Disappointing Beauty Products | April 2018

Hi everyone! I hope you’re all well.

Another Disappointing Beauty Products post is upon us, where I talk you through things I’ve tried recently and did not bloody like. Disclaimer as per, I’m not slating the brands, I usually love the brands I feature in these, but I didn’t like these particular products, and I pride this blog on transparency and honesty when it comes to reviews, so THERE WE HAVE IT.

Bondi Sands Self Tanning Mist in ‘Dark’ – WANTED TO LOVE THIS. SO BADLY. In all honesty, I think I’m going to try the foam as everyone raves about it. The mist did not work for me. When I first applied it I thought I was really dark, but I think it was just the lighting in my bedroom as I woke up a very odd colour, almost grey to be honest, and slightly green in certain lights, (my natural skin colour tbh) and it was also patchy AF. Fake tan always goes patchy to a degree after it’s been on for a certain amount of time, but this was immediately patchy on my skin, it applied patchily, and just seemed to get worse over the coming days. It’s a no from me, huns.

EX1 Invisiwear Liquid Foundation – I am raging because I saw Margot Robbie and Adele wearing this at awards ceremonies and looking like flawless little babes, and it just looked SHITE on me. I feel like it sat on my skin, accentuated my pores, and also worst of all, that area around your nose, the corners of the nostrils etc, this just did that horrible thing where it goes all oxidised, patchy and BLEURGH. It just really did not bode well with my skin which is majorly unfortunate cos, y’know…I wanna look like Margot Robbie.

L’Oreal Brow Artist Plumper – Crispy, grey brows…that’s all I have to say. When first applying this when it’s wet, I legit felt like one of them models that have really nice thick, arched brows, then a few minutes later when it set, they were just hard, ashy and had no definition to them whatsoever, and the arch seemed to have dropped. Not good.

So, that’s another disappointing products post done and dusted for another month…I shall speak to you all very soon! Also (shameless plug), if you don’t already, you can follow me on @thebrightongirl on Instagram where I chat about my life day to day if you’re interested.

Anyway, speak soon!

All my love BGP xx
