Beauty Disappointments of 2011

This post is a negative, not so happy follow up to yesterday's post, Beauty Highlights of 2011. As mentioned in the Beauty Highlights of 2011 post, it's has been a big year for me as far as beauty goes. I created my blog, set myself up properly and invested in some fantastic beauty pieces. With that being said, I'd love to share my beauty disappointments of the past 365 days.

Unfortunately there have been some disappointments and I've tried to list them all but I can't be sure I didn't miss some. I don't want to give you a big explanation for each and every one (this post might go on forever) so I'll just be listing them and linking them to reviews if possible (if there's no review, expect one next year). 
The above products are in no particular order and I've just added them to the list as they came to mind. I'm sure there's a few more products I could've added, but I couldn't remember them. Sorry!

Stay tuned for my shopping haul (I went shopping today) but, until then, be sure to comment below with your beauty disappointments of 2011. I'd love to know which products to stay away from!

Always look your best,

  1. The Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector (the BB cream) was such a let down! I love the Maybelline BB cream, but this one was horrid! It left me shiny (and I have dry skin so thats saying something!)and burned like hell, hello facial rash! Complaining. Returning to manufacturer.

    The MAC Prolongwear concealor was probably another let down, the consistency was all wrong, way too runny and the colour (NW20) was too orange for my albino-ness

  2. Hey, Rebecca. I have the Garnier BB cream but I definitely don't find it to Ne a miracle cream. It's good, but not great. I can't wait to check out the Maybelline one, it sounds amazing!
    As for concealer, that sucks! Have you tried MAC's Select Cover Up concealer? I have that in NW20 and I don't find it to be too orange. x
