I know that I took you all on a bit of a roller coaster with all my mini reviews of the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. But now I am going to specify that I strongly dislike this moisturizer. It made my skin break out tremendously. I swear, it took three weeks for my skin to go back to the way it was. It made no noticeable improvements in the dryness of my skin - which is something you'd expect from a package that reads "intense therapy". I will not be repurchasing.
Next I have the BECCA Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector. I am a huge fan of products that shrink the appearance of pores, so I was really hoping for a miracle worker with this one. Unfortunately, I just hated the formula. It dries really quickly into a matte finish, but let me just say... way too matte. It begins to tug on your skin as you're rubbing it in. Its very gunky, as opposed to a nice silicone based primer like the Benefit Cosmetics Porefessional. This primer made my dry skin look ever drier than it is, and accentuated my pores.
I received this Blinc Mascara in a Birchbox a long while ago and only recently decided to give it a try. Its supposed to put tubes around your lashes, rather than coating them like paint. I absolutely hated it. It gave no drama to my lashes, which is definitely what I go for. I found that it grouped my lashes together, and I could actually kind of see the "tubes". It looked horrible on my eyes. It was definitely different, and I know a lot of people love it because its easy to remove but I was not a fan.
The NYC Quick Dry Nail Polish in Park Avenue is a color I am drawn to in the fall. Applying the polish was easy, and the color payoff wasn't horrible. My issue was that it chipped the same day. You need a top coat that performs miracles to get any use out of this, and I don't have one.
These Yes To Blueberries Age Refresh Cleansing Facial Towelettes were possibly my biggest disappointment. They smell great, and I love the packaging - but thats where the positives end. I don't know what exactly it is about the towelettes (I believe maybe they aren't wet enough), but they made me feel like I was barely cleaning my skin and removing any makeup/dirt/etc. Compared to my holy grail Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes, they fell short. They didn't make my skin feel quite as nice and clean. I will most definitely not be purchasing these.
If you've gotten through this whole post than I applaud you! What are your recent disappointments?
