Makeup I regret buying! #1

I had various titles for this post:
  • Makeup that made me look like a fool.
  • Makeup that sucks b****!
  • Makeup I wore that made my boyfriend say, "Yoo forreal sup with your face?!"
  • Makeup that aided me in furthering the broke state that I'm in.
  • I have a list of Makeup products that suck but the picture I present them in also sucks.   
They all sum up how I feel to be honest. 

I present to you the products that suck*:

*yeah these products suck to me but maybe on you they'll look FIYAHH!

1.YSL Babydoll Mascara is just such a fail. Normally I am a fan of YSL mascaras and count the YSL faux cils as my all time fave as I previously stated in My Makeup Wishlist (this is basically a just a repeat rant of what I said in that post). But this one just really doesn't float my boat. The plastic wand reminds me of a cleaning utensil that one could use to clean the inside of tight round crevices (eww).The formula is too thin and wet to give a thick generous coating. It doesn't volumise my lashes nor does it lengthen. The only thing it does is separate my lashes to a degree that I end up with eyelash line bald spots! WTF. Damn you Cara Delevigne! Why did your forehead beards lie to me so deep? Where art thou babydoll lashes?! 

2.Stila Acai Crush Lip and Cheek stain. (swatches underneath) Ok this had a promising start. A long lasting intense lip and cheek tint that reacts to the PH level of your skin to create a colour unique to you, thanks to the 'Acai Crush' and all that bull. It applies like any liquid stain however the formula of this is thicker, it's almost gel like. This means it takes longer to dry, however it applies unevenly due to the crap brush so you'll get parts of your lips that have dried and others that havent. As you can imagine this leads to an uneven finish. I'll have part of my lips a deep pink and others pale in comparison. When I put this on my cheeks I would get harsh lines, no matter how quick I move and how hard I try to blend it. It just leaves me with an obvious blush line! Also the pen itself is quite leaky, everytime I pulled the cap open it looked like there had been a crime scene between my palms! Stila, babes, you disappointed me.

3.My girl Victoria had a secret. She confided in me with her glossy packaging and pleasant rose scent that this Sheer Blush Cheek tint would give me the rosy glow of Adriana Lima. How she lied to me, oh how she lied. This patchy cheek tint is just awful. Maybe it's the way I apply it but I have tried numerous untensils, ok well just my fingers and different brushses, but it just always ends up patchy! Oh and this bugger broke me out on my cheeks. I DESPISE this product. Call me dramatic, but I can't even bear to look at this thing! I've actually stored it away far from my eyes, (ok I may have dropped this between my desk and my wall, not complaining..though I hope it doesn't burst and leak. I doubt this, but shoot. There is a possibility, I should just close this bracket now.) No recommendations para you!

4.Bobbi Brown Shimmer Blush in 4 Flame. I'm quite dark skinned so I picked this up thinking this will look lovely on my skin tone. However it just doesn't look good at all. It makes my skin look dirty, dirty and shiny. Ok there is nothing wrong with this product but it doesn't look good on me, therefore I regret buying, therefore it sucks!

Swatches of no. 2,3,4
(Ok this picture is such a bitch right now because the swatches don't look shabby at all. BUT BELIEVE ME I SWEAR I TELL THE TRUTH!)

5.My last product that sucks is the Revlon concealer in 06 Deep. Everyone has been raving over the Collection 2000 concealer but that only comes in four, quite light shades. I mean damn Collection 2000 you're really spoiling us with such a wide colour range, so much choices to choose from... Hats off to you for catering to a large audience of varied skintones! BRAVO -__- Anyways I am none of those FOUR shades. They should honestly widen their colour range! Instead I picked this Revlon one up in their darkest shade but this mother creases like a mofo under my eyes! It just doesn't work on my skin at all. Even on my chin blemishes it looks awful and it made my spots really itchy. Eurgh itchy spots are the worst, becuase you can't itch a spot, you just have to tap it gently or try to ignore it. Itchy feet over itchy spots anyday!! Can I get a Hi5? Anyone..hello? It annoys me that I spent £6.99 on this tube of waste. I could have bought a 20 piece share box of Chicken McNuggets and large fries for this. 

I swear I am usually not a moany little twerp! Life is all about experimenting and trying new things and I'm not gonna dwell on how pooey this post has been. But still I feel betrayed by my high hopes, I'm still bitter. You know I thought we'd last longer, I was gonna introduce you to my friends.. but no, I WAS DECEIVED!! 

Deception (An outrage!)
Disgrace (For shame!)
EVIL as plain as their lies on their case!
Deception 
Disgrace
They asked for trouble the moment I paid!

..lion king 2 anyone? No. Ok. Bye.

  2. Well you just saved me a few euros. I was interested in trying that concealer but there must be much better ones in the market. Maybe I'll try the Mac Pro Longwear then.

  6. LOLLLLLLLL omg, cheek/lip stains ARE THE WORST. I usually end up with obvious stains my lips/cheeks (as in, they refuse to blend out and I look like I'm pulling some leopard print on my cheeks), or half the product ends up on my fingers BECAUSE MY FINGERS OBVIOUSLY LIKE TO BLUSH.

    VICTORIA, WATS UR REEL SECRET FOR GLOWY CHEEKS ~_~

  16. love the conversational tone of this post. lol sorry to hear these products didn't work for you esp when some are quite pricey. omg if i had so many misses w/ relatively pricey items i'd would cry. thankfully sephora is super lenient on its return policies.

  17. I almost purchased that YSL mascara a few days ago-so glad I didn't! I have a sample and it seemed to work fine but now I'm definitely having to reconsider. And I agree with the Stila lip/cheek stain, I have one that's more orange-y and it's such a disappointment. It's a real gimmicky product, sadly :( It's just an impossible product to work with!

    Love your blog-it has such character and it's hilarious!
