Disappointing Products #1


This is my very first Disappointing products post, and although I feel bad writing negative things about a product, I mean it in an advisable and constructive way. Perhaps you were thinking of buying a product in this post, but now you will be aware that maybe this product doesn't work for me. What I'm trying to say is I'm not just being irrelevantly negative about a product haha! Just putting the disclaimer out there, anyway let's get on with the post!

Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Gloss in 'Candy Floss'
This lip gloss is not just any old ordinary lip gloss. Oh no, to my surprise when I first applied it, I felt a tingling sensation in my lips; kind of like pins and needles but in my lips. This is what is supposed to happen as that is the feeling it gives when the lip gloss is plumping up your lips. I'm not going to lie I was expecting Kylie Jenner lips explosions, I mean a real noticable difference, but that difference just wasn't there for me. The colour is nice, but it has a sticky and thick consistency and the tingling thing just didn't float my boat.

Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream in 'Petal'
I've mentioned this in my Matte Lips post which you can view here if you are interested. I think the main thing that I am having troubles with about this product is the shade. The shade is a pale pink, which for a matte lip cream I don't think it is ever going to work. When I applied it, I could feel my lips feeling very dry and becoming flaky. Also, as the colour is quite pale, it applied unevenly and a little bit patchy. I think in other bolder and darker shades, these matte me lip creams could be very nice. But they just didn't work for me.

Seventeen Hide and Conceal Concealer
This is quite an old product of mine. I don't really use it anymore purely because I don't think it's very good. It's one of those twisting concealers, where the product comes out at the top through the brush. I don't mind that abiut this concealer, it's the formula I dislike. When I applied it, it was runny and didn't even conceal much. Very low coverage and once blended left quite a patchy consistency on my skin. Overall I wouldn't repurchase it and I wouldn't recommend it either.

Barry M Lip Paint in 52
If you know me, you'll know I love a bit of Barry M. This was one of the first lipsticks I ever bought and oh I how regret it now. I can't believe I thought I neon pink lipstick would look cool on a 12 year old girl. Hahah but seriously, it's not even the shade that puts me off, well actually the fluorescent fushcia isn't really a good look, but it's the matte finish. I find this lipstick to be quite drying and it sticks to my dry patches my lips. I actually really like the Barry M lipsticks as they're not all like this, most of them are actually very moisturising.

Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream
There are some products in Benefit which are a hit, and some which are a miss. For me the It's Potent Eye Cream just does nothing to me and is not worth however much it retails for. Luckily I didn't buy the full size as I got a mini-size in a gift set. It's supposed to brighten up your eye area, but whenever I use it that doesn't happen. If I do use it, it will most probably be as a moisturiser. This eye cream just isn't worth it.

So they are all the products that disappointed me. Thank you for reading this blog post! I hope you enjoyed it and have a nice day, bye!

  4. I tried the Sexy Mother Pucker but at the same time I had a sample of the Urban Decay equivalent and I preferred it so I would have to agree with you there...
