Bloggers Made Me Buy It


Since blogging, I've accumulated quite a substantial amount of makeup. Well, its definitely not the biggest collection ever but you get what I mean haha. A lot of the makeup I've bought over the few years are blogger influenced, so here are a few bits that I bought purely because bloggers typed about them.

First up we have the Sleek Solstice Highlighter Palette. This is literally everything. With three powders and one cream, this little palette is perfect. I'm so glad I finally caved and bought this, but I don't regret it one bit. For a drugstore highlight palette, its extremely pigmented and I'd say if you were to buy one thing from Boots this month, scrap that, this year, it should be this. Onto something a little more high end now, the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette. I think I ended up buying this about a week after it was released because of the HUGE blogger hype over it. I previously had the Naked 3 palette which I loved, and didn't have anything smoky, so this seemed perfect. I used it a fair bit in the first month or so of having it, but unfortunately its been pushed to the back of the pile. I don't tend to do a smoky eye that often, but I do think this might need to be cracked out again for the festive season. 

The Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray. Technically I wanted the UD All Nighter setting spray but it was out of stock basically everywhere (thanks bloggers haha). So I opted for the de-slick version instead. I decided to buy the travel size option first incase I didn't like it, but I'm pleased to say I really do. Although I don't use it on a daily basis, its so good for when you've done a full face of makeup for a night out. I always find looking for a foundation is such a chore, theres so many out there. I wanted a cheap(ish) one, and remembered so many bloggers rave about the L'Oreal True Match Foundation. I really love this foundation, it gives such a great coverage and the shade is perfect for my pale complexion. The only bad thing I have to say about this, is that it clings to dry patches quite badly. I've found this with most L'Oreal foundations I've tried, but apart from that I love it.

Onto some lip bits now. The NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. How could I not mention these?! Every blogger and their dog has tried these I swear. I'm so glad I tried these out because I'm addicted and have quite a few in my collection. They have beautiful shades, they're pigmented and are SO flipping comfortable on the lips, like nothing I've ever tried before. Everything about these are perfect, so I suggest trying them out if you haven't already! Finally, the Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Eastend Snob. This lip product was all the range about a year ago now, it was the perfect nude pink shade. I really loved this lip liner, but soon got board and threw it to the back of the pile. As much as its a pretty colour, the stick always seems to snap which is really annoying because you end up wasting so much product! 

What products have you been influenced to buy through bloggers?

  3. Oh my god I didn't know urban decay made setting spray and it was so hyped (i mean obviously they make a setting spray bc duh!). What does the de-slick version do or is supposed to do as opposed to the All Nighter version? I had one NYX Lip Cream and I really liked it. It was really nice and it was super comfortable! If only liquid lipsticks could feel like those!

    1. The de-slick version helps to control oil and all that jazz instead, but I reckon the all nighter is just as good if not better - I wish all liquid lipsticks felt like the soft matte lip creams yes haha!

  10. I swatched that Sleek palette yesterday, it's just stunning! I have that lip liner too, gorgeous colour but like you say, so bloody annoying when it snaps! I definitely would be a richer girl if I didn't read blogs but my make up would also be a lot worse so swings and roundabouts haha x

  13. Haha of course the Sleek highlighting palette is involved! I could tell that straight off before reading hehe. It's everywhere! At first I really wasn't keen on their palettes but thats because I have the Precious Metals which is 3 creams and one powder. The creams really don't sit nice on my face so I was put off - but now i know this has more powder than cream, I WANT IN! (found you through bloglovin!) xo

  14. Ooh great tips - these all look so great! I love the L'oreal foundation - they give such good coverage and feel so light! I was looking into that UD setting spray too, now I'm convinced! I've also read a lot (thanks bloggers haha) about those NYX lip creams and they seem really good and so affordable!!

  20. Oh god bloggers are responsible for about 90% of my makeup collection I think! I still haven't gotten my hands on the Sleek highlighting palette even though I've been drooling over it for months but it looks so gorge! x

  22. I have definitely been influenced by bloggers with NYX lip creams but they're so good luckily! It would be interesting to how many of my beauty items were bought because of bloggers.

  23. Every NAKED palette! I loved the original but like you, I don't use the Smoky palette as much. I've also bought a lot of NYX lip creams but I think they live up to the hype and are such a great price!

  24. I brought the smoky palette thinking that I will love it but up until recently, I haven't been doing anything with it apart from swatches. I think it's easier now cause it's the festive season and glitter is a must! :) xx

  25. Bloggers can be very dangerous and make you want to buy everything! Urban Decay Naked palettes and perfumes are the main things bloggers have influenced me to buy!

  26. I totally bought the NYX Soft Matte lip creams because bloggers recommended them! I love them though ♥
