Products Loved By Other People That I Hate

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder, Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector, Glossier Haloscope, Milk Makeup Dewy Highlighter, Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation Review, MILK MAKEUP UK LAUNCH

Well, that sounded harsh but not every product will have a universal appeal and there are a few products that work well for other people that just don't work so well for me. Just a disclaimer that I have nothing against these brands or the people that love these products. 

This is the cult setting powder that literally everyone uses. For me, I was never really wowed by the powder as I feel that it can make me look slightly cakey. My prefered one is Beauty Bakerie Flour Setting Powder in Translucent. It's about £10 cheaper and it makes my face looks flawless for hours. 

I was sucked in by marketing and recommendations from other people when I purchased this. A lot of people love it as it supposed to eradicate dark undereye and for that, I have to agree. It does help brighten the dark circles but my issue with it is that it doesn't layer well with any of my concealers and the texture is too sticky to use on its own. 

I might have to come to terms with the fact that stick highlighters are just not for me! I don't think that it does much for my skin, whenever I use it I just don't get that glow that I am looking for. I would say that it's nice to use on a no-makeup makeup day. It's definitely something that I can live without. 

Did you know that MILK MAKEUP will be launching in the UK on the 28th of January, via Cult Beauty? I am looking forward to try other products from the range but this one just doesn't work for me but I think I might be the issue here but I just don't think that I like stick highlighters as I am someone who loves a more blinding glow. I guess you can use it underneath other powder highlights or as a body highlighter. I just don't find myself reaching for it very often. Also, I the stick is way too bulky for me to carry it around.

I really tried to love this foundation but I just don't see the hype, sorry. I find that the finish of the foundation makes me look sickly. It transfers like crazy and it creases around my smile lines. It's a no for me!

  1. I am glad it isn’t just me who really does like the Chanel Vitalumiere Foundation, I didn’t like how it sat in my skin at all x

  2. I've never tried anything from Milk before but I'll definitely avoid the highlighter stick. I love the ArtDeco Luminous Stick but it's not a blinding glow so i'm not sure you'd love it haha xxx
