To Anyone Who Ever Wondered...

Hey everyone! 
Hope everyone had a great 4th of July! I'm looking forward to a fun weekend with family. When I got up this morning and checked YouTube, I was greeted with this lovely comment:

I responded with this: 

(clarification: they would have to click my link & buy something for it to matter, FYI)

Then I got fired up, so I added this:


No more explanation needed! Have a wonderful weekend!
Emily

  1. Don't let them get to you!! You are amazing at what you do. You are a true inspiration to people like me who have a passion but have always been afraid to try it. Haters gonna hate...but there are WAY more of us that love you!!

  2. Hi Emily,

    I really like this post because I'm glad that you are still a very honest person when it comes to your reviews. You have a passion for makeup and it's so obvious that I'm surprised that this person would say otherwise. I'm also glad that you decided to stay true to yourself and not accept money in exchange for some reviews.

    You are still my favorite youtuber and I like your honesty.

    Thanks for remaining the same.
    Much love,
    Your fan!

  3. Haters will be haters, and they really are just fans in disguise. What I can't seem to understand is the need to leave negative comments like that when if you don't like the content of the person's videos, all you have to do is STOP WATCHING IT!

    Anyways, anyone who has been following you for a long time should know that you are a huge Mally fan, and was so genuinely excited when you got to meet her that you cried! That has nothing to do with sponsorship. I think you are super genuine, I love you, Tyler, Cupcake and the whole gang! Remember that you're making videos for the fans, not the haters anyways, so their views are irrelevant. Happy 4th Emily! -Oranjuse

  4. well said. I don't understand ppl that don't like a thing but they're unable to just ignore and forget, they have to bitch about and to make bad comments. Perhaps their live is not interesting enough to focus on it and must waste it on others live & things...

    About you not talking about drugstore anymore is just absurd to hear LOL ( if I ever visit USA one hightlight to visit is gonna be walmarts hahahahahh

  5. Emily, I'm so sorry you have to deal with that kind of crap. I can well relate. I am a book and product reviewer and we constantly get accused of being paid to give only good reviews, which is a total load of BS.

    I'm glad you gave these people a piece of your mind! The only thing we can do to combat lies and rumors is keep bringing the truth.

    Sending you some hugs this morning.

  6. You hang in there, Emily. You know your own truth and where your integrity lies. Keep up your great work!!

  7. You are my favorite makeup guru on YouTube and I really can't believe people would doubt your intentions. Keep doing your thing and keep being awesome!

  8. I don't understand why anyone would accuse you so blatantly without any proof... Just because you speak positively of something that isn't exactly cheap suddenly makes you dishonest? What? Just, no.

  9. I'm sorry Emily. I think it's great that you get to do what you love and that you are honest about it. Thank you for that.

  10. Emily, you are an inspiration to so many of us. Don't let one negative person get under your skin. You don't have to explain yourself to anyone.

  12. I have not been a youtube watcher for long, but I'm taken back by the things that people feel free to say to others. My goodness! I'm so sorry Emily, I'm so tired of seeing people bashing others here it makes me so sad for the hard work you all do to get video's out to us....
    It is not my business or concern who you pick to sponsor you. I just watch you cause you are good at what you do.
    Hugs,

  13. I couldn't disagree more with the original commentor! I love watching your videos (and I loved meeting you at IMATS in NY this year, the highlight of my day :), and sometimes, (and this is in NO way a criticism) I wish you would do a few more looks using high end makeup. But you have totally re-opened the world of drug store makeup for me and regardless of what brands or price points of the products you are using I think you make incredible videos with fantastic reviews and tutorials. Sounds like that commentor got up on the wrong side of the bed!

  14. You go emily!!

  15. Emily, you are probably one of the most honest beauty youtubers out there and if some people can not see that, then that is their problem. Some people think that because there is a computer screen hiding them, that they can say whatever they want,even if it hurts the other person or not. I bet you anything that would never say that to your face. Try not to let it get you down this weekend and enjoy your weekend. :)

  16. Oh silly misinformed people trying to get attention for something they have no clue about.

    YOU are AMAZING and your videos are AWESOME!!! Don't listen to those guys - thanks for clarifying, but you didn't need to. Your real viewers are BEHIND YOU 100%!!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Sometimes when someone is lucky enough to do what they love and make a living at it people are jealous and want to knock you down. As women we should be all about lifting each other up! I love your videos and not for one minute do I think you don't give it to us straight. You offer opinions on a wide range of products and we can choose drug store or high end. I think you are an inspiration for women to go for your dreams and enjoy you life and what you do! I also like that you put so much effort into your videos and I think you deserve to be compensated for that however the crazy youtube world works!

