My Picks

  • Most Overrated: DiorShow – I could never quite get it to look as amazing as others made it seem; it just blackened lashes but didn’t add enough thickening/lengthening for me.
  • Most Underrated:  Bare Escentuals Buxom Lash – it’s something I reach for all the time for whenever I want really long lashes.  It doesn’t thicken at all, but it lengthens so well and never clumps.  It’s a great mascara to layer with, too.

My Picks

  • Most Overrated: Urban Decay Primer Potion — the original formula creases on me, though Eden doesn’t, but the creasing was a major let-down, so it was obviously not the primer for me!
  • Most Underrated: NARS Smudgeproof, I suppose; it’s hard to say, because it’s a primer by a major brand, so it doesn’t seem like an underrated product, but it is a newer entrant to the marketplace, so perhaps it can still fit.
