I remember watching Meganheartsmakeup (when she just started, three years or so ago) and she was the only Youtube guru who had a “chick approved” profile. Now after 36M of funding, they are sold to Lockerz.
Let me ask this Q:
1. How is this different from Pinterest?
2. What is the 36M used for?
3. How much is MeganHeartsMakeup brand worth? If she weren’t part of Chickapproved, I highly doubt that the social network would have gained so much traffic
4. How does this solve a problem? Is the problem that women are not able to find good outfits to put together? I am not an avid Pinterest user, mainly because I do not have time for DIYs and I’m not very domestic. I find this very similar to a lot of other fashion sites out there, very similar to a ‘Pinterest for Fashion’ (IE Fashiolista and Pose).
Anyway, it’s so cool how Youtube Beauty Gurus+Techcrunch go together. Yay for Beauty Channels and Technology! I SWEAR, I learn about all the social media channels through Youtube Beauty Gurus!!!
