Mel's Love Hate Products

MEL'S LOVE HATE PRODUCTS

Just gonna start by saying this blog post is nothing to do with our beloved gangsters on RTE. There won't be a mention of Nidge, Frano or the boys here. This blog post is to outline products that I have tried recently and either really love or absolutely hate. Bare in mind girls that this is completely and totally my opinion. You may see something in the ''Mel Hates'' section and think OMG she's mad I love that or visa versa in the ''Mel Loves'' section. 

MEL LOVES
MAC STROBE CREAM
I love this product and wear it every single day. You can apply it under your foundation and it acts as an illuminator and doubles up as a primer. It also gives my skin the most gorgeous glow on those no makeup days.


GARNIER MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER
This is amazing for those lazy nights when you couldnt be bothered with doing a full cleanse routine. I always leave mine in my bedside drawer with a packet of cotton pads. I don't use it every night BUT I do use it every morning to freshen up and clean my skin before makeup. It's so quick and easy to use. 

MEMEME SKIN ILLUMINATOR 
I randomly picked this up because it reminded me of a benefit highlighter. My thinking was to try the more affordable option before spending money on a more high end product. I LOVE IT. It gives my cheek, collar and brow bone especially the most stunning glow and shimmer. 


DERMALOGICA DAILY MICROFOLIANT 
I am a very lucky lady to have a big professional sized tub of this product. It is sooooo good. It makes my skin feel so smooth and improves the appearance of your skin ten times over in just a few days. A little pricey but DEFO worth it. 

DUO EYELASH ADHESIVE 
One huge and very common mistake when it comes to applying false eyelashes both strip and individual is using a poor quality glue. DUO is a little pricey but you will have it ages and it will make your eyelash applications 100 times easier. 

NKD SKN TAN
I love nkd skn because its affordable, it's gives instant colour, dries fast AND fades evenly. I promise it is as good as it sounds. I have tried soooo many tans over the years and this is right up there in my favourites. 

COCOA BROWN TOUGH STUFF
Tough stuff can be used to exfoliate prior to tanning and for removing false tans. I have tried it with lots of tans, even really stubborn ones and it never fails. My skin is baby smooth after it to! Another huge plus is that the scrub is in a pink gel so it doesn't feel too rough or abrasive on your skin. 



MEL HATES
CATRICE LASH BOOST 
First off I LOVE Catrice. It's affordable makeup up with high end results BUT the Catrice lash boost that was released a few weeks back was a total disaster product for me. Basically you apply a coat of mascara, then a coat of lash boost fibres and seal it all back in with another coat of mascara and it is meant to give you fab, fuller and longer lashes. All I got was a very poor result and very very sore eyes. I tried lots of different application methods and lots of different mascaras but no joy...at all. 

BARRY M BROW PEN
This is one I have ages and I remember being sooooo excited buying it in boots. I love brow products but OMG I hated it! Not only was it hard to use but it turned my eyebrows green! I wanted to cry!!! I made a joke that it was St Patrick's weekend thank god and I might be able to pull it off but I felt like an eegit with green brows like! 

MAC STUDIO SCULPT FOUNDATION 
So my other half, Josh, was picking up my foundation and he got the wrong one! He got the right shade but I wanted the MAC Studio fix fluid not the studio sculpt. Anyway I thought hey it's MAC it's bound to be good plus I needed a foundation so I used it. I didn't like it because it had a strange chemically kind of smell, it was so thick and heavy on my face and it was near impossible to blend. You would blend peanut butter easier with a makeup brush. All that said I did use it because it cost over €30. I just mixed it with a little BB cream but I would never buy it again. 

Thanks for reading you guys and girls.
Lots of love
Melissa x
