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 ….


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).


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.


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.


Private Society Cosmetics Review

Published December 15, 2019 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey! I’m coming at ya with a product review on the makeup brand called Private Society. I happened to catch their ad on Instagram last week and decided to buy the full face of products to review for you.


Can we talk about this packaging? It is super cute, and I love that they carried the motif of the unicarts to the product packaging too.


I purchased as close to a full face as I could, there were certain things that they do not offer so I just incorporated stuff from my own stock.

Private Society is a cruelty, parabens, sulfates, and GMOS, and gluten free company.  They bill themselves as an exclusive beauty brand  developed by professional make-up artists to deliver limited edition, highest quality beauty products at insider pricing.

When I purchased these products they weren’t having a sale so I paid full price. I’m not mad at that at all… Their prices are comparable to Ulta prices.

So let’s get into the product review ….


Both are in the color Medium

Drops of Perfect Foundation … A+

Private Society offers 2 styles of foundation. A stick foundation and a liquid foundation. I chose the liquid foundation, Drops of Perfection ($30 on sale for $14). It comes in 18 shades, 6 of which are for our deeper skinned beauties. This foundation is a water based foundation that is primer infused. Their website directs you to use just a few drops at a time, something that I did not do. I used 2 pumps of foundation. I noticed that the color was deeper than I normally wear… a fact that was made even more noticeable because I had used too much foundation. The amount of product I used would have covered my face 3 times over. Because I used too much product I ended up having to buff my face for about 5 minutes, wiping my brush off every few passes to get the foundation to blend in seamlessly…. this was user error, not product quality. The color was still just a bit more orange than I would have liked, but with powder over top that corrected itself. This foundation is not a thin foundation but it’s not thick either… it’s somewhere between the two extremes …. I used my flat top foundation brush and noticed that the first couple of passes of the brush left streaks. Now this could be because I used a primer first. I hadn’t noticed that this foundation has primer infused so I used a primer first. Once I had the product buffed into the face and neck it made my face look perfected. This foundation is not a full coverage foundation, I could still see my freckles but my hormonal breakouts were covered completely.  This foundation doesn’t dry down completely but it doesn’t feel sticky at all. I used a loose setting powder because I wanted to mute the color of the foundation just a bit.  The next time I use this foundation I’m going to use a little at a time and I wont have to set it with powder then. I really liked the look of this foundation on my skin and it doesn’t feel like I am wearing anything.  I would give this foundation an A+. I wish there was a neutral undertone option for this one, but I can make the one I have work.

Coveted Concealer … B

Private Society only has 1 concealer option. Coveted Concealer (regularly $22 on sale for $8). It comes in 12 shades, 6 of which are for deeper skin, none of which are neutral undertones, but all are primer infused. This concealer is on the thicker side, not a thick as the Shape Tape from Tarte, but thicker than say NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. This concealer worked well to cover most of my under eye darkness. There is just the smallest amount of darkness under my eye now. What I noticed off the bat was that this concealer clung to a dry patch I have under my right eye, after I powdered and sprayed my face with makeup setting spray that seemed to correct the patchiness of that eye. This concealer doesn’t bunch up into my fine lines, in fact it seems to have concealed my fine lines… the under eye are looks flawless.. I give it a solid B, manly because it does cling to dry patches and there are no neutral toned shades, it’s also thicker than I tend to like. It’s still a solid concealer, I just prefer other formulas more.



Girl Boss Palette

Girl Boss Palette A+++

Private Society offers 5 eye shadow palettes. The one I chose to buy was Girl Boss (regularly $35 on sale for $15). There are 12 shades in the palette. The six mattes are First Class (a true white), CEO (a light terra cotta), Brunch (a true terra cotta), Jetsetter (a coral based red), Money maker (an orange based mid toned brown), and Friyay (a deep grey toned brown). The 6 metallic shades are … Instafamous (a rose gold with pink reflect), Status Symbol ( a amber with silver reflect), Iconic ( a copper with no reflect), Socialite (a pale champagne satin), Hundo (a bright gold with rose reflect), and VIP (a dark brown with copper reflect). The palette came with a descent double ended brush, on one end there is a medium sized fluffy shader brush and on the other end a pencil brush. Right off the bat I knew I would love this palette…. It has the right amount of transition to crease shades and the shadows are finely milled and buttery smooth. The only thing this palette did not have was a cream color to set the primer with…. and yes, this product is also infused with primer. The shades do not pull, do not skip, do not muddle together, and the colors are true to pan (meaning what you see is what you get). Initially I was going to do simple everyday glam look, but once I realized just how pigmented these colors are I had to test the glam factor. This little baby did NOT fail to impress me. Normally with colors this pigmented you are going to have fall out … there was none what so ever …. not even with the metallic shades. Because of how finely milled these shadows are I thought I would get some kick back too … again none what so ever… this palette is great quality for a fraction of what you would pay for other brands like Anastasia Beverly Hills or Urban Decay, and I fell like this palette is much more of better quality than the ones I own by those other two brands. My eye lids were a bit dry today, I forgot to put eye cream on last night, so I expected there to be some skipping or pulling and there wasn’t any at all. The colors blended out so well that I didn’t even need to go over the shadows with a clean brush like I normally do with other eye palettes. I am so blown away by the quality of this palette and will be purchasing another palette soon.


No flash, direct sunlight.


