Disappointing Purchases

I hate to be negative, but I thought it would be helpful to blog about products that I’ve tried and found disappointing.

 I’ve always had problems with super dry, flaky under eyes lately, and my concealer looks cakey and creased. Smashbox BB Cream Eye is supposable for all those things I have trouble with under the eyes. I assumed it was a concealer that would also hydrate and prime in one step. I thought the priming would conceal circles and smooth my lines all in one step. But the BB Cream Eyes did not have enough coverage for my under eye circles and did not noticeably smooth lines.

Smashbox Hydrating Under Eye Primer seemed like it was made for me! I tried it on in the store, and it did seem to make my concealer go on more smoothly and disguise some of the lines. But, my concealer still creased a little while later. I was sad. As I would not ever be repurchasing this products. 
I also returned the much-hyped Sephora brand Formula X nail polish system. They do have a great color selection, so I tried Cosmic, a dark purple shimmer. It was not very shiny, and it chipped the next day. I have gotten much better results with OPI.

  3. The smashbox primer is literally life. It's worth all the money in my opinion. I however have not tried the concealer.
