The lovely Joyce from Local Girl Foreign Land tagged me for the Unpopular Opinions Makeup Tag. Her blog is filled with the most gorgeous photography, her travel adventures and some beauty content as well!
As you probably know, I rarely ever do tags anymore, but this one inspired me! Joyce’s answers are here.
1. Popular makeup product you don’t like
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara – it is a hot mess for me, and is a holy grail mascara for so many people. My review is here.
2. Popular makeup product/brand that everyone else seems to hate but you love
Hmmm. I really can’t think of one.
3. Makeup collab you didn’t like or were not interested in
Most collabs don’t really interest me, I’m more interested in colour combinations or brands moreso than who they are collaborating with.
4. Popular makeup step that you never do
False lashes. I am terrible at applying them. So much so that I wrote a post about trying to apply false lashes following a tutorial back in 2015, haha! Link is here. (My brows looked so sparse in 2015, they’ve thickened up a bit and I’ve gotten way better at penciling them in thank goodness).
5. Popular beauty influencer you don’t subscribe to/watch
I don’t subscribe to any of the “big” beauty influencers anymore. I’d rather support smaller bloggers youtube channels.
6. Popular makeup product/brand that you don’t use/support anymore
Kat Von D. I love that it is a cruelty free and vegan brand, but the brand is problematic for me.
7. Makeup trend that you have no interest in trying
Crazy long nails and super pointy nails. I have to keep my nails short if I want to be able to type. And I’d be scared I’d lose an eye if I had the “claw” type nails (although they look really cool).
8. Makeup product that was better in theory than when you used it. Either swatched better or worked better on others than on you.
Bronzer / Contour. Most look terribly unnatural on me, even the ones for super pale people.
Thanks for the nomination Joyce! ❤
Since I rarely ever get around to doing any of the tags or awards that I’m nominated for, I don’t think I should tag anyone, but please do this one if it interests you. I’d love to read your answers!
Thanks for reading
