Inspired by Cami Loves Kiwi’s recent video and the hype that surrounded MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade (review here), I’ve gathered together a few products that I feel like are overhyped. It’s a good mix of drugstore and higher end products.
Here is a summary, but I go more in-depth in the video:
— Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains (review): Love these, hate the stains they leave behind. Regardless of the shade, my lips turn a more orange-y color.
— L’Oreal Lucent Magique Light Touch-Up Pen: Nothing special.
— L’Oreal Shine Caresse & YSL Glossy Stain (comparative review): Generally a so-so formula. I don’t get the fuss.
— YSL Rouge Volupté Shine (review): Was originally a fan of the formula, but when I forgot to bring a tube for reapplication and my lips dried up like a shriveled prune. It’s not bad, but it’s not all that.
— Sara Happ The Lip Slip & The Lip Scrub: Great products, but too expensive.
— NARS Blush in Orgasm: I don’t think it’s flattering for all skintones, but otherwise, it is an OK blush that is excellent quality.
— MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade (review): It’s a decent highlighter, but it’s really nothing special, especially with the insane hype and mystery~ around it.
So, that’s it! What overhyped products have you tried recently? Do share!
