Four Products I Regret Buying

I admit, I don’t feel that bad sharing makeup products I’m not happy with. So here’s some of the most recent buys I wish I could take back!

#1 Revlon ColorStay 16 Hour Eyeshadow Palette in Decadent

I’m really sad I didn’t like these, because the colors are totally gorgeous in the palette. It reminds me of a sweet dessert, or a romantic, elegant atmosphere full of candles, roses, and soft, passionate kisses. It came with a light pink shade, a medium, yellow-brown shade, a pinky champagne shade, and a plummy shade, tucked into a sleek little case with a sponge applicator. The sad thing IS, these colors were gritty, dusty, and generally washed-out! NO WAY did they last 16 hours, let alone five, without creasing. It was really disappointing, especially because I had such high hopes!

#2 Pixi Succulent Lip Twin in Coral Camellia

2048699-p-MULTIVIEW

This was a bad product for me.

I love the idea of two products in one, but the color looked really tacky on my complexion and it felt really sticky on my skin and lips. The rounded part, as well, was a tricky sitch. The cap almost ALWAYS took chunks of product out of that little round doodad, which made me sort of P.Oed, because that was the part of the product I actually sort of LIKED. The gloss part, however, is a different story. It’s sticky, loud, and smells and tastes horrible, so overall it’s not my  favorite lip product.

#3: Revlon Fabulash Mascara

I seriously want this mascara to go and die in a hole. It smells like a bunch of people all umm…well..peed in a bottle, added black pigments, shook it up, and sold it by the tube.

For starters, the brush doesn’t coat your lashes evenly and you end up having thick, lumpy, lashes that smell sour and musty. Plus, it dries all crackly-crispy, and flakes down your face all day long!! AND, when you first apply it, it’s all gooey, gloppy and clumpy, like bubblegum, and makes your lashes look totally funky!

I just want to throw this mascara off a cliff. It’s terrible.

#4 Avon Lip Slicks in Glossy Opal and Glossy Rose

img-thing - CopyHmm. “Slick Tint.” The name just sounds sort of gross to me.

Truthfully, I purchased these when I was a great deal younger and had almost no knowledge of cosmetics. The pretty-colored Slick-Tints caught my eye, and I bought two with no second thoughts.

It smells like cheap, super-fruity lipstick, and burns my lips when I put it on. Glossy Rose is a hot pink shade that looks like cake-frosting, and Glossy Opal is a slightly-sheer, yellow color that looks nearly white. On me, they both make me look like a little girl that’s been playing with mama’s makeup, which I’m not too crazy about.

Anywayyy I’m sorry if this is too negative! If you have tried any of the products above, let me know how they worked out!

I love hearing from you guys.

  1. Thank you for this review. I am going to make it a point to stay away from these products without having to learn it the hard way. Revlon and Avon have some really amazing products though. But nothing is ever perfect. xx!
