Brown Sugar Glam Face of the Day

Published April 3, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I’m doing pretty good today. My pain level is around a 6 (this is my baseline pain level… meaning that this is my typical pain level… I very seldom have a pain level lower than 5 or 6) and I have a moderate amount of energy today!! I woke up wanting to use my ColourPop Brown Sugar Palette (discontinued … was a limited edition palette). Today I am wearing YLS Mon Paris perfume today. Well … let’s jump into this Face of the Day ….

Base:                                                                                                                                                         I primed my face using L’Oreal Infallible Glow-Lock Illuminating Primer ($12.99 at Ulta) and then used a bit of Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Sephora) to blur my pores. For foundation today I used a combo of 3 drops each of NYX Pro Foundation Mixer (discontinued) in the shades Deep (a dark grey brown enhancer) and Warm (an orange based enhancer) and 2 droppers of Joah Cosmetics Truly Yours Natural Finish Foundation Drop ($6.65 on their website) in the shade Natural Ivory (this shade is just about 1/2 a shade too light for me, that’s why I used the mixers). I color corrected my under eyes using Joah Cosmetics Truly Yours Dark Circle Concealer ($8.50 on their website) in the shade Neutralizer. I used 4 dots of Joah Cosmetics  Wand Me Up Concealer ($6.50 on their website) in the shade Ivory. 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 Boxed Bronzer ($30 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Hoola. For touch up powder today I am using Catrice Prime and Fine Mattifying Waterproof Powder ($7.49 at Ulta) in the shade transparent.

Eyes:                                                                                                                                                         I primed my lids using 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 and today I chose not to set the base. For today’s eye look I used the ColourPop Brown Sugar Palette (discontinued … was a limited edition palette). For my Transition shade I used the color Jamoca (light medium orange based brown matte). I deepened the outer 1/3 of my mobile lid and the crease and outer v using the shade Sorrel (medium dark brown with a hint of grey matte). For the remaining 2/3 of my mobile lid I used the shade Auburn (warm deep bronze metallic). I then used the shade Saute (taupe with a green shift metallic) over the middle 1/3 of the mobile lid to blend the inner and outer 1/3 together. For the lower lash line I created a drop shadow using more of the shade Jamoca (light medium orange based brown matte). I then used more of the Auburn (warm deep bronze metallic) on the inner 2/3 of the lower lash line. I highlighted my inner corners using the shade Ginger (a peachy gold metallic). I lined my water lines using ColourPop BFF Creme Gel Liner ($6 on their website) in the shade Get Paid (rose gold metallic). I set my brows using the soap brow method and then filled in my brows using Joah Cosmetics Brow Down To Me Precision Brow Pencil ($6.65 on their website) in the shade Black Brown. I carved out my brow line using the BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the shimmer sides and set the brow line using the shade L’Oreal 24-HR Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.99 at Walmart) in the shade 899 Endless Pearl (a creamy ivory matte). I popped on a paid of Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes ($11.99 for a 2 pack at Ulta) in the style Flirty and then I coated my upper and lower lashes with L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara ($8.99 at Ulta).

Cheeks and Lips:                                                                                                                                For blush tonight I chose ColourPop Pressed Powder Blush ($8 on their website) in the shade Catch My Vibe (pale baby pink matte).  I highlighted my Cupid’s Bow, tops of the cheeks, center of the chin, bridge of the nose, and high points of the brows using the Rachh Loves & Pixi Beauty The Layers Highlighting Palette ($24 at Target) and using a combo of the shades Knit (a caramel rose gold with a golden flip) and the shade Clutch (soft white yellow gold). I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($7 on their website) in the shade Ellaire  (blackened cranberry) and topped off my lips using ColourPop Lippie Stix ($7 on their website) in the shade Goldie (: rich brick red matte).

Final Thoughts:                                                                                                                                   So I am still trying to figure out the way to use the Joah foundation since it’s so light on me… I still have to tweak it a bit… I think 1 less drop of deep and maybe 2 more drops of warm will do the tick … but so far the Joah foundation holds up to mix ins. I definitely think the white cast in yesterday’s pictures was from the powder … I have decluttered that powder from my collection.

