People seem to love posts like this and I can understand why, it helps to avoid disappointing purchases and save you some pennies, but I have to be honest here, I didn’t want to write this. I try to love everything I purchase but there are just some things that really didn’t work out for me and are currently sitting in a pile under my bed doing nothing. You can’t love everything you buy and I’ve learn to understand that no matter how much a purchase costs.
So instead of leaving it under my bed hoping that one day I might fall in love with it I thought I would share with you these products.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Foundation
I really wanted to love this, in fact it was so hyped up by a few people I know I bought 3 tubes of it, but it was just absolutely terrible on my skin! I know loads of people who rave about this foundation and I can understand why, its got high coverage but it doesn’t half slide down your face when the slightest bit of moisture hits it. It didn’t matter what primer I used, what setting spray I used or setting powder whenever I touched my face lightly or a drop of sweat hit my forehead it just slid off and looked an absolute streaky mess. Plus it looked proper cakey on me. Shame as I love their bottled infallible foundation!
Maybelline FaceStudio Master Camo Correcting Kit in Light
It did nothing in the way of helping me colour correct my skin AT ALL. I see all over YouTube and Instagram how colour correcting has changed the way they apply their make up as it helps to conceal all those dark circles under the eyes or spots on your face but to be honest, this one sucks. It was quite hard to scoop out with any brush and didn’t quite blend out properly on my skin. It’s a no from me.
Colourpop Ultra Satin Lips
Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love their matte lips but the satin ones were horrendous. They went flaky, it ended up streaky as anything and didn’t last long in the slightest. I was sat in work training one of the new ladies who was starting with us and half an hour into the job it was just everywhere. I wasn’t expecting it to last hours as it was only a satin lippie but I would of expected more than half an hour when I hadn’t even taken a drink or eaten anything! Luckily I had a back up lippie in my bag! Matte ones yes, satin ones hell no!
Zoeva Cat Eye Eyeliner in Blackest Black
I raved about this product when I first bought it, I thought it was the best eyeliner I’d ever bought in my life! But after a few uses something terrible happened…
the tip dried out. I never leave the lids off anything so I knew it wasn’t that, so I did a bit of research and it turns out this has happened to a lot of people! Don’t get me wrong its an absolute fantastic product when it works, its completely opaque when applied and doesn’t bleed onto the eyelid, but did it really have to dry out so quickly?! Gutted doesn’t cover it.
Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Eye-Brightening Concentrate
I received this in a subscription box from Look Incredible and I was so excited to give this a try as my under eyes are terrible. So I tried it for a week but as that week went on I noticed that my under eyes were turning yellow, yup, yellow. Immediately stopped it and decided to use it again after a couple of weeks and it did the same thing! I did everything the bottle says so fuck knows why that happened! A shame really as its such a good brand. The bin for you unfortunately!
Only 5 on the list for today thankfully! The product I’m most gutted about is the Zoeva Eyeliner personally, a decent size, cheap in price with fab product but please change that brush!
Until next time,
