    Thanks for this post. Hilarious. Can’t say which made me laugh more. The firm flesh stick or your angry swatching.

    I have 2 Drunk Elephant products. No eye cream! That was a horrible experience! I do like the moisturizer but I do think it is expensive but I really do like the way the product is dispersed. Mel I love you but if we tied your hands when you are talking you couldn’t talk, but I love that you are so expressive! Love ya!! Thanks 🙏

    I’m late with the comment a little bit but I really like KVD palette. I’m glad I bought it without looking the reviews:)
    However, Karl L palette I knew it’s bad when I saw it was 50% off in a shop that has the shittiest discounts

    Truly I wasted my money on Becca power, look cakey on my skin and after 3 month I opened it again , no cool feeling at all, I had used it for about 3 times, my money 😂

    For beauty bakerie..like any other foundation not everything works for everyone..I didnt need the oil and i wasnt going to sit and buy a new prep product

  • Kaaariii Shaaabiii
    Kaaariii Shaaabiii 7 months ago

    This is what I'm afraid of... trying something new and breaking out or get rash all over my face! I need to try other products but I'm broke lol. So I mostly stick to my usual drug store and samples lol. Love you Mel 💖💗💕

  • Jennifer Sattler
    Jennifer Sattler 7 months ago

    I loved the ND gold pallet so much I gave Safari a chance (as I was new to the brand and prefer mattes more often). They’re both my favorite palettes I own. I wear the Safari to work all the time. I’m a nurse, so I work long shifts and sweat a fair amount; my eye shadow always stays in place and doesn’t melt into a mess like many others. Maybe I got lucky or my skin suits the formula, because it’s a dream for me...

  • Nina Mulic
    Nina Mulic 7 months ago

    Haha this is so funny to me because I love love love the All nighter concealer and it’s the only one I use. :) It really isn’t that bad, there are worse concealers. I love it for me.

    I would just like to add that I hate the Kat Von D lash liner! What a gimmick waste of money. If so many people are complaining about irritated eyes and that it doesn't deliver then it can't be that great and it can't be just me who hates it.

  • Fanny Mae

    I actually found you through your mac syntethic brush review :D and subbed instintly. Those brushes are so bad. I regret selling most of my backups of the originals, since I thought I could get new ones whenever! Shit still stings me

    I’m behind... I didn’t realize MAC went synthetic on their brushes. I’m both excited and sad... I’m so disappointed that you say the quality isn’t there - it makes me want to skip them now.

  • Shannon Reynolds
    Shannon Reynolds 8 months ago

    I’m still waiting on your video about the new Sonja G brushes and I completely agree with your opinion on the Mac brushes did you try the Karl Larger felled blush?? I adore it but in my local area. I’m the only one I know of that does like it and then as far as my clients anyone over thirty doesn’t seem to care for it. I’m 47 and I loved it until the autumn dryness showed up on my face 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ As Always Much Love toYou 😘💋😍❤️❤️❤️

  • Natasha Nizam
    Natasha Nizam 8 months ago

    I wanted to try the huda foundation but maybe not lol! xox

  • Nihilism Is the Only Way

    lol. "must not work for you because you're old" 😂😂😂 most likely written by a trolling 12 yo!!!
    oh my gosh. its almost adorable when you think about it! 😂

  • Jennifer Smith
    Jennifer Smith 8 months ago

    Wow I can’t believe that comment regarding the concealer. But that’s how I feel about shape tape. I bought it and was so excited like so excited. And I put it on and I looked like I was 80 years old. It was horrible. And I didn’t understand how everybody loves this concealer. Just goes to show that everything works for everyone

  • Kamila W
    Kamila W 8 months ago

    The flesh thick stick comment made me laught. You are so funny

  • Alicia Hadden
    Alicia Hadden 8 months ago

    The Flesh stick was the absolute worst! I couldn't agree more. It was so bad I would probably never try another single one of their products ever....🤭

  • Ocean Equestrian
    Ocean Equestrian 8 months ago

    DESPISED the Too Faced White Chocolate Chip palette... 0 pigment and no color payoff

  • Michelle Lewis
    Michelle Lewis 8 months ago

    The Flesh product was a total joke. Nars Climaxx was a bust for me, as was their luminous foundation. Laura Mercier has a foundation this year that sucked so bad! Nude stix was hit and miss and Colour Pop had some lipsticks that dried out my lips worse than liquid lipstick does. Thankfully there were more good than bad products this year for me. Merry Christmas to uou and yours! 🎄🎁❤❤🎵🎶

    I got the 10 year anniversary kvd train case and brushes and was so disappointed in the quality 😞

  • sunnystace81
    sunnystace81 8 months ago

    Uggggghhhhh yep that Becca powder was probably my biggest fail product for the year. I looked like an old hag as soon as I dusted it on my face! It was cakey and drying and awful! Totally not worth the gimmick!

