Today, we are focusing on some not so loved products. With so many lovely products in the world, it is easier to blog all about the great things, but I think it’s about time we focus on a few I wasn’t as happy with. Now remember, these are things that didn’t work for ME, everyone is different! Some of these are things that are highly loved by others. Also, it’s not necessarily that I hated the products or anything…just that I wouldn’t want to use them again. Ok, let’s get talking!
Revlon Photoready BB Cream- Believe it or not, this was the first BB cream I ever bought. I was curious about the trend, but didn’t want to spend too much money on one. I’d loved other Revlon base products, so I thought I could trust the brand. What I don’t like about this BB cream is two main things. It feels very greasy, which leads to an oily, shiny appearance. I’m rarely shiny (dry skin queen over here), so to see a product make me shiny is SO annoying! I also felt this product felt heavy on the skin, and didn’t let me skin breath causing me to break out.
Whish Correcting Gel- One main thing. My eyes BURNED when I used this product! Luckily it was a small sample size from an Ipsy bag, but I just HAD to mention it. I also felt this broke my skin out. That with the burning…oh what a bad combo. Not sure what caused either problem!
Benefit High Beam- So I’m pretty sure this is one of those widely loved products in the beauty world. I just…don’t really like it! I find it hard to blend into my skin, and instead I end up with more of a stripe of highlight that doesn’t look natural. I also find I don’t like the shade. It’s a bit too pearly and opaque, that I feel like it is too obvious I’m wearing it. I definitely prefer powder highlights. Sometimes I mix High Beam in with my foundation for a glowy look, which I like a little better.
Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hour Color in Keep Up the Flame- It’s weird, I don’t really even remember why I bought this, considering I’m not much of bright lip wearer. The way this product works is that you paint the lip with the color on one end, wait for it to dry, then use the lip balmy end to keep the lips glossy and moisturized. So, it feel like paint. On your lips. The entire time I wore this product, I couldn’t pay attention to anything other than how my lips felt. I also felt the product feathered a bit, it was hard to get a nice clean line. Let’s not talk about how hard it was to get off!!
Rimmel Show off Lip Lacquer in Luna- I’m pretty sure the Rimmell Show Off or Apocolips lacquers were all the rage when they first came out. When I finally got my hands on them, I bought two colors, Luna and Big Bang. I LOVE Big Bang (bright red) but for some reason Luna was another story. The product would settle into every line in my lips, even if I was nicely moisturized. Also, any tiny bit of dry skin was suddenly so obvious. The color would always come out patchy too…ugh. Big Bang isn’t like that at all!
