Products I Regret Buying #2

Ahhh, yes it's time to do another one of these posts....

When doing these posts, I carefully consider products that I have tried and tried but still - hate! 

Maybeline "Big Eyes" Mascara : I did a review back in February Click Here For Review . I said in the review that it is just like any other mascara, that is true! I bought it because of the hype of having a bottom lash mascara, but personally I find the actual mascara pretty RUBBISH! 

Lloreal Super Felt Tip Liner: I have illustrated with the photo below that this eyeliner is weak. If I buy a black eyeliner, I expect it to give me a black line on my eyes, not faded grey. I know you may think that I have a dud and that the other one might be ok, but I've tried another one of these and go the same result. 

Tea Tree Moisturizer:  When you think of a moisturizer, you think of moisturizing right? Well I find this doesn't touch my dry skin, but as it's tea tree I thought it would be good. I was wrong. 

No7 Intelligent Colour Foundation: I did buy this a few years ago, so there might be a better version of it, but what a weird foundation?! The concept is great, the fact that it will blend into your skin tone.. but I personally find this foundation patchy and drying. I added this product within my last "products I regret buying" post and forgot. #forgetfullaura

Maxfactor Lasting Performance Foundation: By the name you'd expect this foundation to be long lasting? I just found it does what the previous foundation does, it goes really patchy. I tried it in a pale enough shade, but find I get random orange bits on my skin after wearing a few hours? 

W7 Concealer Palette: I bought this off Amazon, hoping for some great things after great reviews. I personally think the product isn't pigmented enough and blends horribly. The palette looks professional enough, but I still regret buying it :( 

Hope you enjoyed reading me moan about things I don't like ;)

  1. Such a shame, I am always unsure about No7 products.. No idea why!

  2. I love posts like this, it's always nice to read someone's honest opinion of products, sometimes I find it much more useful to find what products people don't like, rather than ones they are impressed with.

    Admittedly I just don't get the hype around Maybelline mascaras, they always seem to sound promising only to end up clumpy and thick! I do like some of the No7 products, but I definitely think they are waay overpriced for the quality. Thanks for sharing! <3

  4. I'm glad I've found another blogger who didn't like Big Eyes. I like the brush for the lower lashes but overall it's pretty rubbish x

  5. So annoying these type of products. You pay big money and it just isn't good quality. I love how honest you write :)

  6. I hear mixed reviews with No.7 ! I purchased a foundation and it was so patchy and dry :S And I thought the Loreal Liner was really good according to other people but, such a shame you didn't get along with it xo

  7. eeeek... thanks for the heads up on these products lady love! xx

  8. I love the Maybelline Big Eyes Mascara, it works wonders on my lashes! But I do agree on the MaxFactor foundation, I had the same problems with it when I bought it a while back.


  9. So disappointed in the Tea Tree moisturizer! The name sounds like it should be amazing. Lovely post!

  12. I'm shocked about the eye-liner it looked like a great product as well

  13. I almost bought the No7 foundation a few months back - glad I didn't!

    Have you tried the Collection Extreme Felt Tip Liner? It's brilliant and so much cheaper! (£2.99)
