recent beauty hits + misses


Some of you guys might remember the blog series I started a while ago called “hits & misses” where I review recent beauty products I’ve tried out that I either LOVED or didn’t really care for. Lots of you guys loved that series so I thought I’d bring back another hits & misses post today with new stuff I’ve tried lately!

Let’s start with the hits!

Beauty Misses

Here are the products I’ve tried out recently that I wasn’t a fan of!

  1. Latisse lash serum – After I stopped getting eyelash extensions about a year ago, I started using Revitalash eyelash conditioner to help make my lashes healthy and long again and LOVED IT / got the BEST results! I used that for about 3-4 months and then stopped because my lashes grew a ton and felt healthy again. A few months later I decided to give latisse a try because I’ve heard so many people rave about it, and the medspa I was going to sold it. I used it every single night for 5 months and honestly saw very little results. Granted, my eyelashes were starting off pretty long so maybe that’s why it was hard to tell. But either way, I think I saw much more significant results from Revitalash than I did Latisse! I wasn’t a fan of Latisse and couldn’t really tell it did much for me.
  2. Charlotte Tilbury flawless filter – I know, I know. I’m probably the first person you’ve ever heard say they didn’t LOVE this product. So, take this with a grain of salt lol people LOVE this product…I am just not one of those people. I tried wearing it so many different ways – as a primer, over my primer, blended with foundation etc and just did NOT get the hype behind it. Felt like another step in my makeup routine that did nothing for my skin. I also didn’t like that it added another layer to my face makeup because my face just felt more…cakey, if that makes sense ha. I definitely won’t be purchasing this again.
  3. Fenty gloss bomb – This was another product I was excited to try because it’s always a best seller at sephora and has amazing reviews. If you like SUPER GLOSSY shimmery lip gloss…you will probably love this haha. But I did not. It felt really goopy and thick and wayyyy too shiny to me. And I also thought $19 for a small lip gloss was a little crazy because to me, it felt like a gloss you could go pick up at CVS for $4. Don’t @ me people, just sharing my opinion haha! Again if you like thick goopy shiny gloss, you’ll probably love this!

I think that’s about it for the beauty products I’ve tried lately! Have you tried any new beauty products that you’ve loved?! Comment below because I’d love to try them as well!

Thanks for reading!
