What are you going with this?

Almost every MUA uses Bioderma, so I don't think you can compare that at all ;)

I didn't stitch them together or anything, that's just the two thumbnails which came up together. I actually don't think Pixiwoo copy Lisa (although I'm a bit iffy with the smokey eye video). I just posted them because it was a strange coincidence :)

I saw the same thing and considered making a screenshot of it too.

I'm sure Sam decided to use Bioderma after Lisa raved it, since Sam has no original thoughts in that head of hers. Also, Lisa is so much prettier than Sam <3

As much as dislike the Woos and yes, I do think they copy lotsa elements from Lisa, Bioderma certainly wasnt one of them. It's like a must amongst makeup artists, totally raved worldwide and I'm almost 100% sure they spoke about it even before Lisa had her own channel. This thumbnail thing is probably a coincidence.
But these chicks lost all their credibillity and now we suspect they are always ripping Lisa or some other artist off.

I was wondering, they have their channel for such a long time and never invited their aunt, who's a makeup artist. They lost the chance to have invite guests before Lisa ! :D

The ignorance in here is so astonishing, I had to register an account just for this one...

Sam talked about Bioderma on the 3rd of July, 2009!!!!!!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-bewixo ... ADEEB0B0E9

Lisa's first video was on the 11th of December, 2009, and she has talked about numerous products that Pixiwoo have mentioned before, such as Bioderma, Liz Earl's cleanser etc. No one has blamed Lisa for copying Pixiwoo, have they?

Most of these "copy" claims are irrelevant and based on personal assumptions; it really boggles the mind that people actually believe in them. :roll:

I agree, most people are just picking elements from thin air out of their own disliking of Pixiwoo. Like I said, I don't personally feel that they copy her, I just saw the thumbnails and thought that they'd be nifty for this section of the forum.

Yup, that's exactly what I gathered. I've been watching both Pixiwoo and Lisa Elridge since day 1, and I can honestly say I haven't missed ONE video of both of them. I don't feel the Pixiwoos are copying... everything people accuse them of, they have done before in one of their videos. I have read so many silly accusations that can be easily counteracted like in the case of Bioderma, e.g. that they copied the "use the back of my hand first" from Lisa. People just jump into conclusions out of their dislike.

For what it's worth, I don't think the Pixiwoo's purposely set out to copy Lisa video by video (although the acne video made me raise an eyebrow). It's just that they seem to get most of their ideas from what the top pro mua's are doing in magazines, runways, and red carpets and since Lisa is one of those top people, it makes it seem like they are copying her. I hope that makes some sense.

Now that I remembered, about the acne video... I've read so many times that Pixiwoo copied the Vichy Demablend part, that they used it only because Lisa used it. They mentioned the SAME PRODUCT in videos three years ago, e.g. in their tatoo covering video.

I don't think Pixiwoo are so stupid to copy from Lisa on purpose. They don't need to copy, they've got their own fanbase, and their target group is different. Pixiwoo and Lisa Elridge have completely different channels, and believe me, it's quite normal to like BOTH, like I do. I get different things from the both of them. How boring would Utube be if everyone did the same! Pixiwoo are known for re-creating other people's works, and they do it well, so why not just sit and enjoy it? Jeez...

I'm not sure if you're aiming your message at me since I just said that I don't think the Pixiwoos purposely copy Lisa. And as I alluded to, if you're re-creating the work of top-tier professionals and someone who is part of that tier is also making videos then it stands to reason that there is going to be some similarities in looks, products, and techniques. Therefore, right or wrong some people will accuse you of copying.

No, nothing to do with you, I actually agree with what you say. Since they're recreating other people's works, they're bound to use the same things/techniques at one point or another, and that's why the copying comments start to emerge--even though most of them are ridiculous and can be counteracted with some research, like I've mentioned above.

However, I think the word "copy" might be too harsh when it comes to the makeup industry, where rarely something is truly original. Even Lisa is "copying" techniques she has learnt from other makeup artists. It's hard to say who's copying from whom, as there is a limit to makeup techniques. I prefer to think that people get inspired from someone else and they just put their own touch into it. And I see nothing wrong with a channel of recreations--it's what made them famous, why change it now? If some people have a problem with it, well... to each their own. It's easy to unsubscribe, as easy it is NOT to watch. One would think, right? But obviously people here still do both, if only to nitpic and spur some venom.

I think the acne video was a copy of Lisa's, it;s like they watched her video 5 minutes before they started filming theirs.
Not only are the products similar, but the way Nic was speaking, too.
Nic is a religious user of medium-full coverage foundation, so, when she says she wants to use a light foundation and full coverage concealer only on the acne so it gives the illusion you have light coverage on, it sounds just like Lisa.

