3rd Beauty Haul of July 2020

Published July 10, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. Not feeling the best today have a wicked headache and no energy.

I just received my order from BECCA Cosmetics. So I thought I’d haul it before I test the products out. So let’s get started ….

*Reminder: All swatches are done on bare skin with no primer and in 1 go, The pictures on the left are done without flash and the ones on the right are done with flash*

BECCA Skin Love Weightless Blur Foundation $44 (but on sale for $26.40) on their website for 1.23 fluid ounces of product. It comes in 24 shades with 14 shades for deeper skin tones and I have it in the shade Shell (light beige with neutral undertones). It’s billed as a moisturizing, light weight, medium-coverage foundation with a velvety, natural finish for healthy looking skin that lasts for 24 hours of wear. It claims to have pore-blurring pigments.

What I learned swatching this foundation was that it is that this foundation is hydrating and super pigmented. It’s billed as a medium coverage foundation I would say it’s light full coverage. I left the swatch on for 5 minutes to test if it will oxidize and it did not. It does not set down all the way, however it does set down enough that you can get away without setting it with powder.

BECCA Aqua Luminous Perfecting Concealer $32 (but on sale for $19.20) on their website for .18 fluid ounces of product. It comes in 9 shades with 4 shades for deeper skin and I have it in the shade Porcelain (very fair with slightly pink undertones). It’s billed as a water-infused, crease-proof concealer that delivers weightless light-to-medium coverage that is blurring and has a soft luminosity. It claims to have flexible color pigments that move with your skin for seamless coverage. It claims to never crease, cake, or settle into lines.

What I learned from the swatch is that this is a very light weight concealer with light medium coverage that can be built up to full medium coverage. It’s creamy and has just enough pigment to not be over the top. This is the kind of concealer you can wear on no makeup or low makeup days without it looking strange. I left the swatch on for 5 minutes to test to see if it would oxidize … it does not however it does set down almost all the way so you may not have to set it with powder if you want to keep the luminosity that it has.

BECCA Ever-Matte Shine Proof Foundation (this is a free sample with purchase) full sized will run you $42 on their website for 1.34 fluid ounces of product. It comes in 20 shades with 11 shades for deeper skin tones and I was gifted the shade Cashmere (neutral beige, neutral undertones). It’s billed as a medium coverage foundation that absorbs excess oil and blurs the look of imperfections for a shine-free matte finish.

What I learned from this swatch is that this is a pretty thick foundation. A little goes a long way. It’s a high pigment foundation that is billed as a medium coverage foundation, however I think it looks full coverage from this swatch. I left it on for 5 minutes and it did not oxidize. It does not set down so a setting powder is needed.

BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector $32 on their website for .16 ounces of product. It comes in 2 shades (light/medium and medium/deep) I purchased it in the light/medium shade. It’s billed as a full-coverage colour corrector that uses light to brighten dark under eye. It claims to nourish the under eyes and to have backlight technology that is infused with peach and apricot toned color correctors with light-reflecting illuminators that deflect light away from dark circles.

What I learned from this swatch is that this is a super creamy formula and a very little goes a very long way. It’s very brightening and has a great slip to it I left it on for 5 minutes and it did not oxidize, it also did not set down at all (remained as creamy as it was 5 minutes prior).

BECCA Ignite Liquified Light Highlighter (this is a free sample with purchase) full sized will run you $38 on their website for 1.52 fluid ounces of product. It comes in 5 shades and I have it in the shade Passion (pale incandescent pearl that reflects gold). It’s billed as a liquid highlighter for face and body that gives skin an all over pearlized glow that is transfer and water resistant and has multi-dimensional micro-pearls suspended in a crystal-gel formula to give the skin a pearlized glow.

What I learned from this swatch is that a very little goes a very long way. It’s super reflective and very creamy and super pigmented. I left it on for 2 full minutes and the formula dried down fully. I did need a bit of soap to remove it so I do believe the water resistant claim.

BECCA Mineral Blush $32 on their website for .2 ounces of product.

It comes in 7 shades (for this formula) and I purchased it in the shade Song Bird (peachy pink). It’s billed as a mineral blush that is highly pigmented, builds and blends effortlessly to give cheeks a healthy, natural flush.

What I learned from this swatch is that this is an incredibly finely milled blush. It’s super pigmented (this swatch was made with just 1 small swipe of the blush) and super smooth. It’s a satin finished blush that is so pretty!!!

