Products that miss the mark

I always share my favourite products and things I love but never talk about products that just aren't worth it. So I thought for a change I'd share products that just miss the mark in my opinion.

Makeup Revolution Palette
This I really really wanted to love and the colours come out lovely on your fingers but when it comes to using a brush and transferring to the eyelid... the letdown.. it's just not as pigmented as it should be and when on the lids most of the shades look identical on the eye. Just really let down by this palette. It looks lovely, the packaging but that's about as good as it gets. I was also let down by the size of the shadows, maybe I was expecting too much but when I opened it I was shocked at how small the little circles actually are.

Makeup Revolution blush palette
This one I had high hopes for, it's so cheap and I LOVE the contor palette they do! BUT every shade includes a shimmer which means you have shimmery cheeks and not in a 'glow' sense.. just shimmery blush like something out of the 90's.. not in a good way :(

Garnier Eye Roll 
I use this one everyday, it is nice and cooling but in terms of making any difference to under the eyes, nothing. You can't tell if I use it one day or don't use it the next, it doesn't de-puff or lessen the dark circles, just no difference at all. Such a shame, it sounded so good but it just doesn't do a thing other than feel nice and cool.

Benefits Porefessional
This one I actually gave up on my full size one and gave it away, I SO wanted to love it, everyone seems to love it but for me it just doesn't work. It leaves my skin feeling weird and not in a good way, my pores look identical to without using it, I see no difference.

Maybelline Lash Sensational
I've heard nothing but good about this mascara, people claiming it's better than false lashes. I have so many mascaras but never one to miss out on a good one I got it... better than lashes? No. Better than my other mascaras? No. This for me was really disappointing, the more you apply the clumpier it gets. So when you're trying to lengthen and separate you run the risk in entering clump-zone and having to take it all off again. For me I really wouldn't recommend it, at all. I actually gave it away.

What hype products have you come across that just don't live up to expectations?

  1. Whole heartily agree with you regarding the benefit porefessional and the lash sensational. Both awful products! I use a la Roche posay primer now and have gone back to my old reliable Dior mascara!

    1. Yeah! I'm shocked the hype they had. Oh I remember my Dior mascara I'll have to get another one soon.

  2. It's so disappointing when products let you down. I have a sample of the benefit porefessional upstairs and was quite excited to try it out. But it sounds like it may be a bit of a let down.

    1. Luckily it's a sample and you didn't get the big version at least. But it may work for you? Some say it's amazing, I am baffled how ha.
