    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 💖💗💕

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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 😘💋😍❤️❤️❤️

    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

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

  • Cats*in*a*cradle
    Cats*in*a*cradle Month 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 Month ago

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

  • Michelle Lewis
    Michelle Lewis Month 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! 🎄🎁❤❤🎵🎶

    sunnystace81 Month 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!

    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 Month 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

    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

    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 Month 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.

    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

  • Youa Lee

    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 Month 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

    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 Month 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....

  • Dana Voyles
    Dana Voyles Month ago

    I can use the UD concealer if I mix a smidge on top of another concealer. I won’t be repurchasing it. The Becca be a light palette, huda foundation (luckily I only had a sample of that) were a bust for me and I think I’m the only one who didn’t like the ND gold palette. I felt like the shimmers weren’t anything super exciting. I loved the mattes but I wasn’t going to keep a $129 palette for the mattes ya know? It’s funny how everyone’s taste in makeup is so different!

  • Jaiden Sanchez
    Jaiden Sanchez Month ago

    The ND safari palette was amazing for me..I had no issues with any shades...in your video with it your lids looked pretty dry maybe you got a bad one because every review I have seen besides yours they worked fine ...

    I agree about the Beauty Bakerie foundation. My skin is combo/ normal but in hot weather I’m oily and I had to use oil...and it oxidized on me. I wanted to love it. I was disappointed about the Aaliyah x MAC collection as well!

    The Natasha Denona Safari Palette is one of my favorites. I saw your video on it but thankfully it did not perform that way for me. I would have returned mine if it was like that one. My worst product is the Surrat Perfectionniste Concealer Palette. Boy what a waste of money.

    I really like the UD all nighter concealer and I’m in my 50’s, but hey, that’s why there are so many products out there. We all have different expectations from make up. I don’t always agree with your thoughts but I do respect your right to your opinion and I enjoy hearing them. I’ve tried quite a few things on your recommendation and really like them.

    Loved this so much. Out of context but your phone background is 👌 I was in Marshall's here in Canada and it was full of KVD palettes and her makeup, I'm so confused at what's going on with her line. It makes me sad. It would be amazing to see an all synthetic brushes video from you, the ones you think are as good as real hair brushes!

    I really regret purchasing the ND Lila palette. My Bad Habit and my BhCosmetics palettes are just as good. I didn’t like the Bh cosmetics foundation but mine was the wrong shade I may like it better if it was the right color. No big deal it was inexpensive.

  • Melissa Lara

    Agree almost 100%, but I gotta say, the DE eye cream is SO good for me! I think skincare is super dependent on body chemistry though. I definitely recommend it often, as long as someone isn't allergic to vitamin c products.

    and, yeah, I'm still salty I finally tried the MJ genius gel foundation and loved it.. to find them discontinuing it like two fucking months later, for the shameless one. It's shameful how bad the shameless is.
    I'm also still grateful for your 'safari' review. That was finally the ND palette for me.. beautiful cool tones, nice neutral and everyday shades and ALL matte - I'd have been super disappointed and never given them another shot.
