She Made Me Do It!

While I thoroughly enjoy blogging, reading blogs, and watching YouTube beauty channels, my wallet sure as hell doesn't! I can often be easily (too easily!) persuaded into buying things and after being bombarded with several different blog posts and/or videos of rave reviews of a particular product, more times than not, I usually end up purchasing it after succumbing to peer pressure and lack of self-control -__-

(Some of) The Evidence:


Bare Minerals Well-Rested Eye Brightener

Dior Amber Diamond Shimmerstar
(as seen on The Gloss Goss)

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation

Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Base

NARS Orgasm Illuminator
(as seen on Too Much Blush)

Revlon Cherries in the Snow Super Lustrous Lipstick
(as seen on Zoella)

MAC Ladyblush Blushcreme

MAC Snob Lipstick
(as seen on Annabella's blog)

Benefit Hoola
(as seen in Pixi2woo's videos)


Have you ever purchased something based on recommendations made by other beauty bloggers and YouTubers?

  1. Have I bought anything from a blogger/youtuber recommendation? When have I NOT is the question?! I want some MAC blushcremes too, but they are reformulating them and they are supposed to be better so I am going to wait. Nars sheer glow is hands down my favourite all-time foundation for sure, glad you got it :)

  2. Always. I always buy things based on recommendation. It's a dangerous habit xD
    I do investigate a lot before I purchase though.

  3. I do this all the time. Everyone is my enabler!

  4. I think it's the "investigation" that gets me into trouble! I tell myself I'm doing consumer research when I read blogs (I know ... hardy har, right?) and then find myself doing even MORE consumer research when I buy things without batting an eyelash.

    But what's the fun of self-control?

Then it was downhill from there for my wallet LOL I bought the NARS Sheer Glow (fortunately as discounted price at a makeup warehouse sale)!

  19. i'm dying for snob- how does it compare to VG Gaga?

    ReplyDelete
  20. happens to me all the time sadly, i have been working on getting control of it!

    ReplyDelete
  21. @the Honey B: They're actually pretty different. Snob is a bit darker and has mauvey/purpley undertones and is a Satin finish, so not glossy like Gaga :)

  22. I am the same! :p I get inspired by SO many bloggers! I'm even lemming some of the lipsticks you wore during your 7 day lippie challenge!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Of course!!! I wanna get NARS Sheer Glow too, but NARS isn't sold at my place, and I'm worried about ordering the wrong shade =[

  26. It's terrible, I think the majority of the tihings in my collection are influenced by other bloggers!!! I blame you all! Have you reviewed sheer glow? If you have I'm not quite sure how I missed it - I think you have quite a smiliar skin type to me and I keep thinking about buying it but not sure how I wouild fare with my oily skin - I'm going to go and look now :D xx

  35. Hi Tiffany!

    I have bought several products recommended by beauty bloggers and youtuube. And let me tell you my wallet doesn't agree with me sometimes hehe.
    But the last product I purchased is the Illamasqua Bronzing Duo, after I saw it on your posts, and I love it!,
    Thank you :)

  36. Ah,yes, don't I know it!!!

  37. @Betty: Aww, yay! I'm glad you like it too! It even looks really nice used in place of blush, I've found :)

    @Tina: Oopsies ;) It's so gorgeous, though. I think you'd love it!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Tiffany; Yes, it actually does look great as a blush, the bronze gives a very pretty bronzey-golden glow and the lighter shade gives a very natural glow, it's gorgeous :)

    ReplyDelete
