  1. Whenever I watch these wonderful videos of yours, I can just say that I get goosebumps and a lump to my throat..and then I CRY!
    Thanks for the hard work and sweet heart you put in everything you do!

  2. Hi Emily,

    You mean NYC blushable cream stick? Because NYX does not have cream stick..or NYX cream blush?

  3. Loved watching this video..you did a great job putting it all together, can't wait for the other ones! I commented on your youtube as well but I'm twiggskitty there..just to confuse things :)

  4. Loved the video Emily!!! I like your editing...and the intro with your cat. Too cute! I am going to have to pick up one of thoese Rimmel bronzers!

  5. Smashbox Photofinish Light I got a free sample of these and I love it next time i go to sephora I'm gonna buy it. Great post :)

  6. Great vid! Cupcake is adorable! Awesome review on the products. You are always honest with each item.

    Now I have a product I want you to try. I recently bought some makeup from Sleek cosmetics. They are based in the UK. I got their I Divine Storm palette and Rose Gold blush. Let me tell u girlfriend! High end pigmentation but drug store price! Check them out, you won't be sorry!

  7. Great pics! A few faves of mine too.

  8. these videos are so helpful, thanks emily!

  9. Aw super! So glad to hear you speak of Smashbox Photo Finish Primer so highly! I just bought the 'light' version the other day so I'm hoping it works out for me :-)

    Great post and great video too.
    Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts on these products.

  12. I think you showed N.Y.C. blushable creme stick not NYX? Thanks for the recommendations. I'm off to buy some stuff at Walmart and Target :).

  13. Hey Emily..

    I LOVE your videos and your product reviews and the way you talk about all the products. I love how you are so honest about your opinions.even mentioning about the price range. You are one of my favorite beauty guru.

    Hehe such an inspiration.

    have a nice day.
    P.S. your cat's cute... wanna pat her/him..

  14. Emily,

    I was wondering if you ever sell any of the makeup that you may not use a lot or that you may just be getting tired of. If so, please let me know. I so love watching your videos. Great stuff.

  15. Hi Emily
    I stumbled upon your youtube channel while looking for ways to organize my makeup.
    I started checking back and surfing around.
    I really enjoy your reviews and videos
    Thanks so much for taking the time to do them

    if you have a second stop by my blog sometime



  16. Thanks so much for putting these together! I have been debating on the Dream Mousse concealer for awhile but based on your recommendation I picked it up today. Hope I love it as much as you do :)
