YouTube: NYC Expert Last Lip Color Haul and Review!

It finally happened. My first proper video is up on the creation of beauty is art. YouTube channel. You might remember a post I made a few weeks back about my decision to start filming videos. It was a long time coming. Even still, it seems surreal that an actual video is up on my channel. You know, other than an introduction one! I am slowly getting more comfortable being in front of the camera but I think it will take time until I am able to totally relax and let go. Despite my nerves, I actually had a lot of fun filming this. It felt good to just sit and talk makeup. That isn't something I get to do very aside!

So, what is my video about? I decided to do a haul and review of some lip products I recently added to my makeup collection. They were from the NYC Expert Last Lip Color line. At about $2 per lipstick, it was a makeup bargain I couldn't resist. Are you ready to see the shades I picked out and some swatches? Then be sure to check out my latest YouTube video below:

As you can see from the video, I was all about trying out bolder shades. There is a very good reason for this. With spring and summer on the way, I am ready to embrace look-at-me lips. The brighter, the better! Here is a closer look at the NYC lipsticks I added to my makeup collection.

Left to Right: Red Rapture, Forever Fuchsia, Blue Rose, Velvety Fuchsia, Coralista, Sugar Plum. 

There is something indescribably exciting about trying out new makeup. And honestly? There is something equally exciting about creating videos, expressing myself, and stepping out of my comfort zone. It is early days yet....but so far, I am loving every minute.

If you get the chance, please check out the creation of beauty is art. YouTube channel, like, comment, and subscribe!

  1. Great review!! The color you are wearing is so pretty!! Don't worry it will take a little bit to get comfy in front of the camera but you will get to a point where you don't even know it's there. :-) xoxo
