Mini ColourPop Haul and Swatches

Published February 1, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

20200201_171428

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

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

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

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

Well that’s all for now dolls, stay tuned tomorrow when I used both palettes to create a purple eye look…. Hope you are having a great day/night and as always, save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Collective Makeup Haul

Published January 25, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! Hope you are having a good night …. or day depending on where you are. I just wanted to pop in really quickly and share another makeup haul….. So let’s get to it.

20200125_193552

BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter – $5.00 on the BH Cosmetics website.

BH Cosmetics was having a sale for my favorite brow highlighter pencil 60% off so I paid $2.00 for each pencil and decided to stock up. At the time of this post they are still having the sale on this item.

20200125_193611

Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil in the color 4.5 – $24.00 at Ulta 

I ran out of this today while I was working on my left brow …. I was able to eek out just enough to finish the left brow (thank goodness I had already done my right brow). I own so many brow pencils but every since I tried this one out when I did the Full Face of Benefit Cosmetics review I haven’t been able to put it down…. so a repurchase was necessary.

NYX Slim Line Lip Liner in the color Bloom – $4.00 at Ulta

I had to pick up a back up of this color. It’s my favorite shade of pink. I used it today in my Smokey Pink look and realized that I have very little of the pencil left so I ran out and picked up a back up.

NYX Shout Loud Satin Lipstick in the color 21st – $8.50 at Ulta

Today I realized I didn’t own any pink lipsticks since my lipstick declutter last year. So While at Ulta today I picked up this hot pink… I know it doesn’t come across as a hot pink on camera, but in person it’s the same color as the lip liner in Bloom. The lipstick is creamy and smells like candy.

Tarte Limited Edition Amazonian Clay 12-HR Blush in the color B-day Bae (a soft mauve matte) – sold alone it’s $29 on their website

This is my favorite formula of blush, the Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes last a long time and buff into the skin beautifully without going patchy. I’m excited to add this shade to my every growing collection of Amazonian Clay blushes.

Tarte Treasures Collector’s Set – regularly $49 on sale for $30 Only available on their website and the palette is limited edition

The first layer of the Treasures Collector’s set. From left to right the colors are Glow Szn (champagne highlight), Always Nice (pink with golden sheen), Bow-Tied (matte soft rose), Drippin’ (golden highlight)….

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.

20200123_113605

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.

20200123_133748

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.

XOXO

 

Tati Beauty Textured Neutrals Vol 1 Shadow Palette Swatches

Published January 21, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

20200121_153038

Hey doll hey!!! I’m so excited to do this post!!! For my anniversary my husband got me the Tati Beauty Textured Neutrals Vol 1 Shadow Palette!!!! Tati Westbrook is one of my all time favorite YouTubers and when I heard she was coming out with a palette I desperately wanted it!!! Tati is such an amazing person, she is honest and genuine. You can find her YouTube channel here -> Tati Westbrook . So I’m coming at you with a swatch post of the palette and I’ve gotta say just from swatching this palette I am so freaking excited to use this palette tomorrow!!!! So let’s jump into the swatches…. side note: There is 6 rows of shadows and each row is the same color in different finishes so rather than every shade having a color name it’s every row having a shade name and each row comes in 4 finishes…. Matte, Sequin, Metallic, and Glitter.

20200121_153053

from left to right the row names are: The black shades are called Memory, The brown shades are called Rutual, the orange shades are called Story, the tan shades are called Soothe, the cream shades are called Aura, and the berry shades are called Poet. 

20200121_153007

The Matte row of shades

the Sequin row of shades

20200121_153158

the Metallic row of shades 

20200121_153224

the Glitter row of shades.

Final Thoughts: You get .18 ounces total in the glitter pans and .72 ounces total for the remaining finishes. The palette retails for $48 on her website. This palette is Cruelty Free and Vegan. What I have learned from just swatching the shadows is that the shadows are finely milled and super pigmented. Every swatch I did was done by swirling my finger 7 times around the pan and in 1 swipe on my arm. Each swatch is done without primer and just on bare skin. The colors blended well on my arm and there was no kickback in the pans. The shadows are so pigmented that I had a bit of trouble wiping the shades from my arm with a baby wipe. The glitters were so super pigmented that the swatches applied completely opaque without having to touch up any of the swatches. As a side note …. the glitter shades were extremely hard to remove, it took 8 baby wipes to get all the glitter off. What I can tell from the swatches is Tati has done glitter the right way. There was no fallout when trying to swatch them and there was no skipping or tugging while applying the swatches. We all know I hate glitter, but I am low key excited to try this glitter formula out … maybe it will make a glitter lover out of me yet!!

Well that’s all for now dolls, tomorrow I will do a look with this palette and give you a full on review so stay tuned. Until then, remember dolls…. save a spoon for a bit of makeup.

XOXO
