Products I Regret Buying09:33
Everyone posts reviews about items they absolutely l o v e with the occasional review about items they didn't work out for them so well. However, I don't see many posts about products people regret buying and these are my favourite types of posts to read! These posts help me to stay away from products which received way more hype than they should have and to save that extra bit of money.
Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder
I bought this around a year ago at world duty free because I was in need of a new setting powder. I always set my make up when going out because I want my make-up to stay on for as long as possible. I did read some positive reviews on this product so I was expecting good results. However, once I apply this to my face it really sits into my pores making them visible. It also breaks down the foundation on my nose making it look extremely cracked. I tried applying it with a duo fibre face brush to pick up the least amount of product but this did not seem to fix this issue at all. Sometimes it made my make-up look so bad, I had to take it off and redo it! It safe to say I didn't receive the healthy glow which this product claimed to do.

YSL Terre Saharienne Bronzing Powder
I used to have such an amazing bronzer by YSL but unfortunately I lost it while on a night out. I knew YSL wouldn't have the exact one as it was bought many years ago so I wanted something similar, it did have a slight orange undertone with glitter but thats what I liked. When I went to the counter I told the assistant exactly what I was looking for and she recommended me shade 10. While she went off to collect the bronzer for me, I swatched shade 30 which was a matte bronzer with red undertones. She told me it wasn't suited for my skin and that it was discontinued, taking her advice I bought shade 10. However, Feel Unique was having a sale on and I saw that shade 30 was part of the sale so I purchased it. Shade 30 has become my holy grail bronzer and I'm so upset that its discontinued. As for shade 10? I hate it. The colour is quite light and I have a medium skin tone so the colour does not show up on my skin at all, its more like smearing glitter on your face. I have used it about twice but both times I didn't like it. Lesson I learnt from this experience was to always trust your own instincts when buying make-up!