BECCA Sunlit Bronzer $38 on their website for .25 ounces of product

It comes in 5 shades with 3 of those shades being deep enough for deep skin and I purchased the shade Ipanema Sun (medium auburn brown). It’s billed as an ultra-creamy bronzer that builds a warm, sun-kissed glow on any skin with a ultra buttery formula that is buildable and has a neutral under tone.

What I learned from this swatch is that it’s super pigmented and a light hand is best with this product. It’s a satin finish bronzer that is finely milled and super smooth. I love the fact that it’s a red based bronzer instead of the classic orange based bronzers that I have in my collection.

BECCA Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder (this was a free gift with purchase) the full sized will run you $39 on their website for .35 ounces of product. It comes in 2 shades original (a sheer, creamy beige) and golden bronze (a soft, warm tan) I was gifted the original shade. It’s billed as a weightless setting powder that refreshes and cools the skin with all-day moisture and blurs the look of pores and fine lines. It claims to be formulated with 50% water that sets makeup while refreshing and cooling skin on contact with a mist like sensation.

What I learned from this swatch is that this powder is finely milled and super smooth. I didn’t notice and cooling of mist like sensation with this swatch … but perhaps it’s just because it’s such a small swatch.

BECCA Glow Gloss (these were a gift with purchase) $22 for .18 fluid ounces on their website

It comes in 10 shades, of which I was gifted the mini’s of Rose Gold (left – copper rose with soft gold pearl) and Champagne Creme (right – soft gold with high-impact pink & gold pearls). It’s billed as a lip formula with the shine of a gloss, pigment of a liquid lipstick and nourishing benefits of a balm. It claims to be nourishing, conditioning, have plumping peptides, and a high shine finish.

What I learned from this swatch is that these are super creamy lip glosses … not at all sticky. They feel super hydrating and have fine mica pigments in them. They smell like mint and I tested it on my lips to see if it “plumps” like the claims state. It felt cooling on the lips but did not plump my lips.

BECCA Ultimate Lipstick Love $24 on their website for .12 ounces of product.

It comes in 30 shades and I purchased the shade Tulip (warm pinky coral). It’s billed as an instantly moisturizing lipstick for pure colour in one swipe, infused with hyaluronic acid to hydrate. It claims to be long-wearing and packed with pure color pigments in a light reflecting oil that delivers a comfortable 8 hour wear.

What I learned from this swatch is that this is a really creamy and pigmented lipstick. It has the same type of scent that MAC lipsticks have. This is a satin finished product that has got great slip with no stickiness.

And finally …. my last product in this haul is …..

BECCA Lush Lip Colour Balm $22 (on sale for $13.20) on their website for .10 ounces of product.

It comes in 8 shades and I purchased it in the shade Café Au Lait (peachy beige). It’s billed as a hydrating, tinted lip balm that nourishes and smooths with sheer, satiny-soft colour.

What I learned from this swatch is that this is a super emollient lip balm. It’s got more pigment to it than I thought it would have and it’s not sticky at all. It was a beautiful slip to it.

Well…. That’s all for this haul dolls. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits and health.

I’ll be using almost all of these products in today’s Face of the Day …. stay tuned for my review in Final Thoughts….

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

THE DREAM PALETTE CHALLENGE DAY 6 : DREAM Mono-Chromatic PALETTE

Published July 10, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag
This is a challenge that was created by newlipstickclub1 , shimmershanny , and pan.o.ramics on Instagram.

Day 1: Dream Mono-Chromatic Palette: Pick 9 shades all based on your favorite color to create your own mini mono-chromatic palette

  • As always the picture on the left will be the picture with no flash and the one on the right will be the one with flash …. All swatches are done on bare skin with no primer and in 1 pass.

The color story I chose for my Monochromatic palette is PURPLE of course!!! Not only is it my favorite color on the planet, it’s also the official color of Spoonie Awareness. So let’s take a look at what my dream mono-chromatic palette would look like.

The shade from left to right are as follows:

Earthshine (pinky lavender with a blue duo-chrome flip – metallic) from the It’s My Pleasure Palette from ColourPop $12 on their website. This is such a pretty purpler, pinky, blue shifting eye shadow that is perfect for the inner corner or just tapped over the middle 1/3 of the mobile lid.

Mr. Sandman (icy rose with a silver sheen – metallic) from the It’s My Pleasure Palette from ColourPop $12 on their website. This shade reminds me a little of MAC’s Blue Brown pigment in the way that it shifts. I love this color paired with a mossy green metallic.

