I am very picky when it comes to my beauty stash. I usually put a lot of thought into what I want and what I like despite being an impulsive shopper. My lipstick shades are carefully chosen, each product in my makeup collection has been really ‘wanted’ by me. I shop high-end and drug store products in equal measure and most of the products in my stash are amazing. However there’s a bunch of products that I own that just didn’t do it for me. I actually tried my best to like them yet I just couldn’t so I decided to make a post out of them and share it with you lovelies.
In no particular order…
2. NYX LIPSTICK IN PARIS
Nyx lip products have been raved about by so many bloggers but I just can’t seem to like the formula of both these products. It’s way too creamy and sloppy for my liking. My review for both these and swatches HERE.
I got this at the Singapore Airport (You’d know about my en route shopping habits by now) during a transit. After loitering around the cosmetics store for a while and making the sales-woman follow me around for at least an hour (In my defense I didnt ask her to do that) I thought it would be not right to go off without actually buying something *don’t judge; I’d probably not do that again…I was young and stupid* so I got this travel makeup kit by VS. It cost me if im not wrong 50 SD and comprises of everything you’d want in a travel kit including a wide range of eyeshadows. I am not usually this negative about products but this set has the worst makeup formulas I’ve ever seen.
Once again this is a foundation that most people rave about and I can see why. The glowing finish is in fact very beautiful. My biggest problem with this one is I got the wrong shade for my skin #MyBad. The sales woman swore that this suited me better than the darker shade and since I almost never wore foundation before I wasn’t very sure of how to choose the right color. Thank god I’ve learnt the foundation lesson, we all do learn it at some point don’t we. My other issue with this is I prefer light/medium coverage but this seems more medium/full coverage. It is a good foundation but i got on the wrong foot with it.
This was something I have had since my teenage years (around at least 10 years ago) and never used it. I knew nothing about makeup back then. This again was bought at a The Body Shop Store in Singapore. I went in to get myself a replacement for the compact powder I was using back then also from The Body Shop. Back then I knew absolutely minimum on makeup and I relied heavily on the sales woman to help me around the store. The sales woman gave me this bronzer and swore to me this was the perfect face powder for me. Looking back I don’t know if she was that incompetent or just offensive! P.S. I didn’t know what a bronzer was back then. In terms of using it as a bronzer, it isnt that great looking especially with the gold sparkles in it.
I promise I don’t have anything against CD, I do like some of their products which I think are great but this one is not one of that. It’s not a reliable eyeliner and it’s formulated really bad. I will not say too much on this since I have said it all in my review on it HERE.
I got this just as it was first released and I dint know how to use it *yikes* and google didn’t have the answers. I wasnt a fan of how it felt and soon forgot about it.
I love my eyeliners’ (in case you’ve not noticed that). I experiment on so many of them in different brands and colors. This one just doesn’t work for me and Id chose a drug store liner anytime over this one. I’ve reviewed this liner HERE in case you want to give it a read.
Hope you enjoyed this post.
Keep Smiling! Xx
