Snow White, Circe, Chloe
Fig, Doll, Louisiana
Squiggly lines to the left is the lip liner in "Natural"
(Swatches with flash)

All purchased from Cherry Culture (I think theres a sale right now!)

Oh and found a photo of me wearing Circe the first day I got it! I was so excited to find a nude that wasn't too light and could be worn on it's own. Im not 100% sure about my MAC shade now, I think im between NC20-25 at the moment. But im 118 in Make Up Forever, which is a perfect match for me

Last photo is for...i'm sorry I forget your name >.< and couldn't find your e-mail. But as I mentioned...its just a loose shirt with a wide neck. You have to kind of use your imagination to figure out how it can be worn

Helllloooo my wonderful blog readers :)

Sorry for the kind of underwhelming blog posts lately. I know that people have always enjoyed that I talked about personal things on my blog, and I'm glad because thats what I originally intended it to be. I wanted my blog to be a place I could connect with people and share more of my life outside of youtube, beauty, etc because these things are honestly only a very small part of my life. However as I've gotten larger on youtube and as many other youtubers have addressed, the hate and negativity surrounding youtubers has been ridiculous. I'm no longer going to talk about life, friends etc because my friends, family and the people I associate with don't deserve to be harassed, stalked, snooped on etc (essentially punished) for the decisions I've made to make videos. Also as many of you have noticed, I'm no longer going to host my own blogtvs. At least I can teehee at the "haters", but my friends receive nothing and don't deserve the invasion of privacy.

So with that being said, I'm sorry. I'm quite sad myself...I had lots of funny pictures, stories etc to share. I agree that it's completely ridiculous a few bad apples have to ruin it for everyone. I know some of you guys have followed me from day one, and I really and truly appreciate it. But once again I won't let my friends be punished for the decisions I make.

Therefore, this blog will from now on only be reviews, swatches and the like (boring stuff). Probably the only other people it will feature are people who have also made the same silly decisions as me to "put ourselves out there". But if we didn't who would you have to titter about all day?

I seriously considered deleting my twitter as well, but im going to keep it around since its honestly the easiest and fastest platform for me to communicate with people when they ask a question. So if you wanted anything answered somewhat quickly, just head over there @mszjackiechu. Sometimes I don't see it right away but if I don't get back to you that day try again and hopefully I'll see it that time!

Have a nice summer guys :)

My First Jewelmint Purchase :)

So I had heard a lot about this company. I have to say I was pretty doubtful at first (I'm a critic/pessimist) particularly because the company was a subscription service and I had never dealt with a company like that before. For those of you guys that don't know what Jewelmint is, its a monthly subscription service and for $29.99 a month (however, theres a million 1/2 off codes floating around) you get to pick a piece "chosen" for you :) however I'd ALWAYS advise to hit the "show me more" tab on the left main screen so you can see the ENTIRE website's selection for that month

-Unique jewelry, everyone should find something they like
-Quality pieces and packaging
-Often have 50% off coupons
-Has ideas on what to wear with the pieces you choose
-Offers FREE jewelry if you refer your friend. Give your friends your referral link and you'll receive a free credit for a piece of jewelry :) I like this because I feel as if most referral programs only offer partial credit towards a purchase, here you actually get something when you refer someone (IE EVERYONE, even if you have no following can get something!)
-Shipping is included :)!

-Once you've made your first purchase, you MUST remember to skip that month if you decide you don't want anything! (This could be hard to remember for some people)
-The style quiz is super fun! But often times their top pick for me actually wasn't my top, however the more you use the site the more the site gets to know your taste =] This is why I suggest you ALWAYS hit the show me more tab

I only decided to check it out and purchase two pieces because I heard good review after good review about this site, and not just from people who received these for free. Subscribers, random blogs and yes fellow youtubers (whose opinion I know I can trust and count on) only had good things to say. I decided to buy them on my own (even though the company previously messaged me) because I think my email to them got lost and I was afraid of the pieces I'd like selling out. I definitely don't regret my purchase :) and am very happy. Please watch my youtube video for more info!

PS. I chose to skip this month- but the versailles earrings are back in stock if you have the same taste as me! :) Overall I'm kind of surprised by how much fun I had with this site >.< I bought these on the 31st so I was surprised by how much I looked forward to June's selections =]
