Some of my favourite products (even holy grail products), have been discovered through watching makeup gurus on youtube.
When you see rave after rave about a product, you just can't help but get a bit curious...
So, being a makeup addict, I run out and buy. Sometimes I get seriously disappointed (see my Don't Believe The Hype post), other times it can be a product that I have loved from day one.
I don't think my makeup collection would be as big, or as beautiful, if it had not been for the gurus on youtube... So I thank you :)
MAC Lipstick in Angel
I first heard about this from the famous Elle or AllThatGlitters21.
It was her favourite lipstick (this is going back a few years now), and I was so intrigued by her 'kind words' that I got it too. And I am very happy I did. Angel is a beautiful wearable pink. A staple in my collection.
Too Faced Beauty Balm
Again, this was bought based on a video made by Elle and lollipop26.
They both loved this, and now I do too!
It is the kind of product that I would never have discovered if it was not for youtube.
MAC Mineralize Blush
This is Dainty and Love Rock - two absolutely stunning blushes.
Elle did a tutorial (a vampire one if I remember correctly) using Dainty, and I was sold. Through Dainty I discovered the other mineralized blushes, and now I am the happy owner of 7 of them :)
MAC Paint Pots
I never knew that these could be used as eyeshadow bases! I just had one sitting in my makeup drawer rarely being used. Then came along a youtube guru (can't remember which one) and brought new life to my dear Bare Study ♥
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Another product that I probably wouldn't have known about of it wasn't for youtube.
Makes the eyeshadow last all day - perfection.
I first heard about these brushes from michele1218.
She mentioned how soft they were, much softer than MAC brushes, which got me curious. I found these a few months later in Tesco, and she was right.!They are super soft and now my new favourite brushes.
Urban Decay 24/7 liners
A lof of gurus rave about these amazingly soft liners. They are all right, of course :)
Benefit Thrrrob blush and Boiing concealer
Benefit have some great products, and having tried my fair share of them (with both failure and success), I have found some wonderful holy grail makeup that I always keep in my makeup bag.
Both being used in makeup tutorials on youtube, these two caught my attention early on. Thrrrob is a gorgeous pale pink blush & Boiing is a seriously solid concealer.
Soap & Glory
It's not just makeup products that I have discovered on youtube. Soap & Glory has been mentioned a few times too. I eventually decided to check out some of their produts...and fell in love, like so many others.
Everybody deserves to know the luxury of a lush product. The pampering and soothing effect goes beyong any bath product I have ever tried before.
I think almost all of the makeup gurus on youtube have mentioned Lush at some point. I'm sure they have made Lush a lot of money ;)
