Facebook LIVE: Preparing For Your First Piercing Appointment
Wednesday August 15, 2018
What did Alley cover on Facebook LIVE this week? This week Alley gave you guys some tips on how to prepare for your first piercing appointment. From what to expect, to what not to do. Alley also answered your questions about piercings and even brought a few of her current favorite body jewelry pieces.
Tune in to Facebook LIVE every Friday @ 1pm EST to chat, ask questions & hang out with us!
Hello babies, it's Friday! Woo-hoo! It's my favorite day of the week, because I love doing live videos with you guys and I have so much information. I know nobody's here yet but so much information about live stuff and what we're going to be doing in the near future.
I hop on Instagram for a couple of minutes before I come over here and just kind of remind people that I'm going to be here. And I usually mess with my lighting a little bit and my camera. Hi, Ellen. But yeah. I really liked this filter last week, so I think I'm going to keep it for a little bit until I start showing jewelry. Hi, Lizzie.
So, we'll hop right into it. There's a couple of things I want to bring up. Belly ring of the month club, still killing it guys, it seems like you're really enjoying it. I'm having so much fun creating those and we're going to be hopefully designing the ones through the end of the year soon. So, we've seen some of them and have some of the pieces picked out and created. They're only going to get better. We have nicer bags coming in, we're going to have stickers.
It's so nice to hear everybody say how excited they are about watching these. Last week, I did a vote for apparel and tee shirt designs and stuff. We let you guys vote on what kind of clothes. We had tons of votes for hoodies and crop tops and we're going to do all sorts of awesome stuff with them. I cannot wait for you guys to see. And we're going to be redoing tee shirts, we'll do all different designs all the time, so they'll be forever changing and really awesome. We have plans in the works to kind of get me out into the world with body candy and meeting people and hopefully being able to have merch for your guys that you can rep body candy.
And speaking of repping body candy, my most exciting thing I want to tell everybody, and I know I've kind of talked about it a little bit on social media this week. We have gotten so many inquiries and people asking about social media influencers and brand ambassadors and stuff like that. And I'm pleased to say that we have pretty much, I think, ironed out how we want to work that. So, this weekend, I'm going to be posting all over social media.
The requirements to be an influencer for the company, there's going to be tiers, so you can earn jewelry, you can earn gift cards. You'll get curated sets of jewelry from me. There are tons of really awesome perks with that. I can't wait for everybody to see those and to see what that is like. I will be posting an email address as well for people to contact us, if you have any interest. I do have a list of people that I have my eye on. I can't wait, I'm so excited.
And we also did do a vote on more monthly clubs and you guys voted ... Oh my God, we had so many votes come in. I'm not going to tell you guys what the top ones were yet, because we're still ironing it out. But there were some clear winners for the next box or two that we will be doing. We do plan on try to keep doing those boxes and we'll have things in place where if you guys sign up for multiple ones, you get discounts. It'll be awesome, I just can't wait to get through all that.
I'm just going to scroll up here for a second, I see so many comments coming in. Making dinner while watching, that's cool. It's only 1 o'clock in the afternoon here, I wish I was making dinner already. Hello everyone. Gloria said she sets an alarm to remember on Friday and we've had a few people say that and that, seriously, makes me so happy. It's so awesome. Hello!
Alright, so I have some jewelry with me today. I grabbed a couple of different pieces, nothing too crazy, I'm not going to lie. But what I did, I bought stuff to kind of show you guys how I wear my jewelry and I know that I've shown you a little bit of some stuff before that I've made. The first one I think that you've seen, is probably this one. Oh, we got to switch back from this filter, because you can't see the jewelry that well on it. Maybe I can be a princess. That filtered me really gross. Why is that doing that? Hello. This is kind of cute. I know you guys tell me I don't need a filter, but I think they're so cute. I'm going to go to no filter.
The first piece I've shown you guys before, so this is actually an amethyst belly ring and I took a nipple bar that I really liked, that the sparkly gem on top. And I mixed them. This is really awesome if you have multiple piercings, I really like to color stuff and make them more exciting. The balls that come on these stone belly rings are just a plain silver, which is awesome.
