Products I Regret Buying
I'm a student, so I really cannot afford to be wasting money on products that are just not going to work for me. I research pretty much everything I buy, read reviews and blog posts to see if something is worth the money. Somehow, I have still managed to accumulate some RUBBISH products.
|l-r: Dream Matte Mousse, (Box for) Benefit Boiing, Collection Gel Eyeliner, Maybelline Lipstain, Loreal Superliner|
Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse.
Just NO. This was my first foundation. This was the worst foundation ever. I used it before i really knew a thing about make up, from when I was about 15-17. And I have to say, this really ruined my skin. It left me with sore spots and dry patches. I have tried to wean my friends off this foundation, get them to try other things. I think you don't really realise how bad this is until you try something else. In fairness, this does look good when you first apply it, but the staying power is virtually non existent.
Benefit Boiing Concealer
I had the colour 01. I was really looking forward to using this, as it was my first proper benefit product, and I have to say I was disappointed. I mainly used it on my spots and scars, mainly on my chin. Instead of covering spots, it slipped off them, leaving greasy streaks. This was not attractive, i felt like an oil slick. I do have skin on the slightly oilier side, so maybe this concealer just adds to the issue. Also, I threw out the actual product, so I don't have a picture to show you, just the pretty box.
Collection 2000 Gel Eyeliner
This was the first and only gel eyeliner I have tried. I didn't really research this, i just thought, i'll try a cheap one, see how i get on with applying it. Firstly, this was hard to apply, i definitely needed a better brush. Secondly, this smudged up my eyes. i ended up looking like i had just applied black up to my eye brows. However, on the plus side, I think i have had this about a year, and it has still not dried up. I'm not sure why i still have it though..
Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstain
I bought the colour Blushing. Actually, my boyfriend bought it for me. He said that if I walked around Tesco with a moustache on my face, he would buy it for me. Now, I am not one to turn down free make up, so obviously I accepted the challenge. So, after the embarrassment, I was seriously annoyed to find that this was the worst lip product I had ever used. It was drying, flaked on my lips, went patchy, and had dried up by the time I went to use it for the third time. These are now discontinued...
Loreal Super Liner in Black Vinyl
I read SO many good reviews about the carbon gloss version of this that I went out to buy it. I think it was discontinued or sold out, but Carbon Gloss was not in stock, so I bought this version. I don't know if I got a dodgy one, but this was sealed when I bought it, and when I first applied it, it has pretty much already dried out. So, my money was wasted. POO.
I apologise for the depressing post. It is not exactly positive. I think tomorrow I will do a products worth the hype post, just to improve the mood. But, yes, those are a few of the products I really did not enjoy, hope it helps :)
