Hey guys! Today I want to talk about products that have disappointed me lately. I don’t hate these brands, these products just didn’t work for me. Just because they didn’t work for me doesn’t mean they’re bad products and they won’t work for you. And so on and so forth. Okay lets get into it!
Hourglass Vanish Stick Foundation:
ICYMI: I have a review of the @hourglasscosmetics Vanish Stick Foundation up on the blog. Direct link is in my bio, and I have swatches comparing it to my other foundations in my last post. #bblogger #bbloggers #beautyblogger #bbloggersca #bbloggersuk #flatlay #makeupaddict #wakeupandmakeup #makeupartistsworldwide #makeup #motd #fotd #browngirl #browngirlblogger #makeupjunkie #makeuplover #makeupblogger #makeupobsessed #beautyblog #beautycommunity #flatlay #beautyflatlay #instamakeup #inspiration #foundation #stickfoundation
The hype surrounding this foundation on Youtube was intense. I like it because it is a perfect match, but the transfer is crazy, it settles into smile lines, and it needs constant touch ups. It is too damn expensive to be such a fussy foundation, and it is completely overhyped in my opinion. ABH Stick Foundation is much better for oily skin.
NYX Vivid Bright in Escape:
For some strange reason I thought this was yellow. So when I ooened it and it was a pastel lemon green I wanted to cry 😭. (The woes of shopping online). I only wear it to Instagram. I wish I’d picked a blue or a purple, something more wearable. The formula is bomb though, I should’ve just picked a better colour.
Estee Edit Pore Vanishing Stick:
This is cute and everything and I appreciate the ease and innovation of a primer stick but it makes zero difference to my makeup. It does NOT make my pores vanish. It’s a no from me.
Tarte Shape Tape Concealer:
You can read my full review here. This is the most drying concealer I own. It is not that it turns my under eye into a desert, but every other concealer I own is more creamy, and more hydrating. The shade range is not great. The undertones are not great either. The formula is alright, but there are definitely better concealers out there. I just don’t see what’s so special about it. It is an okay concealer, but I much prefer the NYX Photogenic HD concealer, Nars Radiant Creamy concealer, and Kat von D Lock It Concealer.
Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation
In my opinion, this is just an alright foundation. It didn’t wow me.
First of all, I find the undertones really weird. I tried 3 shades, two leaned grey and one leaned red. Also, it is really not the best at controlling oil. It didn’t emphasis my pores but didn’t diminish them either. Super meh! I will not be repurchasing.
NYX Total Control Drop Foundation is much better for oily skin in my opinion, as far as drugstore foundations go.
This looks like a gorgeous buttery yellow in the pan but blends out to a weak off white shade on my deep skin. It is also super patchy and impossible to build up.
ColourPop Ultra Blotted Lip.
This is just a very weird crumbly sheer formula and it is also patchy and I just don’t understand where they were going with this release.
Veet Facial Hair Removal Kit:
This hair removal cream removed my facial hair, which was great. It also removed a layer of skin and also burned my face in the process, which was decidedly less great. I’m also convinced the noxious fumes from this gave me a cold. It is absolutely awful and I don’t know how this could work for sensitive skin if it could irritate my non sensitive skin this much.
The Ordinary Salicylic Acid:
This is alright but it takes too long to actually work. Then again, there’s nothing else quite like this for under $10 so I suppose it is one of those “good for the price” products. I wouldn’t repurchase it though. If rather spend a little bit more money and get something a little more effective.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Ashton.
Listen, I feel particularly betrayed by this. The shade is gorgeous! I own nothing else like this. But why does the $20 ABH lipstick feel like a $6 ColourPop lipstick? I really, really don’t like this formula at all. I might have to pick up one of the many dupes for this shade.
So that’s it. Those are some products I currently feel are overhyped, or products that disappointed me. What product have you tried lately that didn’t live up to the hype?
Thank you for stopping by!
