5 Disappointing Products.

Sunday, 24 May 2015
I am always talking about how much i like all of the products i use so i thought i would have a little moan (haha!) about some products that i didn't really get along with.


Rimmel Scandaleyes 
I bought this Rimmel liner because of the felt tip concept... I thought it might have made my eyeliner look neater but i was sooo wrong. When i applied the product it dragged along my eye lid. Once i did manage to add the product it was grey and not the jet black i wanted. I left it for a few weeks and went back to it again, trying to find a way to work with it. When i went to use it again it had pretty much dried up. I don't know if i had picked up a faulty one (if that is possible?) but this product didn't work for me at all.

Revlon Colourburst
This product was a massive disappointment for me! As you will have seen in my lipstick favorites (here) the Revlon colourburst crayon (in striking spectaculaire) is my favorite red, so when i saw this i fell in love with the colour and i thought the formula would have been the same. When i applied this on my lips it was just moving around and caking up, it felt horrible! It's such a shame because i really love the colour.

Bonjour Nail Enamel
Again, like the lippy above, i had used this product in different colours before and loved the result. When i went to apply this polish it was almost clear. I applied around 4-5 coats of it, making sure each coat was dry before i added the next layer, but for some reason it went very tacky. When it did finally dry i went to bed thinking i would have woken up with fresh nails. Instead i woke up with hair imprints and chips on every nail.

Lipcote
I actually bought this product around the time i got the Revlon crayon, thinking that some how this would help application. When i painted a coat of this onto my lips it was pretty painful. It really tingled. Not the kind of lip plumping tingle but a sharp prickling kind. I tried using this a few more times (with different lipsticks) but not only was the prickling uncomfortable, it didn't keep my lipstick any longer.

MUA Luxe London
This is probably the biggest disappointment of all, the MUA matte lip thingy...whatever it is meant to be. I thought this was going to be like the lip lacquers you see beauty gurus applying on Instagram and YouTube! It was a lot cheaper too so i thought i was onto a winner. I went to use it and it was cloggy and sticky! There's not much more to say about it. Maybe it was the colour that affected the formula i am not too sure.

Even though these products didn't work for me they might work for other people. This is just my opinions on them!


Do you own any products that you found disappointing?

  1. Oh no! I'm sorry you aren't impressed with your Revlon Colourburst. I'm really liking mine! I wonder if it is to do with the different colours? You know, like how nail polishes sometimes are weaker in certain colours.

    1. Its annoying :( I have the red one and i love it but this one just doesn't apply evenly :( I've put it down to being a brighter colour!

  3. Definitely think things apply differently in different colours, I wish companies would keep an eye on consistency before developing new products!

  4. I love Rimmel's liner range! I don't know if it's possible to pick up a faulty one? I haven't tried Revlon's range yet but maybe I'll put that off for a while! Love the honesty :)
