September Favorites + I'm On YouTube!


Hey Guys! Sorry it's been a while since I've posted...things have been crazy-busy at home but I've also been working on a new project- a YouTube Channel!

As much as I love writing and taking photos, it's become very hard to keep up with everything in my personal life in addition to writing out blog posts. It's extremely time consuming, especially editing the photos of products (that probably takes the longest). So I thought it might be easier to just hop on camera and actually show you the products! I'm not super comfortable on camera yet, but I'm sure I'll get there with time.
My plan is to keep my blog and still update you on new product launches (and quicker posts like that) and I'll also share my videos with you (like I'm doing here). I really hope that you'll consider subscribing to my channel as well! It's going to be just like my blog...but you'll just get to see me talk about the products in person. :)

I can promise you that I'm not going to "sell out" or do anything differently than I do here. My goal isn't to become the next big YouTube star and I plan to keep things very "real" and unpolished. I feel like YouTube has become commercialized these days and too professional...I miss the days when it was just beauty enthusiasts sitting in their bedroom talking about their favorite products.

So without further's my September favorites!

  1. Yay! Congrats on starting your channel. I look forward to watching! I do hope to still see those great swatch and product photos you post. They are so helpful.

  2. Hi Susan, thank you so much! I do still take a few product/swatch photos for Instagram so I'll definitely add them to my video posts as well! :)

  3. Yes, congrats from "the other Susan, the one whose last name even rhymes with Nadler" (no kidding, what are the odds?)! ;-) I like your first two videos a lot -- very real. You look beautiful and your makeup looks are "do-able" by us novices; you're not layering on ten pounds of makeup and using two dozen brushes to do it. Who has time for that?

    I also check your Instagram pictures every day and really like how you compare similar shades and palettes. So helpful. Hey, have you seen that the Tarte Toasted palette is finally coming out and there are swatches? I was excited about it but it looks like a dupe of UD Heat, and I didn't get that one because on your recommendation I got the Nyx Warm Neutrals palette instead and saved myself a lot of $$. :-D

    p.s. Hope you will continue to do an anti-haul post occasionally. Thanks.

  4. I don't really watch YouTubers anymore, but I love your content so much I'll make an exception. :)


I love hearing your comments! Leave 'em here!
