Hey y’all, welcome and welcome back!
I’m going to try really hard to stay
in frame while I do this really quick intro,
because uh, we have a big box today! Oh my
god, so this is Splash bBauty from the new LOL
OMG Queens line, and she’s gorgeous already. I
can tell you in the box, she’s looking so pretty,
she’s got so many things to unbox. Clearly this
is kind of a deluxe edition, where she’s got
a lot more clothes than the typical LOL OMG,
some accessories, extra shoes. I’m very excited
to get into it. Everything is on a pretty clear
display here at the front, we’ve got beautiful
art for Splash Beauty, and then on the back
we have even more beautiful art. I actually just
really, really like the way that she’s drawn here,
I think she looks elegant, and fun , and
just all of the positive adjectives you
could possibly put to her. I’m so excited for
this. I’m sure that I have gone off ad nauseam
about how much I love mermaids at some point on
this channel, I love mermaids. Like I really,
really, really love mermaids, so for OMG, a
line that has typically pretty good details
and quality and all of that stuff, to
mermaid themed doll is a dream come true for me.
That being said, I can hardly be expected
to wait much longer to get into my dream,
so I’m gonna go ahead and stop leaning off to the
side here and unbox her off camera really quick,
and that way we can lay her all out look at
all the wonderful things that she comes with,
and just talk about her some more. And I can rant
and rave about how excited I am while you actually
get to look at the doll, so I’m gonna get to that,
I will see you guys in one moment. Wow, okay,
here is everything that Splash Beauty comes with,
there’s obviously a ton of it. So much so that
it barely fits in frame here, we’re making it
happen though. There’s so much to talk about,
and I don’t actually want this video to be
like 30 minutes long, so I’m going to try to
get through it while also giving you guys all
the details you need. Stand, sparkly blue,
it’s a stand. We’ve got kind of an iridescent baby
pink brush. There are two body hangers that came
with her extra outfits, and there is a third
one in here, I just haven’t taken it out yet.
Just like Sways, she comes with sort of a little
letter here saying, “Let’s party,” shaped like
an envelope. And then on the inside we’ve got a
picture of her, and then a little quote from her.
And then we also have the poster here. Again,
I don’t know if you can see it, I’m realizing
that it is intentional um now, but Sways’
poster was cut kind of not quite a rectangle.
This one is not either, so like there you have it.
And then that is her throne back there. I really
did think that on Sways’ it might have been
a mistake, but I was wrong, it is on purpose.
Then clothing. Oh–oh my god, there’s
so many things, I don’t know…I’m
gonna start I think with my least favorite thing,
which is this skirt. It’s not bad, it’s just not
as much my style. I think that the sequins
definitely give off very like mermaid scale vibes,
I just don’t know that i love the execution of the
overall thing. I don’t know if that makes sense,
I think I like the concept, but not the finished
product. But yeah, it’s a little sequined skirt,
Velcro’s in the back. We have this like faux
leather, and then a lace-up detail in the front,
which I do like, I think that’s a fun little
detail. I like that this is like actual stitching,
and an actual little bow, that’s a very cute. Good
detail, good quality, just not my personal style.
This whole–I guess third? I don’t even know what
number it would be, but this whole little set from
her is actually just my least favorite in general.
The top, again not bad. Jacket, not really a top.
Um, faux little zipper here, lots of
different materials and colors going on.
I do love the ribbon on the side, I think that the
kind of bumps are fun, a little fake buckle there.
And then on the back it has a print of a
mermaid tail going into the water. So again
I think it’s cute, I think it’s well executed.
It’s definitely very beautiful for someone else,
it’s just not my personal style. Okay, those
two are easy to get out of the way with. Uh,
let’s go shoes real quick. So these shoes in box,
I thought I was gonna find a little bit boring,
just because they’re all pearlescent white.
It’s not the most exciting thing, but honestly
the more I look at them, the more I love
the simplicity. I think that they’re just
so beautiful, the molding is so fun with all of
these little like studs and bumps and all of that.
I don’t know, it’s weird because usually I like
things to be super in your face, and detailed,
and painted differently, but these are simple,
and yet very, very cute. I like them a lot.
Her other shoes though, I definitely like
more. Wow! Oh my god, I love this bronze
kind of like sand heel that she’s got going
on with the platform, and then the plastic is
actually slightly sparkly and transparent,
which you guys know I’m a huge sucker for.
And we’ve got all of these little white studs on
these straps. All the studs seem to be painted
really, really well. Little buckles down the
sides. So yeah, I just–the details on these
those are very elegant, I think these are a lot
more fun for me so, personally I like these,
but they are both really nice shoes. Then she has
like a little swimsuit, which I thought was just
adorable. Of course, the classic mermaid seashell
bra sort of motif going on there. Three studs,
fake pearls on each strap. Mine are not coming
off, which is nice. I’m always worried about that
when I test it, because like obviously I have to
test it for you guys, but I really don’t want them
to pop off, so very happy that didn’t. I like the
little mesh ruffle around here, and of course the
fabric is slightly iridescent. Always can get me
with the shiny things, very, very cute. And again
it’s very typical, but I do like it a lot, I like
the stereotypes when it comes to mermaid stuff.
