The Bloggers Made Me Do It Haul

I bought a few things again this week, and these purchases are mostly credited to other bloggers (or being blamed on). So thanks guys, this is your fault.

Robowecop – Blamed for Models Own Lix in Pink Mint

I was over on Rihanna’s instagram stories and she posted about this lip colour which looked absolutely gorgeous, I hopped onto ASOS and used my Premier and a £5 voucher to get it to me the next day for £1. This is a gorgeous shade, and it’s got a proper mint taste and scent to it. It’s a uber bright pink that’s got me channeling summer vibes already. I wore this briefly on Friday night when it arrived and it was so comfortable and lasted really well through eating so I’d already made up my mind I wanted more.

Rose Beauty Files – Blamed For Nip & Fab Glycolic Facial Scrub

Post East Midland’s blog meetup, a few of us hit the shops for a little bit. Molly said this was her favourite facial scrub and I’ve been out of facial scrub completely since January. Nip+Fab was on the same crazy offer that it was when I  bought a few pieces from thee Glycolic pieces 2 weeks ago, so I snapped it up whilst it was still on offer as I’d been liking the range so far.

Sophie in Wonderland – Blamed for Models Own Lix in Raspberry Mojito & Barry M Polish in Fashion Icon

Now I’m sure that Sophie would in fact blame me for the fact she bought a Models Own Lix, but if I’d not been swatching them with her and showing her them… then I probably wouldn’t have bought one right in that moment – haha (sorry Sophie). Raspberry Mojito is a gorgeous dark pink shade that I’ll get a lot of wear from all year round.

Sophie was also showing me the Barry M polishes that she loved as I haven’t bought a polish from them in probably 18 months when I spotted this one. A stunning duo-chrome glitter with holo glitter in it too. I can’t wait to try this one out. Must stop buying polishes now and actually review them.

FiveZero – Blamed For Guerlain Polish in Lilac Belt & YSL Polish in Jade Imperial

My local department store is closing for refurbishment and clearing all of it’s stock, ready for fresh lines to come in. I of course made a bee-line for the beauty department on it’s first day of clearance to try and get the best deals I could.

I absolutely fell in love this nail polish I bought in the January Sales from Guerlain in the old style packaging (and formula…? I’m not sure on that one) and Chris @ Fivezero has had me crushing over the new style bottles since she’s been featuring them. I picked up the shade Lilac Robe which is a gorgeous bright pink plum – I’m also going to partially blame Stashy for the colour as she’d featured a similar colour on her blog the day I went shopping (OPI Dim Sum Plum). Joint influencers.

Lastly I picked up my first YSL polish in the shade Jade Imperial. I was sure when I picked this up I’d heard Chris haul it or review it, so this was the one I chose from the bunch – cause that gal has great taste in polish. Luckily I quizzed her on my return, and yes she does own Jade Imperial. It’s a gorgeous creamy sage green.

Guerlain Python Bag Lipstick

I have no one to blame, for this other than the department store’s silly prices. Reduced down from £22.50 to £9.75, I snapped this up big time. A gorgeous neutral shade that remind me of MAC Whirl with a gorgeous sparkle scattered loosely through out! I couldn’t resist it for the price.

I hope that’s the last of my shopping for the month, and I think I’m going to attempt a total no buy next month to help both my purse, and me catch up with the reviews as I’ve had a lot of new things come in since Christmas!

    Aaw of these products look like great suggestions to have got. That Barry M nail polish😍 I don’t need any more polishes but that is gorgeous x

    So much haulage! <3
    Haha I love how you blame both fivezero and myself in one. πŸ˜›
    The Barry M Polish in Fashion Icon is stunning! I might have one similar to it from Sephora Formula X line.
    I still haven't succumbed to the new Guerlain polishes / lipsticks yet. I'll likely redeem my points for them this year.

      You’re both guilty haha, I think it looks like a really close colour to dim sum plum! Hopefully it will be as good as the last one I’ve tried!
      Isn’t it, looks like a swish indie polish rather than a cheap one from Barry M!

  4. March 15, 2017 / 2:47 pm

    Oooh, those Model’s Own liquid lipsticks look stunning! Love the holo glitter of the Barry M nail polish too.

    It becomes so easy to be influenced by other bloggers after having read reviews on their blogs. I know it immediately sends me into an I-want-to-spend frenzy at times.
    These products look lovely! I am especially intrigued by the YSL polish and the Guerlain polish.
    Great post!

    I’m so easily persuaded to part with my cash when it comes to beauty! I’ve been tempted by the same lipstick by Rihanna too – she looked bloody gorgeous with it on. Even more tempted now…

      Ha, you were very well behaved, im still annoyed that moon dust was out of stock in urban decay (and debenhams, I did check on the way out!) I’ll place an order for it online soon! Shop again soon when we’re both richer! Xxx

    That guerlain packaging is so pretty! 😍 I have seen the models own lix but have so many gloss type products, I may be tempted by the darker colour though after my declutter I have planned if i have nothing like it.

  16. March 22, 2017 / 9:45 pm

    Hah this is such a great idea!! I think Rihanna is also convincing me to get Models Own Pink Mink, and now I can blame Sophie for Raspberry Mojito… But I am definitely blaming you for both!! Great read xxxx

  17. April 1, 2017 / 3:03 pm

    Some amazing products here! some that I now need to pick up as well! I can definitely pin point a lot of things in my collection that either YouTube or bloggers made me buy haha!

    I love Nip+Fab products too, they have a leg toner that I have been using recently which has really decreased the appearance of cellulite! That Barry M nail polish is stunning, I want to paint my walls with it!
    I was a little confused by the lipstick at first, I thought it was black! Looks a lovely shade though!
