I’ve been playing around with the A20 Liquid Eyeshadows for well over a month now. I picked up the two shades Wave and Thermo for a dollar a piece at Shop Miss A. Shop Miss A is a super affordable website where everything is $1.00! They have a more “professional” line called A20 where the items are a little more than a dollar but still very affordable.
The packaging seems very cheap but super sturdy! The tubes feel very lightweight and almost empty. The lettering on the tubes will wipe off with much use, but almost all plastic tubing without a label will.
I wasn’t wowed by the pigment of this product. When I think Liquid eyeshadow, I think of a base so shadows are more pigmented. These did not give me that effect. Thermo was super patchy and hard to build. Wave was slightly better, more opaque and easier to build up for the perfect base.
These shadows never really dry down and will transfer if not set with a similar eyeshadow. I always thought maybe i hadn’t warn the shadows long enough for them to dry down, but after wearing a swatch of Wave for over 8 hours it was clear they weren’t made to be worn alone.
Overall Thoughts? Will I Repurchase?
I don’t believe these shadows are something I’d be purchasing again. I love liquid shadows for a base for my least pigmented shimmers, but these wouldn’t do any better than them. For the price this is a “You get what you pay for” type of product. I’m not a fan of the way the shadows don’t dry down either. I’d give this product a 2/5 rating.
Have you tried the A20 Liquid Eyeshadows? What are your thoughts?
I absolutely can’t believe that June went by so fast! Today I’m showing you what my June Goals were and letting you know if I hit or Missed them! Setting goals as a blogger, youtuber and business owner helps me keep track of how much I’ve grown or gotten better over time.
Well, here are my June Goals!
- Reach 1,500 followers on Twitter
- 830 followers on Instagram
- Stick to blog and YouTube schedule
- Make a cleaning schedule
Reason For My Goals?
Twitter and Instagram
Since starting my blog, have built up my following and engagement so I can better connect with my readers. I love talking to you all VIA Twitter or seeing what you all have been up to VIA Instagram. I have discovered that it is super hard to be active on 3+ social media accounts at one time. Being active on Twitter and Instagram connects me to some amazing bloggers and YouTubers. Which has inspired me and my content as well.
As far as my blog and YouTube schedule it’s been a dream. Pre-Filming and writing out posts and drafting them is the easiest way to get things done! In the past I was writing out posts the day of and posting and editing the same day. Being able to have time in between my content uploading on Mondays and Fridays has helped me have better quality as I can take more time to see what I’d like to better.
If you don’t know, I am a stay at home mother of two very active children. Trying to start not one…but TWO brands while keeping up with house work has been exhausting! Although, things have been a lot easier now that my oldest is on summer break there is always something to do. A schedule makes it easier to see what needs to be done and when.

Hello everyone, you all don’t know… but I’ve struggled with accepting myself at every weight I’ve been through my life. Before I had my daughter, I was pretty content with my size. I was curvy but felt I was perfect to me and that was all that mattered. Thought time I grew problems with my weight due to a toxic relationship I was in where I was always put down for my size.
After being in that relationship, I questioned my appearance and attractiveness due to weight. I’ve never been a size small and at the time it seemed everyone around me including the media was glorifying a small slender frame and looking down on anyone who was larger. This created a fight within myself. On one side I wanted to be as thin as everyone else that was praised so highly for their slender bodies. And on the other side I wanted to be happy with myself no matter what size I was.
Well I found out I was pregnant with my daughter and gained about 20 lbs. I was in shambles. I was disappointed in myself for gaining weight, not realizing the weight I gained was mostly from my daughter and not just me eating crazy. I slowly started to see myself as pretty and was content with my size. My weight has always fluctuated and never been stable. When I learned I was pregnant with my son I was okay with my body, but still self conscious of how other people saw me. After giving birth for the second time I was surprisingly happy that I was down to my pre pregnancy weight within the first three months postpartum.
This timeline leads me up till now. As of now, I’m content with my body and size. But I do still have times where I wonder what others think and don’t wear certain things because of that. I’m planning on using my blog more to show my journey of falling back in love with myself. I love being plus size. Is it a struggle sometimes when it comes to clothes and certain trends? Yes. But, the only way to really fall in love with myself and be carefree is to step outside of my box and do things differently than I have been doing. Trying new styles. Trying risky styles that I’d never grab for on a regular day. And I’m ready for the challenge! I hope you all follow me on this journey and potentially learn something as well!
Thank you for reading!
