Products I regret buying!

Monday, 27 April 2015

Hey beauties! 
Now i'm not usually one to moan or be quite negative, however this is probably the most negative blog post i'll do. (Don't hold me to it, we don't know what the future holds.) But for the moment, I feel like it will be. I've seen a loads and loads of 'regret' posts and youtube videos and some of the products in there you just think like how could someone regret that, it sounds like it should be SO GOOD. But I guess you can't like everything, and not everything is going to do what it says on the tin. 

So after a long long time of watching the video's and reading the blog posts about L'Oreal True Match foundation, I finally caved and bought it. And I genuinely don't think I've been so disappointed in a product, given the fact it was so hyped up, I had SUCH high hopes. I just cannot get on with this foundation, and everything about it makes me want to like it but I just can't. It doesn't last long on my skin, I find the coverage extremely weak and just the formulation I just cannot get along with. I feel like i'm the only person in the world to have written something bad about this foundation haha oh well.

I was quite a big fan of the Benefit Oxygen WOW foundation, but the Benefit They're real mascara was my ultimate holy grail from this brand. And like the foundation, I again had high hopes for this concealer. To be honest I haven't seen lots of reviews about this product, but I had seen a few which sort of gave me the nudge like 'come on girl, get this product' So yet again, I picked it up in my local Debenhams. I get the name 'paste' it is like a paste, its really thick but not creamy enough personally to be a concealer? Its really hard to blend and I find its really chalky and creases easily. 

This last regret was an impulse buy, I was just scrolling through the Boots website one day and saw it and just though 'I'm onto something here!' I hadn't seen anyone review it or even talk about it! I was so happy to try this product, I'd been trying to find an eyeshadow primer that wasn't going to put me into debt for a while. And given how inexpensive it was, I was more than happy to put it in my basket. But man, was I dissapointed. I'm not even surprised no one has written a good post about this product. The consistency is so thin and when you try and blend it almost comes off as you blend it, which completely defeats the object of the primer. It made no difference to my eyeshadows pigmentation or lasting power. Total dissapointment. 

What products do you regret buying?