Hi, Hannah! I see you. Better late than never, girl. I am going to be doing a giveaway, but not right away. Oh, I forgot to say that on this live video. I'm going to be doing a live video giveaway today for fifty bucks. Somewhere after I'm done showing some jewelry and talking about some things, I will be picking a winner and then you will receive a message with a code for that, so that's really exciting.
I forgot I'm doing so many exciting things today that I am all over the place. Which I guess isn't abnormal for me. Also, comment ... Don't be mean about it but I normally like smaller septum rings and today I wore this bigger one and I'm liking it.
Hi Skylar, Hi Kelsey, hello everybody. But yeah, this is super fun. I can't wait for you guys to see all the awesome septum rings we're about to get in. I'm really into the stackers where it looks like you're wearing three or five different rings at once. And that's a look that a lot of times is so beautiful but they're hard to find someone where they're not hundreds of dollars. Which is totally fine. Quality products are totally worth every penny. We’re going to order some of these septum stackers and I can't wait for you guys to see them. They're really, really cute. They should be here, hopefully sooner than later.
Just to get you guys amped up about something, I always do sneak peaks of new products on Snapchat, if you don't follow us already yeah, it's bodycandy.com for that. And then Instagram is @bodycandy, Twitter is @bodycandy. You're already on Facebook, YouTube, body candy body jewelry. Or the slash body candy body jewelry. Oh! My ring is also from body candy. This is the abalone shell, so this matches the butterfly belly ring of the month club right now. Snapchat this weekend, I shared the industrial that matches that. It's the shell inlay, yeah. It's really fun and pretty.
Let me see, Laura says she uses septum rings in her daith ... Actually, clickers and seamless rings are made to wear, septum daith you can usually kind of wear them in your cartilage too, depending on where they're sitting. I have so many good comments coming in about this septum. Here's my thing, I love it, but I want to get my filtrum pierced and I feel like it would block that out but maybe I'm wrong. I'm always learning with you guys, so I don't know everything.
So, in line with the amethyst belly ring that I just showed you, I kind of wanted to show you, we have stone belly rings in everything. Here's another one that I changed the ball on. This is an opalite belly ring, stone in the bottom here. So again, if you have multiple piercings, this is really cool. You can mix and match your jewelry to make more custom pieces. I love opalite, it's so cute.
And also, with all the stone stuff we have the matching plugs, so we have the opalite plug. Here's another opalite belly ring I put together with a nipple bar top on it. And this was one of the clusters, the opal clusters. See, you can make them so cute. All of these belly rings I'm showing you come with just a plain normal silver ball on them, like one of these little guys. And I just like to have a little bit more color and a little bit more, little more pop. I like a little flair.
The daith thing with headaches, I have heard so many people say it helped them, I've heard people say it didn't help them. I will tell you every reputable, awesome piercer that I know will tell you there's a chance that those things can help but it's not guaranteed. Some people had relief, which is really, really awesome. That makes me happy to hear for people.
In the same line of stone stuff, I have the tiger eye plug and then here is the belly ring, which I put a glitter sparkle ball on the top of. You can see the glitter shining. This cutie little tiger eye baby.
Hailey just asked, can balls be taken off and made into a tongue ring? Yes and no. You have to read. If it's 14 gauge, like an industrial bar, a tongue ring and a nipple bar are all generally 14 gauge. Theoretically, the balls fit on everything but something to show you that I actually ran into when I was doing this stuff. Maybe I didn't end up bringing that one. Some stuff will sit at different angles. You just have to be careful. If it's just the balls, just pay attention to the gauge being the same size and the threading, internal or external. That's the biggest thing. But yes, you can change your own balls. That is the simple answer to that.
