Neutral Look With A Pop Of Blue Face of the Day

Published May 12, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I actually woke up fairly early today (around 7:30 AM) and I feel well rested and my pain level is pretty normal today. My energy fluctuating but I was able to cook lunch for my Mom and still have enough energy to sit down and do my makeup … so basically I’ve beat my illness today.

For perfume today I am wearing Estee Lauder Pleasures…. Now, let’s jump into today’s Face of the Day ….

20200512_160506822184157533819016.jpg

Base:

I first primed my problematic pore areas with Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Ulta) and then primed the full face using Makeup Forever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Primer ($37 at Sephora) in Smoothing. I then went in with the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44 at Sephora) in the shade 3 Light Medium. My foundation today is J Cat Beauty’s HD Perfection Skinsealer Foundation (regularly $7.99 but on sale for $5 on their website) in the shade Warm Honey (it’s too dark and too orange for me so I mixed in some NYX Pro Foundation Mixer (both are $12 on their website) in white and also in olive and that created the perfect shade for me). I contoured using Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand ($38 at Sephora, on the Beautylish website, and on the Charlotte Tilbury website) in the shade Medium Dark to contour the perimeter of my face and down the bridge of my nose. I highlighted the tops of my cheek bones, bridge of the nose, center of the chin, and high points of my forehead using Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand ($38 on the Beautylish website) and then I went in with just a touch of Benefit Boxed Highlighter ($30 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade cookie to set the high points of my face. I concealed my under eyes using Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Liquid Concealer ($32 at Sephora) in the shade 3 Fair. I warmed up the perimeter of my face using Tarte Breezy Cream Bronzer ($29 on the Tarte website) in the shade Grace Bay (deep matte bronze). I set my under eyes using Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder for Under Eyes ($28 at Ulta) in the shade 1 and then set the rest of my face using the  Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Setting Powder ($33 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Translucent. I then topped off  the perimeter of my face using a light layer of MAC Bronzing Powder ($30 at MAC) in the shade Matte Bronze. I chose the Flower Beauty Light Illusion Perfecting Powder ($13.99 at Ulta) in the shade Beige L4-M1.

Eyes:

I set my brows using Believe Beauty Eyebrow Styling Gel ($4 at Dollar General) in clear and then filled in my brows using Joah Brow Down To Me Precision Brow Pencil ($9.50 on their website) in the shade Brunette. I carved out the brow line using BH Cosmetics Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte side and then 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. For today’s eye look I used the Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette (discontinued). I started by setting my eye base using the shade Laetus (a warm toned beige matte). I then went into the shade Ludwin (a warm toned peachy orange matte) all through the crease up to the brow line. I then went into the shade Lucius (soft beige satin) all over the mobile lid and then I patted a light layer of Hikari Cream Pigment ($15 on their website) in the shade Fairytale (icy white pearl) over the top, and then I felt that the mobile lid was too bright so I went into more of the shade Ludwin and dusted a very light layer of that over the top of the mobile lid. I then went into the shade Samael (dusty fawn matte) into the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid and then into the outer v of the crease. I wanted it a bit deeper so I then layered the shade Sytry (chocolate brown matte) and then I wanted it a bit warmer so I then layered the shade Succubus (rich rust matte) over the top of the other 2 shades. I then took a clean fluffy crease brush and buffed the whole eye look out to make sure there was no harshness to this look … I wanted an almost airbrushed look to the shadows. For the lower lash line I created a soft focus drop shadow starting with more of the shade Laetus and then more of Samael and then finally Sytry to deepen the lash line up and then I went into more of Succubus to warm up the under eye and then I buffed out the edges using more of Ludwin. I then went back to the brow line and smudges in a bit of Liberatus (a cool toned whitish beige matte). I highlighted the inner corners using Benefit Boxed Highlighter ($30 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade cookie. I then lined my lower water lines using Revolution Pro Supreme Pigment Gel Eyeliner ($5 on their website) in the shade Nude. I then created i mid-sized wing on my upper lash line using Maybelline Color Tattoo 24-HR Eyeshadow (was gifted to me when my best friend passed away last year but can be found on Amazon for $6.50 and can be found on Walmart’s website) in the shade Tenacious Teal. I coated my upper and lower lashes with 1 coat of Benefit Roller Lash Mascara ($25 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Black.

