Hello my lovelies! I’m sorry I haven’t been posting as much, I just haven’t been feeling very well. But today I just wanted to talk about some makeup that just didn’t work out for me. That being said, I still love all of these brands and I’m not trying to trash them in any way. Only these specific products were a major fail in my book!
Hard Candy Color Correcting Primer
I seriously wanted this to work sooooo badly, but it was just terrible. I don’t even know how to explain it. But this primer kind of balls up when I rub it into my skin, almost like it’s just rubbing off. I don’t know what’s up with that. It also did nothing to mute any of my redness. Really disappointing.
Hard Candy Naturally Gorgeous Eyeshadow Palette
I didn’t know if I should include this or not because it’s not the actual product that’s bad. The eyeshadows are actually really good and super pigmented. The only thing that just bugged me was that I don’t think there is a good variety of colors. A lot of the shades are similar and there’re all extremely sparkly. I’m not the type of person to only use shimmer shadows, I need some good mattes to make everything come together. And the purpose of a palette is to have everything you need right in one product, so I don’t like having to grab for other products when I want to use this.
Crown Brush Duofibre Brush
This honestly is the worst. The bristles are so rough it honestly hurts my face when I use it. They are not soft, it makes everything look patchy, and doesn’t pick up enough product. Definitely would not recommend.
ELF 3 in 1 Mascara
I bought this because I thought the brush looked similar to the They’re Real one, and it does, but the product is nothing like it. It kind of just doesn’t dry. Like I’ll apply this and then 10 minutes later my lashes will be all stuck together. It’s just too wet of a formula for me.
treStique Matte Lip Crayon in Nantucket Nude
I’m sad about this because the color is really pretty. But the formula of this is just so dry that it’s hard to apply. I can deal with dryness in like a liquid lipstick, but not this. It kind of feels like rubbing an actual crayon on your lips.
Jordan Cat Eyes Liquid Liner in Brown
Love Jordana, love their eyeliners. This product is super nicely pigmented and applies amazingly, but doesn’t last. It will go a bit cracky on my lash line and the wing will flake off. Maybe I just got a dud, but still.
That’s it for today! I hope you enjoyed and don’t forget to follow for new posts and info on my upcoming giveaway! I will be announcing it soon!
