They Made Me Buy It!

I like watching YouTube. A lot. And of course doing that I am influenced to buy way too many things I do not need just because someone raved about how much they loved it. Let's be real, some of these they casually mentioned in a haul and I was still like OMG I need that. With that being said, here is my little list of those said items and who it was that (easily) convinced me to run out and pick it up. Also some of these products I was lucky enough to get in subscription boxes!

  • Casey has influenced me to buy a whole bunch of stuff. Everything she talks about though I absolutely love, so I will probably still continue to fall to her influence.Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous Foundation looove this! I need to get a lighter shade for winter though. Super great coverage and doesn't turn me into the grease ball at the end of the day.
    Rimmel ScandalEYES Nude Liner is so creamy and long lasting and great for brightening up the eye when I stick it on my waterline.
    Stila's Eye Shadow Pan in Kitten is the most beautiful sparkling nude that sometimes I just wear alone all over my lid.
    Fructis Hydra Recharge Shampoo & Conditioner, sorry I only pulled the shampoo out for this picture, but this smells so good. Is it weird that I just stand in my shower and breathe it in sometimes? Doesn't matter, it will still happen.
    Garnier BB Cream, I am soo in love! Wonderfully thick (in a good way) that covers everything and is soo hydrating. My favorite go to skin perfecter during summer because it has SPF too!
  • Leighann, I try to resist and it just doesn't happen.
    Nude Tude Palette, unfortunately I ended up not liking this, oh well.
    Benefit's rockateur blush, hello I love you! I don't know why it took me so long to pick it up but this rose gold loveliness is so beautiful.
  • Ingrid has led me to some fun and necessary finds.
    Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer, this smells so good, just like chocolate!
    Garnier Cleansing Gelee, it looks so fun. I just love gel cleansers or gel anything for skin care because it feels so light on my face.
    Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Clear, again, I don't know how I lasted so long without this stuff to set my brows.
  • Meghan Rosette, I just absolutely adore, she has the best vlogs ever.
    NYC Bronzer in Sunny is the best all over bronzer ever!
  • Rachel is slightly awkward which is just beyond precious and I love her.
    Revlon Lip Butter in Wild Watermelon really is a fun Popsicle stain look on the lips.
    Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush looked so fun in her videos! The way it would bounce back when you pressed it down is what drove me to get one. Unfortunately then I found out I disliked cream blushes.
  • EleventhGorgeous united me with two of my favorite mascaras ever!
    Covergirl Clump Crusher has to be my number one favorite mascara ever. It has the ability to curl my stubbornly droopy lashes and does a great job defining it.
    Covergirl Flamed Out gives me the volume that Clump Crusher fails to deliver. I also love the brush and the super wet formula that just really coats my lashes.
  • Kelly is a new follow for me and her weekly OOTD and FIFs are my favorite.
    Essie's Wicked which is a gorgeous dark, dark red and after I saw her feature it in multiple OOTD I just had to have it. Allison also talked about it and reaffirmed my need for it.
  • Melissa really has the most honest reviews out there.
    GlamGlow YouthMud, she just raves about this stuff and I was eager to try it but didn't want to buy it which such a steep price tag. So excited when I got this in an Ipsy bag!
    Physician's Formula Bronze Booster has a slight shimmer to it that makes for a very pretty bronzer.
  • April, I absolutely love her!!
    NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Tea Rose, she was wearing this in a video once and I just thought it was the most beautiful color and just had to have it.

Then there are a handful in which either too many people talked about or I just don't remember who it was exactly: Jordana Twist & Shine Balm Stain, I have six of these now...out of eight.
Macadamia Deep Repair Masque, I got my hands on a single use sample packet so I could try this out before dropping the big bucks on the full size.
bareMinerals Marvelous Moxy Lipstick, I have five colors now and I'm already eyeing a few more shades that I want.
Essie's Ballet Slippers, I realized I didn't have anything like this in my collection (huge surprise, I know), so listening to everyone and their mom talking about this, naturally I had to have it.

I'm sure in the future there will be another massive influx of new products influenced by YouTubers, now I understand how they make money from sponsors because single-handedly I think I've contributed greatly to a few company's revenues.
