Products To Stay Away From #2

Today I have the second dose of products which I advise you to stay away from following my first one which you can find here. It has been a very long time since the last one but that means I've got a bucket load of products to show you this time so lets get straight on into it!

Maybelline's Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser
This is a primer which is loved by many people around the world, all except me it seems. The primer itself is a gel like consistency which provides a smooth base for your make-up to slide onto. Let me exaggerate 'slides' onto!  For one, when applying make-up onto the primer it slid everywhere and wouldn't stay in place which was frustrating when trying to buff in foundation and secondly, I didn't find that the primer blurred or erased my pores; they looked exactly the same. Someone please tell me that I'm not alone on disliking this primer! 

Collection Cover&Go Foundation&Concealer Duo
When I first picked this up in Superdrug for £5.99 I thought it was rather expensive for Collection, following on from this I instantly thought I'd found a brilliant product so I had no regrets when I purchased it. However when I came home to try it out I thought otherwise. The foundation was thick, orange (pink toned) and creamy-not ideal considering I'm extremely pale it looked like I'd had a bad fake tan experience! The concealer part of the duo is one of the worst concealers I've ever used, it's sticky and prone to bacteria whilst being 5X darker than the foundation; shocking!

Freedom Pro Contour-Post
Although the packaging of this compact is lovely and sleek the powders within are awful.

Natural Collection Solo Eye Shadow
I picked this up just for a one time use I was disappointed. I wanted an eye-shadow which was a pale, pastel pink for one day and because I didn't want to spend more than £5 on the product I thought this would be perfect but no, I was wrong. If you swatch it with your finger onto the back of your hand it will produce a small amount of colour but with the wipe of a finger it would be gone within seconds. When applied to my lid it was non-existent and no pigmentation showed which I was let down by.


MUA's Intense Colour Eyeliner
This is a good eyeliner for short periods of time whilst having the sharpener included within the lid which is a handy add on however it's not long lasting. It will smudge if you put it on your eyelid and when placing it on your waterline it'll disappear after a hour or two as the durability factor isn't there unlike the full intensity of the black which is produced. 

Body Shop Mini lipsticks-Post
These lipsticks are perfectly fine only if you can stand the smell of their scent, it's really tacky and disgusting.

Rimmel Lipstick Lock-Post 
I have a love hate relationship regarding this locker as the first time I used it it would sting on my lips causing the strangest sensation for myself. Another fault is that when you apply it you get the hit by the stench of nail polish remover and it's strong. Very strong! 

We've finally reached the end of this post, let me know if you've tried any of these products in the comments below and what you think about them. What products have you been disliking recently? Thanks for reading,
