Tag: The Blogger Made Me Buy It!


I was tagged by the lovely Katie from Sugar Fixx Beauty to do the Blogger Made Me Buy it Tag! It was originally made by Danniella from Famous in Japan so make sure to check out their answers to the questions!

1. Who are your most influential bloggers? Who are the ones that you really rely on for reviews and swatches?

I would definitely say Vivianna from Vivianna Does Makeup, I always end up purchasing products she recommends! I rely on both Temptalia and Cafe Makeup for product swatches and reviews.

2. Do you buy a product solely as a result from one review from your favourite bloggers, or do you look for more reviews from others?

If I'm looking to buy something, I generally google it and find as many reviews as I can from different bloggers, this is also such a great way to find new blogs! If it's a foundation, I also have a look on youtube at foundation routines, to see the product in action! 

3. What is your most favourite item that you have ever bought as a consequence of blogs?

Probably the Naked Palette and the Naked 3 Palette! I love them so much, they are perfect if you generally wear more neutral eye looks. Blogs definitely encouraged me to buy these, especially the Naked 3 Palette, there were so many blog posts about it, I couldn't resist!

4. What is your least favourite item that you have ever bought as a consequence of blogs?

I rarely buy products that I end up disliking, I tend to only not get along with a product if it breaks me out or doesn't work on my skin type. My least favourite product would be the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish and it completely messed up my skin. I then decided to give it another go and it screwed it up again, it's never been the same since! *sadface* It's such a shame as so many people I know use it religiously and adore it!

5. Name 5 products you have bought recently as a result of blog.

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette, Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, Pixi Glow Tonic, Nars Guy Bourdin One Night Stand Palette, Anastasia Brow Wiz! 

6. Have you ever given in to blogger hype? If so, which hype?

I would have to say the Nars Guy Bourdin One Night Stand Palette, I'm not even into blushers that much but after reading reviews I just had to buy it, I'm glad I did, it's beautiful! I think the crazy amount of blog posts on this palette made me want it more and the fact that it was limited edition! 

7. Have you ever avoided blogger hype? If so, which hype?

I wasn't fussed about the Rimmel Apocalips, I have looked at them a few times in Boots but the shades just don't appeal to me for some reason! 

8. Is everything you buy based on blogger reviews or are there some items you buy without checking out a review?

Most things I buy, I look up reviews for but sometimes if I'm in Boots or Superdrug and I see something that looks interesting, I'll pick it up!

  1. Interesting post. I also didn't get into Rimmel Apocalips for some reason. I think no shade suited me well enough, even though it seems to have a good formula and pigment.

  4. I wish I could get my hands on the NARS blush palette. It's so gorgeous but I can't find it anywhere. It doesn't help that it gets so hyped up.
