TESTING CELEBRITY BRANDS: What's Worth Buying??Mar 30, 2022
brandstoday and i'm wearing
whatis basically such a glam towel today hey guys how about welcome back or if you're new here welcome in general today we're going to be
celebritymakeup products specifically but i think it would be be Fun trying out the celebrity
brandsin general because they span a bunch of different categories so I have a couple of celebrities here that we're going to try or in some cases I'm going to share my experience with these products I think it's going to be fun, so if you want to see more of these make sure you give her a thumbs up so she knows and now let's dig into makeup and the first product i want to try is actually a new brand created by gwen stefani started a makeup line in the which launched a couple of different products I mean maybe 10 are sold through Sephora so I bought a couple of products to try and it's basically building a ca ra which looks a lot like her classic look so think like t the winged liner the bright red lip even the packaging is like very gwen stefani and the branding i think is dar but it's g x v e i think that's how you pronounce it though come on Let's check ok I checked that it's pronounced dar and apparently it's inspired by the way he used to sign his name in high school which I think is cool that's a cool detail so I wanted to start with the product that It's probably the highest rated of all the products you currently sell and that's your manual. it's a primer face oil that's going to be very light it's going to be moisturizing it's going to give you kind of a dewy glossy vibe shown here it's supposed to be for all skin types including oily so that's good to know and then apparently you can use it as a primer for your skin or you can mix it into your foundation if you want more of a dewy look but I'd be careful
whatfoundation you add because if you're adding it to something th doesn't have oil or it has water in it it will like to break into your skin so let's give it a try this is the packaging i mean this is the outer packaging oh it's like red on the inside that's funny tada and i know she started this whole look this is how it looks a lot like her style is what i think of when i think of gwen stefani from the early 90s but in makeup format i keep looking at it and thinking its kvd beauty again i know this is her this is like her style but when you bring it and it you translate to makeup, I feel like it's this, it's or is it kbd i just have to share my thoughts you know oh wait what do you smell like?
Put a few drops here. Does it say how many? the drops would be kind of important oh I put too much it says a drop or two uh I'll do it I'll put it on my hands just moisturize my hands and then whatever's left I'll put on my face you don't need a lot okay okay so my hands have a little bit on just a little oh it has a very powdery smell it's scented but I can't tell what that scent is it reminds me of something but it's very powdery ok it's on my skin again it just rained how much it doesn't feel super oily i'm getting a little bit shiny here so that's good and i saw a lot of people talking about how they use it as a real oil for their hands elbows that kind of thing , so I'm curious if I get this on my hands like how it's going to feel so far that it doesn't feel like a hand cream where you're like you get hit with that moisture and you're like, oh it's so much better it feels like oil in my skin but I'm open to being convinced otherwise, I've hit this u n couple of minutes to like sinking into the skin I think it's okay and I mean I have it on and it feels good but it wasn't like oh wow you definitely need to go out and buy it for me I don't know I wasn't surprised , but now I want to move on to another beauty brand that's relatively new, I mean within the last two years, I mean, but they constantly come up with new releases, it's been doing really well and it's a rare Selena Gomez beauty, oh, I just realized I have a sweater of hers that should be with us. straight from selena you know we're best friends but it's got weird beauty written on it and it's like a really pretty color and the sleeves are long enough.