Cheeks and Lips:

I applied my blush with the rest of my cream products since I was using Tarte Sugar Rush Beach Cheeks Cream Blush ($15 on their website) in the shade Beaches & Cream (a peachy pink). I lined and filled in my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade Another Round (rosey nude) and then tapped a bit of L’Oreal Rouge Signature Lightweight Matte Lip Stain ($5.99 at Ulta) in the shade I Empower (a pale dusty peachy coral) over the top and then I topped it off with a light layer of NARS Lip Gloss ($24 on their website) in the shade Striptease (a champagne nude).

Final Thoughts:

I really like this muted look with a punchy pop of teal in the winged eyeliner. I could have played up the lip a little more but I kinda dig the only pop of bright color comes from the lash line.  I really want to play around with more colorful lash lines … I typically only wear black and brown on my upper lash line … but this pop of color is so fun.

I will be doing another Spanish food blog tomorrow because I’ll be making Bacalao Guisado (Stewed Salted Cod). So stay tuned.

My beauty fridge should be delivered tomorrow of course I will post about it once it’s set up.

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

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

Valentine’s Day Inspired Face of the Day

Published February 8, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!!! How you doing today? Good I hope. I woke up a bit later than I had planned to but I am feeling pretty good today. It’s a bit cold so I’ve got myself bundled up to help keep from getting extra pain. I woke up wanting to do a Valentine’s Day makeup look so this is what I came up with. Today I still am testing 5 items to see whether or not I will be keeping them as well. The products I chose are…. ELF Illuminating Palette, Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette, Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation, MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, and Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick (in the shade Lolita II). I will review these products and tell whether or not I decided to keep them in Final Thoughts but for now …. let’s jump into the Face of the Day….

20200208_145321

Base: I primed my face using NYX Pore Filler ($14 at Ulta and on the NYX website). I color corrected using Tarte CC Undereye Corrector ($25 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Light-Medium. For foundation I chose Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation ($50 at Sephora) in the shade Beige 3. I concealed my under eyes using MAC Pro Longwear Concealer ($25 at Ulta and MAC) in the shade NC 30. I set my face using Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder ($3.97 at Walmart) in the shade 011 Creamy Natural. I warmed up the face using Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer ($5.99 at Target) in the shade Bronzer. I set my under eyes and baked my jaw line, bridge of the nose, and center of the forehead using RCMA No Color Powder ($15 on the Beautylish website).

20200208_145300

Eyes: I primed my lids using NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer ($30 at Sephora) in the shade Medium 1 Custard and set that with Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder ($39 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Translucent. For today’s eye look I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette ($42 at Ulta). As my 1st transition color I used the shade Burnt Orange (a tan based orange matte). My 2nd transition color is the shade Venetian Red (a dusty mid-toned blue based red satin). On my mobile lid I used the color Vermeer (a pale champagne shimmer) on the full lid. I then deepened the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid and the outer v and low down on the crease using the shade Red Ochre (a deep maroon red matte). I then took the shade Primavera (a golden champagne shimmer) on the inner 2/3 of my mobile lid. I then took more of the shade Venetian Red and patted that in the middle 1/3 of the mobile lid to mesh the inner and outer 1/3 together. For my drop shadow on the lower lash line I used more of Burnt Orange followed by Venetian Red. I highlighted the inner corners using more of the shade Vermeer. I then deepened the lower lash line with more of the shade Red Ochre. I lined both the upper and lower waterlines using Iglot Eyeliner Gel ($17 on the Beautylish website) in the shade 90 Brown. I set my brows using Pixi by Petra Brow Tamer ($10 at Target) in the shade clear and then filled in the brows using ELF Ultra Precise Brow Pencil ($5 at Target and on the ELF website) in the shade Dark Brown. I carved out my brow line using BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte side and set that using the shade Tempera (a pale peach based vanilla matte). For mascara I chose NYX On the Rise Volume Liftscara ($11 at Ulta and on the NYX website) in the shade Black.

