Products I regret buying #1

Over the past couple of years I’ve bought a lot of products which I’ve ended up disliking quite a lot. I hate wasting my money on products that are only fit for the purpose of throwing in the bin.
I thought I’d start a feature on my blog called ‘Products I Regret Buying’ as I find them quite interesting (more than favourites posts sometimes), let me know if this is something you would be interested in.

So, here are the products I regret buying…

Dior Nude Natural Glow Hydrating foundation – L’Oreal Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Dry Mist for face – Caudalie Teint Divin tinted moisturizer – Maybelline The Falsies Volume Express – Couvrance Transcluent Mosaic Powder

Dior Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Foundation:
The foundation itself is not the problem here, but the packaging. I love the fact that this foundation looks sheer and natural as well as it lasts for a very long time. The color 020 is also a perfect match for my skin. However, after about a month use of this product I started getting problems with getting the product out of the bottle, it seemed the pump was broken. I managed to fix it a couple of times, but it only lasted a couple of pumps and then it was stuck again. The bottle is rubbish and for the price you pay for this product Dior should have much better packaging.

L’Oreal Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Dry Mist for face:
The self tan does look very natural and there is almost no smell. The problem is it’s almost too natural, I applied it before going to bed and the day after I could not see a difference. I think you have to apply this product many days in a row to see a difference (which makes you finish the product pretty fast). I also have a problem with the packaging of this product, the first couple of sprays where fine and how they should be, however after a couple of times use the spray started coming out as bigger ‘drops’ (not sure how to explain it), leaving spots in the face, not very flattering!

Caudalie Teint Divin Tinted Moisturizer:
I already talked about this product in my ‘tinted moisturizers’ post. I usually adore Caudalie products but the color of this product is just wrong. I find it to be too dark and too pink-orange for my pale skin. It is also strongly scented and has no SPF. Not very impressed with this product, unfortunately.

Maybelline The Falsies Volume Express:
Usually I like mascaras from Maybelline, however this is one of the worst mascaras I’ve used. It did give some volume and length as promised but after after a couple of hours I was shocked to see myself in the mirror, this mascara flaked horribly. The scent is also very chemical. Big fail from Maybelline on this one.

Avene Couvrance Transcluent Mosaic Powder:
Overall, this powder is really light, which is both positive and negative. It doesn’t look chalky which is good, though it requires touching along the day, and not only once, many times. It has an integrated mirror, but doesn’t come with a sponge, which is very annoying. The packaging of this product is also rubbish, after two weeks it broke when I tried to open it!

So those are the products I regret buying. If you have any questions about the products I mentioned, please feel free to comment below. Let me know if you have some products you regret buying! :)
