What I've Been Doing On YouTube...

If you enjoy youtube, I have some videos from the past week that might interest you.  I don't post all my videos here.  Even though all of my media are related, each has a different feel doesn't it?  I saw the funniest video on Instagram the other day where it was said to have all social medias in a meeting.  The LinkedIn persona said we should schedule a meeting to discuss this.  Facebook said they were going to repost something they saw from an unknown source on it.  Twitter #&$# them out.  YouTube paused doing their makeup, and Snapchat came in nekkid.  It was hilarious.  And true.  Each media has different content so you really need to follow all to get a well rounded version of Polarbelle.  :)

My most recent video contains the cutest bunny headband ever from The Vintage Cosmetics Company and is only $4.99 sold at Ulta.   They have brand new spring releases that just launched today.  I have a couple of things I'll show you soon.  I am doing a Get Ready With Me featuring the Urban Decay X Kristen Leanne Kaleidoscope Dream palette.  I'm in LOVE with this palette and it's a good price at just $39.  You heard it here first...this is THE palette of summer this year!

If you've been reading awhile, or following on social, or know me IRL, you'll know that I have a big collection of pretties.  Some of them have been just TOO pretty for me to use.  I'm showing you my favorites in my Makeup Too Pretty To Use video.  Maybe you'll see some of your faves in there.

And then there are my 5 powerhouse hero products that I use literally on the daily but they are so much a part of me that I forget to talk about them.  One day I realized that instead of assuming you know about them, I should tell you.  Karen from was deep in my brain and her idea for Unsung Heroes just kept popping to the surface of my consciousness until it was something I had to create.

So there you go guys...I've been busy.  Do you have any video or blog requests for me?  We're just a few subscribers shy of my next round number on youtube and I'm itching to do a video.  I kind of made myself wait to achieve a goal, so when we hit that round number, we'll have a giveaway.  What is you favorite type of video to watch?  Have a great weekend!

I Had Some Hauls - New Videos On The Tube

In the last few weeks, I've taken advantage of some sales, gift cards and coupons and filmed a haul video with some mini reviews mixed in. I broke it up into two youtube videos; the first is drugstore, Mac and Sephora. The second video is my Ulta coupon haul. Posting on youtube generally has a different type of structure than blog posts. The content is often different and I don't really know if it's something blog readers like to see or not, but if you do, here they are.  Let me know if you'd like to see anything in a Get Ready With Me type of video or blog post.

Polarbelle's Week In Review

The past week has been a very busy one for me.  There were quite a few appointments, lots of swatching and testing, and a few videos that went out.  In case you hadn't been able to check them out, I'll just show you what I've talked about over the week.

One of the booths I visited while at The Makeup Show in LA was Charlotte Tilbury, one of my favorite brands.  I love the classic appeal of the packaging and the items themselves.  I'll have more up on the blog soon but for now, you can check out my Get Ready With Me featuring the Instant Eye Palette, a limited edition.

The next video I recorded featured my stop at the Muse Beauty Pro booth at TMSLA.  I planned to go there first to pick up a few things.  I also came home with the Grande Pro Palette, a limited edition matte palette.  I've swatched the items purchased at the booth and you can see them in the following video.  You'll see more about these items as I continue to explore them.  Don't miss the giveaway at the end of the video.

My November Sephora Play box came in while I was filming the other videos, so I have my analysis here:

See my Crimes Of Beauty shirt?  I bought it at The Makeup Show while surveying the goods at the Crimes Of Beauty booth.  It's actually a tank but for winter, I plan to layer it with another shirt.

I've scheduled some videos for the upcoming week and plan to have more for you to read as well.  There's just so much to tell you right now!!!

Be sure to enter the giveaway on the Muse Beauty Pro TMSLA post, and look for another coming up this week.

How about you?  Do you feel like you have so much going on and the latter part of the year is starting to whiz by at record speed?

Four Hottest Eyeshadow Palettes for Fall 2017 - Huda, Kat Von D, Nyx, Too Faced

This week on my youtube channel, I tackled four of the hottest most hyped eyeshadow palettes that have come out this fall.  I know you've all heard about the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk palette, and perhaps you've heard of the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner palette as well.  I don't think there's a corner of the makeup world that isn't curious about the Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes palette, and I know the NYX Professional Makeup Sugar High caused quite a stir when we first spied it at Cosmoprof North America this year.  I've chosen to swatch and review these highly hyped eyeshadow palettes and tell you my thoughts, from my point of view and my skintone, and hopefully help you to decide for yourself if they will work for you.

**Find the first three here:
The Nyx Sugar High can be found here:

I'm really curious to hear your thoughts as well.  Have you purchased any?  Have you seen or swatched them in the store?  What are you most looking forward to seeing this fall?