Thank you, hi Corey. I see people saying they love mixing and matching and that they've been doing it for years and that they love body candy so that all is super awesome. Here is the jade belly ring that I put a cute, just like green electro-plated titanium ball on. I know they're two different shades of green and they might not necessarily completely match ... Oh here, we'll focus here again. But see, it's kind of spring-y. It's like, oh, I'm wearing green, I'm wearing green plugs. Everything's green. And I love that and of course we have the enstatite plugs that match. I'm super pumped, I love all my stone plugs. They're my favorite, I wear them very often. The black agate ones are one of my go-to's, because they're nice and simple and they have the diamond facet caught on the front. So, they have a little shape to them but they're not like, holy crap you're wearing this huge, crazy plug.
Not that I have this problem now, but before I worked for body candy and did body jewelry stuff, I had professional job. I was an office manager, like an administrative assistant for a web design company. And I had some other jobs, too. I worked in a coffee shop, I waitressed, I did retail, I did all sorts of stuff. But this is the first job that I've ever had that it's been like, yes, you can just wear jewelry. My focus before I had a job here was always, how to wear jewelry and look nice and professional at the same time. But transition into going out and having fun and being pretty. And I feel like that's kind of what I still embody now.
This is fun, I feel like my jewelry is, it's pretty when you look at the pieces separately. They're like little pieces of art that you just get to wear. But everything flows, I have the ring that's shell, I have the stone, I've got the rose gold. I just, I really like that.
I do like to remind everybody, if you ever need help curating things or picking some stuff out, you can hit me up on Snapchat or Instagram the best. That's where I have easy access because you're always in my pocket, on my phone. Sometimes it does take me a little bit to respond, please understand I do get a lot of messages. But I do try to take my time. I'm sure that anybody that's on here that does message me will tell you, if I get a chance, on a Thursday night, I will sit there and chit chat with people if they need help. And I never mind answering questions, I'm very honest if I can't answer or if there's a medical reason that I really can't answer for you. But I love helping.
Rose asked if we had any double zeros, said she needs to size up and only has the metal ones and wants something cute. We carry all the stone plugs that I've been showing today, all these in double zero and actually, hold on a minute. These are my favorite plugs that we carry and we only have them in double zero right now. That's it. They are a lace agate and I grabbed two different ones that you can see how different the shades can be on them. They're green and mustard and orange. They're so cool. I do not have these in my size but I'm hoping that we end up getting them back, because I would wear these all the time.
Allie said that my jewelry is not too much, it all ties together. Thank you. There are some girls in Buffalo, let me tell you what. They are inspiring. I never would have been brave enough to wear big jewelry. But I'm trying to get better at it, because it does look really cool. Thank you, Laney for telling me I'm pretty. April said I always respond back super-fast and that she doesn't have to wait long, thank you so much. No problem, I have no problem doing that ever when I can.
I do have some septum jewelry with me today, Ariel and I will be showing that in a second. Oh, we had this, and I'm not sure, I can't remember the stone off the top of my head but we do have a blue, variegated stone. I don't know if you can see it with the light shining on it. But I just put a cute little blue electro-plated titanium ball on that as well. So, I tried to grab all the different colors that we had for the stone belly rings to show you guys. We do carry a lot of the stone stuff in up to an inch, Curtis, just do you know. Lizzie asked what other jewelry can be used for a helix piercing.
I forgot a belly ring but there's a reason I forgot it. It's the turquoise stone, it had the plain silver ball. I found we had another belly ring that had the matching turquoise ball, so I mixed the two belly rings. We have the turquoise plugs that go with that. We also have the braided BCR with the little turquoise ball that matches that. We have lots of these rings that have really cute little details on them. And if you can see it hangs off the side. So, if you put this in your helix, which I do have mine but I don't wear them anymore. I might have to get it redone I guess, actually. But if you did wear them in your helix, the little flower places on the outside ... It's so cute. I bet you this would really sweet if you had them spaced properly up here, you could have little flowers all down your ear. And we carry these in every metal finish, all different stone types and that's how pretty much everything we carry is, we have thousands and thousands of products so we do have a lot of matching sets of stuff. If you have piercings over your whole body, it's really easy to end up with a whole matching set.
