Disappointing Beauty Products of 2017

Just as much as I found great products over the year, there are obviously some products that I regretted buying.

I often caved in to the stellar reviews online, only to find out they did not work for me.

Egyptian Magic Cream 
To be honest, this product has been in the market for quite some time. Many celebrities endorses it, Kate Hudson, Eva Mendez, Brooke Shields etc The product is 100% natural which is great. It looks like Vaseline, only thicker. But it is too oily for my liking. Can you imagine slathering Vaseline all over your face? It doesn't absorb, just an oily mess. It comes in a tub [not hygienic by the way] and claimed to be a multi purpose cream, but really.... Why pay RM160 for essentially a tub of Vaselline?

Clinique Liquid Facial Soap 
A friend of mine swore by this product so I guess, why not try. Worst decision of my life! I rarely had acne but using these, bam! 3-4 pustule acne at the same time. Since I wear a lot of products, I tried staying off everything and just focus solely on this cleanser. Lo and behold, I found the culprit. So many reasons not to love this facial soap. It causes breakout, smells terrible and I don't feel 'clean' after using it. So what's the point?

Tartelette Tease Clay Eyeshadow Palette  
This particular product is a miss for me. The pigmentation is very bad and it wears off easily (even with primers). It flakes terribly and messy. To be honest, the colors are nothing to shout about; it look better on screen but upon application it turned greyish. Pure disappointment. 

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation 
I found the perfect shade but it DOES.. NOT.. blend well. I've tried using different type of brushes, and makeup sponges but still it is streaky and patchy. It clings to dry patches and my skin looks extremely oily after merely 1 hour of application. Never had I ever hate foundation so much. Well, this is the first. 

Breena Beauty Blending Pearl [pink] 
I only bought this because of reviews saying it's comparable to the Beauty Blender. It does not people! Although I love the shape of Breena's Blending Pearl, that is the only good thing about it. I might be the only person who is not in love with this product. I found that my foundation applied streaky no matter how I used it (wet/dry). So nope. Beauty Blender is still the best for me. Breena has come up with a different blending pearl, in black. Might try that one later this year.
