Disappointing Products


Hi guys ! Happy Friday ! How has your week been ?

Today I am sharing some disappointing products with you guys. I know disappointing product posts can sometimes get a little negative - if these products work amazing for you please leave me a tip how you perhaps use it differently  - because let's be real no one wants to buy make-up to unhappy about it .

HudaBeauty #FauxFilter Foundation in 100B Milkshake 
You have no idea how excited I was about this foundation when I ordered this from Cult Beauty . I read so many great reviews that I couldn't wait to try it. It looks so high end and even looking at this photo breaks my heart.  Sadly on me this foundation doesn't work at all. The scent didn't bother me - but oh boy ! It feels heavy on my skin (like I am wearing a THICK layer of foundation ) ... but doesn't make me look flawless sadly. I feel my BB Cream gives me better coverage (although it could be because I used a beauty blender ) . I wish it didn't feel so heavy . 

Essence You Better Work! Gym Proof Primer
When I first posted this primer everyone was super excited to read my thoughts on it. Don't get me wrong - I LOVE Essence goodies . It's one of my go to brands. But my skin doesn't like this primer. This is a thicker blue primer and I think it might be the sunscreen in this primer that breaks out my skin like crazy . It does help with helping sweat control to a stage but after four tries and getting small bumpy texture on my skin every single time after using it I just can't use it anymore. 

MOOGOO Natural Cow Lick Lip balm
I got this while paying at the pharmacy while sick as the lady in front of me raved about how amazing it was. Someone beeswax based products doesn't really help to hydrate my lips at all. This is also scented with Citrus Oil which I suspect irritates my lips a little bit too. Is it bad overall ? No . I just don't like it at all. Which is sad as it was kind of pricey for a lip balm.  
Essence Glow To Go Illuminating Setting Spray
I LOVE Essence Settings sprays - so when Essence released this recently I HAD to pick it up . Sadly - for me I don't love it. This contains glitter particles so I find glitter all over my face a little annoying. If you like your face looking like a unicorn puppy licked you all over - then yes you'd love it . If you like a normal setting spray without glitter you won't like this. Will I still use it ? Yes . But mostly over a weekend where I won't mind a little glitter. 

Do you perhaps have any tips for me how to use these products differently ?? Any products you recently used that disappointed you ??

  5. I read mixed reviews about the Essence primer, some people love it, some not. I guess it depends on the skin's type to work, I would love to give it a try and see how it works on my skin. Happy Saturday xx

  7. I always feel a little hesitant to bash cosmetics for not working because I feel self-conscious about using these right. For some reason I always blame myself for things not working. My worst product of all time has to be the hair-conditioner I got from Syoss - what a waste of money!

    1. Sometimes a product that works AMAZING on someone doesn't work at all on someone else. But sometimes a disappointing post is good to see other people's reviews. I feel sometimes people feel they need to praise a product or brand to get freebies - but people like a honest opinion to see what didn't work for someone.

  8. I'm surprised by the HudaBeauty foundation. I've heard great things about it, but haven't given it a try yet.
