I think this might be the first time that I am doing something like this, on my blog and trust me I never want to talk about products I don’t like. But, I thought it would be fun to do a Drugstore Product Disappointments . I think we always tend to talk about the products we love and never mention the things we don’t really like.
♥ Mabelline Vivid Matte Liquid “Rebel Red” “Nude Flush”*: We all know that liquid lipsticks are all the rage right now. The drugstores hardly have any liquid lipsticks. I however not purchase any because the bad reviews were claiming that they were not matte at all. I found that rather weird because the packaging does clearly say “matte”. When Influenster selected me to review these I was pretty excited. Lets just say I was highly disappointed by these.
As we all know Maybelline does have some of the best lipsticks out there. So, I thought they would for sure get these right. I love how the apply and feel on the lips and smell but, when a products packaging says “matte” you expect it too be matte. You can either expect a very drying matte or a comfortable matte. These are straight up a gloss to me. There is nothing matte about these Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid lipsticks.
♥ Wet n Wild Geometetic Highlighting Powder “Desert Explorations”: We all know Wet n Wild are all the craze right now since we all on the hunt for their Megaglo Highlighting Powders. When I saw the Geometric Highlighting Powder in the Wet n Wild display I just grab it, thinking that it would be good. If you are thinking you are going to get a popping highlight you can forget it. The only way I can describe this, if you own the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette. This would be something similar and a lot cheaper. So you will get a very, very subtle “glow”. I would really suggest not even picking this up, it really is not worth it.
♥ Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy top coat and “berry treasure” : I have never worn gel nail polish so I was pretty excited when I got to try these I was super excited to have my nailpolish last longer than 2 days. Plus how awesome is it that you don’t have to use the lamp you can just paint and go. Unfortunately, this nail polish did not even last a day on my nails. I found that odd because gel polish is supposed to withhold on your nails for at least 2 weeks. Save your money and just go to the nail salon and get a real gel manicure.
Have you tried any of these products? What have been some of your disappointments?
