The Best of the Best, Recommendations from My Favorite Youtube Beauty Gurus



I follow a lot of Youtube Beauty Gurus, and whenever I'm shopping for a new beauty product I try to remember which products some of my favorite Youtubers have recommended or warned against. The problem? I have zero memory capacity. So I'm putting together this list of recommendations from some of my favorite gurus. I'll keep it updated when something new has been reviewed. I'll also keep a list updated of products that have been reviewed negatively that I want to remember to avoid. As with every beauty product, what's worked for one person may not be ideal for another. So use this list in the way it's intended - as a guide for brand discovery. As for high end vs. drug store …this list will include both. I'll use hashtags to indicate which guru recommended which products.
