It's discontinued but Kat Von D's Painted Love in Rosary. I am a sucker for dark lipsticks but this dried the shit out of my lips and it's so patchy. I don't see the Studded Kiss line as much of an improvement. Some of them are okay though.

Benefit They're Real Eyeliner because it's so hard to work with, and I end up making a huge mess all over my face whenever I use it. I want to love it because it looks so cool but I cannot for the life of me figure out to use it.

The Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer in Tan. I looked at reviews and swatches online and thought it was tan enough to be the color of my skin but nope, went on so ashy and pale.

The Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner. I wanted to like this so bad because the formula is amazing, but the packaging sucks so much. After a week, the eyeliner doesn't come up out of the tip when you twist it. I'm pissed because I wasted $20 on this because beauty gurus hailed it as the end all-be all of eyeliners.

Why is it that whenever everyone raves about a product I end up hating it? XD

it Cosmetics CC Cream: I got a sample size from Ulta since I heard so much about it, and damn I wish I had liked it. I got it in the fair shade and it was ORANGE, like my face looked oompa loompa status. Also I knew it had an orang-y scent, and usually when it comes to scents in makeup it either doesn't really bother me or I can ignore it. But THIS was just strong! It grossed me out whenever I used it! I didn't notice it working any better than my light coverage foundations as well.

I dunno, maybe I got a bad tube, but I tried it for a couple weeks until I couldn't take it anymore and returned it to Ulta.

lancome eye base!! this stuff is terrible! i bought it, found out it was terrible, went to review it on sephora and it was no longer there! they still carry it at nordstrom though. so dry and cakey and difficult to blend. i have the nyx eye base which is amazing compared. the lancome only last two-three uses before it dried out .

I came here to say the exact same thing. Loved the original, hated the new one. Serious let down. Blergh.

Burt's Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme - this is literally a block of sickly sweet smelling cement. This "creme" hurts to apply and once it's on, feels so greasy. And the SMELL! Old milk and arsenic. Just disgusting.

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Audacious - what in the Bozo the Clown hell!? This balm is such a bright neon orange, and so patchy in application.

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes in Night Calming - These wipes are just so dry, and what little liquid in the wipes burns the crap out of my eyes!

Caudalie Grape Water Face Mist - You might as well save your money and put your face under the sink tap. Not at all moisturizing. Refreshing on a hot day, but way too expensive to do something regular tap water can do.

So I bought the Murad AHA/BHA exfoliator... and not only does it seem like any other drugstore exfoliator, but I've started breaking out. Some reviews online say that you'll break out for a week and then afterwards is when you see the actual results. But if I keep breaking out I'm exchanging that thing for a Naked palette or something.

Yes to carrots face cleanser. It felt like my skin was burning when I applied it. Lushes big shampoo I think the lemon in it caused some scalp sensitivity.

I actually love the colour, but the formula is the worst thing I've tried in a long, long, LONG time :(

NYX Round Lipstick in Bruised - great colour, but patchy, uneven, slides off...

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner - how is this 'award winning'? Maybe the one I got (I got mine in a beauty box) is old or something, but I find that the tip is pretty damn dry, application is awkward as I have to go over my line multiple times, and the nib in general is too hard. Maybe my lids are too oily? Maybe it doesn't work over shadow? I don't know. I don't like it. I will just stick to my slim liners from L'Oreal and Maybelline.

I'm probably the only person on the planet who thinks this. But I found the NARS Ita Brush very very disappointing. It was a lot softer than it looked, I'll give it that. But it really wasn't anything special considering the price. I'm gonna be returning this.

Bite Beauty agave lip mask. Glorified vaseline that doesn't moisturize at all and just sits on your lips. Texture was disgusting. Not worth the money.

I'm a little disappointed by Charlotte Tilbury. While I like some of her stuff, I don't like the way they cut corners. No mini brushes, sponges etc in her products. (ya know how most quads have mini shadow brushes etc). Today I spent 200 dollars on her new lip treatment, scrub and other stuff. It came with a little red "lipstick bag" as an incentive to buy. It's so small you can't fit anything in there except some quarters or bobby pins. But most disappointing was how TINY TINY the lip treatments are. When I say small I mean, a travel size. 40 dollars for a lip balm that is half the size of a TRAVEL aquaphor. Today was my last purchase.

Lancome hypnose drama mascara - it just ends up looking weird and spidery on my lashes.
tarte eyeshadows - they're not bad but the pigmentation& staying power isn't as good as some other brands so I doubt I'll get anymore of their palettes.
anything from Pixi - luckily I've only had them in my ipsy bag, but the products are cheaply packaged and don't perform well, especially since their price range is up there with the things I buy from sephora. many of the products I have from nyx, l'oreal, etc are cheaper and way better.

I feel like everyone and their mother loves the Makeup Forever HD foundation and it's really nothing special to me. The coverage is ok and the finish isn't super fantastic. I don't think it's worth the price....

The rebel bloom lipsticks, horrible formula. They are patchy and settle into the lines on my lips, not to mention the one I have has little color payoff.

LOreal Paris Volume Million Lashes. I bought it a year ago and maybe I got a shitty batch or something because everyone seems to love it. It made my lashes really sticky and weighed down and looking all stubby and gross. :?

Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde mascara. Got it in a beauty box recently. It has pretty good reviews online and I saw it got some magazine's readers' choice award. I don't understand how. There are three options: it's either a horrible mascara and people have no idea what they're talking about, I got the only crap one they accidentally made, or I can't apply mascara. The brush doesn't have enough spiky bits, and too much mascara goes on the lashes, so it clumps like crazy on me (when it's supposedly supposed to give volume with no clumps), to the point where I've had to take all my make up off because my mascara looked so terrible. I usually don't mind a bit of clumping. But this was ridiculous.

I don't like it either. I got the waterproof one and within an hour or so of applying its on my cheeks. I have extremely dry skin so its not like I have oils making it move. I can make it look ok and not clumpy/spidery if I'm very careful. One extra swipe/wriggle and I have to start again.
