Disappointing Products

It's happened to all of us; we buy a product with high hopes and it just doesn't work out for us for whatever reason. I decided to share a few products that I found disappointing or that I flat out didn't like. But just because it doesn't work for me, doesn't necessarily mean it's a horrible product. A few products I mention are favorites among others, so keep that in mind! With that said, let's take a look!


Two foundations that I just can't bring myself to use is the Rimmel Clean Finish Matte Foundation and Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation. The one from Rimmel was super cheap, like under $5 at Walmart that I impulsively picked up and let me tell you; I regret it. It's a super thick consistency that is so hard to blend and is very dark and orange in tone even though it was one of the lightest shades.

I've heard rave reviews about Revlon Colorstay Whipped, and I LOVE the liquid foundation so I was super pumped to try it! But I was disappointed. I could not for the life of me figure out how to blend it so it wouldn't look so cakey and "foundation" looking. I tried my Beauty Blender, a variety of brushes and even my fingers! My fingers worked the best for by far but just still didn't look right. I've finally come to figure out that thicker, mousse foundations just don't work for me, so I will always be jealous of those who can look flawless wearing this foundation.

I'm not really picky about nail polish formulas, but this one by Salon Perfect is just not my fave. The shade is called Haute Pink, but it's really a neon orange. When I used it, it just did not apply evenly, looked clumpy and not smooth at all. I pretty much had to remove it 2 days later because it was driving me nuts.

Another Rimmel product I wasn't a fan of and was real sad about it was the Rimmel Keep Calm Lip Balm in Clear. The packaging is adorable and definitely suckered me in! But this straight up smells and tastes like melted plastic that stays with you for a while. It tastes so bad and is completely unusable for me.


Lastly, I was not feelin' the Wet n' Wild Fergie Take On The Day Eyeshadow Primer in A Little Party... or the Physicians Formula Organic Wear Jumbo Mascara. The WnW primer is gorgeous swatched, and has a silver-pink shimmer to it. By itself, I love it, but when I try to blend out shadows on top of it it just looked patchy, uneven and almost balled up on my lids. I like the regular nude color primer, but this does not work for me as a primer and I use it as a cream shadow instead.



The mascara has beautiful packaging and a plastic applicator which is my favorite! So I was expecting to love it, but I just didn't. It looked like I didn't put anything on my lashes! Even with 2-3 coats it did nothing for me; no volume, length and barley tinted my lashes black. *sigh*

That's all folks! What are some products that disappointed you?

  2. It's funny, I've never met anyone who did like the mousse formula foundations! I guess some people enjoy it, as brands keep making it, but just doesn't seem to be one of those things that work for many people. To me they always seemed too greasy.

    I'veactually really recently been disappointed by one of the Maybelline Color Tattoo shadows. I find it so difficult to work with, it's kind of... Gummy? It doesn't spread well across the eye. And I had heard so many good things about those shadows! Oh well.

    1. Yeah I just don't get mousse foundations and how people figure out how to make them look good. That sucks that one of the Color Tattoos didn't work for you! I find that sometimes cream shadows can be hard to work with, which kind of defeats the purpose of using a cream shadow for me.lol

  3. It's always so frustrating when products don't live up to expectations! I couldn't get on with the last mousse foundation I tried either, I can't work out what skin type they possibly could work for!

  5. I've heard such lovely things about the Revlon Whipped foundation, it's a shame that it didn't work for you! I will probably stay away from it since I hate cakey looking foundations :)
