  1. Alright BP, time to post how you store your makeup! I just recently organized mine, but I am curious to see your set up. Please share! It was fun to watch your year in review and realize how many products I have purchased based on your review or because you made me aware they existed, ie. Surratt, Lift Lab Cleanser, the By Terry Lip Palette to name just a few. Thanks so much! BTW my friends thank you too!

    1. Hi Lisa,

      Thanks for the most recent post offers one suggestion but it doesn't even scratch the surface of what I'm dealing with over here ; ) Will be working on something comprehensive soon!

      Thanks so much for your kind words about my video...I'm honored to be able to share the products I love.

      Much love to you and your friends...XOXO,

  2. hi rachel!! i absolutely loved this incredible video!! i thought you looked extra, extra gorgeous. i have a strong fetish for thick, curly/wavy hair. mine is curly but incredibly thin. i know you like yours straight but, i thought your hair looked fabulous. i'm at work but, when i get home i need to watch this video again and take notes. of course i want everything. i already have the burberry shadow and chanel gloss thanks to your recommendations. those makeup brushes, the charlotte tilbury eyeshadow, omg!! i just want everything! all of your recommendations are always perfect and the best!! i'm very distracted today so i apologize if i happened to miss it but could you please tell me the makeup your wearing in this video? i thought you said charlotte tilbury for eyes and girlactik powder for highlight? i love your lip color. did you say you were wearing gloss with surratt lipstick? anyway, everything is just stunning! thankyou so much for this video. you worked really hard on this and, i think it's the best beauty video of the year!! xoxo to you!! p.s. i wanted you to know that i have "back-order" status on the by terry lip palette that you recommended. i can't wait to get it!!

    1. Hi Wendy!

      Thank you so much! I am completely flattered by your compliments and am so glad you enjoyed everything. I meant to include a makeup breakdown in the post but it ended up being so much typing that I forgot ; ) Yes, I was wearing the By Terry Click Brush Foundation, the Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Quad and the Girlactik Lustre Higlighter. I cannot wait for you to receive the By Terry Lip will love it!

      XO and talk soon, my friend,

  3. Hey Rachel, thank you for sharing this beauty bonanza with us. I'm seriously concerning purchasing the RBR powder you mentioned. In the video you say you have it in several shades. I'm (mostly) a little bit lighter than you, MAC C2, Tom Ford Fawn etc; what shade would you recommend in the RBR powder? Thank you!

    1. Hi Anon,

      My pleasure...thanks for watching and reading! I think you could get away with Mirage or Aura...both are a light beige with slightly warm undertones.

      I hope that helps...xx,

    Thanks for compiling this.
    You hair looks amazing with the smooth, messy waves. J'adore!

    1. Thank you ever so much, my friend!! I am beyond glad you liked it...much appreciation for dedicating the time to watch as I know this was a long one ; )

      What is new with you?