Well that’s all for now dolls. Hope you are in good health and spirits and that you are hanging in there. Remember dolls …. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Orange Glam Look Face of the Day

Published March 27, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! How are you doing today? Great I hope. I got up feeling pretty good today. Nose is still running but my sore throat is gone. I didn’t get much sleep last night because I was up coughing a heap but even with that I feel pretty OK today. I got up wanting to play with my Urban Decay Born To Run palette ($49 at Sephora) and I wanted to go a little glam today too so this was the look I came up with. Today ends my scent of the day series as I have run out of  new perfumes to share with you…. though I think I may still share with you what scent I am wearing …. I just wont be doing an individual picture and scent note for them since I already have done my whole collection. *NOTE* these pictures don’t do this eye look justice! For 1 it doesn’t look like the orange pop on the outer v is blended in but it truly is and there is this amazingly pretty gradient of colors that isn’t showing up on camera. So let’s jump into today’s scent and Face of the Day ….

Beyonce Heat. My mom actually gave me this perfume. But I did find it on Amazon for $12.50 for a 3.4 fluid ounce bottle. The scent notes are: Red Vanilla Orchid, Magnolia, Neroli, Peach, Honeysuckle, Almond, Musky Cream, Sequoia Wood, Tonka, and Amber. This scent is slightly sweet but heady with musk. It’s a very exotic scent. I have plans on repurchasing this one when I run out because I don’t have anything like this scent in my collection and it’s another scent that I get tons of complements on and questions as to what I am wearing.

As my second transition and also crease color I used the shade Riff (brown-nude with floating micro-sparkle a light sequin shadow). For my full mobile lid I took went into the shade Accelerate (reddish copper metallic) and then tapped the shade Ignite (rose gold metallic) over the middle 1/3 of the lid for added dimension. For the outer v and outer 1/3 of the mobile lid I used the shade Baja (burnt orange matte). For the lower lash line I created a drop shadow using more of the shade Riff and then I went in and smoked that out using more of the shade Weekender. I then went in closest to the lash line and used more of the shade Baja from the outer end to 2/3 of the way in and then used a combo of the shades Accelerate and Ignite for the remaining 1/3 of the lash line. I tight lined both my upper and lower lash line using Pixi by Petra Endless Silky Pen ($12 at Target and on the Pixi website) in the shade Black Caviar (a deep rich brown). I highlighted the inner corners using the shade Blaze (light peach with pink shift metallic).

Final Thoughts:                                                                                                                                   So I’m still waiting for my Covid-19 test results…. I’m going stir crazy at this point…. I mean I know we are on lock down right now, but if I couldn’t only get my test results back at least I’d be able to get out to go to the super market to food shop with my husband. I’m just so frustrated right now.

The President has signed our country’s Covid-19 Stimulus Package Bill so hopefully within a few weeks we will get some much needed help with our bills. I feel bad because I’ve had to dodge my non-essential bills because we just can’t pay them right now because my husband had to take a pay cut to stay working…. which has had a trickle down effect on our budget (as it has for many of us).

This weekend, to break up the monotony I was thinking of rearranging the furniture of my bedroom and living room. I also keep forgetting that we have a pool table/ping pong table that we could be using because it’s in our lanai so technically we are still sheltering in place.

Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope and pray that you are all in good spirits and in good health. Have a great rest of your day/night. Remember …. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Smokey Gold Eye Face of the Day

Published March 25, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day going? Great I hope. I woke up around 8 AM today and kinda just laid in bed for awhile. I’m feeling a bit better today. Throat is no longer sore and my pain level is around 6. I still have a runny nose and a nasty little cough but for the most part I’m doing pretty good. I called my doctor for my Covid-19 test results and they STILL don’t have them back from the testing center…. this worries me because that means that there are a heap of people with symptoms that have taken the test and this is why the results are taking forever…. that makes me sad for the human race. Well …. let’s jump into today’s scent and Face of the Day …..

