I always wondered what men thought about all the effort we put in making ourselves look glamorous. So I did a bit of digging. I asked a few men on what they thought of some of the beauty/makeup products we used and here are the products men love to hate.


Lip gloss

In an attempt to make our lips look nice and healthy, we apply lip balm. Sometimes we want to make them more presentable and give our lips a bit of a shine by applying lip gloss.

Although lip gloss looks very appealing to us women, men don’t like them very much. They find lip gloss very sticky and hate how it tastes as well, when they go for a kiss.


Dark lipstick

Dark lipsticks are in vogue and it has become very common to see women with blue, deep purple and even black lipstick. Although we find dark lipstick appealing and stylish, many men don’t understand the idea behind such unnatural colours. Unfortunately for us ladies, men have been heard to make fun of our dark coloured lipsticks.


Hair extensions

Sometimes we need a little help when it comes to having good-looking hair. Due to hair damage, weak hair and the desire to have long hair, some of us go for hair extensions for the needed hair boost.

When you choose the right shade and have it fixed properly, hair extensions can look very appealing. However, this is another one the guys don’t seem to like much. When they run their hands through your hair and find their fingers get stuck in the parts where you attached the hair extensions it can be a big turn off for them.


Fake eyelashes

Fake eyelashes are another one on the list of beauty products men hate. We love and admire long beautiful eyelashes as they make one’s eyes look more alluring. And when we apply mascara, they make the eyes more distinct and gorgeous.  That is why women rush to fix fake eyelashes to get that desired look, if the natural eyelashes do not do the work. But men claim to hate it.


Glittery Eye shadow

You know the eye-catching glittery eye shadow we apply on those really fun days when we feel like trying something a little different? Glittery eye shadow adds glam to your outfit and makes you look amazing. However, some men claim to hate this particular type of makeup.


Fake nails

When we are feel like having a good pamper session, we usually go for a manicure and a pedicure. Fixing fake nails also adds to the whole glam. I used to be a huge lover of fake nails. I used to have them done regularly before I had my twins. But since I became a mother, I can’t be bothered to get the nails done.

Beautifully painted nails always look wonderful, but some men claim to have an issue with the fake nails.


According to my research, these are the beauty products men hate. What do you think of them? Did any surprise you?

Product Review: Bobbi Brown Rich Colour Angel Pink Lipgloss

I have been using this Bobbi Brown Rich Colour Angel Pink lipgloss for some months and I am now able to give my honest opinion. Here is what Bobbi Brown says about the product:

Rich Color Gloss has the full color coverage of a lipstick, the soft shine of a gloss, and the luxurious feel of a balm. It moisturizes, conditions, and lasts throughout the day without feathering.

Bobbi Brown Rich Colour Lipgloss

Here are my thoughts:


  • Beautiful packaging.
  • Lipgloss is glossy but not sticky.
  • It moisturizes the lips.
  • It is a long lasting lipgloss

Bobbi Brpwn


  • It is quite expensive at £18.50 for a 7ml.
  • This Angel Pink lipgloss does not have the coverage of a lipstick when I apply it. It looks like a lipgloss to me, which it is.
  • It has a strong minty smell I really don’t like much.

Overall, I love Bobbi Brown lipglosses. I have been a fan for years so I will be trying other lipgloss shades in the Rich Colour range till I find the perfect one.

What do you think? Have you used any of the lipglosses from Bobbi Brown Rich Colour range? Sound off in the comment section pls. Thanks for reading.
