There are plenty of articles and promotions on makeup products that you SHOULD buy and must have, however nobody will tell you what NOT to buy. The beauty business is one of the largest retail business and we sure know why. We love to look beautiful and any product that promises that is a “add to cart”. Nevetheless, there are lot’s of products that are just here to feed on your money and promise unrealistic things. Here are a few products that i have tried and bought and really saw no use out of them besides that i have spent far too much money on them
Makeup Products that are a waste of money
Here is the deal, yes we love big lips however, unless you dont use a needle to inject some botox, there is no such thing as a lip plumper! I have been so foolish to believe that this glam glow lip plumper will make my lips looking full and fab, yet i had a big diasappointement. Ever wondered why after eating a bag of hot spicy chips your lips feel blown up and full?! Because certain spices irritate the skin in that way and lip plumbers use exactly that. So save yourself 20$ and dab some hot spicy on your lips ( just kidding but you get the point!)
Designer Nail Polish
yes, marc jacobs nail polish bottle looks very cool, nontheless is it worth 20$ for a small tiny bottle?! We all have our weaknesses and yes that nailpolish will look great on my vanity, but seriouslsy there is nothing more special in that bottle. Nail polish has all the same ingredients no matter the price tag, so i will keep on using my 6$ H&M nail polish. I have reviewed them here.
Lower Lash Mascara
Another invention that is just here to make you believe you cant look amazing without it!
I have tried this Pixi lower lash mascara and seriously did not see a difference when using my relugar mascara or this one. Moreover, i liked the effect of my regular mascara better since the big wand covered my lashes more and fuller.
Tarte, Boscia and Milk makeup sells them amongst many others. It has basically the same effect when you use a kleenex tissue and dap your face with it. If you see that you have a bit of an oily glow, use a makeup powder or a tissue. No need to spend money on an additional product.
Another product to stay far away from. Makeup forever sells this for 35$ and let me explain why it’s a waste of money. There are so many ways to set your makeup you do not need this white powder on your face. Remember those aweful pictures from celebrities on the red carpet looking like a bag of flour spilled on them?! Thats this setting powder! If not used right this can go awefully wrong. Still want to spend 35$ for this? Use a spray or dont use anything at all. Your makeup will be just fine without it.
Did you ever buy a product that you regretted after? What product wont you buy again?
Would love to here your take on this post
