Life is Like a Palette of Chocolates

When I first started wearing make-up, eye shadow was what I fell in love with first, that was what I spent the most money on so in November I told myself that I would stop buying eye shadow, unless it was a color that I didn’t have anything similar to.

So back in May, I allowed myself to go to ULTA and check out some shadow palettes. Of course my immediate pickup was the Naked 3 palette since I was on an eye shadow fast when it released, and the second palette I picked up was the Chocolate Bar Palette by Too Faced ($50).

When I saw the palette, I immediately fell in love (I’m a sucker for cute packaging). Once I opened it, I saw the heavens open! I am a neutral fanatic and this palette is that and so much more so I had to have it. I I didn’t use it until a couple weeks ago and I fell in love all over again, so I thought I’d let ya’ll meet my new Bae.

So many people rant and rave about the Naked palettes, but this is my new favorite! AND IT EVEN SMELLS LIKE CHOCOLATE! I used this palette to create the look that you see below. I used the shades Salted Caramel, Cherry Cordial mixed with Black Truffle Forest, and Triple Fudge in the corner and crease to achieve my casual, but sexy school daze smokey eye!

I fell in love with this look and this palette. The colors blend so easily together without fading or coming off. All in all, I would definitely recommend this product and I would definitely purchase it again. If you don’t have this palette, you should definitely get it QUICK!

The Beginning.

Welcome my delightful bloggers and…..bleaders? I should probably just say blog readers instead of trying to be catchy…..Anywhoozles, I want to start off by asking you guys to bare with me. *Here comes the disclaimer.* This is my first time writing a blog, or writing anything that’s available for a large number of people to read for that matter so don’t expect a literary genius. English class was not my favorite. My grammar may not be correct all of the time and I might speak with a little slang and Ebonics, but in my book that’s okay….After all, I won’t be the one teaching your children or little siblings English at the local elementary school. Oh yeah, there may be some use of profanity, so please forgive my potty mouth in advance.

My name is Jaelin, yes its a boy’s name too. I’m just a regular, chocolate, Caribbean gyal- V.I. Massive- that is obsessed with all things in the beauty realm. Yes, I am that girl that spends over an hour on her makeup; the friend that takes forever to get ready; the one that has a specific manicurist at the nail salon and I love it! This blog is intended for all things woman. Hair, makeup, skincare, nails, little fashion, maybe even some sexuality stuff; who knows. This is a buy one, get everything kind of blog.

I hope ya’ll (yes, I’m from Texas; no, we don’t ride horses) join me on this journey through beauty and all the things that encompass it! Hopefully ya’ll don’t just sit and listen to me blab each post, lets get interactive! Part of me wanting to start this blog is wanting to hear your opinions, so let me hear it! Agree or disagree, I wanna know what you think, so don’t be shy! (cause I’m definitely not) Without further ado, welcome to the blog of a Juicy Complected Girl!
