Beauty Products I Hate

I actually don't like to use the word hate but it's part of the idea and I have seen bloggers did this kind of post so. Being someone who is obsessed with beauty products, trying and testing them out means coming across products that I love and "oh so incredible" and also products that I less love that is a no go. So today, I decided to share with you a few products specifically from the drugstore that I hate and I regret buying them.

Beauty Products I Hate

Disclaimer: this is a hundred percent my honest and true opinion so please don't get offended if you love these products. I'm still new to this type of post. What can I say? Different things work for different people, no? BTW, this post contains endless rants, so please bear with me. 

Catrice Waterproof Eyeliner Pen

OMG. I seriously want this product to work out but no bueno. Okay, first thing first. It's somehow difficult to apply, I mean I had a tough time to achieve my wing liner with this bad boy. It has weird tip to me and it didn't want to work out. The product also doesn't want to come out out of the tube, it seems empty even though I just bought it. I don't know, maybe I got the bad one or the expired one? I don't know. You actually have to press harder to get the product out and that just messes up your whole look.

The eyeliner also has a weak staying power. You know I have a long day at school so I want my liner to stay put throughout the whole day but NAH. It disappears into the thin air. Maybe because I have a greasy eyelid but a lot of waterproof eyeliners I have tried in the past never disappear like that. By the time I reached home and go to the bathroom to like check my face out, the liner is all gone and that's not cute. I just don't have anything positive to say about this eyeliner. It's such a crappy product that dries out too quickly and doesn't want to work out and I don't recommend you guys to grab this eyeliner. Better save your money even though this is not pricey, but better splurge on something that works well. I know IN2IT and Maybelline have quite a number of dreamy eyeliners. Check them out instead and don't buy this.

Revlon Colorstay Shadowlinks

I bought these for about a year I believe. I got them on sale so lots of good deals going on back then BUT these are just the worst. It's not just I'm not getting any pigment but they are just too chalky, sheer and tough to blend. It has a very rough texture, it's weird. Once you get the product on your eyes, every single colors will look the same. They have a very low staying power too. It stays on me for like couple of hours and then they start to fade. It's such a turn off, am I right? I wouldn't recommend any of these because they are just not that great in quality. I really wished it has a creamy texture and melts into your skin type of texture, it would have definitely been a hit for me. Maybelline and Essence have some really creamy and pigmented eyeshadows to try out!

IN2IT BB Makeup Cream 5 in 1

Don't get me wrong, I love the brand, I'm digging their eyeliners, blushers and lip products. They are incredible. But this one is just a no no. It's a BB cream so I expected it to perform very comfortable on the skin, lightweight and easy to blend but it doesn't do any of that. The consistency is pretty thick almost like a foundation and it doesn't want to blend well. I do get a lot of patchiness using this BB cream and it looks terrible and super cakey on some areas. It also accentuates my fine lines and my smile lines after applying for a few minutes and that's not cute, gurl. 

They also carry like 2 or 3 shades in this range which is shitty shade range. Overall, it's not a good BB cream at all, it's a strong pass. I wouldn't recommend to you guys. Go for Maybelline instead. You can't go wrong with Maybelline.

I guess that's all for now. I hope I didn't offend anyone, it's just my opinion and don't you think it's good to actually be honest about the products you love or hate? All in all, I definitely wouldn't repurchase any of these craps and I hope this post helped you any other way!

Has anyone tried any of these products? What are your thoughts about them? And what other disappointing drugstore beauty products would you highlight? Let me know in the comments! x

A List Of My Daily Essentials

I am actually quite a fan of seeing people's essentials. I don't know, it seems fun to me. So I thought I would put together a list of some of my day to day essentials. There are just some things in life that I cannot live without. Okay, maybe a little exaggeration is going on over there but seriously I totes would die if I did not have the following items. Haha! What an exaggeration but as long as you get gist. 

Here's a list of things I use and need every single day of my existence, if you will.

A List Of My Daily Essentials | Lenne Zulkiflly

My phone | Come on, this one is surely other people's first pick too. I seriously cannot live without my phone. No but seriously, I am one of those people who gets anxious if their phone dies in the middle of the day. Gotta need my phone in my everyday life. Plus my favorite persons live in there too.

A 1 litre water bottle | Yes gurl. Otherwise,  I would be super dehydrated and people legit think I am dying. It is actually a 1.3 litre water bottle that I bought from Tesco - it helps so much.

Notebooks | I am that  girl who constantly jotting down notes, thoughts and ideas that pop into my little mind. I just love it. I love to see my beautiful handwriting. #SelfPraise #NoShame

Vaseline lotions | OMG I owned like 4 of them because I cannot get enough of their lotion especially the cocoa one. Oh my gosh, it smells SO GOOD. The one I am currently digging is the aloe vera one because I am obsessed with everything aloe vera.

