Ok let me begin by saying this is just my opinion and just because I don't think that some things are necessary, it doesn't mean that I haven't fallen for the marketing tricks some companies use to wheel us into buying their unneeded products..
So lets begin..
1. A Gazillion Brushes
Do we seriously need to have a special brush just to apply the eye shadow and another one just to blend it out? Seems like an obvious way for the company to make more $.. I bet most of us have brushes that they've barely touched..
2. Eye/Lip Primer
Ok when I say an Eye Primer, I mean one that people use just so they can cover up their veins not one where they need to control their oils.. Just use a concealer people.. You don't need to buy a concealer looking "eye primer"..
And a Lip Primer? Seriously? When did that hit market? Again.. just use your concealer..
3. Too many Eyeshadow Palettes
Yes it's nice to have different eyeshadow palettes from different brands, but chances are some many shades will be neglected and you'll probably have duplicates of the same shade and that is just such a waste.. Try to look for an eyeshadow palette that has all the colours you will use and don't get another similar palette just because a "Beauty Guru" loves it or just because you love one shade in that palette..
4. Lip Scrub
Ok I admit, I own one but I don't even know why I bought it.. It's such a waste of money.. My tooth brush gives me the same results..
What other things can you guys think of that are some company's ways of making more money?
