products NOT worth the hype :(


I don't really like doing negative posts, but when I was going through my make up box, it hit me there were quite a few items that I bought expecting a lot, but not enjoying them! I only chose five because I felt like such a scrooge choosing more, but there were a few more, sadly!
This is going to be a two part, with the second coming soon!

First of is MUA Cream Blush in Yummy. I don't know why, but I cannot work with cream blush at all. I just can't seem to work it properly, it leaves me with a patchy finish that just doesn't blend away. If anyone can help me out PLEASE DO!

Diorskin Nude BB Creme is a product I'm super disappointed with. I did a review here, so I won't go into too much detail. I just feel that because this was SO dark on me, even the lighter shade won't work. It sat in every single line on my face and was way too radiating that I looked gold.. Just not very nice. I did mix this in with a foundation the other day, so maybe I'll experiment with it more like this.

Okay, so not a product I hate, but it's definitely one that can be very temperamental which is very annoying - Rimmel Match Perfection. I got this before the bottle was redesigned so perhaps the formula has changed? I haven't heard anything though. Sometimes this can look really dark on me, other times it's perfect. It can be quite dry even without a powder and will sometimes flake a bit and stick to any dry patches and just look awful at the end of a day.

Mac Mineralise Satin Finish foundation - probably the most hated foundation in my make up box. It looks greasy yet is really drying, it's a light shade that ends up orange, it sticks to every hair on my face but not my skin, I just cannot express how much I HATE it. The only reason it's still there is because I'm waiting until I get a tan, maybe the greasyness and orange colour won't be as obvious then? I'm hanging onto loose threads, I know!

Finally Collections Lasting Perfection Concealer. I don't hate this product at all, I quite like it, but to me it's no where near as good as I expected. Some times it looks quite cakey or just doesn't blend very well. I still use this all the time though!


What products do you think aren't worth the hype? Look out for my products WORTH the hype coming soon!

  5. I'm so surprised about the concealer, I can see where you're coming from, people act like it completely changes your face, but I do love it and it's by far my favourite concealer

  6. Try applying the MUA blusher with a flat foundation brush. I have this
    blusher but in a different shade, but I always find cream blushers easier work with with brushes as opposed to finger application. :)
