Products I Regret Buying (Part 1!)

Hi Ladies!

So as I have started project 10 pan and am trying not to spend too much at the moment, I have started revisiting quite a few of my older products which need using up! Whist I have uncovered a few golden oldies I have also come across quite a few products which are collecting dust at the back of my drawer for a reason - Cue my products I regret buying post! These are just things which didn't work for me, and for some people will probably work really well (there are loads of things that I love and my friends don't and vice versa!)

So sadly the first product which I don't really love that much at all is a MAC product. The strobe kiss tinted lip conditioner stick.

I bought this when I first started experimenting with lipstick, I thought it would be the perfect transition between a gloss and a lipstick (how friendly does the name tinted lip conditioner sound!?) When I swatched it on my hand it seemed like a lovely subtle coral colour, however once I put it on my lips at home it was extremely sheer with next to no colour and felt very waxy. The most off putting thing about this product for me though was the taste! - yuck! its sort of a mix between a very sickly marshmallow and suncream - bad times.

Next up is a more recent purchase. The elf corrective concealer palette.

I was really excited when elf added some more studio products to their line not so long ago (I am a huge elf fan I cannot get over the amazing prices!) I was especially excited by this as I have alway been intruigued by the colour theory with concealer. On first impressions I really liked this palette the concealers felt creamy and the little brush in the palette is really cute! However when I actually applied them the colour pay off was really disappointing and sort of left my skin looking shiney :-( I use these concealers very occasionaly as an eye base which they are actually quite effective as - so all is not lost!

and finally boots essentials styling mousse.

Hair mousse makes up part of my everyday hair routine when I straighten my hair. I always use a small amount to add some extra lift to my hair at the root to stop it from looking too flat and to add a little va va voom! Its a product which I've never felt the need to part with that many pennies over as I have found most cheaper hair mousses (around £1.00) are perfectly capable of doing the job! However for me, this wasn't the case with the boots essentials hair mousse. It left my hair feeling sticky, clumped together and worst of all - flat! definately not the desired look. thumbs down boots!

So thats all for now, I actually really enjoyed doing this post! Let me know about any products you have regretted buying recently or if you can think of any ways I could try and make these three work for me!

Speak Soon!
