That Don't Impress Me Much

Yes that is a Shania Twain song and yes it is now stuck in my head but whenever anything disappoints me these lyrics immediately jump to mind which does actually cheer me up. Anyways I digress, I once got an aresy comment asking me if I ever wrote anything negative. To be honest I don't have any products I really hate but here's a few that just didn't impress me or that I don't get on with.

Maybelline Babylips

I'm not one to jump on the blogger bandwagon, mainly because I'm a poor student but I love a good lipbalm (I mean who doesn't) so when these hit the shelves I went out and added it to my trolley. I've given it so many chances but me and babylips were just not meant to be. I love the packaging & was gutted when we didn't bond. I have an issue with the smell of this one as it reminds me of liquid Nurofen which I had to take pretty much everyday throughout my childhood but I could cope with that. My issue is, it doesn't moisturise. If anything it dries out my lips & I have to apply more. I'll stick to my beloved Balmi.

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation

I love my Wake me up foundation so I thought I'd give this one a go. I got the same colour as my wake me up but it seems to be darker but my main issue with this one is wear time. I dunno it just doesn't seem to last on me even with primer and powder. A lot of people seem to rave about this one & not get on with the Wake me up whereas I'm the complete opposite.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara

I loved everything about this mascara except the most important thing. I think the packaging is awesome and the brush looks amazing but I just can't seem to get it to not clump which is a massive shame because I really wanted to love it as I love rimmel.

Lancome lipstick

This was one of the first lipsticks I ever bought after a lovely guy at the beauty counter did my makeup for me. Its a gorgeous colour, it smells amazing but it just doesn't last. I can put it on and by the time I walk out the door it's gone. So sad.

MUA Luxe London Velvet Lip lacquer

I spent ages trying to find this in the shops as it was always out of stock. I finally got it and was so excited. It looks amazing on & I thought I'd found a cheaper option to my beloved but expensive lime crime. I was gutted to find that after an hour it started to crumble on the lips and left me with a patchy crumbly lip which is not a good look. I could cope with poor wear time because of how good it looked to start but the fact that it crumbled & looked gross was a massive let down.

Models Own HyperGel

I'm a massive nail polish addict and models own have an amazing range of colours but I cannot get on with the hypergel range. Its too thick for me and I found it bubbled and took forever to dry. I was devastated as their colour choice is amazing.

Revlon Lip Butter

I don't know what it is with me and products that everyone else seems to rave about. This looked great for a lip product addict. A lip balm with a wash of colour. I found this wasn't very moisturising and I still needed a mirror to apply it but the wash of colour didn't last very long and I'm to lazy to reapply all the time.