Everbody that's commenting is amazing. In order to win the gift card, I'm going to randomly pick somebody that has been commenting. It doesn't matter if you've commented more than anyone else or less than anyone else, just drop an emoji or better yet, if you would like to see me do live videos at home, comment that. You can do an emoji or that I guess, just whatever. Let me know you're here, let me know you're interacting and paying attention. That's the most important part for me. And also, let me see ... Marina asked about dimple jewelry, we definitely do have dimple jewelry, although it's hard for me to answer on size because everybody's body is different.
The live videos at home would be really fun for you guys, because you would be able to see my kitties and I have little rats and I just bought home two little baby ones yesterday, so I have a little rat family that is so cute. And I would also really like to do tutorials, maybe I'll make a jewelry box with you guys. Not next Friday, but the Friday after that. We'll plan something out. We'll totally mix those up and have some fun with it. Somebody was asking about 9/16ths plugs and gauges. We totally carry all the sizes, pretty common between zero and an inch. That middle spot is a little bit more of a focus, so 9/16ths to 5/8ths we have a lot. Also double zero we have a lot of.
Piper said she loves me and my life and she would love to see my rats and stuff, that's so exciting. Well I'm definitely going to be doing that at home once and those will be a little later for you guys, too, which I thought maybe would be easier. Hanging out with me on a Friday or Saturday night as opposed to trying to catch me in the afternoon. Although I know everybody is all over the world and kind of spaced out.
While I'm talking the one thing I did want to remember, because I've had a lot of people asking about this. The septum ring I've been wearing for the last couple of weeks, the rose gold teardrop, this little cutie. We do have a couple back there. I've been telling people that I was pretty sure we were out of them and I did see a handful, so if you really liked this, go snag them. We will get them back in stock at some point, but I just knew a lot of people were asking about these.
I also bought, for septum and daith stuff, some of our little cutie. This is a little UFO that I just think is so cute. We have, I probably don't even need my pliers. We have a little planet too, and we have a little alien head. This looks really cute in the septum, we have lots and lots of people that submit pictures with these that are so sweet.
Hannah asked if it hurt to gauge my ears. If you do it properly, it really shouldn't because you should be waiting for your body to acclimate as you go. If it's hurting you all the time, then you're not doing something right and you're not listening to your body and you're being in a rush. Which is very hard when you're excited.
Allie asked my opinion on dermal piercings. I think they're so cute and I really want one. Sometimes they're just a temporary piercing and I think that's what's holding me back. I really wanted to do some dermals in my flowers. I have a tree that goes up from the bottom of my hip, up my back. And I thought, oh it'd be so cute if I had all my little blooms pierced. I'm too afraid because I don't want them to heal out. But I think they're so beautiful.
Rachel asked what's the best way to look after a new piercing. Best tips for new piercings. Do not touch it more than you have to. The only time you should be touching it is when you are cleaning it, once a day, in the shower, is highly recommended because the hot water is really good for it. Salt solution, anything from H2Ocean, which we do also have a mouthwash. This is a foam. There is a spray, there's different options for this, this is the salt solution already pre-made for you. It's awesome. A lot of piercers don't recommend it anymore but I do still use the gold, antibacterial Dial sometimes. I notice especially if I'm having a little bit of sensitivity with my belly button ring, that seems to help me clear up really quick.
And recommendations for nose studs that don't fall out easily and aren't super uncomfortable. Nose studs come in four different back types or maybe even more than that, really. The main ones are the bone, which are the straight one they have a little ball. I don't really like those, I don't like the feeling of them. The corkscrews might help you, you can turn those in then they can't just turn out. My biggest recommendation is always, I love fish tails, now that I know what they are. They're the ones that come and they have a really long bar and it looks like you ordered the wrong thing. You take those to your piercer and they cut them to fit your nose properly and they bend them. Those sit so snug, these don't ever move on me and I love that about them.
Holly, we do carry VCH jewelry. I don't often show it on the live videos, not because I don't want to but because I haven't figured out how to make that into a thing. We do have it if you search on bodycandy.com in the keyword search.
