Are These Beauty Products A Good Beauty Buy or a Beauty Bust?
By: Wanna’s World
Very often I come across hundreds, if not thousands of beauty products that are widely suggested from Twitter Beauty gurus to the average Beauty Vlogger. Everyday I’m bombarded with several tutorials and ads about the ‘perfect’ beauty product and me being the curious individual that I am (and after a bit of research) I end up buying the products to see if it’s a bust or a good buy. However, after the purchase, various products end up never being used or don’t have the same effect on me as it did with others which leads me to believe it’s overhyped and simply not worth the money. So instead of making you suffer like I have repeatedly, I compiled a short list to tell you about some products that simply didn’t work for me (keyword: me) and I also provided the details of the products that I found to be the most bang for your buck.
1. Sacha Cosmetics – Buttercup Powder (Good Beauty Buy)
When it comes to this product in particular, I find this to be most helpful for my skin. A number of beauty vloggers on YouTube recommend this and I for one have to co-sign this product. This setting powder does absolute wonders for me and it's a must in my daily beauty routine. For only $20, this product is a great addition to any beauty bag. The BUTTERCUP powder is great for medium to dark skin tones and the BUTTERCUP LIGHT is for light to medium skin tones. Also ladies, no flashback in photos, which is a big win for me.
2. Laura Mercier – Translucent Loose Setting Powder (Good Beauty Buy)
This product in particular, in particular is often raved about online from makeup beginners to makeup pros. I first stumbled onto this while cruising a Twitter thread for suggestions and I haven't looked back since. The brand provides a wide range of coverage and is offered for light to the deepest skin tones. While it may go over your budget a bit (over $40), I do think it's worth the hype.
3. Colourpop – Matte Liquid Lipsticks (Beauty Bust)
Before you shake your head at me, understand that I am a Colourpop advocate and love this company. I often write about how great the offerings are and absolutely love the price BUT I will say that Colourpop's Matte Liquid Lipsticks need to change the formula. After long wear it provides an uncomfortable feeling on my lips that I just want to rid of. So while I still encourage you to buy, make sure you apply some lip balm before putting on this product to guarantee maximum results.
4. Make Up For Ever – Pro Finish Multi-Use Powder Foundation (Beauty Bust)
I first heard of this company through a friend of mine who kept ranting about how great Make Up For Ever is and I gave into the hype and tried it for myself. While she loves what it does for her skin, I found it to look very cakey on me and leave an undesirable flashback. While I love my powders and prefer them over liquid foundations most times, I couldn't get into this product. However, if you're curious, try it for $46.
5. Anastasia Beverly Hills – DIPBROW Pomade (Good Beauty Buy)
I think this product is pretty much common knowledge that it's a great beauty buy but I just had to add it to the list to inform those who don't know of it magic yet. ABH DIPBROW Pomade will made your eyebrows the star attraction and rightfully so. For under $30, it will not fail you and have you regretting that you used any other product for your brows in the past. If you don't have it, get it girls!
