The Struggle Is Real!!

I love a good beauty product, but there are some I really hate using or just cannot get along with. Thankfully, only a short list of things I struggle with in the beauty world, but I'm hoping I'm not the only one who has problems with these things!

Show me some love in the comments, so I know I'm not alone!

It's sticky, runny, get's all in my hair and, never stays in place. I hate the texture of this so much. I find the only kind of lipgloss I can work with is matte ones. Anything that shimmery, plumps or has glitter in it is a massive HELL NAW. I always manage to smudge it within seconds of applying it, and it comes off at the slightest touch of a straw, drink or food. Plus getting it on food makes me want to gag something chronic!

Oh so pretty and I love how so many of you girls can apply this. But when I do - irregardless of the brand or product type - it looks naff. I either put a generous amount on me and it barely shows up, or I slather myself in it, and barely shine. Maybe it's my skin type or just how I'm putting it on - but it just doesn't work for me.

Beauty Blenders
Where do I start with this one? For applying face/body paint for comic con, they work wonders. For attempting foundation and concealer... Awful. I've tried both wet and dry and neither works for me. Wet/damp just smears it around my face, and dry it manages to do half a cheek and then I have to apply five or six times as much foundation as I would when using my brushes. Can't get along with a beauty blender, no mater the amount of brands I've tried - all were crap for me!

Do any of you struggle with these same things? And if so, any tips on how to help me out!? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

  1. Lip...anything haha! It doesn't matter if it's famous for lasting 100 hours or not, it will look le poo after an hour! I would love to have awesome lip colors but I don't have the time to fix them once every hour xD

    It's fun to read others struggles. Like the beauty blender for me is the other way around, I always had trouble with especially my foundation until I finally tried a beauty blender, now I can't live without them hehe.

    1. I struggle to get an even coverage and it NEVER lasts longer than a drink for me!! I cannot get on with a blender for the life of me, so I've given up with them now! xx

  2. I have the same problem with lip glosses that aren't matte, but I love some anyway and wear them. As for beauty blenders - I totally feel ya there. I have tried these and I just don't understand how people use them so effortlessly. I have one left in my drawer so I'll give them another go but I can't see how I'll change my mind. Great post by the way, I love seeing things people don't get along with.

    1. Thanks for checking the post out Hayley! :) I've only got a few beauty blenders now for comic con body paints, but just can't get along with them for makeup! xx

  3. Hi Tania! I don't have problems with my highlighters, but this tip might help you: Use a wet brush to apply your highlighter or dip in the pan and then wet the brush with a spray. Maybe this will help! I've seen a lot of YouTubers do this trick!


    1. Hey there!! Oh I shall give that a try next time I give it a go! I just want to show some shiny cheekbones! xx

  4. but what's the point of matte lipgloss? it's not lipgloss anymore... I like the way it looks, but I can only wear it if I put my hair in a bun or braid it. I'm done struggling with hair and sticking to lipgloss.
    I think I do good with highlighter, although I did go overboard with it couple of times.
    beauty sponges are my favorite way of applying foundation so I can't relate..
    however, I struggle a lot with eyeliners. there's no way I can do a good eyeliner/wing with ANY type or brand... :(
    I thought this would be a post about exact products, but I'm glad it's this :D

    1. I've never understood matte lipgloss, it's pointless! I wish I was better with highlighter though, as it looks amazing on everyone and I need that skill! So glad you enjoyed the post :) xx

  5. My heart hurts a little bit. I don't care for lipstick but lip gloss is my A game.

    I don't understand highlighters so...I feel you!

    1. I'm good with lip stains as they don't feel tacky to me - but I wish I could do lipstick! xx
