Hi
I’m always have a long wish list of products that I want to try.

Would love to know which super hyped or cult products have you tried that were just a complete disappointment?

I found the Erin Bigg foundation luminous foundation a complete disappointment - wasn’t luminous, seemed to disappear by the end of the day and left my skin dry. Whereas the Designer Brand foundation for $20 was wonderful!

The Laura Mercier translucent powder. Don’t get me wrong it’s a beautiful finely milled setting powder. But does exactly the same as my $10 cheapo setting powders…and it’s $60
Thanks but I will stick to the cheap one.

I’ve read some great reviews for the DB foundation! Keen to try it out!


#5

Which cheaper ones would you recommend?!


#6

My current favourite is the Savvy translucent powder and it’s $7.99 from Priceline, I look airbrushed and it keeps me matte all day. But I also love the e.l.f HD powder which is like $11 from Kmart and the Australis ready set go finishing powder. I just use so much of the product that I just cant see the point in paying top dollar when there is an cheaper dupe.

Ahhh I had my make-up done for a photoshoot and the make-up artist raved about the e.l.f powder too! It’s hard to get a hold off at my local Kmart, its always sold out!

@hayleypan The e.l.f HD powder is available on the Adore site!


#9

I’ll have to keep that in mind when I finish my current finishing powder!!


#10

I’m a huge fan of that ELF HD powder it looks beautiful on

Hey Hayley!!

So unfortunately I am one to jump onto the brainwashed by yt and pinterest train. Here are some products which my sheepmind bought:

  • ABH Moonchild glow palette: There is actually nothing wrong with this palette, only the fact that the colours are not usable for an everyday look… unless you want a purple and blue unicorn glow. I bought this without really thinking about “will i ever use this”. I guess I bought it because everyone typed it up, also I found the actual formula a little more powdery then other highlighters.

  • Maybelline Fit Me Foundation: I bought the poreless formula because the shop I was buying them at did not sell light enough shades of the dewy formula. Everyone seemed to love this product online so I was crazy excited to use it. The first day I tried it without a primer (to see what it would be like) IT WAS SO CAKEY within a few hours!! I had used concealers underneath it and did set it but it looked horrible. So I tried it again with a rimmel primer and it was still so disgusting, all of my pores looked huge and my undereye fine lines were accentuated to the max! I was so upset. {However I did eventually find Maybellines Age Rewind primer which worked very well with it, my fine lines & pores were lessened and the skin looked smooth.}

  • Witchazel Toner: I cannot remember the exact brand this was, but I purchased it from Chemist Warehouse. It literally did NOTHING for my skin. After using the entire bottle my skin looked the exact same as when I started. It was a total waste of money. I only bought it because everyone on pinterest was saying how great it was.

After these mistakes I am now doing my best to thoroughly research and test products before purchasing, because it really sucks to be disappointed.

I have similar thoughts on all the ABH highlighters! They look great for photos on Instagram, but aren’t really what you would want for everyday! Although the ABH Modern Renaissance palette I think is definitely worth the hype. The colours are so versatile and are really pigmented and buttery so a little goes a long way!

One of my Garnier gel toners has Witchazel and I haven’t any difference too. I was thinking of getting just a Witchazel toner but now I’m kinda put off. However my Body shop one works pretty well !

I bought the witch hazel toner mainly because it was so affordable, it was T.N Dickinson’s. I’ve been using the Neutrogena Pore Refining Toner and wow after a few weeks I definitely started seeing a difference in my pore size.

I just purchased Tarte’s rainforest of the sea skin twinkle palette the other day, I will see how this highlighting palette goes and let everyone know! It looks soooo pretty :heart_eyes:
