I started watching Youtube a very long time ago. Not long after I discovered Youtube, I discovered beauty Youtubers. I started watching tons of tutorials, hauls, favourite videos and whatnot. During that time I also discovered that there was something called blogging, beauty blogging. I started reading a million blogposts regarding makeup, skincare, fashion, and all that kind of fun stuff. Thanks to all of those videos and blogposts I ended up buying quite a lot of products. Some of which I still use nowadays, some of which were terrible to begin with. Today I’m going to show you the things I bought thanks to Youtube and beauty blogs! If you’re interested in finding out which products I bought because of that, make sure you continue reading!
Let’s start with a very well-known product in beauty world, or actually products: the Nars Sheer Glow foundation and the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. I feel like everybody talks or has talked about these two products and even though I was able to resist it for quite some time I ended up buying both products anyways. In my opinion the products are a bit over-hyped, but they aren’t that bad.
Aside from Nars I also bought the Urban Decay Naked palettes thanks to Youtube. Even though the hype is kinda over right now, I still think these palettes are classic. I saw them everywhere back in the day and it was my ultimate goal to get my hands on one. I ended up getting my hands on three of them, but that’s not the point. I definitely think these palettes were worth the hype!
There is one Youtuber that made me buy more than others: MissGlamorazzi. Nowadays I think she goes by as Ingrid Nilsen, but back in the day, when she still made beauty videos, she was called MissGlamorazzi. She was my favourite Youtuber on earth and my inspiration. She always used such gorgeous and unique products: products not everyone were talking about at that time. One of the things I bought thanks to her is Bioderma. I know Bioderma is really big right now, but back when she talked about it for the first time it wasn’t.
Another thing I bought thanks to her is the Maybelline Color Tattoo in On And On Bronze. She used to use this underneath her eyeshadow in some of her videos and I loved the way that it looked. I actually still use that Color Tattoo nowadays as a base for my eyeshadows and I still really, really love it.
The next thing MissGlamorazzi made me buy is a palette with Stila Kitten. I remember watching a makeup tutorial of hers where she used Stila Kitten all over her eyelids. I fell in love with the colour and I knew that I needed it in my life. I ended up buying a palette that contained Stila Kitten instead of buying it as a mono, but all that matters is that I have it and that it’s an amazing colour!
Something I also bought because of Youtube, specifically because of American Youtubers, is Lady Speed Stick. We didn’t have it here in the Netherlands so before I started watching those American videos I never knew it even existed. When I first tried it I became obsessed and nowadays it’s the only deodorant I use!
When I think about what I got because of Youtube, I can’t think of a lot of things. But when I think of the reason why I bought some specific products I quickly find out that most of the time it’s actually because of Youtube. Something I didn’t think of immediately but that I definitely bought because of Youtube are these Tarte blushes.
Throughout the years I have heard so many amazing things about Tarte blushes, they were supposed to be amazing. Since Tarte is very difficult to get your hands on when you live in the Netherlands it took quite a while until I got the opportunity to give them a try. This year I finally bought them and I have to say: they’re great!
Another thing I wouldn’t even know the existence of if it wasn’t for Youtube is the Beautyblender. At some point everyone was using them. The Beautyblenders popped up everywhere. At first I thought it wasn’t for me, but once I gave one a try I fell in love and ended up using them all the time.
The last thing I wanted to show you is the MAC Mineralized Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle. If this isn’t the most well-known highlighter in the beauty industry I don’t know what it. Everyone, literally everyone, talked about it. You saw it everywhere. It didn’t take long until I decided I wanted it too and a while later I acted on it and bought it. In my opinion it definitely is a gorgeous highlighter, but it’s not the very best.
And that’s pretty much it for today’s post. I hope you enjoyed reading it
and be sure to let me know which products you bought thanks to Youtube/blogs!
