One of the best parts about the blogging community is being able to find people with interests similar to your own. In my time blogging, I have found many people with opinions similar to mine, especially in the beauty community. But just because we share some of the same thoughts, doesn’t mean we share all of them. These are a few of the things I dislike that most beauty bloggers would disagree with me on.
Before I begin, I want to state that no way am I attempting to criticize people who like these beauty-related things. Products work differently for different people. I’m genuinely curious to see if anyone else shares my opinions on these items.
1. Face masks
I got the idea to write this post shortly after I posted my review of Origins Out Of Trouble 10 Minute Face Mask. As I mention in that piece, I have never been a fan of face masks. I don’t find having product on my face for long periods of time enjoyable nor relaxing. Plus, masks usually take a lot of scrubbing to remove completely. I often find myself picking bits of them out of my hairline for the next several hours.
I would much rather use a quick face wash over any type of mask. I don’t like waiting around for a product to work. In my mind, the faster, the better.
2. Acrylic nails
Acrylic nails are stunning and I’m constantly amazed by the designs that I see bloggers create, but I cannot stand wearing them. The first time that I applied acrylics was also the last time I applied acrylics. I put one nail on and immediately felt like my finger was being suffocated. I love looking at pictures of other peoples’ acrylic nails, but I certainly don’t want them on myself.
3. Face primer
I have only ever used one face primer that I’ve liked (the IPKN Radiant Cream Primer). It could be that I’ve just tried bad primers, but I think that I dislike the consistency of them in general. I find face primers to be incredibly slippery and oily. They actually seem to make my makeup crease easier.
4. Hot coffee
This opinion isn’t completely restricted to beauty, but since so many beauty bloggers love coffee, I thought that I would include it. I strongly prefer iced coffee to hot coffee. Even in the winter, you’ll find me ordering cold drinks.
What are some unpopular beauty-related opinions of your own?
