The Blogger Made Me Buy It Tag

I love a good tag post, who doesn't? So when I saw that the lovely Danniella from Famous In Japan had created her own I knew I had to do it :)! It's such a fun tag to do as all us beauty bloggers are such enablers.

1. Who are your most influential bloggers? Who are the ones that you really rely on for reviews and swatches?
Anna & Lily Pebbles definitely, especially when it comes to skincare. As well as a new favourite of mine Caroline Hirons. Makeup wise I also find myself on Adrienne from The Sunday Girls' blog, especially for new releases. I also find the #bbloggers community hugely influential, especially during chats!

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?
I think it varies really, if it's something expensive I'll definitely do my research on multiple blogs. If i'm out shopping and I see something in Boots or Superdrug that looks nice i'll probably buy it but if i'm planning on going shopping i'll research lots.

3. What is your most favourite item that you have ever bought as a consequence of blogs?
Definitely my Naked 3 palette although I technically didn't buy it, it was a gift. I'd say it was probably the first big release since I started beauty blogging and I fell hook line and sinker for it. I am in love with it though, so it was definitely worth it.

4. What is your least favourite item that you have ever bought as a consequence of blogs?
Probably the La Roche Posay Effaclar K. I'd seen wonderful reviews on this but unfortunately it did nothing for my skin. That'll teach me though, skin care is so individual. 

5. Name 5 products you have bought recently as a result of blogs. 
Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette, Ren 3 Clay Clarifying Cleanser, Ren Exfoliant Toner, Maybelline Baby Skin and Illamasqua Liquid Light Foundation.

6. Have you ever given into blogger hype? If so, which hype?
I'm forever giving in to the hype. Most recently the Maybelline Baby Skin Primer and the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. I also jumped on the Baby Lips band wagon but I totally regret that.

7. Have you ever avoided blogger hype? If so, which hype? 
Er, I actually don't think I have. I usually wait for the hype (and price) to calm down first though as I usually can't afford it!

8. Is everything you buy based on blogger reviews or are there some items you buy without checking out a review?
A mixture of both really, I definitely read blogs and reviews for expensive items but nothing beats going in to Boots and going crazy :)

I tag anyone who wants to do this tag! Just like your posts in the comments and i'll check them out. xo


  1. Haha ohhhh the Urban Decay Naked palettes... they're everywhere!! Haha I totally agree with you about waiting till the price goes down too, some of the products people write about are SUPER expensive - it's kinda nice in a way that those who can afford it go out and buy them, then we can read their reviews and take our time deciding (...while the price goes down) ;)

    1. Haha yes! When I have the money I like to splash out but I do like the feeling of really wanting something. Then you know if you really want/need it xx
