Sultry Eye Face of the Day

Published March 30, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! Hope you are having a great day/night. I’m doing pretty good today. It’s a low pain high energy day for me so that’s an awesome thing. I’ve been loving doing glam looks lately so I decided to do another smokey look. Today I’m wearing Katy Perry Royal Revolution perfume. Let’s jump into today’s Face of the Day ….

Base:                                                                                                                                                         I primed my face using JCat Beauty Prime and Glow Face Illuminator ($7.99 on their website) in the Licorice formula. I also blurred my pores using Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Sephora). For foundation today I am wearing a combo of 5 pumps of Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter ($45 at Sephora) in the shade Dew You? and 7 pumps of Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer ($8.99 at Target) in the shade 03 Light Beige. I lightly color corrected my under eyes using Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate ($12 at Target and on the Pixi Beauty website) in the shade Brightening Peach. I used 3 dots under each eye of Too Faced Born This Way Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer ($29 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Vanilla. I set my full face with Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Setting Powder ($33 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Translucent. I warmed up my face using MAC Bronzing Powder ($30 at MAC) in the shade Matte Bronzer. For touch up powder today I am using Catrice Prime and Fine Mattifying Waterproof Powder ($7.49 at Ulta) in the shade transparent.

Eyes:                                                                                                                                                         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 and today I chose not to set the base. For today’s eye look I used the Born This Way The Natural Nudes Palette ($45 at Ulta and Sephora). For my transition shade I used the color Maple (warm caramel brown matte). For my crease I used the shade Cocoa (medium chocolate brown matte). I deepened the crease, outer v, and outer 1/3 of my mobile lid using the shade Truffle (deep rich brown matte). On the remaining 2/3 of my mobile lid I used the shade Shimmering Pearl (gold with a pink shift soft metallic) and then went back over the middle 1/3 using the shade Rose Gold (rose gold soft metallic) to blend the inner and outer 1/3 together. For my lower lash line I created a drop shadow using more of the shade Cocoa. I deepened the lower lash line using more of the shade Truffle and then buffed out the whole lash line using more of the shade Maple. I highlighted the inner corners using the shade Glistening Snow (white with gold shift soft metallic). I tight lined the upper and lower waterlines using Pixi by Petra Endless Silky Eye Pen ($12 at Target) in the shade Black Caviar (deep brown). I set my brows using Maybelline Great Lash Mascara ($6.99 at Ulta but I purchased mine from Amazon) in clear and then filled in my brows using Milani Stay Put Brow Color ($8.49 at Ulta) in the shade 05 Dark Brown. I carved out my brow line using the BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte sides and set the brow line using the shade Swan (eggshell matte). I popped on a pair of Profusion Beauty 3D Faux Mink Lashes ($7 for pack of 5 on their website) in the style Big Tease and coated my upper and lower lashes with L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara ($8.99 at Ulta).

Cheeks and Lips:                                                                                                                               For blush I am using JCat Beauty BlushMellow ($4.99 on their website) in the shade Tutti Fluffy (a bright coral matte). I highlighted my Cupid’s Bow, tops of the cheeks, bridge of the nose, center of my chin, and high points of the brows using the Rachh Loves & Pixi Beauty The Layers Highlighting Palette ($24 at Target) in the shade Lace (a pink iwht gold flip). I lined and filled in my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade Brink (terracotta rose) and topped off my lips using ColourPop Lippie Stix ($7 on their website) in the shade Slacker (soft salmon creme).

Final Thoughts:                                                                                                                                   So I’ve been loving this blush color lately… it’s just the perfect coral pink for a flush of color. I’ve also been doing my blush placement a bit different lately. Instead of placing my blush directly on my  cheeks I take the blush a bit higher on the cheek bones. I saw this on a Makeup Forever master class video and noticed that it gives a more youthful look to the face.

I’ve also been loving this lip combo too… It’s very flattering and goes with almost any eye look.

Well that’s all for now dolls…. I hope and pray you are healthy, safe, and in good spirits. Remember ….. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Published March 22, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I’m still not 100% well yet, but I’m doing better than I have been. I slept in till 9:30 Am today. I still have a sore throat, runny nose, and a cough but my body is starting to feel better and I no longer have the shakes. I’m still feeling pretty weak and so I decided just to do a simple eye look today…. Let’s jump into today’s scent and Face of the Day ….

