you helped me save A LOT of money =D my SO <3 your blog for that! your dupes & honest reviews make my shopping much effective & regret free .. Thanks <3

Both! It’s like at home shopping, I see new things, some I like and some not so much. I think blogs and YT has made me a better more informed shopper overall.

Is it weird to say both?

I tend to splurge on higher end items but I buy less on collections. Blogs are great for window shopping and budgeting!

inspire to spurgle definitely. Its hard to think you can’t have one eyeshadow and one lipstick if someone buys the whole collection eventhough their circumstances may be different to yours. You are surrounded by people whose passion is make up . LOVE blogs though!

Both. Swatches can make me want something I wasn’t originally interested in, or save me from buying something that wouldn’t work for me. I usually have to order beauty products online because I can’t find them in stores where I live, so this blog has been extremely helpful.

both– so it balances out pretty well, except I’m usually happier with my purchases whether it’s a pass, a steal or a splurge

THEY MAKE ME SPLURGE………..if beauty blogs were not there..i would not have knwn so many things and hence not have felt like buying them….

I’m a beauty blogger myself, and I’d have to say they inspire me to splurge- there’s definitely a “keeping up with the Joneses” effect to being part of the BB community. Everyone gets so excited about a product or brand, and I just feel like I’m missing out on something big if I don’t try it too.

Having said that, I’ve also held back on many an item I might have purchased after seeing online swatches or reviews…maybe in the end it all evens out?
