I think I've done relatively well not being sucked too much into the blogging fever when it comes to buying products I've seen on blogs or on YouTube hauls and reviews.. but I can't say it's never happened! Here's a little tag to spill my secrets.

1. Who are your most influential bloggers? Who are the ones that you really rely on for reviews and swatches? 
I love reading Miss Budget Beauty for reviews, shes reliable and seems to like the same types of products as me so I always know if she loves it, I probably will too!

 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? 
I usually buy a product because it's caught my eye and I will look around for reviews to see if it's worth my money, so if the review is from one of my favourite and most trusted bloggers then it's full steam ahead!

 3. What is your most favourite item that you have ever bought as a consequence of blogs?
Defiantly my holographic clutch bag after seeing VintageOrTacky talk about it, that was a result of me being up a 2am to catch the deal moments after she posted it! If fact I rushed onto the ALDO website probably 2 minutes after seeing it. Which I have never done before but it had to be mine! I got the clutch for £7.49 (from £30!) Click here to see my post about this!

4. What is your least favourite item that you have ever bought as a consequence of blogs? 
I think probably the MAC Paint Pot I had in bare study (sadly one of the items in my stolen suitcase) Even though i'm sad it was stolen I don't think I would repurchase, or not in that shade anyway, for some reason it just went really cakey even if I used a tiny amount and I could never get it to look as nice as all the reviews I'd seen. It was a gorgeous colour though!

 5. Name 5 products that you have bought recently as a result of blogs. 
-Real Techniques Brushes (heavenly)
-Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette (love it)
-W7 In The Buff Nude Palette (ahem...giveaway soon!)
-Maybelline Baby Lips (all of them!)
-Brogue shoes from NewLook (after seeing Gh0stParties post them in insta)

 6. Have you ever given into blogger hype? If so, which hype? 
As much as I want to say no... yes. Probably on all the Naked Palettes! After seeing the first one waved around SO MUCH I got it for my 19th Birthday and have loved it ever since, wasn't too keen on the 2nd one, but the third has my 21st B'day written all over it! (Mum if you're reading this, HINT!)

 7. Have you ever avoided blogger hype? If so, which hype? 
Yes, I think probably.. everything else! I always think, okay it's clearly a great product.. but do I even want it? Is it worth the £££, and how much would I realistically use it? If the answer to those three is YES, YES, and A LOT.. then I will find a way to snag it for myself.

 8. Is everything you buy based on blogger reviews or are there some items you buy without checking out a review?
Sometimes I will just be browsing a store and if something catches my eye I will buy it, I don't think oh I must look for reviews on this lipstick first before I buy it, I think, here's a review opportuity, because I'm a blogger too! The review has to start somewhere.

If you have a blog, I would love to read your version of 'The Blogger Made Me Do It TAG' so post your own and link me up in the comments!!
