The Blogger Made Me Buy It | TAG

This tag has been floating around the blogosphere for a little while now so when Bex tagged me to do it I thought it was about time I did this tag! It was created by Danniella whose blog is Famous in Japan, I think it's a great tag so I tag everyone to do it!


1. Who are your most influential bloggers? Who are the ones that you really rely on for reviews and swatches?
The blog that I turn to the most for reviews and swatches is Adrienne's blog, The Sunday Girl. I've come away from reading her blog with a list as long as my arm of products that I've wanted to try in the past! 

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?
Very rarely do I buy a product after just hearing one good review, I always tend to look for more reviews to get more of a general idea about the product. Sometimes I will buy the odd product after hearing a great review of it from another blogger though.

3. What is your most favourite item that you have ever bought as a consequence of blogs?
This is definitely a toss up between my Revlon Balm Stains that I adore and my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. Both are products that I couldn't be without and I use them on a weekly if not daily basis.

4. What is your least favourite item that you have ever bought as a consequence of blogs?
Most definitely the Rimmel Apocalips! I really hated them! They smelt disgusting, they were difficult to wear and they just really didn't appeal to me overall.

5. Name 5 products that you have bought recently as a result of blogs.
I haven't actually bought any makeup myself recently but here are a few products that I have bought as a result of blogs: MAC Lipsticks, Maybelline Colour Tattoos, Essie Nail Polishes, Real Techniques Brushes and Revlon Lip Butters.

6. Have you ever given into blogger hype? If so, which hype?
Yes, all the time! Other than the products mentioned above I've bought the Maybelline Baby Lips, the Rimmel ScandalEyes Liners and Maybelline Mascaras because of the hype surrounding them!

7. Have you ever avoided blogger hype? If so, which hype?
I've avoided quite a few hypes including Origins products which I love the look of but they are quite pricey!

8. Is everything you buy based on blogger reviews or are there some items you buy without checking out a review?
I'd say most of what I buy is based on blogger reviews but I do make impulse purchases every now and then!

Like I said above I tag everyone! 

Thanks for reading,