April, your son's so cute. So many people saying they love watching me, thank you so much. Thank you, Jennifer, she loves my septum ring, which we were worried about. Alright, Lilly we will be getting in a bunch more medusa jewelry. There is some back there yet that's not listed on the site yet and I've also been scoping really hard because there are so many pretty little ditties and I want to make sure that we have all the best stuff in there.
Everybody that's saying they love my life and like seeing things, you can follow me on Instagram @bodycandy, Twitter @bodycandy and Snapchat is bodycandy.com. My personal stuff is also around, I know a bunch of you guys follow. I see people saying that they thought things were so cute. Because they can see them. Oh, I guess I shared the rats on Snapchat last night, after I broke it to my husband.
Thanks, Michael. Hello everybody that's waving, I see so many nice comments. Liz asked how often I do videos, I do this every Friday and 1 o'clock and we are looking to up that. So I think I'm going to still keep doing it every Friday at one, sometimes I'm not going to be in the office anymore, I'm going to travel around and show you guys the city and maybe even travel around a little bit in general and show you guys cool stuff and show you what I'm doing for body candy. And I'm also going to start doing the live videos at home. I think I'm going to try to do them every other week. Keep commenting about that, because I do go back and read all these comments, if I miss any questions, I'm so sorry, I do go back and look at them. I use your responses to either curate next week’s live videos or to talk about stuff on Snapchat or Instagram. So, you guys inspire me, which I love.
Let me see, Tonya said she doesn't know how the space ones would look on her. I was super scared of that, too, and they're really cute because they're not overly ... They're not gemmed or anything like that, they're very basic. They sit so ... I don't want to say plainly, because they're really not, they stick out because they're unique. I just think they're really cool.
Hi Samantha. Rose asked if my septum hurt to get done, negative one pain. It was nothing. It was the least painful experience for body mods I've ever had. Which actually while I'm thinking of it, before I get too far, I'll answer some more questions in a minute.
But I did want to kind of go down the list of stuff, preparing for getting a tattoo or a piercing. Always make sure you know what you want before you go into the shop. It seems fun to just kind of go in and be like, I saw this thing and just want one. And sometimes, that's totally fine. But knowing what you want or placement or the jewelry that you want to wear for a piercing, is really helpful for your artist. Which I would call a piercer an artist as well. They go to school and learn a lot about placement and your body in order to do that for you.
Going in there with a good image helps them. It's their job to help you but it's not their job to create this whole thing and then you're nitpicking at it and pulling it apart because they don't know what you want. So always keep that in mind.
Always eat a healthy meal and drink lots of water before you go in. I always make sure I take a vitamin the morning of, don't drink the night before, don't do drugs, don't do anything like that. I was saying eat, drink, vitamins, take good care of your body the day of. Take a shower, that's not even to be mean or anything like that. Think about the fact that you're going into a shop that you want to be clean. Keep yourself clean to help keep the shop clean. It's kind to your piercer or your tattoo artist if they are up in your grill for hours or even just 20 minutes, they deserve to not have to deal with smelly and dirty people.
So always make sure that the day that you're doing that. I always make days out of this stuff, I don't know about you guys but I turn it into a treat yourself day. I go get breakfast, I get snacks, I always take Gatorade and some snacks with me. And I plan on hanging out, going out for dinner after because I'm lazy, I'm injured, it's the best. So that's important.
Don't bring your kids. You are not the exception, it's not to be mean, but again this is an environment where somebody is altering somebody's body. Children running around and stuff, it's cool, I love when people have nice children. But you are never the exception in the tattoo shop or piercing shop. It's just the truth. Remember me saying that always.
Always tip, that's a really great tip for you. Even five or ten bucks is really nice. I use the 20% rule when I can. Your artists work really hard to give you the look that you want and to help you mold your body into how you want yourself to be and feel and I think that's so important to acknowledge. Don't try to low ball them. I know sometimes it's like, what you want that much for a tattoo, you want that much for that piercing. It's that much for a reason. And it's your body forever and you should take good care of it. Don't ever do that. I think that was pretty much most my tips. Making sure that you read the room. It's cool if you have an artist that's being loud and talkative and wants to listen to music, but if they seem like they need to focus, maybe let them focus. They're touching your body.
