As a beauty addict, I never need an excuse to shop… but as a beauty addict with talented beauty blogging friends, I’m constantly feeling inspired to try out new goodies. Please keep reading for a mini list of beauty products that a blogger influenced me to buy.
A Blogger Made Me Buy It
Kate @ Kate Days a Week | Vichy – Mineral 89 Hyaluronic Acid + 15 Mineral-Rich Water
When I read Kate’s review of the Vichy Mineral 89 Hyaluronic Acid I knew that I needed to try this product because I love using hydrating serums as a mixing medium when applying other stronger, exfoliating facial serums. When my B-Hydra Serum finally ran out, I decided to pick up the Vichy serum at the drugstore. While I didn’t notice the same plumping effects as Kate, I did enjoy using this serum in conjunction with other exfoliating and brightening serums.
Simone @ Beautymone | Kylie Cosmetics – Kybrows Brow Pomade in Medium Brown
If you’re ever looking for honest thoughts on a Kylie Cosmetics or KKW release, Simone is definitely the person to ask because she’s tried so many releases from the two Kardashian-Jenner brands. After reading her review of the Kylie Cosmetics Kybrow Kits, I was intrigued to try one of the brand’s brow products. Kylie’s Fourth of July Sale provided an awesome opportunity to pick up the Kybrow Pomade at a discount!

Simone @ Beautymone | Bali Body BB Cream & Body Oil
Australia is a country that holds a very special place in my heart. I’m immediately interested whenever I find out at a story or a brand is based out of Australia, so when I read Simone’s glowing review of the Bali Beauty BB Cream and Shimmering Body Oil I knew I had to try this brand. After realizing Bali Body is sold at Ulta, I picked up the BB Cream and Tanning Body Oil during a sale this summer.
Tayler @ Tayler’s Edit | ColourPop – Main Squeeze Eyeshadow Palette
In case you were curious, Tayler is like the queen of colorful, MOOTD Flat Lays on Instagram. While there are quite a few palettes she’s made me want to try (
Dominique Cosmetics Latte & Lemonade Palettes), the ColourPop Main Squeeze Palette is a palette I 100% purchased after seeing it pop up on her IG feed. When the Main Squeeze Eyeshadow Palette first launched, I had very little interest in it, but I’ve clearly had a big change of heart after seeing it featured on her page!
Are you ColourPop obsessed or just discovering the brand? Check out my reviews of the ColourPop Sweet Talk Eyeshadow Palette, ColourPop x iLuvSarahii Through My Eyes Eyeshadow Palette, ColourPop Double Rainbow Super Shock Shadow Kit, and the entire ColourPop x Disney Villains Collection.
Thinking of ordering from ColourPop for the first time? Please consider using my referral link for $5.00 off your first order. If you make a purchase, I’ll also receive $5.00 off my next purchase. Please note, I’ve purchased all of the aforementioned items.
Being a part of the beauty blogger community on WordPress, Twitter, and Instagram has been so fun because it’s given me a chance to build friendships with other beauty-obsessed individuals who love to appreciate and talk about makeup. Although I love finding new products through my favorite influencers on Instagram and YouTube, being inspired to try new products that a blogger recommended feels entirely different. In many ways, it feels like I’m buying a product that a friend IRL would have recommended. Moreover, I love supporting other small content creators like myself.
As always, I do want to add this disclaimer: we are all responsible for our own shopping behaviors and purchases. No brand, influencer, or blogger ever truly makes us buy something, but brands, influencers, and bloggers can influence our interest in buying something. These style of posts are curated purely for fun.
