Beauty Products NOT Worth The Hype

Beauty Products NOT Worth The Hype
Being a makeup enthusiast has it's benefits. You can express yourself through the art of makeup, watch others express themselves, learn different techniques of application, improve your skills with the art, but also, be exposed to hundreds of thousands of brands/products. That may be good, but at the same time it could also be so bad. Bad in the sense that you constantly feel the need to buy into every product that is getting hype in the community. I fall guilty to this and that's the reason for this post. Here are a few items that I feel were too overhyped to the point that they underperformed in my eyes:

MAC Lipstick Lookbook
When I was new to makeup and wasn't familiar with all the products available, MAC lipsticks were my go-to. There was a point in time when I went crazy & picked up a bunch of their lipsticks; that's pretty much how my collection grew.

BITE Beauty Does Lip Pencils


BITE Beauty is one of those brands that have never let me down. Their Matte Creme Lip Crayons & Amuse Bouche Lipsticks are some of my favourites from the brand.

Pinterest Beauty Hacks | Tried & Tested
Every now and then I like to spend a couple few hours on Pinterest. You can find so many things on there. Some of my favourites have to be the endless amount of jaw-dropping room inspos and the bunches of DIYs that I always pin to do later on (but never actually get around to doing). And then you have numerous pins of beauty hacks. Every time I come across them, I'm automatically intrigued and I wonder if they actually work. I'm finally putting an end to my curiousity (and maybe some of yours) and testing them out for myself.

The Alchemist Holographic Palette
Ever since the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glowkit in Moonchild came out, I've been dying to get my hands on it. Unfortunately for me, it wasn't available on Sephora's website and I wasn't about to pay a fortune from ordering it off ABH directly. So when I found out that Kat Von D was coming out with the Alchemist Holographic Palette, I made it a goal to pick it up the second it was available on Sephora..and that I did. I've been trying these out for a while now and I'm ready to share my thoughts..
