When I asked you guys on Twitter whether I could do a ‘not worth the hype’ post containing 2 products, thankfully you all said yes!
I really enjoy reading these type of posts because I like to see two different opinions on a product, especially if I’m contemplating buying it! This is my first time writing one up though so be sure to let me know whether you’ve liked it.
When I first received this as a Christmas present a few years ago, I was ECSTATIC. Just look at all those pretty colours! I thought I would get SO much used out of it.
The first time I started applying it, I couldn’t get ANY colour pay-off from any of the shades. I even tried to use some of the darker colours since then, but have honestly been so unimpressed. There’s also loads of fall-out and it is so faint on the eye-lids that it might aswell not be there.
To say the palette is £40, my opinion on it is very underwhelming. I might try it again some time in the future just so it actually gets some use, but I wouldn’t recommend it to a friend.
CHARLOTTE TILBURY MAGIC FOUNDATION
This is another very unloved product in my collection.
It’s marketed as a full coverage foundation, but whenever I’ve worn it, it ‘sits’ on the skin and makes me look very doll-like. I’ve tried using just my hands and then a buffing brush, neither really made a difference.
It was very matte, and seemed to magnify problem areas that I had by flaking. I’m pretty sad about this because its an expensive purchase, but I can’t see myself loving it in the future either.
Have you tried any of these products? What did you think?