Tropicana (pastel lilac – matte) from the ELF Retro Paradise Palette $14 on their website. This is a great little powdery lilac shade that’s great for the mobile lid but can also be used as a brow line highlight for a more avant garde look.

Neutrino (purple with a blue sheen – metallic) a ColourPop Single Pan Eyeshadow $4.50 on their website. I have said so much already about this shade … so I will simply say …. when ever I have a chance to add this shade to a look …. I do because I just simply love it.

Do or Dough (bright lavender with blue duo-chrome flip – metallic) from the It’s My Pleasure Palette from ColourPop $12 on their website. This one has so much dimension to it that it’s just the perfect companion to any purple look , be it smokey, subtle, or glam.

Guilt Trip (smoky purple – shimmer) from the Urban Decay Born to Run Palette $49 at Sephora. I don’t reach for this one as much as I reach for some of my other purple shadows but every time I do I love the look … this is my most subtle purple shadow I own … it’s a bit smokey…. a bit sultry.

Chick Lit (deep amethyst – metallic) from the It’s My Pleasure Palette from ColourPop $12 on their website. This shade is just perfection … simply put …. PERFECTION.

Candace (true berry based purple – matte) from the Warrior III Palette from Juvia’s Place $20 on their website. I love to use this shade as a base for my less punchy purple shades … it really punches up the purple in any shade.

and finally Sleeper (eggplant – matte) a ColourPop Single Pan Eyeshadow $4.50 on their website. I use this one to deepen my outer v and outer 1/3 of the mobile lid. I also use it to deepen the lower lash line too.

Well … there you have it dolls … my dream 9 pan mono-chrome palette … what would be your dream 9 pan mono-chrome palette?

I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good health and spirits.

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

XOXO, Nita

THE DREAM PALETTE CHALLENGE DAY 3: Dream Neutral Palette

Published July 7, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? great I hope.

I know it’s been a week since I last posted for this challenge … but better late than never.

This is a challenge that was created by newlipstickclub1 , shimmershanny , and pan.o.ramics on Instagram.

Day 3: Dream Neutral Palette: Pick 9 neutral shades from any of your palettes to create your own mini neautrals palette

  • As always the picture on the left will be the picture with no flash and the one on the right will be the one with flash …. All swatches are done on bare skin with no primer and in 1 pass.

The shades for my dream mini neutrals palette would be:

Creme (a basic vanilla – matte) from the ELF The New Classics Palette $14 on their site. This shade is perfect for a brow bone highlight and as a matte inner corner highlight.

Riff (nude brown – matte) from the Urban Decay Born to Run Palette $49 at Ulta and Sephora. This is just the perfect nude transition shade. It’s just the right under tone of warmth without being too warm.

Maple (warm caramel brown – matte) from the Too Face Born This Way The Natural Nudes Palette $45 at Ulta and Sephora. This shade is similar to Riff but has a bit more yellow in the tone. It’s such a pretty shadow to just pop in the crease for some added dimension on those no makeup makeup days.

Sea Stars (medium yellow brown – matte) a ColourPop Single Pressed Powder Shadow $4.50 on their website. This is my go to shade when I just want an all over wash of color. I also love to use it to really smoke out the lower lash line when I do drop shadows.

Kano (true caramel – matte ) from the Warrior Palette by Juvia’s Place $20 on their website. I use Kano a ton… not just for eye shadow… I also use it to warm up the highest points of my face when I want a subtle bronzed look.

Kufuru (syrup brown – matte) from the Warrior II Palette by Juvia’s Place $20 on their website. I freaking love this shadow! It’s my favorite way to deepen up the outer v and to add depth to the lower lash line.

Over It (light warm coral – metallic) a ColourPop Single Pressed Powder Shadow (discontinued). This is the perfect coral shade to pair with a neutral palette. It’s just the right pigmentation and right shade of coral to pair well with a smokey neutral look and still work well with a barely their neutral look.

The 4th shade of the 1st row (champagne – metallic) of the Nubian Palette by Juvia’s Place $20 on their website. This adds such a stunning pop of light to any neutral look. It’s also a great inner corner highlight shade.

and finally Kenya (chocolate brown – matte) from the Nubian 2 Palette from Juvia’s Place $20 on their website. This is my go to shadow to create a smokey neutral look with and also to add depth to the very outer parts of the eye.

There you have it dolls. My perfect dream mini neutral palette. What shades would be in your 9 pan dream neutral palette?

I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits and good health.

