Beauty Bummers: Vol II

Hi! I’m back with another Beauty Bummers Post. I try to keep doing these posts so that you guys know what products I try that work and don’t work. Hopefully, I can save you from spending your money and being disappointed!

Sonia Kashuk Brush Set: I bought the limited edition brush set from target about 3 months ago for $40. I know it’s pretty much guaranteed that with any set there are bound to be some brushes that arent as great as the rest, but these eye brushes are a total bust. They offer about 6 eye brushes and they are all so big that I had a hard time figuring out what to actually use them for. The fluffy crease brush isn’t fluffy enough, and the blending brush is too dense. Their face brushes weren’t great either but since I have so many other face brushes it didn’t really bother me.
Sonia Kashuk Fan Brush: I’m new to using fan brushes so I wanted to try one affordable before I bought a more high-end version. This brush is so thin that it hardly picked up any product. I think it may have worked better for cream or even liquid products but since all my highlighters are powder it didn’t do much for me. I will probably end up using this for days that I want an extremely light highlight or to highlight the bridge of my nose.
Maybelline Fit Me Powder: I really love this powder foundation, but I put it on my beauty bummers list because it completely exploded on me! The product itself is great, but the packaging isn’t sturdy and It kept popping open and dumping foundation everywhere. Once I hit pan on it it was a wrap. It crumbled into little pieces and made a complete mess of my vanity. I’m normally very gentle with my makeup products, but I feel like when you purchase something you should at least expect for it to open when you need it to and to stay closed when its supposed to. I shouldn’t have to worry about my foundation falling all over the place, especially when I haven’t had this problem with any other powders.
Becca Highlighter In Topaz: I just bought this product in my recent makeup haul and was so excited to try this.  I have heard so many amazing things about Becca highlighters and was dying to try one. Unfortunately this color is way to pigmented and does not show as a highlight on my skin tone( it simply blends and looks like i have glitter on my face) I think the consistency is fine and its very pigmented I just don’t think it was the right color for me. Everyone in the store convinced me to buy this shade because its the top seller for darker skin tones, but it turns out I didn’t like it. Moral of the story is buy what works for you and not what other people tell you! I’ll be doing a full review on this soon, but this product all in all was a bit of a let down.
Thats it for my beauty bummers for march. It seems like powders and brushes were a big let down. If you have any suggestions on better products feel free to comment below or tweet me!
