When you start accumulating ridiculous quantities of cosmetics it’s inevitable that you will end up with a few duds lurking in your drawers. Sometimes you’re just unlucky. It’s just not quite right for your skin tone/ type/ personal taste. And sometimes you’ve just bought a crap product! Below are a few products that no matter how hard I have tried with them I just don’t like them. I’ve linked to the original reviews, some of which are kinder than I will be about the products than I will be today simply because as I’ve continuously been using them over a long period of time I really have grown to hate them...
Ah Benefit Thrrrob. It doesn’t matter what brush I use or how much I pack on I just can’t get you to show up on my cheeks. And I’m paler than copier paper so really you should be at least somewhat visible!
I wanted the MUA BB cream to be fabulous as I have a soft spot for the brand and the £4 price tag can’t be beaten but it’s not. I’ve tried it over so many different primers, with so many application methods and a huge number of different powders to set it but to no avail. It sits on top of my skin refusing to sink in transferring onto everything I touch and general looking obvious and cakey. Horrid.
Why did I buy the MAC Magically Cool Liquid Powder in Truth & Light? No idea. It’s a £25.50 tub of product that I just don’t use. I find that used as a highlight it’s so subtle that I’m not sure why I bothered. As an all over setting powder it’s just too sparkly for my tastes. It’s just not for me.
I’m a bit of a fussy bugger when it comes to mascara (aren’t we all?) but these three really just were awful on me. The Rimmel Scandaleyes has a brush the size of a tennis racquet and doesn’t do anything for my lashes. The No7 Fanomenal Lashes gives me crappy clumped together mono lash. And I’m pretty sure Maybelline have sold me an empty tube of mascara as when I try to use the Illegal Lengths it just doesn’t seem like any product is ending up on my lashes.
Of course some of these products may well be your favourite and I’m happy if they are! They must work for someone otherwise the brands wouldn’t still be making them. It’s just for me they do not work and I regret parting with my pennies for them. So there. Rant over. What products do you want to love but have ended up loathing?
