We all do it, and by do it I mean get caught up in the beauty blogging hypes. We hear the words 'amazing' and 'have to have' and we get that niggling feeling that makes us want to part with our moo-la, well I used to anyway. This is my first disappointing products post, and that is genuinely because I don't really buy anything I haven't sampled and I tend to agree with most things I do buy. But, sadly that's not the case for these hyped up (anti)heroes...
I heard so many good things about the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation, I read around, I waited until the hype and somewhat settled and then went ahead and purchased. I do not like this AT ALL. I don't find it to have great coverage, it actually left my skin quite rashy and had absolutely no longevity at all melting off my face within a couple of hours. I really wish I had that £10 back.
Next up, we have blogger favourite Benefit's 'They're Real' mascara*...now I really do want to like this and despite it making my disappointing products list I probably will continue to use this every now and then. It does make my lashes look long and does enhance my already quite curled lashes, but the problem is it too melts off like no one's business. Not only that but I find the wand to be abrasive and the product also smudges leaving a not so flattering panda eye look. Oh, and it's a total pain in the backside to remove. Sorry Benefit, I really want to love it but alas I don't.
As for the L'Oreal Anti-redness CC Cream* and MAC's Shy Girl Lipstick, these are probably more disappointing based on my personal dislike of CC Creams and yellow toned nudes. I'm pale and this CC cream is just far too dark for my ghostly hue, plus I really didn't find it helped to reduce my red areas in the slightest. As for Shy Girl, yet again another blogger favourite that doesn't bode well with me. It's sallow tone just does nothing for my complexion and makes me look ill if I'm honest, however on other people it can be a really gorgeous nude so it just goes to show how personable beauty is.
Do you have any disappointing hyped products that you wish you'd never bought?
