I'm just not that into you...4 products I'm not interested in

As much as I love beauty products and as much as I love trying new things, there are some products (new and not so new) that just leave me completely cold, despite many people talking and raving about them.


Benefit They're Real push-up Liner

Some people love it, most (honest) people don't like it or are on the fence. It just looks too fiddly, too gimmicky and quite frankly way too expensive to even consider it.


Oribe Dry texture spray thingy

The 'big' bloggers swear by it to add some volume/texture to their hair. It doesn't seem to be all that special. The full size of this will set you back £39! For a spray? Nah, I don't think so.

Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette

I love neutrals and I love palettes so this should have my name written  all over it. I saw it in Boots and it didn't do much for me, the colours are pretty but I felt I didn't need them. Maybe I'm growing up??

Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser

I had a sample of this and it left me feeling very underwhelmed. A lot of people rave about this product and the oil free version, I do struggle to understand why.



In a way, that's the really interesting part of this make-up/ beauty business. Products will perform differently for different people. What has left you cold of late?

  1. LOL I want to try the Oribe. It's really pricey though. And yeah, it bugs me that a certain circle of people are suddenly talking about it like they discovered it when it's been around for ages.

    I also actually really like the LM TM! The oil free version, that is. ;)

    I like everything lately. It's getting to be a problem, lol.

  3. Hahahaha, yup there's a lot of things I'm not interested in too! Most eye palettes actually. Old me would have gotten all of them too, but now I look at them and think meh.

  5. Ahh see I love my Chocolate Bar palette, use it all the time but I can see how some may be a bit 'meh' if they think they have too many similar shades (I also have too many, but still want more lol) Oribe is so damn pricy but I still want to try it, sigh

    1. I think it's also because I'm into cooler tones at the moment!

  8. J'ai eu la même réaction que toi pour la palette Chocolate Bar! J'aime mieux l'emballage que les teintes à l'intérieur ahah!
