Recently I’ve been seeing lots of people doing videos and blog posts called ‘Youtube Made Me Buy It.’ Basically, it’s talking about products you bought because of the hype on Youtube. I have quite alot so this is the first part. I hope you enjoy and let me know what Youtube made you buy.
The Urban Decay Naked palettes are massively hyped on Youtube and literally every Youtuber owns them all. I bought the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette, £38.50, because of massive hype and I’m so glad I did. I bought the Naked 3 because I loved the look of the colours and I really like pinks on me. The pigmentation and blendablity of these shadows is increadible and they wear for such a long time. I get use from all but ‘Darkside’ which I just don’t like so much. There is a black, a white, a matte brown, a few shimmery browns, a matte pink, a few shimmery pinks and a shimmery copper colour. The shade ‘Blackheart’ is the best black eyeshadow ever, it’s matte with red micro glitters. Apart from that one, my favorite shades are ‘Liar,’ ‘Nooner’ and ‘Buzz.’ I personally think this is worth the hype, but only if you suit pinks and have the right skin tone and colour for these shades.
Another product from Urban Decay that was massively hyped was the eyeshadow primers. I bought the Urban Decay Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Primer Potion, £18, having never tried an eyeshadow primer before. I was so impressed with how much more smoothly my eyeshadow went on, how much easier it was to blend out and how much longer it lasted. It applys transparent and dries that way too which I like. Then I tried the Urban Decay Original Eyeshadow Primer, £16, which I actually like alot more than the anti-aging one. It does everything the anti-aging one does but I just like it a bit more, I find it goes on better. I have Eden and Sin, ready to try and I’ll let you know my thoughts on them soon. What’s your favorite one?
When this mascara came out it was hyped so much, a main reason probably being its affordability. I gave into the hype of the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara, £7.99, pretty soon after the hype began. I’m so glad I did. I instantly started getting compliments on my lashes and it is probably the best mascara I’ve used. It volumises, thickens, lengthens and lifts the lashes and it never smudges. As well as the original formula, I have tried the waterproof one which literally will not come off. I’ve also tried the intense black formula which is my favorite as I like really black lashes. I have came to the conclusion that it’s the wand that makes it so good. It’s such an unusual wand and I can’t compare it to anything else. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
A foundation which everyone loves is the L’Oreal True Match Foundation, £9.99, which has recently been hyped loads but has been loved my the beauty community for years. I think the marketing and shade range of this is amazing but in general, I really dislike this foundation. I think the formula is rubbish and the coverage is awful, but it may just be my skin type.
