Hi everyone, how are you all today?
Today, I wanted to step away from great makeup, and mention a few disappointments. Some of these have really surprised me as they have previously been favourites. However our faces and makeup preferences do change over time so this is perfectly normal.
So here are five disappointing products.
Avon Mark Gel Eyeliner
This looks such a gorgeous colour in the pot. It’s a stunning emerald green, and I would love to use this more on my eyes. It’s ideal for a slight smudge of colour along the lash line. However, for the life of me, I cannot create wings with this. The formula is too dry. And this is a colour that begs to be played with. Unfortunately the formula is awful.
Barry M Lip Scrub
I’m sure that this would be an amazing lip scrub if I could stand the taste. I was nearly sick when I tried this; and I love marshmallow smelling scents. This scrub tastes awful!
Benefit They’re Real Mascara
I used to love this mascara before my eyes became quite sensitive to it, and watered like a spring shower. However, I recently picked it up again thinking I would be okay. Well, the great news is that I am no longer sensitive to the formula. The bad news is that I have now found better volume boosting mascaras that look much more dramatic than this. It’s still a beautiful mascara, but I won’t be reaching for it when I wear my bright eyeshadows.
Barry M Liquid Chrome Highlighter Drops
I love the colours in these highlighters! They are so stunning! However, I cannot work with them as highlighting products. The formula is too thick and gloopy. I cannot blend it out on my cheeks at all. It’s gorgeous as an eyeshadow, but I don’t think that this is what the company intended these to be used for.
Superdrug BB Eye Cream
Yes, my ride or die undereye concealer is now a disappointing product. My dry, flakey undereye kept returning so I started cutting out a product each time it came back, trying to find out what was causing the breakout. Unfortunately, it turned out to be this, which is such a shame because I love how this blends out. It looks flawless.
So those are my most recent disappointing products. What has disappointed you lately? Or did you have a different experience with any of these items?
Have a great day guys!
