Worst Buys of the Year

Worst Buys of the Year

My stress-binge-shopping this quarter has been a little worse than before. I blame the endless hurricane that linked the LSAT, job applications, and midterms together. While some of the shopping relieved my stress, I had the misfortune of reevaluating some products that ended up making me regret more than enjoy. Here are a few run-ins I had so you don't make the same mistakes I did.

Milk Makeup - Cooling Water

 

Apparently this product is supposed to cool your undereyes and depuffs to enhance your skin and microcirculation. I feel scammed because this felt like I rubbed a semi-minty gluestick around my face. Not only did this product not do whatever it claimed to, it made my face feel cakey and didn't even make it past the first cut to be in my nightly skincare routine. For $24, I could list billions of products I'd buy instead.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye

Undereye concealers are a true hit or miss. Paired with setting powders and my generally sensitive undereyes that are plagued with unending bags, I have a high standard for these products. Really, the only product I like for this is Tarte's Shape Tape but I decided to try this since it had such glowing reviews. Well, it was all a lie. The concealer is very heavy coverage but it tends to cake and doesn't blend into your skin at all whether you use a soft brush or a beauty blender.

Harper Marina Denim Skinny Jeans

Here continues the chronicles of Yeju Can't Find Jeans that Work for Short People. These looked fine because they had an incredibly short leg cut. I'm also a huge fan of distressed jeans. But the problem with these jeans? It has the strangest waist line. It's right in that awkward torso area where it's not high-rise, mid-rise, and definitely not low-rise. The waistband is therefore super annoying and confusing. The sizing is strange too, so unless you have body proportions exactly like the model pictured, these jeans are gonna suck.
