Blogger Made Me Buy It: Lily Pebbles Edition

Blogger Made Me Buy It: Lily Pebbles EditionHello beautiful people! You may be familiar with the concept of Blogger Made Me Buy It; posts detailing items fellow bloggers have convinced you to buy based on their recommendations. I haven’t done a Blogger Made Me Buy It before so I thought it’d be nice to kick things off with a special Lily Pebbles Edition! Lily is my favourite blogger and YouTuber and while I probably couldn’t afford most of the products she loves she has inspired a few of my purchases over the past year.

1) MAC Syrup

By now I’m sure you all know how much I love this lipstick! Syrup was my first MAC lipstick which makes it even more special. I purchased Syrup after watching Lily’s Top 5 Nude Lipsticks video and thinking to myself how beautiful the colour looked and how beautiful it looked on Lily. Syrup is not your typical nude, but adds a lovely wash of colour to the lips. This shade can be worn as part of a bold look with smokey, dramatic eyes or as part of an everyday. dressed down look.

2) MAC Patisserie

I promise you this is the second and last of my MAC lipsticks Lily inspired me to purchase (until I get my hands on Mehr). Patisserie is also mentioned in Lily’s Top 5 Nude Lipsticks video and after I fell in love with Syrup I knew I could trust her judgement. I also heard Anna (Vivanna Does Makeup) mention this shade a few times so I knew it must be good! I never expected to fall in love with Patisserie as much as I have – I think it’s the little gold flecks in the bullet.

3) Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Polish – Breakfast In Bed

Strictly speaking, this is not a Lily inspired purchase but rather a dupe for one of her favourite nail colours, Mint Candy Apple by Essie. If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to Mint Candy Apple or want to try this polish to see if the minty blue-green tones suit you I highly recommend Breakfast In Bed. The polish is opaque in two coats and dries quickly like the name suggests; not 60 seconds but pretty darn close! Breakfast In Bed also has a slight silver shimmer running through the polish. You can see it in the bottle and if you look at your nails closely, it is visible.

4) Essie – Chillato

Chillato is described as a frozen cream pistachio and I can honestly say is unlike any other nail polish colour I own. It looks pastel in the bottle but once on the nails it looks somewhat neutral with a lemon yellow tinge. First impressions of the polish: it’s okay. It wasn’t completely opaque after two coats and would probably have benefited from a third. The formula didn’t seem as smooth as my other Essie polishes and I wish the colour came out how it looks in the bottle. I don’t like painting my nails when they’re short so I’ll try Chillato again once my nails have grown and see if my thoughts are any different. I don’t regret this purchase but it is my least favourite of the Lily Pebbles inspired bunch.

Are there any products bloggers have convinced you to purchase?

    Haha SO many things I’ve been influenced to buy! But usually they are really good recommendations so I cannot complain. That MAC Syrup lipstick looks so pretty – watch out, if I buy it, I’m going to blame YOU! 😉
