Did you know that less than a third of my readers are German? The majority comes from the UK and the US. That kind of puts me in a dilemma:
I have some brand new, sparkling things from pixi to share with you in todays video. But they are only new in Germany, the UK has had them for quite a while now.
So do I title this post: pixi new releases and risk people from the UK thinking it was a click bait? Or do I title it pixi new releases Germany, risking only a third of my readers will be remotely interested?
The difficulties of “having your target audience in mind”, always among the top three of those annoying “How to succeed in blogging” posts that never really seem to help. Wonder how I know? Because I click them every time. So much for “I only blog for the fun and don´t care about numbers” *cough*
Anyway, I decided to stick with New In from pixi as title. Should work well enough.
You may have noticed there wasn´t a Favorites post last month. Quite frankly, after doing my Favorites for 2016 (see Makeup and Skincare here in case you missed them), I felt like there wasn´t much to report.
So I settled for February Favorites and a short break, mentally preparing to have a really big list of things to mention.
Turns out, that isn´t the case. I do have quite a few makeup bits, but only one skincare item (shocking, I know) and I completely forgot about the lifestyle category. Bad Vlogger indeed.
Do you remember the „Bag of Empties“ I showed you in a recent video? I have a similar one filled with new makeup goodies that I wanted to try on camera. It takes a lot of self-control not to just rip them open once I have them, but I really want to be more mindful about the things I own and use, so I made myself wait.
Until today: Time to dig into some fresh stuff. Live and on camera! KIKO is a brand I had on my mind quite some time already, and despite owning a few bits, I did not feel ready to form an opinion on the brand.
And we all know, having a proper opinion on a makeup brand is quite important.
pixi on the other hand is a brand that I have worked with before, and while I am excited by their skincare, the makeup I tried was nice, but not mind-blowing. And nice is never enough in this world of competitive makeup.
