Worth It or Worthless: The Best and the Worst 2021 Makeup Releases

Are you wondering which of this year’s new beauty releases are worth it and which ones are worthless? I’m here to help you figure out which of these beauty products are dazzlers and which are duds.

WORTH IT: URBAN DECAY COSMETICS Naked Wild West Eyeshadow Palette

With this limited-edition 12-shade color palette you can get wearable neutrals and colors that stand out all year round. You’ll find yourself reaching for this more than you expect!

WORTHLESS: E.L.F. COSMETICS Flawless Brightening Concealer

Although this concealer brightens and hydrates your skin, it does not do much concealing if you have dark circles. With such minimal coverage, it works better as a brightener.

WORTH IT: CHANTECAILLE Cheek Shade– Grace & Joy

These blendable cheek shades wear beautifully. Not only is this luxury product a worthy buy, but you will also be supporting a foundation that corresponds to the animal of the shade you choose.

WORTHLESS: No7 Radiance+ Vitamin C Daily Brightening Moisturizer

Unfortunately, this didn’t do much to adequately hydrate my combination skin. So if you have normal to dry skin, I’d look elsewhere.

WORTH IT: CHANTECAILLE Lip Veil – Moabi and Honeypot

These tinted lip balms give your lips a lightweight and hydrated feel, which is perfect for those who don’t like a thick consistency yet want a hint of tint.

WORTH IT: Westman Atelier Baby Cheeks Blush Stick (Chouchette)

If you like creams or stick formulas, you will not be disappointed with this blush stick that gives a naturally beautiful finish. This color in particular (shown in the video below) is gorgeous!

WORTH IT: NARS Soft Matte Tinted Lip Balm (various shades) 

This limited-edition tinted lip balm is different from others on the market with its matte, sheer finish. I was doubtful that it could be hydrating and matte at the same time, but it feels wonderful on the lips!

WORTHLESS: NYX Professional Makeup Marshmellow Primer

This is the perfect example of a viral makeup product not working out for everyone. For me, this 10-in-1 smoothing primer promised a lot but fell quite short of its promises.