  18. Emily, I think for every person like that, there are 10 people like me: a year or two ago, I was a makeup novice, and now, thanks to you and your recommendations, I wear and love makeup that's right for me, that helps me look like a better version of myself. And it doesn't take hundreds of dollars or time I don't have to do it. I have recommended your videos more than once (http://ask.metafilter.com/243105/First-time-photoshoot-how-can-I-not-look-like-a-dumpy-tired-platypus#3529855) and I am so thankful that I can trust your opinion - even if I will never wear false eyelashes! ;)

  19. Oh Em, As a youtuber myself I know how much work goes into filming, editing, uploading etc. I often say to others that you are one of the most hardworking youtubers out there and that your reviews are the utmost honest and well researched. I love how you are a wet n wild ambassador but aren't afraid to tell your viewers if a product isn't worth picking up! I am a sigma affiliate too..does that mean I only use and talk about sigma brushes?? NO! and neither do you....didn't you just talk about elf brushes at length the other day?? I think I've gotten a little fired up here too lol. Point being you work hard, are completely honest and unfortunately there are rude people in the world who like to bring others down to somehow bring themselves up.....We love you Emily you have one of the most sincere youtube followings, keep up the great work girl!

  20. Your loyal followers don't doubt your integrity. I think you've always made it clear when you receive complimentary products. If people pay attention, they'll see you are critical of some of those products, rather than presenting them with some deceptive positive spin. Have a great weekend with your family!

    ReplyDelete
  21. As I was just reading your Mally blogpost, I was thinking how in depth it was. How before you wrote that you had been writing for two hours, I was thinking, "Wow! This must of taken her forever to research and write." Especially with the fact you were preparing your home for company. There has to be a balance with everything in life. We need you to review high end products to see how they compare to drugstore ones. Sometimes, the fact is, the high end products are worth it. Before watching your videos, I would only shop at department stores for makeup. I didn't know any better and thought that was where the best quality and service was. You opened a whole perspective and I feel I have you as my own personal beauty expert. I know you must feel awful reading these things and feel the need to defend yourself. Know that to your loyal readers/watchers, you don't have to. I hope you are enjoying your weekend with your family! Thanks for everything!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Anyone who has watched your videos knows that your reviews and advice are genuine, that's why you have so many loyal followers. When I am shopping for makeup or getting ready for a night out, I turn to your blog or YouTube channel because I trust everything you have to say, as do most people.

  23. I've been watching for a very long time. I don't think your channel has changed THAT much. The cameras have gotten better and you've incorporated some staple series into your channel but I don't see how it's changed beyond a woman talking about products. It's not like you're pushing anything.

    ReplyDelete
  24. People that leave nasty comments like that are terrible..

    Em, you are my favorite beauty guru because you aren't fake like some. You're very kind and genuine and keep doing what you do best despite what jerks say because you have more supporters than haters and we have your back!! :)

    Also, I can't even imagine having you lie to us... You never have, and I don't think you ever will, after all, honesty is the best policy right? And all you want to do is expand your own knowledge and get creative with cosmetics and help us along the way...
    Don't let them get under your skin, you're amazing!

    Love ya! <3 :)

  25. Emily, How appropriate that this falls on 4th of July weekend. Home of the Free and The Brave. One has the freedom to express your thoughts and also to CLICK onto another website. Sad that people take the low road to write/post nasty comments. The people that like your videos will continue to click and stay tuned...for those that choose to take the low road and write negative comments...well that's their freedom but sad it's lived in negative vibe.

  28. Some people just love to hate, I dont understand it. Especially since I know you personally and now how true and down to earth you are. Beautiful both inside and out.

  29. People are going to hate. You have always been honest and up front. There are all types of make up out there and so what if you sometimes use a higher end product.