I love the wood brands that the sweaters. so i was wearing the sweater because i know what queer beauty is you know what queer beauty is but not everyone knows what queer beauty is so i'm wearing the sweater it's just me walking into a grocery store and i only have a sweater on it says weird beauty like i'm so full of myself and it really didn't occur to me until i got home it was like what people must have thought but i don't care because selena gomez has told me that i am a rare beauty your rare beauty we're all rare beauties but anyway that's my side note um to say i'm trying your foundation not really that much i feel like i've tried this before but it's been so long i can't remember, so I thought this was a good time to bring it back and I remember when Rare Beauty launched and they sent out this amazing PR package because they didn't just launch with a couple of products but they launched as a whole kit of things that is found are among Selena's favorite types of products. and the caps and easy access open and use and i thought the whole system was really well put together a lot of blushes i remember that was kind of big but we're going to use your weightless liquid foundation this is a foundation medium coverage it's supposed to be super breathable on the skin it almost feels like a serum and just sinks into the skin perfectly we got it all set so it should be great i think i'm going to mostly use this shade. but i could mix this up a little bit i'm going to do a couple of dots here ok that feels good now let's blend it out it really feels like absolutely nothing on the skin that's crazy look at that that looks very nice very smooth very skin like so its not doing anything for my pores but now we are going to get into another brand and i am trying to keep it to just a couple of video famous brands just so we can get in in more depth about the brand itself versus one of the 10 brands you know about so now we go to fenty which is another very popular one and this is rihanna's beauty brand and it launched several years ago and it's blowing up. she's made so many different great launches, really innovative additions to the beauty community and they've really been at the forefront I feel like a lot of the upcoming new trends and she's done a great job with a lot of these different products so let's using one of my favorite concealers of hers um which is the shimmer solution this is the eye highlighter and it's like it's rose quartz and it just gives this illuminated look under the eyes it has a pink base it's really nice , easy to blend and it just brightens the finish like this its like i haven't applied it on the other side yet and i feel like it's already made a difference and i haven't put on a ton now we'll do the other side and this isn't necessarily going to cancel out really blue dark circles for that you would need more of an orange shade but this brightens so well i know you tried beauty hacks last week but i really want to try this beauty hack I like it I just found it and it's basically like they do something weird like a hook they're supposed to like to lift the face but they put it on and then they put on the bronzer and blush and then they blend it all together so come on gonna give it a try i just need to find find the trick ok here we go here we go ok i found it so basically you put it like everything below oh dear this is going to be too bright this is too light for my skin tone in this moment, alright, alright, I'll just put the rest here and then I'll use a different one. i thought it would fit it's not right we're just going to use my pixie which is kinda cool so i'm not going to put that much in here but basically they like to go like this and then they go around the nose and then oh all the way to this center here's ok and then around the lips to the corner and then just like that i think i need something a little brighter although this is going to be a mess ok ok ok i'm just going to put a little bit of this here it'll brighten it up a bit it'll to be alright do the same to the other side look at that magic where else do they put it oh it's attached here sorry sorry everyone it all comes together and then goes down like this it looks so good ok now let's go in with the outline and we're just applying it in one spot again because i talked about this hack last week it didn't work that good on camera too much product on my face i'll link it in case you missed it it's great but basically i just apply it underneath of my cheekbone right there and there my mo and then just lift your face maybe we'll put something in here too by the way it's the new one from rare beauty it's the shade gt1 g1 it's that power boost right i have no idea it's the bronzer stick I really like the formula.
It is very light. It blends super super easily. It's so easy to apply. and these are like their best seller like everyone is obsessed with these blushes and i feel like every couple of months i think i'm going to definitely try again like them this time maybe this way it's gonna work it's gonna work so good once in a while when for the brushes i mean i have my foundation brush i'm just worried i'm going to go over the bronzer but i don't have any clean brushes i'm going to be honest with you um i have to clean brushes really bad so i brought out this guy you're the brushes artist as i saw it in my drawers like i just needed a foundation brush.
I saw this. I was like okay that will do so I'll give it a try because I haven't used this one in a while. I'm going to try to get all of the concealer and all that stuff done before I get into all the bronzer, honestly I really like this brush so why did we stop using it again? like yeah i'm not going to use it because i had um foundation on it and then i go in with one for blendo concealer and uh yeah just go over it ok ok ok no ok i'll try it. this side and if not i'll just try and find a sponge i mixed everything up really well maybe i'm just using the wrong thing to mix them she blushes oh ok wait wait cause i feel like this might work.
I actually have a photo inspo. I'm going to put it here. I want to do something like this today because I think it would be very, very nice. I feel like I want to get more blushing because this picture is so blushing and pretty. I'm a little scared. I wanted to look good so much. I'm also very curious as we mix this up. I have a question regarding the definition. celebrity i know it's a weird question but when i was putting together products and brands for this what constitutes a celebrity these days because there are influencers and there are people who like movies and they're on tv shows and they're in more traditional media venues but you had to start off like you're not on social media except for justin bieber he just kind of fell under the radar for that one i also feel like the kardashians are like a celebrity they're not an influencer to like in my eyes when I think of a celebrity so I don't know I like it I feel like the worlds are blurring a bit on what is the definition of celebrity vs influencer vs social media person I don't know so I'm curious if you guys have any thoughts on that ok i feel like i need a lot more blush this is just the first layer here people this could go very wrong for us tros but let's give it a try so i really like this look i really want it on my face now i am using a different blush from selena gomez this is more like in the shade i feel this girl has and she is applying it much lower down on her face oh that's really pretty actually this is the almost apricot blush this is her blush that melts this is a beautiful shade and then it's more on the bridge of the nose than the tip of the nose you know what It doesn't really do anything on the forehead okay so it's more like bronzer and things are fine so we're going to use powder I'm going to use the weird beauty powder here this is the setting powder it's really pretty like a little design on the inside like the attention to detail which is beautiful its more like a dusty pinkish tone which i really like i find a lot of them are very very yellow to me so i really like more of a pinky tone i feel it's brighter, it's alright, my skin looks g enial y'all what a difference from last week i don't have any i thought i had some bronzers and i like them like the brand name powder ones but no that's ok.