Remember … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

My Ultimate Dream Matte Palette (Revised)

Published June 29, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I’m very low on energy the past few days. Turns out my Hashimoto Syndrome is acting up and my Thyroid and Kidney functions are really low. The doctor changed my meds again to try and help my Thyroid and Kidneys start to improve but until the meds start to work I’ll be low on energy, more than when it’s just the Fibromyalgia giving me trouble, so I probably wont be able to do my makeup for a few more days or so. With that said I came across this really cool makeup challenge from fellow word presser Katie of KatieEmma Beauty , who by the way is an amazing beauty blogger! Her blog is just chalk full of amazing reads…. seriously you should go check her out. She found this challenge on Instagram and the original creators of this challenge are newlipstickclub1 , shimmershanny , and pan.o.ramics .

This is an 8 day challenge that centers on you creating your dream palette of the day …. the day assignments are:

Day 1: Dream Matte Palette
Day 2: Dream Shimmer Palette
Day 3: Dream Nude Palette
Day 4: Dream Color Palette
Day 5: Dream Face Palette (using eyeshadow only)
Day 6: Dream Monochromatic Palette
Day 7: Dream Eyeshadow Palette
Day 8: Dream Eyeshadow Palette (using non-eyeshadow)

So let’s start with Day 1: My Dream Matte Palette….

  • PLEASE NOTE: I was contacted by newlipstickclub1 and she actually gave me the rules for this challenge … so I have decided to rename this post and start the challenge over.

Anyone who knows me knows I love bigger palettes and I also love matte shadows, they are my all time favorite shadows so for me to have my ultimate dream matte palette it would have to be a huge palette.

I put together my dream palette on Friday but had a hard time whittling it down to a smaller size …. by Sunday night I was able to whittle it down to 69 shades…. but this is the smallest I am willing to go with my dream palette… ultimately I would probably add 1 more shade to round it out to an even number but really these 69 shades are my ultimate dream palette to own, I really could not have a dream palette without all these shades in the palette….

*REMEMBER, when I do swatches , I always do my swatches on clean bare skin with no primer and in 1 pass…. also I always take a picture of the swatches with and without flash so that you can get a true sense of the colors …. the pictures without flash will be on the left and the ones with flash will be on the right or the ones with no flash will be on top and the ones with flash will be on the bottom*

My first row of my dream mattes palette would be:

My third row of my dream mattes palette would be:

Amber (burnt orange from the ColourPop Brown Sugar palette), Soothe Matte (camel from the Tati Beauty Textured Neutrals Vol 1 palette), Maple (yellow based tannish brown from the Too Faced Born This Way The Natural Nudes Eye Shadow palette ), Riff (deep camel from the Urban Decay Born to Run palette), Wake Up Call (warm sand ColourPop single shadow), Bel Air (cool taupe ColourPop sungle shadow), Sea Stars (medium yellow brown ColourPop single shadow), Good Thing (warm chestnut brown ColourPop single shadow), Extra Curricular (mid toned orange tan ColourPop Double Entendre palette), Saucy (yellow based tan from the ELF Opposites Attack palette), and the 6th shade of the Juvia’s Place the Nudes palette (deep yellow camel).

My fourth row of my dream mattes palette would be:

the 5th shade of the Juvia’s Place the Chocolates palette (mustard yellow), Yodit (dark mustard brown from the Juvia’s Place Warrior II palette), Kana (rosy dove grey from the Juvia’s Place Warrior II palette), Sandy Bum (light tones natural brown from the ELF Retro Paradise palette), Mojave Mami (mid toned sand brown from the ELF Earth and Ocean palette), Feathered (rich chocolate brown ColourPop single shadow), Finesse (deep mahogany ColourPop single shadow), Choc (reddish brown from the ColourPop Brown Sugar palette), Teddy Bare (warm mid toned brown from the ColourPop Double Entendre palette), and the 4th shade of the Juvia’s Place the Chocolates palette (rich warm red brown).

My fifth row of my dream mattes palette would be:

the 6th shade of the Juvia’s Place the Corals palette (a reddish brown), Henna (deep cool toned taupe from the ColourPop Brown Sugar palette), the 1st shade of the Juvia’s Place the Chocolates palette (deep chocolate brown), the 3rd shade of the Juvia’s Place the Chocolates palette (grey toned deep cool brown), Cloud 9 (plummy brown ColourPop single shadow), Ms. Brightside (deep red plum from the ColourPop Whatever palette), Bad Guy (true burgundy from the ColourPop Whatever palette), Jamata (deep tan based orange from the Juvia’s Place Warriro II palette), Jezebel (maroon from the Juvia’s Place Nubain II palette), and Sleeper (eggplant ColourPop single shadow).

