I’m sure most of you are familiar with the Youtube topic of products people regret buying. I think it’s a really good topic and I thought I would share what products I regret buying.
Buxom Samantha’s Smoky Eye:
I got this set on sale at Sephora for $20 back in August. I thought that was a really good deal for a full size lip gloss, eyeliner, mascara, and blending brush. However, I was utterly disappointed in the quality of the products. The eyeliner was hard to use and smudged alot and eventually just broke so I had to throw it out. The brush was rough and scratchy and did not blend well at all. I much prefer the ELF studio line blending brush for $3.00. The lip gloss may be a good size but I rarely wear lip gloss (I’m a lipstick kinda gal) and the plumping formula is uncomfortable, especially when I already have pouty lips. The mascara was probably the best product from the whole kit and I’m glad it was full size but the formula barely did anything for my lashes. Overall, I think I could have spent $20 towards something I actually used.
Okay, so this is a much hyped product and I know so many people absolutely love it (and it has worked wonders for my boyfriend), but as my skin is super sensitive and dry, it did not work for me. Even with the “sensitive” brush head, it was just too harsh and made my skin dryer and flaky. Pretty disappointed especially since it cost $119.
Simple Kind to Skin Vita Vitamin Day Cream:
As I’ve stated, I have extremely sensitive skin so I was super excited with the launch of Simple products in the States. However, I developed a rash after using their day cream that took about two weeks to fully subside. Needless to say, this was a waste of $10.
M.A.C. Look in a Box “Rocker Chick”:
This set was around $50 and cames with eye shadows in Electra (frost, silver with icy shimmer) and Black Tied (velvet, black with silver sparkle). I think M.A.C. is a bit overrated and I honestly almost never reach for these colors. It also came with a lipstick in hue, which is a frosty, soft, nude, pink that is actually quite pretty but looks awful on me. It also came with a lipglass in oyster girl, which is a pearly pink, which again is too nude for me and since I don’t like to use gloss anyway was a let down. The eye kohl in smolder smudges like crazy and has no staying power, but I still keep it around just in case. The Dazzle Lash Mascara in Black Dazzle was pretty but honestly nothing special to me. This kit reinforced my opinion that M.A.C. is pretty unimpressive (no offense to anyone who loves Mac products).
What products do you regret buying? I “tag” anyone who reads this to do their own post about what products you regret buying and why.
Thanks for reading!
