the blogger made me buy it

My friend Abi from Kemples tagged me in her 'The Blogger Made Me Buy It' post so I thought I would join in...

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

I find myself regularly checking both of Lily's blogs (llymlrs & etcllymlrs), her style is one of my favourites but I also love her beauty blog, I find it really easy to read. A few other favourite bloggers are Fleur De Force, Milkteef, Vivianna Does Makeup, Ghostparties & . They are all blogs that I will go to if I'm looking for a review of a particular product as I know they will have probably featured it! 

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?

I tend to look through quite a few blogs each day & if I see the same product appearing more than a few times I am intrigued to find out more which leads me to my nearest Boots/Beauty department to test them out for myself.

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

This is such a tough question because I have so many items I love thanks to blogger influence. Probably my most favourite item is my MAC 217 blending brush or my Real Techniques brushes. Applying my makeup with these brushes each day makes me so happy, I'm very easily pleased ha!

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

MAC 217 Blending Brush, Marc Jacobs Honey Perfume, Barry M Gelly Nail Polish (you can win a shade of your choice in my giveaway!), Soap & Glory Breakfast Scrub & Urban Decay Naked Palette.

Is everything you buy based on blogger reviews or are there some items you buy without checking a review?

I hardly ever buy products unless I've seen them on a blog or in a YouTube video to be honest! I'm so easily influenced I almost always give into the blogger hype!