I have repurchased this scent 2 times and truly ardor this scent. the notes are  orchid, peony,  pear rose, orange blossom, plum, tiare flower, yellow champaca, oakmoss, musk, amber and Guaiac wood. This is a clean crisp scent that’s slightly sweet with a heady floral make up. This perfume is great for either casual or dressy looks and is one of my all time favorite Spring time scents.

I was super excited that I got my winged liner to match on both eyes. I was really feeling this look today everything came together smoothly with out any problems. I love this lip color …. this may be my new favorite nude lip ever.

My husband’s job informed him that he will have to take a 10% cut in pay to remain working during this whole Corona thing. I am a little worried but feel blessed that at least he still has his job. The only bad part is that he will have to take a furlough for the first part of April which means I have no idea how we will get by for the first 1/2 of April… as I’m sure many others are feeling.

This is such a troubling time in the world…. I just want you all to know that I appreciate you keeping me going by visiting my blog. I pray that you are OK and that you will continue to be in good health. I just want you to know I’m here if you ever just need to vent your frustrations or voice your fears and worries. I’m only just either a comment or email away …. My email address is on my blog home page …. please don’t hesitate to shoot me a message if you just need a safe place to vent…. love you all and stay safe.

Well that’s all for now dolls. Have a great rest of your day/night. I hope and pray that you are in good spirits and that you are in good health. Remember…. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Taupe Eye Face of the Day

Published March 23, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope.I’m off to a late start today. Slept in until 8:30 Am. Stayed up late watching YouTube videos. I learned how to laminate my brows at home …. I really want to try this but I have to wait till my brows grow in thicker before I try it. I still don’t have the Covid-19 test results back … My doctor said that they are still a few days to a week backed up on top of the 10 extra days that they initially states. So that’s a bit frustrating. Hubby went back to work today after a week off. He was told today that his company may have to go on temporary layoff for non essential personnel and that essential personnel may have to go on furlough for a week or two or possible take a 10% cut in pay …. so that’s a bit troublesome. Well enough of the stressful let’s talk scent and Face of the Day ….

JLo Glow bu Jennifer Lopez. I purchased mine from Fragrencenet.com for $30 for a 3.4 fkuid ounce bottle. I enjoy this scent very much. It just doesn’t stick around long. I clock the staying power to be around 3 hours tops. But I like it enough that I don’t mind reapplying when needed. When I worked I would simply take a travel atomizer with me filled with this perfume. Top notes are Grapefruit, Mandarin, and Neroli. Middle notes are: Iris, Rose, Tuberose, Jasmine, and Orange Blossom. The scent is round out with bottom notes of: Musk, Amber, Sandalwood, and Vanilla. When I was healthy this use to be my everyday work scent. This is a fresh sweet musky scent that pairs great with a cute top and jeans and also with a cute little summer dress and flip flops. My husband really likes this scent too so I wear it often on date night.

For my transition shade I used the color Faith (a medium dark brown with warm yellow undertones matte).

On the remaining 2/3 of my mobile lid I used the shade Pre-Game (a warm yellow matte) and then I layered the Hikari Creme Pigment ($15 on their website) in the shade Fairytale (an icy white shimmer). I then went in with just a little of the shade Extra Bitter (a warm medium copper brown with a slight reddish undertone matte) and dusted it at the top of my transition shade to add a bit more warmth in the transition. I also used this shade on the middle 1/3 of the mobile lid to blend the outer and inner 1/3 together.

Final Thoughts:                                                                                                                                      I really don’t have much to say for my final thoughts this week. I’m starting to get cabin fever as is probably most of the world right now. I had a company reach out to me to test out one of their products for review …. I will haul it and then review it once I receive it. I should be receiving my purchase from ColourPop of a palette I put together and 2 more lipsticks tomorrow so I will haul and swatch them tomorrow for you …. I did get the bad news that ColourPop has suspended their processing and distribution centers so until this Corona Virus thing is over I wont be able to swatch or haul the new Mulan Collection for you…. I will once I have received it. Also I purchased a full face of the K-Beauty brand Joah and am currently waiting for my order to be processed and shipped. I took advantage of their sale that they are currently running for buy 1 get 1 1/2 off … I got 25 items for $20 including tax and shipping.

