Products That I Regret Buying

Disclaimer: These are only my opinions, based on my experiences.

This is the "Save Your Money" list. I wish someone would have told me not to get these products. However, just because these products are not my favorites, doesn't mean that they won't work for you. On that note, if you've used it and love it, do tell me how you are using it and why you love it. Most of time, every product has its pros and cons, you just have to know how to use it to get the product to work for you.

Nars Skin - Hydrating freshening lotion

Kinda got talked into buying this one when I was told it would exfoliate and hydrate the skin. After trying it out, my skin doesn't feel any different after one or many applications.

Benefit - That Gal brightening face primer

Sounded like a great idea. The primer is a soft pink colour and it smells great, but I didn't find that my makeup stayed on any longer after using this. My complexion didn't look any brighter either.

Shiseido - The Makeup Sheer Enhancer Base

This came in a silvery colour with a thicker consistency in a glass pour bottle (no pump). I thought it would have been a great hilight colour, but the thick texture made the product difficult to work with. First, it was hard to even get it out of its glass bottle, like getting fresh ketchup out of the glass bottle. Second, it didn't really make the skin glow, but instead, it gave it an unnatural tin foil-like colour. Maybe I can try mixing it into my foundation and see what happens.

Marcelle - Wet & Dry Eye Shadow Quad

The colours are chalky, not pigmented, and the finishing is not smooth and silky.

Bare Escentuals BareMineral Eye Shadows in Soule, Tiger's eye and Cashmere

The colours are great, but everytime I open the lids on these shadows, I make a mess. The shadows pool around the lid and spills everywhere whenever it is opened. As a result, I just don't seem to reach for them. I wish they came in little jars like MAC pigments, and not the sifter containers they come in.

Physician's Formula - Cream to Powder Blush

The formula was not soft and blendable, colours are not pigmented.

Too faced - Glamour to go Palette

This is small and compact, but didn't I like the finishes on the shadows or the pigmentation of the blush and lipcolours.

Lush Caca Noir Mama Henna Hair Dye

Lush makes some wonderful products, but this is not one of them. I thought this would make my hair shiny and darken the faded black on the ends that were once hilighted and dyed over with black.

I followed all the instructions, and all I got was that herbal henna smell on my hair for a few days - not silky shiny hair.

Thats all I can think of for now. Do share the products that you regret purchasing.

Thanks for reading

Til the Next time...
