Hi, I’m Colleen. Nice to meet you. This blog and YouTube channel are about cruelty-free beauty, product reviews, decluttering, and having fun!
There’s a world of beauty blogs and YouTube channels out there, but sometimes it feels like everyone’s talking about the same few products and that your value as an audience member is tied to how much money you’re willing to spend.
I started Broke for Beauty in 2013 because I was a college student trying to figure out which products could work for me without making my wallet break a sweat. I wanted to talk about products in many price ranges and shine the spotlight on some products that get overlooked in the buzz about another brand (that maybe spent a little more on marketing).
I added a YouTube channel to the mix in 2014, because some things are easier to show than to photograph. Since then, I’ve been posting content ranging from product reviews to painting my dog’s nails. I’ve found that I’m much happier living outside the hype and focusing on helping you love your stash without having to shop every weekend.
I always write honest reviews, even for products that were sent to me for free. Take a look through my posts to see what’s worth your money or not, without spending a thing. Join the conversation in the comments to get to know your fellow beauty-lovers. And let me know what I should try out next!
