COSMETICS THAT DISAPPOINTED ME

cosmétiques qui m'ont déçue, avis mauvais produit de beauté, bb cream nude magic l'oréal, palette correcteurs allround catrice, shine gloss serum toni&guy

Regarding beauty products, I don’t buy as much as I used to do, and I always look for information about the products beforehand, to be sure. But sometimes, I purchase a (bad) product without knowing it… and the surprise is not always nice.
I’m sharing three cosmetics that disappointed me these past few months, and I’m suggesting better products to replace them.

                                                                                                                          

The “touched the bottom but is still digging” :
The Nude Magic BB Cream from L’Oréal

When the beautiful weather comes back, I want to wear something lighter than foundation. I don’t usually use BB creams, but I’d heard nice things about the Nude Magic from L’Oréal, so I decided to give it a try. Big mistake…

Since I have a really pale skin, I obviously chose the lighter shade. I still did a quick test on my wrist prior to the purchase, to be sure : everything seemed fine.
But the day I tried this product on my face, the result was awful : I was orange, literally. I could have gone to a reality-TV casting, I was ready. But I chose to remove my makeup instead, it was more reasonable.

I don’t know if there’s something wrong with my tube or if it was mislabelled, because I didn’t notice anything wrong when I tried it in the store. If some of you are using this product, I’d like to read your opinion in the comment section…
Anyway, I’ll have to give this BB cream to someone, because even tanned in the middle of August, it won’t suit me.

The “can do better” :
Allround Concealer Palett from Catrice Cosmetics

When I discovered this palett in my beauty store, I was happy : I was looking for an orange concealer to hide my dark circles, and this palett has one, and 4 other shades. Even happier when I saw the price : less than 4€, a good deal ! Now, I understand why…

I was quite enthusiast at first : I tried the palett really quickly when I got home, as I was already wearing makeup, and it apparead to me that the result was quite good.
I was not that glad the next day when I tried to do my whole makeup with it. The two coloured concealers (orange and green) are not pigmented at all, don’t blend well and last for as long as it takes for Usain Bolt to run 100 meters.
When you try to cover them with a natural shade – yes, this is necessary, unless walking around with a green face is your thing – the colour doesn’t stay put and create a nice greyish mess.

Regarding the three natural concealers, it’s not much better. As you can see on the pictures, I tried to use the medium shade as much as possible because I really wanted to use this palett, but I’m giving up. Like the orange and the green shades, they really mark the skin, are difficult to apply and to blend and they don’t last. In addition, I don’t think this palett can last really long : after a few uses, I already see the bottom of the medium concealer. And believe me, I don’t paint my face with a trowel in the morning…

Given the price, I’m not going to cry, but it’s too bad. I think this palett will stay in my purse in case of emergency, but that’s it.

The “doesn’t do anything, but does it well” :
Classic Shine Gloss Serum de Toni&Guy

Hair serums and me, it’s a long story. I’ve own dozens of them until now, but rarely used them more than once (don’t worry, they made my mom happy, I don’t like wasting).

Usually, this type of product tends to weigh down my hair and make it greasy… At least, that’s what I thought before I realised that good serums don’t give you this result. But this is not one of them.

A tiny bit of product is enough to make you look like you didn’t shampoo for the past 17 days. And I have dry and thick hair, I can’t imagine the result on someone who has it oily and thin !
Do I really need to say that the shiny effect is not ? … No, that’s what I thought.
