Make-up I Regret Buying

I don’t have a tonne of products that I regret buying because I de-clutter quite often and give things that don’t work for me to friends and family to try instead. I also make sure to do a little bit of research before I buy something now and look for product reviews and recommendations. Even after doing this, some things still fall through the cracks.

Pat McGrath Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Blurring Under-Eye Powder
I had seen SO MANY great reviews about this product saying that it made your under-eyes look like a baby bottom. If dry as hell is how your babies bum looks, get some Bepanthen. If I’m having a good skin day I can get away with this powder but, in the winter when my skins at it’s driest, I haven’t got a prayer.

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder
Another powder that almost every single youtuber raves about. It’s a little drying but it’s quite a nice powder. Is it worth 32 of your well-earned Great British pounds? Absolutely not. There are so many cheaper powders out there that are just as good. One of my favourites is the Airspun Loose Face Powder. It’s a tenner and it’ll last you forever.

Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson Conspiracy collection
I know, I was that fool. I bought this collection before I stopped supporting the brand and if you are still supporting them, please do some research. The main palette itself has some shades that I do unfortunately enjoy, but they’re nothing special. There aren’t any unique shades that I don’t think I could get from any other, probably cheaper and less racist, palettes. The Mini Controversy has the same quality as Revolution makeup. That’s a lie….Revolution has better shimmers.

Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara Waterproof
Bailey Sarian is an absolute queen and I never want to doubt her but this mascara that she adores, I hate. I love a clumpy lash and this gave me some length but none of the volume I need. It’s the waterproof version she likes but it is the hardest thing in the world to get off your eyelashes. The only waterproof mascara I’d recommend is SportFX’s Game Changing Mascara because it’s a good mascara and it comes with it’s own remover so that you’re not scrubbing at your eye balls.

Hopefully 2021 doesn’t bring me too many more products I regret buying that steal my money but I can not wait to give more makeup a try this year! If any one has some absolute loves that they think I’d like, send me them because I want to give them all a try! And if there’s anything you really regret buying, let me know!

Stay safe.
