MAKEmeUPLamour's Most Hated

Good Afternoon or Good Evening depending on which part of the world you're in. Today's post is not your usual cup of tea. I have decided to post some of my NON favorite Makeup Products. Lets begin :)

(Starting from left to right)

1) Colorescience Sunforgettable - This product claimed to be almost clear but when it came to the application it was simply horrible. Very cakey, and the powder puff provided was simply ridiculous. Would definitely not recommend this to anyone.

2) Sally Hansen's Hard As Nails Extreme Wear in 05 Sugar Bare - At first I absolutely loved this, for one I found this at the perfect price $1. Secondly, I couldn't see anything past the name. I mean c'mon ladies and gents don't you just love the name. Think about it Sugar Bare is simply adorable but the payoff is definitely not. You need at least 3 Coats to achieve the desired color! How awful is that? Well I'll tell you, there's nothing that bothers me more than a nail polish you can't do anything with! Forget about a quick Mani or pedi, this takes about an hour to dry.

3) Avon Glazewear Dazzle in Pink Radiance - I had hopes for this lipgloss but was completely unaware that it was both sticky and shimmery. For the thing I hate the most is shimmery lipgloss and even more so when you can feel it on your lips. This had both! At first I thought I could bare through and grow to love it but I soon realized the only thing I loved was the smell. It is simply intoxicating. :)

4) Monave Serecite Primer - OK confession time! This was actually my first mineral powder primer. So there for I must admit I was truly heart broken when it became a fail. It just did not work for me, and added to my oily skin.

5) Almay One Coat Dial Up Mascara - During it's hype on YouTube, I decided to buy this as soon as I could. At the time, it was no where to be found, but one day while at my favorite store (99 Cents) I happen to catch a break. And well you know what happened. I purchased, tried and Hated it all in the same month. For it was an utter waste of time! This mascara did not lengthen nor give me voluminous lashes! Instead it made me eyes water and itch. Allergic Reaction!!! OH NOOOO!!!! Need I say more?

6) L.A Colors Auto Eyeliner in Black Brown - Unlike the others, I did not have high hopes for this product. I simply just said "what the hay, lets give it a try." I believe it didn't work for me due to my oily skin but if you don't have that issue, go ahead, give it a whirl. Let me know how it worked for you.

There are a few items I no longer have and wish I did. Simply for posting purposes of course, but I hope you enjoined reading my rant. And no worries there are more posts to come.

Disclaimer: The products mention were either bought by me or given as a gift. This is only my opinion, you may or may not agree with me.

If that wasn't enough it is also paraben and sulfate-free. Dermatologist tested and suitable for all skin types.

However I did decide to give this product a try, and luckily for me it couldn't have come at a better time.

Enhance Your Natural Beauty with Etniq Minerals

In order to kick off the New Year properly, Here's a review a bit over due featuring Etniq Minerals by Leah Patterson. Since it's start a few months ago, this company has gained enormous following for their unique ability to create gorgeous pigments suitable for most skin tones. But in order to understand how far they've come you must first learn about their beginnings. Etniq Minerals was created for the diva in all of us by the very lovely and talented Leah Patterson. Who sought to create something worth buying, without the worry of harmful chemicals. I believe she achieved just that, for I was given the opportunity to try her products and fell in love. Here are some of the best and brightest from Etniq.

Olive Peach Foundation - Unfortunately this does not match my skin tone nor does it blend very well. Nevertheless it is definitely long lasting, light-weight and build-able as well as a Custom Made Foundation, which Can not be found on the Etniq site. Customs are $30
Rate: ♥ ♥

Sunset Blush - This gorgeous peach tone is perfect for all of those who wish to bring some color in a very subtle way. However I must admit, I mainly use this as an eyeshadow for the color is just to mesmerizing. Not to mention all the complements I receive from not just my family and friends but strangers too. This definitely a must have from Etniq, there is no going wrong with this shade, for just one sweep of color is all you need. But can also be built up for a night out on the town look.

Earth Eyeshadow

Earth Eyeshadow
Absolutely love this color, there isn't a shade I use more than this. Besides the color, I love the attention it draws to my brown eyes but most of all I love the application. For it is easy to apply and very little goes a long way. The picture seen to the left of your screen does not do this shade justice. Believe me, You will be amazed at the gorgeous simplicity of the color as well as the results you see after applying just one sweep.
Rate: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Melon Eyeshadow
Melon EyeshadowAlthough shimmery, this shade is definitely not one to be doubtful of. For this is a lovely orange shade enriched with shimmer and a brown base, creating a color worth your money as well as your love. This is definitely my Top Favorite Shade from the Etniq Minerals Line. Wear it alone or pair it with another eye popping shade. Overall this is a color sure to draw interest.

Merlot Eyeshadow- Unfortunately I'm not a fan of this color. I wish this wasn't so but I have to be truthful and although it looked gorgeous in it's container, it did not come nearly as close to that in which I pictured. I can assure you I used the Elf Primer as it's base and still no results. I also tried using a combination of the Elf Primer and a white eyeshadow base, which I did see a difference. Ultimately I decided to use this solely as a crease eyeshadow and nothing more.
Rate: ♥ ♥

Tips & Tricks: Pair Earth and Melon eyeshadow for the perfect eye-drawing look that will be sure to capture anyone's attention.

Special Thanks To: Leah Patterson for allowing me to review her company and providing the items for review. I would also like to thank her for her patience and understanding.

Remember to Feel Free, and Stay beautiful with Etniq Minerals.
