A few months ago, I decided to search for make up tutorials on YouTube as I was having problems applying my liquid liner and wanted to perfect my technique (yes I have way too much time on my hands). I came across some videos by Lollipop26 (a.k.a. Laura) and found myself subscribing to and thoroughly enjoying her reviews, rambles and tutorials. It must be a natural curiosity within most women to want to delve into the contents of other women's make up bags and discover how they look so damn glamourous/flawless. I often used to trawl through the beauty pages of magazines to find out what products were worth spending my hard earned cash on.
I found Lollipop26's videos so useful because a) she has a look and style that I would aspire to and b) she gives honest opinions on whether products actually deliver on what they say they can do. I also liked the fact that she often gives you budget versions of different products i.e. MAC Studio Fix Fluid vs. Revlon Colourstay foundation. Every girl loves a bargain!
Through her YouTube channel, I then started to read her blogspot, which I have been religiously reading for quite a while...I felt the need to create my own blog so I could share my thoughts and experiences of products that I have been using and whether they have performed well. In light of this recession we are in, us girls need to know what products are worth spending our dosh on!
Don't get me wrong, there may be some rambly posts here and there about random stuff like clothes, shoes or basically what kind of day I've had but I think people also enjoy reading about that kind of thing...I know I do.
