Today I wanted to talk about those products that I absolutely love but hate at the same time. I can't be the only one that has products like this. It can be the smallest reason why I hate it but when I love it at the same time it's so frustrating! So lets get into it...
Z Palette | £8.95-£34.99
Don't worry I'm not going to slate Makeup Geek shadows, I absolutely love them and don't have a bad word to say about them. But the Z Palette drives me mad! I'm yet to find a more practical way to store my single shadows. The function of the palette is second to none. It comes in variety of sizes and holds almost any magnetic pan. You can even buy magnetic stickers to put pans in it that aren't magnetic. But they are so ugly! Especially the larger ones. This makes photography so frustrating! I also think they're a bit over priced for what they are. So I love this but hate how looks at the same time!
Sheet Masks | Various
I'm not just talking about Tony Moly Sheet masks, this is the same for all that I've tried so far. I just used these ones for photography purposes! I love the instant effects of the ones I've used. It's difficult to know exactly what one does what and the effects without listing them, but I'm doing a post on that soon. But I'm yet to find one that fits my face well. I've found on all of them the eye holes are too close together, so I'm always trying to dodge getting product in my eyes. And the mouth part is always too low. Maybe I have weird shaped face haha! But overall I love sheet masks, I just wish they fitted my face better.
Morphe 350 Palette | £19.50 | POST
I do have a whole post on if I think this is worth the hype or not (here) so I won't go into too much detail. But this again, I love and hate at the same time. I love how it has a large array of good quality shadows in one place and you create almost any eye look with it. But I hate there isn't a Black shade. I mean out of 35 eye shadows they couldn't have squeezed in a Black. And I hate how big and bulky this is. It's difficult to store in a place where I reach for it easily! I don't think this would be great for travelling either. Having said that, I do really like the palette.
Colour Pop Highlighter | $8 | POST
One minute I love this highlighter and the next day I don't. I absolutely love the shade Wisp. It's a stunning Champagne tone. It gives a really lovely dewy look to the skin. But I found the best way to apply it is with my fingers. Which I really hate! I don't know why, I don't mind applying the Colourpop Shadows with fingers. I'm strange I know!
Charlotte Tilbury Lipsticks | £23
How pretty these lipsticks look is undeniable. They ooze luxury and look stunning on my dressing table. I love all the shades I have too. See this post and post for details. But I just can't help feeling like they are slightly over priced. The formula of both the Matte Revolution and K.I.S.S.I.N.G line are really nice but it's nothing I haven't tried before. I feel like I'm paying for the packaging. Albeit, stunning packaging! I find myself wanting more shades, I just hate how pricey they are!
I do still really love these products and will continue to use them, I just thought I'd highlight some bad points! Have you got any products like this?
Have you tried any of these? What are thoughts?
Until next time...