  30. Don't let people get to you. Your true fans know that you are genuine.

  31. I absolutely love your videos! People put other down because of jealousy, heck if I could quit my current job (medical receptionist for a Cardiologist) to do what your are, I would, but who would I be kidding! Your videos are so original, and I love that the products your talk about/review are so well researched. I truly value your opinion on the products you review and I know your opinion is real and genuine! Keep up the excellent work. I'm already anticipating your next video, and as soon as it's posted, I'll be watching!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Girl, let me tell you this (: I've watched a lot of beauty videos from a lot of different people and you are not only the most helpful and professional guru out there but you are definitely the most down to earth. Don't stress the critics, they just want to spread negativity for the sake of bringing attention to themselves.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Emily you are amazing and this is garbage. I always check your videos for the actual reviews of things before I buy them. Even when you have had products sent to you, if you don't like it, you say so. Your videos are always my favorite and guide me in my purchases! Keep your head up buttercup.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Emily! I love your reviews and videos. If someone wants to be ignorant and push their truth out there without knowing what is really going on the failure is in them. You have always been a nice blend of drugstore and high end items. I live that! Have a great weekend!

  36. The only thing UNBEARABLE here is that people have nothing better to do with their time than spew false info online. I think you are AMAZING!

  37. Some people need to get a good smack on the head with the biggest powder brush I have. You don't need to justify yourself, they should keep their noses in their own business and let you do what you are so good at. It's just jealousy, pure jealousy and nothing more. It's sad, actually :(

  38. You don't have to justify yourself because the people who really love you and your work, know who you are <3

  41. Emily,

    I saw this comment on the video before I saw this blogpost and I just want to say good for you for setting this person straight:)

    ReplyDelete
  42. You're probably my favorite beauty guru I watch, and I watch quite a few of them, but I consistently watch every one of your videos when they come out. I love how honest you are about products and you give such in-depth information on it. That's what a real beauty guru should do. I could care less though if a video is sponsored or not. It comes with the territory and people shouldn't be offended if a video is or isn't sponsored. I love your videos, Emily. Keep up the great work and don't let the haters get to you :)

  43. Hmmm I wonder if this person even does videos. I subscribed to you because you use mainly drugstore. I value honest opinions on products and not because it is sponsored. I say remain true to yourself and YOUR channel! Keep up the good work :)

  46. "itchy nose" already sounds like a troll Em, don't let these people get to you. They go around bashing everyone, at least what they tell you isn't about your appearance like I see on other beauty vloggers I watch.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I can't imagine that this person has actually spent any time at all watching your videos. If they had, they would know you were, and continue to be, one of the most genuine people on YouTube. "Unbearable"? Not even close - I have watched every single one of your videos, including your live ones (unfortunately, I can't watch them streaming at work, so I have to wait until evening), and I still get excited every time I see a new video posted. There will always be haters, but rest assured, there are plenty of us who really think you're something special. Keep up the great work, Emily. You ROCK!!

  48. Good Morning Emily,

    I just wanted to say that my daughter and I really appreciate your honest opinions whether they're high end or not.

    People are always going to find something to complain about, the important thing is to just continue to be you!

    Have a wonderful weekend,

  49. Emily! Your vids are my absolute hands down favorite videos to watch, and I check your blog every week. You are so honest, informative, and passionate about makeup that I never doubt your judgement or motives at all. And you have never been, or ever will be a "cookie cutter" beauty vlogger.

    I would honestly be happy if you got paid from every brand, because this is your career and you are also my personal shopper. haha. You save me so much time and money that I would have spent on not-so-great products. The more companies that send you things, the more products we get to hear about. Your opinions are always your own, and your loyal viewers never doubt your motives :)

    You're amazing, and don't pay attention to the jealous people out there. I'm so proud that so many companies want you to test out their products. You deserve it!

    Happy 4th of July (belated) and happy weekend :)

  51. I've been watching beauty gurus on youtube for about five years now. I started out with a small group of three or four. Which includes you Emily. And over time I've stopped watching most of them. The only youtuber that I originally started out watching that I still watch? You Emily.

    Point being just continue being yourself. Anybody who watches you and loves you will continue to watch you. You're happy. You're down to earth. And you're very easy to relate to.

With three girls, husband, house, job and many other things, me time was almost none. Thanks!