We can still make that work. I am only going to use my tried and true bronzer. The formula one of my doctors. Looks like they have applied a lot more bronzer to the outside and again its a mix of just like the photos just really pretty. and it's also a lot of bronzer I'm trying to figure out what I want to do to blush oh you know what would be really pretty it's not a celebrity one but I really like it for this look it adds a little bit on the nose too so it looks like it looks a little y'know a little bit sunburned i think i put on too much i'm just having fun with the makeup i'm like we're we're
testingwe're playing around with celebrity products butwe also have a mission, we're going to try to make this look work because it's pretty, ooh, here's another one too.
I'm curious who the beauty influencer is. I always choose her products and I'm like that's a celebrity no it's not that I don't think so I think she started as an influencer and now she's really big or she started as an influencer and became a celebrity I don't know let me know you know what what could be it's nice to layer this is fenty this is fenty strawberry drip and it's like really the bright bright pink might be a little too pink but I feel like I just like that extra bit right on the cheekbones you know , I think it could be very pretty, I know, I know, go ahead, Rachel, leave the blush alone, add a little blush here. also now give this blush a minute it will dilute it thats how blush is on my skin you have to start heavy and then it will dilute itself so i know it looks heavy give it a minute but now c'mon on the eyes and we're keeping it pretty simple today just because I think with the obviously obviously you know what lip we're doing clearly you know who I'm picking so we're going to keep the eyes clear we're going to keep them bright I'm just using this palette from fenty , this is your bomb gang i mean the mega megamix eyeshadow palette it has a lot of soft neutrals like really pretty and that's what we're doing today first i'm going to put a little bit of concealer on the lids , this eyeshadow look is so soft any veins or whatever will ruin it ok now we are going to add just a little bit of eyeshadow and i actually really like the fenty eyeshadows i think she has done a great job.
It started with the um. You already know these pallets. try the ones that click together and it has all these different color stories to them they are absolutely gorgeous plus if you have any inspirational photos of looks you've seen on pinterest please send them to me because maybe we can use it as the building block for any future product tested it's like don't get me wrong i love a nice neutral eye very simple sometimes it's fun to play with something a little different although i feel like i'm very out of practice though oh i can't wait i have a perfume i need to try it i i forgot about this i haven't opened it yet it arrived yesterday and it's from kkw fragrances and she obviously kim kardashian has a thousand and one different ones. brands i'm sure we'll try a lot of them but i've never tried their fragrances before and apparently they're really phenomenal so i picked one that's um she's done different volumes of them so i think this is volume three of the body perfume and it has a bunch of different notes in it which I think are the ones I really like in shipping it was like four days to get here wow attention to detail oh my gosh it looks like it looks like it is like a body i feel weird even holding it up i'm not sorry i want youtube to mark me and it's like concrete like a heavy perfume but the scent sounded so good.
What were the notes on this? of like the lighter like kind of lavender pink pepper top notes but then it has that nice base note of what I love I love cedar cedar sandalwood vanilla like I think it's going to be really nice or at least I hope so but it felt like we should probably spray it now just to see it get too dry ok it's very smooth it's very floral I'm not getting a lot of woody notes yet but I'll let it dry but so far it smells very fresh but not like a clothes smell sort of wa and so far so good ok went for lunch came back smells very peppery honestly really was hoping more of that deeper note would come through because that's what the description says leaves you like that nice buttery vanilla with that. like woodsy i personally don't feel like a huge fan but he has a lot so if you have any recommendations please let me know and again it's
worthnoting i really liked how quickly the product arrived ok i think we're ready for the mascara, no.
She doesn't seem to put on a ton, she looks very, very smooth, but she's wearing a mascara that a lot of people are obsessed with. This is for rare beauty. I realize now that I should have bought more of the gwen stefani line. Did they have mascara? Honestly, I don't even remember. I just saw the lip in the oil and I was like, yeah, let's do it. It is very bristle forward. This wand and they are not the silicone ones. the light side that's right look that's very pretty i don't think i've ever done it like a coat of mascara this feels weird and i'm going to put a little liner on i'm not going to use the liner but that's kind of a try -to mine from fenty it's so good i was going to use my fenty charcoal liner and then it split open and shot all over the place ok i put it back on it's ok in a tight line just a little bit here ok now now the lips i'm going to start cleaning myself.
