So far, my blog has been about products I love and products I think everyone should own. But today I’m gonna talk about products I regret buying. Spread the awareness yall! I think my main message from this post is to ALWAYS read reviews before purchasing any beauty products, and use your discretion when buying it. If I had read the reviews about these products before I bought them, then I never would have bought them in the first place because these all had pretty bad reviews. But learn from my mistakes!
*DISCLAIMER: These are products that haven’t worked for me and products I really don’t like. If these have worked for you, then awesome. Not trying to put anyone down in anyway for liking something that I don’t like haha.
Ardell Brush On Lash Adhesive
This product is the reason why I will never sacrifice quality for price EVER again. I’ve mostly used DUO or Revlon lash glue, but the day I bought this, I decided I’d rather pay $3 instead of $7. BIGGEST MISTAKE OF LIFE. First of all, this glue dries SO. FAST. So if you don’t apply the lash as soon as you apply the glue, you’re gonna find yourself having to re-apply glue. Also the glue doesn’t dry tacky, it dries crusty and hard. So it is so painful taking this off your eyelid at the end of the night, and I’ve ruined the band of a pair of lashes trying to remove the glue. Nor to mention that if you get this in your eye it BURNS. Literally burns. It feels like you have literal acid in your eye, which makes your eye tear up, and this glue isn’t waterproof, so it ruins the stickiness and you gotta go through the process of reapplying again. Ugh. I’ll keep this just in case I ever run out of glue but I will NOT be reaching for this ever.
Rimmel London Wonder’Lash Waterproof
I love anything with Argan oil in it, which is why I was compelled to buy this mascara. But then when I used it, I was extremely disappointed. By extremely disappointed I mean that this is the worst mascara I’ve ever used lol. It didn’t do anything for my lashes. It didn’t lengthen or define them. Even when I curled my lashes, it would make them droop. Real talk the only thing this did for me was maybe darken my lashes (I mean they’re already black so how much darker can they get…) and left me looking like a raccoon throughout the day. I don’t know why Rimmel hasn’t just discontinued this already…
Essence How To Make Nude Eyes makeup box
I’ve written a MOTDs that feature this eyeshadow palette, but now that I think of it, I really do regret buying this palette. The shadows are not very pigmented and of the six shades you get, all of them are shimmery and are very close in colour. This is not to get confused though because I think other people may really like this palette, especially someone just starting out, but I think I would’ve benefitted more if I used the money spent on this palette on something else.
My Favorite Night Balm
This is from Bath and Body Works and their Co Bigelow Apothecaries line. You are supposed to apply this before you sleep for “intense overnight moisturization”. While it did provide some moisturization, I wouldn’t say it was intense. I prefer using Vaseline on my lips before bed, and that’s what I’ll be sticking to and spending my money on from now on.
I hope this was a bit helpful for you guys. If you’re ever on the look out for new things to by, now you know a few products to avoid. Let me know if you have any products that you regret buying and I will definitely read reviews and maybe avoid them myself. Have a good night!
