Why I like Fleur Deforce - Youtubers I trust

No, I’m not on about the whole YouTube scandal of last year!  These 3 are very popular and whilst I’m all for watching new and up and coming Youtubers, there are a few that I return to over and over again… because I know I can trust what they say.  This is why I’ll never be a beauty blogger/vlogger – I have no need to find out the hard way that a foundation isn’t worth the money.    When I do these ‘sharing the blogger/youtuber love’ posts I tend to pick those who maybe aren’t quite so well-known, but sometimes you just want to stick to the ones you know and trust.  Of course there are more than just these three; girl needs lots of videos to watch!


Fleur never puts a foot wrong does she?  When someone isn’t afraid to post less-than-favourable reviews (as Fleur sometimes does) I’m far more inclined to believe what they say.  I don’t know why, but I get the impression that she usually does her own thing and doesn’t always follow the crowd, which as you know, I like.  One video that I sticks in my mind is the one where she talked about not particularly enjoying her time at LSE; I watched it quite a while ago and liked the fact that she wasn’t bothered about saying the time hadn’t been great.  These kind of videos are usually my favourites, the chatty ones and the vlogs and just general ‘life-y’ stuff.  Really on it with the technical terms today aren’t I?


Why I like thepersianbabe - Youtubers I trust

Anything Barbara likes, I like!  Not even joking.  The ‘classy look’ styling makes me very inclined to trust her picks, and she styles items that I wouldn’t necessarily have picked, in a way that somehow really works.  Girl has an impressive collection of white shirts too!  Watching her Topshop styling videos seriously makes me want every piece. I quite like the fact that both her videos and style are quite ‘no frills’ and simple, which adds to the whole classic feel I guess.  No OTT squealiness or anything, and nice clean backgrounds.


Why I like sunbeamsjess - Youtubers I trust

If anyone can make standing around staring at a video camera look cool, it’s this girl!  Unlike Barbara her style isn’t always what I’d wear, but it definitely works on Jess.   The videos themselves are beautifully shot (the lookbooks in particular) and have an almost cinematic feel.  She comes across as one of the most naturally comfortable in front of the camera, and her videos that aren’t clothes related and are more personal/informative are very relatable.   In a similar way to Fleur really; I’d trust one of these girls’ opinions on the university experience as much as I’d trust them on the best picks at Topshop.


On a completely unrelated note, I haven’t exactly had the best of weeks, hence the quietness on the blogging front.  Matty and I have decided to go our separate ways even though neither of us wanted to.  Circumstance and geography were about to make things impossible.  Sad after such a short but fun time.  It’d feel dishonest not to mention anything on here as I’ve included him in several posts already, and I’d feel like I’d be conning you guys to pretend I’d been happy as larry all week.  Life throws you some pretty crappy turns sometimes, doesn’t it?

    I’ve heard of FleurdeForce but not the other two. I don’t watch youtubers really, I prefer reading blog posts. x

    Sorry that it couldn’t have worked out with Matty. It does seem like a short time and happy too. What a hard decision. I hope you are having a good weekend and that things feel better soon.

    Sorry to hear things haven’t worked out with Matty. I hope you are doing okay and this week is better for you.
    I must admit Fleur is the only beauty vlogger that I’m happy to watch without feeling irritated. Lots of the other “big named” youtubers seem to just rub me the wrong way for some reason. Fleur seems so genuine and I feel like I can really trust what she says – even if most of the products that she talks about are out of my budget! Plus, her vlogs are so real too. She never seems fake.

      Thank you Debi! It’s really sad that it couldn’t work out as we were so happy but there’s nothing that can be done.
      Fleur is one of very few that aren’t annoying isn’t she! Most of the products are wayyyy out of my budget too but nice to look at as inspiration at least 😛

    I don’t really watch youtubers since all my free time goes in watching my favorite tv series, haha! But Fleur has an impressive blog and make up sense.

    Oh Lily Kate, I’m so sorry you’re having a less than happy week, I’m sorry things haven’t worked out with you and Matty… :-/

    On the other note, I love Fleur De Force! At the moment I’m very wary of some youtubers, Zoella in particular, I’ve started to notice when their tone and attitude changes when they speak about a product, I can tell it’s not from the heart. Fleur has always been a consistent for me, even when other youtubers have gone off in a bit of a hype over xyz she’s always stayed true, and she’s never afraid to say she hasn’t liked something 🙂 x

      Aw thank you Alice! It’s rubbish isn’t it :/
      Yes, on a more cheerful note! Certain others spring to mind when you say you can sense their tone changing but I shan’t name names 😛 She doesn’t follow the same formula as all the others which makes her my favourite!