Jenny said the alien head septum ring is going to make her get that specific piercing just to wear it. It can also be worn in a daith in the middle of your ear here, it will fit in this little spot here. And I think that's so cute, I do not have my daith done yet. I'm planning out my curated ear right now, so hopefully soon.
Lots of people talking about dermals today. Cassie said she always makes her own salt solution, you absolutely can, it's super easy. The bottles are really nice for traveling, like H2Ocean and stuff since they come in the smaller ounce bottles, they're easy to pack away. And especially if I'm traveling and I don't want to deal with trying to carry all sorts of stuff. I can just grab a little baggie of cotton balls and throw that in there. It's the best.
Jessica said she's having a hard time changing her nose jewelry. If you're ever having a hard time with that stuff, go to your piercer. They're totally willing to help you, they usually charge you a really small fee for their time, it's like ten or twenty bucks. Sometimes it's free, it depends on how recent it was, I'm sure, too. But if you're having a hard time, that would be my recommendation. Because they can take care of things without yanking on anything and they can see it better. It's just so much better for you.
Patricia said she uses septum rings in her conch, too, which I'm sure could totally work and does work for some people, just always make sure you're paying attention to the diameter of your ear. Holly said she's looking for VCH jewelry, as I said before, search VCH jewelry on bodycandy.com. There's a keyword search and everything we carry will come up. Hailey asked about barbell industrials that she heard that they don't heal well. I don't think I would want to be healed without a barbell if I was going to wear one. I do see sometimes where people get pierced with two separate rings and they heal separately and that's also okay. But most of the people that I have that hit me up on Snapchat and say they had a problem have that. I do just want to point that out.
I actually would think a barbell is probably smart, especially if you want to wear a barbell there. Most piercers are going to ask you what you want to wear. When I got this nostril done, they asked me, do you want to wear a stud or do you want to wear a ring. Because that changes the placement.
Let me see, so many people saying they love my kitties and stuff. I'm glad people are finding me informative. I do my best. If I don't know something right now, like I said, I do try to come back next week. If there's ever any topics that you guys want to see a live video on, please drop them in the comments. As I say, 100 times throughout these, I do go read these comments later.
Piper said she loves my look because it's simple with a natural pop. That's what I go for. I don't like to look too overdone but I like to be a little sassy. If I want my makeup to be really serious, that's when I get my hard wing. Alright we get real when it's going there. Kayla asked if body candy is my business. No, I run most of the social media, I'm not the only person here. We do have a marketing team but I am just the face of the company and I am the active face of the social media for you guys. So, I'm kind of like a liaison between you guys and the direct people that run this. That's why I always tell you guys to comment. I take your comments, I compile them into lists, I take all your messages from Snapchat and add those in and all of your Instagram things and then once and a while, I give my boss this big list and I say, these are all the things that everybody's asking for. And we go through and we use that to order new stuff. So that's really important.
Justine said she sends a lot of her clients our way, which is awesome, thank you so much. Hannah you'll definitely get the scoop on places to see in Buffalo over the next little bit here, there's lots of really cool stuff around here. Monica asked for a makeup live, I can totally work that out. Maybe what I'll do, if we want to work in a live video next week, I do have a show next Friday night. But maybe I can do a get ready with me makeup video. And if not, the next time I'm going out on a Friday night or a Saturday night, that's what we'll do. We'll hang out, everybody always asks me how I get my wings so.
Lots of people saying they love watching the videos, it gives them lots of ideas. April said she thought her septum was going to hurt so badly but it wasn't that bad at all and it healed so quickly. Which is totally true, my septum healed in a month, maybe five weeks, which is a really short time. Somebody just asked about that, too. You can flip up your septum immediately as well, as long as your piercer uses a horseshoe or retainer. One of the metal ones that drops down. They're usually going to, if they don't, you should run, because they're not a good piercer. That's like that so you have room for swelling and stuff. But you should be able to flip septum's up right away.
