5 Why Did I Buy Products

Hey dolls I was going through my make-up collection trying to organise it once again and came across a few products I never ever reach for. Some I may have tried a time or two and others Ive done no more then swatch them. Its not because I don't like them or I wouldn't of wasted my money its because I got them home and they didn't work on me.
* Stila Custom Colour Blush in Coral - Its gorgeous but so so pigmented that I never wear it ( the swatch it one light swipe by my finger)
* MAC A Perfect Day lipstick (amplified) - Swatched it looks like a neutral pink and lovely but it makes me look dead when I ware it on my lips
* Benefit Boi-ing Concealer - I have been using Erase Paste for years and love it but the Boi-ing doesn't cover enough and looks cake under my eyes.
* Stila Smudge Pot in Cobalt - Beautiful bright blue but its dry and hard to use (since I opened it)
* DuWop Mattillume Highlighter in Darker - Doesn't show much on my skin and completely disappears with in a few hours, would rather reach for one of my other Highlighters.

  1. I love posts like these! They save me money :) I was interested in the benefit concealer- glad to hear it isn't worth the cash!!

    Check out my LippyGirl Blusher giveaway!

  2. Now Erase Paste is totally worth the money in my opinion. Works great and you need so little it last forever.

  3. I actually like the blush, the color is really gorgeous! Have you tried to apply it with a fan brush? It really helps when a blush is excessively pigmented.

  4. I'll have to try that. I love bright blushes but the slightest touch of this one on my cheeks looks like I applied 10 layers of it

  5. I think we can all agree that the erase paste is a pretty great product. That lipstick really does look like a dead color to me :S

  6. I HATE boi-ing with a passion , it separates on my skin and looks a state :(

  7. Thanks for the info , I cant find this brand on my country
    Great blog

  8. I love Boi-ing! It's the best concealer I've ever used. It's like spackle!! Lol

  9. I think I have the wrong colour. I went for medium and no matter how much I blend you can see it under my eyes plus I pretty much blend it so much you can see darkness under my eyes:0

  10. I've been looking for A Perfect Day everywhere! If you decide to sell it please let me know!! :)
