Disappointing Products

Now I am going to start off by saying that I am not usually one to moan and all of my posts on my blog so far have been very positive, but I feel it is only right of me to share some products that I don't like too so you don't waste your money on them. 

If you think I am using these products in the wrong way than let me know, so maybe I can get some better use out of them. 

Lush Lip Scrubs: I was so disappointed that these have not worked out for me as I love most things I buy from lush. Now I don't know if it just me I just do not find these scrubby enough for me. All I want to do when I put them on is lick them back off again, and this is what I end up doing half the time. The other time I do scrub them in and I just don't feel like it does anything significant to my lips. They do taste good though! 

Maybeline Dream Lumi Touch: Now this isn't just a problem with this highlighting concealer but all highlighting concealers. They are just not light enough for me. I realise I have pale skin but most of the time I wear fake tan and even then it doesn't show up much unless I have really gone to town with the bronzer. 

Benefit Porefessional: Luckily, I have only ever had sample sizes of this and I don't think I would ever buy the full size version as this seemed to nothing for me. I applied just like I would a normal primer, however, I did not see a difference in pore size and it didn't make my make-up last any longer. So really, there is no purpose for this product for me. 

Barry M Eyeliner: I really don't know why I still have this as I have it for ages now. I don't know whether I have just got a particularly dry version of this but I feel like I have to press down so hard to get any product to show that it actually hurts my eyes. I prefer something that glides on a lot more easily. 

Have you got any suggestions on what I can buy to replace these? 

See you soon. 


  1. Oh it's such a shame when products disappoint us. POREfessional is so hyped, but I just find it to be quite slimey xx

    1. It actually is. I feel like I have wasted my money. I know I am so glad I only have the sample size and didn't spend all my money on the full size. xx

  2. I recommend Borjois Kohl eyeliner I find it quite soft and easy to apply and definitely lasts for ages too

  3. See I'm not a massive fan of the Lush lip scrubs either, as I don't actually find that they do much for my lips other than leave them sticky. :S

    I do love the POREfessional though. It doesn't hide my pores, but it does mattify my skin a little, which I love. :)

  4. It's a shame Porefessional didn't work for you as its one of my favourite primers.