20200208_145418

Cheeks and Lips: For blush today I used Flower Beauty Flower Pot Powder Blush ($8.98 at Walmart, Ulta, and on the Flower Beauty website) in the shade Warm Hibiscus (a rosey pink with a gold sheen). I highlighted the tops of my cheeks, bridge of my nose, Cupid’s bow, and center of the forehead using ELF Illuminating Palette ($8 on their website) and mixing all 4 shades together. I then lined and filled in my lips using Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Liner (normally $19 some shades on sale for $8 at Sephora and the shade I used was a limited edition shade no longer available) in the shade OG Lolita (a pinkish terra cotta nude). I first tried to top the lips using Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($21 at Sephora) in the shade Lolita II (a deep terra cotta nude matte) but it felt so dry and so tight that I promptly took it off and re-lined and re-filled my lips with OG Lolita. I then topped my lips off with NARS Lip Gloss ($24 at Sephora and on their website) in the shade Stripe Tease (a pale beige nude).

Final Thoughts:

ELF Illuminating Palette:                                                                                                               This palette isn’t that old but I hardly ever reach for it. It’s a very powdery and dusty formula that is a subtle highlight. I have tried it several different ways and nothing really seems to wow me. I have so many highlighters that I just don’t want to keep one around that doesn’t make me happy to use it. I have decluttered this one from my collection.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette:                                                            When this palette first came out I could not put it down. I wore it almost every day. But I haven’t really reached for it much in the past year and 1/2. I used it today because I had never tried the red shades. The reds blended out so wonderfully but there was tons of kick back in the pans and fallout on the face. I have most of the neutral colors in other palettes and I did just order the new ColourPop Valentine’s Day palette which is chalk full of reds. The shimmer shades don’t wow me as much as most of the shimmers I have in other palettes so I have decided, reluctantly to declutter this palette from my collection.

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation:                                                                                                     The shade I have is a spot on skin match. This foundation is a bit weird. Sometimes it is glowy and sometimes it goes on matte. I think this is do to the primer I am using. For instance I used a pore filler primer and today this foundation went on matte… it also didn’t need to be set down, it wasn’t tacky at all, but if I use let’s say the BECCA Backlight Priming Filter… this foundation is dewy and stays tacky. I do love the way this foundation looks on my skin and I enjoy the coverage it gives (a sort of high medium coverage). I will not be decluttering this foundation from my collection.

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer:                                                                                                    This was the 1st MAC product I ever purchased. I do love the way this concealer looks under my eyes, I just wish it was lighter in shade. NC 30 is my exact shade match I think NC 20 would have been better from my under eyes. I haven’t used this concealer a ton because I just have so much concealer, but I do really enjoy this one. I think I will use it up and then purchase it in the shade NC 20. I will not be decluttering it from my collection.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick (in the shade Lolita II):                                              This is the last of my KVD liquid lipsticks I have left in my collection. I had decluttered the rest of my stash. I kept it because the shade has sentimental value to me. I used it on my niece for her prom and I just couldn’t part with it. It’s just so stiff on the lips that I don’t enjoy wearing it. I have decided to declutter it from my collection.

*** as a side note, most of the products I have decluttered from my collection I have gifted to either my niece or to a friend… there are a few products I have just tossed in the bun but mostly these products have been given a new home ***

20200208_145531

Well that’s all for now dolls. I will be receiving my ColourPop All That Palette on Monday so I will be doing another Valentine’s Day look on Tuesday. I will still be testing out other products that I’m on the fence about to see whether or not to declutter them, so stay tunes… in the mean time I hope you are in good spirits and that you have a good rest of your day/night. Until tomorrow dolls… remember save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Older Makeup Retry Face of the Day

Published February 7, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Hopefully it’s a good one for you. I woke up in some pain, it rained all night and is colder today and it’s slated to rain today too so my fibro is going haywire. I have 7 more products to share with you, 5 of which I tested out and 2 of which I just knew straight off the bat that I wasn’t going to use. The products on the chopping block today are …. Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette, It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream, Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer, NYX Gotcha Covered Concealer, NYX Matte Bronzer (in medium … I own 2 shades this one and Deep so I tested this one to see which I would keep).  I will discuss these products and what I will keep or declutter in Final Thoughts…. So let’s jump into the Face of the Day.

