I’m embarrassed to admit how many hours I waste of my life watching beauty videos on YouTube. I know a ton of people hate watching haul videos but they’re my guilty pleasure. But of course, after watching a haul, instead of just merely living vicariously through them, I run out to the store first thing I can to buy it. Terrible, I know.

Here are a few new products that I picked up thanks to YouTube. All these products have had quite a bit of hype and some I agree with and some I don’t.

Sigma Sigmax Brushes – a lot of gurus have talked about how amazing these brushes are and I had to try them out. I’ve owned a flat top kabuki brush before and loved it but it wasn’t thick enough to apply foundation. These are AMAZING. I use the flat top one to apply my foundation and it smoothes it out beautifully. I did find that it does pick up some of my product so I end up having to use more than if I were to use my fingers – but I think that’s a given. The angled one is perfect for blush. After I started using this brush for blush, I’ve received so many compliments on how my blush looks. It applies it beautifully and even though I’ve used other angled brushes to apply previously, this one picks up just the right amount. (No photo because my brushes were really embarrassingly dirty)

Maybelline Baby Lips – Don’t buy this in Canada, or at least not at Shoppers Drug Mart. Being the loser I am, I bought these… at $7.99 or $6.99 when they are only about $2-$4 in the states. Ridiculous, I know. I also bought them at Shoppers which is even more expensive than most other drugstores. I was impressed with the color pay off with the pink one but the nude one is very sheer. They smell great but isn’t as moisturizing as I would like a lip balm to be.

Revlon Lip Butters – Soooooo much hype about these and I’m not sure if it was worth it. Yes, they are great. Great colour pay off on some of them and smoothing but no need to run out and pick up every single colour like every guru did on YouTube. I think their lipsticks are just as great and smoothing as well so not sure why there was such a big hype with these ones. Maybe it’s because it’s supposed to be lip butter and not lipstick?

Maybelline 24 Hour Color Tattoos – AMAZING. All I have to say. Actually, I could probably go on and on about how amazing these are. Stays put all day, beautiful colours. I only have 2 of them but definitely will pick up more. I know they are suppose to be a dupe for Mac Paint Pots but I’ve never tried Mac Paint Pots so can’t really compare. But compared to other cream shadows in a pot like these ones, they are so worth it. NTS: need to run out and pick up Bad to the Bronze ASAP.

The Naked 2 Palette - My friend Annie picked this up for me because she is awesome. At first I was hesitant about keeping it because I already had the first one but I don't regret it one bit.
