|+ Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector|
It always sucks when you when you fork out the moolah on something shithouse. Here’s my list:
L’Oreal Studio Secrets Anti-Shine Mattifying Primer - It doesn’t keep shine at bay and it doesn’t keep my makeup on for longer. Fail. I believe this is just silicone in a bottle so it feels all soft and lush when you slap it on but it doesn’t do anything more. It’s not so bad that I’m going to chuck it but I won’t be re-purchasing.
Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector (finished this ages ago so the bottle is gone) - I expected miracles from this product (and I don’t usually buy into the hype) because the marketing made it seem like it was the product for pigmentation. It was pretty exxy ($89) and all it did was make my skin really soft. That’s great and all but I can get the same effect from something a hell of a lot cheaper. I was told that I’d probably need to buy a second or third bottle to see good results but I’m not willing to buy more of something that may or may not work. P.S. It also left an oily film on my face.
Savvy eyeliner in Ivory – Look, I wasn't expecting this $2 liner to be superduper awesome but it was really quite crappy. I bought this because I wanted to see if white liner made me eyes look brighter/better. It didn’t and this pencil sucked. The pigmentation is pants and it tugged on my waterline. Into the bin, you go.
Benefit’s the POREfessional - I bought this and ranted in my haul post about how awesome it was and how very excited I was that I bought it. *sigh* Look, it does work but it wears off far too quickly. There’s a reason why the counter chick told me that I should chuck it in my bag 'in case' I needed a re-apply during the day. This isn't a massive disappointment because it does work but I'm not a fan because it doesn’t last and needs to be re-applied and I truly cbf. For those of you who don't mind a few re-applies during the day, it may be worth a shot.