20200322_152756

Juicy Couture Parfum. I purchased mine at Ulta for $96 for 3.4 Fluid Ounces. This is one of my husband’s favorite perfumes on me. The scent notes are:  watermelon, mandarin orange, passion fruit, green apple, green leaves, hyacinth, marigold lily, tuberose, rose hip, precious woods, patchouli, caramel, vanilla and crème brûlée. This is another really great everyday casual dress perfume. The scent stays around for about 6 to 8 hours of wear and is sweet but not over the top sweet. You can really pick up on the caramel in this scent. I love this one for just daily use but i have been known to wear it on date night too because hubby loves it so much.

Base:                                                                                                                                                         I primed my face using I Heart Revolution Coconut Dream Hydrating Primer ($8 at Ulta). I also used a tad bit of Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Ulta) around my nose and outer parts of my cheeks to blur my pores. My foundation today is a combo of 2 pumps of Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter ($45 at Sephora) in the shade Dew You? and 2 scoops of The Balm Even Steven Whipped Foundation ($22 on their website) in the shade Light/Medium. I lightly color corrected my under eyes using Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate ($12 at Target and on the Pixi Beauty website) in the shade Brightening Peach.

For today’s eye look I used a few shades from The Balm Meet Matt(e) Adore and Meet Matt(e) Nude palettes (both palettes were limited edition and are now discontinued, however you can still find them on Amazon and Bridette’s Boutique . I started my eyes using the Adore palette…. For my first transition shade I used the shade Matt Munoz (a pastel coral peach matte). For my second transition shade I used the shade Matt Bernard (a light camel matte). For my crease shade I chose the shade Matt Jones (a mustard toned brown matte). I then switched to the Nude palette and deepened my crease and the outer 1/3 of my mobile lid using the shade Matt Rosen (a mid toned chocolate brown with a slight red undertone matte). On the remaining 2/3 of my mobile lid I used  L’Oreal Infallible 24-HR Eye Shadow ($9.99 on their website) in the shade 892 Amber Rush (rose gold with a copper shift). For my lower lash line I used more of the shade Matt Bernard (a light camel matte) and just swept it along the lower lash line not blowing it out too far. I then went in with more of the shade Matt Rosen (a mid toned chocolate brown with a slight red undertone matte) to deepen the lash line. I lined my lower waterlines using BH Cosmetics Power Pencil ($8 at Ulta and on their website) in the shade Beige. I highlighted my inner corners using Hikari Cosmetics Creme Pigment ($15 on their website) in the shade Honeydew (icy pink with silver flip).  I set my brows using Maybelline Great Lash Mascara ($6.99 at Ulta but I purchased mine from Amazon) in clear and then filled in my brows using Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil ($24 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade 4.5 and then I carved out my brow line using the BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the shimmer side and set the brow line using the shade Matt Malloy (pure white matte) from the Nude palette. I popped on a pair Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes ($12 for 5 pairs at Ulta) in the style Flirty and coated my upper and lower lashes with L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara ($8.99 at Ulta).

I highlighted my Cupid’s Bow, tops of the cheeks, bridge of the nose, center of my chin, and high points of the brows using Benefit Boxed Highlighter ($30 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Cookie (a pale yellow champagne with a slight silver reflect).

It means more to me than you will ever know. I’m just a nerdy girl with an obsession for makeup who just simply loves to share it with the world. I’m too self conscious to have my own YouTube channel… and at 43 I really don’t know that I would be able to make my way through YouTube… so I blog …. and you read it …. and that is such an amazing thing for me. Your kind words and just the very thought that you have taken time… valuable time… out of your day to just pop in and see what I have been up to means the world to me. So thank you very much and I hope that you will know that I am here for you if ever you just need a friendly ear to lean in.

Well that’s all dolls. I hope you are in good health, in great spirits, and that you have a great rest of your day/night. Remember save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Glam Cut Crease Face of the Day

Published March 18, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I am feeling so much better today. My throat is still very sore and I still feel very weak, but the rest of my flu symptoms are dissipating. I have a moderate pain level today, around a level 6 …. but for me that is my normal baseline…. I wanted to do a glam look today so I decided to do a tricolor cut crease. So let’s jump into today’s scent and Face of the Day….

