I'm sure it will be widely agreed that there is nothing worse than splurging on a non-returnable beauty item that turns out to be a disappointment - and even worse, a regret!

In order to prevent the same mistake happening to you, here's some products I don't think are worth the money paid.


DIORSKIN FOREVER | SHADE 020.

I had seen tons of beauty bloggers rave about the DIOR skin Forever Foundation. I have fairly normal skin, sometimes a bit dry, sometimes too oily; this foundation did nothing for any dry or oil patches. I found the foundation clung to any dry patches, creating a very patchy looking base, and also oxidised throughout the day and turned into a very unnatural looking orange shade.

Definitely not worth the £32 I paid.

RIMMEL 5 PAN EYE SHADOW | SHADE 023 FOGGY GREY.

Even though £6.99 isn't extortionate pricing for an eye shadow palette, the quality of the shadows was definitely not worth it. Maybe I've been spoilt in the eyeshadow palette department with contenders such as the Naked Palettes, however, the pigmentation of the shadows was barely existent and colour barely showed on the lids. The shades look beautiful, with light shimmer in 2 and complete matte shades for the other 3, so it was a real disappointment when they didn't come close to my expectations.

MAC PRO LONGWEAR LIPGLASS | SHADE A52 PERSISTANT PEACH.

I've had this lipglass for years, and time and time again I bring it out of my make up collection to attempt to make it work. However, each time I am reminded why I don't like it. MAC are famous for their lip products, but I find this product too thick and sticky, and the colour isn't quite to my taste either. Overall, not an impressive purchase. However, I am willing to try other colours to test for any improvements.

BARRY M | 443 SOCIALITE.

Featured in a recent haul and is the most disappointing purchase of the bunch. The colour is outstanding and when first put on the nails it looks absolutely beautiful. However, in the following days (even the next day), the whole nail actually fell off. I was extremely shocked as I saw whole coats of colour fall to the floor and concluded it must be either the base or the top coat. After trying without a base coat, and then without a top coat, the nails still fell off each time. Devastating results for such a lovely colour and impeccable brand.
