Don't believe the hype !
I love those videos on youtube....May be more than the raving ones because it saves me money ;-) So as I am a superstar of blogspot AND a big authority in make up , I decided to do my own post (mouhahahahah)!
here comes the list of not-so-loved but bought in a whim products:
Metrochic OPI nail polish : Don't throw pebbles, please! I am not saying that it's bad...It's ultimately fashionable, you always get a comment on your nails when you wear it (most of the comments : classy nail varnish and such an original color).BUT, I find it a nightmare to apply, it seems to shrink on my nails (?!!!). SO the formula is not worth the $$$ invested in my honest opinion ....
NARS Orgasm blush : Again, I know this one is praised all over the make up galaxy...It supposed to work on every skin tone...and be the most flattering flush of the universe...May be a peach-pink blush is just not working that well on me? It was supposed to be my everyday blush... Frankly, NYX Angel IS my everyday blush.
MAC Satin taupe e/s : again one of the stapple in a make up collection, it is said ...Well, first, I find it can be duped. Second, it can look muddy on the lid if overblended. Pretty? Yes ! Worth the hype? No !
MAC Feline khol liner : amazing black color, amazing staying power on my watery lower lash line....but such a mess, it smudges everywhere....I wanted so much to love this one and I still wear it because it's such an intense black liner but it is high maintenance and I don't want to rush to the bathroom every 30 min to see if I don't look like a raccoon....
MUFE aqua eyes collection : Those colors are so beautiful....on my hand when swatched...But, they don't want to stay on my waterline....BUMMER !
Revlon photoready foundation: I don't find the staying power to be impressive. Frankly, I prefer the colorstay for high coverage and my new find Annabelle Skintrue foundation for light coverage...Photoready will be used but mixed with other foundations to do the trick and I don't like complications at 7am ! Deception !
Bluffdust from Benefit : it is supposed to reduce the redness...Not working, looking powdery, expensive. I now use it when it is hot just dusted on my T zone...but again other products delivers better than that for a fraction of the price....
Voluminous mascara : not pictured there as I tossed it with rage. I HATE this mascara...I guess this is very clear hahaha
This post was inspired by Lipstick rules as she said sometimes she's so enthusiastic about a product and then : END OF LOVE STORY....I recognise myself so much in this !
Have a wonderful week end, lovelies and don't forget to enter my GIVE AWAY
