*Holy Crap (HC)* List

Recommended Posts

My offenders list:

 

--Organix.  Yuck, yuck yuck on all fronts.  None of the versions have been good for me.

--Great Lash Mascaras.  I bought the hype a couple times and have never been a fan.  If I needed brow gel I might try the clear one though...

--Fresh lip balms.  Meh.  I think they taste weird.  I usually don't ever taste my balms, but Fresh always gets in my mouth because it's so emollient.

--Lush Snow Fairy.  I wanted to like it, but it smells juvenile to me.

-- Benefit stains in the nail polish type bottles.  They don't work on my lips and for cheeks they dry down too fast before I can really work with them.

--Benefit "They're Real".  It was just a goopy, clumped mess for me.

--NYX jumbo pencils.  They must have sponsored some of the gurus back in the day.  I admit I bought the hype, but they just crease and are greasy on me.

--Ole Henrickson as a brand.  I'm just not fan.

--Philosophy Hope in a Jar.  It burned and stung my eyes badly.

--Boots Botanicals eye makeup remover.  It's greasy and I can't wait to finish it.  On the up side, the bottle magically refills itself!

--Bath and Body Works as a whole.  

--Clinique Lotion.  It wasn't dramatically different for me and stung my skin.

--Bare Minerals.  I'm allergic to their powders.  My face burned and sloughed after a few days of use.

 

I happen to get on well with the Tom's of Maine deodorant, but my boyfriend got a chemical burn from it and had to go to the dermatologist.  He was using the apricot version at the time.

I love my trusty yet plain Ardell glue. I haven't found anything that matches up to it yet.

I've just recently gotten into false lashes. I was always afraid to wear them because I feared they would fall off. *Me standing outside with my falsie flapping in the wind* ...so scary haha but, I have been loving the Duo glue. I use the white one that dries clear but they also have one that dries black. Not sure if that's the brand you were thinking of but it's a suggestion! :)

Duo glue is awesome! It comes in clear and black. I don't wear falsies often, but when I do I use Duo glue.

One of those brands of lash glue and latex and I'm allergic to latex.  I have to be very careful and read labels before I use lash glue.

I forgot to say lavanila lip shine. It's oil... in a tube... for your lips yay? It's so gross the feel of oil on your lips and just pours out of the tube it's disgusting. I'm using it at night right now trying to get some use out of it but i might just chuck it.

1.Wet n' Wild eyeliners always smudge and leave me with a messy accidental smoky eye by the end of the day. At first I thought that perhaps it was because they were cheap eyeliners, but I recently tried the Essence Kajal pencil which is around the same price and it works very nicely.

 

2.Revlon Photoready powerarrow-10x10.png... I looked like a dried up mummy with this stuff on. Very cakey and dry! I don't recommend it to anyone!

 

 

3. Hard Candy Glamoflauge.... I know a lot of people rave about this, but my first experience right off the bat was bad. I was interested in it once upon a time when I was suffering from cystic acne, so I went to Wal-Mart to check it out. One of them just happened to be opened already, so I figured I'd sneak a swatch. When I squeezed it, a huge gush of oil squirted out. I'd guess it was mineral oil. Do NOT want on mah face!

- elf cream eyeliner. It dried out so quickly and was very hard to apply. - elf liquid eyeliner. Bad pigmentation, streaky. - rimmel eye shadows - I could NOT get these to show up on my eyes. I stick with WnW when it comes to drugstore shadows now. - NARS blush - pre 2013 formula broke me out. I love many many products from nars and will buy a new blush when I find a color I like in the new formula :) - mac shroom e/s - not pigmented enough to show up on my fair skin without applying multiple layers

Glamorable's Anastasia actually commented earlier in this thread :) haha, somewhere @OiiO, isn't that right, love? I'll be darned if I can find your post though! (I'm obviously quite blind tonight, I swore I saw a post just the other day...). I believe she got the inspiration from this thread! :D I must say, this thread is one of the best I've seen recently...it's so much fun to pour through!

L'Oreal & Lancome mascaras.  I know they get a lot of love from people, but they make my eyes burn and water.  And the smell!  OMG they smell so strong.