The fish scale bottoms, these do just stretch to
go on. They are nice and stretchy, and obviously
like I’m not messing them up, so that’s fine.
And again, more of the mesh ruffle detailing to
kind of tie it all together. I like that
one, it’s really, really cute. She has these
seashell sunglasses, which would be terribly
impractical actually as sunglasses, but they do
look cute. I said in my last video about Sways
that I’m not really a like sunglasses person,
but these are cute. I like that. Her bag, again,
sparkly pink. Everything on this doll is just like
super shiny and sparkly, maybe that’s why I’m so
drawn to her. That and like, the mermaid thing of
course, but I just love shiny things. Oh my god,
look at this bag! Beautiful, I love the again
pearl detailing, all the painting on here looks
really nice differentiating the pearls from the
buckles from the straps. It is all just plastic,
like none of its fabric or anything. The strap can
bend and move, and there is an opening in there.
It doesn’t stretch, like this bag is not budging,
so I don’t think you could actually use this. I
guess it’s nice that they included that so that it
seems like more of a functional purse, but it also
definitely isn’t in practice, if that makes sense.
I don’t know, it looks really cute, which is what
matters to me. I don’t really put things in my
doll bags, but of course I love functionality,
so if you do like to slide like little play
cell phones or anything in your doll’s bags, I
don’t know that it’s gonna happen with this one.
Then she’s got this marvelous robe. I really wish
that you guys could feel this, it is so soft.
And it’s interesting, because usually
I don’t like the feel of silk? Like it
it’s just a feeling that’s uncomfortable
to me, I don’t personally like it. This is
kind of bordering on a silky feel, but it’s so
different at the same time. It feels incredible,
I’m literally just stroking this
robe, which is a little bit weird,
but it’s so soft and beautiful. Oh my god. Like
all of the layers in there, there is like a
secondary layer on the bottom to make it a little
more opaque, give it a little bit of volume.
It is so pretty! The bell sleeves, the shimmer to
it all, look at how this thing shines! Oh my god.
And then we’ve got the collar that does
the same ruffling, and of course a little
drawstring opening. I did keep it on the hanger
so that I could open this with you on camera…
Does go all the way around the back, so
it’s kind of like a little wrap around.
And then she just opens right
up, so there’s the third hanger.
But yeah, I–this is so pretty, I cannot get over
this. Which is funny, because seeing it online,
I honestly thought this was going to
be one of my least favorite pieces,
but this is stunning. So always a huge
surprise when I’m opening these dolls.
When it comes to Splash Beauty herself, her hair
is so cute! I love the styling, like the little
rope braid, and the ponytail up here. There’s
another ponytail here, which I’m not sure if it’s
just to give volume or what is happening there,
but I think it’s so cute. I love the blue color.
It is definitely showing up on camera is more of
a true blue, whereas in person it’s pretty teal,
so keep that in mind if you’re kind of just
going off of online images or online videos. As
you can see, mine’s definitely a little bit
frizzy. I don’t know what happened to her,
it’s not the best, but I do think that I can
fix that with a little bit of washing and
styling. Like that’s not something that
I think is necessarily a quality issue,
I think she just got a little tussled in the box,
and now I have to fix it, which is totally fine.
The hair is also supposed to color change, so this
white streak here and like through her braid and
everything is supposed to turn pink in UV light.
The directions that she came with said that you
could either use a fake UV light or sunlight, but
you have to like let it sit there for a second,
like it doesn’t happen immediately, it takes a
minute. So I’m gonna cut to a clip real quick of
me standing with her outside, we’ll see if it
works. Okay, so this first clip is her before
I had washed her hair. I wanted to do before
and after, to see if it made any difference.
It literally turned purple so fast in the sun that
I didn’t even have time to get my camera out and
start filming before it was already purple, so
it worked super quickly. It probably took maybe
like a minute once I took her inside for it to
turn back to white, but yeah, very, very fast.
And the second clip is from after I had washed
her hair. A little bit less sunny on this day,
I was trying to wait for a sunnier day but it just
wasn’t happening in my area. You can see in this
one, because I was more prepared for how fast it
would be, it is super, super quick and turning to
purple. So the color change even after you wash
uh still works really, really well on this doll.
She does have this little headpiece, mine is
a bit askew. Um, all the ones in my store were
kind of like that, where they were a little
bit lopsided. I think it’s just partially
her slightly uneven hairstyle, and then also the
fact that it is just held on with a rubber band,
like just one together. I don’t think that
that was the best design for the headpiece
kind of getting it to stay on properly. Like
obviously it’s on it’s fine, it’s just if you are
kind of a perfectionist–I can be, I
understand–and you want this centered,
you’re gonna have to like fuss with it a little
bit ,you’re gonna have to make that work.
