I’m sure you beauty enthusiasts understand that some products you love and others you just don’t. No matter how many positive reviews you’ve read, or hype a product has, sometimes you just have to told up your hands and say “this product is just not me.”
Below are five products that I’ve tried and that’ve failed. As I was writing this post I decided I’m going to make one last effort to give these products a go, apart from the hair dye, in the next few weeks, so make sure you watch out to see how they went!
Fake Tan // Who doesn’t love having a summer glow all year long? I would love to have a tan, but sadly my ginger genes just won’t allow it, and since I’m naturally whiter than white I don’t suit false tan at all. Trust me I’ve tried. I once used a full bottle of Fake Bake spray tan to cover every inch of my whiteness and I loved it. I felt so confident and sexy, and then I looked at the photos the next day and I was as orange as a pumpkin. I’ve tried instant, gradual and even a professional spray tan and I just look wrong with a tan, maybe it clashes with my hair? Does anyone else have this problem? Any false tan recommendations I should try?
Face Primer // I’m still 50/50 on whether I should give this a product a try. I’ve read so many blogs ranting that a primer is in their top five products, but I don’t get it. I thought moisturiser was kind of a primer? What are your thoughts? Am I missing out?
Hair Dye // Dying my hair is just something that has never crossed my mind. To be honest even if I wanted to, nothing covers ginger hair and even if it does, it’s not for long. While I am a little envious that some of you can randomly transform your hair with pastel colours, or dip-dye, I guess for it me it means I never have to worry about my roots or how long it’s going to take in the hairdressers.
False Eyelashes // I’m lucky to have been blessed with naturally long lashes, so I can get away with out wearing false ones. However, I see girls wearing them and I think they just finish an eye-look off perfectly. I keep meaning to try them out, but I’m terrified of sticking the glue to my lashes and then ripping them out. Any anyone suggest a pair I should try? Or, have you got a ‘how to’ guide?
Bronzer // I think this goes back to the whole ‘I don’t suit being tanned’ issue. I have friends who absolutely love bronzer, like it’s their staple piece of make up. I use bronzer to contour, but that’s about it. I mean, how do you apply bronzer? Would I only use it when wearing false tan?
Is there any beauty products that you just aren’t you? Can you suggest any products above that I should give a go? Let me know your thoughts!
