Makeup Haul

Published January 23, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Like I’ve said before Tati Westbrook is one of my all time favorite YouTubers. When I saw she came out with a Beauty Blender alternative I just had to jump on it. It’s called the Bendiful and it retails for $18 on the Tati Beauty website. From first glance it is so soft and it’s much bigger than I thought it would be. I can’t wait to try it out. I’ll be doing a review on it on Saturday.

I purchased so new J Cat Beauty makeup that I will review for you tomorrow what I got is as follows ….

Primer & Glow Face Illuminator Primer … retails for $7.99 on the J Cat beauty website and you get 1.05 fluid ounces. This primer is offered with 2 different extracts…. Licorice (which is the one I purchased) and Coconut. I tested it on the back of my hand and it’s a velvety smooth primer that adds glow to the skin with out looking greasy … I’ll be testing it out tomorrow for a better knowledge of how it makes the skin look but I noticed that the back of my hand had no glitter or too much shimmer.

HD Perfection Skinsealer Foundation …. $7.99 for .85 fluid ounces on the J Cat beauty website. It comes in 10 shades with 4 shades for darker skin tones. It’s billed as having a flawless, full coverage foundation that gives the skin the most beautiful natural finish. The shade I chose is 1 shade too dark, I chose Warm Honey and I should have chosen Sweet Buff… If I end up liking the foundation I think I will purchase the correct shade if I can’t get this shade to work for me with my foundation mixer.

Staysurance Water-Sealed/Zero-Smudge Concealer…. Retails for $7.99 for .33 fluid ounces on the J Cat beauty website. It’s billed as a light-weight, yet, long lasting concealer that combats dark circles, redness, and any imperfection for a flawless look. It comes in 16 shades with 7 shades for deeper skin tones. Again I chose the wrong shade…. I went too light. I chose Custard when I should have chosen Buff…. This concealer on the back of my hand felt thick like the Tarte Shape Tape… but it felt hydrating. This one is so thick that I have a feeling that I am going to have a problem with creasing …. we shall see tomorrow.

Aquasurance Compact Foundation …. Retails for $13.99 on the J Cat beauty website and is billed a having a finely milled luxurious, silky texture that minimizes the appearance of pores. That absorbs and balances excess oil without creasing & looking cakey. As having innovative technology with water lock system to maintain moisture within the powder and that it provides medium to full coverage for a natural flawless complexion. This powdered foundation comes in 13 shades with 4 shades for deeper skin tones. Finally I picked the right shade, it’s in the color Natural. From the swatch I can tell this is a silky smooth powder and I only swiped my finger through it 2 times to get this coverage.

Golden Soleil Baked Bornzer …  Retails for $7.99 for .35 ounces of product on the J Cat beauty website and is billed as being multidimensional and light as air, this velvety SOLAR baked formula wears all day and won’t transfer onto clothes. The smooth texture blends effortlessly with any powder brush for buildable, customizable coverage that wakes skin up and delivers a lit-from-within luminosity. The non-dusty and non-drying color stays true and even for hours without oxidizing. It comes in 4 shades and I picked the 3rd shade in the rang, Cancun Golden Tan. This is a super shiny bronzer… I’m nervous about trying this one out all over my face … we shall see….

Blush Mallow Soft Blusher… Retails for $4.99 on the J Cat beauty website and is billed as a buildable formula with a marshmallow texture that transforms into a weightless. soft-matte powder finish for a healthy flushed cheek. It’s offered in 16 shades. I chose the shade Tutti Fluffy (a deep pinky coral). The texture is a creamy texture similar to the formula of the Chanel Soleil De Chanel bronzer. I don’t know how this will layer over a powdered face but I’m sure it will be OK.

You Glow Girl Baked Highlighter …. Retails for $8.99 for .30 ounces of product on the J Cat beauty website and is billed as a multi-dimensional baked formula that brings instant GLOW all day long due to high intense shimmer pigment. It is designed to complement all skin tones and all skin types. The smooth texture blends effortlessly and gives the perfect luminous finish that complete your look. It comes in 9 shades and I chose the 2nd tone in the range called Twilight. When i swatched this on the back of my hand I didn’t notice any glitter so I’m excited to try it…. I think it maybe a tinny too deep for me but I’m sure it will work with a light hand.

