TAG: The Blogger Made Me Buy It

Hey lovelies!

When the fabulous Katie from Sugarfixx Beauty tagged me to complete this new tag created by Daniella of Famous In Japan I was really excited! It's a great tag for me to do as I am constantly seeing reviews and craving new products recommended to me by fellow bloggers!

You can find Katie's answers here!

1. Who are your most influential bloggers? Who are the ones that you really rely on for reviews and swatches?

Well, obviously, a big one for myself is Tanya Burr! I rely on her reviews and tutorials for a lot of my make up looks and purchases and she goes for products from a broad range of brands, from high end, to high street - which I love! And I'm not going to lie, swatches don't interest me in the slightest. Things look different on peoples skin tones and I try them myself on the back of my hand before I buy them anyway! Perhaps that is why none of my reviews ever have swatches in them...

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?

Once I see a review from one of my fave bloggers and I'm enticed by the product, I then go on to find more reviews and ask the opinion of followers/bbloggers on twitter.

3. What is your most favourite item that you have ever bought as a consequence of blogs?

Hmm, probably the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. Before becoming a blogger, I would never have thought to go to Collection for my most-used concealer but there's no looking back! I'm in love with it.

4. What is your least favourite item that you have ever bought as a consequence of blogs?

I don't know! Maybe Babylips, still love them for a quick colour/balm top up, but they aren't that great really.

5. Name 5 products you have bought recently as a result of blogs.

Decleor products, just feel like I've been missing out there! Urban Decay Naked 3, MAC MSF in Soft and Gentle, Mac Diva and Benefit's POREfessional.

6. Have you ever given into blogger hype? If so, which hype?

Yes! POREfessional, if that counts. I got a sample in a set my parents got me for Christmas and then listened to my fellow bloggers in buying the full size version!

7. Have you ever avoided blogger hype? If so, which hype?

I can't think of any in particular, maybe Nars Sheer Glow, but that's just because it's so expensive.

8. Is everything you buy based on blogger reviews or are there some items you buy without checking out a review?
Not at all, the majority of the time I will nip into Superdrug and pick up something just because I like the look of it. It is only after I've formed an opinion of it myself do I check out what other people think to it! Some products look different against different skin tones and stuff, so I decide for myself what I'm going to buy a lot of the time.

I tag the following people to complete this fab tag:

Beth - bethanyworrall

Lydia - Lovely Jubbly

Stacey - Expat Makeup Addict

Lucy - lucyearnshaw

Ambi - Bombay Rose

I hope you enjoyed this post, feel free to partake yourself!

Lots of love, Steph xxxx
