Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Lost Cherry
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Lost Cherry, just one of the products that I've been persuaded is worth the purchase

I follow a fair amount of blogs and I enjoy reading them all, but there are some bloggers who just excel at convincing me that I absolutely need certain products in my life, and I genuinely love them for it. Whether they have a similar skintone to me, or I just know I can trust their reviews, the five bloggers below are people whose posts often help me make decisions about what's worth spending my money on.

Annabel from Mascara & Maltesers
Annabel's writing style is so easy to read, and I love her reviews because her enthusiasm is very genuine and always shines through (plus it's good to read recommendations from fellow pale-skinned ladies). Also, she has the most incredible cheekbones I've ever seen.
Products purchased: Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in Beige Trench, Makeup Revolution Amazing Inner Eye Brightener and Essential Mattes palettes

Em from My Pale Skin

The name of Em's blog should be a giveaway, but this is the place I go to when I need something to suit my ghostly complexion. Her series about base products is so helpful and in-depth, and it was the first place I went when I needed a new concealer recently. She also creates some beautiful make up looks.
Products purchased: Bourjois Shine Edition Lipstick in Beiege Democrachic, Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Chantilly

Josie from Josie's Journal
Last month's raving about why triangle bras are amazing aside, I rarely, if ever, write about clothing, but I follow a handful of bloggers who do and Josie is top of the list. I love her minimal style, and get way more excited about seeing a new grey jumper or a pair of skinnies than I ever would about a statement dress.
Products purchased: Too many black items of clothing to count, and a pair of Chelsea boots that rarely leave my feet

Zoe from Classic Rouge

Zoe's incredibly detailed review of Charlotte Tilbury's Matte Revolution Lipsticks is what made me decide that they would be worth trying (I asked for them for Christmas, and having used them regularly since, I can say that I would happily part with the cash). She's also started posting some recipes for some delicious-looking food recently.
Products purchased: Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Lost Cherry and Amazing Grace; Missguided Activewear

Hayley from Water Painted Dreams

I always look out for Hayley's book posts! Her reviews say exactly enough for me to know whether I want to read a book or not, and I often leave her blog with a reading list that's doubled in size. Hayley is also a fellow cruelty free blogger, and it was in fact her post about going cruelty free that made me bite the bullet and do the same.
Products purchased: Numerous ebooks and paperbacks. Standouts include Where'd you go, Bernadette, which is adorably quirky, and Thirteen Reasons Why, which is probably one of my favourite YA books ever (I think I read it in one sitting).

Do you follow any of these blogs? Who would your enablers be? Let me know in the comments!
