Brittney revealed that most of the products had been sent by companies and public relations representatives for her to review them on her vlogs. Some of the luxury cosmetics she owned were 'Too-Faced Born This Way' foundations and 'Urban Decay' lipsticks.
Her videos made Brittney a celebrity almost instantly. Her 'YouTube' channel that primarily hosted makeup hauls, tutorials, and other related videos, soon earned a massive number of subscribers.