20200318_154424

Armani Code. This is the first luxury scent I ever purchased. I purchased it back in either 2006 or 2007 when it first came out. I purchased it at Ulta for I believe $70 for 1.7 fluid ounce. The scent notes are: Bitter Orange, Sweet Italian Orange, Tunisian Orange Blossom Absolute, Jasmine Sambac, Ginger,Seringa Flower, Lavender, Honey, Sandalwood, and Vanilla. This is such a multi faceted scent. It isn’t overly feminine…. in my opinion this is a unisex scent…. even though there is a male version of this scent offered. It’s very clean and crisp and unassuming. It’s a great everyday work appropriate scent. I’ve been through maybe 4 bottles of this scent and will always continue to repurchase it.

Base:                                                                                                                                                         I primed my face using Believe Beauty Pretty and Primed Hydrating Primer ($5 at Dollar General). My foundation today is a combo of 1 squeeze of Pixi by Petra Flawless Beauty Primer Hydrating Glow Primer ($22 at Target and on the Pixi Beauty website) and 1 glob of Wet n Wild Photofocus Dewy Foundation ($6.49 at Ulta) in the shade Soft Beige.

For my transition shade I used the color Milk Chocolate (muted brown matte). To deepen the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid and the crease I used the shade Semi-Sweet (medium brown matte). I went in at the very top of the transition shade and used a touch of the shade Salted Caramel (soft fawn matte) to add a bit more dimension. I used more of the P.Louise Base to cut my creases and then used the shade Marzipan (rose gold metallic) on the inner 2/3 of my mobile lid. I then went in with the shade Amaretto (deep pinky bronze metallic) and placed that on the outer edge of the cut crease. I then went in with the shade Creme Brulee (antique gold metallic) and placed that in the middle of the cut crease to blend the inner and outer colors together. I then went in with the shade Cherry Cordial (deep plum brown matte with a hint of  purple sparkle) and placed that on the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid and outer v. For the lower lash line I used more of the shade Salted Caramel to create a drop shadow and then deepened the lash line using more of the shade Cherry Cordial. To highlight the inner corners I used the shade Champagne Truffle (ballet slipper pink metallic). I lined my lower waterlines using ColourPop BFF Creme Gel Liner ($6 on their website) in the shade Get Paid (a rose gold metallic).

Today I highlighted the tops of my cheeks, bridge of the nose, Cupid’s Bow, and high points of the brow using Revolution Beauty Highlighter Reloaded () in the shade Dare to Divulge. I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil (no longer sold by itself… can be found in the Lippie Pencil Vault) in the shade Oh Sis (smoked paprika) and I filled in the lips using BH Cosmetics and It’s My Raye Raye Lipstick (is limited edition and no longer available) in the color Rosy Raye (a beautiful mid toned rose red matte).

The P.Louise Base is some amazing stuff!!! It made doing my cut creases a breeze. I placed an order for a back up because I can already tell that I am not going to be able to put this primer down.

Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope you have a great rest of your day/night, that you are safe and healthy, and that you are in good spirits. Remember dolls… Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Soft Flirty Eye Face of the Day

Published March 17, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!! How’s your day/night going? Mine is OK. I still have Flu symptoms and my throat is on fire right now. I did go to get the Covid-19 testing done today. That was an experience. First of all I was not permitted to leave my car. I had to wait for the nurse to come outside and attend to me car side. She was covered head to toe in disposable hospital  gear and was double masked. She was polite and explained the process to me. Basically they take a big flat looking Q-Tip and put it all the way up my nose. This was not a pleasant feeling…. but it was over in a matter of a few seconds. Now all I have to do is wait till Friday and my doctor will call me with the results. Until then, even thought I know all I have is the Flu, I am on quarantine and can not leave my home or have anyone come over and my family is also on lock down. Hopefully I start to feel better soon so I can clean the house and rearrange the furniture (I do this every Spring). Well that’s enough of that… Let’s jump into the scent and Face of the Day ….

