Hyped up products! – Are they worth the hype? (Makeup edition)

IMG_5844

Staying away from hyped up products is so hard for me because I’m one of those women who likes to try everything and I enjoy the process of testing out new things. Well I’m mainly beauty blogger so it’s important for me to test out products all the time and share with you my opinion and recommendations. But when it comes to hyped up products I’m very vigilant. I don’t trust people recommendations all the time.

I don’t know why, but I just feel like most huge influencers don’t really care about recommending something great, but mostly about sales. I actually don’t follow any huge vloggers or bloggers, I can’t trust most of them. I always trust smaller bloggers because I feel like they are more honest. It maybe is a mistake, but that’s how I feel.

When it comes to makeup I always take samples, or try something at the store before I actually buy it. When it comes to drugstore makeup I’m fine with buying product before I try it, but when it comes to higher end brands like L’oreal or luxury makeup I always make sure I’ll absolutely love the product before I actually spend money on it. Now let’s talk about some hyped up makeup products I read a lot about before I bought them for myself. Are they worth the hype?

Catrice HD Liquid Coverage foundation – REVIEW
I mean, this foundation was so hyped up when it came out, so many people were literally losing their mind because of this foundation. It took me a long time to try it, just because it’s not something I would use a lot. I don’t like mat foundations even though I have combination oily skin. But I got a chance to get it and test it out properly and I do like it. I can see why it’s hyped up foundation, for me this is not foundation for every day, it’s just not for daily wear. This is full glam foundation, for party makeup, night out when you want that beautiful high coverage look. You can check the full review here!

Catrice Liquid Camouflage high coverage concealer – REVIEW
This is still super hyped up product, for a lot of people this is holy grail product. It again took me so long to try it, because I’m more of a natural makeup type of person. But I do like this one, I think it’s definitely worth the hype. It has incredible coverage and it’s so affordable. If you want to try full coverage concealer but don’t want to spend a lot, this one is great option. I have full review on this one, check it out here.

L’oreal Infallible Stay Fresh foundation 24H
I bought this one just when hype started, but never really reviewed it on blog. I like this foundation, I used it a lot actually, it’s almost empty. But I don’t think it’s something you have to have. L’oreal here is quite expensive and this one is definitely not worth the money for me. I can find better, less expensive version for sure. As I said it’s good foundation, but I don’t think it’s worth the hype.  I will definitely use it up because I want to get my money worth, but I don’t think I would buy it again.

La Roche Posay EFFACLAR DUO (+) UNIFIANT – REVIEW
I read about this product only positive reviews. Everyone said it’s super natural on skin, it looks beautifully glowy and healthy and I can definitely agree. This is a must have summer product for me. It’s so light on skin, looks natural and super glowy. I would seriously recommend you to try this tinted moisturizer if you like natural makeup. I did full review on this one, make sure to check it out here.

Essence Make me Brow eye brow gel mascara – REVIEW
This is probably the first ever Essence hyped up product. This made Essence talked about brand in makeup world. It’s definitely with a reason because we all know how incredible Essence is and how great their prices actually are. This brow gel is just amazing, I can’t find anything that is even close to this one. I tried many eye brow gel mascaras, but I always go back to this one, because it’s so great. Check out my full review on this one here if you like.

Essence Shine, shine, shine wet look lip gloss – REVIEW
Oh my God these were such a hit from their Spring/Summer 2017 collection. I knew I wanted to get them as soon as they were available and I did. I have them in two shades and those are 06 – Bright on (metallic nude shade) and 10 – Dress up our lips. I love the formula of these lip glosses, they are really smooth, they smell incredible and look super glossy. I would seriously recommend you to try these if you can. You can check the full review on this one here. You can still get these in Essence offer, so definitely give them a go if you like glossy lips.

  1. Excellent review! ♥️ I have not tried any of these products, but did try the hyped up Fenty Beauty foundation and it was fantastic! Saving this post for future foundation and concealer purchases. Thanks for sharing. xx

  2. I’m with you on not always trusting big bloggers opinions… like you said sometimes it just feels like they only care about sales or jumping on the bandwagon. Definitely want to try some of these products out!xx

  3. Sometimes it really feels that way, most big influencers promote everything, so it’s really hard to trust their recommendations. I usually believe smaller influencers, especially here on wordpress. xx

  4. Yeah, exactly. They really promote everything, from makeup, skin care, clothing lines, vitamines and different supplements. It’s definitely so hard to believe them, so I usually read reviews from smaller bloggers. xx

  5. I totally understand what you mean. I really don’t buy hyped up makeup often, especially if they’re recommended by big youtubers. I only buy something when I know that certain youtubers with the same makeup style, skin tone or skin type as me like it. There’s no point in buying a matte foundation that everyone raves about when I don’t like (even hate) matte foundations in the first place. I have to admit that I have tried hyped up makeup and always really liked it. But again, I’m very picky with who I watch or read, haha. I often find that small bloggers have no reason to lie. They’re always honest because there’s no benefit to lying for them. Good to know that the L’oreal foundation isn’t necessary. I was almost tempted to buy it 😀 xx

  6. I’m pretty much the same. I choose only few beauty youtubers to watch and trust their recommendations. It’s impossible to try all the hyped up products as there is so many, I would literally go broke super easy haha. Also there is so many new collections every month, so much new makeup that I’m really selective and deciding what do I need and what can I pass on. I also believe smaller bloggers, especially here on wordpress. L’oreal Infallible is good foundation, but I don’t see any amazing results that most people claim this foundation has. xx

  7. I also don’t like the algorithm, that is what made me get off Instagram totally. I don’t spend a lot of time there as it is so hard to get your photos show up in reader or explore page. I like the stories though, those are always fun haha. xx

  8. It’s definitely so hard not to buy a hyped product! Ugh! My wallet is never happy with me while makeup shopping LOL! But I’ve been trying my best to finish the makeup I already have as much as possible. Out of all these products, I really wanna try Essence lipgloss!! They sound amazing!! x

  9. Me too. I’m trying to really stay away from buying too much makeup, but it’s so hard sometimes as it really brings me joy. I bought a lot of makeup while I was travelling, so I’m staying away from it in the next few months. Essence lip glosses are so good and so affordable, you’ll love them. xx

  10. It’s really a nice foundation. I have been wearing it for month straight. We just don’t have good shade selection here unfortunately, so I have to have some color before using it, but thankfully we are in summer. xx

  11. I totally get what you mean some big influencers are more bothered about profit than actually recommending decent products so it can be hard to know who to trust. I love the essence make me eye brow gel it’s so good xx

  12. Yeah, nowadays it’s very hard to find actual influencers that you can trust and believe their recommendations. Essence Make me Brow is such a staple in my makeup collection, I always need it. xx