Well that’s all for now dolls. Hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night, that you are in good health, that you are in great spirits, and that you are having a good pain day. Remember …. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Simple Look Face of the Day

Published March 22, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I’m still not 100% well yet, but I’m doing better than I have been. I slept in till 9:30 Am today. I still have a sore throat, runny nose, and a cough but my body is starting to feel better and I no longer have the shakes. I’m still feeling pretty weak and so I decided just to do a simple eye look today…. Let’s jump into today’s scent and Face of the Day ….

Juicy Couture Parfum. I purchased mine at Ulta for $96 for 3.4 Fluid Ounces. This is one of my husband’s favorite perfumes on me. The scent notes are:  watermelon, mandarin orange, passion fruit, green apple, green leaves, hyacinth, marigold lily, tuberose, rose hip, precious woods, patchouli, caramel, vanilla and crème brûlée. This is another really great everyday casual dress perfume. The scent stays around for about 6 to 8 hours of wear and is sweet but not over the top sweet. You can really pick up on the caramel in this scent. I love this one for just daily use but i have been known to wear it on date night too because hubby loves it so much.

Base:                                                                                                                                                         I primed my face using I Heart Revolution Coconut Dream Hydrating Primer ($8 at Ulta). I also used a tad bit of Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Ulta) around my nose and outer parts of my cheeks to blur my pores. My foundation today is a combo of 2 pumps of Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter ($45 at Sephora) in the shade Dew You? and 2 scoops of The Balm Even Steven Whipped Foundation ($22 on their website) in the shade Light/Medium. I lightly color corrected my under eyes using Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate ($12 at Target and on the Pixi Beauty website) in the shade Brightening Peach. I used just a touch of The Balm Time Balm Concealer ($18 on their website) in the shade Light/Medium.  I set my full face using  Believe Beauty Matte Blur Loose Powder ($5 at Dollar General) in the shade Translucent and warmed up my face using Benefit Hoola Bronzer ($30 at Ulta). For touch up powder today I am using Flower Beauty Light Illusion Perfecting Powder ($13.99 at Target) in the shade Beige L4-M1.

Eyes:                                                                                                                                                         I primed my lids using 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 and today I chose not to set the base. For today’s eye look I used a few shades from The Balm Meet Matt(e) Adore and Meet Matt(e) Nude palettes (both palettes were limited edition and are now discontinued, however you can still find them on Amazon and Bridette’s Boutique . I started my eyes using the Adore palette…. For my first transition shade I used the shade Matt Munoz (a pastel coral peach matte). For my second transition shade I used the shade Matt Bernard (a light camel matte). For my crease shade I chose the shade Matt Jones (a mustard toned brown matte). I then switched to the Nude palette and deepened my crease and the outer 1/3 of my mobile lid using the shade Matt Rosen (a mid toned chocolate brown with a slight red undertone matte). On the remaining 2/3 of my mobile lid I used  L’Oreal Infallible 24-HR Eye Shadow ($9.99 on their website) in the shade 892 Amber Rush (rose gold with a copper shift). For my lower lash line I used more of the shade Matt Bernard (a light camel matte) and just swept it along the lower lash line not blowing it out too far. I then went in with more of the shade Matt Rosen (a mid toned chocolate brown with a slight red undertone matte) to deepen the lash line. I lined my lower waterlines using BH Cosmetics Power Pencil ($8 at Ulta and on their website) in the shade Beige. I highlighted my inner corners using Hikari Cosmetics Creme Pigment ($15 on their website) in the shade Honeydew (icy pink with silver flip).  I set my brows using Maybelline Great Lash Mascara ($6.99 at Ulta but I purchased mine from Amazon) in clear and then filled in my brows using Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil ($24 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade 4.5 and then I carved out my brow line using the BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the shimmer side and set the brow line using the shade Matt Malloy (pure white matte) from the Nude palette. I popped on a pair Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes ($12 for 5 pairs at Ulta) in the style Flirty and coated my upper and lower lashes with L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara ($8.99 at Ulta).

