Buyer's Remorse

video
Sad but true, we all spend money on products that we regret. Here are a few of my impulse (and some not so impulse) buys that I regret. What are yours?

Thanks for the advice! I've been having a problem lately with my mascara ending up on my brow bone (I have hooded eyes) so I thought maybe I'd invest in some nice mascara. I got the Dior mascara that everyone raves about for christmas. Looked great on, but still ended up smudged on my brow bone. :( Any great suggestions for that?

A few things I got recently: Jergens tinted moisturizer was just as pathetic. Biore Face wash that they compare to Proactiv... very harsh and over drying. Those are two off the top of my head.

MAC foundation. Funny story - at the time I purchased MAC's foundation, the MAC artist tried to sell me the cream-colored base you mentioned in this post!

To be honest... I am one of those who is not a big fan of Urban Decay Primer Potion. I know, I know.... "It's the best stuff ever!" Actually, for me... not so much. The thing that works best for me is actually Lancomes Aquatique and MACs Paint Pots. For some reason the UDPP seems to dry up on my eyelids and keeps my eyeshadow from blending well. I have run into others who have had the same experience with UDPP as well. Just goes to show that just because something works well for one, doesn't mean it will work well for all.
Why not use your Maxine's Mop as a large fan brush to dust off fall out? Just a thought.

Thanks for the info :) great stuff. I do have a product that I bought & I really really dislike...It's Mary kay's Mineral foundation powder ($18) & thier mineral powder brush ($10). The foundation doesn't cover, it just feels like I'm putting it on and it falls right off. Also it goes up my nose & hurts for a long time after. The brush sheds like nothing else, ugh.
I have a few other things that I've bought & just wasn't worth it or I really dislike but can't think of them off hand right now...lol.

Your makeup looks gorgeous in this video. Do you have a tutorial for it?
I probably have a million products I have purchased and hated, but the most recent was a mascara: Maybelline Falsies. UGH! I had read about it in a magazine... it had all kinds of hype, and it was absolutely AWFUL! Probably the worst mascara I have ever tried. And, unfortunately, I have tried a lot of awful mascaras.

Brittany, yes I do =) it's called Sariah's look. Kamryn, TOTALLY feel you on the MAC foundation and good job not buying the base =). Codi...tell us how you really feel. Dominique, I used to use the Mary Kay mascara...BEST stuff on the market then they DISCONTINUED IT!!!!!! Mary Kay is not my fav on the whole but I lOvE the eye makeup remover and moisturizers.

The Maxine's Mop would not work to help with fall out. It is so dense that it would just smear everything. Good thought though =).
