Worth the hype?

Brands launching new products often highly advertise their newly launched product. Some of these products are also extremely hyped up in the amazing blogosphere. Today I wanted to share with you five hyped up beauty products I've tried, and whether I think they are worth the hype.

First up is the MAC Mineralize Finish in Lightscapade. A product known for it's super soft texture, and pretty design it is essentially a high-end highlighter. The finish is gorgeous, but not too obvious that you look like a disco ball. But, in all honesty I have the MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighting Powder which I believe does the job just as well.
 
Worth the hype? No, I love that I have it in my collection but it is in no way a necessity.
The Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue is a relatively new base to the scene, but one that I have read so much about and see it constantly being mentioned. It is a tinted gel that comes in ten colours, and easily adapts to your natural skin tone. The Complexion Rescue has a light, natural, glowy finish but somehow still has very good coverage.
So, is it worth the hype? YES hands down, I have just run out and I am gutted I am on a spending ban.

Another base that has had a lot of hype surrounding it is the L'Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation. The foundation is said to be waterproof, steam proof and generally last very well, but this is something I have never got from the product. I don't know if it is just me but when I wear it it wears off within a couple of hours. I'm also not keen no the finish of the base.
Worth the hype? Not for me.

The Clinique Chubby Sculpting Contour Stick is another well hyped product. A stick to easily draw in where you want to contour before blending, not only sounds amazing but is amazing. It also blends so easily and even works really well with pale skin. Don't let the look of the dark shade put you off.
Worth the hype?  Yes.
Last up is the First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy; a product I only brought after physically seeing the product used in a YouTube video and being immediately amazed. It is designed to instantly smoothe and brighten the eye area, and it definitely does! My black circles are something I have never really noticed a difference with until I tried this eye cream from First Aid Beauty.
Worth the hype? Again, it is another big fat yes.

What beauty products have you tried that are hyped up? Have you found them to be worth the hype?

  1. I'm the same as you with the L'oreal foundation - it wore off a lot quicker than my other foundations. Wasn't a fan
