Not too long ago I saw the Unpopular Opinions Makeup Tag on Hunida’s blog, and I thought it would be fun to do today!
There are no rules, so we can get straight into the tag!
1. POPULAR MAKEUP PRODUCT YOU DON’T LIKE
I do not like Kylie Cosmetics products. I have tried both the Kylie Cosmetics Lipstick in Candy K and more recently Posie K as well as the Kylie Cosmetics Gloss in So Cute, but they are so overpriced. The liquid lipsticks are very drying and not transfer-proof while the gloss is the same quality as a $5 NYX Butter Gloss.
2. POPULAR MAKEUP PRODUCT/BRAND THAT EVERYONE ELSE SEEMS TO HATE BUT, YOU LOVE
I know there are many people who love his brand, but I will say JSC because he is controversial and some will not support him or his brand. However, I love his makeup especially the Conspiracy collection.
3. MAKEUP COLLAB YOU DIDN’T LIKE OR WERE NOT INTERESTED IN
Morphe x Jaclyn Hill. I like the look of the four blue and purple shades in her first palette, but the rest of it looked boring with all the neutral shades. Then when The Vault came out with the four mini palettes, there were issues with the formula, so I had no interest in purchasing them either. In February her Volume 2 palette was released, and the color story looks better than her first palette, but again there is controversy with the formula no longer being vegan (also the formula for her Volume 1 palette changed too), so Jacyln Hill’s collab with Morphe is not one I am interested in.
4. POPULAR MAKEUP STEP THAT YOU NEVER DO
Eyeliner. In high school and college, I used to always use eyeliner under my eyes, but now I never do. Now I use eyeshadow under my eyes, and I like my makeup looks without eyeliner.
5. POPULAR BEAUTY INFLUENCER YOU DON’T SUBSCRIBE TO/WATCH
There are actually only a few beauty influencers I do subscribe to (NikkieTutorials, Safiya Nygaard, and Simply Nailogical), so others like James Charles, Manny MUA, Tati Westbrook, Jaclyn Hill, Zoella, etc. I do not subscribe to or watch.
6. POPULAR MAKEUP BRAND THAT YOU DON’T USE/SUPPORT ANYMORE
Kat Von D Beauty/KVD Vegan Beauty. After Kat Von D announced that she was not going to vaccinate her child, I stopped supporting her brand. In January of this year, she sold her makeup brand to Kendo and it was renamed to KVD Vegan Beauty. Kat Von D will no longer profit from the brand, however, I still will not support KVD Vegan Beauty because of the association to Kat Von D that is still there (they are using her initials, but they stand for Kindness, Vegan Beauty + Discovery and Doing Good).
7. MAKEUP TREND THAT YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN TRYING
Any trend involving eyebrows. Over the years, there always seems to be a new brow trend popping up from feathered and fishtail brows to Christmas tree and halo brows, and I do not want to try any of them.
8. MAKEUP PRODUCT THAT WAS BETTER IN THEORY THAN WHEN YOU USED IT (EITHER SWATCHED BETTER OR WORKED BETTER ON OTHERS THAN ON YOU)
Pretty much any multipurpose product is better in theory than in reality. I have tried the Emite Lip & Cheek Tint, and it worked fine as a lip tint, but it was difficult to use as a cheek tint. Also, the Pixi MultiBalm looked nice on the cheeks, but it was streaky on the lips. Another example is the Manna Kadar Fantasy 3-in-1 Blush Highlighter Eyeshadow. It was great as an eyeshadow and highlighter, but it was too shimmery and the wrong shade for blush.
What are your unpopular makeup opinions?
