Black Women On YouTube

You've seen me say it countless times, I watch a lot of YouTube. A lot. It's replaced TV for me. So you could imagine the different type of people I've come across in efforts to keep things fresh. On this 'journey' it wasn't long before I saw the vast difference between the number of Caucasian YouTubers and those that more like me. I can only refer to the Beauty Community on YouTube since I don't regularly watch any other genre.

Thankfully, more and more persons are finding the courage to join this Community every day. Hopefully that also means that in time we'll be more substantially represented. And more than that, be successful too...cause if we were to get into the demographics of who really 'makes it' you'd see a common thread all over again.

Anyho, I just wanted to note some black women I'm subscribed to. If you don't see someone you watch let me know in the comments. Though, lemme warn ya, I've stopped watching a couple Sistuhs for one reason or another...*cough* sell outs *cough* - No, but seriously; some people yuh spirit just doan tek dem. Knawmean?

In order of how they appear in my subscription manager...click the names to be taken to their respective channels.


Everybody ain't for everybody so it does come down to personal preference. Let me know who are your favourites.

p.s. Moden Makeup is on YouTube too!

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

With Key Ingredients:

Purified Lactic Acid: One of the most hydrating Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Lactic Acid exfoliates the surface layers of t…

It's A Dupe!

Long time no dupe.

Corny? I know. I try.

Faithful readers would have seen me rave about the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, a.k.a Face Cement, numerous times. Well, we have a dupe: The Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer. I knew it instantly. So instantly that I've used the MUFE twice and decided that it's ridiculous to keep both since they are the same.

You can read all about the Becca primer in the link above so I'm just going to talk about the MUFE version here.

Can you tell which is which? No? Well, neither can I.
