Worst in Beauty 2019 – Bottom 10 Products

By Kimberly

It’s time for the worst in Beauty for 2019. Few things suck worse than spending hard-earned money on an awful product. Whether low-end, mid-range, high-end, or luxury, any money spent is a bad deal when the product is terrible. I really could call this article the 10 Worst Beauty Deals of 2019. The more you spend the more disappointed you are when there is no return on your investment. It is also the reason we are more forgiving when drugstore products let us down but feel more disappointed when a high-end product is a bust. This is why high-end and luxury products make these lists more than drugstore items. Some are just not a fit, but others are universally bad. Okay, nothing is universally good or bad, but some products come close. Of all the products I tried this year, I selected my ten least favorite. I limited the list to products I tried for the first time this year. Deal shoppers do not always try things the moment they release, so these things did not all launch in 2019.

Empties: Finished Product Reviews Fall 2019

By Kimberly

It’s time to review my empty products from Fall 2019. By the time I’ve finished something, I know exactly how I feel about it, so I prefer reviews of empties to first impressions. For items I neither love nor hate, I am always willing to try them again, but I will not seek them out. This generally means I will only try them again if they are: free, on sale, or in a set (sets are a great way to get a deal as long as the value of the items you want to try exceed the cost you are paying). The pH of products I’ve tested this season are below. Visit the pH article for info on how I test and a list of everything I’ve tested.

pH (Potential Hydrogen) List of Products I’ve Tested

Want to know the pH of products? At the end of each season, I will conduct pH (Potential Hydrogen) tests on all empty products that still have liquid in them and compile a master list here. The pH of each product will also appear behind the review of each empty article the product appears in. Type the product name into the search bar to find the corresponding article for the review. It is possible I will occasionally test products that are not yet empty. Place your testing request in the comments. I will test it if it is a product I own, and it is already opened. Opening and/or purchasing a product just to test it is not something I will usually do, because the expiration countdown starts the moment the product opens.

Ulta Love Your Hair Event Shopping Plan

2016 Event- The Gorgeous Hair Event for Spring 2016 is May 8th-28th.

The semi-annual Love Your Hair Event at Ulta starts today and runs through the 24th. This is to hair what the 21 Days of Beauty is to skincare and makeup. Have you ever noticed there are not many deals for hair products during the Days of Beauty! It is because they’re saved for this event. My catalog arrived on the 1st, and I looked through it to see if there was anything I had to have. There are too many deals for me to list, but I posted standouts from the catalog to my Ulta Promo Page. Most steals posted in the special section of the Ulta site, so be sure to study it to plan your purchases.
