i would say i have a little problem when it comes to beauty products. i love trying new products in hopes of finding that one little blush or hairspray that makes me go all how-did-i-ever-live-without-this for months.
with that said, i've found some duds recently and feel the need to share with a sister, so you don't wind up disappointed too! a lot of products that i pick up are done so per recommendation, but sometimes i find myself wandering through the beauty aisle picking up unnecessary goodies to try. it happens, right? :)
one of my fav bloggers recently posted about maybelline babylips and how wonderful it is. since said blogger has never led me astray and i was in the market for a new lip product, a babylips found its way into my cart with no coaxing. it's basically a tinted chapstick, which was kind of nice for an i'm-not-trying-to-look-done-up look, but the silky, buttery feeling that was left on my lips wore off within maybe 30 minutes. and then my lips felt more chapped than pre-babylips. kind of sad. and the color didn't last longer than 30 minutes either! womp womp.
moving on... eyelid primer is one of my makeup bag must-haves for sure. as in, if you don't currently use a primer on your lids, you are straight crazy! just trust me, ok? anyways, i have been a bare minerals primer girl for years, but at $18 a pop, it's not exactly cheap. worth it, but not cheap! a friend of mine recommended the elf eyelid primer and the $1 price tag was too tempting not to give it a shot. maybe i'm just spoiled with my bare minerals, but i hate the coverage of the elf primer (it's more white in color and goes on a little more thick than i prefer. plus, it isn't as forgiving because of the stronger pigment). i would've been over the stinkin moon if this was a keeper, but it's not quite up to my par!
thankfully, I feel like I've had more winners than duds lately, so I'll be posting about all my good finds soon!!
