Products To Stay Away From #1

For the past couple of months now I have been going through my make-up collection and I've come to a conclusion on a few products which I regret purchasing.
www.charlottespicks.com
Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
In my opinion this is one of the worst foundations I've ever used; it's horrendous. Due to it being a mousse the consistency is nice and smooth when you apply it to your face, however it does cake up really badly after a couple of hours and it leaves you looking orange. It also smells disgusting but other than that it's packaging is a small glass pot which is good for travelling.

Collection Illuminating Touch Concealer
This is a liquid brightening concealer which comes out with pink undertones. I really dislike the application of this product because if you twist the bottom too much tonnes of product comes out and you have no-where to go with it. Also, the colour range is poor as you can only get it in three shades: Natural, Naked and Glow meaning they're either too dark or too light for your skin tone. 

Avon ColorTrend Perfect and Hide Concealer
This concealer is in the form of a lipstick which I like the appearance of although the product itself is disappointing. Likewise with the Collection one the shade range is diabolical, but I didn't think it would get as bad as only having two colours to choose out of though; Light and Medium I have the medium one and it's extremely orange.

New York Colour Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer
In my last empties I mentioned a primer and here we are again, another primer which I didn't find any good. When you apply this to your face it does feel smooth, just like it says on the packaging and name but when you put your make-up on it feels as if it's sliding around on your face which isn't brilliant. There are many more drugstore primers which are far better than this one likewise for all of these products.

Seventeen Va Va Voom Waterproof Volume Mascara
Now. I wouldn't say that this mascara it dreadful; it's just the wand. I find it very intimidating. The packaging however I love as it's so trendy and catches your eye instantly, which is why I purchased it in the first place and I had heard good reviews about it. Va Va Voom waterproof volume mascara is supposedly a volumizing mascara but I disagree with this completely as I do find that sometimes it can clump your eyelashes. Although, I love how black the mascara actually is and I find it is waterproof, perfect for those blustery rainy days. It's just the volumizing problem and the fact that the wand is colossal so I don't go anywhere near it.

New Look Lipstick
Baring in mind I bought this lipstick a while back now, when it was in the sale in New Look, I don't think this product is available however I have noticed that they still do their own brand of lipsticks but I'm not sure if they're the same consistency or anything like that. Anyway, the packaging I dislike because I think it's very large, inelegant and the colours are quite childish. I do like the colour as it's bright and coral which is perfect for the summer, although it isn't durable. I have to re-apply my lipstick lots of times throughout the day to make sure that it stays the same colour, which isn't very practical.

Simple Spotless Skin Rapid Action Spot Zapper
I have one word for this product, unhygienic. Nothing more nothing less; do not go near it.

Freederm Fast Track Gel
This is a very odd product. When I started out with this product I'd use it on a spot as soon as I noticed it, I applied it generously onto the spot and I'd realize that it was leaving white crusty bits. I was really confused as it wasn't actually getting rid of the spot or reducing its redness it was just producing these flakes. I stopped using it a while ago as it doesn't do anything for my skin, I kept going back and testing it out every so often to see if it was a once occurring action but no. Now it's resting peacefully in the bin...

So after all that rambling it's come to the end of this blog post about all the products I dislike and advise you to stay away from. I salute any of you who've made it this far and are currently reading this sentence. Congratulations to you I am very proud. I don't know if anyone else has experienced the same issues as me with any of these products but then again all items work differently on everyone's skins. Which products have you been disliking this month, let me know in the comments below! Thank you for reading,
