(Eco) Beauty Product Spring Cleaning

One of my favorite things to do is continually engage in a recursive process of editing my life. Ruthlessly detoxifying things out so that I can make space for what I DO desire. This impulse has become even stronger since I began working with a medical intuitive, which has had the effect of clarifying many facets of my life. I recently did a comprehensive sweep of my beauty stash and thought I’d show you guys what will be leaving chez l’amour – so in a way, this is kind of a disappointing products video too. Thumbs up for aspiring minimalism, and a l’amour makeup collection at 10k subscribers? xoxo, mercedes.

Disclaimer and a word on integrity: All products I talk about here on L’amour et la Musique are purchased with my own money, unless I explicitly mention that it was given to me either as a “PR sample” or gifted to me by friends/subscribers/et cetera. I will ALWAYS be fully transparent about any products given to me for review, that I did not seek out or purchase of my own accord. It is one of the biggest issues I have with YouTube – that many bloggers and YouTubers have just become a means to market products. That’s not why I do this. There is a huge difference between giving a rave to a product you researched and hemmed and hawed about spending your own money on, versus something given to you to test out. So, long-winded way of saying: all opinions expressed are entirely my own, and I strongly value honesty and integrity in real life and here on YouTube. *Products marked with an asterix were sent or given to me as PR samples by the company (I don’t denote gifts from friends or subscribers) *In general I try and link products to where I purchased them from *Some links may be affiliate links
