Products not worth the hype

Hey everyone and welcome to today's post which is going to be all about products I don't think are worth the hype. Normally I'm not one to go on and on moaning about makeup I don't like but I do think that for me personally there are some things I just don't understand the hype around, and I am going to be sharing those with you today.
The first thing I have is the Maybelline baby skin instant pore eraser primer. I remember buying this because I had heard sooo many people rave on about it and how it was a dupe for the Benefit pore fessional. But I was really disappointed with it, it feels really siliconey on my skin when I apply it and I find that it doesn't help my makeup stay on any longer than it would with out a primer. Since buying this I have found other primers that I like a lot more.
The next thing I have is the Collection lasting perfection concealer and to be honest I feel slightly worried that you are all going to chase me with pitch forks for saying I don't like this. But honestly I can't see the hype around this product at all, it's an okay concealer for the price and i don't dislike it per say, but I have used other concealers that I prefer over this and I find that after a while it starts to look cakey on my skin. If it's a good cheap concealer you are after I would definitely recommend the Seventeen stay time concealer over this any day!
Speaking of Seventeen, for my third and final product I have their skin wow three way highlighter. I read lots of great reviews on this product when I was on the hunt for a new primer and highlighter and seeing that this claimed to do both I thought it would be great, however I was wrong. As a primer I hated this as it has tiny shimmer in it which I found made my face look strange and it also made my face feel really sticky. Then as a highlighter for the tops of my cheekbones it wasn't much better, it was really hard to blend in so it didn't look to harsh and even then it just didn't look the way I would want a highlighter to. I felt like it was drawing attention to my cheeks but for the wrong reason.

I would love to hear if you agree or disagree with these products I have spoke about, and remember these are just my opinions and just because they didn't work for me, doesn't mean they wont work for you.

  1. Completely agree with you about the Collection Concealer, I used to think it was amazing, but I've found far better drug store concealers since!
