Disappointing Makeup Products
Logically I understand not every product available in the market is going to be amazing. There are going to hits and misses, but that doesn’t mean it is any less annoying. I think a lot of the times we only talk about the products we love, and skip the ones we dislike, but at the same time I feel like no matter how expensive or inexpensive they are, if they don’t work right, it’s a waste of money. It is just less annoying when it is inexpensive, that doesn’t change the fact, it is still a disappointing product.
Sephora Outrageous Rouge Extreme Liquid Lipstick
When I tested this product in Sephora. It was absolutely great. I swatched it on the back of my hand and it did set into place pretty fast, didn’t move, looked great. But on the lips it was totally something else. It is sooo, sooo, sooo uncomfortable to wear. To the point that there is not point in wearing this liquid lipstick. I know liquid lipsticks, matte look, is all the hype at the moment, so don’t purchase this one. It makes your lips look chapped, dry,sticky and gross. It is patchy and you can not build it, because if you do it will feel like a layers of thick glue on your lips. I have tried making it work so many ways but it just fails. So I gave up on it.
Maybelline Dream Wonder Nude Foundation
I have reviewed this foundation on my blog, and I was iffy about it. I do think that a lot of people will find this foundation absolutely amazing. But for me, I did not realize what was causing my skin to break out, and go all bumpy and uneven, because for the most part, my skin is pretty even and I only get occasional break outs, if you know what I mean(lol). But other than that I don’t deal with break outs and uneven skin, and then I realized oh well, I’m using a new foundation, I stopped using it and my skin started to get even instantly and also I think it is useless for me. I am all about sheer foundations, but this I would call more like a tinted moisturizer, in fact sheerer. I does even out redness and stuff, but for me, I was pretty disappointed by this product.
I think Essence is a great affordable brand. They offer a lot of good products for really affordable prices. But if they product is not doing what it is supposed to do, that affordable price is just a waste of money. I think Essence eyeshadows are not good at all. I would rather go with quads and trios from L’Oreal, Mayeblline, Cover girl, and Nyx rather than Essence eyeshadows. Essence Eyeshadows fade way too quicky. They do not go on true to color and if somehow you manage to do that, within an hour, the most, it fades away. I am disappointed but not as much because at the end of the day it is not like some expensive product and I feel super disappointed, but still it is a waste of money.
Sleek Gloss Me Color Intense supreme shine lip gloss
I can not stand sticky Lip glosses. They just annoy the heck out of me. I would rather wear no lip gloss than a sticky one. This is the reason I do not try out new lip glosses and stick to Estee Lauder Lip glosses because I know they are exactly how I like my glosses to be. Sleek Gloss Me lip glosses are extremely sticky and uncomfortable to wear. Definitely disappointed, because Sleek products are one of my favorites, they rarely go wrong with their products, and Gloss Me lip glosses are one of those products.
Sephora Smart Eyeliner Pen
Tbh I had really high hopes with this eyeliner. I though it would be absolutely great. I am one of those people who just makes things work out somehow, and get the use out of it. But some products are just too awful, and you have to pass on them, like the Maybelline Dream wonder Nude foundation, I passed on totally, once I realized it was causing my skin to break out. But with this eyeliner even though I was disappointed I made it work. So you can definitely work with it, but the felt tip is very wiggley and loses shape within the first few uses and then it is just too difficult to use. Winged eyeliner is hard as it is, you don’t have to add additional difficulties. I think you can find pretty decent eyeliners, in half of the price of this eyeliner. So I will definitely not be repurchasing it.
I hope you find this post helful.
