A Series of Disappointing Products

Hello again! Another Monday, another post. This time, I will be listing some disappointing products that I’ve tried recently and some all-time disappointments that keep making their way into my makeup collection.

I will start this post with Benefit Cosmetics’ POREfessional Face Primer. I really don’t understand why I keep getting samples of this from every subscription service. I know it has been considered a “holy grail” by many, but I hate the texture of it, whenever I apply it my skin feels kinda dirty and I actually think it can a bit oily at times. The product description on the Sephora website claims it “so translucent, no one will know you’re wearing anything,” I don’t think this to be the case, as the primer definitely has a nude tint to it and I am sure in darker skin tones it wouldn’t be considered translucent.


Next on the list, is another primer that I think gets pushed down everyone’s throats, and it is the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer. The texture of this primer is very similar to the POREfessional one, and I think that silicone feeling is what puts me off both of these primers. I am more of a moisturizer type of person.  I do have dry skin and these primers I think intensify that feeling of dryness while also making my skin look oily…. I know, very confusing.

The third product is the Rahua Omega 9 Hair Mask that I received in a Sephora Play! Box a while back. I read reviews on the Sephora website before trying it out, mainly because I wanted to make sure it was safe to apply to dyed hair. This product has a lot of shitty reviews. A lot. And I definitely agree with most of them. I decided to not apply too much product on my hair and also didn’t leave it as much time as it said since a lot of people claimed it dried out their hair even more, and I was not interested in this happening to me. When I’ve tried other conditioners or hair masks, I immediately feel my hair a lot smoother, and just an instant change that remains even after I wash it out. In this case, the reviews on the Sephora website were right. It did not feel nice at all. It made my hair even more tangled and I wasn’t feeling it at all.

MILK MAKEUP Blur Stick is another product I received in my Sephora Play! Box, and I honestly don’t understand what this is supposed to do. I tried applying it in multiple ways, pressing it, sliding it, etc., and it didn’t do anything. I never felt like there was any product on my skin. Has anyone tried this before and liked it? I am very curious to know.

Last on this list, and a product I was really excited about, is the NYX Tres Jolie Pencil Liner. Kathleen Lights RAVES about this product, she’s obsessed with it, and she says it’s a great eyeliner for the waterline because it glides on so smoothly. I don’t know if I got a defective one, but this eyeliner is so dry it hurts trying to apply it on my waterline. The last time I decided to give this a go, it hurt so bad and didn’t even try it that much. It dragged on my skin and it was horrible. I hate it. I love Kathleen Lights and I think her reviews are pretty honest, so I was so disappointed when this didn’t work on me.

That’s it for this installment of A Series of Disappointing Beauty Products, I will continue to do these as I encounter products I really don’t enjoy. Honestly, I am not a very picky person when it comes to makeup so these posts might not happen too frequently.

What have been some disappointing products you’ve tried recently?

  • My preferred lip for the #summer☀️ is @colourpopcosmetics lippie stix in Poppin’. If you haven’t tried their lipsticks, make sure you do! It is such a great, affordable brand with great quality. What’s your favorite @colourpopcosmetics product?

  • Are you ready for summer? Showing you a fun, poppin’ summer look! On this first part I used the Just Peachy Mattes from @toofaced, and then I show you how I fix a little mascara mishap with a @realtechniques tool. How do you make sure your mascara is looking good?

  • Ending the day with a little #selfcaresunday! #firstaidbeautygiftedme the Ginger and Turmeric Vitamin C Jelly Mask. This mask is supposed to brighten and soothe stressed out skin. At the moment, I’m not necessarily stressed BUT we can all do with a soothing mask on a Sunday night. I love how refreshing this mask feels on the skin. The jelly consistency is great, and I almost want to put it in the fridge... Can you do that? @firstaidbeauty #firstaidbeauty #helloFAB #OctolyFamily

  • #EsteeLaudergiftedme My current night-time skincare routine🌘 I alternate between the @esteelauder Advanced Night Repair Serum and the @pixibeauty Jasmine Blend oil (not pictured). I love the @katesomervilleskincare Cold Cream to remove my makeup, and then I go in with my @freshbeauty Soy Cleanser and the @clarisonic. What does your night routine look like?
