Pin It As of this moment, my brain is fried from writing reviews. It always happens when the weather heats up. Everything I see in stores have to do with bronzers and such. I do have bronzers but I don't depend on them for a make up look so I really don't have much to report during the summer when it comes to cosmetics.
As for this blog, I find it is a nice blog and has pretty much done what it was suppose to do. Am I quitting? Not yet but the thought has crossed my mind and somehow I do find it goes on. Lately, though I have been analyzing my stats which really shouldn't matter to me but in a sense they give me an outlook of my audience.
When I do the tutorial or series stuff like the eyeliner posts and brush posts, those get the most hits or return hits. The rest, eh. Yeah, I know many things are reviewed everywhere and there are many more blogs out there to read with much more interesting beauty products that you want to see. I don't blame you because I read those blogs too.
I guess what I am trying to say is I hate to disappoint my audience when it comes to beauty products, I try to buy the latest but at the same time I don't want to buy them just for the sake of reviewing them. I have to want them myself, after all it is my money that I am spending and budgeting.
Sure I could buy $200 worth of makeup and I have done that many times over but often it gets chucked into a dark train case because something else pops up that captures my attention. I got really frustrated with this and wondered why I was doing this. I did it because I thought maybe this will be the product that will make me look good or feel good. WRONG! It was me and my application that made me feel so shitty! If I didn't understand how to put on makeup and my own anatomy, I am sure there were others out there.
That is why I came up with those tutorials which are now on Into the Palette. I know many of you look at them and may not understand. And, may disagree with the methods. I just want you to know that it is just a collection of posts that are evolving as I learn also. There is really no right or wrong, well there is but really has to do with the difference of looking like crap or looking great. And what am I trying to say before this posts just rambles on and on?
This blog at the moment or maybe this summer will suffer because I would and seem to have better luck with tutorial posts than reviews. With this in mind, what takes time for me is the explanation part. I like for everyone to understand in regular words what and how to do these tutorials and this takes up many GB of RAM in my brain thus slowing down my CPU. I can only blog one at a time. Yes, I am working on a new tutorial and it has been requested via Twitter. If you are wondering what it is, it is the eye look of Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) of Revenge.
That is taking up my time and I will have to ignore this blog. I would also like to mention that I am always looking for volunteers for that blog. If you also have requests, please do request. All the info can be found here.
My deepest apologies for this blog and its contents. In the meantime, stay tuned and check out Into the Palette.
