To Buy The Hype?
Everything new is old again.
With a blink of an eye, your smartphone is no longer in vogue and that state-of-the-art laptop you invested in, now is replaced with the latest iPad.
Keeping up with the latest and greatest is unfeasible!
The flood of new products that will "forever change you life" is perpetual. As much as I enjoy experimenting with an assortment of beauty brands and makeup, it gets to be a surfeit of mediocre stuff. When tempted with a new "must have" cream or "multi-purpose" beauty creation, I wonder Is it worth the hefty price? Am I just paying for the brand name?
Does the miracle cream or perfect makeup brand exist, or are we just buying the hype? Here are four products that claim to perform magic; these could be my next holy grail beauty staples or just a misuse of money.
|Chanel's Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation has been the talk of the beauty town!|
This water based foundation claims to create a natural, flawless face (don't they all).
After I run out of my MUFE foundation, I might crack and give Chanel a chance.
|On a photo shoot, a Chanel makeup artist recommend to me - MUFE HD Microfinish Powder. I knew this stuff was gold since she worked for Chanel and still used this on all of the models. The artist said this was the best|
translucent setting powder and kept skin shine free.
|My fellow fashionista, Malorie, told me about this balm! Dior Addict Lip Glow|
claims to "respond to the color chemistry of your lips to create a shade that is uniquely yours."
Is this just a fancy tinted lip shine? At least it has spf 10!
|Ahhh the expensive eye cream. Countless creams guarantee to fill fine lines, banish bags, and eliminate dark circles. After watching a video of Bobbi Brown discussing the wonders of her hydrating eye cream, I thought it was worth researching. Knowing Bobbi Brown to be an extremely credible beauty brand combined with positive reviews on Sephora.com, for $46 dollars could this be your miracle in a jar? |
What have you purchased that was worth the hype? Have you payed a pretty penny for a pointless product?
