The Blogger/Youtuber Made Me Buy It

There are always going to be some products that I just cannot resist, and sadly, the blogging community does not make my spending habits any easier. I blame all of you. That's right, every single one of you. So of course, I have to blog about it ;) So here we go, a rundown on some of the products the bloggers made me buy....

One purchase which I have no regrets at all for, is my Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Eyeshadow Palette, Cliona Hill, I'm looking at you. Cliona mentioned this palette all over her blog including her Cult Beauty Favourites post, but I think it was the fair few mentions over the Autumn and Christmas period that definitely pulled me in. When I have to think about luxury, I think about Charlotte Tilbury, because the product and packaging to me is just all round beautiful. I wore this palette constantly during the Autumn and Winter months and it's a palette I really do think is worth the blogger making me buy it! 

Another Charlotte Tilbury product that I had to get my hands on was the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Pillow Talk lipstick. Now I think a few bloggers are to blame on this purchase, but Lily from Pint Sized Beauty's beautiful photography definitely pushed me over the edge on this one. I can't believe how much of this lipstick I have already used, it's insane. I actually need to reign it in and wear my others because otherwise I'll be needing to repurchasing one every couple of months. This is that all time holy grail perfect pink/nude lipstick which had gotten everyone swooning - for a good reason! 

Milani Baked Blush 'Luminoso' is a blusher I think I need to stop talking about, because I'm sure everyone has gotten bored of it by now. I picked this up due to KathleenLights raving on and on about this being one of her all time favourite drugstore blushers and I have to agree, it's probably one of mine too. I'm so surprised I haven't hit pan, but I don't think this blush has really hit the blogging world over in the UK mainly because Milani has only just become available easily over here. 

Emmy from Emmy's Beauty Cave was the one who really pushed me into making my first ever Colourpop order and my goodness, does that brand not disappoint. Her reviews and swatches on her blog pretty much sold me and I managed to pick up the Supershock Eyeshadow 'Weenie' and the Colourpop Lippie Stix 'Lumiere' which I knew would look fab as I had seen full reviews from Emmy. 

Let me know what products bloggers and youtubers made you purchase in the comment below! 


  1. I bought a lot of these products based on blogger recommendation, too! Lumiere is a little brighter than I expected but I still love it. Pillow Talk is one of my favorite lipsticks now!

  2. I'm guilty being an enabler but also being inspired by a lot of these blogger recommendations! My most recent blogger inspired purchase would be the new Sephora Favourites set!

  3. I'm so glad you like Dolce Vita! It was basically the only eyeshadow I wore during the Autumn! Brown Thomas just got Pillow Talk so I'm tempted to get it, it looks amazing! xx

  6. Ahh Cliona has inspired so many of my purchases! I'm always inspired by what other bloggers buy, especially when it comes to Charlotte Tilbury!

  7. I definitely agree with this! I feel like Milani and CT are such blogger favourites, you can't help but be swooped up by the hype! x

  9. I also wanted to pick up the Milani blush in Luminoso thanks to Kathleen. Unfortunately it has been sold out for a long time here now, so I need to wait little bit longer.
