50 Words or Less Reviews: Products that Didn't Work Out

Tuesday, August 13, 2019

It's been a while since we had an installment of 50 Words or Less Reviews, no? I had a flurry of products that were disappointing in the last few months.

 Milk Makeup Hydro Primer, $15/30 for mini/full size.

I love this kind of sticky primer in theory - fantastic for skin that is easily dehydrated, for oily skinned folks it tackles grease and transforms it into glow. Unfortunately there's alcohol denat. in this and it burned like mad.

Not new to the oudh game but new to Montale's take on it, it's their house focus. Yikes! I found myself thinking (a bit cruelly, I admit) that if these insipid perfumes are the best they can do, perhaps it's time for a new focus. 

The color range is fun, the price is great and these swatch decently on my hand. They're not really gel though. On my eye they flake a lot, it can be fixed with a bit of Inglot Duraline, but why should I do that extra work?

Naked Eye

Invisible in one coat, it required 3ish coats to build up to what you see here. Flaked terribly during application, each subsequent coat would chunk up the previous one. Not sure how people on IG get their lashes looking so evenly vivid with this mascara!
