I like to keep things on the more positive side of things here but recently I seem to have been disappointed by quite a lot of purchases. I’ve given all of these a good few months trial but I just can’t get on with them, maybe my exceptions are too high, who knows.
We have two mascaras which aren’t cutting it, one high end one high street. I love the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara so when I saw the new Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara I hoped it would be better than its big sister. I don’t know what it is with this mascara but it just clumps all my lashes together. The product itself is very wet but its possibly the blackest black ever. I think it might be the brush, apparently it has a little reservoir that holds the formula, it just seems to put too much product on all at once. Massive thumbs down.
The second mascara is Charlotte Tilbury’s Full Fat Lashes mascara which is pricey at £22.00. It promises to deliver curl, separation, length, the full works. Well, I can say this does absolutely nothing. I curl my lashes and put this mascara on and the go straight, they don’t look fuller, longer or curled they look like shit. Please don’t waste your money.
Moving on to lip products; I had high hopes for the Freedom Pro Melts in Applause the colour is stunning, a shocking pink but I just can’t get on with the formulation. It some how manages to highlight any dry patches while being super sticky and messy. If you rub your lips together you are then left with an odd patchy coverage which looks so strange. The second is a sister brand of Freedom, I heart makeup with their lip sorbet. The product itself, I cant argue with but just look at it! I used it once and it completely fell apart onto the floor. Yes, it was only about £3 but that is beside the point, I should have paid more and picked up one from EOS or Balmi. Maybe I just got a bad one?
Last on my list is the Air Mat Foundation from Bourjois. First of all don’t get me started on the shade range, this is a massive bug bear with this brand and there is no excuse to have such limited shades in 2016. I picked up shade 2 Vanilla, which is the closest shade to the shade I am in their other foundations, or so I thought. This has got to be the yellowest foundation ever, I am talking Marge Simpson yellow. It claims to be high coverage, it isn’t, its medium at best. It clings to any dry patches and gives a flat matte finishe. It claims to last 24 hours and that it eliminates shine, if you are oily expect this to last about 6 hours at it’s very best. It also has such a strong perfume scent. Sorry Bourjois, its a no from me. I’ll stick to Revlon Colour Stay for a real full coverage, long lasting high street foundation.
So this has been a bit a rant from me butt I have been brutally honest. I can safely say that these are now going in the bin.
What products do you regret buying recently? Have you tried any of the products above and loved them? I’d love to hear from you if you have.
