Let me ask you a question: Don’t you just hate it when you finally purchase that super hyped up beauty product that you have had your eye on for awhile only to realise it isn’t that great after all! Well, in today’s post I will talking about 5 products that in my opinion just did NOT live up to the hype!
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Concealer ($9.99)
As much as I tried to like this concealer, it just does not work for me. Personally, I found this so hard to blend and no matter how much I made sure to hydrate my under eyes, it would always look dry, cake-y and settle in to the fine lines (basically everything I DONT want in a concealer). I got the shade ‘neutralizer’ which is a banana shade that although did do a great job at brightening my under eye, failed to give the coverage I was looking for meaning I would have to layer this on top of my normal concealer which again led to even more cake-yness!
L’Oréal Pure Clay Mask ($9.79)
After reading tons of positive reviews on this mask by bloggers, I knew I had to get my hands on it especially because I am a sucker for any kind of detox charcoal mask. While this may be a great option for those of you with oily skin, after several tries, I came to the conclusion that this mask did NOTHING beneficial for my dry skin. As much as I enjoyed the process of applying it and watching it sucking the oil/dirt out of my pores, it always left my skin super dry and was not that great at getting rid of my blackheads! I much prefer my Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Charcoal Mask ($5.88) which is way cheaper and delivers amazing results!
Cover FX Drops – Sunlight ($42)
You guys know I am all about that glow-y skin but one thing I dislike with a passion is GLITTER on my face and if you are like me, I suggest you stay away from this product. Yeah it might seem great for an Instagram makeup look but in real life you can literally see the glitter particles just sitting there on your skin! I tried using this on it’s own and mixed in with my foundation; however, both times I was left with particles of glitter on my face rather than a ‘luminous glow’ as promised by the product.
Kylie Cosmetics Matte Lip Kits ($29)
I am sure you all remember how hyped these were when they first came out, everyone and their mothers were running to get their hands on one before they ran out of stock in a matter of hours (nice marketing Kylie). I was super excited when mine arrived only to realize that the lip liner was BROKEN (i did not pay $29 for this)! As for the liquid lipstick, I absolutely loved the shade I got (ginger); however I felt like it exaggerated the lines and texture on my lips way too much (yes, I did exfoliate my lips)! Also, it did this thing where it would kind of just crumble off of my lips if I ate anything and reapplying was definitely not an option as it would just look more crusty and dry! All in all, not worth my money!
EOS Lip Balm
Sure, these lip balms look cute and all but how well do they actually work at moisturizing the lips? Not very much! I feel like it hydrates my lips for a few minutes after applying and then kind of just disappears in to thin air leaving me with dry lips.
Have you tried any of these products? What do you think of them? What are some products you think are definitely NOT worth the hype?
