Trinny is a beauty guru now?

Anyone seen Trinny's YouTube vlog? She is absolutely bonkers but weirdly addictive - she has so much energy and jabbers excitedly into her iPhone in her bathroom - kind of talking us through her skincare/makeup routines.
I've just watched about 4 in a row and that girl has skin of steel! There's one vlog where she uses 7 different peels and exfoliators straight after the other WITH a dermaroller and her skin wasn't even pink.
Her knowledge isn't bad but she does get chemical names mixed up sometimes which is amusing. Anyway, definitely worth a look for the entertainment value alone. Check out the one where she does a mad morning exercise routine whilst applying skincare - you couldn't make it up!

No one seen her?

Me, me, me!
Love Trinny. My favourite is where she compares Charlotte Tilbury to a Rosie for Autograph make up. I find her fairly honest in regards to her reviews. Love that her assistant sits in the bath shouting out names of products.

She is truly mad though!

Jmangel Sun 19-Feb-17 20:18:31

God I know, the assistant thing is hilarious - she's either in the bath or skulking on the landing having products thrown at her!

I love her but wish she'd stay clear of the surgeon...

Maudlinmaud Sun 19-Feb-17 20:27:13

Hahaha I love people like Trinny who just talk at you. Weirdly I like it even more when they are trying to sell me something. I find it relaxing. She is mad. grin

She's bonkers...I love watching her, she constantly changes the subject and randomly interacts with her assistant, she's so easy to watch 😂

I often put Trinny vlogs on when I'm getting ready in the morning. She's very frenetic. Definitely not a you tuber to watch at bedtime. She is completely potty but very watchable.

Ooh I love Trinny, am going to find this now.

Really enjoy her videos! Completely bonkers but I trust what she says, as I get the impression she buys the products herself and she's not doing ads like 'youtubers'.
Her stealth shopping trips are hilarious "quickly, quickly! They don't like us filming in here!!"

Love her. She's strangely addictive and a breath of fresh air compared to most other vloggers who insist on waffling about irrelevant shite whilst pouting a lot!

Her skin is bloody amazing but I expect her regime only works so well because of all the professional treatment she has done.

So, she freely admits to Botox and vampire face treatments but denies fillers - even her lips she swears are natural. I sort of think she's so open about everything else she does - live colonic irrigation vlog anyone! - that why would she not be truthful about fillers iyswim. Her skin is phenomenal and her skincare routine so complicated - but she must have the most resistant skin known to man!!
Yes, I watched a shopping vlog yesterday afternoon and it's hilarious - she scoots around like a mad thing with a running commentary of where the security guards are. You would think that Zara would love her going in there - sales must be up!

Just watched a few and oh my gosh that was fun! Thanks for the heads up, OP.

Hope she's paying her interns though.

ArriettyClock1 Mon 20-Feb-17 10:12:22

I spent about 2 hours last night watching her!

Her skin is completely amazing! I'm slightly transfixed by her. Her hair is also fab and I watched she having her colour done by a very miserable, but skilled colourist.

Jmangel Mon 20-Feb-17 10:19:40

I just watched that one! Yes, that was the grumpiest hair dresser ever.

ArriettyClock1 Mon 20-Feb-17 10:37:01

I think Trinny's ebullience would make Mr Tumble look miserable.

I remain to be convinced by those strange make-up brushes she swears by. They look like toothbrushes, and after she'd daubed some eyeshadow onto someone (who appeared to be promoting the pelvic floor app) - I was even less convinced!

All delightfully bonkers.

I was very tempted by the pelvic floor thingy, but it's £149!

I've just watched a couple, it's completely hilarious, and totally refreshing.
Am so bored of 20yr olds pouting into the camera, then digressing about their 'anxiety'.
Trinnys feels like an actual spoof of an upper class bonkers woman, I love it!

JohnCheese Mon 20-Feb-17 10:54:44

They're fab I agree.

She's mad as a box of frogs but I love her taste. Tho not in boyfriends
I'm surprised she denies fillers, she does strike me as honest re 'work'. To me her cheeks look chubbier than when she was younger and that just isn't possible. We all have mid-face fat loss at her age. I really like her but she is a bi 'pillow-face' looking atm.

I'd love to be her assistant. For a little while.

JohnCheese Mon 20-Feb-17 10:56:19

a bit pillow-face.

HuckfromScandal Mon 20-Feb-17 12:22:08

She is as bad as a box of frogs :-)

womanwithoutasong Mon 20-Feb-17 12:28:05

Yes, I watch her on Instagram too just to see what she's done to her face lately.

I don't remember her being that hyper in the Trinny & Suzanna days. <old gimmer alert>

has she had a boob job too? Her bum/belly look the same size.

womanwithoutasong Mon 20-Feb-17 12:29:05

I'd watch if Liz Hurley did a candid YouTube channel. I'd love to know her secret. She looks AMAZING.

Maudlinmaud Mon 20-Feb-17 12:37:36

Sort of a subject change but still relevant.i watched a clip posted by Wayne Goss and he was giving out about the use of filters in other mua videos. It was unreal how much a filter can blur out the imperfections. Obvs I knew the tech was available but I thought it was just used on photographs.
Anyway Trinny is fab and doesn't seem to use filters. I like her quirks and I think I might buy some of the products she talks about.

I've been having a bad day and ended up in stitches at today's Monday Musings. 'Her new mid-life crisis spot attack regime'! She's brilliant.

Jungfraujoch Mon 20-Feb-17 22:46:09

I just discovered her blogs too! Blimey she's exhausting to watch, but love how she does High Street as well as expensive - made a note of a couple things she recommended.
