The 6 Most Overly-Hyped Products
See which buzzed-about beauty products our readers say aren't worthy of the praise they garner
The Truth According to TotalBeauty.com Reviewers:"Not so," say some women. "I keep wanting it to work for me. But it makes me itchy and gets me a little bumpy. And I never get bumpy," claims one. Another maintains that "aside from being difficult to use, the results were an awful enlarged-pores/caked-on look. The iridescent shimmer that it produces on the skin is horrifying!" Others concur: "It looked so cakey on my face no matter how I put it on! What a waste of money and the coverage wasn't even that great! Yuck!" and "it is ridiculous unless you're 19 and already have flawless skin."
The Bottom Line: If you find yourself getting sucked in to the commercial, change the channel.
