Quick Ipsy Bag Giveaway!

I’ve been doing a bunch of planning for my upcoming giveaway to celebrate Seeking Subtle Glow reaching 10,000 views, and I’ve decided to do a mini giveaway on my Facebook page as a trial run.  Because I moved during the middle of the month, I had some confusion changing my address and I ended up receiving two April ipsy bags.  I am quite satisfied with what I received in my first bag so I thought this would be a great opportunity to share my second one with someone who maybe didn’t order in time this month or didn’t like the items they received.

So here’s how this is going to work:

1. Like my Facebook page for a super simple entry.  Everyone who likes my page will automatically be entered.


(There should a box in the column to the right of this post with a like button, so just can click that for an entry or check out the full page here.)

2. Share the Seeking Subtle Glow page with your followers on Facebook for a second entry.  Be sure to tag @SeekingSubtleGlow so I know you posted it.  There should be a share button at the bottom of this post, or feel free to create your own!

Each person can enter up to two times, once by each method listed above.  This giveaway will run until Wednesday May 7th at 10pm and the winner will be announced Thursday May 8th at 12pm.

Please let me know if you have any questions about the giveaway or the products included in the bag.  And check out some more photo’s of what you will receive below!

LORAC afterGLO Review

I was so excited when I first laid eyes on the LORAC afterGLO palette and I quickly ordered not just one, but two, of these beautiful looking palettes from Ulta as soon as they were available.  Check out my swatches of all the shades included and then read my review below.


This palette has arrived just in time for summer.  The great range of shades provide you with a ton of colors to play with and mix together to create some super fun summer looks.   The first colors to catch my eye were the blue and green along the left side, and the dark blue really is a magnificent shade.  It is super pigmented and goes a bit tealish when applied heavily.  The green is a bit more sheer and shimmery, but makes for a great transitionary shade when blending with the blue.

Upon seeing pictures of this palette I was extremely excited about the gold because I could wear a good gold eyeshadow everyday, but I was not especially impressed with this particular shade.  It is not very pigmented at all and it looks much more yellow than gold when applied.  It is super shimmery though, so I usually use it to layer over the other colors.

I haven’t actually used the copper or purple shades on my eyes yet but I did play around with them a bit when I was swatching them.  The cooper is beautiful and extremely pigmented and shimmery.  It almost has more gold sparkle in it than the actual gold shade has.  The purple, on the other hand, was a bit disappointing when it comes to pigmentation.  It did not show up very well on my arm and what you see pictured above is after applying many layers.  However, I do like that it is a matte shadow because most of the purple shades I own are super shimmery.

I was quite pleased with the two brown shades and the coral in the right half of the palette.  I will post some pictures this afternoon, but I actually used these three shades together to creative a neutral eye with a pop of color.  The pink is super pigmented and I loved how it layered to look super bright.  The two browns blend really well together and made for a super quick neutral smoky eye with only two shades.

The two shades along the bottom are honestly a little blah for me.  They are supposed to be there to layer the colors over or use for blending, but they are not super useful in my opinion.  They are both pretty shades but could definitely use some more pigmentation in my opinion.

Overall I have been very pleased with this palette and it’s potential uses in the upcoming summer.  Some of the shades are lacking in pigmentation but the colors are beautiful and the price is right on point.

Don’t forget that I have an extra LORAC afterGLO palette just waiting to be sent out to one of you in my upcoming giveaway!  I will announce all of the details once we hit 10,000 views so make sure to keep sharing with your friends and visiting daily to see all the exciting things we have in store :)
