Hype2 Hype1 Hype3

Being the beauty blog obsessive that I am, I come across a lot of product recommendations – many of which, I have to say, are pretty tip top notch.

But every now and then, I come across a product that is mentioned over and over again, by numerous different bloggers, all of whom sing its praises at every available opportunity. In these situations, it can be all too easy to give into the hype and purchase a product that you aren’t necessarily sure is right for you. Been there, done that and ended up with a few horrendous products in the process. And I’m sorry to say that the Aussie Miracle Dry Shampoo Mega Instant (£4.99) is one of those less-than-loved products for me.

Despite hearing brilliant things from a lot of people, this formula just didn’t work for me at all. It didn’t help to tackle greasy hair and it didn’t provide me with any volume… On the plus side however, I wasn’t left with any white chalky residue after application. Every cloud. But for me, I’m afraid this one just didn’t work for me.

Sometimes however, the hype is totally deserved. And when it comes to the Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 107 (£5.49)I have to say – in my oh-so humble opinion – all of the praise is completely justified. I’m not usually a huge fan of matte lipsticks (I find them quite drying), but in this case, I was seriously impressed by the formula. It glides on really easily, the pigmentation is tip top and the staying power is excellent. Plus the deep wine shade is just beautiful.

So I guess when it comes to beauty hype, it’s worth remembering – you win some, you lose some.

    I really need to try the 107, everyone hypes about it and I’m so dubious to give drug store matte lipsticks a go…y’know the whole fear of it being drying. Maybe I’ll take the plunge! Really like your photos by the way 🙂 x

    1. Thanks love!

      It’s definitely worth giving a go – of all the matte drugstore options I’ve tried, this is definitely one of the best. Just have a cheeky lip balm on hand – just in case! – and you’ll be good to go! xxx
