Okay, before we start to discuss the best beauty products of all the time all over the world, let’s make one thing clear: Everything on this list appears is review from and my friend for long make up experience, and if you have other thinking, please share with me in comments.

Deal? Ok.

Best Beauty Products

 I and my friends have tried all of these beauty products, even dropped a lot of cash on a few of them, only to be ultimately disappointed by them. There really is no such thing as a product that will deliver the best results for every one who uses it and I am willing to bet that a lot of the things I swear by just do not cut it for some of you. With that being said, here are a few of the products that are, In my own oppinion, totally overrated.

1 Bare Minerals

The same as every other lady on the world, I had heard so many nice things about Bare Minerals by Bare Essentials that I just had to give it a try. I am handy with makeup application, but the BeMozza associate made me look so good, I wantedshe could do my makeup every day! I was so pleased with the result that I ended up buying the original starter kit. This kit included two shades of foundation, Warmth, Mineral Veil, foundation primer, Maximum Coverage concealer brush, Flawless Application face brush and a kabuki brush. I can not wait to apply my Bare Minerals the next day! Well, I did not do such a great application job, but I knew that would come in time. My biggest issue was the itch factor! All day I was scratching my face. What an annoyance. I used it on two subsequent days and the second day I applied it with my own makeup brushes, but I still had the dreaded itch. If I can help it, I won’t stick myself with overrated #makeup items, so back to Sephora this went.

2. For Sugar Lips

One year my friends presented to me 2 pack mini of the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment by Fresh. It included Sugar Rose and the Original Sugar. I was super thrilled because I had been contemplating a purchase of the Sugar Berry, but because of the $20+ price tag, I had hesitated. Good thing! By the third time I used this, the product was already listing to the side like a miniature replica of the Tower of Pisa. The fourth #time was the death knoll, and the contents just broke in half. I kept the other mini in the fridge and it held up slightly better, but my intent was never to buy a pricey lip treatment that I couldn’t carry around with me. I did return it, hoping that just maybe this particular Sugar set just happened to be a lemon, but the replacement did the very same thing. I never bought the full size.

3. Lipstick in black honey

Oh, I wanted to love this because I think it’s the most beautiful, most becoming lipstick I have ever worn. Aside from being sexy and flattering, it makes your teeth look undeniably whiter. Unfortunately, this product disappeared from my lips in under 30 minutes. This was a huge disappointment to me. Black Honey would be my one and only lipstick if it worked. Aside from the disappearing act, I had to apply so much of this product just to get a decent color payoff. I have actually purchased this on two separate occasions, hoping I would get different results. Duh. I didn’t.

4. Lash Mascara

I will never understand what makes this mascara a cult favorite. Are you kidding? I can start a petition to rename this. How about: Great Clump Mascara or maybe Great Transfer To Under Your Eyes Mascara by Maybelline. Either of those names would be more a propos. If you are a fan of this mascara, please help me to understand why. I think the problem might be because the formula is just too wet. This leads me to an even better name: Great Smudge Mascara. I wouldn’t take a tube of this for free.

5. Eye-shadow Palette

My favorite shadows tend to come from MAC Cosmetics, but when I saw this 100 pc palette for $10 at Target, I just had to try it. I have such incredible eye-shadow brushes, and I use the E.L.F. eye-shadow primer, so I thought I could combat anything that could go wrong. But I was the one that was wrong and all 100 pieces are wrong. From the moment I put this on my eyelid, the shadow had so much fallout, that my black top was loaded with a purple mist. The shadow went on so light and the more I added the more fallout I experienced. I gave up, removed all eye-shadow from my lids, and then for the entire evening my left was eye was irritated. I did not even feel comfortable giving this away, so I just tossed it.

6. Nars Blush

What’s the deal with this? It looked like a shimmer bomb had exploded on my cheeks. This might be the most unnatural color blush I have ever seen. It just screams makeup and because of that, it’s very disconcerting to me. I look at a picture of someone wearing this blush, and I can’t see any of the other makeup she is wearing, or her pretty eyes or smile, I am that focused on this coral over-the-top shimmer. I think people are just infatuated with the name and secretly hate the blush as much as I do.

Have you tried some of these popular cosmetics? Has your experience been anything like mine, or did you love them? My problem is I get so caught up in the moment that I have to make the purchase as soon as I see the product, rather than wait until I can buy it at a store that allows returns.
