Today i wanted to share a few products that unfortunately did not work for me. I always get so bummed when a product doesn’t work out, but it’s bound to happen from time to time.
The first product is the Flower about face foundation with primer. I should’ve known when I first tested this at the store to not buy this. I always test foundation on the back of my hand to make sure it matches. When i tried this one the oil started sliding down my wrist. I didn’t shake it up that well before doing that, so I gave it a good shake and once again the oil and foundation separated when I pumped it out on my wrist. I grabbed a new bottle (I didn’t test it) thankfully the foundation wasn’t super oily when I pumped it on my wrist at home, but now it was the application I wasn’t happy with. This product just didn’t apply well to my skin. It pretty much absorbed right into my skin and it looked as though I had no foundation on. I really wanted to like this product cause it seems like a great line (I have a mascara and primer I like) but this just didn’t work for me.
The next product is the nourishing mascara from Burt’s Bees. I bought this because i have been wanting to add more natural brand products into my makeup routine. I really like the foundation from BB’s but this mascara is a big no from me. The first time I applied this mascara my eyes immediately started burning to the point it hurt to open my eyes and I cried all my eye makeup off. I annoyingly ended up redoing my entire makeup (always a pain when you have to do that). I decided to try it one more time why? I don’t know and yet again after I applied it my eyes started watering and burning. I however refused to redo my makeup that day so i placed Kleenex’s under my eyes and i only had to touch my eye makeup and under eyes. After two times of a product causing me pain I wouldn’t repurchase it or use it again.
The last product is the Maybelline Master Fixer makeup remover pen. This is a product that was made for me. I put this product in my cart the moment I saw it because I’m always smudging and messing up my eye makeup, so this would be perfect for me. Sadly it was not perfect for me. Instead of fixing smudges or excess mess, this just smudged my makeup even more. Kind of a bummer when a product that is supposed to erase smudges just smudges it more.
Maybe one day I will try the foundation again as it be the only thing I’d be curious to try again, but the mascara will continue to be a big no and although the eraser pen would be a handy product if it worked, it’s not something I really need. Have you tried any of these products? If you did I hope they worked out better for you then they did for me. If you haven’t tried these yet, I don’t want my negative experiences to steer you away from the products because although something doesn’t work for someone doesn’t mean it won’t work for you. If you do try these products let me know how you found them.
Thanks for reading!
