Every so often I get sucked in my blogger hype, or a promotion and buy a product on a whim, unfortunately a lot of the time that leaves me p*%ssed off that I wasted my precious pounds on something I'm not going to get any use out of. Hopefully you guys won't make the same mistake with these products! There are probably a few in here that you'd be shocked by, but I just can't come to terms with wasting my money on the next six bits that I'm about to share with you.
#1 Urban Decay Naked 3
Controversial, right? It took me a long time to buy this, and I've written an entire review on what I think about the palette here so I won't bore you again, just check that out. To cut a long story short, this product genuinely makes me angry that I parted with nearly £40 when I have no desire to use it.
#2 YSL Baby Doll Kiss and Blush in 7
I saw these blush and lip combo creme's in Boots just before their release date and I knew I had to have one. Unfortunately, when I got around to buying it and playing around with the actual product it left me wanting more. It's a little too hard to blend so the colour patches on the cheek and is way too pigmented for my liking. I wish it were a little more smooth to apply, then it would be beautiful.
#3 Bourjois Java Rice Powder
Too much glitter, not enough functionality. I hate the packaging, any loose powder with a sifter does my head in and this is no exception. To be honest, I think this was far too hyped up on blogs and YouTube and I definitely got sucked in. Live and learn!
#4 Estee Lauder Double Wear All Day Glow BB Cream
I was so excited to try this out, I admittedly hadn't read anything about it but given the brand and the line to which it's attached I had only high hopes. Unfortunately, on my dry skin this separated and oxidised like a bitch - I'd like to point out that this never happens to me, not even with matte foundations. As well as that, it was hard to blend because it is a quite thick formula and it stayed tacky far too long for my liking. I'm just not fussed.
#5 Topshop Saint ( & Topshop Lipstick in general.)
I love the packaging and the colour of Topshop lipstick but the formula for me is awful. I keep buying them in hope that perhaps they won't all be drying and settle into the lines in my lips but each time I'm greeted with an ugly result. Not a fan!
#6 bareMinerals Well Rested Under Eye Concealer
Now, it's not that this doesn't do what it says on the tin, it's just that it doesn't give that wow factor I was expecting! It's my own fault because I see beautifully tanned girls using products like this and I expect the same affect on my super pale complexion. I just haven't reached for this nearly enough to justify it's price tag. Sad, but true.
So there are my snappy warnings on some disappointing products. Hope this helps!
