Products that I could do without...

Hey Dolls!

Have you ever been so intrigued with a product and you end up buying it and taking it home with you, only to find out in the end that it did not perform how you expected it would? I can't count how many times I have purchased products that simply never gave me the WOW factor and did not have the ability to impress me. Ahhh the perks of curiosity when it comes to trying out new beauty items. I suffer from that sorta curiosity...I need a cure, is there a doctor in the house?

Here is my list of products that are in the "never used" makeup stash LOL!

Sephora Colorful Mono Eyeshadow in Pearl N 05

I purchased this Sephora eyeshadow probably 2-3 years ago I don't know if it is available in Sephora anymore. But I think they re-vamped their whole eyeshadow line too. There is a whole bunch of this shadow left in the pot, as if I have never used it. This is a beautiful deep blue that contains very fine shimmers that don't really show up when you apply the shadow. I even think it is a dead on color dupe for MAC Deep Truth shadow. Pigmentation of this shadow performed poorly. I thought I was going to get a deep blue pop of rich color, but instead it just look faded and washed out when I applied. I wonder if the new Sephora eye shadows have more, rich pigment to them...Have any of you tried Sephora eyeshadows? which colors are your favorites?

E.L.F. Liquid Eyeliner in Black, Stardust, and Pearl ($1.00 each)

I am not much of a fan of liquid eyeliners but I had to give these a shot when I spotted the set at Target a few months ago which retailed for $3.00. If you want to see my review on these and swatches, click HERE. I thought these liners would be great, but the consistency was very runny, it felt very wet and it would take forever to dry. Not to mention the streaking that I endured when I tried applying these.

E.L.F. Dup Eyeshadow Cream ($1.00 each)

These cream shadows are great bases for eye shadows. The only gripe I have with these? They crease on me like crazy-even if I apply Urban Decay primer potion underneath. I think I blame the creasing in part due to my greasy lids. My lids oil up like crazy!

L.A. Girl Mega Pearl Eyeshadows in Orange Dream and Strawberry Daiquiri ($1.99? each)

I purchased both of these shadows in a beauty supply store at a mall in New Jersey and although the colors are so pretty and I love the shimmer these have, the pigmentation is very poor. When I applied these on my lids, all I saw was a lot of shimmer and a faint wash of the colors. After awhile, I find myself asking...where did the color go?

Have any of you tried any of the products mentioned above? What are some of your products that you can live without? Let me know in the comments section, I want to hear your thoughts :)
