Disappointing Products #1

As a make up addict I end up buying a fair amount of make up and beauty items and whilst most of the time I love what I buy every so often I get a few crap things. I tend to do a bit of research into make up before I make a purchase, especially when it comes to high end products, but even then some things do not live up to expectations. So here is a little look at some products that haven't really floated my boat!

Make Up Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter in Peach Lights
I was so excited when I first got this because in the packaging it looks absolutely stunning! Even after I swatched it I was really happy and couldn't wait to try it out but when you put it on your face the beauty just doesn't translate. To even see any kind of colour on your skin you have to put loads of this on and then it starts to look cakey. I still have this in my make up collection because I'm not quite ready to chuck it away but it's fair to say it wasn't the sensation I was hoping for!!

Benefit Sunbeam
don't really know what good things to say about this? I am normally a massive Benefit fan and I love High beam but something about this just doesn't sit well with me! This is suppose to be a lovely bronzey highlighter but when I apply it I can barely even notice it on my skin!  Luckily I only have a tiny sample size of this because I have barely used and don't have any intention to use it again!!
Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation 16HR
think I purchased this last summer when it seemed like everyone was talking about and loving this thing and so did i to start with but over time me and this foundation really feel out. I'm not really sure what about this I don't like because colour wise it is almost perfect, better than most my other foundations, but there is just something about the way this looks on me that I don't like. This also isn't as high coverage as it claims and doesn't wear terribly well, it definitely is not 16 hour!! 

Bourjois Lip Crayon Peach On The Beach

My problem with this is definitely a colour thing because I have loads of the other shades  and love them! I am normally a massive fan of peachy coral coloured lip products but the colour of this just isn't flattering with my skin. It isn't really peach enough and kind of washes me out. Does anyone else have this problem?

Revlon Lip Crayon in Rendezvous

Again a massive fan of these in general but this has just become one of those products that I never reach for. The colour of this is really pretty and I love the way it feels on my lips but I just never mind myself reaching for this and it has slowly sunk to the bottom of my lip product pile because I just have better products.

Rimmel Apocalips

Where do I start with these? When these first came out everyone was talking about these and I couldn't wait to get my hands on them. I thought all the colours were lovely and the 3 I have are beautiful colours but I just never use these because they are so good damn hard to apply!! The applicatior seems to hold loads of product and when I apply these I just get so messy and it doesn't look cute at all!! I don't know if anyone else has this problem? But for me it has really put me off them unfortunately. 

So onto happier things now!! I don't like talking about products I don't like but some times you just need to vent about things that have let you down!! What products have disappointed you lately? I'm really proud to say that I have finally got myself into a good routine and seem to have got into the flow of blogging more recently as I've been posting everyday.
