I think most of us are guilty of following our favourite bloggers and Youtubers, and buying products simply on their recommendation - well, i know i am! There has been many occasions when i've seen many bloggers reviewing a new product, and i feel as though i have to rush out and buy it like my life depends on it. Whether it's skincare or make up, doesn't matter what it may be - if it's something new, and i see lots of my favourite bloggers and Youtubers talking about it then more often than not it'll eventually worm its way into my collection.

Starting at the back, the Vaseline Spray & Go Body Moisturiser is something i saw featured on blogs before it was even released and for me, moisturising is not my favourite thing. So anything that makes it easier is right up my street! The continuous spraying is perfect for easy application, and it's so light yet so moisturising that it sinks into the skin easily without leaving any residue. I've already reviewed this product on the blog, which can go and read here.

The Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer was something that i saw lots of the American bloggers talk about even before it was available here, and it's actually a fairly new addition to my everyday make up routine. When it first came on the scene i wanted to give it a go but it wasn't available here, so i couldn't get my hands on it. I then completely forgot about it until i stumbled across it in Boots one day while browsing, and i was after a new under eye concealer. I picked it up months ago but needed to finish my current concealer, so have only been using it for about a month or two and i'm really glad it's been added to my routine. It's got great coverage, and is easy to apply. The formula is creamy and when blending doesn't drag my under eye skin, and works great with my favourite Make Up Forever Full Cover Concealer over the top (which is another product a blogger made me buy but i forgot to include!)

I think every blogger and their cat has at some point talked about Revlon lip products. They seem to be a favourite amongst the beauty bloggers, whether it's the new Lacquer and Matte balms or the cult favourite Lip Butters. I have jumped on all three band wagons because, honestly, they're such good quality products for the drugstore price. I've already posted my thoughts on my first lacquer balm here and you can also find a post on my opinions on Lacquer vs Matte. My love for the Lip Butters can be found all over the place on my blog but you can read my Lipstick Tag and Christmas Kisses posts for my opinions on some of my favourites.

The Maybelline Colour Tattoos are something everyone has heard of, thanks to blogs, and i own four of them myself but they actually don't get all that much love from me. Since buying them, i've bought some many new eye products that they're just a little redundant. The bronze shade, pictured above, is probably my least loved as it's my oldest and has become a little dry but is also a little dark for me. I do own some of the beautiful champagne and pearly colours that are great for all over lid colours and for the inner corner, but i think over time i've just come to love powder eyeshadows more - especially the buttery smooth formula of MAC and Urban Decay - but you can read about when  i picked up my newest three shades from the States last Summer.

Everyone talks about the Naked Palette and i'm sure you're sick of hearing about it, so i won't go on but i think this is probably my favourite product that i'm glad i picked up after hearing about it on blogs. Without, i probably would have never known about it or splurged the price tag. I only more recently really got into using my palette, and you read about my favourite combinations here.

This L'Oreal Ever Riche Hair Mask was actually a real pain to track down, but i'm so glad that in the end i found it because it's the best conditioning product i've ever used. Is saw the lovely Fleur De Force talking about this on her Youtube channel as she dyes her hair blonde too and as many of you know i'm sure, dyeing your hair blonde - and many other colours for that matter - can damage the your hair, at the ends especially. This product is amazing, and can be left on for 5, 15, 30 minutes or even overnight and it smooths your hair beautifully. I declared my love for this, actually, in my Favourite Beauty Products of 2013 post.

The YSL Rouge Volupte Shine lipsticks are one of the more expensive products that bloggers have made me buy. When i was in America, i took advantage of the lower price and bought myself a couple of these because they are probably one of my favourite lip products, and the packaging is beautiful. You can read about these all over the internet, and they're pretty self explanatory but you can read about the two i picked up last Summer in my American Beauty series.

Clinique is a brand that you see all over beauty blogs, and when the Chubby Stick Shadow Tints released they were everywhere. It wasn't until early this year that i actually invested in one of these though because i wasn't sure that i really needed it. Originally, i saw Essie Button talking about these and particularly Lavish Lilac. That's a colour i never thought would be up my alley, but actually it's beautiful. Lavish Lilac is a purple toned grey with plenty of shimmer, and it's lovely for an easy all over the lid look for everyday or for the evening. I actually posted about this just a little while ago, and i show you how it looks on me too.

A few years ago, MAC was the brand that all bloggers talked about. Now, it's still a well loved brand but a lot more brands have produced products to rival MAC but i've always loved MAC products, especially they're lipsticks and they're eyeshadows so at the end of last year i decided to treat myself to an eyeshadow quad. I picked three shades that i've heard all about and one that i liked the look of - i should of gone with four that i'd heard lots about because Honesty is actually a little chalky, but you can read all about this quad and my love for it in a post dedicated to it, as well as how i wear them in a post about playing with the shadows.

So, that's what the bloggers made me buy - what did they make you buy?
