Zoella Beauty Kissy Missy Lip Balm & YouTuber Success Talk

When Zoe Sugg announced another collection being added to her 'Zoella Beauty' range I was all ears!
 I had bought a couple of bits from the first collection and really enjoyed them and hearing that this range was 'tutti frutti' made me definitely open to trying it out as it sounded right up my street (I'm all about scents, especially when they are sweet!).
After I had watch Zoe's video on her new releases I decided that the lip balm 'Kissy Missy' had my name all over it!
 I'm a big lip product person.... it's kind of embarrassing how many I own when I only have one mouth.... but this little pot looked lovely and I like having tinted lip balms in the summer - lipsticks melting is just heartbreaking.

The pot is small - obviously - a little larger than a carmex pot and is a plain, clear plastic apart from the lid which has the name and branding.
 The scent is nice, I've been trying to figure out what it smell similar too and for the life of me I can't work it out.... I'm rubbish I know!
Now the colour. I'm so impressed with the colour! I thought maybe, for the cheap price of £3, this might be really sheer and a bit like a nivea lipbalm or rose vaseline, but I was wrong. 
This is a bright bublegum fuchsia shade and is really buildable, although it doesn't take alot to give yourself fun kissy wissy lips!
I've been using this after my lush bubblegum scrub and my lips have felt so soft and smooth with a cute pop of colour!

For the price this is great, a handbag must for me this summer!

Now.....while I'm on the subject quick I just wanted to chat about Youtubers and their many deals and partnerships that seem to be happening weekly.
To be honest that I'm kind of getting fed up of people moaning about Youtubers having these opportunities - if it was you, you would leap at the chance (I know I would) - I really don't see the problem in these ranges and internet personalities making money on merch/own brands.

Don't want it - don't buy it, but whats the point of saying these people 'don't deserve it' or 'they just want the money' it is their job at the end of the day of course they are going to try and make money. 
The internet is so fickle and people, including Zoe, don't know when their time will be up - I don't blame them for taking everything they can while the chances are there.
 This blog and doing a few youtube videos here and there takes up so much of my time and I put alot of effort into it so I can imagine how much work people like Zoe have to put into everything they are achieving! My thoughts - You go girl! 
You may not agree with how I feel about it but that's life, we all have our different thoughts, it's kind of how to world works my loves!

Love you guys, thank you again for visiting A Yellow Brick Blog whether you are re-visiting or here for the first time - you rock! xoxo

  1. This range looks fab, I much prefer fruity scents to the first range. I agree that if anybody was offered these things they would accept them. I work hard in my day to day job to earn as much money as I can, so why cant they work hard in their job to earn as much money as possible.

  2. Cannot wait to get my hands on this range everything just looks so cute! x

  3. Completely agree with you on You Tubers and bloggers being given these opportunities, they have worked damn hard for these sort of things if it were me I'd jump, seems people are just a bit jealous.

  4. agreed. people need to stop moaning and being jealous :p

    I have yet to try this range, I've heard it's not very good but I'm glad the lipbalm is nice :)

  5. I have to agree with you, everyone would take the opportunities and try to make money and establish their career if they could. I don't watch Zoella, her beauty line doesn't appeal to me but, in the slightest, I don't mind her doing what she does. x

  6. Hear hear! Completely agree with you about leaving Youtubers be. I don't understand why people are so resistant to change - Youtube is clearly just a new, popular media. Apparently people opposed the printing press when it was invented! There's definitely a lot of jealousy in there, I think a lot of bloggers and vloggers are nasty about Zoella et al because they want that level of success for themselves!!

    Great post xo

  7. I love this blog post! I'm yet to purchase Zoe's second range but payday is around the corner! It's so refreshing to see someone praising youtubers and there success.

  8. Sounds pretty good this lip balm!! Today they're seen as youtubers who knows they'll become amazing writers or founders of a great makeup brand on the near future! :) xx

  9. I think the colour is lovely and the new range smells so much nicer than the old one in my opinion! Not tried this one, but the shower gel is lush!! Also, totally agree with people moaning about YT's success stories! I would jump at the chance for every opportunity thrown my way and sure there are products and books I won't buy as I'm not interested, but if I want to buy it, I will!! Tania xx

  10. I have the body mist from this collection and I love it. The lip balm looks so nice, but it just isn't my colour. x

  11. I've only got the body mist from this collection (so far!) and I've heard this is pretty good. My friend has this and I was surprised with the pigmentation it has! xx

  12. How pretty is this :) Think I'm going to check out some more from her latest collection

  13. I agree with this: love her or hate her, Zoe is a business woman and is merely making the most of her opportunities.

  14. I totally agree. Even though I don't ever want to blog full time, if I got offered some amazing collaboration I'd know I couldn't turn it down!

  15. What a great post! I agree with you, there is too much hate out there. People are so jealous.


  16. I really wanted to buy this but bubblegum pinks aren't really my colour so I just left it. I think sounds like an amazing product though! :)x
