I recently asked my followers if they would be interested in reading a blog post featuring the products that I regret buying. The response was overwhelming so obviously I thought it only fair that I would share some of my regretful purchases before I dispose of them; never to use again!
Boring stuff: This post is based on my personal opinion and experiences with these products. Individual results and opinions will vary.
Manicare Glass Perfume Atomiser.
|Manicare Glass Perfume Atomiser.|
I love perfume a lot and I like to carry it around with me everywhere so I can re-apply it at anytime.
This atomiser was more than disappointing! It is easy to fill, and easy to empty, as in it leaks everywhere. I was heartbroken when I went to get it out of my handbag a couple days after filling it with my beloved Chloe de Roses perfume to find it empty.
RRP $11.99 AUD.
E.L.F Lengthening & Defining Mascara.
|E.L.F Lengthening & Defining Mascara.|
This has got to be the worst mascara I have used in my life. It was super runny and wet and applies in such a way that it looks like I have fewer lashes after application than I had before putting anything on.
I can't help but wonder, did I just get a dodgy one? Because I can't imagine a cosmetic brand releasing a mascara like this, it just seems a little strange to me.
RRP $3.00 AUD
Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation.
|Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation.|
I can almost hear the hissing and gasps as I write this. I really liked this foundation when I first got it, but not anymore. I have grown out of love with this. It oxidises into a very orange tone on my face throughout the day and the cakey finish just doesn't do it for me. The colour range available is also pretty miserable and I went as far as buying two shades to mix together in the hope of achieving a decent colour. No luck for me unfortunately.
I just don't get the hype around this foundation. I would choose my Revlon Colorstay as a drugstore alternative to this any day.
RRP $19.95 AUD (30ml).
Joico Joiwhip Firm-Hold Design Foam.
|Joico Joiwhip Firm-Hold Design Foam.|
I rely on mousse to hold my curls when I use my curling wand and provide me with amazing bouncy volume. This however, provided me with hair that I can only describe as a flop.
I was recommended this product at a hair salon and didn't hesitate to buy it as I usually find that Joico satisfies my hair care and styling needs, this sadly did not. I tried it on a number of occasions hoping that it would start to perform or perhaps that I wasn't using enough. Nothing changed. The Joico mousse just didn't hold a curl or do anything that I could notice if I am brutally honest.
RRP $25.95 AUD (300ml).