I have like a lip oil right now. I also exfoliated my lips because we are going to use the classic gwen stefani red. I'm excited, this is what it looks like. but she also has a couple different bullet lipsticks because I mean it's her she likes you know it's supposed to be a transfer proof long lasting lightweight liquid lipstick and it's been a minute since she i used as a matte liquid lipstick this is giving me i mean like 2016 sort of feel so this is an ultra matte finish but it's supposed to be super comfortable on the lips so let's try it and i feel like if gwen Stefani will approve of this as if this is her color, you know she has a very light and sweet scent, but look at that color.
I really like the fact that this liquid lipstick isn't too runny if that makes sense it's applying more like a mousse like it's really easy to move but it doesn't give I don't know like weird lines and stuff which is what i always hated liquid lipsticks how look how beautiful it is oh i'm excited how look at this we're kidding and don't get me wrong i'm among the worst at applying a liquid lip this is so fucking easy what do we think? from this I think this is stunning I think it's absolutely beautiful apparently this will dry and be transfer proof so we'll see I'll get back to you guys later tonight I'll let you know what happens at the end of things because again i have three kids we will see about the transfer test i f eel like i like the look of the makeup even though it is more like a new take on a red lip.
I feel like she needs, oh, you know what she needs. one that is so weird i had it in front of me i have a little bit deeper undertone so i want to say we will give it a try but since i have no idea this is the kilowatt fluid freestyle highlighter in o2 vintage velvet it se looks like these here um i had originally gone for the lighter shade but we'll see if this one works it's more like a pinkish shade you can see very icy it's interesting that the kind of shimmer this girl has is more in the center of her face than like a more traditional like highlighting the sides of the face you know i think this might be too pink a shade for the look we are going for today but i like the formula i will find it gives more as my skin is a dewy look vs a traditional here's my blinding highlight something i wanna say i don't understand i'm wrong i'm still putting it on well what do we think?
We like? I don't like? Let me know in the comments so I'll get on with the rest of the day. I will communicate with you tonight. I'll see I'm particularly interested in the lip and just seeing how it wears but I feel like my skin makeup looks good it's a little heavy because again I went crazy with the concealer but I'll see them in a little good it's the end of the day, it's like six o'clock for the most part, but i wanted to show you while i still had some natural light so you can see what the makeup looks like, um, the lipstick holds up really well. obviously like in the corners and like it's worn down a bit but I had like greasy fish and chips and that's what was left over from that so I like that's really awesome I really like the formula that hasn't been yucky feeling on my lips i would say i have a little bit of leftover in my cup when i was drinking coffee and water before i could see a little bit but not a ton um so i think overall it's completely like the transfer test lettering no but i would say that's pretty cool and the rest of the makeup like yeah honestly i really like it i know it's not for everyone as far as the amount of blush but i think it looks very fresh.
I like the center face dewy versus the streaked highlights, which I mean, don't get me wrong, it's a classic, but like that. it's just that it feels more, I don't know, I really like, oh, the perfume, so I asked Chris to smell it first because he said, oh, you smell good. it smells like vanilla I really like it I guess it's just on me and I don't smell it on myself but I was explaining the different notes and then he said oh yeah it smells like wood vanilla likes it like that which apparently smells good it's not his favorite but he still likes it a lot it's just weird to me that i can't smell it at all on myself oh the tables have turned usually chris can't smell anything and i have a very finely tuned sense of smell so its wild to me like i just cant smell it oh perfumes are so finicky so i really dont know how to rate this because i cant smell it so i have no idea but a Chris likes him and it's like he calms down. which again that woody vanilla doesn't really smell anything like the flowers and stuff or popcorn i smelled before but then again that's when the scent dries down it's going to settle into the base note so anyway i thought that was it very interesting let me know if there are any other scents i should try from them because i feel like a lot of them rate very highly so i want to try more i like the perfumes at the moment i feel like i just keep
buyingthem oh and also any celebrity brand that should we try the next makeup or else I want to start with the makeup because it's so classic you know it was almost like a nostalgic get ready with me today I felt good but if there are any other brands you've seen and want me to try them please let me know know. comments below make sure you like this video if you want to see more of them in the future and subscribe to new videos here every week and i'll see you all in the next one
