Anna's last video (haircare 101) sponsored by head and shoulders and it was too obvious I couldn't watch after she mentioned them. I even left a comment on youtube.

I know they film these videos to earn money but could they at least be more creative or subtle. I mean I'm sure they can find a way to film for a company in less obvious way. no-no

What I'm trying to say is Lily and Anna's take of sponsored videos don't make me want to buy the product. Fleur does way better and subtle way and when I watch her videos I always feel like she is honest. She makes me feel that way but Lily and Anna doesn't.

 

And their posting schecule is killing me. They always post at the same time, choose very similar topics and edit their videos same way. It is not professional. After them is hellooctoberxo. She tries to imitate VDM. I like the girl but all of them irritates me so much. I unsubscribed from their channels.

They are both SO bad at sponsored videos. So clunky and obvious.  The products they feature don't even make sense with each of their "brands".  You can't convince me that Anna ever uses Head and Shoulders or that Lily is a Starbucks customer.  It's beyond lame.

Did Anna respond to your comment, yvaine? Lily gets pretty butthurt at the slightest criticism, so I wonder if Anna is the same way.

No, she didn't respond. Even if my comment is one of the top comments. I think she purposely ignores it. 

I have been watching Anna like more than 2 years and she rarely use drugstore brands except loreal for mascara. So no I don't think she uses them. I feel like if she has to choose between two products she always prefers the most expensive one because it's expensive not because it's better. 

 

And maybe Lily is a Starbucks customer or Anna actually uses (or used once) Head & Shoulders. It's the way they try to market products that irritates me. Make it more beliveable and realistic.

omg thank youuu

I was very interested in the video, more for her hair routine than the actual products, but after the 3rd Head and Shoulders product mentioned that she had NEVER mentioned before (she's been basically naming bumble and bumble products lately) I got what kind of video it was. I guess her fangirls are just the right people for this though, on her blog at least, they were all thanking her for the recs.sangry

I mean, look at this review — if you can even call it that. What kind of beauty blogger is this! stringing together 8 sentences and calling it a review? How utterly shameful! So many beauty bloggers take time to actually brighten their photos, make it clear as day — AND write insightful, comprehensive reviews while this girl has the gall to publish this and call it a day.
 
Sure you post EVERY SINGLE DAY, but what use is it when you churn out vapid, insipid, dull posts like these?
 
BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF, LILY. BE VERY ASHAMED.

Yeah, notice there's no video or photos of the finished effect of the product, which makes me think it's probably not awesome, but we wouldn't want Tarte et al to stop sending us free products, now would we?

Lily rarely ever shows end product. Its always application with eyes closed. I think she thinks it looks editorial but it doesn't. Also, that Tarte contour stick is ORANGE. These girls need to stop pushing orange products for contouring. Your face does not make an orange shadow. Just stop. sangry

I'm subscribed to Vivianna, I always watch her videos when I see a new one, love her personality… She's one of the few youtubers who doesn't seem to spend thousands a week on products and clothing.

I just don't get the appeal of these british youtubers. Yeah Vivianna has a nice personality, but her makeup skills are poor. And how many GRWM videos does she plan to do? 1 million? I subbed to her, but I never felt like watching any of her videos, they seem boring. She could at least try to give them catchy titles. The only one I liked was her drugstore makeup video.

Lily Pebbles looks like a strict disciplinarian. Period

 

Don't even get me started on Amelia Liana. Have you seen her PMS/Period GRWM? She says, "Lemons are alkali". At least get your f**king facts right before you preach it to your 200k+ followers. ANd her accent sucks

I rather like Lily and Anna for the most part but cannot help but side-eye the lastest sponsorship. Lily just posted a little Q&A about Clear Guide, another version of Invisalign. Recently in one of Anna's weekly vlogs she mentioned that she'd gotten clear braces as well. Lily's post has a teeny-tiny disclaimer saying she was given the Clear Guide treatment for coverage. I have an inkling we'll see Anna 'cover' the braces sometime soon!

I'm not a fan of Lily, she seems stiff and cold on camera. So I'm not subscribed to her and I don't tend to notice the similar posts. She's massively into the more expensive ranges and products, does anyone know if she comes from money? Can you afford that much Chanel and Diptyque through blogging?  Do your reckon there's any issue with Anna winning best beauty blog on bloglovin? catfight

 

I like Anna a lot. She's funny and down to earth. We have quite similar styles, quite simple, and it's nice to see someone admit that they can't do eyeliner either. I've found a few clothing and jewellery brands through her that I hadn't known about before. I also like the fitness things she talks about.
