Youtube Video – My US Beauty Haul with Not Another Poppie

US Beauty Haul Youtube 2

Today I have something very special for you guys…ME in a Youtube video!  Chantelle from Not Another Poppie and I have become quite good friends over the last couple of months and since we both love all things beauty, we decided to do a haul video together on her Youtube channel.  Whenever I see a ‘free shipping’ promo somewhere online, I always ask her if she would like me to order some things for her, and vice versa.  The result?  Two makeup-obsessed enablers who will always have beauty products to show you guys.

So, Cherry Culture had a ‘free shipping’ deal going a couple of weeks ago and naturally Chantelle and I placed an order online.  I stocked up on a few old favourites of mine, and picked up a couple of new makeup products I haven’t tried yet (i.e. Milani lipsticks and the NYX Butter lipsticks).

Before you click on the image below, let’s just discuss a couple of things:

♥  English is not my first language, so my accent is a bit different and my pronunciation of words might not always be on point.  Let’s be frank, I sound weird… *blush*

♥  I was VERY nervous during the filming of this video, this is my first time being in a Youtube video after all.

♥  I’m not familiar with how to hold items up in front of the camera, so it might look a bit awkward at times.

I did, however, have LOADS of fun filming this video with Chantelle.  And there’s a second video in the pipeline as well, we’ve already filmed it actually and it should be going up next week some time.

So, if you’re interested in having a couple of laughs while watching us talk about the products we purchased online and swatch a couple of shades…then click on the image below:

      Yes, I’ve been eyeing it for a while now (well ever since I started watching Carli’s Youtube videos) – so glad I picked it up! It’s actually not that dark when you swatch the pencil, it’s a beautiful nude shade (not too brown either). Thank you for watching the video, Simônè! x

    • 19 June 2014 / 10:21

      Thank you for checking out the video – I’m looking forward to the next video! The other video we filmed is a total HOOT, so many bloopers haha! 🙂

    I am obviously super late to the party (catching up on blog reading) but I did watch this video when it was published. I think you rocked it. You don’t sound weird at all and I love that it is a very natural and ‘fun’ video. It always helps that you are super gorgeous too 😉

    Great products your scooped up. Ever since I saw that China Glaze polish in that collection I always think of you. I know it is the peonies part and that it is pink. 😀

    • 2 July 2014 / 22:18

      Thank you so much for your words of encouragement, I’m definitely trying to get my Youtube channel up and running asap!

      Thank you for thinking of me, Michelle. 🙂 xxx
