Hey everyone! Hope you are doing well, sorry the blog has been a bit slack as of late. Life has become very busy, this summer has certainly been a plot twist but I am enjoying it nonetheless!
These posts are pretty popular in the youtube world and blogosphere, I thought I might as well add my own take on the whiny, negative, 'products I regret buying' trend.
Herbal Essences Body Envy Mousse: I don't even remember why I purchased this in the first place. Honest to god it was so random. And especially embarrassing because I pride myself on being frugal! Anywho...this mousse didn't do anything for my hair (which is naturally flat). It promised body, volume, I envisioned something like the women in the commercials...but this product did no such thing. On top of that it smells very chemical-y *eeeewwww*
Lancome Eye Shadow Quad: This came in a gift set and I was very excited to try it. The colours are wearable and pigmented. Unfortunately (as the photo demonstrates) there is a TON of fallout and therefore these shadows are difficult to use.
Clinique Up-Lighting Liquid Illuminator: This colour isn't complimentary for my fair skin tone. It is kind of peachy with rose hues. It might work for someone with darker colour but it just didn't look right on me. Also, I found the product very streaky and it took a lot of blending to make it look (somewhat) natural.
Philosophy Marshmallows for Toasting Lipgloss: I loved the shimmer in this gloss, it is finely milled and looks lovely on the lips! However it is the stickiest gloss I have every used! And similar to the Herbal Essences mousse...the smell only contributed to my negative impression. It smelt more like burnt to a crisp marshmallows rather than the perfectly toasted ones I had in mind.
Did you like this post? I had mixed feelings about doing it because it is sooo complain-y!