I love seeing all these people saying they send people to body candy. It's so nice. Alright, I try not to read too much while I have you guys here, but then I told you guys to comment, so I have lots of comments. But like I said, I will make sure I go through and hit something. I see somebody saying they had an issue with their coupon on body candy ... Make sure if you guys ever have a problem with your order, if you got something you're not happy with, once in a while, it happens. If you don't know where your order is, if you are having an issue with the website, customer service is always the best.
I feel so bad when I tell you guys to go to customer service, I know you guys probably think I'm pushing you off and just giving you a copy and pasted response. I do that because I'm not going to be sufficient at helping you. I can't see all the information you're looking for, I don't have access to it. So, I direct you there because we have a team of people that specifically are working here in order to do that. They're very, very wonderful people, they're very nice. Do not be scared to call them, they also have an email if you're afraid to talk to people on the phone. Or if you're like me and you're antisocial sometimes. Sometimes I just need to email.
I am at Body Candy right now, I'm kind of in a corner, it's not really an office over here. I have a little corner, if anybody watches The Office, that's pretty much what it's like here. It's a building that's got a parking lot on the outside. And then the front is like an office building, there's an open cubicle area. There are little offices and then you can walk though these doors.
My favorite tattoo and piercing shop, I have a couple in the Buffalo area that I really, really love. I do go to Ink and Style and see James. He's in Rockport, New York. He's amazing, wonderful, sweet human. Always explains exactly what's going on, I just love that so much. I also really love Cow Poke. Anna has been my piercer since I was younger. So, I really always highly recommend.
Monica asked about my lipstick. I know I've told you guys about Lime Crime Velveteens before. This is the Loreal Infallible stuff, it's like ten bucks for a tube. I'm not even kidding, I'm not getting paid or endorsed or anything. I wish, I'm going to try. This lipstick is too good. I eat full meals with this lipstick on and it doesn't budge. I go out drinking, I sleep with it on, I wake up in the morning, perfect lipstick, still. It's unbelievable, I can't even believe it. Unbelievable, can't even believe it. Okay. We're getting to that point of the video.
Alright so what I'm going to do here, is I'm going to scroll down and make sure that there's nothing too pressing that's going on down here. And then what I'm going to do ... Love from Pakistan. Oh yay, I love seeing where everybody's from. I am going to be doing a social experiment with that soon, I cannot wait. I want to show everybody that we have worldwide customers, we ship international and I interact with so many wonderful people that live all over the world. It's one of my favorite parts of my job. I just can't wait to show you guys how awesome that is for me.
Adriana is talking about how awesome our customer service is. They're fast, they're very helpful and kind, they are. They're so great. I think that was pretty much all I had for today. I am going to be picking the live winner, so I'm going to do this, you guys are going to be able to see. I'm just going to fling my phone and wherever the comments end up, I'm just going to point. Because I want this to be so fair. And I'm going to start doing these giveaways all the time, so make sure you're coming in every Friday to do this. Alright, you ready? This is so scary. Laney. Laney Sanders. You are in the middle girl, so you are our gift card winner for today. Maybe you can send us a DM actually on Facebook right now and then I will get a code over to you right away for your gift card.
People are saying they love my eyes, thank you so much. Emily, I'm so sorry, I know it's your birthday. But make sure you guys are poking in all the time. Thank you for participating, I want to, like I said, do more stuff like this, that's really inclusive and fun and interactive. So, make sure that when you use your gift card, you send me pictures. That's always super important. Stay tuned for the influencer program stuff that I was talking about.
For anyone who wasn't here at the beginning of the video, we are going to be doing the influencer, brand ambassador stuff and it's a really cool way to be involved with our products. I know there's a lot of people that have interest in that and I think it's so awesome to see people saying congratulations to someone else for winning the gift card. That's wonderful, thank you so much for everybody being awesome and sweet to each other. That makes me so happy.
Not to get too corny with you guys before I go but one world, you guys. We're all just people and I think it's important to be nice. In fact, that's my thing. This weekend, please go do a good deed for someone. Just one, I don't care what it is, just do a good deed and think of me, alright.