Aloe vera gel | No surprise. I really love this and cannot go a day without putting this aloe gel on my face before I go to bed.

Some of the things I need. PS: I forgot about the water bottle but whatevs

Lip products | Be it lip balm, regular lipstick or liquid lipstick, I just need them. My natural lip color is so pale and it looks like I am dying. So I really need an extra help from the lippie department. I seriously cannot go my day without wearing any lip products, which is why I have so many in my collection. Haha! 

Perfume | Ahh I just love smelling good. I love smelling good all the time. I have quite a number of perfumes and it is a little bit too much actually but what can I say, I am obsessed with smelling good all freaking time. My current favorite scent is Someday by Justin Bieber. Oh so good. So good.

My contact lens kit | Need I say more? Gotta have this in everyday life, gurl. It contains a small mirror, contact lens case, contact lens rewetting drops and tissue in it.

And that concludes my list of "shit I need on a day to day basis to actually survive". Now you know the things I cannot live without and now it is your turn to tell me what's yours!

What would be in your everyday life essentials? What are the things you can't live without?

Beauty Products I Have Been Eyeing On

Hello lovely people! I thought it would be fun to talk about some of the beauty products that I have been eyeing on for quite some time. But before that, I would like to apologize for not uploading my Five Things In February mainly because I have nothing to do rather than being a busy bee for the rest of the month. So, sorry 'bout that!

Okay, back on to business. I keep things that I have been lusting on my phone because I always tend to forget things that I want. I have quite a bunch of lists from beauty to stationery. So with that being said, let's get down to business.

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation | I have heard nothing but good reviews about this foundation and I really want to try it out myself. I have been eyeing quite a lot of foundations from the drugstore brand to the more high-end brand and somehow I always go back to this one. This foundation is also oil free which is a winner in my eyes since I have oily skin.

Elf Studio Baked Highlighter | I have seen this baby swatched by a lot of Youtubers and I'm obsessed! It has other few beautiful shades than the one I have linked. I have never used Elf products before but Elf recently stepped up their makeup game - that's what they said. I want to experience it myself. I owned quite a number of highlighters already but I can't get enough of it. Just no. 

Nars Laguna Bronzer | Okay, I'm not the bronzer type of girl. I owned like only 2 bronzers in my collection that I rarely pick up. But this one, gurl. It's so stunning! Sophie (Sophia Chang) really made me want to try this one out. It's pretty much the perfect bronzer - that's what they said. I really need to get my hands on this because my face is seriously need some definition.

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color  | Oooh gurl, you don't have any idea how many times I have swatched this on the back of my hand every time I go to the drugstore. It smells SO good! I have watched Judy's review on Youtube and it makes me want to buy it even more but I don't know why I haven't taken the plunge and bought it yet. Maybe because the shade range is just stunning and I want to grab them all but I can't. They even have new beautiful shades! Oh I'm so getting this and will do a review for you guys. 

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer | I owe it all to Sophie once again. Haha! This is her favorite concealer. I want to try it so bad because the coverage is pretty on point.

NYX Liquid Suede | I have heard amazing things about NYX, especially their lip products. They are highly pigmented and just so you know, Hermo is now carrying these on their website and I might actually buy them. A lot of them. 

Zoeva Brush Set - Eye Set | If I were to get my hands on this brush set, I'm the happiest girl on the planet earth. I have lusted over this for the longest time already. The brushes are so stunning and great quality. Chloe (Chloe Morello) actually love to use Zoeva brushes in a lot of her videos! 

MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lip Color  | I believe this is not-so-new in MAC but I haven't gotten the chance to own any of them yet. I have seen lots of Youtubers reviewed and swatched these babies and I have fallen in love. Jeffree Star reviewed and swatched these liquid lip color recently and I was shook! I want them even more, they are so pigmented and the shade "So Me" is just BEAUTIFUL. The applicator is actually very nice too!

Colourpop Lippie Stix | MY MOST WANTED LIP PRODUCTS. Hands down. I have wanted to get my hands on these for so long! Their Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks are not my cup of tea although they have quite a lot of beautiful shades because it's so very drying. Anyway, a lot of Youtubers raved about this Lippie Stix okay. The shade range is just incredible. The shade "Brink" and "Lumiere" are few of my favorites. You can't go wrong with Colourpop because it's affordable and pretty top notch.

There you have it! I have pretty much a mixture of drugstore and high-end beauty products that I have been lusting. I still have a lot of them but I guess I should stop now because it's going to be a long post and I don't want to bore you guys too much. 

Has anyone tried any of the products mentioned? Aaand do you have beauty products that you have been eyeing on? Let me know! xx
