June Beauty Favorites

You guys … I vlogged. And, it’s kind of terrifying and hilarious all at the same time.

I’ve been talking about venturing into the world of beauty vlogging for a while now, so I finally bit the bullet, got over my anxiety, and hit record on the camera.

Now, before I become the laughing stock of the blogosphere and YouTube, let’s please keep in mind a couple things:

1. I have absolutely no clue what I’m doing – I’m trying something new, and with trying something new always comes a learning curve.

2. Refer to #1 before you make any nasty, inappropriate comments. I would hope that we all are encouraging individuals when someone tries something new, but you just never know. I’m, of course, open to constructive criticism and will take any suggestions that you may have!

Now that we got that out of the way, onto my video debut! All products mentioned are listed at the end of this blog post. Enjoy!

    Ah! I need to watch it when I'm not at work! πŸ™‚ I do like the NYX Butter Gloass in Creme Brulee. I had another color and didn't like it but the Creme Brulee is perfect. Thanks for linking up, Karly!

    I'm totally bummed I'm going to miss out going to Hayward this summer! πŸ™ I love it up there, but I'm not about to get stuck having this baby up there!! I can't remember the last time I haven't gone up there for the 4th, enjoy it if you are headed up there!

    Haha, leave it to me to be totally dramatic! But, I was ridiculously nervous and wanted to cover myself just in case it totally bombed. πŸ™‚ Thank you!

    You're so sweet, thank you! Yes, I hope one of these days we can make an in-person meetup happen. I assume you're not going to be in Hayward this weekend? I can't wait for you to try the lip products, they are SO good.

  12. 7.2.15

    Thank you SO much!

  13. 7.2.15

    I agree that even the light palette is a bit dark depending on your skin tone! Thank goodness you can still get your hands on the NYX products – they are amazing!

  14. 7.2.15

    You are so sweet, thank you! I was so nervous, hence why my voice and facial expressions are a bit spastic lol. I hope you made it to Target (and back home) okay!

  15. 7.2.15

    Thank you! I cannot wait to get more butter glosses – those things are amazing!

    I think you did a great job πŸ™‚ the NYX butter glosses are my fave!

  21. 7.1.15

    Karly!! Loved!!! You did a fantastic job and you looked beautiful. It is nice to hear your voice too. Thank you for a sharing your reviews on these products too. I think that I'll stop by the downtown Target after my appointment and check them out. I just need to remember that I have to get on the bus to get home so wish me luck that I don't buy too much lol. Have a great day lady! πŸ™‚

    Yay your video was amazing!! I'm kicking myself a little bit for not picking up that concealer palette last weekend. I almost did but it looked like even the light shade might be a bit too dark for me without a tan. Love that butter gloss shade and I'm so happy I found a place that sells the full line in Toronto so I can repurchase!
