TAG: Products I regret buying
was their mechanical Technakohl Liner, specifically the one in Graphblack. YouTubers like JuicyStar07 ranted and raved about how amazing this liner was; it didn't need to be sharpened, it didn't smudge, it was super intense black. And, of course, muggins here went an bought it.
Well, what nobody deigned to mention was that, while it didn't need to be sharpened, it couldn't be sharpened and when the skinny and fragile pointed nib broke off-which it did, repeatedly, you were left with a flat-topped, sharp-edged liner that could not be used on the waterline as it tore the eyeballs off you. I probably used this product a grand total of three times and I have, oh, about 2cm of the liner left. Not impressed.
As I have mentioned many times in the course of this blog, I went on a serious Chanel nail polish binge last summer and bought every single hyped-about and coveted colour they released. I know, I know, what a sucker. While I love Paradoxal and Particuliére, I was beyond disappointed by Nouvelle Vague. The consistency is shockingly bad (It has since separated into a watery green and turquoise mess which no amount of shaking will clear) and it just does not apply evenly or without streaking. The colour is lovely for summer but, by God, it is not even worth the hassle of putting on as it chips within 24 hours and, at €21, that's just ridiculous. Reeaaally want Black Pearl though...!
I really should have known better about this one but, because Kim Kardashian endorsed it, I bought it. The Nivea Goodbye Cellulite cream does not remove, reduce or smooth your dimpled skin. I'm lucky in that I don't have that much orange peely-ness going on (lots of water and exercise is your only man-unfortunately!) but, this stuff didn't make a dent in what I do have. Thankfully it was under a tenner or I would have been mightily peed off!
What products do you regret buying?
