My Microblading Experience

Hey Guys,
I know its been a long time coming but today I'm going to share my microblading experience. I wanted my my brows to fully heal from both appointment before sharing my honest review and thoughts on the procedure.  I mainly wanted to share my experience to help other people trying to decide if this is the right decision for them. It's something that I have thought about doing for quite a while. I had waited mainly because of price and the fact that you are basically tattooing your brows onto your face. For those of you unfamiliar with microblading, its a tattooing technique in which a small handheld tool made of several tiny needles (or a small scalpel) is used to add semi-permanent pigment to the skin. The process could take anywhere from an hour to several hours. Every person is different and depends on the look you are going for and how much eyebrows you already have. The microblading can last anywhere from 6 months to a year plus depending on the person and after care. Prices can range anywhere from $350-$800+ depending on the artist. I have a ton of info to share and tons of pictures of my brows through the process. Keep reading to hear about my experience.

Before Appointment
My Microblading Experience
As you can see I already had plenty of brows before my appointment. Many people get their eyebrows microbladed because they have no eyebrow hair at all. I chose to do it not because I didn't have eyebrows but because I could not get my brow hair to grow in certain areas such as the tail ends of my brows. I have tried for years and they just wouldn't fully grow in. I would spend a good 10-15 minutes filling in my my brows each time I did my makeup and I honestly just got sick of it. I did a little research, chose my microblading artist, and booked the appointment.

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on the Kaja Beauty Bento Bouncy Eyeshadow Trios. I have wanted to try these little compact shadows for a while and finally picked them up a few months ago. I shared one of them on Instagram and loved it so much that I purchased a couple more. I am traveling soon and originally planned to bring one larger eyeshadow palette with me. After I purchased a new toiletry bag I decided that I was going to only bring one bag for all of my makeup and skincare. The best way to succeed at that is to bring smaller items. That is when I decided to pick up more of these little trios. Keep reading to hear more about these Bouncy Eyeshadow Trios and to see swatches of each.

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on the Tartelette Juicy Palette. Its been quite a while since I purchased a palette or a bunch of makeup in general. I have always been a fan of Tarte shadows and their Tartelette palettes especially.  I have owned all of them at one point or another. This palette isn't brand new but it is their newest one that they have launched. I decided to pick it up because the colors seem like a good range of neutrals that you could use on a daily basis. Keep reading to hear more about this palette, my thoughts on it, and swatches.

I have been trying these products out for about a week and am ready to share my thoughts with you. Keep reading to learn more about the products, see swatches, and my overall opinion of them.