20200207_130329

Base: I primed the face using Marc Jacobs Invisible Under(Cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer ($45 at Sephora) and ELF Poreless Putty Primer ($8 at Ulta and on the ELF website). I color corrected using Tarte CC Undereye Corrector ($25 at Ulta) in the shade Light-Medium. For foundation I used All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation ($49 at Sephora) in the shade Light 5 Fiji. I concealed my under eyes using NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer ($30 on their website) in the shade Medium 1 Custard. I set my face using J Cat Beauty Aquasurance Compact Foundation ($13.99 at Ulta and on the J Cat Beauty website) in the shade Natural. I warmed up my face using NYX Matte Bronzer ($10 at Ulta) in the shade Medium. I set my under eyes and baked my jaw line, center of the forehead, and bridge of the nose using RCMA No Color Powder ($15 on the Beautylish website).

20200207_130118

Eyes: I primed my lids using more of the NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer ($30 on their website) in the shade Medium 1 Custard and set that using Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder ($39 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Translucent.  For today’s eye look I used the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette ($49 at Sephora and on the Too Faced website). For my 1st transition color I used the shade Georgia (a muted soft light peach matte). For my 2nd transition color I used the shade Candied Peach (a coral based peach with gold flecks sequin). My crease color is the shade Puree (a mid-tone yellow based brown matte). On my mobile lid I first started out with the shade Nectar (a pale yellow based peach shimmer) on the inner 2/3 and then I used the shade Caramelized (a mid-toned brown with gold reflect metallic) on the outer 1/3. I then went into the shade Luscious (a taupe with gold reflect metallic) and used that on the middle 1/3 of the mobile lid. I didn’t like the way it looked so I layered the shade Bellini (a mauvey pink shimmer) over the inner 2/3 and then layered the shade Just Peachy (a peachy pink shimmer) over the middle 1/3 blending it toward the inner 1/3. I then added the shade Charmed I’m Sure (a dusty dark brown matte) into the outer v and low down on the crease. I set my brow hair using Pixi by Petra Brow Tamer ($10 at Target) in clear and then filled in the brows using ELF Ultra Precise Brow Pencil ($5 at Ulta, Walmart, and the ELF website) in the shade Dark Brown. I carved out the brow line using BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte side and then set that with the shade White Peach (a creamy white satin). I lined my lower waterlines using ColourPop BFF Creme Gel Liner ($6 on their website) in the shade Get Paid (rose gold metallic). I lined my upper lash line using Kat Von D Tattoo Liner ($21 at Sephora) in the shade Mad Max Brown.  For mascara I used Pixi by Petra Lash Booster Mascara ($15 at Target and on the Pixi website) in the shade Blackest Black.

20200207_130358

Cheeks and Lips: On the cheeks I used ColourPop Super Shock Cheek ($8 on their website) in the shade Birthday Suit (a neutral pink satin). I highlighted the tops of my cheeks, bridge of my nose, Cupid’s bow, and center of the forehead using ColourPop Super Shock Cheek ($8 on their website) in the shade Wisp (pearlized golden champagne). I lined my lips using Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat ($22 at Sephora, and on the Beautylish website) in the shade Pillow Talk (a neutral pink) and filled in my lips using BH Cosmetics Cashmere Cream Comfort Lipstick ($8 at Ulta and on the BH Cosmetics website…. on sale for $6) in the shade Yas (a coral pink).

Final Thoughts:

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette:                                                                                                          I purchased this one on a whim when it first came out. I barely ever use it. I just feel underwhelmed with it. I don’t reach for peach shades often. While I think the look I came up with today was a pretty soft Spring look, it’s just not my cup of tea. Not to mention that there isn’t a cohesive array of shades. There is tons of kick back in the pans and some fall out on the face. I just don’t feel inspired by this palette and so I have decided to declutter it from my collection.

It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream:                                                                                 I normally use this CC cream during the summer months… I just have found other BB and CC creams that I like more and that do not have that odd scent to it. Not to mention I have it in the shade Medium (which is a tad darker than me, but Light is too light for me). It just feels greasier than the other BB and CC creams I have so I have decided to declutter this one from my collection.