Cheeks and Lips:                                                                                                                               For blush today I used the ColourPop Pressed Powder Blush ($8 on their website) in the shade Catch My Vibe (pale baby pink matte). I highlighted my Cupid’s Bow, tops of the cheeks, bridge of the nose, center of my chin, and high points of the brows using Benefit Boxed Highlighter ($30 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Cookie (a pale yellow champagne with a slight silver reflect). I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil (now only sold in their Lippie Pencil Vault on their website) in the shade On Ice ( deep sangria) and filled in the lips using ColourPop Lippie Stix ($7 on their website) in the shade Ellarie (deep cranberry matte).

Final Thoughts:                                                                                                                                      I just wanted to reach out and say I appreciate each and every one of you who take the time out of your days to read my blog. It means more to me than you will ever know. I’m just a nerdy girl with an obsession for makeup who just simply loves to share it with the world. I’m too self conscious to have my own YouTube channel… and at 43 I really don’t know that I would be able to make my way through YouTube… so I blog …. and you read it …. and that is such an amazing thing for me. Your kind words and just the very thought that you have taken time… valuable time… out of your day to just pop in and see what I have been up to means the world to me. So thank you very much and I hope that you will know that I am here for you if ever you just need a friendly ear to lean in.

Well that’s all dolls. I hope you are in good health, in great spirits, and that you have a great rest of your day/night. Remember save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Making Mauves Eye Look #2 Face of the Day

Published March 21, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

*NOTE* I realize there is so much seriousness going on in the world right now and I just wanted to say the health updates I have been giving isn’t in anyway me whining or complaining about having the flu when so many more people are so very ill right now. I just want to update you on my individual journey with this Covid-19 virus… since my Doctor and the testing center have put me on quarantine until my test results come back I thought I would log my experience with what is going on right now.

Also …. I know with everything that is going on right now with this pandemic that makeup and beauty aren’t really important topics…. but I find that makeup helps take my mind off of things for a while and blogging about it helps fill my day with something other than watching TV from bed. I hope and pray that you do know I am not being flippant about what is going on in our world right now. I just want to bring something to the world that isn’t virus related to read and maybe even something that you might like to recreate to give you something to do while we are all stuck inside the house. Something to help take your minds off of this very serious situation, even if it’s just for a few moments…. I in no way meant to come across as arrogant, flippant, or callous … I say this because it was bought to my attention that this is how my blog posts are coming across…. I am truly sorry if I have made anyone feel this way…. this was never my attention…. now with that being said… I will continue to do a daily makeup look and will continue to blog about all things beauty because it helps me get my mind off being stuck in quarantine and it gives me something to do while I wait out my test results…. I just didn’t mean to, nor do I now mean to, offend anyone… and for that I am sorry.

So with that said … let’s jump into today’s post….

Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I was feeling so crappy today that I stayed in bed until 11:30 AM. My fever has broken but I still have the chills. I still feel pretty weak and my throat is still very sore. This cough kept me up 1/2 the night. I’m able to hold food down again so that’s a plus.

Today I decided to play with the ColourPop Making Mauves Palette again. So let’s get into today’s scent and Face of the Day ….

Love and Glamour by Jennifer Lopez. This was gift so I don’t know where it was purchased or even how much was spent on it but in researching the notes to this perfume I was able to find that it is sold on line at sites like perfume.com for around $43 for a 2.5 fluid ounce bottle. the top notes of this perfume are: Italian Mandarin, Guava, and Peach Flesh. The heart notes are: Coconut, Orange Blossom, and Jasmine Petals. And the base notes are: Sandalwood, Musk, and Amber. This perfume is a very unassuming scent. IT has a very crisp slightly sweet scent that just seems to become part of  your body. What I mean is some perfumes seem to just sit on top and over power the skin…. this scent sinks into the skin nicely and just melds nicely with your own natural scent. I love this perfume very much. I have the 2.5 fluid ounce bottle and when I have finished it I will definitely be repurchasing it.

