I love focusing my energy on the greats and the positives, but sometimes, you just have to admit “wow this was a total fail!”

Ideally, we would love all of our products (all of the time). However, it doesn’t work out like that. So here are a few disappointing products that I’ve recently purchased.

  • Tarte Parkave Princess Contour Kit: honestly, I’m not even sure why I bought this. For starters, the bronzer is much too warm to be a contour. Luckily, with a light hand, I can make it work without looking orange. However, the highlighter doesn’t show up on my skin and the blush isn’t my ideal shade. Tarte came out with a Parkave Princess 2 and it looks much more fitting.
  • L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte: Okay, so I know a few of you will be like “how didn’t she like this?!” I know it’s a lot of people’s holy grail foundations – but it transfers SO MUCH on me. Even when set with a powder, it’ll transfer all day, on everything.


  • Maybelline Lash Sensational Full Fan Effect: this also transfers a lot on me! The first edition (in the pink bottle) was perfect! I love the formula on that one. However, this addition just didn’t do it for me. I have raccoon eyes within an hour. It’s unfortunate, because I love the brush and the way it makes my lashes look.


  • NYX HD Concealer: this product is bizarre for me! It leaves me looking dry and cakey and immediately settles into fine lines, and just gets worse throughout the day.


  • Sephora Cream Lip Stain (10): This colour is gorgeous and I anticipated it’s arrival in the mail. A lot of beauty bloggers loved this product so I thought it would be a hit. However, it bunches up on me and smears onto my teeth.


  • Pixi Petra Bronzer (summertime): I thought this wasn’t bad for a little fake-summertime glow, however, everytime I wear it, my boyfriend points out that it looks cakey and grabby and uneven. A little reminder to not always let the mirror fool you.


What are some of your beauty fails – or favourites?!

  1. I use the L’oreal Infallible Foundation and Pixi Bronzer and they’re actually included on my must haves. Hmm, it must have been so disappointing when you learned that it’s not working for you 😦 but great post! Only proves that it doesn’t always work to everyone. You should try Maybelline Poreless Matte Foundation.

    • I am a huge fan of the Maybelline foundation! It’s one of my favourites from the drugstore. I notice a little transferring with that as well! I seem to be one of the few that couldn’t make the L’Oreal foundation work!

    C!! I’m so sorry I haven’t gotten to your post sooner! I agree on disappointing products! Almost most of the time … story of my life!

    This was such a cute post. as far as my disappoining products for me, are moistures that make my face peal after applying my make up. 😆

    I also wasn’t a fan of the new Clinique beyond prefect foundation.

    The foundation didn’t work for me, either. It is strange how it does for some but not everyone. Can I ask where I can find NYX products? I am on a hunt for one of their matte lipsticks.

    I totally agree with the Infallible matte foundation, it just didn’t cut it for me. But I absolutely adore the park avenue princess palette! It’s an all time fave. Funny how different it can be for different people 🙂 x
