So this post is about a few things which I bought (and one free from a magazine) which I really don't get along with. Some are worse than others. I only have 6 products to show you guys, I don't have more because I normally like to research beauty and make up items before I buy them, these were all (bar one) impulse buys. Not to say I haven't discovered great products whilst impulse buying, but that's for another time :P
I'll start with the least disappointing/unliked products:
Rimmel London Colour Rush Trio Eyeshadows (698 Modern Blues and 750 Tempting)
These weren't a terrible buy because I got them both for £1, but I was slightly disappointed in them. Despite being called 'Colour Rush' the colour payoff isn't good at all, I've only used them once each (with Modern Blues I just took it off straight away :P) and soooo much has to be packed onto my lids for noticeable colour. Also the fall out is huge, dusty eyeshadow cheeks is not really my kind of look... But not really too awful, I wore the Tempting colours (I don't really like these colours btw :P) on an army themed night and in every single photo you can barely tell there's anything on my lids > . <
E.L.F Eyeshadow Duo
Again this wasn't too disappointing because like all e.l.f products it was dirt cheap (I forget how much exactly). The colour payoff is better than the Rimmel eyeshadows, but the fallout is a bit worse. The reason why I was more disappointed with this product is because of the colour, on the website the swatches looked a bluey purple colour, and looked a bit warmer. These colours aren't bad, but they just weren't what I wanted.
Neal's Yard Remedies Eyeliner
Ages ago I did an eyeliner collection post, and this was in it as my least favourite eyeliner, so no surprise it's ended up here. Technically this was free in a magazine, so doesn't quite count, but I did buy the magazine because this eyeliner looked good. And it does, it looks gorgeous, I love the packaging, and I love the fact that it's organic. What I don't love is how faint the line is, how unclear and how hard you have to press to get any colour at all. It was fine on my hand, but my eyes are a lot more delicate. I was disappointed because it looks so good! (I still like keeping it in my collection for the prettyness though :P)
Avon Clear Skin Pore Penetrating Clay Mask
Awful, awful, awful, ickety ickety ick ick. Yeahhhhh I don't like this one. I bought it because it was only just over £3 and I wanted a clay mask. I used it once and will NEVER use it again. In my Glamour samples post I mentioned that the mystery face wash/mask was similar to this. They're both a horrible mint green colour and both have a worrying synthetic chemically smell. This mask says to put it on for 5 minutes, but I had to take it off after 2, it STINGS! I prefer natural based gentle products and I really have no idea why I bought this, it was such a daft purchase > . <.
John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Shampoo and Conditioner
(I already threw away the conditioner, but still have the empty shampoo for photos :P). I wanted this for ages before I bought it. I love John Frieda, the Frizz Ease Curl Reviver Mousse may be one of my favourite hair care products of all time, so when this started being advertised I had to have it. It's pricey, about £5 per bottle (and they're only 250ml), so I thought it would be an investment. In the summer my hair goes naturally lighter, and I wanted this effect in winter too. It does appear to lighten my hair, slightly and naturally looking. However this winter I have had the driest hair of my life. So I started using night treatments and hair masks more rigorously. But the problem was only half fixed, I looked online about the Go Blonder products and I found LOADS of people saying it had dried out their hair. So I stopped using it and am now on Herbal Essences. I still need to get around to booking a hair cut for the most epic case of dry split ends I have ever experienced, but my hairs condition has improved dramatically since switching > . < Also this stuff stains pillows :S I normally let my hair dry naturally, and if I go to bed, or lie down on my pillow whilst my hairs still a bit wet an icky yellowish stain appears on it :S Icky.
I've stopped the grump now :D Back to happy times :) Even though nothing particularly exciting happened today (well excluding my mini epiphany when I realised I sort of kind of almost understand SPSS) I've just been in such a cheerful mood :P I hope you're all having a brilliant day too :)
(Also I've been re-watching Secret Diary Of A Call Girl all week, I LOVE Billie Piper, it's suchhhhh a great series. I watched some with my boyfriend yesterday, he didn't like it at all unsurprisingly :P).
