Products I Regret Buying

Hey there! I was trying to find an excuse for every thing that hasn't worked for me as if it's my fault they didn't do it's job. And well, in someway I still think I'm doing something wrong. :3

Anyways, when I buy stuff I always check on the web what kind of reviews each of them have and if they're any good I buy it then. But sometimes, I buy stuff without doing a thorough research. My bad!

Elf 32 pc Eyeshadow Palettes

So... I got two of them(Natural, Brights) and neither of them impressed me. I mean they're not completely bad but when I use neutral shades and try to blend it out it just doesn't blend out nicely. The consistency of the shadows feel like dry dirt, to be honest. As I said, they're not that bad especially not for a simple look. You know, without complicating too much. Maybe with a better primer they would do a better job. 
Also, the other colours(especially in the Brights palette), the shadows - they don't seem to be the same as they look in the pan. Especially after blending. They seem to fade out.

If I had the chance to buy them again, I wouldn't. They're not that expensive and I got them while Elf(UK) had their 50% sale offer, but still. I'd pass.

Elf Eyelid Primer

I actually did quite a research for this one but this is just not working out. Eyeshadows don't seem to be more intense and it's really hard to pack on other colours after applying the first one. I didn't notice my shadows to crease so I guess that's a plus. The consistency of it is very watery so I might have got the one from the bad batch. I truly don't know, it's just not what I expected.

I would buy this again just to see if the first one was just from the bad batch and to compare them. I mean, it's really inexpensive. 

Catrice Glamazonia Blushes

I love Catrice to death and it's probably my favourite brand but these were just wrong for me. Yup, I bought two... This one is not really their fault, it's mine. I picked up two shades that would never suit me. I'm quite pale and these are extremely pigmented. Soooo... I kind of look like a clown. And it's really hard to use it with a light hand cause they're matte and kind of hard to blend. So I have to blend it with force and power(?) and by the time I blend it out nicely, my cheeks are glowing. And not in a good way.

Would I buy this again? No way, well I were tanner or if I had darker skin. Besides, it was a limited edition. :P

Catrice KOHL Kayal Pencil

Again a purchase I didn't think through. I honestly don't know what was I thinking while buying this. Maybe cause it was on sale... :P This pencil kind of smudges(but almost every pencil I have smudge on me, you see, I have very watery eyes ._.) but they're not bad. I have it in the other colour. But man... Lime green? Not for everyday obviously, it could work during summer but still, this is so not me. :D

I wouldn't buy this again cause for one, they discontinued it that's why it was on sale. I'd buy other colours though. :)

Vivo Under Eye Roll-On Concealer

I am very picky about my concealers and this one didn't make the cut. It creases a bit and doesn't do much for my dark circles. It is also quite oily and it smudges my mascara on my bottom lashes. I am not big on touching up my concealer just anywhere so I need a good concealer that'll stay on for a good amount of time. And sadly, I would say this is not a long-lasting one. 

I probably wouldn't buy this again. Just doesn't work for me.

MUA Sheer Lip Gloss Tubes

I adore MUA, especially their eyeshadows. They're absolutely amazing for the price. I can't really remember why I got this, I don't like glosses in tubes to begin with. And I don't like this one cause it's too sticky for me. I feel like when I have this on, it's like I have the whole tube(a bit exaggerating :P)  on my lips, feels really heavy and sticky on top of it. If you're not easily bothered by stickiness this gloss is okay, it is inexpensive too. I gave it to my mom and she doesn't mind it. :)

I personally, wouldn't buy this for myself again just cause the sticky feel really bothers me.

MUA Eyebrow Pencil

I used this a couple of times and I have kind of mixed feelings about it. I consider it to be a kohl type  of pencil. Not so much suitable for brows, but works fine as an eye pencil. So what I'm trying to say is that if you fill in your brows with it they look really harsh and too dark. It didn't go to waste though, I used it quite a bit on my waterline.

I have found a better brow pencil so I wouldn't buy this again for my brows.

Revlon Lip Butter 'Peach Parfait'

I kind of regret buying this for one reason. It has shimmer. A lot of it! It is a nice colour and my lips don't feel chapped so much after applying it, but the shimmer bothers me a lot. :( I still wear it around the house and when I go for a walk or something like that. I hope the shimmer won't bother me forever... :( Cause I kind of like it...

Well, I have couple of other colours on my wish list cause I really like the formula of these. So I would buy a different colour perhaps. :)

Essence Paper Print Manicure

I did a post on this, you can check it here. I am still sure I did something wrong and that it's my fault that didn't work. But at the same time, how hard can this be? Anyways it was a waste of time... I tried really hard again with other print and that didn't work either. :( So... Yeah.


Maybe I'd try a different print? I don't know, I'd probably skip on this and buy a lipstick instead. :D

Maybelline Color Tattoo 'Timeless Black'

I have bought this to use as a gel eyeliner. And it worked fine for a while but every time I used it it was getting drier and drier. So now I can't even use it as a base because it is too dry. It is a shame cause it didn't smudge on me and it lasted a long time. So it is kind of a waste, it isn't that expensive but still... It's more than half left. :/

I'd pass on this and just go for the L'oreal gel eyeliner. It is more expensive but it is good. 

This is pretty much it. Not many things are unloved in my collection. I try to find a way to work with everything I have so it doesn't go to waste, but these... Well I can't do much with them sadly. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed it. :)

Take care! :)



  1. Nothing worse then spending money on a purchase and then having it suck so much you regret it.
