Hits and Misses: Beauty 2012
Happy New Year! It’s a time to think about all of the wonderful things that are going to happen this year – economic stability, weight stability, clean closets, clean inboxes, etc. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves…
Last week, I reviewed my favorite beauty trends of 2012. In the interest of balance and, of course, a little snarkiness, let’s take a moment to reflect on the worst beauty trends of 2012.
- Stiletto Nails. I have a hard time even thinking about this trend because it gives me the same response as nails on a chalkboard. CRINGE! And also – ouch!
- CC Cream. The follow up to BB Cream, “Complete Correction” or “Complete Control” CC Cream apparently promises EVEN MORE benefits. I love the idea of multitasking products, but this trend is starting to feel like a marketing ploy. It’s hard to believe that one product is going to solve everything – although I look forward to the day when one product replaces my entire makeup routine AND makes me a latte!
- Dyed Grey Hair. Ok, admittedly, P!nk looks pretty good with grey hair. That said, she’s a beautiful woman and would probably look pretty good with no hair. In general, this hue makes women look a bit washed out and, well, a bit scary. I spend hundreds of hours and dollars to cover my greys. You would think this would be a welcomed trend. No thanks – I’ll pass for now.
See?! This year HAS to be even better than last year! There’s so much room for improvement!