My sixth row of my dream mattes palette would be:

Kahina (deep maroon from the Juvia’s Place Warrior III palette), Candace (dusty rosy coral from the Juvia’s Place Warrior III palette), Fanti (vibrant purple from the Juvia’s Place Warrior III palette), Easy Going (blue based lilac from the ELF Opposites Attract palette), Gola (vibrant sky blue from the Juvia’s Place Warrior III palette), Oasis (dusty blue grey from the Elf Earth an Ocean palette), Royal (classic royal blue from the ELF Retro Paradise palette), Abyss (deep ocean blue from the ELF Earth and Ocean palette),and Wise (mid toned forest green from the ELF Opposites Attract palette).

There you have it dolls. This would be my ultimate dream all mattes palette. If I had to add 1 more color to the palette to give it an even number of shades I think I would add the shade Memory Matte (carbon black) from the Tati Beauty Textured Neutrals palette so that I had the deepest black available to me for days when the charcoal black aren’t deep enough.

This challenge was fun to do and I thank Katie of KatieEmma Beauty for posting it. I do love doing tags and challenges and you should check out all of her posts for this challenge. She did an amazing job at putting together her dream palettes.

I will not be posting Day 2 until Wednesday so that I can take tomorrow to gather and swatch all of the shade for the next challenge day.

I still have makeup in the mail coming to me the first week in July so I will not be able to haul anything new for the last few days of June. With that said I still have to do my July beauty buys so I may have more than usual haul posts in the month of July.

My eye has healed almost completely there is just the slightest bit of dry skin on the upper lid and just a rough patch on the lower eye lid …. I think by Thursday it should be all better … I’ve been combating the dry and rough skin of that eye with Hyaluronic Acid serum and a bit of my night oil.

Well that’s all for now dolls…. Remember to check out Katie Emma’s blog, she really does have a great one …. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits and health.

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

XOXO, Nita

JKissa x ELF To the Rescue Palette Swatches and Review

Published June 25, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope.

It dawned on me that I never officially showed off my JKissa palette.

Since I’ve had plenty of days to play around with the palette I figured I would also do a mini review of it as well.

The JKissa x ELF To the Rescue Palette $20 at Ulta. It came with a sticker sheet so you could decorate the palette. I love Pitbulls so I chose these stickers to decorate mine.
My palette came with the green shimmer, blue shimmer and purple shimmer shade shattered ( and the deep purple shade also came with just a tiny corner cracked as well) so I used Isopropyl Alcohol to wet those shades and press them back together. In doing so the green and purple shimmer shades names wiped off.

There are 12 matte and 6 shimmer shades in this palette and the total amount of product is .52 ounces making each shadow just under .3 ounces each.

This palette is 100% vegan and cruelty free and is the 2nd collaboration between JKissa and ELF (the first being a 7 pan eye shadow palette, blue liner, and a mascara) and in this second collaboration there is the 18 pan eye shadow palette (which I have in the picture above).

This palette is so fun to play with.

There is a ton of kick back in the pans with this soft pressed palette and more often than not there is also a ton of fallout on the face. I’ve learned t’s best to slowly build up the pigmentation of the shadows in this palette to avoid the fallout.

I have noticed when working with these shades that sometimes the can get a little patchy. Particularly the purple shades, but also the orange and yellow shades can sometimes lift in certain areas of the shade whilst buffing out. Also worth mentioning is that the orange shimmer shade is can be a little tough to build because it’s not as pigmented as the rest of the shimmer shades.

The shades are moderately pigmented, with some of the shades being more pigmented than others.

The shades do buff into each other fairly well but I have noticed they do not work well with other palettes, save for the shimmer shades which work fine with other palettes.

For this palette I would give it a solid A+. simply because of the few little issues with the palette.

Now let’s take a look at the swatches …. remember that as always all swatches are done on bare skin with no primer and in 1 pass.

The picture on the left is with no flash and the one on the right with with flash. The shades from left to right are: Casey, Millie, Yosemite, Peaky, Canolli, and Sadie. These shades are the lighter more brighter versions of the rainbow color scheme.

The picture on the left is with no flash and the one on the right with with flash. The shades from left to right are: Pepper, Zuma, Paloma, Tank, Thatcher, and Pretty Girl. These shades are the darker more deeper shades of the rainbow.