Gucci Bamboo. This is my top of the top, cream of the crop, nothing better than it FAVORITE scent! I purchased mine at Sephora for $95 for 1.6 fluid ounces and have repurchased this 3 times in the past 2 years. The scent notes are: Bergamot, Orange Blossoms, Casablanca Lily, Ylang-Ylang, Sandalwood, Amber, and Tahitian Vanilla.  The first year I purchased this one I could not stop using it! I am so in love with this scent. This is a soft heady scent that pairs nicely with jeans and a cute blouse just as easily as it pairs with more dressier outfit. This will definitely be a repurchase for me time and time again.

20200317_145336

Base:                                                                                                                                                         I primed my face using Catrice Cosmetics Prime and Fine Poreless Blur Primer ($7.99 at Ulta).My foundation today is a combo of 2 pumps Catrice Cosmetics Light Correcting Serum Primer ($10.99 at Ulta) in the shade Candlelight, 3 pumps of the Physicians Formula Spotlight Illuminating Primer ($14.39 at Walgreens) in the shade Glow, and 3 droppers of Cover FX Custom Cover Drops ($29 at Ulta) in the shade G Medium 1.

For my transition shade I used the 5th shade of the 4th row (a light dusty mauve matte). My second transition shade is the 4th color of the 3rd row (a mid toned camel brown matte). I deepened my crease and outer 1/3 of the mobile lid using the 3rd shade of the 3rd row (a mid toned chocolate brown matte). On the inner 2/3 of the mobile lid I used Hikari Cosmetics Cream Pigment ($15 on their website)  in the shade Honeydew (icy pink with silver and lavender reflect) and then I went back over the middle 1/3 of the mobile lid with the 4th shade of the 1st row (a red based terracotta matte). I created a drop shadow on the lower lash line using more of the 4th shade of the 1st row (a red based terracotta matte) and then deepened my lower lash line using more of the 3rd shade of the 3rd row (a mid toned chocolate brown matte). I set my brows using Maybelline Great Lash Mascara ($6.99 at Ulta but I purchased mine from Amazon) in clear and then filled in my brows using Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil ($24 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade 4.5 and then I carved out my brow line using the BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte side and set the brow line using the 1st shade of the 1st row (a creamy vanilla matte).  I highlighted the inner corners using Urban Decay Single Shadow ($20 at Ulta) in the shade Midnight Cowboy (pink champagne with a silver reflect).  I lined my lower waterlines using  Charlotte Tilbury  Eye Powder Pencil ($22 at Sephora) in the shade The Classic (a mid toned brown).

I truly understand what all the hype is about!!! This base is amazing! First of all I only needed a pea sized amount for both lids. Secondly it held my shadows perfectly and because of how light the base is the shades popped really well. Thirdly I used some more of the base to clean up my mobile lid before putting down the shimmering shades and because the base remains tacky the shimmer shadow set down over the base very well and did not cause any fallout. I was truly impressed with this product and do see myself repurchasing it when I run out.

Well that’s all for now dolls. Please stay safe. I hope and pray that you have a great rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits. Remember… Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

February 20 2020 Makeup Haul

Published February 20, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

20200220_174905

Hey doll hey!!! Hope you day/night is going good. I’m coming to you with another makeup haul. 1 of the things that I ordered didn’t come in so I emailed ColourPop about the Creme Gel Colour in the shade Exit (white) and am currently waiting for someone to get back to me about the missing product. Before I jump into this haul I wanted to let you know all swatches are done on a bare arm with no primer and with only 1 swipe. So let’s jump into the haul …..

20200220_174918

Real Techniques I purchased all 3 at Ulta : from left to right : Setting Brush $7.99 and the Instapop Eye Duo $9.99 it come with the Base Shadow Brush and the Deluxe Crease Brush.

20200220_174935

I also purchased this at Ulta: The BH Cosmetics Crystal Quartz 12 Piece Brush Set with Cosmetic Bag $29.99 this set includes : Deluxe Powder Brush, Large Rounded Bronzing Brush, Rounded Buffing Brush, Flat Contour Brush, Large Blending Brush, Tapered Blending Brush, Domed Blending Brush, Buffing Blending Brush, Buffing Blending Brush, Eye Shader Brush, Pencil Brush, Flat Concealer Brush, and Angled Brow Brush 

20200220_175010

This is the Cosmetics Bag that I received with the brush set it’s a holographic bag, super cute.

20200220_175041

I also purchased this eye palette and loose powder at Ulta – the mascara was a free gift with purchase.

Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Loose Setting Powder : $33 for .56 ounces of product in the shade Translucent. It’s a very finely milled powder with a slight sheen…. this will make a beautiful finishing powder.

20200220_175137

Too Faced Born This Way The Natural Nudes Eyeshadow Palette $45. It has 8 matte shades and 8 shimmer shades and you get .48 total ounces of product.

The picture on the left is without flash and the picture on the right is with flash. These are all 8 of the matte shades: from left to right : Swan, Seashell, Nude, Petal, Warm Rose, Maple, Cocoa, and Truffle. These mattes feel buttery but the pan feels stiff, like it’s tight packed into the pans, but the shades seem to blend out well.

The picture on the left is without flash and the picture on the right is with flash. These are all 8 of the shimmer shades: from left to right : Glistening Snow, Shimmering Pearl, Sparkling Sand, Rose Gold, Sparkling Rum, Golden Light, Sugared Chestnut, and Sparkling Sable. Some of the shimmer shades are stiffer than others. Some are creamier than others as well, with that said these shades are pigmented and glided on smoothly without skipping.

I purchased all these products at Ulta: From top to bottom and left to right: Prime and Fine Poreless Blur Primer $7.99 for 1.05 fluid ounces , Light Correcting Serum Primer in the shade Candle Light $10.99 for .47 fluid ounces, HD Liquid Coverage Foundation in the shade 030 Sand Beige $10.99 for 1.5 fluid ounces, Prime & Fine Waterproof Mattifying Powder in the shade Translucent $7.49 for .32 ounces, Liquid Camouflage Concealer in the shade 005 Light Natural $5.99 for .17 fluid ounces, California In A Box Bronzer & Blush Palette $14.99 for .5 total ounces, and Basic Bae Eyeshadow Palette $14.99 for .44 ounces of product.

Catrice Prime & Fine Waterproof Mattifying Powder in the shade Translucent $7.49 for .32 ounces. This powder is super finely milled and very buttery. It blurred every fine line on my hand and has a soft focus glow to it.

Catrice Prime and Fine Poreless Blur Primer $7.99 for 1.05 fluid ounces. This is a smooth primer that has a slight sheen to it. This primer has no scent.

Catrice Light Correcting Serum Primer in the shade Candle Light $10.99 for .47 fluid ounces. This is the softest sheen I have every tried for a shimmery primer. This might be due to the fact that it’s a serum or perhaps I need more than 1/2 a drop to get the sheen to show up. There is no scent to this primer and it’s a smooth primer.

Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Foundation in the shade 030 Sand Beige $10.99 for 1.5 fluid ounces. This is a good shade match for me, a tiny bit deeper than me but still a good shade match. This seems to be a very liquidity foundation but it seems to me that this will be a full coverage foundation.

Catrice Basic Bae Eyeshadow Palette $14.99 for .44 ounces of product. There are 5 mattes and 7 shimmers. The mattes are finely milled and extremely buttery and the shimmers are very creamy and glide on smoothly without skipping.

The last 3 things I have to share with you I purchased from ColourPop’s website: I am missing the white shade I ordered and am waiting for ColourPop’s customer service to respond to my email. 

ColourPop Creme Gel Colour $8 for .11 ounces of product in the shade Stew (a warm brown with a yellow undertone). This was part of the Karrueche x ColourPop Brow Sugar collection.

ColourPop Creme Gel Colour $87 for .11 ounces of product in the shade Swerve (a true onyx black).

ColourPop BBF Creme Gel Liner $6 for .007 ounces of product in the shade Get Paid (metallic rose gold). This is a back up. I already have 1 of this color open.

 

Well, that’s all for tonight dolls. Stay tuned tomorrow when I test out all the Catrice products I purchased.

I hope you have a good rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits. Remember save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

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 ….

20200214_125835

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).

20200214_130006

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.

XOXO

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.

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
