Hi all! Welcome to a new series on the blog that I’ve been looking forward to writing. This series, succinctly called “Brands That Don’t Suck”, is exactly what it sounds like. Each post will feature a different brand that I’m a fan of for various reasons.
Now we’ve all been down this road before – a brand gets super hyped on social media, we go out and buy a product from them, and it turns out it sucks. This feature will try to help you avoid this problem. I’m not going to do blanket “everything this brand touch turns to gold! Praise them as the new Midas! They can do no wrong!” type thing because frankly that’s bollocks. Instead, I’m going to take you honestly through some pros and cons of their products and outline which, in my experience, are hits, misses or things I’m on the fence about because they’re good but not necessarily good for me. Naturally I can’t cover every product they do because my collection is not even close to that extensive, but hopefully I’ll at least be able to give you some idea of what to look out for.
The first brand I’m focusing on is one of the first high-end brands I ever bought a palette from: Urban Decay.