The picture on the left is with no flash and the one on the right with with flash. The shades from left to right are: Strawberry, Tsuki, Firefly, Reagan, Bailey, and Confetti. These are the shimmery slightly metallic shades of the rainbow.

a 6 piece brush set called Furever Eyeshadow Brush Set (which I also purchased but is currently dirty) that retails for for $25 and is sold at Ulta (is sold out on the ELF website) which includes the: J1 (packer brush), J2 (multi tasker), J3 (fluffy blender brush), J4 (small bullet brush), J5 (angled liner brush), and J6 (flat definer brush).

The brush set has a rainbow handle with a purple ferrule. The synthetic bristles are super soft but also firm enough to preform their jobs well.

The brushes do not shed and they are some of the best quality of brushes ELF has put out to date.

My only wish would be that they would have come out with a face brush set too, but since JKissa doesn’t wear foundation I kind of understand why a set wasn’t created.

I give this brush set a solid A+++!!!! This again is the best brush set to date, in my opinion, that ELF has come out with.

and a eye shadow topper duo called Tsuki To My Heart that retails for $12 (at Ulta) for .3 ounces of total product and features the shades I’m Pupset (a bright green) and What a Pitty Smile (opalescent/clear). This was the only product I chose not to purchase simply because I don’t use eye shadow toppers much because they emphasize the texture of my lids.

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

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

What I’ve learned from this is …

  1. I don’t need anymore eyeliners for a while.
  2. I don’t need mascaras probably for the rest of the year.
  3. I have a crap ton of nude and nude-ish lipsticks … time to add some fun colors.
  4. I still have makeup in my collection that just doesn’t wow me…. perhaps it’s time for another declutter of my collection.

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

Remember … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Vol. 9 The Eyeshadow Palettes Part 2

Today we’re diving into my face palettes collection

Benefit Babe on Board *$30 Limited Edition-still available through QVC*

I purchased mine off the Beautylish website.

This is a palette of mini products and you get :

  • Hoola Matte Bronzer (.14 oz): original medium tan with a matte finish
  • Rockabye Powder Blush (.08 oz): warm rose with a natural finish
  • Dandelion Twinkle Powder Highlighter (.05 oz): nude pink with a shimmer finish

This is a super cute palette. Great for travel since it’s a blush, bronzer,and highlight all in one.

Believe Beauty Get Glowing Highlight And Contour Palette $5 only at Dollar General Stores.

This one is in the Light/Medium.

This one reminds me of the Babe on Board Palette… the blushes in both palettes are almost the same tone and the highlights have the same texture.

Again this is a great travel palette and it’s pretty good qaulity.

Rimmel London Kate Sculpting Palette *Discontinued but can be found on Amazon* I have it in the color way Coral Glow.

I purchased this one when I did my full face of Rimmel post.

It’s an OK palette I guess… I’m not wowed by it but I don’t mind using it either. The coral blush is supper pretty, the bronzer and highlighter are a bit lack luster.

California In A Box Bronzer & Blush Palette $14.99 for .5 ounces of product at Ulta.

You get 2 Matte Bronzers , 1 satin and 1 matte blush is a pretty coral shade and 1 champagne highlighter.

This is a pretty good palette.

Makeup Geek Palette I put together The 3 blushes are the same color Spellbound (a salmon coral matte) and the blush is Sunkissed (warm light brown)

these colors are available in the re-brand in square pans.

BH Cosmetics Glowing in Greece 6 Color Blush and Highlighter Palette $16 on their website.

You get 3 blushes and 3 highlighters (all 3 blushes are satin).

This is a great palette!!! I truly enjoy reaching for this one.

Tarte Treasures Collector Set *Was limited edition* This is a complete face palette… has blush bronzer highlighter and eyeshadows.

This palette just doesn’t impress me that much. It’s a pretty color scheme but this is just a lack luster palette … great for a beginner but not my favorite palette of the moment.

Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette Gorgeous, Glowing Beauty $75 on the Beautylish website.

While this palette is pretty and I love Charlotte Tilbury … this palette just isn’t worth $75. I have other lower price point palettes that I can get more versatility out of.

Profusion Eye & Cheek The Artistry Palette $10 on their website.

This Palette has both warm and cool tones and the qaulity is freaking amazing.

This one might be a little on the big side but it’s thin and so still travel friendly.

Well that’s all dolls. Hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits and health.

Remember … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO
