Hey guys!  I wanted to do a blog post asking you all to please let me know your opinion on a couple of things.  First off, I have tons and tons of products I would like to review and post, but I am also interested in reviewing things that you all request.  I don’t just want to review things I am interested in.  If there is a product you have been eyeing, but you don’t want to spend your money before you know if it’s good, let me know and I will pick it up and try it out. J  Also, I know this is a beauty blog and my YT channel is also about beauty, but I have been on a weight loss journey and I was wondering if there was anyone out there who would be interested in my day to day progress.  I could do it on my channel and current blog or I could start a new channel and blog so I don’t flood you guys with a bunch of stuff that you have no interest in.  These would be very short videos, about 2 minutes long.  It would be like a weight loss check in.  To be honest selfishly I feel like this would benefit me if I had people to check in with.  It would be like a diary for me.  I will make a video asking if any of my subscribers would be interested as well.  I rarely talk about my personal life on my YT channel and I never have on my blog so this would be a huge change for me.  It’s a bit scary putting yourself out there like that when you don’t know how people will react to the way you live your life.  This brings me to my next question.  Aside from weight loss, what would you guys think about me doing a Sunday vlog video?  Again, this would be like a diary for me.  I would get into some personal things and it would be a way for you to get to know me better.  I won’t share everything going on in my life, but it would be sort of a check in.  Would this boar you out of you minds?! Lol  Let me know what you all think.  I hope to hear from you soon. J  Look for a video being uploaded tonight  (hopefully)!  XOXO

Inglot Eyeshadow Swatches

Hi everyone!  I have taken some pictures of some shadows from Inglot.  All the shadows I own are in the freedom system palettes.  I buy the shadows in the square pans which contain 2.7g of product.  The rounds contain 1.8g of product.  The palettes come with 10 shadows and cost $50.00 for the square and $45.00 for the rounds.  I also have a pro card with Inglot so I get 20% off.  This is a fantastic deal.  Its very affordable and the quality and pigmentation is amazing.  I love these shadows and use them everyday on myself and clients.  I was not able to swatch every shadow I have so I tried to pick a variety to showcase the color range.  I hope that you find this post helpful!!

I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance to swatch the pink/reds and Urban Decay's Primer Potion to swatch all of the other colors.


(From Left to right on each row, I have listed the color numbers)
Pearl 450, AMC 48, D.S. 495, Pearl 452, Matte 361, Pearl 431, Pearl 399, Matte 352, AMC Shine 48

Pearl 428, Matte 372, AMC 56, AMC Shine 28, Matte 388, AMC 68, AMC 61, D.S. 477, Pearl 419
AMC 68 looks black, but its actually a black with beautiful flex of blue in it!


AMC Shine 07, AMC Shine 11, AMCShine 26, D.S. 474, Pearl 430, AMC 60, AMC 51, Pearl 407, 
Pearl 393


Matte 379, D.S. 494, Pearl 439, AMC 63, AMC 64, AMC 65, AMC Shine 47, Matte 376, Pearl 451

Thank you for stopping by!  All of these products and more can be found on the Inglot website.

Hi everyone!
 I’m so sorry that I have not been keeping up with my blog.  As some of you know, it is not easy blogging and maintaining a Youtube channel.  I do love it though so I will be putting more time and effort into both. J  Also, please please please ignore all of my grammatical mistakes.  I am so bad at writing and spelling.  I probably sound like a 5 year old when I write, but you will hopefully get the point.  I just posted a haul video and spelled it HUAL!  What?!?!?  Why did I do that??   I also need to get a better camera for still shots so bear with me on the photo quality.  I will be posting some swatches from the makeup show and swatches of all of my Inglot eye shadows.  I tried to take pictures of the Inglot lipsticks and they didn’t turn out the way I wanted them too.  I will try to take pictures of the lipsticks in natural light and see if that helps.  I also have pictures of some looks that I did tutorials on that I need to upload.  See!!  I’m so behind on this blog.  Boo!!! 
                On another note,   I did make an announcement on my Youtube channel about the contests I will be having.  First of all I do have a winner for my February Inglot palette contest so I will announce the winner today.  Secondly, I will be having a contest every month this year and I just posted a contest video for March!  I am so excited about this because I love doing the contests and it’s so fun to see you guys get excited about them.  I am the same way.  I love it when a channel I am following has a contest.  Even if I don’t win, it’s still good fun. J  I will put the link for my contest video below.  Thank you guys so much for subscribing to my blog and Youtube channel.  It means so much to me and I really do enjoy each and every message and comment I get.  Good luck on the contest and I will talk to you all soon!!!