  56. I think there are people who just want to hurt people. I believe these to be sad persons who's lives are a mess and get a thrill out of trying to bring someone down. In any case they said "these girls"...you are not a girl you are a woman. You seem very true to me and I believe your viewers know that you are. This person was just sad and untruthful.Keep up the great reviews and don't waste your time on the bad comments. We love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  58. Dear Emily,
    Like everyone said here, that was a completely uncalled comment on their part (whoever posted that on yahoo).
    You are always a joy to watch and I definitely feel like I can relate to you in your videos and your hunt for good deals and new treasures in makeup world.
    If anything, your videos became much better due to better technology available to us today. Also, due to your thoughtful editing and great personality. I think even in your old videos you were always true to yourself and were not afraid to speak up and share your opinions.
    I personally enjoy watching more "professional" youtube videos without too much useless and boring blabbing. If I see a video that has too much of "hey guuuuuuyyyssss whaazzuppp??? So I did this and this and this today, and omg I cannot say this product's name, and blah blah blah" for like 30 minutes. Who wants to see that???!
    So, the bottom line is you are doing just fine and kudos for standing up for yourself.
    <3

  64. Ok, can I just something that is REALLY annoying me.

    I am SO SO SO tired of all these people (minions?)telling you, "don't let these people get to you, they're just haters." Ummm...NO. That person was asking an honest question and providing a fair critique. Yes, Emily is a nice person, but she's also making money off of youtube and our views. That means in some respects, she's a business, and we have the right to critique her and ask questions the way we would a business. It's strange how people act like she's a best friend that they know personally.

    Emily, I appreciate the way you answered the question honestly, and how you addressed it here. You are one of the few gurus to actually address sponsorships, and that means so much. I don't think you should ever 'ignore' these kinds of comments and questions, as many of these comments imply. That will just make you look shady, unless it's a super negative critique and a true 'hater' comment. But thanks for addressing this!

  70. I love that you stand up for yourself and your viewers. You have never sounded to me like a talking advertisement but rather a person who really knows her stuff.

  76. Since when did an honest review become synonymous with a negative review for it to have any credibility ? Emily always says that she;s an ambassador of a brand Wet wild) or that a company sent her some stuff ( tarte/ Sigma ). Also, no one questions ladies that like avon products and become their salesperson. So why does someone grudge miss Eddington when she wants to make a few bucks by becoming an affiliate of Sigma , a brand she honestly likes ? Her reviews are nothing but honest . Yes, there are sme itmes that I didnt feel like we were on the same page but that;s because the product may react differently or that we are two differernt individuals. The anonimity of the internet coupled with ignorance , bigotry and jealousy truly brings out the beast in US> GO girl go.

  79. OK, this has really upset me! I cannot believe that someone would say these things about you, Emily!!! I have been watching your videos for a long time, and I can honestly say that you have NEVER changed or "sold out" to a company. You always do your best to represent both high end and drugstore products, and you always give your honest opinion. If it's high end and it doesn't work, then you let us know! Same thing for drugstore products. THANK YOU for being genuine and honest, and don't let people like this get you down. If the person making this comment really watched your videos, then he/she would know that their accusations are completely false! Some people are just jealous! Much love to you!!!

  80. You are actually one of the very few gurus whose opinions I trust. Because you give off a very sincere and charismatic personality which I love and admire.

    My only criticism is that your makeup tutorials feel to be very similar. It's seems like the same look but with different colors pretty much. Which I don't mind, I just don't prefer to watch those videos.

    But I love your reviews/hauls/monthly favs and of course your famous Emily Awards! I gotta hand it to you when it comes to creativity, you are one of the best! Please don't let the bad apples put you down :)

  81. Hi Emily!

    I just wanted to add my voice to the crowd. Of all the great YouTube channels that I watch, you are the hands down the person I trust the most. I know you have integrity and would always disclose any information should it change.

    I've been watching your videos for about 4 and a half years since I was looking for ideas for my wedding makeup. I've learned so much from you and really appreciate all the time and effort you've put into building up Beauty Broadcast.

    You're the best :)

  82. Wait a second, you're getting hate for expanding your knowledge and trying other brands that are not drugstore? Last I checked, that is what you do for us, you try other brands/products, you test them, review them, show us how you use them and give us your feedback. You try these products out and let us know if it is worth for us to buy? That is the whole point, right?

    Why are so many people just nit-picking on everything people do lately? This is your blog, and your YT channel, and you can buy/try and talk about whatever you like.

    The upside is that you are making it clear. I think (not with you btw) some people start getting confused by what is real information or what is sponsored information from their YT guru's. You have always been the one constant on YT (for me at least) who has always been truth and authentic. I think you touched on this before, but I think this is a good topic for an informational video on YT. Maybe it is something you could talk about with us and explain your decision making with what you decide to talk about.

    I think in your shoes, for anyone to discredit you like that, really takes a toll because you have invested years of your life into blogs and videos. It is one thing to say "I don't like her lipstick", but to knock down something that is such a big part of your life is just disheartening.

