She lost a lot of weight (which I commend her for)…but not she's trying to post fashion videos and she just looks terrible. Smh. And her makeup looks are trashy

I like her. She hasn't become a cliche of a what a beauty "guru" is. I admire how she has turned her hobby into a successful business and her products are QUALITY. I think she dresses her body well, even if most of it is not really my style.

I like the way she dresses. She is shaped like me and gives me ideas for how to balance my body. She wears more makeup than I care for, but that's also what she does for a living. She seems genuine to me. I like her retro makeup with the bold red lip look video that she made recently.

I used to really like her. She seemed genuine and down to earth but she was in Jaclyn Hill's new cali vlog and after seeing what she did in that video it made me not like her at all now. She was rushing everyone because Chanel was closing at 7pm and the time was like 6 something and she just had to get there before it closed. Really Marlena? angryothers-221 Another beauty YouTuber who is so crazy for brand names and just had to get there before closing..oye vey yell Yes life is so hard where Chanel is closing for the night and you just had to get there and buy pointless shit you probably won't be able to fit in anyway..smiley-laughing004

I love makeup geek. No shame. I do follower her on YT but I never watch videos that aren't makeup related. I pass on hauls and vlogs, don't care. Just want to see makeup being applied.

I agree. I just subscribed yesterday and have only seen a few videos, but I agree about her not being a cliche beauty guru. I think it's great she's lost weight and opens up about her health issues, but I admit I hadn't heard of her or her brand until I saw a video by Tati yesterday.

FWIW: Marlena had to get to Chanel before they closed because Jaclyn was buying her mom a purse for her birthday…and they were visiting, possibly not going to be there for any more shopping.  She was being a good hostess/chauffeur.

I have been watching Marlena since the early days and she is one of the most "real" YouTubers out there.  She is honest, open and seems like a genuinely nice person.  Most of all, she created a phenomenal makeup line with excellent prices and is now receiving her own ration of hate because "the colors are too similar", "there are only 6 colors", and "it's too expensive". And it really hurts her when she isn't liked.  I admit, it makes me a little sadface to see it happen…

As I stated in the Jaclyn thread, I watch a lot of beauty gurus (blush) and don't understand why JH and Marlena get so much hate when others seem to be like Teflon (nothing sticks to them).  It's all rainbows and unicorns on Emily's and Leighann's channels and, while I appreciate those calm patches of happy once in a while, it's still interesting to see which gurus draw the drama.

I like Marlena too. I bought some products recently and they're fabulous despite the tax I had to pay to import to UK , they're worth it. She's a smart cookie and I admire admire her business acumen. But dear lord stay away from fashion videos! I wouldn't dream of criticising her body and she's done an amazing job on the weight loss, I wish I could say the same. But blimey love, you're not cut out to model, stick to make up!

I've been watching her for a long time and I honestly love her. 

 

I'm ALWAYS hesitant to buy any product hocked by a celebrity, especially an internet fauxlebrity, but after hearing so many good things about her products I did finally try them. 

 

Damn guys. I was a makeup artist for years and still freelance for people I know whenever needed, though rarely. I have used every brand under the sun and I'm telling you that if her shadows were a new line by Urban Decay they would be sold out everywhere. They're buttery but extremely pigmented without being chalky and are SO inexpensive. I'm forever sold. 

 

I was just watching a video of her's and was like, "I need to hop on GOMI bc I have never been more impressed with a YouTuber than I am right now!" when I heard she's launching an actual retail store. I see her going places, and I see this line being in Sephora one day. If Lauren Luke could have a palette in Sephora, these amazing shadows certainly could be, especially with lines like OCC and Lit being picked up by Sephora. She's going places for sure and I am honestly making myself sick with how much I like her now lol I can't help it! We have totally opposite taste but I really like her because she's so hard working and has come so far in her personal and professional life. She isn't delusional about what YouTube is.

Don't really care what Marlena is wearing, because her makeup is spot on. I finally broke down and ordered 7 shadows. They are 5.99/ea. They are REALLY good, so now of course, I have to order more. I also plan on trying out a blush or two, since those are only 9.99/ea.

 

I still haven't given in on buying any foil shadows. I need to see more relevant reviews…specifically regarding their creasing and durability.

 

And if you love her and JH, you should check out Manny MUA

I've always had a soft spot for Marlena. She has always seemed very real and open. I don't really care about her fashion/clothing posts, but I'm really happy for her in regards to her weight loss journey.
