The Blogger Made Me Buy It

I am such a sucker when it comes to hyped products, when us bloggers get wind of a product we just talk it up, aswell as the press, that much until it's embedded in our brains that we feel that we need that product in our lives. So I wanted to share with you today the products that I bought because my favourite bloggers were either speaking so highly of it or just purely because I felt I needed it.

So firstly, and I can thank Lily Pebbles for majority of these product purchases, are my Burberry duo. The Burberry Fresh Glow Foundation and the Burberry Light Glow Natural Blush in shade Earthy Blush. The foundation gives a super dewy finish with a light to medium coverage, honestly I love this stuff. I'm so glad I bought it, it looks so natural on the skin and is really breathable so doesn't feel cakey or heavy at all on the skin. It blends in seamlessly and actually works into the skin rather than just sitting on top like some foundations do. The blush is another firm favourite. I use this as a blush and as a contour powder, because of the shade it is perfect for both. 

Next is the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel. Every single blogger that I followed were singing the praises of this cleanser but I just couldn't get past the word gel as typically anything gel based does not sit well with my skin. But nevertheless I listened to the trusted words of my favourite bloggers and made a purchase and quite frankly have never looked back since. I have been using this cleanser morning and night and just love it. In no way does it resemble a gel, it's more a balm like texture when dispensed that turns into a rich oil once applied to the skin.

Another product is the By Terry Ombre Blackstar Shadow Pen in shade Bronze Moon. The amount of bloggers recommending this product was just far too many for it to not be a good product. So I plodded off to my nearest Space NK and of course made another purchase. I am a massive fan of any cream based eye shadows, I just feel the colour payoff is so much better than powders and I find them a lot easier to work with. These shadow sticks are just incredible. I apply this all over the lid and it gives the effect of 5 different powders blended together. At the same time I also picked up the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in shade Cruella. These pencils get so much publicity and there's good reason for it, these pencils are just dreamy. They glide on like a dream and stay put all day and night through eating, drinking, chatting, kissing, you name it. Obviously they are matte so are slightly drying but nothing too drastic and to combat this I just apply a thin layer of lip balm before applying. 

Lastly it's the Clinique Turnaround skincare collection, Gemma from This London Life had raved about this range and I love her blog so of course I took myself straight off to Boots to pick up my very own serum and oil, I am also contemplating buying the day and night creams from this range aswell. This stuff is just dreamy. Both products sink in so well into the skin and when used together my skin feels so incredibly soft and plumped afterwards. These are definitely my current most loved skincare items. 

So they're the products that I completely fell for thanks to my favourite bloggers but I am so glad I did as I adore every single item.

What products have you bought based purely on another bloggers recommendation?

  5. I loooove Bronze Moon :) such a good buy, though I do think there are amazing cheaper alternatives. I also got the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel and really liked it though I can't decide whether I can justify the re-purchase xx
