The Bloggers made me buy it!

'So last year' I hear you say? Correct. Had a bunch of products I wanted to photograph? Correct. Welcome to 'The Bloggers made me buy it'.

The camera:
As this post is predominantly beauty based (blame the schedule) and I've popped up a review on this dreamy thing..I'll quickly wizz over the fact that the Olympus Pen has made waves in the Blogging world for a while. If I wasn't apart of it, I doubt I'd know of the camera. But then again if I wasn't a blogger I wouldn't have spent that amount on one anyway...

The Touche Eclat highlighter was, for what I could see, on the tips of a bunch of people's tongues not too long ago. I bought the limited edition one, which, I can't realllllly use as a concealer and actually, never gets picked up when painting on my face anyway. I think I'll have to make a point of using this again! 

The Rouge Volupte Shine lipstick was a purchase made after watching Freddy Cousin Brown's collection video. I had a voucher for Debenhams and thought what a better way of treating myself than to a lipstick that I'll barely use because I don't want to waste it. Safe to say this beauty is tucked away so I'm not tempted by its shiney shiney packaging. 

Sleek Highlighting palette
This thing was had by everyone everywhere. For £10 you could pick up four shades, two powder and two cream, that would make you glow like the Goddess you really are. It's the only highlighter I use now and it's a daily staple in my make up bag.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
I can't live without this. For the past, say, 5 years or so I've had a good 3 or 4 of these babies on the go at once. The price has hiked up from just under £2 (or so I can remember) when the hype first started by people like Zoe Sugg to nearly a fiver now. I'll never be over this. And Freddo Frogs. The pain is still there.

Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation
This is still a fairly new foundation and an update I believe to the first Healthy Mix one, released not too long ago. When the press releases came out and we saw bloggers and youtubers being whisked off to Paris to celebrate it's launch, I was, for the first time ever, mesmerised by the results and was gutted when my shade was sold out everywhere. Finally I managed to pick it up in Superdrug and, although I'm currently loving my MAC face and body, this one is definitly second on the list. 

Benefit Hoola bronzer
The perfect shade for pale girls. This is just enough for a contour but still too dark for me to use as an overall bronzing powder. Darn my see through skin. 

EOS lipbalm
I have to say I haven't used this in years. I can't stand the white balm it leaves on the lips and I feel it does more harm than good to me. However I know people who swear by it so it's completely personal preference here! The egg shaped balm was huge back in the day and one fateful afternoon in Topshop I decided to pick one up for a good old £7 and still kick myself for it. Thats 7 McDonalds cheeseburgers.
