As promised, in today’s blog I am going to be talking about 5 high end makeup products that are not worth the money. Whether you have makeup on your Christmas list or have decided to buy makeup for someone as a gift, these 5 products are not worth your money. There are plenty of other high end and affordable makeup products that I think are better.
URBAN DECAY NAKED PALETTE (54$)
I’m fully aware that when this palette came out EVERYONE wanted it (including me). I have owned the Naked and Naked 2 Palette and neither of them are worth the money. I don’t think that they are horrible eyeshadow pallets, but for the price they are just not that good. I used them and loved them for a while, but eventually they just sat in my makeup collection. In hind sight they were not worth the money because I didn’t use every color (who really uses every color in a palette) and I don’t think the eyeshadows were the best. I will say the new Naked Heat Palette looks beautiful, but I don’t plan on purchasing it.
NARS BRONZING POWDER (40$)
Again, I am speaking about a specific shade, Laguna. For many years I used and loved this bronzer but for the price it’s not worth it. There isn’t really anything special enough about it to justify spending 40 dollars. I find that I hardly use it.
M.A.C STUDIO FIX FLUID SPF 15 FOUNDATION (29$)
I recently purchased this foundation and I really liked it. I was using the shade NC 10. The reason I stopped wearing this foundation is because it made my skin break out. I was really hoping that it wouldn’t, but unfortunately it did. For this reason I don’t think this is worth the money.
KIKO MILANO SKIN TRAINER CC BLUR (22$)
Kiko Milano is an Italian makeup brand that is priced in between affordable and high end. My sister purchased this for me while in italy (which was very kind). Unfortunately, I don’t like it. This product smells like chemicals and I didn’t think it was anything special.
M.A.C MATTE LIPSTICK (17.50$)
Now, I am not saying that all M.A.C Matte Lipsticks are not worth the money. The specific shade I don’t find worth the money is Diva. I’ll be honest, I have used this lipstick for years and the color is beautiful BUT once you apply it to your lips the color eventually bleeds out. I personally prefer a lipstick that stays in place. I’m sure using a lip liner would help/solve the problem, but that requires spending more money. In that case, you might as well purchase a different lipstick in a similar shade that won’t bleed. I have another M.A.C Matte Lipstick in the shade Please Me, that I don’t like either (I am not sure if it also bleeds). These two shades specifically I wouldn’t spend your money on.
P.S. These are makeup products I personally don’t think are worth the money. That doesn’t mean that they are not good. I think for the amount of money these makeup products cost, they just aren’t the best.
