For the most part, I talk about things that I love here on the blog. But sometimes it’s fun to break from personal convention and chat about things that I hate. And that’s exactly what I will be doing today.
Here are three beauty-related products that I just can’t stand, as well as my defense against them:
I know I’ve mentioned my hatred for face primer several times in the past, but if I was going to write a post about beauty items I just simply CANNOT get into, I had to include it. To me, there is nothing worse than the consistency of face primer. It’s too slick and too greasy for my liking. But my biggest problem with face primer is that I’ve really never felt like it has made a difference in the way my makeup sits on my face.
I will admit that recently I’ve come around to products that work as both a primer and a moisturizer. I’ve been using the Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer, which is a two-in-one primer and moisturizer, and I have no complaints. The consistency is more like a moisturizer than a primer, which is probably the reason why.
Perfumes (for the most part)
The appearance of perfume on this list is mostly due to the fact that I have extreme sensitivity when it comes to fragrances, which up until a few months ago, I didn’t realize was, like, an actual thing. For as long as I can remember, I’ve exhibited allergy symptoms when in the presence of strong perfumes. Whenever I’d walk through the fragrance section of a department store, I would start sneezing and developing a headache. Yet for some reason, it never occurred to me to think ‘hey, I might be allergic to this.’ Hindsight is 20/20, I guess.
ANYWAY, the point is that I’m not a fan of perfume. Fragrances are nice and everything, but as far as I am concerned, the cons are far greater than the pros. I would rather not sneeze all day just so I can wear a perfume.
I don’t totally hate blush. I just never use it. So, whenever I clean out my makeup collection, and I find an old rouge that I’ve purchased and never worn, I get annoyed with both it and myself. Another reason I have a difficult time liking blush is that it is IMPOSSIBLE to apply nicely. Every time I’ve ever used blush in my life, I’ve ended up looking like I have a horrible sunburn. I don’t understand blush, and I doubt I ever will.
Those are just a few of the beauty products I could do without. I would love to hear about the items you dislike, and I am curious to see if we have any similarities!
