10 Beauty Products that are Not Worth the Hype

  1. L’Oréal Voluminous Mascara – Carbon Black
    • By the way everyone raves about this product I thought it would be amazing and better than my holy grail (Too Faced BTS), but it isn’t.
    • It IS a good mascara for volume – but not for length.
    • CoverGirl has equally great mascaras.
  2. Makeup Forever Skin Equalizer Primer
    • Doesn’t control my oil so makeup longevity decreases.
    • Might be better for someone with dry skin.
    • Don’t notice a smoothing effect.
  3. NUME Curling Wands
    • I have the set with 3 barrels (big, medium, small).
    • Hair doesn’t hold a curl very long with these
    • Temperature keeps fluctuating
    • The one pro is that my hair does look shiny when I use this product.
  4. Soap and Glory Body Butter and Shower Gel
    • I expected this to be amazing because it’s raved about so much.
    • Quality is okay – there’s nothing AMAZING about it but the scent
    • I think Bath and Body Works is comparable or maybe even better.
  5. Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kits
    • Hard to blend, don’t recommend for beginners
    • The yellow colored concealer is a little harsh for most skin tones
  6. Anastasia Beverly Hills Powder Contour Kits
    • Don’t use this product alone as just a powder contour because after a couple hours the product will separate and be very patchy on the face (oily skin).
    • Works better on top of a cream concealer. Mist with Fix+.
    • I like the cool toned contour color to carve out my cheekbones.
  7. Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits
    • Pigmentation is good BUT WAY TOO DRYING for the price point
    • Gets patchy during the day
  8. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment
    • Expected more from this product because of the price
      • I wasn’t WOW-ed by it
    • Similar effects to chapstick
  9. Colour Pop Matte Liquid Lipsticks
    • Extremely drying
    • LOVE their lippie stix (Rayezor is my fave) just not their ultra mattes
  10. Urban Decay Glitter Liner and Single Shadows
    • Liner: not enough sparkle, thin, need to build up intensity
      • Would use NYX liner instead because it’s cheaper and has more glitter
    • Shadows: again, not enough sparkle, fall out is crazy
      • If you’re looking for a shimmery finish as opposed to a glitter finish then this would be great for you.
      • I have three glittery eye shadows that look beautiful in the pan but when applied it, it just looks like a powdery shadow.
