I was watching my daily dose of Youtube yesterday and I came across a new tag called Unpopular Makeup Opinions. I thought it would be fun to answer these questions in a blog post and I encourage you guys to answer them as well. I feel like I have unpopular opinions when it comes to makeup, so this should be interesting.
Q1: Popular makeup product you don’t like.
A1: False Lashes
False lashes are a makeup/beauty product that I cannot get on board with. My everyday makeup look is natural since I work an office job. I also just prefer natural makeup opposed to full glam. Another issue I have with false lashes is that I can’t get them to look good on my eyes because I don’t have a lot of lid space. I know you are supposed to trim lashes, but when when I trim them, they still touch my eyebrows and I look ridiculous.
Q2: Popular makeup product/brand that everyone else seems to hate but you love.
A2: Kat Von D Beauty
It appears that Kat Von D has been in the hot seat for her recent anti-vaccination statement. Because of this, Kat Von D Beauty is taking a beating with many people boycotting the brand. I really enjoy her products and her perfumes are some of my favorites on the market. I don’t think that her opinions would deter me from her brand.
Q3: Makeup collab you didn’t like or were not interested in.
A3: DESI X KATY Dose of Colors Collab
This is the second collab that Youtubers Desi Perkins and Katy DeGroot did with Dose of Colors. I wasn’t interested in their first collab and I’m not interested in their second. I don’t know what it is about Dose of Colors but the brand doesn’t captivate me. Everyone seems to be obsessed with their liquid lipsticks so I finally tried one and I hated it. The formula was super dry and it cracked and balled on my lips. Another deterrent for me is when brands are only available online. Dose of Colors sells some of their products at Ulta, but I don’t think this collab will be available in store.
Q4: Popular makeup step that you never do.
I almost never contour my face, instead I bronze. I never got into contouring because I didn’t like a cooler tone on my face and I usually don’t have enough time. I find that I can get the job done just bronzing my face.
Q5: Popular beauty influencer you don’t subscribe to/watch.
A5: Laura Lee
Even before the recent “scandal” which I didn’t care about and didn’t change my opinion about Laura Lee, I never watched her. I watched her once and I immediately did not vibe with her.
Q6: Popular makeup product/brand that you don’t use/support anymore.
A6: Brow Gel
I used to always use brow gel alone or after filling in my brows. Of course I bought the ABH clear brow gel because it was so hyped. Now I find that I don’t like what brow gel does to my brows. After applying my pomade, if I apply gel on top, it separates my brow hairs creating gaps and essentially erases anything the pomade did.
Q7: Makeup trend that you have no interest in trying.
A7: Over-lining Lips
I have tried over-lining my lips once and I never did again. It looks ridiculous on me, I don’t know why. Unless someone can show me how to do it properly, I have no interest in trying this again.
Q8: Makeup product that was better in theory than when you used it. Either swatched better or worked better on others than on you.
A8: Roll on Eyeliner
Roller liner seems to be rolling their way through the beauty industry. A lot of brands have come out with their own pizza cutter eyeliners and I have to say, these do not work. Although it’s a cute idea, it’s a total gimmick that I could not get to work. You definitely don’t need this. I got the Butter London Stroke of Wow liner in my Boxycharm so I figured I’d try it. Let’s just say, I probably won’t be using this guy again.