    We all heart you Em, and the people who watch your videos know that you are still a true, authentic beauty guru and we appreciate all your time and energy.

  87. I'm glad you let this out in the open. And why should it matter anyways if someone does have a sponsored video? It's one in pile of videos. Gosh, if you like a product you're going to rave bout it!

  88. I love you Emily! You are one of my favorites and I always look forward to your videos. I learn so much about different products drugstore and high-end and you always give it an honest review. I am a professional makeup artist and I value your opinion greatly.

  91. Emily, I feel as if you are one of the only great youtube "gurus" left. I truly enjoy your videos and blog posts daily. Thank you for being honest and trying out many different brands. While you have caused me to spend too much money (that is a compliment) I value your opinion. Keep it up! Much love to you. Abi

  93. Hi Emily.I've only been watching YT videos for abt 6 months now.You were the 1st channel I subscribed to.I've been through marathon session watching all your videos.U are very detailed,a pleasure to watch & genuine.A point to consider,if u were getting influenced,then how is it that the way u review products hasn't changed from your first video to your 830th video.How is it that your criteria to review drugstore & high-end products are the same?Ppl need to know to differentiate between genuine gurus who take time to put out information & those who just put out videos with no substance & just interested in getting hits n getting popular.Emily- you are doing a wonderful job and are a part of a lot of lives in a very positive way.Pls don't let some uninformed people get to you.Look forward to lots more from you.Good luck.As you say- virtual hug for you:)

  94. Emily, I'm glad you took up for yourself in this matter. I watch oodles of beauty videos on YT and you're one of the best. You're so open and honest with your product reviews and also in regard to your connection/relationship with the brands. Like all successful people you'll have critics who won't accept your honesty as the truth. Watching your videos and reading your blogs have helped me so many times when I'm undecided about purchasing a product. Your faithful viewers don't blindly follow you, we know those with integrity when we see/hear them. I, for one, know you're not into YT for the money. You've shared enough of your personal life with your viewers we know you could fare well outside of YT. I'm happy that you do make a living doing something that you enjoy. You make that very obvious with all I've seen and read from you. We love you and care alot about you but honestly we're selfish with our intentions. The benefits we gain from your in depth research and first hand experience with any number of products (drugstore & high end)make a difference in our pocketbooks. You're our own personal 'consumers digest'! Keep up the good work & your viewers will keep watching/reading!

  102. Hi Emily. I still can't understand why, with the whole sponsorship deal, there's such a huge urge to point fingers, or why some people have so much trouble believing others when they say they aren't sponsored. I recently was accepted as an affiliate for a company I really believe in, and I felt obligated to explain myself because of idiots like the one exemplified in your post. But you know what? I think one explanation is more than enough.

    You are honestly my favorite beauty YouTuber. I find your videos thorough yet entertaining, personal yet informative, and your personality sweet and kind. You are an inspiration to myself and, clearly according to other comments here and on your videos, many other people. You don't need to explain yourself to anyone, especially not countless times. It's their loss.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I love your channel!! I watch all your videos and I try to read all your blog posts. I really enjoy your take on things and trust your opinions. If I'm buying something, I always look to see if you have a video or blog post about the product. I must say, you're always spot on in my opinion. It's really cool how much passion and enthusiasm you have for makeup. You're seriously my favorite beauty guru. Don't frown over one person. For every hater, you have a thousand viewers that hang on to your every word. Keep up the good work. Can't wait to see your next video/blog post!

    ReplyDelete
  104. Hi Emily,
    I have watched many of your videos and I have never thought they came across like a sales pitch or like you are pushing a particular product because you are on the payroll or whatever. I always thought them to be very honest and extremely helpful. Don't let the trolls get you down. You are may favorite online beauty guru by far! <3 <3

  105. Dumb people! It's because you don't do those things they accuse you of that you are the ONLY youtube makeup person I really pay attention to! Keep doing what you are doing, girl!

  106. I trust your videos and opinion 100%, and I believe that you're the most professional guru on youtube. Others girls make such silly, mediocre videos and I always come back to yours because, simply put, they're the best. It was so kind of you to address the comment the way you did, and thank for always being so honest with your viewers.

