We’ve all heard of those beauty products that are raved about online – the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette, NARS Sheer Glow foundation, Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara… However, there are so many beauty products out there that don’t receive the attention they deserve. Today I’ll be sharing 5 of my favourite products that are seriously underrated.
Seriously Underrated Product 1 – Benefit Girl Meets Pearl Liquid Highlighter
The Benefit Girl Meets Pearl Liquid Highlighter has always been overshadowed by its cream-counterpart, the Watt’s Up Highlighter. This is such a shame as Girl Meets Pearl is one of the most beautiful highlighters that I own yet no one seems to mention it! Girl Meets Pearl comes in a champagne-gold shade that looks beautiful on pale skin and is packed with skin-loving ingredients. It’s really easy to blend and it just gives the most gorgeous natural-looking (yet buildable) glow to the high points of your face. You can see what it looks like applied to my skin in my full review post. The product can also be applied all over the face for an all over glow.
Seriously Underrated Product 2 – Eylure Brow Magician
So much attention is given to Eylure’s (admittedly amazing) eyelash range which means that their eyebrow range is often overlooked. I first came across the Eylure Brow Magician when I collaborated with Eylure on a post back in June and have used and loved the product ever since! The Brow Magician is a dual-ended product with a long-wear crayon on one end and a pigmented brow mascara on the other end. This is absolutely perfect when you’re rushed for time as it’s so quick and easy to shape, define and set your brows in place.
Seriously Underrated Product 3 – Eylure Brow Pomade
Yep, this is another brow product from Eylure which I couldn’t resist including! The Eylure Brow Pomade has been a life-saver (in brow terms) on those days when my brows look a bit messy. The Brow Pomade is waterproof and it’s also really long-lasting, making it great for summer. It comes in 3 shades – blonde, mid-brown and dark-brown and I’ve found that the blonde shade is a perfect match for my brows. For just £8.95, this is definitely worth picking up and shouting about!
Seriously Underrated Product 4 – Milani Retouch + Erase Light Lifting Concealer
Milani is a brand that I only discovered earlier this year, and my only wish is that I’d tried their products out sooner! The Retouch + Erase Light Lifting Concealer is seriously one of the best concealers I have ever tried and it’s replaced my trusty old Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer as my everyday go-to concealer. The product has such good coverage so it’s great for covering up any blemishes, but it’s also creamy enough to work well underneath my eyes. I’m yet to try a concealer I love more than this!
Seriously Underrated Product 5 – Topshop Bronzer in ‘Mohawke’
Any fellow fair skinned girls will undoubtedly be familiar with the struggle to find a bronzer that’s pale enough to leave you with a natural bronzed look, as opposed to a muddy-looking mess. The Topshop Bronzer in the shade ‘Mohawke’ is a matte bronzer that blends out really nicely on the skin and leaves even the palest of us looking like bronzed goddesses. You can see it in action in my ‘subtle contour‘ blog post. As with most Topshop Beauty products, this product isn’t always available – Topshop tend to bring lots of their makeup items in and out of stock every few months. However, I’d highly recommend grabbing this when you next see it around!
