It’s time for another disappointing products post. There is a good mix of drugstore and higher end makeup here.
I know all of these products are loved by other people, so don’t take my word as gospel. We all have different skin types and needs, so these may work for you. Please don’t hate me for talking trash about your favourite makeup!
Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks
I really wanted to love these. There is nothing wrong with the colours; the shades are amazing however I have found two different issues with them. These either dry so matte that my mouth feels like it’s in the Sahara Dessert, or they smudge like crazy and won’t dry down. There is no happy medium as in the likes of the Kat Von D or the Nyx liquid lipstick formulas. These just don’t work for me, and I know so many people say that these are their favourite liquid lipsticks.
Stila Got Inked Cushion Eye Liner
This sounded such a cool idea, but I find this so tricky to work with. The colour is beautiful, but it applies really thin and patchy. I don’t know if I purchased a bad one, but I just wasn’t impressed with this as much as I thought that I would be.
New Look Super Matte Liquid Lipstick
I had the same problem with this as I had with Jeffree’s Liquid Lipsticks. They feel so drying and these crumble off the lips in weird patches. To quote my boyfriend; it looks like polyfiller on my lips. I absolutely hated this formula. Sometimes it does smudge too, and I have so much trouble removing the smudges; it really looks awful and such a hot mess!
Rimmel Lasting Finish Makeup Primer
This does nothing for my makeup. It just feels like a slippery extra layer. I would much rather pay the extra for the Smashbox primers. At least I know that they’re doing their job and helping my foundation lock onto the skin.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer
This gives lovely coverage and blends really easily. And for a few minutes it looks flawless. My issue with this is that it creases under my eyes. I have found a few concealers now that don’t cause this problem; it really disappoints me when I find one that still creases. I love the foundation in this formula though!
What products did you have high hopes for, but ended up being thoroughly disappointed?
Thanks for reading and I’ll see you tomorrow!