  107. Who cares if you ever get sponsors. I would say go for it. They are not paying your bills.
    I love you Emily!

  108. Emily, you are (in my opinion) the only genuine person who is popular on You Tube. You are not a sell out, and your loyal fans know this. Also, you aren't stuck up and I love that about you! Keep doing you and we will keep watching! :)

  109. You go girl!

    I know it was unpleasant and probably took ages to draft replies, but well done to you.

  114. Holy crap, the message that was passed onto you was quite rude! And just so you know, I've been subscribed to your videos for a heck of a while now and have seen no change whatsoever, they're just as great as they've always been. Stuff like this pisses me of - the people picking on someone else about their channel are likely jealous.

  115. I consider you one of the most true and real gurus. I trust your opinion on everything beauty related! Like you said in your BBL last wednesday, you are an open book and I respect that. I love hearing all the good and bad about a product. Some people don't realize that lots of youtubers get paid either by youtube or other affiliates. But I know that would never affect your opinion. I love how people are getting so defensive in the comments because we actually see you as a friend! Internet friend that is!

  117. I find it interesting that people have nothing better to do with their time then to write mean things. You are and have always been adorable and honest. I of course do not know you personally but you can tell from your videos what you are like. You love your hubby. Your mom, your sister, your relatives. It's not phony. Don't let anyone bad comment get you down. You mean too much to the rest of us. You have saved me so much money on buying the right things, I am very grateful. You keep up the excellent work!

    ReplyDelete
  118. I know you have to deal with this frequently and it may be upsetting... but your energy is best spent making the quality videos and blog posts that you are truly known for. These disturbed, uninformed people don't deserve your time. Maybe a short video or blog post addressing the topic and putting it to rest might work for you. You can always reply to these types of comments with a link to that video or blog post and leave it at that. You're great, own it!

    ReplyDelete
  119. You are an honest person, it shows both on camera and in your blog posts. I value your opinions and I usually agree with what you say. BTW, I bought the daily value Mally set for my first Mally experience and I'm super excited! I also finally found the Taupe Takeover maybelline eyeliner and I LOVE it. I have blue eyes and it looks so good when I don't want the harshness of black or boring brown. You're awesome and I appreciate everything you put out there for us. Thank-You!

  122. So I know there are tons of comments on this post, but I felt like adding my two cents.
    Sometimes I do watch youtube videos and I feel like I'm watching a commercial. In that sense I kind of see where that original poster was coming from. It's hella frustrating to watch someone you used to feel like you could trust and all of the sudden they start showing a bunch of junk (and I mean junk in the truest sense) on their videos and I'm just supposed to buy (into) it.
    That's kind of how I feel when "gurus" show those subscription box videos. Not to name names, but there's a whole GROUP of girls who all of the sudden started showing the SAME products in the same week, obviously from their little boxes. THAT's the crap that annoys me.
    HOWEVER, in my humble opinion, Emily has never come off like a commercial or a sales pitch to me and I disagree COMPLETELY that's she's "lost her girl-next-door appeal."
    Emily, ignore these comments, humor them, take them with a grain of salt, it doesn't matter... What matters is the truth.
    Anyone who actually watches more than 1 video of yours can tell you still LOVE drugstore products and that you are totally honest with your reviews.
    I for one find your videos informative, entertaining and comforting like chatting with a girlfriend and will continue to watch them.


    PS - If I ever go insane and feel like spending $100 on some Sigma brush set (probably never) I will buy through your affiliate link because I think you deserve a few bucks because of the work you put into your videos.

  123. Oh em,don't listen to them. I love your videos! Especially because you made me realize I was a brand snob, now I love wet and wild and elf. Thanks for showing me how to put on eyeshadow and save money.

  131. How in the world could someone say that about you? To be honest you are one of the realest beauty youtuber's out there! Your reviews are ALWAYS ALWAYS honest and your videos never seem fake or "hyped" up like some of these girls "act" on there. I'm not saying anything about anyone who does beauty videos on youtube because they are all amazing and are wonderful at what they do and it's good that they want to share what they love with the world! I know one thing If I ever want a review on a product I always search your youtube videos first before I search the whole youtube website. If that doesn't say anything I don't know what does! (: Hope you had a great July 4th weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  132. Emily, I know that you are a level-headed, smart girl, and you won't let this ONE comment get to you when you have so many supportive fans! But in any case, just wanted to let you know that I love that you cover high end and low end brands. I'd rather hear from someone who tries L'oreal and Urban Decay and can tell me if it's really worth it to pay the extra bucks. A guru who hates on high end just because they aren't drugstore is as useless as a guru who hates on drugstore just because they aren't high end.
    And you have so much enthusiasm for the products that you use, there's no way that you are faking it when you really want to share a good product.
    Thanks for sharing your explanation with us, but to the true fans, you don't need to! You are AWESOME.