Base:                                                                                                                                                         I primed my face using I Heart Revolution Coconut Dream Hydrating Primer ($8 at Ulta). My foundation today is a combo of 2 pumps of Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter ($45 at Sephora) in the shade Dew You? and 7 pumps of Pixi Beauty Flawless Beauty Fluid (Discontinued but can still be found on Amazon) in the shade No. 3 Warm. I lightly color corrected my under eyes using Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate ($12 at Target and on the Pixi Beauty website) in the shade Brightening Peach. I used 5 dots for each under eye of ColourPop No Filter Concealer ($7 on their website) in the shade Medium 20. I set my full face using  Believe Beauty Matte Blur Loose Powder ($5 at Dollar General) in the shade Translucent and warmed up my face using Benefit Hoola Bronzer ($30 at Ulta).

Eyes:                                                                                                                                                         I primed my lids using 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 and today I chose not to set the base again today… I really like how this base grabs a hold of the shadows and it is really easy to blend shadows out even though the base is sticky. or today’s eye look I used the ColourPop Making Mauves Eye shadow Palette ($14 on their website). For my first transition shade I used the color Solitaire (soft mauve matte). For my second transition shade I used the color Tongue Tied: (mauve with pinpoints of silver and violet pearl sequin shadow). For my crease and the outer 1/3 of my mobile lid I used the shade Marquee (muted plum matte). On the remaining 2/3 of my mobile lid I used the shade Mauve On Top (icy rose metallic). I then went in with the shade A LA Mode (true mauve with pinpoints of silver and copper pearl ultra metallic) and patted it on the middle 1/3 to blend the shades together…. I then went back in with the shade Mauve On Top and patted that over the middle 1/3 to bring down the color a bit. For my lower lash line I used more of the shades Solitaire (to create a drop shadow) and Tongue Tided (to deepen up the drop shadow) and then I went in with more of Marquee (to deepen up the lash line). I lined my lower waterlines using NYX Faux Whites Liner ($8 at Ulta) in the shade Linen (a nude). I set my brows using Maybelline Great Lash Mascara ($6.99 at Ulta but I purchased mine from Amazon) in clear and then filled in my brows using Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil ($24 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade 4.5 and then I carved out my brow line using the BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the shimmer side and set the brow line using L’Oreal Infallible 24-HR Eye Shadow ($9.99 on their website) in the shade 899 Endless Pearl (a creamy vanilla matte).I popped on a pair Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes ($12 for 5 pairs at Ulta) in the style Flirty and coated my upper and lower lashes with L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara ($8.99 at Ulta).

Cheeks and Lips:                                                                                                                               For blush today I used the ColourPop Pressed Powder Blush ($8 on their website) in the shade Coast to Coast (soft mauve matte). I highlighted my Cupid’s Bow, tops of the cheeks, bridge of the nose, and high points of the brows using Benefit Boxed Highlighter ($30 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Cookie (a pale yellow champagne with a slight silver reflect). I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil (now only sold in their Lippie Pencil Vault on their website) in the shade On Ice ( deep sangria) and filled in the lips using ColourPop Lippie Stix ($7 on their website) in the shade Ellarie (deep cranberry matte).

Final Thoughts:                                                                                                                                      I tried this foundation with the L’Oreal True Match Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops ($14.99 at Ulta) in the shade Day Break and this made the foundation pill up and slide around the face and it made the foundation lift off from some places on the face… so I had to take the foundation off and use a different illuminator to mix in. At first I thought it might have been the primer (I had put on a large amount of primer because I squeezed too much out and couldn’t get it back into the tube so I just used it on my face). It might very well have been the primer overload but I decided to go back in with a small amount of primer and a different illuminator anyway. The result was a smooth, even application of the mixture

Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope and pray that you are safe, healthy, and in good spirits and that you have a great rest of your day/night. Remember …. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO
