  • Chin chin!

  • Hello, everybody! Today I wanted to do something that I've never done before on this channel

  • and it's a style of video that I have seen a lot of recently and I really enjoy watching them

  • So I was like "Well, yeah I'm gonna do that, I'm gonna film that"

  • 'Cause I think you guys would find it really useful and also I don't know there's something about them that I find enjoyable so maybe you

  • will too. And it's the kind of video where, um, Youtubers kind of sit down and chat through

  • things they've either been kindly gifted, or that they've purchased that are new on the beauty scene.

  • Some of the things I get sent never get shared with you when in actual fact you could've seen it and gone

  • ''That would have been perfect for me, damnit!'', which I think it's kind of the purpose for these types of videos so I get to show you them before I've tried them

  • and it's kind of a first impressions/this is what's new out kind of video!

  • I'm not gonna sit here and talk through a huge disclaimer

  • I feel like we're all grown up enough around here now

  • and we all know how this works.

  • Not showing off, not being paid, blah blah blah.

  • That was my disclaimer. Best disclaimer on the internet!

  • So, without further ado,

  • these are some things that I have received

  • recently that I wanted to share with you that I'm super excited about.

  • The first handful of things are from Too Faced,

  • which you guys know is one of my favourite brands,

  • and whenever I receive a package from them, I get so excited

  • because I feel like their, um, releases are really innovative,

  • they always look adorable and I actually genuinely get excited to see what they've done next.

  • And when this arrived, I wanted to cry with joy.

  • I was so excited.

  • This is the Too Faced "Sweet Peach - Smells Like Peaches!" palette.

  • Firstly, I love the Too Faced palettes, anyway.

  • Nala?

  • I just heard her. Where is she?

  • I love the consistency of the eyeshadows.

  • I love how easily they blend and I love the colour-combinations that they come up with.

  • Let alone the fact that each palette has, like, a kind of theme to it.

  • So they've had chocolate-scented palettes, they've had peanut butter and jelly-scented palettes,

  • which is one of my faves.

  • Oh my god, I haven't put that in a Favourites.

  • So you can guess what this smells like.

  • Smells of peaches.

  • I don't know what benefit a scented eyeshadow has,

  • besides the fact that it's kind of quite novelty and it makes it a little bit more interesting.

  • Because I have blue eyes, this is the sort of palette that I go crazy for,

  • because anything with slightly orange-y undertones to it brings out the blue in my eyes.

  • So when I saw this palette with all its, like, gorgeous shades, like,

  • Bellini is just beautiful.

  • Luscious looks amazing.

  • There are always a couple of colours in a palette that I - I probably wouldn't use that much.

  • So for me it's the purples down this end.

  • But the rest are so beautiful and I think that this would be so lovely with a tan, like after holiday.

  • So I think this is for sure going on holiday with me.

  • You have no idea the temptation of leaving these things in the packaging,

  • so that I could film this video to show you.

  • Before ripping the packaging off and using it.

  • Also have these.

  • This the "Sweethearts Blush", um, in Sparkling Bellini.

  • I believe I have one of these, but it is not in the peach shades.

  • Um, it looks like this.

  • In fact, you guys have seen me use the other one of these that I had quite a lot,

  • because I do like it.

  • Um, but look how gorgeous the colours are in this.

  • Again with a tan on holiday, this is just gonna be beautiful!

  • I'm so excited about this.

  • So very excited - ooh!

  • Bronzer!

  • Says "a bronzer baked with love."

  • So these are ...

  • "Created with two shades that combine for a multi-dimensional, radiant bronze that always looks natural."

  • "Or use each sh-shade alone for a luminous, contoured bronze."

  • Just love the packaging!

  • Ooh!

  • It's just - I don't - like, ever want to destroy the Too Faced packaging, it's so beautiful.

  • Really lovely bronzer colours, though.

  • Love that!

  • Excited to try that.

  • Now this seemed very interesting to me.

  • This is a "Mascara Melt Off Cleansing Oil - Waterproof Mascara Dissolver."

  • I don't wear a lot of waterproof mascara, only because ...

  • ... of the huge amounts of effort it takes to try and get it off at the end of the day.

  • Um,

  • And also there's just not one that I love,

  • apart from this one, which I'll be showing in a minute.

