I’m currently subscribed to 95 youtube channels. At least 60 of those are beauty-centric.
I’m in the process of cutting down the list as part of an overall life simplification project that I seem to be working on since forever. In my defense, this type of project is a lifelong undertaking.
As I weed through the list, I’m reminded of the awesomeness of not so famous youtube channels that I really love watching. If you like candid vlogs that are less perky-cutesy (???), check out the people in my list :D
I found most of them by searching for lipstick reviews and live swatches. I’ll share 3 to 5 (and maybe 1 non-beauty channel) at a time and hopefully I can follow-through with this thing. Here’s my first batch of three (in no particular order):
If you’re a lipstick lover and you like your lipstick collection to have a variety of colors, you NEED to subscribe to Jess (NOW!). She’s awesome and she’s probably one of the few people who feels the way I feel about lipsticks — I feel the lipstick love, Jess! I found my top 2 favorites because of her (Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte and Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope).
This is the video that got me to subscribe — My Favorite Vampy Lipsticks:
And here’s her recent one on the Nars Audacious Lipsticks:
Nomadic Makeup is run by Faith. If you’re not struck by how pretty she is, I want to know what pretty looks like to you. I found her channel when I was searching for fellow NARS Stromboli-toned bloggers and vloggers. If she says a particular foundation matches her, I can buy it online blindly.
Faith is a makeup artist and I think she still works for MAC. She colors her brows all different colors (always done tastefully) and her eyeshadow looks are also as mind blowing. In real life, she probably looks like a gorgeous walking and talking art installation.
This woman has good taste with somewhat of a sophisticated tomboy vibe. Confusing, I know. Watch a few of her vlogs and you’ll see what I mean.
I find Chelsea really funny. She seems like the type of person who can tell a totally hilarious joke while keeping a straight face.
I can never forget the story behind why she doesn’t wear gloss.
So, I mean, that’s why I look at myself in the mirror if I’m wearing a really glossy perfect lip and I’m just like — you once covered yourself in human shit… for fun!
When I wear gloss, I kind of almost laugh at myself… like “ehhh, you’re trying too hard.”
That’s how I feel about glossy lips (on me). Plus, of course, how high maintenance glossy lips are. Chelsea is the one to blame for my love of matte lipsticks and for my thing with NARS Mascate.
More Philippine-based bloggers are trying out beauty vlogging. It’s something that’s not for me (for now or forever) but I’m excited for what the future holds for the Pinoy Beautube Community.
If you know other youtubers like Jess, Chelsea, and Faith, type it in the comments section! I’d love to check them out.
