Clinique dramatically different moisturizer - meh. Might as well put water on my skin. Does nothing dramatic for me!

Also, Maybelline Great Lash. What??? The most over-hyped mascara. Very un-great. One of the least effective mascaras on me.

How about you? What "fabulous" "terrific" famous products fail completely for you?
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Protein sensitive
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Experimenting with cones & sulfates while the dews are high.
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
For me it would be MAC foundation and concealers, it just does not sit well on my face regardless of primers or prep. It almost separates on my face into flaky, dry pigment and oil... never had that happen before.

Love MAC's eyeshadows though!

Curly Pearl: That Clinique moisturizer used to work great on my skin, but something changed last year and now it really does NOTHING at all! I had to switch to a new moisturizer.
3A-3B / Medium / High Density / Low Porosity
Modified CG
Low poo: Creme of Nature Argan Oil Moisture & Shine
Conditioner: Curls Unleashed NB
Leave in: Creme of Natura Argan Oil Strengthen & Shine
Styling Product: Curl Keeper/ Curly Solutions gel
That's interesting. Everyone raves about MAC foundations. Maybe it's because of their confusing but seductive color scheme numbers. Are you NW ? C? CW? Just kidding, but you get the idea. Like curl types - we all want to know which type we are!

For what it's worth, I was cast as NW15 in one MAC place and a C in another. I didn't buy either one - thought the foundation was very thick and gloppy.

I think MAC foundations are their least favorite products. There is one that I universally hear raved about and it is Face and Body (found in every pro makeup artists kit), but it's supposedly a bear to work with. It separates easily in temperature changes and you have to keep rubbing to get the great flawless finish.

I hate Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizer. My mom has used it for years. I had to get the green version when I was a teen. The standard yellow DM burned my skin and left it dry.

I'm really not a huge fan of Clinique or Estee Lauder skin care products. I don't notice that they do much, they are expensive, and I always have a reaction after reformulation.

When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

For me, that would be hard question to answer as there'd be too many LOL! Suffice it to say that I have pretty reactive skin, and a particular type of coloring that one would think that a good amount of makeup shades would work, but don't. So I have to stick to a fairly narrow range of both skin care and makeup products. One good thing about that - I'm not spending boatloads of money on either LOL!
