LilyPebbles Made Me Buy It

This was originally going to be a "YouTube made me buy it" but it turns out Lily (From LilyPebbles) is the main influencer when it comes to me spending my money. Of course it does include Anna, but for me it needs to be confirmed by Lily for me to run out and buy it. 

So here is just some of the things that Lily has unknowingly made me buy - hope you enjoy :) 

Who remembers this time last year when Lily became obsessed with this combo? She wore it every day for months.... well needless to say I fell in love too.. and Mac Mehr remains a firm favourite for me, (Although it has been beaten recently by Dior 772 (Swatches here))

They should just give Lily & Anna shares in this product already. The hype is real around this one. I actually bought this the first time at a #BeautyChatLive event back in early 2015, I do love it - even if it smells like turkish delight :) 

Ok, so I have mixed thoughts on this one. I totally agree with Lily, it is stunning, I love it. I use it all the time, it blends like a dream and it just sticks all day... BUT - its £29.00, and I cry just thinking I spent that on an eyeshadow pencil. *sobs* (If you want an exact doupe check out my post on the Kiko Pencils - Swatches Here (They are near enough exactly the same)

I really love this one, it took me a while to make a splurge of £40 on a setting powder, but it really is like magic, and it seems to be lasting so long too. I love how it just blurs imperfections. Well worth getting! 

I really love this on no makeup-makeup days. It is the only gloss I will wear, because I hate sticky, and this just isn't overly sticky. Really beautiful product and I cannot wait to wear it all summer again. 

Lily has loved this one since 2014, and I got this late 2015. I am obsessed with this shade, it is the perfect subtle mauve colour for your cheeks which doesn't distract or stand out in an unnatural way - I love it, and it is without a doubt my most used blush - and Lily must love it, because she is still using it now. 

I bought this back in 2015 when Lily was obsessed with this, and used it exclusively for foundation until I discovered a sponge. Recently though I noticed Lily using it for cream bronzer, and well - its genius. Back into my everyday brush stash :) 

Lily has been loving Woodwinked since 2014, it was even in her only makeup you need video on her channel. I bought it last year. I finally gave in to it, and it is so nice, well worth picking up if you have a MAC palette :) 

I don't think Lily still has this, but a few years ago she was obsessed with this shade, and since then I have been too. It's the only nail varnish I have actually finished. 

now.. this is my latest addition. It was this item arriving which made me think to do this post - because I never would have bought it without Lily & Anna talking about it for over a year. I give in ok? I now have it. *and it smells so good!*
