Products that were just sort of disappointing.

7 Beauty Products That Just Didn't Impress Me

Everyone likes to talk about their favorite products, but sometimes it is more helpful to hear about products that didn't work out. This can help you make a more informed and well-rounded decision about what you're buying.

DISCLAIMER: Just because these products didn't work for me, that doesn't mean they won't work for you. Makeup and beauty is a very personal game. Different products work for different people. Please don't be offended if some of these products are your holy grails.

1. Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation

I have given this foundation many chances, but I just didn't love it. It applied very nicely, but by the end of the day my face was extremely shiny and oily. I don't even have oily skin. No amount of powder could contain the oils in this foundation.

2. Too Faced Love Flush Blush

I don't know if this is possible, but these blushes are too pigmented for me. I like a very light blush to just bring some life to your face. These blushes are just way too intense for me. I even tried using a less dense brush and that didn't work.

3. L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

This mascara is everyone's ride or die, but hear me out. When I first applied it, my lashes looked bomb. They were full and long and looked like I had falsies on. So what's the problem? This mascara is a bitch to remove. When I used a makeup remover wipe to take it off, some of my lashes came out because the product wouldn't budge. Not cool.

4. Benefit Boi-ing Industrial-Strength Concealer

This concealer just doesn't really do it for me. The lightest shade is still too dark for me, and it's extremely thick. I've tried to use it to cover blemishes, and it looked very cake-y. You can tell I'm wearing makeup when I use this product.

5. Anastasia Beverly Hills Ultimate Glow Kit

Bet you thought I was going to say the Subculture Palette! This glow kit is so different from the others. The other glow kits are finely-milled and give the face a beautiful but natural glow. The Ultimate Glow Kit is chunky, glittery, and not nearly as pigmented. The shades are beautiful, but the glow just isn't there.

6. The Beauty Crop #GRLPWR Liquid Lipstick

I just received this product in a Boxycharm Box, but I already don't like it. It is probably the patchiest liquid lipstick I own. I had to go over my lips many times to get the color to be completely opaque, which then caused some product to build up on the inside of my mouth. It wasn't a cute look, trust me.

7. Winky Lux Uni-Brow Universal Brow Pencil

I've come to the conclusion that a universal brow shade just doesn't exist. This pencil is way too intense for my brows. I would use the lightest hand with it and still end up with very dark brows. If you have light eyebrows, stick to the Benefit brow products in shade 1.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
