I think we all own at least one product that is way over hyped. But I own so many that are under hyped too. I have a few pieces of makeup that are seriously under rated, or maybe I've missed the hype or something. But anyway I wanted to share these with you...
Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation | £ 27 POST
Everybody raves about the Naked Skin concealer, and for good reason it is brilliant. But it's foundation counter part is equally as great but doesn't get the love! It's lightweight, easy to blend, has good staying power and medium coverage. But it's the finish I love most about it. It gives a satin finish whilst still offering a subtle glow and looks so natural. This paired with Naked Skin concealer make the skin look flawless!
NYX HD Foundation | £12.50 POST
I have a list of things I love from NYX that the majority of people love too, but I feel this foundation is over looked. But It really is great. I much prefer it over the Makeup Forever HD Foundation - which in my opinion is rubbish. This one offers good, buildable coverage, a finish similar to the Naked Skin Foundation, and it wears really well throughout the day. There's really nothing not to love about this.
Maybelline Super Stay 24HR Concealer | £6.19 POST
This has been one of my go to concealers for a long time. It's perfect for blemishes. It has good coverage, great staying powder and it isn't overly drying. I much prefer this over the much loved Collection concealer and I'm surprised more people don't.
Sleek Blush By 3 Pink Lemonade | £9.99
I remember a time when everybody was talking about the Sleek Blush by 3 Lace Palette but not Pink Lemonade. Sleek are well know for their intensly pigmented blushes and this little palette houses some amazing shades. It has 2 powder formulas and a cream one. The cream one ( Macaroon) is a matte Pinky, Mauve colour, that blends out so easily and lasts all day. Pink Tint is similar to Macaroon but in a powder formula with shimmer in it. Icing Sugar is my favourite, it's a lovely Pinky Rose gold colour with subtle shimmers in it. This looks stunning on the cheeks and gives them a gorgeous glow. As with all sleek blushes, the formula is creamy and easy to blend. They also last all day without fading.
Stila The eyes Are The Window Soul Palette | £30
This palette is easily the most under-rated product out of all the ones here! This to me is what the Original Naked Palette is to others. It has a range of warm and cool nude shades, as well as Black and Grey. All the shades are well pigmented, creamy and easy to blend. It can create almost any eye look. All housed in a beautiful Rose Gold and Rose packaging! See this post for swatches.
L'Oreal Color Riche Eye Shadow | £5.49
These are the best drugstore eye shadows I've tried (I think). They are so creamy and pigmented, I'm shocked more people don't talk about them (well not that I've seen). My favourites are 107 Macaron Vanille, which is a creamy matte Yellow-y Beige colour. And 500 Luminere which is a stunning Gold Champagne colour.
Theres my little round of products that deserve more love. What are yours? Have you tried any of these?
Until next time...