Secret Admire B-

When I first purchased the Secret Admire Palette (regularly $42 on sale for $30) I though it was a blush and highlighter palette…. I was wrong, and feel bummed because I love highlighter and was looking forward to trying theirs. At any rate it’s still a good palette to own. There are 5 matte, 1 satin, and 2 metallic blushes. From left to right and top to bottom … First Kiss is a metallic coral with a silver reflect. Day Dreaming is a peachy coral satin. Rose Petals is a blue based rose pink matte. Pinky Swear is a blue based pink matte. Infatuation is a copper metallic with no reflect. Bashful is a peachy coral matte. Sweet Romance is a orange based bronze coral matte. Coral Crush is a bright true coral matte. I find these blushes to be a little on the chalky side. The one I am wearing went on a little patchy and I spent a few minutes blending the patchiness out. Now, this might be, again, because I used a primer on my face and these products are primer infused, but because they are chalky it might just be because the powder is catching on the other face products I am wearing. The palette has a nice variety but I have other blush palettes, some even cheaper in price, that are better in my opinion.


Lip Service C-

Lip Service lip liners (regularly $16 on sale for $5) are not my favorite formula. They feel a little waxy to me. Now this could be because they have primer in it and I primed my lips with foundation, but I doubt it as I prime my lips with foundation every time I fill in my lips. This lip liner comes in 10 shades., of which I purchased 2. This lip liner skipped and sunk into my lips’ fine lines. I just didn’t like this lip liner as much as I like my NYX Suede Matte lip liners.


Lip Lock A++

Lip Lock matte liquid lipstick (regularly $18 on sale for $6) is a very pigmented matte lipstick that feels like a balm. It is not primer infused like the rest of the line but that’s OK for me since I always prime with foundation anyway. This liquid lipstick feels amazing. It doesn’t dry down all the way like other liquid matte lipsticks. It also doesn’t get tacky with wear either. It feels light weight. There is not scent or taste to this lipstick either. There are 12 sades, of which I purchased 3. Because it doesn’t dry down this lipstick does transfer. This lipstick feels really good on the lips. It does wear down, but it wears down to a lip stain result. I really like this lip product and plan to purchase more.

Final Thoughts ….

I am so happy I came across the ad for this brand! It’s got great quality products with a high end feel. It’s luxury meets great prices. I would give the brand as a whole an A++

There products are limited addition, so I look forward to see what new things they come out with…. Definitely worth a the full price purchase. They are having a sale on their website right now …. you can find them here -> Private Society

Well that’s all for now dolls, thanks for sticking with me , and remember as always ….

Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.


Private Society Face of the Day

Published December 15, 2019 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Happy Sunday dolls. I hope all is well with you today. Today is a high pain day for me. We woke up to cold weather here in Florida and it’s messing with my spoonie bits.


For today’s face of the day I am using new makeup I purchased from Private Society Cosmetics… it’s a brand I never heard of before and happened to see an Instagram ad for. This post will be the face of the day with no final thoughts because I am dedicating a full blog post to the product review.

Base: Private Society does not have primer so I chose to use the one I use every time I am testing a new foundation…. Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer ($54 at Sephora). To conceal I am using the Private Society Coveted Concealer (regularly $22 on sale for $8 on their website) in the color Medium. For foundation today I am using the Private Society Drops of Perfection foundation (regularly $30 on sale for $14 on their website) in the color Medium. They have no face powders so I am using my tried and true Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder ($39 at Ulta) in translucent. Private Society does have a bronzer contour stick, but I don’t like how the face feels with so many cream products so I chose to use my Benefit Hoola Bronzer ($30 at Ulta) to bronze my face today.


Eyes: I primed my eyes with Tarte Shape Tape ($27 at Ulta) in the color Light Medium Honey. I set the Shape Tape with Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Single ($0.99 at Walgreens) in the color Creme Brulee. For today’s eye look I am using the Private Society Girl Boss Palette (regularly $30 on sale for $15 on their website). As my transition color I chose the medium terra cotta color called CEO. As my crease color I chose the medium brown (with an orange undertone) called Money Maker. For my lower lash line I chose the true terra cotta color called Brunch. On my lids I am wearing the copper shimmer called Iconic on the first 2/3 of the lid and then on the last 1/3 of the lid I am wearing the dark brown with copper reflect called VIP. on my out v and out lower lash line I am wearing the deep brown with grey undertone called Friyay. I then used my BH Cosmetics Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on the BH Cosmetics website) on the matte side and I set it with the true white shade called First Class. I highlighted my inner corners with the pale champagne satin called Socialite. I did my brows with the combo of ELF Ultra Precise Brow Pencil ($5 on their website) and Wow Brow ($4 on their website) in the color dark brown. For mascara I chose MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash ($20 at Ulta and MAC).


Cheeks and Lips: I used the Secret Admirer Blush Palette from Private Society (regularly $42 on sale for $30 on their website). I chose the color Sweet Romance (an orange coral) as my blush and I used the color Day Dreaming (a coral with silver reflect) as my highlighter. I lines and filled my lips in with Private Society Lip Service (regularly $16 on sale for $5 on their website) in the color Reign ( a light peachy pink). On my lips I have their liquid lipstick Lip Lock (regularly $18 on sale for $6 on their website) in the color Karma, a mid toned pink with blue undertones, I then over lined my lip with NYX Suede Matte Lip Liner ($4 at Ulta) in the color Whipped Caviar. I originally highlighted my cupid’s bow with Day Dreaming from the Secret Admirer palette and realized it was too pink so I used my foundation brush to take the pink down and used Socialite, the eyeshadow from the Girl Boss palette.


Well that’s all for now dolls… stay tuned for my product review of the Private Society makeup line, up next.

Hope you are having an as pain free as possible day and that your energy is good.

Remember dolls, always save a spoon for a bit of makeup.
