DISAPPOINTING BEAUTY PRODUCTS WITH ALTERNATIVES

Disappointing Beauty Products

Now and then, we all end up up with beauty products that we regret purchasing. Today's post is all about that! My opinion might save you some bucks but please be aware if one product does not work for me does not mean it won't work for you too.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

TOO FACED BETTER THAN SEX MASCARA

Let's start with the most controversial, since I have only and only read rave reviews about the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara! If you are reading this and agree with me, please ease my mind and let me know in the comments that I am not the only who does not like this cult-favourite mascara. This mascara does absolutely nothing for my lashes. And frankly speaking, what good a mascara is if it only works on already-amazing lashes.

Colourpop Topless Lippie Stix

COLOURPOP LIPPIE STIX - TOPLESS

I must say this in the beginning, I love Colourpop Lippie Stix. Their formula is so creamy and pigmented. I only have an issue with the shade Topless. Among the ones I own, Topless, is the only one which applies very streaky and gives a super patchy finish.

Ofra Beverly Hills Highlighter

OFRA HIGHLIGHTER - BEVERLY HILLS

Again another cult-favourite product that just doesn't work for me and such things boggle my mind. I find the Ofra Beverly Hills Highlighter very powdery, it emphasizes a lot of texture and does not even blend well. I also do not find anything out of the ordinary about the shade itself or the glow it tries to add.

Kiko Signature Eyemarker

KIKO SIGNATURE EYEMARKER

I don't know what I was thinking when I ordered the Kiko Signature Eyemarker. Do you see it's tip? The best thing I can do with it is to write headings on a piece of paper. It's just so stubby that attempting a clean line with it is a huge feat, let alone a whole winged eyeliner!

Colourpop Aventurine Crystal Liquid Highlighter

COLOURPOP CRYSTAL LIQUID HIGHLIGHTER - AVENTURINE

I got the Colourpop Crystal Liquid Highlighter on a whim. And I regret it ever since! Another one of those 'bleh' products. I find the formula very greasy and the highlighter just does not sit well whether I mix it with my foundation or apply in on the top. The concept is good, the price is great but the product not so much.

  1. I absolutelly loved this post! Not only did you point out products that didn't work for you, but you also gave some awesome alternative. I also really don't like the kiko signature eyemarker!

    Love,

  2. I don't have the best experience with the better than sex mascara too. I mean, it works okay for me, adds volume to my lashes but if I want to add a second coat the mascara starts smudging. Great and honest presentation!

  4. That Kiko eyeliner! You must have to be a professional makeup artist to get that to work - I've never seen such a fat nib! I love that you've provided alternatives to the disappointing products - great idea! x

  6. I totally agree with Too Faced, I liked this mascara but it wasn't worth it's price.

  7. 100% agree with you on Too Faced BTS mascara, it's horrid! The worst part is it flakes like crazy on me.
