The Blogger Made Me Buy It Tag

1. Who are your most influential bloggers?  Who are the ones that you really rely on for reviews and swatches?
I trust The Sunday Girl blog as her reviews are always very detailed and honest. 

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?
No, I tend to read quite a few reviews before purchasing something, particularly if it costs a little more than what I would normally pay. I use Make Up Alley to find a lot of reviews as they are short and snappy, and very honest. 

3. What is your most favourite item that you have ever bought as a consequence of blogs?
Most definitely the Real Techniques Make Up Brushes. I have the starter kit, core collection and two blusher brushes, and they are some of the best brushes I have used. I use four of them without fail every day. They really are worth the hype!

4. What is your least favourite item that you have ever bought as a consequence of blogs?
To be honest, I can't quite think of anything right now that I disliked that I have bought as a result from reading blogs. The only item I can think of is the Seventeen Brow Kit which I dont detest, it is an OK product, but not what I expected from some of the reviews I read online. 

5. Name 5 products you have bought recently as a result of blogs.
Maybelline Baby Lips, Seventeen Brow Kit, MUA Eye Brow Pencil, MUA LUXE Power Brow, Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick. 

6. Have you ever given into blogger hype?  If so, which hype?
I would probably have to say yes; one that stands out in my head are Mac lipsticks. 

7. Have you ever avoided blogger hype?  If so, which hype?
Any lip gloss, lip stain or lip pen product. I always get so into the hype after reading rave reviews, but I know I just wont wear or use them enough, so I manage to talk myself out of buying them (so far, anyway!)

8. Is everything you buy based on blogger reviews or are there some items you buy without checking out a review?
Off - course there are products I buy without checking reviews before hand, I impulse buy occasionally with brand new products, but the majority of the time, I do search for reviews online before buying something new.