  • Anna Alvarado
    Anna Alvarado 8 months ago

    Hey Mel, what lip color are you wearing? looks so gorgeous on you

  • KrysDior
    KrysDior 8 months ago

    The Aaliyah collection was BEYOND disappointing !

  • sourkaramel
    sourkaramel 8 months ago

    Did I love this video? Yes. Did I have to stop a few minutes in to look for those earrings and get heartbroken that there weren’t on the site? Also yes.

  • De's Edit
    De's Edit 8 months ago

    I had a reaction to the DE eye cream too! I wasn’t aware I had any allergies until this product. It’s the vitamin C derived from Kakadu plum. Had same reaction to Dermadoctor vitamin C. Using this plum is starting to be a trend because it’s more potent and marketable. Even natural brands like Herbivore have it.

  • Agnes Chan
    Agnes Chan 8 months ago

    omg I had the same reaction for C Tango!!!!! I just can't believe it cause it supposed to be a very green product!!!!! WHYYYYY

  • Angela Pennington
    Angela Pennington 8 months ago

    A LOT of people didn't like the Beauty Bakery foundation!

  • Serena D
    Serena D 8 months ago

    Cant wait for your 2018 favourite products video! Can you recommend a brush that would be similar to the Mac 221? I love the shape for crease work but am so bummed that MACs quality went downhill. Thanks

  • Elisekimopie
    Elisekimopie 8 months ago

    Thank you for another great video. I totally agree with the Drunk Elephant eye cream. I hated it and it caused a reaction every single time I used it! And the worse thing about it is that it wasn’t even moisturizing! Returned. Thanks again for your opinion on the year in beauty.

  • mugglefix 1996
    mugglefix 1996 8 months ago

    Lol $25 for that eyeshadow. WTF! I have to say that at first I did like the Huda beauty foundation until I noticed that my face looked differently. I was freaking out and I never used it again. I initially thought it was the primer until I saw other UScliprs complaining about it. At least I'm not alone... xD

    Shemac14 8 months ago

    Somebody else that hated the urban decay all nighter concealer. I hated it. It oxidized, creased and was flaky. It was absolutely terrible. On top of that, it dried out my skin and caused my skin to flake.

  • Kemsari
    Kemsari 8 months ago +1

    When do people start to understand, that everyone has a different skin and EVERY product works different on another person? If something works perfectly on me and a youtuber would make a video saying that she/he did not like it and it did not work on her/him, i would never write a ranty comment. I do not know what people get out of doing that.... If you do not have something nice to say, just say nothing!
    That being said, i really enjoy watching your videos

    I am intrigued at how awesome you are and wish you was my Baby to love and pamper each day, and keep dressed and looking like a Living Doll. That ensemble is so pretty and fitting your figure perfectly, turning me on so much as my heart begins to race and my loins begin to ache with lust.

  • all things delightful
    all things delightful 8 months ago

    Mel you are correct on that mini sunset. I thought it was just me that thought the formulation was awful. Still mad at myself for getting that piece of crap. Horrible to use. Now I loved the KVD palette and bought a back up. Oh well.

  • Beth Lilly
    Beth Lilly 8 months ago

    KVD anniversary....if there was ever a time I shoulda retuned a product...this woulda been it! It was so disappointing and lackluster!
    I really love the color story of Safari...those $$$ palettes should preform! Actually all palettes should preform ....how do shades that totally suck even make it into a palette. Who signs off on approving crappy formulas that just don’t work. I wonder sometimes if some products are even actually tested on eyes and not just swatched only.
    One of my big disappointing purchases was Norvina ....those satin/sheen/micro-shimmer infused mattes pissed me off! They make my blend appear muddy and just kinda murky and messy. Thinking about it, the shimmers were also kinda problematic & inconsistent. Overall it just doesn’t feel as well thought out and curated as ABH palettes normally do....

    I used to really like BECCA but it seems they went off track and their new products are just gimmicks
