In the last few months, I’ve come across my fair share of crappy products – here are the highlights…
I will start with my unpopular opinion about two cult NARS products. You might remember that I managed to get my hands on the NARS special edition Birchbox a while ago – full post here. This gave me the great opportunity to try a bunch of popular products by the brand. Let me start by saying I love NARS’s aesthetics, their packaging and general image; however, some of their products didn’t live up to the high expectations.
NARS Orgasm blush is great and would suit a lot of people for sure but it’s so, so shimmery! And we’re talking big, fat glitter particles here, not some finely milled glow. The thing is, this awesome, universal blush colour is not news, many brands do very similar shades without giving you that glitter ball effect – starting from MAC to Bourjois. You can save your money with this one.
Still on the NARS train, the Audacious mascara is another piece a lot of people have raved about. WHY? With a mascara, it’s all about the wand and this one is useless. I have always known I prefer fibre bristles but this plastic nastiness doesn’t do anything for me. My lashes look clumpy and just … sad. It’s a no from me.
