YouTube Made Us Buy

Hey all!

Now we’ve seen a few influencers do this tag so we thought we would root through our makeup drawers and see what products YouTube influencers made us buy. Our makeup “knowledge” comes from constantly watching makeup tutorials on YouTube and they definitely have influenced us into buying a few things.

The only products that were not influenced by beauty gurus were the powder and brow product we used.


P R O D U C T S   U S E D:

Benefit Porefessional Matte Rescue – we saw a few people try and love this. Mainly Tati and SophDoesNails. It’s a nice primer and it does keep the face matte, we just don’t reach for it enough.
Rimmel Lasting Finish in Classic Beige 201 – Soph (we are going to mention her SO MANY times!) tried this foundation out and liked it. So we, of course, had to get it too. It’s a great full coverage foundation and really sinks into the skin nicely.
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair – Again, Soph inspired this purchase. But also Sophie Louise – if you have never heard of her, why not!? She posts makeup tutorials and funny videos too, so check her out! This was our very first concealer purchase and never looked back. It’s just a nice full coverage concealer.
Benefit Hoola Bronzer – It’s quite hard to pin point the exact influencer that got us to buy this – we think it was Manny MUA. This product is just perfect for our complexion. It’s not too warm that it looks orange but not too cool that it looks muddy.
Barry M Ready Set Smooth Loose Powder

Sleek Solstice Highlight Palette – NikkieTutorials, the QUEEN of highlight, inspired us to buy this and it’s probably one of our best purchases. It is just a fantastic palette with a few pans that suits us well. We love the palest shade as it’s a metallic silver without leaving a grey sheen on the face.
Benefit Gimme Brow 5
Benefit Rollerlash Mascara – Jeffree Star was the one that got us into this product. We know not a lot of people like Jeffree and he has got a shitty past but this product recommendation is damn good. It’s separating and lengthening without it getting clumpy.
Makeup Revolution Soph X Eyeshadow Palette (used for contour & eyebrows too) – Of course Soph! When she announced she was doing this collaboration, we immediately got it! We’ve talked about this product so many times now so if you are interested click here.
Jeffree Star Cosmetics & Manny MUA Velour Liquid Lipstick in Daddy – it’s pretty obvious who inspired us to get this but Tati, Nikki, Soph etc also talk about this a lot. Jeffree’s liquid lipstick formula is just one of our favourites. It’s a comfortable matte and super opaque. The applicator also makes applying so much easier that one swipe is really all you need.
