The Beauty Quadrant: Brands I Won’t Buy From!

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe and welcome back! I know the world is very crazy right now but felt like doing another beauty related post!

Brands I Am Not Buying From!

Disclaimer: This post is not to bash on the brands being mentioned. This is a way of showing the lead writer’s opinion on them and if you like they go ahead so please respect the writer’s opinion while you’re at it!

I know I should have done this years ago when I first started in makeup but I felt like doing this since you know I am in a low buy I am trying to stick to but with the pandemic it’s really hard but I am doing better. The reason why this late is that there are brands that are out of my price range or if I have tried them before with an item that was a sample and don’t like it or just me that I do want to talk about it and shows how I do speak with my cards when it comes to buying. Let’s see what I got!

Sunday Riley: First up is Sunday Riley! I tried this brand all thanks to GB Plus with their Vitamin C moisturizer in one of my boxes last year and I thought it was okay even though it costs $65 and you know me with skin care you don’t have spent butt loads of money to moisturize the face or find a way of reducing wrinkles and so on. Yes, I buy Murad but I get that on discount since it is also good for my sensitive skin but Sunday Riley I am not sure about. I felt weird when I used the Vitamin C moisturizer as in it felt weird after using it and knowing I had to use it very day before it goes bad. Plus the Good Genes Lactic Acid doesn’t appeal to me at all and of course they lied about their products as in Sunday Riley workers lied on Sephora in the reviews section so that is another reason why I won’t be buying from the brand because skin care does not work overnight it takes time to work or not work and also not all products work on everyone either. That is why I read the claims before buying or choosing for my boxes.
Marc Jacobs: I remembered trying a lipstick from this brand in a birthday gift from Sephora and it was tiny and the lipstick reminded me of a Mac lipstick. I feel that sometimes if I try a very luxury brand when it comes to some makeup items I get reminded of the brands I love if it’s similar like how I said that their lipstick mini reminded me of Mac in a way and I think I remembered the lipsticks being in the $45 to $50 range like Tom Ford, which is another brand I won’t buy, and to me that is over price for something you would wear on every day.
Natasha Denona: I tried one of the eye shadows all thanks to Allure’s Beauty Box and it was just okay. I wished I put them in my answer to the pallet tag I did with the question about products that aren’t worth the hype but to be fair I only tried one shadow from this brand. I have to say about my experience with the shadow is that it was powdery and did not last throughout the day. I did not see the smudge on my makeup wipe at all from it coming from my eyes. Even though people hype this brand up but not my favorite and to me too pricey because it is around $100+. Even though there are smaller pallets but they are more than Urban Decay prices and I feel that it’s too much for me despite buying the Game of Thrones pallet last year. Still not my favorite.
KVD Vegan Beauty: I know she stepped down from her brand but Kogendo will be keeping up with the dry formula of her liquid lipsticks. I’m sorry guys but liquid lipstick should not be uncomfortable to wear on the lips and for that price as well. I felt like this brand also lost touch with the fans after what KVD said even with the most recent statements of how she blamed influencers for her downfall when she said some unfavorable things the past two years which does cause people to turn away in the first place. Again a lipstick formula should not be uncomfortable to wear on the lips, besides I have worn liquid lipsticks that felt better on my lips after tossing Echo and Wolf.

Well guys that is it for now for this post. I can’t think of any other brands but once I do I may write another post on them. What is next, new book review on the horizon! Stay tuned!
