    Makeup Products I Regret Buying

    I’ve been sitting with this post idea for some time and decided today is the day to just do it. My list of products I regret buying isn’t that long as I tend to buy with extreme caution and I do my re-search so it’s no surprise that these purchases where all made in a whim. Makeup Products I Regret Buying.

    I Regret Buying the Swiitch #Taupenotch Eyeshadow Palette

    I don’t disagree that the shades are all gorgeous, but I felt that there are just too many shades that are very similar. Also the palette smelled like chemicals. A friend of mine’s palette smelt so bad that it wasn’t usable and had to be thrown out. R300 down the drain. Just a side note, we contacted them and was promised a replacement that never came. Doubt I would be supporting them again in the future.

    Physicians Formula Nude Eyeshadow Palette

    The eyeshadows where not very pigmented and I struggled to blend it. They are also extremely narrow in the palette and they aren’t being separated by pans so when you use it the colours smush together.  When I initially reviewed this palette I don’t think I used it enough. I ended up giving it away.

    The Balm Time Balm Foundation

    I’m already not a very big foundation fan because most of them feels heavy on my face. This one was a disaster. Even with a primer it sits in each and every crater and line on your face. If that’s not bad enough it slips and slides like someone stepping on a soap in the shower not even an hour after application. Luckily this was purchased at the Stuttafords shut down sale and not a lot was spent on it. Just shocked that such a bad foundation could be priced so high. Myself and both my girl friends had a problem with this one.

    The Balm Tall Dark Handsome Mascara

    I love myself some mascara and this was another purchase from the Stuttafords sale. I didn’t open it immediately as I had a bunch of other mascaras open. When I finally wanted to use it and pulled the wand out it came out without a head. What a waste! I will see which one of my mascara wands will fit in there and be able to screw on so it’s not a total bust.

    Have you tried any of the above products or had a bad experience with any other?

      Oh no, I can’t believe you had that experience with the swiitch beauty palette – so not cool. I have the slays for days palette and didn’t have any issues with it.

      I haven’t tried any of these, but I do have the Balm foundation, but haven’t tried it yet. Sounds like it is a miss. Its terrible about the Swiitch palette!

        Just spoke to another friend about the balm foundation and it was a miss from her as well. So that makes four. If you do end up trying it let me know what you think!

        Which palette aren’t you using? Would love to know!

      Don’t own any of these, but I do have the Swiitch Slays For Days palette and I like it! I didn’t go for the Taupe Notch because so many shades looked similar and I’d rather invest that money in another neutral palette. Or a Morphe palette!
      I regret buying the Urban Decay All Nighter foundation – so many of their products are incredible, but that one is very much love/hate and I can’t stand it. I gave it away! Did absolutely nothing for me and was a lot of work to blend out.

        I think the all nighter foudation has a very dry formula so I think I’d probably also not like it. I want to try their BB cream tho!
