The Blogger Made Me Buy It

It's been quite a while since I've posted a tag on the blog but when I saw this one I knew I had to do it! I got the tag from the lovely Cally over at Clothes Circus so go check her blog out!

Who are your most influential bloggers? Who are the ones that you rely on for reviews and swatches?
The two bloggers that I rely one the most are vloggers rather than bloggers but they both speak so truthfully! The first is Ingrid and the second is Casey Holmes. I swear by their opinions and they've both made my US makeup wishlist miles long!

Do you buy a product solely as a result of one review from a favourite blog, or do you look for more reviews from others?
If I'm looking at reviews before purchasing a product I will always look at multiple reviews as everyone skins is different and people can react differently to products. I think it's important to get views from various bloggers rather than just relying on one!

What is your favourite item that you have ever bought as a consequence of blogs?
Probably the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation. I absolutely adore this foundation. It has great coverage, doesn't cling to dry patches and gives a lovely healthy glow to the skin. I have repurchased the foundation about 3 times now and possibly would never have tried it if it wasn't for the blogger hype surrounding it!

What is your least favourite item that you ever bought as a consequence of blogs?
Most definitely the Bioderma Micellar water. It was such a hyped up product and bloggers were singing it's praises but when I tried it I just couldn't understand why. It didn't remove mascara well and I would use about 5 cotton pads to remove my face makeup. It never made me feel like my makeup was fully gone. I just couldn't understand why people liked it so much!

Name 5 products you have bought recently as a result of blogs?
Nars Laguna Bronzer
Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation
Bourjois Happy Light Concealer
Maybelline Babylips (don't buy, they're awful!)
Origins Clear Improvement Mask

Have you ever given into a blogger hype? If so, which hype?
Last year I bought my first MAC lipstick and now have four! They're really hyped up in the blogging world and I can see why. Amazing formulas and a huge range of colours so there is a shade for everyone. My favourite formulas from them have got to be amplified and matte. MAC lipsticks were the first high end makeup product I'd ever bought and since they my makeup collection has grown and grown. Last night I also gave in to the hype and bought the Nars Laguna Bronzer (with some cheeky ASOS student discount). I've been trying to decide for month whether or not to get it and now I can't wait for it to arrive, I know I'll love it!

Have you ever avoided a blogger hype? If so, which hype?
I've never really been interested in trying the Collection concealer that is widely hyped in the blogging world. I've swatched it and never really found a shade that matches me well. Another product I never really found interested is the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation. This is again because of the small choice in shades plus a couple of bad reviews. I love trying new products but sometimes the hype puts me off a little.

Is everything you buy based on blogger reviews or are there some items you buy without checking out a review?
I'm a huge impulse buyer so if I see something in the shop and think I'll like it, I'll buy it (unless it's an expensive product). For some things such as foundations or skincare I will read reviews though as these can be tricky items to get right. It's nice to discover products yourself. I really love sharing great products I've discovered with other people!

I tag you all to do this post and if you do please leave links below and they me of any products you'd recommend!
