I saw The Bad and the Boring Beauty Tag and thought it would be fun to participate so I answered 10 questions about beauty products and trends that I didn’t like. Curious to see what I answered? Then keep on reading! ๐Ÿ™‚  

The Bad & The Boring Beauty Tag was created by Swedish YouTuber, Lisa Lobotomy but I discovered this tag when I saw two of my favorite beauty bloggers The Newbury Girl and A Woman’s Confidence both do this tag.ย 

I’m normally not really participating in tags but I do really like this one and it’s a fun way to discuss different parts of the beauty community. So I thought it would be fun to participate!ย 

The Bad and The Boring Beauty Tag

The Bad and The Boring Beauty Tag

1 | A foundation finish you donโ€™t like? 

I don’t like a too matte looking foundation or a too dewy looking foundation. I’ve tried the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r foundation and it was so matte on me, it looked so cakey. When a foundation is too dewy I look so greasy and ew, I don’t like that look. So conclusion, everything with “too” before it isn’t my thing lol. 

2 | The worst mascara you have ever tried? 

I’m not sure how the particular mascara is called to be honest but I remember it being from Essence. It clumped my lashes and it overall looked horrendous. 

3 | One thing you tried once and then thrown away? 

The Colourpop So Juicy Plumping Gloss. I love Colourpop but this product was such a flop to me, I literally hated it and threw it away immediately.

4 | The most boring eyeshadow palette you own? 

This is a tough question. I have a huge eyeshadow obsession so I don’t quickly see an eyeshadow palette as boring. If I have to pick one… I think I would go for the Too Faced Neutral Eyes palette. I actually never reach for this palette because it doesn’t inspire me to create a look. 

5 | A makeup trend you think is boring and want to go away? 

I don’t like the average challenges you see on Youtube nowadays. Things like “applying my makeup with just one brush” or “doing my makeup with only concealer” or whatever. I think that’s really boring. 

6 | The worst liquid lipstick you have tried? 

This has to be Kat Von Dโ€™s (KVD Vegan Beauty now right?!) Everlasting Liquid Lipstick. It was sticky but drying but flaky. Yeah, this one didn’t work for me at all. 

7 | What color do you think is the most boring one? 

I don’t think I have I color I find boring, to be honest. I’ve been thinking about this for a while now but I just can’t come up with a shade so I say none. 

8 | What brand do you think is coming out with the most boring things? 

Too Faced. I feel like all of their launches are pretty much the same products. Sometimes they have something which grabs my attention but 90% is just the same in my opinion. 

9 | Which step in your makeup routine is the most boring one? 

Brows! I do my brows the same every single day and pretty much use the same products all the time. Applying my base (foundation, concealer powder) is slightly boring too though. 

10 | If you had to choose between: โ€“ A good base and a bad eye look or โ€“ A bad base and good eye look which one would you chose? 

100% a good base and a bad eye look. A good base is so important for your whole look and if that’s a mess already that nothing will look good in my opinion. 

If you want to participate in the Bad and The Boring Beauty Tag, please go ahead! What is a makeup trend or brand that you find boring? Please let me know in the comments below.

    I literally agree with everything you said to the point where if I did this tag most of my answers would be the same! I returned the Fenty foundation I did not like it at all.. and you’re right I find that Too Faced hasn’t put anything out in a long time that would peak my interest or motivate me to want to buy their products. Great post ๐Ÿ™‚

    • 2.15.20

      Thank you so much! Funny to hear your answers would pretty much be the same! ๐Ÿ™‚

    This was fun and a little different than most of the tags that you see because it allows you to be honest about the things that didn’t quite work out – I agree, the challenges on YouTube generally make me roll my eyes. I just don’t see the point in them besides jumping on a trend for views, quite honestly.

    • 2.18.20

      I feel the same, most of the type itโ€™s just jumping on a trend to get lots of views but I wish people wouldnโ€™t follow those trends so easily!

    This is one of the only tags that I actually enjoy reading, sometimes itโ€™s really cool and interesting to find out what people donโ€™t like and why. Itโ€™s so interesting seeing the differing opinions, some things I really agree with you and some I have different opinions on which is always interesting! Thanks for sharing!

      I think this tag was really refreshing to answer! I love how this lets you think about why you love or hate a product and how opinions can be different! Thank you for your comment lovely!

    I’ve never heard of this tag before, but I really enjoyed reading your answers! We usually mention the things we like, so I found it really refreshing to get to know your opinions about the products that missed the mark for you. I think one of the makeup trends I find boring are those highlighter, bronzer and blush sheets that were popular a while ago – I never understood the hype!

      Thatโ€™s so true, I also felt like this tag was refreshing and fun to answer! Totally agree with you on that trend, never understood the hype either!

    I like this tag because it gives us beauty gurus the chance to be totally open and honest, even if we have an unpopular opinion! I totally agree with your thoughts. Youtube is kind of dull right now in terms of beauty content. I’m using it more for fresh blogging/business tips more than anything right now.

    • 2.18.20

      Totally agree! I use YouTube for blogging tips as well as for productivity tips the most right now!

  7. 2.17.20

    I liked reading your answers, never encountered this tag before! And I definitely agree with you on the good base/bad eye look over a good eye look/bad base. The base is everything!

    I definitely agree with the Too Faced one. Their products haven’t been as good as before and the whole company gives me messy vibes. Loved this post, fun idea!

    I don’t think my comment added lol. But I definitely agree with the Too Faced comment. I find their products so boring now, plus the whole company gives messy vibes. I will forever cherish their mascara though!

    • 2.24.20

      The Too Faced mascara is amazing though! But totally agree with the messy vibes.

    I loved reading your answers to this tag! Mine, yours and The Newbury Girl’s answers all seemed really similar. I fully agree with Too Faced. They have some lovely products but so many of them are uninspired and just meh. I can’t imagine having a bad base but good eyes??? No thanks lol
