target) and then used Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara ($6.79 at Target).

Cheeks and Lips: For blush today I am using Loreal True Match Super Blendable Blush ($7.99 at Target and $11.99 at Ulta) in the shade W 3-4 Barely Blushing (a tanish peach satin). I highlighted the tops of my cheeks, bridge of the nose, Cupid’s Bow, and center of my forehead using BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ($22 at Sephora) in the shade Champagne Pop. I then used MAC Mineralize Skin Finish ($36 at Ulta and MAC) in the shade Medium Golden as a finishing powder to blend out all the edges of the blush, bronzer, and bake. I lined my lips with NYX Suede Matte Lip Liner ($4 at Ulta) in the shade Stockholm (a very pale peachy nude) and filled in the lips using Loreal Matte Lip Stain ($11.99 at Ulta) in the shade 418 Empower (a pale yellow toned peachy nude) and then I topped the lips off with NARS Lip Gloss ($24 at Sephora and on their website) in the shade Chihuahua (a light berry pinkish coral).

Final Thoughts:                                                                                                                                   So the soap brow technique was so easy to do. My brows felt a little bit sticky but soon dried down and held my brows in place but they came out fluffier than when I use brow gel ….. I am thinking I may do this technique a lot more seeing as though I have very sparse brows.

The It’s My Pleasure and Lilac You A Lot palettes were so easy to work with. There was no patchiness or skipping, barely any kickback in the pans, and very little fallout on the face. Every shade I used was rich in pigment that did not muddy when buffed into each other. These palettes offer enough shade variation that you can get several distinctly different looks with each. I’m going to have so much fun with these 2 palettes this Spring, even though I don’t have separate colors that I use for the different seasons, I just use what I feel like using, when I feel like using it.

The Tarte Poreless Mattifying Primer ….. ugh the scent!!! I just can not get passed the scent of this thing. It’s the reason i almost never reach for it. I like that it really blurs the pores and smooths out the texture on my face…. but that scent is just so gross. I don’t even know how to explain how this stuff smells, it’s some where between burnt plastic and play-dough. I’m finding it hard pressed to keep using this product. It’s almost completely full and I just can’t bring myself to keep using it because of the scent. I know it’s almost $40 that I’ll be wasting but I am decluttering this one from my collection.

Too Faced Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer….. I freaking love this concealer so much. It’s a light weight consistency that builds up beautifully. I have the shade Light-Medium and it’s my perfect skin match…. I want to use this one up so I can repurchase it in the shade Light-Nude so that I can bring some light to the under eye area. I am most definitely keeping this concealer in my collection.

Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation….                                                                                           I’d give this foundation a solid B-. It just doesn’t wow me anymore. It’s a very light weight serum foundation that leaves the face feeling a bit greasy. This foundation was discontinued and so even if it wowed my I wouldn’t be able to get my hands on it anyway. It looks pretty and is a light coverage foundation great for the Spring, but I just don’t like it enough to keep it in my collection. I have decluttered it.

Well that’s all dolls. Stay tuned tomorrow when I try out another 4 items from my older makeup stash to see if I liked it or if I will declutter it. I hope you have a great rest of your day/night and remember …. save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO

 

 

 

Mini ColourPop Haul and Swatches

Published February 1, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

20200201_171428

Hey doll hey!!!! I’m back with another mini makeup haul and live swatch. I’ve been waiting to do another purple eye look and couldn’t make up my mind on which of these 2 palettes I wanted to purchase so I bit the bullet and purchased both. I purchased both on the ColourPop website and each palette was $12. So let me introduce you to these pretty little babies…..

The It’s My Pleasure Palette retails for $12 and you get .36 total ounces of product. There are 3 matte shadows, 1 sequin shadow, and 5 metallic shadows. When I swatched this palette I was super impressed at just how pigmented and non patchy these shadows are. It’s hard to create a truly smooth purple shadow without having some skipping. At first glace I don’t think I’m going to have a problem with skipping or muddiness. Let’s take a closer look at the shades ….

The colors from left to right are as follows :  Kittenfish: a cool lavender matte, Do or Dough: a bright lavender with a blue flip metallic, Pretty Cruel: berry mauve with gold flecks sequin, Bare Minimum: berry violet matte, Earthshine: pinky lavender with a blue flip metallic, Chick Lit: deep amethyst metallic, Mr. Sandman: icy rose with a silver reflect metallic, Fan Fiction: dusty pink matte, Sleeper: a deep eggplant matte.

The Lilac You A Lot Palette retails for $12 and you get .36 total ounces of product. There are 4 matte shadows, 1 satin shadow, and 4 metallic shadows. This palette feels a bit drier than the It’s My Pleasure Palette, but not by much… it’s just a bit more powdery. However, it is every bit as pigmented and as easy to blend in. Again I don’t think I will have any problems with skipping or muddiness with this palette either. So let me introduce you to the colors ….
