Saying that YouTube gurus and beauty influencers are powerful players in the cosmetic and beauty world is an understatement, and brands seem to know this. As a result, YouTube beauty discount codes are some of the best discounts fans can score thanks to some of their favorite beauty vloggers. Being a subscriber to your favorite YouTube channel very literally pays off. While criticism may be lobbed at YouTubers for supporting products they don't believe in just for an affiliate kick back, they are quick to dismiss those claims, and for fans, that's enough.
It's the criticism from viewers that make affiliate and discount codes somewhat controversial especially when it comes to monthly favorite videos and reviews. While the hesitancy to trust YouTubers if they're getting paid for discount codes used and good reviews made is valid, one of the major markers of a true belief in a product is repeated use. YouTubers like MannyMUA, Jaclyn Hill, and Alexandra Garza repeatedly utilize the products they rave about and have for years — Morphe anyone?
Plus, like brands, YouTube gurus' influence is only as good as their subscriber numbers and reach. Any influencer touting a product that is truly sub-par is clearly going to have it effect their believability and respect in the beauty community. No one wants that. Plus, can we not just believe people anymore? Naive, maybe. Optimistic, sure.
So what YouTube affiliate and discount codes can save you money on new products? Brace yourself because there are a lot.
