Hated // Loved


Todays post is a beauty post dedicated to products I used to hate, and now I love.

During this month there have been four products that have really stuck out for me, and I keep going to every morning

Bodyshop Instablur All-In-One Primer

I loved this primer back in the summer, yet I stopped using it because I thought it really badly broke me out. Since using it I have discovered that it wasn't the product that was breaking me out- thank goodness! Because as a primer it is a very good product and helps my make-up sit all day.

Revlon 24hours Colourstay Foundation

Having discovered this product when a No7 consultant told me their colour match foundation service couldn't match my skin tone, I was eager to give it a go. After a couple of uses I found that it really oxidized on my face- leaving me look orange. Since then I have worked out the only way I can wear this foundation is by wearing lots of translucent powder to try and make me look a little paler before the foundation oxidizes. Apart from that, I really do love this foundation and I would say its a drugstore alternative to MAC Studio Fix (and that's saying something since I love this foundation!)

Rimmel Stay Matte Translucent Powder

Firstly I need to say I never hated this product, I just preferred my Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot powder. I bought the two products at the same time, trying both and preferring the other. But since my Soap and Glory Powder died of death about three weeks ago, I have been using this non-stop and loving it! And at a fraction of the price- it is a real bargain.

Rimmel Brow This Way Gel

There were two reasons why this product never did much for me, the formula and lack of colours. I found that using the gel on its own left my eyebrows feeling really sticky and as there was no colour similar to the brow shadow I was using at that moment (Copperplate from MAC), it was a waste. However having got MAC Mystery for Christmas and using this on my brows everyday since, the gel is rapidly becoming something I can't not include in my brow routine...and as for the formula? I can live with that!

Are there any products you originally hated and now love?
