They Made Me Do It! (part 1)

Hi ladies,

I think there is (or there was) a tag that was YouTube made me do it going around.
Well, this post will be about that but I will mention exactly who and when they made me do it.

Let's start with some recent buys and then we can take it from there.
This is part 1 but expect more.

These are from the current Mac Peacocky Collection.

These are 2 Mega Metal Shadows in 
Top of The Posh (frosty pink)
Paparazz-she (crazy bronze)

So, who made me buy this one?
I blame Cora from Vintage or Tacky for this one.

Cora is incredibly talented with make up and she shares everything she knows.
She's so generous with her knowledge and she's super creative.

She does COLOUR make up like no one but there might be a video or two on no make up make up and some nude make up or day make up for some.
She recently joined the freelance Mac make-up artists team.
If you are not subscribed to her channel you are mad.

You can see her video where she shows this e/s in action here.
I'm warning you now. This look is mind blowing!

What do I think about this e/s after I used it?
I'm speechless!
I recreated Cora's look and it's such a gorgeous color and what impressed me about this type of e/s was the texture. So creamy and so easy to blend. I want more now!

Top of The Posh
So, who made me buy this one?

It was Gregory from GregoryGORGEOUS.
I knowwww he's not for everyone and there are moments that he can get very annoying but when he's funny you can laugh out so loud! Seriously.

He has really really funny moments on the video he mentions this e/s.
He uses this e/s on his cheeks and that made me want to get it.

See his video where he mentions it here
Also, check out his early videos because he knows one thing or two about make up!
And his sense of humor is amazing. Very sarcastic but very funny.

What do I think about this e/s after I used it?
Well, I couldn't stop looking at the mirror!
I used it on my cheeks and OMG it's my favourite product to get a glowy cheek so far.
It's softer and nicer than the MSFs and that says something.
The colour is kind of pink but with a tiny bit of peach and gold as well.
I want a back up now.

There are millions of things that people make me buy but don't get me wrong.
I will never buy something just because so and so is using it.

If I like what I see on a video I will research it and google it for swatches and reviews to make double sure I will be happy with the purchase. However, I will always remember where I've seen it first and that's why I can say who made me buy it.

More of They Made Me Do It coming soon.



Who made you buy what?
Did I ever make you buy anything? Did you like it?

    Funny, i swatched them the other day on my hand and didn't feel they were that pigmented or creamy ...I can honestly say that Lollipop26 made me buy all the shades of nude lipsticks ever and the pixiwoo girls brushes and mac concealers!

    This is such a great post idea. I have bought so many things after seeing them on youtube or beauty blogs. Top of the Posh looks gorgeous. I swore I wasn&#39;t going to get anything from the Peacocky collection but I just bought unflappable and now I have to check this one out as well. You are a bad influence. If I get it, I&#39;ll have to do a similar post about you :)<br />xx<br />Alicia

    @EllysMakeupbag: Really? I think they are the creamiest e/s ever. I know what you mean about Laura. I too want her nude lipsticks but a nude lip does not suit me at all! X<br /><br />@Maria: Thank you!!! I&#39;ve swatched the UD liquid liner in purple and I loved it. It&#39;s top on my wish list! X<br /><br />@Lauren Baker: You are good! I really want more but I&#39;m thinking about it. X<br /><br />@Tracy D: Thank you! And I&#39;m sorry if I make you buy anything :-P. Honestly, try it on your cheeks. It&#39;s divine!!!! X<br /><br />@Alicia: Moi? Bad influence? Naaaaa! :-P Have a fab weeks Alicia. X
