Hi guys! The concept of the “YouTube Made Me Buy It!” post is nothing new, but I haven’t done one yet and as an avid YouTube-watcher I thought this would be fun! So let’s take a stroll through some of my past makeup purchases that I was convinced I needed from watching YouTube!
Too Faced | Chocolate Bar Palette
When I started getting into watching YouTube more, this product was already out. I wasn’t convinced I needed it right away as I had all three of the Urban Decay Naked palettes already. But, KathleenLights won me over with her constant praise of this palette. Do I regret buying it? Not at all, I love this palette! Plus, it smells like chocolate.
L’Oreal | Pro-Matte Foundation
I am someone who needs a matte foundation so when I started to see this pop-up all over YouTube I knew I needed to try it. I believe I first saw it on Young, Wild & Polished’s channel. Do I regret buying it? Nope! This is my go-to drugstore foundation. I’ve probably gone through 5 or 6 tubes of this!
Becca | Shimmering Skin Perfector (Pressed)
YouTube was where I first heard of Becca and their widely loved highlights. I’ve seen these on so many channels so it’s hard to say where I saw them first. Jaclyn Hill was definitely one of the main enablers though with all her collaborations with Becca. The first one I picked up was the Champagne Glow Palette which had 3 different ones in it, and I’ve subsequently bought Moonstone and the Champagne Collection Face Palette which features two. Do I regret buying them? Clearly not if I’ve purchased more than one! Definitely love them a lot!
Too Faced | Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks
I bought two of these after KathleenLights did a swatch video of most, if not all, of the shades in this range. This was the first liquid formula lipstick that I ever purchased, actually! Do I regret buying them? Kind of. I don’t wear them often at all. The shades I picked are gorgeous and I love how they look on the lips but I don’t find them long wearing at all. I much prefer a matte lip! I do love their melted mattes though!
Kat Von D | Monarch Palette
I saw this palette a lot on Young, Wild & Polished’s channel around the time I started watching her. I was instantly drawn in by the beautiful warm shades which were unique to my baby-sized collection at that time. Do I regret buying it? Not a chance. This is by far one of my favourite palettes. I’m still a little crushed that it has been discontinued.
Well, I think I’ll have to do a part 2 of this are some point because there are definitely other products in my collection that were purchased because I saw a rave review on YouTube. I don’t usually end up regretting many of my makeup purchases as I usually research quite a bit before ordering things. Most of the products that I don’t like are samples that came from subscriptions.
Anyways, what is a product YouTube made you buy? Let me know in the comments down below!
