The Blogger Made Me Buy It-ZOELLA
As a beauty blogger and lover, I love discovering new blogs and their favourite products. I am easily influenced by my favourite bloggers ad I trust their opinions of the products they review. If one of my favourite bloggers raves about a product, then it is more the likely that I will later purchase that product. So I thought I would do a new series about the products I have bought under the influence of beauty bloggers and vloggers.
This post I am going to show you the products I have bought after hearing probably the most famous beauty blogger talk about them. That, of course, is Zoe Sugg aka Zoella. I was quite late to the party when I discovered Zoella, I had heard other beauty bloggers talk about her so decided to give her channel a view. It is very hard not to like Zoe and her amazing videos, she seems like such a down to earth and laid back person, and someone you would struggle not to get on with.
After watching a few hauls and favourite videos, I had heard Zoe mention the same two products over and over again, and I knew I had to give them a try.
The first is the Rimmel by Kate Moss 107 lipstick. It is a deep blue-toned red and is very bold and striking on the lips. Zoe often wears a bright lip in her videos, and not only had I seen her wear this but she had mentioned often that this was one of her favourite lipsticks. And I can totally see why! The lipstick has a matte finish but is anything but drying on the lips and applies like a dream due to its lovely creamy consistency. Because of the shade, the lipstick does last a while and needs minimal touch ups. This has become one of my favourites and when I want a classic fail-safe makeup look then I quickly reach for this shade.
The second product(s) are the Sleek blushes. Before watching Zoella, I had never even heard of Sleek however when she compared their blushes to those from Nars and spoke about their high pigmentation then I wanted to check them out. The first shade I bought was Rose Gold which, as the name suggests, is a rose blush with gold shimmer particles that can double up for a highlighter aswell. Its a beautiful blush and I wear it almost daily. The second shade I bought was Life's A Peach which is slightly more subtle than rose gold and is a gorgeous peach shade which adds a great pop of colour to the cheeks and is perfect for sunny spring days. Zoe was absolutely right about how great these blushes are, super pigmented and look beautiful on the skin.
I'm so happy with both of these products and their purchase was mainly due to Zoella's videos, so thank you to her for that! Are you a Zoella fan? Have you tried any of these products?