    ReplyDelete
  133. Emily, plain and simple you rock! I love all of your posts and video's whether they are high end or drug store. Keep on doing what you do best and please ignore the very small minority of people that have no other purpose than to justify their own means with negative- and in this case- highly misinformed judgments.

    Thanks for all that you do!

  134. I think your reviews are great, Emily. I appreciate your honesty and am grateful for your advice and opinions. You are easy to listen to, provide solid reviews and always make me smile. Just keep doing what you are doing :) You are great!

  135. YOU could not be more honest or upfront about the products you reveiw. Sometimes it takes me awhile to catch on to those that are being paid for their opinions but YOU are not one of them. I too like that you do both high and low end reveiws. I think you even tell us when you picked up a product yourself and when you are reveiwing one that was given to you. I also like that you give first impressions and then follow up with if it still works for you. You are so fantastic and what you do I am sure you will be snatched up by someone who will want to pay you for your services but YOU will let us know when and if that happens that is how you roll.

I definitely don't see any change in you and believe in your reviews are 100 % genuine . You have a true loving down to earth honest personality and it always shows. Sure there are "some" who are sponsored and have changed a bit but everyone to their own. I love your videos ..theres nothing fake or different about them then and now.everything about you is genuine and I'm really good at spotting fake personalities just from watching one video or when I first meet people. Keep doing what you do. People will always judge. Xoxox

  140. Great response! As a viewer, I do think the question of whether a beauty guru (or any reviewer/youtuber) you watch is honest in their reviews is an ever-present question. I'm really glad that you have made the decision to not do sponsored videos and let people know that. When I was (desperately) looking for makeup advice videos and deciding who to follow on YouTube, I considered that and where the person was coming from. I'm not in my teens or into celebrity trends--nor am I super girlie or want to get into super fancy makeup. I'm looking for straight-forward advice on how to get polished/professional/age-appropriate looks without spending a fortune. I'm a drugstore gal and absolutely love those hidden gems.

    You were actually THE FIRST beauty guru I started following. I've watched your techniques change and your videos evolve. I still love your videos, and I was delighted when you took BeautyBroadcast full-time!

  144. Emily, one thing (out of many things!) I like about your channel is that you don't do giveaways to promote products or bombard people with coupon codes and constantly direct people to shopping sites. I love that you don't have a PO box so people can send you things. I know every time you post a new video, it's going to be a "real" video, with the focus on your thoughts, ideas, opinions, and advice you want to share, not sponsored filler. Maybe those kinds of things work for some people but that has never seemed to be you, in fact your videos are so genuine, that's why you have so many viewers! You're awesome! Keep up the good work! ;)

  146. Emily just want to thank you for being honest. i've been following some local blogs of people i have actually met. i know they are getting products sent to them (hey free products i'm not hating) but i now find their blogs a bore as i feel they aren't honest with reviews. seriously every product sent to them can't be wonderful. i like that you give honest opinions and they aren't always saying products are great.

    thanks for being awesome! also you should come to Toronto for IMATs in the fall!

  147. Puh-LEASE... You absolutely raved about a <$10 makeup palette from Forever21, one that I owned and actually wrote off as being cheap and crappy. You gave that palette a chance and made me see how awesome it was. Are those the actions of a sellout?

  148. You are probably the most informative youtuber I watch and I believe that some gurus that have made it big have lost their spunk and their passion for their videos. You are definitely not one of them Emily! I can't imagine the other crazy comments you get but don't ever let them get to you. There are so many more of us that love you than there are of those who think negatively of you.

We trust you, and we LOVE your advice, thats why we tune into every video you post! I have been watching your videos ever since you first reviewed the ELF brushes. I get excited every time you post a new upload. You are my favorite Youtube Makeup GURU and honestly the only one I am subscribed to. You taught me how to apply makeup correctly, how to make my purchases worth cost efficient, and how to have confidence in myself. I know that we have never met but I consider you a friend and I have for the past 5 years. All of my friends say that I have the skills of a makeup artist and I always give you the credit. Thanks for teaching us about all things beauty, and for being so fun to watch! YOU ARE THE BEST! - Christie
