It’s not often that I come across products that I really don’t like, or think ‘I really feel like I’ve wasted my money’, but there have been a few recently so I thought I would do a little blog about them!
NYX HD Photogenique Primer and Finishing powder.
Let me start off by saying that the powder is by far the biggest waste of money EVER.
With it being for photographs specifically you would think it would be for all kinds of photography. Right? Wrong. Don’t use this product for photos you will be taking using a flash because it reflects the light, rendering the photo totally useless.
It’s also the worst finishing powder I’ve ever come across. It does absolutely nothing to your makeup. Just don’t buy it.
As for the primer, it’s sticky, smells a bit weird and I don’t like the consistency or the colour of it. It’s just not what I wanted in a primer at all. And I don’t feel like it makes my makeup go on any better than what it would without it!
Now I’m a huge lover of NYX makeup. I but their stuff all the time and have never had complaints. But my god these products are terrible.
Soap and Glory – Pillow Plump XXL
What is his supposed to do exactly? Because it certainly doesn’t plump my lips at all! No more than any other lipstick does. Because it’s a gloss it makes me hate it more. I’m not a huge fan of lip gloss to begin with, but because people always rave about this I thought I would give it a go! Doesn’t make me love soap and glory and less though. They still remain one of my favourite brands.
But this. This was a waste of time. I hated it.
Oh how excited I was when I managed to get this. It was old out everywhere at the time and my friend told me about a little salon somewhere that would post it out to me so I grabbed it while I could.
Firstly, i had no idea how to use it so I just winged it the first time and very nearly burnt my lips off! Was absolutely horrendous.
When I learnt how to use it though, although it may have slightly changed my lips when I first applied it. It didn’t hold for much longer than 5 minutes. All that stinging for having more plump lips for 5 minutes just wasn’t worth it. Not at all.
I’d rather save my money and have lip fillers (which I actually did do in the end).
So like I said, it’s really not often that I buy something I don’t like. I always read reviews or go off word of mouth. And I’m nearly always pleased. But these are some of the products that really stuck out in my mind as being terrible.
Thanks for reading! Let me know down below if you have tried any of these and what you thought of them.
