Disappointing Products #1

Wednesday, 13 May 2015


This is the first time I've done a disappointing products post, I feel like they can be really negative and I love talking about products I've been loving, so this is a bit different. However, its always good to get the opposite opinion. I have four products that I found to be pretty disappointing. Please don't judge on my personal opinions because a lot of people may love these products, this is just how I've found them. I hope this could potentially be helpful.

Seventeen Cheek Stamp - This isn't so much the product, just the packaging. I did a post a long time ago about this, foolishly I did a review when I'd hardly tried it, (silly me). Essentially the packaging has a stamp on one side, with a spring in the lid so you can literally stamp the blusher, which is in the other end of the packaging. I find it fiddly to try and get the stamp to pick up enough product on. Sometimes the spring gets stuck and you can't even reach the product, and its all a bit to much effort really. However, I do love the colour of the blush. Just annoying packaging.
Benefit Benetint - I do only have the sample size of  this, but I have tried this both on my cheeks and on my lips, both equally as bad to be honest with you. When you put it on your cheeks as a cheek tint you have about 2 seconds to try and blend it in before it dries, and then you're left with  a bright red mark smeared across your cheek that takes a lot of scrubbing to get off. Then on my lips, it sort of just sinks in and you're left with your original colour lips. It also gathered under my top lip and stained underneath it, and again I couldn't get it off for the life of me, more scrubbing. Very irritating.
Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer - Again, I don't hate the product, I actually am quite fond of it, great coverage. Just the packaging, again unfortunately. It has a brush like applicator on the end so you really have to squeeze the tube before anything comes out. Its really hard to squeeze product out onto this silly little brush thing, and it gets awfully messy.
Benefit They're Real Mascara - I couldn't 100% get on with this mascara at all. I love how much volume it gives my lashes and the length is incredible. However, it is a complete nightmare to remove at the end of the day. The last thing I want to be doing at the end of a long day is scrubbing at my eyes until they get irritated. Another thing about this, is throughout the day I would find little clumps of mascara in my eye. Small bits just crumble off into my eye and it get extremely irritating. I definitely could have done with out that. If it wasn't so crumbly, and hard to get off I would have loved this. Definitely a Benefit Roller Lash fan.

What are some of your disappointing products?
