Hello all, I hope you are all having a great day. I’m a day late but I wanted to show you my beauty favorites and some of my not so favorites. Unfortunately with the tight budget I am on, I can’t afford to go buying new products all the time, so there isn’t too many, please bare with me.
I’ll start with my favorites. I got this for Christmas, and I have been loving it and it is the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Gold Palette. I kinda wish there were more matte shades in it but that’s okay. These metallic shimmery shades are so pigmented and they last throughout the day, especially when you wet them. I found a technique for wetting shadows and that is to grab a flat shader brush, dip it into the shade of your choosing and then spray it with a setting spray and apply, its like magic.
Speaking of setting sprays, even though it isn’t technically a setting spray, but I use it as a setting spray and that is the Mario Badescu Facial Spray. It just smells so good, it makes my skin feel hydrated and it actually holds my makeup in place.
Alright now, I’m going to mention some products that I absolutely just hated in the month of January. The first one is this eyeliner from Wet N Wild, I found it just horrible. I always wear waterproof makeup for my eyes, because you never know when you’re going to have a bad day and I’d rather be safe than sorry. This really stays on, which is great, but it is super difficult to get off, like you really have to work to get it off. Also, I found it a bit runny, I had to be careful when applying it near the inner corner of my eye because it would run into the lower lash line and sting my eyes. I just really didn’t like this product.
The next product I could not stand were these makeup removing wipes from Pixi. As you all know, I’m trying to make the transition to go cruelty free, and even though I love the Neutrogena makeup removing wipes, they are not cruelty free, so I have been on the hunt for a dupe. I was at Target one night and decided to pick up these wipes from Pixi… Big mistake. First off, they’re really thin, they are the exact same quality as the kind you can find from the Dollar Tree. The worst part is that these wipes were 10 dollars. So that’s 10 times the price as the dollar tree for the same quality, if not worse. Also with these wipes, some parts were moist, and some were dry, these wipes dry super fast once they’re out of their package, not to mention they are horrible at removing makeup. You have to really work to get all of the makeup off. I absolutely hated these and I will never purchase these again.
The next product I hated was this Sure Scent . I picked it up from the Dollar Tree so I didn’t have too many high expectations but it didn’t work at all for me. My dog spends a lot of time in my bedroom, so there’s always an odor. So I saw this and thought it could help. It didn’t help at all, and you can’t even smell the scent unless you are right next to it. I guess I’ll have to stick to my wallflowers.
That is it for my January Favorites and Hate Its. Sorry if I got a little negative with the hate its, these products really just did not work for me and I wanted to share it with you all. I hope you all have a wonderful day. Thank you so much for reading!
