TAG: The blogger made be buy it

Image credited to Fee - thank you!

I saw this post over on Fee's blog and really enjoyed reading it so thought I'd join in on the tag and do my own little version. 

1) Who are your most influential bloggers?  Who are the ones that you really rely on for reviews and swatches?
I would have to say the ones I look to most these days are Alix from ICovetthee and Mikhila from Miss 
Budget Beauty. There are LOTS of blogs that I read and YT videos that I religiously watch, but it’s got to be these 2 that I really rely on at the moment and get that ‘Yes’ moment when I see a new post/video pop up in my subscription box! I don’t tend to take much notice of swatches because I honestly think these look different on every person but for reviews, I pay attention! 

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?
Yes and no - I probably have done this before but it’s not very often! I don’t tend to step out of my comfort zone too much so I do tend to look around first if I’m buying something new but I think I was definitely guilty of this when the first Naked palette was released. 

3) What is your most favourite item that you have ever bought as a consequence of blogs?
I would have to agree with Fee here and say the Real Techniques brushes. I wouldn’t say I had too many brushes before buying these but I definitely didn’t NEED them in my collection but you know how it goes….you see it enough times and well it’s just going to happen and boy am I glad it did! I love these brushes and couldn’t recommend them more-everyone I talk to and there’s even a small mention of brushes I throw these down their throat! I would have to also give an honourable mention to the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors - oh my, these are pretty damn nice! 

4) What is your least favourite item that you have ever bought as a consequence of blogs?
Lip crayons/Chubby sticks/… whatever you want to call them (they’re all over the bloody place)! Yup, I caved and tried a few out but they’re just not for me. Maybe if my lips were better but I just don’t get on with anything other than gloss really.

5) Name 5 products you have bought recently as a result of blogs
1) Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors
2) NEOM Bath Oils
3) This Works deep sleep pillow spray
4) Paul & Joe Make-up bag
5) Sally Hansen Insta-dri anti-chip top coat

6) Have you ever given into blogger hype?  If so, which hype?
The very first naked palette - I really didn’t get on with it. I literally went out and got it as soon as I could (pretty much like most people I’m sure), but I was just so disappointed with it for what it cost. I’d bought the MUA Heaven & Earth palette not long before and was quite happy using that so the Naked palette was just really unnecessary in my opinion. 

7) Have you ever avoided blogger hype?  If so, which hype?
I'm currently trying to avoid the current NARS hype - all the new palettes etc that have been released look so beautiful but I really don't NEED them at all and don't need to spend the money either...but they look so pretty!

8) Is everything you buy based on blogger reviews or are there some items you buy without checking out a review?
Most things these days are based on reviews mainly because it’s where I first hear about new products. I check my bloglovin app every single day so there’s not much out there that gets release without me having seen it before on someone's blog.

I tag anyone that would like to write their own 'The blogger made me buy it' (and if you do, please leave your link below as I really enjoyed reading Fee's)!
