So, as a spin off to the “best” beauty products you’re using right now & the Rimmel products suck post…what are some beauty products you’ve tried lately that just didn’t work for you? I’m always trying new things, so it’s nice to hear the things that didn’t work so I can steer clear 🙂
The ELF $1 face brushes. The eye brushes are fine, and the studio line are surprizingly good for the price, but the $1 face brushes are really rough, shed all over, and don’t apply colors evenly. Just did not work for me.
Ulta brand eyeshadows & nail polish. Neither had pigment, and the eyeshadows were chalky.
Finally, the Banana Boat Summer of Color Sunless Tanner in Light/Medium. I was really bummed, because I’d heard great things about the “dark” one, but they were sold out at my local Walmart, so I got light/medium. My skin is naturally really fair, so I figured this would work great. It barely showed up at all, and, when it faded, it was the patchiest fading I’ve ever had for a sunless tanner (and, yes, I do exfoliate before & moisturize after). Major bummer.
What about everyone else?

some covergirl eyeliner. it came in a 2 pack. i bought it because it was cheap and it sucks. i practically have to poke my eye out to apply it. i hate to waste product tho, so i just use it for days when i don’t care if my makeup is perfect or not.

I bought the Falsies mascara recently, and hate it. I had heard so many positive comments, but it was clumpy and flaked everywhere! Its possible I got a bad one but I would never recommend it.

@lilchicana: If you hold the tip over a lighter for a few seconds, just enough to warm the wax, it will be much easier to apply 🙂 that’s what I do for my crappy eyeliners, because I hate to waste, too!
@s.renea9: This one?

@les105: Yes, this works wonders with pencil liners! Makes them look like liquid liner 🙂
Worst: Noxzema. The face wash stuff and the cleansing pads.
I had a breakout about a month ago, I neverrr break out so I didn’t know what to treat it with. Enter flashback from grade 7: Noxzema smell. 12 year old me tells current me, this works, go buy it!!
The day after using it once I woke up with the most horrendous looking skin I have ever seen, it literally looked like I had a chemical peel. It was red, ruddy, uneven and dull and horrid. I slammed those suckers in the trash and will never look back.

My worst is Proactiv. I had a huge allergic reaction to it and got a horribly itchy rash all over my face and down my neck and upper chest that lasted for weeks. I looked like a leper with fleas.

@thepainter: I bought this a few months back and actually hated it as well. It didn’t seem to do ANYTHING for me at all.

I bought the Ulta version of Loreal Sublime Bronze.
And it did nothing. at all. All my bridesmaids used it the night before the wedding and nobody saw and difference.

I love both the Falsies Mascara and the Dream Foam foundation (although this isn’t the foundation I will be using for the wedding day)
Haven’t tried any new makeup that I dislike
