Watch It Wednesday: Lily Pebbles

Lily Pebbles

I love to marathon YouTubers, and how else to marathon other than watching from oldest video to newest? It takes months, but it's totally worth it because it let's you love the YouTuber even more. 

Recently I just finished watching Lily Pebbles and now I'm up to date. I started to watch her because I loved seeing her in Anna's videos (ViviannaDoesMakeup). They are the best friends every one wants to be like. I've read her blog for the same amount that I read Anna's and I loved (and still love) their posts so loving their videos was no surprise.

What actually was a surprise was that I wasn't massively in love with Lily's videos from the get-go. All of her videos have amazing content, but you couldn't truly see her personality come through until she started to vlog more and vlogged every day straight for Vlogmas and then #EveryDayMay. Once she did those daily vlogs, I enjoyed her videos much more and now she is one of my favorite YouTubers.

Lily used to only post videos of makeup and fashion-y things as well as hair and skincare. As the years go on and her life changes, she has been posting more tech-y videos and home-ware hauls. Also her Beauty Chats with Anna are classics and I literally LOL so much that people think I'm a bit odd because I laugh so much. I also love her videos with Rich (her finance) every once in a while.

What I love is that while marathoning someone, they influence you. Lily has made me super aware of my skincare and makes me want to continue to take care of it and make it look nice because her's is always flawless. She also inspires my fashion to be more edgy and seeing her curl her hair with her straightener made me go through a phase where that's all I wanted to do. So all in all, not too bad to be influenced by!

Who have you been marathoning lately?

Me oh my am I determined to get my lip products under control. It's basically me decluttering at this point rather than actually using, but these lip products I've had for a while, so I don't feel as bad. Also, to sum up the lip products, unless they stand out to me as not wearing well (fading unevenly, clumping oddly, etc), or the color doesn't suit me, I generally love/make the color work. 
I've also used up quite a few skin care products that I wasn't expecting to finish.
Things I've Used Up:
Joico Color Infuse Red Shampoo: I bloody love this stuff. I claim this is the thing that makes my hair stay red as long as it does. Not only does it have color-lasting powers, but it cleans your hair and actually makes it feel clean. Huge plus in my book. I'm still undecided how long I want to keep my red hair, but if I ever decide to keep it, or go back to red, this is the first thing I'm gonna pick up.
Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream: This was a sample that I foun…

#ProjectPan July 2017

As my stash somehow is larger than ever, despite my makeup ban efforts, I still only buy when I get those Ulta "free gift with any purchase" emails that sucker me in each time. I'm going to promise myself that unless I need a spare necessary product that I'm nearly out of, when I get those emails, I'll stick to racking up my lip balm collection.
What I've used up over the past month: Joico Color Extend Shampoo: At first, I didn't mind this shampoo. But after the glaze on my hair washed out, I started to hate this shampoo. It just doesn't feel like my hair is clean at the roots. Apparently this is a common problem with color friendly shampoo, so I'm not mad about it, but now that it's done, I'm excited to try other shampoos that will make my hair feel like I got it done at the salon after each wash. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Shampoo (Sample): OH EM GEE. My hair finally felt like my hair again. I see people buy any and all Living Proof prod…

#ProjectPan June 2017

This month has been fairly tame with finishing things. I'm finding that I'm finally reaching the end of some of my powders and foundations. I'm also doing great with decluttering the lip collection. There's also a bit of face things in there, so hopefully a little something for everyone. 
Products I've Used Up: Dermalogica Pre-Cleanse (30 mL): This is truly life changing. Well, not really, but it took off my makeup exceptionally well and I would happily repurchase this again.  Charlotte Tilbury Magic Night Cream (1.5 mL): I liked how it made my skin feel, but if you over do it, it can still feel tacky in the morning, which wasn't fun. I'm gonna stick with my samples of serums and creams for now.  Maybelline Dream Pure BB: I'm not too fussed with foundations, so I got on with this fairly well. It's a light coverage, but with the right brush, it could be a medium coverage. It lasts a good while. My only complaint is that towards the end, it separated a bi…
