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?

Love My Youtubers

One of my favorite things to do while I’m feeding my son is watch youtube. Its relaxing, entertaining, and inspirational. I learn a lot from many of the youtubers I watch and I also like challenging myself by recreating looks I like.

Today I’d like to tell you guys about my updated favorites. As time goes by we grow and so does our interests and that goes for who I like to watch too. Something that is important to me when I’m obsessing over a new youtuber is that I don’t want products shoved down my throat. While I can respect their hustle sometimes it’s not genuine. They have discount codes and hype up a product that is not worth it. As a family with one incoming and a sick makeup obsession I don’t want our hard-earned money going towards products that . . . suck!

Another thing is I want to be able to interact with the person I’m watching and its usually someone with a smaller audience. Most of the people I will mention I’ve talked to one on one or have asked about products they use and gotten a sincere answer.

I’ve done a post like this before you can read it Here. As you will see my interest have somewhat changed.

fullsizeoutput_eBailey Sarian. Im not exactly sure how I came across her channel but I am so glad I did! She’s funny, mega talented, and so down to earth. She’s a makeup artist and has great tips. A lot of girls on youtube are self-taught and won’t do makeup on others and that’s what makes Bailey so amazing. Her content and input isn’t about what works just for/on her but what would work on her clients or what they like. I’ve fortunately have spoken to Bailey one on one and she’s so genuinely kind and helpful. Bailey has actually  recently signed up with Ipsy so if you have a subscription you will be blessed with her face soon! 😝

fullsizeoutput_5 Someone that makes the list again is Jasminesong. She’s another makeup artist I randomly found but I know for sure I found her on Instagram. A friend of mine tagged me in her posts because of her piercing and from that follow a friendship was formed. You know how you watch these people and you think to yourself “I’d seriously get along with her!” Well that happened to me with Jasmine. She has amazing talent, has a big heart, and is so easy to watch.

fullsizeoutput_1Beautyybird actually has a lot of followers and does the whole discount code in your face thing but her personality makes up for all of that. She’s so bubbly and happy all the time I can watch her for hoursssss. She’s that type of person that starts putting makeup on and you’re hypnotized. It’s so seamless and easy to follow along. I often challenge myself in recreating some of her looks.

fullsizeoutput_bNow this is Yasmin’s vlog she has with her husband. I love vlogs but don’t follow any vlog channels besides theirs. I will watch their channel every single night. . . I AM HOOKED! Her personality bursts through the screen and her relationship with her husband is so inspirational. She is also very family oriented which I can appreciate.

fullsizeoutput_13Lastly there is Tymetheinfamous. Can she have a million subscribers already?!? She has pure raw talent. She does makeup like I’ve never seen before. Its bold, its out there, its in your face, and its mesmerizing. She also has one of the best personalities ever. Its dry but not boring, her voice is so soothing, and she’s soooo honest. Like, issues around the world in with our government honest!

Now don’t get me wrong I still have my og’s I am obsessed with like Nicole and Kathleen but it’s time to give some of the less known faces some love. Talent like theirs deserves some recognition. And I forgot about Carli Byble. She’s also a fave of mine because of her vegan ways and her kind soul.

Who are some of your old, new, or OG youtubers??

One of my favorite things to do on my down time besides reading, online window shopping, is watching videos on youtube. Some people I watch because I genuinely like their talent but others I like watching their video blogs or ‘vlogs’. Here is my top list of Youtuber’s I like to watch. They’re in no specific order.

First of is Jazminesong . . .I have spoken to her one on one. She is so talented, nice, and down to earth. We follow each other on snapchat and she’s given me pointers and has helped me whenever I have any questions.

Second is Lustrelux. . . I came across Katy when I subscribed to all of the Ipsy beauty gurus. She is so funny and has amazing talent.

Then we have Kathleenlights. Chances are you’ve seen her or have heard someone talk about her. I started watching her channel because she was also a military spouse and that made her so relatable. Not to mention she looks so much like my best friend. Also, Kathleen does a lot of drugstore looks and if you watch her for a while you’ll notice she genuinely uses drugstore products.

Nicole Guerriero , I think everyone knows her. She’s like the OG of youtube. I like watching  her beauty videos but I LOVE her video blogs ‘vlogs’ she has the cutest personality and like me knows the lyrics to almost every song she listens to. She loves cats and at times my daughter and I watch just to see the cats.

What would Lizzy do is my favorite makeup vloggers. Her personality is contagious and her makeup looks are so easy to recreate.

I am slightly obsessed with makeup videos. I always turn to youtube for reviews and makeup looks. I like challenging myself by recreating looks and maybe one day when I gain some confidence I’ll start my own channel but for now I’ll just watch and admire.

Who are some of your favorite youtubers or “beauty gurus”??

Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post!
