Top 10 Worst Makeup Products of 2016
Pr + purchased by me.
I’ve been practicing how I apply my makeup, trying to emulate the talented Mickey. Today I feel like I did a great job with applying my foundation. I feel like my skin looks like it’s glowing. I love it so much I had to share. The only thing I’m not feelin’ about this look is the blush – tarte Exposed. I should have gone with Urban Decay Fetish or X-Rated or something from the UDxGwen Blush Palette. The blush color just looks wrong. Ah well, I wanted to give it a try to see what I thought of the color.

My miss was It Superhero mascara. It clumps and gets on everything. Very disappointing. Maybe I got a bad tube, however it went in the garbage.
So sorry to hear it was a miss for you!
Good thing I didn’t buy Tarte shape tape and TF peach palette
I think the smell would have bothered you!
Collective Beauty says
Oh no, shape tape smells too?! I had to return their rainforest of the sea concealer for the same reason, it was AWFUL (someone described it as paint thinner and that’s really accurate). Ugh, guess I’ll be skipping shape tape.
To me it smells like bad bug spray. Other people say Citronella.
I haven’t experienced any real misses this year because I read yours, Christine from Temptalia and Isabella Muse’s blog. Too Faced and Tarte are really hard to get here (only sold in one shop and their stock is behind yours in terms of releases) and it is very expensive. So no incentive there to buy their products – which have been on the average side for awhile now. Thank you once again for your honest opinions and reviews.
Happy New Year to you and your family.
I love both of their blogs 🙂 Happy New Year to you and yours, too 🙂
I knew most of these from following your blog. Thank you for saving me from the Too Faced and Tarte concealers since I’d have wanted them both.
You’re welcome Marcia!

Thank you for the T on Sweet Peach. Back when it came out, I considered tying to snag one based on the idea of it being perfect for me (minus the scented aspect, ugh, why?). But, was not impressed with the online swatches I was seeing anywhere and yet a lot of bloggers (not you) seemed to be raving about it when even their own photos showed pretty poor colour payoff. Glad I avoided it & thanks for your honest reviews! I always feel I can trust what I read on your blog.
You’re welcome! I bought it and was so disappointed! Thank you for the kind words!
Lola Seicento says
Thank you so much for this post, Courtney! I was contemplating the TF Peach Palette, and definitely will pass!
Thanks SO much for reminding me not to go anywhere near that Sweet Peach palette. It’s still hyped all the time.
The bad smell + poor performance is reason to avoid it. If you like the colors, Silk Naturals has a vegan dupe with better color payoff. I also love my DIY Peach Palette 🙂
