Disappointing Products

by - 10:47:00

I've taken a while to do this as I wanted to truly make sure that these products really aren't as good as I thought they would be.... Alas they are terrible so lets begin...

1. Eysilix by Indeed Labs £24.99 - This is the main reason this post came about as an idea. It promised so much but is just actually dreadful. The only 10 peptide cream on the market they say; shame it makes no difference and cannot be used under concealer.... This cream rolls right off your skin. You could leave it for hours and it'd still peel off. Dreadful. If you're still curious I would approach with caution. I e-mailed Indeed Labs about the problem and they said that I should perhaps use another eye cream underneath because my under eyes were probably dry... They absolutely are not and the peeling is 100% a result of their product. 

2. Simple Kind to Eyes Eye Make-up Remover - This is something I remembered being quite good so I recently repurchased it... I'm not sure whether its formula has changed but it doesn't remove make-up well at all.. Even when I use non-waterproof I still wake up with Panda eyes so it's definitely disappointing. Also you have to use quite a lot of product in the first place to get rid of what it does so it's not the most economical product either.

3. Bourjois Little Round Pot Blushes  £7.99 - I recently purchased a number of these and I have to say they're not great. I'd heard so many good things about them so I really wanted to like them, but the colour pay off just really isn't there. I could be really heavy handed and you would still barely notice it. So for the price I would recommend getting Sleek blushes instead. 

4. Revlon Colorstay foundation and concealer - I hauled these quite a while ago and was thrilled to find a dupe for my much loved Double Wear. However, the coverage isn't great at all (light/ medium at best) and it doesn't stay well at all even when used in conjunction with the primer from the range. While it is a nice foundation, it doesn't work for the purposes I bought it or for what Revlon say it will do so I'm definitely disappointed. Also the lack of pump is annoying too. As for the concealer, it too doesn't offer good coverage nor does it stay for long either. It's nice and natural but it doesn't conceal an awful lot which is a shame. 

5. Maybelline Baby Lips £2.99 - I'll be the first to admit that I bought every colour as soon as they landed on boots.com. I was so excited that I could buy them at the time that I couldn't help myself. Now I'm at the very end of one I feel I can now say I am officially disappointed. The balm coats the lips nicely and looks glossy but in terms of functionality I don't have baby soft lips at all, if anything they're drier. The truth is there are much better lip balms out there; so while they're cute and novel, they aren't functional. 

So those are mine, what are yours?
