Lush Shower Jelly:
I love the smell of this and it was really fun to use at first. However after about a months use the jelly started falling apart and no matter how hard I tried the bath would end up covered in purple jelly. My parents have thought I had a gross infection! It's a shame because I will have to chuck a 3/4 tub away.
Burts Bees Lip Balm*:
This isn't necessarily a bad product but it is really hyped up so my expectations were high. It isn't creamy or soft enough for my liking and no way near moisturizing enough. The balmy feeling only lasts fifteen minutes before I feel like I need to reapply. From the branding I was expecting a really natural, creamy, moisturizing balm but it didn't deliver.
Maybelline Blush in Flash Plum:
I mentioned this before in the best and worst of 2012 post and surprise surprise it came under worst. The texture is rough and the pigmentation is bad so it's pretty useless.
Stila Lip Glosses:
The trio was a gift to me so I hate to have to include them in the post. The brush on the end seems unhygienic as it gets clogged up with old lip gloss and to get any out you have to turn a screw at the bottom so it is so easy to get too much out at once. The texture is soo sticky which I absolutely hate. To top it off the pigmentation is poor too. I actually don't have a good thing to say about them.
Bare Minerals Foundation:
Lots of people love this but I can't get on with it. The coverage is very light to the point you can't tell you have foundation on. It doesn't give enough radiance for my liking and it makes my pores look even bigger. Maybe if my skin was clear and glowy naturally I'd love it.
Sleek Brow Kit:
After complaining about eyebrow pencils lots of people recommended this to me. The powder section is quite good but the wax is so red it makes my eyebrows look ginger. I am yet to find a good eyebrow wax or pencil that doesn't have a red tint or hefty price tag.
When I finished taking photos of the products Tilly decided it was her turn for a photoshoot!
