Unpopular Opinions Makeup Tag

Hello, hello!

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

abrashattitude.com have a beautiful day!

  1. This post is so funny, I agree with almost everything! Lol I have however finally after years and years of trying learned to use fake lashes and love them now (for going out only though)

      1. I think one of the keys is picking the right lashes and then making sure the glue dries slightly before you put it on & also not being nervous lol which is hard bc your makeups done so you don’t want to mess up, but if you’re nervous it’s easier to mess up 😅

  2. Wahaha we do think alike~~ that nail trend is really madness *LOL* Thank you so much for doing this xox big hugs. Come to think about it, I have never bought anything from Kat Von D. Her packaging really puts me off. I wonder who else will be doing this one 😀 Can’t wait to see the others.

  3. So fun to read!
    I’ve never done false lashes. Just the thought of having this stuff around my eyes – no thanks!
    And super long and pointy nails? Yikes! I’ve had longish nails in the past, and I might let them grow a bit longer again in the future – but those stiletto talons scare me!

  4. Totally agree with you on the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara – the formula is SO DRY. I can’t get the product to deposit onto my lashes.

    Ditto on the false lashes. I actually think I am allergic to the lash glue because my eyes get super irritated every time I’ve had them professionally applied.

    People love to hate on MAC but I’m still a devoted customer! Maybe it’s nostalgia but I find their products work well for me.

    Did you hear that Kat Von D sold her line to Kendo (Sephora) which already rebranded as KVD Vegan Beauty. Do you think you’ll buy from that brand again given that news?
