Unpopular makeup opinions tag

So lately I’ve been drawing a lot of inspo from my fellow beauty bloggers. I saw this tag out there on Shelrosebeauty and thought I’d give it a try 🙂

1: Popular makeup product you don’t like

There’s a few on this list. Products I wanted to love but just didn’t include :

Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams- you have to layer these so much and re apply constantly. I’d rather pay slightly more and have a lipstick that stays put.

ABH Glow Kits- I know you get 4 giant pans but these just don’t work for me.

Urban Decay Naked Petite Heat- I thought this was a fairly useless palette. If you own the original Urban Decay Heat palette ( which is amazing by the way) your going to cry at how bad this one is.

2: Popular makeup product/brand that everyone else seems to hate but you love.

I don’t have any brand that I outright hate. I feel like certain brands are over rated. I like MAC and agree they do some great products ( such as their glitter pigments). However, I don’t think every single product released by them needs to be in my makeup collection. Charlotte Tilbury is another brand I want to love but just don’t. The packaging is so luxurious and draws me in every time. But so far the only product I like by them is their Colour Chameleon eye pencils. Too Faced is another brand I want to love but can’t really get on board with. I find their collections outdated and a bit childish. Fenty is the latest brand I haven’t got along with as I had a not so great reaction to their Pro Filt’r foundation.

Q3: Makeup collab you didn’t like or were not interested in.

The James Charles Morphe collaboration just didn’t peak my interest. Beauty bloggers literally went crazy for this. But the whole unleash you’re inner artist vibe isn’t for me. I love to create wearable looks and instagram makeup is too out there to pull off in my day to day life.

Q4: Popular makeup step that you never do

I don’t do my eye makeup and then foundation as everyone else seems to. I have always done my base first and then eyes and lips and so forth. Despite all the YouTube makeup gurus I’ve watched, I can’t change the habit of a lifetime.

Q5: Popular beauty influencer you don’t subscribe to/watch.

Oh there’s loads- Manny Mua, James Charles, Kaushal Beauty to name a few. Although I appreciate these are all great artists in their own right, I either don’t really use makeup the way they do or I lost interest.

Q6: Popular makeup product/brand that you don’t use/support anymore.

I used to be obsessed with a pink lip. Rewind ten years and that is all you will see on my face. I was also obsessed with Mac lipsticks and have built up quite a collection over the years . Pink does not suit me. Period. And Mac is not the be all of makeup. I still own some great Mac lipsticks in my collection ( such as Velvet Teddy, Taupe and Morange), but I’m more aware that there are other great lip brands out there.

Q7: Makeup trend that you have no interest in trying.

The Kylie Jenner bright inner corner highlight. I actually tried this one day and I looked utterly ridiculous. Maybe with a done up makeup look it could look good but that one experience has put me off.
Q8: Makeup product that was better in theory than when you used it. Either swatched better or worked better on others than on you.

Lip strobe. This was a disaster. I just looked like I had gunk on my lips. A subtle gloss such as the Chanel gloss in 206 or Urban Decay gloss in Naked works far better for me.

Let’s keep the beauty tag going 🙂

  1. I always do my eyebrows first, then base and then eyes. I don’t think there is a wrong or right way. It’s only an issue if you apply a very pigmented product and don’t clean under the eyes after. Loved reading this post. I’m not the biggest fan of Charlotte Tilbury either. Her lipsticks are nice, but not much else interests me.