The other thing about centering is this little
design on her forehead. Super cute, I do love it,
it’s like very mermaid but also very festival. I
just think it’s so fun. She’s got it also mixed
in with her painted on edges here. It is so cute,
but every single one at the store that I went to
was not perfectly centered, and it was driving
me up a wall. This is the closest I could get,
and also like I did want to have a pretty face
and everything, I had to account for that.
Like I didn’t want her to have perfect middle
section and like messed up eyeliner, but yeah,
this was the best I could get. That might be kind
of tricky for other people who care about that,
just so you’re aware, but her face is pretty
nice. The paint is not perfect on her eye,
like it’s–it’s not awful. Like from far
away, she looks fine. If you look up really,
really, really close, and you’re
super, super particular about that,
I feel like you’re just gonna have to look for
the best one, you know? Like that’s all you can
do. I would say definitely going in stores
is preferable, so you can try to pick your
favorite one, online is always a risk. But yeah,
I’m perfectly pleased with her, I think that this
is as good as I could get it. From far away, she
looks cute. Her face is beautifully designed too,
so like I can’t be too mad. Then she’s got kind
of rose gold tinted little pearl hoop earrings,
very cute. A regular pearl choker. Her top does
tie on the back with this ribbon, I don’t know why
mine only has one loop, I honestly think that’s
very funny. But yeah, very, very beautiful fabric
for the top and then the bottom here. I’m sure
you can see the color shift, all of the shimmer,
I love that. I love that from different
angles it looks a little bit pinky or purpley,
so cute. It’s just so beautiful, and there’s
not really any extra threads or anything
on the top. I think it’s kind of a simple
thing, at least the top–like we’re not
talking about the bottom. Top, kind of simple,
but I honestly love it, because I think that the
fabric itself speaks so much to the mermaid
theme. Like it looks so much like shimmery
fish scales, it’s so beautiful. Oh my god,
I’m losing my mind over this doll y’all,
she’s so cute. She has her little belt made of
again pearls, we’ve got more of that sort of
rose gold color on the connectors, I guess you
would call them, very, very cute. This skirt?
I’m losing my breath, y’all. I’m losing my breath
over how pretty this is. Again, same fabric,
absolutely gorgeous. On the inside here it’s
like a slightly differently sized sparkle,
slightly different color–obviously the vibrant
pink, but like the actual shimmer has a slightly
different color to it. This is gorgeous,
like the idea that it kind of looks like
a fin, like a fishtail, I just think that’s
so well executed. I think it’s so pretty.
I feel like it can be very hard to do a
mermaid doll that doesn’t have an actual tail.
I am kind of a mermaid purist, like I definitely
prefer having an actual tail option, but I think
this is honestly one of the best done fabric
like skirt tails that I’ve ever seen, this is so,
so pretty. I’m floored. Her little fishnets do
go up just above the knee here, pink to match
the inside of her tail, so I do like that. Also
that it kind of blends in, like you could kind of
from far away just pretend it’s just a
tail. I don’t know, I’m convincing myself.
But yeah guys, that is all for Splash
Beauty! Can you tell that I like her?
Just–just a little? Just a little bit? I don’t
really have any glaring issues with this. I would
have liked to have seen maybe an extra necklace,
or like a bracelet or something. I think that’s
maybe my only complaint um, but everything
that we did get I think is very quality,
and I also think honestly for the price point?
I thought she was more expensive than she was,
but she’s like $45 in the US, and
I feel like she comes with a lot.
I don’t know, because I’m thinking about like
the other videos that I’ve done recently, the
Rainbow High dolls. And the Junior High dolls are
$25, and they come with one outfit and no stand.
And like yeah, Sunny that I did a video on–she
had a lot of issues, it’s fine–but she also did
have a lot of details. I don’t know, I just feel
like comparatively this for 45 dollars you get
three outfits basically, two pairs of shoes, some
accessories, a stand. I feel like this is actually
a really good deal, and I haven’t been able to
say that in a long time about a doll. I feel like
every doll video I’ve done recently, I’ve talked
about the price, and the price is always kind of a
negative factor, because everything’s inflating.
Like I do understand it’s across the board,
doesn’t mean it’s not frustrating. But yeah,
like I actually feel like this is a decent
price point. Like the other doll that I
did from this line, Sways, she was $30,
and she only had kind of one outfit. So all of
this for 15 bucks more? I’m very pleased. I think
across the board very, very happy with this doll.
I’m so excited to have positive reviews you guys,
I love unboxing a doll and finding out that
she is just as beautiful and wonderful as I
was hoping for her to be, so this has
been very fun for me. I do hope you know,
you enjoyed watching the video, thank you
for going through and unboxing this with me,
had a blasty blast. But I hope you guys have
a lovely rest of your day, or your night,
or whatever it might be, and I’ll catch
you next week in the next one. Bye, guys!
