Disappointing Products #1
Hi everyone! Hope you're all okay. Today's post is going to be about products that I find disappointing if you hadn't already guessed from the title! Haha. I don't know about you, but for me, when a blogger mentions a product that's amazing I always rush out to buy it. Sometimes the product lives up to my expectations and sometimes it really doesn't...
Bourjois Bronzing Powder
I've seen endless amounts of bloggers and youtubers raving about this product. I'm quite late in getting it actually but when I saw it on sale for £3.99 I thought I'd pick it up. On taking it home and trying to swatch it on my hand I couldn't believe it! I rubbed my finger along the bronzer about three times and swatched it on my hand and it looked like there was nothing on there at all! You could slightly see the bronzer if you looked really really closely. Considering this is around £8.00 (i think) normally I would honestly say this is a right rip off.
ELF Makeup Mist & Set
My estimations of ELF are going down quite a bit lately. I've placed an order that should hopefully come tomorrow fingers crossed but it's taken about 9 days already! Anyway, this product is absolutely horrific! I sprayed it on my face and literally thought I was going to die. It stings so much and definitely don't get it in your eyes, your makeup will run and you will cry.
MUA Liquid Eyeliner
First of all, as everyone probably knows this is only a pound, £1! I'm rarely disappointed in MUA products and this is the exception. The nib of the eyeliner is really hard and scratchy and really digs into my eyelids making them horribly sore. Once the eyeliner is on it wears off and peels pretty quickly.
Collection 2000 Colour Match Foundation
I've been really impressed with Collection 2000's foundations and concealers in the past so thought I'd give this one a go when I saw it on offer for £3.99 in Tesco a few weeks ago. It's meant to adapt to your skin colour but for me it was seriously orange! No amount of pressed powder could cover up how orange I looked. I also think the coverage is pretty bad, it made my skin look really uneven.
Rimmel Volume Flash Scandal Eyes Mascara
I couldn't wait to try this mascara! I love the idea of having a big brush. A big brush instantly means more volume to me. This mascara looks okay on top of a mascara just for volumising your lashes but on it's own it's useless! The consistency just sticks all of my eyelashes together into one which isn't a very pretty look! The lashes are impossible to separate. I'd say the formula is almost too runny.
I hope you enjoyed this! I hate that I've wrote a really negative post but I think that sometimes with cosmetics you do need to address the good and the bad. Plus, it'd be boring if everybody wrote positive reviews!
Thanks for following/reading! Let me know your thoughts on any of the above products.
P.S I've added a "SHOP!" page to my blog above so have a little peek and see if there's anything you like!
