Products That Weren't That Great

Monday, 27 April 2015


I love having positive things to say on the blog but at the same time, when I read other blogs I like to read an honest opinion. Some of the products I write about are not the best and I want our readers to know that we are always honest in our posts.

Let me start with the Makeup Revolution EYES LIKE ANGELS Palette. The price was amazing £8 for 32 shades, packaging was the standard black plastic of Makeup Revolution products and the matt shades are as good as all of their other products. However when I went to use a few of the metallics I found the pay off to be quite terrible when using a brush. I resorted to using my finger in the end, which worked relatively well but obviously wasn't the greatest. I would't say don't buy this palette because it is a great budget buy, but that is exactly what it is, budget. I love Makeup Revolution and am always buying new bits and bobs, but this one was a little bit of a let down for me.

On to E.L.F. both the brush and the powder were from here. The brush was part of the more expensive brush range and was terrible quality. I bought another brush from the budget range at the same time and it was fab, I am still using it now but after the first use the of this one it all started to moult and all the bristles were falling out left tight and centre. The powder I think is more of a personal preference kind of deal. I didn't really try it in the shop before I bought it and when I finally got around to trying it, it made my skin quite patchy and clumped in certain areas. I think this was probably down to my skin however as I have very dry areas and very oily areas so finding something that works with both is quite difficult. 

Have you had any products that you just couldn't get on with recently?

  1. Thats a shame about the Elf Powder, even though elf uk has closed down i have ordered some products from a US website where postage is cheap. I love the Elf cheaper brushes and find them good quality compared to the others like you said x

    1. Yes I think I will stick to the cheaper brushes in the future, so disappointed that the UK stores have closed but at least we can still order from the US
