We all come across beauty products we don’t like from time to time. With some of these products I had such high expectations but got let down. Just because these products didn’t work for me doesn’t mean they won’t work for you. These are the products I will not be using again!
1. NYX HD CONCEALER – GREEN €8
As I have said in previous blogs I have rosey red cheeks, if I don’t wear makeup people always ask me ” you must be very warm” or say ” awh you are blushing”. Im 90% neither of them its just my natural face K? 🙂
I wanted to get a green concealer because the green will neutralize the red. I have used NYX products before so I thought this would keep up with their high standard of products. I was so wrong. It is very pigmented so it was really hard to blend into the skin. I would try work it in as hard as I could and do my usual foundation routine over it, you could still see the green concealer through my foundation. Definitely not using this again!
2. REAL TECHNIQUES CONCEALER BRUSH €12
So this concealer brush claims that the angled cut brush provides precision application to camouflage skin imperfections and create a spotless base for any look.Use it with a liquid or cream concealer, or foundation for complete coverage. I bought this to go with my green concealer but I also tried using it with my Catrice camouflage concealer. In my opinion it doesn’t apply the concealer well, it looks like it is taking the concealer off. I generally like to use to my fingers to blend in concealer as I feel I get the best effect from it that way. I like to pat the concealer into my skin not brush it over it.
I do not like it as an under eye concealer but I do like it to apply my contour concealer.
3. ESSENCE ALL EYES ON ME WATERPROOF MASCARA – €3
I don’t have the most beautiful eyelashes so I turn to mascara to enhance what I already have. This mascara just didn’t do it for me, I feel like it clumps the lashes I do have (not many) together so It looks like I have 4 solid lashes. With saying that I do like the wand and the deep black colour it does add a little bit of volume, I just don’t like the clumpiness.
Overall I don’t hate many products because I like to give them a chance. I usually buy really affordable ones anyway so I tend not to complain because at these prices you can’t complain!
I would really like to hear your suggestions so please comment on what you would like for me to review next.
