Round two of Five for Five today! Sadly, these are the products that were a big old miss by me. Just to clarify, these products are not the worst of the worst. In fact, some people probably rave about them. They just are not my favorite… for a few different reasons. I have reasons, I promise. Let’s jump into it.
Suave Professionals Touchable Finish Hairspray
The one thing I did enjoy about this hairspray is that it didn’t make the list because it was a sticky, wet, mess. It was actually the opposite, it kind of does a whole lot of nothing. But for under $3.. I’ll take the loss.
L’Oreal True Match Lumi Foundation
Okay, probably gonna have a lot of – SAY WHATS – for this one because everyone seemed to rave about this foundation as some drugstore holy grail. It’s alright, but I honestly don’t understand the hype. It leaves a “your skin but better” finish in that it’s not cake-y or matte. It is verrrry dewy/oily though so unless you’re Gisele Bundchen and can just pull that off, you’re gonna need a good powder. I’ll continue to use it, but I probably won’t re-purchase.
Victoria’s Secret Pro Airbrush FX Face Primer
Not that I had super high expectations for this considering I got it in a kit during the semi-annual for under $8, but I was still annoyed with it. I used it in conjunction with the above mentioned foundation for at least a month, but I’ve since given up. I started using the foundation on its own recently and I realized this primer was actually the cause for the oily mid-day mess! It has a weird consistency and makes my face feel real gross after an hour of wear. No thanks.
Simple Protecting Light Moisturizer
This product is in the same category as the Suave hairspray. Not terrible, but I wouldn’t miss it if Simple suddenly decided to forget about making it altogether. I have yet to find a moisturizer I actually like and am continually on the search. Suggestions are welcome!
MAC Bronzing Powder in Golden
And the biggest let down of all. Again, it’s not that bad.. I just expected more. I had been using a Victoria’s Secret bronzer that I really liked but I ran out of, and I wanted to try something new. And it was MAC sooo.. ya know. It’s a decent bronzer, a pretty color if you’re as pale as I am, but it’s not my VS bronzer, man. I liked the dark, matte pay-off of the VS, whereas the MAC is more sheered out with a slight sheen.
So those are the products I’ve been loving/leaving lately. Have you tried anything amazing lately worth sharing? Anything worth leaving behind?
