Quick Beauty Q's With Michele Wang

Peruse beauty influencer Michele Wang’s YouTube channel and you’ll discover a trove of videos that dive deep into the product catalogs of nearly every luxury beauty brand on the planet. We were thrilled to learn that Chantecaille has also earned some screen time with the beauty obsessive, who can turn viewers onto products that instantly become bestsellers—she’s that good. 

We sent Wang our quick-hit rapid fire beauty q’s—see how she weighed in below.
