I prefer to spend my time and energy writing about things I love, but in the interest of reporting the truth I thought I should let you know of a few things I have bought lately and have been really disappointed with.
1, Benefit Stay Don't Stray - I wrote about this product last week (here). Gripes include that the product started to separate about a month after buying it, the pump action dispenser always pumps out way more than you need so you waste a lot of product and the consistency is too thick for under-eye use.
2, Napoleon Whole Lotta Lash mascara - those who follow me on Instagram will have heard about my disappointment with this. I got this free in an Aussie mag and was blown away with how flimsy and crap the wand was. Seriously, how does this get approved through quality control? I'm so very curious to know if the ones you actually pay money for are as bad as this. The product inside is so-so.
Side note: I couldn't find this product on their website so it looks like they no longer make it.
3, Bourjois Intuitive Liner - This is a black dotting pen which you use along your lash line to build up to a defined, intense line. I don't know if the problem is the way i'm using it, but I just can't seem to get it to look any good on me. Blob city. It has gone to the back of the drawer.
4, Dior BB Cream - I blogged about this a while ago here. I really liked it at first and was desperate to get my hands on it having read so many positive reviews. However after a solid 2 months of use, i'm not loving it. I doesn't have the kind of coverage that I have come to love like the Chantecaille Just Skin has. The colour on me is quite pale so I have to team it with a bronzing primer. Sorry, I'm just not wowed.
It goes without saying that products that haven't worked for me may indeed work for you so if you love one of the products I have mentioned here let me know. If you have any disappointments you feel you need to get off your chest, please share them in the comments box below.
OK, now that this post is out of the way we can focus on the good stuff!
