Products I Regret Buying

First up we have Sleek Face Contour Kit in Light. £5.99
I brought this after seeing it on youtube and hated it. I purchased it in 'Light' and I find that the bronzer doesn't look right on my skin and the Highlighting powder is too peach toned and too glittery.

Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hour Concealer. £5
It looks fine when you first dot it
on your skin but then when you attempt to blend it in it just cakes up and settles into fine lines. Hate this.

Dior Forever Extreme Wear Foundation Spf 25. £28.00
I had high hopes for this foundations. It claims to be an 'extreme wear' foundation that is long lasting and even has an spf. I remember loving this for the first two weeks and then I completely went off it. The beauty assistant recommended 030 for me at the time which looking back was slightly too dark and I found this oxidised during the day.. which my mum even noticed. I would leave the house looking put together and return home looking like someone had replaced my head with a giant orange. For £28, not im
pressed. I still mix it in with my other foundations though otherwise it's just a waste!
Max Factor FaceFinity Compact Foundation. £10.99
I purchased this after seeing someone rave about it on Youtube and was highly disappointed. It not only looks cakey but you can feel it on your skin.. you know that horrible dry powdery feeling? The colours also run a little dark so prepare to be orange!

Revlon Nude Attitude Lipstick - £7.99
Everyone raved about this for ages so I gave it and purchased it.. And it's horrible. It has an orange/peach undertone which is not flattering in the slightest and it's extremely drying on the lips.

9 beauty obsessed ladies have an opinion...:

  1. I love the Maybelline concealer!

  2. @spifftiff88 - I love the Maybelline Mineral Concealer I just couldn't work with the SuperStay one though! x

  3. I totally agree about Nude Attitude - it's awful! I love the Max Factor compact though, it looks great on me when set with Fix +, I'm quite oily though!

  4. Oh God I have a whole drawer full of things I've regretted buying, I feel your pain! Surprised at Dior though, you'd think for that price you'd be getting a high-quality product...although I must say their eyeshadows disappoint me a bit too :/

  5. missy_ellie_uk - Ahh I've never used it with my fix +, definately going to give that a go! x

  6. I am surprised about the Dior Forever Foundation! Some of their foundations are awesome and I had read great reviews about it. It is good to read second thoughts.

  7. @Dani - It's a bit depressing when you think of all the money you've spent on products that haven't worked! I'm sure I'll find some uses for these bits though lol x

    @Catanya - I thought it was going to be amazing but it really disappointed me. It's the only foundation I've found that's oxidised on my skin, even my parents commented on how bad it looked at the end of the day! x

  8. My entire drawer is full of things I hate.
