Tuesday Top 5: Regret Purchases

In helping DoctorsMrs and others who have jumped on the No Buy for the rest of August wagon, I thought that rounding up a few regret purchases would be a good topic Smiley Happy


-Chantecaille Save the Sharks: Chantecaille makes some of the best eyeshadows and blushes, but this palette was an utter flop. The eyeshadows were extremely chalky and the blush color difficult to pick up, but the palette as a whole just clashed with my skintone.


-Sigma Paris palette: Wanting to support a couple of my favorite Youtube gurus who participated in the making of this palette, I bought this when it first came out. Let's just say Sigma should stick to brushes. The fall out is absolutely ridiculous and pigmentation is lacking!


-Buxom Pug cream shadow: This is an exact dupe of Chanel's Illusion D'ombre in Illusoire. The thing that makes it different is, well, the quality. This shadow not only popped out of the jar after just six months (and with proper storage) but has also a greasy film on top.


-NYX Butter Lip Glosses: Good grief! These were sticky, patchy, and just plain awful. On my lips, they pretty much just slip and slide. Am I the only one who finds these over-hyped??


-MAC Lady Gaga Lipglass: Having missed out on the lipstick, I thought it was a good idea to get the lip glass instead. Sticky like a Venus flytrap, MAC Lipglass has one of the worst lip gloss formulas. Not to mention, the color wasn't all that flattering.


Share away, BTers! Smiley Happy

We can all thank Kim K for the Turkish Delight hype Smiley Wink

lol exactly!!!

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Regret Purchases

1. They're Real Mascara-one of the worst mascaras I have ever used.  Gave me spidery lashes and didn't volumize at all! 


2. UD setting spray-I own the one that is supposed to keep your face matte.  I haven't noticed a difference at all and I use it often just to use it up.


3. Benefit lipgloss- Ever so sticky even though I like the color


4. YSL Rouge Volupte shine in shade 1- It just appears really streaky on my lips and not as opaque as the others I own


5. Dior show mascara- Too wet of a formula on me and not worth the price

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Regret Purchases

UD Setting Sprays do nothing for me either. I prefer setting with a light powder dusting.


Re: Tuesday Top 5: Regret Purchases

SO. MANY. EYESHADOWS. I keep trying to make up excuses as to why I need yet another neutral eye palette to add to the 12 I already own. My boyfriend just laughs. 

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Regret Purchases

You can never have enough eyeshadows, dear! Especially not neutral ones Smiley Very Happy

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Regret Purchases

I actually love the Benefit They're Real Mascara. I think that's a product you either love or you hate.

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Regret Purchases

Yeah, if the sample shows anything I personally like it. It just works for my needs and chemistry. But of course your milage may vary.

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Regret Purchases

Got more to add:


Essie Butler, Please- I've had good luck with most of my Essie polishes, but this one is horrendous. It chips, it streaks, it just makes me wish I could get it over because the color is gorgeous but no.


WnW Fergie Tonight's Gonna Be a Good Night nail polish- Like with Essie I've had good luck with most of my WnW purchases but... not with this one. I was under the impression that this was dark black with gold glitter. Instead it's a dark grey jelly with gold glitter. I didn't want to bother with black undies because, well, I wanted opaque black, so I returned it. Lesson learned: look up swatches first.


Jordana eyeliner pencil in white- total waste of a buck. It's so hard that I cannot use this on my waterline, let alone anywhere else on my face. At least, not unless I want to feel pain. Now that I have nude eyeliner and NYX milk I'm trashing this.


MAC Quite Cute lipstick- I actually love MAC lipstick (it's so comfortable to me) and while I like this I don't wear it enough to justify its purchase.


WnW Think Pink lipstick- I like the actual product (I have a few more from the line because of this); I just think this shade is too warm on me so it looks weird when I paint my lips.


Pretty much all of my foundations ever- I cannot find a good foundation for me. They are often too dark, or cause cystic acne (and I'm already very acne prone), or don't last too long, or cause my oily face to practically drip crap from my pores... I want to try a powder one now.


Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Stain in Darling- doesn't really show on my lips Smiley Sad

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Regret Purchases

I really want Essie polishes to work for me, but every single one I've tried chips within a day on me :\. It's too bad since Essie has a wide color range!
