5 Products That Disappointed Me


    Hello my lovely friends ! Today I'm going to share with you my opinion about 5 products that I purchased and that disappointed me very much. Of course, I bought many products that in time proved to be useless, but for the moment I will just resume to my recent buys.

1. Catrice Light Reflecting Concealer - I bought this concealer with the idea to use it for my dark circles and lighten up a little my under eye area. Unfortunatelly, I couldn't use it because the formula is very thick and doesn't blend at all. I tried to apply it with my finger, with a concealer brush or with a sponge and none of these worked. In the end, I gave up and I decided to get rid of it.
2. Vichy Dermablend Foundation - I guess everyone knows this product or at least has heard of it. You all know that sometimes I complain about my skin issues and that I'm always in search of THE PERFECT PRODUCT that will make my skin look flawless. Well, if not flawless, at least close to that. I searched a lot online till I finally decided to give this foundation a go. Most of the reviews were positive, so I said why not. I chose the lightest shade, 15 Opal. Now, I was hoping for high coverage but I got none. Yeah, you read well, none. From all the reviews that I've read, I knew this foundation is high coverage but I guess mine came with a flaw. At first I tried to apply it only on my spots and not on all my face, to avoid the cakey effect but that didn't work either. When I did apply it on my entire face, it looked even worse than before so I decided to give up on it.
3. Catrice Ombre Effect Top Coat - Hmm, I don't have words to describe you how much I waited for this top coat to hit the stores. I love the ombre effect manicures and I really wanted to have this top coat in my collection and use it. Well, the moment arrived, I bought it and with joy in my heart I decided to use it right away. I applied a white base and after the base got dry, I applied one coat of this top coat. I have to say that the consistency of this top coat is very very fluid, almost like water. Although the white polish was completely dry when I appied this product, the brush somehow whiped away the color a little bit. On the bottle, Catrice claims that only 3 layers are enough for a strong color. Let me tell you that I applied 5 layers and the color wasn't even close to the color that they show on the bottle. I only tried this once but it was enough for me to form an opinion and to say that this product is a definately NO.
4. Clarins Everlasting Foundation - Now, I told you already that I'm looking for the perfect foundation, right ? Well, I thought that after the total fail that I had with Dermablend, this one might turn out to be THE ONE. Guess what ? It wasn't ! I even dare to say that for my skin, this foundation was a total failure. I have a mixted skin type and this foundation makes my face look so cakey that it scared me.
5. Max Factor - Wild Mega Volume Mascara - I was attracted by the nice packaging of this mascara and by the fact that is was on offer :) I decided to give it a go, although I do have my favourite mascaras that I don't tend to change. When I opened the tube it was already clear to me that we won't get along but I still decided to give it a go. No, it doesn't separate my lashes, on the contrary, it sticks them together. It doesn't add any volume to them or anything. This was my first mascara from Max Factor but after this experience, I am pretty sure it will be my last.
   In the end, I would like to point out that what I wrote up is only my personal opinion about these products. What didn't work for me, might work for you. I would like to know what are your personal opinions about these products, if you used them and what other products do you have on your NO WAY list.
  Till next time, take care and don't forget to smile !

  4. Nici mie nu mi-a placut Dermablend. Dar uite ca rimelul de la MF chiar ma tenta la un moment dat, mai ales ca toate rimelurile pe care le-am incercat de la ei mi-au placut.

    1. Poate o sa-ti placa Andreea, nu stiu ce sa zic... Mie imi place la nebunie Sexy Pulp de la Yves Rocher. Are periuta perfecta, separa genele, le alungeste si le ofera si volum. Periuta de la Wild Volume nu a facut decat sa le lipeasca una de alta :|

  5. Have you tried Estee Lauder Double Wear? In terms of coverage, it was the best for me, but I had issues with it, because it broke me out like crazy. But it was the best for a matte, yet natural coverage, that lasted more than 10 hours.
