Beauty Products That Are Overrated

The gals over at shine.yahoo.com had a discussion about the most overrated beauty brands and Costmetics products. They weren't shy in expressing their opinions.  Here's some of the don't buys on their list.

Avon Anti-Aging Products: Most of these products are greasy and do not flatten or fill out or in any way diminish fine lines. Their ANEW Clinical Line and Wrinkle Corrector is overpriced crap.

Bare Escentuals: They have one of the worst powder foundations. It turns greasy and doesn't cover well.

Benefit: Completely overrated. A lot of cheaper equivalents can be found elsewhere that work just as well, proving that all you pay for is the fancy packaging.

Mac Eye Shadow: While the colors look great in the pan they rarely look as good when applied.

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara: Racoon eyes need I say more.

Philosophy's Hope in a Jar:  It does nothing for parched skin and has a stinky smell like sweaty socks! 

Smashbox Lipgloss:  It's horrible!  Over-priced, grainy, lasts for 2 seconds, waxy and downright bad. 

Told you they weren't shy.

  1. I've thought the same thing about Maybelline's Great Lash Mascara since 1982. It's like "The Emperor's New Clothes" and everybody feeds into it. I find it clumpy and flakey – just awful!
