Mercedes Shops // An Unboxing! Dermstore, Sephora VIB, Beauty Habit + Recent Apparel Acquisitions

Basically I’m all set with beauty product shopping for awhile. I also wanted to share a few additions to my (aspiring capsule) wardrobe. I hope you enjoy watching, please share any recent shopping you’ve done, and I’ll be seeing you guys all sorts of extra this coming week! 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