Hakari Cream Pigments …. Retails for $15 on their website, however I purchased mine on Amazon for $12.00 each and you get .14 ounces of product. I was running out of my Honey Dew so I picked up a back up and also wanted to try the shade Fairy Tale … in the swatches above fairy tale is on the left and honey dew is on the right.


I ran out of my Hand Skin and Nails supplement so I needed a new one and I have a friend on Facebook that sells for a company called It Works… they sell body wraps and dietary supplements and detox teas… I figured I give her some business and she gave me a discount for $35 for a 60 capsule bottle. I’ll keep you updated on how well it works once I have used it up.


Lights Lacquer Nail Polish….  Each bottle retails for $9.50 for .40 ounces of product in each bottle…. I purchased 2 single shades … Rosie and Cold Turkey and I purchased a 6 bottle bundle for $52 in the colors …. Alexandrite, Amethyst, Citrine, Emerald, Ruby, Smokey Quartz. I’ve mentioned this before but Kathleen Lights’ polish formula is my all time favorite and I am so happy to have these 8 shades to add to my collection… new Mani Mondays will be coming soon….

Well that’s all for now dolls… Stay tuned tomorrow for my full complexion review of J Cat Beauty products. Until then remember save a spoon for a bit of makeup.



Mani Monday #3 Lights Lacquer

Published December 16, 2019 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Lights Lacquer in the color HBIC

I chose the darkest color of the Kathleen Lights launch. The color is called HBIC, it’s a dusty black with a silver reflect.  I covered almost completely with 1 coat , I added a 2nd coat just to cover some of the streaks. In direct sunlight I could see through the polish just a little bit so the 2nd coat just rounded the polish out some.

Like the other polishes in this line, this polish dried completely in 5 minutes.

My last mani lasted a full week with just a few chips …. mainly because I was opening a ton of boxes I got in the mail with makeup in it.

I’m looking forward to picking up the new Christmas nail launch.

Well that’s it for now dolls…. have a great day and remember to save a spoon for a bit of makeup….



Mani Monday Episode 2

Published December 9, 2019 by aspooniesmakeupbag

y doll hey!!! We made it through the weekend…. bring on the week.  Today I continue my review of the new Kathleen Lights Lights Lacquer nail polish line (retails for $9.50 on th Lights Lacquer website).

20191207_143924 Today I used the color Jefa (that means lady boss). Jefa is a dusty sage green creme polish. For a full review of the polish visit Mani Monday Episode 1 .



As always I use Sally Hansen Complete Care 4 in 1 Moisturizing Treatment ($13.49 at Target) as my base and top coats. This color is gorgeous in person!! It’s dusty enough to be a great Fall/Winter color and just light enough to be a Spring/Summer color.

Jefa went on completely opaque in 1 coat and, just like last weeks mani, completely dried in 5 minutes.

This color is so wardrobe versatile, not like most greens that seem to clash with anything not green. It makes a cute toe polish color too. I was afraid it would be too light of a color for my toes but it has just enough depth that I can pull it off.

Unlike last week’s mani this week I have used a top coat. I want to see if the top coat will protect the edges of my nails from rubbing away when I scratch.

Well that’s all for now dolls… I’ll keep you updated later this week to show you the wear and tear of my nails.


Ta ta for now and as always save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.




Lights Lacquer Mani Follow up

Published December 6, 2019 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Day 1 of my Manicure 

Hello dolls. I thought I’d pop in and do a follow up to my Mani Monday Review on Lights Lacquer , Kathleen Lights’ nail polish line.

This week I really put this manicure to the test. I was dishes, I washed pots and pans, I scrubbed the stove, I even used my nails to pick packages open. I even used my nails to scrub my hair clean. I did my best to beat this polish up. I didn’t even follow up with a top coat.

I wanted to put this polish through the ringer to see just how much it could take and my answer is …. a hell of a lot!


There was absolutely no chipping. None what so ever!!! That’s a vast improvement over all the polishes I own.

Now, with that said I did however have rub off happen to my nails, from scratching my dry skin or my head, from picking at packages with my nails, from scrubbing the stove clean, from washing my hair …. this is normal wear and tear …. considering I did not use a top coat to protect against this.

I am so pleased with this nail polish. Long wearing, fast drying, one coat wonder!

The polish is affordable and high quality. A definite good value.

Stay tunes Monday from another beautiful color in the Lights Lacquer line. This time I will use a top coat to see how long the manicure will last during normal wear and tear.

Thanks for stopping by and as always save a spoon for a bit of makeup.