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner:                                                                                                                  This is one of my favorite ink liner formulas. I have it in both Black and Brown. It doesn’t seep into the fine lines of my lids, doesn’t transfer to the lower lash line, and stays in place all day. While I do not support Kat Von D anymore, I do have some of her products that I am trying to use up. I will not be decluttering this from my collection.

NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation:                                                                     The shade I have is a spot on match for my skin tone. I love this foundation so much. It just looks so pretty on the skin. I haven’t reach for it a ton this past year, honestly most of last year I was in a bad depression and didn’t do my makeup but when I came out of the depression I still didn’t reach for it much. I really do love this foundation and have moved it to my everyday drawer so that I can use it more. I will not be decluttering this one.

NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer:                                                                                              I have a love/hate relationship with this one. I love the coverage I get. I love how it looks under the eyes. I love to use it as a primer for my lids… But I hate that I can’t wear it without setting it. When I set it it looks dry, even after I use setting spray. But I can’t leave it without powder because it creases on me…. I haven’t reached for it much, so I plan to move it to my everyday drawer to try and use it up within the next 6 months. If I haven’t used it up by then I will declutter it… for now I will not be decluttering this concealer.

NYX Gotcha Covered Concealer:                                                                                                  This concealer was discontinued. I don’t have much of it left, and I’m not wowed by it… Honestly I have so many concealers that I just can’t justify keeping it. I have decluttered it.

NYX Matte Bronzer: In the shade Medium:                                                                                     I have this bronzer in 2 shades, medium and deep. I like the tone of the deep one more than I like the tone in the medium one. I will keep the deep one and declutter the medium one.

Well, that’s all for now dolls. I hope the rest of your day/night is a good one. Stay tuned tomorrow when I revisit some more makeup on the chopping block…. and ….Remember save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO

Bronzey Smokey Eye Face of the Day

Published December 7, 2019 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Good morning dolls. We made it to the weekend!! I hope the day finds you with plenty of spoons. I woke up stiff and my Rheumatoid Arthritis is acting up, which is common for cold weather days. I had an abundance of spoons today so I tackled a bronzey smokey eye.

I used the ColourPop Brown Sugar eye shadow palette again today. I have really been enjoying the ColourPop shadows. They go on so buttery and blend like a dream.

20191207_090752 Well let’s get started.

 

Base: For primer I used the Tarte Poreless Mattifying Primer ($32 at Ulta, Sephora, and Tarte’s website) again; I’m trying to use it up since I don’t like the smell, and will not be repurchasing it. Today’s foundation is NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation ($49 at Sephora and NARS’s website) in the color Fiji. For the 3rd day in a row I have woken up with dark circles do to not being able to sleep because of pain, so I used my Tarte CC undereye corrector ($25 at Ulta Sephora and Tarte’s website) in the color light medium. I used Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Concealer (was $25 is now discontinued) in the color medium 22. To bronze my skin I used The Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel ($50 on the Chanel website) in the color Bronze Universal. I set my whole face, including undereyes, with the Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder ($39 at Sephora and on the Laura Mercier website) in the color Translucent.

20191207_090827

Eyes: I primed my eyes with the Tarte Shape Tape ($19 at Ulta) in the color Light Medium Honey. I chose the ColourPop Brown Sugar Eye Shadow Palette ($15 on the ColourPop website ) and set my lids with the color Chai. As my transition color I chose Jamocha. My crease color is Choc, I also used Choc on the outer 1/3 of my lid. For the outer v I picks a combination of Sorrel and Henna. To line my lower lash line I used a combination of Henna and Choc and then used what was left of Jamocha on my brush to defuse the hard line of eye shadow. On my lids I used Auburn, which I applied with my finger for for maximum payoff. For the inner corner highlight I used Ginger. I then switched to the Going Coconuts palette from ColourPop ($12 on the ColourPop website) and used Shredded for my brow bone highlight. My brows I used the combination of the Ultra Precise Brow Pencil ($5 on the ELF website) and Wow Brow ($4 on the ELF website) from ELF. My liner today is the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner ($20 at Sephora) in Mad Max Brown. For my lashes I used the Loreal Voluminous Base ($5.99 at Target) and paired it with the Balm Whats Your Type? mascara ($19 on The Blam website). On my water line I used The Balm Mr. Write eyeliner ($13 on Balm’s website) in the color Seymour Datenights.

