Makeup Products I Regret Buying

Most of the time, before I buy a makeup item, I do a lot of research. I like to read reviews on Sephora or Makeupalley before buying, so I can be sure that I am buying the right product for me. Buuuut, sometimes I don’t read the reviews and impulse buy…or the reviews lead me wrong. Anyway, here are some products that I thought I would love, that just turned out to be flops.

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette – I really don’t know what I was thinking when I bought this. I ALWAYS use shimmery eyeshadow shades, but for whatever reason, I thought this plain matte palette was something I needed. It has 6 shades, 3 of which are highlight shades. Why does a palette with only 6 shades need half of them to be highlights??? Don’t get me wrong, they are nice highlight shades, but why 3? The next two colors are just one really light brown, a medium brown. Boring. Just blah. The last shade is a matte black. Ok. I realize that this palette is supposed to be used in conjunction with another palette, but…I really don’t ever use this. I don’t know why I bought it!

NARS Larger Than Life Eye Pencil in Via Veneto – This is a black eyeliner pencil. Nothing really special about it, but everyone raves that it’s so good! I personally think that the Urban Decay 24/7 liners are better, and they’re cheaper. This NARS pencil is pretty hard and not very smudge-able. I’ll use this up, but I don’t think I’ll be purchasing it again.

MAC Lipstick in Angel – again, a product a lot of people love and rave about. This is a light pink lipstick with some shimmer that I can just not get to work on me. It’s a light pink shade, similar to MAC Creme Cup, but it just makes me look super washed out. I don’t know. I should have tried it before I bought it!

Sonia Kashuk Hidden Agenda Cream Concealer Quad – I read about this product in a magazine saying how great it was. This concealer just looks so cakey and unnatural on me! The shades are light enough, but the product just doesn’t blend into the skin at all. It just kind of sits on top and looks caked on. I can’t get this to work for me.

Revlon Photoready Concealer – this concealer is shimmery! It isn’t creamy AT ALL, and it looks cakey. No.

MAC Prep & Prime in Radiant Rose – this is not a BAD product, by any means. I just wish I hadn’t wasted my money on it. This is a highlighting concealer pen, and I had been using the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Corrector in the shade Radiant, and it is almost the exact same thing as the MAC, except I prefer the Maybelline one. The consistency of the MAC pen was runnier, and did not cover as well as the Maybelline pen. I have a full post comparing these two here.

CoverGirl Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation – this foundation looked great when I first applied it, but it oxidized so badly that within an hour my face was orange! I even tried it with a primer, and it still turned me orange. Too bad, because I really think it would be a great foundation, it was lightweight and I like the packaging. The color just wasn’t for me.

Have you ever bought anything that you later regretted?

Thanks for reading!!

  1. I really like this post. A lot of girls on YouTube don’t do these because they don’t like to so call “hate” on products. I really love your honesty,but I think you left out Mac Prep and Prime. Maybe, maybe not?

    • So sorry! Yes, I did leave that part out! I have updated the post!

  2. What didn’t you like about prep and prime? Was thinking of buying it because I thought it looked really good but I won’t if the reasons you don’t like it are things I don’t like myself! Thanks 🙂 x

  3. I kinda feel the same about the Naked Basics palette… but I’m still kinda torn.

    I really do like the Prep & Prime though! I tried that Maybelline thing you talked about on Instagram, but the weird sponge tip kinda freaks me out :/!!!
