It's no secret that I love make up and buying anything and everything and since I've been reading blogs I've noticed I've given in to the hype of products rather a lot. There are many bloggers that have an influence on the clothes I go out and buy or the home ware and it's no exception when it comes to make up and beauty. I have given in to saving the pennies on so many occasions that I thought I'd share with you some of the products I've caved in on and splashed the cash.

Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick in shade 107
If you haven't bought this lipstick for the Autumn/Winter season then who are you? This is the perfect berry shade and looks so good on any skin tone. It was Zoella who made me purchase this. I am not usually one for wearing red lipstick because I have small lips and I feel like it just looks shit to be honest but I couldn't resist with this one and I don't regret my decision one bit. It makes me feel SO autumnal.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation
Before making this purchase the only high end foundations I'd bought were MAC foundations. I'm very much a drugstore gal and love a good bargain. Let's face it, I'm your Primark Queen and Superdrug's number one fan and would much prefer to buy lots of low end priced items than one lipstick for £40 or a handbag for over £1000 (although if anyone wants to buy me Charlotte Tilbury's whole range or a Chanel Handbag then certainly, go ahead). I had hear lots of YouTubers and Bloggers raving about the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation and there had been mixed reviews but it was Corrie from Dizzy Brunette who made me cave. I walked into my local Boots and asked the lady on the counter for a sample to try it out and I fell in love. I don't wear it every day but on special occasions it comes out to play and I wore it for my Graduation and my skin looked amazing on the pictures.

Make up Revolution Flawless Palette 
Like I've said previously, I love drugstore beauty items just as much as high end and I am a big big fan of the Make Up Revolution range; particularly their eye shadows. I think they are amazing and just as pigmented as some high end brands that I own. I first saw the flawless palette on Jasmine Talks Beauty's blog and fell in love. I mean the colours for one are so pretty and the shimmery vibes give me all the feels. I LOVE wearing the burgundy shades during the autumn and the golds look amazing for a NYE smokey eye. Highly recommend this palette; you get 32 shades for £8.00. BARGAIN!

Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream
Ok, this is probably one of my favourite recommendations from bloggers. I didn't really understand why anyone could rave about a multipurpose lip product as much as Gabbie from Velvet Ghost does, but obviously I caved and now I am just as hooked as she is. This stuff is seriously incredible. Like honestly, it makes my dry skin on my lips and face gone. You get so much in the tube and it lasts forever. It's pricey for a gel but I will 100% be repurchasing this because I love it so much. I would highly recommend.

Bondi Sands Fake Tan
I am always looking for a new fake tan to try and saw so many reviews online of the Bondi Sands tan that I couldn't resist trying it out. I always used to use the St Tropez tan but that is expensive if you tan often so then I went to the other end of the spectrum and tried St Mortiz which I loved just as much but it was so cheap that it wasn't great for the period of time between your fake tan applications and it became fairly streaky so I wanted to try the Bondi Sands. It was actually Jordan's Beautiful life who persuaded me to try this and I am so glad because I love it. It applies really easily and doesn't smell like biscuits like most fake tans. It's fab and doesn't streak on me.

Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette
So this palette is my newest obsession. It's no secret that this has been hyped by most bloggers and YouTubers since its release and I am not surprised. This is my aesthetic. Warm shades; some matte and some shimmer - so perfect for this autumn season. I ended up buying this after seeing a make up tutorial from Rachel Leary and just couldn't not buy it. It looked so good on her and I bought it pretty much a week later and haven't stopped wearing it. I wear it for both a day and night look and love the burnt orange shades. You can see my full review here.

Mac Mineralise Skin finish in Soft and Gentle
I LOVE glowy skin and I honestly don't know what I used to do without highlighter. I love it and have a fair few in my collection but my first ever highlighter; and my all time favourite is still the Mac Mineralise Skin finish in Soft and Gentle. When I first started blogging this was all the rage and I obviously caved and bought it. I've also since crumbled and purchased gold deposit which is an amazing highlight for when you have a tan.

Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Face Mask
I first heard about the Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Mask over on Haysparkle's blog and was eager to try it. A few bloggers had featured the masks on their sites and I was dithering as to which type of mask I'd go for but I ended up choosing the Charcoal mask. I was a little apprehensive to try it due to my dry skin and the charcoal masks aren't always good for dry skin but after speaking to one of the lovely girls at the Leeds store I was reassured that as long as I use it a maximum of once a week then it will be ok and since I've been using it I've loved it.

Kylie Lip Kit
There was massive hype around the Kylie Lip Kit; not just with bloggers but also with every make up lover across the globe. I didn't want to give in to the hype but after watching Gabbie's numerous YouTube videos on the various different shades I knew I had to get one to try. I was lucky enough to get one for my birthday from my sister and I am so grateful. She bought me Candy K and Posie K. I really like how they look on the lips, especially if you use the lip liner too.

Are there any products that you bought because of a bloggers influence? I have many more on my wishlist ready for my next trip to Superdrug and Boots!
