♥ Disappointing Products #2

I can't believe I haven't done one of these posts since August. I feel like I constantly have products that just don't work for me and i always end up giving things away to my friends because I just don't like them. I'm not saying that these products are damn awful and you shouldn't go near them, they just haven't worked for me, for one reason or another!

Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude Foundation
I don't know what I dislike more... the formulation of the foundation or the bottle and it's really weird applicator. I remember being obsessed with dream matte mousse when I first started wearing makeup, and this is from the same 'dream' line Maybelline do so I really wanted to try it out! I will use this up but it's one I'll reach for on really good skin days. It's the runniest texture I've ever found in a foundation and the drop applicator is useless. I use Becca Rose's technique and just use the applicator to apply straight to the face.

Maybelline Instant Anti-Age Eraser Eye
Everybody uses and raves about this concealer being incredible, but I hate how it looks on my skin. It brings a lot of attention to my under eye area and that's the one thing I don't want it to do. I might try this in a different shade, but I'm very hesitant and I think I'll be sticking to Rimmel's Wake Me Up concealer!

Mac Fluidline Brow Gelcreme
I think I would love this product if there were a wider choice of shades. Mac only have three on offer and Deep Dark Brunette was the one I went for. I have pretty bold brows and not much need for adding product into them, so this is going. It's a brilliant product, I just feel that I don't need something that gives such a bold finish when my brows are already quite strong! I'll be sticking the the Maybelline Brow Drama for now!

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
This is my go to powder, but I do not like the packaging. Not one single bit. My first tin of this got thrown at the back of a draw in my dressing table because the lid cracked and was deemed useless and I've been leaving this in the bottom of my handbag on work days so I can touch up my t-zone and I always find the lid apart from the rest of the product. It's really not ideal for travel and for that reason, I'll be picking up another that won't have this problem. All Rimmel need to do is change it to a screw on lid, but I doubt they will. So, this has to stay at home on the dresser.

I'm looking to sell both the Maybelline Eye Eraser (£5) and the Mac Fluidline Browgel (£10) with an additional charge for postage so if you'd like either, let me know! Also, I'd love to know if you've had different experiences with the same product.. let me know what I'm doing wrong!

  1. I also dislike the eye eraser from maybelline even though a lot of people do rave about it, it does nothing for me :(

  2. I agree with the powder, they need to secure it more!

  3. I love the Rimmel powder but the lid of my last one completely cracked as well! x

  4. I agree about Rimmel's powder, I love the product but the packaging is just awful. I do love the Maybelline foundation though, the only problem I have with it is that Ivory still isn't light enough for my skin!
