Products I Regret Buying!

I am sure every one has these products that they loved when they first bought them, then later they said "what was I thinking?!!!" I got bunch of those. Most of them I trashed though, but I still keep some that I think could be "useful" later. So far I haven't touched them!!  =/ So, here are those items:



1) MAC Tilt.
hmmmm I love blue in general but this blue hue does not work for my skin tone. Or maybe it does, but I am just not into this color!

2) MAC Plum Dressing.
This color is gorgeous but..... I don't know why I don't like it that much. I used it once and I liked it then. Maybe i'll try again soon and see how I feel. 

3) AVON Glazewear Intense Plum.
I bought it because it looks prettttyyy on the catalog! LOL. Wore few times to work. It made me look older than my age =/.

4) Sephora Lip Attitude Star S06.
This one is somewhat "plummish" and "pinkish" in color and sparkly! And wow, I just realized I bought a lot of "plums" LOL.

5) Femme Couture Cake Eyeliner.
It's way too drying and cakey. Does not go on the skin smoothly.

6) Revlon Colorstay. 
It caused terrible breakout - under the skin kinda zits. Ouch! BUT, i don't mind wearing it once in a blue moon for clubbing. It stays on for hours!

7) Black Radiance Creme Foundation.
I wanted the 'on the go' kinda foundation, but this one is bad. It's drying and cakey. Does not blend well. But now I use it to conceal blemishes!

8) Jesse Girl Loose Eye shadow.
My friend gave me this, and she said it could be a substitute for a MAC Pigment...hmmm??? Nahhhh. She was wrong, but I really don't mind the eye shadow. The color is pretty! 

9) Mineral Veil in Tinted Feather Light.
I'll stick to a regular mineral veil. This one is way too shimmery and the bronze color all over the face? No, thank you. I use this to highlight my cheekbones and collar bones. :)

10) Physician Formula Cover in Green.
Isn't this to cover redness on your face? I know it says "Powder Finish Concealer" , but it is way too powdery. Unless I need to cover some red zits, this will be kept in my drawer till then.

11) Victoria's Secret Lipsgloss in Wet. ;)
Catchy name, uh? LOL. This color is exactly like my lip color, so there's no point of me wearing one! I don't know why I bought this. =/

So, I am done with my list. What's yours?? :) Please share!

MissA* said...

I've plenty of stuffs I bought and didn't use them... my sister is the lucky one, she gets to take all those I don't like!

Rakhshanda said...

Oh that's terrible. Shame they didn't work for you! I hate it when something like this happens.

Courtney Erin said...

I just cleaned out my makeup box and got rid of some stuff that I have never used, despite being really excited when I got it. For some reason I had three different shades of dark-bright red lipstick but no matter how much of a trend it becomes I just never feel right with a red lip so I totally don't know why I keep buying red shades.

its a pity that they dont work for you =(

but i dont like Physician Formula Cover too. it just turns to chalky power on face. sucks!

Rinz said...

MissA* - little sister?? he he little sisters like to experiment with stuff! Wait till she grows up ha ha ha

Cortney Erin - I am in the process of "liking" red lips since it's fall season and red is in. We'll see how it goes since i never liked a red lipstick on me before.

Pixie D - I wanted to love Physician Formula since it's supposedly developed by physicians LOL but oh well!

I have #4 and #6 too and totally agree with you- they are a waste for me too!
Interesting post!

#3 & #11 have been also tested by me and they are hideous. totally agree with you!

Kristie said...

Most of the stuff I don't use are drugstore products. I bought them in hopes of saving money but they break me out terrible - especially the foundation.

Rinz said...

Kristie: I agree. I have my favorite foundations but i use them sparingly because they are a bit costly. So when i tried drugstore foundations to substitute, i got huge zits everywhere. That if I use it everyday. LIke for Colorstay, I use it only when i go to club and wash my face right away once i get home. It has no spf and stays on which is a plus.

ShoppingAddict said...

Wicked Post- i am about to do one just like it this week on my Blog.
:)
Thumbs up- nice to see a bit of honesty on a blog. x

Love posts like this.

Hmm,I wanted to try Colorstay, but I really don't want to break out. As you said I might have to get it for clubbing. :)

Ahleessa said...

I know that feeling so well. I buy things out of the urge and then ask myself "WHY!"... hehe~

Jo said...

I don't have any similar buys here but thanx for the the heads up! I love buying stuff just by reading the back of the packaging and marvelling at how good they sound. I haven had any regrets yet. Most of the beauty products I don't use would be stuff given as gifts. Most of those are still in their packaging.

Catanya said...

I love posts like this one! Besides, it is good to read someone who does not rave about all MAC eyeshadows for a while!
