  • Most Overrated: [answer]
  • Most Underrated: [answer]

My Picks

  • Most Overrated: MAC Ruby Woo — SOOOOO dry!!
  • Most Underrated: I’d say either MAC Viva Glam I, which is a fab retro red, or Chanel Dragon — hey, it was DISCONTINUED. Surely if it was super popular they’d have kept it!! :)

  • Most Overrated: [answer]
  • Most Underrated: [answer]

My Picks

  • Most Overrated: Maybe Philosophy’s Purity, though I don’t know if it’s really a makeup remover so much as it is a cleanser–I like it as a cleanser but it doesn’t get rid of every last trace of makeup as effectively as other removers.
  • Most Underrated: Cleansing oils in general–I know Bobbi Brown, MAC, shu all make them–because I find they remove pretty much all makeup and cleanse the skin at once.

Over & Under: Most Overrated & Underrated Nail Polish Formula

  • Most Overrated: [answer]
  • Most Underrated: [answer]

My Picks

  • Most Overrated: MAC, easily. The color options are usually less-than-unique and the formula is so unpredictable, but too often, it’s a miss.
  • Most Underrated: China Glaze–they’re popular in various niches, but I don’t think they’ve reached as much of mass as entrenched salon brands like OPI. Like I’ve never met anyone who uses anything but OPI in my “real” life.

My Picks

  • Most Overrated: Burt’s Bees–do not like this product at all! Super drying for me.
  • Most Underrated: I don’t know if I can say Jack Black Lip Balm, because it’s probably getting to the point where there’s enough buzz on it that it’ll be an option for “overrated.”

  • Most Underrated: Jack Black Hand Healer! Fantastic stuff. I have a big jug of it on my desk, LOL!
