Disappointing products/THINGS THAT ARE SHIT

L'Oreal True Match Foundation
This stuff gets so much hype, particularly on YouTube, but it just doesn't mesh well with my skin. I mean, it blends nicely and feels fresh and light, but it really exaggerates my pores and fine lines. Makes me look haggard. DNW.

Haus of Gloi Twice is Nice Pumpkin Butter
Twice is Nice is one of my HG scents. Almondy, cookie goodness. Divine. I expected the pumpkin butter to be just as divine, but no. This stuff smells like a cheap, generic Sorbelene kinda deal. The intended scent is barely there, and the texture is pretty basic, too. No repurchase. Ever.

Savvy Eyeshadow Pencil in Bacio (not pictured, but you can find it here)
Dear God, no. Once blended on the lid, the gorgeous pigment/colour practically disappears, and lasting power sits at about ten minutes (twenty, if I throw a shadow on top). Nah, mate.

Models Prefer Finale Make-Up Setting Mist
I don't find this helps my foundation to stick around any longer, or help it look any better. I'll be using this as a 'refresher' spray and that's pretty much it. Later, boo.

What have you been disappointed by lately?

Pls help - issues with pores + fine lines

Hey guys!

I'm having an issue with my pores and fine lines looking a little more defined/exaggerated than usual. I haven't changed anything major in my routine, so I'm a little weirded out.

Is using a primer a good solution? I'm not a primer gal, but if it'll help my skin to look a little less HAGGARD AS FUCK, I'll turn into one.

Help a girl out?

Beauty pick-me-ups

Here's a list of shit I enjoy using when I feel like a butthead:

Sweet smells
Whether it be a caramel-scented body wash, a coconutty body butter, a lavender-based pillow spritz or a perfume that makes me want to sex myself (I'm currently obsessing over Michael Kors' various gardenia-based perfumes), nice scents never fail to perk me up. Oh, and candles! Lighting a candle during a shower or bath makes me feel a little bit amazing.

Shimmer 'n' glow
A little gleam on the cheeks always makes me feel and look a lot chirpier. I love thebalm's highlighters, especially Cindy-Lou, because she doubles as a blush. Sweet. Packing some shimmer on my lids is also a good time.

Lush textures
Massaging oils on my face and body makes me feel great. There's just something about oil that's extra pampering and relaxing. Same with a thick 'n' rich exfoliant. I have to shout out the Soap & Glory exfoliants because I am absolutely addicted to their cakebatteresque texture. Double whammy because they also smell amazing.

DIY facials
When I'm feeling like a buttface, a good round of cleanse + exfoliate + mask + treatment makes me feel a million bucks. I've especially been loving the Indeed Laboratories Exfoliant. It's a powder that you mix with water that feels lovely on my skin and makes it baby-soft. Woo to the hoo.

Fun lips
A bright, matte lip and/or a pretty, shiny gloss is always a nice pick-me-up. I CHALLENGE YOU TO DISAGREE. Come at me. Chi Chi's Wrapped Around My Pinkie is a mega fave.

What are your beauty pick-me-ups?
