Five Hyped Products I Never Use

The thing with bandwagons is that I’m all too eager to jump on them if something cute is involved, and the problem with that is that my bank balance doesn’t always like this.

There are always new products hitting the marketplace that we all think are the best thing since sliced bread, and we all rush to get our hands on them thinking that they’re gonna be total game-changers, and I’m definitely not immune to this, and here are a few that spring to mind..

Fuji Instax

I bought the Hello Kitty Instax camera from a friend a few years ago, but I’ve only ever had to change the film once – that’s how rarely I use it. Its not that I don’t like it, its just that I never think to take it out with me, and the refill film is kinda pricey so I don’t want to waste shots. I do wonder if I’d’ve used it more had it been a regular Instax Mini, rather than the Hello Kitty version, but even still I’m not sure..

Eyelash curler

I know people who practically live by the mantra of ‘mascara, curl, repeat’, but having owned an eyelash curler for a few years now, I think I’ve only ever used it once.

Primer

Beauty lovers everywhere are probably gonna go nuts over this one, but I never use primer before doing my makeup. I do own Benefit’s Porefessional primer, but I tend to use that as a standalone product on days that I can’t be bothered to wear foundation and just want to blur out my pores a bit, but as a base product, nope!

Happiness Planner

Don’t get me wrong, I do love my Happiness Planner – I love the way it looks and I do love filling it in, I just find that I never remember to do it! Its just not part of my regular routine, and as much as I’d love it to be, I just never think about it.

Rainbow highlighter

As a self-confessed highlighter addict, you’d think that I’d jump at the opportunity to use a pretty highlighter, but I just never do.. I have the Unicorn Heart highlighter from I Heart Makeup, but I guess its just not really my thing, or at least it doesn’t look how I thought it might and I was a little disappointed.

  1. I have an eyelash curler, but never use it either and I probably should considering my lashes are quite straight! The rainbow highlighter looks pretty, but I couldn’t imagine using it xx

  2. So glad to see someone else say this about the Instax and the Happiness Planner! I have both and just couldn’t get on with them. Maybe it was because I had the big Instax, not the mini, so it was incredibly bulky to carry around but the film is also really expensive and I was never happy with the quality of the images. I liked the planner, but I soon forgot to fill it in, I’ve not thrown it out though as it doesn’t have the dates printed in it so there’s always a voice in the back of my head saying I might find a use for it again that stops me!
