Products Not Worth the Hype #1


Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre
I've been testing this out for about a month now, and I wanted to love it so badly. My skin was so dry and dehydrated from this winter, and I really wanted to find a new moisturizer. I saw this and read so many amazing reviews about it. This moisturizer claims to be a miracle worker, it also acts as a makeup remover, face mask, and primer. I really liked the scent and the consistency of the cream, but it did not provide enough moisture for me at all. It was pretty inexpensive and it comes with a lot of product, but I think this is definitely more for people with normal skin.

Too Faced Better Than False Lashes
This came with a set that I bought from Sephora last Christmas, but I only recently tried it. I was so confused about the little lash primer. It looks like cotton stuck on a mascara brush. I followed the instructions, put the little fibers on the lashes first and then use the big mascara second. It did nothing. 

Benefit They're Real Mascara
Oh boy. Where should I start with this one? So, I have stick straight Asian lashes. I always use an eyelash curler (love my trusty Shu Uemura one) first. I curled my lashes like normal, swiped one coat of this stuff on, and it straightened my lashes back out. What?! I don't even understand. Maybe the formula was too wet, but I definitely do not see why people love this so much. I'm glad I didn't buy the big version and got to try it first.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
I do not hate this product, but it is seriously not as amazing as everyone says it is. One thing I do have to give is that it lasts forever. I've had this primer for a long time, and there still seems to have lots of product in there. I admit that my lids are super duper oily and that may be why it doesn't work as well on me. The consistency is nice and it dries to a matte base and feels very light. It's better than not using primer at all, so I will keep using this until I get my hands on something else.

I hope I didn't offend anybody by bashing on one of their favorite products!
