Disappointing Products

Covergirl The Supersizer Mascara | I had really high hopes for this mascara because I’d heard a lot of good things about it, but I absolutely hate it! It is by far the clumpiest mascara I’ve ever tried. The bristles on the wand are almost nonexistent, so the product goes on in one huge glob. I forced myself to try using it three or four times, but every time I applied it, I had to rush to use a lash comb to remove 99% of the product before it dried on my lashes and fused them into a giant clump. It was a huge mess each time. I’m at a loss as to how anyone likes this mascara!

The Body Shop Satsuma Body Butter | This is more of a personal preference, but I just cannot get past the scent of this one. As far as being moisturizing, this body butter is fine. I found the fragrance to be sickeningly strong, like orange wood cleaner. Also, I don’t think I’m really a body butter type of lady because I really dislike moisturizers in tubs in general; they’re just too messy!

Maybelline Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation | I feel like I may have liked this foundation earlier this year before my skin became crazy oily. As of now though, it just does not agree with my skin at all. It clings around my nose and goes whitish, accentuating any flakiness. Yes, I have super oily skin (in places) that is also flaky…joy! It also breaks up and basically slides off my face within two hours. By the end of the day, my face is a complete oil slick. I may keep this to try it in winter because I really hate giving up on foundations.

Milani Easybrow – Dark Brown | I tried this brow product a while back before giving in and getting the Anastasia Brow Wiz. It’s similar to the Brow Wiz in that it’s a twist-up pencil with a spoolie on the opposite end, but it does not compare to the Anastasia. First of all, the nib is quite a bit larger, too large, I would say, to create a natural-looking brow. The color of the pencil is also very warm – almost yellowy, as opposed to the ashy dark brown that looks most natural on me. I also found it to be quite slippery during application. All in all, it was really difficult to achieve the kind of look I like for my brows with this product.

That’s all! Have you tried any of these products? I would love to know if any of you got the Supersizer mascara to work for you! Please help me understand the hype!

    I agree! My favourite brow product (basically an exact dupe for the Anastasia Brow wiz is the Soap and Glory Archery brow pencil, highly recommend! x

    I’m surprised the covergirl mascara was disappointing because their mascaras are usually the best.

      I was surprised too! Covergirl Clump Crusher is an old favorite of mine.