 

NYX Cream Blushes.  I loved the color but they are soooo greasy and made me break out like crazy.

Yeppers-peppers, I am here! :) I thought it would be a fun post to make so I sourced some of my favorite picks from MUT and MUA.

Thanks for the heads up, Michaela, I probably would've missed the mention <3

Hi leslieee, I'm the editor of Glamorable :) I figured this was a great topic to write about, and I can definitely agree with many of these picks. Sometimes I think people who put these products on the market never even tried any of them :eusa_wall:

Actually I'm not affiliated with glamorable. I'm new on this site and just thought of this topic to bring up after seeing it in a random blog. It's interesting how the list is repeated though and probably is testament to what is really crap out there

Loving this thread :) Eos Lip Balm: I know almost everyone likes this but for me it makes my lips dry and flakey. It's such a shame because they come in such yummy scents but I have now tossed 3 of them for having an effect opposite of what I bought them for. Tarte Lipsurgence: I know, I know, I am alone in the dislike Tarte Lipsurgence corner. I wanted to love these but they dry out my lips so incredibly much that it takes days for me to recover from using one. Never again I say! Josie Maran Makeup Remover Wipes: Let me start by saying I love all Josie Maran products... Except these wipes. They just plain do not work. They might provide a cleanse if you are not already wearing makeup, but if you are wearing makeup they will do nothing go remove it.

You're not alone here. I buy them because they are so cute, but they do very little for my lips. I do like them underneath lipsticks/stains though.

I feel the same way about these items! I think the Lipsurgence 8 piece set is one of my more regrettable purchase of 2013!

I was buying them because they are so cute too! Their packaging and neat scents really suckered me in (Summerfruit just sounded perfect). I wanted to like them so ended up trying 3 different scents, but I ultimately gave up and went back to my classy Chapstick ;)

Yes, this. The Tarte Lipsurgence 5 piece set was my most regrettable purchase of 2011 LOL.

I don't care for the Tarte lipsurgences either.  In fact, any lippie with peppermint in it is on my bad list.  Peppermint, menthol, or anything that causes a "cooling" sensation makes my lips turn bright red, dry out, peel and just hurt.  After years of trying to make things like that work for me, I've finally gotten smart and just avoid them all now.

I just remembered a product to add to my HC list.

Pacifica Purify Coconut Cleansing wipes are the worst wipes I've ever used. They burned especially around the eyes! I didn't even finish the whole pack and that's rare for me. I wanted to like them so bad, but I just couldn't take the burn.

I have one to add to the list of products that burn. I did follow directions but had a reaction to it.

It's not the peppermint that bothers me, it's the fact that the colors don't show up on me or they hardly last!

Aw. I love them! I'd try to offer take them off of your hands but my trade list is currently pretty nonexistent!

@yousoldtheworld I love them too! I love the Tarte Matte lip tints the most, which surprised me.

 

 

As for the holy crap it's bad list:

 

Has anyone mentioned the J Cat glitter palette?  Worst beauty product I have ever owned. 

 

Another product I find overrated is Glamglow. Outrageous price with little result.

    • Hi,  I have pale skin and freckles and find it hard to figure out which type of concealer and/or foundation I should use. On top of that, I blush quite easily and would feel more comfortable if it didn't show through my makeup. That would make me feel a lot more confident. Any advice? Thanks!! Kristen
    • Thank you❤And I like grey too. It's so mysterious!
    • Your skincare routine should involve the following  1. CLEANSE- Thats the main part of any routine. Cleanse two times a day-once in morning and other in evening. 2. MOISTURE- The key to any healthy skin is by moisturizing it daily. ,  3. PROTECTION AGAINST THE SUN- Protection against the sun is the most important for oily skin. I would recommend you to use  water-based sunscreen as oil based sunscreens make you look greasy. And the do's other than this -Remove makeup before going to bed Keep your skin and body always hydrated by drinking plenty of water and eating fruits and vegetables that are highly rich in water.  
    • Makeup items and cooking recipes are essential part for every women in this world because they are really attached with their daily activity.