  • But this has such a cool, like, concept.

  • So, get out packaging.

  • Looks like this, so it's in a tube.

  • And, you actually brush it through your lashes to, like, dissolve the mascara off your lashes.

  • I think that's genius!

  • Firstly, just because - I mean, I haven't used it, so I don't know if it works.

  • But, firstly, just because, you know when you're really trying to get waterproof mascara off?

  • You end up really rubbing your eye. Like, rubbing it raw, sometimes.

  • So, I think something like this could,

  • essentially be exactly what we need.

  • You literally put it on like a mascara, and then, like, gently rub it away.

  • And I just feel like it - it does that vigorous bit instead.

  • D'you know what I mean?

  • That didn't make any sense.

  • As I mentioned, didn't have a waterproof mascara that I loved,

  • until Too Faced decided to make Better Than Sex - which is one of my fave mascaras - waterproof.

  • Just,

  • Generally, I'd love to know in what circumstances you choose to wear a waterproof mascara over a regular mascara.

  • Is it because you do swimming classes? Is it because you do exercise?

  • Is it because you are outside quite a lot, so if it rains?

  • I don't know.

  • I'd just like to know in what circumstance you would be like "Better wear my waterproof!"

  • If you're going to watch a sad film?

  • I have actually used this.

  • I used this the other day, because I was too impatient and I wanted to see if it was similar to Better Than Sex.

  • Which it is.

  • Amazing.

  • I really like this.

  • Obviously just a lot more difficult to get off.

  • And the last thing by Too Faced,

  • that I have to show you is this, which is the Too Faced "Royal Oil - Coconut Oil Body Bronzer."

  • With mangosteen extract.

  • Wow.

  • Again, like, holiday-tastic.

  • Is that a word?

  • Oh god, that's like the lamest thing I've ever said.

  • How does this work? Is that a stopper?

  • Okay ...

  • Oh my god, it smells of holiday.

  • Anything with that, like, amazing coconut smell just - oh, I love it.

  • This would be perfect for arms and legs.

  • If you're going to an evening event, so.

  • There you go!

  • O.P.I. nail polish.

  • Now I actually think O.P.I. is an amazing brand for nail polish.

  • My mum - who works with nails, she's like a nail beautician or nail technician, or whatever it's called,

  • she always uses O.P.I.

  • O.P.I. are her favourites.

  • And they have released a "Soft Shades Pastel Collection."

  • So there's six different shades in here.

  • Um, you've got a gorgeous baby blue, which is called I Am What I Amethyst.

  • Huh?

  • The next one is this kind of pastel yellow, and that's called One Chic Chick.

  • Then we've got this gorgeous pastel mint,

  • which I think I might have to paint my nails this colour once I end this video.

  • And this is This Cost Me A Mint. I like that.

  • This one, which is a really pretty pastel kind of peachy pink and that's Stop I'm Blushing.

  • This one, which is a pastel blue. Awh, it's called It's A Boy!

  • And this one, which is a kind of milky white. And that's called It's In The Cloud.

  • So if you're anything like me, and you like more pastel shades,

  • I think you're gonna really love the colours in that collection.

  • O.P.I., I think, were just feeling extremely generous,

  • Um, they've also sent me their collection,

  • which coincides with the launch of the Alice Through The Looking Glass film,

  • which I think is coming out next month.

  • And some of these colours are really, really lovely.

  • This pink one is called Mad For Madness Sake.

  • Then you've got this sort of dark fuschia, which is What's The Hatter With You?

  • This beautiful shimmery gold, which is A Mirror Escape.

  • An electric blue, which is called Fearlessly Alice, which I actually think is my favourite shade

  • out of all of these. I love this so much.

  • Then we've got this sort of pearlescent colour, which is called Oh My Majesty.

  • Um, this really gorgeous red, which is Having A Big Head Day.

  • Pastel purple, which is called I'm Gown For Anything.

  • And again this really lovely powder blue, which is called The I's Have It.

  • As well as that, they've also sent me a special edition colour, which is like

  • a grey with little strands of silver in it.

  • And this is called What Time Isn't It?

  • Eh? Eh?

  • There we go.

  • Lots of new shades from O.P.I.

  • How am I gonna decide what colour to paint my nails after this video?

  • The next few things are from Benefit and they are new Hoola products.

  • Now, Hoola is - I would say, a lot of people's staple bronzer or contour shade.

  • Personally, I love it. I think it works really, really well.

  • And they have brought out these.

  • Hoola Zero Tan Lines for body.

  • "The believable all over body bronzer."

  • Sounds good to me.

  • I just love Benefit packaging, like, look at this.

  • Oh my god, it has a hula skirt!

  • It has a freaking hula skirt.

  • So it just says "squeeze gel onto sponge." Where's the sponge?

  • *gasp* Oh, okay. That's such a cool concept.

  • Okay, so you have the product in here. And this screws on, so this is the cap.

  • But then you pull this off and you've got a sponge.

  • And then I'm guessing -

  • - so nearly just spilled my apple juice everywhere.

  • So I'm guessing you squeeze some of this onto the sponge and then you can kind of work it into the body.

  • That's so cool! I'm, like, really impressed with that.

  • I love when it starts getting to spring and summer and all the, like,

  • make-up and, like, beauty collections become really like summery.

  • Like this is such a summery product, it makes me so excited.

  • So as well as that, they also have a "Hoola Bronzing and Contour Brush."

  • Wow!

  • Oh, it feels like really nice quality. Look at it, it's like bamboo.

  • And then it has, like, green tips. It's so soft.

  • I love that.

  • And we also have "Dew The Hoola."

  • Again, it looks a little piece of bamboo.

  • Rose-gold bamboo, my favourite kind.

  • Bronzing liquid.

  • "Smoothing effects and lightweight texture melt in for a shimmerless, natural look that’s so sheer and seamless,

  • "you get the glow without the gleam. Hoola!"

  • "So you just smooth it over bare skin or over your foundation." Cool!

  • So I guess it's to give you a little bit more colour. Just to bronze you up slightly.

  • I am digging this packaging. I love it.

  • Also have some new bits from Urban Decay which, again, is one of my fave brands.

  • So the first thing is the Urban Decay "Naked Skin One & Done - Hybrid Complexion Perfector."

  • So this is an "optical blurring, luminous finish."

  • in the colour Medium Light.

  • "It combines the benefits of a sheer foundation with the coverage of a tinted moisturizer and our high-tech,

  • weightless formula feels amazing on your skin."

  • "One & Done provides all-day wear and covers a wide range of skintones, but the best part is how it transforms

  • the look of your skin. Light diffusing spheres immediately help make flaws seem to disappear."

  • Oh, okay.

  • So I'm guessing this has a light coverage.

  • I love this packaging.

  • Think I'm gonna need a couple of good skin days to properly test this out.

  • The, um, formulation feels really nice.

  • I can imagine this makes your skin look really dewy and healthy.

  • Oh, it does feel like I have nothing on my hand.

  • It's gone!

  • It doesn't feel like I've anything on my hand. Wow!

  • Okay, I'm really excited to give that a try!

  • Next thing we have from Urban Decay is their "Beached Bronzer."

  • Oh, look at the packaging! It's got little palm trees on it.

  • I love that.

  • And there you go.

  • Really nice bronzer shade.

  • It's matte as well, so if you like a matte bronzer, this is right up your alley.

  • And it's in the shade Bronzed.

  • And last but not least, I have a highlighter in the shade Fireball.

  • I really like the Urban Decay, um, highlighters.

  • This is an "Afterglow" highlighter.

  • Oh!

  • Oh my goodness.

  • I love that you're getting to experience my initial excitement over products.

  • This - this looks insane.

  • This is an "8-Hour Powder Highlighter", but the colour is so pretty!

  • It looks like a peachy version - oh my god - it's like a peachy version of -

  • I am obsessed with this.

  • It's got, like, an iridescent kind of pink to it, but it's peach.

  • So it's like the colour is peach, but the iridescence in it is like this really lovely baby pink.

  • And it reminds me a little bit of my "Tease" blu - of my "Tease" highlighter from Estée Lauder.

  • Which, I wish they would bring out again.

  • Estée Lauder, if you are watching this, please bring "Tease" out again in a limited edition,

  • or just bring it out as permanent, because it's too beautiful not to.

  • And mine is running low, but this kind of reminds me of it!

  • It gives, like, the same, really lovely pink-y highlight.
