Okay, ladies & gents, it’s time to dish at our weekly open post. Pour the coffee, pull out the raspberry cheesecake, we’ll be here for awhile.
In our journeys as beauty connoisseurs it is a given we will encounter products that just don’t work out for us. But what if they’re products that everyone else is raving about? It happens. I have several that I just really, really wish would have been awesome for me, but they just weren’t. My top three are as follows -
1. Maybelline Great Lash Mascara – We all know how this one goes: Great Lash, why can’t you let my lashes be great?!?! Works amazingly for many, voted best of on every list, but is a true lash repellant on my lashes. Insane!
2. Rosebud Lip Salve – Oh, how I truly wanted this highly touted and beautifully scented lip balm to work and be my all-time favorite thing! But then there’s the fact that my lips blister like no tomorrow when this is applied. Oh, so sad.
3. Bare Escentuals Mineral Foundation – It’s funny how mineral makeup has changed since this was introduced on the makeup market. I wanted to jump right in and have it be the best foundation I’d ever tried, but it just made me look like the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz. True story.
What are some of your makeup misses?
