I love makeup, and I’ll try just about anything, which is why I have a basket full of overrated makeup items I couldn’t return due to store policy. Most of the makeup listed here is so popular, you probably have some in your cosmetic case or you’ve done a buy and try, like I did. If all of these overrated makeup items actually worked as expected, it would represent my entire makeup routine! Instead, I feel compelled to try and stop you from buying these from a store that doesn’t allow returns.
1. Bare Minerals
Like every other woman on the planet, I had heard so many wonderful things about Bare Minerals by Bare Essentials that I just had to give it a try. I’m handy with makeup application, but the Sephora associate made me look so good, I wished she could do my makeup every day! I was so pleased with the result that I ended up buying the original starter kit. This kit included two shades of foundation, Warmth, Mineral Veil, foundation primer, Maximum Coverage concealer brush, Flawless Application face brush and a kabuki brush. I couldn’t wait to apply my Bare Minerals the next day! Well, I didn’t do such a great application job, but I knew that would come in time. My biggest issue was the itch factor! All day I was scratching my face. What an annoyance. I used it on two subsequent days and the second day I applied it with my own makeup brushes, but I still had the dreaded itch. If I can help it, I won’t stick myself with overrated makeup items, so back to Sephora this went.
