Products Not Worth It


 I’ve done one of these in the past I have to say it’s refreshing to vent. It sucks when you spend money on a product only to find out it completely just doesn’t work.
So I have four products to share with you today that didn’t work out for me.
Glam Glo
There is so much hype surrounding this supposed miracle mud. I have to be honest at first I really liked it but after a while I just found it drying and way too tingly. Tingly is actually me being a polite Canadian what I really mean is this fucken hurts. There are a ton of options that work bring the glow into my skin like the Philosophy Peel Pads, which are quick, non-messy and don’t hurt at all. I have dry sensitive skin so this might work for other types of skin but just beware of that tingle.           
Bobbi Brown Natural Brow Shaper
Which is actually fact might be a great product but I got this in the complete wrong color. For some reason I thought Auburn sounded like my medium brown hair well surprise surprise it doesn’t match. Unless I plan on dying my hair red in the future this is a complete pointless purchase.
NARS Lip Gloss
I want to love NARS lip-gloss because they are non-sticky, last long and they have an incredible color range. Albatross is a great sparkly gold flattering to wear alone but even better worn over a red lipstick. The reason why I don’t reach for this is judged on the scent and taste. While this has not been as bad as others I’ve tried it’s just not great. For a high –end lip-gloss I feel it should be the full package.

YSL Shocking Mascara
Mascara is such a personal thing, so I don’t mean to offend any of you. For me the Shocking made my lashes sticky and applied rather clumpy. Overall I did not like this not one bit.

  1. I agree, when I buy a high end product, I expect it to be flawless from the packaging to the formula haha! It always sucks when you spend an arm and a leg for a piece of makeup that doesn't work!!

  3. Helpful post! I always enjoy hearing about products that flopped, as well as the good ones! I had the same experience with Glam Glow- definitely underwhelming. Have a great weekend! xo

  5. I find posts like this so helpful, it's good to be a negative nelly every once in awhile, I think when you spend a lot of money on a product it makes it even more disappointing.. x