Yes I agree about the acne video. Before Lisa they only used mac concealer to cover up acne.

Also it's so ridiculous not that they use bioderma, but that they have to pick and copy Lisa's thumbnails!

Wow they must be running out of ideas. Since they make money copying other makeup artists looks..I guess they have no problem with stealing content from others. So much for respecting intellectual content and copyrights..lol. Oops they aren't exactly intellects to begin with are they?

The acne video and the smokey look for hooded eyes - both causes for concern.

I fully admit to being a full fledged 'hater' of PixiPoops and it's mostly to Sam, because she's so rude on her Facebook page. Just a total surly bitch through and through. This is because it continues to irk me that people act like these two sisters are worth likening to Lisa Eldridge. Lisa is a professional, they aren't. Once people (pretty much nobody here is guilty of this, btw) stop acting like they're on the same level, I'll have little to bitch about :)

Oh and it was never about the products used in the acne covering video-- it was the 'let the natural luminosity of your skin shine through!' which goes against everything Nic has ever said. This is a woman who piles on full coverage foundations to hide her rosacea. She doesn't know what natural luminosity is. That was stolen from Lisa, no doubt about it.

Let's not forget that before the acne video, the pixiwoos described themselves on twitter ''as sisters whatever " ( I cant remember it exactly) but after Lisa's " Mother and make up artist " , Sam changed hers to Mother/Sister/MakeUpArtist . Ok, no need to remind me she is also a mother yada yada yada. However, why does she choose the same kind of description as someone who's in the same business as she ???

And there was also the ''no makeup makeup'' tutorial. Indeed the Pixiwoos uploaded it first, but it was well known that it was becoming Lisa's next video as first she asked her viewers to choose two looks so she would do a tutorial, and then she announced the 'no makeup look' was the winner.

Everybody that follows the sisters for a while can clearly say it's not a recent thing that they ran short of ideas. Countless videos of Nic using brulee on the lid, omega or wedge on her crease, her beloved BLACKTRACKS .... ZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz What about all the Adelle, Cheryl Cole, Marilyn, Barbie tutorials ?

But to me the worst was Sam's awful reply on why not uploading the Kate Moss tutorial, saying ''someone else'' has done something '' similar'', refusing to acknowledge the work of a well respect MUA, Charlote Tilbury - who btw did not do ''something similar'', she created the original look they were replicating. I wonder if this kind of attitude doesnt build a bad rep for her in the business. Very unprofessional imo.

The way I see it, at the end of the day they made their careers COPYING (recreating, whatever) other artists' work, not by working hard on portfolios and working their way up to work on the type of clients Lisa and Charlotte work with. They are in completely different leagues.

Personally, I think the copying of looks and showing the average joe watching YouTube how to do them is not too terrible. It's useful to the viewer and Sam and Nic do it a bit better than the teenage girls sitting in their bedrooms who attempt it. They have good quality camera and lighting and upload regularly. As a makeup ARTIST, I would not want this to be my career. I would want to be out there working on faces and seeing my work published and used, setting trends etc. like Lisa and Charlotte can and do. But hey, I wouldn't turn up my nose at what Sam and Nic must make either. And, being parents to young children, it's probably a more ideal job than being a proper makeup artist.

All that said, it grinds my gears that they get all uppity over being accused of copying. It's what they do. They aren't doing a Red Carpet look for Cheryl Cole and then showing us how to do it. They're taking another artists work and showing us how we can achieve it. Nothing more. They need to realise what basic bitches they are go with it. They also shouldn't blatantly rip off people's philosophies and techniques, especially when they seem to go against what they had been preaching before.

I feel myself watching he pixiwoos very carefully after this whole copying thing...
I noticed something yesterday though. On Lisa's 'ultimate guide to red lipsticks' (at the 14.52 mark) and her 'trend dark lipsticks' (at the 12.40 mark) she mentions how you can put your lipstick on first then you can adapt your blush/eyes/rest of your face to your lips.
On pixiwoo's 'style me beautiful, asma and halima' at the 9.15 mark, Sam also mentions this. I dont recall the pixiwoo's mentioning this tip before, correct me if I'm wrong though.

@fliflop
Yeah I totally agree - I am subscribed to Pixies for a long time and have never ever seen them doing blush after lipstick! That was a bit awkward to see especially after I saw Lisa "always"! doing that. Secondly I do hate the comment of Sam regarding Kate Moss video (which I have never heard of) omg - so rude!
After all I think life shows who is who and sisters are practically enjoying what they do, even though last channel called "Body Talk" is a bit of crappy. Sisters cannot create anything better than what they actually steal.
