Hyped products that we've forgotten about.

I thought today I'd chat through some products which used to be all over the blogosphere but sort of dropped off the radar. I thought I'd talk through how I feel about them and whether my opinions have changed on any of the products. So without further ado lets get into it. 

Giorgio Armani Luminous silk was so hyped up it was ridiculous. I have to admit this isn't one I've ever liked. I find it is very patchy on my skin, it clings to dry patches and just doesn't look as luminous as I feel like it should. There was so many positive reviews of this product but for me the wear and the finish were just not what I wanted especially for the price. The other base product I wanted to mention is the Bourjois CC cream, this was everywhere. I actually bought a shade far too dark so I can only use this when I have fresh tan on. That being said this product is so gorgeous. It look so glowy and dewy on the skin, it is the perfect summer base product for anyone with dry skin. 

The Naked concealer is something I still really love. I feel like this one was overtaken by the taste shape tape however I am yet to try that and am still obsessed with this concealer. It isn't the highest coverage in the world however I find its enough for me and doesn't cling to any of the dry bits on my face. The Jeffree star Skin frost got a lot of hype when they were first released however I feel like it has definitely died down. I have a couple of shades and I like them but they aren't a product I reach for all the time. I feel lie across the range of these highlights there are a lot of inconsistencies. Some are so incredibly beautiful and highlighting whereas some are super chunky and glittery. I know a lot of people also have a lot of trouble with the pans sealing.

The body shop honey bronzer did the rounds due to it's diverse shade range. I found that the range didn't go deep enough however for the paler and medium skin tones there was a great shade. I actually picked up the second shade and for me I love it on a very subtle makeup day however for me, as someone who loves a deeper bronzer it just doesn't pack enough punch for me. I really enjoy it but it isn't one I reach for regularly as it isn't dark enough for me most of the time. It would still be amazing for people who are super fair and don't love a deep bronzer. 

I feel like Rimmel Santa rose is definitely the oldest hyped product in this post. I love this blush it is a staple in my collection and is something I have pretty much almost always had. It is the prettiest pinky peach shade with a golden sheen to it. I feel like this no longer gets the credit it deserves which is such a shame as it is so beautiful. Next up I wanted to mention the Makeup geek eyeshadows. I still adore my makeup geek eyeshadow palettes but I have to admit I don't use them as much as I should. another product I still love is the Kiko Eyeshadow sticks. When Kiko first came to the UK I was so excited and bought so many of these. I still love them, they're beautiful, shimmery and something I love when I need something super quick and cute. 

The final product I wanted to mention is the Bourjois Rouge edition velvets. These where everywhere, everyone loved them and then all of a sudden they just dropped off the radar. They are very comfortable on the lips but don't completely dry down meaning I don't reach for them as I personally prefer a matte liquid lip that dries down completely. These are a nice product but not one that I reach for often. 

So that's it for today, what products do you feel lie have dropped of the blogging radar? 


  1. There are so many amazing concealers out at the moment, but I still keep coming back to my UD Naked one xx

  2. The Giorgio Armani foundation is one that I dig back out all of the time and I can never remember why I ever stopped using it!

  3. I love that bronzer. I used to swear by the Naked Concealer before I tried Tarte's Shape Tape.

  4. I still really want to try luminous silk, so many people used to completely love it, so I still want to try it out!

  5. I have that Armani foundation and I like it but it is only a summer foundation for me x

  6. The naked skin concealer will always be my favourite. I have two at the moment. I’m in fear of it running out x

  7. I absolutely love the Naked Concealer from Urban Decay x

  8. I've had my eye on that Armani foundation for so long, so it's a shame you don't get along with it! The Naked concealer is so good, and it's a shame that it's not getting the hype anymore xx

  10. The Bourjois CC cream is amazing isn’t it? I used to love it. I must pick it up again x

  11. I love so many of these products! Isn't it funny how we buy things and move on so quickly by new temptations! x
