After a few weeks off, it’s now the perfect time to start my 2017 blogging year and I thought it would be fun to pinpoint the 6 beauty things that I wish would disappear with 2016.
This trend has been so used over the years, I think it has reached its limits. Each makeup brand has launch a product with a so-called beauty guru, a famous YouTuber or a overexposed artist. It may have been cute at first but now it’s just a marketing cheap scam to benefit from an individual’s fanbase (in my opinion). Just think of the “Too Faced & Nikkie Tutorials” flop shall we?
They were 2016’s hyped products even though they are the most uncomfortable formulas to put on our lips. Please, let’s bring back our good old, basic lipstick and leave that dry mess far far away…
Am I the only one who begin to find these influencers “boring to death” these days? I basically unsubscribed and stopped following them at the end of last year. Don’t get me wrong, I’m more than happy for their successes, but personally, every recent video now feels like an informercial and sounds so FAKE. I now enjoy watching the smaller YouTuber and their REAL life!
Sephora VIB Rouge Status
Since the Rouge status was introduced, I have been an avid member and even spent a fortune just to keep this status. I now realize that VIBs have the same perks as Rouges’ privileges, so why on earth should I spend 1000$ or more just for the free shipping? Sephora will see less of me in 2017 and I will probably buy more stuff at Shoppers; at least their perks are greater and translate into more money in my pocket.
Pastel Hair Colored
I think it’s fair to see that the novelty of pastel hair is way gone. Pink, purple, blue or grey have been used to the max. Sometimes, it’s tough for women to get all the respect and recognition they deserve, imagine when you sport a new pastel blue hairdo? Maybe it’s a generation thing, but out of the 2000+ workers at my job, I haven’t see ONE single lady with pastel hair all year. For younger girls, it’s probably a good way to express yourself, but in a professional/conventional environment, maybe it should become a thing of the past…
I love highlights and I do apply some every single day in MODERATION. Personally, the “in your face”, disco ball effect should be banned. As a weird guess, highlighters are probably the category that sold the most in 2016, but in real life, I rarely see girls (and boys) rocking shinny cheekbones.