 

20191207_090857

Cheeks and Lips:  Today I chose a subtle highlight. I used MAC Mineralize SkinFinish ($36 at MAC and Ulta) in the color Warm Rose. For blush I used NARS blush ($30 at Sephora) in Orgasm. My Lip combo today is Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Pencil ($19 at Sephora) in the color Bow N Arrow and MAC Matte Lipstick ($18.50 at MAC and Sephora) in Velvet Teddy. I added the tiniest amount of  the eye shadow Auburn to the center of my lips.

20191207_090809

Final Thoughts:

The NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation comes in 20 shades (6 shades for deeper skin) and is billed as a full coverage foundation. At best it is a high medium coverage foundation.

Tarte CC undereye corrector is my favorite under eye treatment. It gets the under eye bright and dewy. I hope it’s never discontinued.

Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Concealer was discontinued and that makes me a sad panda. This concealer is so good!!! It’s thick enough to cover tattoos but thin enough for the under eye.

Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel is my favorite bronzer in my collection. It’s a cream to powder formula that melts into the skin effortlessly. It makes the skin look tan, not look like a fake tan. I even use it on days where I am not wearing makeup. It’s so worth the $50 price tag. You get a ton of product even though it looks like there isn’t a lot of product you actually get 30 grams of bronzer.

The is a reason that the Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder is the only setting powder I gravitate to. It’s velvety smooth and,,as long as you use small amounts and build as you go,  it never looks cakey.

Tarte Shape Tape is a thick concealer…. I didn’t like it under my eyes but I love it as a primer for my lids. I do you this concealer on my hormonal break outs (its a good spot treatment) but I never use it to correct the skin.

I can’t say enough about the ColourPop eye shadows!! They are so buttery, so pigmented, so blendable, and so affordable!! ColourPop Brown Sugar is a great little neutral toned palette. So is the Going Coconuts palette.  I’ve only had these palettes for a week and I can’t get enough of them.

The Kat Von D Tattoo Liner is by far my favorite liquid liner. It glides on smoothly is opaque and dries down matte. It never feathers into the fine lines of my lids and it never fades. It’s a long lasting formula too.

Loreal Voluminous Base is a lash primer that I use anytime I am not using my tried and true Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black mascara. The only time I do not use it, is if I am testing out a new mascara. It really adds thickness and length to the lashes

The Balm Whats Your Type? mascara is slowly gaining my heart. It’s not as black or as voluptuous as the Carbon Black is, but it is a close enough comparison.

The Balm Mr. Write eyeliner in the color Seymour Datenights is flesh toned eyeliner that is great for the water line. It’s not as bright as the NYX FAUX Whites pencil is but it worked really well for today’s look. It’s just bright enough to give the water liner a little pop.

The Precisely Brow and the Wow Brow are my favorite brow products now. I haven’t even looked at my brow powder since trying these. ELF is killing it with products these days.

MAC Mineralize SkinFinish in Warm Rose is the most subtle highlighter I have ever tried. It’s not a glowly highlight, it’s more of a brightening highlighter that works good on smokey eye days. This one is a bit light for my skin in the colder months but looks amazing when I have a tan.

My NARS blush in Orgasm is a mini. This is the first time I am trying this cult classic and boy do I get the hype behind it!!! I just purchased the full size version. It’s prettiest coral blush I own, and I own heaps of coral blushes. It is my second favorite NARS blush (Dolce Vita being the first favorite).

The Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Pencils are some of my favorite formula. They are so creamy and pigmented and they stay put all day. In fact at the end of the day when my lipstick is gone these lip liners are still in place. They are so creamy that I have on occasion used them as a lipstick.

MAC Matte Lipstick  in Velvet Teddy is my favorite nude lip. It’s painful for me to use because it was the first lipstick I tried by MAC and the person who introduced me to it was my best friend who passed away a few months ago. It’s a matte formula that doesn’t feel drying. Is it just me or do MAC lipsticks smell like cupcakes???

 

Well that’s all for now beauty babies. I hope the weekend finds you pain free, or as close to pain free as a spoonie can be, and having plenty of spoons.

Until next time dolls, remember to reserve a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO
