Youtube Made me Buy it

YouTube Made Me Buy It!

Have you ever gotten lost in the world of Youtube and at the end felt like “damn I need to buy THIS palette!”?? Today I will tell you about 3 palettes I bought because of youtube. Some I love some I “hate” or . . . well dislike!

We will start with TooFaced’s Chocolate Bar. I bought this palette because EVERYONE raved about it. It was the palette to own.

I justified getting it because it had neutrals and color. Mattes and shimmers. Overall it’s an ok palette. A few things I like about it is the color selection. It has good variation for a neutral look or even a glammed look. Also, some of the colors are very pigmented. Some stuff I didn’t like. . .

As you can see one of the shadows popped out. It isn’t magnetic so every time I travel or open it the pan falls out. The packaging isn’t my favorite either. While it’s very beautiful and cute the magnets giving out and if I’m not careful the pan falls on the floor. Hence the cracked product.

Up next is the Chocolate bars cousin. The Chocolate BonBon palette.

The problem I have with this palette is that I hardly reach for it. It’s almost like it’s just there to be pretty. Like its cousin some of the colors are hit or miss with the pigmentation. It features beautiful colors that I thought would take me out of my “neutral” comfort zone but I have yet to do a colorful look with it.

I do however love the transition shades in this palette and Satin Sheets as a highlight. Sadly the packaging is adorable but magnetic and flimsy feeling like the Chocolate bar.

Another palette Youtube made me buy is Urban Decays Naked2. This is a staple for every beginner makeup enthusiast. DSC_0367

This is another palette I haven’t used in such a long time. Perhaps it’s because its been put away or maybe because I’m not drawn to the shades. It’s mostly shimmer and back when I first started my makeup journey I didn’t know I wouldn’t “love” shimmers.

Maybe its the fall out I’m not attracted to or the fact to ME shimmers get a bit muddy. Or they lose the actual shimmer to them. I love the shock pigments/shadows from Colourpop and when I want a glittery look I turn to them.

All of these palettes cost a pretty penny. If you’re a collector and don’t care about some the cons then these aren’t so bad. But if you are looking for some cheap alternatives there are some great choices out there. They’re beautiful palettes all 3 of them. With some pro’s and some con’s. I don’t regret ANY of them.

Is there anything Youtube made you buy? Anything you regret?

#MOTD (my spring go to look)

It’s been beautiful here in Florida and I’ve started to back off of foundation. It gets so hot I don’t like to pack on the products. On days we go out or to the beach I skip foundation and just opt for concealer and a face powder.  Easy, quick, light, and simple!!

 We spent all of Saturday at the beach with family so I didn’t take any pictures of myself but this is basically the look I do. The only difference was I skipped the wing liner. But like usual I moisturize and prime like normal. I ALWAYS make sure my moisturizer has spf. If I’m going to wear foundation I make sure it has spf too. I did a glossy lip just to go with my “Dewey” theme. I packed on the highlight just for a fresh look.  Which I have been using the eyeshadow Satin Sheets from the Bon Bon palette. A neat trick I saw Nicole Guerriero does is she puts setting spray on her beauty blender and goes over her highlight just to set it into the skin and get rid of that powder look. 

    
This is Saturday. Same makeup deats just no liner. By the way I really should have thought of bringing a Chapstick or lip balm with spf in it. First time in my life I have sun burned lips! Ouch!   

 
I’m so excited for summer 2016. Anyone else?! 

What are some of your spring/summer looks? Or go to products??

#MOTD

I wasn’t sure if I was going to post another make up of the day so soon since I haven’t been wearing much makeup lately. But I finally got around to using my Too Faced Bon Bon palette!


Here is the look I created. I was so happy with it and drew inspiration from Missy Lyn on YouTube.

I tried something different and primed my eyelids with Mac’s pro long wear concealer and set it with the Laura Mercier translucent setting powder. As a transition shade I used mocha from the Bon Bon palette. Then taking Bordeaux on the outer corner and inner corner I slowly built up the shades intensity. With a little fix+ on my brush I put café au lait in the center of the lid. As a brow bone highlight I used the Balms Mary Lou minizer as well as the at the inner corners. As always as an eyeliner I used Kat Von D’s tattoo liner in trooper. For mascara I combined Benefit’s Roller lash and Too faced Better than sex. My favorite combination.

 Like I said I was soooo happy with the end results! Here is the same pic with a filter.

Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoy similar ones!
