Disappointing Products


Hey everyone!

Okay so my blog is basically one big chunk of rave reviews and praise-the-lord's but sometimes, you know, I just don't enjoy a product that much and when something's hyped up by everyone and I don't seem to get on with it, I'm kind of disappointed. Here are some of those products I've not been getting on with in the last months.

First of all there are two dry shampoos. You know how I'm very much attached to dry shampoos and I love the CoLab ones, but the Extreme Volume one just isn't for me. It's like a hairspray, but even more crunchy. It leaves my hair very stiff and unable to work with. This is an absolute no-go for me.

I had heard a lot about the Batiste coloured dry shampoos and before I had highlights in my hair, I used to have quite dark hair. I picked up the Dark&Brunette one and it worked okay during the day. What I didn't like about it is when washing it out, it is just disgusting. The brown residue coming out is plain filthy and I never used it again. I'm glad the regular CoLab dry shampoos really do work for me and don't leave any residue at all.

I received the Rimmel 60 Second Super Shine nail polish in 203 Lose Your Lingerie for free someday (it was a 40 year celebration of my local drugstore) so I was glad I could try it out. I had never tried any Rimmel nail polishes and I believe a lot of YouTubers love these. I don't know if it's the colour or the whole consistency of the product in combination with the wonky brush, but it sucked at applying evenly. It left the polish streaky and not opaque as it should be. Shame.

What I'm about to say is going to shock everyone but I have not experienced any major differences while using the Urban Decay All Nighter Make Up Setting Spray. If anything, it seems to move around my make up during the day. I think powders just work a lot better on my oily skin. I won't be repurchasing that one again, although I am still going to use it up. Luckily I only bought a travel size!

I had never tried any body butters from The Body Shop until I picked up this Coconut Body Butter, along with the Shea Butter one. This one is very oily, sticky and really doesn't sink into my skin as it should. I very much prefer the Shea Butter, which is soft, rich and moisturizes my skin so well, in stead of making it tacky. Such a shame because I really do love the smell of this!

Then we have the famous Maybelline Master Sculpt contour kit. Mine is in Light/Medium, I figured that one would suit me best because I'm not all that tanned in my face. It's just horrible on my skin. If it shows up at all, it shows up quite orange so I can't contour with it at all. The pigmentation is not good, people! I kind of wish I went for the darker one, but I didn't know when I got this, as I couldn't swatch it in store. The highlighter is also quite chalky and powdery and has massive fall out so it gets everywhere! It kind of puts me off to try the darker one. Everyone seems to love this one, still it's not something I will be using again and I will most definitely give it away!

Lastly we have the Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner in Beyond Blue. I have never tried the black one because I never felt the need to. When they came out with the coloured ones, that was just something else. This colour is oh so beautiful, but I just hate the formula. First of all I don't think this one is easy to apply at all, since you really have to squeeze out the product and pack it on, secondly it dries so fast you can't really go back in or correct if you make a mistake, then it just dries up and you either have to crumble it off or start your whole eye look again. It's also the worst to get off, because again, it dries up very thick and starts to crumble when I put my make up remover on. I really wish I loved it more because I was definitely planning on picking up all four colours if I did.

Are there any hyped up products you really don't get on with? Let me know down below!

Lots of love,
