Products I Regret Buying

Monday, 8 April 2013

Hey Lovelies! I've been trying to decide whether to do this post for a while now because, as you can see by the title, its a bit of a negative post! But I've (obviously) decided to write it because I always find it interesting to see weather products live up to the hype or not. However, saying that, just because I didn't like these products doesn't mean that they wont suit you - these may be exactly what your looking for!

Rimmel Stay Matte - One of the first products I regret buying is the Rimmel 'stay matte' foundation. I bought this a while ago when I was on my way back to University after being home for a few weeks, and I cleverly forgot to take my make up back to Bournemouth with me - I know, nightmare! So I popped into Boots on the way back, I didn't want to spend much on make up as I had loads of it at home that I'd forgotten, so luckily for me Rimmel had a 3 for 2 offer on. I picked out this foundation because it was quite cheap and I only needed to use it for a few days but it just doesnt suit my skin at all. Firstly, there wasn't really a good match for my skin and the matte effect made my skin look dry. Also, I found this foundation quite patchy and it just made my skin look awful! If I wasn't just using this foundation for a few days I would be kinda dissapointed with the size of the bottle too, its tiny! I think this foundation would work really well on people who don't have my horrible dry skin, also, it clings to blemishes and spots too so I'd say you need clear skin to get away with this.

Soap and Glory Mascara - Okay, so I didn't technically buy this, it came in a goodie bag at an event at University, but it's always disappointing when you don't like something! If you've read any of my previous posts, you'll know that I've always been a bit wary of Soap and Glory because I find their products a bit hit and miss, this unfortunately was a miss. The mascara claims to give you super volume. I didn't really find that this worked for me because it just didn't add any volume. I found the brush very stiff so it was hard to get a good curl on the lashes and was just really difficult to use. Although, saying that I do use it when I know I'll be wearing false eyelashes because you don't really need an amazing mascara for that.

Maybelline dream satin liquid - Okay, so I knew when I decided to write this post that there would be more than one foundation featured because I just cant seem to find the perfect one! I used to really love this foundation but since repurchasing it after my YSL ran out, I've fallen out of love with it. I just cant get it to stay on my skin for very long at all which means it ends up looking shiny and patchy. I think maybe Im being a bit optimistic for a drugstore foundation, especially after using a high end one for a few months? Im not sure. I think this product would work really well on dry skin though as it never dried my skin out and it's quite dewy.

Maybelline colour sensational lip marker - I LOVE lip products, its becoming a bit of an obsession really, seeing as I still use the same few everytime I do my makeup. But this purchase was another one of my emergency purchases after the forgotten make up disaster I've already talked about. I decided to try one of the lip markers because they were fairly new and I always like to try out new make up. I don't think this product is a bad product, far from it, and it does everything it claims to. I just think this one isn't for me. You have to draw the lip colour on like your using an actual marker and it feels like a felt tip which I didn't really love. Also, after a while of wearing it, your left with a lip liner effect which Im not a massive fan of because I never really use lip liner. I also prefer the feel of a lipstick or gloss because It leaves my lips feeling smooth but this one just felt slightly dry, not in a bad way, it was just strange. I got this one in the colour 'plum flushed' which is a really nice deep pink and its also really buildable so you can make it pop as much as you want. This product also smells amazing, kind of a fruity smell.

Sorry for all the negativity in this post, but you can't love everything you try! Let me know if you've tried any of these products and what you thought of them!
