Products I Regret Buying

No comments:

In the quest for those "holy grail" products I have make some unfortunate purchases that haven't exactly worked out for me. I should note, not all of these products were bad per say, they are just items that didn't work for me or I just don't seem to use. One (wo)man's trash is another's treasure though, so perhaps they may work for you!

Costal Scents 88 Matte Palette - I think most people who were into beauty blogs circa 2009 probably own this palette. To be clear, I have nothing against the actual shadows. I actually use some of them quite frequently. But considering that I use maybe 3/11 of the rows, I think it might have been better to go for something a little less colourful. Plus, it's massive so there is no way this would ever leave my house.

Alberto Make It Straight Blow Dry Lotion - Back in the day I thought this may be a cheaper alternative to my beloved L'oreal Hot Straight Smoothing Creme but I'm not sure why I ever strayed. This stuff was more like a thick gel that made my fine hair feel heavy and thick, but not in a nice way.

NYC Cream Blush Stick in Plaza Pink - Don't get me wrong, this is a really beautiful colour, I just have no clue how to make the product work. How do you apply it so it blends out, looks natural and doesn't just disturb all of the foundation below? Who knows, maybe I'm just not a cream blush kind of girl but if you have any suggestions please do tell!

Aussie Awesome Volume Hairspray - This stuff is hardcore, seriously. When it says maximum hold it means maximum hold. It smells great, but I think it's just a little bit too much for me. You may be able to see the dust on the bottle and I think that gives you an indication on how often it makes it out to play.

ELF Complexion Perfection Powder - I bought this after a rave review by the then lollipop26, now buy now, blog later and I've used it maybe a handful of times over the past 5 years or so. I'm not sure I really notice the difference between this and a standard powder, and generally I like my powders with a little bit of colour, as in skin colour, so it rarely gets to see the light of day.

Pantene Fine Hair Solutions Volumizing Mousse - You know the reputation mousse has of giving stiff crunchy looking hair? Well this one sure lived up to that. I used this multiple times trying to make it work, but no go. I think it's time for this one to go to a new home, though I'm not even sure if I would feel okay pawning it off on someone else. I've since found a product that shattered all my crunchy hair notions of the mousse category, you can check out my review here.
