  • Most Underrated: [answer]

My Picks

  • Most Overrated: NARS and Tarte; while I like both, neither wears all-day long on me. I had higher expectations for both!
  • Most Underrated: Le Metier de Beaute’s blush formula is really soft, smooth, and long-wearing–I wish they had more shades. Tom Ford’s range is excellent, too, though I see enough raves on it that I don’t think it’s underrated.

My Picks

  • Most Overrated: MAC Lipglass — it feels less refined compared to other glosses on the market as formulas have been improved and redone in the past 5-10 years. It’s a good formula, but gloss doesn’t have to be as thick or as sticky to wear as well anymore.
  • Most Underrated: Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lipglosses–it’s like MAC Dazzleglass and Chanel Glossimers but better. So shimmery!

My Picks

  • Most Overrated: NARS’ Pencil Eyeliners — their original ones, not the recently released Larger Than Life ones; they smeared EVERYWHERE.
  • Most Underrated: Tarina Tarantino’s Hyper Dream Eyeliners. Amazing and only $15.

My Picks

  • Most Overrated: MAC Boot Black — I was always a much bigger fan of their Liquidlasts (now discontinued) over their regular liquid eyeliner.
  • Most Underrated: MUFE or Stila’s new eyeliners; I like the shade ranges, and I really like the applicator on MUFE’s.

  • Most Underrated: [answer]

My Picks

  • Most Overrated: Nothing is coming to mind — I really like a lot of the popular ones, and none of them have felt like they were unduly praised, even if they weren’t my HG, they were still good!
  • Most Underrated: My favorites are Guerlain Parure Gold and Lingerie de Peau, though I don’t know if I’d really say they’re underrated so much as they’re pricey, so not as many people are willing to try them!

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

My Picks

  • Most Overrated: It bums me out to say it, but MAC. They CAN make an excellent eyeshadow, but after trying so many more brands, a lot of their eyeshadows fall flat. There are many that are great, but there are a fair amount of duds, too.
  • Most Underrated: Bare Escentuals Ready is so dense, buttery, and smooth–excellent pigmentation, too–and was a total surprise to me. I’m also a huge fan of Tarina Tarantino’s eyeshadow formula for the same reasons.
