December Antifavorites

Since there’s a December Favorites list, here is the anticipated December Antifavorites list! This is a list of things that just weren’t my cup of tea and didn’t work out for me. This doesn’t mean it won’t work out for you so please don’t be offended if I named something that you love. We are different people and there are things that might work out for you that might not work out for me.

Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner in Mad Max Brown

I generally like the KVD Tattoo Liner but for some reason the shade Mad Max Brown is extremely streaky and doesn’t have good coverage!

Sun Bum Coconut Chapstick

I love chapstick! It’s always great to have with you to keep your lips moisturized. I thought I’d love this chapstick since a lot of people rave about it but it was awful for me. The formula was super oily and thick, and the smell of coconut was not a subtle scent. It wreaked of coconut so badly I could smell my lips for hours even after application. Not for me.

Milani Crystal Lipgloss

I hadn’t really tried much from Milani since there isn’t a store near me that sells this brand. But regardless I’ve heard great things about this groundbreaking drugstore brand, so when I saw this lipgloss at the Dollar Tree I jumped at the opportunity to try it out! I applied this to my lips and not only was the formula sticky, the “crystal” part of this lipgloss was chunky pieces of glitter. This glitter made the lipgloss feel like it had a grainy texture! Super uncomfortable.

Temptu Liquid Bronzer

I got this bronzer in a beauty box subscription and considering it had a shimmer, I was excited to try it with how glowy it looked. Once I applied this it looked a little dark which is to be expected from a liquified bronzer. So I started blending it with a beauty blender, and what started out as too dark ended up blending into nothing at all. So I tried to blend with a brush instead, assuming the beauty blender soaked up the product since it was so liquidity. It again, blended into a patchy mess of dark and almost nothing in some areas. I don’t know what went wrong with this product but it’s definitely not my cup of tea.

Kylie Cosmetics Kourt K Lip Kit

Um. This product has a whole lot of “no” written all over it. I am so saddened by how much I spent on this lip kit from Kylie Cosmetics and it was awful. The formula was so drying it cracked on my lips with only 30 minutes of wearing it and the liner smudged all over my mouth. I also had extremely noticeable stains after removing it with an oil based makeup remover and exfoliating my lips. The stains were even noticeable the next day to the point where I had to use concealer around my lips and wear a red lip to cover it up.

CoverGirl Lipperfection Lip Liner

I got this mauve lip liner from CoverGirl because I needed it for a lipstick I purchased. First off, the product was so hard I got no payoff and trying to apply it was so hard my lips hurt. It felt like I was dragging an actual pencil across my lips. Second, even after trying to warm it up on my hands or using a blow dryer for a few seconds to warm the product it still was hard as a rock.

CoverGirl Intensify Me Liquid Eyeliner

Another CoverGirl product, I liked the product a while ago and I thought it worked well… Until I realized after wearing it for an extended period of time. Anytime I’d wear this liner there was a potent chemical smell, at the time I didn’t know what it was from. Just recently, the chemical smell was so potent it made my eyes tear up and that’s when I realized it was the liner! I don’t know if it’s just mine and it’s a manufacturers issue or they all smell this way but I don’t think I’ll be wearing this anymore.

This was my December Antifavorites so I hope you enjoyed reading and comment down below any products you weren’t a fan of this December!

-Stay Chic,
