I was so kindly asked to answer a few questions about myself that I couldn’t resist making a video for this viewer. I was given the Confessions of a Beauty YouTuber tag, and despite thinking that I don’t fit the pompous title, I gave my honest answers.
So, if you’re into long chatty videos, grab some tea, coffee or a beer and sit down with me!
magic in a bottle, a can that mists you with an invisible shield that protects you from the harmful rays of sun, that can be easily reapplied throughout the day without disturbing your makeup. but which one to go for?
I’ve tried them both. here are my thoughts.
UPDATE: My sister has atopic skin and had an allergic reaction to the La Roche Posay mist. So if you’re very sensitive, I would stay away from this one, sadly.
Bioderma Hydrabio Moisturising anti-UV mist, SPF 30
La Roche-Posay Anthelios Invisible Face Mist SPF 50
buckle up because this is a long one!
I’ve been collecting a few bits and pieces of affordable makeup brands (supermarket, drugstore, pharmacy, high street), and I decided to do a video where I try several of those products on my face and get to see how they behave throughout the day.
you can find most of the products at your local drugstore/pharmacy, but Feelunique, Look Fantastic and Boots International are always great international references for these kinds of brands (except Essence, Kiko, H&M and Makeup Revolution).
Kiko Smart Dry Nail Laquer
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge (Look Fantastic, Feelunique)
L’Oréal True Match Foundation (not many shades at Feelunique, but you can find it at your local drugstore)
Essence 2 in 1 Highlight and Contouring stick
Essence I Love Color Intensifying Eyeshadow Base
Essence My Must Haves Eyeshadow 14 – Purple Clouds
Makeup Revolution Eyeshadow in Purple Heaven — I couldn’t, for the life of me, find an online store that looked reliable, so check your local drugstore or pharmacy to see if they carry the brand.
Essence Eye and Face Palette 01
Rimmel Scandaleyes Reloaded Mascara
L’Oréal True Match Pressed Powder, again, through Feelunique or Lookfantastic
Essence My Must Haves Highlighter Powder
Essence Strobing Highlighter in let it glow!
Essence My Must Haves Lip Base
Essence My Must Haves Lip Powder
Essence Glossy Stick Lip Colour 02 – clear nude
also mentioned but not worn:
Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation
H&M Sensorium Eye Color in Cuveè Rose
here comes another unboxing, and also, my impressions on the products from the last month’s box.
I happen to be quite excited with a few of the products I received this month…

on my last visit to the supermarket, I was flabbergasted: they have discontinued the only sulfate-free shampoo line that was not meant for extremely damaged and colour-treated hair and that was readily available (as in, in the supermarket). this oily haired gal that prides herself on keeping her locks on a delicate balance that only need washing up to 3 times a week but gets dandruff whenever she uses a regular sulfate shampoo was outraged.
then my eyes hit that new thingamajig L’Oréal came up with. I’m no stranger to the no-poo trend but had never tried it — and this is just LOW-poo, but still… it probably will be too heavy, I thought.
then I reminded myself of my 3 readers/subscribers and decided “what the heck! it’s for science!”

although I have a great time with Lush’s bath bombs, bath mets and overall fun stuff, to me Lush is an overall really solid green-oriented brand with great products in all ranges. Lush is hardcore cruelty-free, many of their products are vegan, and they claim all of the chemicals they still use on their products (fragrance, sulfates, preservatives) to not be harmful for the skin, especially in the concentrations they use.
I had to had to do a video on my everyday Lush favourites.
nose disclaimer: I love soft, creamy, nutty scents, vanilla absolute, and then soft roses, coconut and coffee sort of aromas. not too much into the strongly fruity, tropical, sickening sweet or floral end of the smell spectrum. but all of this has to do with preferences, right? nothing like giving it a whiff in store ;)

the most prosaic what’s in my bag video ever uploaded on YouTube…
sorry, that’s (my) life.
do you want me to do a day-to-night or a makeup freshen-up video with what’s in my makeup bag? let me know.

Here comes the unboxing for this month’s beauty box.
Quite a nice selection of stuff, although I thought the mineral foundation was a bit of a miss because there is now way for the company to know their subscribers’ complexions and so many of them are losing the opportunity to try the product.
I also am missing a bit more of makeup products, these days… ;)
Don’t miss the review of the products form last month’s box on the end of the video.
