Hi! I’m Leesha, I’m 23 and I run xSparkage. xSparkage is a website showcasing all things beauty, including makeup tutorials and how-to’s, product reviews, along with high-definition photos of products, swatches, and makeup looks.
I started getting into makeup when I was a sophomore in highschool. My friend took me to the MAC Pro Store in Hollywood, and it completely opened my eyes to the world of makeup! I have been very into the online makeup community since then, starting with Livejournal communities and makeup forums and eventually finding my way to YouTube, creating video tutorials and reviews about all things beauty. Today, My youtube has almost 300,000 subscribers and over 10 million channel views, while xSparkage.com gets over 250,000 unique views monthly.
Outside of my online beauty world, I’m a huge fan of photography, baking, and my two kitties, Kiki and Babyyak, who are both from Humane Societies, which I’m a huge supporter of! Babyyak was adopted in chicago in 2008, and Kiki was adopted in Austin in August of 2010. They’ve become great buddies and love to play!

About this blog:
The purpose of this blog is to post extra information and photos about videos that were posted on my YouTube, as well as posts featuring random makeup photos, makeup swatches and reviews, nail swatches and reviews, and anything and everything related to beauty!
On some posts or videos, you may see a disclaimer, stating that a product was sent for consideration. While xSparkage does accept free product samples, I do not accept paid compensation to review a specific product in a positive light, nor do I guarantee positive reviews, or reviews at all. When a company contacts me, I let them know right away that sending me a product to try in no way is a guarantee that I will end up reviewing it or showing it on xSparkage at all. I also do what I can to have companies sponsor giveaways and discounts for you guys, so you can try out some product I love for a little less! My priority is 100% to my viewers, and I do all I can to keep my reviews and videos true to how I feel with little or no involvement or opinions from the company supplying the product.
