Disappointing Products #1

*Disclaimer: The majority of the products that I talk about on my blog are usually products that I love. I don't often mention products that I don't like or have let me down. The following products are things that didn't work out for me. Some of them are really hyped up and loved. If any of these products are some of your favorites that's perfectly fine. This is just my opinion. I have combination/dry/sensitive skin.

L'Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder Foundation 
This is a foundation that I really wanted to love. It's extremely easy to apply and blend. It gives amazing coverage and has great lasting power. The problem I have with this product is the fact that it breaks me out whenever I wear it. I've tried wearing it over primer and it still managed to break me out. I'm so sad about it because it made my skin look flawless.

NYX Shine Killer
This primer is supposed to eliminate oil and keep you matte all day. I applied it as a primer where I get oily (my t-zone). It didn't last all day. Within a few hours my forehead was shiny. It also caused me to break out on my forehead.

This is a product that is raved about and loved by so many people. I really wanted to like it but it's just not for me. I hated the feeling of it on my skin. It felt sticky to me. I always felt like it was there and always had to urge to rub it off right after I applied it. This also broke me out in my t-zone where my skin isn't dry.

NYX Super Skinny Marker
This liquid eyeliner has a very fine tip making it easy to apply for someone like me who is awful at applying liquid eyeliner. The problem with this is that it smudges super fast. If you touch your eyes you're going to smudge it, if your eyes get teary it will smudge as well. It doesn't set at all. When I bought it, I knew it wasn't waterproof but I didn't expect it to smudge or rub off anytime I barely touch my eyelids.

ELF Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzer Duo in St. Lucia 
The bronzer in this duo is okay. It feels a little powdery and has decent pigmentation but it's not my favorite. The blush doesn't have much pigmentation, feels a little chalky and doesn't have very good lasting power. I'm not too disappointed because it was only $3. If you're thinking of trying this because you think it will be a dupe for NARS Orgasm/Laguna I'd skip this ELF Duo and spend the money on the NARS products because they're just amazing.

Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Cream 
This product is supposed to rehydrate and rebuild the skin's support structure. I applied this cream to my face at night and right after application it felt like my cheeks were burning. The next morning when I woke up my whole face was red. Needless to say this product does not agree with my sensitive skin.

Sincerely, JoJo.♥
